If you want total relaxation, and privacy this is the romantic, unplugged place for you!! Maria is so fun, and accomadating! She was so sweet to pick us up, wait for us to get groceries, and make us feel at home! We barely saw any other people on the beaches, cooked every night on the grill, walked to Homer's grave, and good God the stars!!! It was the trip of a life time! Thanks Maria!

Maria's place is the perfect location to spend peaceful time and discover Ios. This charming typical greek house offers an unique view on the see, far away from the big parties of Chora. Maria and her husband are very nice and helpfully.

Maria was a very gracious host. She picked us up from the port, took us to the market, and helped us rent a quad. Her place was very beautiful and peaceful. She helped us with anything we needed, even picked us back up and returned us to the port. Thank you so much Maria for such a fantastic stay in Ios!

If I had to describe my stay in Ios and at Maria's place in one word, I would have chosen the word magical. The house is comfortable and functional, well-equiped, beautifully decorated and cared by with love by Maria and her husband Petros. It is a place where you immediately feel welcomed, you feel at home. The views from the different terraces and the garden are breathtaking and the little extras, like the handmade tables, comfortable sitting areas, outdoor shower, hammock and sun chairs, make the time spent at the house really relaxing and idyllic. The surrounding area is a mixture of wonderful quiet beaches, rock formations and hills, perfect for those looking for tranquility and natural beauty. There is a little white church on a hill overlooking one of the beaches from where you can hear the bells of the mountain goats who are the only inhabitants of the area apart from the few occasional visitors. Seals live in the rocks just below the house and a friendly wild cat will keep you company, if you feed it. There are many great walks in the area and plenty of things to explore on the island. And if the description above has not convinced the reader that this place is a piece of paradise, I will tell you about the owners: lovely, warm, caring, fun couple raising their two daughters on this beautiful island. I went to Ios looking for solitude and did not think I will meet friends here, but people with hearts so big, and hospitality and generosity so genuine are rare to find. Thank you, Maria and Petros, for this magical week. I will be back very soon.
