Mette was great at communicating with me during our entire stay. The island had unfortunately suffered from a power cut during our time there and Mette contacted me with advice and apologies for the inconvenience (which of course could not be helped!). We had the apartment to ou…

Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short due to the location of the apartment. What was advertised as a 10 to 15 minute walk on the outskirts of Hydra town turned out to be a full on 20 minute workout straight up a mountain. It was really unmanageable for a casual holiday! We…

Response from Mette:
After only 6 hours in Hydra and in our house, Laurence decided to leave complaining about both the location of the house and the island. I was surprised that Laurence had not prepared better for this trip - i.e. learning that Hydra is a car-free island and many houses, hotels and pensions are 10-20 minutes walk from the harbour area. Laurence complained about sweating going uphill to the house - I have to say that in Greece, in August, in a carfree island - it is very difficult not to sweat ! Most of our guests appreciate the quiet location of our house - "living with the locals". I did not in any way speak in a derogative manner about being handicapped, but simply asked if Laurence was disabled in some way - that would then make sense to me why he and his friend found the walk so exhausting. We do in fact advise people with walking disabilities not to stay in our house. The AirBnb service team did not help you get a refund. They never contacted us - how could they - we did nothing wrong. We decided ourselves to credit part of your stay since we certainly do not want unhappy guests staying in our house. We try not to think of the booking which we missed out on because of Laurence and his friend. We advise people in general to read the description of the house and thus clear expectations in advance so that no ones time and money are wasted.

Mette was very helpful and friendly giving us detailed instructions to the house and checking in on us once we'd arrived. The house was cute, spacious and clean, and Hydra was beautiful. We had a wonderful time.

We had a very nice stay at Mette's house. It's nicely furnished and has everything you need even for a larger group (we were six). We didn't get to see Mette but she was really quick to answer our questions per email and of good advise! We appreciated the guide book left for us i…

Mette was a helpful, attentive host and the house was wonderful - exactly as described and well located. The house is about 10 minutes from the port and very easy to find. There's plenty of towels and bedding, a decently equipped kitchen and air con - which was a lifesaver in th…
