Greek Island Dreaming

As I’m sure everyone is well aware, Greece is having a major financial crash right now. Which means property is quickly becoming more and more affordable. P & I spent a week of our honeymoon on a Greek Island cruise, hopping from island to island, each stop more breathtaking than the last. It was one of the best weeks of my life.

That said, my bestie and I are trying to decide if it would be worth the investment to buy an adorable Greek Island home. Maybe rent it out to tourists for the bulk of the time to cover the mortgage when we aren’t at the house (and then cleaning and upkeep between visitors) and then have the most picturesque vacation home when we are there. The only question is, which house do we buy?!

Found in Santorini: (House 1|House 2)

Found in Mykonos: (House 1|House 2)

Found in the lesser known Cyclades: (Naxos House|Paros House)

Doesn’t look like it would be such a bad life, and certainly not a vacation to be frowned upon. That said, we would only have to each sell off all of our investments, cash out our retirement plans and drain our savings to make it happen in the ideal house and setting if we go in on it together. Totally doable, right??

So in all seriousness though, it’s not going to happen. But hey… a gal can dream. And just looking at all of these stunners, I can’t help but reminisce about our honeymoon… I really should go through all of our pictures from the trip and categorize them and do a little recap post to share on the whole trip. I cannot wait to go back.

Most images are watermarked with original source information, and the links next to the island location will link you back to the sale listing for each place, just in case you can’t live without a Greek Island getaway in your lifetime. Send me a postcard!
