Cal, sounds like you had a lovely time in Kassiopi. I have fond memories of having a drink and lunch at the harbour and my son feeding the fish with his bread.
After lots of surfing and emailing I have made a shortlist of 3, in this order of preference:
1) Sebastians, but no reply yet so don't know about availability
2) Stevens on the Hill, sadly only availability is in building 2 which I'm unsure about
3) Theofilos, would have to stay at Pagona next door
Wish it was more straightforward! Thinking I should bite the bullet and at least book the flights as they will go up in price from midnight on Tuesday (Easyjet).
I've posted on AG forum as well to ask if anyone can advise me on Stevens 2.
Hope you're all having a restful weekend x

Still think you should go with Sidari after trailing a much loved now thirteen year old around Corfu for much of his life thats where he is happiest. But hope you find your ideal spot when you do let me know! Will be much appreciated x

I know my two older boys would love Sidari (unfortunately they're not coming with me), but the youngest is quite different. He loves being outdoors, swimming, diving and exploring nature. At home he is a skateboarder, plays guitar and ukulele and rides a unicycle. He also loves animals and the highlight of his holiday in Skopelos last year was befriending the owner's cats and finding a praying mantis!
I'm getting really impatient now and wish Sebastian would reply so I can make my final decision

I think Sea Breeze in Agios Gordis would be brilliant for you. Have you emailed them? I live ten minutes inland from AG and Sea Breeze is one of our favourite local spots and our guests just love it too. If you manage to book it up, you are very welcome to visit our house between AG and Corfu town to see how we "permanent" people live!!

Ive been to Kassiopi on my own for years and trust me the locals make you so welcome even if your on your own when you arrive your never on your own for very long, The locals are so family friendly and really make an effort to help you enjoy your stay, And there is a few beaches about the place for your son to enjoy his sports there is internet cafes swimming pools and places to play pool so a little bit for everyone. Hope this helps

That's a lovely kind offer thank you, might just take you up on that!
Sea Breeze was one of the first places I emailed as I knew my son would love the beach location, sadly though they have no vacancies
Hoping everything is OK at Sebastians as I notice their website hasn't been updated to include 2012 bookings and I still haven't had a reply. Seems it can be booked through Expedia or booking.com but I prefer to deal directly with the owner.
