The Company

Sea Kayak Milos and Petrinela's Guesthouse and Kafeneio Perros are owned and operated by Rod Feldtmann and Petrinela Vikeli.  They  have three children, Anna and Alexia and Perros and live on Milos, year round.


Petrinela Vikeli (CEO)

Petrinela comes from a local family and was born and raised on Milos.  After school she moved to Athens and obtained a degree in Tourism Administration.  She worked for a while in the hotel industry in Athens, before retreating to the quiet life of the islands.

Petrinela manages the family operated Kafeneio (Coffee-Ouzo bar) and the Guesthouse business, in-between her motherly tasks.  She enjoys spending time with her family, quiet nights at home, sundays at the beach and the occasional moonlight swim. After working hard all summer, she looks forward to a winter break, either skiing in the alps, or to Australia for an endless summer.


The Guides

Rod grew up on a farm in Victoria, Australia.  After graduating with a degree in Geology from the University of Wollongong, he worked for 10 years as an Exploration Geologist in Australia, South America and finally in Milos.  In year 2001, when his contract as a Geologist came to an end, Rod established Sea Kayak Milos as a means to remain on Milos, sustain his family and to enjoy the great outdoors.  The aim of the business was, and still is, to provide affordable sea-kayaking holidays, in a fantastic location, to people of all abilities.
