  • Stunning contemporary house
  • Beautiful sea views
  • Glorious top floor master suite
  • Walking distance to Kaminaki

Winding up a small footpath by the coast just a stone’s throw from the delightful bay of Kaminaki brings you to an extraordinary house perched on the hillside with stunning views across the bay. This house is a result of one Greek couple’s dedication over a period of six years to build their ‘dream’ home.

Bright, light and contemporary with comfortable open living spaces, clean lines and a state-of-the-art kitchen, The Light House manages to combine a degree of sophistication with a truly relaxing ambience. Built on three floors, the master suite on the top floor has its own private spacious terrace, whilst the infinity swimming pool with its magnificent views and cleverly designed porthole features will surely captivate.

This exceptional property is a haven for both families and couples who require privacy and yet are still just a short walk down the coastal path to picturesque Kaminaki, a quiet and understated fishing village with its two tavernas and white pebbled beach. Small motor boats and water sports are also available nearby whilst for the more energetic, a tennis court awaits, just a 15-minute stroll along the coastal path.

Mrs Rosemary Elizabeth Matheson, May 2024

After many visits to Nissaki over 15 years, we’ve finally made it to The Light House. And what a treat – our favourite trip of all. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with its amazing views over Kaminaki. We’ve loved staying in the village. Such an idyllic and quiet beach and the perfect hub for coastal walks to Kalami and Porta. Whether enjoying 6am moonlight swims in the pool, or lounging on the lilo, we’ve loved spending time around the pool – such a private and relaxing space where you can watch the world go by. The walks up and down the hill have burned a few calories, which is just as well considering our nightly trips to Vitamins! Delicious dinners as ever! A perfect couple of weeks. We have been so lucky with the weather – wall-to-wall sunshine throughout. Already planning our next visit.

David and Lindsey, October 2023

Back again after 10 years to this amazing villa and it hasn’t disappointed. The villa and view remain amazing in a lovely, peaceful setting. Recommendations for food are Vitamins (great hosts), Agni Taverna, a short walk to Yiannis Taverna and Kristo and Anna at Thalassa in the village. Feeling fatter but fitter from the food and the numerous steps to the villa, but very chilled and refreshed after an amazing holiday. Would love to come back but better not leave it another 10 years or the steps may get the better of us!

Chris, Bridget, Mark and Gillian, September 2023

Beautiful location and views. Property very well presented but be prepared for the number of steps up to the property.

Nicola Casey, July 2023

Another wonderful family holiday with Simpson travel, who we have found make everything so easy and enjoyable. Staying in the Light House felt like such a privilege, the villa is stunning, well appointed, comfortable and with breathtaking views from every window. The steps up to it are steep and you cross a section of pebbled beach to access the property, so pack lightly. The villa's position is idyllic, offering total privacy, yet only a moments walk down to the beach. Kalami has two great tavernas, Thalassa served the best octopus we've ever tasted and staff were super friendly; while Taverna on the Rocks, accessed by an extremely rickety staircase, had a real Shirley Valentine feel about the setting, as well as delicious fresh fish and baked feta. The beach has a water sports company, boat hire, paddle boards and Kayaks. And you can easily walk along to Nisaki beach with another taverna, free sun loungers and more sports. We felt refreshed and relaxed after an amazing week. Thank you.

Samantha Jonkers, July 2023

The Lighthouse is quite an exceptional villa providing an amazing vista all day long. As always the Simpson Travel service was top notch and Anna and Barda exemplified their very high standards. If you enjoy your stay as much as we have, you’ll have a really tremendous holiday.

Two old codgers from Sussex, June 2023

We felt very privileged to be staying at The Light House; it is a stunning property, and the view is breathtaking. Even though we’d seen the photos beforehand, the reality surpassed our expectations by far. Yes, there is a climb to reach the villa, and the hill out of the village is very steep indeed. As we are able-bodied, we used these hills as our daily exercise, and managed to go home weighing a little less and feeling a lot fitter! The weather in October was astonishingly good; sunbathing temperatures but not oppressively hot. Finally, our concierge Debbie was amazing! She helped us in so many ways, and nothing was too much trouble for her. I am usually ready to go home by the end of a holiday, but this time I was heartbroken to leave!

