Hydra Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Br, 3 Ba, Restored Mansion In Prime Location, Incredible Views (Sleeps 8)

Freddy's is a very spacious and elegantly restored 200 year-old stone villa, located in lower Kaminia, Hydra's nicest residential area. The house features magnificent views of the sea and the surrounding village, and is but a three minute walk to the best swimming areas and Tavernas on the island. Unlike so many houses on the island, it is not located high up in the hills, so it is easy to come and go during the hot days and nights of summer. The owner has meticulously renovated and upgraded the house over the last ten years. Freddy's has that rare combination of old world charm and modern amenities that makes for the perfect summer house. The house is furnished with antiques, art, and recently purchased Italian beds and sofas for comfort and style. It is also equipped with all modern amenities, including Hi-speed Wi-Fi in every room and outdoor living space. All the appliances and mechanical systems are new and in perfect working condition, a rare thing for an Hydra house. Freddy's has spectacular panoramic views of the sea and surrounding village, from each of its three huge master bedrooms. The high ceilings and large windows in each bedroom create a wonderful light and airy feeling that is rare to find. The forth bedroom, with a private 1/2 bath, opens onto the large private garden/courtyard that is planted with beautiful, mature shade trees. For true cooking enthusiasts, the garden area also features a full outdoor kitchen area with a custom made grill and a wood-fired pizza oven, which everybody loves. The house features a very large shaded terrace on the second floor, and a gigantic open air terrace on the top floor, each with full views of the sea. And just to provide the full Hydra experience, we offer a free afternoon boat excursion aboard our boat to everyone who books our house for 2014 and 2015. Also, If you need a second house on Hydra during your stay, as many of our guests do, please let us know, and we will help you make the necessary arrangements for a great second house that is close to ours.

In order to make getting to Hydra and enjoying our house as easy as possible, we are happy to coordinate private transportation from Athens Airport or Athens, or Pireaus to the front door of our house. We are happy to arrange for our licensed taxi driver and trusted friend to pick you up and deliver you, and your party to the boat taxi for the last short leg of your journey to Hydra. There we will meet you personally with donkey transportation for your luggage, and take you to the house. Alternatively, we are happy to arrange and pre-purchase your ferry tickets to Hydra, which can be difficult, and meet you in Port upon your arrival. Once you are established at the house we will help you customize your vacation experience on Hydra, if you wish. We will advise you on all the good restaurants, the best places for swimming, boat chartering, walking trails, museums, and other cultural events. We will also help you with any medical or dental issues that may arise, and hook you up with the all-important tech support wiz on the island, should your computers get ill!

As we maintain Freddy's to a high standard, a half day per week of maid service is included in the rental price. We can arrange for additional maid service, as well as a private chef, upon request. We stock the refrigerator with bottled water and will arrange for you to have donkey delivery from any of the three local markets.

We hope you will come to Hydra and be our guests soon. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you might have about Hydra or our house.

We know the time you spend at Freddy's will be a much cherished memory for you and your family.

Freddy's has been lovingly owned and maintained by the same American family since 1964.

My wife and I, and our twin boys, own and occupy several other houses on the island, and are always available to answer any questions and fix any problems immediately. We are happy to share our knowledge of the island, and show you our favorite swimming spots, tavernas, and cafes, as well as make introductions to make your stay on Hydra more enjoyable.

After being here for 35+ years, we know just about everybody on the island- locals, as well as summer 'regulars'. We find that we really enjoy working with our guests to help them enjoy Hydra to the fullest, and enjoy helping our guests find the things they enjoy doing..whether it is boating, hiking, or dining. It gives us a lot of satisfaction to help our guests get the most out of their stay.

Our eleven year old twin boys enjoy playing with the children of our guests, and showing them their favorite places to swim and play on the island.

Beauty, privacy and location. Freddy's is up high enough to have spectacular views of the sea, as well as the 'peaks' of Hydra, yet still low enough to walk to and from the beach and the main port of Hydra with ease. Kaminia is considered by locals to be the nicest part of the island; it is quiet, and never overrun with tourists--even during high season, yet some of the better restaurants on Hydra are located within a few minutes walk from the house.

We give our guests a level of personal attention that no absentee owner could provide. We can help coordinate travel to and from Athens Airport to our front door. We meet our guests upon arrival to the island, arrange for donkey transportation of guests luggage to the house, and personally familiarize our guests with our home, and the island. We will show you our favorite restaurants and shops, and love to take our guests out on our personal boat for boat picnics. We speak English, French, and Italian, as well as Greek. Our trustworthy housekeeper Peppa has been taking care of our home for over 15 years, and is available as often as you like. We will advise you on expert medical care should the need arise.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5
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!

Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had easily the best vacation of our lives at Freddy's house. We stayed there last July with one other couple and their two teenage kids. Where to begin? Dino and Trina kindly met us in port as we arrived and escorted us to the house. The second we entered the courtyard we knew we had scored the perfect vacation house. It's huge - it's three stories tall and like a small castle. We were pinching ourselves when we saw the three large and super-comfortable master bedrooms, each with full-on views of the ocean. The bathrooms were recently re-done and are also very large and sunny. There were also a lot of little touches we liked, such as high-quality, apparently new linens and towels, original artwork and antiques, and perfect WiFi throughout the house. We enjoyed the super-comfy Italian couches and beds too. Freddy's really has a classic expat style that made us feel at home.The garden is also superb. During the day we spent a lot of time lounging around under the big lemon and olive trees. In the evenings we went up to third floor terrace for cocktails to watch the sunset. We called it Magic Hour. The view was a religious experience. I would recommend Freddy's to anyone!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
My Family and I had a Lovely stay at this beautiful home! It was a wonderful retreat for us. The house is Great! With lots of recent updates, and all modern conveniences. It is very clean, and has charming antiques mixed with updates, such as Wifi, and flat screen TV. The linens seemed new, beds were very comfortable. It is located in a lovely spot, not too far from "Pirofani", one of the great "Expat" restaurants in Kaminia. There are also a couple of other great restaurants nearby, "Christina's", which is well known for excellent traditional Greek cuisine, and "Kodylenia's", with good taverna fare has gorgeous views! There is a good pebble beach, with service from the bar/restaurant, "Castello". The house has beautiful views from All three large, beautiful bedrooms!
