The Myrtia House is a beautiful stone built old village house of late 1800 with 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room with a double sofa bed and a separate kitchen, a wonderful romantic courtyard with mosaic pebble floor, and three terraces on different levels. The house is intimate enough for just a couple yet large enough for a family of 6 persons. The house is located in a typically Greek lively neighborhood. The Myrtia house is a very tastefully and colorfully designed rental house, all furniture are old and we had them restored. Which is something that has resulted in the most cozy holiday home and worthy of spending your precious vacations. There are lots of candles everywhere, and the lightning is always dimmed, indirect and warm: something that is very important for us and most of our artistic lamps and mirrors are made by our good friend Inez Lacunes, who lives and works in Lahania where she sells her art. In the myrtia house you can have a real holiday like any vacation should be: enjoy your breakfast in the morning sun on the wonderful terrace or relax on one of our sun loungers. There is sea view from 2 terraces. You can sunbathe totally private (naked if you like) sleep on the roof terrace in the lovely double hanging bed.
The Myrtia house is a very colorful and happy rental house that is only for rent since may 2010. It was a ruin that we renovated during 2 years into the beautiful holiday home that it has become now. The house has 3 different roof terraces, with a built in bbq, 2 dining areas, a double hanging bed under a pergola, and on another roof terrace one can lie in the sun on the sun beds for hours so that one really has a feeling of making the most out of the holiday.
You enter Myrtia house via a charming enclosed courtyard. Walk inside the holiday home to the lounge dining area with a double sofa bed or to the well equipped kitchen and adjoining a beautiful bathroom. Next to the bathroom is the downstairs bedroom, which has mosquito nets over the beds, and cozy lighting. Going upstairs you will find the nice wooden double bed, and an en suite bathroom, which are all very colorful. From the bedroom you can go onto the terrace with the kitchenette and b.b.q. which is also reachable through the outside stairs. One terrace further up, one can enjoy on the sun beds and enjoy full privacy because of the walls around. One terrace further is the hanging bed for 2 people with mosquito nets, so one could even sleep there. From this terrace you have a sea view and you can see Turkey and Marmaris.

There is one well sized bathroom with basin, shower and toilet, and to be comfortable, another small toilet with shower and basin was built.

The kitchen door opens onto the courtyard. On the other side one gets into the hallway with the main bathroom and a bedroom. The kitchen is also the place where one goes up the stairs to the bedroom upstairs.

The bathrooms both have a shower, basin and a toilet. The bathroom furniture is made after our own design, and the mirrors are made by our artist friend.Outside Outside
