About This Listing
Traditional house 50 sq.m. 150m from the beach with an extra 30 sq.m. terrace with sea view located in Kastraki, 17Klm from Naxos town. It consists of one big bedroom with double bed, living room with a double sofa bed and a single bed (extra beds if required), fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower and hot water and heating. Large garden with swings and parking space.
There are mini markets, taverns and bus station in walking distance.
Suitable for families, kite surfers and lovers.
The beach of Kastraki is located just after Sahara and is a beautiful golden sandy beach with crystalline waters.
This is a long, winding beach with lots of different bays. It is very unspoiled and surprisingly few people here. There is a slight wind but it doesn’t deter from a visit. There are interesting rock formations just out into the clear water.
I would be very happy to host you in my listing and make sure you have a great
holiday! Please feel free to contact me in case you have any questions about the
place or the area. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Mara's apartment was clean and in a beautiful, rustic town. The neighborhood is quaint and the beach is just a quick walk down the road. The apartment itself has plenty of room and a gorgeous balcony from which to have a glass of wine or watch the stars. Mara was also incredibly helpful in helping us rent the last automatic car on the island and we wouldn't have had the same vacation without her or her lovely place. Thanks so much!
The listing was accurate. The apartment was on the top floor with a separate entryway. The place was very clean and looked just like the pictures. The deck was really nice. I liked the location in that it was very close to a very nice beach but also somewhat rural. For example you could see goats and also fields and mountains in the background. This was the exact type of location we were looking for. There was also a very nice restaurant nearby (by car). The host was very kind of provide us with a baby bed/pack and play for our 10 month old baby.
We had an amazing time at Mara's place in Naxos. She was really attentive to our arrival and arranged us a taxi so we wouldn't have to struggle with directions to her place.
The place is in a great spot. It's about a five minute walk to a nice beach. There was a wonderful tavern and a market nearby. Everyone there was extremely nice. When we needed to go to town with short notice, they went to great lengths to help us get the bus, including driving us to the bus stop and calling the driver to make sure he hadn't already passed.
The apartment itself is great, huge and newly renovated. The deck is immense and a really nice place to hang out in the evenings. We tied up our camping hammock out there and it made it even better. There is usually a strong wind in Naxos in the summer, so air conditioning isn't usually necessary. The wind died down and it was a little hot one night, but when it came back the next day we were once again extremely comfortable. In general, Naxos was a great place to explore, especially with the scooter we rented.
We had a delightful time traveling in Naxos! Mara was a great host. She was always there to answer our questions and give us tips about things to do in the island. Kastraki is a nice and peaceful small village, ideal to relax! The beach was just 2 minutes away from the apartment and was very calm. The apartment was clean and comfortable! Hope we can go back there soon :-)
We have spent a very nice time in Naxos in Mara's house. The apartment is brand new, at the first floor of the familial house. Big living room with table, kitchen and sofa's/beds+ 1 bathroom and a bedroom. Huge terrace with a nice view on the sea.
Mara was very disposable for any question we had. Our son spelt a lot with the family childrens.
Yes I'd definitely recommend this place, and Naxos is a must see.
Mara is lovely and very helpful with suggestions about the local area and beaches. The photos of the apartment don't do it justice, the flat is clean and spacious and there's a fantastic rooftop with views of the sea and sunset. The bedroom can get quite hot as there's no aircon but we had the windows open and sometimes slept out on the balcony. The area is stunning and you have everything on your doorstep; mini market, beach bar and a fantastic taverna called kastraki paradise. There's also some nice places to eat in mikra vigla. The beaches round this area are beautiful especially aliko. Enjoy!
We stayed at Maras place in Naxos for two nights and we wish we spent more time there!!
Mara was very kind to help is arrange our rental needs upon arrival, and gave us great tips on exploring Naxos and discovering the best of Naxos.
Naxos is less touristy than Santorini, so its nice to have someone local to help you find your way around.
Her place was much nicer than the pictures. Everything looked new and worked well! She provided clean sheets and the place was clean. Note however, that its next to one of the top beaches in Naxos, so it gets a little sandy on windy days, just make sure to pull the screens down.
The neighborhood was also great, simple walk/drive away from the local market, and local tavern by the sea where entree prices were all under 10 euros.
There were no light pollution, so we were able to grab our blankets and lay on the beach at night to see stars we have never seen before.
As a note, if you plan on staying at Maras we recommend renting a car, as it is 25 minutes drive from the port. We were unable to get a car, so we cabbed there, and rented an ATV, we only explored the southern part of the island. If you plan on going around the island, a car is a much better idea.
Would return and recommend her place!
