What more could we ask for, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and that was just the Villa Petalutha, we were absolutely delighted. It far exceeded expectations for comfort, facilities and location, the views, tranquillity and outdoor area were beyond anything we hoped, we wanted for nothing. The Island of Rhodes is fabulous, although some of us have been to Rhodes before we all agreed that this was the BEST villa we had stayed in. If we return to Rhodes we will be back. A big THANK YOU to Mark and Katrina and their local support staff who were excellent for helping to make our holiday a huge success. The Junior Senior Citizens from Cornwall – June/July 2012

“The Villa was fantastic and everyone thought it was the nicest we have stayed in while in Greece. It was in a great location and so well thought out it made our holiday so much better. It was ideal to go into Lindos, Pefkos, Lardos and Rhodes Town as well as the local resorts of Kolympia and Afandou. The restaurants you recommended were excellent. It was a wonderful holiday and all six of us enjoyed every aspect.” Michael, UK - July 2012
“We thought that the villa was superb. The cleanliness, quality of furniture and amenities were first class. The directions were excellent. Great location for lots to do like Tsampika, Rhodes Town, Faliraki, 7 Springs. Loved the info brochures you left. Loved the home cinema. We watched DVDs 3 nights and enjoyed your selec tion. Overall it was first rate and great value for money.” Graham, UK - September 2012
This was the first villa holiday that Jo and I have booked. I am delighted to say that our expectations were exceeded. The villa was extremely comfortable and the outdoor areas were perfect for the family. I would happily have stayed for another fortnight! Richard & Jo - July 2010
My partner and I stayed here from 14th October for a week and absolutely loved it. The villa, as previous guests have commented, is stunning. There are 3 lovely bedrooms each with their own balcony and are all decorated in a beautiful modern contemporary style. In fact this is true of the villa throughout. The lounge area has all the mod cons (ipod dock, DVD, Flat screen TV, even a Playstation 2 for the kids) and a kitchen that wed want to have ourselves at home! There are 3 bathrooms all with very good showers etc unlike some places when you go abroad. Credit to the owners here as a lot of thought has clearly gone into providing visitors with everything they might need for an enjoyable and hassle free stay, including a good dvd collection, books, even a pre-pay mobile phone should you need it. Theyve even included some local take away menus etc should you wish to fully relax and not leave the villa all day, which we gratefully took advantage of on particularly lazy days! Outside the villa is a lovely pool and beautiful seating area, nicely shaded from the hot Greek sun. We felt the thought that has clearly been put into this property inside continues outside as well with a lovely circular lawn surrounded by a beautiful array of plants and shrubs. The views from the garden are fantastic and we loved the feeling of being up on the hilltop with our own privacy and the peace and quiet but still only a short distance from the local towns with their many bars and restaurants. We would absolutely recommend this villa and Rhodes itself. The villa is very well positioned so youre only a short drive to Rhodes Town, Lindos and the airport and there are a couple of lovely towns very nearby too serving great cuisine. The owners were very friendly to deal with and we cant wait to go back next year! Mark & Jo Oct 2009
Have just come back from Villa Petalutha (jul 23ᆱ). "What a fantastic villa" Have no doubts when booking. We had a fantastic time with our two grown up children and thier partners (pictures prove that they were just big kids). The welcome pack you receive is full of goodies not just the basics that you normally receive. We all had a truly relaxing family holiday and were sorry to leave, a week was just not long enough.

I wanted to take the chance to thank you for the wonderful time we had. Your Villa is truly lovely, comfortable, well located and well equipped. The view is simply breath-taking. We really enjoyed our stay.I’m glad we had the opportunity to talk – as all your recommendations were valuable: we ate good, rested well, enjoyed the wonderful sandy beaches – couldn’t ask for more. Sigal - April 2009
I cannot recommend this villa and location highly enough. The villa is very comfortable and the pool is fantastic. The local beaches are wonderful too. Would recommend a meal at Zorbas in Kremasti on the way home by the airport. Roger, Don, George & Fi - September 2008
We had a wonderful relaxing holiday and absolutely loved the actual villa. It was beautifully furnished with fantastic attention to detail and was simply perfect for us. The views were stunning and we adored the private pool – just bliss!Mike & Karen - August 2008
Becky and I wanted to thank you again for the use of your lovely villa, we had a great time.As your aware I had planned on asking Becky to marry me.... and happily she agreed!I'd also like to mention , the hire car company you set us up were first rate. The process when we arrived was very quick and informal and departure dro p off a the airport couldn't be easier.Thanks again.Iwan & Becky - July 2008


About the owner
Your hosts are Katrina and Mark Borthwick and we are both Project Managers in the UK. Katrina in I.T. and Mark in Property Development and Construction. Away from our professional lives we love to travel and pride ourselves of never visiting the same place twice as there are so many places on our planet to see. However that all changed in 2007! Our October 2007 holiday to Rhodes exceeded our expectations. The weather was perfect, we found the island enchanting, the locals warm and friendly and the food excellent. This together with so many sights and activities to keep us busy, we wondered why we had never visited Rhodes before! Everything happened so fast, but we threw caution to the wind and bought a holiday home. Who knew we could be so elated with owning a concrete shell!! Contracts exchanged in January 2008 and we picked up the keys to our new, complete villa in June 2008. We owe thanks to Angela and George for building us such a beautiful and high quality villa. We couldn’t have asked for a better group of neighbours either, all of whom, together with Angela and George have become good friends. We also secured the services of local Property Managing Agent, Kim and her team to ensure the Villa was cleaned and maintained to a high standard for our guests. It is so important for us to know we have somebody local we trust to look after our guests should they need it. With everything ready for our first guests in July 2008, all we needed was a name. Villa Petalutha, taken from the Greek word for Butterfly (Petaluda), came to mind during a visit to the Butterfly Valley, as it reminded us of the cocoons on the villa when we inspected it and we weren’t disappointed by the flurry of butterflies in June. Like the butterfly, Villa Petalutha metamorphosed from that concrete shell on a building site to a stunning Villa in a beautiful area. We are very proud of our achievements to date and are still pinching ourselves that this dream is a reality. We have had great feedback from our guests, however as naturally perfectionists, we don’t rest on past success so try to make improvements and upgrades every year to ensure expectations are exceeded. Guest feedback is very important to us, not only to know what we are doing right, but more importantly what else we can do to make it even better. 2010 introduced guest robes and outdoor sofa’s while 2011 provides two new stone walls to improve privacy in the garden and pool as well as a new larger BBQ and water feature. We keep our website up to date with changes and additions, so please keep looking back. Happy Holidays!
