My mother and I came with my 3 children aged 5 to 9y old and we all had a wonderful holiday. Varkiza has a much more local feel to it than the more touristy nearby towns. The taxi from the airport was easy and cost just under 30 euros. The flat was wonderful. Perfect for a family with it's 3 bedrooms and bunk bed. The view was spectacular from the 5th floor (there is a lift) and being higher up, there was always a pleasant breeze, making eating outdoors very pleasant. There are local shops nearby and a well equipped kitchen for eating in and also plenty of restaurants within a 5-10min walk. The beach was 10min walking distance. It is sandy and you have the choice of a small free beach or several pay beaches that basically provide umbrella and lounger for a small fee. We had a wonderful holiday and I highly recommend this flat, which was perfect for us as a family of 5.

We had a fantastic time at Mary's lovely apartment. The space and the views are amazing. It was a treat for the children to have a room each on holiday and the air conditioning kept us all nice and cool. Mary responded quickly to any of our requests both before and during the holiday. She did the airport transfers herself and arranged for a friend to take us to the Poseidon Temple - a must see.(for a very reasonable fee). The apartment is set back from the sea front, a 8-10 minute walk. The town is quiet without 'touristy' shops, but has the essentials for cooking in and for dinning out. We visited Athens and the island of Aegina, all by public transport - it took some time but wasn't difficult and made for a good adventure. You can get the bus along the seafront and then pick the the coastal tram. The apartment had everything we needed - washing machine and dishwasher, towels, etc We felt relaxed and at home thanks to Mary's kindness.

This apartment is incredible!! The pictures do not do it justice. A lovely homely feel, lots of space, amazing views from every room. We spent many hours relaxing on the main balcony looking over the sea and mountains. The apartment contains everything you could need for a cosy stay, we stayed in and cooked several times. The area surrounding is great, plenty of supermarkets and restaurants and the beach is wonderful. Felt very local, we didn't encounter any other tourists. A very friendly vibe. Mary was extremely accommodating for our stay. We can't wait to go back!

Our host Mary was most helpful and proactive. Mary met us at the airport and also took us back at the end of our stay. This was both cheaper and far more convenient than a cab and a very pleasant and relaxing way of starting the holiday. The apartment is spacious and relaxing. There is plenty of light and the balconies are fantastic places to unwind at the end of the day with the family! We are a family of five with two girls of 14 and 9 and a boy of 7. We found the apartment to be perfectly safe for them. The paintings on the walls are beautiful (and we later learned that they are Mary's own work). The views from the apartment are superb. There is really good Wi-Fi provided which we found to be very useful. The public beach is close and only a short walk away and there are plenty of great but reasonably priced restaurants and shops nearby. Mary even provided beach towels - what a great touch - much appreciated and most welcome! A taxi to Vouliagmeni should cost you no more than 3 euros if you go the quick way over the hill as opposed to the coastal route. A taxi to the nearest metro should cost you about 10 euros. We had a fantastic time in Athens and also took a trip to the Cape where Poseidon is reputed to have been born. A beautiful 45 minute trip by car. If we had a problem, Mary was always on hand to sort things out - she could not have been more helpful. Many thanks Mary!

This was a great place to stay in Vari, wonderful views of the sea, near the seafront but a quiet neighbourhood where you could hear the birds sing. The flat was extremely comfortable, clean and spacious for the 5 adults in our party. We would definitely recommend this home and the host was very attentive and helpful.

I can totally recommend Mary's accommodation! Either the flat or Varkiza are awesome places where we found exactly everything what we needed for a good vacation: clean property with well done floor plan, breathtaking view, near the sea, restaurants, supermarkets and at the same time in a quiet area, provided by a very responsible and agreeable host!
