Villa Blue Whale is a comfortable, spacious and completely privat house, directly on private beach, situated in the northcoast of the Ionian island Corfu. The house is well suited for 12 persons (14 with babies), has a large privat swimming pool and superb sunsets and views to the islands Erikousa and Mathraki and the coast of Albania.
"Villa Blue Whale" has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. A large kitchen, living area on the ground level with the swimming pool and large terraces overlooking the sea. A second living room with comfortable couches and fireplace and many more terraces around the house to sit and lounge in the sun. All situated in a large garden, with beautiful palm trees, olive trees, bougainvillea, cypresses and grassland.

From Hoddesdon, United Kingdom Aug 2015

We have all just returned from this 'stunning' villa, in fact the photos do not do it justice! It is even nicer! We had an amazing time and were looked after fantastically by 'Nicos' while we were there. The pool is so well kept and massive. The views were spectacular, living area massive and bedrooms all peaceful, clean and great AC. The only thing I would suggest is a toilet on the ground level but otherwise it was AMAZING, we all absolutely loved it. Would recommend a car as quite dark, little track to villa at night, although cab from sidari only about €8 at night. sidari is great fun at night and loads of great tavernas to choose from. The beach is shingle so wear some beach shoes and just enjoy the privacy of it.We would recommend this villa to everyone, thanks for lending it to us.

From Ski, Norway Jun 2013

My wife and me was 50 this year so we took all our kids, 6 of them (18 to 26year) with girl/and boy-riends on a two week holliday. Some have to live at The Wave hotel since the Blue Whale are for 10 adults.
The house was like a dream, with big space insede and outside.
Pam and Al, caretakers bought in drinks and breakfast since we landed late. We also had a big party with a lot of friends and had a 12 kg lamb on the big grill outside. Sitting there with the family and friends when we looked at the sunset was awesome. We can also highly recommend you try The Wave hotel resturan. Thet bill that is narrower and better than in Sidari. Charlos and Nikko with mom and dad helped us to buy the lamb and put it on the grill. Thank you Caroline for letting us rent your wonderful house.

From Wolverhampton, United Kingdom Sep 2010

The property is possibly in the best location around sidari. Although access is not brilliant for mini buses, as our driver found out, the secluded location makes it worth while. It is worth renting a vehicle to get to the supermarkets etc. The almost private beach is a real bonus and the water is great for kids as it is shallow for a long way out. We did not see anyone else on our beach all week. The pool at the villa is big and nearly 3mtrs deep at one end. A divider was fitted to stop the kids straying out of their depth. The garden is very secure and large enough for everyone to find their own space. Likewise the villa itself is very large and has plenty of room enough for 10 or 11 adults. The master bedroom on the 2nd floor is by far the best room. The only downside we found was the lack of a cooker with oven and there was only a normal sized fridge and freezer. The kithen was just about adequate for the numbers but could have had better facillities. There is a microwave/oven/grill but only small. On the upside the BBQ is brilliant. It is large and has an overhead powered rotisary. We cooked whole chickens to perfection. Sidari is a shortish 15 minute stroll but far enough away that you can not hear the noise at night. There are lots of resturants etc to choose from and the prices are very good, check out the mexican resturant i can reccomend it as cheap and loads of very good food. Our overall view of the proerty/holiday was very good and families with kids would not regret booking this palacial villa.

From Slough, United Kingdom Jun 2008

This property is exceptionally well situated and equipped and ideal for a holiday for a large family grouping. The views are terrific with outstanding sunsets each evening dipping down over the infinity pool. We have stayed at a number of places in Greece and around the Mediterranean and I would rate the Blue Whale Villa amongst the best of these. The Bosketo Restaurant just a short walk away complemented it well and is also strongly recommended. I would most certainly wish to go back and would fervently recommend this Villa to anyone looking for a super family holiday near, but not too near, to great facilities.

We have just returned from a lovely week in this splendid villa. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the facilities provided.
A place to return to.

I cannot recommend the Villa Blue Whale highly enough. Everything is just as it says it will be on the website and there were no unpleasant surprises or disappointments.
The villa is lovely, the pool superb, the privacy wonderful and, most magical of all, the views and sunsets are to die for.

Lily Gladstone sept 10 Dear Caroline I wanted to let you know what a fantastic stay we had at Blue Whale. The house was very comfortable and easy to live in and the setting is truly magical. We had a really happy time there with friends and family and everyone thought it was a very special place...( i forgot to write a note in the guest book - sorry!). Alastair and Pam and the cleaners were all very helpful and friendly and we became good friends with Christos and Nicos at the Wave....
