“Greek Sunshine, Hospitality and Tranquility”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Melinda Holiday House is the perfect getaway if you're looking for some chill out time.
There were 6 of us staying in this lovely spacious house which is very well appointed and equipped. The owners, Evi and Stratos were wonderful caring and attentive hosts looking after our every need.

We also virtually had the beach to ourselves which is totally amazing in August! N.B.You need beach shoes for the pebble beach but otherwise a delight for swimming.

Just a 10 minute walk along the beach you will find a lovely Taverna - for an unpretentious and authentic Greek experience and the food is excellent.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday house and hope to return again before too long.

“Beautiful place and great hosts”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Melinda House is a charming holiday villa and is ideal for families or couples. The villa (located about 1 hour 20 minutes drive from Mytiline Airport) is very well appointed and beautifully situated with direct access to a beach at the bottom of the garden. Although the beach is not sandy the water is crystal clear and safe for children. Efi and Stratios are perfect hosts, welcoming and informative (Stratios set up a visit by boat for us to the Panagia Kryfti Chapel with its hot spring) and Efi's home-made jam was delicious. There are three local tavernas with two being reached by a short stroll up the beach. The inhabitants of Melinta village are open, friendly and hospitable. I honestly cannot fault our stay at this lovely place and would recommend it without reservation. NOTE: we were in Lesvos at the height of the refugee crisis. I know this is a source of worry for many people, but those we encountered were never intimidating in any way. There are refugee camps at Mytiline and Moria and, whilst we were there, a constant stream of people making their way across the island. They do not inspire fear when you see them - only sympathy.

“Perfect summer vacation.”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The house is located on a beautiful almost private beach. About 700 meters from the house there are three taverns in a small village, so you can walk on the beach to the taverns and have delicious Greek food. The house has a very nice balcony, and we very much enjoyed having breakfast on this balcony overlooking the sea. We bought fresh bread at an adjacent old village, and enjoyed the vegetables that grow in the garden. The house is located within a few minute drive from Plomary in which we bought our groceries. The house is very well equipped and was very convenient for the 5 of us – parents with 3 teenagers. The owners were very nice and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this house.

“Paradijselijke omgeving, meer dan de moeite waard”

The residence is located in a beautiful bay, a few meters from the beach. The beach, a pebble beach is secluded and almost private. The spacious garden is private and very quiet, with only cicadas, the sea and the wind, very soothing. The house is equipped with every comfort, including a good wifi connection. On a short walking distance (5 minutes via beach or road) you find three local fish restaurants with their own specialties and fine hospitable owners. A larger town is only 6 km by road, where everything is available. In a clay-tensioners mountain village (Paleohori) one can find the best bread. We have enjoyed a wonderful holiday on Lesvos, definitely worth repeating it. An absolute must. Do not hesitate to go to Greece, people will receive you with open arms. The people there are super friendly and very welcoming. Paying by card is certainly not a problem. We will come back for sure. And be sure to visit and sample the local specialty in Plomari: the Ouzo distillery Barbayanni ...

“Melinda Holiday House is the best”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This lovely house is not only a holiday residence it feels like a home. The owner of the house called Efi lives at the same village and is totally a nice person. She really cares for her hosts, whenever they need something. She also knows a lot about the Island and gives very good Insider-Tipps. The house is perfect and there is nothing missing. It was very relaxing there. I guess it is perfect for people who really want to have a peaceful time with very very good food and beautiful sunny weather. There are three taverns next to the house. You can reach them if you walk 3 min on the beach. The food is amazing there. I love this place! Thank you Efi and all the very nice people of melinda!

“perfect House, perfect beach and very nice people”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The host were very friendly. Efi always looked out that we have a nice stay and also helped us at any question we had.
The house was perfectly equipped and at a very nice quiet beach.
We were a group of 7 people and everybody loved it there.
The beach next to the house was beautiful and we were almost the only people on the beach.
You have to walk about 5 minutes on the beach to reach the first of three taverns were we also made friends.
All in all the perfect place to stay in Lesbos

“Perfect”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Perfect couples seeking for a romantic experience, perfect for families with children, perfect for people tired of other people. You have your own sea and a beach with almost no people around (in 16 days we saw like a few persons), and a way to your swim is literally 30 seconds. 8-10 minutes along the beach and you find 3 tavernas where they cook just like at home and you always have fresh fish. Dinner for two with great house wine is 25 euros. For groceries and a bit more sophisticated, although still cosy, tavernas you drive to Plomari, which is 10 mins away.

House itself has everything you need for a holiday, and even more.

If you dont want to see many people every day, and can make groceries in advance for 2-3 days - I would recommend taking a taxi instead of renting a car for a whole stay. It will be much cheaper - taxi ride is 9-10 euros one way, and a rental car (automatic) was 45 per day. From this part of Lesvos you dont really want to go anywhere for sightseeing, as it will take you at least 2 hours to get to any of the sites. And to my opinion they all cannot compete with what you get just in front of your house.

Great thing about this place is that 3 t-shirts is all you need for a change - we didnt use the majority of clothes we had with us at all. People, tavernas, surroundings - everything is very nice and simple, and if you try to dress fancy you will feel uncomfortable yourself.

And, of course, the hosts - Evgenia and her family. Long and loud applause! Greek hospitality and great people you will be happy to meet.
