“Outstandingly beautiful place to stay.”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I am sitting here in the apartment, and through the patio doors, looking out over the balcony, I can see a fabulous view of the Island, the sea, and the sailing boats. Looking straight ahead out of another winodw I can see cypress trees, olive trees and a lovely hillside, looking left out of the kitchen window, I can see more olive trees and a bit of a fig tree ... which I know has fresh figs on it which I have with breakfast.
The initial thing which makes this place so special is that Artemis contacts you as soon as you book to help you with all aspects of getting here.
When I arrived I could not believe the beauty of the place. The apartment itself is comfortable and homely, and furnished in a sensible way, and there are extensive areas of olive tree and fruit trees. There is a barbecue.
Family who popped by for one night loved it too, and one of them wants to bring his wife here for a holiday because he was so taken with it.
Here you have both privacy and quietness, yet there is a beach down the bottom of the drive, less than ten minutes walk away, and Vathi itself is only five minutes by car.
I hired a small car which is really necessary to see the island properly and helps with carrying supplies back from Vathi.
One review criticised the Wifi ... the owner has taken great care to make sure that there is a strong signal in every room, but the wifi itself is 'iffy' because of the island network. 90 percent of the time I have managed to get a reasonable speed, but evenings (as in many places in the UK!) can be not so good.

Our 2nd visit to Dexa Villas. Just as wonderful plus wi-fi this time. Very friendly and helpful owners, wonderful situation, views out of this world and extremely peaceful. Just 5 minutes drive from all the bars and tavernas in Vathy, 10 minutes walk to a beautiful beach and a quiet, clean, well looked after apartment. Everything needed for a perfect holiday. Will certainly be coming back, maybe bringing friends and/or family next time.
