While the property had some very nice features, renters should be aware of a few things, and should make some advance requests before deciding to stay here. On the plus size, there are 6 bedrooms, and the beds are comfortable. All appliances are excellent. The view is good, and once you get moved in the location is excellent for walking. On the negative side, we had some unwelcome surprises. The local housekeeper did not answer our phone call, despite our indicating the approximate time of arrival well in advance, and we had to try several London numbers, until finally the owners picked up at the emergency number. The mention in the description of the owners mom as a contact person, and the note that she is a great cook, seems a bit misleading, as she appears to have nothing to do with guests and the property. While most of the house was very clean, you may find some problem ares. The drip section of the coffee pot had a left over collection of grounds overgrown by mold, and the mold extended throughout the coffee maker to the extent that I felt it best to not use it until someone else had disassembled it and disinfected it, hopefully in the dish washer on high heat. Similarly, the refrigerator (both freezer and main part) had to be "de oderized" by setting out baking soda.
I would say that the walk from the parking lot to the place is more than a little challenge. The luggage carry up and down were difficult. The alternative is to navigate streets that were winding and narrow, and on which we had some skidding problems even when they were dry, to get a bit closer. Perhaps one could prearrange to have the housekeeper and her husband either drive and carry your luggage closer, both coming and going. We found it best to park in a lot near the elevator up to the Nafplion Palace hotel if that is full, which could happen especially on weekends, you can go down by the harbor.
So if the number of rooms, the location, and the various positive aspects of the place outweigh the negatives, I would say go for it and take a chance. However, insist on a few things in advance, expecially if you are not fluent in Greek. The housekeeper is more than helpful, but she and her husband do not speak English though she even called a daughter in Romania who interpreted for me at one point!. It would be helpful to havbe a second or third set of keys. To go from the top to the lower floor, you need to go through two locked doors, one at the top and one at the bottom of an outdoor staircase. Also, to get into the property, there is a double bolt locked gate. (Note all locks are double bolted, so you need to turn twice to fully lock, and then twice to unlock.) Unless your group travels en mass to bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, and outside the property, you need plenty of keys. We had an extra set made and left them, so that may help. Also, get some basic information. There is absolutely no information provided. So find out things like can the toilet paper be flushed? Is the tap water OK to drink? (if not note that you will need to carry the bottled water up many hills and stairs.) Where should trash be put when it is full in a canister? Where are extra light bulbs stored? Is there a ladder someplace making it possible to replace them?
A few things that may be helpful to know: (1) there is a Carrefour grocery towards the far end of the harbor (in relation to the house), a bit up one of the streets of the road along the harbor, that has just about anything you might want (2) All grocery stores are closed on Sunday (3)The road to Agros passes a huge Carrefour grocery plus some other big commercial outlets of various types (4) if you need/want internet in the house, Vodophone sells a mobile connecting flash drive device for about 50 Euro, with unlimited connecting time for 10 days they have a store that you can easily walk or drive to in town (5) We especially enjoyed Taverna Byzantio, 15 Alexandrou, as a restaurant. They had a large variety, good prices, and usually fresh fish and good special dishes.
This place would have been much nicer if we had a more accurate understanding of its pluses and its minuses, and had been better able to adapt in advance. With better information, this would have been a "good" rather than a "fair".
