“Perfect peaceful & what views .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Weve visited skiathos over 10 times & love the island & now have found the perfect location. We stayed in pop cottage which was excellent. Spotlessly clean , modern & comfy bed. Tea coffee & fruit left for us when we arrived. Appostolis & litsa are so welcoming & nothing was too much trouble. The cottages are quite high up on the hill which gives amazing views of the town & sea. We loved to sit at the pool in the evening & use the honesty bar which was great. Watch the sun go down & wait for the owl to appear to drink from the pool. Amazing. I loved to hear the goats bells twinkling in the morn . I could have stayed for months .appostolis does a great taxi service which we used a lot. Even tho we had a scooter. Took about 12 mins to walk down hill but longer on way back but good exercise. If you want excellent service peace & quiet . Modern clean comfy rooms with a great pool and fantastic views look no further. Love it love it love it . See u next July can't wait .

We have very recently returned from an eleven-night stay at Garden Cottages. We simply had a wonderful time for our entire stay. Skiathos and the nearby islands were fabulous in themselves but being based at Garden Cottages was the icing on the cake ! The accommodation and the services provided by Apostolis and Litsa could not have been any better. The fact that the cottage was cleaned thoroughly and the bed made daily ( new linen and towels every 2 days I seem to recall ) made it feel more like a hotel . The location was amazing and the views over the town and islands offshore were stunning . The pool ( lit up at night ) and the pool area are probably the loveliest we have used ( a good vantage point for birdwatching too ). What really impressed us however was the thoroughly genuine commitment of Apostolis and Litsa to making sure their guests get the best possible experience of Skiathos. In particular their willingness to ferry us to and from the Airport and to take us to and collect us from town 4 times each day ( exremely helpful given the hillside location) was extraordinary and a reflection of the couple that they are . They know what their guests need and are looking for in a holiday and they go out of their way to provide it with no strings attached. Oh that all holiday property owners were like them! I heartily commend them and Garden Cottages to anyone.

I just returned from my absolutely amazing summer holidays in Skiathos. Our stay at Skiathos Garden Cottages (Rose cottage) was superb in terms of location, service and most important cleanliness. Mrs. Litsa's and Mr. Apostolis kind and warm hospitality cannot be found anywhere else! They are always willing to help and make your stay/holidays worthwhile. What impressed me most was the fact that the cottages were exactly as advertised on their Website. I will definitely never forget the picturesque location of the cottages as a complex, the view from our cottage and of course the amazing view from the overflow pool. Skiathos Garden Cottages is THE place to stay in Skiathos!

We had a lovely, comfortable stay in Litsa & Apostolis' Rose cottage. Apostolis picked us up at the airport and took us straight to the supermarket so we could stock up on necessities for our 12-day stay. All the cottages have gorgeous views over Skiathos town and the surrounding islands, a lovely patio and a barbecue, which we used to grill up some fresh fish, and a decently stocked kitchen. A wonderful cleaning lady came every morning, which was fantastic, and we had clean linens and beach/pool towels every 3 days! Our kids stayed in the pull-out couch which was actually more comfortable than ours. Air conditioning in the bedroom was a necessity, it would have been nice to have A/C in the living room as well as it was very hot and not too breezy! Pool is gorgeous and relaxing and luxurious.
Getting around the island from there was easy once we rented Jimny Jeeps, but Apostolis was also extremely generous with his lifts to and from the town in his spacious car.
I would definitely recommend Skiathos Garden Cottages for anyone planning a trip to Skiathos!

I'm not sure I should write this review - it may make reserving in future more difficult! The cottages are pristine and beautifully situated affording the most amazing view over the town, the islands and out to see with the mainland in the far distance. The pool is fabulous and makes it difficult to drag oneself away to explore the island. As for Apostolis - he is charming and ultra helpful; he ensured our stay was as enjoyable as it could be. There are not enough superlatives to describe our stay. We will definitely be returning.

Just returned from from an amazing holiday in Skiathos. Our stay at Skiathos Garden Cottages was fabulous, the best accomadation we have experienced in Greece - it exceeded all our expectations.

The accommadation was well equiped and spotlessly clean, the views are outstanding both during the day and in the evening. Each cottage has its own BBQ which we used three times ( you can buy top quality meat from the local butchers, also feta cheese and the most amazing free range eggs which you can enjoy in the morning while watching Skiathos come alive from your private terrace).

Litsa and Apostolis are the perfect hosts, the lift service to and fro to Skiathos town are so convienient. We will definetly be returning next year.

We have just returned from another wonderful relaxing holiday on the beautiful island of Skiathos.This was our fourth time staying at the cottages which are owned and managed by Litsa and Apostolis who are the perfect hosts.They both work extremely hard to make sure everything is perfect - and it always is! The cottages are nestled into the hillside in a superb location and only a short distance from the town, with lifts to and from the town provided by Litsa and Apostolis.All the cottages are very nicely furnished,spacious,well equipped,maintained, and immaculately cleaned daily.Each cottage has a lovely large terrace with amazing views over the town and we never tire of watching the ferries and boats leaving the harbour whilst enjoying a glass of wine.We also enjoyed our afternoons relaxing by the beautiful infinity pool which also has amazing views of the town and surrounding islands.Prior to staying at the cottages we have never returned to the same place twice but we know that because of the stunning location and the genuine warm hospitality of Litsa and Apostolis we look forward to a return visit.
