We stayed at Irene's House just One night, but it was perfect. The house was very nice and comfortable. Very recommended if you want not only to visit but also to live Olympos.
Our time with Irene was one of the highlights of our time in Greece, which is saying s lot given the high standard of Greek hospitality. The home in Olympos was beautifully restored and incredibly well stocked, it was such a relief to have a drench press and coffee, an iron and washing machine, along with everything we could need to cook. The balcony looked out over the street and the hills of Olympos, a striking view and perfect for a morning cup of tea or afternoon rest. Her neighbors were all wonderfully friendly, both when we encountered them on the street and when Irene was kind enough to bring us with her to a local saints day service and celebration at a chapel in the countryside. Irene was always accessible and super helpful in navigating the history of the city and in getting around the island. I can't recommend a stay in her lovely traditional home enough.
Everything was perfect - the house was renovated with a lot of care and is very comfortable. Irene took care of everything, even when we locked ourselves out. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, olympos was our favorite place on the island and there are a lot of amazing place to explore in the surroundings.
Irenes House is a very special spot in a very special place on earth. Super tidy and comfy, with a brand new bathroom, you will feel just like home. This also is caused by all the wonderful people around, who welcome you like you´ve not been home for a decade :)
The Appartement is equipped with everything you can think of needing. You could easily spend weeks there!
Olympos is more than worth the visit and please, stay at least a night, because its so much different without the tourists in the Evening. For us Olympos was like a secret Santorini with no Tourists at all and the freedom to take gorgeous lone pictures.
Even though Irene could not be there due to a family illness we communicated regularly by telephone, email and through the delightful Marina who runs the Olymbos Tavern across the road from the house. Between Marina and Irene, we were made to feel exceptionally welcome.
The beautiful traditional Olymbitian house was just as it was described on airbnb.
We loved staying at Irene's House in Olympos. Our stay was full of adventures as we travelled around the island and it was good to get back of an evening to her traditional house with its lovely sleeping platform and fantastic view over the village and the valley. We also enjoyed Marina's cooking and company across the street at the Olympos Taverna. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet Irene in person as she had to go to Athens for a sick relative. Maybe next time we will catch up with her. The house was clean and tidy and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other travellers.
Irini es una anfitriona amable, fiable, profesional y eficaz. Se mostró dispuesta a ayudarnos. La casa combina todo el encanto de una casa tradicional en el centro de Olympos con el equipamiento de una cocina y un baño modernos. El emplazamiento de la casa es ideal. Destacan las vistas sobre la montaña y sobre todo el dormitorio tradicional de Olympos, que es precioso y comodísimo. La casa estaba muy limpia. La ducha era muy buena y la cocina está bien equipada. Sin duda, volveríamos a la casa, especialmente recomendable para parejas.
