About Elena Mouriki
My name is Elena. I was born in Greece, and after studying social anthropology in London and completed my research in Tanzania, I returned to Athens, Greece where I live with my British partner and our two children. Before I had any kids I was travelling a lot and I always keep in mind how I would like to be welcomed and treated if I visited someone else's house. So far, I consider myself lucky that I had the opportunity to meet so many incredible people who visit Mykonos and stay in our place. They all add their personal touch in a house we love and where we have spent some of the best times ever.
Elena Mouriki purchased this Villa in 1986
Why Elena Mouriki chose Mykonos
My mother bought that property in 1985, when she was travelling in the Cyclades. When she arrived in Mykonos she instantly loved the place and a friend insisted she should see a property that was for sale. At the moment she wasn't planning to buy a summer house, but she decided to have a look anyway.. the interesting thing is that she confused the directions and found herself in a wrong place...this was not the house that her friend was talking about. She had stroke gold! it was love at first sight. The views over the Aegean sea where breathtaking and the orientation (south) ideal, the house was flooded into light. She souk hands with the owner there and then, and the rest is history. Over the years we changed many things of the original design; we lowered and widened a window, built the fire place, added a guest-room, paved the verandas, planted the bugambilias, the oleanders, the geraniums, had a swimming pool etc. All this 'add ons' give it a sort of 'vernacular feel to it but at the same time is very functional. We always believed that true summer relaxation needs to be simple yet functional. This is a very simple and very lovable house

2 night stay
We had a party of 7 adults stay 2 nights. Elena was a great host and welcomed us to the property with great information. Our favorite parts of the house were the swimming pool/pool deck and the amazingly beautiful view of the sea below. There were 4 bedrooms with their own bathrooms, although one of them was part of the living room - not a big deal when the rest of the group headed to bed. The house has a cozy, cabin like feel to it. The house is a little bit isolated, but a 10-15 minute drive to the Mykonos Windmills and downtown. Elena gave us a great recommendation to eat at the Nice and Easy restaurant downtown and got us a table right next to the water. Overall we were very happy with this property and would recommend it to others.
This was such a beautiful property, the pictures don't do it justice. We had an amazing time.
Elena is an amazing host. She was always available and helped with anything from dinner recommendations to grocery delivery. The property is gorgeous and the pool helps in the hot heat. Thank you again Elena!
Fantastic views with everything you need
The villa was amazing! The views were breathtaking and reinforced the beauty of Mykonos. Everything we needed was included, from the kitchen necessities to beach towels. There were so many spots on the property to enjoy the different vistas.
Elena was an extremely attentive host and answered all our questions quickly. She set us up with food for the first evening which was greatly appreciated.
The pool provided a place to relax after exploring the nearby beaches and towns and was a much-appreciated amenity.
Don't miss your chance to experience one of the most beautiful places on earth in the perfect villa.
Elena was a great host and the property is amazing. When we checked in, the house was stocked with enough food to feed the nine of us the first day, which was a welcome surprise after a long day of travel. The house was spotless and the view from the patio was beautiful. The property is somewhat isolated, but Elena set us up with reliable transportation. I highly recommend Elena and her property.
Thank you Ray for all you read comments!
I am glad you enjoyed the house and the island. Hope to see you again.
Great villa, location and layout
We loved it here, and would return in a heart beat. We were a group of 3 couples and the layout ensured we all had own space while enjoying communal time around the pool and the various dinning areas.
The owners were super nice and friendly but not intrusive.
A lovely place which we enjoyed calling home for the week!
Our family home is a white washed traditional Cycladic house with bugambilias climbing on the pergolas and oleanders all around . A house ideal for families and friends. It is a beautifully decorated house in a private plot of land with spectacular sea views. It is very functional and can accommodate many people, because of its 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as well as lots of clothes storage.
All beds have feather pillows and good quality cotton bed linen. New bath towels as well as beach towels are provided for all guests.
A big plus is the privacy, and very quite surroundings. It has a fully equipped kitchen. Great swimming pool.
Mykonos is one for the most cosmopolitan islands in the Mediterranean, it is well known for its unique and many sandy beaches, excellent restaurants (from Greek tavernas to top end Thais, Italian or Japanese restaurants) and night life. There are bars, clubs and top rate DJs but also secluded wild sand beaches waiting to be discovered .
Mykonos offers a wide range of activities such as horse riding, sea sports, wind surfing, scuba diving etc, as well as boat-trips to Delos, the birth place of Apollo and Diana. The child friendly village of Ano Mera is ideal for families with young children where the central square is surrounded by traditional tavernas and cars are not allowed so that kids can run all around in this protected and very pretty part of the island.
The international airport and regular ferry boats to Athens and most other Cycladic islands (Santorini, Paros, Naxos, Ios and more) means that no days are lost travelling.
The house is close to supermarkets, petrol, station, bus stop and Mykonos town. Even though the cosmopolitan Psarou beach is just 10 min walk down the hill, a car is recommended in order to make most of this incredible island.
The area is very safe.
