“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013
people found this review helpful

This was the fourth year we have stayed in Agia Efimia, and the third time back at Hector's House. Our welcome, as always, was warm and generous, with enough food in the 'welcome' pack to keep us going for several days without needing to shop except for bread. Hector proudly showed us the improvements he has made to the outside kitchen since we were there in 2012, including a two burner stove in addition to the barbecue, and a dishwasher. These things make a big difference, and resulted in me hardly using the indoor kitchen at all - we lived outside and only went in to shower and sleep! The swimming pool was as sparkling and clean as ever, the pool surrounds and garden look great, the inside accommodation comfortable and really well equipped. In terms of location, as long as you hire a car, Hector's House is an ideal base to visit anywhere on the island. Myrtos Beach is only 5 miles away, and all the other 'must see' places are within an hour's drive. The village itself is charming, with lots of different tavernas to choose from, a couple of gift shops, supermarkets, bread shops and butchers. Boat and car hire are both available in the village. In short, we cannot recommend Hector's House highly enough, either for couples like us, or for families. The swimming pool has a safe, shallow swimming area for young children, and there is plenty of outside furniture for lounging on. Needless to say we have already booked to go back next year for a fourth visit!
