About Derek Blunn

We are a retired couple with very chequered pasts ranging from mechanical engineering through to college lecturer and from linguistic secretaryship to owner of a medium sized plastic manufacturing and distributing company. We married 7 years ago and have 6 children between us. We enjoy our retirement very much and see Uhlenhorst as our most recent project, and it keeps us out of trouble.

Derek Blunn purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Derek Blunn chose Lithakia

We have lived on the island for many years: 23 and 12, respectively and have always loved this part of the island and particularly this location. We were lucky that it became available just as we got together and decided to move in together. Every morning we awake and can't believe our luck to have such uplifting views.

Paradise in Lithakia

  • 4 out of 5
We have stayed in the lovely cottage in Lithaka for 8 days. The cottage is small, but has everything you need!
The enormous garden has many beautiful places en and there is a nice pool.

Elke and Derek (the owners) are really nice and lovely people! They can tell you so much of the island and know the things you can't find in the travelguides ect....

Lithaka is a quiet village but we can call it a perfect place to explore the island. Close to several other villages (touristic and main land) and some beautiful beaches. The best way to explore the island is to rent a car, it gives you a lot of freedom!

Zakynthos is a beautiful island and we had a great time at Derek & Elke's paradise and at the all the great places of this island.

A beautiful place to relax and unwind

  • 5 out of 5
The gardens and the range of seating and sunbathing areas provide ample opportunity to relax and take in the fantastic views. There is somewhere to find either the sun or the shade according to your preferences and time of day.
The accommodation is compact, however, provides everything that you need and there is plenty of storage - something that you don't often find.
The owners of the property have a wealth of information and gave us a number of useful tips on places to visit by car. A car is very useful and would be recommended, though you can walk to a few cafes/restaurants.
The island is beautiful and this property is a haven of loveliness.
Thank you

Instant chill...

  • 5 out of 5
The best way to sum up Owl's Nest see Thesaurus entry for 'idyllic'!!!
This accomodation was recommended to us by another resident on Zante and it was everything we could have hoped for and more. Derek and Elke are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet, nothing is too much trouble for them. Our only mistake was not hiring a car on arrival but on our first night the waiter from Denis's (the local Taverna) gave us a lift back and the following day the proprietror of Freddo's gave us a lift to Lagana to hire a car, you would have thought we were old friends not just tourists.Thank you both for a wonderful holiday providing a much needed rest after a stressful 2 years. We WILL see you again.
Note to Derek: update your photos of the garden mate,they really do not do justice to the hard work Elke and your goodself put in.

Perfect 2 Weeks

  • 5 out of 5
Derek and Elka are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet and they helped make our perfect holiday. This is the second time we have stayed with them and we hope there will be many more times to come! Perfect accommodation in a perfect location. Only a few minutes drive to all the nightlife yet you also feel like you are a million miles from it all when you want to be. It's the perfect combination. That is a lot of 'perfect's and it is well deserved!! Thank you very much!!! J and J

hospitable and relaxing place

  • 4 out of 5
We had a glorious week here in July 2011. Derek and Elke were extremely friendly and made us really feel at home, pointing us towards good tavernas and activities. They could not have been better hosts. The accommodation was good and the position perfect, with terrific views over the bay and towards the hills.
The pool was showing its age but still provided a welcome swim at the end of each day. We would recommend this to anyone.

A perfect 6 day break

  • 5 out of 5
Well first of all a big thank you to our amazing hosts Derik and Elka who could not have been more helpful and more inviting. They really made our holiday! Thank you to you both and we hope that we will see you again.

The villa is a perfect little piece of paradise for a romantic get away. You have everything you need with in the villa. Although small the villa is big in personality and charm with all the essentials. A comfortable living space with a private swimming pool a step a away and a beautifully kept garden surrounding which creates the atmosphere for lovely evening meals/BBQs under the stars. We found it hard to rip ourselves away from the perfect confines of this beautiful place.

The island is a great place that will meet everyones needs whether you are looking for quiet and peaceful or action packed with a loud night life.

We would highly recommend Zakynthos and even more highly recommend the accommodation, you will not be disappointed!!

Situated on the mountain above the unspoilt village of Lithakia we offer magnificent views of The Marine Park of Laganas Bay and Zakynthos Town as well as mountain views from our immaculate gardens. Cooling mountain breezes waft the fragrance of herbs through the olive groves that surround us. From the extensive roof gardens enjoy the canopy of the Milky Way twinkling above at night and the cooling water of the pool during the day.

The local shops are close by and offer local produce be it wine, bread, eggs, olive oil, etc.

Other Activities: An abundance of good traditional Tavernas
