Samos House Rental Photos and Description

3 Storey original Greek home with panoramic views of Samos harbour and town

Built in 1929 and restored over the last two years to its original grandeur, the home is one of the most outstanding properties on the island. It has three floors, each providing panoramic views of Samos/Vathi town and harbour and totals 180m² of living space, with an additional 60 m² roof top.

Located just metres from the central pedestrian shopping mall and the main town square, and a 20 short walk to Gaggou Beach the luxury home offers all of the convenience of town living from a secluded and quiet position.

The property comprises a formal and an informal living area, separate dining room and kitchen – all as originally configured but totally updated. There are three double bedrooms, and a study/fourth bedroom. There are two bathrooms (main with large shower) as well as a toilet area on the rooftop. All rooms have stunning views over the port, town or surrounding mountains and capture all the summer breezes, while the master bedroom has a private wrap around balcony.

Fully Renovated Traditional Home: The house is a traditional up-market house, nearly 100 years old. It could not be better located for anyone interested in staying in Samos/Vathi - close to everything but in a quiet secluded area.

It is made of local stone - the outer walls are 80cm thick and internal ceilings are 3.5 metres high. The renovation completed in 2008 included new plumbing, electrical re-wiring, replacement of light fittings, laying new floor coverings and installation of central heating and solar hot-water. There is a water pump that ensures good water pressure in every part of the house - including the large upstairs shower room.

The original wooden windows and shutters have been repaired and repainted and the front door replaced by a hand made replica of the original. The house has been re-painted inside and out in the traditional style of the house. Facing towards the harbour, the house is always cool and receives refreshing breezes in almost all weather conditions.

A wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5
Dear Steven

We had a wonderful week staying in your house in Samos. The town itself provided the perfect base to explore Vathy and some of the surrounding areas. Loved being able to buy fresh local produce from the nearby market, eggs and fruit for breakfast. We had some super meals out in the town which were very memorable. The island is totally genuine, friendly and safe. As for the house, it was a such a quiet and restful place to stay with all the comforts of home which you rarely find with holiday rents. So much has been considered for the benefit of those staying there. It is a beautiful house, really spacious, comfortable and clean with the character and original features of a period house which we truly appreciate. The roof terrace was superb - the views !The location was so convenient for the cafe's, supermarket, restaurants, museum ( which was excellent) and shops. We had wonderful weather with was an added bonus.

We would loved to return to Samos another time and hire your house again if it were available.

Thank you so much.

Juliet, Mike and Mimi - from West London

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful house in a good location in Vathy close to shops and restaurants and well set up for self catering. All the bedrooms were lovely with views, a joy to stay in. Lots of space to chill out in including the fabulous roof patio overlooking the town....great for sun worshipers. The owner was fantastic and couldn't do enough for us from the first contact 6 months before....he made our stay very easy. We hired a car and saw quite a lot of Samos and used the owner's crib sheet to chose towns and restaurants to visit very successfully. The car allowed us to spend our days exploring and sunning and swimming at beaches a short drive from town.

I would certainly recommend this house for a great stay on Samos. If this house is unavailable the owner has another house out of town with just as much loving attention given to it. We were very lucky to find this house and its very helpful owner.

Holidaying in a Greek Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My sisters and I were welcomed at Samos Airport by John our
Property Manager who organised our baggage and escorted our Taxi into Vathis - an unexpected service but most appreciated.

Our first impression of our magnificent home for the next 2 weeks was of complete awe and stepping inside the ornate front doors did not disappoint. The home which has been restored in all its former glory is very well appointed with every luxury at your fingertips. From the kitchen(a woman's delight) to the laundry through to the bedrooms and beautifully renovated bathroom - my favourite amenity being the immense shower recess. Most importantly the beds were very comfortable with quality linen and towelling. But for us the "Icing on the Cake" was the Rooftop Entertaining Deck partly covered with comfortable lounges and dining setting and equipped with kitchenette and toilet. We spent many a balmy evening sipping champagne and cocktails admiring the stunning views across the town and Samos Bay up into the mountains and experiencing the beautiful sunsets.

Situated in a Pedestrian only area a short stroll down the steps leads you through cobbled streets and into the town centre with unique tavernas and shops tucked away in every lane-way a shopper's delight! Many a morning was spent in the town square overlooking the Bay sipping coffee and planning our day.. the owner provided a great synopsis of the Island which guided us to the best attractions and fabulous Tavernas from secluded beachfronts up into the mountains. The authentic Greek food is to die for and very cheap as are the local wines which are free of preservatives. Samos is a beautiful green island with secluded beaches, lush rain forests and intriguing villages. The churches and Monastrys are well worth visiting. Ferries leave daily from Samos to Turkey and the other Islands.

The hospitality of the Greek people on Samos has left a lasting impression. They are very warm and friendly and made our stay so much more pleasurable. We are returning next year and can’t wait to return to our “Home away from Home” with all it’s old world charm and warmth so much more than just a holiday house.

Owner's Response: It is always nice to receive comments as the one above regarding the house and Samos in general
Yes Samos is a beautiful island with lots of space and lots to do
From valleys to waterfalls, secluded beaches, monasteries and archaeological sites I can go on and on but i will leave that to our visitors that visit our island
It is also very nice to hear that the money and effort put in to bring this house to its formal glory
is appreciated by our visitors
I thank the sisters for their comments and we are looking forwards to see them again

LOVED IT - AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
From being picked up at the airport by John, our wonderful Customer Service Property Manager our holiday in Vathi was made memorable by us staying in this beautiful home. There were panoramic views of the harbour from the bedroom floors and a spectacular rooftop entertainment area watching the beautiful sunset with a cocktail in hand. It was quiet yet situated right next to the heart of Vathi with many restaurants and coffee shops. Our favorite Restaurant being THE STEPS. The home had every facility imaginable and has been tastefully and beautifully restored. Samos is a big beautiful green Island, so by hiring a car with ample parking close by we able to explore the beautiful mountains and amazing beaches.
It was all the Website claimed and much more

Suosittelen!

