About David Gerrard

I was born in the UK on the 12 of October.I was an Cabinet Maker but after years i left this and worked has a construction Engineer. I have been going to Greece for a very long time.I eventually bought a plot of land and built this Villa.My partner is Swedish and speaks Greek.For many years i worked for a Scuba Diving company where i gained my Instructor Qualification and later became a partner in the business.

David Gerrard purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why David Gerrard chose Corfu

I bought this land to build this villa has an investment.Also because like many people fell in love with Corfu.The property is in the Countryside so its very quiet with only local Greek people around who work there vegetable plots and learned me how to plant and grow vegs.Although we are in the countryside its not far from anywhere and its very easy to get to the town.

What makes this bungalow unique

The benefits from staying here is you can completely relax while on holiday then if you want to go anywhere its no time or distance away.This makes it very convenient.Also we offer lots of sporting entertainment for the guests to enjoy which other villas dont.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to say how much we enjoyed our 2 week holiday. Spacious villa, clean and comfortable accommodation. Ideal play area for the kids to be safe whilst the adults enjoyed the pool.Monica and David have thought of everything. Looking forward to returning soon. Also lovely location and views.


What a great holiday, lovely property with grounds to match. The swimming pool is very safe for the children to use. I look forward to returning.

Thank you for wonderful holiday.


Great Villa, good location to explore Corfu. The whole island is within easy reach even Kavos is less than an hour and 3/4's.

The swimming pool is safe for kids and the elderly. My 79 year old mum loved it and I couldn't keep my 10 year old out even if i wanted to.

I also enjoyed the gym which allowed me to maintain just enough fitness so that I can get back to training without the holiday break causing aches and pains when I get back on Sunday.

Monica and David have thought of everything for a relaxing holiday, from the kids (and adults).
