5 Star property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of the 2 identical villas located across a private road from the owners, around a 2 min drive from Sami.

You could walk into town if you wanted. It would be around a 20-30 min walk and you would need a torch at night.

The villas are down an approx 300 mtr private road. It's a quiet location.

The villas are modern solid stone construction and of a very high quality.

The owners Danny & Satu are lovely people and could not help enough, any problem or question was dealt with quickly.

We have stayed at a lot of villas over the years and these are the cleanest we've stayed at. The mid stay cleans are more than what most do for a new stay!

The villa has lots of space and although it doesn't have some of the splendid views of some of the more mountainous villas, the olive grove setting was very nice.

After touring a lot of the island, we found Sami, although not the prettiest of resorts, was still nice at night when it becomes pedestrianised and as more of a "working" town, it has more of what villa owners want, as in really good butchers, bakers, etc.

Back to the villa.....Good sunbeds, aircon, bbq, nicely shaded eating areas. Beds were comfy. Some english channels, although if you have young children, bring dvd's. Excellent internet speeds which were good enough to facetime home.

The shaded garage for your hire car was something I never gave credit to on booking, but after getting in stupidly hot cars after day trips, its something I appreciated.

Small downsides, which is being picky: My wife said it needed a full length mirror.

The pool had too much chlorine, which is a transient issue, but was still at the end of the holiday, a bit too strong.

In total these are quality villas, with strong backup/care from the owners, which I would not hesitate to recommend.
