Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Maria et sa famille. La maison est très sympathique, bien décorée et très bien située dans la vieille ville de Rhodes. Maria nous a très bien conseillé pour nos différents besoins. Nous n'avons eu aucun problème. Adresse à recommander!
Merci pour l'accueil.
The house was easy to find via a taxi from the airport, and we were met at the door just as we arrived. It is just as wonderful as the pictures, was clean, had everything we needed, and was very comfortable. The location was great for exploring the old town and is within a few minutes walk of the ferry port.
My hosts, Maria and Nikitas made us feel very welcome, they helped us locate the house which was in a very authentic neighbourhood and the history of the building was astounding. It has been standing for over 600 years! They recommended a great, reasonable restaurant outside the city walls that was delicious. The accomodations were as advertised and my kids enjoyed sleeping in a "castle". My only recommendations for the owners would be to improve the kitchen, but a quick trip to Ikea could easily turn that around.
Scott ,thank you so much for your nice words for us and our place.We try our best for our guests :)The pleasure was ours to accommodate your lovely family in our place .You were such a friendly, responsible and communicative guests with very well raised children. Thank you also for your recommendations ,are always welcome. We would like to see you again:)and wish you all the best!!Nikolas,Nikitas and Maria
Our experience was good in Rhodes! Our hosts helped us with a cheap taxi and gave us recommendations for dining. Old town itself is nice but certainly a tourist town, if you stay, definitely rent a car to visit other parts and visit the islands like Symi. The house was clean and the air conditioning was great as well as wifi and a washer!! The stairs up to the beds are very steep so be careful if you are not able to climb. The street was a tad noisy but only with mopeds. The family was very helpful and have us maps and a book of Rhodes! I would recommend this cave house.
It is a lovely apartment with real character, and sleeping in the long stone bedroom upstairs felt wonderful. The air conditioning works very well too. It is in an excellent location within the Old Town, and there are nice cafes just around the corner, or a short walk into the main busy part of the old town.
If you have car it can be easily parked outside the apartment, but the first time you arrive you will need to park just outside the Old Town wall, and walk a very short distance to the apartment to get a parking permit from Nikolas, who is very friendly and helpful.
Lovely apartment in a great location in the Old Town with easy parking. Air conditioning was very welcoming, Wifi excellent, a reasonable beach just around the corner and loads of restaurants and bars further into the Old Town. Maria was very flexible with our rather messy arrival times in terms of collection of the keys - I think the first of our party arrived after 10pm, so it was good of her to arrange that to be possible!
A wonderful older style and quirky property within the walls of the old town thereby providing easy access to shopping, restaurants and beaches.
Shane thank you very much for your beautiful words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our place and you liked the surrounding area.And we were very happy with you, both for communication and for the attention you have shown at our home. We would like to visit us again. We wish you always the best!!! Nikolas and Maria

I am a sociologist and working in adult school
. My life is divided between Karpathos and Rhodes ,because together with my husband professionally engaged in tourism ,as we have a small hotel and a traditional restaurant in Karpathos since 1996.
I'm fond of human communication with people of different ethnicity and culture and we are happy because each new season we meet new people from around the world..
I like reading books, especially those with historical and cultural content.
Sometimes due to work commitments may be out of the island of Rhodes.Those days my brother Nicolas will be next to you.
My brother was involved in the renovation and decoration of both houses ,that is his job.He is very creative person.
With us you will feel the real greek hospitality that for more than 10 years offer to people who visit us.
