The Sunny Apartment does indeed live up to its name. On the top floor of a traditional village house, it is bright, tidy and comfortable. Sun worshippers can enjoy a huge roof terrace with enviable far-reaching views of inland Hydra.
This holiday accommodation comprises:
Maximum: 4 guests (plus baby in the cot)
Minimum: 4 nights
The Sunny Apartment is located an equal distance between Hydra & Kamini harbours in the residential area of Inland Kamini, close to the Four Corners grocery store. From the small square behind the building, this holiday apartment has independent stairs to the side of the building, then opens straight into the living space on the top floor.
Close by you will find the Tetsis House, the Kountouriotis Mansion Museum and Leonard Cohen Street. It takes an averagely fit person ten minutes to walk down to either Hydra Town or Kamini Harbour. The closest restaurant is the Pirofani Taverna in Kamini, or you can quickly walk over the brow of the hill, then down to Avlaki for dinner at the Techne Restaurant if you want a sea view.
The living room has plenty of furniture with a sofa bed that opens as a double bed which is suitable for adults or children. Two sets of double doors lead to the huge sunny roof terrace. You will find a TV with a USB port so you can bring your own choice of music on a stick. There are lots of children's books and games for families to use.
The kitchen is well equipped for family-living if you prefer to dine at home.
Unusually for Hydra, the bathroom includes a three-quarter size bath which makes bathtime a lot easier if you have toddlers. There is a shower over the bath.
The double bedroom is spacious enough to put up the travel baby cot which is available free of charge on request. You'll find a comfortable queen size double bed a large wardrobe and drawers so you can unpack comfortably.
There are double doors to the roof terrace from the bedroom, so it is possible for mum & dad to enjoy sitting under the stars without disturbing children asleep in the living room.
The roof terrace of the Sunny Apartment is probably its most appealing feature. For 2018, Katerina the owner has added a couple of sun-loungers that guests will be able to move to the most adventageous position when perfecting their tan!
There are four adjustable awnings for you to easily position to create just the right amount of light and shade you prefer.
The terrace faces east and so it catches the early morning sunrise as it climbs over the craggy mountain side to the east of Hydra town. The scenery around the house is spectacular and inspirational for artists especially as the sun changes the light and shade as it traverses its way to the west. So bringing you sketch pad and water colours is highly recommended.
For those of you who are interested in looking after the environment, Katerina's husband Vaggelis is a bee keeper - NOT at the house, but up in the mountains. If you would be interested in seeing his working hives, he would be delighted to take you for a visit. He does have a few bee-keepers outfits but so as not to disturb the bees only 2 people can visit at a time.
And if you visit the Sunny Apartment at the right time of the year, it is possible that you will receive an authentic thyme scented jar of Hydra honey!
The price is per night for the whole apartment let on a self-catering basis.
