About The Owner

I am a sun worshipper with 5 wonderful children! I enjoy spending my time between the Cotswolds in England, with my dogs, and my lovely holiday home by the sea in Limni on the unspoilt Greek island of Evia.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Euboea

I have been coming to Limni for the last 40 or so years since I was a child, and in 2006 purchased the house in Limni. I have made it into my family holiday home and have spent many wonderful summers there greatly enjoying all the wonderful food, weather and sea. Limni is such a special and unspoilt place that I believe anyone who is looking for an authentic Greek holiday without the crowds will greatly appreciate and want to return to.

An inappropriate guest; unconfortable bathrooms, no wi-fi, old and dirty mattress and towels.

  • 1 of 5

An inappropriate guest. Uncomfortable bathrooms, small kitchen, dirty mattress, old wi-fi connection, nor TV. Yes, an old fashion house but think about a reservation two times!

Owner's Response: I am sorry you have not enjoyed your stay in our house. We find that the bathrooms suit us very well during the months we spend in our family home in the summer even when there are 10 of us in the house. We also find the kitchen is absolutely suited to cooking for parties of 10 people so find it hard to understand how it was too small for 2 adults and a child. We always ensure that guests are supplied with clean linen so am very sorry if you received anything dirty. There is plenty of spare linen in the understairs cupboard should guests require. We do not have TVs or WiFi in the house and there is no mention of doing so in our advert. We don't spend our time watching TV while on holiday in Greece - we prefer to enjoy the wonderful scenery and culture all around, and have never felt bored enough to require a TV in our home. Indeed the same applies to WiFi - if we do need to use the Internet we use the free WiFi offered by most cafes along the seafront but prefer to escape these mod cons when holidaying. I am sorry that these are things you prioritise over the beautiful scenery surrounding Limni and wonderful artwork and books within our home. We treat our house as our home first and foremost and cherish everything in it and surrounding it so are very disappointed that you could not appreciate it. I am sorry it didn't suit you. Kind Regards, Emma

We had a wonderful stay. The house is full of art and books so we really enjoyed it. There is always a possibility for improvement. The outdoor furniture is old and ruined and plenty of various bugs. Also humidity in the downstairs bedroom.

Beautiful interiored house near the sea

  • 5 of 5

Very pretty house with stylish and light interiors. A lot of pictures, detail,

pillows, and different kinds of books!!! The location was perfect, close to the sea, and to the planty of differens tavernas and cafe. There are also two beaches with bar, 10 minutes by car.Emma gives most informations about comfortable stay in Limni. Specialty of the house is terrace on the roof, were we drink the wine in the evening, listen to the sea, looking for the stars and talking.

Highly recommended.

Thanks Emma!

Summer 2015

  • 5 of 5

After a day traveling we were so happy as the bus pulled into the beautiful harbour of Limni. The house just a stones throw from the beach did not disappoint. What a lovely family home, beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean. The beds were so comfortable and we all slept brilliantly. It felt like home from home and has everything a family could need. This house provided the perfect place to relax and unwind, added to this the view, sea and great restaurants are just minutes away making for zero stress. The guidance provided by the owner was so helpful and the local people and shop owners made us feel very welcome. We loved meeting the woman who sells eggs from her house fresh that day (they were delicious). It was wonderful talking to her in sign language and through sheer appreciation. We really did not want to leave and would highly recommend this beautiful house and region (just don't tell everybody).
