This is as close as it gets to perfection! I stayed there with my wife for 9 days and I wanted to stay for ever. We got everything. The sea in front of us, own umbrella and beds at the beach, which is only a few yards away, barbecue, a sea bike, and Giorgos, the owner, who will cater to every wish of yours. Strongly recommend this place!!!

We have just had a great 2 week stay at the onar cottage on the beach at dexa , ithaca ( about 1 Klm from vathy). . This property is unique in that it is the only house - divided into one two bed and one one bed apartment - that is on the beach front , with nothing on either side except olive trees. It is about 15 m from the private area for each apartment shaded by grape vines and olive trees to the water. The apartment is really a small house and as all you need to enjoy a laid back barefoot luxury style of break. Great wifi , fully equipped kitchen , BBQ and a great outdoor dining table under an olive tree and grape vine. There are quality shady sun beds that are totally yours to use at anytime on the water front. Also a fun paddle boat that we could paddle out into the amazing clear water bay. We spent our days lazing around swimming reading then popped into vathy or one of the many villages on the island for dinner. George ,the owner is always available to help , he is a great guy and his help is never intrusive. The house was cleaned every 3 days which was great - george often offered to pop into vathy to bring us back a nice iced coffee- ( good coffee machine in house as well) We loved the island , friendly locals , everything just seemed easy and any time we booked something they were always on time. We are pleased we found George's place and would love to go back.

We were lucky enough to stay for eleven days pre-season. It was cool but sunny and it didn't rain. Flowers everywhere - stunning! George the owner, was exceptionally helpful - he couldn't have done more for us but at the same time, did not disturb us. The Silver apartment was well equipped, spotless, quiet and comfortable. Piping hot water on demand and linen changed every three days when the apartment was cleaned. Fantastic location, great to be close enough to Vathi with its Tavernas and shops but in a rural setting. You need a motorbike licence to hire a motorcycle but it is the best way to get around. We also hired a car but it was a bit superfluous. We would highly recommend this accommodation and are hoping to return. Ithaca is truly beautiful. Make sure you hire a boat to get to otherwise inaccessible breathtaking beaches.

What a beautiful location. We can see why this is place is always booked. To call Onar an apartment is an injustice. It is a an outstanding cottage steps away from Dexa beach. We were lucky enough to spend 2 days in the gold cottage (it was between bookings as they are booked on a weekly basis). George is fantastic and saw to our every need. He was the perfect host. Our only regret was having to leave

We have just returned from 2 weeks in the "silver" apartment, and we really think that this must be the best place to stay on the whole of Ithaka. If you want self catering accommodation and like swimming in the sea (in a beautiful bay with crystal clear water), then this is the place. We saw nowhere else directly on such a lovely quiet beach. The location is also ideal because it is very quiet and relaxing, but also just over the hill from Vathy where you have the biggest selection of shops and restaurants on the island (and a number of small supermarkets.) Ithaka is small enough that, if you have a hire car or moped, you can easily get anywhere in less than about half an hour. The appartment is very clean, comfortable and well equipped and as others have said, George, the owner, is extremely helpful without intruding at all. The small electric oven with 3 hobs and a grill works very well (once you work out how to use it.) Having our own private and very comfortable sunloungers just in front of the house on the beach, and a pedalo for our own use was a real treat. We explored the island by car, foot and a hired motor boat one day, but enjoyed our days on Dexa beach just as much. We ate out every other day and also enjoyed some good meals in the apartment including local fish cooked on the barbeque. The small fenced in area around the house is also very well equipped, comfortable and private with a lovely outlook. The wi-fi signal was also good, though occasionally not available (but not for long.) I really don't see how these apartments could be any better- for us, it was the ideal place with the best host. Thank you George!

We spent a week in the Silver Dream house apartment in May/June 2015. Whatever you see and expect, derived from your internet research prior to getting there, will prove to be at least three times more perfect! Beautifully located in a paradisiac setting among the olive trees and just a few steps from a crystalline bay, the Onar Seaside Apartments offer quiet and a perfect opportunity to relax, rest, swim, and - yes! - dream! The facilities offer everything one can possibly need, the place is spotlessly clean and very well maintained. We would like to say a special word of gratitude and appreciation to Yiorgos (George), who owns and runs the place. Apart from being (almost miraculously) always available, should one need assistance and /or useful tips and information, but he has proved to be someone of real human depth and quality! We feel proud and privileged to have met and known him! Dear Yiorgos, from the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU! May you stay healthy and happy!

We recently spent a week in the Onar Gold apartment, with our two year old daughter, and could not have enjoyed it more. On arrival off the boat we called the owner George who came to collect us - just the start of a number of things he did above and beyond you may expect when renting an apartment. Nothing was too much hassle for him. The house itself is very clean and comfortable. A brilliant barbecue and George's dolphin pedalo to cruise the bay. It really is such a pretty and peaceful setting - we really felt we were on our own private beach and will remember the beautiful views from the french doors in our bedroom in the morning for a long time to come. A highlight was hiring our own boat for the day and visiting local beaches and bays - contact Stefano at Ithaca Boats. They run out of Vathy and are 60 euros + petrol. We really could not recommend this property more highly. We look forward to visiting again soon. Bravo George! Mikey, Anna and Rose

We spent 7 days in Onar Silver apartment in August 2014. Setting of the Onar house is absolutely marvelous, direct on the beach in shade of olive trees. Although exposed it is hidden by natural fence of trees and bushes. Inside of apartment is modest but clean and enough equipped. At admittance you will find water, Nescafe, coffee, juices and initial supplies for start. Environment is quite days and nights perfectly for real vacation. George is absolutely perfect host that satisfied all your needs and demands. You can get all essential info, you can find a fish for barbecue, go by boat to other beach...everything, very resourceful guy. Beach by itself is not outstanding but peace and relaxation you find there is overcoming all minor or cosmetic issues. Water is perfectly clean, you have amazing view on Kefalonia. George(and giota:)) thank you for all, and you are really welcome to Bosnia anytime!

We stayed at the Onar Silver apartment last week and it more than exceeded our expectations. It was a very quiet location but within walking distance of the main town, Vathy. George the owner could not have been more helpful and friendly. The apartment itself has everything you could need for a self catering holiday. The beach itself is wonderful if a bit pebbly so take your flip flops with you!! We will definitely be going back for another total chill out experience. Thanks George
