Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Kalamaki - Crystal Beach Apartment

1 bedroom sleeps two close to the beach

A unique 1 bedroomed studio/apartment ideal for couples who want peace and quiet but who also want to be near to the beach. This studio/apartment is situated just 50 metres from the beach within the National Marine Park of Zakynthos.

Relaxing outside seating and dining area with a daybed and fan finished in traditional rustic Greek style and for that alfresco dining experience there is a fully equipped outside kitchen and BBQ.

This charming accommodation has everything you need for that relaxing holiday close to the beach.

100 metres away is a small complex with a pool & bar which is open to non residents serving drinks and snacks throughout the day, kayaks can also be rented here.

Several family run restaurants serving traditional Greek cuisine are all within walking distance. A local supermarket is located a few yards away where you will find local produce, fresh bread and refreshments.

Zakynthos,or Zante as it is more commonly know, is also known as the “Flower of the Orient” as its an island of exceptional beauty. The locals are renowned for their true Greek hospitality,which is why so many holidaymakers return to the island time and time again. Geographically the island is the most southern of the 6 Ionian Islands located off western mainland Greece and is approx 40km long & 17km wide. The island has a Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and wet warm winter, one of the reasons the island is very green and fertile. In the spring the island is covered in beautiful flowers, and the island is rich in vegetation including raisins, olives,vines and citrus fruits.

Crystal Beach in Kalamaki is a popular area with sunbeds and umbrellas available to hire on the beach. Take a stroll along Kalamaki Beach, in the summer months you will see the markers where loggerhead turtles have buried their eggs, you can even watch them swimming in the crystal clear waters.

Also provided:

Beach towels, beach mats and umbrellas plus a complimentary service wash as required.

After six visits to this beautiful island, we finally struck gold in finding this unique 'semi-bungalow' home.

The accommodation, is exactly as described, and more; what cannot be put into words, however, is the 'wow factor': its charm, which is a must to experience. Nestled at the end of the old road, and on the threshold of the 'horseshoe' that loops to the strip and all the way back, you have everything you wish for, right on your doorstep, and beyond.

We were transported the three short miles from the airport by our excellent host, Lis, to our accommodation which is equipped with everything that literally makes it a home away from home; not to mention our welcome pack.

We ate chez Lis and Tasos, or in one of the many restaurants. Our daytime favourites are Nostos, Stanis, Crystal Beach and Puzzle, all minutes away. The freedom, and joy, of 'brunching'; instead of jostling for pole position at a hotel toaster, at some unearthly hour in the morning, is second to none.

Both the privacy and spaciousness of the apartment is unrivalled by any other accommodation in the area, in our opinion. The beautiful, spacious garden area is perfect for sunbathing and the outside dining areas, offer welcome respite, relaxation, and refreshment, in the shade. A few steps away is your swimming pool - the sea, at Crystal Beach.

The sunshine and subsequent, ambient evening temperatures are what characterise Kalamaki's climate perfect for us. Sundown, time for dinner, after 9. Cocktails first, our favourites are the Oceanic on the old road, or Look Up on the strip. Then dinner at Michaelos, La Contessina, Zeppos, or Buon Amici. However, the jewel in the crown of Kalamaki's cuisine is Zakanthi, which is of course to be credited to Lis and Tasos.

Further afield, there are many little Greek Tavernas to be discovered, both inland and on the coast, as you explore the island by car; you can do a whistle stop tour in a day. The rainbow spectrum of the sea is breathtaking: teal turquoise, aquamarine, lazuli, azure, sapphire...

The sky at night in Kalamaki is also a sight to behold. Crystal Beach has to offer one of the most beautiful panoramas on the planet. Here, the moon mirrors the colours of the sea, in the night time sky: cyan cerulean, indigo; greatly enhanced by the lack of light pollution-merely the twinkling of the odd light, from the tavernas in the distance.

Kalamaki is busy enough to be interesting, but quiet enough to be a fantastic retreat.

