Villa for six with large pool, superb sea views, cooling breezes, peaceful lawned gardens, located close to beach and amenities.
Villa Kipseli is a spacious well-equipped family home and is available to rent for part of the year. Built about fifteen years ago, it sits on the airy ridge above Pefkos village, overlooking the bay and set in peaceful lawned gardens. The pool is larger than usual for this size of villa; and is positioned away from neighbouring properties to give a bit of privacy. It is a short walk down from the villa to the local supermarket, bakery and beaches. The lively resort of Lindos is just a couple of miles away.
Set in a generous lawned garden with a 12x5 metre pool, the villa has three levels. On the ground floor are the lounge, kitchen/dining room, master bedroom and larger bathroom. Patio doors open onto the front terrace and sitting areas. The top floor is comprised of two double bedrooms each with a terrace/roof garden and there is a second bathroom. Downstairs is a large laundry room. Throughout there are AC systems, whilst powerful central heating makes Kipseli a comfortable year-round destination. Smoke detectors on all levels. Decent book collection, nice art work on the walls.
The front door and large shuttered patio doors open onto the front terrace and our main shaded sitting place, looking out across the bay. Centre piece of the largely open plan ground floor is the generously equipped family kitchen. The dining table is set up for six, but seats 10 at a push. Equipment includes: large fridge/freezer, hob, oven, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, fire blanket and extinguisher.
An archway leads to the spacious lounge with two sofas and a modern 55 inch TV with VCR and Wii systems. Teamed up with the internet, one can stream any channel. There is also a sound system and a range of games.
The other side of the kitchen leads through into the master bedroom suite, with conventional double bed. The bedroom patio windows open onto the front terrace. Optional mosquito net. A short corridor leads back to the master bathroom with two sinks, bath/shower and WC, designed as a wet room.
Two good sized bedrooms with shuttered patio doors, each opening onto their own private roof garden terrace. The beds on this floor are traditional Lindian ‘banca’ style: a thick comfy mattress on top of a wooden platform base used also for storage. Optional mosquito nets are provided for those who like them. The second bathroom is also a wet room with sink, WC and shower.
There is a generous sized laundry room containing washing machine, drying rack and ironing facilities downstairs in the rear basement. A small basement owner’s apartment will remain unoccupied during your stay.
Exclusive use of main house, garden and pool. The small basement owner’s apartment will be locked and unoccupied.
Interaction with Guests
We do a basic welcome pack: bread, butter, wine, milk, orange juice etc.
You will however find the villa well stocked - a home and not a stripped down rental place!
You can checkin 24 hours. Our local agent will call next morning to ensure all is well, fully orient you to the house and give you local tips and advice.
Both agent and owner are always at the end of a phone.
Pool and garden maintenance people call every few days.
Typically for Pefkos (Pefkoi meaning pine trees in greek) the setting is mountainous with olive groves and pine trees. Pefkos was known for its cooling breezes and better beaches, so thirty years ago this was where wealthy Rhodians built their second homes. Pefkos is now a thriving family resort with services for all tastes and budgets, but also a few outstandingly good eating places. It is extremely well organised: great taxi system, frequent buses, vigilant cleanliness, daily bin collection, humane care for the local cat population – all things which really matter to British tourists. Glamorous, elegant (hotter and costlier) Lindos is only a couple of miles away.
Bus and taxi services are good. A taxi from Pefkos centre or Lindos square will zoom you back to the villa in five minutes. Taxis won't drive up our track so instead ask to be dropped off at Hotel Ziakis, just down the hill. Hire cars can be parked inside our gates or beside the property in a vacant lot.
There is plenty to see and do on Rhodes at all times of year, or you may just wish to relax on the beach or by the pool.
Other Things to Note
Keybox for 24 hour checkin is just by the front door. Please read the owner's welcome leaflet for advice on making the best of the place. Tap water is not recommended to drink. Greek loos have their own habits and needs, see the owner's welcome leaflet.
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for infants (Under 2 years)
- shut the gates or else goats will wreck the garden
- keep glasses away from the pool, as draining it is very costly
- read the detailed instructions in the house on greek shutters, plumbing, water supply etc.
It's a quiet neighbourhood, so not suitable as a party house. Please consider our neighbours.
Any problems call the owners or our local agent.
