I had a lovely stay at Desfa's place. Theodore and Lula are perfect hosts. They respect your privacy but also are there to help you if you need it. The house was great.The rooms had everything I needed. I can't understand why anyone could complain? The price is fair and it is a home not a hotel. The surroundings were peaceful and tranquil. The bus stop is only a ten minute walk up the hill and the Pelekas village the same after that. You can also hire a scooter or car and the host will assist you with local information about that. Theodore and Lula are very kind and really helped with information and contact numbers and a beautiful Greek meal !! I chose to walk everywhere and that's not for everybody. The beaches are fantastic and easy by car/scooter. The walk is a little more challenging so wear decent walking shoes/trainers take a beach bag with your flip flops & water in that and you'll be fine. From the bus stop, turning point go down the hill, there is a small supermarket, take the right side at the Yaliskayi beach sign down the hill on the way to that great beach. I also walked to Glyfada beach. It was a long walk but a great beach. You can get the bus into Corfu Town easily which takes about half an hour. The shops are great and it's busy during the week. I went to Faliraki area on my last day for a swim stop. It was lovely. There are many connections at the bus square to other towns as well as the airport. There is also the new main bus terminal near the airport for bigger trips. You can explore or do as little as you want. This part of Corfu is near the mountains so take a tiny umbrella and plenty of sunscreen. You get a lot of sun some hot rain mixed in with some wonderful electric weather displays some times (Sep).

Desfa's place is a little Paradise! It is a little hide-away with a beautiful garden, and just a 5 min ride away from the cute village "Pelekas" where you can find many lovely restaurants. It's also close to some of Corfu's most beautiful (little) beaches. We saw different parts of the Island and Pelekas was defiantly our favorite! Why? Because of the mountains, the sweet smell of the forest and the beaches "Yaliskari" and "Myrtiotissa" - if you you immidiately know why! Having Desfa as a host really adds to the experience! He goes above and beyond for you and after you stayed with him you made a new friend! He picks you up from the AirPort and gives you a little tour so you're able to oriëntale - which was a great help! Desfa; thank you for making our stay unforgettable!!

We were one week in the apartment and everything was fine! Desfa was very kind to pick us from the airport. The house is located in the very nice place few minutes away from Pelekas. The village is beautiful with a lot of nice places to eat. There is a very good beach ca. 30-40 minutes walk from the apartment. There is no bus connection to the beach, but it was a good exercise for us to go there by feet, especially when the landscape around is so beautiful. But you can also rent a car or scooter. The apartment was good, the shower and toilet were not very comfortable, but for this price it's ok. Everything else was fine. We enjoyed our vacation there very much!

We had a very nice staying at Desfa's place. The house is really nice, calm and surrounded by trees and nature. We really enjoyed breakfast in the terrace and Desfa’s mother, who lives in another apartment on the top floor, sometimes gave us walnuts and pomegranates from her garden. Desfa was helpful and available and gave us useful advice. If you want to spend a nice holiday in Corfu in a quite place, we strongly recommend to go there. The house is big, simply decorated but all basic comforts are there. We appreciated having a private bathroom in our room. Moreover, Pelekas village has good restaurants and a close nice beach. Very good quality for the price we spent! Thank you Desfa!

Desfa`s place and the location exceeded my expectation! Its a beautiful, peaceful place and both Desfa and his mother are very kind and friendly. The house/ room was spotless and safe for a little child. The beach and village are accessible by walk and the views are stunning! We`ve loved the place and hope to return soon!

Had a week here, the first week of a fortnights stay on Corfu. Communication was good, and Theo (Desfa) picked us up from the airport. When we arrived we were delighted, the room backed onto a balcony that overlooked the sloping gardens. Pelikas sits on a hill, a mile or so from the beaches, and felt much less touristy than many places on the island. There are basic cooking facilities that work just fine, likewise the showering/sleeping arrangements. It is a short uphill walk into the village, where most things can be obtained, and there are some really good bars (like Jimmys!).Theo is an accomplished musician, and invited us to a couple of gigs in the village, the second of which seemed to involve a couple of hundred locals. We felt very lucky to have been there on that night and appreciated the invite. Theos mum runs an interesting museum of local costume on the floor above the flat, and is very informative. Theo put us in touch with the local scooter rental firm. We are very glad we did this, as in mid July, it got too hot to walk any distance for us north europeans...cost was 18E per day. So thanks theo, had a really good time, if theres one consideration I would suggest to others, it would be to check the temperature when you intend coming.... we had planned a walking holiday, but it was a bit too hot for strenuous activities. The swimming was good however! Loved the place.
