About Hugh

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 purchased this villa in 2008

Why Hugh 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.

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!

The Villa has been re-developed to a very high standard and is situated in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa has plenty of outside space to unwind and relax.

Being near the airport, the peaceful surroundings are interrupted somewhat by frequent low level flights, but we got used to this.

The novel access to beach and use of Kayaks and a rowing boat really added to the holiday.

Parking wasn't ideal and the road across which we had to cross was quite fast, quite typical of the island though so could't be avoided. Once inside the villa grounds all this is behind you.

Our 1 week stay was marred by terrible weather and some family dining space internally would have been appreciate, but we were unlucky and under normal circumstances all meals would be outside on the delightful terrace.

The Jacuzzi was a delight, situated under a fig tree with views to the sea. It is also very well maintained by visiting maintenance staff who were not intrusive.

We would return, perhaps earlier in the year to avoid the storms!

Honeymoon Bliss

  • 5 of 5

"Wow!"

That was the first words my wife and I said when we finally set foot inside the Villa Waves. From the moment we saw it on Owners Direct, throughout the booking process (which was handled very professionally by Hugh and Olivia), to the moment we saw the villa from the plane as we landed in Corfu, we were in love with the place. However, nothing could prepare us for how fabulous the place is in person.

The finish throughout the villa was superb and the facilities/amenities catered for everyone.

We were just two people enjoying a honeymoon but there is plenty of space should we decide to bring our 4 children along in the future.

The roof terrace was great for sunbathing and taking in the view across to Albania/Mainland Greece. However it was overlooked slightly by the busy road and could benefit from a bit more privacy either with taller trees and bushes or a screen.

That said, the rest of the villa felt secluded and private which was lovely for us after our wedding.

The location of the villa was perfect for us and allowed us to get around the island with ease with our hire car (which Hugh offered to help organise). Just a short drive from the airport, the villa is within easy reach of Corfu Town and the supermarket (Lidl) which was very convenient for us.

Beyond Corfu Town there are several resorts boasting some fabulous beaches. The drive alone is worth it for the many picture-postcard views. However we enjoyed our "private" beach back at the villa. Ok, so the beach wasn't exclusive but the amount of others that used it gave it a very intimate feel.

Of all the facilities available at the villa, I think we most enjoyed the binoculars which allowed us to sit on the balcony and view all the expensive looking yachts that sailed past the villa.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone. Couples will enjoy it because of its privacy and seclusion. Families will enjoy it due to the facilities, space and the proximity to the beach.

My wife and I would go back in a heartbeat.

Perfect break in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family, Wife & two boys stayed in August 2016. From the start of the booking process, Hugh & Olivia were so helpful, even help to arrange the hire car. The Villa is finished to a very high standard throughout, with all the amenities you could need. The views from all the terraces was breathtaking and we all spent many a sunrise / sunset enjoying them. The added bonus of the Kayaks proved very popular and there is pretty good snorkelling areas to see lots of smaller fish.

There are reasonable enough restaurants in walking distance, but we found a few gems in Benistas, which unfortunately requires a car to get to. Corfu Town is about a 15 minute drive and was stunning.

We hired a boat on the beach about 300 yards from the Villa. I would recommend going to book a few days before as some of the boats cost more in fuel to run. We ended up paying nearly as much for fuel as the boat hire cost.

If waterparks are your thing, there is one to the west of Corfu town and takes about 25-30mins to get to. We had a hire car and were able to see lots of the island and would say that this is essential.

All in all one of the best holidays we have enjoyed as a family..made even more perfect by the stunning accomodation

Thanks Hugh & Olivia for letting us hire it from you. We may return one day, but so much of the world to see
