“Beautiful modern villa with fantastic views”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property which was booked via holiday lettings. No worries as used a credit card and HL provide payment protection. Villa is too new for google maps and streetview so as we were already on the island had a little drive out to ensure it existed.
Plenty of aircon units and mozzie screens on the doors and windows. Pool is large compared to others we have seen with a good deep end. Wifi and satellite TV is provided. Great views down to Sami.
I seem to have the same observations as the other reviewer and sent an email to the owner but received no response:
The sunloungers are plastic and can not be adjusted.
There is no BBQ
Kitchen needs more utensils
The room safes are not attached to anything. Probably not as issue as I am not sure Kefalonia has any crime.
The black metal pool room covers and stairs can get extremely hot during the day and very painful to stand on.

On balance would consider staying here again.

“A little piece of heavan”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015
person found this review helpful

We collected a car from the airport and once we negotiated our way thro Argostoli, Chaliatata wasn't too difficult to find, although, be warned, a distinct lack of road signs on the higher mountain roads, also many goats roaming free on the roads. The mountain roads are very windy and steep, both up and down. Our journey to Sunrise took about 50 mins.
We were met at the villa by Rassias who talked us thro the basics. Is English is quite basic but better than our non existent Greek.
The villa is in a stunning quiet village with spectacular views down to Sami. It has a large upper ( with swing seat) and lower patio, and beautiful, but not, large pool, which is cleaned daily by Rassias, although we did find the steps slippery and my husband slipped on said steps one day and suffered some nasty bruising to his back. There are 4 sun beds on the terrace but no cushions available so not the most comfortable to relax on. Cushions a definite must!! The house is modern and has all mod cons, including a room set aside with extensive gym equipment, including treadmill. The kitchen are has lots of gadgets, including kettle, coffee maker, sandwich maker, dish washer, microwave. Only critism here is that there are many gadgets but not enough basics, ie, small saucepans, and utensils, but obviously not a problem if you eat out. The 2 modern bedrooms are large with spacious fitted robes ( not enough coat hangers) + small TV in each, although only BBC world news available. Bedrooms also have a safe in each but as not secured to a solid wall, a break-in would see the thieves making off down the road with your valuables!! Each bedroom has a very stylish and modern bathroom, master bedroom enjoying the luxury of a spa bath. There is also a shower room and loo on the ground floor. Hair dryer, iron and board also supplied. All linen is changed every 3rd day, along with cleaning, which is a wonderful touch but I'm sure once a week would be adequate. Rassias came to say cheerio before we left and very kindly passed on a gift of the local wine, so kind. Sunrise villa, a fabulous find and I just hope it doesn't become so popular that we struggle to book in the future. Our 1st visit to Cephalonia but will certainly be back for another visit.
