We stayed here 10 years ago and were thrilled with the chance to return. The villa is better than ever and genuinely wheelchair accessible (even the pool). Nothing is too much trouble for Kat who raced round looking after us, driving us to restaurants (so we could freely sample to wine) and even doing airport runs for us as we had family coming and going. The villa is very comfortable (as are the beds) and all 3 generations of the family were very happy. The kitchen is very well kitted out and we had fresh produce on our doorstep in the mornings. The olives from the farm fixed up by Kat’s Mother are amazing! Hoping it won’t be 10 years until we can go again!

This villa is just fantastic and spectacular! Just as described. Especially the host, Kat, is just wonderful and so helpful! She picked us up from the airport and dropped us of again, including a breath taking tour through the island! Thumbs up! We highly recommend this house ❤️

Gorgeous place to stay. We booked it to stay with our kids, groomsmen and bridesmaids for a week around our beach wedding. The owner Kat was very friendly and caring starting in the preparation stage and even more so during our stay. She helped with the transfer from and to the airport and made the whole stay including an on-site cooking/dinner event such a great experience. The villa is really excessively well equipped. Starting from kitchen equipment to snorkeling equipment to beach toys for the kids. And also the gym is very well equipped (much better than shown on the Foto) and suitable for someone who likes a workout. Fabulous location. Remote but unbelievable scenery. We can only highly recommend this accommodation.

Great location with all kinds of expected and unexpected service components. Accommodation made to relax and hang loose with family and friends. Plenty of space, huge pool, great furniture and plenty of stuff for activities and sports available free of charge. Even more impressive than the location itself is Katerina, the owner, herself. Unbelievable service orientation towards her guests, full of power and creativity which is present within the house and all over the place. We had the wonderful impression to be highly welcome from the very first moment we arrived and met Katerina. We did not only fell in love with the hideaway itself but have been very impressed by the friendliness, the hospitality and the person of Katerina. We definite will come back to this magic environment

My family and I went to Greece in May 2018. I'm writing this review now because it this place is still in all of our minds to this day. It is still one of the best Villas I stayed in. The hosts (George and Kat) were amazing, friendly, and incredibly generous. The Villa itself is located in a secluded area and it's simply just wonderful. The pool is massive and was filled from water from the sea through a pump (at the time I visited), The rooms and villa were spacious and there's a lot of places to just sit and lounge around and admire the amazing views. People say Oia has the best sunset, but I think that's a crock of BS. This villa was where we witnessed the best sunset during our entire trip to Greece. This is definitely a place we would come back to when we visit Greece again!

We were two Familys with three children each...There are no words to describe this spot! Absolutely gorgeous villa with no wishes left. Very clean and even better than described on the pictures.... Kat‘s a perfect host - try’s to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as it could be - nothing to complain at all - we‘ll surely come back ! Remarkable place - if you could go there: do it ! One of the best - if not the best - places we‘ve ever been on holidays...

We loved this villa with its fantastic amenities and “off the beaten track” location. It is a beautifully designed modern villa with a stunning pool and plenty to keep the kids occupied (we were three families with 7 teenagers). Kat was a superb host and we all enjoyed visiting the animals at the farm. The villa is well equipped (including pool table, table tennis, gym, well equipped kitchen...). Highly recommended!

I came back two days ago from a week holiday on the beautiful Greek island of Kefalonia. We were eight adults and six children. We stayed at the Skinos Llivatos Ecco Villa. I still have “stars” in my eyes from the dream days we spent there. Kat, the owner, is a genuinely lovely person, who did everything she could do for us to enjoy the perfect holiday. The villa has five en-suite bedrooms, a large kitchen with every utensil you could think of. For instance, there was a Nespresso type coffee machine there, plus a French press and a machine for filtered coffee. The lounge and dinning area have a lot of space for 12 people to enjoy it. The village is decorated with love, good taste and it was very clean. It does not look like a “holiday rental house”. It seems like a real home, full of character. We are all missing the great time we had there. I recommend it highly for a large group of people with children.

I don’t normally write reviews but had to for this one. This villa is AMAZING!! It is beautifully decorated, clean and has all the necessities for a family. The owner (Kat) is warm, welcoming and went out of her way to accommodate us and even cooked a welcome dinner which we were touched about! The outdoor area is like a paradise, flowers everywhere, swings and a slide for children and lots of place to play. If you want to have a holiday away from noise, busy city life and switch off this is the perfect location. You need a car if you want to see other parts of the island.
