Contemporary villa. No expense has been spared in the design and build of the property, with fixtures and fittings of the very highest of standards. Approached through an electric gate and up a long sweeping driveway through the manicured gardens you reach the house. The large horizon swimming pool is set in marble and has spectacular views over the Peninsular of Komeno. The property has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The extremely large master bedroom occupies the majority of the first floor and has three individual sliding glass doors onto the large balconies with views of the sea, Gouvia Marina and the North East Coast. There is an en-suite bathroom and dressing room/nursery. Three further bedrooms and three bathrooms are located on the lower ground floor with views of the gardens.

Easy access to beach and a good choice of restaurants (3 mins drive) in the family resort of Gouvia. Historical Corfu Town is only a short 10 minute drive away.

Beautiful garden and pool, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this villa, when we arrived and saw the electric gates and villa beyond we knew we had selected a very nice villa.

The gardens and pool were beautiful, the villa very clean with goof furniture, TV and music system all working for a change.

The villa is so close to the beeches, local resort and Corfu town, only 15 mins drive, we used the recommended taxi company who was so helpful.

A big thank you to the villa management team who checked us in.

Have a look at the pictures of the pool, it's great.

A great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 weeks at Villa Iroko. The villa was clean and modern and everything worked. The pool was the highlight for both adults and the children and the villa layout works well for 2 families. The villa was peaceful and always a pleasure to come back to after a morning exploring the area and is not too far from the secluded bays of the North east of the island.

The villa owners we helpful and had some great advice on places to eat and see. One of the joys of being in the area is that you are close to Corfu Old Town which is a must see and visit.

A hugely enjoyable holiday and thank you to jane and the Prestige team.

Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on a Saturday night. Directions were excellent and easy to find the Villa. The views were amazing at night but woke up in the morning to an even more spectacular scene of the marina, Gouvia bay, the Greek mainland and Albania in the distance. Villa Iroko was very well equipped. Lots of towels in all rooms, and plenty of pool towels. Bathrooms all excellent and well situated . Well equipped utility room with plenty of washing and drying facilities. The master bedroom on the top floor had the most wonderful views with two balconies. All rooms had good shutters, insect screens and air conditioning. Everywhere was very clean and tidy. Kitchen really well equipped everything you would have at home. The outside eating area where we spent most of our time was level and spacious and leads from the main living room. There is plenty of shade and two very large umbrellas. The gardens were very well kept with lawns and beautiful olive trees. We were 2 adults and 3 teenagers and it all worked well. The swimming pool was the best we have ever rented and have been going to Corfu for 40 years! We played a lot of bat and ball and plenty of space to swim and play games. Swimming towards the edge of the infinity pool with the wonderful views in front of you would be hard to beat. The supermarket is very close to drive to, about 4 mins. There is a good bakery just down the road. A car is essential but you are well located to get East or West of the island. The beautiful coastline of the North East coast is a short drive away. Gouvia with excellent water skiing, paragliding and water sports at the Corcyra Hotel are a must. There are excellent restaurants in the marina, Kommeno and Kondokali all only a 5 minute drive away. Corfu town is only a 15 minute drive. The villa is very secure and private and not overlooked at all. It has an automated gate at the entrance .It is extremely quiet during the day and at night. We had the best holiday ever there and would highly recommend it. We are looking forward to going back next year. Thank you to the owners who were very helpful.

Should have been aired and overhauled before we arrived but was lovely

  • 4 of 5

Owner came each day to do maintenance that should have been done before arrival , no TV , damp bedding , problems with plumbing , had to ask owner for privercy and request his maintenance was done after our stay , shame as it could have been so much better if he had done the work before we got there , we were also told we could have essential provisions on arrival as supermarket was closed on a Sunday but this never happened and so there was no drinking water or toilet rolls etc , luckily our Greek friends came to our rescue , do think an improvement is needed

But we had a great time and would still recommend the villa bearing in mind that it was start of season

Thank you for a superb learning holiday

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Villa Iroko. I am glad you liked the villa, it really is a lovely property and we have only ever had rave reviews and repeat bookings as you will see from previous reviews. As you know the week you were here the weather was terrible, cold and wet, I'm sorry that the villa was damp, we had the decorators in the week before your arrival and the house had been opened for a number of days whilst the work was being undertaken. Unfortunately, we have lost many British Channels recently in this part of Europe via Satellite, we have Sky News and a number of other Channels which our guests haven't complained about before. Not sure what problems you had with the plumbing, you didn't mention this during your stay. The owner who lives in the UK also owns the villa next door on the adjacent plot, I'm sorry your stay coincided with the week he was here to do some minor maintenance on the next door villa. From what you told me he had been round to see you on the Thursday not each day, he had asked if you would mind him fitting a water filter to the washing machine the following morning and after you contacted me I immediately contacted him and told him you didn't want him to bother you. I have looked back on every email correspondence from yourself and not once were we asked to supply any form of shopping which we could gladly have done if requested as we do on many occasions. Also I can assure you that there was a large pack of toilet rolls left in the Utility room. The main supermarket is closed on a Sunday but there are tourist mini markets in Gouvia open 7 days a week. Once again, thank you for taking the time to make your review, . I would like to assure future guests that this is not the norm, the weather in Corfu is usually beautiful, it's 30 degrees as I write this and had the weather been as it should have been I am sure your stay would have been far more enjoyable.

perfect house

  • 4 of 5

The house is simply beautiful.

we were two families with kids and after spending a day at sea (very close with a rental car.. 5 minutes) it was simply delightful to stay in the swimming pool, with a marvellous view, and in the garden to have a bbq.

every room is well furnished and organised... for italian people we left a "caffettiera" the only item we miss.

The island is spectacular and resturants cheap and with good quality food

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 3 son's stayed in Villa Iroko for 10 nights.

We had absolutely no problems due to the Greek economic crisis, we used cash and debit card without any worries, to be honest we wouldn't have known there were any troubles until you read papers etc!

The booking was easy and Jane the manager was only a phone call away and always friendly and helpful with any enquiries.

This was our first time in Corfu and the villa was 20 mins drive from airport, no trouble finding it as directions were spot on. The villa is really superb from the breathtaking views down the hillside to Gouvia bay and the master suite views also fantastic, and we loved the fact it was on its own floor with large ensuite. Our sons enjoyed the wifi and huge selection of DVD's. The villa was spotlessly clean and all the fixtures and furnishing's were to a high standard. We ate out on the terrace everyday, and the infinity pool was large enough for our sons 22, 20, 18 to mess around in all together having great fun.

The villa is ideally placed to visit the a lot of the island, West, North East etc. We particularly loved hiring the small motor boats and exploring the coves and beaches each side had to offer, some of the most beautiful coastline we have ever seen. Kommeno resaturants have the best views and Corfu town being only 15 mins drive is well worth a visit or two.

We would not hesitate to recommend to friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jane for the lovely review and for also mentioning the fact that you were not inconvenienced by the 'Financial Crisis' which so far has had little/no effect on Corfu. So glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope it will be the first of many future visits to Corfu, it really is a beautiful island!! Warmest regards Jane (Prestige Villas of Corfu)
