can anyone give me an e mail address or telephone number for either beach house 1 or the virago bar, as i have already booked flights and would have liked to check prices and availability for the beachhouse 1 thanks
Just back from 2 glorious weeks staying BH1. Massive thunderstorms for first 2 days then wall to wall sunshine every day. Vikki & Spiros as usual fantastic hosts in Virago Bar. BH1 spotlessly clean and looked after by Vasso and the wonderful & funny Maria. Saw all our usual Sept friends and made a few new friends as well. Can't wait to return again, see you for Greek Easter everybody.
Returned home on 20/5/12 after 2weeks @ Beach House 1. We had been to other places during the ensuing 5 years. Previously been to the Beach House1for about 28 visits since it was built, and I really don't know why we went anywhere else. We had 12 days of gorgeous weather, the family were absolutely great, Mr&mrs P senior were great, and Viki and Spiros, nothing was ever too much trouble.If you want a truly relaxing holiday,sea,shower,drinks and food all within 100 yards, is the best you will ever get,anywhere!!So relaxed and so happy. You might think this is a bit OTT, but it was sooo good. We'll be back. Wendy and David T.Rugby.
Just got back from 2 of the best weeks weve ever had, stayed in room 8 at Beach House 1, overlooking the lovely Ionion sea, the room was great, comfy beds and spotless and cleaned every 2 days, had a few nice drinks with Vicky & Spiros. Made some good friends John & Christine from Preston. also made good friends with Mr Solomos, met him in the Maestro bar in Alykes, didnt know he was the owner of Solomos wines till we met again a week later at his winery. Went on the Greek night again with Spiros and his train, bumped into Lindsey & Mike again what a coincidence. we cant wait to come back to Zakynthos again. Such nice people everywhere, thanks Vicky & Spiros xxx
Hi Ian thanks for the info. Went to Lindos Rhodes 2 years ago spent a fortune on mozzie repellent and no trouble with mozzies, don't want to waste my money again that's why I brought it up.Thanks again
HI Jeff We are going to Beach House 1 in September. We have stayed at The Paradise Apartments just next door, and yes you will definitely need mosquito repellent, they are quite a nuisance as there is a salt lake in Alykes, I recommend you buy a repellent that contains "DEET" this will stop any bites etc if you want to contact the owners try firstname.lastname@example.org Vikki & Spiros are the owners and Vikki will answer any questions you may have. We would highly recommend the Greek night thats run from the central booking office in Alykes center, you go up the mountains on the road train, its such fun.
Starting to get things together ready for my Hol in a few weeks can anybody tell me if there is
Air Conditioning, Safe, Electric Plug Adapters, Hair Dryer (not that I have had any to dry for 30 years), & what are the self catering facilities, also is there any need to bring mosquito repellent and a torch?
I know I have asked this before but people have been there over the past few weeks so if anyone has ony other suggestionson what I may need to take it woud be appreciated.
Would mind hearing about some things to do, excursions etc.
Were off to Beach House 1 next week! does anyone know if they have hair dryers etc in the rooms?
Thanks in advance!
- Just returned from two fantastic weeks staying in the 2 bedroomed apartment at Beach House 2 - it was wonderful. The apartment is fantastic and run by the lively and lovely Spiros and Vikki, who also own the great Virago bar. Was very impressed by meeting so many people who have been returning for many, many years. The nearby Paradise Hotel was great too for their sunbeds, pool and pool bar. And opposite is the Apollo Taverna with lovely food. Further along the road we found the Palm Tree 2 beach bar, run by Lisa (from England) - a firm favourite place for stepping out into the sea across the soft sand and a very friendly welcome. Visitors must go on the dotto train - it's fanastic value and a great ride out to a quaint rural museum, tiny church and traditional Greek taverna - we returned there later in the holiday for the best Greek night I have ever been on (and usually I give them a miss).
returned from beach house20 may .another great time had...managed to book for next year through co-op told me only 1 room left
It appears that Thomas Cook have removed Beach House, and the Sea View from their web site.This is a great shame as they are both fantastic apts. However never fear. You can book both of these at Holiday Hypermarket, Travel Supermarket, or Co-Op travel. I have stayed at both locations and have enjoyed both. This June we will be staying et the Sea View. Just don't forget to pop in at the Virago bar and see Vikki, and crazy Spiros. It's the best bar in Alykes. I promis you won't be dissapointed.
Hi Susan you can bool BH 1& 2 with Manos/ Thomas Cook. hope this helps. dot
Right I now I've got 9 months to wait but Christmas is over, it's a New Year so thought it's time to start to get excited.
I have booked to stay at Beach house2 in early September, (actually booked it last October), I have read nothing but good things about the place and owners but hoped I could get info on what the place/town is like?
Read things like " need to bring a torch" for the walk back at night, why?? I know it's dark but .... And it near salt marshes so are mozzies a problem? Yeah I know I'm a bit premature with all this but just coudn't hold it back any longer.
Also wonder what the bay was like for snorkelling and if there were any good coves near by, where about the Beach House was on the Alykes map, is there a view of the sea from beach house 2. Just general things.
Anything would be appreciated!
Hi Dot & Brian, many thanks for your kind reply, we are very much looking forwards to our next stay in Alykes again next year, its mine and my wife Julie's 25th wedding anniversary and we could'nt think of a better place to spend it than in Alykes.
