Maria was amazing, welcoming us even at a late hour and on hand should we need anything. Only downside is if you have a car it's hard sometimes to park but it is free! Our view was exceptional and the village on the literal doorstep. Apartment fully double glazed with electric shutters and the air con the quietest I've ever know. I would highly recommend this apartment..... couldn't see a better location to spend our holiday. I would recommend a car as there are some beaches worth visiting just outside Agios Nickolas and a car makes life easier. Maia recommended a couple of restaurants which were great and you must visit George in his cocktail bar Chez George's for the best cocktails and service. All in all we had a nice holiday but we both agreed it was the apartment that made it so thank you Maria and homeaway

Such a beautiful apartment with a spectacular view of the coastline and the sea and a great view of both pools. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for ourselves and the bedroom had plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space for all 4 of us. The double bed and sofa bed were extremely comfortable and we made good use of the balcony too, really enjoying eating outside. Excellent air conditioning and we really appreciated the fan in the bedroom too. The staff in the resort were very friendly and helpful, always willing to give advice, weather forecasts and directions to the best beaches. The cafe on site was extremely convenient and served delicious breakfasts and great coffee. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return another time.
