About Alan Johnson
I am an architect who runs a practice in the UK but has also renovated a series of houses over the years for our family. Having spent many holidays visiting the Greek islands, our ambition has always been to one day have a holiday home in Greece, so the first stage was to find a property near our favourite resort of Lindos, which luckily we did in 2007.
Alan Johnson purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Alan Johnson chose Lindos
We viewed Villa Dimitra when the construction had only just started in 2007, however, we were immediately taken by its position, having fantastic views overlooking Vlicha Bay to the east and the mountains to the west. The modern style of the property an open plan format were also exactly what we were looking for.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Dimitra is part of an exclusive group of 8 no villas overlooking Vlicha Bay. The property benefits from fantastic all round views with the outdoor spaces enjoying all day long sunlight. In addition, the villa's location is ideally situated only 5 mins drive from Lindos, and 5 mins walk to either the supermarket or the beach.
Check-in: 4:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Villa was located at the top of the bay with a great view. Facilities in the property were good. It was nice to receive a welcome pack after a 6 hour delay to our flight. Alan was great at communication and quick to respond. Thanks to Alan for a late checkout.
Perfect for Families with young Children!
We have just returned from 10 days at the villa & every detail of the Villa & location was as we had expected based on reviews prior to our booking. The Pool area in particular is really where most of our stay was spent and offers a fantastic sea view along with the dining , outdoor lounge area that has the required shade from the heat & BBQ at the side of the Villa.
The pool was attended too & cleaned almost daily by the maintenance company as well.
Be careful if you have young children is my only feedback as the poolside & Villa floor is tiled throughout and we were constantly moping up water to ensure there were no accidents!
Upstairs the bedrooms are modern and comfortable, and the balcony offers an even better view of Vilicia bay once the sun is not so hot to sit our and enjoy an early evening drink!
Vilicia bay is a 10 minute walk down hill , but up hill is harder work with pushchairs tired children!
Lindos is a 5 minute cab ride @ around €10-15 dependent on the time of day or the driver :)
To summarize, great location (other than the return walk from the beach) , seamless communication & booking with Alan the owner , we would 100% book the Villa in the future!

Villa Dimitra July 2019
Easy booking experience, communication from owner superb, easy to follow directions from airport, went straight to the villa with no problems.
Villa was excellent, spacious, clean, light and airy, very modern.
Pool was fantastic with sun all day and was cleaned every two or three days.
Location was great with lots of local attractions and lovely restaurants.
(Lindos is fantastic).
Beach just down the road was good, lots of water sports if you like that sort of thing. Beach is made up of pebbles.
Overall thoroughly recommended 11/10
Many thanks for your very positive review.

Great villa, great location, great communication
The villa is lovely - large, quiet, absolutely super pool and within walking distance of supermarket and good position for Lindos and local beaches. Air con throughout worked really well. Communication with Alan quick, efficient and questions answered super quick.
We are really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Villa Dimitra and found all the local facilities really convenient.
We look forward to welcoming you and your party back again in the near future!

A beautiful villa set in beautiful location.
The moment we arrived at Villa Dimitra we were not disappointed. It was late in the evening so the provisions that were kindly supplied were a welcome relief and so thoughtful. My children couldn’t wait to dive into the beautifully lit pool.
The villa itself was spotlessly clean as too was the pool and patio area. The shaded area was a welcome relief to the midday sun.
The local supermarket is well stocked and so we made good use of the bbq.
Vlycha beach is only a 5 min drive down the hill and is a beautiful stoney beach which is very safe for the children. The water is beautiful and clear. If you can, hire a boat and go on an amazing tour of the beautiful coves and bays, drop anchor and snorkel, it’s incredible!
Would highly recommend this villa and hope to return soon. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
Hi Jackie and Rich,
We are really pleased to hear that you have had such a good holiday and enjoyed staying at Villa Dimitra. Vlycha Bay is also one of our favourite areas, since it never gets very busy and there are such a range of activities, served by good tavernas.
We look forward to having the opportunity of welcoming you all back in the near future!

Lovely villa, if you want a relaxing break away from it all then come here.
The villa was lovely and immaculate with all the mod cons. The pool was the best feature which overlooked the bay at Kaytholos and my teenage boys just spent hours swimming and relaxing giving my wife and I a well earned break. The owners left a very helpful booklet that gave you all you need to know about the local area and ate out in Lindos every night sampling different restaurants all of which were lovely. Water sports were done on the beach which is a 15 minute walk away and then a beer in the local taverna overlooking the beach. There is a local supermarket to the villa which is a 5 minute walk away from the villa and has everything you need. All in all a great holiday I would definitely go back and recommend this villa - although be warned the weather and humidity in Lindos in July and August is hot !!!
We are really pleased to hear that you all had a great holiday and enjoyed Villa Dimitra so much. Lindos is certainly a great place to eat out, but you would need a very long stay to get around all the restaurants! You are correct that it can get very hot during the main summer months, but at least at the villa you can either cool off in the pool or put the aircon on. We hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you all back in the near future!
Best Regards, Alan and Jacqui
Villa Dimitra is located 7 minutes by bus or taxi, from Lindos Village, which is a World Heritage site, with whitewashed buildings and narrow cobble streets packed with traditional tavernas, restaurants, shops and bars, many of which are roof top with stunning views. Here you will find cash points, local butchers and bakers.
There is a large supermarket on the main coast road approximately 500m from the villa, which has fresh bread daily, a butchers counter.They stock almost everything you might need. Further along the road there is a small village called Kalathos with has a baker, a chemist and the nearest petrol station.
Villa Dimitra is a great base to explore the island of Rhodes, with secret coves, beaches, mountain villages and historic Rhodes Town with amazing shopping. There are golf courses, a water park, snorkelling adventures and trips to nearby islands.
Couples worldwide choose to marry in a picturesque beach side church in St. Paul's Bay, which is just 10 minutes drive from the villa. What better place to honeymoon than in a romantic villa.
