Wonderful - 5 stars is not enough! Communications, both before and during our stay were excellent. The house was clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. The property is really lovely and well furnished. The location is very good, close to local beaches and only about an hour from Athens by public transport. We were looking for a quiet break and in fact had little reason to leave the property as we had everything we wanted on hand - the view, the peace and of course the swimming pool. (Although local transport is good and cheap, a car would be useful for those wishing to get out more to explore the area) Thank you Eirini for a lovely holiday

The photos don't quite do justice to this villa, it really is lovely, perched on a slope giving a view over the sea. I t was very relaxing and quiet there. we arrived in the evening and were met by Erini and Dimitrios who were in excellent communication throughout, we had a drink and snacks that they provided whilst they explained the workings of the home. It was immaculately clean and the pool perfect. We had a car so reaching the various towns and tourist spots was easy, and no trouble getting into athens which we did quite a lot as there was so much to do there. But it looked like the public transport was good on the main coast road . the local beach was indeed a small walk and was lovely. The food and restaurants in the area were excellent and really quite good value especially kebabs, which we ate a lot. I particularly recommend Zaxos, in Vari. In all and lovely place not many English tourists very Greek, a bit rough at the edges but real.

Irini and her husband couldn't have been more helpful. Met us with cold drinks and nibbles. Showed us around and how everything worked. Explained the local transport and the location of bus stops and even took us to the Supermarket to stock up. The pool may not be long enough for the serious lane swimmer but was great for keeping cool and splashing/floating around. Sitting on the front terrace at sunset, looking out across the sea .... I could have stayed forever.

We felt very vällkommna. Irini and Dimitri were very kind and helpful. They were waiting for us with Greek snack and cold beer. Afterwards, they began to tell us a little about the house and the area around, how can you get to the town via public transport, to the beach which was really close to the house. They took us throgh the car to show us the nearest restaurants and supermarkets. Then they showed the villa, pool and everything you need to know about electricity, how to start the dishwasher and washing machine, the neighbor was very kind and offer us a ride to the grocery store. Irini helped us to find some taxi companies contact information in case we need. The pool was very nice and realy private, we spend alot of time in. The kids really enjoy it. Overall, very nice trip, place and very kind helpfull peaple.

Vi var en familie på 4 som bodde i huset til Erini i en måned. Huset var perfekt til oss med gode uteplasser men kjøkkenet kunne vært større og mer utstyrt. Huset ligger greit til med gode bussforbindelser til flotte strender og Athen sentrum. Vi tok buss (15 minutter i retning Athen) til Yabanaki beach - Varkiza resort for å bade. Fantastisk organisert og familievennlig strand. Vi spiste nydelig italiensk mat på strand resturanten Vinzenco, noe vi anbefaler på det strekeste. Vi tok buss til Yabanaki både for å bade og for å handle mat. Strendene rundt huset var kjempefine men hadde desverre for oss overraskende mange kråkeboller, noe ungene likte særs dårlig. Huset til Erini kan vi anbefale til alle! Erini og mannen hennes var raske til å hjelpe til med alt mulig og de fulgte oss opp på en upåklagelig måte. Tusen takk for oss!!

Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances, Irini est passé nous chercher à l'aéroport pour nous conduire à la maison, nous avons eu toutes les informations nécessaires lors du premier jour. Irini et son mari Dimitri nous on vraiment bien accueillis et ils étaient très sympathiques ! La maison était propre, en bon état, très près de plusieurs plages vraiment calmes et très belles. Le coin piscine était magnifique, la piscine était bien entretenue. Nous sommes vraiment ravis d'avoir pu séjourner dans cette maison, et nous n'hésiterons pas à y retourner quand l'occasion s'y présentera ! Un grand merci à Irini et Dimitri pour ce séjour merveilleux dans leur maison :)

