Perks for the Parents

This cozy maisonette (2-story apartment) is in the best area of Mykonos for families, close to the beach and has a shared pool. The 2 floors can either be connected or separated, so parents can go out without passing through the children’s section and vice versa. There are 2 lovely terraces for alfresco dining, the upper one with views of the Aegean and an open air kitchen. Kalafatis beach nearby is great for families and there is a sea turtle at Aghia Anna beach that sometimes swims with holidaymakers.

Why Kids Love it

It is close to the beach, which has plenty of water sports activities for older children. Nearby activities include pony riding, cycling and scuba diving. There is a huge garden and a swimming pool shared with the neighboring cottages, but it is never very crowded because the beach is just a 10-minute walk away. It's a great meeting point for kids. They can sleep on the sofa bed in the lounge or use the portable folding bunk bed which can be used upstairs or downstairs. On the way to the beach, there are ponies to ride or feed.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week. The place is secure and child-friendly, although the outside staircase cannot be gated and there may be minor child hazards on the upper veranda. There is an indoor staircase leading to the bedroom too. The pool is unsupervised; from the upper veranda, parents can see their kids playing in the pool, however. Satellite TV, WiFi, washing machine, iron board and more are included.

About the Location

Kalafatis area is the family area of Mykonos, far from the crowded city and close to the greatest beaches, on the east coast. Kalafatis beach (200 metres away) and Kalo Livadi beach (1.5 km away) are the best beaches in Mykonos for families. The sea is crystal clear and has easy access. The beaches are sandy and there are umbrellas and sunbeds, as well as areas where you can put down beach towels and enjoy nature. There are restaurants and tavernas nearby plus a supermarket and doctors. Mykonos airport is a 20-minute drive. Car hire recommended.

Accommodation Details

This maisonette has a spacious living room with dining area for 6, lounge with 2 sofa beds, and open kitchen, plus laundry area, WC and shower on the ground floor, and a large double bedroom on the upper floor with a bathroom. The upper level is accessed via whitewashed stairs at the front of the house. The upper veranda has an open air kitchen and seating for 8. The downstairs veranda has a table for 6. There are separate entrances for each floor.

Style Notes

The cozy, welcoming apartment is decorated in traditional style with Aegean white, the light blue of the Greek skies and the tan/natural wood of the surrounding habitat. It’s a classic Greek combination. The walls are hung with original works of art. We love the outdoor eating areas and the bright white master bedroom.

Mykonos, Greek Islands

Windmills, yacht tours and beaches

This arid, sunny Cyclades island, 25 minutes by plane from Athens, is known for its nightlife and its cosmopolitan scene. But insiders know that there’s more to the island than its reputation suggests. With sandy beaches, 16th Century windmills and sensational sunsets, it’s got typical Greek appeal. Enjoy geckos scaling the walls, sunset cocktails, black olives in Greek salads and days spent at the beach.
