“Peaceful, Friendly Stay”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

The best thing about our stay was definitely the large balcony with amazing views. We ended up eating most of our meals on this balcony (or at least drinking the night away) just because it was so nice.

Other things we liked: The homemade cheese that we got from the owners (as well as the bread and vegetables and melons!). The full kitchen in the room to make those balcony dinners. The never-ending parade of friendly cats, who were obviously loved and cared for. The calm village of Pollonia, just a short walk away (and quite a nice beach by the way!). The quietness of the location. And most importantly, the sweet kind owners.

This could be a great getaway if a few details weren't missing. For example, there is no curtain in the shower so you ended up flooding the bathroom every time you took a shower (conveniently, there was a mop and a bucket provided - exactly my hobby on vacation :-))). The windows were uncontrollable - either they were closed, or they made loud noises depending on wind gusts. We had to do some creative jerry-rigging including a watermelon to get it right. No fan in the room, so windows being open was important.

Overall, very nice and relaxing stay...except for those small details...

Tip: DO NOT MISS the boat tour with Andreas. He is really fun, and shows you an amazing part of Greece. That day felt like we were on the set of Anthony Bourdain episode. Wonderful

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms = beautiful views for both sunrise and sunset!

Fantatic and private view on a marvelous bay .

The studios at Andreas rooms are nice and have an amazing sea view from the balconies. It´s pure joy just sitting there and look out over the sea at any time of the day! The owners are helpful but can be a little difficult to find at times. The cleaning of the studios could have been better. The beach and the restaurants are within easy walking distance.

We stayed with Andreas and Brigitte in May 2011 for 3 nights, which was €120 (low season rate).
The studio was large, lovely decorated and with all amenities i.e. small kitchen, bathroom, balcony and access to a shared terrace. As the studios are on a headland there are beautiful sea views from both sides - really the location couldn't be any better!
Pollonia is a beautiful, unspoiled harbour village and from the studios we had easy access to shops, a great bakery and at least two very good restaurants.
Access to the rest of the beautiful island of Mlilos is easy assuming you have a car.
Like other reviewers we found that the hosts' friendly welcome included their own tomatoes and fresh feta cheese, which was absolutely delicious!
We will definitely be returning to Milos and we would also try to stay with Andreas and Brigitte again.

I highly recommend Andrea's. The hosts will welcome you with a smile and ensure that your stay in Milos is truly unforgettable. You will have organic vegetables and eggs delivered to your door, you can cook in or eat out at the many delicious tavernas.
It is so relaxing and there are very few tourists.....!!!!
I swam today and was the only one on the beach. Then returning home to watch the sunset with an ouzo, it's paradise.....
I will return here for longer the next time.
Thanks Andreas and Brigitte for a stay I will never forget.

I stayed here back in 2006 and you'll find my review of that titled "Get in". We decided to go back there for a 6 night stay in September 2010.

I was glad nothing had changed in terms of the quality and friendliness of service that Andreas and Brigitte offer their guests. They now also have a fantsatic WLAN, which is useful to check out ferry schedules, weather and whatnot. In addition, I was delighted to be able to experience one of Andreas’ new ventures, which was a trip on his traditional Greek boat called "Perseas".

We left at 11am from the harbour at Pollonia in a comfortable party of 9 people. (It was a great time to leave because it gave us ample recovery-time from our Retsina-smash the night before). We then made a short trip over to the coast of Kimolos, passing by the harbour and making our way out to the deserted island of Polyaigos via a superb spot for a swim called "Blue Bay". Here the rock formations and colours were mystical. We were lucky enough to see a monk seal (albeit from a distance), but sadly he/she didn't fancy getting close enough to be photographed properly and disappeared.

Our eventual destination was a remote beach with a lighthouse high up on the cliff above. Here we made base, staying for the best part of 4hrs. Some of us swam, some walked up to the lighthouse – but I’m too lazy for that, so I helped Andreas with the food.

What followed was a smashing barbecue and lashings of white wine whilst we were visited by the natives - wild mountain goats. As the sun started to get lower around 5-ish we made our way back to Milos, with ouzo, via a trip round the islet of Glaronnissia with its Giants Causeway-style pillars of rock.

According to 2 other people on the boat, this trip was incomparable with one they’d been on from the main port of Adamas, but I can’t vouch for the accuracy of that because I’ve never been on one to compare yet I don't see how I could be persuaded to go on one either. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on Perseas and there wasn't a single complaint from the others because I met most of them later during our stay - such is the size of Pollonia- and we shared our thoughts. Plus, the value for money was outstanding.

I really can’t really add anything about the accommodation that I haven’t said in my previous post. It’s still totally ace! And we’re booked up to go again this year.

Maybe see you there!
