Waterfront Villa On Kaminaki Beach, Corfu

Overview

Property

Updated: 17-Sep-2016
"Yellow House Upper", Villa in Kaminaki, Corfu, Greek Islands, Greece - Waterfront Villa On Kaminaki Beach

Yellow Upper has a balcony running along the sea front and a covered terrace to the side and rear for private luncheons and al fresco dinners. Colourful flowers and pretty pots decorate the naturally paved exterior whilst the leisurely holiday flair could be made even more so with the addition of a cook service even though the villa is close to a beach-front taverna for a taste of local cooking. Naturally polished wooden floors and white wooden ceilings tell of a loved history with modern comforts that will make your stay a dreamy reality. Yellow Upper has an indoor seating area upon entering, three bedrooms and two bathrooms and can be booked in conjunction with Yellow Lower for larger parties that benefit from independence and privacy. Yellow Upper is accessed via the rear side of the house and up a few stone steps with its own wooden gate. Whilst a car could be of service for trips further afield Yellow House is the ideal place to enjoy without being motivated to move much and the hire of a private boat can make any shopping trip a pleasure rather than a chore.

Perfect Position in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Yellow House is RIGHT on the beach. If you visit, as we do, in the 'low' season, end of May/beginning of June, you basically have a private beach with a few other couples pleasantly spaced out over the whole thing. The proximity of the sea & the stunning views from the beautiful terrace are two of the joys of renting The Yellow House Upper.

The apartment itself is clean & well equipped. Not super luxurious but a comfortable & pleasant place to stay. The owners are incredibly helpful & lovely people. The overall ambience is one of relaxed friendliness & tranquillity.

Other parts of Corfu are hectic & Kaminaki feels like a hidden jewel. We have been staying here for six years now, every year we consider an alternative but nothing has this combination of simplicity & beauty. The house, consisting of the two apartments (Upper & Lower) can be taken in its entirety, but we have only ever rented the Upper part. While other people have been below us, we were not over-aware of their presence. So no problem there. (However they were not a noisy family with a crying baby, which might have more of an impact!!)

We tend to eat out at local tavernas, but the kitchen is clean & well equipped for all basic cooking needs. We always have a salad lunch on the shaded terrace. So easy to pop up from the beach, have a gentle lunch & siesta, then wander back down to soak up a few more rays.

A car is a must for getting up the very steep hill to the main road & going off to discover more little bays on the coast near Kassiopi. Parking is on the one track road & a small car is a good idea!

There are two tavernas in Kaminaki itself but loads more in St Stephano & Agni and other little bays along the coast. I'd highly recommend Toula's, the Agni Taverna, in Agni & Eucalyptus in St Stephano (which has lots more).

I booked the Yellow House Lower for my sister & her husband, both of whom adored it. He paints & she loves simply sitting watching the swallows swooping over the blue Ionian Sea.

All in all, it's a fabulous place to spend a week or two. Comfortable, clean & in the most idyllic spot.

Chill out!

  • 5 of 5

This is beautiful villa, and arguably the best location in Kaminaki. The service from Chritina was outstanding, from the ease of booking, confirmation and payment,to the smooth and efficient transfers to and from the airport. The outside living on the terrace was very relaxing and comfortable. You can also get provisions from the local supermarket delivered to your door! I have no hesitation in recommending the villa. It is one of the best we have stayed at, and the price was very reasonable, considering the quality of accomadation.

Location

From the Owner

Yellow House upper has a unique location right on the beach. It is actually one of the few real beach houses left on the island. The carpentry skill of the Katsaros grandfather that expertly created some of the furniture and wooden surfaces and the modern eye for comfort and style of the youngest generation that today manages Kaminaki Villas Corfu makes any of our villas a quality guarantee.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Yellow House is literally on the waterfront of Kaminaki Beach. Kaminaki is a beach side hamlet comprised of a few dozen dwellings some of which like Yellow House are over a century old.

The pebble beach looks out across the blue-green waters of the Ionian Sea to the Greek mainland and Corfu Town in the distance and the south beyond.The sea is exceptionally clean and the atmosphere warm and friendly. Kaminaki is accessible by car down a steep road leading off from the main coast road.

Travel:

Whilst a car could be of service for trips further afield Yellow House is the ideal place to enjoy without being motivated to move much and the hire of a private boat can make any shopping trip a pleasure rather than a chore.

Further Details:

THE NORTH EAST COAST

The North East Coast of Corfu Island is famous for its graphic beauty created by the ever green slopes of Mount Pandokratoras sliding steeply into the blue green waters of the Ionian Sea. Dozens of small coves and inlets are sprinkled all along the coast from Barbati Beach in the south to the historical town of Kassiopi in the north.

Shiny white pebbles decorate most beaches on the north east coast with crystal clear waters offering endless hours of swimming delight. Beach front tavernas like on Agni Beach being the most visited for its three well known restaurants or Avlaki Beach further north are a haven for endless hours of culinary sea gazing pleasure.

Many private luxury villas are nestled among the olive groves such as the likes of the Rothschild Estate on Kerassia Beach headland and the famous White House inhabited by Gerald Durrell, author of My Family and other Animals, as a young child in Kalami.Yellow House and Bijou areKaminakiVillas that have been a landmark for photographers and artists for nearly a century.

A fairytale like footpath outlines nearly the entire north east coast from Nissaki to St Stephanos, two of the most photographed fishing villages in the area. Walking this well-known footpath is great fun but it’s the freedom of discovering one’s very own private cove and witnessing the beauty of this Mediterranean coast line by sea that is the real attraction in this part of Corfu Island. Boat Hire from Kaminaki Beach is easy. In fact hiring a boat will come in more handy than hiring a car.
