"A truly outstanding villa that ticked every box. All the rooms are a great size, and the air conditioning in each bedroom made it easy to enjoy a great night’s sleep. The attention to detail throughout the villa is really impressive, with a really well stocked kitchen containing every item you would need to make catering at home simple for families.
The outside areas are superb, from the pretty front garden to the large private pool and BBQ area. It was so comfortable relaxing on the sun loungers and the outside sofa in between the many hours spent in the beautiful pool.
Clearly no stone has been left unturned in the pursuit of excellence throughout the villa."
Nadine K & family. Aug '17
"As a family of five, we have enjoyed villa holidays for the past 20 years, mainly in Portugal and Spain. Rhodes was a new location for us so we had little knowledge of the standards of villa accommodation. We can however say that Villa Venus surpassed our expectations. What struck us most was the obvious care and attention to detail in the interior and exterior design. Very modern and comfortable interior. The kitchen was really well equipped with high quality appliances and well stocked with glasses, crockery etc, yet still easy to maintain during our stay (for a group of 6). I don't think there was anything we needed that wasn't available, and it wasn't onerous to keep everything tidy and clean. The level of thought put into the villa was very evident. I just loved the little touches and spent the first few days discovering new decorative signs around the pool area. We enjoyed many long outdoor lunches and late night drinks by the pool!
The location of the villa is ideal. We spent quite a few days in Vlycha Beach, literally 2 minutes by car. Azzuro restaurant deserves special mention (both for lunch and dinner). The staff were so welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to set up a table for our group, even when they were busy. The friendliness shown in all restaurants we went to was really outstanding - both in Lindos town and also in Lardos. Such a beautiful place and beautiful people!
Many thanks to Andy and Val for going the extra mile to make their villa such a modern but comfortable place to stay, and for their trust that it will be well looked after by guests."
The Fulton family. Summer '17
"Just returned from the most amazing week in this beautiful villa. If you're looking for a place in Rhodes, look no further. Beautifully designed and decorated, gorgeous pool and outside area and very well equipped 😊 Couldn't have been happier."
Georgina R & family '17
"The villa was perfect for our needs. Bright, clean, well specified and with a great location, I would recommend to anyone looking for a villa for a family holiday. The owners were very helpful throughout."
J Nash & family. Summer 2016
"Had to get in touch with you to let you know how grateful and happy we all were to stay in your beautiful villa! The pool, gardens and view were first class!
We enjoyed our wedding then back to a tranquil holiday. Now staying near Rhodes Town to see more of the island.
Thanks again for a memorable holiday."
Carolyn N. Summer 2016
"We had a great stay at Villa Venus. We all really enjoyed ourselves & Lindos was lovely.
The villa and all its amenities was home from home & to a very high standard throughout. Would definitely stay at Villa Venus again!"
The Mizen family. Summer 2016
"We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday at Villa Venus. It had everything we needed and more!!
We spent much of our time relaxing in the garden, both front and back, cooling down in the pool and cooking dinner on the barbecue. Our teenage son was delighted with the PlayStation & it felt like home from home.
Would highly recommend Lindos Villa Venus to anyone. The best villa we have ever stayed in."
C Maxwell. 06/2016
"I love it when the reality exceeds the photos on the website and that is villa Venus. Cannot fault this villa in any way, we had the most perfect week & being in Lindos for our sons wedding at St Paul's Bay was magical. "
C&J Jones. Summer 2016
"We really enjoyed our stay recently and we loved Villa Venus! What a fantastic pool also!
We had everything we needed, so thank you for a luxurious stay which made us feel like film stars! I did put some very positive comments in your guest book, which you may have seen. Your instruction details were really clear and helpful.
We enjoyed the barbecue and the herbs too. The beds were comfortable and the towels were soft and fluffy & my personal favourite aspects were the pool, the outside furniture (both front and rear) the comfy bed - the view from the upstairs balcony.....
Hope to see Villa Venus again one day!"
C Whiley. Summer 2015
".....the villa, pool, gardens and facilities were absolutely superb and I have to say did exceed our expectations. We always holiday in villa accommodation and whilst we always hope for the standard that you offer, nowhere else has ever quite managed to reach that standard in practice. We really did appreciate the attention to detail and all the little ‘extras’ that made our stay extremely comfortable.
