We had a studio apartment. We were very impressed with the size, cleanliness and the personal decor of the room. (We would definitely stay there again if we revisit Kefalonia). Unfortunately, we didn't have time to use the pool - which looked very inviting! When we arrived, we were early and hot! Vicki welcomed us with a cool beverage while we waited a short while for our room to be ready. Later, we had to go into Sami in our wedding clothes during the main heat of the day. John, the host, very kindly drove us in his car. We liked the friendly owners, who ensured we had an enjoyable stay.
We stayed in Sami view for 1 night as we were going to Ithaca but missed the ferry for that evening. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely and clean, a nice touch having bottled water in the fridge and tea/coffee. Great powerful shower and air con. Also a lovely balcony area. We asked the owners if they could help us arrange a taxi to the restaurants that evening and again for the early morning ferry, in which they kindly offered to take us their self. This was very kind of them and much appreciated, thank you. We were also advised of some nice restaurants to try. We will definitely return to Sami View as we go to Ithaca again. We may even stay longer in Sami next time to enjoy Sami View apartments longer.
We were at 4 different hotels in Kefalonia and this one was the best. We had the pool view apartment, which is spacious with comfy beds and a good equipment. The balcony was large so you could sit there and enjoy the sunset. The garden around the pool area is very well maintained. There are goats and chicken nearby and sometimes the peacock from the neighbor visits. Lovely peaceful and cost hideaway in the nature & super close to to Sami. Definitely recommend!
We can highly recommend Sami View. Had a lovely 10day break here, felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived. Vicki & John are extremely helpful and friendly hosts without being intrusive. Apartment is cleaned with bedding/towels changed every 3days....wonderful, fairly well equipped for basis meal preparation, but it’s all the little extras provided that’s great. 15-20mins walk into Sami centre with a good range of restaurants, shops, bars etc.
We don't often write reviews about our holidays, but this is an exception! The location of Samiview is lovely, with views over the mountains, valley and towards the sea, well equipped, comfortable and clean apartments, nice pool and excellent hosts. Sami is a relatively quiet town but uncommercialized and unpretentious, with a choice of beaches nearby and good choice of tavernas for the evening meal. A good base for exploring more of Kefalonia if you can tear yourself away from pool or sea! We had a great time, returning home rested and relaxed. We could not recommend this place highly enough. The reviews are true!
