Traditional storied house with entresol located at the picturesque side of Kini beach, 5 meters from the sand. Includes air conditioning, a solar water heater, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom, as well as a large veranda with a direct view on the sunset. Can host up to 6 persons. Cafeterias, mini markets, restaurants and the bus stop, as well as the Aquarium, are all in close proximity. Recommended for couples, families and friend groups looking for a quality vacation at the countryside.

The space
The house is located at the northern part of Kini beach, one of the most popular beaches of Syros. It is literally 5 metres away from the sand, which gives the opportunity to go swimming whenever you need and to enjoy the sun and the sea, especially since we give access to our canoe as well. It is also near the cafeterias, mini markets, restaurants and beach bars of the village.

The house itself is storied and includes 2 bedrooms on the upper floor (one has a double bed and one has two single beds), as well as a bedroom on the entresol with 2 single beds. In the living room there are 2 large sofas which can accommodate some persons as well, meaning the house can host up to 8 persons in total. The kitchen is perfectly operative and features a sink, cooker, microwave oven and fridge, as well as cupboards with any cooking equipment you may need. There is also a veranda and a small yard, where you can sit to relax and enjoy the sunset.
In this house we have spent our first 15 summers, and it is full of beautiful and sweet memories. We hope that you will get the same friendly, calm vibe we have always gotten.

Guest access
You have complete access to the entire house, in order to feel completely at home. The only exceptions are some closets where we store some family belongings and which will be kept locked.

Guests can also have access to our canoe, free of charge.

Other things to note
Beneath the living room is a cistern, connected to a sealed indoor well.

There is air conditioning in the room with the double bed and in the living room. There are fans for the other 2 rooms.

The spiral staircase is rather steep, and thus not suitable for elderly people or pregnant women.

The entresol is not completely private, since it is separated from the staircase by a thick curtain, not a door (this is also illustrated in a picture above)

The house, like most ones in our neighbourhood, has rather thin walls, and, as a result, it is often rather noisy during the day, partly due to being so close to the beach.

Some of the closets are locked, since many family belongings are stored there.

Due to the drainage system of the village being rather old, the toilet occasionally requires additional water to flush effectively.

The Greek laws make it obligatory to provide information on our guests for the tax office, thus we require that our guests provide us with an ID or passport number.

We are two brothers, born and raised in the beautiful island of Syros. The elder brother, Takis, is an architect while the younger brother, Lefteris, is a psychologist. While we both studied in other cities, we were always excited to come back to our beloved island. Our Kini house used to be our summer resort for more than 15 years, and it is full of fond memories for us. We are glad to share it with people who will respect our house and treat it like their own home. We will always be glad to assist our guests in their effort to discover the hidden beauties of Kini, and Syros in general.
