Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
11 night stay July 2019
Fantastically well located property ideal for those who do not wish to use a car.
Supermarket, and beach both close by.
Short walk into Skala where there are many great places to eat and drink.
Several boat tours operate from Skala we went on the Fiscardo tour stopping at the caves near Sami plus a couple of nice beaches well worth it.
Property managers came by every couple of days to clean and even emptied all bins, didn’t need to do anything just relax , a great holiday and would not hesitate in returning.
Good location and well equipped
The villa was well located just 2 mins from beach, as described, and 10 mins stroll into town. Nice view from balconies of the sea. It was well equipped with everything you need. A few problems were resolved by Glen quickly. Lovely friendly maid and pool man, really polite and helpful . The biggest downside for me, a poor swimmer who loves to doggy paddle within my depth all day in the pool , was the depth of the pool. I did not realise it was deep all the way along. I am 5ft 7in and could not touch the bottom even on tip toes at either end so it made the stay somewhat disappointing. Just something to note for others who like to be in the pool but can not swim very well.
The pool .is 8x4 metres .and the shallow end 1.5 metres deep and the deep end being 1.8 metres deep .with the slope .we were in contstant contact for many months before your stay and never once did you mention about you not being a good swimmer or ask any questions regarding depth of the pool .which i would have been to answer .but we are glad you had a nice stay .
Fantastic, modern villa in a perfect location. We have stayed here before and it is clear that Glenn and Mel are committed to maintaining a very high standard and a very well-maintained property. The villa itself is well-appointed and the kitchen is well-equipped. The pool is great, and there is plenty of seating space outside both in and out of the sun. The friendly cleaner comes twice a week so the villa always feels really clean and tidy.
The villa is situated in a quiet location 100 yards or so back from the road, with a short (flat) walk into Skala centre and its multitude of excellent restaurants taking less than 10 minutes. A small supermarket has recently been built literally 2 mins walk from the villa which is a fantastic addition, selling pretty much everything you would need and with a really good deli counter for meats, cheese etc. Attached to the supermarket is a small cafe bar, reasonably priced and really handy for a quick drink or lunch.
Overall an excellent two weeks. Can't fault the villa, or our hosts. Have already booked again for next year!
This is a great villla
This is the second time we have been to this villa and we will certainly be coming back again. The owners Mel and Glen are always great to deal with and the welcome pack of food and drink is a nice touch. Although only two bedrooms the downstairs living area is spacious and comfortable and the pool area is superb. There is a now a small supermarket built 100 meters away which is a real bonus and doesnt detract from the views. Love Kefalonia and especially Skala so cant wait to rebook again next time.
Lovely villa with a great location
A great villa by the beach
If you want to be close to the beach in Skala, this is a good choice. The beach is 100 metres away. The villa is comfortable and well-equiped. There is a good supermarket and a cafe/bar even closer. The town is a five minute walk. The owners and the housekeepers are very helpful. We all enjoyed staying there.
Skala beach was recently awarded the the converted Blue Flag with the sand gently shelving into the crystal clear turquoise waters of the ionian sea.
Airport 40 mins.
Agostoli 45 mins.
Poros 15 mins.
Sami 1 hour.
Fiscardo 1.5 hours.

Skala has a abundance of shops, tavernas, bars etc which are all within easy walking distance from the villa. The villa is situated approximately 30 metres from the beach, approximately 100metres from the nearest taverna and mini-market and less then 5 minutes walk from the rest of the mini markets, cafe bars and gift shops of Skala village. The famous beach of Mounda and kaminia are only an approximate 10 minute drive from the villa and well worth a visit.
Skala has a variety of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, bakeries, a pharmacy, local gift shops and car hire motor bike/scooter rentals. Tavernas spread along the coast road towards the villa. On the beach you will find a water sports centre which has an abundance of water entertainment from water skiing to boat hire. The Glass Bottom Boat excursions are a must.
