This particular, 200 year old 100m2 two storey original house is located on Cunda Island, also called the Alibey Island, (in Turkish: Cunda Adasi, Alibey Adasi; Greek: Hekatonisa or Μοσχονήσι/Moshonisi).
Cunda is situated in the northwestern Aegean Sea and is connected, by a causeway and small bridge to Ayvalik, which boasts abandoned Greek churches and small seaside restaurants in old stone houses.

Cunda and its smaller islets were known to the Greeks as Hecatonnesi and were sacred to Apollo.
