Description from owner
EARLY BIRD 2019 OFFERS NOW AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME! NO BOOKING FEE ON THIS PROPERTY! This traditional stone retreat is positioned in the beautiful Greek village of Neohori, right above the bustling holiday town of Nidri. The house designed and built by its current owner is situated on the outskirts of the village offering sensational sea and mountain views making the most of the Southern Ionian Islands that stretch out beneath you all the way down to the Dragoneras. You are guaranteed utmost privacy at this home as you have no immediate neighbours making it the perfect getaway from the busy lives that many of us lead.The modern design of this property, expressed through stone, granite and wood fuses unobtrusively with the surrounding Lefkadian scenery, while its large windows and doors shower the interiors with plenty of natural light. Sophisticated taste and loving touches are the main ingredients used for creating this minimalistic but warm summer home. Pelican house has been equipped to be a home away from home and we aspire to provide all the things you could possible need for the duration of your holiday. This summer haven, perfectly equipped to welcome all clients including children offers supreme accommodation. Unwind on the natural stone terrace beside the organically shaped pool, perfect for a lazy swim or quick dip to cool off in the sunshine. Enjoy the beautiful views from the swing seat and come together at the outdoor dining area for a barbecue using local produce bought from the nearby town of Nidri a short ten minute drive away. Lefkas is hugely popular with watersports lovers with Nidri being home to many yacht and power boat charter companies. Down the road to Vassiliki and you will find a mass of windsurfers hitting the water in search of 'Eric', the wind that rushes down the mountain every afternoon. For the beach bums there are some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe including Porto Katsiki around the west coast of the island and there are plenty of trails for those of you who enjoy walking or mountain-biking. Or, why not just chill out by the pool at your private villa and watch the world go by below you!The owners of this private home live in Nidri and have worked in the area for the past nine years making them very knowledgeable about all that you can do on the wonderful island that is Lefkada. If you need any assistance in booking flights, car hire or any trips you would like to do they are more than happy to help. It will be them that you email and speak to on the end of the phone so no middle man involved guaranteeing the best price and service available. We are one of few villas on the island to have a rental licence ensuring that the house is maintained to a high standard and meets rental requirements.

“Peaceful location with wonderful views.”
Really well fitted house, with breathtaking views over the Ionian Sea and neighbouring islands. Very peaceful and relaxing. Any problems, which were few, were quickly sorted out. I would have given it 5 stars, but for the precipitous drive up.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review Gillian so pleased you enjoyed staying at Pelican's House.
“Great Place, Great View!”
The house is as amazing as it looks in the pictures! It's a great house with amazing views! Has a really nice pool with BBQ facilities, cable tv, home theatre, wi-fi, fully equipped kitchen, laundry machine and everything you would need from a holiday house. Sue(the host) even prepared a welcome tray with some fruits, oil, coffee and more! The price was really good and it was absolutely worth it! Will visit again for sure! The only "minus" I can think of is the road. It takes about 7-8 minutes driving up there but it's absolutely ok after the first time! Of course you will need a car...
“Excellent Villa with one of the best views on the island”
My wife and I booked this villa for our 'babymoon' - a nice, high spec location to get away from it all for 7 nights. We got exactly what we asked for with the villa being situated high on the side of a mountain but easily accessible by car (approx. 10 minutes to get from the villa to the major bypass outside of Nidri town). Evenings were absolutely quiet save the sounds of nature, complete peace for long sleeps. The photos available speak for themselves so I shall say no more than they are true and accurate representations of the villa and its surroundings - no photoshop in sight. The view overlooking the bay outside of Gheni never got old, and we found ourselves choosing to spend our evenings swimming / having a BBQ on the large patio of the villa, heading down at night into Nidri as the mood took us. The villa is on the east of the island, and whilst the best beaches such as Egremni are on the west, the drive around the south of the island (don't go north, not as pretty) was an absolute joy to drive - long, open winding mountain roads with the roof down and sun shining. Personally, I think it's better to be on the east as that's where the boats launch from (Nidri) and it has a better buzz although the south west of the island is pretty cool too. Anyway, that's for folks to decide for themselves but it worked for us. Full disclosure - the first time you ascend the mountain road to the villa, it can be somewhat daunting if you've not had experience of such before. I didn't, but by the second day I was a pro and actually really started to enjoy the drive! Just don't rent / take a car any larger than a Suzuki Jimmy or you might run into some bother. The villa itself was to a high standard of cleanliness, with the pool maintained regularly during our stay. Outdoor lighting was soft so as not to attract too many bugs at dinner, beautiful flowers and roses decorating the property. Shower facilities very good, wifi is solid and reliable (you won't be streaming movies, but fine for surfing and sending pics home). The owner & contact on the island were both pleasures to liaise with, with no intrusion during our stay and very efficient checking in & out. The property has an 'honesty bar' which was very well stocked, and it's a simple request to replace what you take. Local amenities are 10m away at the bottom of the hill in Nidri, no bother. Recommend you hit up Carrfour either in Lefkadas or an express down south for higher value load-ups. Anyway, we loved it and were very glad to be on our mountain away from it all, but only a short drive to the action when we wanted it. We'd both recommend it - just make sure you're ok with driving up a mountain (really it's no bother - just fair warning).
“Perfect Honeymoon in the most beautiful villa.”
We have just returned from our minimoon at Pelican house and it was just perfect. The house had everything we needed and we absolutely loved the sound system for listening to music while we BBQd and lounged. Sue who looks after the villa was so helpful with organising taxis into Nidri and advice on where to visit and eat (to be honest we loved the villa so much we only went out one evening). We arrived late so Sue kindly organised beautiful traditional Greek food to be picked up en-route. When we arrived there was a lovely bouquet congratulating us on our wedding, a bottle of cava, fresh bread fruit, greek yogurt, honey etc. Such a lovely touch. The views from the villa are utterly spectacular, we traveled the entire island and at no point did we see a better view. The pool and villa were spotless. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa and desperately hope to return. We are planning on returning next year and taking advantage of the villa sail option. We both really regret not doing that this time. The only thing I would say is that you definitely need to hire a car, and if you are not comfortable driving up mountain roads on the right hand side of the road this may not be the villa for you. However once you have driven the road once its completely fine and there is hardly any traffic and is worth it for the stunning views from the villa.
“A little piece of heaven!”
Amazing villa on top of the mountain, fantastic views, amazing pool & great BBQ. The last bit of the drive up is a little tricky but well worth it when you get there. We had everything we needed and didn't want to leave!
