We spent six amazing days staying at the Villa Nestors at the end of August 2012. Nestors has a spectacular 180-degree view of the Messenian gulf, Mani mountains and nearby Koroni Village from the amazing balcony. A typical day involved waking up and watching the sunrise over the Mani mountains and listening to the ocean in the distance. We loved the fresh bread that Paul provided every morning, before a short walk to the beach and swim in the ocean. We had complete silence and it was one of the most relaxing vacations!
The Villas are simple, but clean, and nearby a local greek town (although not walking distance) with shops restaurants, cafes, etc. The area is amazing. With a car you can explore the entire coast line. Villa Nestors was extremely private and Paul and his family were extremely helpful with providing any advice we needed.
Our only suggestions for improvements would be to upgrade the beds to more comfortable mattresses and more kitchen equipment.
Regardless, we would recommend staying at the Saint Friday's Holiday Villas without any reservations, and we hope to return ourselves.
