Our serene two bedroom waterfront apartment is located in an exclusive summer compound. It comfortably fits three - perfect for a family. Enjoy a waterfront view from the balcony, access to the beach in under a minute, and two pools!

The space

Our 55m2 waterfront bungalow is ideal for a family or a couple looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday and anyone interested in spending time at the beach, sailing, windsurfing, or doing other water sports.

The apartment is in a secure gated compound with impeccably maintained gardens. The compound has a series of two-floor ‘row houses’. Our unit is on the top floor of one of the row houses that is right on the water front.

It has a great balcony with a seafront view of the Euboean Gulf. It is ideal for families with children because you can keep an eye on your children when they are playing in the garden or on the beach from the comfort of your balcony.

The main living space is divided by a sliding door so you can use the space either as two separate bedrooms or as a bedroom and a living room. We can comfortably accommodate three: there are three single beds but we can add a cot if you are going to be four.

The apartment also has a full kitchen that is equipped with all the essentials, and a full bathroom.

Guest access

Our guests have access to the entire compound. This includes:

- A private beach (for residents of the compound). The beach is a mixture of sand and gravel (so you may need beach shoes); if you like pure sand there are sandier beaches near by! There is a diving platform in the sea (great for kids!).

- 2 shared pools (one with chlorinated water and the other with sea water)

-a shared playground for children
- water sports (managed by a neighboring hotel, they can pick you up from the beach on our compound)

-a shared outdoor shower (for a quick shower after a swim)
- extra storage space for your water sports
equipment
- 3 docking facilities for your boat
- 2 facilities for shoring boats
- free parking

Interaction with guests

I will be at the apartment when you arrive to give you the keys and tell you a few things about the place. I spend most of my summers in the same compound so I will be available if you need anything during your stay. If I am not there my family will be happy to help!

Other things to note

Please note that we are in the process of installing a washer/dryer - until it is installed you can have your laundry sent to a laundry service in town.

If you stay for over 10 days we will replace your sheets and bath-towels once a week.

We hope you will feel at home at our place we just hope that you will:

1) be respectful of our space and try to leave it in the same condition that you find it
2) be respectful of the other tenants in the compound. Please do not make excessive noise. The compound enforces quiet time between 3 and 5:30 pm.
3) be mindful of energy use
4) take the trash out every day
5) do not smoke indoors
6) do not leave dirty dishes (there is a dishwasher)
7) the pools cannot be used from 3 - 5:30 pm or late at night.
8) please do not throw toilet paper or other items in the toilet. The plumbing in Greece is sensitive. Please throw everything in the bin.
9) if you are staying long term and you are going to be bringing guests during your stay please let us know in advance. The apartment can accommodate a maximum of 4 people so please do not plan to bring more guests. Regular charges will apply. There are three single beds but we can add a cot if you are going to be four.
10) At night and when you leave the house please roll up the awnings so that they aren't damaged in the wind.
11) The compound does not allow clothes to be hung on the balcony rails. For any clothes, swimsuits, or towels you wish to dry please use the drying rack.

Before you leave:
1) roll up the awnings on the balcony
2) put the balcony chairs (and their pillows) indoors
3) close and lock all windows and shutters (including those in the kitchen and bathroom)
4) turn off the hot water boiler
5) throw out all the trash

Excellent communication with Alexandra. Warm and friendly welcome from Alexandra's mother, Marilena. We absolutely loved the apartment which suited my husband and 16 month old daughter perfectly. It was a relief to find out on arrival that Marilena had arranged extra fencing to ensure the balcony was safe for our little one. This was very thoughtful of her and we were very grateful. The apartment was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and has a fantastic view of the sea. We were really surprised at how well stocked the fridge was on arrival. Marilena had thought of every detail, so much was provided! An excellent host! Our daughter slept well in the travel cot (bedding for which was provided) and Marilena even gave her a little toy. The compound itself is very peaceful and the two swimming pools very clean and not particularly busy. Was lovely to be able to walk so quickly to beach and sea but a car is a must to be able to easily access nearby Eretria, as there are no food facilities on site. However, this keeps the compound simple, unspoilt and relatively quiet, which is the type of holiday that we enjoy. We definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return one day soon.

