“Amazing villa with breathtaking views!”
Reviewed 1 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a great stay here the villa was spotless and had everything we needed.. Sue met us at the bottom of the mountain and we followed her up to the villa where she showed us around and told us about everything we needed to know and we could contact her if we needed to. I would highly recommend this villa, the only downfall was the drive up the mountain.. If your not a confident driver and don't like heights then it's not for you !!

“A wonderfully located villa with superb views”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed for 5 nights in Pelican's house. The villa was very spacious and had everything you could imagine. We even found binoculars to look more closely at the view, a foot pump for blowing the lilo up. There was an enormous welcome grocery pack, which was very thoughtful.
The pool was kept clean twice during our 5 night stay. Sue met us at the main road and we followed her to the villa which we wouldn't have found ourselves. The villa is located approximately 10 minutes up mountain S bends, but as long as you drive slowly and carefully, was not a problem.
The views over Nidri were to die for, everyday the views seemed to change with the shadows and boats in the harbour.
The bed and pillows were just so comfortable [ apart from my own bed]. All the reviews in the guest book were positive.
We arrived during a 2 day storm and the internet in the villa had been hit, but the same day, Sue organised Chip to come and put a new router in, very impressive service.
The booking via Verity, was easy efficient and kept in touch by email prior to arriving.

I would recommend this villa for anyone looking for a very quiet location [we love peace and quiet at night]. We were able to drive down to Nidri quite easily at night with our hire car, to the many vast choices of shops and restaurants. We hired a boat from Trident for the day and went around all of the islands you can see from the villa. Nidri waterfalls is quite close by and that was a wonderful couple of hours out.
We drove around the island to the west coat to visit the beaches.

A supeb villa, location and holiday. We split our holiday between Corfu and Lefkada and the driving instructions sent by Verity were spot on. We had a lovely drive [albeit in the rain and storms] and stopped off at Parga on the mainland.

“Perfection !”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Pelicans house is an amazing little property perched in a gorgeous mountain valley. The grounds are beautifully tended to. The real value of this place is the privacy and tranquil environment. If you're looking for hectic social scene, this is not the place for you. But if you're looking to relax, enjoy your own pool,terrace with amazing panoramic views and soak in the sun, then you will not be disappointed. Pelican house is newer villa, and the interior construction and decoration is excellent. Ample rooms, nice and cool, very tastefully done. We will definitely come back to Pelicans House next year!
P.S. It was our third time in Lefkada and this was the best accommodation so far.

“2nd Stay at Pelican”
Reviewed 7 May 2016 for a stay in July 2015

This was our 2nd stay and hopefully won't be our last! We have visited the island every year for the last 4 years and having visited twice in a couple of those years. This is by far the best accomodation we have stayed at hence why we returned a second time.... Say no more! It's also very close to Demitris restaurant which is our favourite restaurant on the island coming in just ahead of Elana and Seaside which are both near Geni across the bay from Nidri town itself. Sue was very helpful during our stay as was Verity and Chris in making all the arrangements. Really was another 5 star holiday and it was thinking and planning our visit in June this year which reminded me I hadnt left a review last year when I found that the Pelican was booked for our June dates damn!!

“See it, dream it, believe it!”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in July 2015

A long overdue review for one of the most magical places we have stayed.
Booked for a week's mini-moon, it really lived up to expectations - wonderfully planned/built/decorated, tranquil/relaxing position and extraordinary views.

Lefkada really is a beautiful island to explore - with stunning beaches and lovely restaurants (my wife was crazy about the tzatziki at Dimitri's down the road).

The reviews are all accurate, don't worry about the road up, couple of bumps and you'll soon be driving like the locals. It is 10 mins from Nidri, but that's what affords such great views and a peaceful setting.

“Absolutly Fabulous”
Reviewed 27 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My partner and myself stayed here in september the views from the villa are absolutly fab as in the photos.The road to the villa was okay, from some of the reviews we were expecting something more extreme. Chris and Verity were very helpful when booking as was Sue when we arrived and greeted us with an excellent welcome pack on arrival.
We would highly recomend Pelicans House and would certainly come back again Soooon!

“Beautiful house, w/ the best view on the island”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Absolutely amazing house. Stunning view on Scorpio, Meganisi and many other islands.
Especially from upstairs, even from the bathroom..:-))...! Looks just like on pictures.
Cozy & spacious, with small but very nice pool, in quiet location, well equipped with everything, and super clean. Less than 10 min drive from Nidri, through a bit steep road but managable by normal, compact car.
Sue was very helpful, she suprised us with little necessities shopping for first evening (thank you again, Sue!). Wifi signal at times was weak, but it was not a big deal.
Generally, wonderful vacation. Lefkada truly is wonderful, with beautiful beaches, great windsurfing , and just to relax. Highly recommend, both the island and the Pelican's House.
