Greek Island Escape

This holiday is now not available however it will be back in 2021

A simply stunning 5-star hotel overlooking a private beach and surrounded by lush greenery, in an idyllic location on the sun-kissed Greek island of Rhodes. This is the perfect summer holiday destination for single parent families with children of all ages. This unique destination offers luxury, delicious cuisine, the chance to unwind in true laid-back Mediterranean style and enjoy the delights of the sparkling blue Aegean Sea, including some of the best watersports on the island.

Where We're Staying

It is also within a short distance of the island’s famous capital, Rhodes Town, and its UNESCO World Heritage listed Medieval Old Town.  Ixia offers the chance to enjoy the very best of the Greek lifestyle, scenery, cuisine and culture, and on our holiday – an extra taste of luxurious living too.

" It’s been a week of absolute bliss. The whole trip has been immaculately organised. Donna’s efforts on the ground have been fantastic especially in light of unpredictable coaches. Myself and my two boys have really enjoyed the hotel, the food has been yummy, the weather perfect and the group chemistry has all contributed to a very memorable holiday. As Arnie would say ‘I’ll be back!” "

Gill and Olivia 13 - (Rhodes 2018)

" We can’t thank you enough for ensuring that we all had a great time, we really did. It was reassuring to know that someone was there to support us and organise us and organise such amazing trips. Memories have most definitely been made. Thank you. "

Mike and James 9 - (Rhodes 2018)

" This was our first holiday with SWK and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Donna was amazing as she organised the family’s trips. I enjoyed all of them and would recommend these holidays to anyone. The food and customer service was great and the staff were lovely.

I liked it very much and would recommend SWK to any single parents who wishes to holiday. "

Mary, Phoebe 17 and Priscilla 15 - (Rhodes 2018)

" This was a totally amazing holiday. Brilliantly organised with so many activities to choose from. The boat trip was one of the best days of my life. Everyone was friendly and the kids got on so well making it all the more relaxing for the adults. The hotel was fantastic and the staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. "

Alison and Fraser 11 - (Rhodes 2018)

" Our third SWK holiday and definitely not our last. Rhodes has been fantastic. The hotel was excellent and the company superb. Many thanks to Donna for her excellent organisational skills. "

Byrony and Stephanie 11 - (Rhodes 2018)

" This was our second SWK holiday, so far as good as the first. Donna has been brilliant. Letting us know what’s on offer and generally looking after us. Best of all is the friends for both Stephanie and I. Really lovely to relax in great company. Thank you. "

Louise, Carys 11 and Max 8 - (Rhodes 2018)

" We are really enjoying our holiday so far. We enjoyed our trip to the waterpark and grateful for the coach that Donna organised. Donna has been a fantastic rep. Nothing is too much trouble and she has been helpful and kind when my little girl was unwell. I am writing this at a wonderful beach party. Looking forward to the next 7 nights. Thank you. "

Alison, Kieran 17, Caitlin 16 and Liam 12 - (Rhodes 2018)

" We all had a lovely holiday in Rhodes with SWK. Really good trips and lovely hotel and staff. Thanks to Donna for all the organising. We will definitely be holidaying with you again. "

Sarah, Dave 19 and Ellie 9 - (Rhodes 2018)

" Donna our coordinator is a fantastic lady. Very helpful and a fabulous fun personality. We are on our third SWK holiday and want to be a coordinator in the future. "

Felicia, Oscar 14 and Kofi 11 - (Rhodes 2018)

" We’ve had an amazing holiday. Initially I was very anxious, didn’t know what to expect holidaying with strangers. However, after 7 days and nights we have come to know some lovely, warm, friendly parents and children. I’m so pleased I stumbled across SWK and we will definitely holiday with the company again. Thanks Donna for organising day trips and taking away some of the holiday stresses. "

Jane and Liam 10 - (Rhodes 2018)

" I’ll really recommend SWK holidays to others. It’s been a great holiday. I’ve appreciated having the organising done for me and Donna has been a fantastic coordinator. The hotel was a really good choice. Very friendly, accommodating and good for children and lovely food. The choice of trips were great and they were well spaced out to allow time to just veg out in between. I also really liked the fact that I was free to opt in and opt out of trips/organised activities as I and the kids felt like it. A fantastic week "

