Full of commodities and the best of views. Everything is close by and the bus stop is right in front of the house so you can go anywhere. It helps though if you rent a bike or an ATV in order to move around the island if you are bored to wait for the bus or if you don't have the energy to walk everywhere as there are many steps and uphills all around the island. There's a mini market very close to the house and his owner and family are very nice and accommodating. Beaches in the area are clean, quiet and have the best of waters. Spyros, our host was very accommodating, always reachable and helpful. Not only with matters of the house, but with his knowledge of the island. My family and me cannot recommend this property enough and can't wait to our next summer in Spetses!

The house is very nice, comfortable, clean and very well maintained. It has everything needed to make you happy. The beach or rather the rocks down at the end of the small path is not difficult to reach. We enjoyed the jakuzzi in the evenings. The place is very quite and the recharge of the batteries was complete. The views are magnificient from every part of the house and there are many small corners where you can isolate youself and relax. Pamela and Christos provided a lot of useful information on the area - shops, restaurants, places to visit, etc. and these served us a lot. Thank you for offering this piece of paradise and being always available for our questions.

We were contacted shortly before arrival with directions and tips for the local area and welcomed by Maria when we did get there, plus a hamper of local/traditional products. The kitchen is well stocked with almost everything you need (salt/pepper would be useful to avoid purchasing them for a week's stay!) and finished to a high standard with washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker etc. Knives were sharp and good for food preparation, not always the case in villas in our experience! The pool at the villa is great. A good size, warm and a very pleasant environment for kids and adults. It is shared with one other villa on the property, so not completely private, but not an issue in our experience. The views of the surrounding mountains are breathtaking! Inside, the house has large bedrooms, good bathrooms for each and effective air con inside when you wish to use it. Then there is the location, which is spot on. Closest supermarket is just a 10 min drive away. Pantazi is the local beach, 500m down the hill, and offers great swimming and a friendly cafe / taverna. We found Agios Nikolaos to be the nicest of the villages in the area with great tavernas and without the crowds of Stoupa or Kardamyli. Elli's is particularly recommended for fresh food and friendly service. Vesuvius had the best views and really helpful service. We explored a little from the house (Limeni close to Areopolis has lovely swimming and a good lunch!) but found loads to do in the area. The sandy (and busy) beach in Stoupa is well worth visiting, but our highlight was the rocky beach at Foneas between Stoupa and Kardamyli - great fun for the children and relatively free of the crowds. Overall, a really top class holiday villa and a lovely week in an amazing part of Greece. We would wholeheartedly recommend it!
