kaiti apartments - don't bother

"Situated quite a way up a dirt track .No signpost directing you where to go as there are quite a lot of apartments on this track. No water pressure for a shower, I could have Dribbled faster. Toilet waste bin was never emptied and began to stink after 3 days, Toilet rolls were not replaced we had to buy our own.The beds were so lumpy with springs nearly coming out of the mattress it was impossible to get a good nights sleep and the electric cooker had only 1 working ring which made cooking very difficult.For the money I paid for 2 weeks there I was Not impressed. The Beach at koukounaries was only 5 minutes walk away but there were so many sunbeds on the beach that you couldn't find anywhere to sit and it was the same on all the other beaches on the island. Don't bother booking with Thomas Cook because the reps weren't interested in any problems we had ,all they wanted to do was sell their overpriced boat trips; in fact don't bother with Skiathos at all because it was untidy and very disappointing.I would not recommend Kaiti apartments or Skiathos to anyone. If you want Beaches then go to Fuerteventura, Much better!"

Stayed here last year through Manos....

"Stayed here last year through Manos. Husband was a bit dubious as we had 2yr old twins and Greek accomodation is basic at the best of times and we had no pool (nightmare in his opinion).

Travelled with another family, who have older kids, and between us we had 2 x 2 bed Kaiti apartments, we had the one in the picture. Both apartments are idyllic and well (in the Greek sense of the word) equipped, hob, grill, kettle, fridge, sink, dining area - wouldn't want to cook a 3 course meal but who does when you can go to Georges down the road! Kaiti apartments are situated up a rather long concrete paved hill, among all sorts of fruit trees, but the stomp is still do-able with buggies and a torch, even after several cocktails at Stamelos bar at bottom of hill!

From what we gathered Mr and Mrs Panos-Kaiti own these two sets of apartments - Mrs Kaiti delivered freshly baked cake and fresh fruit to us on several days and changed the bed sheets, when she realised one of the kids had had an accident in the night and I was trying to dry it on the veranda! Bless her, she could hardly speak English, but either she was a twin or her mother was or someone!

We used an excellent pool up the road, can't remember the name, but you have to climb up steps to get to it - it belongs to a hotel, as long as you buy a drink you can stay there all day - Dana the lady in the bar made such a fuss of our twins!

Beach is a leisurely 20min walk through the nature reserve (chased by goats). Beach facilities are perfect, boardwalk at the back (ideal for our buggies), under the trees are little beach stuff shops, bars, loos/showers - everything you need. Beach does get busy for an hour or so at a time when the boats arrive, but they soon bugger off.

Buses are a scream, but the best way to get around, 10mins to Skiathos town.

Tried to rebook Kaiti for this year, but were too late, so staying at Noula.
