About Mr Michael Kinsey

Mike and Maria have been married for 42 years, and living in the UK. We have been to Kefalonia several times and fell in love with the island and decided to buy a property here. In 2014 we built a new cottage next door and is now available for holiday letting.

Mr Michael Kinsey purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Mr Michael Kinsey chose Kefalonia (Cephalonia)

We decided to buy in this lovely village of Keramies as it is a traditional working village boasting two restaurants and a mini market. Both restaurants offer a choice of menu and serve traditional Greek food. We are a ten minute drive from the airport with the capital Argostoli a further ten minutes drive away.The area has some of the most beautiful sandy beaches and coves the Island has to offer all within a few minutes drive. The port of Pessada where you can take the daily ferry to Zante and the historic st. Georges castle is only a five minute drive. The location is ideal for walks or hiring a car/motor bike and searching out the wonderful sites the Island has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

With the Cosmopolitan Argostoli only a ten minute drive away,it is the ideal location for visiting the many bars/restaurants, coffee bars and shops the capital has to offer.

As we live next door to the cottage we can offer a personal service while also being available to offer any support or advice you may require.

Maria and I are part of a turtle conservation group covering all aspects of turtle conservation on the Island including daily beach patrols to monitor and protect the turtle population of Kefalonia.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As this is a new build and our first year of letting, we don't have any information to share with you.

Charming Cottage and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hestia Cottage. The rental is well-equipped, charmingly decorated, and situated in a quiet village away from the crowded touristy spots. It is well-situated near the airport and main roads to the main town of Argostoli and to any of the main excursion destinations on the island. We enjoyed lovely scenic day trips to nearly every spot on the island and had time for daily, refreshing dips in the sea. Mick and Maria are fantastic hosts who welcomed us warmly to the island, provided is with fresh tomatoes from their garden, and offered us an amazing beach tour informing us of their conservation work protecting the nests of the island's sea turtles. We do not hesitate to recommend this rental and its hosts highly for a very comfortable, relaxing stay in Kefalonia!

A Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic two week holiday in Kefalonia. Cottage Hestia and Mick & Maria's hospitality are 1st class. Kerramies is in a great position for visiting the island while also being only a 10 minute drive into Argostoli.

For those who don't want to travel around there are two great local restaurants only a short walk away and many local beaches and coves where you can safely swim in the Ionian sea.

We fully recommend this as a great way to visit a truly beautiful island.

Many thanks to Mick & Maria for helping to make this a memorable holiday.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 week holiday in kefelonia, the cottage was more than we expected. It was equipped with everything we needed and mick and Marie were only too happy to accommodate anything we needed. They showed us all the local sights and couldn't do enough for us. Mick and Marie were the perfect hosts and helped to make our holiday amazing. The village where the cottage is situated is lovely and the locals were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The local restaurant in the village served excellent food and great service, and the local shop owner was very friendly. We have booked again for next year and told all our friends about this lovely cottage.

Thank you so much mick and Marie for such fantastic memories.

Villa Hestia Kefalonia 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Kefalonia; and we just wanted something nice and petite for us to stay within an traditional Greek village.

This property is in our opinion exceptional on its presentation along with its owners Mike and Maria.

Mike contacted us direct by telephone to confirm the booking and to state he would pick us up from the airport, he also set the car hire to be delivered to villa on our arrival. To add to this he showed us around the beaches when we arrived. I can honestly say both my and me felt at ease within their company and also to know that there was nothing that they wouldn't do for us.

The villa itself was spotless inside, clean and beautiful with its clean lines and decoration and the; English touches inside. Maria it was dressed lovely. Mike designed and made sure it was built to his requirements. You guys should be very proud of the villa, for us it was perfect.

Wine and glasses was laid out for us, milk and bread in the fridge, all contact information as well at your fingertips, nothing left out.

Mike and Maria we certainly envy your situation and we thank you for allowing us to visit and enjoy the Cottage Hestia. Over the course of the week we dined out together, we even drank a few beers and enjoyed the last night with a BBQ along with some of your friends.

My wife and I look forward to seeing you next year on the dates we've provided.

We feel we've met some lovely people to call friends and maintain a friendship to come within future years. Indeed we hope to buy ourselves at some point with the next few years.

Mike and Maria thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You're lovely people and we hope you get the credit you deserve from other clients who visit your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Nigel for your lovely comments. As for Maria and I we were very pleased that you chose "cottage Hestia" for your holiday and like wise we feel that we have had the pleasure of meeting two genuine people that we can call our friends, not only for this year but for years to come. We are aware that everyone has their own idea of what they want from their holiday and if we can do anything to help them achieve that goal, then we are more than happy to assist. I have booked your dates for next year and as we get closer to the dates I will be in touch to see if there is anything you require me to do for you. In the mean time all I can say is thank you one again for your outstanding review and both take care until we meet up again. Kind regards Mike and Maria
