“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

If you want value for money self-catering with the friendliest people in Skiathos then this is the place for you! Dimitri is the ultimate host who cares passionately about his guests. He always has a smile on his face, knows your name from Day 1 and spends all of his time ensuring that you're being taken care of. Don't expect state of the art accommodation...this is a small Greek island after all! What you will get is a very basic 'everything you need' type of experience; very clean, very practical and quirky beyond belief. If you expect everything to match then this isn't the place for you but we loved every minute of it! We are already looking to book our return to this beautiful island and are set on making Jimmy's Apartments the place we want to stay. We already consider this lovely man our friend and can't wait to see him and his mum and dad next year!

Never been to skiathos before, first holiday away together as a couple and certainly didn't let us down. Great location easy access to Skiathos town by bus, great tavernas around jimmy's as well as in Skiathos. Jimmy is very welcoming and such a lovely man, even if your not stopping at jimmys studios you should definitely come to his bar as he is more than welcome to have you. Rooms are very basic but comfortable. Overall we have made a friend for life and will be back to visit.

I have been to Skiathos several times, but this location is perfect. From the beautiful gardens, lovely apartments with TV and air con. to the fantastic family that runs it all. Beach 10mins walk away. Bus 5 mins walk.
Enjoy a day by the lovely pool with its bar serving drinks and snacks. Dimitris and his parents, Katerina and Nico, are always on hand to help.
There are good tavernas just a few minutes walk away, then back to Dimitris bar for a beer or Ouzo nightcap.

HEAVEN !!!

Fabulous family run apartments. Dimitri, Colette, Nikos and Katia provide a warm welcome to all their guests. Just a short walk to a beautiful beach. Only twenty minutes by bus to Skiathos town. Barbecue night with traditional Greek food and dancing around the pool. Jimmys Studios......feel the love xx

The studios are well run by a lovely family , they couldn't be more helpful or friendly. We have been here 5 times and hope to go back again in September. It's a great location just a few minutes from many very good tavernas and an excellent beach. The bus stop is at the top of the road which gives easy access to other resorts and beaches.

Having read through all the reviews on here, we decided to book our holiday at Jimmy's Studios for the first time.

When we arrived we were greeted by Dimitri, 'Jimmy', who gave us a warm welcome and showed us to our room.

Our apartment was absolutely immaculate and had everything that we needed.

The gardens that we were surrounded by are absolutely stunning and you will find a lot of Jimmy's hand carved pieces of work dotted about too!

Jimmy by far is one of the loveliest hosts we have ever. We got on like a house on fire and he absolutely made our holiday. We have become great friends and hope to be back in the near future to see Jimmy and his family again.

Be sure to ask Jimmy to make you a war cloud, his signature cocktail!

If you are considering going on holiday to Skiathos, book a holiday to Jimmys Studios, you won't regret it!
