Overview

About the property

Seafront 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom with sea and sunset views, walk to beach

Set at a seafront location in Koumbara, with uninterrupted views of the Aegean blue sea and spectacular sunsets, the experience of brand new Villa Ios Blue is all about seclusion, elegance and comfort. Villa Ios Blue enjoys a prime location, only 5 mins walk to two sandy beaches (Koumbara and Tzamaria), a few minutes walk to 4 quality restaurants and just a few minutes drive to Gialos beach (1.3kms), Ios port (2kms) , Ios Chora (3.5km) and Mylopotas beach (5.5km).

The villa size is 160 sq.m. on a 6,000m piece of land that reaches out to the sea. It is actually an architectural marvel, built with respect to local tradition and with true attention to detail. From the outside, the villa structure combines the Cycladian white with pure local stone. All verandas and terraces surrounding the villa are made out of the same stone, whereas the inside of the house is dressed in eternal white all around. The villa interior features a sitting room with two sofa beds and fireplace, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, guest wc and two large bedrooms. The master bedroom features a king-size bed (1.80 x 2.10) and ensuite bathroom with a beautiful stone washbasin and a large built-in shower. The second bedroom is actually a studio with its own sink facility, small fridge, private entrance and veranda with outdoor seating. It features a queen-size bed (1.60 x 2.00), two single beds and ensuite built-in shower with stone washbasin. All bedrooms enjoy wonderful seaviews.

The villa's body structure was diligently built in a way so as to minimize the impact of Cycladian northern winds, offering protection where you need it most, at the two main verandas. More specifically, the main veranda offers seating and dining facilities while a long stone built-in bench reaches out to the barbeque. The barbeque itself was meticulously constructed to harmonically blend with the body of a large rock which the owners left untouched at its natural position. Verandas and terraces of 300sq.m. extend around the villa.

How to reach us? Ios is linked by boat with the port of Athens Piraeus. In the summer there are several boats everyday. The high speed boats take 3 hours to reach Ios from Piraeus. There are also normal boats that take longer. There are also connections with other islands, like Santorini, Paros, Naxos and Crete.

The villa is 5 minutes drive from the port.

We recommend that you hire a car during your stay (preferably a 4X4) as this will be the best way to explore the island, however if you wish, you could rent scooters or use public transportation. There is regular bus service throughout the summer to the port, Chora (the town of Ios) and Mylopota beach.

About The Owner

I was born and raised in Greece. My grandparents were born in Ios and we still have relatives in the island. My wife and I have studied in London and the US. We both have MBA degrees. I have worked for more than 15 years at Wall Street, NY and my wife more than 10 years in London in banking. We love traveling and have visited more than 80 countries around the world.

Why The Owner chose Municipality of Ios

Our villa is a dream come true for us. We spent an enormous amount of time, energy and money on every architectural detail, while we tried hard to have a minimum impact on the environment. This is our own family villa that we rent it only to sophisticated travelers during the time that we do not use it ourselves. The villa is brand new and has all the modern amenities. It is very important for us that our visitors feel like they are staying in their own home and treat it as if it were their own.

Paradise on the Aegean

  • 5 of 5

We visited Ios and stayed at this property late last year, 2016. The house is set on a hill with unobstructed views of the sea. Breathless first impression! We are a family of four and had taken the ferry to the island and were itching to get into the holiday spirit. It took us almost an hour to enter the main house after our arrival as we could not get enough of the sun and water views. Absolutely beautiful. Our host had information on all the beautiful beaches and the town area on the island and believe me those were tough choices. The house itself has a fully stocked kitchen and our host very thoughtfully had filled the refrigerator with goodies for our immediate needs. There were towels galore and the beds were already made. The island is best explored walking and has some excellent fish restaurants all within walking distance. We visited most of the beaches that had been suggested by our host but our favorite was the one right below to the house. The sunsets are spectacular and if you wish for a higher vantage point, it is a pleasant walk to the Club/lounge in the main town. Another of our host's excellent suggestion.

Un lugar paradisíaco

  • 5 of 5

Un lugar de ensueño, donde la sofisticación y la simpleza encuentran su equilibrio. La calidez y hospitalidad de sus anfitriones, dos banqueros que han vivido en NY y que su sueño fue construir ese lugar tan especial. El atardecer en sus tonos naranjas es como se viviera dentro de la casa, los barcos que pasan y el tiempo se detiene.

Cerca podés comer los mejores pescados y la mejor comida griega. Imperdible.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

If you want to enjoy and grasp the spirit of the Aegean, this is an ideal place to go. Ios is a magnificent island, full of splendid beaches, a very beautiful main village and a relaxing and joyful atmosphere. Very youthful and erotic. The house is also ideal for enjoying the island. It is conveniently located near the port and the main city, yet it stands on its own, securing serenity and total peace. From its verandas you can absorb the most gratifying sunset. The house is simple and at the same time aristocratic and totally adequate for summer living. We particularly liked the architectural setup of the property, whereby the two living quarters are adjacent, but at the same time separate, thus securing independence for the two parties that occupy them.

I very warmly recommend and I really hope to be back soon. Thanx!

Amazing views, exquisite architecture

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Villa Ios Blue. Fantastic location with amazing sunsets and sea views. This is a real villa, not a commercial one "built to rent".The owners rent the villa when they do not use it themselves. We traveled with our two kids We stayed at the master bedroom while the kids stayed at the studio. We spent most of the time at the main veranda while the kids had their own veranda in front of the studio. The kids had a lot of fun and these days that is what counts most. The villa is close to 2 beaches and two nice restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the grilled fresh fish with a glass of ouzo at the Koumbara Beach Restaurant. The villa is a short drive to the town and port. A couple of times we even walked to the town to have dinner, a 15-20 minute hike. The owners were very friendly and spent a lot of time giving us information about the island. We are looking forward in coming back again!
