“Natural, bloomy and cheap”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We stayed here for 6 days. It's a little bit difficoult to find, but it worth the time bacause it's surrounded by the green and the flower. In the night is very quiet and if you stay in the ground floor you don't need air conditioning. Owners are very very kind, expecially the grandma. Rooms are kleened on alternate days.
The only lack concern the bathroom, wich is small and the shower does not have the tent, but it's not a big deal.

Room Tip: Room number 9 is the best

The first review that is on this site I feel has obviously been made by someone who hasn't been to Greece before. Greek appartments are mostly basic and in most of Greece you have to put your toilet paper in the bin and not down the toilet.

We have been going to Greece for the last 15 years and have visited many of the islands and stayed in many self catering appartments; Vasilis Studios is one of the nicest we have stayed in. The owners are friendly and the studios are exceptionally clean and spacious. If you want a quiet holiday with friendly locals this is the place for you.

Kos is not one of the most beautiful islands but the people are the friendliest. It is true there is no bar or recepion at Vasilis but this is why we chose these appartments; we were never kept awake at any time of the day or night because of noise in the three weeks that we stayed there. There is always someone on hand if you need something; these people were really helpful. Our room had three beds in it and we spilt a drink on the one that we weren't using; the owner (lady) said this was no problem and just changed the sheets.

There is a walk down to the beach but it only takes about 15 minutes and most of it is on the flat; there is a small incline when going back up to the appartments. The walk is nice; you can pick fresh figs from the trees and you get to know the locals as you are passing; they love you to try and talk to them in Greek, even if you just try and say 'Good morning (Kalimera) or good evening (Kalinichta)!

Kefalos is not expensive either and there are some really good resturants; Harry's (short for Haralambos), Captain John's, Maria's; all did different specialities. We found the 2nd supermarket near Captain John's one of the cheapest. All in all we had a fatastic time in excellent appartments and would definately return to Kos and Vasilis Studios.

Arrived at Kos airport, then took 2 1/2 hours for the coach to arrive at Valisilis Apartments. All 16 of the apartments are 'studios' with 3 beds in each. No way could 3 adults sleep in such a small room.
The rooms (studios) are very clean and freshly painted, not a mark on any wall or anywhere I could see. BUT the toilet is a shower wet room, no shower curtain toilet paper has NOT to be put down the loo but in a bin the bedroom floor is very slipy when wet.
Beware, (I had booked this holiday with Thomas Cook, it seems that they have the sole contract with most of the self caterers in Kefalos, the representative (Georgia) was just short of usless, the fact she was an Essex girl did not help matters she just lived up to the dim profile of Essex girls - blond and dim. with her prolific, repetative Yea Yea to every question that was ever put to her). At Vasilis the representative of (Thomas Cook) would not assit anyone to discover how much extra the Air Con was, I was charged E5 per night (14 nights = E70) others were charged E40 for 7 nights or E60 for 14 nights. Where two shared the charge was per person, so for 14 nights it was E140 - no one but the daughter spoke any English, when I tried to get the owner of another apartment block to interpret for us - the old man (owner) went into a rage and started shouting and swearing (in broken English and Greek). The T.V. is E20 a week with only BBC World News in English. Plenty of Bars have T.V. for the football etc..
To get to the Beach one has to walk close to a mile down hill on a poorly maintained road, no pavement. (The nearest supermarket (open 7am - 10pm 7 days a week) is on the same road as the beach 1/2 way to the beach (VERY Expensive) the better stocked and cheaper supermarkets are on the beach road 3 of them all close together).
The Vasilis has no facilities at all, no bar, pool or even a reception area as we all had to be out of the room by 12 noon and our pick up was 10pm so we all went to Yiannis appartment (see seperate review)
