Vicky is a great host. Her English is good and she responded to messages quickly. Vicky has a website that is very good for planning your visit. Vicky collected us from the airport and we had a very late flight with 2 young children so this was very welcomed. We were going to book a car before arriving but we decided to do it once we was in Kefalonia. Don't do this. Definitely book your car before you get to the island. The island is mountainous and so I would recommend something above a 1.4l engine for the hills. We had a Fiat Panda for a couple of days because that is all that was available and all the car rentals on the island had their vehicles booked out. It was quite embarrassing flooring it up the hills and all the other cars still over taking, but still a giggle.Vicky connected us to Polly who rented the cars. She was also very friendly and dropped off the car at the apartment.
The grounds and pool are kept clean and tidy but the grass on the other side of the apartments is dry and unkempt. This is because we learnt that half of the villas are owned by someones else. Yes, it is cheaper to stay in them but you don't get cleaning services every day and supplies like loo roll, washing up liquid and towels provided.
As a whole, I would highly recommend staying here and although we have never been back to the same place twice, we are already planning our trip back here.
The Villa was perfect, a home away from home. The place was clean well kept the kitchen area had an oven/stove which was easy to use to cook your own meals, the fridge was large so you could stock it up. The air conditioning easily cooled the villa. The balcony area provided beautiful views out to the Ionion Sea. The owner Vicky was so friendly and helpful you honestly felt looked after. I would definitely go back as my daughter loved playing in the pool which was large and well kept. We had a great time during the whole month of July I can't wait to go back. I'm very happy I found this place.
