The property is built on the tip of a peninsula superimposing between two beaches, with an outdoor area offering unique panoramic sea views and breathtaking sunsets over the island of Spetses and the Peloponnese.

It is at the very front of a discreet vacation house complex, totally independent, with its own private garden which includes a variety of local trees and flowers only meters away from the waterfront.

There is a choice of swimming locations, either a sandy beach to the left of the peninsula, a few meters away or a rocky platform on the right side of the peninsula, exclusively reserved to the owners and their guests.

It is located east of the town of Porto Heli, about 7 km away and is at walking distance from the cape of Agios Emilianos.

An elegant vacation setting surrounded by the crystal blue waters of the Argolic-Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea, this stunning location allows you to experience and enjoy the magic of the Greek Mediterranean summer leisurely.

Seagull's Nest House

This is a beautiful little house with an independent guest house offering a simple yet stylish surrounding in total harmony with the landscape and seaside.

The owner has applied her personal taste in creating a pleasant and cosy environment in a relaxed yet modern kind of way.

With its boat style pillows, an outdoors dining table made of old wooden, cargo-boat hatches and a one slate table by the sunsetting view, this house generously offers the Mediterranean experience.

If waking up to the singing of birds and taking a swim before breakfast, or enjoying a nap to the sound of gentle waves and the mesmerizing sound of cicadas, is your dream vacation, then this house is ideal for you, whether you are with your family or a group of friends.

Town of Porto Heli

The town of Porto Heli hosts a truly integrated community in an exclusive enclave on the shores of the Peloponnese and is built to the west of a large gulf, forming a natural port which has been in use since ancient times. The town has a wonderful assortment of local seaside taverns and restaurants and a choice of daily activities with day cruises, water sports and a sailing school.

At night the visitor will find a lively scene with several bars, luxurious hotel lounges and even an open air movie theater.

Nearby Destinations and Unesco World Heritage List

Seagullsnest at Agios Aimilianos area, 7 km from Porto Heli port is an ideal place to spend your vacation, its location geographically offers a wide variety of possibilities,

you can choose to get away from it all and become one with the elements of nature and the sea or you can use it as a home base to explore nearby destinations or a combination of the two.

Seaside ports, several islands and places of historical and cultural importance on the Peloponnese, many of which are included in the Unesco World Heritage List, offer a choice of daily excursions varying from a few hours to a full day.

Costa beach at 2 km away offers a water taxi connection to Spetses Island.

Porto Heli port town is only 7 km away,

Koilada port town is at 14 km away, about 20 minutes drive. It is a beautiful small fishing village with small restaurants, a fishing fleet and a famous shipyard.

Ermioni is another beautiful seaside village with a port at 20 minutes drive which offers small fishing restaurants. There is also a local ferry to Hydra Island.

The Islands of Spetses, Hydra or Poros can easily be reached by regular ferry lines from the port of Porto Heli.

Each island has a unique morphology and rich history which formed a specific and distinct character in each community. This is evident in the architecture and the micro social environment of its people. Fortified ports and family mansions dating back Centuries as well as a very important neoclassical architectural heritage render those destinations both beautiful to see and interesting to discover.

Some of the destinations listed in the Unesco World Heritage list are,

the ancient theatre of Epidaurus which, during the summer period, hosts a significant part of the Athens-Epidaurus Festival with important theatrical productions.

There is the archeological site of Mycenae and Tiryns, where the mythological King Agamemnon presided according to ancient world renown poet and story-teller Homer.

Events around Porto Heli

On the island of Spetses, in April there is a Triathlon event, in October, there is an international event called Spetses mini marathon including a swimming race from the mainland to the island and a 26km running race around the island which is becoming very popular and is attracting local and foreign athletes.

During the third week of June there is a classic yacht race, the Regata, with many Greek and international participations, a widely popular event spanning a successful five year course with an ever gaining momentum.

On the second weekend of September there is a vivid reenaction of the victorious naval battle of Spetses, the Armata, where the Greeks defeated a Turkish siege and is a big attraction among Greek and foreign visitors.

Greek Riviera

The Gulf of the Argo-Saronikos is a sea protected from the seasonal winds, the meltemia, and the rough seas these create. Meltemi wind blows daily from the first week of July to the end of September, so this location is ideal for sailing. The physiology of the coastline with its many small hidden bays and its low hills overlooking the gulf create an idyllic scenery. Along with the establishment of several high-end hotel brands and residential resorts the area is rightfully given the name “Greek Riviera”

Potro Heli port town is accessible by regular speed ferry from the Capital Athens Port of Piraeus or

by car, driving through Corinth Canal, on to the eastern side of the Peloponnese via Epidaurus Town towards the South-eastern side of the Argolid Peninsula.

