An absolute dream!
What an absolute dream experience it was to stay at this beautiful property! So much so in fact that we are already planning our next stay in this very house and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on the island. Christos is a magnificent host and the property is so well maintained, full of charm, and exudes beauty around every corner. We loved the proximity of the home to both the port and to Kamini. The walk to and from port was peaceful and often involved stopping for a swim at the many swimming spots right by the home. We felt at home from the moment we stepped off the boat and loaded our bags onto donkeys. The sunsets from the outdoor patio are magnificent. There is magic to this house and it will bring joy to whoever has the lucky opportunity to stay under its roof. Thank you Christos and Nopi for making this stay a memorable one. Staying in this house is what it means to experience life on Hydra: fresh food from the garden, terrific sea air and views, charming history within every room that unfolds. We will return many times in the future! <3 Read more

Absolutely stunning property with beautiful views out. Extremely helpful host and housekeeper too.
We were met off the ferry by the housekeeper who arranged for our bags to be taken by donkey to the property and everything else for the stay was made very easy. The property is beautifully set about 15 to 20 minutes walk from Hydra town and is lovely to be in and to look at - decorated simply but with fantastic taste The host, Christos, couldn’t have been more helpful with his suggestions for our visit and we are grateful for a really memorable stay. We will definitely be back. Read more

Wonderful house, exactly as pictured and described
We very much enjoyed our stay at Christos' house. From the first contact he was pleasant, amenable and very easy to communicate with, answering questions efficiently and promptly. The house looks exactly like the photographs and both the interior and exterior spaces are lovely and very well cared for. The various terraces provide shade and views at different times of day and the garden is wonderful. The boat (available at a reasonable extra fee) is an added plus that makes exploring Hydra from the water easy and hassle-free. It is unusual to find such a gem of a house. Many thanks for a perfect stay. Read more

Excellent stay in a wonderful oasis
We stayed two weeks in this property and appreciated the overall experience immensely. Starting with the first contact, the owner, Christos, was very helpful in describing and explaining the property, how to get to Hydra, suggesting good addresses for going out to eat, etc. When we arrived we were not at all disappointed with anything - the photos on the site are beautiful but you must see it in person to appreciate how nice it is with the beautiful view and lots of peace and quiet. The house is charming with lots of different spaces indoors and outdoors. But it also has the modern conveniences of air conditioning in the sleeping rooms, good internet connection and satellite TV. The weather was sunny and warm during our entire visit so we spent most of our free time on the covered terrace next to the kitchen - we think about the view all the time! The bedrooms and bathrooms were fine - lots of linens and very comfortable. We spent some time in the living room as well when it was too hot outside - big sofas, nice TV, air conditioning. One of the bathrooms is in the garden which was practical for rinsing off after a visit to the beach. The house is a short walk to the center of Hydra town - we appreciated being a little out of the center since it was much quieter than in town and that was what we were looking for. The closest swimming spot is just below the house, about 1-2 minute walk. But there are many places to jump in the sea all along the coast near Kamini and on the way into Hydra town. The best place we found to eat was actually the closest: To Pefkaki, on the path to Kamini port - only 2 minutes from the house. Great food and very nice hosts. One thing to note is that there are stairs up to the house and inside the house and between the terraces so it is not for people with mobility issues. But this is typical of every aspect of Hydra so I would say the entire island is not really for people with mobility issues. We highly recommend this property and thank Christos once again for a wonderful and memorable vacation on Hydra! Read more

Charming house on Hydra , lovely location close to the sea
We recently stayed at this lovely old house on Hydra , it is a charming property , simply furnished , nice linens on beds , beautiful outside terraces , three to choose from and well located a ten minute walk from the harbour near Kamini . Christos was a pleasure to deal with from the start and very helpful with everything , Nopi the housekeeper looked after us well and greeted us from the boat with donkeys to take our luggage to the house . We ate many times at To Pefkaki which is 2 minutes walk from the house and for us the nicest place to eat on Hydra . We swam off the rocks just across the path from the house and really enjoyed the views to the sea from every window and eating under the bougainvillea on the terrace . My only criticism would be that it would be nice if more cupboard space was made available for guests and also that the owners personal items were cleared from the bathrooms , but other than this I would highly recommend this property , we had a wonderful time staying there , thank you Christos ! Read more

Amazing views, perfect setting and totally private!
We loved our stay, the views were sublime, the setting idyllic and the interior cool and inviting. Christos could not have been a more attentive host, making useful suggestions and offering insider tips about all aspects of our stay. The house itself was an oasis of calm; rustic but sophisticated and furnished with everything we could possible have needed. Having the boat was fantastic and allowed us to explore every inch of this beautiful island without getting over-heated and footsore and helped us find some wilderness corners to escape to. We'll certainly be back. Read more

Excellent
Très jolie maison dans une situation exceptionnelle avec vue panoramique sur la baie d'Hydra, avec plusieurs terrasses. L'intérieur bien aménagé et bien équpé est agréable à vivre. Les chambres sont indépendantes, pourvues chacune d.une salle de bain. Le seul bémol, c'est le nombre de marches à monter pour y accéder. Read more

The pictures of the house are very good but being there was everything. It’s beautiful, artistic, sensual and comfortable. Nopi, the keeper of the house, met all of our needs. Truly a remarkable experience for all of us. Read more
