Guestbook comments from the manager

“Party of 6 people, all of us had a very, very good holiday, first time we had been based in a town and the first time we haven`t used car hire whilst away…Excellent place to have a holiday, myself & my wife have been to POROS before as boyfriend/girlfriend 22 years ago, this time we took the family and the area was a lot better than we remembered it….

Lemon Tree house was an ideal base for us, suited us perfectly, all amenities in the house that we needed, enjoyed the terrace/patio area and of course just minutes from all tavernas, the harbour, boat taxis, bus`s and shops, ideal for us all…. All six of us enjoyed it more than we expected and we all would recommend the accommodation & area to everybody….”

1 week stay for four people. Nice place but NO service, approximate maintenance, bugs, fleas, Ikea items all over,kitchen equipment to be changed, no hot water. Very expensive, bad value for money.

Lemon Tree House - A little bit of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the whole villa for 2 weeks in July 2009. We wanted somewhere that was a little different, not a 'New Build' villa in a 'complex' where they all look the same. If we were spending time on on a Greek Island, I wanted it to be in beautiful surroundings, and as close to Greek living as possible.The villa exceeded our expections. It has been beautifully & sympathetically renovated, to a high standard. Keeping many of the original features, but with all mod-cons. My partner & I took 8 teenagers with us, ranging from 16-21. We took the double room on the top floor, the 3 x 21yr olds slept on the sofabeds in the living room, and the 5 teenagers had the lower floor all to themselves, it worked very well. Everyone appreciated the stunning views over the harbour & it became a little ritual, after a day out, for all of us to sit on the huge terrace and watch the sunset, & boats going by, with a glass of wine or beer. Followed by a leisurely walk down to pick a restaurant to eat in. We would highly recommend the '3 Brothers', but all of our meals were excellent, for choice & value. Although the beaches are not on the doorstep, the closest is approx 20 min walk, the buses go round the island, both ways, stop at every beach, and are very frequent. You can also SEE the bus stop from the villa terrace, and the buses 'wait' for 5-10 mins so if necessary you can make a mad dash! We hired a Quad bike as an 18th b'day celebration, great value & fun, at appx 30EUR for 24hrs, an excellent way to travel around the island. The boat taxis are also a brilliant way to get to beaches. We fell in love with 'Love' beach. It's small, secluded, with just sun beds, one cafe/bar (with Wi-Fi) and very relaxing. The teenagers preferred the busier beaches.They did go 'clubbing' 5 or 6 times, but were a little disappointed, being used to busier, high energy clubs in the UK, it did'nt stop them though! But if you do want that type of 'Night-life' this is not the island for you, it's too relaxed & laid back to be that 'high energy'. We had, just once, a problem with our teens playing music loudly (+ it was awful music!) during siesta, while we were out, as the area is residential. In hindsight we had'nt explained this to the teens. But it was dealt with in a very professionally yet friendly way, mobile call to us, talk to teens, dealt with. The villa/island is perfect for relaxing, it's not an 18-30 resort, and would I recommend it for that.

On enchanting POROS ISLAND, Lemon Tree House overlooks the harbour and enjoys unrivalled panoramic sea and mountain views. Just 1hr from the port of Athens, Poros offers unspoilt island magic with the opportunity to island hop to the surrounding Saronic islands of Aegina, Hydra, Spetses and beyond.

Pretty gardens surround the house with trees and shrubs. Comfortable terrace seating is supplied.

There is free use of two swimming pools with sunbeds and snack bar facilities within a few minutes by bus or taxi from from Lemon Tree House. From the harbour you can hop on a 24hr taxi boat to the mainland or to one of the peaceful sandy beaches with tavernas and sunbeds. A 15 minute stroll takes you to the nearest sandy bay at Kanali; a beautiful beach with two good tavernas with beach service! A bus service every 20 minutes tours the island or a taxis are always available.

Lemon Tree House can be rented as 2 separate apartments, slps 2-4 and 4-6. Ask for availability and rates. We have a similar house directly opposite Poros on the mainland.

Other Activities: cultural activities.

See what some of our guests say, many of them repeat visitors to Lemon Tree House:

'Full with happy memories of Poros and the Lemon Tree House we returned to a wet and cold Holland almost four weeks ago. We enjoyed our stay very much; we had wonderful summer weather in October. For the Greek the Mediterranean is already too cold to swim, but the temperature of the sea water is warmer in October than if ever gets in August in the North Sea. Jan met us when we stepped off the Flying Dolphin and we immediately were at home in the house. The view from the balcony is fantastic and only sitting there for a week is holidays. We explored every beach on the island, went to Hydra and to Epidauros, had wonderful dinners in restaurants. Thank you very much for everything.' M. van Assen October 2009

'We would just like to tell you what a wonderful holiday we all had! The villa is absolutely beautiful. The views are stunning and all of us will have long and fond memories of evenings watching the sunset from the terrace, with a glass of wine or a cold beer, while trying to decide where to go for dinner! For one our party it was her first time abroad, and what a place to start! We also had an 18th birthday celebration, complete with `Ice Cream` birthday cake from the local cake shop.

Everyone came away appreciating the very relaxed & friendly atmosphere on Poros.

I would highly recommend a holiday on this beautiful island to anyone, but then too many people would find out about it...And the secret would be out!

Between all of us we have well over 2000 photos, so if you need any extra pictures for the villa please let us know.

Many thanks for all your help' K. Newhouse
