THE PLACE TO STAY ON MILOS!
Christine’s seaside home is exactly as described, and even more! Photos show the place as it truly is... beautiful. Christine is a super host, in every way. She answered emails promptly, met us at the airport to transport our luggage, gave us fantastic info on local sites and restaurants, and took great care of us for anything we needed during our five night stay. We were there as two couples, and we couldn’t be happier with our stay, and hope to go back some day! There is a fantastic restaurant next store, called Medusa’s, with amazing food. We had several dinners from them right on our own outdoor dining table! We were concerned the restaurant might be noisy, but even though it’s busy all the time, it was just fine. They don’t play music there, so it’s very quiet. The home has been recently decorated and is just lovely. Air-conditioning in bedrooms makes sleeping very comfortable, and we loved the upstairs patio. The other benefit to this house is it’s central location, although you do need to rent a car, as the village of Mandrakia is just a small, quaint, fishing village. Everything, though, is a short drive away, from beaches, to groceries, to many beautiful sites. We would definitely highly recommend Christine’s place!
We stayed in Christine’s adorable home for 6 nights in June 2019. Christine is a genuinely lovely, hospitable person who went out of her way to make us comfortable and welcome, helped us arrange a fantastic boat tour, and checked in regularly to make sure we were happy and well. She had great recommendations for beaches and activities, and kept us stocked with clean towels and essentials.
Milos is incredibly beautiful and unique. This house and its location were perfect, and we especially enjoyed the beautiful upstairs balcony and outdoor shower. We explored the entire island and everyone agreed we stayed in the best spot. Five minutes to Adamas, 10 minutes to Plaka, and so much to explore on foot. We also floated many evenings in the sea in front of the house. Don’t miss the bakery near the gas station and grocery store!
The taverna next door is very close, and at first we were a bit concerned about the noise and crowd. But then we ate there and met the staff, who treated us so warmly and served the best food we ate on the island. They always made space for us at the restaurant, even when it was busy. One night, I walked over in a wet bathing suit to order takeaway and returned to our home patio with an ice cold bottle of wine and dinner delivered to us within 10 minutes, piping hot, on real plates.
We were sad to leave Milos and will try to return! We would stay at Christine’s home again in a heartbeat.
Beautiful peaceful friendly location by the sea. With an added bonus seaside restaurant
What a wonderfully relaxed experience. Christine was the best host we have had yet. Communication was clear and prompt. Housekeeping services beyond expectations. Highly recommended
Quiet and quaint and best restaurant next door and Christine is a sweetheart!
Unmatched location/Immaculate home
We wanted a small home on the water where we could get away from crowds of tourists and this exceeded our expectations. Milos is a great island to experience, very very hospitable people, gorgeous beaches, the clearest water and every restaurant just excellent. Christina's home is exactly as advertised and the taverna next door has wonderful food, fresh seafood and the waitstaff will deliver to your door! We sailed on our last day with Katerina Sailing (Booked a private, 2-person excursion for 5 hours) and it was equally as splendid. If I could give more stars in this review, I would. Well done!
Thank you so much for this nice review.You were wonderful guests and you are always welcome .
All the other reviews of Christine and her house are spot on. During the many months leading up to our visit to Milos, Christine was very helpful in answering any questions I had about the island and her property. She offerred to pick us up at the airport (we rented a car so didn't need the pickup). When we arrived at the house, she was there (with her Mom visiting from Germany) and quickly made us feel welcome as she showed us around the house. The house couldn't be in a more beautiful setting - steps from the Aegean (with its' own private sea-front patio with table and chairs), beautiful views from two upstairs balconies and the ground floor patio, very comfortable bed in the upstairs bedroom, everything very clean. Kitchen was nicely equipped (Christine had left us a welcome-basket filled with lots of goodies) but we didn't prepare any meals there as we happily sampled many of the island's restaurants (again, several excellent recommendations by Christine). Even though the Medousa taverna next door (excellent, by the way, we ate there twice) is open late into the night there was never any excessive noise. One evening while we were relaxing on the house's patio one of the friendly waiters brought over a plate of cheese pies Christine had ordered for us. A ferry strike stranded us for two extra days on MIlos (actually a nice surprise) and Christine was able to let us stay one of those nights in the house and recommended a very nice hotel in the village up the road from Mandrakia where she lives for the other night. As for Milos - what a fantastic island. Beautiful, unique and varied beaches, over 60 in all (I think we got to about a dozen of them). A couple of times we were the only people on the beach. No crowds like you'll find in Santorini. Several larger villages (the port, Adamas, Plaka, Pollonia, Trypiti) where you'll find most of the restaurants, shops, views, etc. and many tiny and extremely picturesque old fishing villages.
We got to spend five fantastic nights in Christine's house by the sea and if we ever get the chance to return we hope it's for more!
