5/5 Excellent

First class villa
The only thing this property lacked was a pool. Everything about the Villa was firstclass

4/5 Good

Good Villa, good location
The Villa was very clean and well equipped and we appreciated the change of linen half way through the holiday. a very comfortable stay and a good location for good beaches and restaurants

3/5 Okay

Improve quality of information and welcome
Some of the information on the website was not accurate; the small swimming beach and pool is a good 30 minute walk away and involves a steep hill, which is not easy when its hot, one of our party has a lung condition so this was out of the question. It is essential to rent a car since the property is in a remote village with limited access to public transport and taxis charge a premium rate since they have to come from Argostoli. The owner was quick to respond to emails but the house was only cleaned once in 2 weeks and we requested a changeover clean for a change in our guests which did not happen, purported to be due to bereavement. We did not contact the property manager since this involved an international phone call and we expected the house to be cleaned as part of the rental. The good thing was we had access to laundry so were able to change our towels. The welcome pack consisted of one bottle of wine, when we stayed in a Homeaway property last year we were provided with fresh milk, bottled water, biscuits, fruit and snacks as well as wine. It would be helpful if information could be provided for emergency numbers and taxis - there was nothing in the property about this at all. The villa is in a great location to explore beaches in the South of the island as long as you rent a car and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit despite the niggles. Lourdata is lovely and so is Trapezaki beach; Argostoli is a great town with lots of upmarket shops. We would also recommend Valsamis boat trip to Ithaca , which includes free minibus transfers from Skala and Katelios

5/5 Excellent

One week
Wonderful restful stay in well equipped house with three bathrooms! Great location! Loved the local beaches and visited local hotel for a swim in their pool. Great local tavernas and plenty of choice of bars and restaurants a little further afield by car. Loved having a balcony and plenty of space for a family of 5!

5/5 Excellent

Simply idyllic!
What a gorgeous villa! It's peacefully nestled in the foothills of the mountains and with a very short drive to lovely unspoilt sandy beaches, Agios Thomas and Trapezaki. Beaches further north are rocky but here the sand is beautiful. The villa is a handy few minutes walk to the mini-market with adjoining Happiness Taverna which, in mid-October, had just closed for the season until 1st May (luckily we managed to get a meal here before it closed and it is thoroughly recommended). We were also near a gorgeous bakery and the main capital, Argostoli, is only a 20 minute drive with supermarkets along the way. The villa itself is so quiet and peaceful and has everything you would ever need - even a couple of snorkelling sets! The washing machine was really handy and clothes dried within hours on the airer on the balcony. We arrived after 11pm and were delighted to find that water, orange juice, margarine, milk and wine had been left for us. We were greeted the next morning by the really friendly and helpful village management reps, Chris and Bob, and they bought round a loaf of bread which was very welcome. They also gave us lots of tips and advice. The beds were really comfortable and everything was clean and in excellent condition. The garden was a lovely place in which to relax. The owner Mary was so helpful when we made the booking and this makes all the difference. I'm so glad we found this villa and would love to return one day!!
