“Just perfect for all family generations”
Reviewed July 8, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Villa Eirene provided all three generations a fabulous week of relaxing and fun. The villa had internet but the teenagers spent very little time using as the pool provided more attractive entertainment. We were happy to while away the days dinning alfresco, competitive pool volleyball and soaking up the sun on the terrace. When we needed a change of scenery we would take the hire car which is essential to Skala for shopping, relaxing iced coffee and a swim in the sea. A fabulous place to eat and drink is Katelios, where you can choose from multiple restaurants next to the beach. The nearest beach is walkable if you like a steep descent and a challenging walk back. We found if you drove down to the beach continue to the end of road which became a beach track, the beach and swimming was our favourite.
Thank you Villa Eirene for a memorable holiday for all.

“Warm Welcome, perfect Villa.”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We walked into the Villa to be greeted by a lovely food parcel, coffee, sugar,bread ,cheese,milk,butter etc which was really welcomed after the airport run.The location is perfect for Skala ,Katelios, and Kaminia beach, lovely sandy beach for children.
The Villa was spacious, clean, dishwasher, washing machine and large american style fridge. Perfect for families, or groups of couples.
Air con in every room at no extra charge which was great.
This is a perfect villa with not a single fault, highly recommend and we will re-book with Tony, who was always contactable via email for any questions. If you love the Skala area this is the villa for you.

“Perfect holiday!”
Reviewed May 20, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We booked this villa on the recommendation of a friend; boy do I owe him a big drink!

The villa itself is lovely, four big bedrooms and three bathrooms as described, but the best bit, sitting round the pool with the radio on soaking up the warmth of the Kefalonian sun. You can do that anywhere on the island but considering the villa is just 500m from the best beach on the island it's so peaceful and relaxing, all you can hear is the odd tinkle of goats bells in the distance and birds singing their hearts out.

Everything you need to make the holiday one to remember is supplied as well as a few extras that the owner threw in to make us feel at home.

There's a small but very friendly restaurant in the village, which is just a five minute walk from the villa. Perfect for a shandy or two.

For a bit more nightlife it's worth a trip into the town of Skala, it's about 5km away so a car or taxi is needed. I've seen a bus pass by but haven't worked out the times to use them. We did attempt the walk to Katelios which is about 3km away, certainly one way to keep fit but I think we let ourselves down again with another shandy or two

The owners are a couple called Mandy & Tony, just wanted to say a big thanks to you both. I hope we can book again next year

A lovely villa with four good size bed rooms and also child friendly. Double bedroom down stairs leading on to the pool is suitable for anyone with disabilities. Also a joining large shower room.
On suite bathroom as a bath and shower which was great for the kid's. Spotlessly clean and friendly staff only a phone call away. We had a lovely stay. The children loved the pool the best. The beach close by was also family friendly soft sands and shallow waters. A tranquil place not over crowed and traditional Greek kanteena. A car is needed to reach the local town of skala and katlieois. Lovely places to eat with lots of different taverners to choose from. We are all looking forward to going back again in August 2016.

A gorgeous villa with quality fixtures and furnishings. A great pool and lovely views. A car is essential but only minutes from a beautiful beach which is perfect for small children and adults alike. Nearby Starla and katelios bay have lovely bars and restaurants. A fantastic week. Thank you - we'd book again

“Great Getaway.”

Really lovely Villa, well furnished and good sized accomodation,and very close to a beautiful beach.
I would advise you hire a car, as its around a 15 to 20 minute drive to local amenities, which provide you with a good selection of restaurants, bars and shopping facilties, but on top of that, its well worth taking a few trips around the Island as the views are absolutely breathtaking.
The Villa's pool kept the kids happy during the days we stayed in, and in the evening the BBQ was great to relax with our friends and enjoy the sun going down.
Highly recommend this if you want to get away for some peace and relaxtion, but still want the option to be close enough for other forms of entertainment.

Dear Maria

As you can see from all the previous reviews the villa and our service has always been 5 stars. On this occasion a mix up with your arrival date meant that the villa was not thoroughly cleaned for your arrival which was shortly after the previous guests vacated. However, as soon as you contacted me, the mistake was realised and our cleaner was despatched straight away and the villa was cleaned and the linen all replaced.

Despite this, you said you were still not happy with the results and so the cleaners were asked to go again and I understand that you are now happy with the second clean.

I have apologised directly to you and again make a full apology for not having the villa ready for your arrival and by way of recompense, you should have had some wine delivered to you. Once again, I can only apologise as its both our aim and the team in Kefalonia that look after the villa, to have it fully ready for guests arrival.

So that this mistake is not repeated I have implemented a system between myself and Kefalonia that double checks arrival and departure dates.

If I could wind the clock back so that this did not happen I certainly would but we are all human and mistakes do occasionally happen. As you can see, we have not abandoned you, but instead reacted immediately to resolve the situation which I hope proves that this was a genuine mistake and not a case of not caring for our guests.

I hope you can accept that my apology is genuine and that the wine makes up for the few hours that you had to put up with the villa not being ready.

Could I please ask though that in future, you respond to owners emails or contacts through the booking site as I sent you several messages to which no response was received. It was only for this reason that the cot was not available at your arrival. The cot is stored safely in the garage and only brought out when guests request it. Again, we managed to resolve this within a few hours but please, in future make any additional requests like this clear in your booking to avoid future misunderstanding.

Tony
