About the property

Villa in Rhodes, Greek Islands, Greece - Peaceful Location | West Coast Rhodes | Kitesurfing | Biking | Hiking | Families

****** Winter Rental Available Please Contact for More Information***

******* Euros and Sterling accepted ********

The Citrus House is our second home and we have opened it up for people to come and enjoy the delights of the west coast of Rhodes. I endeavour to make our guests experiences a great one. Whilst we have a few reviews on here (most guests find us by word of mouth) our guest book in the villa speaks a million words. Its a journal spanning 6 years and people love it, it's like a pen and paper version of Trip Advisor.

A beautiful spacious self catering villa on the west coast of Rhodes. Suitable for families, groups and couples. Three large bedrooms sleeping up to six people. Private garden and plunge pool. Sea and mountain views and only 5 minutes walk from the local beach.

Great for Kite surfing, walking, biking or as a base for exploring the rest of the island. Just a 20 minute drive from the airport and a 30 minute drive from Rhodes Town. The local bus runs frequently from the main road just a couple of minutes walk away. We can arrange flexible car hire for a very reasonable price with a no fuss hassle free service.

The villa sits on the edge of a gorgeous little Greek village called Kalavarda. Here you can embrace the Greek way of life, in fact it's very hard not too. Our guests are always welcomed into the local taverna's, the Greek ladies who go for their morning swim most days will always shout 'Kalimera' , the local baker man will bring fresh bread and cakes to your door if you make your presence known to him.

Life in Kalavarda is simple, slow and wonderful!

The house is professionally maintained with our English housekeepers living close by.

About Karen Wilson

Hi I'm Karen from Holiday Cafe, I am extremely privileged to own our house on Rhodes and help friends run and market several other properties 'Villa Petra' & 'Luz Villa'.

My family & I visit all the properties regularly and can assure you they're all fantastic!.

Appreciating how hard we all work in order to enjoy annual holidays in the sunshine I make it my mission to ensure the whole process is as easy as it can be and promise I'm always at the end of an email / phone.

So if you're wanting an easy, enjoyable experience with guidance from someone who loves all things Mediterranean look no further. Contact me today for more information.

Karen Wilson purchased this villa in 2008

Why Karen Wilson chose Kalavarda

Kalavarda is a pretty little village on the west coast of the island. Away from the crowds this village is the perfect place to relax and gather your thoughts or if you like a more active holiday then hiring a bike couldn't be easier with the bike hire man just across the road. It's also great for hiking, walking and is quickly becoming well known amongst the Kite Surf community for it's newly opened Kite Surf centre.

Although traditional and quiet it still has several tavernas and is only a 5 minute walk to the local beach. Just a 20 minute drive from the airport and 30 minutes from Rhodes Town with plenty of larger and equally as lovely villages along the coast road.

Kalavarda is a truly wonderful little village with some truly wonderful friendly people.

What makes this villa unique

The house is perfectly situated for you to enjoy both mountain and see views. It boasts it's own private garden and plunge pool. The house is cleverly designed with the bedrooms downstairs so they are nice and cool in the heat of the summer sun.

The house has a large open plan fully equipped living area upstairs plus two balconies so you really can catch the sun or if you prefer, the shade all day long. And no matter where you sit you will enjoy beautiful views.

Perfectly situated next to a citrus grove at certain times of the year it's possible to go pick your own fruits or you may even open your front door one morning to find a bag left for you by the local farmer.

We have equipped the house with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From start to finish the process of booking etc was well informed and efficient.

The information regarding the villa – location etc was excellent. The information once we arrived at the villa was great – the guest book in particular gave lots of information and ideas for travelling around.

The villa itself – comfortable, clean. Facilities great and made a massive difference to what we needed to take with us making packing easier and lighter.

Everything well thought out from mobile phone to torch.

A well presented property in a quiet village

  • 4 of 5

A very relaxed place to stay and enjoyed exploring Rhodes. On a negative note, a proper shower not just a hand held shower head to wash down with in a bath without even a shower curtain would have been better and the plunge pool had a lot of gravel in it, feel it should have been cleaned before we arrived, but overall a good place.

Everything you could want or need

  • 5 of 5

Karen has thought of everything with this place. It's a great space with a lovely balcony and garden in an authentic Greek village. Quieter side of the island and wilder sea, perfect for kitesurfers.

Easy to get to from the airport and helpful maintenance man Steve helped us with an inexpensive taxi to a wedding.

Great place. Highly recommended.

2 weeks in Rhodes

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house, not far away from the beach. The village is very typical, no many tourist and the Greeks are very friendly. The villa is a terraced house, so you have neighbours (we didn't read it and we think that it's an important information).

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our villa. Sorry you didn't know there was neighbours, I hope they didn't disturb you too much. Yes the house is semi detached and maybe I need to note that on the description. Thanks for staying in our villa and I hope we can welcome you back in the future. Karen

Relaxation at it's best

  • 5 of 5

A glorious stay in a beautiful place.

You couldn't wish for a more relaxing place to wyle away the time and the beautiful Greek sun.

It had everything we needed in a lovely friendly village where we were made to feel so welcome.

Somehow I don't think it will be the last time we visit Citrus House.

Thanks to Karen for making the booking so easy. And for Steve for helping when we got there.

Special interest holidays:

Having owned the house for 5 years and spent many more years visiting Rhodes, I have lots of contacts on the island which means I often get asked by guests to arrange particular activities for them If you would like to Horse Ride, Kite Surf, Mountain Bike, Attend an out door Yoga class in Rhodes Old Town, Hire A Boat or have a guided tour of the island then just let me know. I can arrange pretty much anything for you.


The closest beach is Kalavarda Beach, which is a short 5 minute walk down a quiet road. This particular beach is targeted towards the Kite Surfers in the summer months although locals still do use it for their daily swim. There are no sun loungers here although there is two tavernas selling drinks and local Greek food. A few minutes drive both north and south of the coast road you will find several beaches with loungers, parasols, children's play areas and tavernas.


The villa is an easy pleasant 20 minute drive from the airport along the coast road. The closest port is Rhodes Town which is just a 30 minute drive away. Whilst a car is not essential we would generally recommend one if you wish to explore the island. We can arrange a very flexible and competitive car hire deal for you. We arrange it all prior to travel and it will be ready and waiting for you on arrival. Further information available upon request.


Distance to the ruins of ancient Kamiros - approx 3 miles

Distance to Fanes village & beach - approx 5 miles

Distance to Butterfly Valley - approx 15 miles

Distance to Mandriko Harbour (a daily boat to Halki) - approx 8 miles

Distance to Rhodes Towm - approx 35 miles

Distance to Airport - approx 20 miles

Further Details:

Rhodes has everything you could ever wish for, Wether you want relaxation or adrenalin activities you will be sure to find it. Rhodes is a fast becoming one of the Kite Surfing hotspots of Europe. With keen Kiters flocking here throughout the summer months. Kalavarda is situated on the west coast of the island which is renowned for its constant cross-shore winds, making it one of the top Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing destinations in Europe.

Kalavarda itself is an all year round village as it doesn't depend on tourism, here you will eat predominantly with the locals.

The village shops stocks all your essentials however if you are wanting to stock up for the duration of your stay then there are two larger supermarkets a 5-10 minute drive away as well as fish mongers, butchers, fruit and veg shops and ATM's all within a short drive.

The local baker delivers around the village daily (except weekends) and honks his horn on his rounds. If you listen for him and watch for his white van he has lots of fresh bread, pies and cakes most days. Just be sure to be ready to wave him down quickly as he is often in a rush (most unlike the Greeks we I know).
