Overview

About the property

Enjoy a luxurious Greek vacation lifestyle and the calm, turquoise blue waters of the Ionian Sea from this beautiful waterfront residence with first class amenities and craftsmanship. This three story home featuring Neoclassical architecture was completed in 2012 and is located on prime waterfront on the Geni peninsula of Lefkada island with its own private cove and two beaches.

The secluded property is located two homes down from the former President of Greece. It also sits across the bay from Scorpios Island, former home of Aristotle Onassis and Jackie Kennedy, that was purchased in 2012 by Dmitry Rybolovlev. The property also sits across the bay from Meganissi Island, which half of the island was purchased in late 2013 by Lord Charles Jacob Rothschild for development purposes.

The House:

The three level house boasts a fantastic floor plan with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, two full kitchens, two living rooms, two dining rooms, library/reading room and a large laundry room facility. The first level, which is wheel chair accessible, is a separate poolside suite with two bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers, a full kitchen and a combined living and dining room seating for 6. This suite provides a nice separate living space for nannies, extended family and friends.

The second level contains a very large chef’s kitchen with seating for 7 that is perfect for entertaining. Adjacent to the kitchen is an expansive dining room with seating for 10, a guest bathroom, a large living room with a 60' LED SMART TV and a separate children’s play area. The second level also includes a very large wrap around balcony the length of the home with a covered outdoor wrought iron dining table for 10 along with two chaise lounge chairs. This is a great spot to enjoy dinner or happy hour while watching sailboats and mega yachts go by.

The third level you will find the master bedroom suite with TV, a private bathroom with dual showers, a large library/reading room with a wall of windows with view of Scorpios and Maganisi Is., and two bedrooms with a shared bathroom that includes a tub and shower. All bedrooms have their own balconies with views of the sea with the exception of one bedroom which has views of the gardens. This level also features a large wrap around balcony the length of the home with outdoor seating available on each bedroom balcony facing the sea. This is the perfect spot to enjoy the most spectacular sunrises or your favorite glass of wine during happy hour. It’s always 5:00 somewhere, right?

The Grounds:

Surrounded by olive trees, wild flowers and vacant land on both sides, this gated property has a gently sloping stone walkway to two private beaches with a dock and space to moor your boat up to 40 feet. At the larger beach covered with small pebbles, you will find a safe dock for your boat and a vast stone patio with lounge chairs under a large pine tree to provide shade on those sunny days. An outdoor stone covered shower is adjacent to the patio and beach. The smaller quaint beach which you can access by stone stairs, is ideal for a glass of wine or Mythos with your loved one. Both beaches are wonderful places to search for shells hidden in the small pebbles with your children.

The grounds, surrounded by stone walls, are covered with beautiful gardens filled with our favorite flowers, vegetables, herbs and fruit trees including several old olive trees we cultivate and harvest for our own olive oil in the fall. During the summer, the organic vegetable garden is filled with cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and onions. All the makings for a perfect Greek salad!

To cool off there is a tile lined infinity pool leveraging the latest UV based pool system to go easy on your skin. Adjacent to the pool is a heated outdoor pool shower and a large covered patio with built in seating for 10 that includes a beverage refrigerator, ceiling fan and stereo system. Next to the patio and pool you will find a double hammock under beautiful shade trees, a dining/coffee table and a large outdoor cooking and BBQ area built in the “traditional Greek style” with built in seating, sink, grill and a bread/pizza oven. Table tennis with seating to view competitive matches is available as well.

The stone driveway adjacent to the home is substantial with space to easily park 8 cars securely.

What's included:

Plush bath robes and Korres bath products will be provided for use. You will also receive house cleaning services daily for up to two hours with change over linens provided once a week.

For outdoor fun, you will have access to our two double Ocean Kayak sea kayaks to explore the calm Ionian sea at your doorstep. Within 15 minutes you can kayak from our home to Scorpios Island, the bustling town of Nidri with over 30 restaurants and a multitude of shops, or Desimi beach, a beautiful white pebbled beach with a fantastic taverna for lunch. We also have table tennis available in the shade behind the villa.

Kassi, our property manager and former owner of a successful Greek/Italian restaurant in upstate New York, will provide a warm welcome Greek meal with local wine upon your arrival.

During your stay, if you are also interested in hiring Kassi to provide a Greek lunch or dinner for your party, the cost is 100 euros plus the cost of food. Food receipts will be provided on site.

We can provide excellent referrals for private boat charter, local diving trips, water skiing instruction with pick up and drop off provided from our cove, wine tasting at our favorite winery, kite and wind surfing.

We are also happy to send you a link to 80 additional interior and exterior photos of the home.

*Please note, the villa is only available for a minimum 7 night stay arriving and departing on Sundays.

