Description from owner
The Villa is perched gracefully on a gentle hillside with sweeping panoramic views overlooking Gennadi Bay, arguably the most scenic bay in Rhodes, proudly holding a blue flag award.
It's 0.5Km away from Gennadi sea front which has good quality traditional tavernas, ideal for a tasty local meal or a refreshing drink. Gennadi village is 0.5Km away providing excellent eateries, we recommend 'Mama's Kitchen' with it's fresh local fayre, attractive garden and friendly staff! There is also a small supermarket, traditional bakery with fresh product daily, pharmacy and greengrocers. It is possible to walk to both seafront and village, but a car is recommended due to the climate!
Lindos with it's Ancient Acropolis and charming cobbled white washed streets is an experience not to be missed! With a white sandy bay and many delightful bars and taverns to choose from, it is well worth a visit.
Kiotari is 7 minutes away to the North with lovely sandy beaches, glass-bottomed boats and 'chill-out' bars.
Prasonissi is 20 minutes away to the Southern most tip of the Island, this is where two seas meet and is a fantastic location for watersports!
The jewel in the crown has to be the Old Town of Rhodes which is 45 minutes to the North. A medieval walled town being arguably the best preserved in Europe and is Nesco protected. The town is bursting with differing cultural influences from Ancient Greek civilization through to Byzantine, Christian- The Knights of St John, Turkish and Venetian to name a few. The pretty cobbled streets offer an eclectic mix of tavernas, bars, interesting shops (selling everything from unique jewellery to leather shoes and goods) and historical buildings/monuments.
Discounts may be available for late bookings - please contact Joy.
There is a £200 damage deposit which is payable before the start of the holiday and returnable on checking out.
A 25% deposit is required to secure the Villa.
Further details indoors
The living area is tastefully fitted, equipped with a comfortable double sofa bed, stylish coffee table, rustic wicker chair, and for additional storage, has an individual draw unit. Satellite TV is provided for entertainment, and wifi connection is available throughout. The patio doors open directly on to the poolside area, creating a greater sense of outdoor living, while providing uninterrupted sea views.
Kitchen and Dining Area
The kitchen is supplied with all the amenities expected on a self catering holiday – fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, toaster and kettle - for those nights not spent barbequing or dining in one of Rhodes' many reputed tavernas. The kitchen leads on to the dining area and the indoor table and chairs which are ideally placed for looking out through the patio doors onto the pool.
Upstairs, the glorious views continue. The double bedroom is finished to a high and contemporary standard, complete with comfortable double bed, spacious fitted wardrobes and a pair of bedside tables with lamps. The main bedroom leads directly on to the upstairs sun terrace, the perfect vantage point for views of Gennadi Bay, basked in sunshine throughout the day and a cooling respite by night. The second bedroom is fitted with bunk beds and a large chest of drawers, providing ample storage.
There are two bathrooms within the villa. On the ground floor, a wash basin, mirrored cupboard, WC and shower unit. Upstairs, the main bathroom has both a bath and a shower, WC, mirrored wash basin and hairdryer/shaving socket.
Further details outdoors
This private location comes complete with all the outdoor essentials - dining table, sun loungers, padded deckchairs, parasol and barbeque, guests can sunbathe by day and dine alfresco by night. The upper veranda is extremely roomy and a great place to have an early morning coffee/early evening drink. The spacious outdoor and pergola areas make for the perfect setting for family barbeques whilst watching the sun drop gently over Gennadi Bay. There is adequate space for car parking. The stars are truly magical at this location in the evening, especially from the upper veranda.

“Lovely Villa, Great views & perfect outdoor & pool area”
Just home after two very peaceful, relaxing weeks in Villa Phoebe @ Pine View Villas. The villa we used in one of four each with there own private pool and outdoors space, no isolated but very private. The villa has every modern amenity (air con, dishwasher etc) and was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed several BBQ evenings whilst taking in the sea view and distance view of Lindos. Close to the villa is Gennadi village - it doesn't get more Greek than this, great local shops and restaurants. Alan, the pool and DIY person popped around a couple of time per week and was very friendly and helpful, especially with his knowledge of the local area. A car is essential as the villa is some way of the main road (1km aprox). Joy was also very helpful in supporting our booking. Highly recommended.
