“Brilliant well equipped villa, Great Location, Great Holiday!”
Reviewed September 17, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We stayed at this lovely Villa in Skala for our Honeymoon. It is a great villa complete with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Elaine and Tasos put so much effort into making our stay absolutely brilliant. They were very kind, generous and attentive and ensured that any queries or minor issues were dealt with straight away. They make sure you feel completely at home in their Villa, which is so lovely and their attention to detail is fantastic. Couldn't have asked for more!
The location of the Villa is perfect as it is very close to the local supermarket, close to local great beachfront bars and restaurants, some beautiful beaches and the town center. There are also plenty of attractions to visit if you wish to explore the island, such as Scuba Diving, Sea Kayaking, Cruises to other close by islands and Old Skala.
We had an absolutely wonderful time away, and will definitely be returning again.
Thanks so much for everything!
Jenny and Ritchie

“Perfect villa and holiday.”
Reviewed August 27, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We just returned from villa Anna Maria yesterday and were so sad to leave. There is nothing bad you can say about this villa and the owners Elaine and Tasos.The villa is beautiful, so comfortable and a real home from home in terms of home comforts. It's beautifully decorated exactly like the photographs. It's spotlessly clean and tidy. Has everything you could need, aircon, wifi, through to beach towels and hairdryers. The sun loungers and parasol, in the garden are comfortable and with the swinging seat and covered table there is pleanty of shade if you need it. We went as a family of 4 (2adults and 2 children 10 and 7 years) the villa was perfect for us as the pool wasn't so deep that we were worried about the children being in by themselves. The pool was amazing to have all to ourselves and the children loved it. There is a few pool toys there( left by previous people I'm guessing ( as we did the same leaving a beach chair and donught rubber ring that we didn't need to take home) if you need to do washing while you are there there is a machine and a line to dry everything. There is even a mini dishwasher!
Location is brilliant.. You are about 2 minute walk to the beach. This is all stones though so worth investing in some beach/swim shoes to take as it makes it much easier on the feet but the sea is lovely and warm to get into to. The sea gets very deep very quickly but our 2 still managed a few afternoons playing happily in and out of it but very little ones would need to be watched as it does get deep within a few feet. There is water sports further down the beach if you want a pedalo etc.
The supermarket and small snack bar is 1 min walk away. Literally at the villa gate and stocks everything you need if you want to cook at the villa.
There is nearby other tavernas which were all ok or it's a 5 min walk along the beach road to the town where there is shops and many more tavernas and restaurants. Our favourites were flamingo and Socrates. We chose to go back to Socrates for a second time on our last night as we loved it so much. It's hidden a way a bit at the back of the shops near the roman villa( also worth a visit. Only takes about 20mins to really look at it all but something different to do and it's free!) but worth the extra few minutes walk past the other restaurants so Socrates as the food and atmosphere were the best we found.
The owners Elaine and Tasos were so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. I will be recommending this villa to anyone who wants a villa holiday and although we don't ever go back to the same place twice I have a feeling we will be back to the villa Anna Maria one day as it truly was a very special place and definatley our favourite family holiday we have ever had. Thank you Elaine and Tasos.

Dear Leanne, Mark, Scott & Ella
Thank you so very much for your fantastic review, it really means a lot to us as villa owners and the fact that it is so detailed makes all the difference for future customers that have already booked or those possibly looking at Villa Anna Maria for a holiday and of course the resort of Skala in general. We say this everytime we get reviews like the one you have submitted but the process works both ways, great guests such as yourselves makes our job so easy. The fact that this was your first villa holiday and you enjoyed it so much really makes us feel that we are doing things the right way. We very much hope to see you all back again someday with us but for now we wish you another great villa holiday on your next adventure. Once again thank you for being a lovely family and taking care of Villa Anna Maria during your stay.
Kind Regards Elaine & Tasos

“Perfectly located, clean 2 bed villa”
Reviewed August 8, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

great location- a stones throw away from the beach, snack bar, restaurants and supermarket. Town centre with all its amenities is just a short walk away.
The villa itself is wonderfully appointed, very clean with a lovely garden and good size swimming pool.
Owners Elaine and Tasos are very friendly and helpful and just a phone call away if you need them.
Will definitely be going back.

“Anna Maria villa scala”
Reviewed June 17, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Villa Anna Maria absolutely perfect for a young family. Our 2 children (aged 8 and5) never wanted to leave the pool. It is half a minute from a mini market and 1 minute to the beach. A lovely evening stroll into the village with plenty of places to eat.

Elaine and Tasos are wonderful hosts who pay attention to guests and the villa without being intrusive.

Scala quiet when we went which totally suited us. Cephalonia is a gorgeous island. Do note the umbrella in the villa (We didn't see it) as some beaches don't have them for hire.

I do hope the area around the villa remains undeveloped. The space really adds to peace.

Hi Kelly, Thank you for leaving such a great review for both ourselves but more importantly Villa Anna Maria. We want all our guests to really enjoy their stay with us, in Skala and on Kefalonia. It makes hosting so much easier when we have families such as yourselves and it was lovely to meet you all. The fact that the children enjoyed the pool so much and the outside space is also a big tick in the box for us with our family customers. Once again thank you for staying with us and we hope you all have a lovely summer.

“Perfect for outdoor living.”
Reviewed May 29, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

person found this review helpful

Really enjoyed our stay at Elaine and Tasos villa. The way the garden is planned it gives you total privacy. The garden is ideal for outside living. The inside of the villa is of a high standard, all you need for self catering and very clean.
There is a small modern mini market and cafe where you can sit and have a drink of whatever you want situated just outside the villa. There are plenty of restaurants just yards away with all the traditional Greek delicacies. Skala is a very nice place to visit, you can hire a car to visit other parts of the island or do what we did just stay local. Elaine and Tasos do go that extra mile to help as much as they can and nothing was ever a problem they were also very friendly. Don’t just take my word for it, go try it for yourselves. You will enjoy it.

“Quiet location but only a few minutes walk to bars and tavernas.”
Reviewed January 27, 2018 for a stay in June 2017

Located within easy walking distance of Skála centre. Private villa with all the comforts of home and pleasantly decorated. Pool area is not overlooked from any aspect. Close to a supermarket were you may hear some deliveries at times but is not really obtrusive. We have stayed in loads of villas over the years this is the only one we have booked for a second visit. Back again in June 2018 can’t wait.
