we asked for a top floor room which we were given, it was beautiful. The view from the front balcony was fabulous, could sit there all day watching the world go by.
there was a rear balcony which got the sun later on in the day and where there were birds and lovely plants. The apartment was adequately kitted out, wifi was very good, kettle, fridge and 2 ring hob. The bathroom was also spotlessly clean as was all of the apartment and toiletries were replenished as were towels when needed. There was a washing machine that was available for residents to use which we were pleased to see, the only suggestion i would make is if they were to charge a euro for washing powder or tablets as we had to buy a large box. The beds were very comfortable and the decco was very stylish. We stayed for 10 days and the beds were changed 3 times. The position just out of the centre of the town suited us as it was not as busy as in the centre of Kalyves even though you were only about 10 mins walk to all restaurants, bars etc. there were a couple of restaurants just a couple of mins walk and these were very nice too as they were on the edge of the beach. The apartment is nearer to the quieter beach which is also in my recommendation the best, crystal clear water and warm even at the end of September, all in all a very enjoyable stay, Johanna and partner were very attentive, gave us a welcome basket on arrival (some melba toast, butter and jam)and maps and ideas of places to go to. We had a hire car but the bus stop was only a couple of minutes walk away and a large well equipped supermarket the same, would love to go back :-)
