It was well equipped with a small courtyard at the front for early morning breakfast outside and a lovely cool, shady roof terrace that caught the breezes for lunch and later. Nothing was too much trouble for our host and owner, who lived just across the road, so was accessible without being intrusive. He even lengthened the bed for my tall husband! The village of Malona is about ten minutes by car from a safe sandy beach, and about 20 minutes from Lindos, 40 minutes from Rhodes Town. There was a supermarket in the village and bakery, a restaurant and bars, all within easy walking distance. The people were friendly and we felt as if we were living amongst the locals. The air conditioning worked well and we had all we needed, including wifi. We had a relaxing quiet time and, with our rented car, managed to see most of what the island offered during our two week stay.
