we had a 2-bedroom apartment (no.9); the second bedroom had 2 twin-beds with one end of the large room devoted to the kitchen area. Each large room (one with a large cupboard, no drawers) had a large balcony with amazing views of the sea, one furnished with large table, the other with clothes drying rack; both with ordinary plastic chairs, no cushions. Pavlina, the American owner, hastens to say the apartment is self-catering – BUT it is very minimally equipped. Is it possible that no guest has ever left a little salt? Or a little olive oil? Or perhaps some dish washing liquid? One roll of loo paper is provided – “as a starter” says Pavlina but as though this is not the norm. There is a fridge, 2 electric plates, an electric kettle and an old counter top oven – plus a minimal assortment of plates, cutlery and glasses. There is no tea nor coffee maker; no jug, no cutting board, no tray…..the shower has no bathmat nor a curtain but it is possible to take a shower and create a pool in the bathroom: Pavlina provides a mop! Perhaps other guests (whom Pavlina claims return often, thus she needs no advertising) arrive in their own cars with all their own culinary needs……The house is built into the top of the hillside; the gardens are unusual and really a delight, the walk down (and up from) to the beach is not difficult; the local taverna (Paradise Bar and Restaurant), at the bottom of the garden, is very pleasant, reasonably priced and reasonably good. Local bus stops are very convenient, as is the water taxi to Skiathos town. Pavlina will provide all kinds of information if you have time to listen – she talks rapidly and far too much……She is a character!
