The internal spaces exude the calm that you seek while in our four luxurious rooms-studios you will find the comforts that will make you feel like home as they are taken take with detail. The simplicity in luxury ties up harmoniously with the stone and the timber and leaves the natural beauty of the island pure.

A space of relaxation and calm has been created in our garden where you can enjoy your coffee or your drink next to the Jacuzzi with a view to the harbor.

Petros house is a dream,
“Petros house is a dream,”
The whole experience of going to Hydra for the first time was a dream mainly because of Petros. He was always available to answer our questions, helped a lot with directions to the house and on top of that upgraded us to a better suite. I do not have words to describe how well he treated us. Petros house is a dream, beautiful sunsets in his terrace, feeling completely at home in the beautifully decorated suites, peaceful setting and amazingly beautiful! We are completely sure that we will be back and we will stay at Petros house again, it made us fell in love for this dream place that it is Hydra. We've followed Petros recommendations of bars and restaurants and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much for everything Petros, you have made our stay unforgettable! April 2017

Petros' place was fantastic -- like Hydra itself
“Petros' place was fantastic -- like Hydra itself”
“Wow! Petros' place was fantastic -- like Hydra itself, it was earthy and chic, warm, stylish and sexy! I ended up staying at Petros' other property closer to the port due to a 7am ferry I had to catch, but either way, either at this Sunset Studio or at Portadelmar, you cannot go wrong! Each place is immaculate, comfortable, with great views. Stone walls, air conditioning, lovely linens and privacy made my experience a very wonderful one. As I was traveling on my own, feeling so comfortable and happy made a big impact on my holiday experience. For all solo women travelers out there, you can be sure that you will be completely safe here, with a host that really has a big heart and a good deal of practical information. Petros was very charming and caring; I experienced a minor health issue while on Hydra en route to Athens and the US, and Petros stepped in with helpful information, name and contact info of his private doctor, and basically made me feel like I wasn't alone, but among caring friends. There is a cafe where you can have breakfast at a discounted rate and be served unlimited coffee through an arrangement Petros has made, and the food and coffees are excellent. Incidentally, the owner of this cafe made a very good impression when he was quick to tell me that I overpaid him by handing him two 50 Euro bills instead of the one I thought I gave him. I would have never known as the bills were stuck together. It really underscored the integrity of this cafe and the experience staying with Petros overall. I just can't say enough good things! I left loving Hydra with all my heart (lovely footpaths, wonderful restaurants, friendly neighborhoods of cats, warm people). I hope to come back soon for a much longer time! ” What Craig loved about your listing: I loved all the hot water with great water pressure, the stylish look of the place, the comfortable bed and linens, the convenience of having a kitchen, and of course, the hot tub and sauna! It was a fantastic experience. Thank You! What Craig thought you could improve about the experience: I don't think you can improve, Petros. You are already 5-star! May 2016

Amazingly accommodating!
“Amazingly accommodating! ”
Amazingly accommodating! I don't need to go into details but Petros personally saved our vacation in Hydra. You can't put yourself in better hands. Highly recommended - he deserves a place in the Airbnb Hall of Fame. May 2016

We just came back from a FANTASTIC weekend in Hydra
“We just came back from a FANTASTIC weekend in Hydra”
Petros was a great host and portadelmare a great choice when you are in Hydra. The place is right next to the port, which comes in handy if you think that Hydra has no cars or motorbikes. The room was clean and spacious. It was fully equipped with everything one might need. Plus the spot at the top of the villa with little tables was a great spot to watch the sunset. Petros was very welcoming, giving us tips on where to go and what to do. We even hang out on Saturday night, which turned out to be a fun night lasting till the small hours of the morning. Thank you Hydra and Thank you Petros! Leave Public Response July 2016

Perfect holiday
“Perfect holiday”
My friend and I stayed at Portadelmare for 2 nights last weekend and it was nothing but a great experience. Petros upgraded us to a bigger room/suite upon arrival (because another friend of mine was possibly joining us the next day) for no extra cost:) The location is PERFECT, literally 1 min walk from the harbour and the shops and cafes! The room/suite was huge and had a nice little kitchen where we could make breakfast/store food and drinks in the fridge. There is also a really sweet cleaning lady who greeted us every morning and made up our room. We really enjoyed the beautiful facilities at Portadelmare with all the fun little details. Overlooking Hydra harbour from the jacuzzi was really something! Hydra is a beautiful island and we were blessed with sunny and warm weather! I definitely recommend staying with Petros and we hope to be back one day to explore more of this magnificent island :) Thank you for having us!

Stunning studio with exceptional views and a fantastic host
“Stunning studio with exceptional views and a fantastic host”
The studio was very nice! We really enjoyed our stay there. The most amazing part about the studio is the view. Petros was very kind to us. He waited for us when we arrived and he took us to the studio. He also gave us a lot of information about the island and what we could do during our stay there. We would definitely come back if we visit Hydra again!

This is the way to experience Hydra
“This is the way to experience Hydra”
Το δωμάτιο είναι ακριβώς όπως περιγράφεται. Πολύ κοντά στο λιμάνι και προσεγμένο σε κάθε του λεπτομέρεια. Καθαρό, περιποιημένο, ιδιαίτερο περιβάλλον, δίνοντας την ευκαιρία της άμεσης πρόσβασης στο κέντρο αλλά και την ηρεμία της τέλειας βεράντας με την αμφιθεατρική θέα όλου του λιμανιού και τον αυτόματο πωλητή που σου έδινε την ευκαιρία να απολαύσεις όποιο ρόφημα χωρίς να βγεις. Ο,τι πρέπει για χαλάρωση και διασκέδαση. Ευχαριστούμε θα ξαναέρθουμε σίγουρα!

