Our stay at Chloe's at the end of October was PERFECT! Chloe was so kind and considerate. The flat was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. It was amazing to have a view of the sea and blue sky from the bed! We loved having the secluded sandy beach at the bottom of the garden and swam everyday. It was really quiet but that suited us perfectly. We didn t hire a car but did a different beautiful coastal walk from the house every day. It was just the quiet retreat we needed and we have returned rested and refreshed. Thank you so much Chloe!

Chloe made us feel right at home, she handled all of our questions with precision and expertise - even meeting us after our flight arrived late and was flexible with our first-day arrival. She even helped us to order dinner since no one in our group knew the area or spoke Greek.
The house is very out of the way and we had trouble with the address as there is no house number in the village, I suggest asking for the GPS coordinates to find the house easier. However, being this far away from the town was exactly what our group needed to relax from our lives in London. The home was clean and well-kept when we arrived. The walk down to the beach was a little rocky because of previous storms, but the beach itself was fantastic and relaxing - it also functioned as a private area for our group of 7 people (and our two visitors who were staying elsewhere for their two-year anniversary).
I would gladly stay here again on my next vacation to Greece.
Chloe was a truly fantastic host, who went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and that we felt welcome. She went above and beyond what was expected from her, including letting us use her phone or offering us lifts. We were incredibly grateful for her warmth and generosity, as she was always on hand if we needed anything.
We liked that the house was a little way out of Skala, and the apartment had everything we needed to make sure we could just relax there without having to go anywhere further than the beach. We didn't have a car, and neither me nor my friend drives, but we made it work by either walking into Skala or getting a cab from the top of the track that joins the house to the main road.
The apartment itself had absolutely everything we needed, and was spacious and cool enough for us to really relax. The house, its proximity to the amazing beach and the atmosphere of the place really made the holiday.
Consiglio vivamente questo alloggio. La casa era esattamente come descritta nel profilo, curata, pulita e con tutto l'occorrente.
La posizione rispetto al mare è assolutamente invidiabile, si arriva in spiaggia in 2 minuti a piedi. Chloe e la sua famiglia sono stati molto gentili e disponibili. Assolutamente da scegliere se si vuole staccare la spina nel relax di Cefalonia.
We had a wonderful time staying at Rooms by the Beach. My boyfriend and I stayed in apartment 3 (even though it was bigger than what we needed). The apartment was a great size with a balconies off of every room with amazing views of the sea. There's a pathway just down from the house that leads to a quiet beach. We loved getting up and swimming each day. The house is about 40 minutes walk to town. We did get lost a couple of times when walking in the dark, but soon figured out a way from the beach that made things easier.
Chloe was a wonderful host. She was very accommodating with our arrival times when our flight was delayed. She answered any questions we had and recommended an amazing restaurant in town which was one of our favourites.
Skala is really lovely to base yourself when visiting Kefalonia. There are loads of nice restaurants, Captains Bar was great fun serving delicious cocktails. The beaches are beautiful and not too busy. We had a car for 3 days which was a good amount of time to see most of the island. There is a bus from town, but it only makes about 3 trips so if you wanted to see the sights, a car is probably a good idea!
We hope to be back again some time soon.
We stayed in Chloe's place for 5 days in July 2014. It was beautiful, just as described. The veranda looks out onto the sea and there is a small private beach a short walk away. Skala is a 5 minute drive down the road where there are bars and restaurants meaning that the apartment is in a peaceful and secluded location but within easy reach of amenities.
Chloe was very helpful and came to meet us at the petrol station so that we could find where we were going.
If I am ever back in Kefalonia I shall be sure to stay here again and will recommend to others.
We stayed for four nights in Apt 2. It was so much fun!
We met Tassos, Chloe's brother, at the petrol station nearby so he could show us the way to the house in our hire car. The house is quite off the beaten track so it's good to hire a car if you can.
The place is really lovely, very relaxed and peaceful with beautiful gardens and a nice big patio to have dinner and watch the stars from. It has everything you need to make big dinners, and a coffee maker for breakfast.
Chloe's mum left us a big bowl of apricots from their garden, some lemons and some homemade jam which was a lovely welcome. She also gave me a bunch of dried lavender to put in my wardrobe at home which was so nice.
Chloe and her brother Tassos are both great and we enjoyed hanging out with them one night to watch the Greece vs Costa Rica World Cup match!
The beach is really secluded - we saw about four other people there in the four days we went, and the water is so clear and lovely to swim in. You can swim to Skala beach if it takes your fancy.
Overall, we had a brilliant time and will hopefully go back at some point - maybe to the bigger apartment so we can go with a group of friends!