Kira and Sam 10, Luke 6 - (Rhodes 2018)

" Another first timer with SWK. I have had many holidays with just my two boys and this is a far better alternative for them and me. There’s the obvious safety in numbers, the ease of organisation, ie you need not do it as Donna had the local knowledge and transport sorted, thanks Donna. The only times my kid’s meet others of a different age is with family. I’m not surprised at how friendly everyone is as you wouldn’t embark on such a break unless you felt chatting and making new friends. When other kids ask you to help with their goggles because mum has gone to the loo, you know it’s working and why I chose SWK. "

Leslie and Fiona 13 - (Rhodes 2018)

" This is our first SWK holiday and it’s been fantastic. Donna is a brilliant host making sure everyone’s needs were met. The children have made some great friends, as have I. We enjoyed our day at the waterpark. I would certainly recommend SWK to others. "

Nick and Lydia 6 - (Rhodes 2018)

" We have again enjoyed the holiday. The hotel staff have been excellent and so has Donna. "

Nathalie, Capucine 15 and Raphael 8 - (Rhodes 2018)

" Our first holiday with SWK and the three of us have had an amazing time. Lovely to have Donna with us to organise events and help. A wonderful time for the three of us. "

Annette, Sophie 11 and Amy 7 - (Rhodes 2018)

" Our third SWK holiday and this holiday concept really works. My eldest daughter’s best day was the boat trip and jumping into the sea. My best was mum and daughter moment playing in the sea. My youngest daughter has loved every moment being on holiday with her best friend from last year’s SWK holiday. Donna is a really lovely person and a great coordinator. "

Fiona, Harriet 16 and Lottie 12 - (Rhodes 2018)

" First ever SWK holiday and it delivered everything I wanted and more. I made friends for life. The kids had a blast and most enjoyable holiday I’ve had in a year. "

Lisa, Aida 17 and Dominic 15 - (Rhodes 2018)

" This is our second holiday with SWK and the best so far. Donna has been great, organising trips and a wealth of knowledge. We particularly enjoyed the boat trip, swimming in the sea, lovely lunch and a complete chill out. The hotel staff were also brilliant, the food fabulous and the pools and spa were great. The SWK concept really works and my children now mid and late teens were able to do a bit more independently and get together with other older SWK children. I loved being able to meet up with other parents of an evening for a drink and chat. Many thanks Donna. "

Mikey and Hannah 10 - (Rhodes 2018)

" This was our first SWK trip and it has definitely met our expectations. It has had a brilliant balance between time with family and time with others in the group. We really enjoyed the waterpark and the boat trip and Donna was fantastic at arranging transport. The hotel is amazing and the staff are super friendly. It was amazing as my 10 year old could make friends her age to play with in the pool. Donna our rep was fantastic and no job was too big for her. I would recommend. "

Clare and Nathan 11 - (Rhodes 2018)

" Donna is amazing and has all the answers when they are needed. Greece is lush and the group is so friendly and accepting. Brilliant experience. "

Clive and Belle 14 - (Rhodes 2018)

" Another really good holiday with SWK, now our fifth. Really great coordinator. Lovely hotel and staff. Highly recommend. "

Dave & Claudia (Age 12) - (Rhodes 2017)

" This is my first SWK and definitely won’t be the last!!! Good crowd, kids, activities and all round success. Single with Kids is a MUST "

Frank & Jack (Age 10) - (Rhodes 2017)

" Had a fantastic time, company was great fun and have made some good friends, young and old. Amanda did a terrific job, will certainly use single with kids again. "

By Bethany (Age 7) (and Dad, Paul) - (Rhodes 2017)

" This was the best holiday ever! Whoop Whoop. BEST HOLIDAY!! "

Paul & Joanna 15 - (Rhodes 2015)

" Good size group so everyone stuck together. Location was excellent, Rhodes town was only 10 Euros cab ride away so easy to visit for a bit of ambience. Hotel sea veiws were stunning. "

Mark & Luna 9 - (Rhodes 2016)

" Why I would recommend it? For the people, the fact that the kids love it. It enables parents to have fun and have a relaxed time too. "

Jessica & Oliver 11 - (Rhodes 2016)

" the hotel was good, pools were safe, food good, all inclusive package good value for money. Our host Elaine was great, nothing was too much bother and she was completely on the ball.
