French windows from here also lead to the front terrace with a small dining table for al fresco meals. A doorway from the kitchen leads to the spacious double bedroom and en suite wc/shower room with windows from which to admire the stunning views.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The most amazing place!
We stayed at Villa Kentavros for two whole weeks at the end of june 2015. And we couldn't be more satisfied with our stay. First of all, we were taken such good care of from the first moment we contacted the owners about the booking. And when we came to Skopélos the owner met us at the dock with all info and the keys. And they were at our disposal for the rest of the stay, only a message or a phone call away. And the Villa is amazing. We loved the location; not only is it private, quiet and peaceful, but there is such good space (and we were four people staying there), beautiful interior and every room is in exeptional good order. We liked the Villa so much that we were thrilled that the rain came one day so that we could stay inside the Villa and enjoy reading books in the sofa. We also made several meals at home instead of going out to eat, and the kitchen has a high standard and every tool that you must need. The aircondition was also in high standard, but there was no need to use it because the villa being located up in mountains gave us fresh air and just enough wind to make even the warmest day by the pool, comfortable. And the Villa was cleaned perfectly almost every second day, with new towels and sheets. We were so satisfied with our stay that we are already planning to go back next year, and we wouldn't Even think about staying any other place than at Villa Kentavros.

Best trip of our lives
I was sure I had reviewed this property right when we got home last year but I apparently didn't, and for that I apologise to you all because this is the most amazing place in the whole world. Dimitris is the most amazing host who fixed absolutely everything for us, including helping us with our rental car and ferry when our plane into skiathos was delayed. We were greeted and taken to the villa right at the ferry and proceeded to spend an amazing week there. We were so depressed when we had to leave, I believe tears might have been shed. You definitely need a car, but its only a few minutes into town and not far from the road getting you to the good beaches :) The pool was amazing and such a joy to come home to after days in the sun at the beach. The villa has internet, tv (includng english channels) and two bathrooms. We cooked in some nights and ate outside by candlelight watching the boats go in and out of the harbor. We would return in less than a second and certainly hope to come back as soon as possible. There are zero negatives to staying here!

A very pleasant moment and a very good memory
We stayed at Kentavros Villa for three weeks in August. At the beginning we were only two of us and then our 26 year old daughter joinded us. The Villa was as on the pictures. No surprise. The house is perfect for 2 adults and remains livable for 3. It has a very nice swiming pool and a stunning view down on the valley and Skopelos town. It is in a peaceful and quite place on a hill covered with green pinetrees. However, the house is well situated since it is only a 10min drive to Skopelos town/port. A special thanks to Dimitris's assistants who take care of the cleaning of the house. Last but not least, the owner Dimitris was very helpful for a lot of things (car rental, speed boat, info...) and did everything he could (and even more) so that our stay remains a pleasant moment and a very good memory.
