About the Owner
About Joy Trakkas
I live in Newcastle in the picturesque village of Tynemouth with my Greek husband and 3 daughters.
We are sun worshippers and don't get enough of it in Tynemouth, as beautiful as it is.
Rhodes makes up for that!
Joy Trakkas purchased this villa in 2009
Why Joy Trakkas chose Greece
We fell in love with the island of Rhodes, having visited friends and family there and decided to have our own property in the South of the island as it is extremely beautiful and unspoilt, but not remote!
What makes this villa unique
The highlights of the villas has to be the tranquillity of the site, whilst accessibility to shops, tavernas, beaches and water sports is convenient.
The glittering stars in the night sky are something truly unique here, and to sit on the upper veranda sipping an early evening glass of local champagne gazing at them is indescribably magical.
The panoramic view of Gennadi Bay beyond the little white washed church of St. Raphael is awe inspiring. Early morning sun rises are an experience not to be missed!
To make a booking, either call or e-mail Joy. There is a 25% deposit payable to secure the booking. A returnable damage deposit of 200 pounds or euros is required and on final inspection will be reimbursed if all is satisfactory.

Peace and relaxation
We spent 2 amazing weeks at Villa Phoebe. - Our 2nd visit. The villa is one of 3 set in a peaceful tranquil location just a few minutes from Gennadi village. The villa itself is comfortable ,clean and well equipped with the WiFi working well most of the time. The views from the villa are out of this world looking out to sea and the sunrise is is worth getting up early for,I watched several over the 2 weeks. The pool is a reasonable size and cleaned on a regular basis. Joy the owner gave us a good guide to the village and surrounding area and also good directions from the airport and was always there to contact if we needed to ask anything.So if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday I would definitely recommend Villa Phoebe
One of the best!
Villa Phoebe is superbly located with amazing views over Gennadi Bay. The tranquillity of the setting (tinkling goat bells being the only "noise" in the background) is perfect for a relaxing & comfortable holiday. Close to a "real" village with 2 or 3 excellent, good-value tavernas & a well-stocked mini-market, grocery & bakery, it provides the base for an authentic Rhodean experience. The proximity of the coast, with numerous other eating places of a high quality, the wealth of interesting places to visit on the island & the warmth of the welcome/help offered by Joy & her family made for a most pleasant stay. The villa is of a high standard & the barbecues under the stars will be long remembered. 5-star plus!

Activity and Interests
Gennadi Bay has a blue flag award with a distance of 2 minutes by car, from the villas. It has very clear, warm water with shingle and pebbles and is never spoilt by crowds of people. It boasts 3 good tavernas for tasty meals and refreshments. Kiotari is 4km away and has sandy beaches, good tavernas, great bars and glass-bottomed boats. Prassonissi is 20km away and has fantastic facilities for all water sports.
Diagoras International Airport is 45 minutes away by car (roughly 60kms) as is the infamous Old Town of Rhodes. It is possible to hire taxis from the airport, with a cost of about 70 euros. Buses are also available, however it is recommended to hire a car in order to make the most of your stay.
Gennadi Bay and village are 1 mile away, and Lindos, with its sandy beaches and medieval Acropolis is 25km North (15 mins by car)- the unique and beautiful Old Town is 65km North. Traditional Rhodian villages, Vati, Lahania, Pefkos and Lardos are all in the very near vicinity.
Prassonissi (where the Aegean sea meets the Mediterranean sea) with its wonderful refreshing sea-breezes, makes for excellent wind/kite surfing and is only a 20 minute drive away.
In the village of Gennadi, there is an excellent bakery, pharmacist, green grocer and small supermarket. There are numerous tavernas serving local fayre, Mama's Kitchen being a firm favourite, there are beach front tavernas also serving good quality, local cuisine, and drinks.
The West Coast of the island boasts many interesting places to visit from the ruins of a castle at Kastello near Kritinia, to the castle at Monolithos, steeped in romanticism set on top of a rock. The jewel in the crown has to be the Old Town, 45 minutes drive away, with its wonderful history from ancient Greece, Byzantine, Turkish mosques to the Knights of Saint John and medieval Christian churches.

- Notes on accommodation: Villas Sophie, Nicole and Phoebe are nestled beautifully on the hillside over-looking Gennadi Bay. The trio lie in private grounds, accessible by private track. This creates a sense of relaxation and privacy, unachievable by mainstream resorts. With the extensive pergolas, generous-sized pools and roomy outdoor spaces, these villas are the perfect accommodation for a relaxed and luxurious holiday on the captivating island of Rhodes. Large enough to accommodate families of 5, with the living room playing host to the villas comfortable sofa-beds, a couple of minutes drive from the sun-kissed beach and alluring village of Gennadi, this trio of villas provide the ultimate family holiday. The village and bay of Gennadi are approximately a mile from the villas, hiring of a car would be recommended to take advantage of what this area has to offer. Outside: Complete with all the outdoor essentials– attractive barbeque, dining table and chairs, sun loungers and parasol, guests can sunbathe by day and dine alfresco by night. The spacious outdoor and pergola areas make for the perfect setting for family barbeques whilst watching the sun drop gently over Gennadi Bay. Child-friendly as each villa has gates to the grounds, also no villa is overlooked by the neighbours.
