My partner and I have just returned from our fourth annual stay at Ismini's. This is the most enchanting place you could wish to find. So totally peaceful, it is hard to believe you are in the heart of Kalyves with shops and excellent, friendly bars and restaurants on the doorstep. We have stayed in the guesthouse but also the...

Beautiful house, surrounded by colourful flowers in a stunning setting. In front of the house is a big lawn with a private gate to the beach. Ismini has sole use of the umbrellas on the stretch of the beach just outside the house, so you pretty much have that bit of the beach to yourself. Ismini gave us a warm...

We have just returned from a wonderful week's say at Ismini's Wished we could have stayed longer Everything was absolutely perfect & what a wonderful lady Ismini is as well as being a caring gardener with a green fingered touch.

This is an awkward place. Ismini, the owner, needs help running the place but she seems to look after everything herself. The pictures are expertly taken. What they don't show is a busy road that runs just behind the apartments. Not a secluded place as it may seem. The toilets don't flush toilet paper, so you have to put the...

I have stayed several times at Ismini's many times over the years and cannot recommend it highly enough. The main "apartment" is really a house, not an apartment, but Ismini is reluctant to reflect that in her prices up and charge the market value because she is a generous soul and feels loyal to her repeat customers (of whom there...

We spent two weeks at Ismini's apartment in April 2015 with our 19 month old son and had a great time. The big garden and the many toys and swings kept out son busy. Ismini was very generous with her time and advice on where to eat and shop. The local tavernas delivered to our apartment. The apartments have been...

We have been going to Kalives for 20 years now and 15 of those years have been spent at the Ismini Apartments which says it all.

We first stayed last autumn for a week in one of the two small side apartments - so good we booked last week - and now we have booked again for next June. As it says elsewhere you walk from the patio of the apartment through the garden onto your own stretch of beach - or you go the other...
