I had a great time in Naxos and a comfortable stay at this property. I would definitely recommend it to others!
Great location. Accommodation and facilities were exactly what we wanted. Owner very friendly and helpful.
Perfect home for our first time in Naxos
This was our first visit to Naxos and also the first attempt at island hopping. The location was easy to find. A ten minute walk from the ferry with luggage was ok. Janine was on hand to welcome us. She showed us round the apartment and gave us a brief intro to Naxos.
Naxos is a very romantic island and we have fallen in love with it. We would recommend friends to stay here as it’s easy to find and the beach is 15 min walk.
My partner and I stayed here for three nights and it was perfect. We were steps away from the port and 15 minutes walk to the beach. It was quiet and calm at the apartment. We found it very clean, comfortable, and close to a grocery store. Janine was very hospitable and helpful. She recommended Irinas for dinner, and it was delicious! We would highly recommend staying here. Thank you, Janine!
Thank you for staying, it was a pleasure meeting you both!
Peaceful location, lovely studio, perfect host....
We thoroughly enjoyed our three weeks stay in this lovely studio. The location is perfect if you prefer a quiet location but close enough to the waterfront of Naxos, which is a ten minute walk away. There are two supermarkets and two bakeries just a few minutes walk from the studio. Also a lovely cafe - Aktaion, which serves great coffee, breakfasts and an amazing range of pastries. The outside area of the studio is perfect for relaxing in the sun. You couldn't wish for a more helpful host. Janine is really friendly and welcoming and provided us with a lot of information about the island. We would have no hesitation in unreservedly recommending this property.
Wonderful stay on Naxos
We stayed in the apartment for five nights. Janine was most helpful and welcoming. The apartment was well equipped, very clean and comfortable. We loved the courtyard where we ate all of our breakfasts. The ten minute walk down the hill into the old town was easy and scenic. Well within walking distance of everything we wanted - restaurants, markets, car rental. Our only suggestion would be a hand rail on the stairs from the bedroom down into the main room and bathroom. Thank you, Janine, for a wonderful stay. We would highly recommend this Naxos apartment.
Thank-you for your review and your positive comments and suggestions, I hope you had a wonderful time with your family, and I hope to see you in the future back in Naxos!
