“A fantastic stay in gorgeous Hydra”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

This was our second visit to Hydra but our first in this lovely house. We think the house is perfectly located. High enough for those amazing views but not too strenuous a climb from the harbour.

We fell into an easy routine of breakfast on the terrace, a day out on the beach, watching the sunset from the balcony and then reverting back to soak up the view over the harbour. In a town of great views, we don't think there is a better view in Hydra. We had a fabulous week and left Hydra relaxed but with a heavy heart to be leaving such a beautiful island and house.

The house is well equipped, authentically decorated and perfect for a couple. The pictures don't tell the full story. Myrsini was very responsive and all arrangements went very smoothly.The air con coped admirably with the summer heat and the wifi was speedy and reliable. A larger shower is the only thing on our wish list.

We will definitely be back!

“Beautiful home with most amazing views”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This house is in a wonderful location overlooking Hydra town and the roof top terrace has 360 degree sea views all around. Just breathtakingly beautiful. Lovely to watch the ferries and boats coming in to the port and the unforgettable sunsets from the roof terrace or the balcony.
The house is beautifully furnished and very spacious and comfortable with views from every window and balcony to die for.
I could not have dreamed of a better place to stay and I will definitely want to go back and show it to all my family and friends.
To enjoy the views in Hydra you have to be prepared to climb up steps, lots of them, if you have knee problems like I have it can be tough, but the struggle was well worth it.
The house fitted three adults comfortably but I would not take small children there as the steps are tough and the furniture and objects in the dining area are beautiful and swimming from Hydra is mainly from the rocks.
I would certainly recommend this place as it is beautiful, comfortable, cosy, peaceful, clean and with million pound views. I was in heaven there and did not want to leave and my adult daughter and son loved it too.

“Theodora's Amazing View House certainly lives up to its name.”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

It has always been a travel ambition to visit Hydra. We were not disappointed. However, staying at Theodora's Amazing View House made the trip even more special. The place is a bargain. The facilities are first class. The views are out of this world. I cannot imagine a better place to stay and enjoy Hydra.

“Views of old Greece”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014
2
people found this review helpful

There are few better views in Greece with vistas over the sea to the mountains on one side and an overview of Hydra and its port on the other. We spent most of our days switching from one vantage spot to another, the only decision being whether to sit in or out of the sun. The house has a strong sense of old Greece with family photos, furniture and ornaments throughout and the a/ced bedroom was just right. A very relaxing break.

“Roomy layout, charming decor, and oh! those views!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

Staying in this beautifully decorated, amazingly situated home is a real privilege. The views—from multiple terraces, a nearly 360-degree roof, and every single window—are breathtaking. You see the whole harbor and Hydra Town basin in one direction, the gulf and the mainland in the other, sunrise and sunset. That white Greek light moves around the house throughout the day. It’s a dream of a Greek island.

Inside, the house offers spacious rooms full (really FULL) of art nouveau furniture, family photos covering multiple generations, memorabilia, paintings, charming little lamps, and, in the sitting room, a large boulder. The small kitchen is crammed with mismatched dishes and random utensils. You will find everything you need. There is a good-sized refrigerator with a freezer and an ice tray. There are, blessedly, two bathrooms.

Yes, the house is up many steps—the price for the views, and well worth it—but steps aside it is a quick walk to cafes, restaurants, and shops. The donkeys that gather at the quai can take your luggage (and you) uphill and down. The water at the house is apparently not potable; you’ll be lugging bottled water up the hill.

The owners do not seem to rent on a large scale, so the instructions and procedures are kind of sketchy. You will be largely on your own. Nail down the details by email before your arrival.

If you are thinking of visiting Hydra, or wondering what island to choose for an extended stay, this house makes the decision easy. Grab it if you have a chance. Living there, even temporarily, is a marvelous experiences.
