If you are looking for some peace and quiet then Yellow House Upper is perfection. Unbeatable location (although we would recommend hiring a car in order to explore local restaurants in the evening). We loved being able to roll out of bed and onto the beach and then back again to make some lunch. Hiring a boat is a great way to the see the island if you fancy a day out. Christina is an excellent host and the house was very well equipped for all of our needs. We would love to come back!
The Lovely Yellow House in Kaminaki
For my 50th birthday we treated ourselves to a week in the top of The Yellow House in Kaminaki. We usually stay in more basic accommodation at Kaminaki, traveling on a shoestring, and it was wonderful staying somewhere more comfortable and spacious for a change. There are so many reasons that Yellow House Upper is a good choice for a family of 6 – here are a few:
– located right on the beach with beautiful views and no climb
– total privacy on the upper level beneath the Wisteria canopy
– private parking space
– gorgeous interior decor including a glamorous shower room
– Christina and her lovely family living nearby, always helpful and welcoming.
The only problem with this villa is that having stayed there I do not want to return to the more basic accommodation that we usually stay in! Thank you Christina for a wonderful holiday 🙂
Best Villa in Kaminaki
Let me start by saying that I have been traveling to Corfu for 20 years and my wife has been coming here since she was 5 years old. We always stay in the area of Kaminaki or Nissaki along the NE coast.
The Yellow House Upper was the most comfortable and well appointed villa where we have stayed. It has recently been renovated to a very high standard. The spa-like bathroom was luxurious by Corfu standards. The kitchen was well equipped and Christina (owner) also provided a welcome package of food & drink. Most notably for me however was the comfort of the beds. Typical Corfu mattresses are very thin and uncomfortable. The double bed had a thick mattress pad that was very comfortable as compared to others we have used.
Location is ideal for this property. It is directly on Kaminaki Beach with unobstructed views of the sea. There is also a private parking space which is a premium in Kaminaki.
We only experienced one issue which was quickly resolved. Upon arrival, we found that the AC unit had failed. Christina was very apologetic and arranged a replacement the next day. In the interim, she provided fans for each of the rooms (although not really needed given the time of year). I greatly appreciated her responsiveness and genuine concern for our comfort.
Overall this is a fantastic villa with excellent service from the local owners. We are looking forward to staying with Kaminaki Villas again in the future!
Yellow House Upper
We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Kaminaki staying at this beautiful old house. It has been tastefully updated to include all mod cons but still retains character and some wonderful original features. Its central location is also ideal for two local tavernas which are less than two minutes walk away.
We particularly loved the outside space and shaded terrace of the upper house with its fantastic views over the bay towards the mainland. It was a joy just to sit there and listen to the sound of the sea with a chilled drink in hand! You can really make this sort of holiday as restful and relaxing or as energetic as you want it to be depending on your preference. For us it was rest and relaxation!
Christina and her family were close on hand if needed but never intrusive and quickly sorted out a few very minor issues when we contacted them. All in all, we would have no hesitation in recommending this property for a holiday in this very pretty part of Corfu.
Right at end of the beach
Good size patio area with two loungers and two upright chairs and wooden table to eat on
As you are so close to the beach we found it not necessary to pay for a sun lounger on the beach, just return to the property as it’s so close by and soak up the sun there
Recommend beach/aqua shoes as the shoreline in pebbles and they help
Water was very clear and good for snorkelling
Best place to stay in Corfu
We stayed in the Upper Yellow House in August 2016 – it is right on the beach in Kaminaki and so has a wonderful position. The interior of the house is well fitted with everything you need and there is a big outside patio area for dining. All in a great place to stay – we have booked for 2017 already.
A Very Special Place, a ‘nearly’ hidden secret.
A great place to be out of it, but close enough to some of the best tavernas, most beautiful bays, quiet days and the beach – just feet away.
The accomadation is well maintained, comfortable and has all you need.
The owners, close, very nice and not intrusive.
We will return to this ‘very special place,
We loved staying at Yellow House Upper. The Owner and her parents were so welcoming
And very helpful and kind to us during our week. The villa is spotlessly clean. Very well turned out and a joy to stay in. Kaminaki itself is a joy. A lovely beach and Taverna right on the sea
The delight of Yellow House Lower and Upper in Kaminaki, Corfu.
Kaminaki a small beautiful village off the beaten track and yet close to shops and a number of great Tavernas. Yellow House Upper and Lower is in a fantastic location, right on the beach. It is beautifully and tastefully appointed and is a wonderful place for a relaxing and restorative holiday. The owners, the Katsarou family, are very welcoming and attentive to the needs of their guests. In short this is a wonderful place to have a holiday.
We were very impressed from the moment the taxi Christina arranged, collected us from the airport and delivered us to the Upper Yellow House, which sits right on the gorgeous sea at Kaminaki. Beautiful decor with a well equipped kitchen containing a welcome hamper, meant we didn’t immediately need to go shopping, When we did, the owners from Aphrodites supermarket picked us up and dropped us home with delicious Greek food. My daughter still talks about how the hummus was made in front of her! We didn’t hire a car, preferring instead to rent a boat from Kaminaki Boats in the cove, which enabled us to explore different villages and tavernas along the coastline. When we wanted to stay closer to home we ate at the friendly Spiros taverna next door. A truly wonderful and relaxing holiday, which had everything we needed for two teenagers and two over worked parents. Christina was incredibly accommodating and efficient from the moment we enquired about booking until we had to sadly say goodbye. We really hope we will be back in the near future!
