me and my friend are hoping to go to Kavos but are both under 18, does anyone know if they allow under 18's to stay with them?
Stayed at Daskalos Apartments Aug 08 - apartment (the one on the left in the photo) was right by the pool which was a good size & always had sunbeds (which were free ) vacant. Everywhere at Daskalos was spotlessly clean & it was right on the beach (see photo of bar/restaurant with sea in the background). Temperatures soared to 40 degrees, so the tree overhanging the beach was very useful when the sun got too much.
Lovely quiet location (so you could relax during the day), with the main street about 2 minutes walk away, & the strip (where all the clubs are) about 10 minutes walk away.
Everyone was so friendly - from the old lady (about 80) in the supermarket up the road (Chandris - the biggest & best in Kavos), to the maid who cleaned our apartment every day.
You have to pay 49 Euros per week for air con, but it was WELL worth it because it was so hot when we were there. The safes are by the bar & are free.
Had some lovely Greek meals at Aristos just at the top of the road (good sized portions), & cooked breakfasts at Daskalos (Yannis & Bella are excellent cooks). Don't expect to be able to 'self-cater' - there are no butchers or fishmongers in Kavos, fruit is scarce & salad/veg virtually non-existent.
Yannis, Bella & George (owners) were absolutely wonderful, always smiling & helpful. In fact, a good part of the reason we enjoyed the holiday so much was because of them & their lovely apartments.
I'd certainly recommend them to anyone - just wish I was still there now!

hello just got back from the daskalos and i thought it was really good, nice location right on the beach even though the beach isnt that nice theres loadsa of seaweed but still very close.
daskalos is the best place i have stayed... EVER. bella yannnis and our little georgie... oh how i miss them. the location of the apartments are great, right on the beach and 5 minutes from the strip (well probably about 15 once you have been stopped by all the PR's), but its far enough so you can chill out in the day. the pool area is really nice, oh and the foods nice and grown fresh!! we didnt know where we were going and had seen no pictures so we thought we were gonna be stayin in a right dump, but i couldnt have asked for anywhere better to stay!!!! hope this helps ppl!!!
Hello we stayed at these apartments a few years ago and it was fantastic, we have also tried finding a way to contact Yannis and his wife. We were made to feel so welcome and even had a barbeque with his family and friends on the last nite of our holiday. If anybody has gotten in contact with them could you let us know. x
I went to the Daskalos for 2 weeks on the 27th July. It is amazing!!!!!!! Me and my friends had a 2 bed apartment which was really big for greece accomodation and meant we always ended up with all the lads from the apartments coming up to ours. Yannis and Bella are the owners and they are so lovely, even though Yannis always pushed us in the pool. The Daskalos is right on the beach and only a 5 min walk from the main centre of town. If your going to Kavos these are the apartments to go to!!

hope this helps!!
Can anyone tell me if this is right in Kavos and what the beach is like please? A lot of people are saying it is dirty and it is putting me off. Cheers
Bit of a mixed bag for us. The location of the apartments is absolutely excellent; sock bang on the beach, right next to a supermarket + cheap bars, far away enough from the main strip to have some peace but only 2 minutes walk to get there, and at the right end of the pub run. The music played around the pool in the day is also fantastic with a top mix of 80's stuff to more modern dance. However, the rooms felt dirty and muggy, we had several complaints about our early morning noise (it's Kavos for ****s sake) and they tried to charge us for a lost key - that we had handed in, a broken fridge - that was broke when we got there, and a broken toilet - same as the fridge, already done. The bar shut's quite early as well, but the pool itself is nice. And if you do go, make sure you take a trip on Aussie John's Crazy Speed Boat, it's absolutely mint.
we had aparty of 5 people staying at the daskalos apartments summer 2002. The location is good central enough to town but just far enough away to get a good nights sleep. However when we arrived near the end of season the pool bar was only open for 3 days then closed up. And we had no hot water only cold, We had a baby off 1 with us and couldnt bath him in cold water.We complained to the owners who live on site. The said that they had hot water, they classed lukewarm water as hot. On our final day just for badness they turned off the cold water and turned the hot water on. We could noit wash in it it was boiling water. I personally found the place clean, but would not recomend you complain to the owners about anything.

The Chester Boys had a great time at Daskalos Apartments... Good Location, overlooking the sea (not far from the beach parties!)
It is also quite close to the watersports after you have recovered from the night out!
Just came back from Kavos. Have to say, we were really pleased with these apartments. Jojo was so friendly. She really made us feel at home. If your going to Kavos, definately stay here. Its a 2 minute walk to the main street, so you can start at the beginning & work your way up through all the bars!!! Loved it!!! Shame that they only give u 1 roll of loo paper 2 last u the whole week though!!!!
We booked a last minute deal to these apartments and it turned out to be a holiday to remember. We had a fantastic time. The apartments were recently furnished and they were spotlessly clean. The bar at the apartments was opened all day, good music around the pool and the food was absolutely beautiful as well as the service it was brillant. It was right beside the beach and 5 minute walk from the main town town. The holiday would not have been the same if it wasn't for Jo-Jo (owner of daskalos). She made our holiday as good as what it was. Thank You for the fantastic holiday.
We booked a last minute deal to Daskolas Apartments in corfu. I hadent even heard of it before, but was assured by the tour operator over the phone that it would be a excellent place to visit.Boy was he right our appartments were recently built and were very nice.The atmosphere around the pool was fab and as for service with a smile and good food you need look no further. This was all down too a girl called Jo-Jo she is the owner of daskalos and to be honest the holiday wouldnt have been the same without her.She was one of a kind and never stopped catering for our needs also thanks to her husband and kids yous made our holiday worthwhile thank you.fab place.
