This apartment is just the best location - a three minute walk will get you to the local beach Royal Baths at Mon Repos with a wooden pier to swim from into calm and warm waters. There is a great bar and restaurant here too who take most of the shingle beach front but there is a strip for non bar/restaurant customers although it is difficult to walk into sea from the beach as its rocky so better off going from the pier unless youre just going to sun bath.
The bus stop into town is outside the Royal Baths which can get you into Corfu Town easily. The bus route takes a one way system so if you need to go in the other direction towards Mouse Island and to see aeroplanes take off and land then you need a bus stop on a road set back from the sea front.
If you prefer to walk into town it takes about 20 minutes.
The supermarket is just 7 minutes walk away and there are a host of great tavernas in a woody glade just set back from the sea front.
The apartment owner Bill, met us at the airport with our luggage and took us to our apartment which was stunning and sparklingly clean. There was an outside area with a sun shade and dining table and on the porch a small table and chairs which was a fab place to sit for morning coffee and watch the tourist land train go by every hour.
Entering the apartment you walk into a beautifully light large lounge with TV (inc Netflix) and a small dining table, with a galley kitchen off to the right and the two large double bedrooms and bathroom at the rear of the apartment. Bill showed us the kitchen and fridge and told us to use what ever we liked which included tea, coffee, pasta, olive oil, bottled water, beer, wine, ouzo, bread, butter, cheese, ham and more! We had absolutely everything we needed which got us off to a great start for our Corfu holiday.
We were very sad to leave the apartment and Bill kindly dropped us off at the Green Bus station to continue onto the next leg of our journey.
This has to be the best apartment I have ever stayed in and Bill was so welcoming, helpful and accommodating it just made me fall in love with Corfu all over again.
We are a family with myself and children of 17,18,21 and I would definitely recommend this apartment and location 100%.
