The highlight of this trip was our accommodations at Villa Hurmuses, in one word
AMAZING! The service from the staff on property wonderful, we could not stop talking about the wonderful breakfast every morning, my cappuccino so yummy.
The island of Mykonos has not seen the last of my family. Thank you for such wonderful memories with my family and close friends.
If you have never been to the Greek Islands, then Mykonos should be at the top of your bucket list. And in order to ensure the most outstanding experience, staying at Villa Hurmuses should be your number one priority. The highlight of the Villa was most definitely breakfast on the balcony and the sunset view with a glass of wine. With Mykonos' exquisite beaches, and quality shopping, it does not lack in beauty nor excitement (try Jackie O's). The service and courtesy that Villa Hurmuses provides is unparalleled and exceeded our expectations. The location is optimal with the chora nearby (10 - 15 minute walk) and the staff anticipated & addressed our every need.
There really are no words to describe Villa Hurmuses. The whole experience was idyllic and surreal. I was there with a group of 9 celebrating a 50th birthday and Villa Hurmuses was the perfect place to do it. None of the pictures do this place justice…you just have to see it for yourself.
Ernesto picked us up from the airport and we were greeted with friendly and welcoming smile. Upon entering the property and seeing the gates open up our eyes immediately were drawn to the magnificent view of the pool, the sea and Mykonos town with beautiful bougainvillea in the foreground.
Anna Marie was waiting with her warm smile and warm towels. The villa is designed to appreciate the view with large windows drawing in the beautiful vista. The upstairs room which is the master suite comes with a private terrace overlooking the backyard and a wonderful view of the island.
Ernesto and Anna Marie are the best hosts. They will work with you to make sure that your stay is comfortable and worry-free. More than once they told us to not waste our money on the restaurants in town and let them cook for us. How cool is that?? (One night we should have definitely listened to them after going to a terrible restaurant). Just tell them what you want and they will go shopping for it and prepare it for you. A few guests took a trip with Ernesto to the butcher and fish shop to pick out specific cuts of meat for them to prepare to our liking. Their food alone is 5 stars. Anna Marie prepares breakfast daily and Ernesto serves. I am now hooked on Greek yogurt with honey! You can dine in the villa or outside on the beautiful back terrace.
If you tell them what you want before arriving you will find it waiting for you such as liquor, wine, specific foods (if available)…etc. You won’t want for a thing except more time to spend there.
The place is beautiful, private, spacious and well appointed. Anna Marie will clean your room daily or upon request. All of the bedrooms are spaced far apart from each other. The pool is inviting and quite refreshing. Mykonos town is just a 10-15 minute walk but I personally recommend that you rent a moped or an ATV to make life a little easier. The road to town has little to no walking room on the side.
Book it! You won’t regret it. Sharona Hurmuses (the owner) is top notch and she will anticipate your every need making whatever occasion that you may be celebrating on Mykonos the best ever!
This place has location being just above Mykonos Town, views of the town and sea, a true luxury villa with lots of room, comfort and charm, but best of all our hosts Ernesto and Anna Marie. We are a group of ten men who have previously stayed at villas around the world. We know luxury, service and fine dining. We had it all here. Anna Marie's dinners cannot be topped at any restaurant on the island. The multiple courses, the flavors, the presentation and the candle lit settings (three different table locations) made each dinner a memorable event.
The pool, and areas around the pool, were full of fun surprises: an old well, an olive tree from which Anna Marie picked, prepared and served us olives, views not to be topped plus Myko our blow-up floating flamingo pool toy.
For the discerning traveler looking for a Mykonos pool holiday coupled with comfort , service, fabulous meals and the best of Mykonos we all highly recommend our stay at Villa Hurmuses. We will be back.
To say that our stay here was perfect would be an understatement. The house is stunning, with views that look out over the sea. You can see the iconic Mykonos Windmills and Old Town just from standing in the back of the house. We enjoyed watching the cruise ships come in each morning to dock, and especially enjoyed the fact that unlike them, we were staying in Mykonos for a week!
Ernesto and Anna Marie were wonderful. They went out of their way to make us comfortable, and were always making sure that we were well-fed and informed. They gave great suggestions for beaches and restaurants! And the breakfast was delicious! I certainly felt spoiled by their kind service.
The grounds of the house were impeccably kept, and the pool is gorgeous! We had a wonderful stay here, and I would absolutely return.

We had a wonderful 5 days here for a family birthday. The setting was amazing with the vast views out to sea and then the lovely big pool and the superb barbecue area with the Bougainville in full bloom,picture perfect. We were very spoilt by Anna Marie and Ernesto,they looked after us very well.
Now we are back on the other side of the world in the snow, we can only reminisce about this wonderful warm holiday at this picturesque villa in Mykonos.
