This is one of the only two houses that can be rented in Limeni directly on the sea (e.g. not Hotel or apartment). The highlight is gorgeous waters and swimming, especially for those who prefer rocky beach to sand. Deep blue clear water at the house. We were swimming from the house to the main "beach" in center of town, with three children 9,9,11 (there are buoys for resting). It also has great views and nice sunsets. This scenery justifies the price and the 5 stars.
Right next there is a taverna for fresh fish. But for really good fish or other food its best to head to other villages (Limeni is sort of a quiet elite place for Greek celebrities, and occasional mega-yachts at dinner time, but thats not where the food is best). To get to swimming area, we pass right under the taverna terrace, so there is some lack of privacy on the path, but the swimming area is far enough so privacy becomes OK once there. Certainly much much better than a busy beach. In one week, there was only once that we had to share the swimming area.
The owners are very nice, and welcomed as at the airport, gave lots of advice, and were very responsive. Unfortunately, a dispute happened after the visit due to some minor damages that we could not figure out who did, and the resulting overreaction between perhaps very protective parents and perhaps very attached homeowner. But things happen, and life goes on, and we forget that.
The main problem with the house is no air-conditioning (AC), and no ceiling fan in the master bedroom. This issue needs to be addressed with preferably an AC if we were to return back. That said, we are an American family who cannot live without AC.
A huge positive is there is good parking in the house.This is extremely important in Limeni.
We had a wonderful time, and hope to be back one day.
We are recently back home to UK after an amazing holiday experience with my wife and three young ones in Skala- Peloponnese. A traditional Greek village accommodation, in amongst beautiful gardens and endless orange groves. Our visits to Gytheion, Monemvasia, and beautiful sandy beaches is something that we will soon repeat in the near future. The Kids loved the freedom of roaming in the Orange grove. People, amazingly friendly and helpful. Fully recommended for those who look for wholesome holiday experiences.
