A third apartment on the first floor is used exclusively by my family and is not for rent.

The ground floor apartments share a huge sea-facing veranda, ideal to sit out, eat and drink and enjoy panoramic views of village and sea. We chose the name KARMI Apartments because when we first visited Stenies it reminded us very much of the village of Karmi in Kyrenia Cyprus. My wife Lena comes from Kyrenia and we both have fond memories of the area from before the 1974 Turkish invasion. IMPORTANT Stenies is on a hill and there are no vehicles in the village. There are 300m to walk and then 50 steps up to get to the apartments. If anyone in your group has mobility problems or serious health issues check with me first before finalising your booking.More

Interaction with guests
When I am not present at Stenies to personally welcome you, my housekeeper will meet you at the village square, escort you to KARMI Apartments, show you round the apartment and give you your key. As I rent other properties elsewhere in Greece I cannot be everywhere at the same time. However, I am always just one phone call away at anytime. I am more than willing to over tips and advise and sort out any problems you may have to help make your stay at KARMI and your holidays in general more enjoyable.

Thank you for your review. I find it difficult to describe Karmi Apartments and Stenies in generally in a n objective way, so when someone like you writes a review the way you have, it simply makes life easier... Thanks again

About the neighborhood
Lena and I are both from Cyprus. We came to Andros one weekend in June 2001 and drove around the island. At the beach of Kato Yialia we had a wonderful swim and lunch at the excellent local taverna which to date is still as popular as ever. Something mystical propelled us to carry on up the road to the village of Stenies that we could see perched above us. We were not disappointed. I remarked that I felt like I was in the South of France or in the Italian Riviera. Lena instead, said it reminded her of the village of Karmi in the Kyrenia region of Cyprus where she comes from (presently still under Turkish occupation). We walked round Stenies for a bit and immediately fell in love with it. We asked a local if he knew of any houses for sale in
Getting around
There are presently no supermarkets or grocery stores at Stenies You need to get your provisions in nearby Nimborio or at Hora. The nearest restaurants are about 20 minutes walk from Karmi. I strongly recommend having your own transport. If you want to do justice to visiting Andros you need to wander around and discover places. Many visitors prefer to hire mopeds. Either way, make sure you book your transport early as most rental places run out particularly in peak season. I can recommend car-hire locals as well as taxis which are numerous and relatively inexpensive.
