About Nick lake

We have been visiting Kos since 1984. After a year working here in 1989 we vowed to retire on the island.

It took us 5 years of searching to find the right property in the right location. When Villa Mouria came up we knew from the first visit that is was our future home.

We recently retired and stay at the house as much as we can , the addition of the pool and terrace has transformed it into a true villa.

We never tire of the sunsets, it's ideally located for the beach, the mountain and Kos town if that's your wish.

Nick lake purchased this cottage in 2005

Perfect location, traditional Greek villa with pool and spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely villa for 2 weeks in June. The outside areas are outstanding, we loved having the choice of several shaded or sunny areas to sit and chill out or to top the tan. Inside there are 2 bedrooms, the double has the air con unit in it. It is traditional in style with dark wood and tiled floors.

A car is included in this villa which is required for the location is near Pyli village which is up in the hillside about 10 mins drive from Zia (has restaurants with beautiful views and some of the best sunsets we have ever seen) 10/12 mins from Tigaki, 20 mins from Kos town and 20/25 mins from Kardamena over the mountain with fantastic views on the way.

Karen was our contact once booked and met us at the villa, she was very helpful and great to ask questions about Kos, she gave us her phone number should we need her.

We did a daytrip to Bodrum in Turkey from Kos town and also the Greek island of Nisyros from Kardamena to visit the volcano crater with steam vents and bubbling mud pools.

We highly recommend this villa it was a lovely lovely place to stay and relax.

"Perfect Place To Relax & Unwind"

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my wife and I to relax in the sun, far enough away from the local towns to give us some peace and quiet but close enough to pop down to the beach or shops (10 min drive) when we needed to stock up on supplies. Centrally located in a sleepy village where nothing much happened, but with a choice of 4 tavern's on hand we could stroll out to eat in the evening. The house is beautifully restored, spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished. There was loads of space for the 2 of us with a choice of 3 eating areas (1 inside and 2 outside). Pool area was spacious and totally private. We were greeted by the owner Nick who has a brilliant knowledge of the island and the best places and tavern's to visit.

A perfect welcome to a perfect holiday and we will be back !!!

Gemütliches Haus mit tollem Blick

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt auf Kos und im Ferienhaus.

Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, Internetverbindung war super, Erreichbarkeit von schönen Stränden (eher Richtung Kefalos, feiner Sandstrand und kaum oder keine Steine im Wasser) super, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ausreichend vorhanden. Wir hatten einen sehr schönen erholsamen Urlaub.

The kitchen is well equipped, internet connection was great, accessibility of beautiful beaches (more towards Kefalos, fine sandy beach and hardly or no stones in the water) great, shopping facilities available. We had a very nice relaxing holiday.“ Nick Lake

Bonne situation, au calme .voiture indispensable , très belle vue avec grande terrasse agréable .

Équipement de la cuisine un peu limité, location propre mais un peu poussiéreuse.Bon accueil de Karen.
