Wonderful stay on Naxos

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for five nights. Janine was most helpful and welcoming. The apartment was well equipped, very clean and comfortable. We loved the courtyard where we ate all of our breakfasts. The ten minute walk down the hill into the old town was easy and scenic. Well within walking distance of everything we wanted - restaurants, markets, car rental. Our only suggestion would be a hand rail on the stairs from the bedroom down into the main room and bathroom. Thank you, Janine, for a wonderful stay. We would highly recommend this Naxos apartment.

Wonderful Host!

  • 4 of 5

Jeanine is a delight! The apartment has a convenient location . . . easy walk to town and the port. The sunsets from the hillside. . . just a few steps away. . . are often spectacular! The bed is very hard, but Jeanine kindly provided enough cushioning that we managed to create a comfortable sleeping space. The apartment is small, but adequate. . . for no more than 2 people. . . and the price is certainly right.

Fabulous apartment close to town

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay! This wonderful apartment was so comfy with its 2 rooms each opening onto a gorgeous vine-covered courtyard, and host Janine made us feel very welcome indeed. The apartment is quiet and private, yet it's only a very short walk from the port and the town. Hora itself is perfect - not too full of tourists, abundant tavernas lining the portside, fascinating castle and museums and ancient sites. And Naxos is superb for long walks and drives. We'll be back as soon as we can!

Absolutely perfect! Everything you need and more, great host and close to the town

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying here, was clean and tidy and had a really helpful guide pack which Jannine had put together. We found the best beaches and old towns from it.

The property itself is a 5 min walk to the old town and also the more touristy busy bit of town. Me and my boyfriend decided to eat in a couple of nights as there's a cute patio area and full working kitchen it was really nice to just chill. The supermarket is really close as well if your doing things on a budget like us.

Would highly recommend this property and would happily come back year after year

Wonderful host and perfect proximity accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

Janine was so helpful and accommodating when planning our visit. The apartment was comfortable and roomy, wifi worked well and everything we wanted to see was close enough to walk to..but far away enough to have quiet when desired. A perfect spot to visit Naxos. Thanks so much for all you did.

A LITTLE HAVEN

  • 5 of 5

We booked one of two apartments with same entry from street doorway in a "walled/shared patio garden" setting. Our apartment was split level, very clean, spacious and comfortable with use of 2 of the 3 patio areas. We tended to use the patio furthest from the street entry door for more privacy and shade as it is covered with a "pagoda" entwined with bougainvillea and grapevines. Janine is very welcoming and helpful; good company and an excellent hostess. A short walk down the cliff top "path" and we were into the Hora/old town area full of fascinating windy streets full of shops, cafes, tavernas, bars and much more. Bakeries and supermarkets are within a 5 minute walk. Given the popularity of this area, we were not always able to park near to the apartment however the location does make for ease of access onto the "ring round" thus avoiding the town centre and its one-way systems and there are parking areas at the bottom of the hill if all else fails [never had to use this]. Our two week stay went all too quickly. Definitely recommend. We love Naxos and will definitely be returning.
