The White House holiday experience features waterfront properties centred on the famous White House at Kalami Bay on the Greek island of Corfu. At the Atheneos family we have been providing privately-owned quality holiday accommodation at Kalami for more than twenty years. All our properties overlook Kalami Bay and are a step away from the beach. They are perfectly positioned on the edge of the bay, sitting comfortably on the rocky Kalami coastline, surrounded by ancient olive groves. We are near Kalami village, so guests can enjoy all resort amenities, the White House Restaurant and other village tavernas as well as priority rental at the White House Boats.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The White House Apartments. We swam in the pool a couple of times a day, appreciated the quietness of the area and had a wonderful dinner at the restaurant.

The bed linen, towels and apartment was in good condition. The washing machine really came in handy, as did the air conditioning because it was uncomfortably hot during our stay.

Tasos was able to give us a late checkout which we were very grateful for because our ferry didn’t leave until late in the evening.

Beautiful location, romantic venue to impress and good quality well presented dishes served by generally attentive staff but when booked up it can be harder to get service. With all of this going for this restaurant
WHY is the background music a jumble of naff mix of Greek radio pop music??? It completely jars with the sublime romantic setting and distracts from relaxing vibe. It does not make one want to linger over a fine meal
YouTube has plenty of chilled out grooves or themes to choose from or even Spotify. It needs fixing please

Far too expensive for what you get. The setting is beautiful, the food is good, the service just correct. The prices too high. We ate in various high market restaurants and the relationship quality- price was much better. I believe that you pay the Lawrence romanticism, which is not really tangible

I had one of the worst ever meals here. Starters were ok but the main courses were dire. I had bourdetto, a corfiot speciality - it consisted of one shrivelled up piece of white fish in a deep bowl surrounded by an intensely salty spicy tomato sauce which closely resembled a bad version of heinz tomato soup. I had the same dish a day beforehand in Toula’s in Agni and it was divine. Not so the version at The White House. My son’s orzo with prawns was also dry and tasteless. The servers all go around with earphones but do not seem to communicate with each other. We had to wait an hour and a half for our main courses to arrive. Overall a very disappointing experience. The manager removed our main courses from the bill. I felt it was the least she could do in the circumstances.

I found the staff distant and unwelcoming, I felt uncomfortable as a result, whilst the food was pretentiously overpriced. I eat in many expensive restaurants and hotels and have never felt this way before. I felt it was a cynical take on the ‘Durrells’ popularity;it could have so easily have been a good positive experience. As a luxury lifestyle magazine editor, it has proved a feature I no longer intend to write

We decided to revisit the White House on our most recent visit after our previous time in Corfu during post lockdown.
This was only to be a an aperitif before moving on to a reservation elsewhere , but with the intention of reserving a table for dinner in the next few days .
Thank goodness we did !!
The welcome was at best cool , our request for a napkin to wipe our wet seats was reacted with disdain .
Our drinks order was taken with reluctance . The two drinks we ordered - a small beer & a aperol spritz that turned out to be the most expensive ‘like for like ‘ bill we had since arriving in Corfu .
Unfortunately, the aperol spritz was flat, so when I paid the bill , I mentioned this & although not wanting or requesting a discount & paying in full . I thought I should let them know - only to be greeted with the most unprofessional & rude reaction from both the “manageress” & the male bar manager .
I had heard mixed reviews of this place , but so wanted to visit it for its location & history .
Such a shame , but I do hope they look into this review & take on board the comments .

Just returned from our sixth visit to Kalami staying at the White House complex, this time at the White House Apartment. We had a wonderful stay as always and enjoyed our comfortable apartment with its wonderful views, the food at the White House, the boat hire, the close proximity to the beach and other Kalami tavernas and shops and the friendly, kind and helpful service we received at all times from all the staff. It’s always hard to get a booking and you have to plan at least a year ahead and we know why. Thank you so much.

Such a beautiful spot. And a real effort has been made with the outdoor area with plants and lovely seating (although the beanbags were so grubby looking) So it was SO disappointing that the service was so poor. We sat for over 20 minutes with only three other sets of customers and the guy that came over said he couldn’t serve us ? But would get someone that could. We only wanted drinks and snacks so not complicated. In the end the children were bored waiting I went in to the bar to try and order and there were at least SIX staff milling about 2 of whom says they would get someone over. They finally delivered the drinks and snacks and then someone came to try and lay the table all nicely AFTER we had the food. Crazy. Missing such an opportunity. It’s the only reason you would go to Kalami.

The place is absolutly stunning! You can swim between two dishes can't beat that! We went there for a late lunch without booking (recommended for dinner). The staff was friendly enough. The food, a lot of fish is very fresh and very good a bit of "modern" presentation. It's a bit more expensive than the others places but with a so beautiful surrounding it's expected. However wine prices are a bit mad! But will be back.

Food is off the charts here. A modern take on Greek cuisine. Best fish we have had in years, cooked to perfection. We had the apricot and chocolate desserts, they were delicious and indulgent.
Friendly staff, who cannot do enough, chilled atmosphere. Beautiful spot to watch the world go by and chill with a drink after lunch on loungers, then a dip in the sea.
