What a great find. Lovely friendly hosts Marina and her husband are welcoming ang friendly. We went with our two children and it was very relaxing. We were picked up at the port and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us made from grapes from their vineyard. The apartment was spotless with a lovel balcony and great views. The children loved playing in the garden. Would definitely recommend

Staying at Marili was the best choice for visiting Paros.
Marina welcome us at the harbour and then drove us to her beautiful place, we were offered some home made sweets and she explained all the good things to do around the island.
She really makes you feel welcome.
Then we discovered our room, very clean and nice with a great little terasse where we enjoyed breakfast or a nice glass of wine with the afternoon sun.
The place is surrounded by such a beautiful garden and its the perfect to really disconnect from the world.
One night, we wanted to try to grill, and Yannis, Marinas husband was so kind to cook with us and help us with a wonderful dinner.
The best place in Parikia for me!
Thank you Marina and Yannis

From the moment Marina meets you at the port you feel welcome. The apartments are in such a local position you feel part of the island. You are surrounded by their olive trees and grape vines and 360 degree views of the island. Their hospitality is so nice, on arrival Yannis took us to the local supermarket, walked us into his vegetable garden for fresh supplies to make a salad and in our room given a bottle of their own wine. You can sum this place up as great for hospitality, rooms, cooking equipment, showers. We rented a quad with Marina's help and over one day covered 120km seeing the beaches, towns and marble quarry. all just 20 euros. You are best in this place to have some transport as it is a 20 min. walk along the main road to town. there is a lovely 15 min. walk to a wonderful beach - Parasporos. I would definitely come back and Marina says in Sept. you can help with the wine making!! We were slightly troubled by mosquitos so keep the doors shut and DEET on when outside in evening.

Room Tip: Go for an upstairs room for lovely views

Just returned from our vacation on Paros.We stayed at the Marili Apartments.This was the best vacation decision we made,bar none. The place is very clean, friendly and quiet.
The hosts, Marina and Iannis were absolutely great, making as fell like friends and not just guests
The went out of their way, not just for us but for all the guests, to give directions, recommendations and advise as to where to go, what to see,etc.
I also learned to grill, the greek way...wow, that was fun.
We highly recommend this place, especially in may and sept. when Parakia is not overrun by turist.
Congratulations to Marina and Iannis on getting it right.
Regards,
Marius and Ildi

We had the most memorable stay, not only because the apartment and property was great, but the warmth and friendliness of Marili and Yiannis was beyond expectations. The gardens and grounds are immaculate and we were very happy to spend 5 days in the comfortable apartment (Yiannis ceramic craftsmanship can be seen in the pretty tiled bathrooms). It was a bonus to get picked up and dropped off at the port. We had no problem to walk into town for groceries but it was much easier after Marili helped us rent a scooter (which was delivered directly to us at the apartment). As others have mentioned it was a very short, easy walk to the beach and trust me we explored most of the beaches on Paros and it is one of the best (especially if you like waves). We had the most special meal to celebrate a milestone birthday in the lovely dining area, a very special thanks to Marina, Marialena & Yianni for this. We will always remember it. No question we would return and as promised to our hosts we encourage all of our fellow Canadians to check out the amazing hospitality at Marili Apartments.

My husband and I just got back from spending four nights in Paros staying at Marili. Our studio was spotless and very comfortable. The terrace was a lovely spot to enjoy our breakfast every morning or to watch the sunset in the evening. The studios are within very short walking distance to two beaches, Parasporos and Delfini, and it is even possible to walk into Parikia town. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with bougainvillea, geraniums, jasmine, etc. The scent of the jasmine was intoxicating! The hosts are very gracious and kind and helpful. We got picked up at the port on the way there and were driven to the airport on our way out! Overall, a very lovely, special, and convenient place to stay while visiting Paros. Thank you Marina and Yianni for sharing your hospitality and giving us the opportunity to stay at your lovely property.