A Beautiful Cozy House, with the best location on the water
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

an amazing place on the water

  • 5 of 5

The surfer searches for the perfect wave. We, the perfect waters for swimming and the Augean is where we find it. The place we selected was chosen from the description and aerial photos from Goggle. We lucked out for this house fulfilled our expectations and more. We spent two very wonderful weeks and were sad to leave.

The house is in a gated community sensitively sited on a peninsula projecting into the sea. From time to time we were treated to formal and programmed regattas providing informal entertainment.

The site is private and secure. The lush informal plantings and the dramatic view provides a relaxed natural environment very much suited to our taste.

The friendly port of Porto Heli was close for dally shopping for staples and provided a pleasant contrast to the intimacy of our site. The best compliment is that we would gladly return. The two weeks we spent were delightful and fulfilling.

The extra perk was a side trip to the historic amphitheater of Epidaurus. AS it is on the way to Porto Heli we added a touch of history to the experience.

Awesome location with lovely accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travel to Greece almost every year. We normally stay at high-end resorts located along the seaside. For our most recent trip, September 9th – 16th, 2015, we decided to try something different and we are sure glad that we did. First off, the location is spectacular and very private with extremely beautiful views of the sea from every direction. To access the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean you have a couple of choices, take a 1 minute walk from the backyard to an incredible beach or walk down some beautiful stone stairs that are also located in the backyard and dive right in. Either way you will be in sea heaven!

In terms of the home, it has everything you could possibly need with plenty of space, all modern appliances and includes high speed internet access. Also, it was beautifully clean and tidy! There is even a very nice guest house included in the package. Although we spent most of our time at the property in the large backyard gazing out at the sea and at the two islands located nearby, Spetses and Hydra, the home is very comfortable and well appointed.

The owner of the property, Konstantinos, speaks perfect English, among other languages, and warmly welcomed us at the property. Everything went without a hitch and we are definitely going to return to this property. There are plenty of nice places to visit in the area such as the seaport of Porto Heli or Hinista Bay. You can even take a water taxi to the island of Spetses, 10 minutes or island of Hydra, 45 minutes. Both islands are very beautiful and definitely a worthwhile excursion.

This area of Greece is easily accessible from Athens and was only a 2 hour drive from the center of Athens. We highly recommend this property for those of you who are interested in a dream Greek location.

Agios Aimilianos church is located 150m away, it is the easiest short walk from the house which will give a good sense of the area's feeling and where a bouts. It is built on an elevated spot offering beautiful views of the sea and several islands can be seen from there. The area is great for walking, on every little turn scenic images fill the viewer's eyes.

The spot is ideal for snorkelling either to left towards Agios Aimilianos cape, a 20min relaxed swim, or to the right, across to the tiny dare i call it, island of Repouli, a 10min swim.

In town one should definitely visit the local potter's studio, Sideris Makis has a long history of creating utilitarian tableware and not only, never seizing to search for a new theme inspired from Greek nature which he develops during the year, ever-changing.

There are many choices regarding dining.

The AKS Hotel's buffet is always an easy and quality wise good choice,

but in order to sip in the old Greece aroma i would suggest a small tavern, The Morias, a simple family run restaurant which locals prefer with good quality and very reasonable prices.

For fresh bread Karagianis bakery at the entrance of the town just before reaching the roundabout or funkier Drougas bakery at the port, they both make great ice coffee, fredo espresso, great against the summer heat, a must try.

For bars either the one after the roundabout to the right as one enters the port or the AKS Hotel bar or just take a stroll from the roundabout up to the end of the port and discover all the town..

There is an open air cinema which is great, there is nothing better than a movie with a cold bear in hand under the night sky, be sure to wear mosquito repellent though!

If you decide to cross over to Spetses Island and you are not in a hurry take the communal water taxi ("kaiki") at 2 or 3 euros per person, otherwise pay a 20euro or more fee for a personal taxi, 15 or 5 min crossing respectively.

To visit the island of Hydra one can take the Regular line ferry from Porto Heli port or find local line organising daily cruises or drive up to Porto Hydra Hotel, a bit further from Ermioni village, half an hour away from Porto Heli. Both are great destinations to discover.

For quality culture experiences, during the summer months, one should watch for the Athens International Festival hosting shows, sometimes even from foreign troupes, at the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus, about 1 hour drive from Porto Heli, a one off experience in the land that created the most important theatrical plays before Sexpear.

On the way driving about half way there, after old Epidaurus, at Koliaki village "i vrissi tou Daveli" restaurant is a great stop at for lunch or to buy local products.

Scenic views will fill the travellers eyes from the moment he or she will leave the Athens international Airport to drive towards the Eastern Argolid peninsula towards Porto Heli, starting from the Korinth canal with mountain scapes interchanging with seaside scapes.

It is under this unique light of the Greek land that the forms of nature triggered the human senses and the imagination to come up with all those myths that the Ancient Greeks wrote.

It is this strong, clear and unforgiving light that animates natures forms is in itself pure inspiration.
