About the property

Jacaranda is part of a new seafront complex in the village of Karavomylos, approximately 2km outside the small port of Sami. Set amid pretty gardens and with a shared swimming pool, the complex is only 10 metres from a quiet beach lined with eucalyptus trees and wonderful views of Ithaca. Within the village, a mini-market, bakery and several traditional tavernas are all within easy walking distance, and a 20 min walk along the beach takes you to the town of Sami with its many restaurants, supermarkets, butchers, bakeries, pharmacy and ATM . A car is not necessary and taxis are readily available but it is well worth exploring the stunning island of Kefalonia and Karavomylos is in a good central position to reach all areas easily. Organised tours of the island, car and bike hire can be arranged from Sami and it is possible to catch the ferry to various locations including Ithaca, the Greek mainland and Italy.

The apartment offers 2 bedrooms, one with large 3/4 size twin beds, one with a double bed and plenty of storage space. In the lounge area the sofa opens into a double bed for 2 more guests if required. There is a television and DVD player in the lounge and free Wi-fi for guests to use. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering holidays with hob, oven, toaster, crockery, utensils, fridge freezer, coffee machine, washing machine and iron to make your stay comfortable. A cot and high chair are also provided. Outside there are french doors opening onto a patio with a dining area seating six and a small gated garden. There are also sun beds and a barbecue for guests to use if they wish. Towels, beach towels and linen are all provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had at the apartment. It was lovely inside and in a perfect location to explore the island...and very reasonably priced for a two bedroomed apartment!

Just a few things to make it terrific!

  • 3 of 5

My husband & I spent 10 nights in this apartment in October, and other than a few maintenance jobs that need attending, it is a very good rental. The location was great for exploring the whole island, very central, and there are a couple of wonderful beaches nearby.

Unfortunately, there is a very musty mildew smell that greets you on arrival, and has permeated the kitchen cabinets. This was due to either a flood, or the plumbing under the sink, and would be difficult to resolve, but must be attended to if this is going to be a rental suite.

You must also be a cat lover, as every time we opened the patio doors to vent the air, one of many cats invited itself inside. Not something easily fixed, especially in Greece, where its abound! They are friendly enough, just a bit annoying at times.

The suite was spotlessly clean, and Herminie was very helpful and pleasant to work with. We arrived in the dark, and did not have instructions on how to find this particular unit, but wandered around the complex until I recognized the pictures from the website and found the key in the door. It seems she had been given our wrong contact number, so wasn't able to call us.

Lastly, we have never mastered the art of the "wet room" shower, and dislike having to mop the entire bathroom after every shower. Perhaps a shower rod & curtain could be installed to solve this problem for us North American renters that aren't used to this?

The place is very well equipped with cooking utensils and linens, and being able to pop a couple of lounges into the trunk when we went to the rocky beaches was lovely! Perhaps a few higher wattage light bulbs would brighten the dark spaces too?

Thank you for a good stay!

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your comments, we will certainly take them on board and look into the issue with the cupboard. Unfortunately, in low season the cats will be attracted to the few apartments that are actually occupied on a very small complex! We do however, ask guests not to feed them to discourage visits.

Perfect place to explore the island from. Beautiful appartment decor in cool calming tones.

We loved every minute of our stay - Hermoine was very welcoming and full of helpful info & tips. Best beach Petani & best restaurant Paradise on the hill at Agia Efimia. We visited so many places & Karavamylos is a brilliant base to explore from.

What a find! We were so happy here! It's just how it looks in the pictures, 5 seconds walk and you're on the beautifully natural coast line with a sea view I never wanted to stop looking at!

The apartment was lovely and very well equipped.

Help is always at hand from Hermione and Regina who can't do enough for you, they were just so lovely, We've never been so well looked after but they were always careful not to be intrusive, they are amazingly good at their jobs, we feel like we've made 2 new friends.

Really loved the pool, it's also in a beautiful setting.

Loved Karavomilos too, un-touristy, a naturally charming little place with really friendly people.

As you can probably tell, I think we'll be going back!!

Beautiful location, lovely people , stunning Island, but.....

  • 3 of 5

Karavomylos proved to be a lovely choice for our 11 day. Holiday. The location perfect between 2 small ports, one of which is an easy walk along the sea shore. You'll find plenty of choice of Tavernas in both places. The property was spotlessly clean and decor fresh. The Management couldn't have been more helpful and friendly assisting us in every possible way, advice on trips (great) where best for seafood etc.

Sadly, nothing is perfect and the 2nd bedroom at the rear proved to be a big problem from the point of view of noise from intermittent busy road traffic. Its only window which is high up opens out at pavement level on the other side only a few meters from the road. The rumble and roar of lorries etc, was at times unbelievable. This wouldn't be a problem if you were just a couple or needed the 2nd bedroom for children who could perhaps sleep through lots of loud noise. Pack earplugs!

Car: not necessary

Kefalonia is a stunningly beautiful island and was voted 4th most idyllic place to live in the world by Forbes. Rugged, mountainous and green, it is the largest of the Ionian group. Its scenery is dramatic with the fir covered Mount Aenos reaching 1626 meters and it has lots of beautiful bays and inlets enjoying both white pebble beaches with crystal clear water and long sandy beaches. Its interior is equally beautiful with sheltered valleys of olive groves and vineyards. Kefalonia is a great island for walking, cycling or horse riding and has a good road network for exploring the island.

The beaches on this side of the island are excellent for swimming and snorkeling and plenty of pretty, quiet coves can be found all along the coastline. It is well worth hiring a boat from Agia Efimia to discover the beaches that can only be reached by sea or exploring the coastline by kayak. An organised beach with sun beds and parasols is only a 10 min walk away and you can also use the pool and cafe/bar at the beachside campsite. A football pitch, tennis and basketball courts and a children's playground are also only a few minutes walk away. The beautiful Antisamos beach is only a short distance away by car with its cafes and water sports whilst the attractions of the Drogarati caves and Melissani lake are both nearby. The stunning sunsets at Myrtos beach are also only a short drive away.
