“Wow, wow and wow again!!”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a weeks stay in Villa Kefalos. Wow!! We wondered if it could possibly be as nice as the photo's on the website but it was so much better. Haris, the owner, met us on arrival and gave us a tour, we had to keep pinching ourselves as it was the kind of luxury normally out of our price bracket. I don't think there could possibly be anything he hasn't thought of. It was my partners 50th birthday during our holiday and I had asked Haris for his help in getting a cake, he said he would deliver one on the day. I expected a cake in a cardboard box but we woke up to find Haris had been early and on the patio table was a cake in a domed cake stand, a bottle of Prosecco in a wine bucket and two champagne glasses. We were blown away, especially as he advised it was his gift to my partner. We probably spent a lot more time in the villa than we would normally have done on holiday but it was so lovely. We spent time lazing by the pool watching the birds scooping water off the top and just listening to the sound of the birds and the goat bells. It was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The villa had everything we could have possibly needed and Haris had left some supplies for us which was a lovely touch. The pool, the setting and the villa itself are just perfect and I would urge anyone thinking about booking to just do it, you won't be disappointed. The cleaner was superb, we thought we were tidy but we'd return from a day out and it was even tidier and she had left beautiful fresh flowers in the rooms. We went slightly before the start of the season and hired a car but if you go in season more is open and you could possibly get away without hiring one at all but it would be a shame as there are so many lovely places to see on the island. Haris came to say goodbye as we were leaving for the airport and we genuinely felt that we were saying goodbye to a friend. We are already planning our visit next year.

“A Wonderful Holiday”

We cannot recommend Villa Kefalos highly enough, everything you need for a magnificent holiday. Communication with the owner was excellent throughout and customer service was second to none. Beautiful villa with all necessary amenities, wonderful furnishings, immaculately clean & fantastic location with sea & mountain views. Outside areas were lovely: swimming pool and BBQ area with the added bonus of being able to stay outside on the covered patio even when the heavens opened. We certainly hope to return in the future.

“Perfect villa, perfect host and perfect weather on an unspoilt island”

If anyone is thinking about booking either of these villas ,do it now or you will be waiting a long time for availability. Absolutely first class in every way ,with unbroken views over the sea.
Plenty of tavernas nearby and all served excellent food.A polite and proffesional host ( Haris )
makes you feel at ease as soon as you arrive , and if anyone wants to learn how to clean just watch how thorough Eva is. Villa Kefalos is fully equipped for wheelchair users, there are ramps all around the property to access everywhere. My brother-in law is a double leg amputee and had no problems whatsoever . Haris even supplied 2 shower chairs when he learned of his condition. We wish Haris and his family all the success they deserve as we all had a first class holiday.

“The Perfect VIlla”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wow, wow, wow. Villa Kefalos is truly 5 star +. We have visited many villas and we can honestly say that this villa is simply the best, the quality is outstanding, lots of lovely finishing touches, and unlike many villas everything works, e.g. not a single light bulb inside and out did not work.
From the booking process to the time we arrived to the time we left, the owner Haris looked after us. He provided clear directions to Villa which were all very straight forward, he sent a message to us on the day of our travel to say the villa was ready and then he met us at the villa and showed us around and to cap it off he had arranged a welcome gift of food and drink which we very much appreciated. Throughout our stay Haris would clean the pool early in the morning with out us noticing, sometimes he would leave a gift on the outside coffee table and then to finish off he came to the villa on the day of our departure and gave us another gift. Also the cleaner Eva came every three days, a lovely lady who kept the villa spotless, provided clean towels and bed linen and would cut some flours from the garden and put them in vases inside the villa, what a great personal touch. Also, one day the Internet connection went down, we emailed Haris and within a couple of hours Haris arrived and fixed the problem, now that is exceptional service!

Villa Kefalos is very well equipped and is spotless. It is very private with wonderful views out to sea across to Zakynthos and the surrounding landscape, including the spectacular Mount Einos that towers behind the Vila. The infinity pool is wonderful where you can drift around and look out to the fantastic views ,below the pool is a lovely garden area with a very well equipped BBQ and all around the pool are lovely flowers and plants that bring wonderful colour to the Villa. The Villa's position is such that you can still be lounging by the pool in full sun at 8pm, of course with a glass of the excellent local Robala wine.

The location of the villa is perfect there are a good selection of restaurants and well stocked supermarkets all within 10 minutes walk. The nearest beach is approx 15 mins walk with the larger Lourdas beach approx 25 min walk (there is also a bus service to the beach), at Lourdas there are plenty of restaurants to take lunch in and there are boats for hire too. Although not essential we hired a car for the two weeks and when we could bear to drag ourselves away from the villa spent our days exploring Kefalonia which has spectacular landscapes. We recommend Sami, Argostoli, Agia Efima, Myrtos beach and Melissani caves but there is so much more to explore.

To sum it up, we enjoyed the Villa and Island so much we have already booked villa Kefalos again for 2016 for another two amazing weeks. Thankyou Haris.

“An incredible experience”

We arranged this holiday directly with Haris, the owner, and it was all very straight forward. Haris always responded to emails promptly and courteously.
On arrival at the villa by taxi we were greeted by Haris and stunned at the beauty of the view and the villa itself. Every little thing had been thought of - there was a bowl of fresh fruit, bread, butter, milk preserves and a bottle of wine.
While we hired a car for 3 days we were really reluctant to leave the villa. It is incredibly relaxing and we both slept so well. There are plenty of tavernas nearby and the beach is easy to walk to. One of our favourite restaurants was Denis on the beach, we walked there and back a couple of times.
As the kitchen in the villa is so well equipped we spent some evenings eating in and enjoying our meal overlooking the best view with a few bottles of the local wine!
The villa is cleaned twice a week by a lovely lady called Eva and Haris cleans the pool early in the morning, you don't even know he's been unless he leaves one of his kind gifts.
There is no doubt this is the best holiday rental we have stayed in, wonderfully comfortable and stylish. Making it all a very magical holiday for us. Thank you Haris.
