Dear Tony - We take very seriously providing our Guests with a great Holiday & when we receive such feedback. We naturally check everything from the Owners / Hosts to ourselves. The area is Correct on the AIRbnb Map - it is the area Kefalonia Pessada and the VILLA IS SECLUDE IN A QUIET AREA 400 METERS FROM THE BEACH - AS THE VILLA STANDS ALONE IT'S IN A REMOTE AREA so we are not sure what you mean by noise as it is Secluded, the Photos are ALL direct from the Owner and reflect the Villa the Villa is only 5 years old since Built - The Kitchen is new and the photos shown are of the Kitchen - We do supply a DVD player but we do not supply the DVD and TV is Satellite so there is a vast choice, as for the weeds in the Garden after 5 months the weather rained on your trip - All our Villas are maintained. As you were obviously unhappy with things you should of contact online concierge as we are here to help in All ways......... Please see reviews from Other Clients and we keep a close watch on ALL.
1. We stayed for two weeks at the end of August and we had a fantastic time! We were met at the airport by Stelios who very kindly showed us around Pessada before taking us to the villa. He supplied us with phone numbers so that we could contact him anytime should a problem arise. This was a great personal service! The villa was perfect for our family of four and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Pessada is a jewel of a place and the villa is set in the heart of a lovely Greek community. The small, quiet, sandy beach was a short walk away and we spent most of our time there. There are other larger beaches a short drive away if you want watersports. Lassi is approx 20 minutes away and an excellent place to visit. We ate at the local tavernas, a short drive away from the villa, we would highly recommend Ellionas. There are large supermarkets 10 minutes drive away towards Argostoli, or for fresh open markets visit Argostoli a further 5 minutes away. Cafe Latte is owned by Stelios and is situated in a small square in Argostoli where he makes the most amazing milkshakes. We would thoroughly reccommend this villa and location and we hope to visit again soon.
2. Our family of 5 (children ages 6, 13 and 15) have just returned from a week at this lovely villa (our first time renting a villa) and we all had a fabulous time. It was most comfortable and the pool had much use! It is situated in a very peaceful location with lovely views and so it was a most relaxing holiday.
The nearest beach was small and very quiet and more than met our expectations, and other beaches and pretty villages were a short drive away.
The host and his family were most hospitable, escorting us from the airport to the villa and offering us use of room and facilities at their apartments near the airport on our last day, as we had a late night flight. Stelios also gave us his phone number so that if we needed anything, we could just call him. A most genuinely lovely family!
I would definately return again in the future.
