Stone built Villa Rodanthi rests peacefully on a hillside, surrounded by nature, indulgent in its privacy and panorama of turquoise hues of the sea and burnt orange sunsets. A harmony between old and new, wide stone walls and original beamed ceilings characterfully blend with modern facilities. A grand terrace boasts the 120 sqm pool with inbuilt jacuzzi and a glorious, golden sandy beach sweeps along the coastline below.

The space
Villa Rodanthi is approved by the Greek Tourism Organization & managed by "etouri vacation rental management".

Stone built Villa Rodanthi rests peacefully on a hillside, surrounded by nature, indulgent in its privacy and panorama of endless turquoise hues of the sea. Having been lovingly restored, the result provides a harmony between old and new. Wide stone walls and original beamed ceilings characterfully blend with modern facilities. Arch doorways open onto a glorious terrace large with a huge 120 sq.m. pool with inbuilt jacuzzi. You will find delight in the ever changing vista of the horizon, where clear blue skies transform into burnt orange sunsets. Horseshoe bays and a glorious, golden sandy beach sweep along the coastline, with tavernas and beach bars at your disposal, close to the villa. The charming old town of Rethymno with its fortress and harbour, array of restaurants, cafes, boutiques and amenities is just a short drive along the coast, where you can reconnect with society before the haven of Villa Rodanthi embraces you once again. With 5 double bedrooms, the villa sleeps 10 comfortably.

Ground Floor
The 4750sqm plot of Villa Rodanthi greets you with its vineyard and gardens, including fruit trees, olives and an organic vegetable garden, which you are encouraged to pick from.

Entering the 200sqm house, the ground floor space is differentiated by open stone archways between rooms, creating a sense of open plan living yet also allowing some segregation. Inside the main entrance, one finds a small vestibule with a desk. Continuing through the space leads to the first dining area with a table which seats 4. Providing a relaxed social space where you can play games and congregate away from the sunlight, it leads to the lounge which offers a homely space with a fireplace and 65” Smart TV. Furnished with comfy sofas , the lounge has been carefully arranged for communal gatherings and to enjoy the view provided from both the windows and patio doors which lead to the pool terrace.

The second and main indoor dining table which seats 8 is found to the side of the lounge, again positioned to enjoy the exterior views but also allowing seamless access to the kitchen. Well sized and fully equipped with appliances, the kitchen provides all the facilities you need to rustle up home cooked holiday dinners plus a stocked wine fridge (payable locally) so you always have a delicious glass of wine to accompany your meal. A further table for 4 can be found in the kitchen for casual breakfasts and an exterior door leads directly to the barbecue area and outdoor dining table for practical flow.

The first of the five double bedrooms can be found on the ground floor. Characterised by the light stone walls found throughout the house, the room is equipped with a king size bed (1,60 x 2,00) , ample storage space, a mini fridge, 32” Smart TV and patio doors which lead to a furnished private balcony looking out to the garden. A modern bathroom is available on the ground floor with a toilet, sink and shower cubicle.

First Floor
Following the wooden staircase to the first floor, 4 double bedrooms can be found. Each bedroom is designed for comfort, boasting a king size bed (1,60 x 2,00), 32” Smart TV, mini fridge and balcony. Ceiling fans are also available within each bedroom as the villa is built from stone, meaning it is naturally cooler in the summer, reducing the need for air conditioning. Two rooms have garden views while the 2 bedrooms at the front of the house share a large balcony boasting pool, sea and countryside views. Comfortable in both size and features, 3 of the bedrooms share a bathroom with toilet, sink, shower cubicle and washing machine, while the fourth bathroom offers luxurious ensuite facilities including double sinks and two shower cabins.

Outdoor Area
Villa Rodanthi sits within a 4750sqm plot, with 600sqm of outdoor living space. Wrapped in gardens boasting fruit trees, vegetables and a vineyard, it forms a natural haven which is only heightened by the surrounding countryside. The outdoor amenities include:

- A huge 120sqm pool, 20 x 6 m, with sloped entrance and maximum depth of 1,50m which can be heated upon prior request. The size of the pool offers the perfect place to play or exercise. In tune with the Villa Rodanthi policy to try to reduce its footprint on the environment, the pool is cleaned by an eco friendly salt electrolysis system. The pool and Jacuzzi can be heated upon request with an additional charge of 80€/day. (Please note that the pool heating can be used upon advance request for the entire stay and it requires at least one week advance notice.)
- A jacuzzi within the main pool, with seating area looking out to the captivating vista
- Spacious poolside terrace offering comfortable sunbeds with mattress and umbrellas for shade. The terrace is large enough to accommodate a small wedding reception.
- 2 separate tables, each providing seating for 8 people, positioned under the pergola beyond the main house, from which to enjoy chromatic sunsets and sea views while relaxing with a sociable drink or catching up on a good book.
- A barbecue area with charcoal barbecue, wood oven and outdoor sink, all under the shade of a pergola.
- A long wooden dining table that seats 12 within the barbecue area for al fresco dining
- 4 exterior access WC’s and 2 exterior access bathrooms with shower cubicles located by the pool, decorated and equipped to high design such as those within the main house and providing poolside convenience.
- A path leads around the house and through the large gardens that beautifully envelop the house with plants, vegetables, fruit trees and a home vineyard
- Ample parking space within the villa grounds for at least 4 cars.

ETOURI is located in 8 I. Petichaki Str. Rethymno, Crete and is approved by the Greek Tourist Organisation.

The founder - Kostas Vasilakis, who studied Economics and Marketing, got involved with the vacation rental industry 10 years ago since his father built one of the first holiday villas in Crete. Immediately he understood that conventional vacation rental agencies were focusing more on increasing the number of bookings by adding more villas in their portfolio than helping the owner of each villa to operate better or guests to have truly great experiences. He started ETOURI and made goal of his life to make this company DIFFERENT. A company with first priority: the 5 star reviews - totally satisfied guests and not the number of bookings - with believing in his philosophy that the success and having higher number of bookings will follow if we spend time for our guests and assist them to make even one day of their holidays better. Kostas invented many aspects of managing vacation rentals, creating methods and procedures and now he is considered one of the pioneers in the business.

ETOURI operates as a vacation rental management company providing more than just an accommodation service. A team of consultants check the villas, guide the owners and create experiences with a wide range of services according to the needs of every individual guest.
ETOURI has the full management of all the vacation rentals that it represents, knowing everything about them and the areas in which they are located. Along we have a list of exclusive services to provide a complete holiday experience on top of our support and concierge service.
-----------
The past 10 years, ETOURI has been established as the industry standard in Crete due to its early adoption of innovative methods of promotion and introduction of exclusive customer services. ETOURI has built a network of partners, customers and tools that elevated its flexibility, productivity and results in the industry. ETOURI’s success opened the road to other individuals and companies to approach its methods and overall develop and upgrade the complete industry in Crete.
-----------
Today it goes one step further by creating the “Holiday Advisor” concierge service with:
- 24 hr phone service available during the stay
- using a phone at the villa
- like the reception desk in hotels, plus more online tools such as “login page” for travellers and villa owners to offer easier customer experience and much more to come…
