The Stone House is owned and tended by a family who has been spending time on Hydra for the past four decades. Visitors will be received at the port by our wonderful on-island concierge.
She is a multi-lingual resident of Hydra, and will introduce you to the
house and share her knowledge of the sights and secrets of the island.
Although you will have complete privacy during your stay, assistance or advice will only be a phone call away.
We aim to make you as comfortable as we can, while also granting you
access to real Greek island life.
As a service to our guests, we stock the villa with Korres natural bath products, filtered drinking water, and complimentary arrival treats like wine, beer, soda, coffee, tea, fresh fruit, cheese and bread.
We are happy to organize any additional provisions you may need;
those requests and fee quotes are handled at the time of booking.
We provide weekly maid service as part of the rental. Daily service can be organized for an additional fee, and we can also recommend a local chef or babysitter for you to hire should you need one.
Please bear in mind that visitors to Hydra are required to climb
stairs, so the Stone House is not suitable for anyone unable to do so.
Typically, Olive and Stone arranges for donkeys to transport visitors' luggage from the port to the property – a truly unique Hydra experience! Donkeys can also be hired to transport groceries and supplies from the village to the house. Payment for donkey services is the responsibility of the guest.
