On The Rocks has a perfect setting, easy walk down to nearby beach or up to town. Modestly priced beach tavern plus many in town options across a wide range. Greek hospitality is on display from the time you arrive in port on Ios, one of the scenic Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea. Its quite hilly so bring some comfy shoes and be prepared for some stunning sunsets! John & Emmanuela have created a bucolic setting, everything from the lush gardens and beautiful veranda outside to the classic Mediterranean decor with every modern convenience indoors. Our 20 something kids enjoyed the freedom of walking to Chora for nightlife and our youngest was able to partake in water sports of every kind at nearby Mylopotas beach. John & Emmanuela went above and beyond in every way, they live in an adjoining flat so communication was easy with no question unanswered. The very reasonable house rules are printed and laminated in every room. They have tremendous local knowledge and were always willing to chat. There are also full time housekeepers who brought fresh bread every day. Bottled drinking water is also provided for the guests. Our hosts made it easy to enjoy Ios to the fullest, while some may wish to island hop and hesitate to book the minimum week during season our family found it easier to encamp On The Rocks and even got to extend our stay an extra day! Day trips by ferry to other Cyclades islands are easy and taxi to port is about €10. We also hired a car for trips to Homers Tomb, St. Theodis and Manganari beach, cost was €25 per day plus petrol. Our stay at On The Rocks exceeded every expectation!
