Other things to note
By Car from Korissia (port)
As you come off the boat, drive to your left to the direction of the port road. At about 500m you will see a SUPER MARKET. You turn right just before the super market, and drive straight for about 100m. Turn right at the first street and then immediately left, where you will see a sigh "Προς Ξύλα/ To Xyla". At about 100m you turn right and go uphill. At the end of the hill you turn left on the dirt road.
After about 5 minutes driving, you turn right at the sign "Melissaki". After another 5 minutes you will reach a dead end. On the right hand side you will see a grey gate. As you enter down the road, Carpe Diem is the last house on the right.
Do not drink the water from the tap !
You can use it for washing and cleaning and it is perfectly safe to brush your teeth but it's not drinkable.
Please bear in mind that water in the Greek islands is scarce…
As the islands often have power shortages we also provide flashlights in the house for your use.
To save energy please turn off the lights when you are not in the house. Thank you.
Most Greek islands have no central sewage system and houses rely on septic tanks. Please do not throw anything in the toilets, as this may cause serious unpleasant problems that may ruin your vacations.
Smoking is permitted only outside the house. Thank you very much .
Common hours :
Please respect other guests and the neighbors and do not make noise during 15:00-17:00 and after 23:00, especially in the pool area.
Please make sure that kids are always supervised when in the pool or around , in the surface where is very slippery.
Please respect the house and the amenities and let us know of any damage as it happens.
Enjoy your stay :-)
I have a passion for Greece, especially Cycladic islands. I love travel, meeting new people, my children of course!, ethnic cuisines, yoga, sailing and books ...
Helping hosts on airbnb and assisting them in meeting and exceeding the traditional high standards of Greek hospitality has given new wonderful perspective in my life, both professionally and personally.
Please feel free to contact me for any help you might need :-)
