We visited in September 2016 and had a fantastic stay. Marcos and Smaro were incredibly friendly and very helpful; they made us feel at home right away. The apartments are located in an excellent spot on the island, making it an ideal base for visiting a number of sites and different beaches. The children loved the baby pool. We really...

Great place, but not all the studios benefit from the wonderful view (if we did, I would have had a fifth star ;) Also the swimming pool is pretty cold as always in shadows and never warmed by the sun. The kitchen in the studio was missing some cooking tools as well. The owners are incredibly nice but we could...

A beautiful B&B with wonderful hosts who take extra care of you. I had issues with my rental car company and the hosts, Marco and Smaro, spent at least an hour on the phone to help me sort it out, successfully. They are very kind, sweet and helpful. Awesome villas--we stayed in the 2-story Alpha which has a balcony with...

Marko’s world reputation is not usurped. Smaro and he made our stay unforgettable and we will keep in mind a long time a charming host dinner with delicious Smaro’s moussaka, among the best ever eaten.

I stayed in Mourtzanakis Residence for 5 days, and this boutique hotel is just perfect. The bedroom is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped.

A friend and I stayed at the Mourtzanakis Residence for 6 days in August. It's a beautiful spot, only 10 minutes drive from highway but very peaceful with amazing views through the olive trees over the hills to the sea. The studio apartment we had was comfortable and private, with everything we needed. What makes this place perhaps stand out...
