Another fabulous holiday in the stunning Forkis Apartments in Ithaca! You simply couldn’t find a more wonderful place to stay. The one bedroomed apartment has the best balcony and view in Greece. It is exceptionally clean and well appointed and the owners are very welcoming and accommodating. They have two apartments and four studios, all with the same fabulous view! Dexa beach below is delightful, with olive trees for shade, gentle sounds of happy cosmopolitan voices (no ghastly booming music here). You can sit and enjoy a drink and excellent food at Panos’ little beach bar. Swimming in the warm sea here is magical, (bit like swimming in an infinity pool surrounded by a wonderful Greek landscape, minus the chlorine). Heavenly. We can’t wait to return and have already booked for next year.

When we arrived were we delighted, it looks lovely at first, and of course the location 50 feet off the beach is appealing. A misunderstanding meant we were given a high up room, up lots of steps. I asked for a ground floor as I have minor mobility issues and don’t like heights. There own website shows ground floor rooms and my contact with them confirmed my booking. They didn’t do anything to assist, or offer a solution such as a chair to use downstairs during the day. We were ignored so just thought we would make the best of it anyway. I had a walking stick which helped get up the steps but coming down was tricky as no handrails. After noticing it was all a bit grubby and broken we decided not to stay despite paying in advance. We knew we would lose money but better than a ruined holiday. We booked to stay here 6 nights and stayed 1. I appreciated on booking it was basic accommodation ,and very dated. I had read other negative reviews and decided decor didn’t matter but it was more than old furniture, and did matter. The garden has an old fridge, rubbish all over the place and is certainly not as charming as old photos lead us to believe. Sunbeds are old and broken, some of the steps down to the beach are full of household rubbish so are not in use. The beach is lovely to the right with grass and olive trees, the beach area outside the apartments is scrubby and appears unkept. If you don’t mind heights and steps, like a beautiful view, are not bothered by basic, old furniture ( while they clearly tried to clean when things are so old its not easy to be spotless) and don’t mind having to drive to restaurants then you will probably be pleased staying here, clearly lots of people are judging by the reviews. Unfortunately it wasn’t right for us.

Location, location and location - on the beach side, 30 meters to waterfront, own deck-chairs, one of the best beaches I seen ever. But furniture are old, bed is creaking, mattress is too soft and old, creaking window shutters, a few electric outlets. Looking as thirty years old construction without renovation. But location is beautiful!

The apartments are well equipped with a full equipped kitchen. Ours had two bedrooms and a common area with open plan kitchen, flat tv screen, free wifi and a dining table. Both rooms had balcony with chairs and table and the most amazing views you can possible wish for. Free parking at the premises and daily service cleaning. The owner is a wonderful and kind person that did everything he could to accommodate all our needs. A short paved path leads to a wonderful beach with the most wonderful view you can possibly need, where you can also have a small bite or drink in a small canteen managed by the owner's son. In the evenings the sun sets behind the mountains so make sure you enjoy this by your terrace and if you are an early bird, the sea at around 7 o'clock in the morning is so calm that resembles to a lake. If you visit Ithaki, this is the perfect spot to stay near Vathy.

The appartments are located in front of Dexa beach at Vathy, and is like a private beach for the people staying there. The beach is really amazing blue and turquoise waters one of the best beaches of Vathy in my personal oppinion. The flats were very clean and a maid was passing every day to clean up. The owners are very friendly and willing to help. The prices were really very good. We stayed for one week and had an amazing time there. Definitely thinking to re-visit!

We've had another wonderful holiday at the Forkis apartments. Comfortable and clean, fantastic view, superb position (quiet but close enough to Vathi). Can't wait to go back next year (already booked).

We’ve already booked for next year so I’m not so worried about spreading the word on how stunning it is. You simply couldn’t find a more wonderful place to stay. The apartment has the best balcony and view in Greece (one-bedroomed apartment that sleeps four). It is exceptionally clean and well appointed and Evi is totally lovely. Book early to avoid disappointment (although you won’t be able to have the one-bed apartment when we are there!). They do have another apartment and four studios, all with the same fabulous view, though!

the Forkis Apartments with Dexa is the right choice. fully recommended. Apartment is fully equipped, 50m from the beach. if you looking for city you need a car or motorbike but for Ithaca it is better - Dexa is not fill and the beach is for you:-) - especially during the evenings. View from apartment is simple GREAT!!!!

We spent 5 days in Forkis appartments. It is situated in a nice location, very close to Vathi (5 min driving distance). Our room had a balcony and beautiful sea view. There is parking space and a beach bar where you can have drinks, coffee or snacks. The owner is very friendly. If you are planning to visit Ithaca, Forkis appartments is a great choice, even though it is a bit expensive.

This is the standard Greek apartment for rent: room + balcony + kitchen + bathroom. Very nice view from the balcony, overall clean room, easy-going people, less than 5 minutes drive from the capital of Ithaki, less than 3 min walk from Dexa beach. What could improve: more attention to detail (some construction done in an amateur way; loud workers fixed aircon of room next door at 08:30 in the morning; garden could be better-maintained). I do not regret staying at Forkis, but with a bit of effort this can become high-end.
