“Peaceful Zoe”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Zoe from late August for 10 days, a family of 5 + boyfriend, our kids in their late teens, early 20s. Waking up to the wonderful view each morning was fabulous and listening to the sounds of the sea. There was plenty of room and we were very comfortable. Pool was great and open until 10 p.m. which we could enjoy on a warm evening. Sea shoes recommended for the beaches on the island which were gorgeous, would also recommend see kayarking. Sarah And Nick looked after us very well and can recommend Sarah's marmalade and rose syrup which were scrummy. A welcome pack was waiting for us on arrival which we thoroughly appreciated. We can very much recommend Zoe, it is in a lovely location and central to lots of beautiful places on kefalonia. Zoe also had a small private garden where we enjoyed a bbq and sunbathing. We hope to return one day soon.

We found Zoe apartment through Facebook, we hoped it would be as good as the reviews and the pictures and we were most definitely not disappointed.
The initial contact and booking were so simple, I was advised Nick the manager would contact us prior to us arriving. Nick did email us and sent us all the info we needed including superb directions of how to get from the airport to the apartment.
Nick and Sarah met us on our arrival and made us feel so welcome.
The apartment is excellent, it is really spacious our teenage sons were able to have the whole of the downstairs as their own.
Upstairs, walking onto the balcony, the sea view was beautiful, sitting there with a glass of wine on an evening was bliss.
The apartment has everything you need and is furnished to a high standard.
We stayed for a week and non of us wanted to come home.
I would most definitely recommended Zoe apartment and we will visit again

Zoe Beach House has great views over the bay with the beach just across the road from the house. The whole house was furnished to really high standards with lots of personal touches. When we arrived, we were met by the property managers Sarah and Nick. They were so friendly, courteous and made great efforts to make sure we felt right at home. They have a good knowledge of the area and recommended beaches, restaurants, places to sightsee and bakeries– all of which were great. A hire is recommended to get around to the beaches and other towns. However, when eating out in Sami of an evening (lots of restaurants), we simply walked along the beach front which took about 20 minutes.

Just returned from a great holiday staying in Zoe beach house: so grateful in a heat wave for air con in the house and the sea breeze. We swam every day in the sea opposite the house and visited nearby Antisamos and Karavomilos beaches too. Local shops meant we didn't need to go into Sami to the supermarket; though prices were a bit higher it was worth it. The agents could not have been more helpful. We hired a car to see more of the island though the mountain roads were hair-raising in places! Would certainly come back - perhaps earlier or later in the year to avoid 36' temperatures.

“Excellent house with Sami bay views right next to sea”

We had a lovely relaxing week at Zoe house which fully met our expectations. All of the arrival details and other support during the week was excellent thanks to the local hosts nic and Sarah. The apartment is very well furnished and has a great balcony overlooking Sami bay which is very relaxing. There was plenty of space across the two floors for us and our teenagers, who also liked the good wifi. The sea is only 15m from Zoe house and is great for a swim any time of day in the clear waters. The local bakery and coffee house was great and also has a good rear balcony. We had a hire car to get around which was very useful as there are good restaurants in Sami and agia efimia, and also allowed us to get to anti samos beach which is more lively. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to return on day.

Extremely well appointed and comfortable. People managing the flats were approachable and very pleasant. The sea was right next to the flat and beautiful to swim in (beaches in Kefalonia are rarely sandy so take swimming shoes) and the pool was small but well maintained with recliners and a shower. The house is near local shops and a great bakery and Sami is a short walk away. We had a fantastic electric storm which we watched from the balcony - unforgettable.

“Spectacular Sami Sunrise”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

Have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Zoe Beach house. It was a sanctuary from our everyday lives. The Villa itself was a home from home with all the amenities and comforts of home. It was beautifully decorated and easy on the eye, making it a marvellous place to be able to relax.

The Sea was just across the small road, so we could step out of our garden, through our private gate, for a cooling swim every morning. The sun was on the balcony until lunch time, then the private garden for another couple of hours, where sun loungers were provided. The pool was quiet most of the time, so if the sea was a little rough in the afternoon, you could go for a quiet relaxing swim.

It was perfectly positioned to be a comfortable 25 minute walk into Sami, where there are numerous restaurants to try. Saying that, I was more than happy to prepare a meal in the well equipped kitchen and sit on the balcony overlooking the perfect view of the sea and mountains.

We were made to feel very welcome there by Sarah and Nick. We were provided with the best welcome pack that we have ever received. I would definitely wait to see what is there prior to doing your own shop. Really liked Sarah's homemade relish and marmalade.

We usually never go back to the same place twice but I think we may make an exception for Zoe house!
