The Andros House is a beautiful maisonette just in front of the longest beach of the island. Access from ATH airport is very easy. There are 2 ferryboats in the morning and 2/3 in the afternoon. The boat transfer does not take more than 2 hours and it is very pleasant. The beach in front of the complex has three organised areas with a beach bar on each, sun-beds, refreshments and water sports although the major length of the beach is peaceful, untouched, hospitable and available to all swimmers.

The space

The Andros House is just 100ft in front of the organised beach of St. Peter's (Agios Petros), which is the longest beach on the island. It has also been awarded with a blue flag and is considered by most the best beach of the island.

The Golden Sand (Chrisi Amos), which is the most cosmopolitan beach of Andros, is situated 300ft away from the complex.

The Andros House is 2 miles away from Gavrio, the picturesque harbour of Andros, where you can find banks, super markets, pharmacies, tourist kiosks, as well as an on-call doctor. It is less than 20 miles away from the capital of the island. The famous tourist resort of the island, Batsi, is just 3 miles away.

The beach in front of the complex has three organised areas, where one can rent sun-beds and parasols for the day. Both setups have bars with snacks and drinks. There is also a separate area for beach volley ball. For those interested in water sports one can get lessons or just rent windsurfing equipment, canoes and SUPs. If you are more interested in quite relaxed sunbathing, the largest part of the beach is peaceful and quiet.

In the wider area of The Andros House, apart from the beach one can find a few traditional tavernas serving fresh fish, meat and local produce. Also, there is a small supermarket selling from champagne and vintage wines to the very basic. There is also a small bakery for fresh bread and cheese/spinach pies.

Guest access

Guests arriving at the Athens International Airport can pick up the bus to the port of Rafina, which takes 40min and costs 5euros. At Rafina port there are several ferryboats all day long. One would rather prebook via various online travel services (i.e. openseas). The fare costs 19euros and takes less than 2 hours. If you are on other islands, like Mykonos or Tinos, there is a 2 hour connection to Andros, as well.

Other things to note

There is a double bed that can sleep 2 comfortably upstairs (bedroom). The property has a cot and a baby chair. The baby bed fits both up and downstairs. There is also a sofa bed downstairs and if necessary a folded bed with a comfortable mattress in the open plan living room.

In summary, the property can fit 3 adults and 1 kid OR 2 adults and 2 kids.

We (a couple with two little children) had a wonderful stay at Billy's house. The house is exactly as you see it in the pictures, clean spacious and with everything you need. Location is perfect because just a jump to reach the sandy beach. Anistasia, Billy's mother, has been a wonderful host: we were welcomed with special local cakes and she even cooked us a lovely Greek dinner. We totally recommend this place to anyone.

The place is part of a small complex of modern holiday apartments, very close to Agios Petros beach (almost on it), one of the best beaches on the island, and on the road from the port (Gavrio) to the top tourist location of Batsi. It is of the type called "maisonette" in Greece, i.e. a small house with two stories. On the ground floor there is a spacious living room, with a sofa and a couch that double as beds, a kitchen (well equipped for a holiday house), a WC, and a patio. On the first floor there is a bedroom (with a double bed, a baby cot and a large wardrobe), a bathroom and a terrace with a wonderful view of the beach. The host (Bill's mother Anastasia) was very friendly and helpful. All in all, the place is a very good choice for holiday accommodation, and we enjoyed our time there very much.

We spent 15 great days of vacation with our son (2 years) in the home of Billy. The house is lovely and very well equipped. It is very close to a beautiful beach which purpose beach bars and preserving quiet areas, and very close to a supermarcket, wich is very convenient. The house opens on a pretty enclosed garden for children. It is protected from the road wich is little busy. Billy gave us all the informations we need before we arrived and Anastasia, the mother of Billy, has very kindly welcomed us, like "a family". We really recommend you the billy house to spend your vacation.

We spent a couple of weeks in Billy's house in August and evething was fantastic. Nice house with all the stuff you need (coffee machine, wash machine, fridge and freezer) a very nice patio, a large balcony and a common garden. The see (a huge sandy beach with amazing water) is in front of the house, you just have to cross the road. The host was so kind and she welcome us with homemade jam and fresh juice and she help us finding a car rental in the island. We are a couple with a 2 years old baby and we found in the house all the facilities we needed (baby cot, high chair). So... highly recommended! Ugo and Camilla