Response from the owner Thank you for leaving this lovely review and we are so pleased that you had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday in Villa Sophie. It will always be a pleasure to hear from you at anytime in the future if you fancy a get away! Kind regards, Joy and Kostas.
*Very nice Villa enjoyed our stay, pool and villa was clean, well run and maintained. just outside a small village that has a night life shops and the bakers is a must. not far from the beach witch is very good. wish we could have stayed longer.
Response from the owner Hi Jon and family, Thank you for your positive comments and I’m delighted you enjoyed your stay. It would be a pleasure to have you back as guests in the future. Kind regards, Joy.
“Relaxing stay with great views”
Villa Sophie in Gennadi is in a great location if you want peace and quiet and to get away from it all. Facilities are spot on, pool is fab and air con to keep you cool in the high temperatures during July! Joy the owner was extremely helpful from booking the villa, providing tons of info on places to visit, restaurants to eat in and also helping to book a car. Everything went very smoothly. Joy also emailed during our stay with further recommendations or just to see how we were getting on. People are very friendly in the village of Gennadi, food is great. The beach is a 5 min drive and you could literally be the only person there depending on what part you went to! I would recommend a car, the villa is in off the road and to walk from the village to the villa would be a bit long especially in the very warm temps in the summer, if you wanted to be within walking distance of the eateries then this may not suit you. Overall we had a great time!
Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely comments. It will always be a pleasure to have you as our guests. Kind regards, Joy.
We stayed in 2 units (phoebe & nicole). The units have all equipment you need for family with small children (dish washer, baby bed, baby chair, washing machine). The units were clean and in good condition. The pool is great and also the porch and the view is perfect (sea...) The units located up the hill isolated from other houses which allow us to have any mood we want, from totally silence to full volume music. Joy was on line for our request and also the handyman. The village Genady is 1 minute from the units, there you can find bakery, super and fruit/ veg store. Also in the village there are good restaurants (Nikos & Pamya was the best). we enjoyed all 7 nights, wish we could stay more..
Response from the owner Thank you for sending in your lovely review. You will always be welcome guests in the villas! Kind regards, Joy.
“Great place to stay”
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Sophie, and our contact with Joy by email and Costas in person. After 3 hectic weeks of travelling the villa was a haven. Gennadi is a lovely town, and the villa is well-located for exploration of the whole island.Our initial difficulty finding the villa and getting the key to work have probably already been fixed by updating instructions for future tenants.
Response from the owner Thank you for this Karen and Pat. Any time that you are in Southern Europe, please contact us, it would be lovely to hear from you. We've put a larger sign on the main road! Kind regards, Joy.
“Peaceful, private beautiful retreat”
We've just returned from a fabulous holiday at this villa. The villa is set back from the main road, far enough to enjoy the stunning views of the sea and mountains, great views from the balcony too, fantastic for star gazing! We found a hire car was neccessary to get the best from the holiday. The pool was a good size and kept v.clean, sunbeds v comfy which was important as this is where we spent most of the day! We also enjoyed a nice BBQ at the villa. The villa itself was clean, spacious, with comfortable beds and sofa, the kitchen was well equipped. Felt very cosy there! The area was traditionally greek not 'touristy' at all. Gennadi village has everything you need and the people are so friendly. The local beach was just breathtaking, pebbles are the new sand! It was deserted, clean with the clearest sea! There are so many pretty little tavernas to discover and enjoy all close by. As a young couple we wanted a bit of nightlife so Lindos( 20 min drive from the villa) was a perfect magical setting with bars( open late for dancing!) roof top restaurants and shops. A visit to Rhodes town is a must! ( 1 hr drive), steeped in history and comes to life as night falls! The owners of the villa were so helpful and made sure our stay was perfect in every way. Best holiday to date, thanks to them!
Response from the owner Hi Dulcie and Will, Thank you for this, it is a very uplifting review and so helpful to other potential holiday makers. Hope all is well. Kind regards, Joy and Kostas xx
