There are 3 large verandas -2 of which are sheltered to enjoy at any weather- with breathtaking panoramic views of nearby islands of Kea and Kythnos , that you will be hard pressed to leave to walk to the beautiful beach of st Kyprianos, which is only 5-7 minutes walking distance.
The house has 3 bedrooms. Two of them have double queen size beds equipped with new comfortable high end mattresses and the third one has 2 single beds. On the upper floor one can relax in either of the 2 bedrooms and listen to the sea. There is also an alternative sleeping-relaxing area in the basement that sleeps 2 more people.
Decoration in the rooms shows the personal touch of the architect-owner. Wooden seilings, plain wooden furniture, stone floors, lights from the architect's collection "spinning tops". The natural colors of these materials make the color palette indoors as well as outdoors.
The 2 full bathrooms are cement coated which gives the feeling of natural stone.
There is also an open kitchen on the main floor fully furnished with all necessary amenities, espresso and filter coffee mashine. The comfortable living room next to that is tastefully decorated.

About Mari Goga
Mari Goga is an Architect (marigoga.com) working self-employed since 1999 in Greece handling the conception and realization of various architectural projects, interiors and pieces of furniture. She graduated The German School in Athens (D.S.A.) and currently lives in Athens. She has spent most of her vacations in this house for the last 20 years since her family purchased this property.
Why Mari Goga chose South Aegean
The location is most convenient as a basis to explore the island. The prevailing meltemi winds come from the north so there are no waves in the nearby beaches as wind is offshore. This means you can enjoy your swim even on the windiest days. Sandy or rocky beach in walking distance from the property. The variety of different verandas, balconies and visiting spots of the house or the plot give the possibility to the inhabitants to spend great moments together or in private.
What makes this House unique
Five minutes from port. Peaceful and wind-pretected beach in walking distance. Sunset view. Relaxing atmosphere. Water collector.

Found the perfect spot in Andros!
We had a wonderful time in this amazing place where we stayed for 10 days. The location of the property is beautiful and peaceful and very conveniently situated a few minutes drive from Gavrio. The house and all rooms are spacious, bright and airy with exquisite architectural features and a beautiful decoration. The outdoor area with beautiful surrounding trees and garden in various levels is truly exceptional, with the large verandas and balconies with stunning views to the sea, for relaxing and enjoying during the afternoons and evenings. Mari and Filippos are great, very relaxed and genuinely friendly and have been brilliant guests, extremely helpful and accommodating. Overall we’ve had an excellent stay and we hope to visit again soon!
Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt in dem bezaubernden Ferienhaus. Das Haus war sehr sauber und bestens ausgestattet. Für unser Baby wurde extra ein Babybett angeschafft (!). Die Zimmer und Badezimmer sind geräumig und die Küche auch für eine größere Gruppe ausgelegt. Besonders toll waren die 2 Terrassen und der Balkon, das Haus ist sehr schön bepflanzt und man hat direkten Meerblick. Empfehlenswert ist in jedem Fall ein Fahrzeug zu mieten, da das Ferienhaus zwischen zwei Ortschaften liegt.
Wir kommen in jedem Fall wieder und können das Haus und seine liebenwerten Inhaber nur weiterempfehlen!
