Overview

About the property

Sleeps 8

The Courtyard House is an 18th-century stone house in a peaceful but central part of Hydra town. It has the rare advantage of being only a 3 min walk (without steps) from the lovely harbour where all the cafes and shops are.

The house has a large secluded courtyard with a lemon tree. This pretty courtyard is surrounded by wisteria and jasmine, an ideal place for a tranquil breakfast.

With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (1 with a bath tub, 2 with showers), the house comfortably sleeps eight. However, there is also a sofa bed in one of the sitting rooms for 2 extra guests. Travel cot also available.

Decorated in a traditional style, the house has kept its original character, while at the same time has all the comforts of clean, modern living. The kitchen and bathrooms have been renovated in 2010. There are 2 living rooms, a large kitchen, a master bedroom and bathroom and 2 guest bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. All the rooms have lovely high wooden ceilings and wooden floorboards.

More about the house: On the first floor, the master bedroom has a double bed and a single bed and use of the main bathroom with bath tub. The master bedroom opens out onto a pretty secluded terrace where one can have quiet cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine surrounded by the smell of jasmine.

The other large bedroom on this level has a double bed and its own balcony. It also has its own en suite bathroom.

The third bedroom is on the ground floor. It has a double bed and a single bed and it also has an en suite bathroom.

The kitchen is large with a family breakfast table and is fully equipped with a toaster, kettle, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, cutlery and crockery, etc.

Some of the comforts of the Courtyard House include: a DVD player, a fully-equipped kitchen, a dishwasher, a washing machine, air-conditioning, proximity to the harbour and weekly maid service.

And finally : Hydra is a treasured getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. The Courtyard House is a safe haven for little ones, as is Hydra itself. It is a very easy picturesque walk to the harbour without any steps and the lack of cars and mopeds make Hydra an ideal destination.

Visitors to the house will be met at the port and shown to the house. Although you will have complete privacy during your stay, assistance or advice will only be a phone call away.

We stock the house with an initial supply of bottled water, juice, milk, coffee and tea upon arrival. We also provide a weekly maid service as part of the rental fee. More frequent service can be organised for an additional fee.

Beautiful traditional house with everything anyone might need for their stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have been twice and both stays were fantastic. The photos don't do it justice. This is the place to truly unwind. If I was going to write a novel I would come to this house and loose myself for a year.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We were all delighted to stay in this lovely house. No surprises when you arrive. The house is exactly as shown in the pictures. Beyond perfect if traveling as we were with a young child - tons of toys and books to entertain including crib & high chair. The rooms are spacious, bathrooms & kitchen are modern, makings us feel right at home immediately. We look forward to returning!

Perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Courtyard House which was perfect in every respect. Very conveniently located - close but still far enough from the buzz of the port. Although located within a densely built village it still felt

secluded and private. Equipped with everything that we needed for a comfortable stay - the children loved the game & DVD selection and enjoyed playing in the private courtyard. There is a very nice collection of books available to the visitors, including maps, hiking trails and information on the history and architecture of the island which was wonderful to browse in the warm afternoons out in the courtyard, where the only thing breaking the silence was the sound of swallows. The house was immaculately clean and thoughtfully decorated with respect to the local interior design. The bedrooms had access to private terraces and allowed the fresh air and the first warm April sun rays to light up the space and our hearts! We could not have asked for more. Many thanks!

Heaven in Hydra

  • 5 of 5

Hydra is a very special place and we loved The Courtyard House. Spacious, tastefully decorated, very well equipped, just perfect in every detail. And the charming courtyard provided peace and privacy.

Wish we could have stayed longer.

WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental experience was perfect! Communication with the owner prior to arrival, being met at the ferry and then the short walk to this wonderful and ultra charming house. It was not easy to leave after our 4 night stay. We should have stayed longer
