We stayed at the red house for 2 weeks in August 2014 (8 adults and one 6-month old baby). The house is very nice, fully renovated and very well located (10 min by car from Tinos town or the sea, 45 min from anywhere on the island). The house is located in a complex with several other similar houses, but each house is quite well isolated. The view is really stunning and the private pool is very nice (daily maintenance early in the morning). The house is well equipped (fully functional kitchen), each room has its own bathroom and shower (+1 extra). There are 4 bedrooms with double beds (+1 extra bed for a small child). However, the rooms are very very small (only one of the rooms had enough space to put a baby bed). This would be the only drawback with the barbecue area (the barbecue is very nice, but the dinner table is sitting right next to it, a little too close in my opinion)
The owners live just next-doors and will try to make your stay wonderful (while at the same time respecting a lot your privacy). They brought us fresh figs multiple times. There is cleaning service twice a week.
Tinos is a beautiful island although it is not a very popular destination among tourists. We were there during the peak season but did not come across many tourists. There are many beautiful and typical villages across the island, very nice views, and beautiful beaches (both sand and pebble). The island is very dry at this period, but there was always a fresh wind which made things very nice.
I would strongly recommend this destination, especially for people who like a calm place. This is a very nice place to stay. However, I would say that in my opinion it is slightly overpriced for Greece from what I have seen on other islands given the size of the house (especially the bedrooms as I already mentioned) and the fact that Tinos is not as popular as other islands among foreign tourists (especially their pricing policy which makes it a lot more expensive for each additional adult). We were there during the peak season, but I am comparing to other places we went to at the same time of the year.
The Red House was beautiful!!Infinity pool was wonderful!!! Mrs,Christiani was absolutely wonderful , so gracious and accomadating, The meal she prepared was fantastic!!! The sunsets were terrific!!! In other words , you must go!!!!!
