Lovely apartments , basic but reasonable and near beach and bus stop. Also a mini market open from 9am to 10pm. Owners so friendly and kind. We could pick our own fruit and had fresh eggs and veg. Water park nearby and cash machines in archaravi, 25 min walk or bus ride.
Clean and cosy. Family very helpful and kind. Very quiet area. 15 minute walk to acharavi town, frequent buses passing by on main road. Would go there again.
Apartment No5 is a lovely place to stay if you're wanting a quieter holiday. It's about 20 mins walk into town but close to the sea and there is also a nearby pool with free sunbeds and wifi.
The apartment was cleaned once a week but if you wanted it done more often I'm sure Tasos / Poppy would be happy to oblige. The amenities were great with a proper cooker (4 rings and an oven) and fridge if you wanted to do your own catering. There is a double bed in one room (which has the air con) and twin beds in the other room (which has the tv!). Outside is a patio area with table and chairs and two sunbeds. There are also a couple of umbrellas for use either on the patio or on the beach.
Tasos and Poppy were excellent hosts - friendly and welcoming and always checking that everything was OK with the apartment. The free wifi went down once after a storm but was fixed fairly quickly after. There is satellite TV but only a couple of channels are in English - BBC News and music.
There are numerous good restaurants in easy walking distance - George's was a favourite!
It was a lovely place to stay with great views over the sea and Albania.
The beds / pillows weren't the most comfortable (very hard) but we did get used to them eventually.

Wanted somewhere near a beach, pool and town with bars and restaurants but able to also cook in when wanted to and found it all here. 1km out of the main strip of Acharavi which had everything you needed from big supermarket to local bars and restaurants. The beach was lovely and most days felt like you had your own private beach. The apartment had a cooker which worked really well and was perfect for cooking dinners on nights we decided to stay in. The place was spacious enough for the 2 of us and had our own privacy. The owners were very friendly and always helpful and able to help with any thing you wanted or asked, also they were very kind and shared their home grown veg & fruit which was very tasty. The only negative thing would be the place could of been a bit cleaner on arrival (cobwebs/bug under the bed) maybe this was because we were the first guest there. However this didn't spoil our time there - we had fun exploring the Island, the owners and the local people were all friendly and helpful, beaches were great and so were the taverna's, also a local pool within walking distance.
Will definitely be back for another holiday and will contact to make sure apartment no5 is available.
