The apartment was well equipped and nicely decorated and very clean. It is situated on a road with steps without traffic. We had a great time and can't wait to go back again!

It is very modern and spacious and is equipped with everything that you could need. The master bedroom is spectacular but the other bedrooms are also very nice. Three excellent bathrooms, and a convenient bathroom and shower outside too. The owners were very welcoming and made our stay so comfortable. They helped us to arrange car hire from a local company (including an airport transfer), they gave us excellent recommendations of local places to visit and very very generous: there were lovely cakes when we arrived, basic supplies in the fridge, beautiful strawberries, oranges for juicing... We highly recommend this villa!

Very clean/new/well maintained. Pool and house cleaned every 4 days. Comfortable beds and a silend airco in every room. We had a very pleasant stay with our 17/19 year daughters. Little town is 2 min by car and has supermarket and plenty top restaurants. Tip: for nice sunset go to the Bunga Bunga bar/restaurant on the beach dir. Matala (10 min by car) We would highly recomment this property
