Blue Mare Apartments

Milos is a very beautiful island to live in!

The tasks are not so many, and the volunteer will have plenty of time to visit around. Meanwhile, he will learn many things living close to the local people.

I am greek, I grew up and used to live in Athens up to 2019, when I decided to come and live in Milos. I live with Melissa, and we run a business of rental houses and rental boats. We own a company in Milos that is a parted of 3 houses near the sea, on the beach. Those houses are rented out to tourists for holidays especially during summer. We speak greek, english, spanish (and french) and we love hosting people and learning new cultures. I am also a couch surfer, I have hosted a lot of people under this platform in the past and I have been hosted also in many places of the world. Worldpackers, first of all, are friends! We organize together to do activities around (such as visits to the beach, volcano, stand up paddleboarding, playstation, water skiing, boat trips, visits to near islands etc. Worldpackers stay on a separate house and they share that house with others worldpackers. The house has fast internet, hot water, fridge and a beautiful patio outside. It is located in Adamas (port of Milos) , just 5 minutes on foot from the center. Super markets, restaurants and beaches are in a walking distance. People on the house will be from 1 up to 3.

I loved my stay at blue mare! Sleeping quarters has everything you need, just a short walk from the town centre and you have plenty of free time to explore. Vasileios was a great host. I wasn’t sure what to expect for my first Worldpackers but I had a blast.

Feel so lucky to have gotten to have this experience, It exceeded my expectations in every way. A perfect balance of peace, quiet, and privacy while also mixed with very manageable work and socializing. Would highly recommend to anyone who is self directed, willing to adapt to Greek living, and enjoys having a flexible schedule. More than anything Vasilis made this an unforgettable experience not only as an amazing host, but now as a friend for life. Thank you.

I enjoyed my time with Blue Mare apartments. My first Worldpackers experience was great thanks to Vasileios and Melissa. The work was pretty straightforward and there was plenty of free time to explore. Milos is absolutely beautiful and I would definitely recommend.

I had a very bad experience, left after 4 days because free accommodation is not enough to justify poor treatment. I would not recommend this to anyone. He spoke to me in such a rude and condescending tone. If you are alone and being treated poorly, there’s no way you will enjoy one month here. The first day I met him he went on a rant about 2 previous volunteers he kicked out, which should have told me all I needed to know. Of course when I told him I didn’t want to be there anymore, he kicked me out onto the side of the road for 6 hours until the first ferry off the island at 1:30 am.

My stay in Milos was the best experience I could ever have. Vasilis is a great host, he helped me a lot learning new things. Work was not so much and nothing so difficult. Melissa was very good with me too, we spent a lot of time together going around and visiting the best spots of Milos. The house that I stayed was clean, fresh painted having all that I needed, wifi, hot water, TV, Netflix, washing machine etc. Milos is a very beautiful island. Thanks Vasilis and Melissa for those nice days that I was a member of your team, I promise I will be back soon. I loved everything there!
