We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore the beauty of this amazing picture perfect island.

                                                                      We had a lovely stay at Anthea. The house is beautifully equipped and well located, although do prepare yourself for a post Taverna /Restaurant steep uphill slog! The three walkable restaurants are great, but a car is really recommended to fully enjoy this lovely island. Panos, who looks after the house, is quite amazing - nothing is too much trouble and he is full of local knowledge - closer to a full concierge than a house manager. Every holiday home needs a Panos!

                                                                      Great villa with fantastic facilities and ideally positioned for both airport and easy access to all of the island. Beautiful cave villa and very comfortable. Suits families and couples.

                                                                      A wonderful place to escape! It is hilly and to access the cave house and terrace you navigate uneven cobbles, however this is all part of the charm of this renovated cave house. A great base for exploring this small island (2 hours of hill driving and you would see the island) or enjoy a wonderful terrace with pool from which to gaze across vineyards, blue topped churches and mountains to the sea. The only noise came from birds and the occasional helicopter. A place to rest and relax, little touches like the daily delivery of fresh bread warmed in the morning sun were a lovely bonus. Fantastic local knowledge and service from Panos, the best baklava ever from the bakery next to the supermarket and reliable wifi kept our family very happy for the week. Thank you!

                                                                      A group of five grad school friends and I stayed in this absolutely beautiful home that was true to the photos, if not better. From the very beginning of our booking (months in advance), Sarah proved to be an excellent hostess, asking and answering all the right questions in the best way. She arranged for individual pick ups from the airport and provided excellent suggestions for the island. Panos, the villa manager, took it from there. His service was unparalleled to any I have ever received. From stocking the fridge and bringing fresh bread in the mornings to helping us arrange our daytime activities and making sure we got the best prices and didn't get ripped off or taken advantage of -- Panos proved to be our lifeline. He picked up and delivered our boat tickets, helped us get a very cheap but reliable (and new!) rental car, booked the nicest restaurants based on our criteria and then hooked us up with his friends there who gave us excellent attention and service. He was always easy to get a hold of, whether we were at the house or out and about and needed help. Charming and kind, knowledgeable and resourceful, Panos was a huge part of why we loved our stay. The house itself was clean, air-conditioned, and luxurious. The pool and rooftop were fantastic, but it was equally pleasurable to find refuge from the heat inside the house. We found it particularly helpful to have a washer in the unit for our post-beach trips. With a car, everything was very close and conveniently located. Would highly, highly recommend a stay here, and we are hoping to come back here one day!
