superb stonebuilt country cottage in big oliveyard


Wonderfully designed cosy stonebuilt house set in a big olive yard. In the middle of Rhodes, on a quiet location, about 11 km from Rhodes town. The house has a lovely garden, a vegetable garden. One can walk around for hours in the surroundings, relax on the veranda, or make a fantastic barbecue outside. If you are looking for a real relaxing holiday away from all the tourist hassle, then this is the right place for you.

Tsaire is more of an area just outside of Koskinou village. It belongs to the same municipality as Koskinou does. There are some houses clustered here and then, but mainly people are just on their own and happy by themselves. There is not a village or community idea. All the pieces of land here were big plots of land, usually owned by the Koskinou villagers to put their olive trees on, and to go for the weekend to relax in a small self made shed or house. One can take nice walks and go to the backlands of the Olive Yard House. There is a horse riding club close by and biking and hiking is a very wanted activitiy in this neighbourhood. Just around the corner of the house is a Trofo Casa supermarket, but a bit further on the big road Rhodou-Lindou (road going from Rhodes to Lindos) there are bigger supermarkets as the Lidl.carrefour. and the AB.

Close by the Olive Yard house is a bee museum (Museum of Apiculture and of Natural History of the Bee) and it is very interesting how the whole process of honey making is created.

Great house, nice owner, beautiful place!
Stayed Sunday 27 October 2013 with Family
Nikos house is a little paradise - really like in the pictures on the web site- located in a completely unexpected area ( which is definately also to be explored) . The house is full of charm, well equipped and the garden fantastic. Picking up organic salad and peppers fresh from the garden was a so handy and eating them a real pleasure! As we are over 40 we must admit our bed/ mattress could have been a bit better as we had a bit of sore back each morning... For our boys ( of course we not there at the very hot season) a little football ground would have been more than welcome ( maybe nikos can arrange one ?) but they did enjoy the swimming pool and the picking up of the eggs and feeding the hens a lot. We had a real nice stay and are ready for the Belgian winter now !

Well, words cant describe the Olive house. Ill try :-) Wonderful location, close to the airport, Rhodes town and Faliraki. Nikos, the owner, is very helpful and friendly. Upon arrival beers and soft drinks in the fridge, a salad made by the mother of Nikos, a very warm welcome, just like youre visiting friends or family. Everything you need in the house is there, great. Extra is the fact that in the garden you can pick all kinds of herbs to make a cocktail, give some extra flavour to your (bbq) meal or whatever. The owner takes great care of the property, cleans the pool regularly, there is a sound and lightning system on the terrace, its really wonderful and so relaxed. We stayed there with 4 persons and they were all astonished about everything regarding the house. We have been in paradise for two weeks. A big thanks to Nikos, his mother, his son and Gudrun for a perfect vacation.

We had been apprehensive about booking a villa over the internet but we should not have worried. The week we spent at the Olive Yard was one of total relaxation a step into another magical, enchanting world. The villa is very well equipped with both tasteful and practical furniture and appliances. There honestly were no niggles to spoil our stay. Nikos and his family were so welcoming and always on hand to help. When the power failed and we thought we had done something ! reassurance was soon at hand that this was a widespread problem in the district. Besides, emergency lights came on automatically so the children were not scared. We were obviously staying somewhere where the owners put a lot of thought into how to make their guests comfortable and at ease. We adored the villa, the grounds, the hens, the everything, and dearly wish we could return again on day.

Very nice house, well equipped. Because its on a large piece of land, it has a lot of privacy. Located near to Rhodes city which is very nice.

We had a wonderfull time in Rhodos at the Olive Yard House. We were most hartely welcomed by Niko and his mother and they provided us with all the information for a truly magnificent stay at the lovely cottage. For 2 weeks I had the feeling of owning a big private plot of land with a wonderfull house and private pool and really nobody around us. A great way to spend the holiday with just your family and really no one else. In the afternoons we would go out and pay visits to Rhodes and Lindos and drive around the beautiful island. The house is so cosy and at night it is lit by all kind off coloured lamps making a nice atmosphere. The bed is really nice in the master bedroom. I really didnt have any backproblems and felt strong during the whole trip. The kitchen is equipped with really everything you need and also the laptop computer was very handy. Lots of towels and the nice family even put some fresh stuff for us in the refrigirator. We also held a nice barbeque at the end of our holiday with all of the family making this trip unforgetable. Thank you for everything. Hope to come back.

It has been a great pleasure to stay in this extremely well equipped house and to take sunbaths in the huge olive-yard surrounding the house. We also enjoyed the warm welcome and the familiy atmosphere. We will come again! Britta and Stefan

This cottage was absolutely delightful in every way. You could have left home with a toothbrush and a change of clothing for a two week stay. Everything you could ever want in a holiday cottage was provided. We particularly liked the juicer and coffee maker used every day. A computer with internet connection was also a great hit with our 15 year old son. The location is perfect very handy for the beach, Rhodes town and the airport, yet secluded and peaceful. Arriving at the cottage for the first time was magical, outdoor lighting and the pergola covered pathway to the door created a lovely ambience. Inside, the cottage was cleverly renovated to provide perfect accommodation for the three of us. Nikos, the owner was particularly friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone.

