Είπαν για μας...

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment, upstairs and weren't disappointed. They made us feel very welcome, wasn't expensive and helped us with any request about the room or island. Would recommend to anyone who wants a quiet spot on the island.

Melbourne, Australia

We had two apartments, and both of them really nice! I like to find scandinavian style rooms. Balconies great as well. 1 minute walk to 'baby beach', max ten to centrum. Quiet, stressfree place. We had a baby with us, but no problems. Carried his trolley up and down a few times, but we could park ot downstairs if needed. I liked the fully equippes kitchen since we spent 18 days there... We believe we found the best place for us to stay!

Oslo, Norway

Mike's Place is an ideal place to stay in Antiparos. We stayed in apartment D4 (2 bedroom apartment) which probably had the best views of all the apartments as it overlooked the town beach and beyond. [...] I have been to Antiparos 4 times and this was by far the best accommodation I have stayed in. Highly recommended.
