``Simply perfect!!! Experience philotimo!``
The photos of the house do not do justice to the reality of this slice of Greek paradise. Our group of 16 people (3 families, including 8 teenaged girls), could not have found a more perfect arrangement for our week's stay. The outdoor areas were immaculately kept, in first class condition, and so tastefully adorned with varied flora and understated elegance. The sleeping accommodations were a great mixture of proximate and private. The game room kept the kids entertained at night. And the location, while remote, is only a short water taxi away from Hydra, which offers the perfect Greek island experience. Breathtaking natural beauty surrounds the property. Overall, it was the ideal expression of casual sophistication.
But the best things about the villa are the people involved! The owners (Alex & Vaso) do a fabulous job of being seen and unseen at the same time. They are reachable to answer questions and solve little problems, but one never felt that they were hovering at all. We have rented homes all over the world, and I must say these homeowners were absolutely the finest hosts we've ever encountered. They went far beyond what was necessary to ensure fun was had by all, and taught me the meaning of the Greek concept of ``philotimo`` (look it up). And their generous spirit extended to their fine staff as well. Every inquiry or request that we had was met with a smile and gracious attempt to satisfy our every need. We felt like kings and queens for a week. We learned a lot about Greece last week, but we learned more about Greek hospitality. Every person at the villa seemed dedicated to the happiness of every person in our group.
I'm genuinely reluctant to tell the world about this piece of heaven, since I want to go back as soon as possible, without having to wait in line! But if you are in a position to make this villa your vacation choice, you should do it right away. You won't be disappointed. From Chris · August 2017 stayed at VIP Beach Villa
This Villa is beyond amazing. There are actually 4 houses on the property. Vasiliki and Alex, the gracious hosts, made my trip to Greece one I will never forget. The location is excellent. It's a 1-2 hour fast ferry ride from Athens or a 2.5 hour drive by car—-the perfect base to explore the islands of Hydra, Póros, and Spétses. I drove to some notable significant historical sites like the Ancient Theatre of Epidourus, Sanctuary of Asklepios, Delphi, Napflio…I even drove to sacred Meteora. Ermioni in itself is a lovely port with fabulous tavernas. I will be back and very soon. From Mermaid · July 2017 stayed at VIP Beach Villa
“The rooms very nice and comfortable``
The staff is just wonderful, the breakfast is delicious, the rooms very nice and comfortable, the ocean lovely, the horses so beautiful and we were able to see some wonderful sights not too far from the villa. We had a yoga retreat group there and everyone felt welcome and happy ! Thank you Alex and Vassos !! From Amber, Honolulu, HI · September 2016 stayed at VIP Beach Villa

``Tropical magic in Greece``
We were group of 18, 10 adults and 8 kids travelling together as allways:-) It was not easy to find a house that satisfies all different criteria that we all put on table and we took time to make decision. From the start of the process, Alex&Vaso, the couple owners, were easy to communicate with and all that we needed from them was quickly fullfilled. Contract was clear and covered all potential issues and I was happy to have it:-)
Some of us arrived earlier than the agreed check-in time, we were received in the property and enjoyed the swim on the private beach which is in excellent state, warm and clean sea and very good sunbeds and umbrellas.
The owners awaited us warmly, with snacks and drinks, which we all appreciated. After that, they reapected our privacy more than we respected theirs:-), as we were celebrating the pure joy of being there together on such a beautiful place.
The house is well equipped, nicely and cosily furnished, in the two kitchens you can find all you need. I know that as we enjoy preparing meals together and it was perfect for us.
The rooms were very nicely decorated, beds comfortable.
I must admit that even though I am not a ``swimming pool person`` when I am on seaside, I appreciated a lot the fun we had in salted water allmost 5m deep swimming pool:-) Kids were jumping in the pool all the time, competing with adults, the jump was great amusement.
The most amazing are the colors, the lush garden could be part of parks of luxury hotel on Bali or elsewhere, dense, colorfull, so well kept and brought up! The pleasure of view you have just looking at all this is what stroke me the most. You inhale peace with every breath there, as the place is as isolated as you want it to be.
A lot of things to do around, though, nice trips to be made on islands, so it is on you to set up your decor.
I recommend highly this place to people bored by fancy 5* hotels looking for real rest in a beautiful place.
Thank you, Vaso&Alex From Andjela · July 2016 stayed at VIP Beach Villa
“We will continue to visit their Villa``
We had a wonderful stay at Alexandros and Vasiliki's beautiful villa (actually it's more like a resort!) this past summer. They were not only kind and gracious hosts but also became friends that we will continue to visit. Their knowledge of the area, relationships with locals and standing in the community allowed us to feel like royalty. If we had any requests (such as installing new expensive night lights for the tennis court), they fulfilled these requests with a smile. They also provided personal touches in the form of local food and wine which made us feel at home. We will continue to visit their villa and give them the highest recommendation to guests.

``Unique holiday for family of 40``
After extensive search on the web, we finally found a wonderful site for a family of 40, gathered together from all the continents to spend a week of quality time together. The sitting and eating areas around the pool were shady and pleasant, and made it easy to supervise the children. Five of the en-suite rooms in the VIP house were comfortable and well suited to couples, with or without young children. The remaining three rooms of the VIP house were OK for the teenagers. The other two houses on the same site had smaller rooms that were adequate for couples, but the third house was a little inaccessible to the pool and public area. The owners, Alex and Vaso, were helpful beyond expectation and made our stay an exceptional experience. They hired good cooks, who provided abundant, varied and healthy food that suited almost everyone. The beach is minimal and entering the sea is easy enough for adults, but not so easy for children. The facility is in it's early stage of operation and I believe that our feedback will help to upgrade certain aspects that are easy to improve for the future. We had a wonderful time and I recommend this venue. From Eva, Israel · September 2015 stayed at VIP Villa no.1 & Family Villa no.2 & Family Villa no.3
We were 2 families with 4 children in total and loved the villa and its layout (one family upstairs and the other on the ground floor), great views of the sea as soon as we arrived and the tennis court.
To top it off, we were wonderfully welcomed by the owners who could not do enough for us throughout our stay. Snacks, fruit, milk etc. were waiting for us upon arrival.
The place exudes serenity with the private beach 20m from the villa, fish and meat restaurants nearby.
It is an ideal place for families looking for peace and quiet From Mireille G, France August 2015 stayed at Family Villa no.3