On a more general note we also found Rhodes to be a beautiful island & the Greeks amongst the friendliest people that we have encountered."
E Darroch & family. July 2015
"The villa exceeded all expectations, it was exceptionally clean and had everything we could wish for. We could not fault such a perfect break in an outstanding villa. We all returned fully recharged and thankyou for making the whole process so easy. We would not hesitate to book again and recommend you to friends and family."
L Holmes. June 2015
"Once again thank you so much for letting us stay in your villa and although the weather wasn't perfect we had, yet again, the most fabulous holiday. Also a big thank you for the welcome pack - the strawberries and fizz were a great start to our holiday.
On our first visit, 3 years ago, we were so impressed with your villa. It was immaculate in every way, a peaceful yet convenient location, beautiful views, style, comfort and provided us with everything we could possibly need and more .... Absolutely perfect.
This being our third visit we are amazed and delighted that each year you improve the villa even further. My son loved the improved WIFI, PS3 and the selection of his favourite PS3 games, my husband loved the new TV package. Sad though this sounds, but I like to cook - I loved the new butchers block worktop in the kitchen - so handy for preparing dinner.
We all loved the new pool loungers, the décor, furniture and furnishings are immaculate and even more comfortable.
The front garden is stunning, the front terrace seating area being my favourite spot to find a breeze and watch the sun set over the hills.
The pool area with beautiful planting, useful herbs and the roofed terrace - great for shade or the odd rain shower, makes the perfect outdoor living room.
I have to add I loved the new lighting. And we all slept so well in the extremely comfortable beds.
Your attention to style, detail and quality is amazing and it is obvious that you truly care about the comfort and enjoyment of your guests holidays.
To sum up we absolutely love your villa and would highly recommend. We hope to book 2 weeks next year."
The Carringtons. May 2015
"We very much enjoyed our holiday in your lovely villa. It was well equipped and the outside facilities and pool were amongst the best we have had in our years of villa holidays"
The Walker family
"To say we loved you villa is an understatement. It was perfect!
Great location, gorgeous gardens & pool & the villa was a real home away from home. We all wanted to move in!
Spent our mornings in the pool & afternoons at St Paul's Bay. We had some amazing meals in Lindos town & even ventured as far as Lardos on our hired bikes. The people of Rhodes were so friendly & welcoming we had a wonderful holiday. We would love to come back."
"We would all like to thank you for such a beautiful villa, the pool was fantastic. We really enjoyed the holiday, found it extremely relaxing & I am sure we shall return at some stage in the future."
The Kemp family
"Just wanted to say it was the loveliest villa we have ever stayed in. We wish that we had booked for longer!"
Thank you & we will definitely be recommending it."
"Everyone home safe and sound after a great holiday. It was the perfect location as the wedding and reception was at the Hotel Lindos Mare, just a few minutes up the road.
The villa was great and we were all so impressed as we walked through the door on the first night, everything was spotless and perfect. The pool and gardens were beautiful with enough space easily for the six people to relax & enjoy the surroundings, you must have put a great deal of time and effort in to get everything just right. We shall look at returning and drop you a line when we have a date in mind for 2015"
"We enjoyed very much our stay at your villa & it became our little corner of paradise for a week or so"
"Just wanted to say many thanks for letting us have use of your beautiful home once again. We had a fantastic holiday and as before your villa, pool and gardens were immaculate and equipped with everything we could possibly need.
Hopefully we'll be in touch soon to re-book for next year."
"We had a wonderful time. Thank you - your villa far exceeded expectations & we would love to visit again at some point for a longer stay."
The Patel family.
"Fantastic!! Villa Venus just as it says on the tin and so much more. A real relaxed feel to the villa and surrounds with everything you could need inside & anything else a short walk away at the local supermarket.
Would definitely recommend to friends and family, and will be booking again. Thank you both for such a lovely, hassle free holiday."
