GUEST BOOK: Well here we are back in miserable old England after a delightfully sunny week at your wonderful property. We all thought the property was one of the best we had ever stopped in and was situated in a most beautiful part of Greece. The thing we all seemed to appreciate most besides the property being perfect was that the area was mostly unspoilt, friendly and was very Greek – like it used to be a long time ago. Nick Grimshaw, May 2006.
I have to say we had a wonderful time staying at your excellent property. The house and pool and facilities were perfect, everything we needed and wanted was available. The Mani area was beautiful, just what we were looking for, wild, remote and away from the crowds, the wild life we encountered was diverse to say the least.
The beaches and towns were beautiful, we ate out most nights and afternoons, the food was plentiful and fresh and people were very friendly. Ian Byrne, May 06.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We did indeed enjoy very much our stay in your house. Agios Nikolaos is still a little paradise!
We found the house very nice, clean and well appointed. The garden is really very enjoyable and the pool is fine, large enough and well designed. So really everything was up to our expectations.
We still love this area and surely we shall be back some day
