The Tower House was built for happy gatherings
That’s why it is perfect for your special holiday
Because this villa is so large, it is ideal for multi-generational holidays, celebrations and group holidays. Groups of families, friends, wedding guests, interest groups. church groups and retreats choose it because of the quality, size and location of the villa.
If you are looking to have some time away with friends, or are part of a walking, cycling, painting, creative writing or photography group (to name just a few!) then this is perfect for you.
The villa is just a 15 minute drive from Kos International Airport. It sits on a hillside above Kamari Bay on the South West coast of the island, near the village of Kefalos.
What is the Villa like?
The Tower House is unique and is not your usual Greek “sugar cube”. It looks like a cluster of traditional Greek buildings, including a windmill tower, a bell tower and 2 churches.
The villa has 7 large bedrooms; each one has its own en-suite, air-conditioning and private balcony with uninterrupted sea view.
The House stands in 3.5 acres of private grounds. Therefore, you will find it quiet and peaceful here. If you enjoy stunning, panoramic views you will not be disappointed – we think we have the best views on the island! Every window at The Tower House looks out over Kamari Bay where you can watch the boats and windsurfers catching the wind.
Everyone will enjoy using the large private swimming pool because it is large (45m2), has plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas, as well as an amazing view.
Our prices are for self-catering, but we can arrange any format of catering that your group would like. Perhaps you would like a special celebratory Greek meal one evening during your stay, for instance. Or maybe you would like someone to cook for you everyday. The choice is yours. Just let us know what you’d like.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave/combi oven, 90cm gas oven and 5 burner hob, steamer, kettle, coffee percolator and fridge/freezer. You will also find all the cutlery, crockery, utensils and pans you need.
Transfers, Excursions and Car Hire
You can pick up a hire car easily at Kos International Airport where various international companies have desks. Or you can arrange a local car hire with Manolis Car Rental in Kefalos. They will arrange free airport pick-up and drop-off for Tower House guests.
It is not easy organising a group holiday…
…but your effort is rewarded because there is nothing better than spending time with those you love. I have no doubt that you will really enjoy your time together at The Tower House! It is a beautiful, private villa, set in 3.5 acres of grounds, designed with space and peace in mind.
Because The Tower House sits majestically on the hillside, you will enjoy the most wonderful panoramic sea views over Kamari Bay. The villa is perfect for a multi-generational family group holiday because it is so large. There is enough space get everyone together, yet you will always find a place of solitude when you need it.
If you belong to a hobby club and are looking for a holiday venue, The Tower House is ideal for you, too. Whatever your interest is – church, photography, walking, painting, creative writing, reading or yoga – you will find no shortage of inspiration here!
On the main floor you will find a very large lounge, with comfortable seating. You are very welcome to use the Smart TV and iPod docking station.
From here you can step into the large dining room, which in turn opens out onto the spacious terrace. This has stunning sea views and the sun all day long. Also on this floor are the kitchen, 5 of the 7 bedrooms and a library/seating area, so everything you need is on one level. The remaining 2 bedrooms are on the lower level. Likewise, these have the same dimensions and facilities as the rooms on the main floor.
The large kitchen is fully equipped with everything you should need. You will find a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave/combination oven, large gas oven (90cm) with electric grill and 5 gas burners. There is also plenty of china, glassware, cutlery, pots, pans and utensils. The provision of a washing machine and a drying line, means that you don’t have to bring ALL your clothes!
Mobility and Infants
We have designed The Tower House to make it easy for those with a disability to make the most of their stay.
There is a gentle slope up to the front door from the car park which provides access for wheelchairs or those who find the step difficult.
The first bedroom and en-suite off the living room is slightly larger than the other bedrooms. The shower area has non-slip tiles, a shower mat and a grab rail (as do all the en-suties). NB: there is a 3″ step-over wall into the shower area.
The living room, dining room, kitchen, terrace, library/games area and 5 of the bedrooms are on this main floor. Access to the garden and pool area does not involve any steps.
A couple of high chairs and two travel cots are available if you need them. We also have a bottle steriliser and baby food blender available for you to use. Please bring your own cot bedding for hygiene reasons.
The villa is an easy 15 minute drive from Kos Airport and we will give you full instructions to find it. It sits on a hillside 800 metres from the sea and about 3km from the nearest village of Kefalos. Because of being on a hill, you will love the spectacular, uninterrupted sea views.
Walking down to the beach takes about 10-15 minutes, but it is an uphill stroll coming back! The Kefalos area has something to please everyone in your group. For instance, water sports, boat trips, excursions and walks are very popular. Or for those less energetic, a variety of shops and excellent restaurants and bars line the sea shore.
Many guests say that The Tower House has the best location on the island – and we agree with them!
Whatever you are interested in, you will find something to enjoy during your stay on Kos.
If you love the water, you will love the great choice of beautiful beaches. Those on the south side are crystal clear and clean. Kamari Bay, Paradise Beach, Camel, Markos, Sunny and Magic Beaches all have beautiful soft sand, sunbeds for hire and tavernas nearby for refreshments. These beaches are also great for snorkelling and watersports (jet ski, parascending, ringos, water skiing etc). The beaches on the north coast are generally shallower and therefore slightly warmer. However, they face the prevailing north wind and therefore have some seaweed.
There are 2 fantastic Waterparks on the island with a wide range of slides. There are rides suitable for those who prefer a gentle thrill and those who like to ride on adrenalin!

For The Tower House, the charge is €0,50 per room per night. For instance, if you are a party of 10 staying for 7 nights and using 5 bedrooms, your charge will be €0,50 x 5 x 7 = €17,50.

Hello! Let us introduce ourselves
We are Roger and Felicity Carver. If you are going to trust your special holiday with us, you’d probably like to know a little about us. Some years ago we managed an all-inclusive hotel in Kos for a UK tour operator. We got to know the island and its people pretty well. Because of our love for the island we decided to build a place of our own. We were fortunate to buy a piece of land that has the most amazing view.
An architect took our ideas for an unusual building and so The Tower House was born. We spent the next 18 months learning lots of new trades because we did most of the work ourselves. As we have experience in the travel and hospitality industries, we knew what would be needed to ensure guests had space and comfort. We are delighted to share our piece of paradise with you and we hope you will love it as much as we do!
Felicity deals with all the marketing, bookings and communications, and looks forward to hearing from you! Thank you for trusting us with your holiday – we aim to make it extra special for you!
