Thomas and Daiva thank you so much for your nice words,we appreciate it a lot and it was our pleasure that we had such a kind,friendly and communicative guests.Thank you also for the advise:)We would like to see you again and we wish you all the best:)Nicolas and Maria
Authentic Old Town cottage; good position, sweet balcony is the best feature.
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!
We stayed 10 days at Ilios apartment in august : it is a little bit small for a long stay but the location in the old city is perfect. The balcony is very pleasant compare to the terrace that we didn't use because there was too much sun and too much wind ! That's true it is very noisy in the morning (many motos, scooters...). In the bedroom, it miss dark curtains or shutters and at list one bedside lamp. Nikolas has been welcoming and helpful and we apreciated to have a late check-out the last day.
Christine thank you that you gave a review for us.
Thanks for the kind words about me , the location and the balcony.Thank you also that you took care my place i appreciate it a lot.
I m always trying to do the best i can for my guests.
I have to give so explanations about the issues that you noticed .
In the room there are two kinds of curtains because there are guests that they like dark curtains and other that the prefer light curtains.
If you prefer dark curtains should be pull them .
In the morning some days there is more traffic before 10 am because it is not allowed to enter any vehicles inside the old city after 10 am, so everyone is trying to do all the work until that time .
There is a bedside lamp but some guests dont want it so they hide it¨, you could ask me and i was going to give it to you .The period that you visit us in Rhodes we have the ''meltemi'' a kind of wind that is the reason that blew so much on the terrace ...i wish you all the best and it was nice to meeting you ,Nikolas
Maria's brother was waiting for us upon our arrival. He quickly showed us the apartment, gave us an excellent restaurant tip for a place around the corner, then left us to settle in. The location was superb - just far enough away from the center of Old Town to be quiet, but close enough to be a few minutes' walk to the entire Old Town, the harbor, and the New Town. On our last evening, we discovered that we could exit the medieval gate right behind our building, cross the street, and enjoy the beach and swimming right there! Stairs in the apartment are a bit challenging for older people such as ourselves, but navigable with caution. Thank you, Maria, and your cousin as well, Deb and Jack
Jack and Deb ,thank you for your nice words ,we appreciate it a lot!!You were also such a kind and communicative guests.Thank you that you took care our place like your own house!!I m sorry for the small issues but the apartment is fully booked and it is difficult to solve these small issues that time.We will hear your suggestions .We wish you all the best and we would like to see you again!!!Nikolas and Maria
Unique atmospheric apartment in the middle of the old town which is touristy though still the best place, but just one small block away enough to feel a local atmosphere. In addition, the close location to the port/ bus station makes all transport very convenient. Maria's brother was very service-minded. Only little minus is some noise of the street in the morning but you cannot have it all! A recommended option
thank you for you nice words. Laurent and Alexandra are full of kindness and pleasant mood.Communication between us was very good. It gave us great pleasure that you looked like you had a good time In Rhodes and in our place.Thank you and that you watched our house as if it were your own home . We would love to see you again. We want to visit you too in Dubai we hope soon:)We wish to both of you always the best!!Nikolas and Maria
