Travellers' Choice
Ideal for beach lovers who do NOT want a pool. These well maintained 1*studios and apartments have a simple but adequately equipped kitchenette with two ring cooker, toaster, kettle and fridge. Both Beach Houses offer optional air-con and safety deposit boxes payable on arrival for package holiday guests and included for direct bookings. The sea view from all rooms in BHI is unrivaled. BHII, situated behind BHI in established gardens has a partial sea and partial mountain view. Reception is at The Virago Bar from 4pm, and the owners live on site but will purposely leave you in peace, so if you need anything do seek them out at reception. The beach is currently pebble leading to sand. Guests have use of the sunbeds in the grounds free of charge. Please note that in October there may be fewer eateries open than in the main season. Bookings are taken either direct through our face book page Beach House I&II Virago Bar or via selected tour operators. Please select which Beach House you require at the point of booking.

First of all Vikki and Spiros are the loveliest hosts, and best cocktail makers! ( Virago Bar). I’ve visited a couple of times now and the location is perfect, I love staying here with amazing views from Beach House I and a lovely sized room and a huge balcony. The garden out the front is great for sunbathing on the Sun-beds provided with the beach in front of you. There is always great communication, Vikki is always there if you need anything, nothing is too much always very accommodating. Virago Bar does the best cocktails, great value for money. I couldn’t recommend this place enough, if you’re looking for a relaxing place to stay away from the main town this is it.

The service was outstanding. We had a lovely warm welcome upon arrival and check in was straight forward. The accommodation was a little tired if I’m honest and the bathroom very basic. The shower would just stop during use usually when I had shampoo in my eyes. The toilet was very hard to flush and as is the norm in Greece no paper allowed which we got to grips with. Brought some scented doggie poo bags for the used loo paper which the maid really appreciated. The location was stunning right on the beach with amazing views. You could see Kefalonia on a clear day. We used to walk into Alykes centre for food and there were lots of lovely restaurants and cocktail bars to choose from. The virago cocktail bar was always our finishing point at the end of the night and the cocktails there were amazing. We must have worked our way through the whole menu by the end of the holiday. All in all we had a lovely week but make no mistake it is the location and view that you pay for with this apartment with wonderful service thrown in

If you're thinking of booking to stay at Beach House, the photographs are of Beach House 2, which is to the rear of Beach House 1. There are no beach views like at Beach House 1. The appartment at Beach House 2 was very basic, but not a problem at all. Taxes to enter Greece, the safety box and air conditioning was €60 for the week. The hotel owners are friendly, the town is a 10/15minute walk with bars and restaurants and car hire, the Apollo restaurant is a 2 minutes walk from Beach House 2 and is by far the best restaurant with great food and brilliant friendly staff. The sea is clear and very warm, all in all a lovely place to holiday and chill out.

Just returned from our happy place and once again had a fantastic holiday. Lovely to be back and what a fantastic welcome from Vikki and Spiros . Beach house is in a lovely part of Alykes and the balconies definitely take advantage of the views . Virago bar (also owned by Vikki and Spiros ) is a lovely place to end the evening . Thanks Vikki , Spiros and Nadia and not forgetting the lovely cleaning lady for a wonderful holiday. See you next year.

We are currently at beach house1 which has had amazing work carried out to improve the balconies and make more private. Lovely sliding doors and glass panels for an even better view of the sea. As usual a lovely welcome from Vikki and Spiros and amazing cocktails at the Virago bar. Nothing is too much trouble. We will of course be returning yet again ! Thank you Vikki and Spiros 😊

I have holidayed in Alykes for many years, the majority of my time staying at Beach House 1&2. For me Beach House has it all, regardless of which building you stay. Ideally situated with panoramic views of the beautifully blue Ionian waters to Kefalonia sweeping round to mainland Greece. On the other side of the property awe inspiring mountains lush with forests and olive groves change with movement of the sun. Both Beach House 1&2 are beautifully maintained in well kept gardens which lead right on to the beach. The linen is changed regularly and housekeeping is excellent. There is constant hot water and a great supply of towels for showering. Admittedly, there is only a two ringed hob for cooking, but who wants to cook with such a plethora of tavernas just within 10 minutes walk to the crossroads. However, if you don’t feel like waking there is a first class taverna just across the road and a lovely gyros/grill House just a 100 yards of so down the road. There are kettles and a toaster in all the studios and a fridge too. VIkki and Spiros are first class hosts, warm and welcoming and very helpful and informative. They live on site and are also proprietors of the Virago bar; which I hasten to add doesn’t disturb those who wish to sit on their balconies and terraces. The Beach House is perfect, addictive with a genuinely special warm atmosphere. Many people, like me, return year after and firm friendships have been made. Well VIkki, Spiros, their family and staff do all they can to ensuring you have a first class stay, so obviously I will return again as often as I can.

We are due to return to Beach house next week. It will be our 5th stay. We have stayed in both beach house 1 and 2. The views from beach house 1 studio apartments are breath taking. We spend our days on the beach and pop back in to bring out a cup of tea to drink on the beach, (we take our own mugs for this purpose to avoid breakages from the apartment ) adding a pastry from the local bakery in the afternoons. It is such a lovely chilled environment. The sea is delightful to swim in. On our first visit we were chatting to other people on the beach who said that they returned every year. We were surprised by that but by the end of our stay we could understand why ! Vikki and Spiros are great hosts. So friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The house keeping ladies recognise us each time we stay and we and are so kind and friendly. The accommodation is spotless with ample cleaning throughout the stay . We find the kitchen area quite sufficient for our requirements and eat out every night because that is part of our enjoyment on a holiday . We usually have a cocktail at the Virago bar ( which is owned by Spiros and Vikki) on our way out and then a drink and coffee on our way back. Perfect way to round off the evening. We book directly with Vikki and the price is very reasonable and we can’t wait to return.
