“Villa Athena and the Island of Rhodes was the perfect place for a large party of people to enjoy!”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The Villa was very comfortable and well equipped. The interior design is very pleasing and the view fabulous - and all that before you get into the infinity pool! It was a great place to hang out as well as a fabulous venue for a birthday. Everything worked perfectly and the villa is well placed to enjoy the locality with its many attractions.in Lindos, Pefkos and beyond. The beaches are many and varied and there are some really lovely restaurants serving GOOD Greek food. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it absolutely!

“Perfect 3 Family comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Villa Athena is very well situated (a five minute drive from Lindos) with lots of things to do nearby for all age groups. Lindos, the Acropolis, beaches, we hired a yacht for the day from NextPortAway, used water sports facilities at the Lindian Village hotel, Waterpark Wibit at Tsambika beach etc.

Each floor of the airy villa has two bedrooms and a bathroom; so three families can have their own little area which was a godsend with lots of little children using the bathroom and trying! to siesta in the afternoons.

The kitchen is very well equipped for 12 people. We loved the ice machine!

The on-site manager was very helpful and responded quickly to any queries.

“Bit of a let down”
Reviewed August 20, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed here with the family last year and after another family holiday this year somewhere else it got us reminiscing about the villa. Good points are the pool is lovely and the view is beautiful too. Inside the villa is nice but much nicer in pictures advertised and looking a bit worn in places. For example outdoor speakers don't work the American fridge didn't work with crushed ice. Usually this wouldn't be a big issue but considering the price and these things being mentioned as included you would expect everything to be perfect. They were mentioned to the lady who came around to check on us but her attitude quite frankly was quite blasé. We also asked about getting someone in to cook for us also as advertised at the time and were told 'he doesn't do it anymore' when we got there. But disappointing as we wanted to plan some hassle free nights in without cooking one of the reasons we booked. We had young kids with us and didn't find it kid friendly I.e no shallow end in the pool lots of things for them to be careful of in the villa. The other reviewer is right there is a slight ant problem and we were very meticulous about cleaning up after ourselves. The local town is very quaint and pretty and a short car ride away as is the beach. i think if some of the small issues were addressed it could be a really nice place to stay

We had the villa completely refurbished last winter after this reviewer stayed as it was 8 years old. It was repainted inside and out plus we replaced the fridge freezer and installed a new TV and multi media system as suggested. We believe that it now adds up to her 'really nice place to stay" final comment

“Villa Ok but has Ant problem”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

Nice Villa. Impressive views but you will need a car for everything. Beach access through local hotel and you will need to buy drinks.
There was an ant problem. We kept the kitchen scrupulously clean but were still inundated with ants. One night the air conditioning failed and my wife and I evacuated to a spare, twin bedroom. In the morning my wife woke up to find herself covered in ants. Officious owner. In response to my email query concerning gaining access to the property (which, yes was in the confused information pack... hidden under an extensive list of rules) began 'With the greatest of respect.' a statement that has come to mean quite the opposite of what is said.

We have 14 5 star reviews and I hope that readers will look at them also. I didnt know anything about any of the issues described and can only say that the villa is 400m from the nearest beach as described in the literature and that it is a public beach. The prettiest one is 1 km away which I am too lazy to walk in the heat. We always describe villa access in our standard 12 line covering email sent 10 weeks before departure. Our only rule is that we remind guests that it is very much a family home and we ask that they treat it with the same respect as they would their own. We do provide recommendations on the best of the great restaurants and how to use the appliances and I would agree that the Greek satellite TV is pretty confusing.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My parents booked this villa as we were a group of 8, family of 3 generations, 5 from Canada. The directions were great and found it quite easily despite arriving late at night in the dark. We were thrilled to discover, as promised, a welcome package including wine, beer, bread, milk and cheese, some crackers which was very much appreciated.

The location is great, in my opinion the nicest part of the island and I never tired of the views, .Lindos town is a 20 minute walk, a beautiful place with lots of bars etc. We also went into Pefkos and can highly recommend some restaurants there. (if you rent this villa its all in the guestbook!)

The villa was clean, well equipped and Alex was very helpful. The last day we had to vacatate by 11:00 and were able to rent a couple of rooms at the hotel down the road which was very useful as out flight wasnt until late that night.

I would thoroughly recommend this villa both for location and amenities. We had a wonderful time!
