The cooking process was really simple through trip advisor, but found I got a quick response from the owners via telephone as I understand they receive hundreds of messages a day. We arrived late evening, after a long tiring day and were greeted by the family at the apartments pool bar. We were shown to our room, which turned out to be two interconnecting apartments, and we offered a welcome drink once we'd left our belongings. The owner cooked our hungry kids some chips (it was nearly 11pm at night so the kitchen had long since closed), and given a welcome drink and a quick guide to the island (where to go etc).
Our room was cleaned to high standard, the bed was a super king/queen size, with another single along the other wall; the three beds in the other apartment were singles. The apartments had a small kitchenette with cutlery/plates/cups/bowls and there was a frying pan. There was a two ring hob alongside the sink. Unfortunately there was no toaster or microwave/oven making 'self catering' difficult. The wifi quality wasn't great (I assume, over used). This was the only 'negative' of the whole stay.
The whole family were super welcoming and friendly, teaching us Greek words and making us laugh! The pool is amazing, with plenty of sun beds and it was very clean. The gardens are really nicely kept, the balcony areas look into he back and are a good enough size for four people.
The cooking at the pool bar lovely and reasonably priced. The cleaning lady recognised the kids were cold in the evening, and left lovely blankets for them on their beds.
Having the supermarket next door was really helpful and as cheap as the bigger supermarkets down on the main road. The location in Faliraki was ideal, a 5 minute walk from the main strip but super quiet during the day and night. I'd say car hire for the island is recommended if you want to see plenty of the island as the public transport won't get you everywhere and there are some incredible beaches off the beaten track.
Thank you again to you all at Lyristis for making our stay so comfortable. Hopefully see you again.

We were made so welcome by Savvas and Evi from start to finish of our holiday at these apartments. The pool area was lovely and despite the fact we were in the peak holiday period there were ample sun beds and at times we were the only ones in the pool! This is a family run complex, the supermarket is alongside the apartments open from early morning till late at night. Dino and Kiki were also lovely always smiling and made us so very welcome. The BBQs were amazing, delicious food. Every snack we had in the pool bar was excellent. Would definitely return. Will recommend to all family and friends. This is one of the best holidays we've had and look forward to being able to spend time at these apartments in the future.
