Couple from Folkestone, United Kingdom Oct 2019

We had a fantastic time staying at Island View House. The owners have gone to every possible length to make this the most user-friendly and comfortable experience; starting with the directions from the airport, access and thoughtful welcome pack, to all the facilities provided. The quality of kit makes it clear this is a house eventually intended to be a home rather than just a rental property. And that terrace is as lovely as it looks in the picture!


Couple from Sandwich, United Kingdom Jul 2019

Family from Broadoak, Canterbury, United Kingdom Jun 2019

Put the kettle on and you're home! This is not your average self-catering property , it feels like a much loved home. Grant and Sandra have previous experience in the hospitality business and it shows. From the well appointed kitchen to the thoughtful extras like some groceries, travel plugs, great TV , scented candles , you feel very relaxed and welcome. Great powerful shower, quality linens and comfortable elegant furniture. Lovely terrace out back with views of Zante. Pin-drop quiet at night. Will be returning next year.

Truly enjoyed staying here, the place is obviously so loved by the hosts. Effortless check in experience and super fast replies from our hosts throughout 🙂 There are plenty of thoughtful touches upon arrival, like milk, butter, some snacks and local sweets, a bottle of wine - everything you might need to get you comfortably settled. The place is located in a small and very local village, while being nice and modern. Everything is beautifully set up and you will find every amenity here. Guests would really benefit from having a car, as then all the local beaches, wineries and restaurants are no more than a 10-20 minute drive away. Without a car it would be a long, long walk. Ideal for those looking for a peaceful vacation away from everything. I felt so recharged after staying here. If you are staying here, I can’t recommend the Kamini Beach Bar enough.

The house is absolutely great. It is visible on any detail it was reconstructed and furnished with love and care, all the equipment is of a very high standard and the house is perfectly clean. This is a house I would like to live in if I lived in Greece. The view from the terracce is just amazing, especially in the evening. But what we appreciate most of all are the hosts and their professionalism and helplulness which is really exceptional. Thank you Grant and Sandra!

We loved this little house in an authentic Greek village. The house is clean and neat and it has its style. The beds are comfortable. Everything is well organised but for us the best place was the terrace with the view of Zakyntos. Breakfast there was even more tasty :) Delicious tea :) A car is necessary for this location, but it is generally necessary if you really want to see the beauty of the island.
