How to reach to apartment:
From Tirana to Saranda at 22:00 bus departing from Ura e Tabakëve (8 hr travel) ticket around 10 euro.
From Corfu/Greece to Saranda ferries depart once a day at 9 am.
if there is bad weather condition then chances are too low for any ferry to depart, for more about ferries from Corfu to Saranda klick on (website hidden)
From Saranda to Ksamil it takes less than 20 min and minibuses depart every less than one hour.
Excellent location right on the beach with the clearest waters imaginable. The terrace is divine for sitting and enjoying the weather.
The host family (Shkelqim only administers the apartment) is super friendly and accommodating.
Be advised that this apartment has one bedroom and two fold out beds in the kitchen/living room.
And if you are looking for peace and quiet this might not be the place for you as the neighboring beach clubs play music until around midnight during high season.
We have been at Shkelqims place for one night only so i can not say much about the beach, the village and the surrounding. The appartment itself is a beautiful place crowed with greens and flowers and is directly at the beach. Shkelqim and his familiy are very friendly and helpful, his mother made some sort of pancakes for breakfast. It was really delicious, we ate the whole plate. Thanks, Shkelqim.
Shkelqim is a friend of the house owners who helps out with managing the bookings etc, so don't be surprised when it's not him you'll meet (I think he lives in Tirana)! But the lovely family that owns this house are great. Great location near most beaches, fantastic view from your own little cosy balcony, and you have everything you need there. We thought it was so cosy we decide to have some meals just right there on the balcony instead of venturing out.
One small thing, is the confusion of "check out" time, we kind of were just told in the morning to hurry up because the next visitors would be coming.
Maybe good to agree on a time with them for when you "check out"...or have check in check out times. In any case, this was very very minor, it's excellent! :) Thank you!
Dear Rudina, Just to make something clear, check out is by 11:00, and we never rush our guests to leave before that time. Because check in for next guests is after 13:00. As i remember you came to Ksamil one day earlier than you booked in airbnb, because we agreed to host you somewhere nearby for one night, and then next day we would accommodate you here. So, that next day when you had to leave the other room, and go to the this property you really booked, you took the key and left for having fun until 15:00 i guess. So by that time of course i had to ask you on the phone to come back and take your bags and go to the property you really booked. Other than this we were really happy to host a real actress, a singer like you, in both flats we manage online :) We would love to host you again. Thank you
petite location au bord de l'eau, que demander de mieux? très bon accueil et très hotes tres aimables!
I would like to recommend that wonderful place, cozy apartment just above the send beach with all you need, even barbeque. Special regards for the host, who are such a wonderfull people, always helpfull and heartfelt people.
Me, my boyfriend and our dog stayed in this lovely house by the sea in Ksamil which is a nice sea village in the south of Albania. The house is just a few metres from one of the best beach and a walking distance to some nice restaurant by the sea. The house is simple, basic but clean and it has a big terrace where you can relax or cook with the barbeque. The owners of the house do not speak english or italian but they have been so nice, generous and friendly that it has been very easy for us to understand each other. We really felt welcome and are happy to have had the opportunity to meet them. I hightly reccommend this house to everybody. Thank you Shkelquim
We stayed for 2 weeks on the upper Floor (2nd) of this lovely little house at the seaside.The flat is simply perfect! A clean apartment with 2 sleeping rooms. Don’t expect a huge bathroom or kitchen; the furnishing is really basic, but more than compensated by a big terrace with beautiful sea view. Use the BBQ and forget about modern cooking.
The owners are extremely nice and helpful hosts. They even offered us some self baked fresh bread – excellent! Communication is a bit difficult because they only speak Albanese, but during summer time their children stay in the house. They also are very kind and interesting people, always prepared to have a chat and give you any advice.
We spent a wonderful time there and recommend this place to all people going on holidays to discover real life without too much luxuries.Excellent apartment, great location and a host who knows looking after his guests matters.Highly recommended.
