Freddy's has been lovingly owned and maintained by the same American family since 1964. My wife and I, and our twin boys, own and occupy several other houses on the island, and are always available to answer any questions and fix any problems immediately. We are happy to share our knowledge of the island, and show you our favorite swimming spots, tavernas, and cafes, as well as make introductions to make your stay on Hydra more enjoyable. After being here for 35+ years, we know just about everybody on the island- locals, as well as summer 'regulars'. We find that we really enjoy working with our guests to help them enjoy Hydra to the fullest, and enjoy helping our guests find the things they enjoy doing...whether it is boating, hiking, or dining. It gives us a lot of satisfaction to help our guests get the most out of their stay. Our fifteen year old twin boys enjoy showing the children of our guests their favorite places to swim, and other fun activities on the island.
Dino purchased this Villa in 1964
Why Dino chose Idra
My Uncle Freddy bought our house in 1964 because of it's exceptional beauty, privacy, and location. Freddy's is up high enough to have spectacular views of the sea, as well as the 'peaks' of Hydra, yet still low enough to walk to and from the beach and the main port of Hydra with ease. Kaminia is considered by locals to be the nicest part of the island; it is quiet, and never overrun with tourists--even during high season, yet some of the better restaurants on Hydra are located within a few minutes walk from the house.
What makes this Villa unique
We give our guests a level of personal attention that no absentee owner could provide. We can help coordinate travel to and from Athens Airport to our front door. We meet our guests upon arrival to the island, arrange for donkey transportation of guests luggage to the house, and personally familiarize our guests with our home, and the island. We will show you our favorite restaurants and shops, and love to take our guests out on our personal boat for boat picnics. We speak English, French, and Italian, as well as Greek. Our trustworthy housekeeper Pepa has been taking care of our home for over 15 years, and is available as often as you like. We will advise you on expert medical care should the need arise.

A wonderful place to base yourself in Hydra.
We had a party of ten people so we also booked the house immediately next door. We loved the ability to dine together outside on the veranda, using the well equipped kitchen. The house is close to all you need but outside of the main port which we found perfect. We walked to the main port (about 20 minutes along the coastal path) and also caught the water taxi which was a great experience and inexpensive. There are lovely swimming spots within walking distance which we took advantage of more than once a day. There are many steps to navigate but you get used to it, plus the donkeys are there to assist with delivering luggage or a large grocery/wine purchase. This was part of the charm of the location. The website was a little out of date on number of beds as it showed five rather than four beds in the main house. Fortunately having booked next door and some lateral thinking it all worked out. Our house keeper, Pepa, was fantastic, meeting us at the main port, organising fresh fish one night from local fishermen, local tips and arranging donkeys as we needed them for transportation of our luggage. I very recommend this house.
The perfect retreat!
Everything at Freddy's house was perfect! The design and quality of the house, the location and the view from the terraces and the warm welcome we received from everyone was just incredible. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday with our family. The island itself is beautiful and tranquil and the house is in the perfect spot to explore it all. We will definitely be coming back! Dino organized everything for us beforehand and was so helpful during our stay as well. The house is the perfect mix of relaxed, casual luxury. Thank you so much!
The perfect vacation home
This was our second stay at Freddy's house and it did not disappoint. The house is beautifully furnished with large sunny rooms and tremendous views. The home is well stocked. The beds are incredible comfortable and the terraces make for great outdoor living. I cannot wait to return.
Thank you for your lovely review Nicole. I’m so pleased that you chose to stay at Freddy’s house for a second time. I tend to think that the best “review” is a returning guest. That is why we do our best to make sure that every stay at Freddy’s is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I hope we will have the pleasure of your returning again.
Another fantastic time at this beautiful house.
A Lovely House On An Incredible Island
We truly enjoyed our 3 week stay on Hydra at Freddy’s. It had wonderful views, lots of space and all the comforts we needed to truly feel at home. Trina and Dino were very helpful and hospitable. We figured out where the grocery stores were and we knew our way around in no time. We also had our favourite swimming spots. The island is fantastic with its unique character and all the wonderful restaurants and shops. We will definitely be back again soon. Thanks
Incredible villa with beautiful interiors
Our stay at Freddy’s Villa was excellent. The house was fully fitted with everything we needed and the owners Dino and Trina were extremely helpful and made us feel right at home. We arrived on a Sunday to find one of the air conditioning was down and Dino was straight over to fix the issue with an engineer. We couldnt have asked for a better service. The house is truely stunning with beautiful funishings and interiors. Thank you Dino & Trina!
Freddy's is located in the nicest part of Kaminia,which is the most beautiful residential area on Hydra. The beaches and restaurants near our house are some of the best on the island.
