Follow the steps up from the beautiful bustling harbour of Kassiopi; a small tradition fishing village to find the Harbour House seated firmly at the foot of the 14 century Byzantine fortress of Kassiopi. The Harbour House is one of the oldest original buildings in Kassiopi dating back some 350 years. The house has been lovingly renovated over 4 years to high standard and creates a real home from home feel.
The three bedroom apartment can be booked in conjunction with the studio apartment providing accommodation for up to 8 guests.

About the Owner
About Anna Smith
My husband and I have enjoyed holidays in Greece from childhood. Our dream has been to live on one of the Greek islands for many years. We both work, and up until recently I worked for a Jeweller for 14 years, and am now on maternity leave with our gorgeous little son George.
Anna Smith purchased this apartment in 2009
Why Anna Smith chose Corfu
My husband and I searched the Greek islands for many years looking for the right property, not just for us but also for our guests. We thought long and hard about what our wish list was when holidaying with family and friends. We decided that the important factors were; it had to be walking distance to the beach and local amenities, somewhere with beautiful scenery and a house that we could turn into a home.When we bought the Harbour House in 2009 it had not been lived in for a number of years and looked rather sorry for itself. A complete renovation was in order, so we had a new roof, plumbing, electrics, exposed the beautiful old beams and stone walls hidden away under thick powdery plaster. We have tried to preserve all original features and to have a sympathetic eye when furnishing.
What makes this apartment unique
The house is in an ideal location for easy walking access to beaches 5 minutes away, shops, restaurants, tavernas, and harbour just a few steps away. Centrally located yet still maintains a feeling of privacy.
The Apartment can be booked in conjunction with the studio apartment providing accommodation for up to 8 guests.
30% deposit required at time of booking, balance to be paid 6 weeks before arrival.

A fabulous home away from home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Harbour House and highly recommend it. It is every bit as lovely as the photographs portray. Full of charm and ambiance it is a very comfortable base from which to explore the delights of Corfu. It is well equipped and spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. The owners enhanced our stay and are thoughtful and helpful, even knocking on our door with an umbrella when it rained. We enjoyed our breakfast, lunch and dinners sitting at the table on the garden terrace, several steps from our door, and looking out to sea and across to Albania. Several more steps took us to the upper terrace with views over Kassiopi harbour as well. We didn't want to leave.
The Harbour House is beautiful and we couldnt have chosen a better apartment or location. The attention to detail inside is outstanding, the living accomodation is much bigger than expected and the views from the terraces is to die for. Anna and Phil are the nicest people and always available to help.We went with our 3 grown up children who enjoyed it as much as we did.
You are as it says right on the harbour with a multitude of great resaurants, shops and supermarkets. There is a good local bus service into Corfu Town a few minutes walk away. The beaches we went to are only 10 minutes away with white pebbles and crystal clear water, we did alot of snorkeling but I would advise to get beach shoes available in all the local shops. Hire a boat in the harbour and take a trip along the beautiful coastline, we stopped at Kouloura Bay for lunch which was delicious. Kassiopi is quite unspoilt with plenty to do. Bring plenty mosquito repellent and you will be fine.
I would so recomend the Harbour House you won't be disappointed.

What a great location, a great house and Phil and Anna who were always on hand to offer dining suggestions, beaches etc.
There was a great choice of restaurants around the harbour and didn't break the bank eating out every night. The atmosphere, especially in the evening is laid back and friendly.
The local beaches were nice but we loved the sandy beaches a short 10-15 car ride (or 25 mins on boat). They are very child friendly.
We would recommend hiring a boat for at least one day. You can access lots of beaches and secluded bays that are only accessible from the water.
Harbour house is lovely, clean and has plenty of room for 7 people. It has all the things you need for a holiday stay.
We would definitely return
Beautifully stylish holiday home.
Once you've got over the physical exertion of hauling your suitcases up the steep steps you realise it's all worth it. Tucked away but so close to all amenities you couldn't ask for more. The hosts are welcoming and will help willingly with your luggage. They have a good wealth of knowledge about the area and the best places to go. They are close and on hand shold you need anything but totally unobtrusive.
The renovation they have undertaken on the house is simply stunning. Couldn't fault a thing except the very squeaky bed in the master bedroom! The kitchen is very well equipped and there is more than enough space for everyone to sit. We were a family of six including three teenagers and we were very comfortable. The interior decorations are very tasteful and add to a very peaceful experience. The outdoor space including two separate eating areas were ideal. And the views over the harbour from the sunbathing deck are worth the hike. All in all, one of the best self catering accommodations we have stayed in. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Great family holiday
We had our first overseas family holiday at the Harbour House, complete with grandparents. We could not have asked for a more comfortable and well-equipped base from which to explore Kassiopi. Anna, Phil and George made our stay so easy and enjoyable and were the most wonderful hosts. George lent us his books and toys, whilst Anna and Phil were on hand for any of our queries, from wet weather activities for kids (great indoor soft play at the lime lounge!) to emergency dentists. We felt at home from the moment we arrived; there was a stocked fridge, a ready-made up cot and they even provided a midweek clean. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The views from the terrace are stunning and everything you need is on the doorstep. We didn't leave the village for ten days! We had a great time - thank you.
Harbour House is an absolute delight!
Everything about Harbour House was perfect, as were the owners. Attention to detail, friendly yet unobtrusive, super location within a few steps from the bars and harbour yet incredibly quiet and secluded. Congratulations Anna and Phil; you have put together the perfect package! Kassiope is the best get away holiday location ever!

Activity and Interests
5 minutes walk to beautiful beaches. Many other fantastic beaches to explore if you choose to hire a car, or book one of the many excursions available.
+/= 1 hour drive from airport, transfers can be arranged on request. Car hire is not necessary but great if you want to see other parts of the island.
Harbour, shops and restaurants are all just a few steps away.
A complementary food hamper will be awaiting the guests upon arrival.
There are some fabulous restaurants and Tavernas who offer a delivery service to the house, if you fancy a night in but don't want to cook!
If heating is required during colder months this can be paid for locally.

- Notes on accommodation: The house is divided into three completely separate dwellings each with their own entrance, the top floor consists of the three bedroom apartment, the ground floor consists of the owners home and the studio apartment which is next to the owners home. The owners are a very friendly family who are very happy to give advice or help were needed but also completely respect their guests privacy at all times. Outside: Very pretty separate outside seating areas for both apartments with barbecue, table & chairs, parasol, flowers and plants. We do not have a swimming pool yet, but there are pools that can be used at any of the complexes free of charge just a few minutes walk away. NEW FOR 2015!!!! Beautiful upper garden terrace with table and chairs to sit and relax amongst the ancient olive trees, watch the boats sailing into the fabulous harbour and see the sun go down over the Albanian mountains. Please note this part of the garden is only for the guests of the three bedroom apartment or if the studio is rented with the three bedroom apartment.
