“Breathtaking view and warm hospitality”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

We had planned on staying one night, but we so enjoyed our room, our welcome, and the location that we stayed another night. And then - another. It was a very hard guesthouse and community to leave. The large terrace overlooking the sea was enough to guarantee a desire for a return visit, but the warm hospitality made our visit even more memorable. Breakfast in the lower terrace garden with a view of the water through an ancient stone arch was a special treat. We enjoy a number of rewarding day trips, but liked returning to Monemvasia and the Goulas Traditional Guesthouse in the evening.

This is a traditional Byzantine house at the very front of the city, close to the sea. We booked 2 nights in advance. They had asked if we would call to let them know when we were coming, so we called as we were leaving Mycenae. When we arrived, we stopped at the little store & bakery in the town on the mainland, then drove onto the causeway. I was standing by the gate to the city w/luggage while my husband parked the car, & a young woman introduced herself & guided us to the guesthouse. My husband & I were led to a cozy little room on the same floor as reception (room 3). Although the room is small, it has a mini-fridge & we were provided a coffeemaker upon request (they provide nice breakfast bread/cake for your room & have an expresso coffeemaker for all guests right outside our door). There was a cute little round area in addition to the room that I think was probably the cistern for the house back in Byzantine times. It was a good place to park our suitcases. The balcony was large & the kind of place you could hang out on day & night & never leave! This was truly the best balcony & view we had in 30 days in Greece! We had a gorgeous moon, but the most incredible part was the 'gazillion' stars in the sky--more than I have EVER seen! I woke early, & am so glad I did, as the sunrise is also absolutely incredible! I regret not asking the young woman who took care of us her name--she spoke little English but always figured out what we needed & was gracious & helpful. When it was time to check out, Toula, the owner, talked to me on the phone & was most kind. Monemvasia is a must-see on any trip to Greece, & staying on the 'rock', overnight is part of that. If we ever return to Greece, we will return to Monemvasia & to Goulas Traditional House.

Room Tip: If you don't mind a 'cozy' room, ask for room #3, it has the BEST views! But views from...

We had issues getting in the guesthouse. We shoved up around 11am and there was nobody there and the door was locked. Finally the owner arrived and we got checked in into a lovely room with a huge balcony overlooking the sea. Owner speaks very little English, but was hospitable and even provided us with breakfast items to put into the fridge the night before we had to leave early.

Goulas is quite well situated, once in the city, take the first street to the right (literally just next to the main gate) and continue walking down. There's a sign (in Greek) on a doorway on the right side after about 100m and you're there. For Greece it's expensive (60EUR off-season) but so is the whole town.
