This small guesthouse is a wonderful hideaway for one or two persons. It is a short walk (800 meters) to the town of Vathi with its beautiful habour and tavernas, beautiful beaches, and hiking throughout the island. The simple outdoor kitchen is a great place to enjoy breakfast and “light cooking.” Old big olive trees are your ”umbrellas”. It's privately located away from the main house.
“We had a fabulous stay. The little house is stylish and lovely decorated, even nicer in real than on the pictures. We really appreciated the use of the big refrigerator in the pantry behind the studio. The two terraces are great. So private and quiet, one at the back with a great view and one at the front with a view on the lovely orchard with the olivetrees. The two outside kitchens are perfect to make simple meals, all the basic equipment provided, as well as olive oil, salt, sugar and herbs. Allthough the location is very private and feels away from it all, it's only a 10 minutes walk to the port. The shower is excellent, with hot water all the time. And last but not least, Inge is really a remarkable host, most welcoming and helpful. She clearly loves Ithaka, knows everything about it and is always available for information and tips. Inge, thanks for a lovely time!”
The house is located on the picturesque beach of Cavos, in Ithaca (The beautiful and Pleasant home of the Homeric Odysseus.), 600m from the city center with Odysseus statue and 700m from the beach of the Dexia. Located on the sea overlooking the bay of Vathy and the picturesque island of Lazareto. Traditional Mediterranean house with 2 bedrooms, living room with balcony next to the sea, kitchen, bathroom and backyard. Suitable for companionship, boat owners and family.
“We had high expectations from the photos and reviews of Cavos, and were certainly not disappointed in any respect. Nikolasos and his wife were there to greet us and hand-over the house and were on hand to help at all times - they clearly genuinely want their guests to enjoy their stay as much as possible. Cavos is perfectly positioned being both in the largest settlement in Ithaca, but situated just far enough away from the centre of the town to be relatively peaceful, yet close enough to be convenient. The sea is an olive stone's throw away and sitting on the balcony is a pleasure at any time of the day or night. The accommodation is well laid out, with a fairly open-plan feel and there is a nice private covered space outside at the back with table and chairs which worked well for our family of four, particularly as we often cooked and ate at the house. Stellios and his wife who live next door and can be found regularly sitting out front are a charming couple and are a useful source of information about the area and places to visit. We would certainly return to Cavos if we are ever fortunate enough to visit the island again and highly recommend it.”
My place is near the center and the port Homeric Ithaca. Reasons that my room will like: neighborhood, light, comfortable and welcoming environment. My space is suitable for couples, activities for an individual, business travelers and families (with children).
“So the house is at the city center but also very quiet because there is a yard. Great communication, good people and very discreet. The house is lovely, spacious , perfect for a small family with lots of amenities. We had water and orange juice at our fridge, hairdryers, fans, AC and a really nice washing machine. You don't have to bring lots of clothes because you can wash them!! Great yard, very very clean, and comfortable beds. A special thank you to Tasia and Njkos. We would visit again!!”
