We booked a 2 bed apartment - booking direct rather than through an agency. The apartment looked clean. It had a full cooker as well as coffee machine and kettle, a fridge freezer and a table and 4 chairs as well as a settee. One double bed and two singles and both were short, if you are taller than 5ft...

The location of Zest rooms is really, good just a few minutes walk (and we were carying a toddler as well) from the fabolous Xi Beach. The price for august (70 eur per night) was value for money as well, given the prices that nearby hotels were charging. Petros and his lovely parents are excellent hosts. We were greeted at...

Lovely, large apartments that are very clean and well maintained with Petros and family making you feel at home from the moment you land. The pool area was a big hit with our kids and then it's only a 5 minute walk to the beach for a change of scene. There are 4 or 5 great tavernas within walking distance...

We visited Zest villas two weeks ago, myself, husband and 17 year old twins. We rented two apartments on the top floor, one for myself and my husband and one for the kids. Petros the owner kindly collected us from the airport, at no charge, made us very welcome and we spent time chatting to him and his lovely parents....

What a fantastic little gem. Christen Petros and the family were extremely welcoming. The apartments were lovely and clean with lots of added little extras. The cleaning was superb. The resort is pretty with a handful of nice tavernas and a lovely chill- out bar on the beach with a decided lack of drunken english. Highly recommend this place. Thanks...

Family run and well thought out. Simple things like a tooth brush holder, washing up liquid and postcards in the room made for a good start. Very warm welcome. Everything worked, clean and tidy. Peaceful and far enough from the big hotel so their night time entertainment can't be herd. Very close to the beech, a few resturants and a...
