About the Owner

I am Kiki and I was born in Koroni, I spent all my childhood years in this area. As a child I used to study and look at the beautiful blue sea as a way to travel around the world. After graduating from high school I went to the USA at Temple University in Philadelphia to get an education. It was also the place where I met my husband. In the 2000 my husband and my children decided to built this log house to bond them together. A lot of personal work and care has been taken to every part of the house. From the hand made roof, floor, house walls to the hand made sofa and chairs. Almost everything is custom made and with a lot of love. We always appreciate having guests over at our home. Greek hospitality is not just a saying where I come from, its an action of heart.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear kiki,

Thank you for the wonderful vacation that we had in your house. We enjoyed living next to the sea everyday. It was an ideal vacation for us and our children

Claire U.K.

Dear Kiki,

Thank you again for making us feel so welcome at your

beautiful home!

We have now made it back safely to London (Belgrade and

Prague, respectively) after 2 days in Athens and have just been looking

through all the photos and videos we took... Wow, what a relaxing,

truly magical time we've had!

We've visited a number of locations

you've recommended in your guide and have had amazing meals in Koroni

as a result and have discovered some amazing beaches too. We celebrated

my nieces 3rd birthday and the cake we ordered from the patisserie in

Koroni was truly spectacular: both in taste and decoration.

Thank you

again and we hope you have a great rest of the summer.

Please let us

know if you will be in London in the near future as it would be lovely

to see return some of the hospitality you have so graciously lavished

on us.

I am attaching my favourite holiday photo: Dan and me are the

small figures on the beach... Taken by my brother in law from your


Kindest regards to you and Vasili.

Amazing house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10-day stay at this amazing property and I am sure we will be daydreaming about it for months... Our hosts Kiki and Vasili were most welcoming and gracious and have made sure that we are well informed about the region and all the local amenities.

It is the only house on the sandy tranquil Memi beach but there is also lots to do and see in the area, should one feel adventurous. The house itself is spacious and very modern yet maintains the traditional beach hut feel with unique furniture pieces hand made by Vasili. It truly became home away from home for us.

The town of Koroni is mere 5 minutes away by car and we had great sea food in restaurants recommended by our hosts. The local supermarket is about 4 minutes away and is good size and is open 7 days p/w.

We are truly grateful to Kiki and Vasili for their hospitality and making us feel welcome in their beautiful home.

Koroni Arts Festival

From the Owner

The land has been given from my father as my wedding gift. It used to be a land of agriculture. A place where I spent a lot of my childhood years. The sea is right next to the property. Just sitting on the balcony and watching at the sea is enough to re-energize my being.

The best beach in the area is Memi beach and the house is directly on the beach. It stretches for two fantastic km. Facing south with white sand and shallow clean water.

From the Owner

The house is surrounded by a lovely garden that is constantly been taken care by my husband. A variety of trees and plants are placed around the land. The beach is right at the end of the property. Just a few steps away and you can feel the sand between your feet. Whether its winter or summer, a walk on the beach can clean up the mind clutter and open new possibilities. The sea is amazingly clean and a swim will revitalize you.
