Blue Oyster - a hidden gem
Judith is a great host and is ably assisted by Toumbe. Nothing was too much trouble for them, reservations for dinner, information on what to do and where to visit. The house is enormous - we stayed in the Mykonos room which has amazing views over the lagoon and the area is 100% safe. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again

The stay at Blue Oyster was amazing. The hostess, Judith, made contact immediately after I had made the booking. The check-in and check out was without hassles.
