Please 'like' our fbook page VillaMaiyaRhodes for stories and information about the beautiful Island of Rhodes!

The Aegean Islands region

Rhodes is one of the Aegean Islands in Greece. It is the most popular of all the Greek Islands for good reason! It boasts magnificent beaches, dramatic scenery and has centuries of history just waiting to be explored. Rhodes enjoys over 300 days of sunshine a year with temperatures remaining pleasant year round. The averagage temperature in low to mid season is 25c and can rise to 35c-40c in high season which means the free air-conditioning throughout the villa can be a welcome relief!

The world famous town of Lindos with its cobbled streets and towering Acropolis and Rhodes Town (old and new) are both a sightseeing must. The people of Rhodes are friendly and hospitable and a wide variety of languages are spoken. The cuisine is of a very high standard in Rhodes, you will find both excellent local Greek food and International restaurants across the Island. The Island has a good transport system with affordable car hire readily available, a reliable bus service and an excellent taxi service.


Gennadi is a traditional year round village in the peaceful South of the Island with a wide range of amenities. It boasts an endless blue flag pebble beach and crystal clear, clean sea. The peaceful beach offers sun loungers and umbrellas for hire and has a selection of seafront tavernas. Villa Maiya is situated up a quiet pebbly road on an exclusive development of 9 properties each with private grounds and pools. Villa Maiya is semi-detatched to a single storey apartment. It has a stunning mountain backdrop with direct access to walking areas.

It is just a 20 minute drive from magnificent Lindos with all its beautiful tourist attractions.The sandy blue flag beach and wide selection of restaurants/bars at Pefkos is only a 15 minute drive away. Further South you will find Prassonissi where two different seas meet (Aegean and Mediterranean), it is said you can stand on the beach and have one foot in each sea! Prassonissi is popular for kite surfing and other extreme watersports all of which are available to try if you dare! Sun seekers will love nearby Glystra beach and Kiotari bay which are ideal places to relax with a good book. If you like a bit more activity the Islands 18 hole golf course at Afandou is a 40 minute drive. The exciting waterpark and extensive range of watersports at Falaraki are just a further 5 minute drive. Rhodes Town is a tale of two cities! The UNESCO world heritage site of the old Town with its medieval castle and ancient churches, and the New Town with its modern shops and restaurants/bars are a mere hour away.

"A great Villa, location and holiday"

"Very disappointing - cheap and nasty"

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review, we are extremely sorry we did not meet your expectations on this occasion. We are however surprised by the majority of your feedback.
We use one of the most reputable and experienced property maintenance companies in Rhodes who have friendly English staff. We have never had anything but praise over the cleanliness of the Villa and the maintenance service from past Guests. The same goes for the kitchen which Guests have also praised as being extremely well equipped. We do provide plastic picnic ware and kids plates and bowls which families appreciate (as advertised) which we assume you are referring to in your comments. Linens are refreshed yearly and also on an ad-hoc basis and are inspected before use for wear. Our furniture is standard design but minimal fuss, our sofas are even made from a special wipeable durable fabric so suntan lotion and drinks don't mark them! We want Guests, especially those with children to enjoy themselves not spend the holiday worrying about spillages and breakages.
Thank you for bringing some problems to our attention, all of which were rectified immediately. One of the dining room chairs unfortunately had a broken leg which has been replaced as has the cutlery for a better quality set from the UK. The pool timer had been re-set by previous Guests and has now been adjusted. In all hot countries ants and mosquitoes are active. An ant nest was found behind the cooker hood and immediately destroyed, we also have mosquito screens and provide plug in devices for Guests use. Our Guests who arrived a day after did not see any ants inside or report any further problems.
We provide a free 24hr maintenance and assistance line detailed in our extensive welcome folder(based in Rhodes). If any such problems as these should arise they can be swiftly dealt with satisfactorily so not to interrupt your holiday or inconvenience you further.
We unfortunately have no control over Guests in neighbouring Villas (as with booking any accommodation) but our fellow owners advertise on this site too and do not allow young groups. BBQs are not banned and the Greek BBQ is a favoured method of cooking by all the locals.

Thank you once again for your comments as we are constantly striving to improve for future Guests.

Thank you for your review and we are sorry you experienced problems finding Villa Maiya. We have updated our written directions and double checked our 2 maps that we provide all guests with, to ensure accuracy of signage etc. I have also now translated our written instructions into other languages to avoid any translation issues(previously only available in English). We also provide emergency contact details to use in any event of assistance being needed with anything such as this.
The Village of Gennadi is a quiet traditional Village away from the hustle and bustle but still only a 20 min drive from the main resort of Lindos and all the main tourist attractions. Villa Maiya has the feel of privacy and seclusion whilst actually only being a 400m stroll from the centre of the Village and all its amenities.
We always welcome feedback and are always striving to improve and hopefully have resolved this issue satisfactorily for future Guests.
Thank you once again.

"Perfect retreat, total relaxation"

Fantastic location, well equipped villa, perfect splash pool - very welcoming in the heat! Local village offers good food, great value, and friendly faces. Nearby are gorgeous sandy beaches ( at Glystra), luxury hotels that allow day passes, Pefkos and Lindos are more built up if you want to up the pace a bit - Lindos by night is well worth a visit.
Would highly recommend both the area and the villa - we travelled with 2 young children (5 & 3) and it was perfect - TV & DVD player, MP3/iPhone dock for music, games, books etc. The air conditioning was also a favourite!!!
If you're after total relaxation, you'll find it here :-)

"Great Villa in a Quiet Location"

The villa is quite large inside, with an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen flowing to an outdoor plunge pool, which was fantastic for the mid 30s heat of mid-summer. Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms, with comfortable beds and plenty of cupboard space, plus access to a communal balcony with sea view. The main bedroom also has its own small balcony. There is much-needed air conditioning throughout, with excellent doors and windows, with shutters that seal well against the heat.

The villa is located about one minute from Gennadi, up a gravel track, and the turn into the complex of several villas is tight. Villa Maiya is at the end of the complex, and as there is no ability to turn around - reversing out takes some getting used to but is manageable.

Gennadi has shops for basic provisons, and a couple of nice restaurants. The local beach is stoney, but has several restaurants overlooking the water. Larger villages with more facilities are less than 10 minutes drive away, and the fabulous Lindos is only 20 minutes. There's a lovely small, sandy beach 10 minutes away at Glystra, half way to Lindos, with calm waters and great for swimming.

Whilst Gennadi may be remote from the action further north, it's a lovely quiet location, with easy access around the island with a car. Rhodes is not that big, and nowhere is more than an hour's drive away.

"Super Villa & excellent base for exploring the island of Rhodes"

The villa was perfect for us, well equipped, comfortable and the location just right with uninterrupted views toward the sea. the air conditioning was very welcome at night.
We spent equal amounts of time cooling off in the sea at the local beach and in the pool, Really enjoyed the late night Cocktail Beach Bar which had their own stargazing telescopes just a few Km down the road.
Thoroughly recommended.
