Overview

About the property

1 bedroom sleeps two close to the beach

A unique 1 bedroomed studio/apartment ideal for couples who want peace and quiet but who also want to be near to the beach. This studio/apartment is situated just 50 metres from the beach within the National Marine Park of Zakynthos.

Relaxing outside seating and dining area with a daybed and fan finished in traditional rustic Greek style and for that alfresco dining experience there is a fully equipped outside kitchen and BBQ.

This charming accommodation has everything you need for that relaxing holiday close to the beach.

100 metres away is a small complex with a pool & bar which is open to non residents serving drinks and snacks throughout the day, kayaks can also be rented here.

Several family run restaurants serving traditional Greek cuisine are all within walking distance. A local supermarket is located a few yards away where you will find local produce, fresh bread and refreshments.

Zakynthos,or Zante as it is more commonly know, is also known as the “Flower of the Orient” as its an island of exceptional beauty. The locals are renowned for their true Greek hospitality,which is why so many holidaymakers return to the island time and time again. Geographically the island is the most southern of the 6 Ionian Islands located off western mainland Greece and is approx 40km long & 17km wide. The island has a Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and wet warm winter, one of the reasons the island is very green and fertile. In the spring the island is covered in beautiful flowers, and the island is rich in vegetation including raisins, olives,vines and citrus fruits.

Crystal Beach in Kalamaki is a popular area with sunbeds and umbrellas available to hire on the beach. Take a stroll along Kalamaki Beach, in the summer months you will see the markers where loggerhead turtles have buried their eggs, you can even watch them swimming in the crystal clear waters.

Also provided:

Beach towels, beach mats and umbrellas plus a complimentary service wash as required.

Welcoming, quirky, restful.

Perfect little Greek cottage. Very comfortable, spotless, great hosts. Close to the beach and restaurants, but everything there to be at home if you want.

Cute, romantic, friendly

  • 5 of 5

Lovely welcome with some eggs, bread, fruit and wine, and later home made olives! Liz and Tassos are a very welcoming couple and Lis goes the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need. We've stayed in beautiful hotels in Santorini and Mykonos, but nothing beats having your own little romantic place, and its truely beautiful at night all lit up. Kalamaki itself is a lovely town and we have come away from this area feeling like this is by far the friendliest island in Greece! If you are looking for a relaxing, romantic, quirky place with friendly people then you must come here - the pictures really don't do it justice because you can't feel the character and the charm. Thank you Lis and Tassos for a lovely and much needed relaxing break - we need more hosts like you in this world! Xxx

Traditional Greece as we like it

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't imagine a better set-up, traditional Greek accommodation, very well managed and so close to the sea. Definitely a paradise holiday destination. Terrific support from Liz and Tasos that couldn't be bettered.

Quiet, tucked away gem!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is an amazing indoor/outdoor gem tucked away in a very quiet corner of Kalamaki on Zakynthos. My husband and I were on island from the states for my nephew's wedding and this location was the perfect "home base" for us. It's just feet from the sea at Kalamaki beach, there is a very handy market right around the corner, and a taverna for a quick bite, too. The apartment itself is lovely, and was well stocked with everything we needed. The owners, Lis and Tasos, are the kindest and most accommodating people you can imagine---they made our trip so easy for us. Lis stocked the refrigerator with everything we could need, too---I'm just kicking myself, though, that I forgot to taste her olives! The garden is beautiful, too! Oh---and if Lis happens to cook a pot of ratatouille while you're there, try to get a bowl---it's delicious!

Rustic perfection

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from two weeks on this wonderful island. Everything about our stay was perfect. Lis and Tassos have furnished this little piece of paradise to perfection and were the perfect hosts. After two weeks we were still finding small idiosyncratic bits and pieces hidden in the garden or inside the apartment - much of which were made by Tassos. The beach was a mere stone's throw from us, and Kalamaki had everything you could possibly want for - not overly touristy but with plenty to do if you wanted it. The restaurants and bars were all very good quality and value - the local Zakynthian wine was great and ridiculously cheap. Our favourite restaurants were Zepo's which was just round the corner with swallows nesting in the eaves above our table, and Essence (a little pricier but well worth it). The Cave bar is not to be missed at sunset (or any time) as is Mojito's in the centre of the town. We hired a car for four days and discovered a number beautiful places across the island. In short, this is a special place to stay and we can't recommend it enough and can't wait to return.

Delightful Greek studio with oodles of charm and character -- Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property are a true reflection of this wonderful hideaway, with real Greek character. The 25 other reviews of this unique retreat say it all--charming, lovely, clean, spacious, large open plan sitting/dining area looking out on courtyard dotted with all kinds of plants in pots and beyond that the open plan, covered kitchen with everything you need.

We found the fridge stocked with some lovely Greek goodies to start us off. With the supermarket just a stone's throw away it was really easy to pop in to stock up supplies. Zakanthi (now no longer run by Tassos and Liz) and Essence were our two favourite restaurants, all within walking distance. In fact, everything is in walking distance! However, we did hire a jeep to drive around the island and discovered stunning views and beautiful olive orchards. The Vasilikos area has nice beaches and Keri and Marathia are sweet little places to visit (and eat). Liz and Tassos were lovely, friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Liz for picking us up and dropping us off at the airport and for all your help in making this a very memorable, wonderful holiday for us.

We do hope to come back one day for a longer stay as your studio has been an exceptionally special place for us to stay. We would definitely recommend this little gem to anyone looking for something unique, charming, with a real soul.
