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
