About the property

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, shaded veranda, roof terrace, large garden private road.

Eden Villa is in an unrivalled position on the island for views and location. Megalo Horio village is only a 2 minute walk down our private road but the quietness, feeling of solitude and complete seclusion here makes for a truly relaxing holiday. The villa offers plenty of space for a holiday with family or friends. The ground floor has one bedroom, a bathroom and the fully equipped kitchen. On the 1st floor is a spacious living room leading out to a shady covered veranda which is perfect for breakfast time or evening meals. The 2nd floor has two further bedrooms and the second bathroom and on the 3rd floor is the roof terrace with superb views of the mountains, Eristos Bay and Megalo Horio, a traditional Greek whitewashed village built into the side of the mountain. Here you will find an excellent restaurant, ouzeri and kafenion; it also has a supermarket which sells everything you could need for your stay. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, e.g. travel arrangements or special rates.

FREE Wireless internet is available in the villa for unlimited internet/email access and is perfect for contacting friends or family by SKYPE or to stream live sporting events. We provide beach towels for your convenience for use around the swimming-pool or to take to the beach which will save you valuable space and weight in your suitcase.

How about spending Christmas on an unspoiled Greek Island with a roaring log fire and a locally reared turkey dinner? Eden Villa is the place at a very reasonable rental rate in a fantastic location. Email us for further details of what we can offer.

Our responsibility to the environment: we are aware of our responsibility to the environment, so here at Eden Villas we ask you conserve the water of the island wherever possible, we also have low energy light bulbs fitted throughout the property with solar lights in the garden and solar panels to heat the villa water tank. The swimming-pool lights and pump are on a timer for maximum efficiency not compromising the cleanliness of the pool which is checked daily by us to ensure the best possible quality swimming water.

We offer current guests 'first option' on the same dates for the following year for a 25% initial deposit. The balance then becomes due 10 weeks before their holiday.

Beautiful villa, stunning views and amazing pool

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two wonderful, memorable weeks at Eden Villa. Rob and Annie were the perfect hosts always there when you needed them but also very discrete. The villa was well maintained, clean and had the perfect pool; clean and much bigger than it looks in the photographs.

The villa is located on the edge of the village within a 3-minute walk to the local supermarket, café and restaurant. The views form all aspects of the villa were stunning, most evenings we ended up sitting on the roof top terrace gazing at the starry skies and spectacular views. We all grew very attached to Rob and Annie’s dog Fergie who was adorable.

The villa is in easy reach of three beautiful secluded beaches which are great for snorkelling and in peak season some practically empty. The main small port of Livadia is a short bus ride and offers a greater selection of shops and restaurants but still has beautiful views and uncluttered beaches.

We choose not to hire a car as there is a local bus service which runs to most places every two hours and only a short walk from the villa, there are stunning beaches and local restaurants. I would recommend the 20 minute walk to Agios Antonios (a small local port) where you can sit outside a great Taverna with stunning views and watch superb sunsets.

A late afternoon walk to Skaffee beech was also a highlight, the beech was empty, the sea clear and blue and the views amazing.

A climb to the local castle which is located behind the villa, also gave wonderful views over the island; watching the sunset was magical.

This is Greece how I experienced it 30 years ago and would love to return to Eden Villa and the memorable island of Tilos.

Fantastic place on fantastic island

  • 5 of 5

We travelled on the boat from Rhodes as a family (2 teenage daughters) and it was a wonderful experience! Such a lovely island with very hospitable locals - we left saying goodbye to dozens of them as friends.

The villa is outstanding with views of the island and sea from a number of perspectives- rooms with lovely window shutters and balconies where sitting is comfortable and relaxing. The pool is spot-on and spotless with plenty of loungers and places to arrange them for either group or solo time.

Annie and Rob are perfect hosts and helped with everything we could hope for - local introductions (the restaurants are top drawer) and port collection/ drop-off.

The local village is a real treat with nice bars/ restaurants and a superb general store. There is a very easy bus service from right on the doorstep to everywhere you would want to go on the island. It’s so easy and great way to join local life.

