General Information

35 minutes by boat from Athens harbor port Piraeus lies the island of Egina, the island of pistachios.

 

We offer you the opportunity to rent an apartment in our house located in the village of Vrohia on the southwest coast of Egina.
The house is 100 m from the sea in a slope with olive and pistachio trees with a magnificent view of the Saronic Gulf.

 

The house is a two-storey winterized stone house with blue windows and doors. The apartments are completely separate from each other and are rented separately or together for larger parties. Both apartments have air conditioning and water-borne thermostatically controlled central heating.

 

The entire roof is a sun terrace that is accessed via a spiral staircase. The terrace is available for both apartments. The entire floor of the roof terrace is tiled. There is a large table with chairs under a protective pergola as well as 4 sun loungers, outdoor shower and a charcoal grill.

 

Cleaning
Our goal is that the apartments must maintain a very high standard of equipment and cleaning.
We want the guests to meet a fresh and well-cleaned apartment with clean sheets and bathroom / kitchen towels on site upon arrival.
To ensure the cleaning, we have agreed with a local cleaner who will do the final cleaning of the apartment.
The final cleaning fee is included in the rental price.
Extra cleaning can be purchaised directly by the tentant with the cleaner Gina.

 

Electricity and water consumption
The electricity consumed during the rental period, approximately 300-500 sec per week during normal summer consumption, is an additional cost.
Consumption depends largely on the amount of air conditioning used.
The price is 5 sec per kwh (here is also included cost for water consumption).
On arrival and departure, the electricity meter is read in the floor by the tenant.
The readings are reported to Berndt (mail, text or phone) at coming home.
If reading does not show an estimated electricity cost eill be charged.

 

Oil Consumption
When renting an appartment in the winter season, wishing heating, an additional cost of 500 sec per week will be charged for oil.
The heating is ordered from Berndt in Sweden.

 

Payment of electricity / oil
Electricity costs are charged in arrears after we have received the readings after returning home.
Possible oil costs are also charged in arrears after returning home.

 

Baths, tavernas, nightlife
From the house there are 100 meters to the water with bath and a bus stop.
To a beautiful sandy beach it is 300 meters and at the same distance there is a relatively well-stocked minimarket which also has
fresh breakfast bread.
Vrohia is a quiet "non-touristy" greek city.
In 5-10 minutes walking distance there are a number of genuine Greek tavernas offering food and drink for a very cheap money.
If you want more folklore, take the bus or taxi about 4 km to Perdika, a fishing village with many taverns and a fantastic view.
If you want a bigger selection of cafes, restaurants, shopping and nightlife, take the bus or taxi 3 km elsewhere to Egina city.
For those who want to be more mobile on the island we recommend a rental car or moped.
These can be hired inside the Egina town opposite where Flying Dolphins adds.

 

The garden
At the back of the house we have a small start to a spice garden where you can pick up a pinch of rosemary, basil or oregano for dinner.
There are also lemon, mandarin and orange trees on the front which you are welcome to harvest according to your needs or for the drink.
There is also a pomegranate tree on the stairs to the roof terrace, a small peach tree and a little further behind an olive tree.

 

Awnings
Both appartments have new installed awnings and wind breakers.
 

Water treatment
Water purification is installed in both appartments.
Next to the regular faucet in the kitchen there is a smaller faucet where you can have clean purified water.
This tap provides drinking water so you don´t have to carry home water bottles from the store.
The water from the normal crane can be used for cooking, boiling potatoes, etc.
It is not polluted and dangerous to drink but does not taste as good.

 

Wi-Fi

Free Wi-Fi is included.
However the location on the island is so difficult that it is hard to get higher speed, approximatley 2 mbit per second is what is offered.
Is often enough for easier browsing or phone calls.
