Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic week at Villa Elsie. The facilities were great and it is very well maintained. The views are breathtaking. We had a relaxing week spending most of the time in the gorgeous pool. Perfect for a family holiday.



The villa is situated in a really peaceful location, utterly tranquil.



The village is a short walk away and it has three equally good tavernas offering fantastic views across the gulf, perfect to go and watch the sunset.



The village of Kitties has beautiful secluded coves and really good fish restaurants.



I would not hesitate in recommending this villa - perfect if you want to go and unwind.

Amazing Family Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family from the US, We stayed Villa Elsie 3 years ago. Had a great time then, and gain this year. Plenty of space, Enjoyed the evening walks to the restaurants in the village. We had a fantastic week. The facilities were great and it is very well maintained. The views are breathtaking. We had a relaxing week spending most of the time in the gorgeous pool. Perfect for a family holiday. The villa is situated in a really peaceful location, utterly tranquil. We enjoyed the evening walks to the village with its three equally good tavernas offering fantastic views across the gulf, perfect to go and watch the sunset. The local beaches and secluded coves are within easy reach.

I would not hesitate in recommending Villa Elsie, perfect if you want to go and unwind.

Super Villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Together my husband and I chose Villa Elsie for a special family holiday. It was everything we had hoped for and the whole family had the most wonderful time. The villa is amazing. Spacious and easily accommodated the 10 of us, age range 10 to 77! Fantastic views from all areas of the villa and a superb pool area which also suited everyone.

At the end of our 2 week stay we were all sad to leave this beautiful villa and it's peaceful location.

The housekeepers Pam and Gerry are lovely people and nothing was too much trouble.

Just a note:

We were surprised to find such a small kitchen and dishwasher in such a large and beautiful villa and one of the 2 bedrooms described as single beds was in fact bunk beds, but at least they are full size.

My 2 youngest grandchildren were happy to share the room with bunk beds.

We all had an amazing and memorable time.

Excellent situated house in quiet area

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in this very cosy house situated far enough from Kalamata in order for us to enjoy the silence of the greek countryside but still not too far to be able to take a short trip to the city if needed. The place was clean, pool was just the right size. The view of the see and the city was fantastic from the terrace and we enjoyed it every morning and evening before going to bed.
