About J. McKenna

Having worked in the Travel Trade for over 25 years, - as a Rep in Corfu in the 1970's & then as a Manager in the longest established name in UK travel,it was always my dream to own a house on Corfu.

In 2003 we purchased a piece of land, and have now realized our dream by building 2 houses.

Over the years,we have stayed in many villas in Corfu, and my family and I are very aware of what is needed to make a villa holiday comfortable and enjoyable. We believe we have achieved this with villas Odyssey and Serendipity.

We have a fantastic support system in place,with our English House Managers & Cleaner - who have lived in Corfu for many years.

We provide 24 hour emergency support.We have also compiled a very comprehensive information file in each villa.

J. McKenna purchased this villa in 2010

Why J. McKenna chose Greece

When we were looking for land,we only considered the North East coast, as this is our favourite area.

I love all the villages and beaches, especially Nissaki.

It is peaceful, yet all the attractions of this coastline are easily accessible from our houses,& there are some great local restaurants.

We love to go into Corfu Town- for shopping,dinner,or just to have coffee or drinks.Especially in the evening - it's great to sit in 'Liston' & watch the world go by.

What makes this villa unique

The houses are within easy reach of all the local restaurants & supermarkets.Great watersports at Barbati Beach & local boat hire at Glyfa,Barbati & Nissaki.

There is a good bus service which runs along the coast road,& passes at the end of our lane,an easy way to get to either Corfu Town or Kassiopi in the North - for when you prefer not to drive.

Another day in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Villa Serendipity and the magic of waking up in such beautiful surroundings was just the same. We woke each day saying 'Another day in paradise----'. The villa is beautifully equipped and guests feel instantly at home. The open, sunny aspect to the downstairs living area enables everyone to socialise and relax. The villa is well maintained with housekeeper, gardener and pool man visiting twice a week. All the guests have to do is enjoy the wonderful pool and have fun.! I thoroughly recommend Serendipity and there's no doubt in my mind that ' I'll be back!!'.

Our 2016 trip to Villa Serendipity

  • 5 of 5

We initially choose the villa Serendipity for its location, easy to reach Corfu Town, close to the villages and beaches of the north east coast, fabulous views but only 50m from the main coast road. This villa ticks all these boxes. We would recommend hiring a car for visiting various taverna's and supermarkets located in the vicinity. There is an excellent fish taverna in walking distance.

The villa itself is exceedingly well equipped. The layout and facilities have been carefully though through which makes for a very relaxing holiday. The pool and surrounding terrace area with views across the bay and all day sunshine are hard to tear yourself away from.

The villa is well maintained and very clean, thanks to Denise, much appreciated.

The booking process via Janet was straight forward, all points were dealt with quickly.

I very much hope that we will be back there soon.

The Edmondson Family.

Wonderful, comfortable,relaxing and peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Serendipity 4 times. It is always beautifully clean, well maintained and very comfortable - we always find everything we need. The views are stunning. We feel that it has everything to offer for our family holiday as it is a peaceful retreat but within walking distance of a cafe (Crystal Blue) wonderful taverna (Taverna Glyfa) and idyllic beach. Everything further afield is easily accessible by car. The property is spacious and everyone can find their own place to relax and nothing is too much trouble for the staff who clean and maintain to an incredibly high standard.

Stunning in every way

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at the villa we entered the property and instantly fell in love with the villa, but as soon as we opened the doors leading to the pool we were completely blown away.

Beautiful infinity pool with sea and mountain views. Pool was also a great size to swim in.

The villa was spotless and furnished to a very high standard inside and out.

There is a bar at the end of the lane and an excellent restaurant 5 mins walk away. We also travelled further afield to eat and used taxi that it suggested in the villa pack. Agni Bay is amazing and well worth a visit. We went to Nikolas restaurant for Greek night. Vitamins restaurant is excellent and short distance away in the car.

There are many little mini markets dotted about which are short car journey and we called into Lidl on the way from the airport.

All through the booking process the owners couldn't have been more helpful and the villa manager and cleaner were lovely, very helpful and friendly.

This was bar far the best place I have ever been and I have been to Crete, Zante and Corfu in the past. I have also stayed in many villas and none had the views, accommodation and location of this villa.

Looking forward to another visit.

Idyllic home from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully presented, spacious villa. It felt like home the second we stepped inside. The owners have thought of everything including arranging our car hire and a lovely welcome pack with those essentials to tide you over til you get to the shops. The maintenance staff were really helpful and very friendly.

Close to a lovely quiet pebbly beach and lots of excellent restaurants nearby. Not too far less from the nearby town of Barbati for a bigger shop.

A great base location wise for exploring. We hired a car but my parents found public transport easy to use.

Great outside space with various options for dining and relaxing. Good space for when my brother and his young family popped round for a barbecue. My husband says it's the best barbecue he's ever used (which is a definite hats off coming from a new mad Australian!).

I would highly recommend a stay here.

Thank you Janet, your efforts have done you proud in such an amazing holiday villa. We hope to visit again soon.

5 star holiday!

  • 5 of 5

"Wow!" Was our first word when we walked into Serendipity, and we continued to say it every day during our holiday. A group of 3 couples celebrating a special birthday, we couldn't have found a more perfect location. Spotlessly clean, spacious, bright, airy and very we'll equipped - it is a real "home from home". With comfortable beds and muted furnishings accentuating the bay views, the owners have thought of every detail to ensure a relaxing stay. The beautiful infinity pool provided many opportunities to cool off while enjoying the fabulous uninterrupted view across the bay to Corfu Town.

When we dragged ourselves away from our haven we found fantastic local tavernas on nearby beaches, all serving great local food at reasonable prices - and always service with a smile. A week was definitely not long enough (a month would have been nice!) but we had to move on. We would recommend Serendipity to anyone - families, groups, couples - you really couldn't find a more perfect place to relax, unwind and soak up the sun. Well done and THANKYOU.

Car: recommended


There is a small beach- at Glyfa,approx 350 metres away, with steps to access.The houses are very close to Nissaki & Barbati & there are several other lovely beaches within a 10 minute walk & others within a 5 minute drive.Very convenient position for access to all amenities & all areas of Corfu.


Approx 23kms from Corfu Airport (30-35 mins drive). Car hire is strongly recommended.Barbati and Nissaki have all you need for a family holiday and the local mini market at Nissaki will deliver. A car will allow you to explore this beautiful island fully. Make sure you visit Venetian Corfu Town, a World Heritage Site, as an alternative to driving, you could always take a water taxi from Agni.

We can book either taxi or minibus transfers from the airport-just ask for details.


The villas are situated on the North East coast of Corfu.Their position makes them easily accessible to beaches on both sides of the island.Nissaki & Barbati are both just a short walk away. Kassiopi to the north is a lively resort with a beautiful harbour, and a good selection of bars and restaurants, and is approx 30 mins by car.Easy access to Corfu town.

Further Details:

The picturesque harbour of Nissaki is a 10 minute walk, with several beachside tavernas, and a small supermarket.An excellent beach for younger children. Nissaki village is a little further on, along the coast road and has a good supermarket/bakery and a few excellent tavernas.Barbati beach is a short distance in the opposite direction,& offers a long beach with watersports available.Self - Drive boat hire is available at Glyfa & Nissaki.
