Johns' father Dennis, in 1934 built a lovely, spacious stone house in Varka, Stavros Ithaki. In this house John was born in 1934. Soon after his father returned to Melbourne, Australia. When John was 2 1/2 years old, he and his mother Erietti, sailed to Australia to join his father, who had already established a large and well known restaurant in Melbourne. John returned to Ithaca with his wife Olive on their honeymoon in 1964 and since then, have regularly returned. Upon Johns' retirement in 1990, he had his Patriko Spiti (family home) restored and modernized. Most years, John and Olive spend 3 to 5 months in Stavros, occasionally one of their three children with their own families, also visit Ithaca.