“This is a great place and Petros is a wonderful host ”
This is a great place and Petros is a wonderful host - really fun to chat with. The B&B is charming, well maintained, comfortable, plenty of space, has a great shower, and a lovely courtyard. We enjoyed the jacuzzi. Cannot say enough positives. Looking forward to another visit.

Portadelmare has a great location
“Portadelmare has a great location”
Portadelmare has a great location, rooms are beautiful and clean, the area in the back has several levels with nicely decorated seating areas and a jacuzzi. Petros was great in communicating and very nice when I met him when I checked in. Can highly recommend this place when staying in Hydra.

We had an awesome stay in Hydra at Petros place! We've been traveling for 3 months and this was one of the best experiences so far. The view from the balcony was spectacular. We enjoyed the quiet small town atmosphere and the hiking trails

The apartment is much nicer than I could have imagined
“The apartment is much nicer than I could have imagined”
Petros was a fantastic host and waited for us at port as we arrived. The apartment is much nicer than I could have imagined and had dining areas/hot tub with the best view of Hydra. The location couldn't be any more convenient. It was also a pleasant surprise to have fresh sheets and laundry each day. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on Hydra.

““Petros is a remarkable host.”
“Petros is a remarkable host. He made himself available for us whenever needed, answered all of our questions and even gave tips of the best places to go for food, beaches, and views. Beautiful rooms/very clean/daily maid service. Very nice approachable person that I would have no issue renting from again. Thanks for everything Petros!” July 2016

“Amazing place, don't even think to stay anywhere else in Hydra”
““Amazing place, don't even think to stay anywhere else in Hydra””
We stayed at Portadelmare Guest House during the Greek Orthodox Easter. Both Petros and his wife are very nice people, welcoming, explaining everything, and always willing to help. Another very important and very positive point is that it is literally 30 meters from the port. And even though it is so close to the action, it is also quiet at the same time, which is great. It is really amazing to be able to go back anytime, for just 5 minutes, as everything is close-by. It is a great plus, especially as in the island cars are not allowed, and one would have to walk with the suitcases. It is really convenient. Then the rooms are very beautiful, bright, really nicely decorated, original, big enough, clean and very well taken care of. There is also a very beautiful area behind the hotel, where you have some tables and chairs where you can relax when drinking your coffee, you can have sauna and Jacuzzi, in a very traditional and original location. Even if there is no breakfast served in the guest house, there is a 20% discount in any breakfast of one coffee place around (Skipper) and 10% discount in any other menu item of the same bar. You can even bring the breakfast from the bar to the hotel, so you basically have your breakfast at the hotel. Obviously the place had wifi, TV, kitchenette and anything one would need. Additionally, the owner also has a store with nice jewelry, which you should also visit, also by the port. May, 2016

““Petros and his team are excellent!””
I loved my stay at Portadelmare. Portadelmare is only a few metres from the Harbour and yet is very quiet at night. My room (the red one in the pictures) was excellent - fantastic bed, kitchen, large TV, wifi, aircon, safe, lovely bathroom,... Outside there is a stepped terrace with a view of the harbour, a jacuzzi and gym... I could not recommend this place more!!!! September , 2015

It was very nice to be greeted at the port
“It was very nice to be greeted at the port”
It was very nice to be greeted at the port, helped with our luggage, and receive lots of ideas about local spots of interest. Villa Sunset was very well equipped and comfortable, the view and pool wonderful, and the few treats left for us in the kitchen (bread, fruit, eggs, coffee, etc) welcoming and appreciated. We discovered some lovely local spots, enjoyed long walks and investigating shops and tavernas, and enjoyed the friendly and welcoming townsfolk. We enjoyed our time very much and hope to return.

Portadelmare Guest House was even better than it looks in the pictures.
“Portadelmare Guest House was even better than it looks in the pictures.”
Portadelmare Guest House was even better than it looks in the pictures. We had an amazing time. The location just a few steps from the harbour was perfect. The room, bathroom and little kitchen were beautiful and had everything we needed. The terraces and jacuzzi looking down over the port meant it we didn't fancy going out for the day we could just laze around in the sun or find a shady spot and admire the view. Thank you Petros and your wonderful staff for a fantastic holiday.

We loved our 5 day stay at Villa Sunset
“We loved our 5 day stay at Villa Sunset”
We loved our 5 day stay at Villa Sunset. We were a family of 4: two adults and two children of 12 and 15. The location is fantastic - the view over the harbour is quite amazing. You could spend hours watching the comings and goings of the different boats in the harbour. We enjoyed the villa very much - it was a special treat to have the swimming pool and the very efficient air conditioning! Petros is the perfect host - noone could have done more to make our stay a success, from organising our taxis in Athens, booking the ferries, to getting our luggage transported by donkey, to his generosity with beach towels and lots of other kind gestures. We went horse trekking one day up to one of the several monasteries on the island where we met two nuns who were very welcoming. Their Greek Orthodox chapel is absolutely beautiful and worth a visit just in itself. There are lots of little beaches around the coast accessible on foot or by frequent boats which go from the harbor. The town is delightful as well as the people we came across. It is unspoiled yet tastefully upmarket and clean. There are dozens of good value restaurants and cafes and the food is very, very good. We would recommend anyone to visit Hydra and to stay at Petros's place. August 2016
