About this listing
The Beach House is ideally located between Meloi Beach (35m) and Aspri Beach (150m). It is 1.5km to the port/town Skala. Boasts views of both beaches & the Monastery. Duplexed on a lane, The 1 bedroom house with separate kitchen is fully self contained, Spacious, Comfortable, Airy and Private. The Bathroom is Basic with shower, toilet & vanity. A great place to swim, relax, explore, stroll to town, or watch ships come in under stars. Mostly, Forever Fotini Beach House has a great energy & soul.
Forever Fotini Beach House is unique because it gives the traveler the opportunity to rent an entire house, more often than not, on the Greek islands, a room is what's offered. Apart from that, a Hotel or Large costly houses are often the norm.
Forever Fotini is small house (1 bedroom, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom) and is very reminiscent of a traditional Greek Island home although it was built in the 70s. It reflects how islanders lived a simple life in years past.
Perplexed on how to categorize the house, is it a Greek studio? (often called that), is it a duplex? (because a wall area is shared with a neighboring property, on the entry lane way?) a small villa?, in the end I decided it's a house with Meloi beach right in front of it, about 35m to the water, about 60m to the sand and shady trees. With Aspri Beach about 100 m away, and ships outside the kitchen doors awaiting entry to the port, BEACH HOUSE is what seemed logical.
FOTINI (my mum), upon seeing my absolute awe for its beautiful views (and my asking), gave it to me. I told her I would hold on to it for as long as I can, maybe FOREVER. Over the years I have endeavored to make the house as self contained and comfortable.
I know people love the energy and location of the house when they stay and I believe that the spirit and soul of mum is there to welcome guests with a Greek coffee when they arrive and that she would be overjoyed to know guests were enjoying their stay in her space.
This is how FOREVER FOTINI BEACH HOUSE was born.
The entire house will be at your private disposal, this includes the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. You also have the entry area 'Avli' to use for outdoor dining and sitting. There is a terraced area near the kitchen which is an excellent spot for outdoor sitting and dining. The entire yard (easily defined) is also at your disposal. The yard is unlandscaped and guests should take care when walking around the yard, taking a shortcut to the beach, and especially walking on the rocky areas.
The lane way to the house services 3 other houses apart from my place. As you walk along the lane (20m) to the end, you will pass under a stone gateway, from this gateway Forever Fotini Beach House Starts. Please, At all times be considerate that the lane is communal, especially with parking, or coming home very late at night. I suggest leaving the outer lights on when you go out of an evening to make coming home easier. (Especially after a few ouzos)
The bins are on the street at the entry to the lane.
