Stonebuilt villa w. chloor free swimming pool in picturesque vlge

Overview

Luscious garden that is located at a hidden place at the edge of an old authentic village close by Rhodes. It has an outside living area, with outside kitchen, lounge, hanging bed, big dining table, and luscious, green and colorful garden. The house has 2 guest houses, 1 with double bed and an adjacent bathroom next to it reachable from outside, and one with double bed, kitchenette and bathroom. There are 2 verandas: one upstairs that is used as an outdoor house/living, with kitchenette outside, a hanging double bed, a lounging area and a big dining area. and one down at the pool area that is mainly for lounging and sunbathing. The house is an old family property and one has to take into consideration that nothing is like it is in western and northern Europe: the walls are not straight but very thick against the heat and the floors are very unstraight, but this is at the same time the most charming thing about Greece and what everyone wants in his escape from the western and straight society (at least i did): to unstraighten out, and to unwind and relax, and that's just what this beautiful colorful artistic villa is all about: living the Greek life but in a very stylish way.

the house has 6 double beds in different rooms, 1 double bed in the living room, high on a raised wooden platform, reachable with a stairs, and with curtains in the front (there is a door in front of it, so a child of 4-5 years could sleep here as well). and 3 single beds: 2 are high sleepers in the kids rooms, and should be for children over 4-5 years. and 2 is on a high raised platform each, in the living room with its own stairs and curtains in front. Those bed are also for kids at least 5-6 years.

there are 4 bathrooms.

Summary:

149 year old, nostalgic, Artistic Villa with SWIMMING POOL . Outside kitchen, lounge, and hanging bed. 10 mins from Beach. In many magazines.

Stayed Monday 15 September 2014 with Couple
Our party was two couples in our mid mid-fifties. We have all traveled extensively and have spent time working overseas. Weve rented many houses in quite a few countries and this property stands out as being quite special. One of the best houses weve rented in our travels. Our hosts were lovely folks to deal with and wed not hesitate to recommend this property. The one short coming was that when using the outdoor BBQ one of the neighbors would yell about the smoke it produced. We were assured that many BBQed in the neighborhood and that it was the neighbor, and not our BBQ, which was out of line ! Reality is that there are folks like that everywhere in the world and I would not let that put you off from renting this truly beautiful property. I just thought it was worth mentioning so you would not be surprised the first time you lit the gorgeous outdoor stone BBQ.

Our stay in Dream House was wonderfulalthough too short!! Were already dreaming of our next visit to Greece. Gudrun and Yiorgos were extremely nice and helpful throughout our stay. Their wonderful hospitality was extremely appreciated as we were making our first holiday with our infant son. They made sure we had everything we needed for him throughout our stay. My only regret about the villa was that the pool was unheated, making the water much too cold to enjoy given the what I understand was below average temperatures we encountered in early October. Again, a fantastic place to stay in a wonderful Rhodian village, just an easy drive to Rhodes Town.

We have just come back from the most wonderful 10 days at The Dreamhouse, which is entirely deserving of the name! The whole place, which is beautifully decorated and full of character, has a super atmosphere - even to the extent of having a bush adjoining the main patio which miraculously emits a wonderful scent at dusk. The walled garden is beautiful and the non-chloric pool ideal for a lazy day. The ancient city of Rhodes is a 15-20 minute drive, whilst there are numerous sandy beaches in the other direction. The village centre location was ideal for nipping out to the local restaurants, bars and small general goods store. We cannot recommend this villa too highly!

This is a authentic,stunning villa in a non touristic part of Rhodes yet very close to all the action. The home is gorgeous,lots of private spaces,a fabulous pool and very welcoming landlords.They also organised the car for us and gave us some great tips for our holiday. we where only with 4 adults and 1 toddler but the home is large with some additional nanny flats attached. The garden is just luscious with lots of shady places,plants,lounge corners and cooking facilities.The home is a truly original piece with lots of character and history,nothing like your everyday holiday villas.We where sad to leave this child friendly stunner and wholeheartedly recommend this home to those that value authenticity and luxury..

