“Adastra is the Very Best!...and we're Fussy!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Stayed in the Country Suite 3rd-10th October 2013.
This place really is fabulous. Our hosts Angelikki and Nicos were so generous and helpful during our stay. We really are very grateful for their sincere kindness.
The accommodation is just like a luxury show home. Clean towels every day, crisp cotton bedding and quality, comfortable beds. Even breakfast is delivered to your door, whenever you are ready for it! There really is nothing to fault here. The standard of this property is probably the best we have ever experienced, better than any James Villa we have stayed at and higher quality than Sandals Luxury suites we have stayed at in the Caribbean.
The location is the best on the island we unparalleled views over the bay and mountains of Vathi harbour.
The weather during our stay was not good and so we had ample opportunity to spend time driving all over this beautiful Island. We always like to seek out little secret hidden coves and beaches and Nicos was able to give us hiking and driving directions to some fabulous pebbled beaches with turquoise warm seas.
Ithaka is a small island and you can drive all around it in about an hour.
There are very few hotels on the island and we saw very little in the way of alternative accommodation, certainly nothing that came even close to match to the beauty of Adastra Suites.
If you are thinking of visiting Ithaka, you really do not want to stay anywhere else!

Angelikki and her nephew Nico must be the most generous and caring hosts in the hospitality business! You won't want to hear about my problems when on holiday here or how they both solved every one of them quickly and efficiently, ensuring I had a wonderful stay against all odds but you should want to know about the excellent standard of accommodation they provide, the highest levels of housekeeping, the perfect views, the peace and quiet and the lovely free breakfasts!

They say you can only judge a good business by how well or otherwise they handle a problem. Well all I can say is that these hosts handle everything, problem or not, brilliantly and will ensure you have the best holiday possible. I will be going here again and I highly recommend it to others.

Couldn't recommend this place enough!

We stayed for three nights in the first week of September and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and weren't ready to leave!

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and immediately felt at home. Aggelikki and Minolis were the perfect hosts and we can't thank them enough for making our stay very special.

We stayed in the apartment called 'Luxury' and that's exactly how it felt. The room was beautifully decorated and the furniture was well-made and extremely comfortable. The small kitchen was perfectly big enough for the two of us to cook our evening meals and we had all the utensils we needed and they were better than the ones we have at home! The bathroom had lovely fixtures and fittings and the power shower was heavenly! The bedroom was comfortable and there was air conditioning to keep us cool at night and plenty of space for clothes. There was also a safe if you wanted to leave anything of value in the room. The terrace was small but had a great view of the harbour of Vathi, especially at night. There was a TV and DVD player provided for cosy nights in.

We did the trip without a hire car which is possible but would recommend one if you were trying to decide. We took the ferry from Sami as foot passengers (booked on the day from the nearest tour office and only €3 each) and got a taxi from the port (definitely recommend pre-booking the taxi if you can). Once at the Adastra we were worried as it looks like a long walk into Vathi but Minolis informed us of the steps leading down to cut out the winding road. Vathi itself is a charming little harbour which felt more traditionally Greek than the more touristy Kefalonia. The nearest beach for swimming was around 1.6km away (about 30mins leisurely walk) but worth every step as it was quiet and secluded and the water was warm and incredibly clear. Would recommend taking a snorkel as there is an abundance of sea life to look at. There is a bigger beach a little further away which is busier (but still not too busy) and has refreshments, sun loungers and umbrellas to hire but we preferred the more secluded cove.

Minolis and Aggelikki were extremely friendly, helping us with any information we needed and providing a beautiful breakfast each morning! Aggelikki's cakes were perfect (and I love to bake!)

Would definitely recommend the Adastra to everyone and we would love to go back if we find ourselves in Ithaca again!

We stayed at Adastra with 4 friends and all of us simply loved it! The decor of the flat was absolutely fantastic (we had the "Country" flat) and the rooms were super clean! Every day we were served a rich breakfast by the host incl. home made cake and juice! A big thanks to the host for making our stay in Ithaca so special!! We definetely wish to return to this place again!!

LOCATION
The location is ideal because it's situated close to the main city on a high elevation with a breathtaking view.
APPARTMENT
The moment we entered the house it felt like home! It's spacious, beautifully appointed with rustic charm. What impressed us was the fully equipped kitchen- all the appliances ,complete set of kitchen utensils, crockery, cutlery, linens and anything else you would need in a fully functional kitchen.
CLEANLINESS
The cleaning service surpassed that of a 5-star hotel! Toweis were changed daily, bed-linen every other day and the whole appartment was kept spotless at all times.
GENERAL SERVICE AND HOSPITALITY
I have travelled far and wide, staying in all accommodation types.The serviced and hospitality we received from the owners was unique: professional, sincere and heartfelt. For instance, although breakfast wasn't mentioned in the booking, the breakfast provided was more than adequate. When we arrived the refrigerator was fully stocked with everything you would need for a continental breakfast. And as if this was not enough, anything else you desired for breakfast was willingly provided.
GENERAL IMPRESSION
We had a wonderful holiday in Ithaki but we must admit that our stay at Adastra made it unforgettable!

We stayed at Adastra (Boheme Suite) for 7 days in the beginning of July. From the date of our arrival, Manolis, Aggeliki and Nikolaos treated us like very good friends, even like a family, always being very friendly and always willing to help us in everything. You just feel that you’re at home!

As for the villa itself, we can only say that everything is just like on the website: ultimate comfort and luxury, unforgettable balcony view and quiet peaceful nights with the sky full of stars.

This was the best vacation we had ever had! Ithaca and Adastra became second home for us. It is heaven - on Earth. Nothing more to add. Thank you, guys, from the bottom of our hearts. YOU’RE SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

My girlfriend and I were searching for somewhere special to stay in Greece and we decided after much research to stay at Adastra in Ithaca. We couldn't be more happy with our experience, in fact we were blown away by how beautiful and perfect the apartment was.
Located above the port of Vathy in the hills a short walk away from hustle and bustle of civilization you have your own fully functional apartment complete with kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, lounge and balcony.

As far as I can tell Adastra is the highest level of accommodation on the island and I cannot recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed excellent, we went for the Luxury apartment and couldn't fault it.
