It's a bit of a hike from the ferry port and the heart of town, but worth it when you see the view from your room. The whole of the bay stretches out before you. Plus it's just a ten minute walk downhill to the beach and a very nice restaurant (Tango Mar).
There was a bit of a hic-up upon arrival at the ferry dock. We were supposed to be met by the Paradise mini-bus. It was there, but somehow in the confusion and bustle that accompanies any Greek island ferry disembarkation we missed our lift. We got a taxi (just €4) instead. It's too far to drag a suitcase to Paros Paradise in the midday heat of a Greek summer.
We were a bit early and had to wait about 30 minutes for the room to be made up but it gave us the chance to chat to the owner and get the low-down on Paros and Parikia town. He phoned our pre-booked quad bike hirer and arranged for them to come and collect us next morning.
The ground floor room (No.3) was comfortable, clean and bright. With a sunny balcony and views across the bay. The small kitchenette was equipped with a two ring hob, fridge, electric kettle, sink and enough utensils and crockery to get by. Everything worked and we had no problems.
The location is quiet but easily accessible to the rest of the island.
You can walk down to the beach and along the bay to the centre of town, ferry offices, supermarkets and other facilities. It takes about half an hour. However, it's a bit of a trek back with bags of shopping and we were very glad to have the quad bike for the rest of the week. As well as making shopping easier it allowed us to explore the island from tip to toe and catch the ferry across to Antiparos most days.
Our lift back to the ferry at the end of the week was more successful and we waved a sad farewell to our host.