A. Pinkney & family.
"Having just returned from Rhodes we wanted to drop you a line to say what a fantastic holiday we had. Your villa and gardens are beautiful, extremely comfortable and well equipped. Definitely the best we have stayed in & we hope to return again next year. Many Thanks"
"We had a really great time in Rhodes (our first visit) and particularly around Lindos which we thought was a magical place. We now understand why you have your villa there and are seriously considering returning next year. The villa certainly lived up to our expectations - it was extremely well equipped, in an ideal location, and very well maintained. We had no trouble finding our way with your instructions and everything worked out first class, including the weather! We have had several villa holidays recently and all four of us agreed this was the best."
"The villa was amazing. It was even better than your pictures. Lots of space. Really enjoyed sitting out under the canopy. The pool was wonderful - we used it every day. The location is great for getting anywhere on the island & we couldn't have asked for a better villa. Thank you very much for sharing it with us."
Van Der Boom family. Ontario.
"The villa proved to be exactly what we wanted for this holiday. We were determined to live without a hire car and this proved quite possible given the proximity of a well stocked supermarket and restaurants within walking distance by the beach or a short taxi journey away.
The villa itself was superb. Almost every holiday we have taken has been villa based, but this was one of the best. Clean, modern, well stocked and air-conditioned, together with a beautiful pool. The addition of a wireless router was also invaluable for keeping in touch with events at home. We were also impressed by the thought given to a supply of DVDs and CDs for all the family – a really nice touch.
The villa management team were so helpful and pleasant. Their advice and guidance helped us save time and energy when we had plans for the coming days.
All in all a great experience. Many thanks"
G. Morris. Wales.
"Your villa was as beautiful as it looked on the internet! The swimming pool was the best we had ever had & we have been going on villa holidays for the last 14 years! Both the pool & the villa were spotlessly clean and the gardens were lovely! The villa was in a great position with a great supermarket only a 5 minute walk. It was so hot that we didnt bother to hire a car, but we could walk down to the beach & used local taxis to get to nearby Lindos & St Pauls Bay, so didnt really need one.
We have had a fab time & wouldnt hesitate to recommend your villa to everyone! We have had a wonderful holiday & would love to return"
J Mosley & family. Yorkshire.
"We have had the most fantastic week at your villa and will definitely be returning. This was one of our best holidays for a long time, the villa is perfect, stylish and very well equipped as well as really well located. We want to return as there’s so much we didn’t see. The villa was so wonderful and relaxing we didn’t feel the need to go exploring every day and spent quite a lot of time lazing around the pool and relaxing.
St Paul’s Bay was our favourite location, fabulous for our 3 year old, warm safe beach and plenty for my husband (who’s not really a beach lover) to do, snorkelling was great and fishing and crabbing from the rocks was fun too.
This was a really good value for money holiday and we can’t recommend your villa highly enough. If this villa is on your shortlist (I had around 5 that I was trying to decide between) just book it, you will not be disappointed I guarantee."
Kate Fox and family. Devon.
"We just wanted to say thanks for letting us share your villa. We had a lovely holiday and thought the villa was the nicest we had ever stayed in"
"We really think your rental villa is wonderful and thoughtfully presented"
The Evangelou family. Chicago US.
"On our return home, writing to you was top of my list....
We really enjoyed our time in the villa, everything was just perfect including the weather. You have a very nice home & gardens. We will certainly recommend it to our friends here in Athens!"
The Lebouteiller family.
"Just a short note to say thank you so much for sharing your fabulous home in Lindos. The villa was amazing, everything and more we could have hoped for. We had a wonderful stay and the weather was lovely.
We would very much like to return next year, perhaps for 2 weeks!!"
The Cutler family.
"The Villa was lovely. We have stayed in lots and Venus has to be one of the best .... thank-you"
"This email is just to let you and your wife know how much we all enjoyed our weeks holiday in Lindos. The Villa was out of this world, sitting by the swimming pool I felt like I was in a spread in OK magazine!! We had a wonderful time at the wedding we attended and a wonderful time in the villa. I would love to come back to Lindos, so in a year or so, I could be emailing you again about its availability. This was just to say thank you, it was a holiday of a life time"
The Duffy family & friends.
