We stayed here recently and had an amazing time. The cottage is a lovely place to stay and the pool was lovely to cool off in. Sandra and Dave couldn’t have done more for us and are absolutely lovely making us very welcome.
Great holiday despite the thunderstorm one day would totally recommend and hope to return if we go back to Zákynthos.
Let me start by saying Marthas Cottage is a lovely place very clean well presented lovely views of the mountain and in nice location not to far from resturants beaches etc
Now let me tell you about Sandra and Dave
Trust me they cant do enough for you Dave picked us up from airport took us throughout the week to many different places and was always on hand to help with any problems
My wife was taken into hospital on our last day and dave and sandra visited 3 times in 1 day to see how she was doing
If that not caring about people i dont know what is
1 of the nicest couples you could ever wish to meet and look forward to seeing them again 1 day
(Even though they support the red side of mersyside ☹

I would like to thank Sandra and Dave for our lovely holiday we had at Martha's cottage nice quite area and thank you Sandra for the lovely welcome pack you greeted us with it was very thoughtful. If we come back to zante we will definitely be looking to stay at Martha's cottage near enough for entertainment but far enough for the peace and quite loved the chickens that roam around and the wildlife was great thank you once again Sandra and Dave.

We stayed here for a week as a family of four and we couldn't have chosen a better place for our holiday! The location is amazing; just close enough to local amenities (bakery, shop, restaurant) but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of rural Greece. The views from the veranda overlooking the mountain are stunning. We often sat out of an evening with some wine and totally relaxed. The cottage itself is perfect, well equipped with everything you need, the air con especially welcome. There's WiFi (very much appreciated by our teenage daughters) and a TV in the living room, although we didn't use it. The washing machine was a fantastic asset to have, and the garden has a long washing line. The garden itself is large and has a cute pagoda at the bottom, which we discovered was a haven in the early evening for some shade and tranquillity. We used the BBQ on a few occasions too. The pool was lovely, just the right size for cooling off and we really appreciated the privacy of the garden.
We hired a car and we were glad we did as it meant we could explore the area at our leisure. Although there are restaurants within walking distance (probably a 20min walk) I would recommend hiring a car as there is so much to do and see on this beautiful island. We would recommend visiting Keri lighthouse for it's spectacular views, and also Kampi which is further North on the West coast. It's worth getting a map to make the most of your visit.
Dave and Sandra the owners were the most perfect and thoughtful hosts. If we hadn't have hired a car then Dave would have collected us from the airport. Dave kept the pool immaculately clean and was on hand should we have needed anything.
Overall we are so pleased we found this lovely holiday home and we are already planning next years break. It really is an idyllic spot, somewhere to totally relax and a perfect base to explore the island.
The house was well equipped and in a rural private location. It was tidy and spacious enough for 4 adults. The owners, Sandra and Dave had thought about everything that we might need, including a welcome pack and a starter BBQ kit. There were several places to relax, and we realy enjoyed the verandah on an evening.
They were both very helpful and welcomimg and Dave provided airport transport for us and got me over to Tsillivi to my dauhter's wedding prepartion, which meant a great deal. The nearest beach is about a 10 minute drive or 30 minute walk away, and Cameo Island is also very close. We find a great taverna called Denis's which was a 25 minute walk away, with great views over the valley.
We have stayed at several houss and apartments over the last few years, and this was the most welcoming and generously provided for. We send a big Thank you to Sandra ans Dave for their warmth, generosity and wonderful hospitality.

Just returned from a week's holiday at Martha's Cottage and what a fantastic place to stay..everything you need is available (tv,washing machine,air con,pool,bbq) and nothing is any bother to Sandra and Dave, they made it so pleasant and accommodating that we'll definitely be going back next year.
The views are stunning and we honestly felt like we didn't need to go anywhere else on the island in order to enjoy ourselves..the girls loved the pool and we utilised the bbq one night after stocking up on some goodies from the local butchers.Laganas is 5 minutes away if you want to do the clubbing/drinking thing..some great restaurants not too far away..Heaven's Kitchen and Cool Peppers are great and the water parks on the island are good fun too...go there and you won't regret your choice..Amazing ****
