A wonderful, romantic and secluded neo-classical house situated in a private estate with direct beach access and jetty

The Captain's Hideaway is an absolutely unique property that is set above its own secluded cove on the island of Spetses. An ancient smugglers' pathway leads you from the jetty up to this neo-classical house that is surrounded by a pine-scented forest.

This handsome 19th Century house is all on one level. A bright and very spacious living room delightfully decorated in Mediterranean colours is a wonderful and comfortable place to sit and relax surrounded by the coolness of the forest and with glimpses of the dazzling sea below. A well-equipped kitchen is situated off this main living room. There are two double bedrooms each with views of the surrounding gardens and woodland. A bathroom with large shower area is shared by the two bedrooms. There are also two single divans in the living room for 2 extra guests. A long, stone terrace to the front of the house is a perfect outdoor dining spot. The property is also unique in that it is off the National Grid for electricity. At night when the candles and gas-lamps are lit, the house and garden take on a magical atmosphere. There is air-conditioning throughout with new solar panels and a state-of-the-art generator to provide back-up so that all modern comforts and facilities can be used.

The Hideaway is the only property situated on this peninsula and is surrounded by natural pine forest that stretches right down to the seashore. Throughout the garden and woodland, there are many peaceful places to sit, relax and contemplate the views surrounded by pristine nature. Hours can be spent watching the dolphins swim and play in the bay below.

Whenever you feel like a cool dip in the sea, the sparkling cove with its crystalline waters is only steps away. It is as good as private to this property since the only access to the beach is via the property's own grounds. The villa also has two sea kayaks for guests' use.

By quad bike it is easy to get into Spetses Town for shopping or for an evening out at one of Spetses' sophisticated water-side bars or restaurants. Boat hire can sometimes be arranged for guests who have a power boat licence, and the boat can be moored at the jetty below the villa. On Spetses there are watersports available at Kaiki Beach, Aghia Marina and Ayii Anargiri.

Spetses is the southern most island in the Saronic group and has an aristocratic heritage evident in the many beautiful neo-classical mansions that line its harbour. The island has a sophisticated variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops and has always been a favourite holiday destination of the Athenians. There are frequent boat connections from Pireaus, the Peloponnese, and surrounding islands.

Tessa J. arrived 22th October 2022 

Really well looked after by Marie. Beautiful location. Didn’t realise how big some of the boats that come and dominate the bay are - the summer is not a time I would choose to book - might be good to include a picture that does show how busy it gets. I loved how simple the house was but I think guests need a little sign in the shower room to leave the window open for ventilation when showering with hot water - I think this is important. I also think it is truly time to spend a few pounds on the kitchen - a new oven must be over due….? And just a thorough clean of the kitchen drawers and cupboards would make a massive difference. Panos was fabulous and we did have a truly brilliant week. We will definitely book again. 

Laura P. arrived 29th August 2022 

Thank you so much for your email and for all your help in the run up to our trip to Captains Hideaway. Panagiotis was so helpful and kind and we really thought he was brilliant.  The cottage was very beautiful and looked like it had come straight out of "World of Interiors" Magazine.  We loved going on the kayaks and the perfect little beach. The only thing which would stop me going there again was the noise from the many superyachts which used the rocks on our little beach to tie up their stern lines.  They were very noisy and also meant that it didn't feel so private.  There was an amazing wedding on Zogaria beach on Saturday which was organised by an international events organiser called Faye Vasilidis. They got married in the tiny church next to the house. The event organisers had set up an enormous dining area and huge dance floor and bar etc all on the beach and the music was thumping until 8am!! Also we were not confident with the Quads and the man wouldn't let us rent them so we were left as  hostages to the water taxi to get us back and forth, so I think I would rent something near a lovely beach but not quite as off the beaten track in future.  For people who felt confident on Quads and motorbikes - it wouldn't be an issue. We went to a lovely hotel in Hydra for one night which was an enormous treat and loved it.  On Hydra we ate at Techne and it was fantastic. We would definitely rent a villa with you again Maria and I can't thank you enough for all your kind help and organisation.

