The Cliff house is owned by our dear friend Makis and his wife Maria who have lived there with their family for about 8 years. The children are big now and Makis and Maria decided to move to a smaller house as the children are studying elsewhere and rent out this lovely traditional village house with a fantastic valley view.
The rental house consists out of 2 houses that the owners made into one. That is why the house is very spacious and has different levels. The house is made out of stone and has thick walls, making it cool in the summer and warm in the winter with 2 fire places. That’s why this house is also very suitable as a winter escape for winter rent. The house has place for a big family and also various couples have spent some great summer holidays in the house which can almost be called a villa according to the size. Outside one can easily take the food from the kitchen and grill on the built in bbq in the courtyard, while having long conversations on the big dining table.
The sala (living room) has the beautiful famous chochlakia: a floor made of white and black (sometimes a few red) pebbles that are selected from the beach, and are laid into a beautiful mosaic one by one, making it one of the most expensive floors that one can nowadays have. This is a true newly and heavenly experience as these cool pointy stones tickle you under the feet and acts as acupuncture under the foot soles. The couches are the typical Greek wooden couches that are many times displayed on postcards. The kitchen is next to the sala and has a dining area as well. The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything that one has normally in a living house.
The bathroom is a big one, with a nice bath with a shower in it, as is usual for a Greek house. From the hallway we get into the bedroom downstairs which has a high sleeper on a wooden platform high above reachable through a steady stairs. On the ground it has a single bed which altogether makes this bedroom into a triple bedroom. Going up the stairs in the hall, one reaches another hall that serves as an office which can easily sit 3 people for working on the laptop. Another small stairs brings us to the second bedroom with a double bed and air conditioning inside. Next to this bedroom is firstly a walk in closet and next to this the master bedroom, which is a very large bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a fire place.
There is also a balcony at the master bedroom which overlooks the whole valley with fantastic views. Going to the office space again, there is a door that leads to the outside spaces with seating and pillows and again with a spectacular view. One stairs up (outside) one comes on the roof terraces with sun loungers. Altogether all the ingredients to make your holiday a memorable one, and to not forget this holiday home very lightly.
The cliff house is located on a quiet spot in the old village of Koskinou. More exactly: at the edge of the old village. It overlooks the whole valley of Koskinou and beyond from all the terraces, and the house. Koskinou is a 10-15 minutes drive away from Rhodes Old Town. The holiday home does not have any direct neighbors, but has some partly neighboring houses. The feeling of location that one gets while staying in this house is a solitary one with wide views.
The house is in the elder part of Koskinou. Its very beautiful enough space even for a few people. all is arranged with love. The house is clean and the owner very friendly and tries to help you in your belongings.