Margaret Holmes, October 2022

The Lighthouse was an exceptional place to stay and it was our second visit there. Extremely well equipped and very homely. The owners made us very welcome at their taverna and even bought birthday cake for one of our party. Debbie the Simpson rep was excellent, very informative and eager to make our stay a good one. I would highly recommend The Lighthouse.

Paul & Sarah Thompson, June 2022

The Light House is a truly spectacular villa with wonderful views. Debbie in Corfu was very helpful and friendly.

Teresa Excell, June 2022

What a wonderful week we have had. Highlights included a hike to the top of Mount Pantokrator, dinner at O Foros in the deserted villa of Old Perithia, the Governor Olive Oil Tour and tasting with the owner George was fantastic, hiring a boat from Dimitri at Kaminaki and a late lunch at the Eucalyptus at San Stefanos. Thank you so much to Nikos and Dina and to Shay from Simpson Travel!

The Derby family, October 2021

What a place – we have had a magical time. It is beautifully designed – all rooms, terraces, balconies and the pool with fantastic views. Shay, the Simpson rep, was lovely and very helpful. Thank you so much for letting us experience a little touch of heaven for a week – Simpson Travel, you’ve done it again.

Neil, Helen, Jade & Max, October 2021

Another amazing holiday with Simpson! The accommodation was spectacular. Our villa concierge was super helpful with some local recommendations, there were so many lovely things to do and places to eat, and we wished we could have stayed for longer!

Jenny Evans, September 2021

What a fantastic week spent in this beautiful villa. Everything you need to make your stay so relaxing. Taverna Rocks – lovely food and Nikolas and his family are so welcoming – the food is delicious. Vitamins is also outstanding – fantastic service and very welcoming. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a lovely stay.

Sarah, Paul, Jan & David, September 2021

Superlative, outstanding, the most beautiful place we’ve stayed. Facilities of the villa are superb. Views and easy access to everything we could want. Sea warm and crystal clear, ideal for snorkelling. Hired a motor boat and explored the coast with lunch at The White House. Our little cove reminded me of the film version of Shirley Valentine, so peaceful and relaxing. Genuinely sad to go. With many thanks.

Jenny & Jonathan, Alison, Angus, September 2021

We’re already looking forward to coming back! We’ve had the msot blissful week discovering Kaminaki and the surrrounding area. We have eaten so much and spent so much time drinking in the incredible views. We enjoyed discoverning the path to the next beach along where the children enjoyed a donut ride. The Light House has eveyrthing we could possibly want or need. Thank you!

Peregrine, Hester, Orlando, Isaac & Theo, August 2021

What a superb week we’ve had at The Light House – it’s been an absolute slice of heaven and we’ve fallen in love with the island, the people and the way of life! Thank you for such a wonderful time in this absolutely stunning spot. Recommendations from us would be Vitamins, Taverna Agni, Taverna Kerasia and The White House. Renting a boat from Dimitri is a must or Fantos in Nissaki. We will be back!

Rachel, Will, Archie & Ella, August 2021

The accommodation was amazing – we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Spectacular views, extremely well equipped, beautiful pool. Simpson Travel was excellent from the moment of booking to the time of arrival. They were very fair and informative throughout the pandemic.

Paul Thompson, August 2021

We have just enjoyed a wonderful fortnight at The Light House. Views stunning, villa perfect and pool sensational. We look forward to coming back.

Neil, Sandra, Ava, Louis & Charlotte, August 2021

Fabulous holiday, our second visit to The Light House and this time was even better than the last. A lovely house, wonderful views, perfect weather, great food, relaxation and lots of exercise. It was everything that a holiday should be.

