I am currently sitting under the pergola of apartment C looking out across the pool and onto the blue Mediterranean, and I really don't want to go home.
The apartment offers everything you could want, spacious bedrooms, nice bathrooms, open plan kitchen/lounge and utility room. It also has free wifi, air conditioning, huge windows with heavy duty electric shutters, a safe, and a TV. The pool is well maintained and a decent size, 1.4m deep all over. The surrounding area is nicely presented, with exotic shrubs and fresh mint. A barbecue is also available. It has enough sun loungers to support a small army, and there is a sheltered area with table and chairs for those who have burnt themselves to within an inch of their lives.
A 5 minute walk down the dirt path takes you to the quiet sea front, where you will find locals sitting on their porches watching the world go by or in the sea talking. Such a relaxed way of life. There is also 3 restaurants in a row with a basic shop in between. Stefano's grill offers the best food, but the other 2 are good, especially if you love sea food as it is some of the best I've encountered. There's also other restaurants walking distance in either direction, The staff are the most friendly you could wish for (and all speak English, phew!)
A 15 minute walk or 2 minute drive south takes you to a super market and butchers. A 5 minute drive north brings you to Kiotari village,
which has shops, bars, restaurants and lovely beach. Lindos is 20 minutes away, Rhodes an hour. Both worth a visit. Driving here is easy and there's literally just one main road around the island which winds and bends around the craggy rock mountains, spectacular.
My only complaint; we only came for a week and not 2. Will have to come back soon.

“Wonderful holiday, beautiful villa.”

We have just had a wonderful holiday in Kiotori celebrating my husbands birthday. It was made even better by staying at the Gonos Villas. We cannot thank Despina enough for ensuring that we had everything we needed during our stay. The villa was beautiful and maintained to a high standard with everything we could want on hand. We found having a car was essential, especially for those who have difficulty walking. We would certainly look at returning in the future. Thank you Despina for all your care and attention.

“Great Villa”

We wanted a week to relax and found this villa with Thompson holidays. Great location, well cared for villa. Easy walk down to sea side Tavernas.
The only problem was Thompson holidays with massive queues in Manchester over two hours to check bags in and big queue in Rhodes.
GREAT VILLA, POOR TRAVEL COMPANY.

Thank you Michael for your good comments about my villa. I am sure that Thomson will look into the airport problems and try for solutions.
Hope to have you back soon. I wish you have a good time in winter.

“Great Venue”

We booked this accommodation via Thomson. We paid per head and the car was included with the villa. Having read the reviews, we paid the highest price which was only a few pounds extra, because we wanted Villa C or D. We got D!
We were delighted with the accommodation which had a kitchen well stocked with utensils, pans, etc. It is on 2 floors, with 3 bedrooms. You have a dishwasher and washing machine. The choice of shower or bath. I could see the sea from my bed and probably had one of the best views I've ever had from Greek accommodation. The living area is also made up of an open plan kitchen / dining / living room with TV, DVD player etc.
One of the best things about this property is the outdoors. The pool is maintained twice a week. The garden is beautiful and well kept. There is a BBQ. We ate al fresco for every meal.
We had a problem with the air con breaking down and this was fixed within hours of making the call.
We walked to the nearest beach and took the car to all the local haunts, beaches, etc. I would recommend getting a guide book, though there are some suggestions in the villa.
There were some nice restaurants on the beaches in Kiotari and Gennadi. A slightly longer drive takes you to Pefkos, with lots of restaurants, cash points, shops and more beaches, which I preferred to Gennadi Square, Lardos, etc. We shopped at the local supermarket and Carrefour and got everything we needed.
We like old buildings, archaeology and walking and had all that less than an hour from home. A short drive from the villa took us to something new every day and we had a couple of lazy days relaxing at the villa too. We visited many beaches, so everything most holiday-ers could want is there. Weather was consistently good.
This is one of the few occasions when I would go back to the same place, since we went for a week, and it just wasn't enough :).

“Fantastic 2 weeks stay at Gonos Villas”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had our villa holiday between 15th/30th July 2015. The villa is about an hours drive from Rhodes Airport. We were amazed how big the villa was, with enough room to sleep 6 people easily. There was everything you needed, more like a home from home. The pool and garden have a great view of the sea and are will kept with the pool being cleaned twice a week. A car is included with the villa which you can upgrade (the car included is small). The shops are only a short drive away, there are also a number of restaurants along the coastal road.
