The owner is a lovely lady. This review is not a criticism of her. We feel very misled by the photos and information on the tour operator's website (Ionian and Aegean Holidays). Based on these we were expecting a bright and spacious apartment with modern bathroom. This is sadly not what we got at all. The bedroom was so poky I had to walk sideways to get to my side of the bed. The bed was very hard; we don't mind a hard bed but this one was also lumpy and five days after returning home I still have a pain in my hip from not being able to get comfortable and possibly also the sideways walking. Bathroom was dated and poorly lit. Just one tiny window. No modern shower or basin as per the website photo, the shower was very small with an oldish looking curtain. My husband is 6ft 5 so he had very little room to manoeuvre. He commented the light was too dim to see to shave properly. The loo didn't flush very well so it began to smell and we ended up buying a toilet freshener to make it bearable. The only reasonably comfortable seats were outside on the terrace. The two sofas in the lounge were too hard and angular to sit in for long. The floor in the kitchen area wasn't particularly clean, especially beneath the fridge door. We were led to believe from the brochure on the website and in the apartment that there would be a washing machine but saw no sign of one. The apartments are fairly isolated. I suppose you could walk into Fiscardo or Maganos: some people seem to manage this but it's a long way and hilly. Really you need to drive to most places of interest. Positives were that the air con is in both rooms and works well and the view is great although we could only really see it properly from the door to the terrace or outside. We did talk to the Rep who would have been happy to move us but apparently everywhere was full. We love Fiskardo but wish we had stayed nearer to or in the village. We've since seen apartments and studios for rent in the village that would have cost us less. Some reviewers on here seem to have stayed in something similar to the standard we were expecting. Seems they were lucky. We are just disappointed.
