2 practically identical one-bedroom Ground Floor apartments in 20's stone-built renovated house. (The first floor is an apartment exclusively for the owner's family use). Huge sea-facing veranda, ideal to enjoy panoramic views of aristocratic Stenies village and the sea. Lushly green, no-through traffic village, Stenies where the famous Andros ship-owners come from, is 15min. walk from Yialia beach and 40 minutes from Hora the capital. Alternatively, driving to Hora is about 5-7 minutes.

The space

The very green and picturesque village of Stenies, perched on the hills overlooking the bay of Kato Yialia is where most of Andros’s shipping magnates come from. Stenies is only 7 minutes away by car from Hora, the capital of Andros. The beaches of Kato and Pera Yialia are within walking distance barely 15 minutes away. The stone-built house where the flats are located was constructed in the 1920’s. It underwent a 4-year extensive renovation only recently completed. The first floor flat is used by the owner as a holiday flat. The two ground floor flats on rental are about 55sq.m each.They are fully furnished of identical layout. Each consists of one bedroom with double bed, a large sitting room with a double sofa-bed, a dining room leading to an open kitchen and a shower/wc room. A very spacious, sea-facing veranda, is ideal to sit out to eat and drink and enjoy the panoramic views of the village and the sea.

Guest access

Very comfortable dwelling, beautiful views, excellent walks round the village, no cars/motorcycles, fresh air, cool climate.

Interaction with guests

I do not live in the area but I am always a phone call away. I have a very reliable caretaker called Mirella who will meet you and take you to the house, show you round and give you keys. If she cannot offer satisfactory answers to any of your inquiries, do not hesitate to call me...

Other things to note

We named the apartments KARMI Apartments because when we first saw Stenies it reminded us of the village of Karmi in Kyrenia, where my wife comes from, now sadly in occupied Cyprus...

The apartment is tastefully decorated in the center of the beautiful village of Stenies. Aris is a wonderful host who catered to all our requests and needs. He even warned us beforehand that the apartment may not be suitable for an elderly person with mobility problems because there are a number of stairs a guest must walk up in order to reach it. Stenies is an extremely quiet village built on the slopes of a hill where cars are not allowed. We rented the place anyway and we are happy with our choice.

Response from Aris:
Thank you Panagiotis for your kind words. I always warn about accessibility and mobility issues for accessing KARMI Apartments as well as always recommend having a car when visiting Stenies. My priority is always to have guests enjoying their stay, so I warn about anything that may cause an unpleasant surprise.

We had a really good semester in Karmi apartments. It was walking distance to the Centrum, we went there in 30 minutes. We also tried walking with 15kg backpacks - that took 1 hour, but went ok. The apartment was big and comfortable. We had no problems while we were there. We recommend hiring some kind of vehicle to move around the island. There are lots of lovely beaches within walking distance from the main road. Overall a lovely experience, will recommend strongly :)

L'appartement est bien situé, seul souci, l'organisation pour la remise des clés et la communication par la suite, nous n'avions pas d'eau chaude au début du séjour et l'hôte n'a jamais répondu au message envoyé. Mis a part ce petit point noir, notre séjour s'est bien passé, la terrasse est très bien, ensoleillée, et l'appartement est fonctionnel. Je recommande !

Response from Aris:
Lucile, thank you for the positive review. I have looked at all the messages between us and I do not find one from you that I have not replied let alone finding a message from you complaining about lack of hot water. That is a shame because I would have immediately replied telling you how to switch on the immersion heater. Very sorry about the inconvenience, but I never saw any message from you complaining about the water situation.
