“What a great place with great hosts - review - Better late than”
This was second time I visited the island of Skiathos, and both times have stayed at Villa Coco. Janelle and Carla are just about as Greek as non greeks can be, alway relaxed and super chilled - you feel like part of the family from the minute you arrive till you have to leave with a tear in your eye. The Villa is fabulous and as we were two couples absolutely ideal,with the two studious being far enough apart that we could be rude about one another out of ear shot. The highlight of the early mornings was taking a brisk walk round the peninsular with Carla and stopping for the first beer at 7.00 "eerste dop van die dag' On this trip we hired two quad bikes which was the best thing ever - inexpensive ,economical easy to park and gives one access to every corner of the island. The food is always fantastic as is the local beer and wine rounded off with a greek coffee and Metaxa Brandy. The magnificence of the island goes without saying !!! Dont know why I am giving Villa Coco such a rave review as it will be booked up and I wont have a place to stay next year.
Response from the owner Thank you Vaughan and we look forward to hosting you and your party in 2012
Our six days in Skiathos, at Villa Coco went by too quickly. We easily got into the swing of the chilled lifesyle. Indigo skies and crystal clear waters beckoned each morning. Our stay at the beautifully appointed Villa Coco studio enhanced our enjoyment. Crisp fresh linen,comfortable beds, wonderful outdoor shower and hosts Janelle and Calla welcomed us. Easy walking distance to the bus, makes all the beachs accessible. We could not fault anything! Would we stay at Villa Coco again..? Absolutely! We are already planing the dates!
“villa coco – what can we say!”
villa coco - what can we say! for many reasons, this is such an incredible place to stay at. designed and newly restored, in the typically greek style by a talented austrian lady, a permanent resident on skiathos. owned and run by south africans calla and janelle freysen. the location is great since it overlooks the beaches of kanapitsa and nostos, is a 5-minute walk to sklithri beach and taverna, on the bus route and close to nostos beach where you can catch the water taxi for a scenic trip either by day or night to the little harbour town of skiathos - a definite must! the studios are beautifully decorated, comfortable and private with air-conditioning and hot and cold indoor and outdoor showers. staying here will benefit your holiday as your hosts will guide you to places of interest, the best beaches and restaurants and if shopping is on your agenda, janelle knows every boutique in town! we loved it so much, we are going back for another month next year!
Response from the owner Thank you for your glowing review - we would love to have you back next year
“When in Skiathos only at Villa Coco”
My brother from South africa booked our holiday together with them in Skiathos . Not having heard of Skiathos we didn't know quite what to expect . What we found was a green paradise . Unlike Greek islands on the western coast , Skiathos is a small hilly island covered almost completely by pine forest , olive trees vinyards and other green bushes and trees, has more than 60 beautiful well serviced sandy beaches , and only one town , Skiathos town . We were met at the airport by our hosts Janelle and Calla with our rented car . After a short guided tour of part of the island we arrived at our home for the next 8 days , Villa Coco . Welcomed with drinks on the patio and with the most breathtaking view right infront of us of Kanapitsa bay with its three gold sand beaches ,Kanapitsa , Nostos , and just down the road Sklithri beach . Janelle and Calla , old timers on the island , gave us advice on the best beaches , tavernas and hikes on the island . Even without a rented car , taking the convenient bus along the one main road that crosses the length of the island , or the enjoyable taxi boats , it's possible to visit all of the beaches and Skiathos town , which is a fun town , full of tavernas , restaurants , tourist shops , and typicle Greek style houses and narrow side streets . Our private studio with well equiped kitchenette and indoor and outdoor showers was seperate from the main house which gave us our privacy when needed . But on evenings , the guests would all gather with the hosts for drinks and a chat , and on one of the evenings Calla made a sumpuous barbeque for all the guests . All our requests , extra towels or whatever were immediately answered . The only thing that bothered me was no internet . But even that has been remidied . The day befor we left Janelle installed internet . A great holiday at Villa Coco , and we're now planning our next visit .
Response from the owner Thank you so very much for your lovely review - much appreciated and we hope to see you back next year!
“Greek Paradise at Villa Coco”
To try and describe your average day on the island of skiathos would not do the experience justice. From beautiful clear blue sea, long white beaches, sun lounges, calamari, greek salads and mythos beer the island is an ideal recipe for a perfect holiday. Add the cherry on top, accommodation at Villa Coco on Skilithri beach. Just a short walk down the hill to the beach and on the bus route to all major beaches around the island and the main town, Villa Coco was an extremely practical for our stay. Our rooms were comfortable and clean with all necessary items. The best way to end a long day on the beach was to enjoy our cool private outdoor shower or laze at the table and chairs outside our room with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down over the bay. Host Janelle and Calla Freysen are very welcoming and no request to make our stay more enjoyable was too much for them. Villa Coco was the perfect escape for our island holiday!
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your lovely review - hope to see you soon!

Response from the owner Many thanks for your glowing review!
“A week in Paradise”
My two adult daughters and I spent the most wonderful time at Villa Coco in July 2010.The studios were lovely(brand new) and well equipped.Sitting on the patio one overlooked the beautiful bay towards Kanapitsa beach. (I could actually see this view lying in my bed in Villa Coco studio) Janelle and Calla met us at the ferry with our hired car and from that moment on they did everything possible to ensure that we had a wonderful time. Every morning I would either "jog" the peninsula with breathtaking views around every corner or get the girls up for an early swim down in Sklithri Bay - a 2 minute walk down the hill. Villa Coco is well situated on the island as one is close to so many beaches. There is a bus stop just below the villa where one can catch the bus to the famous Koukounaries beach (and many other choices along the way) or into the quaint harbour town of Skiathos.The water taxi at Nostos beach is also just a 5 minute walk and the view as you approach the town is quite spectacular. Sundowners on the patio in the evening,often with hosts Calla and Janelle is just the cherry on the top of an amazing day spent on the beautiful beaches. Calla and Janelle have been holidaying on their beloved Skiathos island for many years,so they certainly can advise guests on beaches,restaurants,day trips etc. They now own their own beautiful Villa Coco and cannot wait for all their guests to experience the magic of Skiathos island. They have drawn from their own holidaying experience on the island to create 2 studios that are clean,comfortable and have all the amenities you require for a terrific summer holiday. A memorable holiday indeed and time spent with my daughters in this idyllic setting is something I will cherish forever.
