Wonderful cottage in beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights in June of 2014. I was a bit hesitant to book this little cottage since there were no reviews, but I'm SO glad we took the chance and booked it, because it was a wonderful experience. The cottage is no frills, just a nice sized whitewashed bedroom with a big comfortable bed, a mini fridge and a small wardrobe, a well-working AC, an oven range and a small convection oven which we did not use, and a small bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. It's owned by a VERY sweet family that owns three other rental homes and a small hotel nearby. The parents, Liza and Dimitris, are extremely hospitable. Liza left homemade cake and marmalade in the fridge for us upon our arrival. The son, Alexandros, was also very kind and picked us up at 3:15am when our ferry arrived on Patmos, and drove us to the cottage and showed us around. This cottage is the last one on the water in Grikos Bay, so not many people walk by and it's very private and quiet. The view out to the Bay is gorgeous, and you can walk right out into the water and swim from the porch, which we did almost every day. Liza came by a few days into our stay, cleaned the room and restocked the fridge with more homemade cake. Alexandros drove us back to the port when we left. We were very happy here. A few things to remember: you can't drink the water on Patmos so make sure you keep bottled water in the house. There are several wonderful tavernas a short walk along the beach from the house so this was never a problem. They will sell you a big bottled water for about one euro. Also, you can't park your mopeds right next to the cottage, but it's not a problem at all. We were worried before we went about whether the mopeds would be safe, but you can park them on the beach in front of the houses that are just a few houses down from the cottage. No one will steal them, it's a very safe and relaxed place. Grikos is a great location on the island, with its delicious restaurants like Stamatis, Flisvos and Ktima, and its close proximity to our favorite beach, Psili Ammos, and the beautiful trail full of goats that you hike along to get there. We highly recommend this cottage!

We stayed in Kaliva on August 2017: the place has its own special atmosphere, is quite and relaxing. It make you live as a local and be involved in the island life. Alexandros and his family are warm and supporting, ever at disposal for any support, help, suggestion. We loved our vacation here.

Such a nice time at Alexandro's place!

  • 5 of 5

The place is exactly as expected, With everything you need inside and confortable. You are mostly outside enjoying sunbathing and swimming or just enjoying the view and calm.

It is located in a small village/ Harbor and is very quiet and peaceful.

Moreover, Alexandro and his Family are so welcoming and full of attentions!

We can call it real vacations! We loved our stay and definitely recommend it!

Perfekt Location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage Kaliva at Grikos Bay is a very sweet little cottage, with basic equipment, but everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It's location and the family who own the house, are definately the best you can hope for. It's very quiet and private, with your own little beach right in front of you. Alexandros and his parents are wonderful people, who are very helpful and even picked us up at the port, gave us a lift back in the end and filled the fridge wir homemade cake, olives and water.

The Cottage is beeing cleaned every 3 days, including change of bedlinen and towels. Grikos Bay is a perfekt location to get to know this lovely little island. Everything is about a 10 min scooter drive away :-)

We loved our stay at Patmos and would definately recommend staying at Alexandros accomodations (the family also owns a lovely Hotel and some bigger Villas near by).

Thank you for a great experience!
