The apartment of Kathleen & Persi was beautifully furnished and the view is breathtaking. The communication with the owners was easy and fast. Every question was answered promptly and there is a very nice man who picked us up from where the bus stopped in the middle of the night. He helped us with other stuff such as ordering a taxi or turn on the heating on the air-conditioners. We were staying at the apartment for one week over new year (phone number hidden). If it is cold and windy outside it can get a bit chilly even with the heating on and sometimes the shower water was not perfectly warm. Even with these little problems I would recommend a stay during winter time at this apartment. The region is beautiful and in wintertime you have world heritage sites for yourself. If I come back to Saranda I will pick this apartment again for sure. It was a very pleasant stay.
We loved the design, the space and the views from the apartment. The apartment was attractively decorated and comfortable. A friendly family grocery store is ideally situated next door to the building. The host responded immediately to calls for help or advice.
The apartment block was quiet and the local area was generally peaceful. The apartment is 20 minutes from the beaches up a series of very steep steps or roads which is not ideal for children or the elderly but it does afford it great views over the town.
The apartment was beautiful - spacious, clean, well decorated - and everything worked well. The only annoying thing was that the internet didn't work. Kathleen and Persi were very helpful and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Sarande. And Albania is wonderful!
Persi was an excellent host, and the apartment was INCREDIBLE! So much nicer than I expected. Beautiful view from 2 balconies, and walkable to town. High quality amenities - appliances and decorations were beautiful. Our friends stayed at their other apartment at Mango Beach, and also had a wonderful experience. Thank you for having us! We were a group of friends from America,Ireland, the UK and Canade, and we loved our whole trip to Albania.
This apartment was actually even nicer than in the pictures! It was beautiful, light, and huge! The Panariti sisters, backed by their father, are fantastic hosts. The apartment was ready for guests with linens, towels, laundry soap, etc. The family oriented us to the area and even took us to lunch! Very sweet. Returning to the apartment after our adventures around the area was a welcome reprieve (as some of the surrounding area has the cosmetic difficulties associated with a state in transition, such as half finished buildings and trash), and I was glad to be staying in such a luxurious flat. With its location set on a hill overlooking the main strip of activity, it was quiet at night. Having a car at this apartment is necessary to get to dinner and the beaches and sites of the area.
Our hosts were available to give guidance on places to eat (which was extremely useful as their isn't much available on traditional sources like tripadvisor) and beaches to visit. They even contacted us before our arrival to let us know about potential traffic issues, which was very thoughtful of them. We recommend staying at this apartment, and working with these hosts!
