- english, greek
I was born and raised in Greece. My grandparents were born in Ios and we still have relatives in the island. My wife and I have studied in London and the US. We both have MBA degrees. I have worked for more than 15 years at Wall Street, NY and my wife more than 10 years in London in banking. We love traveling and have visited more than 80 countries around the world.
Why Owner chose Ios
Our villa is a dream come true for us. We spent an enormous amount of time, energy and money on every architectural detail, while we tried hard to have a minimum impact on the environment. This is our own family villa that we rent it only to sophisticated travelers during the time that we do not use it ourselves. The villa is brand new and has all the modern amenities. It is very important for us that our visitors feel like they are staying in their own home and treat it as if it were their own.

Paradise on the Aegean
We visited Ios and stayed at this property late last year, 2016. The house is set on a hill with unobstructed views of the sea. Breathless first impression! We are a family of four and had taken the ferry to the island and were itching to get into the holiday spirit. It took us almost an hour to enter the main house after our arrival as we could not get enough of the sun and water views. Absolutely beautiful. Our host had information on all the beautiful beaches and the town area on the island and believe me those were tough choices. The house itself has a fully stocked kitchen and our host very thoughtfully had filled the refrigerator with goodies for our immediate needs. There were towels galore and the beds were already made. The island is best explored walking and has some excellent fish restaurants all within walking distance. We visited most of the beaches that had been suggested by our host but our favorite was the one right below to the house. The sunsets are spectacular and if you wish for a higher vantage point, it is a pleasant walk to the Club/lounge in the main town. Another of our host's excellent suggestion.
Amazing views, exquisite architecture
We had a great time in Villa Ios Blue. Fantastic location with amazing sunsets and sea views. This is a real villa, not a commercial one "built to rent".The owners rent the villa when they do not use it themselves. We traveled with our two kids We stayed at the master bedroom while the kids stayed at the studio. We spent most of the time at the main veranda while the kids had their own veranda in front of the studio. The kids had a lot of fun and these days that is what counts most. The villa is close to 2 beaches and two nice restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the grilled fresh fish with a glass of ouzo at the Koumbara Beach Restaurant. The villa is a short drive to the town and port. A couple of times we even walked to the town to have dinner, a 15-20 minute hike. The owners were very friendly and spent a lot of time giving us information about the island. We are looking forward in coming back again!
If you want to enjoy and grasp the spirit of the Aegean, this is an ideal place to go. Ios is a magnificent island, full of splendid beaches, a very beautiful main village and a relaxing and joyful atmosphere. Very youthful and erotic. The house is also ideal for enjoying the island. It is conveniently located near the port and the main city, yet it stands on its own, securing serenity and total peace. From its verandas you can absorb the most gratifying sunset. The house is simple and at the same time aristocratic and totally adequate for summer living. We particularly liked the architectural setup of the property, whereby the two living quarters are adjacent, but at the same time separate, thus securing independence for the two parties that occupy them.
I very warmly recommend and I really hope to be back soon. Thanx!
Un lugar paradisíaco
Un lugar de ensueño, donde la sofisticación y la simpleza encuentran su equilibrio. La calidez y hospitalidad de sus anfitriones, dos banqueros que han vivido en NY y que su sueño fue construir ese lugar tan especial. El atardecer en sus tonos naranjas es como se viviera dentro de la casa, los barcos que pasan y el tiempo se detiene.
Cerca podés comer los mejores pescados y la mejor comida griega. Imperdible.
