About Hugh Pettifer

I run Villa Waves with my Daughter Olivia, Im a New Zealander who has lived in the Uk for the last 30 years, we run a construction company in London and try to put our personal taste and experiance we use in our every day lives, into Villa Waves.

Hugh Pettifer purchased this villa in 2008

Why Hugh Pettifer chose Corfu

I was looking to buy land and build in Corfu when I stumbled onto a picture of the villa . I asked the agent to send me a photo from the front of the property to which she replied we will need to hire a boat to do that, I was hooked and booked a flight.

when I saw waves she was very run down but the challange to make it into a beautiful holiday villa was to much to resist.

What makes this villa unique

From the first moment I stood on the terrace and looked down at the beech and out to see ( the mainland to the left the mountains to the right ) I knew this property had a lot to give with its secluded beech and breath taking veiws.

Week in your beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We all loved staying at this amazing villa, the place felt very homely and the view was amazing. We made full use of the boats which was the tick for me when we were looking for a place to stay.

Only negative was the parking and the road.

We will be back that's for sure.

Lovely waterfront location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 9 days and had a great time. However there were downs as well as ups. The villa was clean tidy and well equipped but we would have liked at least a change of towels if not bedding. The waterfront location is just so lovely and private but you are on the flight path to the airport and the planes are low and loud. The sun deck on the roof is spacious, comfortable with lovely views of the coast. However there is a busy road adjacent to the villa and you get loud and smelly road noise as well as landing planes. Shade is also limited. The villa is located a couple of miles from benitses which was once a major resort but now is a little tired but does have some nice bars and restaurants. You can walk if you want but the main road does not have a pavement and drivers are...well!.. We took a cab BUT beware. The cars are mostly brand new mercedes because should you wish to use them you get robbed by the driver. 10 euros for a 2 mile trip... really. Anyway. Overall This is a nice villa with seafront location and would recommend as long as you are happy with my comments above.

Heaven on the sea

  • 5 of 5

Villa Waves provides all it promises - it really is right on the sea, literally lower the ladder and you are on the beach - which we had to ourselves practically every day. In the main bedroom and the lower apartment you can actually hear the sea as you drift off to sleep.

The kitchen is well equipped, plus there is an outside barbecue, so it is easy to cater for groups small or large. There is also ample choice of where to eat, all of which have sea views.

The sunrise is stunning and we found it easy to wake for it. Being so close to the sea we all felt very well and wound down quickly from busy lives.

The two kayaks were used extensively throughout our three weeks there, as was the jacuzzi. There really is so much to entertain, or if you want to bob about on crystal clear sea then that too is available.

I would say you would need a car if you wanted to go,into Benitses although there did seem to be quite regular buses going up,and down. Benitses is much quieter than it was in the 80s and 90s but despite the earlier tourist invasion it has retained a lot of its earlier charm. The old village is well worth a visit. Overwhelming we found everyone we met to be genuinely friendly and helpful. We travelled around the south of the island it is is beautiful. Apparently, in the 14th century the islanders were paid 10 gold ducats to plant a hundred olive trees. There are thought to,be 3,000,000 million trees across the island.

Any problems that arose were swiftly dealt with.

I would highly recommend Villa Waves to all - in fact we have already booked to return next year.

Great location and fantastic views

  • 4 of 5

Great base for exploration and relaxation we thoroughly enjoyed every minute, and that dream terrrace to sit and watch the sun go down with a sundowner, not siure what everybody else's idea of a perfect place is, but my wife and I along with the family thought this was quite close, Hugh was a dream to deal with leaving a very warm welcome with perfect weather and cold beers waiting for our arrival.

The road is a little close for comfort but once inside totally forgotten, care should be taken if you have children with you , the unique way to access the sea, being on the doorstep so to speak, is terrific, the kayaks fun for all.

We had a great time and sure to re visit - Thank You

Just stunning location / villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay this year, can't get enough of villa waves with its location , right on the water with a private jetty. Early morning kayaking down to the local tavernas, my family absolutely love this place. We are already looking for flights for next year.

Beautiful property with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Villa Waves!

The house is stylish and well equipped, clean and we appreciated the air conditioning in the bedrooms. The gardens and outdoor space really are beautiful. There are a number of terraces, all with sea views and the sun terrace on top of the house is amazing in the daytime and the evening. The kayaks and close proximity to the sea (it couldn't be any closer) were great for us. The children spent most of the time in the sea or in the kayaks, the younger ones in our group were very reluctant to leave the property. The hot tub was also a hit with them in the evening.

Hugh (the owner) was very helpful throughout the booking process and with the directions. The welcome pack when we got there was a very nice surprise (and was very generous). The prosecco and cold beers were very welcome when we arrived!

I really can't fault the property or suggest any improvements. You have to take care on the road you walk along to get to the property, but that can't be helped and it's more than worth it for that fantastic day.

We enjoyed everything about our stay and the island. We are just now very depressed to be back home in the rain and wind. We will definitely be back!
