It is probably the cleanest private accommodation I have ever been to. The cleaning lady pretty much cleaned every day.
We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor and I have nothing but praise for its functionality, size and location. Although you are a stone throw away from the beach, it is peaceful, private and tucked in some lush greenery and beautiful garden flowers.
Easily accessible from the car, which makes a big difference if you travel as a family with a lot of luggage.
The Kontogialos beach is very quiet in the morning, but in the afternoon it gets very busy later on and if you by any chance leave the location by car, don't come back till late in the evening until all the beach goers have left, otherwise you will barely be able to come down the steep, curvy, narrow road that leads to the beach. Plus you will probably not be able to find parking.
Other than the access road, the only two other issues with the apartments are no mosquito net on the windows (and they know it so they are ruthless) and the weak internet signal. The owner told me she invested in improving the situation but apparently the area blocks the wifi signal.
It is also close to Kerkyra, but poorly linked to the rest of the island, particularly to the opposite side. For most outbound trips you need to drive to the city and than find the road to your destination south and north.
Oh and yes - a mini market in closer vicinity would be an asset, the closest one is pretty long walk uphill.