Lucie D. arrived 6th August 2022 

The Captain’s Hideaway was lovely. We loved the house and garden and would recommend it.

Simon P. arrived 30th July 2022 

We really enjoyed our time in Greece and at Captain’s Hideaway. The service that the PGV team provided was excellent and we appreciated all the help and advice. The car hire solution from Athens and the transfer back to the airport were exemplary. Captain's Hideaway was beautiful and furnished impeccably. We couldn’t has asked for more from the accommodation. Panos was great and obviously very passionate about looking after the property. A few things may have been lost in translation but hopefully this didn’t matter. The quad bikes were fun and to a certain extent essential when staying at CH. The Hideaway is the only property situated on this peninsula and is surrounded by natural pine forest that stretches right down to the seashore. Throughout the garden and woodland, there are many peaceful places to sit, relax and contemplate the views surrounded by pristine nature. Hours can be spent watching the dolphins swim and play in the bay below. Whenever you feel like a cool dip in the sea, the sparkling cove with its crystalline waters is only steps away. It is as good as private to this property since the only access to the beach is via the property's own grounds. The villa also has two sea kayaks for guests' use.

Hans D. arrived 16th July 2022 

We really had a wonderful time at Spetses and in the Captain’s Hideaway. The simple life, beautiful nature and authentic little house, made the holiday an unique experience. We regret we couldn’t say thank you enough to the wonderful man who assist us with everything, because the watertaxi man was in a rush to leave. We want to thank you as well for all your efforts to make our holiday unforgettable!! Thank you so much Marie-Louise !!! We greatly appreciated all your kindness!

Daisy M. arrived 26 June 2022

Kate F. arrived 8 August 2020 

We loved both our weeks! PGV support superb throughout, very start of booking to final moments - thank you. Local support fab esp Panos at Captains Hideaway - and we loved the quad bike man! Love the welcome hamper.  Captains Hideaway: Absolutely magical - best ever villa. Setting, interior, privacy, uniqueness. The beach. The openness of Dimitri sharing boathouse etc. The quad bikes  - amazing! A magical holiday once again. Thanks Marie Louise and Vickie for all your patient advice! I recommend you to everyone and will certainly be using you again.

Christopher M. arrived 1st Sept 2019 

Thank you, everything was great!

Will D. arrived 6th July 2019 

We had a memorable holiday. It s a lovely house. The arrangements with Marie-Louise regarding detail of our stay and water taxi pick ups all went like clockwork. I was impressed by the general level of information and support you provided. Panos was a wonderful and very obliging manager of the house and it was nice to meet the owner Dimitris. We really appreciated that the kitchen was so well equipped, as we like to cook, and that Panos had done a food shop for us when we arrived. Please convey our thanks to Marie-Louise, to Panos and to Dimitris. Hoping we can come again some time, and I will be recommending it to friends and family.

Nick L. arrived 12th June 2019 

We had a lovely time – the villa was beautifully private, freshly painted, pretty and shaded in the pines, the beach and boathouse also lovely. We were on the beach and swimming every day. It was perfect for us – we wanted quiet and to do our own thing. Million thanks, and will be v tempted to come back!

Jenny D. arrived 31st May 2019 

We've enjoyed every minute of our stay here. The house and location are very special and just the kind of place that we look for when we go away. Quiet, quirky with lots of character and bags of style. So bored of grey and white interiors!!

 Robb K. arrived 20th Oct 2018 

That you for all your help. We had a lovely time thank you.

Camilla M. arrived 26th Aug 2018 

We have arrived at Captains after a fabulous 5 days on Hydra. It is magical here and we are sinking into utter relaxation.

Richard K. arrived 23th July 2018 

We had an amazing time staying at the Captains Hideaway, it was such a beautiful setting. Thank you for arranging the quad bike hire - we spent an afternoon looking around the island and used it to go into the town each evening to eat. Although one night the local taverna stayed open for us which was lovely. Once again thank you very much,
 

Kathryn S. arrived 14th July 2018
