“We chose Constantine's house for a second consecutive year for our summer vacations .... The important criteria were, the proximity to the excellent beaches of the wider area, the comfortable spaces of the house for a family stay, and its contact of our baby with the pets and fruit trees in the garden of the house !!! As for the host and his family, I have to say that we feel like we are going on vacation with our relatives! We were hugged from the very first moment, hanging out and we felt like family members too! The house is equipped with everything you need to cook .... The host is always willing to ask for anything .... The space is clean with sheets and towels to smell ... The fridge is stocked with breakfast items. .... The kitchen had various spices and olive oil ..... They were all wonderful and if there were more stars I would happily put them on!”
Το σπίτι αυτό είναι ιδανικό για να απολαύσεις το καλοκαίρι με πολλή θάλασσα, προσωπική ελευθερία και απόλυτη ιδιωτικότητα. Τις ώρες που έχεις χορτάσει το μπάνιο και τον ήλιο στην οργανωμένη παραλία της Γλύφας, που απέχει μόλις 400 μέτρα, ή στους βραχώδεις κόλπους λίγα βήματα πιο κάτω από την αυλή μας, η ησυχία κάτω από το χαγιάτι του κήπου, δίπλα στα λουλούδια και τα έργα τέχνης της καλλιτέχνιδας θείας μας Μαρίας, σε περιμένει για να γαληνέψει την ψυχή σου. Ιδανικό για οικογένειες με παιδιά.

“Soula's house was a great place to stay and she was the nicest host we ever met through Airbnb. Communication was perfect all along and the welcome dinner was a real nice start of our beach holydays. Being 7 persons (with our children all grown up) we had to bunk quite closely for sleeping, two of us sleeping on the rather small beds on the veranda. During the da this spacious veranda/terrace offered enough space for all and a great view of beach and sea. Kitchen /all other facilities were well equipped even for seven people (which we find rather rarely). Thanjs for a really nice stay!”