*Please note, the 5th bedroom (with one queen bed and one single bed) in the poolside suite with an ensuite bathroom does not have an exterior window; however, it is a very large bedroom and quiet and we have a lot of guests who prefer it. If you prefer to rent the house as a 4BR home for just 8 persons and not use the 5th Bedroom we can accommodate that request and reduce the weekly rental rate during the months of May, June and September.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"From the moment we arrived, tired from an early flight from the UK, to find the villa hostess had prepared the most delicious welcoming meal for us to the moment we left with tears all round, we experienced total relaxation and comfort beyond our expectation.  



The peaceful location, wonderful views and carefully planned layout of Water's Edge would be hard to beat and we so loved walking down that little path, lined with lavender and butterflies, to our dear little beach, perfect for swimming, snorkeling and anchoring our boat.  We will most definitely return."

Greek Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, the Villa is stunning and the small seaside village of Nydri idyllic. Everything I had dreamed. Kassi the caretaker was there to greet us when we arrived, with a wonderful Welcome Basket. She was so accommodating.

Vacation settled in to a relaxing routine. The mornings spent enjoying Greek coffee, watching the sunrise from the balcony. The overwhelming beauty of the islands in view.

That is about the only time spent indoors. The pool is magnificent. We cooked virtually all of our meals outdoors at the BBQ. When we didn’t feel like cooking, the port of Nydri had lots of adorable little restaurants and coffee houses to choose from.

During the day, you can do as many water sports or as much touring as you want, or never leave the Villa. Of course, Siesta was spent reading quietly by the sea. Heaven!

What an amazing vacation.

Tranquil Bliss

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time we had in Lefkada, will always remember this holiday. The property is tranquil bliss. Nestled away from the bustle, it is lovely and quiet yet a short drive to many restaurants and places to eat. It is like your own private part of Greece is carved out for you.

For me the highlights are the balcony with the amazing sea view. Take a drink on the deck in the afternoon with your favourite book, or friend and watch time pass away. The colors of the water, the warm air and a beautiful house to enjoy it from.

The house was built by Americans so it has a level of comfort that is a high standard. I have stayed in other island homes that call themselves ‘chateau’ or ‘villa’ but didn’t live up to that name and had a rustic level of comfort with coin operated air conditioners and ratty linens – this house is the complete opposite. Great comfortable beds, great linens and towels, lovely bathrooms, air-conditioning, large well equipped kitchen and an amazing pool to top it all off! Can’t wait to go again.

Live like an Onassis!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived on the Island of Lefkada, we felt like we found paradise. When we arrived at the house in Geni, it was beyond our dreams - a true slice of heaven. The house itself is not only laid out perfectly for a large group or family, but it is decorated with impeccable taste and contains everything you need (except food - but I'll get back to that) for a weeks rest without ever leaving the property! You can snorkel the pristine waters and coves off the private beach, swim or do "aqua yoga - sun salutations" in the gorgeous pool that overlooks the ocean, or drink cocktails for sunset on one of the many decks. The bedrooms are delightful - with clean wooden floors, spectacular views and a phenomenal shower in the Master bedroom. The kitchen has everything one would need to make gourmet meals - or simple breakfasts. Or (and now back to the food) you can drive just a few minutes to town for yummy coffee and pastries or groceries for supper. Or better yet, boat over to another village for a delectable seafood feast. But I have to admit, one of my favorite parts about being there was getting up early, sipping coffee on the deck, contemplating the ocean and quietly scheming how I could stay there forever without anyone noticing.

Gorgeous Villa on the beautiful island of Lefkada

  • 5 of 5

We visited this beautiful water front property secluded in the rolling hills of Lefkada in June of 2015. It is truly one of the most beautiful settings we have visited in years. The owners have their lovely home in excellent condition and appointed with all the ementities you could imagine. We stayed for a week and enjoyed laid back culture and the local people we encountered. We toured the island's interior villages and mountains. The mountain views are absolutely breathtaking and stunning. For us, the most memorable part of our stay was our late afternoon, early evening boat rides to local restaurants around the island. The food and people are simply fantastic. We highly recommend this lovely property and a visit to Lefkada.

A True Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Loved my week staying at this oasis on the water. Home is large with elevated views of Scorpios. It's fully equipped with everything you need. Outdoor living is a must with a swimming pool and covered outdoor kitchen. There's a path to a private dock and swimming area. The water in Lefaka is pristine, warm and perfect for swimming. Home is located about 30 minutes from the airport. My favorite spot was napping in the covered, outdoor lounging area which is spacious. The area is quite and feels like a real vacation. There's a local bakery on the way to the property that has the most delicious pastries that I've ever tasted. Truly addictive!
