Linda and family are wonderful hosts. The house is on a bluff overlooking the harbor and far enough away from but not too far away from the hustle and bustle of the town for some quiet serenity at the end of the day. The house was wonderful, very nicely decorated and all the amenities you'll need to have a home away from home for your trip. I would recommend getting a car, scooter or quad to enjoy all the sites to see on Ios. It would also be helpful to have a few beach towels at the house should guests want to visit some of the incredibly wonderful beaches of Ios. Linda recommended several great spots and restaurants and none of them disappointed. Hopefully we can get back sometime soon!
