I came with a girlfriend. Left with a fiance! It was a perfect week that we shall treasure forever. Nick and Sarah arranged for me to propose on Mellisani Lake and guess what... She said yes! They were the most gracious hosts. Very helpful and informative. The apartment has everything you could wish for. Perfect apartment, perfect holiday. Just like the other review, it felt like a perfect honeymoon too! Tips: the restaurant named The Local in Agia Effimia and Zepbath fish restaurant in Karavamylos (i.e. in the area itself). Remember to order the local Retsina (lovely tasting white wine)...

“A quiet, relaxing, romantic get away - perfect for our honeymoon.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The property managers, Nick and Sarah, offered us a warm and friendly welcome, meeting the taxi as soon as we arrived in Karivomilos. They are a lovely, easy-going, English couple, who have a wealth of local knowledge and guidance, and are readily available, but totally unintrusive. A tasty little hamper, including fresh juice, local bread and home-made jam awaited us, so we could settle in without rushing to find the nearest shop - along with a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate our honeymoon. A great start.

The pictures look lovely, but they do not not do the Lida property or the location justice. It is simply beautiful. We spent a wonderful weeks honeymoon here, enjoying the stunning scenery and amazing food. We enjoyed a beer/meal on the balcony each day and spent as much time there as on the beach, we loved it so much. The couple of local restaurants in Karavomylos are excellent and slightly further away in Sami, an enjoyable 20 minute walk along the beach, where the choice and quality offer more than enough for most tastes. There was lots to discover on a moped/quad bike, rented from RoadRunners in Agia Efimia. Horse riding in the mountains through the Bavarian Stables was a treat in the early morning sun too. A ferry trip to the island of Ithaka was a relaxing day out, with more great food, and swimming in the warm turquoise sea.

We highly recommend a holiday in The Lida Beach House, Kefalonia.

This is the best equipped holiday home we ever stayed in. The apartment is beautiful and have everything we needed. More over, the interior and the atmosphere created are very special and we relaxed every moment of our holiday. The pool is a good size for swimming and was constantly clean.
Lida apartment`s in Karavomilos, near to Sami, from where all parts of the island are easily accessible. We've had a nice day in Fiscardo, and often we were at the Mirtos beach. Local tavernas are excellent.
Nick and Sarah were fantastic. They even provided an welcome pack for when we got there, milk, eggs, bread, butter, homemade sweet, wine and cookies!
Еverything was perfect!
We hope to return again soon.

“Lovely Stay in Good Location”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

We have just had a lovely week in Lida Beach House. The location is brilliant for seeing the island and nowhere is too far a drive away. We've seen the whole island. We had a nice day in Fiscardo, and a lovely drive over to Ithaka. Easy walking distance to Sami for restaurants, our favourite being Familia, with a modern greek twist. The agents, Sarah and Nick couldn't have been more helpful. The Drogatti cave and underground lake are on your door step and worth a visit.
Brilliant apartment, with pool right on the sea, evening sun on the terraces and restaurants an easy walk. Would recommend. The apartment has a lot of space for a 1 bed.
Thanx

“Cosy and beautiful”

The apartment is cosy and just beautiful! We travelled with our 10 month old daughter and the owner took care of everything (baby cot, high chair and even the pot :-), so we had absolutely everything we needed to have a relaxing family time.
Bottle of wine, great desert, bread, eggs and cookies were waiting for us upon arrival. We were pleased!!!
Moreover, I shall say that the picture can not even show how great the property is.
Needless to say, that Nick and Sarah are doing a great job and ... much more (jams and candles) It all comes with a package :-) What else to wish?!
