Description

Permit Number: MHTE1170K91000951801

It might seem a tad strange to the reader but I hardly ever listen to music when I visit the Pool House. The stillness and smells of the soil make all man-made devices and sounds seem out of place; alien incursions unsettling my natural habitat. Before your eyes and at the edge of the pool unfolds a limitless horizon of barren Cycladic land, seawater, and bluish sky. All right, maybe I have a thing for the hyperbole, and I do play around with my smart phone while resting on the chaise longue just before dinner is served under the reed straw pergola.

The pictures describe the house much better than a three hundred words summary – especially if written by a non-native English speaker and a father of two – I guess, what I am trying to convey to the reader and potential guest is the ambiance, the feeling, the soothing energy which the house and its surroundings imbues to your body rhythm. If on a day we decide not to go to the nearby beach – a mere fifteen minutes hassle free drive – the kids will dive their hearts out in the pool while I, and my wife will catch up in our reading, work on our Med cooking, or simply vegetate in a linen hammock.

Two bedrooms, an attic with a double bed, and two separate bathrooms can accommodate up to seven guests. A fully equipped kitchen and the adjacent living area with its fireplace, make the unit suitable for an early Spring, or late Fall getaway. The two bedrooms open up to a stone tiled porch and a lush lower garden ideal for kids to roam around or for a parent to get some much needed sun.

I and my family, will be more than eager to host you at the Pool House and give you tips and recommendations on how to have a time full of joy and laughter on my ancestral land.

La maison est très agréable

La maison est très agréable dans une partie de l'île très calme. La vue et les couchers de soleil sont tout simplement fascinants. Merci à Alfredos pour son accueil et ses conseils.

Super

Villa was excellent everything that we needed for a perfect break. Property is well designed and very clean. The view from the terrace is also exceptional. It was such a pleasure to watch the sunset every evening over the sea. Alfredos who looks after the property is great and very helpful. Highly recommend the villa and the island, perfect getaway to relax.

2 relaxing week on Kea

The holiday starts when boarding the ferry at Lavrio and after just 1 hour you enter Kea at the small port of Korissia. After driving off the ferry it is about a 20 min car trip (don´t take the steep road up to Xyla...) to the Pool House. The view form the terrace is really as amazing and breathtaking as written in the other reviews. You cannot get enough of it. The pool is big enough to do some swimming and ideal for kids. The rooms are nice and well equipped. By car you go to a different beach every day if you want to - none of them are crowded, except on weekends. Eating out is great too and very affordable. What I recommend too is to hike down to the oldest remaining Temple of Athena at Kartheia (from 600 BC). Just great. Thank you Alfredos for hosting us.

Idyllic hillside retreat

The Pool House was a perfect choice for our annual Greek island retreat. The house is light and beautifully designed to take advantage of the fabulous views. The kitchen has all you need for self-catering. Alfredos was very attentive and helpful throughout and the pool is very well maintained. The peace and quiet of the hillside meant that we spent many days by the pool and in the hammock. Why would you want to go anywhere else (did I mention the heavenly views?). It's so tranquil; often the only the movement was the birds of prey silently circling the hillside. The island is absolutely charming and unspoilt (almost untouched by tourism compared to other Greek islands), quite barren in places, but with many wild herbs and flowers growing in profusion. Locals were very welcoming, and we enjoyed great meals in local restaurants. The surrounding houses alongside the Pool House are quite close together, but we were fortunate not to have any problematic noise disturbance from neighbouring properties. We managed to navigate the local country lanes (with quite typical Greek island road surfaces) on a 125cc motorbike but some beaches are easier accessed in a four wheel drive. We loved Kea, an exceptionally beautiful island, and The Pool House was for us (a middle aged couple who know what we want from a Greek island holiday) a totally idyllic retreat.

Amazing jouse with breathtaking view!

We spent two wonderful weeks last July in Kea. We enjoyed the sun, food and amazing beaches, yet most of them we enjoyed the place where we stayed. Alfredo’s villas are located at Nichi/Agios Nicolas, not far from the port and 15 minutes by car from Ioulida. The house was very very pretty, fully equipped and clean. We had our private swimming pool (cleaned every second day) and the view was really breathtaking!!!!! During our staying Alfredos was always available for us, very polite and highly professional. The price is very reasonable for the services and the view you get! We sincerely recommend you the island and Alfredos villas.

Hallo Alfredos, We had a wonderful time in your house in Kea. Everything was as it is presented on your website, somethings are even greater: the vieuw is more fantastic than on the pictures and the sunset is the most beautiful we have ever seen. We were also very pleased with the extra sunbets your father bought for us, it was 'quickservice' Kea is a nice island, we reached the port of Lavrios without stress and the trip with the boat was very pleasant and took not too long. For people who arrive late in the evening, just as we did, it should help when someone is there in the port to guide them to the house, because the first time you have to take the 'dirt roads' they are really 'dirt'. Once we knew them it was no more a problem. Alfredo and Simeon, thank you for everything! perhaps,in a few years, we meet again. Flup, Karla, Wif and Krista

Peaceful & calm with a beautiful view

o many positives about this place, but first among them is the positioning, with spectacular views out to the west (fabulous sunsets and a glimpse of the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio). So peaceful and secluded set among a few other properties but with none overlooking. The internal space of the house is well designed and comfortable, although I could imagine it would feel a little crowded if all six beds were occupied by adults. Outside, the terrace is large with ample shade (and did I mention the view?) and a large dining table for leisurely lunches and starlit dinners. The pool is of a really good size and depth, and again has that view. The only real negative was in fact due to that pool. The house is set in the countryside and, since there is no natural surface water on the island during the summer, the pool is an oasis for local wildlife, and when we were there, that mainly meant wasps (the non-aggressive European Paper Wasp, but in the numbers we had – particularly on the hottest days – their thirst and curiosity meant they were a real nuisance.) The owner was really very helpful in helping us try to combat them, but quite simply, nothing was going to stop them getting to that water. Apparently we had hit peak wasp season (late June) so, if you’re scared of wasps, it’s worth asking the owner before you book about how active the little beasties are likely to be at the time you’re planning your trip. Other than that, we can’t fault the place and had a fabulous fortnight of peace and relaxation. If you want to get out and see more of beautiful Kea, the house is in a good location for exploring the island, and while you’ll need to drive over dirt tracks whichever way you reach it, we managed without incident in an Astra. Some of the roads on Kea would be more comfortable in a 4x4, but most are fine in a standard saloon.
