About Gerry Thomas

I grew up, live and work in Athens but working in Patmos every summer since 1998, and additionally my 'love' connected with the island's atmosphere, prompted me to start a project in Patmos. My family and I own the optical shop in Patmos, and I spend a lot of time working there,especially in summer.

Gerry Thomas purchased this house in 2012

Why Gerry Thomas chose Europe

Everybody's wish for vacation is a dreamy stay near the beach.

For that reason, there was an effort to build a beach house in Patmos, in a perfect accordance to the island's traditional architecture, located at the most idyllic area in an almost private sandy beach, surrounded by the greatest atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

- The great atmosphere,the feeling of sea breeze and the sound of the bubbling waves.

- The decoration and the architecture of the house.

- The peaceful location and the fact that despite the district is not very crowded you can get at every corner of the island in a few minutes.

- The joy of visiting Patmos under the best living conditions.

Absolutely perfect - a slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gerry's Celene House was fantastic in every way. Communication from Gerry in the lead up to the holiday was excellent, including letting us know about the area, transport, favourite restaurants and more. On arrival the property was immaculate- even more beautiful than in the photos. The location is perfect, just a short drive from Scala but millions of miles away from the bustle - even on days that were very crowded in Scala and at the popular beaches, Sapsilla was quiet and serene. We had one of the best holidays of our lives at Celene House and we will be back.

Lovely house on a quiet beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Celene House for ten days. It is a lovingly decorated summer house with smart details on a great location. It's just 5 min drive from Patmos's main village Skala. Sapsila beach is just couple of meters away and it's a great pleasure to have a coffee in the morning at the terrace looking at the morning sea.Very clean and well maintained with regular cleanings by lovely Vera.

Gerry is a very friendly host who is is just an e-mail/ text away to answer any question or give advice.

Beautiful location, fantastic house and host

  • 5 of 5

This location, accommodation and the island provided an idyllic setting for a relaxing holiday with places to visit.

Gerry was a fantastic host. My wife and I have stayed in self-catering villas all over Europe and this one provided the best range of provisions on our arrival and we were still using them at the end of our two week stay.

Gerry was very attentive and helpful and interested in addressing our every need. He was very friendly and Vera the cleaner was great and efficient.

Gerry is looking to improve the property all the time which is beautifully decorated. It is well maintained and we would recommend it as a delightful place to visit. Adults and children will enjoy this villa and it's easy access of the beach directly from the garden is brilliant. Neighbouring villages are easily accessible, it has a variety of interesting restaurants, Chora is a fascinating village with narrow streets and there are many different bays to visit. Mid June was a great time to visit because the temperature was very pleasant and the island not too crowded.

We would definitely consider a return visit.

A Perfect Place in a Peaceful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We've hummed and ahhh'd over writing this review, as then we'd have to let people know about this gem of a villa and risk it being full the next time we want to book!

The pictures show exactly what's in the villa, but it's more spacious than shown. It is light and airy and everything was thought off, from the welcome pack, to the comfortable beds, proper wardrobe storage, everything you need in the kitchen and great sitting spaces, inside and out. A plus is the upper terrace, watching the yachts sail past at sunset with a glass of wine.

The 'ace' card though, is the location. The beach is just a few steps away and virtually private! Gerry, the owner, was incredibly helpful and thoughtful and there are even fold-up sunbeds to take down to the beach, that's if you can tear yourself away from the hammock! You will need a car or scooter to drive into the main town of Skala, but there is a great restaurant a short walk along the beach from the villa and the popular Grikos, with numerous tavernas, is approx a 20-30min walk.

There is no 'downer' to this place. The only raised eyebrow (if I really had to raise one!) would be the small shower space.

It's perfect for young families and couples and we will definitely return! Thank you Gerry for creating such a perfect place in a peaceful spot.

Nice house in a quite place

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine très agréable dans cette jolie et confortable maison à l'écart de l'agitation. La location était conforme à notre attente: bien aménagée, cuisine bien équipée, belle décoration. Ma mer toute proche incite à la baignade, et la terrasse est idéale pour prendre les repas avec vue sur la mer et se relaxer en fin de journée.

Si nous n'avons pas rencontré Gerry, il est toujours resté disponible pour répondre à nos questions avant et pendant le séjour. Le guide qu'il a rédigé pour prodiguer ses conseils nous aussi été précieux.

Une voiture est nécessaire pour découvrir les charmes et les plages de cette belle ile.

Peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks and have had a relaxed family vacations (2 children).The house is as described, well equiped, clean, far from the nightlife, safe, its sea views from the upper terrace, and having breakfast outside in the morning was just fantastic! Gerry was always available for any doubt we had, before and durign our stay. We recommend a car and to rent a small boat to go around the island . It is perfect for small families.
