"Excellent" is my "one word description" for the accommodation
Before anything, I have to mention that it is first time when me and my wife are traveling in Greece with our young daughter (1 year and 9 months old).
So I'm writing the review not only as a tourist but also as a parent of a toddler;
We have been there between 26 June and 9 July 2016.
The owners, Yannis and Despina are very nice, hospitable and careful hosts
The apartment is clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet, ergonomically arranged;
Everything is brand new and the colors assortment is offering a pleasant ambiance.
The kitchen is well equipped with the necessary equipment (water kettle, toaster, coffee filter).
The fridge is midsize and it has a freezer; In our case it was sufficient to store the "pre-cooked and freezed" food supply (for 14 days) for the noon meals of my child.
For the dinner we went to the taverns in the port, which have delicious food and which are child-friendly
Anyway in case you might need something, you could ask Yannis; he will promptly reply to you
The AC is a modern one (Invertor technology), and it has the "sleep" function, so the inner unit can silently work without disturbing (with the noise) your after-noon sleep
Both rooms have exterior rolling shutters, so you could easily adjusting the luminosity in the whole apartment from total dark to full light
All the windows have insect nets, as well as the balcony door has a very practical sliding insect net
The access to the Internet is offered via Wi-Fi connection.
The balcony is indeed a great feature for the apartment; it is spacious, shaded by a beautiful awning, with very comfortable chairs and table and with a splendid view to the sea and to the Athos mountain. The best place to relax and enjoy the early morning coffee, the afternoon cold ouzo/bear and the late night wine. It was the main reason for not opening once the TV ...
The private parking place, just in front of the main door of the house offers just an extra comfort in loading/unloading the gear for the beach
Based on my 16 years holiday experience with Greece, the "Above the sea Apartment" is in my opinion a great value for the money
Why we have choose Skala Marion?
- In our previous holidays, we have visited many beautiful places in Greece, but when we have visited Skala Marion (in 2008), we have both declared (with absolutely no doubt) the Atspas Beach as our top choice for the time when we will have a baby. Since 2008, we haven't changed our top, and now we have the baby ...
- The Astpas Beach is perfect for babies, toddlers and children: beautiful view, clear, clean, calm, swallow waters for at least 50 meters, fine sand, and natural borders on both sides of the gulf and the beach
- The village is peaceful and tiny, so everything (beaches, taverns, markets, port) is just "near by"
- In case you get bored, there are a lot of interesting places (Maries, Theologos, Limenaria, Potos, Giola) reachable through a short drive through a spectacular road
Many thanks to Despina and Yannis for their hospitality !

Spent two full weeks there! The island has amazing beaches! Atspas beach is one of the best! Very clear waters and very family friendly. It's the best accommodation you can find for this price! Everything is brand new in the rooms and the view is really amazing! Relaxing holidays and very close to main towns like Potos and Limenaria.. I am planning to go there again soon!!!
