Apartment close to supermarkets and excellent restaurants.Main bus station 12 min walk away with excellent connections to all the island's attractions. Very close to rocky swimming areas.Being picked up and returned to airport by the friendly owners, Laurence and Mariella was very much appreciated.
Before I start: This is the most difficult review I have ever written.
Lawrence and Mariella's apartment is absolutely stunning, super clean and fully equipped. The attention to detail is first class - you will not need anything.
Lawrence is a great host and on arrival he met me and my wife so he could explain all we needed to know. This included going to the private underground garage just around the corner where we parked our car.
Entry to the apartments should have been via a coded keypad but this did not work as the security door would not close properly. Also there was another door across the terrace area that should have been locked but was constantly left open - this needed a spring closer fitted. With both security doors not working there was a risk of unwanted guests.
Everything was just perfect for the first night but then things went wrong.
There are apartments opposite where the balconies face each other and about ten metres away. It appears the owner (or person who hires them) will let multiple groups of Italian boys or girls and even overcrowding the apartments. This ended up being non stop parties with loud music day and night with boys shouting off the balconies to their mates in apartments above and below.
A group of girls then arrived in another room which caused the boys testoserone levels to go through the roof.
I contacted Lawrence about this and he did all he could to sort this out. It did get slightly quieter but then my wife endured intimidation from the boys who told her to f' off and started spitting across the balcony. Not a lot I could do about it with so many boys in a gang. In the end my wife would not go down to the grocery shop on her own as she was too scared. There are two supermarkets and an Iceland store about a thirty second walk from the apartment entrance.
In the end we were unable to sit on the balcony looking over the harbour as the noise and atmosphere was unbearable and resorted to sitting on the balcony from the bedroom with no views at all.
The only plus side for us was that when you was in the bedroom to go to sleep all the noise was gone and we slept really good. In the mornings we could use the harbour view balcony as the groups were still asleep from the previous night party.
So this is my review. Like I said at the start the apartment is absolutely stunning but be careful of the months (we were there end of July) you book to stay as you might get large groups of boys or girls staying in overcrowded apartments spoiling your holiday.

Mariella collected us from and returned us to the airport which was invaluable. The apartment did not disappoint being spotlessly clean and spacious. Mariella and Lawrence were excellent hosts and could not do enough to help us to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.
Thank you once again Mariella and Lawrence.
We stayed in this beautiful apartment for 8 days. We were not disappointed in any way. The apartment was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and there was even a basket of snacks and drinks left for us which was very appreciated. Laurence was in contact several times to make sure everything was ok which was also comforting. 10/10. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you Laurence.
