The Sea House is located right by the seaside and boasts astounding sea views and direct access to a beach in front of the house. It is decorated by fusing a modern, minimal and a contemporary Aegean island style offering a unique holiday experience. The way the house is designed and positioned allows guests to enjoy a luxurious vacation with all modern amenities, while also feeling immersed in the surrounding landscape, local nature and the breath-taking images it offers.
The house sits on 5.500sqm of land, and is surrounded by sea, olive trees and green. The garden fuses with the seaside, and it offers the opportunity to enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner outdoors while enjoying the astounding views across the cobalt blue sea and the mountains of the Attica region across it.
The house boasts four bedrooms ,three with double beds and one with double sofa-bed, two bathrooms, a kitchen fully equipped with all modern amenities and a living room with the same magnificent views described above. It has been interior-designed, furnished and decorated with love and personal attention to a high standard, with the aim of creating a milieu that is harmonious with the surrounding environment and culture and provides a very comfortable, soothing and relaxing atmosphere for guests to enjoy.
A master bedroom with A/C on the 1st floor of the house enjoys unique and uninterrupted views across the sea and blue horizon. It allows guests to wake up with a breath-taking view that will surely remain unforgettable. The second master bedroom on the 1st floor offers remarkable views across the countryside and the mountains at the other end of the horizon.
The two bedrooms on the lower ground floor are built in the traditional way so that they offer a maximum cooling temperature throughout the hot summer months. Though they don’t offer a view, the experience of sleeping in the all-white minimal yet traditional Aegean Sea / Cycladic environment and cool temperatures they offer, especially in the hot summer months, I find is an experience unique in its own way.
The floors are wooden in the living room and in the two master bedrooms and tiled in the other two bedrooms to ensure the most efficient temperature levels in the summertime. Also there are remote-controlled ceiling fans installed in all bedrooms offering cool temperatures and a smooth sleeping experience.Two of the bedrooms have flat-screen TV’s installed.
The living room has also A/C and is designed to allow guests to enjoy time in, while also still in full view of the sea and horizon. The lighting is installed in a way that can accommodate any need at any time of the day, while also contributing actively in the creation of the soothing atmosphere of the interior and exterior landscapes.
There is one large LED 43" TV in the living room with access to a lot of free-view digital channels. I have also included some books with remarkable photography captured across the Hellenic terrain and the truly exceptional landscapes it includes. Please take great care when reading them, they are a precious treasure .
The house boasts a strong Wi-Fi Internet connection which will adequately cover all your online needs.
Interaction with guests
I really enjoy welcoming my guests personally to show them around the Sea House. At check-in, I will provide all the information required to make your stay smooth and unforgettable. I would also be very happy to offer recommendations, and tips on Evia island and the many sites, monuments, museums, archaeological sites and beaches worth visiting.
Perhaps you prefer staying away from the usual places tourists are encouraged to visit and would like to explore less well-known beaches and sites, mostly preferred by locals? Just let me know and I will suggest specific locations.
During the stay, I am available if needed. I like to respect discretion as it is often a well-sought ingredient for a relaxing and memorable holiday
