Immediately you’ll realize that you are in the beautiful country of some of the finest olives and olive oil in the Mediterranean! A sprinkling of palm trees, oleanders, honeysuckle and geraniums suggests the sea and beach are nearby. There is a large BBQ Grill, and in addition a Closed Double Barrel Smoker for those wanting to try their expertise at smoking meat!

Me and my family(5 people) had beautiful holiday in the beach house. Location of the house is great - just few steps from the beach with excellent view of the sea from the balcony where we had launches. Fish, vegetables and fruits we bought from vans which are running near the house. We used BBQ Grill each day for fish, shrimps, sweet pepper, eggplant, octopus, etc. Cottage is very well equipped (dishes, household appliances, bedclothes and even traveling books re to Greece attractions). Hosts are very polite and helpful.
We spent 2 1/2 weeks in the beach house with our boys age 8 and 15 in July 2014. At arrival we were greeted with a happy welcome with extras to get settled by family of the host. Very much appreciated.
The beach house was just as described. Magnificent view, calm surroundings, well equipped kitchen and nice bedrooms. The beaches close to the house was nice to use on lazy days.
The location of the house is perfect for short trips to experience great beaches and locations elsewhere in Sithonia and Halkidiki.
We would not hesitate to recommend the beach house :)

Мы отдыхали в доме у Teddy&Asia нашей большой семьей. Это было замечательное время для нас и наших четверых детей! Этот дом мы будем вспоминать с большим теплом и удовольствием! Нас встретили очень прекрасные люди - заботливые и гостеприимные! Дом полностью соответствует описанию, есть все необходимое для комфортного отдыха. Не оставляет равнодушным удивительный вид с балкона! Мы влюбились в эти виды, они нам будут сниться!
С легким сердцем рекомендуем всем, кто заинтересован в теплых отпускных впечатлениях с максимальным комфортом!!!
...и еще раз...ОГРОМНОЕ СПАСИБО TEDDY&ASIA!!!
Sergei, Emilija & children
We spent whole summer at Teddy and Asia's beach house, and this was one of the best vacations we ever had! House is very beautiful, clean, equipped with everything you might ever need on vacation. View from terrace is spectacular, I will remember it forever! Sea is very clear, great for swimming.
Gerakini has perfect location - is very close to Thessaloniki (less than one hour by car), and only few miles away from most beautiful beaches on Sithonia. Place is very quite, so if you need to rest this is perfect (at night you only hear sound of waves and crickets).
Our hosts were best part of our vacation! They were super nice and helpful!
So, if you are looking for a place to stay during your vacation - look no further!
This was our best family vacation so far, with our kids 7 and 9 years. If it was not for some friends who were on holiday nearby we would actually not even use the car. It`s really close to the beach and the camping restaurant and shop is very close as well. The wireless internet was working and fast.
The house was nice and cozy. It's just a pity that the host charged us from the security deposit without even telling us anything in advance. One of the cords to turn on/off the ceiling fan broke, but it broke by just pulling it. So there was nothing we could do to help it! Moreover, we have been charged for other items that we didn't break and they already were like that when we arrived. It would have been nice if the host would have contacted us before doing these charges. Pity that such nice experience ended up like that!
Please keep this a secret because if it gets out I will have to make my August reservations for next year at Christmas : great place ,great hosts , almost on a private beach. The bathrooms had showers actually built in (not the unsanitary shower curtains that are so popular in the south). Our gracious hosts had coffee , honey, olives, olive oil and other welcoming amenities available when we arrived so we could focus on settling in instead of going shopping the fist moment we arrived.
Also great: the airco and the ceiling fans = cool August and no mosquitoes. If you have sweet blood you will appreciate this double luxury.
So , please keep this secret to yourselves. A great place for family and romance. The balcony overlooking the sea is worth the trip in itself......
