Excellent place. The house is just like on the pictures, you really get what you see on there at the time of our stay. We found the place to be the perfect combination of quiet and remote but yet well located. Plenty of Taverns, Grocery shopping within your 10-15 minute by car ra…

The house is in a small village and is a quite and comfortable place where to have a rest after a day at the beaches or hiking. It is close to wonderful locations and is ideal for families. Our children loved the house. The host is very nice and takes care of you with a warm welc…

Menalaos was accommodating to our changing schedule. Even though GPS coordinates were provided, the house was difficult to find the first night (in the dark), especially since we didn't know what the house looked like from the outside. The area around the house looks abandoned …

Response from Menelaos:
First of all, before I answer to all your malicious inaccuracies, just a small suggestion. Learn how Airbnb works... Now, let's proceed further. I guess "accommodating to our changing schedule" is the new way to say: "I told the host that I will arrive 8 in the evening nut eventually I arrived 2 in the morning!" My parents were to greet you but after waiting for 4 hours they decided to leave since my father is 78 years old and got too tired. He was not obliged to wait for you until the next day... Secondly, you forgot to mention that I provided to you a very detailed pdf map with written details and also photos of every turn and junction from the highway until the front door. Also in that pdf there was an external photo of the residence. But I guess you did not even bother to check your email inbox... Thirdly, you mentioned there was half a watermelon in the fridge. It was for you, every time I greet the new guests with something to eat, you did not come on time so I was not there to prepare it for you. We left it in the fridge so you can eat it the next day... I guess I had to give you specific instructions on how to eat it, Or I should personally come to feed it to you, maybe.. Fourthly, 20 meters off the house there is a huge green municipal trash can. Maybe you thought it was my job to empty your trash inside for you. If you need instructions for this also, I rest my case... Also, the cleaning fees are for delivering the building clean and cleaning it for the next guests. If you thought you would have a cleaning lady every day you should have booked in a hotel. You stayed for just three nights and the cleaning lady found worms in the trash can for gods shake! Fifth, the pack of neighborhood dogs you mention, is a lovely puppy that comes for cuddling. If you get scared of it you understand that something is wrong with you... Sixth, you mentioned the leak on Friday. I called the plumber and he came on Monday and fixed it. Finding an available plumber on the spot is not the easiest thing to do in Greece in the middle of August. Seventh, you said there were not any instruction about the wifi password. Obviously you are so arrogant and did not check than in my airbnb listing in the instruction manual section I specifically mention where the password is, not to mention that I send you also where it is through an SMS... Eighth, there is not air conditioning in the house but it is also not listed in the airbnb site. You should have checked it before you booked my residence. Ninth, how on earth I am responsible because you were beaten by mosquitoes? Tenth, you said you did not like the residence because it is isolated. If you had checked my description of the cottage this is written on top that the house is isolated and I use it as an advantage. Again you did not bother to check it. Eleventh, your comment about the duplicate information leaflets is laughable to say at least! Twelfth, all the other guests find it very nice that there are fruit trees in the garden and also they cut and eat from them. Only you, you found them smelly.. You mentioned that you use Airbnb frequently, but your profile has zero reviews, strange... Again if all of my guests were like you I would have to shut down my listing... My advice to you is, either to book in hotels, or understand how airbnb works...

We stayed at Meleanos' place for 4 days. The house is very spacious (we were 5, 1 couple and 3 friends). His parents welcomed us with pastries and the place was equipped with everything we needed from towels and shampoo to salt and oil. We made good use of the barbecue too. We ch…