Wonderful !!!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for one week in this beautiful studio. It was Easter and that is a quiet period there but a festive season for the locals. All the people that we met were so friendly, smiling and welcoming.
The property is very well located, close to the long and sandy beach, the villages and the main town. You can relax in the garden or visit this nice island and discover some amazing places ! Lis and Tassos, the fantastic owners, will always suggest you a brilliant road to take or spot to go to.
You have all the furniture that you need in the studio, the kitchen and the covert garden ;-). Everything is very clean and well-maintained. We were welcomed with a refreshing drink and even some food in the fridge. That was perfect !!! Lis and Tassos are there if you need something and we spent some really good time with them ! They are so kind and do their upmost best for you to feel on holidays.
We would certainly recommend this property to family, friends and relatives.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we certainly will come back ! We need to see the plants that we offered to Lis and Tassos for all what they have done for us (like picking up us at the airport). There are now 2 plants in the garden called Catherine and Marc. If you meet them, please give us our Belgian greetings ;-)
We got 5 stars holidays ! Kind regards and take care !

Still missing the whole experience of being in Kalamaki and staying at Lis's beautiful apartment. We returned here this September after our first visit in 2011 and although we missed seeing Lis this year, everything at the apartment was as it was before, very clean and welcoming. This delightful & unique accommodation, is so much more than a studio! Communications are very good with Lis, & any queries you may have are answered fully. The real charm here is the outside living space with a large patio/dining area & across the courtyard, a typical Greek outside kitchen (both covered) with everything you could need for this type of holiday.The whole accommodation, including the garden, has everything to ensure you have a very comfortable, peaceful, relaxing holiday.
A short walking distance to supermarkets, shops, many restaurants & best of all, so near the sea! Within Kalamaki there are some very nice walks & if you wish to explore further there is a bus stop nearby, which takes you into Zante town so you can explore further afield. I have no doubt whatsoever that we will return again to this idyllic spot!! Thank you Lis & Tasso for another memorable holiday.

Wunderful place and people

  • 5 out of 5
For us it was the first time at Liz' place and we enjoyed it from the first moment. Everything was organized perfectly. Tasso's restaurant is a must and just a few minutes away. The house itself is spacious, quiet and very clean. Everything is in best shape and you could see, that the owners really take care. Liz and Tassos helped us with hiring a boat to visit the scene around. Housesitter Gill took care about everything onsite. (Transfer from and to the airport in time, rent a scooter etc.) We vistited all the places around Greece starting 1983 and now, as the kids have grown up, it was our the first but not the last stay in Zante. Liz took care about all arrangements to celebrate my wifes 50th anniversary, and we enjoyed the surprise given at Tasso's restaurant very much. Nothing else to add. Wir kommen gerne wieder - Bis bald. Lo+Da aus Aalen.

really no regrets!!!

  • 5 out of 5
If you look for a real quiet and beautiful place near the beach, where you can stay the whole day or from where you can perfectly start to explore the island, where you find good restaurants....this is it!

We were having a great time. As it was really hot in july/august - we often stayed in the backyard, but this was what we needed. We also rented a car (100€ for 3 days) and explored almost the whole island. We don't recommend the boat trips, because they seem to kill or hurt sometimes the turtles, who are endangered. But boat trips were not necessary, because you find very beautiful places by car!!! For example at Korithi - you only need to drive until the end of the street and then walk down the stairs to jump in the clear blue water!
One of our best nights was at Louhà - next to the church is a nice little restaurant - very good food and so nice people!!!
At Kiliomenos we found one little store next to the crossroads in the center, which seemed also as one of the last typical stores and sold us very good olive oil, wine and more.
For the nights in Kalamaki...you really need to try the "Zakanthi" - Lis and Tassos restaurant - it was (except the "essence", which was very good aswell) the only really typical and lovely restaurant with very good food!
We haven't been before to Greece but are really happy having done that holiday! Thank you Lis and Tasso for this unique possibility.
As we never do the same holiday again...we probably don't see you, which is a pity, but we really recommend your appartment!!!!!
Please say hello to Gill, who was so nice and funny (picked us up from the airport and brought us back).
And thanks for the Ouzo, the bread, wine and Feta and son on, which was a perfect welcome pack!
Oh I want to say so much! I stop now....enjoy your time!!!!
Best wishes from Dresden, Germany!!!
Martin and Claudia
