Lemonia house is a stone-built house made before 1928 (year that was first registered) with original hand made pebble floors, last restored in 1954, as written on the living room floor. The last renovation finished in 2012.

The house consists of one kitchen, a living room, a bedroom, 1 big bathroom, an extra toilet, one big interior courtyard and there is a roof terrace as well, with sunbeds. The kitchen has a high sleeper with double bed, the living has 2 high sleepers with each a single bed, and the bedroom has a double bed as well. the high sleepers each have their own stairs going up, and curtains in front of it, for privacy.

The large living room offers a discrete comfort adjusted to the village's style with many of it's original furniture and a big dining table enough for six persons. The kitchen is fully equipped with all devices for a comfortable stay and with direct access to the living room and also to the courtyard table.

The interior courtyard leads to another toilet and has a nice barbeque. The privacy that the courtyard has to offer makes it ideal for sunbathing or outdoor dining.

The house also has a washing machine, a dish washer, free Wi-Fi, a telephone for incoming calls.

There are some things, that cannot be placed in this booking system, so i will put them down here:

* there is a final cleaning fee of 90 euros.
* there is optional airco available, 2 devices of 5 euros each, so 10 euros per night for the airco.

if these costs can't be placed into the bookings, i will have to charge them locally.

The South Aegean region

The area around the Lemonia house is one that is typical Greek: old ladies sitting outside, watching their grandchildren play, preparing the food of the day and chatting the day away. It is not a touristic area, so if you are looking for the typical tourist holiday, then this is not the holiday for you. The street where the Lemonia house is, is car free, so your children can safely play outside maybe with the other Greek kids, while you don't have to worry about traffic. It is also an area where you can leave your door open and feel safe and comfortable. It's a big success with people who care to spend their holiday in the Greek way, with a Greek atmosphere.

Just outside of Koskinou
Waterpark - Just outside of Koskinou on the Rhodes Faliraki/Kalithea road (the road parallel with the Rodou-Lindou road, but then on the sea side) is the Waterpark for big fun for the younger ones, with huge slides and all sorts of water entertainment.

Playland - This is a caf just on the corner of the Faliraki/Kalithea road and Koskinou, where you can have lots of different kinds of caf while the staff watches over your children.
Lunapark - Again on the Faliraki/Kalithea road but more towards or in Faliraki, is the Lunapark, Tivoli park, entertainment for your children.

Beaches/Coasts - There are several sandy beaches just around and a short drive away from Koskinou, and only just a bit further from Tsaire. Some with pebbles and some rocky ones. Some quiet ones and some busy ones. There are beaches with water sports, diving schools and beach bars. One thing they all have in common: they all have a shower, a restaurant or at least a cantina and above all a crystal clear blue sea.

Thermen Kalithea - This is a very special beach place that is part of the Koskinou municipality, just outside of Koskinou on the main road Rhodes-Faliraki. Thermen Kalithea was originally a health spa, built in the Moorish style by the Italians in the 1920's. It was recently restored and boasts beautiful mosaic pebbled paths, leading to the beach and a beautiful spa resort. Underground there is a fantastic building with on the floor again the pebbled mosaic and a fountain, while there are permanent art exhibitions. There is a gorgeous beach bar with soft chill music that opens until late at night with nice cocktails, snacks and beverages, and one can really spend all day here, relaxing, sunbathing on the sun beds, strolling around in the underground buildings and enjoying the marvelous views. There is a very small entrance fee above the price for the sun beds, but for those who want to experience the good life, this shouldn't be an obstacle

Koskinou

Koskinou village exists of 2 parts: the old village/town, and around it the new area. As our interest with renting, and in general, only goes out to traditional, authentic places, we only speak about the old part in this website. In the old part (which is a village of its own), the houses date back to the 17th,18th and 19th century. Like in many places in Greece about 40 years ago people started abandoning their old stone family houses, to move into modern cement buildings out of the village centers or creating new centers.

The houses then became ruins and were rediscovered and bought in their original state by foreigners, Greeks from Athens and some times local Greeks. They renovated these beautiful houses and recently all kinds of committees are being formed to keep or bring back the houses in the authentic state. Typical for the village is the sala (living room) with a big stone arch (Kamarra) through the middle to make a semi separation. Another thing that is typical are the chochlakia, floors in which pebbles (found on the beach) are laid, stone by stone into a typical, magnificent mosaic floor. These floors nowadays cost a fortune to produce. Again a typical thing of the houses in Koskinou is that they have wooden sofas in the sala, high raised platforms, on which one or 2 mattresses were laid, for sleeping or where they used to drink tea. The last typical thing for Kosknou are the courtyards surrounded by high walls for total privacy and closed off by iron handmade doors with a beautiful design in it.

The streets of Koskinou are covered by chochlakia (pebbles), tiles and marble. There are some small springs at the edges of the old village and there is a museum somewhere in the middle, where one can see how the people used to live and how the houses looked like in the older days: well worth a visit. Then there is a lunch/tea room (called Stefani, which is a circle of flowers that people hang on their doors at the first of May), run by a Finnish/Swedish lady, who serves coffee, tea, some cakes and ice cream. Attached to this café is a showroom/museum totally left or brought back in the traditional way, so again one can experience how life was in the centuries before. This lady gives cooking lessons and Greek lessons.