This was an amazing place to stay, so clean and inviting and Alexandra's mum Marilena was lovely and welcoming, and took the time to show us around and answer any questions we may have. She even stayed in touch during our stay to make sure all was ok. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to spend a week or 2.

Our stay in Alexandra's apartment was amazing! Alexandra's mother, Marilena was so welcoming, friendly and interesting to talk to. The apartment is simple and comfortable, and everything was so clean. Even the smell of the sheets and towels was welcoming. And nothing beats the beautiful views and quiet surroundings. I highly recommend staying in this apartment - it was a real treat and great value for the cost.

Das Apartment liegt in einer super gepflegten, grünen Anlage etwa drei Kilometer ausserhalb des nächsten Ortes. Weder von der Hauptstrasse noch von den nahgelegenen Hotels gab es störenden Lärm. Auch in der Anlage war es recht ruhig, die Mittagsruhe wurde strikt eingehalten, und nach dem Ende der griechischen Schulferien hatten wir die Anlage und einen Pool fast für uns alleine. Die anderen meist griechischen Gäste waren überwiegend Familien mit jüngeren Kindern und Senioren. Das Apartment selbst war die beste Wahl. Auf der ersten Etage gelegen hat es vom großen, beschattbaren Balkon aus eine phantastische Aussicht - wenige Meter Garten und dann sofort das Meer - leise Wellen, die auf den Strand spülen, schon morgens beim Aufwachen. Einfach toll! Und zur Tür heraus, eine Treppe runter und nach wenigen Schritten war man am schönen Pool. Bad und Küche sind sehr ordentlich ausgestattet. Die beiden Zimmer lassen sich per gut laufender Schiebetür komplett von einander abtrennen und haben jeweils einen separaten Zugang vom Flur und zum Balkon. Alles ist sehr sauber, gefließt und es gibt ungewöhnlich viel Ablagefläche in den Schränken. Die Betten sind keine Hängematten, eher etwas hart und bestens geeignet für Personen unter 1,80. Im Einzelzimmer gibt es eine Klimaanlage, die wir trotz 35 Grad nicht brauchten - man läßt dort einfach die Haustür oder das Fenster im Bad und die Balkontüren offen und eine leichte Brise geht angenehm durch die Räume (es standen viele Haustüre offen, offensichtlich eine sehr sichere Anlage). Der sehr schmale Strand an der Anlage ist wohl eher geeignet für jemand, der (evtl. mit Badeschuhen) ins Meer möchten als für Sonnenanbeter. Der Kontakt mit der Vermieterin war prompt und unkompliziert und ihre Mutter, Marilene, die uns willkommen geheißen hat und auch fließend Englisch spricht, hat sich unaufdringlich und sehr hilfsbereit um uns gekümmert. Wir - drei Erwachsene - haben uns dort super wohl gefühlt!!! kleine Hinweise: Es empfiehlt sich ein Auto zu haben. Der Weg zum nächsten Ort mit Einkaufsmöglichkeiten geht an der Hauptstrasse entlang und ist unbeleuchtet; am Strand lang kommt man nicht weit (oder Taxi vom Ort bis zur Anlage, hat 5,-€ gekostet). Der Pool vor der Haustür ist nicht für kleine Kinder geeignet, die nicht schwimmen können, da er von der Treppe aus direkt recht tief ist (etwa Brusthöhe) und auch schnell Tauchtiefe erreicht. Zwei Hotels weiter wird am Strand Wassersport angeboten, auch für NichtHotelgäste (als Gäste der Anlage Lilantia gibt es aber den Hauspreis). Vom Hafen des nächsten Ortes Eretria aus kann man per Fähre zum Festland rübersetzen und natürlich wieder zurück. Eine nette kleine "Kreuzfahrt". (etwa alle 30 Minuten, Tickets p.P./Strecke 2,-€ kauft man kurz vorher am Tickethäuschen am jeweiligen Ufer)
