We stayed for 3 nights at this unique and breath-taking spot in Ios. Maria was an excellent host, she organised a cheap car for us to rent before we arrived, and met us at the port. She showed us to the house, stopping at places of interest along the way. She gave a great introduction to the house and made us a beautiful cake as a welcome present. The house itself was perfect for us, the balcony was the best spot, from there you could see the sunrise and sunset, as well as other islands and of course the beautiful Aegean sea. There were many secluded beaches nearby, and Maria lent us snorkelling equipment to explore local coves. We really had a great experience - location excellent (with a car) and Maria was a superb host. Hope to meet you in Ios again!
Maria met us at the ferry and had already booked a car for us which was really helpful.
The house is a simple holiday cottage but as it is Maria's own cottage it is equipped with all essentials you need for the stay and to cook for yourself.
Its location is remote, which is what attracted us to it, and once you are there you are pretty much all alone bar the occasional person passing to go to the beach. Yet it is only 10 minutes from a nearby restaurant and 20 minutes from the village for shopping.
All in all it is a wonderful location for a self catering holiday with lovely beaches nearby. And watching the dolphins and the seals from the balcony was a bonus.
exactly what we were looking for.. 5 days in this amazing beautiful wild place far from everything. the view is incredible, nobody to disturb you in front of the beautiful sea with a deserted beach just close by foot. the house is simple and clean as needed in this kind of place.. Maria is really nice, warm welcome, explanations and also a welcome cake made by herself... very nice..
This is an real experience I highly recomand. arnaud.
Lovely house in a quiet and peaceful place, far away from the busy buzz of Chora. Amazing views over the rocks! When the weather is clear you can see the other Islands. Unfortunately we did not see any seals, hope to see them on our next trip. Maria is a warm, lovely, relaxed and helpful person, happy and smiling. Clear in her communication. She picked us up from the ferry, helped us doing groceries for a couple of days and reserved an ATV for us. The house was very clean and well equipped. The toilet flush did not work very well, that is the only inconvenience we experienced.
I would surely recommend this accomodation to others and hope to stay here again someday!!
