Lemon Tree Home

The house is well hidden in a little forest 🌳 with a fresh running water spring just outside of our main door but still located at the center of a small village with all conveniences close by (ATMs, supermarket, doctors office, pharmacy, car/scouter rental, crafts & general shops, restaurants, taverns, music clubs, coffee shops, hairdresser, post office, even traditional Greek churches-you can hear the bell ringing, etc).
Although it is in the center of the village, it is very quiet and serene. Our rooftop has a spectacular view of the sea and sunset, where someone can relax and enjoy. 🌅🌇
Five marvelous beaches 🏖️🐚 are within walking distance from our house (5-25 minutes). One more beach within 55 min walk.
The Island of Andros where we are located has numerous well marked trails to follow. If you like hiking, you may join our guests or go by yourself. We will explain you in full details where to go or what to see and explore everywhere in Andros.

This is a tiny place. It is a my private small home that hosts guests in several indoor and outdoor spaces. As such I do not offer too much structure nor do I have a reception or other standarized assignments. If you want I can provide structured assignment on request... In April we prepare the house for summer guests and in October we prepare the house for winter but since I stay here year round there is always something to do...Winter or summer many of the jobs include physical effort like carry a chair or some chopped wood clear garden weed or whatever. During the summer season I can not afford staff so I do everything myself helped by would be volunteers. If it gets very busy in July and August and volunteers are up to a full day work I offer small compensation too. If we get full at that time (or anytime) we all sleep at an adjacent field outside or in tents. I will expect all that come here to post multiple times in instagram tagging the house or including me as collaborator... I will treat you as a friend guest!!!!

This was my first Worldpackers experience and I couldn't have had a better time. Miltos is very wise, kind and charismatic, he made the hostel feel like a home away from home. This was no doubt my favourite hostel experience ever! Miltos was very clear with expectations between him and the volunteers from the very start. Miltos and his partner Elena brought a warm inviting presence into the hostel and it was an honour to get to know them better. The work hours. etc were clear and very easy to follow. I will be definitely be coming back in the future! Ps: he makes the best food! efcharistó

I do not recommend this hostel or work exchange program to anyone. Miltos does not treat guests or volunteers with respect, and goes even further to be rude and inconsiderate. After 5 days, I ended my 3 month stay early because it was so rough. There was no pleasing Miltos is all of his requirements, rules, and objections. He likes to complain about past volunteers/guests and gets mad for no reason. This made my whole experience unbearable. If would like specifics, please feel to send me a message.

Hi Dustin,
Avoided to rate you with 1 star. You even complained that taxi drivers in Greece did not accept dollars. In a hole that was already dug you considered planting a tree heavy gardening job and gardening should be only flowers. When tried to talk to you regressed to profanities. Gusts and volunteers commented that you would not clean up your own things. All your tasks were completed by a 23 year old girl. I think even one star is too good for you. Good you left on your own...

My time in the lemon tree was exceptional. I was a bit apreensive with some less positive reviews but Miltos is just so nice and welcoming that all quickly vanished. The place is very social and open, great to interact with guests from all over. The location is perfect and allows for a cool vacation by the beach and in nature vibe. The work is extremely flexible and soft, basically just need to maintain the place and do some garden work. Batsi has a bus making it easy to reach and move around island. Really recommend people to go. TEXT ME if you want more information/have questions ✨️

Thank you Andreia. You were a breeze of resh air after my recent ordeal... I was questioning myself. The bottom line is that I AM ALWAYS THE SAME. WHAT CHANGES IS THE PEOPLE THAT COME HERE.
Good luck with all...

I had a wonderful time at the lemon tree house. The hours flew by, between work and relaxing on the gorgeous beaches of Batsi (just a 10-15 minute walk away). I met some great people, shared some great memories and had the time of my life. I had very few issues with Miltos, although some of the other volunteers felt differently.

Thanks for coming. You made it very clear as I am always the same. People that come here differ. All the best.

The location and the people were great, but the work was poorly organised and the host is extremely temperamental and doesn’t really respect personal space/privacy. Frankly, I don’t recommend the experience to others
