We just spent six nights at Villla Paradise in the Yellow apartment. We really enjoyed our stay on Naxos, and at this rental unit. There were definitely plusses and minuses to staying here, so I'll try to give some detail as to what we liked and what we didn't like.
We unfortunately arrived on a very, very hot day, and without our luggage, which didn't arrive until the next day. So we had a bit of a slow start here. We also took the Google Maps route from the airport, which was along a dirt road for much more than needed (the fast way does still involve some unpaved road).
After getting settled with AC and a swim, we did get into the swing of things. Within a few days, we started to really enjoy.
The unit is nice and well furnished. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was decently equipped for a short term rental. As we seem to find everywhere in Europe, the showers just aren't what we have at home. That led to the downstairs bathroom (shower curtain, but no way to mount the handheld spigot) often smelling a little musty (no real window) and the upstairs bathroom (mounted spigot, but no curtain) to getting pretty wet and leaking out into the hallway.
Other than that, management was nice and responsive. Luca helped us with information about Naxos and got us some fish one night for dinner which was delicious on a grill he set up.
Overall, probably our biggest issue with the unit was the location. It's billed as being at the end of Plaka beach, and I guess it technically is, but there's not a lot of beach at the end, and what's there is right at a turn in the dusty road. It's not a place to spend any real time - you either have to walk up with your own chairs and umbrella, or drive up to the main Plaka or down to Mikri Vigla or somewhere else. You essentially can't walk to anything beside a bit of swimming - no restaurants or stores or anything. That takes, at the least, a drive on the dirt roads.
So, while these guys are nice and the unit was basically comfortable, I wouldn't rent it again solely based on the location. I really don't like to be stuck in a car too much on vacation and I felt like that happened here. But if the access isn't a big deal to you, this is a great place, with nice management.
