The houses were very clean and nicely situated slightly off the beaten track. Unfortunately, the transfer from the port was not included, as the description implied. A car is very helpful and can be rented right at the port. However, the houses an be reached easily by bus, it should be on open street maps soon. The Church to which it is next is located at the GPS coordinates (phone number hidden).
The owner Irini is very nice and helpful. More pictures can be found under (website hidden). The owner has a very well trained dog that does not bark at all and is very pleasant. However, this can not be said about the neighbours dog;). We were travelling in a group of seven, so one of us had to sleep on the wooden couch which was not as comfortable as the other beds (this was not visible in the description).
