Sharon B  (January 13, 2008)        10/10

WELL!!!!! THATS IT THE END OF AN ERA. 

 
UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE HAD TO CLOSE LONG STORY, DUE TO MANY REASONS.  WE FEEL THAT OUR CHILDREN WILL BE MUCH BETTER BACK IN THE UK. BUT THE REASONS ARE TOO MANY TOO LIST.
 
WE HAVE HAD THE MOST FANTASTIC 2 YEARS AND DONT REGRET OPENING LONG STORY FOR A SECOND.  WE HAD THE GUTS TO TRY IT - NOT MANY PEOPLE DO. 
 
SO THANK YOU TO YOU ALL FOR THE SUPPORT AND CUSTOM THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN US.  ESPECIALLY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO CAME OUT TO SEE US AT OUR EMPIRE.
 
FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILY ARE THE MOST VALUED THING YOU HAVE IN LIFE SO THANKS TO YOU ALL.
 
WE HAVE MANY MEMORIES AND HAVE MADE MANY FRIENDS DURING OUR TIME IN ZANTE.
 
THANKS AGAIN.
 
PETER, SHARON, TYLER AND CARTER BALDWIN

One of the best bars in Kalamaki and one of the only ones (which I could find) that has three daily newspapers on the day every day. The food is great and to top it all it has it's own pool which is open to all. Great fun people I can't fault it. Thanks for a great holiday.

This bar is a must visit when holidaying in Kalamaki.A family run business that gives great value and excellent customer service.Both Sharon and Pete are always ready to go the extra mile to make your holiday memorable.All seemed to be welcome from single travelers to large families.They helped us with excursions and restaurant recommendations and having young children themselves they helped us relax by the pool while are children were safe swimming in the beautiful pool.

i've just found out long story has its own website it is at  http://www.tiptopwebsite.com/thelongstory

love this bar last year was quite small, but a beautiful pool clear clean water. this year they have built a nice big extension so can still drink there in the rain!!!

The long story bar has the best breakfast on Zante, the atmosphere and the people are brilliant and they even have a pool
call in for a quick evening drink and you will end up staying for breakfast, time goes fast when you are having a good time, you are made to feel like family
Well Pete hope you can get home before dawn these days

iv just come back last week after spending 4 months in kalamaki i spent every day in long story with sharon,pete,tyler,carter and not forgetting our pad, it was the best 4 month's i have ever had, we spent everyday around the pool having fun with the boys laughing the days away and stuffing our face's with shaz's fab food.

sharon and pete are a lovely couple who will make you feel that welcome that you will spend the biggest majority of your time there just like we did, and they really know how to throw a  party
 
thanks guys for making my summer a memorable one i can't wait till next year, keep in touch and tell the boys i miss them soooo much.
 
hopefully see you at christmas,
 
love you all,

Hi Sharon Pete Tyler and Carter!!!!

Thanks for looking after us on our holiday - Sharon's breakfasts are THE BEST we had on the island. We loved the pool - you can chill out among the trees, watch the Dodgy Diving and the euro-smash treasure hunt at the pool, or maybe even become the Kalamaki pool volleyball keepy-up champ (87 Tyler!!!) Carter will be joining in next year too I bet, once he gets his swimming license back?!?!?!
 
We had a great time at your bar, and miss you loads! Good luck for next year, you never know, we may just make a reservation in one of those lovely rooms of yours, and partake in one of the new boat activities you'll be offering next season.
 
Looking forward to the next installment of The Long Story,
lots of love, Caroline and Willie fae Leith xxx

And of course my previous comments should have been placed in the Melon Bar reviews........ So apologies for that Paddy & Lisa, but while I'm on here...

 
Well done Sharon, Peter, Tyler & Carter for all you efforts and for sticking at it in the first year. I'm looking forward to year two when you will just sail through the season with no effort now that you have put all the hard work in..
 
It was great finding your bar and you guys at the start of the season and I'll be there on my first day next year.
 
Keep making those big breakfasts and keep a good stock of "diet coke" in and you cant go wrong.
 
Back to UK for me now, so I hope to see you there when you visit in the winter.
