“Great host, great views, but house a bit small for 5”

Catherine is a great host -- picked us up from the ferry, and even gave us a list of numbers to call for taxis plus a simplified map for guiding taxis. The property is very near Paranga beach, which is a big plus. However, it is a little far from city center, and you must taxi your way around as there is not much reliable public transport (~EUR10 one way). The property is quite secluded, such that even taxis get lost too. It is also just 5 minutes away from the Mykonos airport. Beautiful views of the sea, impressive swimming pool, but still a tad too cold for use in May.

The house is not without problems though. First, it is too small for 5, let alone 6. One of us had a 30 inch suitcase, and can hardly get it through the ground floor bedroom door. The other room on the ground floor with the bunk bed is really just large enough for the bed plus a small bedside table. The upstairs room with a double-bed is normal sized. The living room is small, and if all 5 of us decided to sit we'd be pretty cramped. If we all wanted to eat together we can only be at the outdoor table. Otherwise, someone has to eat on the sofa while the rest eat at the dining table.

Second, the decoration is cozy and homely, but perhaps a bit too homely and a bit dated.

Third, two of us had sensitive skin, and had some trouble with the bedding. Not sure if it's because of the washing powder used.

Not exactly the most outstanding place we stayed, especially compared to the property we rented in Santorini for roughly the same price. Really hate to say this as Catherine is a great host, but I'm sure there are better rentals!

Hi Casey,

I would like to thank you for your very kind words about me. I would also like to take this opportunity to clarify some points you made regarding your stay.

The house and its location are described in detail and shown in maps, both in this listing and in the written directions I give to all guests prior to their arrival. The house is within a complex of ten other villas, it is barely 3 minutes away from a large & well known super market, and the road leading to it is full of more villas. I don't think it can be characterized as secluded or hard to find. As for your taxi driver getting lost, are you sure he/she was given the right instructions? Mykonos is a small island and taxi drivers here know how to get around well.

You mention that the pool was cold when you came in May, but let me point out that unfortunately May temperatures do not always favour pool swimming in Greece.

Concerning decoration, the house is photographed in every detail and its decoration and dimensions are depicted in every way in this listing.

It is true that the indoor living room is not very big, but as this is a summer holiday house, people eat, relax and spend most of the day outside in the very spacious veranda (where the larger dinner table is located), as well as the big garden and the large swimming pool. I believe that these very spacious areas (all overlooking the sea) more than compensate for the smaller living room.

Regarding the bedding, I would have gladly used special washing powder for very sensitive skins, if you had mentioned your particular skin sensitivities at any point prior or during your stay.

Thank you and best wishes!

Catherine
