Interaction with Guests
Unfortunately I live far away from the house... in Athens. That means that I manage the whole thing via e-mail and calls and with the precious help of my neighbors Klodi (great handyman and driver), Spiros (gardener) and Aghathi (who takes general care of the house). We will be in contact for everything you are going to need. All these people live close enough to the house and they are ready to help you!
There is a bus stop on the main street exactly in front of the house! The timetable is written on a panel at the bus stop. With this bus you can go to the center of Acharavi, to Roda and to the main center of Corfu city!
The price is 3.60 euros and you can see the exact timetable here: (You check the CORFU-RODA-ACHARAVI) panel.

-Please wash your feet after the beach outside the house at the faucet. Dont bring the sand in the shower, it causes damage to the shower tubes very easily!
- Please read the "welcome notebook" with the safety infos and the house rules!
After a bit of confusion when we first arrived at the house( I hadn't picked up my emails)we spent 3 comfortable nights at Anastaisa's lovely house.
There was lots of useful information about the house and local places to visit.
If we had been there longer, I think we would have made more use of the outside garden. Seemed to get used to the traffic noise quite quickly, even though these things usually bother me.
Thank you for your prompt communications Anastasia, etc!
We stayed at Anastasia's Handmade house for 6 days and we were amazed by the creativity and the cuteness of this place. The house as well as the yard are very well managed.
We stayed there with our dog and enjoyed the proximity of the sea and the long walks on the beach.
Nos avons passé un super jour dans cette merveilleuse maison très fonctionnelle, un grand merci pour la bouteille d'eau, le miel, l'huile d'olive et les œufs.
Un énorme merci à notre hôte pour sa disponibilité et également à sa maman pour son invitation à souper et pour sa gentillesse et les petits cadeaux qu'elle nous a fait, c'est un endroit magique proche de tout, mais au calme, la maison est vraiment comme elle est décrite, et très agréable, la taverne mythos, un vrai régal ...
Nous avons hâte de revenir , merci anastasia
Casa molto comoda ed accogliente. Ha tutto l'occorrente per la cucina,e quindi fare un ottimo soggiorno. Molto pulita. La casa è autonoma e circamdata da un piccolo terreno...con giardino. A circa chilometro da Achavari dove poter trovare tutto cio di cui si può avere bisogno. SuperMarket, Rent car, Rent motorbike...ecc...
Un bon rapport qualité prix pour cette maison situé à coté de la mer.
We had a wonderful time in Anastasia's house. It's close to the sea and the neighbour is a simple but very nice taverna (Mythos). It's a good place to start and drive to other beatiful spots and beaches. It's away from the big tourist spots but close enough to go there if you like it. The house isn't too warm during night. The road is a bit busy but didn't bother us. We really relaxed in the hammocks in the garden. Anastasia doesn't live on the island but is very quick in answering questions. Thanks to the good wifi in the house the communication is easy. A place to return! Thanks Anastasia.

About the Host, Anastasia
I live and work in Athens.The "handmade" house in Acharavy belongs to my parents. I used to spent my summers there as a child so I realy care about that place. Now it's empty the major part of the year so I thought about giving it a little bit of life again!
