My sister and I are frequent visitors to Kalami and have stayed in a number of properties over the years. We saw The Olive House when it was a derelict house and when we saw that it had been sympathetically renovated we just had to stay there. Wow what a difference. We stayed in the 1st floor apartment. It was just perfect for our week. The décor is very tasteful and the kitchen was more than adequately stocked. The views from the 3 balconies are just gorgeous, particularly when the sun is rising in the mornings. I would highly recommend staying at The Olive House.
This holiday venue is as good as it gets for two people wanting complete solace from their lives at home. the standard of décor and living arrangements are second to none. If anyone wants a better recommendation in the Mediterranean please contact me, as I know of none having spent my holidays in many villas on the coast of the Med.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Olive House in June (Ground floor). It's a beautifully furnished apartment, well set out and with lovely views over the bay - it was super to be able to lie in bed in the morning and see the cruise ships crossing the bay! The location is superb - a short walk through the nearby bar directly onto the beach, and immediately opposite a well stocked mini-market. It's directly on the only road through the village but traffic is very light so that's not a problem. The ground floor apartment has the advantage of a lovely terrace area with comfortable seating and a discrete dining area - although this could do with some added shade from the midday sun. It's a short walk to several tavernas - we particularly liked Tomas's Place, both for the food and the friendly welcome. I must add that the local contact, Angelicki, was lovely and very helpful.
(Jo, if you send me your email address there are some further points I could make)
Many thanks for the opportunity to stay for 2 weeks in your home.
We had a fantastic, relaxing time. We ALL enjoying the home luxuries in the house which is set in a perfect location making it very easy to nip to the beach and enjoy a swim or a relaxing drink in Thomas's Tavern!
As always.... Kalami met all our expectation....but your lovely home exceeded ours..

Our second visit to Kalami which we loved for its peace and quiet, stunning scenery, facilities and wide selection of good quality local tavernas. Having previously stayed at San Antonio Hotel we were looking for a high standard villa close to the water and in the village to avoid the frustratingly steep slopes at the Hotel and much of the other rental accommodation on the outskirts of the village. We noted the Olive house at our last visit and were lucky enough to book it for this year.
The accommodation is exactly as advertised / expected
- well kept equipped and maintained
- fab location
- friendly and helpful owner and local contact - Angeliki in sunshine travel was really helpful
What exceeded expectations
- terrace overlooking the beach was just great for evening glass of local wine at 3 euros a bottle
- supermarket was literally 10 yards from the door and had everything required for e entire holiday - even managed to buy fresh croissants and baklava as well as daily fantastically fresh squid and sea bream to cook at villa. Don't be put off by proximity to supermarket as it is small and quiet just like Kalami and the villa itself is very quiet
- well renovated villa that has the modern edge whilst retaining character
- so close to beach and tavernas
- so peaceful and relaxing
- opening the shutters in the morning to let in the sun and the stunning sea view form the bed!
We enjoyed boat trips to nearby bays and tavernas, hiring speed boat, boat trip to Corfu town, the fun of aqua land for the kids, local water sports, and wonderful swimming at the beach.
Needless to say we have rebooked and would whole heartedly recommend the Olive House
Totally refurbished apt with all new appliances and furniture.
In great central location with views across the stunning bay of Kalami. Spotlessly clean. Good outside space. WIFI and air con all works well. 3 tavernas and 3 bars within short walking distance. Good selection of restaurants via free boat transfer (Agni bay) or bus up the hill (Dimitris). Kassiopi for somewhere different is only around 15mins drive away.
Will definitely book again.
