The villa has beautiful views looking towards both the hills and the sea. The whole family enjoyed using the private pool to cool off in and to play fun ball games in. The outdoor space was great,

We can't say enough about this little place! We stayed for five days. It has a relax, comfortable and peaceful feel. We felt settled in right away with the shaded patio, beautiful pool and the simplicity of the villa. The pool was nice to lay around in the morning before we drove to beaches or town. We had night swims, but the water was a little chilly. The kitchen had the essentials to make simple meals. The bed was comfortable. The property is off the main road a few blocks & is not in town, so a car is needed to get around. Beaches are nice and beautiful; there's a pebbly beach a few blocks away and sandy beaches are about 45 mins away by car. The villa got hot in the afternoon and at night, but Dionysus fixed the cooling unit as soon as we reported it & it was fine from there. The island has things to do, i.e., snorkeling, beaching, sailing, visiting Old Town and shops in town. Food in town is very good, Greek and other choices and we loved the Raki after each meal! Giorgia and Dionysus were wonderful hosts; they're very warm and nice people. They were attentive to our needs & explain where to find restaurants and things to do. They handed us the keys and gave us our privacy, but if we had questions, they were just a phone call away. They both speak English very well. We recommend this property to anyone who want a kick-back, peaceful and private time alone. Rob & Lynn
