Everything about Freddy's House was perfect from the moment I stepped through the gate door; the property, its location, and its hosts. Spotlessly clean, impeccably furnished and incredibly warm, Freddy's House was an oasis of calm for the three weeks I was on Hydra. For an island with so much to do outside, I will confess I often didn't want to leave the house! Beyond being Architectural Digest-ready with its effortlessly chic styling and incredible history, the house itself is chock full of up-to-date amenities one longs for on a trip far away from home; a dishwasher, washer/dryer, great showers, air conditioning, refrigerators with ample storage, and most importantly, fast wi-fi in every room and great cell reception throughout. Dino and Trina were wonderful hosts, always available with any questions I had about the house, its history, or the island itself. (Their recommendations on where to eat were especially welcome, and always spot on.) I had a once-in-a-lifetime stay at Freddy's, and know any other traveler who stays here will too. A tip: if Dino offers you a tour of the island, take it without hesitation!
