The Smith's and the Preston's - 2 x couples (mid-50's) - we had a most enjoyable holiday although in mid August there were some days when it was very, very hot (over 40 degrees; our ladies enjoyed sunbathing from 7-30 a.m. to 10-30 a.m.!!!)
Anna very helpful in accommodating requests
Great location overlooking the bay (approx 1 mile away)
Car is very useful to access local facilities and other parts of the island; villa on hillside location and it's a little steep going back up! we ate at 3 of the 5 local restaurants (you can walk to all of them - up to 20-30 minutes away but remember it's up hill after crossing the main road for the last 400 metres - coming back! Rest is flat; all 3 restaurants produced excellent food.
Pool good and well-maintained
Some items missing were quickly replaced when Anna was made aware
Enjoy if you choose this villa, you won't be disappointed; would definitely recommend a car to get to some of the fabtastic beaches in the vicinity.
This was our first villa holiday and we were not dissapointed with the villa we chose. The villa is very well kept and contains everything that you need. We also found that it was bigger than we expected.
Anna finds nothing too much trouble, but at the same time never seems to disrupt your holiday. The villa is in a peaceful location, so spending time around the pool is great fun.
The welcome pack was VERY WELCOME.
We used a butcher in nearby Lardos to buy meat from to enjoy BBQ's on an evening. The BBQ area is very nice and gets the evening sun to enjoy relaxing whist eating and enjoying a cool beer or glass of wine.
I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to come to kalathos for a holiday.
An easily organised holiday, good communication via email with Anna and handover of keys for villa, which had been stocked with all the essentials (and some luxuries!). The villa was as described and Anna gave us a few pointers about places to visit, taxi driver to use etc. My only disappointment was the garden (huge but unfinished) but in no way did it detract from a lovely stay - and Anna did say to ignore the weeds!
My husband and I - in our 40s - spent an early easter holiday in April 2009 here. It was a wonderful experience. The house and garden is even more beautiful as shown on the pictures. Large garden, outside BBQ (though we didn't use it, evenings were still fresh in early April) - relaxing outside is just perfect; also due to the swimmingpool which Anna filled especially for us (though it was off-season). Very nice owners who live nearby. On a raining day Anna showed up with a heap of DVDs in case we would get bored by the rain. Very sweet. Fridge was filled with "first-aid-food-and-wine" when we arrived which was a relief for us after a long traveling day. Quiet and relaxed area - not so "touristy" I might say (though nearby Lindos is very crowded -even in off-season April), and there are people who live here all year long which makes the neighbourhood more "normal" - it is not a tourist enclave. Definitely we will come again!
