5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Myself and three friends arrived in Paros for 4 nights after partying hard in Ios for a week, we had an amazing time here, for the first time thought our stay in the Greek Islands we had a constant wifi hot showers and airconditioning.The owner George is a really friendly guy and was really helpful throughout out our stay,he even dropped us off at the port in his own van.We would highly recommend staying here and if we ever came back to Paros we'd definitely stay here again!
Cheers

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our time there. The first night we stayed at a room on the left of the port, and the next day we were moved to a farther location on the opposite side of the port. Both rooms were clean and well kept with air conditioning, however the second was a bit far from town. It was closer to the beach tho! George picked us up and dropped us off at the port when we were leaving which was greatly appreciated. Overall a great place to stay in paros! We would return.

We recently arrived in Parikia, Paros in late July 2013 and found our Konaratos Studio spacious, comfortable, clean and well maintained, with fresh sheets and towells every few days. The apartment is only a short walk to the beach and numerours restaurants, though a slighly longer walk to the centre of town. George, the owner met us off the ferry, and dropped us back there at the end of our stay. He was so friendly and helpful and he and his family are excellent hosts. When a few things changed with our tour bookings George was there to help sort them out. We were in a different Paris only a few days before and the Greek Paros was such a wonderful antidote in the friendliness and standard of accommodation that George Kontaratos provided.

This place is great value for money, we paid 10e per night and got a whole private apartment. A great change from 8 bed dorms which are the same price. Everything I asked for George helped me with. I was even allowed to stay in the room 2 hours after check out because out Ferry was at 3. I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Only stayed in one room apartments

It is my 5th time coming to paros and this trip was by far the best!!!! Kontaratos is a very cozy spot located really close to the town of parakia. a few minutes walk from livadia beach and tango mar beach. Kontaratos apartments is by far 1 of the best spots on the island just outside the hustle and bustle of parakia night life. I highly recomend these studios for your trip to paros!! location is perfect for the whole family and couples. If your looking for the real greek exsperience this is the place for you!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are just as great but the balcony spots are unforgetable!!

We stayed in off-season, November of 2012 and experienced two of the rentals. One was a flat right in the middle of the old town, with a loft-like bedroom. I liked the character of this one most because it felt more like the vernacular architecture and you were on the classic stone paved alleys and streets that are part of the charm of Greece. If you need space for more people and private bedrooms, they have a place that is more like a townhouse/home with large terraces, further away from the old town (but still within walking distance). Both rentals are walking distance to a beach. Both also have full kitchens, one bigger than the other, but both work fine. When you are on long term travel like we were, kitchens are exceedingly valuable. They were also peaceful and quiet.

I'm not giving it five-stars as for a five star hotel (otherwise such reviews become meaningless; costs should be obvious when one judges what falls in such categories). The top review is for the quality of the apartment matching the great price and above all for the helpfulness of the owner George: he picked us up from the ferry and gave us a ride to it as well when we left. He was always helpful and sincerely friendly: he liked to share his stories and he was interested in us as he was in all his guests, whom he approaches as family. He went out of his way to be generous to my children, and I simply enjoyed his company. After traveling for many, many months, he stands out.

George and Irene are an adoring couple, not knowing what best they can do for their visitors. After visiting Paros numerous times, we choosed Kontaratos once more due to a perfect stay the last time we were traveling here. For our children, there was no other option than to stay with George!
We arrived at Paros after a long journey from Norway, and before we could go to our pre-booked apartment, we were served chilled beverages and food, as we probably looked quite worn out.. This year, we stayed in one of their apartments in the old city, within walking distance to the seafront with restaurants and shopping all over. The apartment holds 4 beds, and were perfect for our family. Irene had long days cleaning all their properties to perfection, and we always came back to our place free of sand, new towels and ready-made beds.
Any questions we have, are well taken care of, with good information where to see, eat and visit. And which landlord other than George calls us to hear if we are safe back home in Norway, call us to greet us happy Holidays and sends pictures from our stay on e-mail?
We love Paros, and will definately go back to George and Irene!

Room Tip: Somewhat more sounds in the city center, but closer distance to everything except the beaches. Misse...
