The Villa is absolutely gorgeous (we had Villa Meliti). The design is contemporary and stylish. The villa is full of light and there are patios and balconies on every floor. The villas are situated on the coastal road, you have a view of the sea from the villa and you can walk across the road to the beach in under a minute. They have even placed beach umbrellas and sunbeds on the beach for the guests. The kitchen is very well equipped and you will find everything you need in the villa including washing machine, hair dryers, a good selection of tv channels in English and other languages, good and free wifi, plenty of towels for the bathroom and the pool/beach, and an information directory on the villa, where to go/eat etc. The staff (manager Karen, and cleaning and maintenance staff Elda and Antonio) and the owner are all very friendly and helpful and clearly take great pride in the high standard of the villas and every effort is made for guests to have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. When we arrived they had even stocked the fridge with supplies including wine, bottled water, bread, ham, cheese, crisps and more. This was such a nice and welcoming touch. There were also flowers in the house and a liitle rosebud in the box where we collected our key. The manager was also there to meet us on arrival. The pool is beautiful and looks stunning all lit up at night. The gardens are also beautiful, with herbs you can use for cooking and little olive trees. The photographs on the web site are accurate and a true reflection of the villa. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and the bed linen and towels were spotless and new. The villa was spotlessly clean and although a few years old everything looked as good as new.
When you are eating your breakfast on the deck, beside the pool and looking out at the sea you will say "this is the life"!
We went at the end of March/start of April which is very early in the season and none of the local restaurants were open yet. So we had to drive into the villages and Lindos and Rodos to find restaurants that were open. However if you go during the peak season you will find around 5 nice looking restaurants within walking distance of the villa. The pool is not heated and was too cold to use in April however I understand that during the warmer months the sun heats up the pool nicely.
Kiotari is a quiet area and makes for a peaceful relaxing holiday. You do need a car here if you want to visit other areas. I would recommend visiting Lindos, Rhodes Town (and The Mystery of Rhodes game and the Throne of Helios both in Rhodes Town). If you do go in the low season, restaurants that are open that we would recommend are Roulas in Lardos, Stefani's in Lindos and The Lindos Ice Bar. Snorkeling in St Paul's Bay in Lindos was also very enjoyable. The advantage of going so early is that you have the place to yourself and the roads and beaches are almost empty. You also get a more authentic taste of the island. The weather was pleasant and mostly sunny with temperatures around 20 degrees but cold at night. The downside is that it lacks a bit of atmosphere. Our teenager would have preferred to go later in the season when the water parks are open and the water sports are up and running (and the pool and sea warmer). However my husband and I found it more relaxing going this time of the year and the other 2 kids aged 10 and 8 enjoyed the holiday especially chilling out in the villa and the snorkeling in St Paul's Bay.
Rhodes itself is a very pretty island with a beautiful coastline and beaches, azure seas, a long and interesting history, and Greek charm and character.
Enjoy your holiday!
