By entering the Medieval gates of The Old town of Rhodes you enter in a different world.
Anna’s House can accommodate up to 8 people in 4 separate air-conditioned bedrooms in two separate floors. The location is amazing as you are just 200 meters from the center of Old town, 500meters from the harbor and less than 1000 meters from the center of Rhodes town center.
By entering the property you are in a traditional dining area with an amazing ambience, a door leads to the ground floors double bedroom and another leads to a very comfortable living room, with the sitting area and a 42inch Led Sat TV. The large fully equipped kitchen offer all the necessary equipment for families including a washing machine and extra dining area. Wooden stairs by the kitchen leads to a semi floor bedroom with a double bed. The family bathroom is located on the ground floor with bathtub, sink and bided. The wooden 19th century stairs by the living room leads to the 1st floor where the two bedrooms are located (one with double bed and one with twins and balcony). Both bedrooms offer wall draws and great view to the old town neighborhood. Every bedroom has an A/C as well as the living room area.
At the main terrace we offer to our guests a large 10 person dining area, amazing decoration from the past and a BBQ for unforgettable evenings. Another bathroom with shower is located next to.
The hidden gem of the house is the second small terrace by the kitchen, were under the lemon tree you will have amazing relaxing moment.
Although the house is located in the center of the old town, you will find it an amazingly quiet place, a wonderful oasis in midst the busier outside world.

OUTSIDE
The house is situated just 200 meters from the center of the Old town, 500meters from the harbor and less than 1km from the center of Rhodes town center, 2km from famous Elli Beach 12km from the airport. All restaurants and bars are in walking distance and we are happy to recommend some of the best ones, known mainly to locals.

The old town of Rhodes is the oldest inhabited medieval town in Europe and as World Heritage Monument it is protected by UNESCO.
Throughout history its various occupants have left their traces in this beautiful town and as you get lost in the maze of its many cobble-paved streets, you will be left with a deep impression created by the mixture of oriental and western architecture.
Every historical period from the Ancient Greek,Hellenistic,Roman and Byzantine times to the Venetians/ Knights of St.John and later to the Ottomans; all these have left their mark in this old town.
This mixture of cultures makes the Old Town of Rhodes a living monument, creating many opportunities for the visitor to wander around and explore the different faces of this lovely place.

I wanted to give you some important feedback for the property Anna's House, Gavala Street, Rhodes Old Town, as there are a number of serious issues, that in my and the others guests, staying with me, opinions, need to be addressed in order to avoid further disappointment for future guests.

Please be aware that these are purely objective observational references, and not unreasonable criticisms. These important issues are:

1) All the mattresses are of the very hard type, with no protectors. I am an ex hotelier so I know about mattresses. We suggest either placing mattress toppers, or new mattresses altogether in the 'medium firm' category (this is the hotel industry standard), with proper mattress protectors.
2) The pillows are far too uncomfortable and it is difficult to rest your head upon them appropriately.
3) The sheets do not fit some of the beds.
4) The drain in the enclosed courtyard emits foul gas when the wind blows, and needs covering. This makes it unpleasant to sit outside.
5) The outside shower and WC needs to be clearly described as an outside facility. However, the shower drain (a wet-room) does not function properly, with water dangerously pooling on the floor. This shower is not fit or safe for proper use.
6) The Barbecue in the courtyard cannot be used, simply because the smoke would easily invade the neighbour's terrace, directly above the courtyard, from which they dry their laundry.
7) There is no toaster in the property, so toast is off the menu!
8) The washing machine leaks which presents a health and safety issue as guests could easily slip over on the spillage across the kitchen floor.
9) There are no plugs in the kitchen sink, or any plastic washing-up bowls; which is an issue as there is no dishwasher.
10) The bath is badly stained with limescale, and it needs a deep clean.
11) There is a large, sharp chip out of the rim of the bidet, and this could cause injury.
12) The interiors of the upstairs wardrobes actually emit a foul smell, making them unusable. Consequently, we were unable to use them!
13) We suggest a small roof deck, made of wood, possibly, on the domed roof, would be a useful area for sunbathing, etc. Additionally, the washing line is very difficult to safely access due to the slope of the dome. I nearly sprained my ankle hanging up washing.
14) The window in the ground floor bedroom needs modesty curtains.
15) There are a lack of usable drawers in the upstairs bedrooms, and surface areas are also at a minimum.
16) There are no locks on the bathrooms.

I hope this objective and constructive feedback is of use to you. Certainly, if the owner could address these issues, the price of this rental property could feasibly double.

Apart from the above issues, we really enjoyed our stay at this historic property as it had a lot of historical character and was in a particularly convenient location. The neighbour's were all delightful and the quiet street of Gavala was picturesque.

Best regards

Keith Warwick
