Reviewed July 4, 2013

Just back from Maritsa apt. Very good value for what you pay. Not a lot of space in the kitchen area but was ok. Nice and clean .5 mins from supermarket & another 3 mins to beach. Plenty of sunbeds available & at 5 euros for two beds & a brolly , good value. If you want a chill week or two, then give Maritsa a try. You wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony gives you a sea view.

great owners, lovely setting if you are at the back location ok if you like walking, a lovely small harbour a walk away with plenty of bars and eateries, quiet place if relaxation is what your looking for,as Maritsa does not have a pool you are able to use Manolis which you see on arriving at Maritsa.
Lovely Beaches if you like watersports plenty to do.

we stayed at these apartments in may and we could not fault the owners they were always on hand and very helpful apartment was spotlessly clean typical greek standard but we did have kettle and toaster 5 min walk to nearest supermarket and bars etc use of pool next door were you got drinks and snacks so no problem there kefelos is a beuatiful part of the island and the marista is a fine base to stay although it is at end of resort this was not a problem for us a nice walk down of an evening to fine restaurants the three brothers is a great place to eat food good and owners very welcoming and freindly. Rate this property on our last day we asked to keep room on as we had late pick up were willing to pay but marista would not take anything from us Super servive from Super people cant wait to go back .

In summary: I had a good four-day stay here in August. It's simple accommodation that is excellent value for money but not for you if you like a lot of luxury.

For a studio for one or two people the accommodation is basic but well sized. Tidy and clean although not new. Beds comfortable, 2-ring hob, kettle, sink, en-suite bathroom.

Air con available at a reasonable extra cost but which is quite fair considering the room price (and the owner also waived the small fee for use of the room's safety deposit box).

Owner very friendly and helpful. Small supermarket just down road. Swimming pool not on this site but one in the appartments next door (which also has a small bar and some food), which people are welcome to use, I guess the quid pro quo being that one should buy drinks there.

Additional pro: quiet, at edge of town (5-10 mins walk)
Additional con: as is apparently common in Greece, the shower had a wrap-around curtain and did not have a hook for the shower head. Shower water may be cool early in morning and late in evening (I didn't mention this to the owner so this may change).

For those coming in from airport via bus, the driver should be familiar with it, but it not it is just 5 mins walk uphill from the 1st supermarket as you drive into the sea front), Note that this is in the part of Kefalos that runs along the sea front (apartments about 10 mins walk or so from sea) rather than up the hill in the older village itself.

Kos is beautiful, soft sandy beaches, clear blue sea. Visited in September and there was a lovely breeze off the sea. Stayed at Maritsa Apartments, unfortunately they were shabby and dusty (we were put in a three bed, and moved to a two bed, after 3 days). We could use the facilities at the Manolis apartments close by, which have a lovely pool, so no chasing the sunbeds at dawn! However Manolis have more noise from the lorries and bikes on the road. Enjoyed a lovely holiday which was down to the Island, and friends we met. Location was on a main road but you can walk down to many very reasonable restaurants. We would love to go back to the Island but not these apartments. On the last day Maritsa could not give us the late occupancy, but another guest offered us the use of their shower before we left at 5.30pm, Maritsa was reluctant to let us have one towel to use, doubtful that she would get it back. Check out the photos.....

Room Tip: Pot luck! We stayed in 2 out of 12 and they were pretty much the same.

We arrived fairly late but Maritsa was up and waiting for us. I walked to the next door accommodation to scrounge up some sugar for the tea. They gave me some which was very kind and then that friendliness continued for the rest of the week wherever we went.
There was a review that said the supermarket was a good distance from the studios but it is about 1/2 a kilometre down the hill on the opposite side of the road. Open 8-12 midnight.
We didn't do the sightseeing thing but walked to a restaurant for breakfast the to the beach. Then lunch and back on the beach.
Some of the property looks scruffy and some is unfinished but all of the restaurants were lovely with good food and not expensive.
We were on the ground floor and I think we would have preferred to be upstairs as you get a little outside space to sit. We also had 2 beds which wasn't great for a married couple.
It seemed reasonable to have A/C which was extra (€50 with the safe)
