Guestbook comments from the manager

Stone Cottage Kos

We enjoyed this place for it suited our needs perfectly. We know Greece

well but had never visited Kos. The purpose of our trip was to see the

archaeology and do some walking. The best of the former is in the east

and the best of the latter is in the west. Stone Cottage is ideally

situated between the two and is but a short drive to the starting points

of both. The location has the added bonus of having some Caribbean

quality beaches ten minutes to the south and some pine clad mountains

ten minutes to the north. There is no shortage of things to do from this

base. We particularly enjoyed early evening strolls around the coastal

salt lake (which can be seen from the cottage) bird book in hand.

The cottage itself, although old, has been comprehensively modernised.

It has a pleasant garden, surrounded by farm fields on all sides, with

some good spots for sitting out reading or having evening retsina

overlooking the channel to Turkey a couple of kilometres away. It is but

a short step from kitchen to outside picnic benches and the impressive

bbq for eating al fresco. The kitchen and the bathroom are well

equipped. Everything we used worked fine but we did not try the

television/DVD or the a/c. The wifi sometimes involved a short

walkabout. We prepared our own meals (well stocked supermarkets and an

excellent bakery in the nearby village) but could see many restaurant

opportunities, especially along the coast, a short drive away.

Last but not least the owners live in a house located in the field

(vineyard) in front of the cottage. They are helpful and knowledgeable,

keen for you to enjoy the cottage, its facilities and your holiday.

complete relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks here at the stone cottage. Within half an hour of landing we arrived by taxi. It was far enough away from the main road to have peace and quiet but near enough to catch the local bus's. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need and is described accurately.Karen made us feel very welcome and was there to help find out information as needed to ensure we had a great time. It is located in an ideal place , only 10 minutes from Kos town by bus where there is much to see and do. There are a variety of boat trips to go on from there and many shops and taverna's .We did the three island tour on the Kristina boat and were very well looked after by the crew and as a bonus saw the dolphins swimming. We got around by foot, bus and the use of the bikes provided.There are two big supermarkets AB and Lidl both within a 15 minute walk. We walked up to Zia ,took about 100 minutes but was lovely to stop and just look at the beautiful views around and were then able to have a relaxing meal as olympia which is a great reataurant with views over the island. Both the food and service were excellent.

We really felt that we could just chill and relax here.

Thank you Karen for welcoming us to Kos and we look forward to visiting again. Trevor and Hayley

Our little greek adventure

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to add to the reviews of this place and its wonderful hosts. The cottage is simple and beautifully located. We stayed without a car so relied on the bicycles provided, shank's pony and the local bus service - all a little adventure, and when you have all the time in the world that is the fun.

I think Karen is right with how many you could accomodate here in the summer. We spent all of our time and evenings outside so the cottage really is for sleeping, preparing food and accomodating the corkscrew. Please use the local shops in the little town.

We will want to return.

perfect greek holiday

  • 5 of 5

this property was just perfect in everyway for our family 2 adults 3 kids .if you want the quieter side of greece then choose here,based in zipari you are away from the hussle and bussle of kos town but close enough for a quick drive in for food in the evening although we spent many evenings eating at the bungalow as the setting is perfect under the trees. which also has a great little tree house nestled in the leaves.also its close for all beaches as i felt we were mid island but having a car made all journeys easy with air con.the bungalow has many large stores nearby such as lidel and a and b but we found the little store in zipari much better as everything felt fresher with that little greek touch.the bungalow is perfect too for anyone who likes a hike as theres many montain tracks nearby or the beautifull village of zia where you can take the 2 hour hike up mount dikeos (its a tough one but our youngest is 13 and she made it just) or just take in the amazing views with excellent nic nac shopping and great greek food on rooftop tavernas.we mostly travelled up to kefelos beaches and in the car probably took about 25 mins but tingagki beach is much closer 5 mins in car or use the bikes that were at the bungalow.having been to kos many times this is by far the best accomadation i have stayed in the kitcken was fully equiped with a cooker,fridge freezer,toaster, filter coffee maker everything you need to knock up that traditional greek evening under the stars and the lounge had tv with dvd player.the owners karen and costas were everything you could ask for and if you needed anything they would sort it. also they kindly bring fresh salad etc from their garden and vineyard whenever in season.the property was spotless and very well maintained, if in this review i was asked to find a fault really there are none its just perfect i would certainly recommend this property and will certainly be going again.but once this little gem of greece gets known about its gonna be book early time. thanks karen and costas and thanks home and away.

Excellent location, spacious cottage,lovely people

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the stone cottage. It was well situated close to Kos town but also near lovely sandy beaches and the smaller villages for Tigaki and Mastahari, both of which had some very good restaurants.

The cottage offered all you could need on holiday and it was lovely to breakfast outside in the early morning sunshine with a view of the sea and the Turkish mainland.

Karen and Kostas were delightful, so friendly and welcoming when we arrived and we left regarding them as our friends.

lovely cottage in a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely holiday in a beautiful serene peaceful location where the only disturbance were the cows and sheep mooing. The description was accurate, the house immaculately clean, and well provisioned for a family of 6, with small children. Our kids enjoyed the tree house which was the hot point of the holiday, we enjoyed Kos town by night, the sightseeing, the off-the-track places, the local cuisine, and the stupendous weather: really lovely, warm and breezy! All in all a wonderful holiday - we will come back!

The Stone Cottage is situated 10 minutes from Kos Town ( by car) in the countryside area of Messaria and 2km from the nearest resort of Tigaki. Tigaki has one of the best sandy beaches on the island and offers a wide range of water sports.

There are two large supermarkets within walking distance. There is a bus service which passes from the bottom of the road to Kos Town to see the many historical sites. Or you can go in the other direction to the other villages on the island.

The view from the front of the property is looking over the owner's vineyard to the Aegean Sea with Kalymnos, Pserimos and Turkey in the distance. The view to the back is of Mount Dikeos (the only mountain on the island) which is 830 m.

There is an abundance of grapes and figs available from July onwards in the garden.

The owner's lives 80 metres from the property and are available for any help you may need.
