Freddy's holiday house is an elegantly restored & modernised, 200-year-old country villa overlooking the sea with wraparound views of the village of Kamini and the countryside. The accommodation sleeps 8-10 guests in spacious comfort on 3 floors (4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms), for a minimum of 7 nights. Roof terrace, balcony and courtyard garden (with cooking and dining areas). Well equipped kitchen. Close to the beach & local tavernas. Air-conditioning, strong wifi, welcome pack & cleaning included.

The space

Freddy's is a drop-dead gorgeous example of a house for gracious living on Hydra Island Greece. It's the perfect Hydra holiday house for extended families to share as there's plenty of space for everyone to spread out and not get on top of each other.

Elegantly restored and modernised, this 200-year-old country villa overlooks the sea with wraparound views of the village of Kamini and the countryside. The accommodation sleeps 8-10 guests in spacious comfort on 3 floors (4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms), for a minimum of 7 nights.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire house and garden. It is detached, walled and completely private and not overlooked. Very importantly, the house is located in Lower Kaminia, which means not too many steps, and thus it is easy to come and go as often as you like during the day.

Interaction with guests

We live on Hydra Island all year and own several houses which can be used to accommodate guests coming for events such as weddings. We personally meet our guests upon arrival, arrange for mule transportation of guests luggage to the house, and familiarize our guests with the home. We enjoy helping our guests customize their stay on Hydra to suit their particular interests. We will tell you the best restaurants and beaches, coordinate boat excursions for an afternoon, advise on the best museums and cultural activities, and assist with making any medical arrangements, should needs the need arise. We will also hook you up with our Tech guy, if you have any technical issues with your computers.

We realize that getting to Hydra can be challenging. In order to make travel to and from the island as easy as possible, we often arrange for our licensed taxi driver and trusted family friend to meet our guests as they step out of the Athens airport arrival terminal, or at any place of their choosing in Athens and transport them to Metochi, on the mainland just across from Hydra. There our boat taxi driver will meet you and take you straight to the dock in Kamini, where we will meet you and bring you up to the house. Should you be coming to Hydra by High speed ferry on Helenic Seaways we can make reservations for you, which usually saves our guests time and aggrevation. And of course, we will meet you in Port, arrange donkey transportation of your luggage, and take you to the house. We speak English, French, Italian, as well as Greek. Our trustworthy housekeeper, Peppa, has been taking care of our home for 10 years, and is available for cleaning and cooking whenever as you like.

We stayed at Freddy's house for a fabulous five nights with a family of 5 adults and 3 kids. The house is beautifully renovated and furnished. We spent most of our time on the terrace with beautiful water views, the kitchen is well set up and stocked with all the water, so many spices and basics you need as well as great cookbooks! It was lovely to be in Kamini outside of the main port with fabulous swimming spots nearby. The upstairs bedroom was my favourite bedroom ever with 8 beautiful windows looking over the town. We loved our stay and will be back thanks Dino & Trini

Fantastic traditional villa in the charming Kamini village at walking distance from the centre of Hydra. The villa enjoys amazing sunset views over the sea. The 3 main bedrooms are extremely spacious, comfortable with very good beds and are very nicely decorated. We could accommodate 10 people (including 2 younger children) as we could also use the basement room. The house is fully equipped. The villa is located nearby the Kamini port (5-10 mns walk) which gives you the option to take taxi boats to Hydra town or to the beaches. Although there are no sandy beaches, the sea is beautiful and we really enjoyed the quality of the organised beaches that Trina recommended to us. It is worth mentioning that having the host welcoming you at your arrival in the port and getting all the great recommendations for restaurants, shops... makes a real difference. Thank you Trina! Last point for anybody planning to visit Hydra: be aware that you will need to walk a lot, which is great for your health but can be painful if you have troubles walking.

I stayed one week in the house with my family and we all enjoyed our stay very much. The house is well located, about 20 min walking distance from the harbour and near to some nice beaches. There is everything one needs: fully equipped kitchen, big rooms and 2 great terasses with a wonderful view on the sea. Last but not least, Trina and Dino are very friendly and helpful !

What a splendid house. Perfect for any group of travellers. We enjoyed it thoroughly for the second time now, as did our small daughter Josie. Excellently decorated, clean, with perfect hosts, very close to the main port and to Kaminia. Scenic view. We will come back in no time!

Trina and Dino were very quick to respond to questions. Trina met us at the ferry, arranged for donkeys to get our luggage up to the house and not only escorted us to the house but also gave us a brief tour, including an introduction to the owners of the local market. They were always a call away but left us to enjoy the beautiful accommodations. We could not have asked for more.

I was born in Washington, D.C. and graduated from Yale in 1981. I have been in the real estate and building business all my life. My uncle Freddy came to Hydra in 1964 and bought Freddy's House, (Freddy's House is our larger house, which is also available for rent). The Bradlee family has owned and lovingly cared for Freddy's House for 50 years. My wife and I purchased Nicaela's House in 2003, and began renovations. In 2010, I moved to Hydra with my wife and twin boys. We enjoy renovating old houses, boating, cooking at home, and traveling around Europe. We have particularly enjoyed working with the people who rent our houses to make sure they have an ideal stay and experience Hydra to the fullest.
