After extensive research, and with the help of a friend that actually lives on the island, I chose to stay at the Marina View Apartments. My friend and I stayed 8 blissful days at what I consider one of the best choices on the island. After staying at the hotel Cavo Tagoo last year, we wanted to have more of a feel for the island by staying at apartments.
From the moment we landed, after 18 hours of travel, we were pleased with our choice. The owner gracioulsy picked us up late in the evening and delivered us promply to our door.
I'm not quite sure what the previous reviewer meant by surley. The entire family that owns and operates Marina View Apartments were absolutely wonderful. The father, mother, and daughter greeted us with open arms. We couldn't have been treated better throughout our entire week long stay.
The apartments (and I saw all of them in the week) had excellent views. They were very clean, with cleaning service daily. In a perfect location less than a five minute walk into downtown. And by far an exceptional bargin for everything we got. I would highly recommend these apartments for either a short or long stay on the island.

This summer, I visited Mykono for the 4th time and loved it. One of the best parts about my trip was where I stayed this time. An Athenian friend recommended it highly and he was right. It has an excellent location, a breathtaking view, great rooms and good prices. The owners were amongst the kindest I have ever meet. If you ever need a place to stay in Mykono, this place is definitely worth looking into.

Not all the rooms have amazing views or balconies or anywhere to sit for that matter, the room i was given had none of the above and light came in just from a window in the door which was recessed between 2 other roomm and a 30cm square window at the back that looked directly out onto rock about 50cm from the window. We asked to change rooms and the caretaker said he had no other rooms so we left and the owner made us pay for 3 nights accomodation even though we didn't even stay for 1 night. Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website the reality is very different. We were incredibly disappointed.

We booked a 1 bedroom apartment, which was well worth the extra we paid. The view was fantastic, overlooking the harbour. The apartments were spotless, and a very good size. Stelios the owner could not do enough to help us settle in and was on hand if we needed anything.
The position of the apartments would not suit disabled people as it is on a short steep hill, but apart from that I would recommend staying here to anyone who wants to be within walking distance of the town.

agree with comment about surly owner - did little to make us feel welcome. In fact - quite the opposite. Accommodation was disappointing as we (family of 4) found ourselves staying in a hotel reception area (literally), complete with industrial bar area, reception desk and full suite of toilets (about 8) and showers (4) in a downstairs corridor. Also bedroom with ensuite which was the only bathroom we felt comfortable to use. Toilet bin in ensuite emptied once in 4 day stay, other toilets already had paper in bins on arrival (hence reluctance to use). Very spacious but totally impersonal. This apartment would be best suited for large party group, who would not be upset by intrusive and surly owner. View though was wonderful. Beware...pool is for use by mykonos view residents only, within same complex, but under different family member ownership.

The studio apartment was budget style and comfortable enough but the attitude of the owner left a lot to be desired.

When I asked for a new sponge and dishcloth, he advised me to go to the supermarket and buy them myself.
When he saw our washing on the clothes line, he asked us not to wash our clothes there!
When he saw some clothes lying on one of the benches outside the room, he asked us to hang them on the washing line, even though they were not wet!

The caretaker was much more responsive and even brought us some olive oil for cooking when we didn't want to buy a full container.

Overall, value for money but the owner could do with some customer service training.

My wife and I took our second honeymoon to Greece and this was by far the most amazing place we could have stayed in. The view from our apartment was awe inspiring. That sounds cheesey but it is the only way to describe what we saw. It rivals Hawaii sunsets or not to say one is better than the other but the comfort of this hotel makes is better. The owners are the kindest people you would ever want to meet and they made us feel like their actual house guests as opposed to customers. They are kind hearted people. The apartment was clean and roomy. You cannot go wrong here. Enjoy!!
