I enjoyed the most wonderful 12 night stay at Ballas Apartments in the pretty village of Agia Efimia at the start of October and would highly recommend. The view across the bay to Ithaca is spectacular. The room was well equipped with a modern shower and cleaned every day and there was always plenty of hot water. Stravros the host was amazing. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him and he went out of his way to facilitate my needs including meeting my late flight and taking me to the bus in Sami on my last day. He also gave me free access to his bicycle which allowed me to easily visit the remote and beautiful nearby beaches and the Paradise Beach Restaurant where I ate every night. This accommodation represents excellent value for money and I really can’t praise it highly enough. Thank you Stavros for all your kindness and hospitality I’m . I will be back.

We arrived two days late as we had missed our flight. Emailing the apartments to let them know we would be delayed, they were very sad and offered to have us for extra days! When we arrived, Stavros greeted us and showed us the gardens (gorgeous) before taking us to our room. We had a room-only mountain view room. It appeared to be exactly the same as a normal self-catered room, but cheaper through the company we booked with for some reason. The balcony view was ok, but mostly obscured by the sunshade. We didn't mind, as it was really quiet, and nice to have a private space. The bathroom was a bit tired but perfectly functional, with an excellent shower and good towels. The bed was really comfortable. Stavros offered to move is part way through the holiday to a sea view room, which was lovely of him. We had the ground floor room, which was enormous and opened out onto the lovely garden. Beware cute but annoying kitten who had to be forcibly removed from our room and breakfast most days! Excellent value and service. Really beautiful location to walk into town. Free parking was easy to use. Good WiFi too. I can see why it is so highly rated. Well done to the team!

My sister and I recently stayed 10 days at Ballas Apartments for the 2nd time. What a wonderful place! Our studio room with balcony overlooking the gorgeous Agia Efimia bay was comfortable, clean, serviced daily, good wi fi and A/C and the view just makes it so very special. The patio area below is delightful and peaceful and it's wonderful being able to swim either just below the apartments or, for us the best, off the little cove just a few minutes walk away down the path alongside the cemetery. There is plenty of easy parking. We have stayed in Agia Efimia numerous times and just love the laid back charm of the place - not 'resorty' at all, small but plenty going on to watch, experience and enjoy and ideally placed for exploring the beautiful island. Thank you to Stavros, a charming and attentive host, for helping to make our stay so great. We will most certainly be returning!

What a great experience we have just had. We had a sea view room,sunrise over Ithica to the vista of Aghia Efimia harbour, all types of craft coming and going 24/7. Relax in the shade of the beautiful garden/patio area or sunbath and swim in the sea. Just a short walk around to Coffee shops, Taverna's Super markets etc.Then to top it all you have a wonderful family concerned you are having a great time and looking after you. Stavros you are a star.
