“Impeccable sea-front apartment”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Rented Zoe house for the full month of July - a returning customer since we'd already been in its twin, Ivy house, last year. Both apartments are beautiful, perfectly furnished and finished with great attention to detail. Just to give an example, you will fine polished shells aligned on the sink, the kind of thing you expect more of a Maldivian resort than of an apartment in Greece. This is just a minor example, to give an idea of the overall refinement of the accommodation.

Zoe has a beautiful sea view from the upper floor, and dining on the terrace is an unforgettable experience of peace and serenity. The lower floor is a bit dark and lacks a view, but it is mostly dedicated to bedrooms, which, as an upside, are remarkably cool (the apartment is air conditioned, but there was no need to use this feature).

Both Zoe and Ivy are 100% as represented in the pictures, the former a bit more classical in taste (and directly on the sea), the latter a bit more modern - both very functional and perfectly appointed.

Very friendly staff and pleasant complex, with nice 3 storey houses immersed in gardens and with a nice swimming pool.

Definitely not cheap, but worth the money: probably one of the classiest accommodations in Kefalonia.

“What a beautiful apartment!”

Zoe Beach House is the best furnished holiday apartment we have ever seen. Cannot think of anything which was not provided, including a welcome pack with wine. The lower floor bedrooms are semi basement which is a drawback but since only two of us stayed in the apartment this was not an issue. You really need a car to make the most of your holiday and be able to go to Anti Sami beach with its two beach cafes, and the tavernas of Sami and Agia Efimia. The apartments are well looked after by Sarah and Nick who can offer loads of local advice.

“More than you can need in a holiday villa”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Lovely house just across the road from a shingle beach. Shared pool with other villas and apartments although we were the only ones using it. On site managers who help with problems. Quiet resort, not lots of children, which wasn't so good for us but lots to do anyway. We visited the two lots of caves locally, one within walking distance with a lake that you are take around on a boat and another a 20 min cab ride away. Tavernas and restaurants within walking distance and everyone really friendly. Lovely bakery with coffee shop out the back 5 mins walk away. You can walk into the more busy Sami in 15-20 minutes along the beach or take a cab to the more lively Aghia Effima. Lovely break, loads of facilities at the villa and plenty of room.
