Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5-7; Studio (extra cost), Sleeps 2-3

Located on a small, private peninsula with access by sea or by car, Villa Kalypso offers vacationers a break from the chaos. Nestled amongst olive trees and shaded by pine trees, this rustic and remote property is situated directly beside the Aegean Sea with breath-taking sunset views from its many patios and easy access to the sea and partially sandy beach. This property certified by the government Greek Office of Tourism MHTE 0756K10000484301.

The main villa is comprised of 2 large and airy bedrooms (1 queen bed, 1 twin bed, 1 twin bunk bed and 1 optional crib), two full bathrooms, kitchen and open dining-living room area with a traditional fireplace. The living room area has convertible couches for additional sleeping for up to three persons. Encircling the villa is a large patio with outdoor dining table, lounge chairs, BBQ and shower. The villa was built to bring in the sea breezes and is ideal for the hot summer months.

All rooms are air conditioned.

The detached and private studio is comprised of one main room with queen bed, kitchen, sitting area (with a convertible couch) and bathroom with shower. The Studio Apartment has its own outside patio with small table, lounge chairs and dramatic views. It is ideal for a small family, in-laws or nanny and is offered for rent separately.

Below the villa and studio are several hammocks hung in the pine trees for relaxing away the lazy afternoons and an Alonni patio for enjoying the panoramic view of the sea and sunsets.

The near-by partially sandy beach is considered to be one of the nicest on the island and offers easy swimming. Directly below the property, for the more adventurous, there are many rocks to climb or dive into the Aegean Sea from. The property also has a private dock, but it is not recommended for long-term moorings or during storm weather.

About Kiki & Arnie Roe

We are (now retired) professors who live in Carlsbad, California. Many years ago we decided to find a place where we could spend peaceful summers with our little daughters.. After months of searching almost all the coastline and islands of Greece, we found an idyllic spot on the then remote (one ferry a week) island of Alonissos. We purchased a forested peninsula of land and built our dream home at the waters edge, and have not been able to stay away each summer since then.

Kiki & Arnie Roe purchased this villa in 1972

Why Kiki & Arnie Roe chose Alonnisos

Acknowledged by visitors and locals as the most beautiful location and house on the island. We do not make a business of renting the property, just try to cover some of our annual upkeep costs, so the rental price is very much lower than other nearby villas.

What makes this villa unique

Peace and calm like nowhere else on the island. Great for families.

Fantastic and very private seaside villa.

  • 5 of 5

What a great home to stay in in Alonissos. These's fantastic panorama views of the bay form the terrace. A beautiful path through the pines leads down along the rocks to a fantastic diving spot into the deep Aegean. The beach there and another beach a short swim around the rocks are -- because of cliffs -- accessible only by sea. It's difficult to tell images online but trust me, this is a great spot for a vacation. Good hiking trails too into the olive and pine forests in both directions lead to other sparsely populated beaches.

Alonissos studio

  • 5 of 5

If you love total peace & quiet, the most fabulous sea view, spectacular sunsets, and your own ladder access for snorkelling in the fabulous Aegean sea, you will love this place. We stayed in the studio, which is 'small but perfectly formed' with everything you could need to hand. The last part of the road to the property is a dirt road so we were glad of our 4x4 jeep and would recommend one for anyone holidaying on Alonissos. There are many beautiful walks right from the property, including to the chapel of Ag Anargiri - not to be missed. We went night snorkelling & the sea was alive with phosphorescence, an absolutely magical experience. It is only a 15 minute drive into the main town or to Chora for shopping and tavernas, though I guarantee you won't want to miss a minute of the tranquillity and amazing views at the property. We were lucky to have the place to ourselves as there was nobody in the main house. However, it would be ideal for a big family holiday occupying both properties. I had wanted to stay at this property for years, & when the oppotunity arose, it didn't disappoint in any way. My only reservation is that I would like to keep it as my personal secret! The owner and her representatives on the island couldn't have been more friendly & helpful.
