A detached house set within an olive grove. Both bedrooms have a private balcony. The large sun terrace and private garden, complete with stone built barbeque, provides the ideal setting for outdoor living and relaxation. Fully air-conditioned. Perfect choice for families, couples or just friends! We are in a brilliant location for ramblers, artists and anyone looking to 'get away from it all', but can be in the centre of a fantastic friendly village within a few minutes where you will find tavernas, restaurants and supermarkets. A 15 minute drive will take you to Lindos Village.

About Garry &; Maxine Stanley
Garry and Maxine from Newcastle upon Tyne.
Garry &; Maxine Stanley purchased this House in 2010
Why Garry &; Maxine Stanley chose Charaki
After holidaying in Lindos for over 17 years we decided to look for our "own place" in wonderful Rhodes. We bought Olive Grove House in 2010 potentially so that we could "retire" in a few years. Therefore we have decorated it, not as a "holiday let" but as somewhere we would feel "at home" in. 2010 was our first year of letting and we asked for comments from those who stayed so that we could get things right for renting and from the feedback we think we have achieved this!
What makes this House unique
The people are the major benefit - fabulously friendly and helpful. We are located in the most peaceful of areas but within easy walking distance of Haraki Bay. Watch for the mouflons meandering around the house - brilliant! (but keep gates closed otherwise they will eat everything in sight!) Look for shooting stars at night - amazing! Most of all - enjoy your time there - we do!

A fantastic Greek get away!!
We read the reviews before booking our stay at Olive Grove House, they seemed too good to be true!!! I was wrong..!! The villa was everything we could have wished for,private, quiet and relaxing. The villa is a short distance from Haraki village,which very picturesque and un spoilt. The beach at the village is mainly pebbles, however we found Agathi beach which is about 500m from the villa, breath taking, with a crystal clear sea and sandy beach, with an awesome back drop of mountains and a castle, we spent most of our time there with our 3 children. Lindos is a short drive away, which is definately worth a visit. we will definately book our holiday again at Olive Grove House.The perfect greek experioence.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Great review. We also adore Agathi and spend a LOT of time there. Really hope to hear from you and yours again.
Perfect in all aspects. Loved this property and outside area with BBQ and sunbeds. Made full use of the amazing(!) pool and adored Haraki and the people there. Need not have bothered bringing hairdryer - brand new one already there. Can bring less clothes next time - will use the washing machine! Such a relaxing enjoyable holiday.
Will be back x
Thank you for a fantastic review. You have made my day!
So very pleased you enjoyed Haraki.
Hope to see you soon.
Lovely holiday house
Absolutely love coming to stay at Olive Grove House. I have been here with my family on 3 occasions now and would definitely go back again. Lovely location and the house is perfect. It is very well equipped with everything you could need. The children love the inflatable pool and the safe, secure garden for them to play. We hire a car when we stay which makes exploring Rhodes even better. Garry and Maxine were brilliant at communicating with us and very helpful. Best places we visited were Agathi Beach and Epta Springs, although the kids did enjoy the shopping trip to Jumbo! My children loved sipping their non alcoholic cocktails at Bottoms up and Jacobs. Would recommend this place to stay to anyone. Cant wait for our next holiday there.
What a fantastic review - thank you so much!!
You & yours are welcome back any time.
We really appreciate the time you have taken to write this & hope to see you soon.
Again, THANK YOU
Fabulous - a true home from home
Superb holiday base with everything you could need. Adored the outside space and really appreciated the amazing pool(!). We NEVER go on holiday and STAY IN - but we did here - it is so easy to relax. BBQ aflame, iced drinks as and when needed and the occasional slightly cool breeze was a god send.
Haraki is a fantastic place to meet and make friends, the locals are extremely friendly and genuine people. Beaches are SO clean. Every taverna serves exquisite food - what more could one ask for?!
Go - enjoy - we did x
Thank you Me S what a FANTASTIC review. We greatly appreciate the time you took to write it and would welcome you back in the future.
Again, thank you!
A lovely house with perfect location
We chose Haraki because I knew the area from working there 30 years ago. Haraki is a perfect base for lovely beaches and for exploring around Rhodes especially with the main highway just up the road.
I was delighted to see that although there was more development in Haraki, it retained its sleepy ex-fishing village feel, keeping a lot of the charm but with more choice of tavernas and a few bars. Sunsets over the bay with the lights slowly illuminating under Feraklos Castle were wonderful.
Olive Grove House was perfect - light and airy, with shade or sun at any time of the day. There was plenty of space in the house, and wonderful outside seating including a newly-built barbecue which we used on alternate evenings. Olive Grove House is decorated to an excellent standard with all you need for a holiday, including a washing machine, iron, hairdryer etc.
With a private garden and driveway, there was never the worry of finding a parking space, or needing to walk a long way to the house with heavy shopping.
I would recommend Haraki for an area in which to stay, and particularly recommend Olive Grove House.
Thank you for a fabulous review by a genuine Greek lover - greatly appreciated.

Großzügiges Platzangebot , ideal für Kinder
Die Beschreibung des Hauses passt zu 100%. Für uns (Familie mit 2 Kindern 5+2 Jahre) war es perfekt. Herd, Mikrowelle, Waschmaschine, Bügelbrett, Hochstuhl, Kinderreisebett, Treppengitter und großzügiger Kühlschrank... alles vor Ort. Für uns besonders wichtig, Fliegengitter und Rollladen an ALLEN Fenstern. Das Sofa im Wohnzimmer könnte eventuell mal ausgetauscht werden, dafür gibt es einen Stern Abzug... aber wer sitzt schon drinnen, bei einer so herrlichen Terrasse ?! Wir werden definitiv wieder buchen.
Thank you Florian for a fantastic review - we really appreciate your comments and sincerely hope to welcome you back.
The house is in a peaceful position just over a kilometre from the centre of the village set back from the road. A 2 minutes drive or 10 minute easy flat walk. There are two beautiful beaches, one providing sun-beds - pebbles at one end and sand at the other. Agathi Beach is a 3 minute drive and has a fantastic safe sandy beach and shallow waters with three tavernas.
Nearest airport is Rhodes Diagoras and is a 40 minute drive. Car hire is recommended but not essential as there is a bus service which runs into Rhodes Town/Falariki and Lindos/Pefkos. We highly recommend M&S car hire for your stay and will give you all details and prices on request.
We are a 15 minute drive from Lindos and a 3 minute drive to Agathi Beach. Haraki Bay is within walking distance.
Our house is located a very short distance from Haraki village, a flat walk, no hills to climb! Please note there are no cash machines in Haraki.
