AIR CONDITIONED LUXURY APARTMENT WITH FANTASTIC VIEWS & STEPS DOWN TO THE BEACH
Xiropigado Apartment Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 5/6 overlooking the Argolic Gulf
You will struggle to find a better equipped holiday home than this air conditioned ground floor apartment set on a small cliff above the beach with wonderful views across the Argolic Gulf and the mountains beyond.
Living accommodation is 7m x 7m with the kitchen in one corner. Double sliding doors give access to the terrace and the views. The kitchen is fully equipped including a fridge/freezer, halogen hob cooker, washing machine, microwave, electric kettle, toaster, coffe maker and other appliances.
A door to the rear leads to the bedrooms and the main bathroom. Bedroom 1 has a large double bed and an en-suite bathroom (toilet, shower and twin sink). Bedroom 2 has twin beds and a very comfortable 90cm X 200cm chairbed. A single bed which pulls out from under a sofa completes the sleeping accommodation. On the terrace there is a sun lounger and a dining table with 6 chairs. A path and steps take you to a quiet pebble beach with crystal clear water.
- Two Canadian couples shared this apartment in May 2014 and loved it! It is very clean and extremely well stocked with everything you need for the kitchen, etc. No dishwasher, which didn’t matter to us, but might be in an issue for some. It has comfortable furniture and beds. There were lots of movies, books to read, etc. Having a washer was a must, as we travelled lightly. The washer took a long time to wash, about 2 ½ hours. If I understood Greek I probably should have tried to change the setting. It was set on hot water too, I think, as I had a new orange beach towel that I washed with other items… ha… you can imagine the mess I had. My fault! When we picked the key up from Stavros, he was very friendly and has lots of things in his store! So you can stock up with things right away, if you want. We were a little confused trying to find the apartment, but once we did we weren’t disappointed. Only thing that would have improved our stay was if there had been an internet connection. We were trying to stay in touch with family and in order to do that we had to find a restaurant with Wi-Fi or went to the little café nearby and had ice cream or a drink in the evenings to use their Wi-Fi. This was a wonderful place to stay. This was close enough to Nafplio and central enough to take in some of the other sites, with a bit of driving. The beach below the apartment was a bit rocky, so I was glad I had beach shoes, but it is very private and quiet. We were able to find some beach glass, which my grandchildren save. There was some garbage and broken glass besides on the beach, so the first full day there I did a cleanup of the area. We weren’t far from other sandy beaches, so we took in a couple of those during our stay. We had been instructed to park as close to the small stone wall as possible and we did. After a day or so a neighbour asked if we would mind parking behind the building and we did. It was probably easier for the people coming from his area to get around and therefore safer for our rental. Given the crazy drivers in Greece we were praying to get our rentals back in one piece at all our destinations. I would highly recommend Brian’s apartment for rental. There is nothing negative about it at all. The area is very quiet, there is a lovely view and the rooms can be made so dark you can’t tell its morning! Once you get by the way people drive in Greece, and the stray cats and dogs, this Country is simply amazing!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for your wonderful review.
I am sorry you had problems working the washing machine, there is a photocopied instruction manual in English which should be next to the machine and the original English instructions are in the box marked 'Instruction Manuals' in the cupboard by the front door. Had you found them you would have seen the 'Time Save' option and the different temperature settings.
I am not sure why you were asked to move your car, there is ample room for the neighbours to get in and out if you parked as suggested. Sorry if it was at all inconvenient.
I am happy you had such a good experience and would love to welcome you back if you ever venture this way again.
Jak zwykle z rezerw? podchodzimy do zdj?? i opisów prezentowanych w internecie lokali (z uwagi na niesfotografowane niespodzianki ;) ), prezentowany opis jednak by? na tyle zach?caj?cy , ?e zaryzykowali?my. Na miejscu by?o tylko lepiej ! Apartament czy?ciutki, ale bez smrodu chlorowych preparatów, stylowo urz?dzony i nie zagracony, ?wie?e wygodne sofy, mi?kkie du?e ?ó?ka, ?azienki obszerne i dobrze wyposa?one. Dobrane kolory , czeka?y na nas nawet ?wie?e kwiaty w wazonie!
Kuchnia full wypas, brakuje tylko zmywarki, za to jest cichutka pralka. Sporo dobrej muzyki, plus radio je?li chcia?oby si? pos?ucha? greckich melodii. Oczywi?cie TV i troch? DVD. W oknach siatki przeciw owadom, ?aluzje przeciws?oneczne. Widok z tarasu (i przez okno balkonowe) - bezcenny - pocztówkowy i odstresowujacy :) .
Reszta informacji ju? napisana przez Briana i innych oceniaj?cych. A, gospodarz otoczy? nas równie? wsparciem zdalnym - przez telefon i maile podczas pobytu.
Renting via internet is always a little challenge: you never know what is not said and shown ;)
We were lucky to have found That place. We had only positive surprises: the unphotographed bathrooms were clean, comfortably spacy and well equipped; we found welcome flowers and so on :) . The apartment is stylishly arranged, beds are bid and soft, well selected colors comfort the eyes.
The kitchen is fully fitted. We found good choice of CDs and the radio to listen to greek music :)
There is an insect netting in every window (there were not many of them, though) and wooden shutters. We did not use the air condition provided, because the apartment didn’t get hot too quick (we were in May). The balcony view – magnificent :) . Nice neighbours, charming local shop (Kostas), a few restaurants reachable on foot. The rest is already written by Brain, from Whom we had great remote support during our stay.
Thank You, Ann and Brian!
Thank you Brian for sharing your wonderful apartment with us. Very well equipped, with a wonderful view. the only problem we had was with vodafone cellphone and mobile internet access - it kept dropping the signal, but we understand they are trying to improve service. Thanks for all the good instructions, the tour books, the general ambience.
We hope to come back someday, for much longer, and hope it is still available!

Nearby locations of interest include Mycenae, Tiryns, Epidavros, Korinthos and other remains from the Roman, Byzantine, Frank, Venetian and Turkish occupations of the area.
Argos and Nafplion have good shops. Athens, Sparta, Olympia and Monemvasia are among the places close enough for a day trip
