Secluded stone-clad minimalism on Meakis Beach
28 guests · 12 bedrooms · 10 bathrooms
Avi Beach House is a spectacular beachfront villa on the southern coast of Crete in the Heraklion region. Situated directly on the secluded Meakis Beach, just outside the village of Arvi, the villa is built gracefully into the seafront cliffs and enjoys breathtaking, panoramic views of the Libyan Sea. Three buildings compose the home: a five-bedroom main house, a six-bedroom guesthouse, and a second guesthouse with a single bedroom—accommodating up to thirty guests in all. With high-end amenities for cooking and relaxation, the villa offers an ideal setting for family reunions and special occasions with friends.
The house is nestled amid flower-clad dunes, pine and cedar forests, and soft white sands where sea turtles lay their eggs every June. Its position enjoys direct sunset views between October and March, while the lack of ambient light creates a stargazers' paradise every night of the year. In this exquisite haven, ample outdoor living areas and invite you to savor the timeless pleasures of the Greek Isles. Plunge into the swimming pool or crystalline waves. Revel in the sunlight on the beach or terrace, and withdraw beneath a rustic pergola for cool drinks in the breeze. Take advantage of the outdoor kitchen and two grills to cook seafood barbecues in the afternoon, and relish them alfresco in the beautiful veranda, accompanied by a bottle of local wine.
The luminous interiors are furnished with an elegant minimalism, accentuating the natural splendor of your surroundings. The kitchen is superbly appointed for the contemporary chef, and easily serves both the outdoor dining area and the interior table. The spacious living room includes a fireplace and TV. Ample windows infuse the home with inspiring vistas.
In the main house, each bedroom features an ensuite bathroom, safe, and TV. The top-level suite opens to a lofty terrace with privileged views. In the large guesthouse, two of the rooms enjoy ensuite bathrooms while the others share bathrooms in pairs. The smaller, seaside guesthouse features a double bed and ensuite bathroom.
Beyond the private world of Avi Beach House, explore the secluded beaches and ancient villages of Crete's serene southern coast—including Arvi and Keratocampos—or venture inland to experience the famed vineyards, wineries, and mountain towns of Heraklion.
