About The Owner

We had been visiting the Island of Skiathos for 8 years when in June 2011 we stumbled across a cosy traditional Villa that was run down and in desperate need of repair. The gardens were so overgrown you could barely see the rooftop. Nevertheless, we instantly fell in love with it and immediately put in an offer. Since then, we have lovingly renovated the Villa and its grounds and truly hope all our guests enjoy the Villa has much as we do. Although currently based in the UK our 5 year plan is to achieve a better work/life balance by living in Skiathos for 6 months of the year. We have been fortunate to travel to many places over the years but there is something truly magical about Skiathos & the Skiathans that is difficult to put into words. We hope you experience the magic like we do!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2011

Why The Owner chose Skiathos

The Villa is centrally located in the highly desirable area of Megali Ammos where we have stayed on many occasions so to find a place of our own is a dream come true. The Villa is a stones throw away from the beach and a stroll into the Centre of Skiathos, which is so convenient particularly in the evenings. Set back from the main road and close to bus stop 5 you really don't need to worry about transport although, to explore and truly experience the magic of the Island a car (even for a day or two) is highly recommended.

What makes this villa unique

Location, Location, Location

Oh, the outside space is also fantastic. It's not often you find a property so close to all amenities with such large gardens, a sun terrace, a courtyard and car parking space.

FREE Wi Fi is available throughout the Villa

Lovely villa, great location, everything within easy walking distance.

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you need and is spotless, comfortable and has a beautiful garden. Beverley and Keven the owners are fabulous hosts too. A great beach is 3 mins walk and Skiathos town is only 10mins walk, where there's lovely restaurants, shops and bars. We hired quad bikes to explore the island and this is a must. Great beaches and spectacular scenery. Busy roads in the town though, so drive carefully!

A Perfect Base from which to enjoy Skiathos.

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is a perfect place for up to four people to stay and enjoy this beautiful island. The Villa is very well presented spotlessly clean and very comfortable .The extensive and well manicured grounds are an added bonus and provide a perfect facility for eating resting and enjoying some privacy .The location of the property is excellent . Across the road and down a lane to the Megalli Ammos beach and a ten to fifteen minute stroll into the centre of Skiathos town .The owners Beverley and Keven are extremely welcoming and friendly and very attentive to guests requests.They clearly take pride in maintaining the the premises to a high standard for the comfort of their guests. In particular the airport pick up and drop off service they offer in the price is a huge plus..It was always a pleasure to return to this Villa after a day on the beach or an evening in the town and we would have no hesitation in advising family and friends to stay at this Villa in the future.

Exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

Villa and gardens were very clean and tidy and the service from the lady who looked after the place was excellent.

Although near the road this did not bother us as the location was great, just minutes from the lovely beaches and tavernas

as well as the town itself, no need for taxi or bus.

The use of the hotel pool and pool bar next door is an added bonus, we were always made to feel welcome.

We would definitely use the villa again.

Some lovely tavernas on the beach, our favourite being the Swell Bar.

For live music try The Blind Dog.

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

A lovely villa with fantastic outdoor space. Ideally located for the beach, town and local amenities. Whilst situated just off the main road, the traffic noise did not cause us any problems. We would definitely like to return in the future.
