Abstract: Using a very geometric, intuitive construction, an example is given of a homogeneous, compact, connected Hausdorff space $ (X,T)$ that does not satisfy the conclusion of the Effros Theorem. In particular, there is a point $ p$ and a neighborhood $ V$, of the identity in the group of self-homeomorphisms on $ X$, with the compact-open topology such that $ {V_p} = \{ h(p):h \in V\} $ is nowhere dense in $ X$.
