“Beautiful Villa - Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Villa Zoi for 2 weeks and wish we could have stayed longer. The Villa is in a beautiful setting with stunning views. The Villa is modern and well equipped and the outdoor areas are very well designed. We enjoyed many evening BBQ's watching the sun set behind the mountains. After a day out exploring the island it was always so relaxing to come back to the villa and have a dip in the pool.

The villa is situated in a perfect spot. It's only 5-10 mins from Sami where we had lots of lovely meals out sitting by the harbour. Our children loved the donkey trekking which is just round the corner from the villa.

Dimitri, the owner, is so welcoming and very helpful. We would highly recommend this villa and would love to come back one day.

Thanks for such a fantastic holiday!

“Perfect holiday location”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Villa Zoi is a perfect place for rest and relaxation. The Villa is private and has lovely views. The pool is beautiful, very clean and everything is kept to a high standard. The fridge stopped working, but the owner responded very quickly and a brand new one was delivered the very next day. It's an ideal location in peaceful countryside, but only 3km out of Sami which has lots of shops and restaurants with plenty of good places to eat. We stayed three weeks, but would have happily stayed longer.

“Clean, comfortable, cozy and charming.”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The villa we stayed in was delightful. The owner made us very welcome and was extremely helpful and kind. The swimming pool and area around it was stunning and very clean.
The bed was comfortable and the views of the mountains from the bedrooms were lovely. Being able to sit outside on the balcony was a particular treat, especially in the early morning quietness.
The villa had everything one could need to make it a home from home. The only thing I would add is that if you like DVD's then take them with you. We could only find the BBC news in English on the TV but maybe we were not au- fait enough with the system. All in all a wonderful holiday in a beautiful place. Myrtos Beach is a must visit if you can. I will certainly recommend this to our family and friends.

“BEAUTIFUL VILLA”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our Trip was amazing. The Villa was beautiful and more than we expected! We traveled as a family with 2 young children and the kids had such a great time. Between the pool and the donkey trekking right around the corner, and all the beaches so close by. Everything about this vacation was great! Dimitri, Nikki, and family were more than welcoming when we arrived and are amazing landlords. We cant wait for our next trip here and we will be staying at theses Villas in the years to come! Thank you again Dimitri and family you were amazing!

“**Great Place to stay with Beautiful Location**”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is the second time I have been to Kefalonia and the first time I stayed here. The villa is exactly as you see it in the pictures. Nice little cozy villa, perfect for families or a couple. What is perfect for the guests is how peaceful and quiet is the area and the village. The owner, Dimitris was very polite and helpful and assisted us anytime we asked. I highly recommended it for your holidays in Kefalonia.

“Great villa and close to attractions”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We enjoyed staying at this villa - its a modern villa in a rural location yet close to Sami and the visitor attractions nearby. I would recommend Mellisani lake, Antisamos beach and definitely the ferry to Ithaka. Dimitris was very welcoming and he gives good advice on where to go and restaurants etc. Overall we were very happy.

“Nice place and very good value for money”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have spent a month in Kefalonia in villas Zoi and Chrsanti. First we would like to thank Dimitris, Niki and their family for letting us enjoy their properties and for being great hosts.

As a family we have a lot of experience in Greek island vacations and in Kefalonia. First, it is important to say that in villas Zoi and Chrisanti you sincerely get more then you pay for (we spent two weeks in each villa). Both houses are comfortable and equipped with proper amenities. They are located in secluded area in Sami region. While not very far (3 km) from village of Sami, car is essential. The location is very nice in the valley and is generally picturesque and quiet.

Positives:

1. The major advantage of the villas are very beautiful and well maintained pools. In size they are much bigger then you would expect for property of this rental level.
2. Both villas have similar structure, perfectly suited for a family of up to 6. However, in case of 6 guests 2 have to sleep in the living area (which is not a big problem during summer months).
3. Hosts are great. Probably the best we have seen in Greece for last 20 years. You can see not only their hard work for their family business but also a personnel genuine touch. The day we came, some fine details were provided to us, such as fresh bread, honey and a bottle of local delicious wine. Really appreciated after long trip. During our stay we had several amazing cakes brought to us by Niki. Really different from what you usually see in self catering vacation model.
4. The responsiveness of service (while we haven’t pushed hard) was really amazing. You can see that the owners care about your comfort.
5. There are some amazing lots in this part of kefalonia such as famous antisamoss beach (short drive), drogerati cave, Ag. Paraskevi Beach (strongly recommended), village of Ag. Efimia etc.

Negatives (usually for this kind of hosts I wouldn’t give much or any negatives but I still have to be fair to fellow readers):
1. The houses are located in the country side village. This brings some specific noises like roosters, sheep etc.. Nothing to really worry but still to be assessed. Those are not resort type villas but on the other side can bring some really interesting perspective (personally I like this feeling).
2. While owners will do their best to do twice per week cleaning this is still a self catering concept and requires some additional care for maintenance by the guests.
3. Afternoon sun has a strange angle on patios. Sometime this can be annoying. However after putting additional umbrella provided by Dimitris we have solved this issue.

Overall, I would recommend this property with all my heart. I am probably comparing it (and they deserve this) with units that cost much more.
