Yiannis Karagiannis purchased this villa in 2010

Why Yiannis Karagiannis chose Rhodes

Property Renovated in 2011.The property is situated in a quiet and residential area but on the same time only 7 minutes away from all the branded shops, bars and restaurants of the centre of the Medieval city of Rhodes.

What makes this villa unique

Laookontos house, a spacious medieval residence built on the foundations of the Crusaders. Wood and stone, marble and stylish textile motives create an aura of chic opulence inviting guests to relax in splendor. The garden is fitted with elegant furnishings ensuring a pleasurable escape within the property. We have carefully restored it to become a beautiful and vast self-catering house for couples and families who want to experience the magical Old Town of Rhodes from the inside. This is a special and unique place to stay, a peaceful and intimate retreat in the bustle of an incredible city. So if you like a ambiance to your holiday of soft white sheets, candlelit evenings, ancient cobbled streets and tavernas around the corner, all whilst still being five minutes walk from the harbor and just minutes from reclining on the beach in a deckchair, this is the place for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from a great week in Rhodes where we stayed in this fabulous house in the heart of the Old Town of Rhodes. Whilst outside shows the burden of time on the properties around, when you enter the door to 6 Laokontos you enter into a peaceful private courtyard leading to a stunning modern home. The property has been modernised throughout and offers all the space, comfort and equipment that you will need. There is a good sized kitchen with large fridge/freezer, a small but spacious lounge with plenty of seating, a dining table and a new TV system with plenty of channel choices. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with loads of storage space. One has an en-suite shower room and the other has use of a seperate shower room downstairs. The beds were lovely and comfortable. Yiannis the owner has done a great job modernising the property and is so helpful wanting everyone who uses his property to be comfortable and relaxed. Great location, spacious and well fitted out and with an owner who makes you feel so welcome, we would recommend this property.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house in a great location. Very peaceful but only 5 minutes walk into town.

Yiannis is a lovely guy,he welcomed us when we arrived,left us with everything we needed for our stay,sorted our transfers,nothing seemed any trouble.

The house was spotlessly clean and finished to a high standard,would highly recommend this property.

Excellent property and service. The owner had thought of everything and was very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The owner arranged for a taxi to take us from the airport to the accommodation and met us at the property, despite our late arrival. He had also provided us with food for breakfast the next day and other useful essentials and luxuries. He was very helpful in explaining about the property and pointing out where the best supermarket was and helped out when I lost my mobile phone. I had tracked it to a hotel on the other side of the island and he contacted the hotel and the local bus station to enable me to retrieve it. The accommodation was very well appointed and we were able to enjoy time there as well as exploring the old town. This is the best accommodation we have stayed in and there was so much to see and do in the old town. The owner also organised a taxi back to the airport and because we were staying for two weeks, organised for the house to be cleaned and the linen to be changed and provided us with another bottle of the local wine. We were also allowed to stay at the property until 8:00pm as we had a late flight back to the UK. Definitely a must and a pleasure to meet the owner. Thank you for providing an excellent service.

Amazing old town property

  • 5 of 5

The details of this fantastic house are understated. The quality of the accommodation is fantastic - very modern, spacious and tastefully installed. The rooms are large with high ceilings. The private patio offers lots of shade. The house is situated at the heart of the old town, just a few minutes walk from the city gate and less than five minutes from a range of quality restaurants.

Yiannis provided a very generous welcome pack - cheese, ham, eggs, butter, bread, tea bags, coffee and several bottles of water. There was also a bottle of ouzo and sparkling wine!

The property is very quiet and is not overlooked.

We took Yiannis' advice and took a taxi from the airport.

A cool retreat in Rhodes Old Town

  • 5 of 5

It's a medieval building on the outside and a stylish modern apartment on the inside. It was the perfect base for exploring Rhodes. Everything about it worked for our group of 3. The beds were comfortable. The living room space was great for lounging. The A/C was cold. We were able to do our laundry and make coffee. We could have cooked complete meals, but with all the great restaurants nearby we didn't want to. I would definitely rent this again.

Modern Decor Villa Rhodes Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect. First time me and my girlfriend had been to Rhodes. Yiannis arranged taxi pick up from the airport where upon the driver insisted on carrying our luggage both at the airport and at the villa. Yiannis met us on arrival to explain everything to us, and also on our last day to make sure all was ok. In fact we were supposed to be out by 11.00 on the last day but as the next guests were not arriving to the next day he kindly allowed us to stay for as long as we wished. As our flight was 21.10 so we stayed all day! All photos are very accurate, with everything you will need including a bottle of Cava, cheese, ham, milk, bottled water in the fridge. There is also tap filtered water and at least half a dozen large bottles of water on top of the cupboard. My girlfriend had not really experienced self catering in a villa before, and she also gave it 11/10!! As previous reviews have said the villa is within 5 mins walking into the centre of the old town, but far enough away to be quiet at night. Explore the many variations of the narrow cobbled streets all over the old town but watch out for those scooter and motorcycles. All in all Yiannis was the perfect host, hosting a perfect villa and we certainly highly recommend this villa for your stay. We will be returning. One final note I left an anorak type coat there and Yiannis immediately said he would send it out to me registered post and no cost, even though I offered. Now that's what I call perfect service. Thank you Yiannis.
