On first dealing with Ioannis, the owner of these apartments, I was impressed with his speedy response to my request for information. Upon meeting him, I was even more impressed. He picked us up from our ferry and drove us to our accommodation: we were not disappointed. The studio apartment is very spacious; containing all the facilities you need, including a coffee maker, kettle, fridge with ice box, air conditioning, a TV and even a drawer full of games. However, the best feature for me was the balcony which was huge (about the size of the studio) and had a panoramic view of Batsi bay. You could have spent the whole holiday in your balcony and you would still have had a great time! There were comfortable, cushioned seats and even a sun bed!
The bathroom was fully tiled and very clean with hot and cold water and if you preferred to cater for yourself, there were cooking facilities with plenty of crockery and cutlery. In fact, the supermarket was literally next door. In fact, in terms of location, this property cannot be beaten. There are one or two good tavernas within view of the accommodation and plenty more about a two to five minute walk away - so much so that we could never decide which one to choose!
Ioannis is a lovely man with a lot of experience in travel and tourism from when Andros was a package destination with the more 'niche' package companies (who have sadly now dissolved) and this was apparent in his professionalism. Sadly, the beautiful island of Andros has suffered and deserves our attention. It is perfect for the more discerning traveller who either likes beautiful walks or wants complete relaxation in a beautiful island where you can mingle in with the locals meeting up for a coffee and a chat. It is easy to get to with regular daily connections from Rafina port and takes only two hours on a regular ferry, all of which can be booked online if you prefer.
The price of the accommodation was also very affordable - especially consideration the location which is amazing.

I stayed here for a week. The room was clean and fresh with a massive terrace that over looked the bay. There was tea making facilities in the room. The room was cleaned regulary . The location is quiet and as a light sleeper this was important to me.
Yiannis was a wonderful host and he was very helpful.
The town is a coach drive away and it is very Traditional and quaint. Andros is an amazing place very quiet with just enough to do. Great restaurants and bars.
Loved it and would go back and stay in Bella Vista.
