Friends recommended Kaminaki as they'd had a good week there in June. We were delighted with the village, the property, and Corfiot people, who are some of the friendliest hosts we've encountered. We did think, though, that we'd have enjoyed it much less without a car: the landscape is extremely hilly and the weather was very hot, despite it being the middle of September. Kaminaki is a quiet little suburb of Nisaki, a larger village along the main road with two grocery shops (including the redoubtable Aphrodite's - a must-visit) and a wonderful taverna called Vitamines - many thanks to Dina and Vasilis. Much of the property in Kaminaki is let to tourists during the summer season but the village is so small it wasn't ever noisy.. There is no shop in Kaminaki itself, despite what some guide books say - it closed down some time ago. There are two tavernas, Spiros (which looks good but we didn't eat there) and the Rocks Taverna, with spectacular views. The beach is small and not at all crowded, though people who want a quiet swim do drive to Kaminaki but I found the shingle (stones) just as challenging as those of my home town of Brighton. The most exciting thing we did in Kaminaki was to hire a speedboat from Cassie and Dimitri who operate from the beach.The accommodation was very good, a reasonably-priced maisonette on two floors with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fully-fitted kitchen. While modernised some time ago, the apartment was very well equipped, and was kept spotlessly clean by Maria, and the water supply was good. Any problems that arose - light bulbs gone, etc. - were quickly dealt with by EOS. Do be sure to ask in advance for a mattress topper for the double bed. The only niggle is that the Wifi service is erratic so there were times we couldn't make calls. Altogether, a splendid holiday!
Koutsounada House is absolutely lovely. The tasteful and restrained decor is elegant, casual and comfortable. The house is very well equipped and oriented toward a beautiful swimming pool set between old olive trees. While it is not right on the ocean, the beautiful cove and tavernas are only a 3 minute walk. We very much enjoyed the quiet retreat after a day of sight seeing. We would definitely return and recommend it to friends.
