“Best holidays”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent a wonderful time in villa N1. We were with two young children and no better place to find. Villa is located In a very quiet, secluded place. You can hear the sound of the see from the windows, and a very nice green zone in front of the villa is really grate for kids game. Also big pool makes your holidays more fantastic.
Inside of the villa is also very good. Well furnished, very comfortable, grate kitchen with really big fridge. Thanks to the Kostas care, who made the villa also safety for kids.
We found the location is perfect for quite and relaxing pastime with children. And if you want more noise and a lot of bars, you may reach Faliraki within 5 min by the car. Also in Afoundou there are some restaurants and bars.
The beach is very close to villa, 7 min by walk and 2 min by car. The beach is very big, cleanest water and not many people.
And also the special and huge thanks to Kostas,Nelly, Afroditi and Teo! They are grate people, very welcomed and kind!
So I think that it is the best place on the island to have a grate time as with children and with friends!

“Desolation in Rhodes”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

I have just returned from two weeks spent in this property, which we rented out entirely (all the 3 villas) in 3 families. Overall we were very disappointed, both by the location and by the property.

Location was probably the biggest issue. Aphandou is by far the most desolated section of the Rhodes-Lindos coast, a collection of dumps, unfinished houses, abandoned crops. It’s not the wilderness one can expect and even seek on Greek islands, it’s just a depressed neighbourhood with absolutely no charm. Despite with very clear waters, the beach (pebbles) is also sad, with rusty sunbeds and a very cheap attendance. There is only one section of the beach which we really liked, and it’s the northern part (Triganou), but you need a car to go there from the property.
The houses are built in the middle of nowhere, and in the kind of nowhere I just described. The owner advised to close all curtains every time we left the house for security. The view you have from the pools is either abandoned crops, or dumps of building materials, or things like that. There is really nothing to can do there without taking your car (you need a car even to go to the trash bin).

The premises are extremely poor: the fences are an unfinished combination of concrete and rusty wires, the common areas are left totally wild. The houses externally are unfinished and not well maintained: the “garden” in front of the pool is completely dry as it has not been watered for years, the pool is fenced by the same combination of concrete and wire that “protects” the properties, etc. Inside, the décor is in line with what the pictures show (“neutral”), but even here maintenance is poor: my sink splashed water 360degrees when opened, forcing me to stand 1 meter from it to wash my hands, front doors are bendy and difficult to close, the house is not well isolated so heats up like hell forcing you to a/c all the time, etc..

On the positive, the houses are equipped as described and the appliances work fine. The family owning and running the place is nice and happy to help if needed. For such a large house and such a touristy island the price is probably ok. We tried to get a discount the first day as we were really frustrated, but looking backword that was probably unfair. The point is whether you want to spend your holidays there, and I wouldn’t even at half the price I paid.
In summary, and having visited over 10 Greek islands in depth, I struggle to find one reason to go to Aphandou, and specifically to this property, unless you just want a big house with a pool and don’t care about anything else (looking at the other reviews, for many people this must be the case...).

If you feel miserable of course an easily repaired sink and door can spoil your holidays.
Apparently all the people they do not look in their holidays to relax but to have intense night life.
Unless you do not have a 7 star property do not let these persons in your house.
They will make you feel bad no matter how hard you try to please them.
My answer to their comments is the 50 good reviews I have on different sites.
I wish them all the best for their next choice of holidays.

“First class”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We arrived late in the evening and Kostas, the owner, was waiting for us to whisk us to the villa, which was one of 4 with Kostas and his lovely wife Nelly occupying one of them.

We didn't the real feel of the place until the following morning when it was light. The villa itself was fantastic with everything we needed, although we did have to ask for an iron and board. The only other thing missing was a hair dryer so bear that in mind.

The apartment is set back from the wide and long beach but you have great views out to sea over the adjacent golf course.

We were there at the Ed of season but that didn't bother us as we were looking for a bit of peace and quiet, which we got in abundance.

There is still plenty of things going on if you want it and during season it will be buzzing but you do need a car. Kostas has a friend with a car hire company just a stroll away but he took us there and got a good deal.

This is a place to recommend for couples or larger families as there a three good rooms, enough bathrooms and areas to hide away. The pool I great, large enough for good swim and the poolside area is great for BBQs.

Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

“Great villa with excelent swimming pool - Run by a charming couple”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed here in August 2013 and the Villa is really nicely decorated and is in a small gated complex giving a sense of security which would be really good for families with small children.
Costas and Nelly were really friendly and helpful without being imposing. The garden was nice and the pool was fantastic as it was reasonably deep and sizeable enough for a good swim and well maintained. (Care might be needed with non-swimmers).
A car is pretty much essential if you want to visit different restaurants as there are only a few within walking distance.
The beach is really nice in a long sweeping cove and is walkable fairly easily.
Some parts are a little pebbly but this is not enough to be a problem. There is a bar right by the access track to the villa which is very convenient.
The décor in the villa is very nice and was prepared perfectly for our arrival. Everything was 'spotless'.

Absolutely amazing accommodation, anything you might need you'll find in the house. The house is new , the pool is great , garden also and the owners are always ready to satisfy your requests, always interested if you're enjoying the stay. The location is simply the best, near the beach at a 2 minutes walk distance and easy to access all other points of interest. We want to thank once again Neli and Kostas for their hospitality . The house absolutely completed our fabulous vacation.
