The place is great, it has all you need. It was clean, well located and our hosts were very nice and friendly. Ksamil is beautiful and I would recommend this place!
Lorena and her whole family did an amazing job of making us feel right at home in Ksamil. They were very quick to answer our questions prior to arrival and gave us some good hints about getting to Ksamil via bus that saved us a bunch of money. When we arrived we were greeted almost immediately at the bus stop and were taken to the apartment which is about 5 minutes away. Upon arriving we were treated to the traditional Albanian greeting of sweets, raki, and coffee. After letting us recover from the journey they were quick to provide numerous recommendations regarding restaurants, activities, and sights to see. During our stay they treated us like part of their family and made us regret having to leave so early. The apartment itself was awesome for us as a couple. The beds were excellent and comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped to handle our needs for breakfast and lunch. We also loved eating breakfast out in the courtyard, visiting with the family, and seeing the cat and dog that sometimes were around. Located minutes away from the beaches and numerous restaurants, it's in a prime location and we definitely plan on returning.
Our experience was amazing. We stayed for 30 Days. They greeted us warmly, made us feel at home. We had the small studio with everything we needed: nice bed, pillows, towels, kitchen & utensils, TV, & wifi. Nice patio and table. Clean linens and towels weekly. Surprises of dessert, cheese and spinach pastries, olive oil and flowers. We also enjoyed there dog Fifi and cat Motts :)
The reservation was canceled 93 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We are a young American couple traveling with our 2 year-old son. We arrived by car and spoke with one person who arranged for Fatjon (the son of the owners of the apartments) to meet us and bring us to the apartment. He was our main contact while we were there and he was really helpful and generous, too, even bringing us over to his favorite restaurant - Hotel Joni - to introduce us to the owner/manager (note: everyone seems to know everyone in this small seaside village).
There are two apartments connected to the house - one smaller, one larger - owned by a very sweet local couple. Despite having no common language, they were very generous and hospitable, making sure everything was alright with the room, offering tea, fresh Albanian doughnuts and other delights. We had the smaller apartment, not realizing there was a larger one (the one in most of the pictures). It was very cozy with a double bed, a single bed, and a small kitchenette (fridge, sink, microwave & electric burners), though the bathroom was small (we aren't exactly large people but felt cramped showering and using the toilet). The AC (heat for us - we stayed in April) worked well as did Wi-Fi internet and hot water.
The location is excellent - 2 minutes to the closest beach and within 5-7 minutes of multiple beaches and good restaurants.
We hope to come back again (and stay in the larger apartment :) Thanks to the hosts for a very pleasant experience!
L'appartement est situé à 5 minutes à pied de la plage et du centre de Velipoja.
Et pour nous, c'était idéal car le bord de mer était très vivant très tard dans la soirée.
Nous avons ainsi pu dormir en toute tranquillité tout en profitant des lieux et de la région de Shkoder.
Velipoja est proche de tout ce qu'il y a à voir dans cette région, qui vaut vraiment le détour.
Lorena nous a fourni des informations en réponse à toutes nos questions de façon très agréable et aimable. Nous avons croisé son mari, Jimmy, mais hélas nous n'avons pas pu discuter avec Lorena car nous nous sommes seulement aperçus le jour de notre départ.
A conseiller pour la première étape d'une visite de l'Albanie.
Very nice apartment near the sea. Special thanks to Shyqyri who was such a kind man and helped us with everything (even a scary spider!) All the best!
We were initially shown to a much smaller room. After some discussion with the host this was resolved and we moved into the room shown in the photos.
The apartments are really close to the beach and Ksamil is a great base for surrounding sites.
The air con was intermittent and there was an issue with the toilet somehow becoming full whilst we were out for the day. Note - these were not raised with the host as by the time we realized it was a pattern we were leaving. I am sure that they would have been fixed if we had raised it.
We stayed in Ksamili for three days in July. The apartment itself is very nice, very clean. Ksamili is a very nice little town with lovely beaches and clear water.
The area around the apar is located by the road just when you enter Ksamili and there is still quite a lot of construction going on.
