Spent a week at the Villa Maraki departing on 4 Sep and we had a very chilled holiday in great surroundings. The Maraki is perfectly located, 5 mins from the beach and only 15 mins from Skiathos Town on the very regular bus. The accommodation is basic, you get what you pay for. It is a small complex but this... More

The villa has all you need, there are shops very close by, though items are cheaper in the smaller shops in town. There are a lot of lovely eateries around the local area, Jimmy's is a very popular Taverna as is Babounakia & Green Park. The beach is about 5 minutes walk & has beautiful soft sand with fab water... More

Just had a great two weeks at the villa. Rooms are excellent and very clean. Close to a excellent beach. Pool is small but had no trouble in getting a sun lounger.

We visited Skiathos and stayed at the Villa Maraki. It was perfect for what we wanted. Clean, ideal location and the bar owner Sakis was so welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be booking for next year!

Typical Greek style apartments, basic, clean and functional. I was a little disappointed at the lack of balcony as we had a room with an outside table and chairs, which was next to the apartments front door. I went with my 2 children and parents and all were very happy, The pool is lovely and clean and the staff welcoming... More

Just coming to the end of two weeks of heaven! Villa maraki is kept spotless by the friendly and pleasing staff, sakis behind the bar is very friendly and nothing is to much for him to ask for, he puts on a Greek night with his family and friends on a Sunday night for 10 euros its great value, even...

From the moment we arrived Sakis the manager made us very welcome. The rooms are clean and kept so daily by the friendly staff. Linen is changed every 3 days. Tea towels are supplied which is a first for me! Good range of crockery - all matching - supplied. There's the usual kettle and a working hob, again a first... More

Having been to Skiathos on a number of occasions and for what ever reason had yet to find a self catering accommodation that we were made to feel welcome felt at home there. The Maraki accommodation is typical Greek self catering not the largest but adequate, in the rooms is a hair dryer, toaster, safe deposit* & air con* (*... More

Having read all the great reviews of this place, was expecting a bit more than we got. Its in a great location, very clean and pitureqsue. I think we came unstuck with the room we had (room 15). It was a 1 bed apartment but the bedroom was really, really small with no room to walk around. The kitchen area... More