Olimme viiden aikuisen ystäväni kanssa viettämässä lomaviikkoa syntympäivien merkeissä. Jännityksellä odotimme mitä netin kautta vuokraamamme asunto toisi tullessaan. Olimme maksaneet varausmaksun ja loput vuokrasummasta olimme sopineet maksavamme perillä. Vastassamme pitäisi olla omistajan lanko.

Lanko oli vastassa, kunhan itse ensin löysimme sovittuun paikkaan ;) Hän kuljetti autollaan osan meistä perille, loput tulivat taksilla perässä. Hän esitteli huoneiston ja kertoi puhelinnumeronsa. Hän olisi tavoitettavissa 24/7, jos meille tulisi ongelmia tai kysyttävää. Ja hän kirjoitti pyytämättä kuitin vuokranmaksusta. Asunto sijaitsi aivan Samoksen kaupungin kesustassa, rannan/sataman lähellä.

Asunto oli aivan loistava! Alakerrassa viihtyisä olohuone, josta löytyi mm. Samoksen esitteitä ja karttoja eri kielillä, makuuhuone parisängyllä, keittiö, ruokailutila ja wc pyykinpesukoneen kera. Toisessa kerroksessa oli kaksi makuuhuonetta parivuoteilla, yksi pienempi makuuhuone (esim. kahdelle lapselle) ja kylpyHUONE. Kolmannessa kerroksessa oli wc, talon toinen jääkaappi ja aivan mahtavan kokoinen, viihtyisä kattopatio mielettömän upealla näköalalla. Patiolla söimme aamiaisen, vietimme halutessamme aikaa, söimme muutamana iltana illallisen ja vietimme joka ilta aikaa istuen ja jutellen yömyöhään. Sadekaan ei olisi haitannut patiolla oloa, sillä se oli osaksi katettu.

Ilmat olivat tämän lokakuun ensimmäisen viikon ajan loistavat. Lämpötila päivällä oli noin 30 astetta, eikä se yölläkään laskenut alle 22 asteen.

Itse Samoksen saari oli mukavan kokoinen, mutta silti vaihteleva. Luonto oli toisella puolella saarta rehevää ja vehreää ja toisella puolella kuivaa ja kitukasvuista. Yhden päivän vietimme rannalla Karlovasissa, jonne menimme paikallisbussilla. Kolme päivää kiertelimme saarta ja sen rantoja ja vuoristoja skootterien selässä. Serpentiinitiet ja teiden kivisyys oli minulle vähän matkustaneelle kokemus. Yhden päivän vietimme Turkissa Kusadasissa, jonne lauttamatka kesti 1,5 tuntia.

Tuliaisia ajatellen itse Samoksen kaupunki ei ollut hyvä kohde, vaan niitä löytyi parhaiten Pythagoraan kaupungista ja Turkin puolelta.

Pythagoraan luolat saaren lounaisosassa ja vesiputoukset saaren luoteisosassa olivat todella näkemisen arvoisia. Myös lasten kanssa voisin kuvitella matkustavani turvallisen tuntuiselle saarelle.

Asunnon omistaja kertoi omistavansa asunnon myös Australiassa, jossa hän itse asuu. Suuntaisimmekohan matkamme sinne seuraavaksi..?

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5
This home was an ideal base for our 10 day stay in Samos. The descriptions and photos were everything and more than we were expecting. Great location, well renovated with traditional features retained in a pedestrian only area very close to the town square. Parking was not a problem. We were an extended family of 6 which included teenagers and we all loved it. The owners provided us with very good local information and they were very prompt with communications.

Easily accessible by plane and ferry – Samos sits just a kilometre or so off the coast of

Turkey, the mountains across the Mykali straits providing a spectacular backdrop to

most of the north eastern part of the island. The southern most of the North East

Aegean Islands and just north of the Dodecanese, Samos is a great base for island

hopping - although there is of course lots to do on the island itself.

It was the birthplace of the mathematician Pythagoras, as well as the site of the ancient Temple of Hera. The Efpalinos Tunnel – an engineering marvel from the time of Polykrates – deserves a look. The house is metres from the ArchaeologicalMuseum in Samos (outstanding Kouros), the main village square, the port and Gaggou and Roditses beaches and close to the bus station..

Although damaged by fire, Samos is still a green island. Mountain pine forests and vineyards provide a cool green retreat on hot summer days and some outstanding hiking for those with the energy.

Notes:
The rooftop area of the house offers a panoramic view of Samos harbour and Samos/Vathi. It contains a dining table and chairs as well as a large comfortable lounge setting. There is a utility room off the rooftop which includes a fridge for drinks and snacks and a small dresser for plates, glasses etc. There is also a toilet and handbasin. There is a free public wireless during the summer that can usually be accessed from the rooftop. If this is not available, there is free wireless in all of the cafes on the main square (2 minutes walk from the house) and a couple of internet cafes close by. There is parking very close to the house but not immediately outside it as it is in a pedestrian only area. There are a few steps to the house - and the house itself is 3 stories so it would not suit anyone who has serious problems with stairs. The bus station is an easy walk. The house is very close to the main shopping mall plus all the waterfront cafes and tavernas.
