Description

The space

We believe we offer a listing "value for money" as it can cover all the basic needs of travelers, in an accessible location and with a nice view of the village of Ioulis.

Guest access

Travelers have full access to all areas of the house.

Interaction with guests

With great pleasure I can offer my recommendations and suggestions on how to get here and there. Please feel free to to request any information about the island during our communication. I live permanently in the Netherlands, so my mother Konstantina will be waiting for you in Kea. She will be happy to help you in any way that makes your trip easier. She speaks some English thus we will make sure that the house information will be handed to you in written form as well.

However, after the initial meeting and arrangements, the travelers will enjoy absolute privacy.

For any further inquiries please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Konstantina or me (via email/phone).

The neighbourhood

The location allows for easy access by car from the main road while avoiding climbing up all the stairs in Ioulis. At the same time bars, restaurants and other stores are close by. Be prepared for some extensive stairs climbing, but that is the fascination of the main village in Cyclades, isn't it?

Getting around

Kea has a good coastal transport. There is daily communication with the port of Lavrio.
Ioulis is located 7km from the port of Korissia. Transportation within the island is served by five taxis that operate on call, a tour bus, and two more private buses. We will make sure that information leaflets will be available at the house, but please look for them also on the boat, at the travel agency of Laurio, and at the local tourist information point in Korissia.
The bus stop in Korissia is located at the right side of the port right in front of the boat and the taxi station is on the left side of the port, some 150 meters from the boat. In the village of Ioulis the bus stops in "Piatsa" and at the same location, you can find the taxi station.

After adequate organization, we can pick you up from the port on your arrival.

Other things to note

The tap water is NOT drinkable in Ioulis. We will provide you with some bottles of fresh water and later you can get some more supplies from the local stores.

There is no internet connection but there is the municipality free wifi.

The house is available for monthly rental as well.


House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check in time is flexible

By renting this listing, you are renting a full house, with no shared areas. We do not live in or near that house, thus in order to meet you for the first time and handling over the keys, we need to travel 18 km, so please be punctual on the first appointment.

The house is located in a neighborhood with families, so the rules of quiet time apply i.e. from 1 to 3 p.m. and from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. during that time, noise levels must be kept down as much as possible.

Note that smoking is strictly not allowed in the house. However, you can smoke at the open space in front of the house entrance.

The house is equipped with all the kitchen amenities, please feel free to cook and use any of the kitchenware, but keep the place clean and in moderate tidiness.

Please keep the door locked and windows closed when not at home and especially on your last day make sure that everything is sealed. We know that the summer in the Cyclades is very hot and a breeze of air might keep the house cooler, but the wind can be very strong sometimes causing damages if windows are left open.

Water is precious in the Cyclades so please use in moderation. Please keep in mind that tap water is NOT drinkable.

Although I did not meet Despina during the stay, she was very clear in her communications and did everything she could to arrange for logistics and further details. The house is as described, with plenty of space for 4 people (and perhaps more). All in all, highly recommended if you want to stay in Kea!

Great value for money! The place is an old house, yet clean and functional. Despina was really helpful giving us tips for the area. If you are looking for an affordable place in the centre of the island, this is it.

Despina è molto gentile e precisa e disponibile. Descrive con accuratezza come muoversi dal suo alloggio agli atri posti d'interesse del paese e dell'isola. La casa è molto spaziosa fornita di tutto! La gentilezza di Despina permette anche di mettere a disposizione acqua e necessario per la colazione, oltre ad un foglio con un accurata descrizione delle attrazione dell'isola e con contatti utili.
