We were in villa no 2. 29th June 2014 for 1 week. Great location looking out to sea and the mainland. Extremely private villa. Found it very comfortable with large king size bed in one bedroom and the other a very large twin. The villa was larger than expected inside. With comfortable sofa seating in the lounge. 2 bathrooms each having a shower over the bath and a curtain and constant hot running water which is unusual in my experience for Greece. I found the bed comfortable. The air con was effective although a little noisy not a problem as it was a constant hum.
The trip from the airport was a pleasure in a private organised taxi to lefkas harbour. When we arrived at the harbour we were greeted by a gentleman to sign for our hire car before we were transported on a private boat to meganissi about a 20 min journey on very calm waters. On arrival at meganissi our hire car awaited with Demetri on his motorbike who led us to the villas.
Everything about the holiday was fabulous. Eating out was a real pleasure by the many waterside tavernas in Vathy and spartochori. The best beach we found was down the road from the villas just follow the signs for precious cafe (which was great stopped off one day for a fab homemade waffle and ice cream) and continue to end of road. There is a little bay with a cantina. No sun beds but a great little cove with crystal clear waters. we found meganissi to be a beautiful island. With views out to sea of the mountains of the other islands. Very pretty indeed. This year does seem to be a bit of a problem with wasps which was a bit of a nuisance but did not stop us enjoying ourselves. Didn't get badly bitten by mosquitoes just an odd one here and there.
There is a new bakery at the beginning of the harbour in Vathy opened up whilst we were there where they import lovely cakes from lefkas. You can choose one and sit and eat it with a coffee or alcoholic drink - heaven.
Demetri was very discreet and respected your privacy whilst still being very friendly. The cleaner came Wednesday evening and was very cheerful. We didn't require a clean just took clean towels which was fine.
I will also mention that Demetri allows you to stay in the villas on the day of departure until 2pm free of charge. he came on the final morning to borrow the car for cleaning. the charted boat was at the harbour at 4.15 which allowed time to drive to the harbour for a leisurely final feast. Then park the car up ready for the next lucky guests.
If you are thinking of a relaxing trip I would recommend this island. We are well travelled grecophiles and have not found a better spot this. Enjoy
