Amazing, well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday staying here. Sharon and Leigh were very helpful with everything in the run up to our holiday and also during our stay, including providing detailed directions from the airport which made our arrival much less stressful. We travelled with 6 adults and 2 toddlers and there was so much baby equipment provided, it made our stay very relaxing (cots, highchairs, baby monitor, plastic plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, even bibs!).

The villa is lovely, furnished to a very high standard and every detail is thought about. We loved the cushioned outdoor seating area for relaxing in the shade. Barbecue area was fantastic for cooking in the evenings. Also great having swings and trampoline for the children as well as lots of games and inflatable toys (adults enjoyed these too!).

Location was good although we did find we had to drive everywhere as we were nervous of pushing the pram along the narrow single track lane but for others it is walking distance to the beach and some other places but we were happy to drive.

The only negative for us was trying to stop our toddlers falling down the numerous stairs or into the pool but I imagine that would be the same anywhere else so isn't a reflection on this villa (but perhaps worth considering if you have small children), we look forward to returning sometime in the next few years!

Scam

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of six and we had a great time.

Then a week after we had got home we were told we had left damage at the Villa and that part of our deposit would not be refunded.

This has put a black cloud over the holiday now as all was fine when we left the Villa. - We were told that water was coming out of the walls in the basement which had resulted in mould covering the wall etc. (all this was in a three day period/from when the cleaner came on the tuesday and us leaving on the saturday morning) We tried to say that surely a leak would cause this kind of damage but the owners were not listening to us. We tried to phone direct to talk about this problem but they would only communicate via email.

Our problem is we feel this is a scam as when we rented the villa we were told it was at a reduced rate, so we feel to make up some money they are keeping some of the deposit for repairs which were not our fault. We have seen no photo's of this damage nothing just email's.

If we had done damage to the Villa we would have repaired and paid for it ourself's not just left it!

So as you can see we are so dissapointed to be accused of damage we know we are not responsible for.

So to anyone looking to rent this Villa make sure you meet someone when you are departing the Villa so it can be checked and you don't get accused of damage and your deposit not being paid back!!

At the end of the day it is not rocket science that if you have got water coming out the wall's in a basement then a leak must have happened above!

Owner's Response: Whilst you all had a Great Time at Morgorlwg Fila during your stay and your review is clearly all about your issue with us holding part of your security deposit which as owners were clearly within our rights to with hold the full security deposit due to the damages left at the property on your departure but only with held part of it. Our response of being a Scam which we believe is Outrageous, the price was paid as shown on the advert at the time and as perspective guests please read our other reviews from previous guests too. We have never seen damages like this in all the years we have had the property and having had everything checked thoroughly by plumber & civil engineer for leaks etc with no leaks, the damages occurred during your stay between the mid week clean and during your departure. We had given full details of damages to you and as mentioned in our emails that we could not accept telephone calls at the time as we were away and we are obliged to keep all conversations where there are issues between guests and property owners on email as they are then noted to owners direct too. As mentioned to you we were very lucky not to have had guests booked straight after your departure as we would have had to re accommodate them as it has taken a full 3 1/2 weeks of 3 humidifiers on constantly to rectify your damages to our property which is clearly NOT " no damages or in any means a scam to keep part of your security deposit" Many Thanks Sharon & Leigh

Stunning property- family memories to treasure

  • 5 of 5

The property was exceptional. The grounds were spacious and my 5 and 7 year old girls were entertained with the pool, garden area, swings and trampoline. The area is tranquil and above all stunning. We couldn't get over looking out at the views every morning.

The local beach was actually our favourite on the island and we did quite a bit of travelling.

A car is a must, but it's very cheap, and the owners gave excellent recommendations. If your thinking of staying in Kefalonia I would recommend this villa without hesitation.

Fabulous week in a wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa. There were 8 of us but there is so much space in the villa especially with all the lovely outdoor areas. Pool is great and local beaches are lovely. The location overlooks the bay but you will need a car to get to the local shops as well as to explore further. The owners Leigh and Sharon were extremely helpful at all stages of the booking and stay. Highly recomended.

Incredibly clean, well equipped villa with beautifully kept gardens.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a fantastic week here and all agreed that the villa was beyond our expectations. Attention to detail couldn't be faulted. There were so many things for the children (ages 4 and 6) to play with. The pool, bbq , outdoor dining and relaxing areas were superb. The garden was a delight with amazing fruit trees, herbs and flowers. The local small beach was a short walk away and had a taverna and beach bar and there were other larger beaches a short drive away. Couldn't fault anything.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely and clean with amazing views. It is private but is only a short drive from towns and supermarkets. The grounds are very spacious and would be brilliant for those with children. A lovely small beach with a couple of places to eat a short walk. The one we chose was a bit relaxed with serving but didn't matter if you are not in a rush!

Owners were very helpful and responded immediately when asked questions. They have been a pleasure to deal with. Kefalonia is beautiful and I hope to return one day.
