It was very well-equipped and tastefully decorated. We especially liked the Moroccan pieces having been there ourselves last year. The restaurant recommendations were excellent: we tried Flisvos, Agnanti and Plateia (twice). Unfortunately Anatoli in Skopelos was closed for the season. As for beaches, we visited Limnonari, Perivoliou, Stafylos and Milia but our favourite was Kastani. We enjoyed the pool, table tennis and pétanque as well. It's hard to think of any improvements you could make. Christos and his wife were very helpful. Thanks again, we would definitely like to return one day.

Everything was exactly as described on the website. The house was clean and spacious, set in a large private garden and not overlooked. The photos depicting it on the site are very accurate. The location itself was peaceful and private yet within easy reach of many beautiful beaches and local tavernas. We would recommend hiring a car to make the most of exploring the area. The house offered everything needed for a simple self catering holiday, together with good internet access. Despina, the owner, was very helpful and informative and there was excellent communication throughout. We would love to return again one day.

There were six of us in total (3 couples) and there was plenty of space inside and out. The place was very clean and had a modern look with open plan kitchen / dining area. Had beers and soft drinks in the fridge on arrival which I thought was a nice touch. Spent most evenings sitting outside in the BBQ area having our meals. Waking up to the amazing sunrise was the highlight. Oh and the views of the end of the runway was also a bonus watching the planes fly in and out. Ten minute drive into the port or half hour walk.
