Kythira is not easy to reach, particularly coming from England, but the effort is rewarded with a peaceful island, rich in history, with plenty to see and do, very nice restaurants and beaches. We decided to spend 5 days (4 nights) in Kythira and I booked Maistrali Apartments in Diakofti because of the excellent reviews and the very nice, family friendly beach. We arrived from the ferry and it was very nice that we didn't have to drive half an hour across the island; the ferry port is at Diakofti, although quite a way from the beach and buildings that it doesn't disturb you. Upon arriving at Maistrali Apartments, we received such a warm welcome from Sophia and her family. We were delighted with our 2 bedroom apartment on the 1st floor: it had everything we needed, plenty of space and it all looked so clean. In fact, the apartment was cleaned every day, which was very nice. We all slept well and Diakofti is so small and peaceful, I can't imagine anyone would have their sleep disturbed! Breakfast was a delight: we sat outside at shady tables on the terrace at the front of the apartment building, there was a buffet with everything you could want and more! Every day, Sophia delighted us with different, freshly made Greek and local dishes from savoury pie to sweet cakes and chocolate pancakes or pastries to tempt the children. My husband can't eat dairy and Sophia was very kind to make something every day that was dairy free, such as her delicious cake. There is not a lot in Diakofti: no bus stop (that we could see), just one small mini-mart shop which happened to be next door to the apartment and sold a few bits and pieces (it isn't a mini supermarket); there is one restaurant and a couple of cafe-bars that sell snacks - I would recommend you rent a car, which you can do at Diakofti port or from other car rental agencies, possibly through your hotel or apartments. The beach at Diakofti is wonderful. There are parts which are very rocky and we stayed away after a few bleeding scrapes on children's legs and feet, but the central part of the beach is golden sand, gently shelving to turquoise waters with fishes swimming around and made all the more picturesque by a few fishing boats moored nearby and no motorboats or jet skis. We loved the beach. There are sun beds and umbrellas but we never managed to get one by the time we went to the beach and it was August. Kythira has quite a connection to Australia and it was strange to hear Aussie accents! I was sad to see so much plastic rubbish (big and small) on this beach and every other beach we visited (on Kythira and elsewhere in the Peloponnese) - on the beach, in the sea and at the bottom of the sea. It is probably 15 years since I spent so much time on European beaches and I guess this is a problem everywhere, not just in Greece. Having visited a few other places on the island, I was glad we chose to stay at Diakofti. Having seen that most of the accommodation in Diakofti looks quite similar, with similar facilities, I don't think we could have done better than Maistrali Apartments and, with such a warm welcome, I was sorry to leave there and I would gladly return to stay there again. We paid 140 euros per night for our 2 bedroom apartment for 4. I would say this is not cheap, but I was happy with the apartment and I think the price reflects the typical prices on Kythira, especially to stay near the beach. Kythira is not a big island but its villages are spread out and the roads are small island roads that twist around the hills and through the ancient villages, so if you stayed inland it would be a drive of probably 20-30 minutes to reach one of the beaches. I would recommend visiting other places on the island. We particularly enjoyed visiting Kythira Town (Chora or Hora), which is really pretty although we discovered most of its restaurants only opened in the evening; and we also loved visiting the cave of Agia Sophia near Milapotamos - you need sturdy shoes (not flip flops), but it is well worth visiting - we had a great lunch afterwards at Platanos Restaurant in Milopotamos.

It's a very decent apartment for your stay in Kithira. Far from the party and quiet for families. The rooms are very expensive for the quality that offer. Value for money is very poor. We paid 100€ per day, which is very expensive for that kind of apartments. No elevators are provided.

We recently spent 23 days at Maistrali Apartments In Diakofti. The hotel is very well positioned to get beautiful views across the bay and of the shipwreck, with close proximity to local restaurants, cafés mini market and the beach. The rooms are nicely appointed and are cleaned and made up beautifully each day, the gardens are well maintained and has comfortable places for guests to sit outside in the day or evening. It is also nice to sit on your verandah and watch village life take place and the ferries from the mainland and Crete arrive and depart from the port across the bay. Cars to tour the island can be hired directly through the hotel. Avlomonas, Mitata & Potamos are close by. Hotel staff are very helpful, friendly and obliging. Overall I would highly recommend Maistrali Apartments as an excellent relaxing location for a stay while on Kithera.

Stayed for 6 nights at the Maistrali apt, knowing beforehand that distances in Kythira are best dealt with a car. The apartment had all the necessary amenities, kitchenette, utensils etc, everything was in order, no problems whatsoever. The landlady was helpful, offered maps and directions to places. Price was 45euro per night, highly recommended!
