“Mykonos” brings to mind images of gorgeous landscapes and warm Greek hospitality, and you’ll certainly find both at the delightful, family-run Yakinthos Residence. Whitewashed walls, natural materials and a sprinkling of love all blend to create an utterly charming retreat. The 12 apartments and studios share an idyllic swimming pool with uninterrupted views of the deep blue waters of the bay, and surrounded by secluded hillside, you’ll have only the sounds of the odd goat or seabird to disturb the peace.
With a lovely location overlooking Panormos Bay, this hotel is conveniently situated near one of the island’s prettiest and most unspoiled beaches. Despite Mykonos’ reputation as “the island that never sleeps,” this intimate residence guarantees rest and relaxation, but that famous nightlife is within easy reach, so you can mix with the glitterati and join the party as much or as little as you wish. Your studio apartment is a welcoming haven to return to, with its quintessentially Greek white walls, simple furniture and all-important sea view.
Your simple, white studio apartment has its own individual terrace overlooking the pool and the sea beyond – a great place to escape the heat of the day. There’s a fully equipped kitchenette with a fridge, plus a spacious living area with sofa and dining table.
Amenities- Wi-Fi access- Flat-screen LED TV- Air conditioning- Hair dryer- Iron and ironing board
Breakfast is a fresh and tasty combo of Greek delicacies, served in the comfort of your room each morning, between 9 and 11am. If hunger strikes at other times of the day, the room-service menu is available until 6pm. For self-catering, there’s a well-stocked local supermarket, and your host will also give you tips on where to buy Greek goodies to take home.
Yakinthos Residence is in the northwest portion of Mykonos, overlooking stunning Panormos Bay. The unspoiled Panormos beach lies a five-minute walk down the hill and boasts a long stretch of white sand and clear blue waters. Ramp up the pace by driving 15 minutes or so to Elia and Super Paradise beaches, both great for people-watching. You can spend a peaceful evening dining under the stars at home, or take a 10-minute car or motorbike ride to Mykonos town, where the party never stops.
How to Get There
Thank you for the stay, our time in Mykonos was amazing. I am from America and forgot my wall charger convert and the host was so kind to let me use theirs for the time of our stay. We walked from the property to the beach and restaurant down below. The view and atmosphere was beyond peaceful.
A perfect peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle but still only a 15 minutes drive from town and a huge selection of amazing beaches. Christos was the perfect host who took great care of us and kept the residence in pristine condition. Breakfast was a lovely surprise and was delivered to order every day. The pool was a lovely spot to relax and soak up the views. Highly recommended
Selfishly, I don't want to tell you how amazing this place is so that it's not booked up next time I visit! 😂 In all honesty it's hard to find words for my experience staying at this beautiful place. Upon check-in I was met with warm hospitality that continued throughout my stay and never faltered. I truly felt at home and as though I was staying with friends. The pool is divine. The views are heavenly. And Christos and his family are warm, loving and the epitome of Greek hospitality. They have a slice of heaven! A Mykonos oasis. Stop reading and just get booking 😉
Back home from Mykonos for a couple of days we are still more than enthusiastic about our stay at Yakinthos Residence. From super clean and lovingly furnished rooms and pool area to sea view the moment you wake up and look out of the window to the most delicious breakfast served on your own balcony every morning Christos and his team made our holidays the most relaxing and enjoyable ones we could have had.
Thank you once again for your outstanding hospitality!

We booked this accommodation after reading Tripadvisor reports which were all very good. Christos was waiting at the airport with a very warm welcome. On arrival at the Yakinthos Residence, first impressions were the beautiful setting, the complete cleanliness and attention to detail in the beautiful room situated at the top of the property, which had the most gorgeous view across the mountains and sea. The room was well equipped with all the home from home comforts from hairdryer to small sized Bathroom accessories. With the small Kitchenette, fridge ,sink etc we had all that we needed for our stay.
Breakfast times were a choice of between 9 and 11 each day so something to suit everyone. Even a map is supplied in the room of the island for convenience. Advice is always on hand from Christos, and he was very helpful in arranging a car for us, which is something I strongly recommend to travel the island.
Agios sostis beach is very near with a beautiful sandy beach and eating place next to it.
A pool is available at Yakinthos, set in beautiful well kept gardens.
Christos returned us to the airport, we were sad to leave after seven days. We shall definitely be returning. There is so much to see and do, we chose to relax most mornings on the large balcony in the sun. It was hard to tear ourselves away to explore the rest of the island.
If you are looking from home from home, peace and quiet with beautiful surroundings with an extremely friendly welcoming host then Yakinthos is the place for you.
Note: please feel free to contact Christos direct with questions or queries, we did and he responded immediately.
