If you like a clean an quite place with a stunning view over the village and the hills this is the place.
I am a returning customer and Maria's service (she is the owner) has improved.
Rooms are fully cleaned each day. Towels are changed as well as sheets when necessary or on demand.
Each room has his own terrace quite and separated from other bungalows. This gives a feeling of privacy that is very enjoyable when you take your breakfast or an evening drink. The garden is planted with herbs, bushes or sunflowers.
No noise at night.
Kichen is functional and has everything you need, even if you want to cook full meals.
Showers always have warm water during day and night.
Finally, Maria is a very welcoming person and reliable. No bad surprise.
Like any good place on a small island I would advice booking a long time in advance.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

First of all Donoussa is an island for people who love quiet, calm and nature vacations.We stayed at one of Markouli studios for 8 days.If we could we would stayed at least for a month.The studio was really clean,with a great sea and stars view.It was up on the hill but totally worth it if you want that great view.Maria- the owner- was really helpful and friendly.We recommend Markoul studios and we will definitely go next year.

We chose the Markouli Studios after looking on Trip advisor and seeing the excellent reviews and they didn't disappoint. We only spent two nights there and had to fit in as much as possible and I contacted Maria as we wanted to arrive in the early evening and then set off a little later to a recommended tavern and Maria booked the taxi for us and introduced us to Demetri the taxi driver when we arrived in the port. Maria was there to welcome us with excellent English and her brother took our suitcases and transported us up the hill to the accommodation. They also took us back to the port with our bags when we were leaving. The studios are on a hill with wonderful island and sea views and a short walk from the centre of the port and all amenities, food and a lovely sandy beach!. The accommodation consisted of a spacious room with a galley kitchen and bathroom off. Our kitchen was a little hob and electric kettle well supplied for cooking your own meals. We had a large balcony with table and chairs. It was a lovely contrast to other studios which had consisted of a hotel bedroom size studio. The bed was comfortable and there was water in the fridge on arrival. Hair dryer available. Maria gave us a card on our arrival and said to phone her if we needed anything. The studio was 30 euros per night, what a bargain. I would definitely recommend these studios to fellow travellers. If you have any problems with hills I would give them a miss. You can have your studio cleaned everyday with clean towels if you wish. Shame we only spent two nights there.

Room Tip: All the studios have wonderful views from the balconies.

We, the wife and I, were so fortunate to have had this accommodation recommended to us by fellow backpackers who we had met on another island. This confirmed what we had already learned through Tripadvisor. The accommodation was excellent in every respect and provided everything we required and more. The rooms were spacious, cleaned on a daily basis, enjoy an excellent view and are most comfortable, a great deal of thought being given to making your stay a most pleasant one. A most convenient location providing good access to the beach, tavernas and the port. Maria, the owner, was in Paros, but we were well looked after by mum, Irini, and Adonis, the brother, who collected us from the port and took us down when we were leaving. A great stay on a lovely island made even better because of the standard of our accommodation.

Maria Markouli is one of those rare people who exude goodwill and optimism 24 hours a day. She was a delight. Warm, friendly and very helpful. The ideal hostess. Her studios are light and airy with a wonderful view of the port. She is a fund of information on the island and speaks excellent English.

The port is bustling with ferries docking by day and by night. She fetches her clients from the port and delivers them back in time for the departing ferry. Very useful given the steepness of the ascent to the Markouli Studios.

The only drawback is the proximity to the neighbours' patio. That said its a paradise and the village has not yet been swamped by tourists. It's a must for very aficionado of Greek Isles.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs studio.

In August I spent ten days in the little, fantastic island of Donoussa, and I enjoied very much my accomodation in Markouli Studios. We were a group of friends and we rented five studios. Our choice couldn't have been better!
On a hill, with a wonderful view on the sea and on Donoussa port, these very comfortable, self-catering studios give you everything you need for a perfect holiday: peaceful location, beautiful landscape, good price, all the facilities, every-day cleaning, lovely balconies where It is delicious to have breakfast, or read a book when the day is ending... And flowers all around...
And - last but not least - the kindness and the smile of Maria, the young and helpful owner, who adds something special to your staying, pick you up at the port and provides you everything you need.
If you like nature, simplicity, wonderful sea, the life in a small, traditional village, Donoussa is the island for you!
The harbour and the tiny, little village of Stavros, with a fantastic bakery, some tavernas and two little markets, a fantastic beach with clear crystal water, are very close to the studios (about 5/10 minutes by foot).
I will take in my heart the silence of the night and the beautiful sky full of stars over my head...
Definitely a place where I want and hope to come back again.

Thank you, Maria!

Markouli studios are everything one could desire for his holiday: nice, new, clean, with panoramic view of the Aegean sea: all this at a very good price. Maria, the owner, is really nice and helpful. A perfect stay in wonderful Donoussa :)
