Mykonos is one of the most famous islands in Greece and that’s pretty important considering that this country is known for having literally thousands of islands. What makes Mykonos stand out from all the other destinations Greece has to offer is the fact that unlike other islands that rely on their natural beauty and cultural interest to attract visitors, this island is all about having a good time. The reason why Mykonos is known all over the world is the fact that it’s full of swinging clubs and extravagant beach bars.
Mykonos’ nightlife might be famous all over the world, but the same doesn’t go about other aspects of the island that could interest potential visitors and tourists, aspects such as accommodation. Most people assume that they can just rent a room or book a hotel room and they are good to go. They just assume that this is all the island has to offer. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Mykonos is a one of a kind island and as such, it offers unique experiences to its visitors, which is why Mykonos villas are becoming more and more popular.
Yes, you read that right: the number of visitors to this amazing island that choose to spend their time there in a luxury villa instead of a hotel room or suite is steadily increasing. If you are thinking of spending your vacation on Mykonos and this sounds interesting, then keep on reading and we will answer all questions that you may have considering Mykonos villas.
Just where are those villas located?
They main keyword when it comes to private villas in Mykonos is privacy and this means that most of them tend to be pretty isolated and away from the “hubs” of fun and activity on the island. This might sound a bit weird – chances are that you want to visit Mykonos because you want to party and have fun – but it basically means that you will also be able to relax a bit when you will not be hitting the clubs. Also, the island is very tiny, so the concept of “isolation” is kind of relative. Simply put, nothing is further than a 10 minute car ride.
How much does it cost to rent a villa?
Since there are dozens of them on an island, providing an average estimate if the rates can be a bit difficult. It all depends on the size of the property and the amenities (more on that later). What we can be sure about though, is the fact that renting a villa definitely costs more than booking a hotel room. The good thing however is the fact that you are able to rent a villa with your friends and divide the cost equally among you.
What sort of amenities can I expect?
Most villas come complete with state of the art furnishings and high tech equipment like home theaters and big screen TVs. You can also expect a swimming pool and a well-maintained garden, complete with a barbecue grill or fire pit. Some villas even offer Jacuzzis! Furthermore, most of the times the price will also include the villa’s staff which can range from cleaning maids all the way to butler’s and professional chefs.
Can I expect anything else?
Yes, there are some other perks to renting a villa which are usually offered by the company that will actually rent you the property. They can for example arrange for VIP transportation from the port or airport to the villa and vice versa. They can also provide you with a local guide that will be on call 24/7 during your stay.