The house and the garden are really beautiful, the whole property is well kept and the owners help us in any situation. It is a perfect place to relax. In walking distance you will find 3 tavernas, a souflaki place and a super market. Still a car is highly recommended. By car it takse 20 min. to the airport, 20 min. to the old town of Rhodes, 10 min. to the next beach and less than 1 hour to Lindos. You can explore the whole island starting from here.

We had a wonderful 10 days at this property in Rhodes. It is a beautiful traditional Greek house set in a lage private garden. Gudrun and Giorgos were extremely welcoming,friendly and helpful. The house has all amenities needed. It is in Koskinou so you can step out into the old town and there a couple of excellent Greek tavernas to choose from. A supermarket is very close walking distance. Would be happy to recommend this place to anyone and would like to thank Gudrun and Giorgos for their great hospitality. Mary, Graeme, Heather and Sean

A really comfortable villa, full of charm and character. We had up to eight people staying at once and everyone was accommodated well - though if you are going to exceed this number double-check the floorplan as some rooms lead off others. The separate "outhouse" is a cool and spacious set of rooms that include a double bedroom and a small bathroom. The garden is a dream: large, with pomegranate and orange trees, plenty of shrubs and herbs, a couple of hammocks and a lovely open pergola with comfortable seats for daytime shade and early-evening drinks. The pool is bigger than we had envisaged and nicely deep, and it is very pleasant not to have that chlorine smell on your skin. The house itself has a large terrace overlooking the garden, with a dining table and an area you can relax in. We spent many evenings here. There is also a suspended day bed, which turned out to be very good too for night times sleeping in the moonlight. Koskinou village is charming - go out the back door of the property and you are immediately in a maze of whitewashed cobbled streets - and it is quiet. The nearest beaches - at Kalithea - are great: relatively quiet, quite varied and with crystal clear blue seas. Very much recommended.

We have spent fantastic week in the Dream house. The house and garden is really special place, having all comfort for the holiday and unbelievable genius loci. Behind the back door, you will find the atmosphere of the old village of Koskinou, will small greek restaurants, old architecture. Few minutes of drive you can find nice small beaches (e.g. Oasis beach) with all privacy, stylisch bar and good food. All in all, it is a perfect contrast with mainstream holiday in the resort for people who want to enjoy it. Strongly recommended.

Really lovely, traditional property and a warm welcome from Gudrun. Would recommend to anyone and consider returning in future.

The property was as described. 2 very small problems were dealt with immediatately. The property lacked an information booklet but details were emailed to me as they are in the process of being written. The owner very kindly did a shop for us as we were arriving late on Saturday night. We were met by theowner a given a very quick tour of the house and how things worked. Having said this the house was great.

This place is like paradise, beautiful in every detail, inside and outside. The house is surrounded by lush trees and flowers and there are several beautiful lounging areas. The swimming pool is stunning and the water is very refreshing and non-chloric, which is really nice. All the furniture is lovely, lots of artistic detail and splendid colours. The kitchen is great, very practical and clean with a huge fridge (great for the massive watermelons) and everything else (dishwasher, oven etc). Most rooms have A/C so sleeping was no problem despite the heat outside. The eating area outside is completely in the shade and we had the most pleasant long breakfasts, lunches and dinners there. The house is right in the middle of the village, walking distance to the supermarket and the lovely cafe next doors where the kids got home made ice cream. Gudrun and Giorgos, the owners, are lovely people, very helpful. We have had an amazing time in the dream house and would strongly recommend it.

About the owner
I am Yiorgos Stavridis, born and raised in Rhodes. I am a real estate agent, but i have also always been working with building houses. I have renovated a lot of ruins and old houses, and have built many new houses as well, but always in the old Greek fashion the way is so dear to me. The Dream house is a project that i have been busy with for a long time now, each year upgrading and improving every aspect of it. It is a property that dates from the year 1866, when my ancestors built it. It has been in my family ever since, and recently been passed on to me, after which i made it into the dream property it is now.
