About Melinda Mcrostie
I am Australian even though i feel Greek because I have been here most of my life.
My mother visited Molyvos and met a Greek fisherman and married him. What was so amazing all those years ago what that Giogios (my step father) married a divorced women who had children. Ever seen the Shirley Valentine movie well that was my mother before the movie was even made.
My mother Jenifer married Giogios the Greek fisherman (which he was, just retired) and we moved to Greece in1972 .We have been visiting since 1968.. (Maybe i shouldn’t write dates as this shows my age)
I was brought up in Athens and Molyvos. Molyvos because it was my step fathers village which we all love and spent every holiday here.
I have worked with tourism all my life and feel that what is missing is quality accommodation for people who love Greece and want to experience the real Greek life and stay in self catering houses that are comfortable and affordable.
I am happily married with 3 children, there is much more to the story but if you want more details you will just have to come and visit us.
I feel unique as i know of many Greeks that have gone to Australia and other countries but i don’t know of any Australians that have been brought up in Greece.
Melinda Mcrostie purchased this house in 2002
Why Melinda Mcrostie chose Lesbos
After living for many years in the village of Molyvos we thought that Captains View would be a great place for people to come and stay as it has a fantastic view of the whole bay and in a very central position. We bought it, did it up and i wish it was us staying there.
Great for families or friends. Perfect for people wanting a bit more privacy than staying in a hotel. A home away from home.
What makes this house unique
Situated in the centre of the village. all amenities only a few minutes walk away, tucked away in a quiet corner. The beach just down the hill. Stone walls give this house a typical Greek feel with the many other touching points that compliment the ambience.
Car parking 5 minutes walk. Really impressive view from the balcony
