What Makes Us Special

What Makes Us Special

Each of our three lovingly restored apartments is a clever mixture of the contemporary alongside Hellenistic, Byzantine, Medieval and Ottoman styles that pay tribute to the UNESCO World Heritage Medieval city.

Perfect Location

Helios Garden is a fantastic opportunity to stay within the authentic surroundings of a walled medieval Old Town – whilst at the same time enjoying the peace, comfort and modern luxury within.

Everything you need

Inside each of the self catering holiday apartments the owners have crafted every detail to an exceptionally high standard that offers a stylish holiday retreat.

Excellent service

The personal touch. Your helpful and dedicated hosts Jay and Meike go beyond providing high standards and a warm welcome – they can help arrange car-hire, licensed tour guides for city-walks, excursions etc. Jay and Meike are local experts who live and breathe their town.

Sanctuary

The sanctuary of the lawned communal courtyard garden offers a surprisingly peaceful setting. Amongst an assortment of fruit trees, flowers, vegetables and herbs this space incorporates two breakfast areas, a raised sundeck, lounge area and barbecue facilities.

Cozy Seating Areas

The walls around the sumptious garden are contructed of traditional Rhodesian stones. The large garden harbours many different seating areas. So plenty of room to relax and enjoy your tranquil surroundings.

Within Walking Distance

Step straight into History

Being right in the midst of UNESCO World Heritage Site Rhodes Old Town, a lot of interesting activities and attractions are well within walking distance.
We have selected a few highlights for you:

Street of the Knights

This street is in the centre of the old town and is one of the most beautiful parts of the town. Walking on the old cobbles and stones make it easy to imagine that you could have gone back in time hundreds of years.
— 7 minute walk

Elli Beach

Elli is the main beach in Rhodes town and one of the most popular beaches on the entire island. The shingle and pebbly beach is about 400 metres long and 35 metres wide, running from Mandraki harbour to Rhodes Aquarium. The water is crystal clear and usually calm.
— 15 minute walk

Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes

The Palace is a ‘must see’ in Rhodes. This beautifully restored building has wonderful mosaic floors that have been brought in from the various churches. Many of the rooms are furnished with original 15th century furniture.
— 6 minute walk

Mandraki Harbour

According to the legend, it was here where the famous Colossus of Rhodes – a bronze statue of the Greek sun-god Helios, made of bronze and reaching 34 meters high – was raised. The harbor with its millionaires’ yachts, moored alongside quaint, old fishing boats is an unspoilt place, lined by seaside Cafes.
— 10 minute walk

Experience the Medieval Town

Surrounded by medieval walls, this old part of Rhodes is the location of many interesting attractions of historical significance. We are happy to arrange a guided tour to experience the town to it’s fullest.
— 0 minute walk

Archaeological Museum of Rhodes

The Archaeological Museum of Rhodes is housed in the medieval Hospital of the Knights Hospitaller Order of Saint John (1309-1522). The museum hosts many interesting side galleries off the inner courtyard housing archaeological exhibits found on Rhodes.
— 7 minute walk