The olive yard house was a really romantic and lovely house to stay in. all amenities were there, it was fully equipped. By far the nicest house we have ever stayed in on our holidays, and we have been to a lot, especially in Rhodes (9 times). The huge plot of land where this stonebuilt house was standing on was filled with old olive trees, which added to our feeling of being in Greece. The hanging bed outside was the highlight and the owner had even put a huge inflatable swimming pool for our coolance, thank you very much. Our children played outside for hours, hiding behind and climbing in the trees and we felt so utterly safe, so unlike in the U.K. We just left our doors open day and night. The best holiday weve ever had. Niko, The owner of the house made us feel very welcome and wanted, and we had a great b.b.q. together with his wonderful mother, Argyro. I will most definitely come back, and recommend this to all of my friends. regards Andy

When we first arrived at the country cottage we were slightly let down by the surroundings. The property is situated next to a small-scale industrial area and there was quite a distance to any services, stores or taverns. This wasnt highlighted on the website of course, and was something we were mentally prepared for. We had a car rented, so that was not a big deal for us at all, but perhaps we missed an opportunity for nice evening strolls near the house. Having entered the gates to the property itself we have to say we found it very nice. Lush garden atmosphere, well kept house with all the comforts from home (such as fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, satellite tv, airconditioning was installed during our stay, wlan, etc.). We of course especially valued the outside hanging bed but also the possibility to use fresh eggs, vegetables and spice from the property. Nikos, the house owner, was really nice and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We probably ended up spending more time at the cottage that we initially thought we would.
Stayed Sunday 28 June 2009
I had a wonderful stay in that cottage because it was decorated the way I like with lots of passion and used recycled things. Perfect for a family who want to relax and not eat always at the restaurant. We even managed to do a good fish bbq! The owners were really nice and hosted us with warm.

This was a charming house, well-equipped, peaceful, comfortable and with a lovely garden. There were many unusual features which served to differentiate this property. The outside seating included garden chairs, a patio set, a suspended chair and a suspended bed. The garden was full of lovely flowers and interesting artefacts. THe house included all the catering equipment and more than enough electronic entertainment. The property is very convenient for Rhodes town to the North and has good connections to the main East coast road and the airport. Above all, the welcome was outstanding and we were sad to have to leave!
A warm welcome by Nikos and his mother. A nice house with several rooms and all necessary equipment. Handy those two bathrooms. A lot of space on the outside and a choice whether to sit and eat in front of the house or whether to relax at the swimming pool. Took the time for a couple of barbecues. Enjoyed feeding the chicken and collecting their eggs. No other people around, which you may or may not like. Good starting point for car trips in all directions. A success!
A wonderful place to relax and enjoy. Both the house and the surroundings were beautiful and with the new private pool we couldnt ask for more. Rhodos also provides a good mix of culture and fun, for all ages.
This charming country house in a very quiet olive grove exceeded all our expectations. The owner went out of his way to be helpfull with advise and supplying basic essentials (beer, wine, water, bread, cheese, ham and his own olive soap) for our very late arrival. We even collected fresh eggs and vegetables from the garden daily. Fantastic. The amenities were all that a traveller requires for a very comforable stay. I would highly recommend the property to anyone wishing a quiet and comfortale stay.
The Olive House was exactly as described, it was clean and everything one needed for a perfect holiday was provided. We arrived in the early hours of the morning to a beautifully lit garden and most welcoming provisions of food. The garden provided a perfect relaxation retreat from the intense Greek sunshine and we spent far more time here than exploring the island. The owners were very helpful, kind, considerate and pleasant. We enjoyed eggs, figs and grapes from the garden each day. We delighted in making new discoveries in the garden too, so many interesting features. Yes, the approach to the house is via a small light industrial estate, but you are not aware of this- no noise, traffic, pollution etc. In fact everytime we stepped through the small green gate into the property it was like entering Narnia, a beautiful, magical place which we were sorry to leave after our 2 weeks stay. We were in Rhodes for my sons wedding and his friends visited us here, they too found it delightful so this property appealed to all age ranges. If you want to stay on Rhodes away from the tourist drag , yet only 15 mins to the beach , in a property with character then this could very well be the property for you. We loved it.
I cant explain what a joy it was to stay in this lovely place. We looked forward to going "home" every night and were happy to spend time at the villa instead of racing around. Nikos and Gudrun have paid attention to detail and the efforts they have put into the house are outstanding. It has charm, all the mod cons and then all those things that you need in order to feel far away from real life - chickens laying eggs, a hanging day bed, olive trees, visiting cats... they even made sure we had some supplies, such as milk and bread, on our arrival. I would gladly recommend this spot to anyone wanting to avoid tourist traps and I will definitely try to stay there again. In fact, wed love to try their other properties based on our time in the olive grove.
We have been to Rhodes for 10 times and this house was by far the most beautiful place we stayed on the island. The house is well equipped and comfortable and we especially liked the garden / patio. If we come to Rhodes again, we will definitely try to book this house once more.

My name is Nikos Stavridis and i am the owner of Olive yard and Myrtia house. I would like to introduce myself to the future visitors of my properties so they can create a more complete image of my way of thinking that has a strong reflection to the kind of vacations that i want to provide to my customers. To begin with, if i could describe myself i would say that i have a restless spirit with an artistic side but also with a strong environmental character. Before my occupation with the vacation industry, I have been an owner of a jewellery house for many years and i used to create most of our jewelleries. One of my hobbies is the cultivation of fruits and vegetables and also my farm.
