Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Anna, I would just like to thank you. The villa was excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly. My husband was very surprised at the meal, on our arrival. That was memorable. Please thank Mrs Litsa for all her help. Our holiday in Kefalonia was perfect. Once again, many thanks.

Nice villa but not as perfect as images.

  • 4 of 5

My fiance (now husband!) and I stayed at Villa Alexandra a couple of weeks ago, before moving to another villa to get married. Overall, the villa was very nice, but I found the photographs a little misleading. The villas looked a very high standard, but there were little things that let it down, such as a door handle falling off for the master bedroom, water dripping through the ceiling in the downstairs toilet and mainly no information on how to work anything in the villa. We asked about how we turn the hot water on and no one got back to us regarding this, eventually we found a panel behind a picture in the living room that had one switch off, so we assumed this was correct and luckily we were right. It would of been nice to of been told how to use the dishwasher etc, as all the buttons were in greek.

However, the week was lovely. The pool was gorgeous and the view very pretty. We had a supermarket next door and this was awesome and we went several times a day. We felt very safe and secure as the few villas together have a gate at the front. It is also a very good location for walking to and from town and the beach. A little tip - the door locks even without the key, so be careful not to go out without it, as you won't be able to get back in. The cleaner was very nice and helpful, she came a few times and even helped us put down the massive baby bed we did not want. She turned our towels into swans and flowers when she found out we were getting married, which was so sweet. She also got rid of all our rubbish without us even realising she was there.

There are many delicious restaurants near by, Old Times on the way up away from Skala is brilliant and the other delicious ones are in the centre of town. There is lots of choice and most things are really cheap. The only expensive thing we found was suncream, 12euro+ a bottle, so try to take enough in luggage if you can, as it is hot hot hot! I would recommend staying here and overall we had a lovely week.

Wonderful holiday

  • 4 of 5

Overall the villa is lovely and the outdoor area was fantastic. It's perfectly situated for the beach as well as a short walk to the main square. This was our 5th visit to Kefalonia and 4th to Skala so we knew what a treat we were in for. It has however become much more built up with some noise from local bars but the villa was well soundproofed.

On the whole it was well equipped although lacked pots and pans! And the showers could do with updating - but aside we had a wonderful relaxing time never venturing very far from The wonderful pool and garden area.

The concierge service met us at the airport to ensure our onward journey went smoothly and visited us at the Villa and gave us some really useful local information that would be really useful if you were less familiar with the area.

Absolutely beautiful villa - and excellent service!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holiday in this gorgeous villa. The view was wonderful and the villa perfect for our needs. The housekeeper Mrs Marinella is extremely helpful and provided us with excellent service throughout our stay. My only suggestion would be to equip the kitchen with a few more saucepans as there were only two.

We had an excellent holiday and highly recommend this villa.

Good villa in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay in Skala and we chose this villa for it's location which is just a 10 minute walk from the town centre and right on the beach. The villa has a great outdoor space and a lovely pool, great for spending lazy days just chilling out. The villa itself it well laid out and comfortable. One the whole it is well equipped and maintained but there are some limitations (lack of pans meaning it was difficult to cater in the villa for ourselves) and a few minor maintenance issues. The villa comes with a maid service once per week where the linen and towels are changed and the villa cleaned. The pool was also cleaned and the outdoor area maintained every few days too. Overall this is a good villa. What sells this villa is it's location for the beach and the town. The addition of the Ammos beach bar about 1 minute away is great. There is some building work near to the villa which may obscure the view slightly when finished but we were informed the buildings were going to be a supermarket, cafe and a taverna - all amenities that will add to the overall location of the villa.

The booking also came with a concierge service meaning we were met at the airport which was nice. We were disappointed when we complained about the lack of pans (just one massive pan and two tiny pans) to be informed no additional ones would be provided - luckily our friends were staying in the villa next door and they lent us a pan for cooking for our two young children.

Bit of a disaster!

  • 1 of 5

Villa Alexandra had been recommended to us by friends who stayed in the villa next door last August (2015) and all the pictures and details sent to us looked perfect! Sadly the reality was completely different - instead of a lovely field between us and the sea, there was a building site under full construction..... Building work started most days at 0745 with compressors, concrete mixers etc., and sometimes did not finish until 6.30pm and so totally ruined our stay. We got in contact with the person responsible who initially said that it was not their problem and they didn't have to notify us about this building work and were not prepared to find us alternative accommodation. So we took matters into our own hands, found somewhere else to stay for the last 4 days and asked for a refund - which we did receive almost immediately. Besides this major problem, there were quite a few minor problems at the villa - like the hot water not coming through in the shower upstairs - which we could have coped with if there had not been the major problem with the building site in front of the villa. They have a list of all these and hopefully 1) aren't letting it out while the building work is going on and 2) have attended to the other problems.

Owner's Response: Dear mrs Lou-Lou Troup, we understand that building works were not the best thing for someone who wants to relax. But we could not really do something about it. We explained you that the owner of the land had promised that would stop on 1st of May but due to health issues he delayed. You reply that this was not your problem and that you wanted to move to a same villa like Alexandra. We informed you that we had no other available villa and we refund you immediately.

Car: recommended

The villa is located at tourist resort of Skala on the south eastern tip of the island, at an enviable location being only 30 metres from the long Blue Flag beach at Skala, and 50m from the closest tavernas and mini markets. Skala itself is just a gentle stroll away where you will find a wide choice of restaurants suiting every taste together with a number of gift shops and mini markets. Night-life in Skala is fairly low key but there are a number of cafe bars that cater for those wanting something a bit more lively. Without a doubt the highlight of this resort is the beach which was recently awarded the coveted Blue Flag. With the sand gently shelving into the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Ionian sea, sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, and beach bars serving snacks and drinks throughout the day it’s the perfect place to relax. For those of you wanting a little bit more excitement why not try one of the range of water sports.

Other Activities: Traditional dances, glass bottom boat BBQ beach parties

Golf: Mini golf at the market centre in Skala village.
