Tulip Cottage, June 2013
"This is a delightful cottage overlooking Skiathos Town and having spectacular sea views. Situated just outside the town but supported by Apostolis's great lift service, at this cottage we felt we had the best of all worlds. Comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean, with a lovely pool and facilities nearby, this cottage was ideal for us and we have already booked to return next year. Apostolis and Litsa are very friendly, making you feel very welcome, and are always ready to help. Brilliant!"

"Lovely, private apartments with a fantastic view. The apartments are clean and modern with roomy balconies. The pool are is quietly spectacular.
Apostolis was helpful and friendly, picking usurp from the airport and taking us to the airport on the way to the apartments. He also ran a shuttle service to the town or bus stop.
Regular buses take you to the great beaches along the South coast. A car or moped would be needed to visit the rest of the island.
Highly recommended and we will return!"

Perfect in every possible way
"Came across these cottages in 2011 by luck on the internet and so glad we did, booked straight away and had a wonderful week in July of that year, so much so we have booked another week this year. We never normally go back to the same resort/accommodation but we were so taken with Skiathos and Garden cottages that I knew we would return again. We stayed in pop cottage and I can't recommend it highly enough it was modern clean and the views were lovely even when in the shower you get a sea view! we liked nothing more then after a day exploring coming back and having a glass of wine on the balcony, all the cottages are so perfectly laid out you don't feel your being overlooked either. The infinity pool is lovely, again laid out so that you can take in the sea views.
Apostolis and Litsa are the perfect hosts, they can not do enough for you from picking you up from the airport to the lifts up and down to town daytime and nighttime. If your energetic and it's not too hot you can walk down to town and back up to the cottages we did it just the once it was long hot and hilly but glad we did, make sure you take a bottle of water and stop and have a rest in the shade if it gets too hot. We also hired a jeep for 3 days which gave us the freedom to explore the rest of the island and glad we did, we found some lovely hidden beaches only accessible with a 4x4, scary ride but keep your eyes shut unless your driving of course!! Many lovely restaurants in town to choose from and some lovely cocktail bars to enjoy a cocktail or two! If you decide to visit Skiathos you must stay at Garden cottages."

Sunshine paradise with millionaire views
"We have been returning to Skiathos garden cottages once or even twice a year for many years. Why? Because we love it and have become great friends with the owners Litsa and Apostolis who we met on a sailing trip with them when we first visited the island to see our son when he was working there. Skiathois is our favourite Greek island. Its so beautiful, green and diverse in its scenery with plenty of places to walk and get away from the crowds and a wide choice of buzzy, friendly places to eat, drink and relax when you prefer.
We think of Garden cottages as our summer retreat. Set high above the town they are clean, distinctively decorated, well equipped for self catering - including a private barbeque and there is a fabulous infinity pool to lounge around with fellow guests or have to yourself when others are off exploring the many island beaches.You dont need to move to see the island. You get a panoraminic view from your deckchair.There is nowhere better to stay in our experience. And if you dont want to hire a car or jeep Litsa and Apostolis provide free morning and evening lifts into the town where you can pick up a regular local bus to get around the island or, if you are fit you can hire a bike and pump some iron. You can even get water taxis and there are plenty of boat trips to surrounding islands as well. So if you want peace, beauty and tranquility and to be well-looked after this is the place for you. But remember we found it first. Enjoy."

A little piece of paradise
"We first visited Skiathos and Litsa and Apo's beautiful accommodation at Skiathos Garden Cottages in May 2011. We stayed in Lily Cottage. As hosts they couldn't be more friendly and helpful. We were collected from the airport by Apo and a few minutes later walked out onto our balcony and the view took our breath away. The interiors of all the cottages are fabulous, they are cleaned daily - hotel service in self catering accommodation - who could wish for more?
The infinity pool and area is a lovely place to soak up the sun or shade with lots of seating areas and an honesty bar.
We very rarely go back to the same destination and certainly not just 12 months later but we have fallen in love with this island and had to return. In fact we went back twice last year to Skiathos Garden Cottages - we wouldn't stay anywhere else! This year, 2013, we are visiting in June & in August our children (22 and 19) will join us. Skiathos town is traditional yet vibrant, full of bars, restaurants and shops to suit all ages/pockets. There is also an old and new harbour. There are unlimited beaches on this small island - something for everyone. Each time we return we find somewhere new to visit, another bar for a cocktail, a new restaurant, a boat trip. Try Skiathos and Skiathos Garden Cottages - you will NOT be disappointed."

They call the people who keep going back to Skiathos - Boomerangers - and that's definitely us
"Skiathos is a beautiful island and one of the best views must be from Skiathos Garden Cottages. There are 6 cottages in all, 5 for four people and one for 2 people. All well equipped and each a little different from the others. Each is very private with outside terrace and the five larger have a stone built BBQ. The infinity pool is the stuff of dreamsâ¦.
We met Litsa and Apostolis 11 years ago when we chartered their boat for a daytrip. They mentioned their new venture... they were building a few cottages and my goodness what an understatement. Every Christmas we received a christmas card and watched their progress on their website. When my parents suggested a large family holiday for everyone it was the first and only choice. Our first visit was 3 years ago, 11 of us between the ages of 3 and 70. Our next visit just the two of us last year. We have a third big family visit already planned for July this year and we all can't wait.
The cottages have everything you will need and expect and so much more. The cottages are relaxed and quiet but don't let that fool you into thinking that it isn't a smooth operation. Litsa and Apostolis' attention to detail is second to none. They are the perfect hosts who will make your stay one to remember and one you will want to repeat.
Their website is an accurate representation and what you see is exactly what you get. Some websites misrepresent the accommodation, location, views etc but not theirs, it really is just like that. I am counting the months to our next trip and enjoying a beer in the infinity pool and I know that the view will still take my breath away.
