We have two holiday apartments to rent which are independent from the main part of our home so you have your privacy.
The 'Drosia' holiday apartment, sleeps 5 is on the lower ground floor and the 'Chara' holiday apartment, sleeps 4, is on the upper ground floor.
You can book them separately for your next holiday or often we book them together when larger families or friends are travelling together but want to have some independence.
Situated approximately 100m from Kamini Harbour the Kodylenia Apartments to rent are reached from Hydra Town by either walking along the coast road or you can take a water taxi to Kamini Harbour. From Kamini harbour you walk inland alongside the storm channel and the property is on the first bend surrounded by shady pine trees.
The lower ground floor apartment has two spacious bedrooms both on the right of the main living space. The larger room has three single beds and the slightly smaller room has a double bed.
To the left of the living space, you will find a double shower room. It's a long room with a large shower cubicle at both ends, two toilets and two wash hand basins. This, combined with the triple bedroom, is why we say that the Drosia apartment is especially suitable for families with young children.
Within the open plan living space you will find a dining table, large comfortable sitting area and a fully equipped kitchen.
From the main terrace, shallow steps lead down to a smaller courtyard for the Drosia Apartment, so if rented separately, guests in the Kodylenia have their own private outside sitting area.
This apartment is on the upper ground floor, has two bedrooms, (1 twin, 1 double) and two separate shower rooms.
From the main courtyard, a short flight of steps lead up to the apartment. In addition to using the main courtyard, there is a small private terrace to the side of the building off the double bedroom.
The Chara apartment has two separate shower rooms each with a large shower cubicle, toilet and hand basin.
The Chara Apartment is more open plan than our other apartment. The twin bed sleeping area through the arch from the living room can be closed off by drawing a heavy curtain across the arch for privacy. Similarly the inter-connecting door between the twin sleeping area and the master double bedroom can be closed to make both rooms separate if not being used by parents with a couple of children.
The apartments are holiday let on a self-catering basis. We have equipped both apartment kitchens with everything you will need if you prefer to cook and eat in. (However, the house is conveniently located within easy walking distance of all four of the tavernas & restaurants in Kamini and 100m from the sea taxi jetty in Kamini harbour if you want to go to Hydra Town.)
The Maragos Kamini supermarket is just 50 meters from the house and Dimitra has an excellent selection of fresh vegetables, salad, fruit, refreshments and a daily delivery of fresh bread as well as most essentials.
Each kitchen is equipped with plenty of saucepans, cooking utensils, crockery & cutlery as well as a full-sized electric oven, hob, extractor fan, coffee filter machine, kettle, juicer, microwave, toasting grill and a larder fridge/freezer.
Both apartments have an iron, board and clothes airer but there is only a washing machine in the Drosia Apartment.
Our holiday apartments are an extension of our home and we want you as our guests to feel as though you have come to visit your 'home from home'.
We have plenty of comfortable seating for you to relax when you get back from an energetic walk or swim.
Music is our passion so in both apartments you will find excellent sound and entertainment systems, a selection of music to play unless you want to connect you own. We also have a large plasma TV in both apartments, plus plenty of board games and books for you to enjoy.
Both apartments have air-conditioning and heating throughout and you will find excellent full strength WIFI access everywhere.

"As with all of the general information on HydraDirect and most of the business adverts, I have written the content of this page and taken most of the photos. I can from personal experience, having stayed with Eleni & Dimitris, highly recommend either or both apartments. They are perfectly located if you want to be out of the main Hydra Town, but still an easy level walk to reach it for a night out. And they are so well equipped it really is like being 'at home'. I particularly recommend the Kodylenia House to visitors who are staying in Hydra as guests attending weddings in Kamini. These are exceptionally well thought out mid-range apartments."
