Absolutely everything we wanted: very clean, quiet location, nice and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We have been two weeks in Kefalonia and we could not asked for a better owner as Colin provided us with a lot of info and he sent us the key before leaving England, so no waiting about when we arrived. Villa was very clean and had everything we need it to feel at home: we found all the main consumable we need it, even charcoal for the BBQ and as a matter of respect we made sure we replenish those as we left, even nobody asked us to do so. Alison and Roy were very well looking after us and after the house - thank you Guys! The unlimited internet and Netflix was a big bonus for us because we watched many movies in the evening. The location is great as it is very quiet but not far from Katelios, which has very good tavernas. A perfect holiday for us. Many thanks Colin! We hope to come back in the future.

Two weeks in a great villa.

  • 5 of 5

Loved your villa. It had everything we wanted for our two weeks in the sun. We had the end of the heatwave but your Air Conditioning in all rooms was perfect. Loved the private terrace and most of all the Private Pool for those cooling dips. It was so peaceful with no one to complain that we played loud music (which happened to us before in a villa).

The only thing I couldn't find was egg cups. I know it's petty but I love boiled egg and soldiers every morning. It's not a complaint as you have far more there than other rentals we've been to (Netflix, plug converters, beach towels, iPod dock for example). It's just an observation. We will definitely be back with you again. Your agents Alison and Roy were so helpful. Thank you.

Great place to stay for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Found this place by recommendation from a friend who stayed 2 years ago.

It was everything I was told. Peaceful, lovely private pool, well fitted out and big fridge for our Mythos!

Katelios is only five mins drive away for tavernas but try the local Elios restaurant 3/4 mile away from the villa. Superb food.

We stocked up from the supermarket just outside Argostoli and that sorted us.

Tried to book for 2018 as we loved it but it's booked so it's 2019 for us.

A great place to stay for us. Private pool too

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay which is very clean and well equipped. There was a heatwave there when we went but the Air Conditioning worked so well.

Got a normal size fridge/freezer so we could stock up with a weeks supply in one shop at the supermarket.

Great wifi and Netflix included on the TV

Private pool and patio not overlooked.

You need a car but the local guy Venus Rentals did a deal as we were staying at The Parker -Shaw place.

Great holiday here. Thanks

Lovely Quiet Week In The Sun

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holiday in the Villa Apartment. The Apartment is well presented, clean and tidy and has everything you need. The pool was lovely & clean. Car hire as recommended by the Owner was very efficient. We were greeted by Kostas in the Airport Arrivals who took us to the hire car which was ready for us. Good suggestion to visit the larger Supermarkets before making your way to the Villa. Taverns are great in Katelios which is a short drive away. We had plenty of coffee / beer / meals sitting on the seafront. We have already booked for next year and can highly recommend the apartment. The Wi-Fi was very useful. The Owners are very professional and helpful.