Maximilian Meadows, September 2020

We had a wonderful holiday in a truly spectacular villa.

Mr Wallbank, October 2019

Another excellent villa holiday with Simpson. Great property in a superb location and friendly, helpful people. What’s not to like?

Nick, September 2019

Thank you Nikos and Dina for your vision, hard work and commitment in building your magnificent villa. What an amazing place! Fabulous views, beautifully appointed, no detail overlooked. We have spent a memorable week and loved every minute even on the day it rained. We are hoping to be back again – as soon as possible.

Richard & Joyce, May 2019

Up to Simpson Travel’s usual excellent standards.

Nick & Lynette Grantham, September 2018

The whole experience from booking to arrival was faultless. The Light House was amazing, as were all Simpson Travel staff we came into contact with. We will definitely book with you again.

Jo, September 2018

The Lighthouse in Kaminaki is fabulous. The steps to get to it are worth it for the amazing panoramic views. It’s close enough to the hamlet and beach to appreciate the atmosphere, but far enough to create privacy and tranquility. The professional and personal service from Simpson Travel made everything run smoothly and efficiently. We would recommend the company to our friends.

Clare Orman, September 2018

The Light House is an amazing villa with stunning views that we will all treasure forever. The infinity pool was pure bliss. Even though there are a number of steps to reach this treasure, it kept us fit. Once you arrive at the top each time, the spectacular vista takes your breath away.

Mrs Taylor, August 2018

Everything about our holiday exceeded expectations. Despite the arduous climb to the property, we felt the effort was worthwhile, for the style and position was unsurpassed and quite breathtaking. Debbie, our Simpson Travel rep was extremely welcoming and efficient, suggesting many ways in which we could take advantage of this beautiful island, for instance, where to park when visiting Corfu Town and recommending the best restaurants and tavernas where we could sample the delicious and varied local cuisine. Our first Simpson Travel holiday but certainly not our last!

Mr Turner, October 2017

Well done Simpson Travel – everything excellent and will certainly be booking with you hopefully in the not too distant future. A big THANK YOU.

Mr Emery, October 2017

The Lighthouse is a stunning property with fantastic views, well worth the climb up the many steps! Excellently furnished, very clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. Thank you Simpson Travel we have had another super holiday!

Mrs Baines, October 2016

We haven't used a tour operator as such for years but Simpson Travel reminded us of how useful it is to have someone there to help if the need arises. Excellent advice, both at home and at the location. Will definitely use again.

Mrs Eccles, July 2016

Simpson Travel is an excellent tour company. They are a very professional organisation. From discussing our holiday needs with their knowledgeable representative to returning home after our time in Greece everything went very smoothly. If you haven't travelled with them before, give them a try. We did and we were very satisfied indeed.

Mrs Wilson, June 2015

The views are amazing! The villa is stunning we have had the most relaxing week, beautiful sunshine by day and the odd early season storm by night.

Mrs Williams, May 2015

We've had an amazing time in Corfu and have been blown away with the villa. The views are just breathtaking and something you can never tire of. The weather has been great and my son loved the pool and having the beach on our doorstep. Everything has been first class! As a family we have had a great time and made some amazing memories that we will always remember and cherish from this holiday. This is our best holiday to date. Thanks for everything!

Mr Hunt, May 2015

We had a wonderful experience with Simpson Travel – they looked after us superbly – made the travel arrangements easy and hassle free, were flexible and helpful in every way. Our rep in Corfu was extremely efficient – recommended restaurants, clubs, taxis, etc. We will definitely travel through them again.

Mrs Slevin, June 2014

Seasoned Simpson travellers though we are, this villa exceeded our expectations and our friends were very impressed with the whole Simpson Travel experience! Thanks to Peter for enabling much of this.

Mrs Duggleby, October 2013

A wonderful holiday and fantastic concierge service. Holidays don't get much easier than this.

Mrs Hill, July 2013
