Renting a Mykonos Villa is the best way to ensure a dreamy, luxurious accommodation for your vacations. Villas are the top choice for celebrities and VIPs when they visit the island. If you want to spend a few days living like a celebrity, it will be easy to do so in Mykonos as there are so many villas available for rent.
In order not to waste your money and get disappointed, you should start searching for your villa early. The best deals are made well in advance. Here are some tips on how you can choose the ideal villa for you.
Consider what your needs are and choose the perfect location (close to town/remote/on the beach)
Each one of us has different needs and priorities. Think about your needs – and the persons’ you are traveling with needs. If, for example, you are the type who wants to spend a lot of time on the beach or if you like swimming a lot, you should consider a Mykonos Villa near a sandy beach.
There are basically 3 types of Mykonos Luxury Villas but you can also find a combination of these types:
Villas close to Mykonos Town: They are perfect for people who like to have everything near them or people who want to experience the vibrant nightlife of Mykonos Town to the fullest. It would be helpful to have your own vehicle or to rent one but even if you don’t, you can use public buses or taxis.
Remote Villas: Mykonos Villas in secluded locations offer a high level of privacy and relaxation. If you choose this type of villas you should definitely make arrangements for your transportations.
Villas on the beach: Probably the most popular of all types, as you will have easy and fast access to the beach. Be careful with which beach you choose your villa to be at. If the beach you choose is organized, you will also have easy access to useful facilities – like restaurants, bars, and shops.
Select the villa by having a view (sunset/panoramic/sea view)
For romantic souls or for couples, this may be an important precondition. You will find many Mykonos Luxury Villas with wonderful views to the Ocean, to the sunset or panoramic. Consider the fact that a great view always makes us happy and relaxed so maybe it would be good for your vacations to invest a little in your villa’s view and location.
A nice but a little rare combination is a villa with a view to the Ocean and the sunset. If you can find it, you will be able to wake up watching the sea and to have a relaxing cocktail on your own balcony or garden under the amazing colors of the sunset. To find a sunset view villa, ask about its orientation – it has to be facing to the West.
Even villas that are secluded and located on hills can have wonderful views. In some cases, villas are built on the top of a hill offering great panoramic views to their guests.
Amenities and services provided
Make a list of what amenities and services are necessary for you and your travel partners and a second list with what you would like to have but you could live without. Most villas offer a big range of amenities and cooperate with concierge agencies so they can cover anything you may need.
More amenities and services would mean a higher price, so it is better to skip the ones that you don’t need. For example, if you are going to eat out every day, a garden BBQ will not be a necessity for you.
Most villas offer big indoor and outdoor spaces, big bedrooms, a fully operational kitchen, nice small or bigger gardens, swimming pools, and Jacuzzis. Usually, each bedroom has its own private bathroom and private balconies.
Ask your host to give you the contact details of a good concierge service and check what they offer. If you are planning to throw a party, for example, you will find out their help will be very efficient and will ensure your guests will have an unforgettable time! You can hire private chefs, drivers, battlers, therapists or even bodyguards.
