“Fantastic Villa, Sublime Views!”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Let me start by saying simply, we will return! Not only is Skiathos a really lovely place to relax, but this villa has everything we could have wanted. It wasn't just the tick box of great facilities, but it was the clever way it is cut into the side of the hill, and sited for maximum privacy - it isn't overlooked, and the nearest houses facing towards it are over 1000m away and a good 50m below. And the view.... any photographs you have seen simply can't do it justice!

Panos & Zaki (the owners) were really welcoming and helpful - Zaki met us at the airport - and responded to any and every query we had. Everything in the villa worked, was clean and was easy to operate. The air conditioning in particular was excellent - an it heats up the air nicely on cold nights (we had one).

But the thing we liked best, was the way the villa made you feel - completely relaxed. Nothing could beat coming home from the beach late afternoon, cracking open a bottle of white wine, and relaxing for a couple of hours by and in the swimming pool; just drinking in the view in the golden light of the early evening, then showering and changing to go out to dinner. And there were a couple of decent restaurants within 10-15 minutes walk; Panorama & Platanos.

If you want to walk to or from the villa, you do need to be reasonably fit, and have good mobility. The villa is sited on a very steep slope, and some of the approach roads (and the driveway) are around 20 - 30% gradients! Tough in a car, murder in the midday sun!

“Paradise in the mountain!”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Zaki 5 was absolutely perfect. high in the olive groves of Skiathos, so the view is absolutely amazing! The Villa upon arrival was absolutely spotless and ready for us to just relax and enjoy our stay. The location is close enough to Skiathos town to be convenient but far enough away to relax in peace and quiet (apart from the sound of crickets and the occasional cowbell from down the hill!) There are two restaurants within walking distance, that I will also review)
The villa has amazing air conditioning which made entering the Villa after a day at the beach or visiting the island very welcome. The infinity pool gives a great view of the Aegean sea, as well as the Town and surrounding islands. There is a great Sun deck, a covered area outside, as well as a private area leading from the Patio doors in the bedroom. The Kitchen has all mod-cons including a tassimo coffee machine, and of course full wifi internet access.
The Villa's owner was extremely welcoming and helpful, giving us great advice about places to visit and local knowledge of shops and routes to the best beaches. Arrangements were made for how often we would like the villa cleaned and we were left to enjoy the use of there beautiful Villa. We will most definitely be returning with confidence.

Liked least: The Bath took a long time to run, but as its a jacuzzi bath the water needed to cover the jets on the side so thats why!