Мы только что вернулись из Греции и из замечательного дома Ирини и Димитроса. Отличный дом по соотношению "цена-качество": там есть все, что нужно для семейного или романтического отдыха. Верхний этаж очень напоминает хороший дачный дом: много места, патио под лимонными деревьями, барбекю. Нижний этаж - прохладный, чуть более спартанский. Замечательные хозяева - они в течение нескольких минут отзывались на любую проблему, которая у нас возникала, вплоть до поисков детского доктора, однако, мы старались этим не злоупотреблять. Дом расположен в тихом местечке под Афинами. Бонус для любителей наблюдать за самолетами - видовая площадка на крыше, откуда можно наблюдать заходящие на посадку лайнеры и, конечно, греческие звезды, и закаты над морем. Если Вы на машине - лучше места для отдыха от шумной городской суеты не найти: 20 минут до Афин, 25 до аэропорта и зоопарка, около 20-25 минут до мыса Союнион, где находятся живописные развалины храма Посейдона. Море рядом: буквально 5 минут пешком - и вы в тихой бухте, где и песок, и живописный вид, и чистое море и очень немного народу. Отдыхают, в основном, греки, которые обожают берега Сардонического залива. Поэтому в выходные на море идти не советую - афиняне оккупируют пляж. На этот случай в доме Ирини есть замечательный бассейн: можно нырять, играть с детьми в водные догонялки, можно просто лежать около воды и чувствовать себя героем голливудского фильма. Обязательно сходите в субботу на местный рынок, пешком далековато (идти минут 20-25), но оно того стоит - вы получите не только свежайшие овощи и фрукты, свежую рыбу, но и эстетическое удовольствие от этой шумной, громкоголосой публики, расхваливающей свой товар. И даже если вы не на машине, все равно есть возможность не сидеть на месте. До ближайшей станции афинского метро на такси можно добраться за 20 минут (стоит удовольствие около 16 евро). Эконом-вариант - доехать на автобусе, который ходит каждые полчаса. В 15 минутах езды на автобусе находится курортное местечко Варкиза, где есть и большие магазины, и кофейни с непременным фраппе, и рестораны. Мои дети сидят на строгой безглютеновой диете, однако, представьте себе, практически в любой пекарне в Варкизе вы можете найти безглютеновый хлеб и печенье. Мы отдыхали в основном вчетвером, потом присоединился пятый гость, но места вполне хватит для 7-8 человек. Спасибо Ирини и Димитросу за замечательный отпуск - дети уезжать не хотели.

My name is Irini and I live in Mykonos, Athens and London
I had been working in Management positions within the Logistics Sector for many years. Mykonos is my favourite island and I live here when the house is not rented. My daughter and my beloved nephews live in London and I visit them very often in winter time.
I love swimming in the deep waters of Mykonos, exploring the interesting seabed or walking along the beach in the afternoon. Agios Sostis ,Fokos and Panormos are ideal beaches for walking and experiencing nature. I also love sailing and I have been sailing among many Greek islands in the past .
AMAZING VIEW VILLA was not built to be rented and this is obvious at first glance , If you read my guest’s reviews you will realise that this house is meant to live in. An early morning swimming at Agios Sostis beach ,in walking distance of 200 meters, will be an unforgettable memory .Tip :Try an early morning swimming at Agios Sostis either as soon as you wake up, before breakfast or when you return from wild clubbing early in the morning before going to bed ! Holidays at AMAZING VIEW VILLA gives the guest the option to select or even combine wild clubbing and peaceful relaxation. Although Mykonos is globally famous as one cosmopolitan destination the truth is that it has numerous quietly located peaceful venues. One can discover isolated beaches of wild beauty. Many people know that Mykonos is also a wonderful autumn destination
MARIA’S HOMEY was my mother’s home, which has been renovated in 2016. My daughter and my beloved nephews had always had memorable school vacations here with their grandma . The location and the house combines family vacation close to the beach or peaceful relaxation at the private swimming pool with the possibility of exploring Athens sightseeings in only 40 minutes drive. Maria’s homey is also ideal for guests ,who wishes to combine a business trip or congress with afternoon relaxation at a house near to the beach. The weather at the coast of Saronic gulf is warm from April till November.
