A wonderfully cosy and well equipped property with an absolutely stunning sea view. The photographs are a totally true depiction of the house, everything was as described. Certainly not huge but more than adequate space for two. Whoever stocked the kitchen had thought of everything - so often not the case with holiday homes. The bathroom has a very good walk in shower and also houses the washing machine. Bedroom is light and airy and nicely decorated. We did have an issue with the twin beds which seemed a strange choice for a place aimed at couples, and also took up more space than a double would. However, we were assured by the manager that this situation was in fact due to be changed imminently. TV had a tiny amount of English language channels and nothing really to hold our interest but then again, we don't come to Corfu to watch telly!
The real stars of the show are the outside space and the gorgeous views of the sea and the Albanian coastline. Very comfortable sun loungers, pleasant table and seating, brick built barbeque and attractive paving, planting and lawns make for a lovely garden. The jacuzzi was still a little too chilly in April, but would be very refreshing for the warmer months.The pretty rocky beach with crystal clear water is less than a stone's throw away.
Our stay was very early in the season so the two nearby restaurants were yet to open so we cannot comment on a) if they are any good or b) if they impact on the peace and quiet of the house but my guess is that they wouldn't be a problem as the garden is quite private. Some pleasant short, circular walks through the olive trees or along the coastline are right on the doorstep.The property is roughly equidistant between Kassiopi and Acharavi, both being about ten minutes drive away.
Finally, a mention for Afrodite the property manager. You could not wish to meet a more warm, helpful yet professional person. Conscious that our arrival being Orthodox Easter Sunday would mean many amenities would be closed, she not only gave us recommendations for tavernas that would be open, but also prepared a grocery pack totally free of charge. Throughout our stay she was available at all times without ever being intrusive.Her English is impeccable. Genuinely lovely!
Location, fantastic right on the beach! Jacuzzi, big brick bbq, restaurant almost next door, bar with fantastic staff about 60m away, small friendly shop couple of minutes walk up the road. Big bowl of fruit, bread and his own wine when we opened the door. Another beach by the bar and another one just past the shop! Friendly cleaner and pool guy twice in the week. Nice village couple of minutes drive turning right onto main road with supermarket, chemist, quad bike or scooter hire, pub, butcher and loads of shops. The only downside was we didn't want to leave, can't wait to go back!!
The sea house cottage was a delightful surprise. It was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. The cottage itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed . We spent 8 days either swimming in the crystal clear water off the beach directly in front of the house or reading a book in the jacuzzi . The nearby Restaurant had a delightful menu and there were many interesting sites in close proximity to the property. It is a perfect getaway for a couple and I would highly recommend it.
The house i slocated in perfect location. It was very easy to book as well. People in-charge were very helpful. There is also amazing restaurant located 2 minutes away from the villa.
Thank you for everything and for sure we will come back fo our next summer vacation!
I stayed here for a week with my wife and I can say that it was absolutely perfect for us! We live in a busy town and were looking for a slice of tranquillity, which I can happily say we have found.
Nothing quite compares to enjoying breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea. Both myself and my wife love cooking and using the grill outside became the perfect excuse to eat 'al fresco' for the week!
For those seeking a beautiful and relaxing holiday, then I would highly recommend Sea House Cottage, the owner was also very proactive and prompt.
Looking out of the window to grey skies in the UK, I do have to say to myself, 'Take me back!'
Thank you for a great holiday!
