This fairly new property is beautiful inside and out. It is run by Kostas and his wife, who creates hand-made art and fixtures which is used to furnish the interior. The house itself is very spacious and cool with a huge living-room kitchen (modern kitchen) on top, and quiet bedrooms, bathrooms, and and office are partly below ground. The bathrooms are large - one is specially for kids. There is excellent WiFi throughout the house.
We loved the natural orchard garden outside - Kostas told us to pick fruit from the trees for breakfast! There is a large patio outside (with drying area and showers for beach) and a terrace at the front which we watched the sunset from.
There were a couple of empty houses nearby, and overall it felt very private - basically like living in someone's modern house.
The beach was a 5-10min flat walk away with sand, swimming, bars, restaurants etc. Plaka is a 15 min walk and has miles of sand.
Kostas and his wife Ellie couldn't have been more helpful - checking we had everything we needed, and even cleaning mid-week at no extra charge. The most friendly, charming rental owners we've ever come across!
Definitely a place to come back to.
We highly recommend Saint Nicolas! Maragas and Agia Anna were cozy places with good tavernas and beautiful beaches. We will be happy to return here.
