(PEARL) BEAUTIFULLY CONNECTED TO THE SEA, WITH A SUNSET GUARANTEED EVERY EVENING. RESTFUL. 5* RATING

0
HydraVista is superbly located 5 minutes from Plakas Beach where you have ammenities such as sun beds, refreshments without having to move, and an appealing taverna serving great Greek food - it became my dining room! There are a few other tavernas around there as well, if you don’t want to go into the Port. Just have to wear those weird rubber shoes on the pebble beach and you’re set! There’s a beautiful 45 minute walk into Hydra Port along which you can stop for refreshing swims off the rocks in water that ‘caresses’ you. In the Port you can shop till you drop, including your supermarket shopping, have coffee or lunch (or drinks and dinner later), hop in a water taxi and in 5 minutes you’re back at HydraVista. If you don’t want to walk, there’s a boat every half hour to take you into or out of the Port - of course, you pay for the boats. Being out of the Port gives you respite from the crowds - I loved that! HydraVista itself is beautifully appointed, is comfortable, well-looked after, and has a fresh white decor. It’s also fairly new. It is best for a couple or a single. My host,Trevor, was wonderfully amenable - there was a problem with the internet wiring in the street, and Trevor immediately provided a local chip until it was fixed. On arrival, he picked me up from the Port, helped me do the supermarket shopping, and helped with my bags. He was friendly and helpful in every way which makes a massive difference to a traveller without the local language. I stayed a month and didn’t want to leave! Big thank you to Trevor!

(CORAL) AN ODE TO DREAM, AN ODE TO LOVE 5* Rating

We spent a magical week in Trevor's Paradise. Every thing is perfect: the house with terrace which offers incredible views over the sea, Peloponnese and incredible sunsets. The interior of the house is so charming that it seems to be angelic house with purity and peace, the place where times stops, the place that enables fantastic walks passing through sea and typical greek villages to go to hydra, to go trekking in the mountains and finally ...Trevor, the owner with a golden character ! Hydra is an enchantment, maybe heaven on earth .. with so cute cats & donkeys ! To quote Nietzche saying " We must have music itself to make people dance" It's in Hydra there is the best music to make dance all people ..!

(CORAL) UNSERE ERWARTUNG WURDE NOCH ÜBERTROFFEN 5* RATING

HydraVista ist ein Ort zum Seele baumeln lassen, dort anzukommen war wunderbar Nach einer leider nicht so gelungenen Anreise hat uns die Herzlichkeit und Fürsorge des Vermieters und seiner Tochter besonders gutgetan Die Umgebung und auch Corall Vista ist zauberhaft und wir sind fest entschlossen den nur kurzen Aufenthalt bald und länger zu wiederholen

(PEARL) EXTRAORDINARY IN EVERY WAY 5* Rating

The Pearl is a perfect vacation retreat, able to fulfill all needs. We rented it for one week. One of us just wanted to rest and unwind; the other preferred walking and swimming. It was perfect for both of our needs. The three-level split interior is ideal for a quality vacation, home away from home. There is a fine sitting area with TV, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, and the most comfortable bed ever. Windows offer plenty of light and views of the sea, which is just a short walk away. The very comfortable outdoor sitting area offers astonishing views of the sea and spectacular sunsets. Water taxis offer regular service to the port and other points on the island. Or, you can walk. The total absence of cars and motorbikes makes Hydra unique and played a major role in our choice of the island and the Hydra Vista Pearl. There is an excellent restaurant, The Four Seasons, a short walk away, which also offers umbrellas and lounge beach chairs for swimmers who prefer an organized beach setting. The owner, Trevor, is the most accommodating host one can imagine. Knowledgeable about everything on the island, including its history and folklore. Always eager to help, providing every conceivable help. And he is simply a wonderful person to speak with. Very unintrusive, though, and respectful of guests' privacy. A perfect balance, the best vacation getaway in our own experience. And very reasonably priced. Stunning location! And Hydra is the best Greek island, hands down! We will stay at the Pearl again.

(CORAL) HERRLICHER MEERBLICK UND RUHE 5* Rating

Eine stilsicher eingerichtete Wohnung mit Komfort, wunderschönen Außensitzplätzen und einem phantastischen Meerblick. Trotz der etwas abgelegenen Lage hat man eine sehr gute Anbindung mit Shuttlebooten zur Stadt (5 Min., 3,- Euro pro Fahrt). Trevor ist ein ungewöhnlich liebenswürdiger, aufmerksamer, hilfreicher und großzügiger Gastgeber mit vielen guten Tips. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt.

(CORAL) ALREADY PLANNING TO RETURN 5* Rating

What a lovely get away! The villa is perfect with lovely white décor and lots of outdoor seating, a very comfortable bed and well appointed kitchen (not that you want to cook...as the restaurants are great and food spectacular). The outdoor patio areas overlooking the sweeping ocean views are stunning. The villa is a 4km walk into the town, or enjoy the local restaurants nearby. Water taxis or scheduled boat shuttles are easily available. Great swimming just steps from the villa. Trevor is the ultimate host - so friendly and helpful but not intrusive. He made any arrangements we requested and anticipated those we should have! This is the best host we have ever had!

(PEARL) A STUNNING STAY 5* Rating

So a brief and entirely inadequate note to thank you for a stunning stay at your wonderful villas and for all your help and advice while we were on Hydra. We had a wonderful and varied time thanks to you, from a challenging minibus drive and an "interesting" water taxi ride across, to a wonderful, restful, week on the island and a more sedate seacat return to Piraeus. It was all great fun and our friends from NZ enjoyed it as much as we did.It was a week to remember and savour and I expect that we will be back.

(CORAL) ENJOY BEING AWAY FROM IT ALL 5* rating

This place was paradise for us: well situated location, well furnished, clean and offering stunning sunsets every night. But above all that, Trevor is a friendly, responsive, helpful host. If you want to really feel away from the hustle and bustle of the world, this is the place to stay. While near enough to the necessary facilities (groceries, restaurants), it provides a calm and beautiful place to unwind.

(PEARL) AMAZING EXPERIENCE 5* rating

Staying at HydraVista was such an AMAZING experience! It is the most beautiful, peaceful place you can only imagine, you can really escape the reality there waking up to sound of the waves.... The terrace outside the apartament is a fantastic place to drink a glass of vino in the evening and look at the sunset....... Trevor is very welcoming and helpful man full of fantastic stories. He recommended places to see, eat and told us loads of funny stories about Greek culture. We would definitely be back again!!!!
