Beautiful views from the balcony literally three steps from the beach. Very friendly small village with several tavernas/bars but quiet and peaceful in April. Studio apartment with good facilities, well furnished. We will go back again.

My wife Clare & I were looking for a beach holiday off the beaten track with the right combination of creature comforts, sun, sand and food. Having been charmed by an owner-direct flat in Provence in the past, we decided to take the same approach to this search and chanced upon Tanya's listing on TripAdvisor. Thorough reading of reviews yielded proof to us that it was worth a shot, so we booked in directly with Tanya via email - this process was swift and efficient and we found ourselves with a week in Rhodes, booked and confirmed in no time.

Travel for us (from Dublin) was never going to be instantaneous, so we decided to build a varied outbound / inbound route. Going we flew Dublin - Heathrow - Athens with an overnight; returning was Rhodes - Athens - Dublin all in one go. Needless to say we were left with an appreciation of exactly how far away Rhodes is from Ireland as well as a new-found love for Aegean Airways.

After a swift taxi ride on arrival in the baking heat from Rhodes to Haraki (€55) we arrived and were immediately greeted by a charming couple from the UK who lived above the holiday rental in a similar property. The taxi left us at the back of the flat and I'll always remember the words of our new neighbour: "have you seen the front yet?".

Haraki Bay is a small crescent bay with one layer of three-story flats / restaurants lining what can only be described as an idyllic beach, half pebble and half sand, not unlike a large swimming pool. We soon learned that it was a traditional holiday destination for two neighbouring villages, complete with the intrigue that this implies...the overwhelming feeling was that we had stepped into a very relaxed Greek village environment in which little was signposted or obvious but there was a fabric of mutual understanding, respect and a desire to unwind from the everyday.

Thus started a solid 7 days of an enviable routine: early morning breakfast of locally sourced fresh fruit & yogurt, 3 hours of sun bathing on the Haraki Bay Hotel's sun-loungers (complete with periodic dips and snorkelling in this glorious enclosed corner of the Med), lunch on the apartment's white-washed balcony out of the blazing sun, a second 3 hour stint on the beach, a sundowner on the balcony as the heat receded, a delicious meal on the seafront and a final night cap, again on the balcony.

The above is by no means an indication of what is available in Haraki and its surroundings but was a regimen of choice. There are two other beaches immediately adjacent to Haraki within easy striking distance, regular sea cruises that visit the bay, an historic town (Lindos) in sight across the bay and a plethora of sites to see on Rhodes, all of which we are saving for future visits.

One lasting impression for us was that Haraki seemed to attract like-minded couples & families from all over the Eurozone. On our little slice of beach we were in the company of Italians, Austrians, Germans, Russians, English, French and of course Greek sun-seekers. The latter were represented by visitors from around the country as well as locals and their returned second generation from far flung places such as New York and Melbourne. For us, this mixture provided endless hours of fascination with people, languages and culture.

On a practical note, Haraki offers all of the necessary amenities while away: a selection of excellent restaurants, the Haraki Bay Hotel, excellently stocked supermarkets and a handful of bars for late night enjoyment. The entire beachfront side is pedestrianised (all motor vehicles are restricted to the back lane way), adding to the serenity of the location. It is best to armed with actual euros but the cost of living is extremely reasonable - our budget for the aforementioned regimen was in the neighbourhood of €75 per day.

Our advice to potential visitors: if you are after a beach getaway that offers peaceful solitude and relaxation, look no further. Tanya's professional and conscientious management of her modern and supremely comfortable property is second to none and will not leave you disappointed. As for Haraki, it is now one of our frequent nostalgic daydreams, permanently imprinted as I'm sure thousands of people across the world and over time would agree...
