House was ready for us and easy to find.
Please see my previous review!!
I almost hate to write this review as I don't want anyone else to find out about this hidden gem!!! My good friend and I had an amazing time on the small island of sifnos, the people, the food, the diving.. This is REAL Greece!
Christopher was an amazing host, corresponding to us with text and over email. He was very accommodating when we had to
Move our dates around, and then add on an extra night towards the end of our trip.
The house was just as it looks in the pictures.. A small walk down a dirt path and you find yourself on a cliff entirely surrounded by the Aegean. We slept with the windows open, always feeling safe and waking to the sound of the sea outside our door.
We became good friends with individuals on Kastro and throughout the island. After spending time in Santorini as well, we can say hands down Christophers house and sifnos are the perfect locations for individuals hoping to experience true greek island life.
Our only two problems had to do with the wifi and beds. When we booked our trip, we were told the house had wifi, but upon arrival there was none. We managed to befriend the owner of a set of apartments who gave us his password and set chairs for us outside his door in order to borrow the wifi. He even made us a home grown greek salad one night!! (This is only one of the many kind gestures the lovely people of sifnos bestowed upon us). As two working women from NYC this was a bit tough, but our kind friend didn't mind our company as we typed away in the evenings. In regards to the beds, they were traditional, hard single european beds. While most people may be able to tolerate them, it was a bit difficult on our backs for the 8 days. I also couldn't imagine being a couple..But- besides the beds everything else was incredible! We will hopefully return in the coming years and feel as though sifnos has become our refuge of choice.
Our stay at Kastro Villa was an extraordinary experience. The house itself is one of the best (if not the best) in Sifnos island. Chris was very helpful by providing us with detailed information about everything we wanted to know and Ms Koula the caretaker is simply a wonderful woman. I can not describe the feeling of sitting on that patio listening to the sound of the waves, feeling the light Aegean breeze and gazing at this breathtaking view. Such a heavenly place...
Wonderful place, welcoming, photogenic, amazing, inspiring, great, sublime. This unique place is wonderful and impressive.
It's a really nice house, very well located in Kastro. Koula the caretaker is a very kind and friendly person, she left the place in perfect conditions for me to enjoy it and was very flexible with the check out time, which helped me a lot. I would definitely go for it again if a need to rent a place in Sifnos! That was just perfect. The house (all rooms including bathroom and toilets) and all equipments (dishes, chairs, tables...) are exceptionally clean. Very comfortable place. Very good location. I recommend the place without any hesitation.
Merveilleux endroit, accueillant, photogénique, étonnant, inspirant, sublime. Cet endroit est magnifique est merveilleux.
C’est réellement une maison très agréable, très bien située à kastro. Koula, la gardienne est une très gentille personne. Elle a laissé l’endroit dans de parfaites conditions et c’était très flexible pour l’arrivée et le départ. Je reviendrai de sûr ici si je reviens à Sifnos. C’était juste parfait. La maison (Toutes les pièces y compris salle d’eau et toilettes) et tous les équipements (Vaisselles, chaises et tables…) sont exceptionnellement propres. Maison très confortable. Très bonne emplacement. Je recommende cette maison sans hésitation.
Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen sogar übertroffen : die Lage, die Terrasse und die Einrichtung sind wunderschön! Das Dorf absolut sehenswert und ein netter Strand.
Wir möchten gerne wiederkommen!
Probablement la plus belle vue de l'île depuis la terrasse!! Un vrai régal pour les yeux et l'esprit ! Pour ne rien gâcher Kastro est de loin le plus beau village de l'île et la plus belle plage Poulati est a moins d'1 km a pied ! La maison est authentique et parfaite pour une famille de 4
Les photos ne mentent pas. La maison (confortable) est à flanc de falaise. Une situation vraiment impressionnante et unique, en contrebas d'un village magnifique. Petits bémols: un quiproquo sur l'heure d'arrivée (propriétaire aux état-unis et Koula "caretaker" ne parle pas anglais) et maison très exposée au vent. Des détails au regard de ce lieu incroyable.
Christopher Keeley was very helpful and quick in answering to all our practical questions about arrival and stay.
The house is exactely as in the pictures. It is ideally situated, cozy and calm, very romantic in the middle of see and sky.
We are very very happy of our stay in Kastro village and in this house particularely. Highly recommended !!
We are a family of four with two children aged 8 and 13 and stayed at the house five days. We felt at home straight away, welcoming interior, kitchen has everything you need, toilet is basic, but you won't need more. The view is stunning and you can spend hours just looking at the sea and surroundings. Only thing missing was that wifi and television did not work, despite Christopher's efforts to help us over the mail. We had a very good stay and can recommend it to all, but disabled people as there is a rocky passage to the house and perhaps families with small children because of the terrace.
