We have had the most wonderful holiday! The villa, pool, garden and BBQ all splendid. Fourth year at Hector House and everything was perfect. Absolutely fabulous villa in a magical valley on a wonderful island, we can not wait to return (05).

Thank you so much, your villa is absolutely perfect. When I arrived I could not believe how well equipped this house was. For the first time in my life I was speechless! Thank you for sharing your lovely home Hector (07).

Well Hector what can we say - thank you for fitting out your house in such a fantastic way - very comfortable, every need at hand. What a fantastic time we had. All of us enjoyed ourselves immensely and we have nothing but praise for the house its location, which are superb and have everything you need for a truly relaxing and we have had the most wonderful holiday! The villa, pool, garden and BBQ all splendid. (05).We have been going for family villa holidays since 1993, and this one tops the lot! The best villa ever(09).

Memorable stay

  • 1 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed for three weeks at Hectors House, and the sixth consecutive year we have come back. We have been visiting Greek islands and staying in villas for many years, but when we found Hectors House we knew we would keep coming back. Hector's hospitality is second to none, the villa is equipped with everything guests might need (and more), the 11m pool is spotlessly clean, the large marble area surrounding the pool is attractive with lots of space to sit in the sun or shade. There is also a large covered area across almost the full width of the property. We used the outside kitchen every day (except the two days when we had huge thunderstorms!). This kitchen is also fully equipped including dishwasher, and for much of our three weeks we came inside only to shower and sleep. We always make plans to venture far and wide, but each year these plans are largely deferred because we love being at Hectors House so much!

The village of Agia Efimia was more crowded at the end of August than we have known in previous years, but we always managed to get a table at our two favourite Tavernas, Paradise Beach and The Pergola. We now support local business by hiring our car from Nikos at Star Villas, who brings the car to the airport to meet us.

Overall, we cannot recommend a stay at Hectors House highly enough, and we very much look forward to our future visits

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in many holiday villas over the years but have to rate Hectors house up there with the very best. Quite simply every thing you could want has been thought of and provided. Kitchen supplies, pool supplies, beach supplies, you name it and it's there. The beds are very comfortable. Hector is charming and was readily available to sort out a small glitch with the power supply when it occurred. The pool is great and quite large. It's a little out of town so you do need a car but we did walk in to Agia Efemia once which was quite pleasant and taxis are readily available.

We had a tremendous stay and I would happily recommend the villa to others.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had read some good reviews about Hectors House and to our delight they all proved to be true! Hectors House certainly has the 'wow' factor when you walk in and the arrival pack and reception from Hector himself was most welcome! From the simple things through to the finer details, the facilities and support are second to none.

A wonderful find

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Hectors House with our own children with ages ranges 8 to 20 years plus the eldest son’s girlfriend. We all had an absolutely wonderful time.

The booking process was very easy and pleasant helped by Hectors sister Vicky who was very efficient kind and helpful.

We had such a pleasant surprise on arrival being greeted by Hector himself and shown around.

Everything was just superb from the well equipped kitchen to large fridge and freezer , with a very generous welcome pack kindly thought about so we didn't have to rush out.

The whole villa is luxuriously equipped and extremely well designed and thought out from the furniture to the lighting, good wi fi and superb sound system which extends outside enable our teenage contingent to stream music outside from the laptop provided.

The pool is wonderful and has an easy entry for younger, but has a great deep end.

There is an outside BBQ and kitchen area covered with fridge and crockery, utensils etc, so one can cook and eat outside, listening to music, with wonderful views around. If cooking in the evening there is a very clever atmospheric lighting system. Within this area there is a sheltered corner to sit and chill in some shade in the daytime or sit and talk in the evening.

There was enough space for us all to both be together and also to have some space and privacy if we wanted. When we ran out of BBQ gas it was replaced straight away, Hectors other sister helping out. All kept spotless by possibly another family member. All very friendly and kind.

The place is completely private not overlooked, and has a lovely grassed garden as well.

The upstairs bedroom has its own en suite and small kitchenette area which was superb as my wife and I could get up before all the kids were up and have a relaxed cup of coffee on the veranda overlooking the sea and mountains as the sun came up.

A great find. We will be back. Thank you.

I cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth year we have stayed in Agia Efimia, and the third time back at Hector's House.

Our welcome, as always, was warm and generous, with enough food in the 'welcome' pack to keep us going for several days without needing to shop except for bread. Hector proudly showed us the improvements he has made to the outside kitchen since we were there in 2012, including a two burner stove in addition to the barbecue, and a dishwasher. These things make a big difference, and resulted in me hardly using the indoor kitchen at all - we lived outside and only went in to shower and sleep!

The swimming pool was as sparkling and clean as ever, the pool surrounds and garden look great, the inside accommodation comfortable and really well equipped.

In terms of location, as long as you hire a car, Hector's House is an ideal base to visit anywhere on the island. Myrtos Beach is only 5 miles away, and all the other 'must see' places are within an hour's drive. The village itself is charming, with lots of different tavernas to choose from, a couple of gift shops, supermarkets, bread shops and butchers. Boat and car hire are both available in the village.

In short, we cannot recommend Hector's House highly enough, either for couples like us, or for families. The swimming pool has a safe, shallow swimming area for young children, and there is plenty of outside furniture for lounging on.

Needless to say we have already booked to go back next year for a fourth visit!

It should be made clear here, however, that any decision to accommodate more than 6 is entirely at our discretion.
