The house is designed and built in a way that captures the best of the traditional architecture of the Outer Mani region. The walls were built from a double layer of local stone providing excellent insulation and creating an impression of timeless elegance. The natural reds and yellows in the stone capture and reflect all the warm colours of the sun, especially at sun set. The stone has been left deliberately bare in the main room with small earthenware features setting off the natural beauty of the stone. The main room has a high ceiling and fan so that air circulates to provide natural air conditioning. The mezzanine area in the main room providing a generous double bedroom is a feature of Mani architecture. All the furniture has been hand-made by the local carpenter who also made the stairs and internal doors. The door ways and window sills are made from marble, and the downstairs floors made from Aegean tiles with a traditional Greek pattern as a feature around the doorways. There are shutters, mosquito nets and double glazing on every window and door. A small basement area houses the washing machine and garden furniture.

There is a large fireplace for those who wish to stay in the winter months and a plentiful supply of olive wood.
From the living room, two glass doors lead out onto the first of two patio areas with plenty of space for sitting and eating out. The first patio catches the sun in the afternoon and evening and is the perfect place to sit and watch the sun go down across the bay. Olive trees, herb garden and wild pear tree provide a pleasing counterpoint to the view. Steps down from the patio or the path round the back of the house lead to the second patio which catches the sun in the mornings and is more secluded hidden from the road by olive, orange and lemon trees. The garden furniture and stone benches built into the walls provide a wonderful setting for large or intimate evening meals. The garden area has fruit trees, jasmine, geraniums and bougainvillea and an open area of grass and succulent plants. Further steps lead down into a terraced orchard area with a fig tree and several ancient olive trees. This area also includes a car parking space.
