About the property

A 1br Cottage With Breath-taking Sea, Valley, And Mountain Views

Located above Kamini Harbor with a gentle climb, this cozy, nineteenth-century 50 m2 (540 sq. ft.) cottage with breath-taking views of the Saronic Gulf and Kamini Valley sleeps 2 in a loft-style queen-size bed. The open-plan living/dining/kitchen area features a full couch and chair, table for three, and fully equipped, traditional Greek cooking area (see photos). The private, often breezy terrace, with its handmade wooden love seat and gorgeous sea views, acts as a whole other room. There is a compact, full bath, air conditioning in the bedroom, free Wi-Fi, and phone for local calls. Castello (Kamini) Beach is steps away, as are three tavernas, two restaurants, and a shop for basic groceries and supplies. Just 12 to 15 minutes from Hydra Harbor along the coast road, 5 minutes by water taxi, Kamini Seaview Cottage is nestled into a quiet, sleepy fishing village, away from it all, even the megalopolis of Hydra Town.

Lovely cottage, beautiful views, very peaceful. Stay in Kamini was best part of trip to Greece !

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was exactly like the pictures, comfortable, charming, beautiful views and perfect location. Spent every morning and evening on the porch looking out at the water. There is a market close by for wine and food items. Lovely walk to Hydra port with excellent restaurants along the way and more good places to eat and shopping once you got there. I enjoyed my stay tremendously and will definitely return.

An amazing cottage with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Hydra is a beautiful island with no cars, motorcycles or bicycles. The cottage location in Kamini is very quiet. Unbelievably quiet at night! Amazing host, very helpful.

Authentic and Amazing !!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a special place this is! This house has character and personality. A short walk from the port of Kamini, the terrace has a beautiful view over looking the small town out towards the sea. I enjoyed morning coffee outside, cooking in the well-appointed kitchen and being within walking distance of Hydra town. The house is perfect for a couple or single person wishing for peace and quiet. I appreciated the nice linens and well designed bathroom. A perfect place for a creative retreat or romantic getaway.

What an amazing place ! Jennifer is a super host !

  • 5 of 5

This place is really gorgeous, quiet, clean and magic ! We loved having our breakfast on the deck while looking at the amazing view. Jennifer is a super host, very nice, friendly and helpful. Kamini is a short walk to Hydra Port and has at least three taverna where you can eat delicious food. People are kind and respectful. There are a few beaches close by and the water is clear blue. A real dream !
