Had the best holiday at Asteri with George and Mina. Great, easy to access beach and main street. It was a quiet location and nothing was a problem in regards to assistance to help make my stay wonderful. Highly recommend for a great place to stay.

Just got back from Asteri after our umpteenth visit there.
I have just returned from one week staying at these apartments, and I would like to say I had the most fabulous time Ever!! Fantastic location, lovely and clean, people absolutely amazing so friendly!! I cant rave over it enough, very safe place to go as a young girl in my early thirties, I am definitley going back to the Asteri apartments very soon. (And I usually dont like to go to the same place twice) I have NOT one complaint!!! Very central to everything too.
myself and my partner and our two boys aged 5 and 2 stayed at the asteri apartments for two weeks in july 2006.after a very long delay due to the aeroplane engine failing and being re-directed to another uk airport for an 8 hour wait we arrived very tired at 8am in the morning. george the owner was waiting for us and was genuinely concerned as to where we had been!he helped us up to our room and showed us how to use the air con and made sure we was settled and knew were everything was.we found him very warm and friendly throughout our stay.his wife often made biscuits for our sonswe would use the pool at costas every day which was perfect for our boys as the smaller pool was very shallow.dennis andhis family were very eager to pease and were v entertaining our boys loved him and the animals they keep.the room at asteri was ideal and we had a lovely view from our side balcony.all in all we had a fantastic time and would recommend these apartments to any bodythey are ideally located far away from a main raod down a quiet side street within close walking distance to both the beach and all the bars and restaurants kalamaki has to offer.will def return 1 day
does anyone know the phone number for these apartments?
George is a smashing guy, always willing to chat and help when needed. Appartments are basic but clean. But then what time you spend in the appartment is minimal. The Costas appartments next door have a very nice pool and bar, and the beach is only 10 minute stroll away.
A good location as your Kalamaki base.
eleanor, judy, phil, paul, raymy, poppy and katie would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at costas and asteri as they are all so kind especially to poppy and katie aged 4 and 10 poppy is returning to marry dennis see you next year loadsa love eleanor x

Cant wait to see you's all again possibly this year and definately nextlove you's all Stevie Andy Ashleigh Lesley and Micheal xxxx
What can i say George waiting on arrival, He remembered me from two years ago. Even had the same room. Rooms basic but clean with security boxes. George and his staff do a great job with looking after rooms and always make you welcome. You have use of Costa's pool and bar across the road and are handy for all local amenities. It's a lot quieter at night than it used to be, what with the noise from Down Under and the Cockerels, there isn't as many as they used to be.
Thankyou for a fantastic holiday.
We came back from asteri on August 20th after spending two brilliant weeks there.My mother came with us and she relies on a wheelchair to get around.There was no real problems getting her around in the chair.George who runs the apartments was wonderful.So helpful and nothing was ever to much trouble.The family who own and run Costas across the round are just the same.There is a lovely well cared for swimming pool,good well prepared food and very helpful and friendly staff.I would go back tomorrow if I could.We had one of the best holidays we have ever had,and a great deal of it was down to the friendly,helpful,happy and genuinely nice people there.Top marks to Asteri,Costas and Zante.WE WILL BE BACK.
We just had a great time here. Its just a nice distance from the main road. Easy access to all shops, tavernas beach and hills. Lovely pool and nice atmosphere around the place, though watch out for the towels on the sunbeds at 7am with no-one there!! Would definitely go back. Only drawbacks - 1]ridiculous time we had to be out of our room by [9am] even though the coach pickup wasnt till 5 and the flight wasnt till 9.30pm.; 2]the elvis impersonator across the road who was on every three bloody nights from 10 till midnight.; 3]the fairly pricey air con; 4] the cockerels and dogs which started around 6am; 5] but the worst animals were the deplorable Scousers across the way giving Brits a bad name who woke everybody up at 4 in the morning with their screaming and swearing. They should've stayed at Laganas!You know who you are! But it didnt spoil a great time. Lovely time and everyone so friendly. Cheers, George, and regards to Patra!

He liked to chat about your how or where you spent your day. would definitley recommend these apartments. it has been 20 years since we last came to kalamaki, saw a huge difference, people still as friendly. had my 40th birthday her 20 years ago, now just had my 60th, will i be back for my 80th, who knows.

GEORGE THE OWNER COULDNT BE MORE FRIEINDLY!! NOTHING TO MUCH BOTHER AND VERY GOOD ENGLISH HE SPOKE. WOULD DEFO RECOMMEND. BOOK NOW FOR A FAB HOLIDAY.
The area this appartment is situated in a good quiet plce apart from the cockrels on a morning. the rooms were cleaned every day and sheets every three days.george is quite funny he forgot to give us the air conditioning remote so we were sweating for to nights. he also found our passports for us as we left them on the bus.thanks george. he said hello on a morning and have a nice evening when you went out.the pool is a good place for kids and its safe.the staff in the pool are very funny.the hotel is just a stretch off the main road where everything is situated. The chicks are very cute that run around near the hotel.
Wow what a greek exciting holiday i had. It was a holiday i will never forget. The people were nice especially George who helped us out a lot. The bar peple were also very fun and a good laugh to be with, along with Dakis and Dennis they are also brilliant with children, they make the children very happy. The same goes with the costa family they are fabulous people to talk 2 most of them talk greek i understood them but also the can talk good english.The food was delicious we made a lot of funny friends and this greek experience has gotten me over my problems.There is a swimming pool for adults and children a pool bar and greek activities take place every wednesday which made the holiday extra exciting. Me and my brother Costa will be back next year for another fab holiday at the asteri appartments. We say hi to all the costa family! You were the best!
I stayed at asteri apartments with my mum and my brother. The staff were really helpful, especially George who helped us with a few problems such as the air conditioning because it was rather hot in the room. It was easier for us because we are greek and we understand the lovely people. I must also say that there were a lot of activities for adults and children, such as the greek nights that took place every wednesday night. The greek proffesional dancers advise you to dance along. The food was absolutely delicious. The costa family were great fun to be with especially the bar tenders dakis and denis them two are great fun to talk to. I am definately coming back next year with my family. I must advise you to bring your own kettle. You must not drink from the tap due to dirty water. We had the time of our lives thanks to all the staff and we miss them so much. But remember this is a big fat greek holiday to everyone.
Just came back from the Asteri Apartments in Kalamaki and we had a brilliant time. The weather was superb for the 2 weeks we were there. The apartments are basic but you have everything you need for your holiday. The apartments are clean and George couldn't do enough for you, I would highly recommend these apartments if you want a affordable holiday in Zante.
