My only regret is not having sat down sooner to recap the experience I had in George's villa. I was first attracted to his place about 4 months before I arrived, which is when I started planning the trip. I was going to Mykonos to celebrate my 40th birthday. And since I was footing the bill for all of my friends I had to take steps to make sure the budget wasn't going to put me in an early grave.
George's place stood out from the rest because for the style of accommodation and views afforded from the residence, his villas we're priced 30 - 50% less than the competition. But this wasn't enough for me to jump on it. His villa also looked to be far from Mykonos town and I thought that would be a big issue given the scarcity of taxis in Mykonos. So I kept looking, thinking I had plenty of time. I was also looking for a 5 bedroom place, and this villa had 5 beds, but only in 4 bedrooms.
As it became clear there was nowhere that was going to afford as much house for such a low price I decided to figure out how I could deal the property's shortcomings, namely it's distance from town. This is when I learned that George employ's the concierge from the Theoxenia, a notable boutique hotel in Mykonos town, to provide person service in his luxury retreat. Victor, the concierge, became a trusted advisor in making my birthday a time I won't soon forget.
We ended up renting a passenger van, and Victor coordinated a driver who was always just a phone call away when needing to get in and out of town. He also hired a chef, Nick, who did all the shopping, and sat with me on the first day to plan out meals for the entire week. Nick even came with us out on a sunset sail to make out dinner. Which was amazing for us, but not for Nick, who learned that day that he gets sea sick. I don't think poor Nick will ever go out on a boat again.
Towards the end of my stay, George happened to be coming for a few days from Athens with a friend. He invited my entire group over for a Greek BBQ on the day of my actual birthday. He was such a great guy! We had so much fun just eating, drinking, and getting to know some like minded people. It made me feel so incredibly welcome.
If you've read some of my other reviews, you know that I don't gush about any place that I've stayed. I always try to note what was done well as well as point out a property's or hosts' shortcoming. I wan't to aid you in your decision. My stay at George's place though made me change how I think about reviews. Maybe it's just Greek hospitality, or maybe George is really crazy and has no idea how rare of a gem he has, but I hope I can afford another week in one of his villas doing everything exactly the way I spent my birthday. The place is beautiful and comfortable. And with the money you save by staying here, I'd encourage you to spend it on any of the services that Victor can arrange. The difference in price from a villa in town allowed me a chauffeur, massages, and a chef for the entire trip. And the hospitality and service provided by George, Victor, and Nick, what can I say, truly world-class.

“Best Place to Celebrate 50 or any occasion!”

We traveled to Greece to celebrate the 50th birthday of 3 of the guests and could not have had a better vacation. The Rocky retreat Villa was a 5 minute walk from the sea but we were happy to just lounge in the scenic pool. The owner George was most gracious and hospitable and had us over to his home for a cookout. He has taken great care to hire the best staff. Victor, his conierge will make sure you have all the information you need to make the most of your time in Mykanos. He will recommend the best restaurants and when you arrive to dine, they will give you excellent service because Victor sent you there. George the Grillmaster will cook you a better meal than ant restaurant and his wife Vera will leave the villa spotless for your pleasure. She is so silent and efficient, you will not even notice her working if you happen to be in the villa. I have have traveled to several countries and have stayed in highly recommended villas rented on Air B&B and this experience has been the best to date!
