My partner and myself stayed there for 9 nights in early August. We booked the studio in early June (too late apparently to book another studio) by directly communicating with the landlord, after some research on the internet. The photos on the website give an idea of what the studios look like, though in reality they are much better. The price, 60 euro per night for a double studio, is fair for this time of the year and compared to the prices of other studios in the same area, Plaka, Naxos. The rooms are spacious and very well-equipped compared to other studios we’ve stayed (in Paros and Patmos), and the daily cleaning service (by the landlord’s daughter) was exceptionally thorough. The problem with this property is its location: in the middle of nowhere (don’t get fooled by the photos), and if you have no car (preferably not a new and precious one) it is a problem to get there. Although we told the landlord that we would arrive by ferry to Naxos and we would get there by bus, and although he gave us instructions where to get off and of the way to the property, he did not offer to pick us up from the port or even the bus stop where we got off, and we had to drag our luggage to the property. We definitely were not prepared for quite a long distance (too long to walk it in a midday August day) walk through a sand and soil street. There is a path to the beach, of course not accessible by car or motorbike, but to get to the nearest mini-market or the nudist part of the beach, it is a really long distance.
Another annoyance were the mosquitoes: doors closed and air-conditioning on in the evening (to be fair, it’s not anyone’s fault, but it’s worth mentioning to take precautions).
Overall, if you’re looking for a quiet, really quiet, place to spend a couple of days then the property is ideal as long as you are prepared.
P.S. The landlord took us to the ferry when we left although it was in the middle of the night and gave us one night for free for some sewage problems we experienced.
