Maria's place is the perfect location to spend peaceful time and discover Ios. This charming typical greek house offers an unique view on the see, far away from the big parties of Chora. Maria and her husband are very nice and helpfully.

Maria was awesome! She picked us up from the ferry and took us grocery shopping and then took us to the Airbnb. She stopped along the way so that we can take photos. Her place is amazing and so serine. Would definitely stay here again

Maria was a very gracious host. She picked us up from the port, took us to the market, and helped us rent a quad. Her place was very beautiful and peaceful. She helped us with anything we needed, even picked us back up and returned us to the port. Thank you so much Maria for such a fantastic stay in Ios!

If I had to describe my stay in Ios and at Maria's place in one word, I would have chosen the word magical. The house is comfortable and functional, well-equiped, beautifully decorated and cared by with love by Maria and her husband Petros. It is a place where you immediately feel welcomed, you feel at home. The views from the different terraces and the garden are breathtaking and the little extras, like the handmade tables, comfortable sitting areas, outdoor shower, hammock and sun chairs, make the time spent at the house really relaxing and idyllic. The surrounding area is a mixture of wonderful quiet beaches, rock formations and hills, perfect for those looking for tranquility and natural beauty. There is a little white church on a hill overlooking one of the beaches from where you can hear the bells of the mountain goats who are the only inhabitants of the area apart from the few occasional visitors. Seals live in the rocks just below the house and a friendly wild cat will keep you company, if you feed it. There are many great walks in the area and plenty of things to explore on the island. And if the description above has not convinced the reader that this place is a piece of paradise, I will tell you about the owners: lovely, warm, caring, fun couple raising their two daughters on this beautiful island. I went to Ios looking for solitude and did not think I will meet friends here, but people with hearts so big, and hospitality and generosity so genuine are rare to find. Thank you, Maria and Petros, for this magical week. I will be back very soon.

My husband and I had an absolutely great stay! Maria and her family welcomed us at the port, took us to the car rental place and the supermarket. The apartment is amazing, with a well-equipped kitchen and all sorts of beach play tools. The location is very secluded which is perfect for couples and honeymoon. Would definitely recommend it to anybody!

We had a fantastic time at Plakotos! Coming back after 2 years felt like coming home, namely thanks to Maria and her family who welcomed us very warmly. Their generosity, availability and agreeableness contributed, again, to make our stay memorable. The property has been nicely and authentically embellished since our last stay by Maria and Petros themselves, more appliances and amenities have been added to make sure their guests can dispose of everything they may need to be comfortable. What else to say except that we are sure to come back!! Thank you once again Maria - you are a real super-host!!!

We have been in Plakoto house for 3 days in August. The house is fantastic, It's a dream!! It takes from Ios port 20 minutes by car or 40 by quad. The best suitable atv is the car (we rent a Suzuki mini jeep for 55 euros for day ). For the first day we rent a quad but it was no suitable, especially for the night, because the road is a quite tortuous. So we suggest a car. The house is very comfortable and it has got everything you need. It is so very clean. Maria is a fantastic and very cute host. She came to pick up us from the port and she has driven to rent a car and to supermarket for buy the water and everything we need to breakfast. The Plakoto house is so close to Homer's tomb. It has got a unique view. If you want to stay in peace and far to everything, It's the place for you. The relax is guaranteed!!!! Bye bye Mariaaaaa!! See you soon !! Marika and Salvatore
