“Lovely, comfortable villa, good location” Accommodation was good quality, very spacious with modern decor. Outdoor area was very well designed, with a dining table in the sun, but also a second table and some comfortable seating in the shade. Pool was large enough for our party size of 6 adults, and the BBQ was well used. Kitchen and indoor dining area was spacious, but lounge area could have been better laid out. Only 5 minutes drive from lovely Lindos, and the same distance to the smaller village of Pefkos. Lots of supermarkets nearby, so very easy to stock up on groceries. Great views of the mountain and sea from the back of the villa. The only gripe is that the air conditioning wasn't working properly in one of the bedrooms, and we couldn't get the DVD player to work, but this didn't spoil the holiday. We reported it on the last day to the agent who came to clean the pool, and they said they would look at this. Would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing stay with the huge benefit of a private pool.
Rhodes has been a popular holiday destination for centuries. Its history is weaved together by Greek mythology and culture, which still heavily influences it today.
Rhodes is great for history lovers, and those who love an idyllic beach holiday. If either of those is you, book a holiday rental in Rhodes today!
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands and has the nickname The Island of the Knights. This is because the knights of Saint John of Jerusalem conquered this land centuries ago, but that's only part of the area's history.
This island is famous worldwide for its ancient architecture and iconic history, so go to as many museums and historical hotspots as you can during your stay. It’ll be well worth it!
What to Do
The Archaeological Museum of Rhodes is also worth visiting. Take a guided tour so you can really understand the history of this area – it spans back to the Stone Age. Keep an eye out for the wall mounted mosaics – they're very impressive!
After a long day soaking up culture, head to the beach. Agios Pavlos is one of our favourites – it's a small secluded bay where clear blue water laps against the golden shore.
Top Rhodes Travel Tips
The Palace of the Grand Master ticket usually includes a trip to the Archaeological Museum, so why not see both? It's well worth it to find out more about the island's history.
Pick your holiday rental in Rhodes and discover the ancient history of this idyllic island.

The villa is very spacious and extremely well equipped and Maria has put her own finishing touches on it, with lots of little extra's, for example a beautiful fruit bowl on arrival.

Wow, absolute and total luxury. We have just returned from a beautiful villa on a beautiful island. In a perfect position on the beautiful island!!.
Thank you to Andy, who was contactable to answer any questions we had about the villa and booking.
You want for nothing at the villa, absolutely everything is there, the kitchen is well equipped and perfect.
We were all very sad to leave..... you nearly ended up with squatters!!! Lol.
The pool is also massive and sooo clean, it was cleaned regularly while we were there. The villa was also cleaned during our stay which was lovely.
We also got married while we were there, so thank you for an amazing holiday to remember. We will definitely be back.
Thank you very much …
Beautiful Villa in amazing surroundings
Six family members stayed at the Villa as my Brother was getting Married in Pefkos. The Villa is beautiful and the views of the surrounding area are exceptional. Effie and her family made us very welcome! …
A spacious, tastefully designed, modern villa
Great Villa, great pool.
A really lovely big villa, with a great pool, large spacious rooms and well presented, great outdoor covered areas on both the ground and first floor, there were only 4 of us so a double bedroom for us and one for each of our children. If there had been 12 of us we would have needed more sun beds around the pool and probably some more pots, pans, serving bowls as these were a bit limited although there were plenty of glasses, cutlery and crockery. We liked the area as it was quiet but near enough to Pethkos, Lindos and Lahania to find plenty of great places to eat and lots to do, particularly all the water sports at Pethkos, great beach bar there for lunch. We were disappointed as the dishwasher seemed to make everything worse than when it went in, when we used it on the last day, but apart from that a great villa, great pool and great area. We do think there should be a folder with useful information about the villa and local things to see and do and some recommendations for restaurants, although we are at a different restaurant every night and were never disappointed. …
Olive Grove House, Haraki, Rhodes, Greece
Have just returned from a fabulous 10 day stay at Olive Grove. Villa had everything we needed and was in such a peaceful setting. We had an issue with the kids pool which had a puncture when we arrived but the owner Maxine replaced it within the day so can t ask for more than that. Absolutely loved Haraki. A beautiful relaxing resort with plenty of places to eat. The view at night of the lit up Feraklos castle ruins was amazing. Nearby Agathi beach is stunning. We visited Lindos a few times which is breathtaking. Had a donkey ride up to the acropolis which the kids loved. All in all a Lovely holiday. Will definitely be returning. …
