It was a lovely family run pension, Mrs Koulas was very kind to pick me up from Saint George beach instead of the port so I could save some time to go back to the port and back to Koulas. I was a bit tired from my trip in Athens, Santorini and saint george beach with two little kids, I could really relax here feeling the warmth of the MOST KIND family in Greece. It is not just something they had done for us, but you can just feel the warmth and outstanding hospitality.
I loved my first room on the 3rd floor studio with kitchen, it was a spacious room with everything I needed to cook my kids meal, with two balconies one overlooking the distant beach. The double room on 1st floor which I stayed for 2nd and 3rd night was a bit smaller, without kitchen but with a small hot plate and pot to boil some water and it didn't really had nice air flow, the first night I stayed in the 1st floor room, I found out the air-conditioning was not working but it was very late at night, I didn't wanted to wake them up so I slept with the windows open which didn't really helped a lot, there were some mosquitos but they were not so strong, they should bite you but the next morning it is like nothing happened. The next day I told them there's something wrong with the air-con, they called the technician right away and it was fixed by 2pm.
The swimming pool was just perfect for my little ones, each aged 4 and 2. It was only 70 cms deep in the kids area and still have enough room for the grown ups to cool down. My kids played in the swimming pool most of the time, the hammoks under the tree was also great for them to play.The free wi-fi was fast enough for me to upload some pictures, the beach was about 10 minutes away on foot, but it had some shade with trees along the road and there were some goats, lambs, turkey chicken and cow to entertain my little kids. Try feeding them with some leaves from the tree around.
I didn't have a car and it was a bit of a walk (about 15 minutes) to the nearest store, but I could buy some eggs and other necessaries from the snack bar they operate and they are serving some snacks and drinks there as well with very reasonable price.
When I went to the beach I ran into Mrs. Koulas and she offered me to take an umbrella from the pension saying they have lots of them. (FYI, It was 6 euros for 1 umbrella n 2 sunbeds at the beach and you don't really need a sunbed the sand isn't really sticky.) They even let me keep the umbrella until I check out.
Every little thing was really taken good care of, I really felt like home. My kids fell in love with Mrs. and Mr. Koulas. It is really kids friendly and warm home away home.
