Just a short stroll from the crystal clear waters of the shoreline, this vacation home rental in Rhodes may be small but it creates a big impact.
A micro home designed by Mandalaki Studios, the house was conceived around exploring the intimate space of an individual in order to create the ideal getaway. The first of an architectural prototype for the company, the home exemplifies their vision of a return to basics, expanding on the foundations of a simple holiday home. A small but comfortable house with unusual dimensions, it was created as a place where design is used as a service to guests based on the philosophy of a livable and modular object that could be placed anywhere in the world and come to life.
Composed of concrete, marble and glass, the stark white palette and strategically placed windows accentuate the sensation of living in nature by blurring indoor and outdoor space.
Each piece of furniture is conceived and custom made to measure in a coherent partnership with the space, emphasizing functionality and simplicity.
The minimalist gardens incorporate the surrounding trees, keeping the spaces cool and relaxing during peak island weather.
Created as a concept that also gives back, the owners offer residencies to artists and designers to contribute and sell their creations, with all proceeds donated to support the Leonardo di Caprio Foundation, dedicated to the long term health and well being of all the Earth’s ecosystem and communities.
A getaway that celebrates an ideal synergy and harmony with nature while promoting the art of simplicity and artistic expression, this is one for your design bucket list!

Blessed with sunshine year round, the island of Rhodes is full of natural wonders and combines a sense of cosmopolitan flair along with a long history of rich culture and Greek tradition. The largest of the Dodecanese island chain, it’s well known for its ancient ruins, especially the acropolis at Lindo dating back to the the 6th century B.C. and for its remnants of occupation during the Crusades with the Palace of the Grand Masters dominating the city skyline. The UNESCO designated capital of Dodecanese is one of the most well preserved fortified medieval towns from the Byzantine era and, although a vibrant contemporary town, feels as if time has stood still.
The island is home to vast swaths of protected landscapes, natural springs and sparkling clear waters surrounding an endless choice of breathtaking beaches as well as neighboring islands to discover including Symi, Karpathos, Kalymnos and Kastelorizo.
