George and Marianna, we thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay at your apartment. It was exceptionally clean, bright, and cheery. The kitchenette served our needs well. We were especially pleased that the apartment was in a quiet neighborhood, and yet conveniently located only about 100 yards from the busy seafront. Thank you for a very enjoyable vacation. You were gracious and hospitable hosts.

We really enjoyed our stay at Kontaratos in Parikia, the place is very beautiful and comfortable. it is very close to the beach,shops and also lots of very nice restaurants. George and Marianna are extremely nice and very welcoming. We highly recommend for you to come and stay here. We stayed for a week last year June, and came back in April, as we thoroughly enjoyed everything!!!!


We found the Kontaratos Houses website on the internet when we we looking for a place to stay here. We’ve had a wonderful stay here for the past 7 nights. The rooms are exceptionally clean and reasonably priced in newly constructed buildings. One house, where we are staying, has 4 apartments in the old town, close to market street, shopping, the beach, the port and most everything else this town has to offer, all within walking distance. Their other larger house has 6 studios and 3 big apartments only 15 minutes on the other side of the port, also near the beach. The owners, George and Marianna have been exceptionally friendly and most helpful. If you come to Paros you must stay here with George and Irene.

June 2007 we spent one week in one of Georg and Marianna apartments. Before we get there Georg called as the night before and we arranged to meet at Pounta, where he picked us up in his van. We was met by the most gentle and cheerful Greek I have seen. He drove us to his minimarket where we met his wife, Irene. She showed us the apartments which was in two levels, each with A/C and TV and very clean and cosy. The kids was spoilt by Georg and Irene and even they didn’t talk English (or Greece) they went to the minimarket themselves and was taken good care of by Irene. The apartment was close to the central city and the market street, just a short walk. We had a very pleasant stay in Parikia. And the hospitality from Georg and Irene was more than we could ask for. When we should arrive back home everyone each one of us had tears in our eyes. We only staid for a week, but we get really close to Georg and Irene. Wonderful and hardworking people. As mentioned from others they do not stand at the port and “sell” their apartments. Send them an mail and they will contact you. Georg and Irene have even called us back home. We will most certainly visit then again some summer.

A big thank-you to George and Marianna for a wonderful welcome and stay at their holiday apartments in Parikia during summer 2007. I had a fantastic time and loved the apartment which is very clean and close to everything, the beach, restaurants, bars and shops.
Paros is my favorite of all the Greek islands that I have visited over the years and Parikia has the most beautiful sunsets that I have seen anywhere.
George is a real character and when I visited his shop (That seems to sell everything) he told me stories of his days serving in the Greek Army and Navy and showed me many photos of his lovely family. I will definatley be coming back to Paros for another holiday in the future and will of course be staying in one of George and Marianna’s apartments!!

George and Marianna thank you!


We arrived Paros Tuesday morning. It was 15 years since last time we was here. Paros was just as fantastic as last time, but the greatest experience was to stay at Marianna and George. Nice and clean rooms and beautiful apartments. Everything was fully equipped. The service was top class. If we needed any assistance or help we just went down to George´s kiosk. It has been a fantastic holiday and we know where to stay next year. we truly recommend it Thank you to Irene and George.

I stayed in George and Marianna rooms in summer 2005,06 07 with 5 of my fiends. The rooms are very clean, spacious and ideally located for the main beaches, restaurants and nightlife. The rooms have a/c, kitchen facilities and private bathroom. Booking was simple through internet or by phone and george will meet you at port and take you to rooms. I enjoyed my stay here very much and would reccomend kontaratos as a brilliant place to enjoy the beauty paros has to offer. George and Irene are more than helpful and helped make my stay more enjoyable.


Apartment is in the old town and close to the beach and many good restaurants. The apartment is exceptionally clean and well fitted out with airco and TV. The owners George and Marianna are very friendly and we will definitely be coming back in the future. It is the best place in Paros. Before you come call George and he will pick you up at the port.

I went here with my brother and our girlfriends. It’s very nice. The hotel is close to the beach and near to the center-city of Parikia. George and his wife are very kindly. The hotel is very good with clean rooms and that for a good price. We loved it and we’re come back for sure. We’re from Holland and we love Greece and especially Paros. Greets
