The Harbour House Studio apartment
Beautifully renovated old wine storeroom in stone house in the heart of Kassiopi. Air-conditioning, microwave, kettle, toaster, sandwich toaster, fridge, hairdryer. Luxury bathroom with rainforest shower, sink with illuminated mirror and shaver socket, wc.
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.

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.

Ideal accommodation in an ideal location
Visited Corfu for a recent wedding & stayed in the Harbour House Studio apartment. The location is very central & proved to be ideal for our needs. The standard of fitting in the studio is very high with a comfortable double bed, very quiet air conditioning & a lovely wet room. The owners stay next door to the apartment & were available to answer all our questions & assist with booking a transfer back to the airport. All in all, a fantastic place to stay in a lovely resort with friendly helpful assistance on site. Thanks Anna & Phil, it was a pleasure to meet you & hope to see you again some time in the future.
Lovely stay in the studio.
Just back from a wonderful week in Kassiopi. We stayed in the studio at Harbour house, a beautifully renovated house. The studio was perfect for our weeks stay, and had everything we needed. A comfortable bed, fantastic shower, quiet air conditioning, a fridge for our wine and beers, kettle for making tea, plus other things which we didn't use as we went out to eat every night. So many lovely places to eat, the food was amazing and very reasonably priced. We didn't need a car as everything was within walking distance but it was great fun hiring a boat to visit some very pretty little bays. Phil and Anna are very good hosts and have good recommendations for their guests. They let us have a look around the three bed apartment which was beautiful, very tastefully decorated to a high standard. lovely views from the gardens as well. I highly recommend both the studio and apartment, and we will definitely be returning. Thankyou Phil and Anna and dear George.

The Perfect Getaway
Wow what an amazing place to stay!! The Harbour House is situated in a wonderful location minutes away from the harbour in Kassiopi and a number of beaches, restaurants and local shops. The studio apartment although small is perfect for two people to stay in. We stayed for a week and had a wonderful holiday thanks to Phil, Anna and George who were the perfect hosts. Phil and Anna were very knowledgeable about the area and the island. There is plenty to see and do. Phil showed us the other rooms in the house which were amazing and have been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard with a great deal of love and care. The gardens are a delight and it is amazing to look out onto Kassiopi Castle. Would highly recommend the Harbour House and apartment and cannot wait to return. Dave and Lynn
We stayed in the 1 bed studio which was perfect. This is is a fantastic house which has been renovated to very high standards. The owners, Anna and Phil, who live at the house are really friendly and very helpful.
The studio its self has a comfy double bed with basic but practical kitchen sufficient for making hot drinks and snacks etc.The washroom is spacious with a lovely shower.
OK, there is no balcony; however a very light and welcoming room with access to a fantastic garden and patio areas plus a just a minute walk to the beautiful harbor.
Considering how close the studio is to the fantastic selection of bars and restaurants, it was really quiet and peaceful.
Phil showed us around the 1st floor 3 bed apartment which is amazing and recommended also.
Thank you for a lovely holiday.
A Great Place to Stay
We had a lovely stay at the Harbour House, the studio has been lovingly restored with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and there was also a welcome pack on our arrival. We particularly enjoyed the use of the outside terrace area. Anna and Phil couldn't have been more attentive and made us welcome ensuring we had a very enjoyable holiday in Kassiopi. Phil was always on hand to answer any questions we had, or advise us of the best restaurants. Anna was very efficient when we booked the studio and suggested the best transfer options and also booked us a taxi for our return to the airport, nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely recommend the Harbour House to anyone wanting to holiday in Kassiopi and we will be returning in the future.

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.

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!

- 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.
