“Room with a view”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

A lovely, comfortable and well equipped room on the beautiful island of Donoussa. Maria could not have been more helpful and the location above the port was convenient whilst having the benefits of being quiet and having a great view.

Rooms are located on top of the hill right above the port. The view is amazing, and spending time in the balcony watching it is a must. Room was really clean, the owners was really polite and there was a mini van to transfer us from/to the port.

Donousa (Stauros) is such a small village-port that everything is really close to rooms. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a peacefull and nice time.


I found it a bit expensive for its objective data, but the view was second to none!

Very good studios, everything you need, very clean Maria is an excellent host. The only down side we found being older travellers, was that it is situated on a very steep hill.
The island is very friendly and the tavernas are very good.
Tzi Tzi taverna is must to visit, Nicola taxis will take you there for only 7 euros.

Donoussa is wonderful and Maria's hospitality excellent.
Her studios make you feel at home with the same cleanless and warm athmosphere as your home. Maria, the ownwr, is helpful and always available, always...

Room Tip: All the stidios have terrace with view...

We have stayed in the beautiful Markouli Studios in Stavros on the island of Donoussa for the past three years and we have just rebooked for 2013. The studios are in a wonderful location with views looking out to sea. The islands of Amorgos, Naxos and Koufonissi can just be seen from the veranda. The studios have that personal touch from the owner Maria, they are really well equipped and spotlessly clean. The studios are situated in a quite area in a quite village on this gem of an island in the cyclades.
Maria is just so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Once we have made the booking Maria will check ferry arrivals and departures to ensure that she is on hand to meet the ferry. I can also recommend the Captains Table restaurant, by far the best in Stavros. After an evening meal head for Corona Borealis Bar on the main beach. Can't wait to get back!

First of all, we're a difficult couple. My wife has had two back operations and needs a good mattress. Furthermore, as I snore, we needed two rooms. After trying a good dozen rooms at two other owners we were grateful to be sent to Markouli Studios. Maria couldn't have been more helpful.

The rooms we were given are just down the road from the ones shown in the photos and newer. Maria speaks excellent English and was always happy to pass on her knowledge of the island of her birth.

We spent 5 happy nights overlooking the sea and were sad to leave the island.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to refuse a room and ask to see others.

We spent 3 nights in Markouli Studios in Stavros (on Donoussa Island, Small Cyclades) and it was really great.
The owner is very friendly, very helpful, she ensured us both port pick-up and organised taxi when we wanted visited remote beaches at the North part of the island.
The location of the apartments are very good, this area is very quiet, there is a good view to the port. Stavros centre and Stavros local beach are around 5-7 minutes walking distance.
The apartment is very good equipped (e.g. iron, ironing table (!), clothes-horse, torch, etc.) and it has a normal size kitchen and bathroom. Cleanliness was perfect.
We were fully satisfied with everything, so highly recommended Markouli Studios in Stavros on Donoussa Island.
