The apartments are ideally situated for visiting the island. They are up from the beach which is great as it means you always have a gentle breeze blowing. The level of cleanliness is optimal. Everyday the rooms are thoroughly cleaned and every other day the sheets and towels are changed. Each room has a balcony, ours overlooked a grove of olive trees, from where you can watch swallows swooping over the pool and birds of prey circling overhead. It is wonderfully peaceful.
It is a short walk to the beach, and there is a close-by bus stop (#15) so you could manage without a car. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Skiathos town by bus. It costs 1.6 euro. However, at peak times of the day the bus gets extremely full and you may have to wait a while for one that has space for you. Having your own transport is probably a better option if you want to see the rest of the island.
The pool always has sun beds free and is big enough to swim in.
There is a little supermarket over the road and quite a few restaurants and tavernas within walking distance.
Soula and Christos are wonderful, they do more than their very best to make your stay comfortable, you could not wish for better hosts. They make you feel so welcome.
They also run a taverna in the evenings, typical home-made Greek food which is very reasonably priced.
The only negative aspect was the Wifi connection, but it would seem to be an island thing.
