Let me start by saying this is the first review I have ever been compelled to write on Tripadvisor. Most places I have stayed have been great, but nothing compares with our experience at Zakspitaki B&B.
I have never come across more welcoming, helpful and friendly B&B owners than Nick and Helen. They are so proud of the amazing island they live on, willing to help you out if you're stuck for transport and to provide hospitality/advice/suggestions for daily activities. It certainly shows they they both love what they do and the corner of the world they have chosen to live in.
Zakspitaki B&B itself is a charming place - there has been so much care taken in every detail of the restoration of this tradition building. The gardens are beautiful, the view from the plunge pool is stunning and the Zanzibar room possessed such amazing character thanks to the thought and attention to detail from Nick/Helen. Of all the places I have stayed, this place (and especially the room, itself) wins hands down for character, comfort and unique style.
The location of the B&B is perfect - close to one of the 'main' towns on Paxos, but far enough our of the thick of it all to be able to chill out and wind down. Although there are reasonably priced taxis on the island and Nick/Helen were very kind and helpful with lifts, our favourite few days were when we had our 'four wheeler bikes'. This made exploring this amazing island a little bit more achievable. I definitely suggest it!
We hope to go back to Paxos at some point and we wilI definitely stay at Zakspitaki. I am more than happy to be contacted to answer questions about our experience with Nick and Helen at Zakspitaki B&B or Paxos in general, but I'm pretty much just going to tell you to book immediately! You will not regret it.