We will certain return as soon as possible. I highly recommend the villa, Rob and Annie and the entire island!

So Good You Want To Keep It All For Yourself...

  • 5 of 5

The visitors book shows that this eden has a following who return year on year. Those who have stayed there know why.

If there is space available for your dates then discard every other choice and BOOK EDEN VILLA IMMEDIATELY! To not do so would be to commit a gross error toward yourself.

If your dates are not available, good luck, join the queue.

Eden Villa is booked out months/year in advance for good reason.

Full Respect to wonderful Rob and wonderful Annie

(and their Kohl-Eyed, High-Priestess, Fergie).

Peace, Comfort and a Great Village

  • 5 of 5

A pool to enjoy, a cool house in hot weather, a view to the sea down the valley and very good restaurant and cafe in the village 5 minutes walk away ( and another gem Filoxenia 20 minutes walk). And in that village enough tourism so that you feel at ease but it has not has not swamped the character or layers of history. The hosts Rob and Annie are very friendly, helpful and at hand. We intend to return.

A Little Piece of Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Both my Husband and I have visited many Greek Islands during our "younger" years. Our 16 year old daughter wanted to holiday on a Greek Island and when looking we liked everything written about Tilos for her first Greek experience - no McDonalds, Nightlife, Irish bars with satellite TV and Sky Sports permanently blaring out - you get the idea! Oh, the other criteria from her was "it MUST have a pool".

This immediately narrowed it down to one - Eden Villas, owned, maintained and looked after beautifully by Rob and Annie.

We immediately booked . . . . . . 2 years in advance. It was so worth the wait though. Prior to our arrival Rob and Annie could not have been more helpful providing links to ferry companies and hotels in Rhodes and general information when asked.

We arrived on a very hot sunny day and, as promised, Rob was waiting for us as we came off the ferry from Rhodes. He took us up to Eden Villas, having first driven round showing us useful places such as the ATM (they don't take credit cards, only cash on the Island), local supermarket (which was just superb) and good restaurants.

We were made so welcome on arrival at the villa. It was meticulously presented and had absolutely everything we needed and more. Being so hot, the ceiling fans were very welcome and aided keeping the villa cool. Not a single bug came into the villa either.

My Husband loves a BBQ and Rob very kindly set this up for us to use. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa was kept very clean and both Rob and Annie were attentive but without interrupting our privacy. They were also extremely accommodating and understanding in keeping their dog, Fergie, away during our two week stay, as both my daughter and I are fearful of dogs - this was so appreciated.

The views from the rooftop veranda were simply stunning and the perfect end to each day was drinking a Metaxa and looking up at the stars listening to the Little Owls calling to each other across the valley.

The swimming pool was very well maintained by Rob and loved by us all.

All in all it was one of the best family holidays. Now we are two weeks away from Christmas, we still talk fondly of our holiday at Eden Villas.

We would thoroughly recommend and will definitely return. Rob told us that when you arrive at Tilos you just don't want to leave, and he was so right.

Tilos is one of the most southerly Greek Islands situated close to the Turkish coast near Rhodes and Kos in the Dodecanese. Smaller than its more famous neighbours it is still largely unknown and having avoided mass tourism it remains one of the few genuinely unspoiled Greek Islands. Tilos has two villages, Megalo Horio the capital and Livadia the port. Our village is a 2 minute walk from the villa with restaurants and a cafenion but is far enough away for total peace and quiet. There is also a museum which has bones from a dwarf elephant which were found in a nearby cave some years ago. Eden Villa has one of only five swimming-pools on the island and is the only property for rent with a private swimming-pool. It is not overlooked and offers spectacular views of Skafi valley, the surrounding mountains and Eristos Bay to the south which boasts the best beach of many on the island. The mountain behind the villa features a ruined 15th century castle which can be reached on foot in about 45 mins.

Other Activities: Island boat tours with BBQ. Excellent birdwatching. Snorkeling. Fishing. Deep sea fishing. Ancient monastery and many restored chapels. Abundant wild flowers in spring.
