“a nearly perfect place”

At first I would like to join the comments from Tal K from Israel who was a guest right before us in Villa Litsa. He describe exactly and detailed this great place. The difficult and slow wlan, the beds, this great pool, the descrption of the environment. Why should we repeat his real pefect report.
Here just a few comments. Sometimes the barking of the dog from the neighbour is annoying. Especially when you are in paradise.
And be prepared... the gardener who mow the gras come without an appointment open the gate and work around you even you lay in the garden. So do the housekeeping which come once a week but they rang the doorbell first and ask politely if they can do their work.
We would recommend to rent a car with that you have a perfect startbase to explore the island and its near to Lindos, Lardos and Arhangelos.
We tested a lot of restaurants but the best gyros and even the cheapest we got in Kalathos "Souvlakeri" When you drive in direction Lindos on the left side beside the pharmacy and bakerie. Test it! Have a good time...

“Great villa - recommended”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed for a week on August, a couple with two children (4.5 and 7).
- Location: The villa is located in a quiet place, neighboring another vacation rental on one side (villa Elpida), a local resident on one side and an olive orchard on the remaining two sides.
The location is very good in my opinion, as it is within a few minutes walk from: Kalathos beach, a mini-market, a few tavernas and also some finer restaurants.
It is located a few minutes drive from: A large supermarket , Lindos, St. Pauls bay, Agathi beach. Any other attraction on the island is up to 50 minutes drive (Rodos town, the water park, butterfly valley).
It can be a bit difficult to find the first time you arrive. Just take the road directly in front the Atrium Palace and turn to the driveway in front of an old yellow/blue bus.
- The property: The villa resides on an approximately 500 squared meters lot. Outside you have a lovely garden with a built outdoor charcoal grill, a nice pool, outdoor dining area and private parking. Inside, the villa has two levels. The ground level has a nicely sized living room with fireplace, TV, indoor dining area, toilet and a fully equipped kitchen. There is an A/C unit in the living room which effectively cools the entire ground floor. The top floor has two bedrooms, each one with its own A/C unit, a bathroom with two sinks and a shower (no bathtub). Each bedroom has a private balcony and in addition another large balcony which you can access from the top floor.
Equipment: The villa is very well equipped. The kitchen contains a microwave, stove, oven, slice toaster, press toaster, electric kettle, fridge, dishwasher, laundry machine, dishes, silverware, pots and pans and pretty much anything you have at home. In addition, we found a floating tube in the pool and some games for the kids. Every piece of equipment is in good condition and of good quality, so it is really nice to use the kitchen.
Consumables: The villa has supplies of instant coffee, sugar, vegetable oil, olive oil, salt, vinegar, pepper, some spices, toilet paper, dishwasher tabs, garbage bags. Upon arrival we had a bottle of milk, natural orange juice, red and white wine bottles waiting for us. Very nice indeed.
Maintenance: Cleanliness is perfect upon arrival, from there on, it's up to you. The pool is surprisingly very clean, seems it is cleaned almost every day. The garden is well taken care of, so the grass is green and the plants look nice and healthy. The kitchen tap has a pull out nozzle, which does not really work and should be fixed. In addition, water pressure is not very high all throughout the house. There are two garden hoses, which continuously drip and form puddles outside, so I routed them to water the garden.
The house is equipped with wifi, which was the worst thing there. We had three android devices, none of which could access the internet over wifi, no matter what I tried to do. We also had a windows laptop which was able to connect to the internet without any problems, but the connection was rather slow. Unfortunately, the owner Takis did not help with this. He was really nice and friendly on the phone, but bottom line - no internet on our mobile phones and tablet all week. In regards to this, I would like to note that I am a technical expert in this field, so the problem was not our equipment or usage, but the router, which is not configured properly.
Sleep quality: One of the bedrooms has a built platform as a bed, equipped with a single mattress and a small double mattress laid side by side, so it is not too comfortable for a couple. However, our kids enjoyed sleeping there very much. The other bedroom has a small double bed (1.4m x 1.9m), which is too small for such a property in my opinion. In addition, the mattress is not very comfortable and the bed squeaks with every movement. Also, each of the bedrooms has a large window door which opens to a balcony. It closes with a planked door, which lets in sunlight, and there are no real curtains, so there is not way to darken the room if you want to sleep in late.
Overall: This is a great villa, great location, great amenities and maintenance, everything looks pretty new and in good condition. The main points that are lacking are the wifi and the bed. The pool is really great and usable, the kids enjoyed it very much. We had a wonderful vacation there. I would definitely book again when in the area, and also recommend others.

““Absolute Gem””
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at this villa from 9th to 16th May 2015, we could not of asked for anything better.

The villa is spacious with 2 good size double bedrooms, equipment in the villa is top standard, if you want nightlife entertainment and loads of drinking holes this is not the place for you - go to Faliraki.
This Villa is well maintained in all areas, pool maintenance 3 times a week - the pool is not to deep (about 5ft 6in all round) we had many good hours spent in there.
There is a short walk to the beach (not the best, as lack of shaded areas in the hot sun), but with a great pool at the Villa who needs the beach.
We could not recommend this place highly enough, if you want a relaxing holiday with great restaurants to eat within walking distance, this is the place for you.
We would also recommend you hire a car, but the only down side are the directions on how to find the Villa, the signs are faded from all the sunshine, my advice would be is head towards the Atrium Palace Hotel, there is a big round mirror on the right hand side, turn right and follow the road to the end you will see 2 villas on the right.
Have a great holiday.

“Gorgeous villa in a quiet but wonderful place.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just back from one week in the villa litsa. I was slightly worried before we arrived as this was the first time we have travelled without booking a package holiday. My worries were needles, the contact with the holiday let people was excellent they arranged for a car from and too the airport. The guy who collected us went out of his way to show us where every thing was, the shop, the beach, restaurants and even drove us up to lindos. We arrived very late and it was great of him to do this. The villa was spotless with a lovely pool and sun beds and air conditioning in the living room and bedrooms. There are four restaurants a big hotel and beach all within walking distance. It is quiet which we like but the bus stop is just up the road and only 5 minutes ride to lindos. We struggled to get a taxi but the bus runs regular. Good holiday, very very hot!
