Dexa Beach House 1

2 Bedrooms / 1 Bathroom / Sleeps 4

Dexa Beach lies within a large bay of olive groves, one kilometre north of Vathy, the island’s capital port. Behind the beach there are just a few houses hidden amongst the olive groves and there exists a sleepy and peaceful atmosphere.

The two Dexa Beach Houses are set amongst the olive groves, just 15 metres from the beach. Dexa Beach House 1 has 2 bedrooms and Dexa Beach House 2 has 1 bedroom.

The House has a private, shaded terrace, bordered by white oleander and crimson bougainvillaea, and looks out through olive trees to the sea. It is rare to find a property so close to the sea.

The House has been furnished stylishly and comfortably and will appeal to those wanting a simple escape from the world outside with the sound of the sea lapping on to the beach.

In Homer's Oddysey, Odysseus is returned to Ithaca by a Phaeacian longboat (the boat is then petrified by Poseidon). It is said that the Phaeacians dropped a sleeping Odysseus off on Dexa Beach.

There is a simple snack bar/cantina (no music) just above the beach and there is a shaded barbecue area for both Cottages. George, the ever-hospitable owner, lives nearby and is always available for help and advice.

Sunloungers are provided.

Maid service & linen change twice weekly

Location: car hire is recommended for ease of access to all parts of Ithaca, which is too diverse to ignore exploration. Vathy (shops, tavernas and boat hire) is just a 5 minute drive.

Accommodation: ground floor of one double bedroom (air-con); one twin bedroom (air-con); bathroom with shower; small kitchen. Stairs to mezzanine floor of open-plan sitting room and dining area (air-con/satellite TV/DVD/CD player). WiFi. Safety box. Within the grounds there is a separate laundry room with washing machine for both Houses.
