The owners are extremely helpful and assisted us in communicating with tour companies, taxi services, restaurants.... They were very helpful. The apartments are perfect for a family of 4, split over 2 levels. We did not need...

Arrived very late and they totally cared for us. Room was beautiful, clean, great air conditioning and beyond our expectations. If you want to feel like you're in someone's home, this is the place to stay. From the breakfast to the decor, it's some place we'll return to again and again. Great location with highly attentive staff (family run and...

Beautiful rooms, nicely furnished with a Mediterranean feel. Great location, close to everything but not actually amongst all the crazy tourist stuff. The breakfasts were also a highlight - ample and delicious.

My wife often chastises me for finding subpar lodging in my ever-quest to find great quality at a fair price. This find, however, was perhaps my best yet.

Negatives: The beds can be hard for some people. Wifi was awkward to use as a password had to be reentered again and again.
