“We had a relaxing and peaceful week here. It was very clean. It is situated in a quiet area but a short walk to the beach where there are a couple of tavernas. There is also a taverna just across the road and a supermarket close by as well. We had use of a nearby pool which was an added bonus as the pool is beautiful and the sun loungers are really comfortable. In fact, we were the only people at the pool some days. There is a bar at the pool and they serve food as well. Acharavi is the nearest town (a 30 minute walk or 5 minute drive) with a huge selection of bars, cafes, tavernas, shops and larger supermarkets without being a noisy tourist area. Olga is a really friendly and helpful host.”
The Maria Beach Studio at Acharavi Beach was a nice stay and a lovely bottle of local wine was gifted on arrival which was a nice touch. The oven needed a fix which EOS travel said they would get the landlord to fix when reported. I hadn’t initially realised it was through a tour company on Airbnb. Only downside was a very early checkout of 10am, particularly as our flight was late and we weren’t able to get a late check out. Upside is you can check in from 1pm. The big house which the studio is in has lots of other apartments and is next to a hotel but not too busy. The hotel does tend to blast out very loud pop randomly in the morning which kind of spoilt the otherwise peaceful atmosphere. Lovely sandy beach and good place to explore from by car, no loud cicadas like other parts of the island and really tasty, welcoming tavernas close by. Liberty’s was lovely, great value and family run. George’s the same, great food, but book first! Thanks for the nice stay.
