We`ve stayed at the residence at the begining of July, as a family of 2 adults and 2 children (11 and 7 years old). The property is not very big, so it was quiet. I was a little bit worried first because the airport was very close, but then realised this wasn`t a problem. Night flights were forbidden, and during the day it was fun for the children to see the planes landing or taking off. Our room was on the ground floor and it had exactly what we needed and what we expected. Big clean room, with a double bed and a foldable couch, tiny bathroom, but OK.
The location was right on a sandy beach. From the terrace of our room you could actually step on the beach. In the night, with the door to the terrace open, you sleep in the sound of waves! And the view at sunset, wow... I don`t have words to describe it!
The owners were very friendly, they gave us advices about where to eat, where to shop traditional products and what to see. And they gave to the guests a complimentary bottle of Cephalonia Robola wine!
My only regret is that we only stayed 3 nights, I wished we stayed longer. The property is perfect for groups of family friends, they have a very nice barbecue and an outdoor area with a children playground.
See you next time, Mr. and Mrs. Stelios!

My partner and I stayed at Ammos residence for four nights. We were impressed upon arrival, spacious room, well equipped and offering a great sea view. We asked for a room on the top floor and Stelios the friendly and affable owner duly obliged placing us in room 33. It was very windy however on our first day and we were unable to spend any time on the balcony as a result. We put this down to a possible one off as Stelios said that blustery winds were the rarity not the norm. However the high winds continued throughout our stay making it literally impossible to spend any time on the balcony whatsoever. This consequently and unfortunately completely spoiled our stay as the reason we booked Ammos was to sit on the balcony and being able to fully relax and enjoy the sea view and marvellous sunsets. The proximity of the complex to the airport runway was also a bit of a shock causing some sober relection that we should have done our homework a bit better before booking. There were a lot of Italian families staying at the hotel and it appeared that this suited them implicitly and I can see the attraction it may have had for family units, using the on site barbecue, next to the beach etc. For this sad couple from Wales however, it felt like and had all the appeal of a hotel stopover, before boarding your plane back home.

Ιt is really hard to say something to defend our accomodation to someone that complains that the wind blew so hard on the specific dates when he was on vacation.

We stayed at the Ammos Residence last summer for ten days and we were fascinated by the place. The owners were very kind and helpful, they know the island and were ready to give us any tip we needed. They took such great care of us: recommending tours, arranging shuttles wherever we needed and making sure we were prepared for anything and everything on our trip!
The rooms were great - we even had a proper kitchen fully equipped! I was really impressed by the size of the room –huge for greek standards– comfortable, very clean, nicely decorated and had a private balcony.
The apartments are equipped with air-condition, free wi-fi in the common areas, barbeque area and free parking for guests.
I leave the best for last... the view from the hotel was amazing – the sea was just a few meters away! You were able to swim whenever you wanted during the day or night! The sea was crystal clear and had that lovely turquoise colour.
It was a great location where we could relax but close enough to the main sites that we could get there easily. I would strongly recommend staying at the Ammos Residence in Kefalonia for the fabulous apartments and warm, friendly staff!

Kefalonia was really a beautiful place and Ammos Residence made it perfect! We loved our room that had all the kitchen supplies you would ever need on a vacation, the bathroom was very nicely decorated and our balcony and the view overlooked the ocean and the beach is so close that you can hear the waves. Stelios, the hotel manager, was a very warm and nice person and who gladely told us about all the things you needed to see on the island. Thank you Ammos Residence and Stelios, we will definitely come back to Kefalonia and then Ammos Residence will be our first choice when we return to Kefalonia!
