Emma Torrance arrived 09/09/2016
We're safely back in the UK. Sorry we missed you yesterday and sorry for leaving food in the fridge, Petros took us a little by surprise, turning up earlier than expected. Thanks again for a lovely, relaxing week. Aloe Vera is truly special!
Emma Russell arrived 21/09/2015
What can I say... we had a fabulous time.
We have travelled to several of the Greek Islands but it was a first for Hydra and fell in love with it, we did a lot of walking and found the countryside beautiful and the total lack of vehicles an absolute delight. Hydra town was good fun, with a mix of traditional Greek tavernas and some really very sophisticated restaurants. We stayed in Kamini which was lovely, we're missing being woken by the clip-clop of donkeys ....
Aloe Vera villa was a home rather than a holiday villa with every possible item you could imagine. Iris was fantastic, even cooked us a meal the evening we arrived and was the font of all knowledge regarding the island.
Big thank you to you and your team too, booking was so easy, we only met Tracey once, the night we arrived, please convey our thanks to her, due to adverse weather conditions we missed the sea taxis and donkeys... Tracey helped us carry our luggage through Hydra to Kamini, far and above the call of duty!
Overall you have two very happy customers...
Many thanks Emma

It was a perfect and enjoyable stay.
Alastair Macorkindale arrived 28/06/2014
We had a marvellous time, thank you. And we will certainly be returning to Hydra. The house was perfect for us, and we will make another booking with you at some point in the near future.
Barbara Elson arrived 11/06/2014
We found Aloe Vera a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay, more like a home than a holiday rental.
Iris was very welcoming and helpful and we would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others.
We were also impressed by your company and would look to rent other properties in other locations in the future.
Mrs Barbara Elson.

Very much thanks! The villa was great!
Adam Beaumont arrived 01/09/2012
We had a really fantastic time at Villa Aloe Vera - and Iris was a wonderful host.
It's funny because when we were booking our holiday it came down to a toss-up between the villa on Hydra and a hotel on Siros.
They were the same price. Looking back now, I can't believe we were even considering the hotel over the villa.
In Kamini, we had tons of space for the two of us. The house was simple but perfect. The lovely courtyard really makes the place.
Everything went smoothly, from being met off the boat to having the mule train waiting to pick up our bags when we left. Kamini was wonderful. I think we both preferred being out of Hydra town itself. We're pretty mobile, so it really didn't make much difference, and the walk round the coast is really special. Also in Kamini, you're closer to a lot of excellent swimming spots.
We definitely want to return to Hydra. It really suited us.
It was a great holiday, so many thanks.
Davide Pino arrived 31/07/2012
Sorry for my late reply.
Our stay and holiday at Aloe Vera was wonderful, under many aspects. We liked the fact the the villa is in a quiet spot of Hydra, but still close to main town, shops and restaurants.
Iris, the owner, has been very kind and helpful throughout the whole period; we were welcomed perfectly, helped when we needed info and tips.
The villa is really beautiful, simple but very carefully designed and decorated. The bedroom is really quiet and we slept extremely well.
I will certainly recommend it to anybody who wants to stay in Hydra.
Peter Boult arrived 14/07/2012
We had a fabulous time at Aloe Vera, Hydra. We arrived in a heatwave for the island and the air conditioning was crucial! We were well looked after and knew that we could ask for advice at any time.
The villa is extremely well maintained and carefully equipped, down to a torch for evening walking out. It is also very charming.
We wanted for nothing. When we arrived there was plenty of water, coffee etc. and a great description of tavernas we could go to.
The villa was regularly cleaned. We would highly recommend it and hope to return one day.

Gabrielle Hunting arrived 04/09/2011
What a fantastic place Hydra is, we had a fab holiday thank you. Our transfers were extremly efficient, Vassilis was charming & very interesting, giving us an insite into the events occurring in Greece today,along with the history etc. And the taxi ride was beautiful & v. civilised. To be met by the same driver on our return was lovely, we continued where we left off !. Great idea to spend excess time in Plaka, fascinating place & so calm . Would def think about a w/e in Plaka, had'nt realised you can be somewhere so central.
Aloe Vera was truly perfect. Iris certainly has an artistic eye, her attention to detail showed everywhere. The cottage is beautiful & the courtyard sublime. To have so much space/privacy/peace , it was better than we could have hoped. Iris herself was so keen to make our holiday perfect. Perhaps she worries a bit too much on that score !, but is v well intentioned. Having a wonderful holiday on a fabulous island. We are v impressed by Pretty Greek Villas, you certainly go the extra mile, are v efficient, have a winning formula.
Thank-you so much, we certainly hope to use you again & have recomended you to our friends.
Wendy Carter arrived 30/05/2011
Paul and I had an absolutely fantastic stay at Aloe Vera in Hydra. The cottage was simply beautiful - tastefully decoated and personalised with the owners belongings and own artwork. The attention to detail was superb and made us feel very welcome, as if we were staying in a home rather than simply a house.
Tracey met us on arrival and we bumped into her many times during our stay. She is warm and welcoming, very friendly and relaxed. When we got to our cottage we met the owner - Iris, well what can we say - she was just so, so lovely!
Iris had put special little touches in the cottage to welcome us, including flowers, champagne and flowers (as we were newly weds) fresh lemons, home-made jams and other goodeis in the fridge, lavender on the towels. It felt so special, absolutely lovely.
Iris was so friendly and helpful - within a day we felt as if we had known her all our lives and we were on holiday visiting a close friend. She helped us with many aspects of our holiday including recommending restaurants, beaches and booking things for us i.e. flying dolphine and a private taxi to get us back to the airport! She is wonderful!
The island was lovely - just what we wanted for our honeymoon - no cars (wow, what a difference that makes!) very, very pretty. We loved the cobbled streets, cafes,fishing boats, donkeys, flowers, cats! - in fact, everything.
The beaches were great - very quiet (at the right time of the day) all with cafes nearby (very Shirly Valentine!) We found some super places to eat. The castello restaurant at Kimini beach, Theo's in Kamini (can't remember it's real name - Theo is the owner, Lulu's and Ostria in Hydra.
Your company were very helpful in the booking process and gave us excellent information to start us on our way. We would definately use your company again and will recommend you to others.
Thank you for a holiday to remember.
Very best wishes
Paul and Wendy Holmes
