Seeking advice on apartment choice
« on: June 09, 2016, 10:44:44 PM »
Dear collective wisdom in the forum
I'm a newbie to this group although holidayed in SS last summer and loved it.
We are a family of 5 (kids age 11,9 and 7) and are looking for a nice AC apartment, with a shared pool so the kids can make friends.
It's a special birthday for us next year so we will have a slightly larger (but not huge!) budget and it's for two weeks next summer.
Kids are desperate to go back- we loved all the restaurants, the beach, people we met.
Tried to contact Fedra mare but no luck, I think the summer is busy with repeat visitors. Can't stretch to delfino blu for the five of us in peak summer, unfortunately
Last year we stayed at perros- lovely 2 br apartment but keen to try something else and perhaps a little more luxurious.
Any thoughts or ideas would be gratefully received!
Many thanks

Hi NIC is the fedra full or did they not get back to you?   Christina's next door no 5  apartment is great for a family like yours but no pool but that's not a problem in San steph

I'd recommend the Perros. We also have young children of a similar age and will be staying at the Perros for the 4th time this August.

They have 2 bedroomed apartments which would be perfect for you. A great pool, nice air conditioned bar with air hockey and a pool table for the kids, and they are a real genuine family that will really look after you.

Edit: I've just read your post fully, please ignore the above, you've already stayed at the Perros 😂

Thanks for the speedy replies!

I've emailed Fedra Mare a few times but not had a reply. We also tried to stay there last year but they were fully booked (they give preference to repeat customers, I think - fair enough but difficult to get a reservation when you are stuck with school holidays, as we are)

I'll look at Olga apartments - do you know if they have a kitchen in them?
Any other recommendations?

Many thanks again for the help!!

Nic,  I think Rose Garden have family rooms.  They have a lovely pool area. A little bit out of the way though.

Thanks for the reply
I looked at rose gardens, but only available through thomson and would prefer to go indi, as we did last year, with easyjet flights.
I think Tereza has some new larger apartments being built?
I looked at Christina apartments which look lovely - does anyone know which pool is near by and if we can use it ok? The kids really want to be in the pool all day!

I'm now going round in circles looking at apartments - can't decide!

Many thanks again for the forums help

Hey nic just a personal preference as I grew up goin to the tsaros up the hill from margerite market. Thanasis is an awesome bloke and nice little pool great for kids just the walk up the hill but from experience very worth It

Thanks for the suggestions!

Sadly no reply from Fedra Mare...
So I think my options are
1. Christina apartments - she has availability (yay!), look nice, good price but no pool.
2. Jasmine apt at Kapetnaious - think this has a shared pool (Lesley's at corfu selections suggestion - or otherwise a stand alone villa)
3. New 2 br at Tereza - being buit, more pricey but has got shared pool and great reviews

My husband would like a nice, spacious comfortable apartment ; the children just want to be in the pool - all the time! - and meet other kids.

Can anyone help me chose?!

You couldn't do better than Tsaros Apartments, lovely family, nice pool,clean, comfortable Apartments and quiet location.You can book independently or go with Thomson.

Ok thanks you again- responses much appreciated!
As several votes for Tsaros- could be good for us. Does anyone have contact details for them as the website doesn't load and we would much prefer to go independently rather than with Thomson etc
Thanks so much!
