We booked for 7 but stayed 10 days after our flight home was cancelled. Rooms are lovely, views are stunning and we were kindly lent bikes which we used a lot to ride into town and to the beautiful Antisamos beach (well we pushed them up the hill!) and to Agia Effimia. At night we walked into town for dinner and its well lit so although there is no footpath we didn't feel unsafe. The weather was amazing for this time of year, average 24 degrees, so really pleasant time to visit; pool was cold but the sea was lovely and warm. Only things to bear in mind are a cockerel lives next door and is active early every morning (4.30am) and the owners dog did bark and howl outside at times during the night, but a little sleep around the pool the next day did help! Really recommend Contessina for meals; we were here so long we tried most of the restaurants and this was by far the best and they're really friendly. Also if you want a taxi (we chose not to hire a car) can thoroughly recommend Kefalonia Taxi Service, a great service. …
We stayed at the Sami view for three nights. What a great place to stay. It's located just outside the village but with a 15 min walk you're in the center of Sami. The swimmingpool is great and the rooms are clean, provided with a little kitchen and have a nice balcony. The owners were lovely and very helpfull people. I would definitly recommend this place.
Very clean, spacious room with lovely gardens and the owners are exceptionally warm and accommodating whilst being very discreet. Well equipped kitchen and nice patio area. We even extended on our original 3 night stay and would definitely return. Thank you Vicky and John!
We only stayed the one night, our last day in Kephalonia and we were very disappointed we hadn't discovered this spot before. Vicky and John were great hosts and extremely helpful in every aspect of our stay. Great recommendation to Dolphins restaurant for dinner. lovely large room with all facilities and very clean. great view from the balcony looking over the Port of Sami and into town would highly recommend to couples and families.
Lovely stay very clean had everything in the rooms you need lovely hosts bit of a walk into town when really hot Go to the model ship museum up the road lovely chap who makes them showed us round and the new archeological museum just opened is full of the artifacts found in Sami
We recently stayed for four nights at Sami View. We can’t recommend it enough. John and Vicky are amazing hosts - so hospitable. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and very spacious and comfortable. Also the best shower - great water pressure. The pool area and gardens are like a tropical paradise. It’s also a great location for travelling around Kefalonia. You won’t regret staying here … we are already looking forward to our next visit.
Our stay in Sami View was amazing, exceeded every expectation! Great beds, such a complete room, very very clean, nice balcony, we even had 2 to choose from. The pool and garden are lovely, well taken care off also by the dear owners Vicky and Yiannis. The hosts are such welcoming and amazing people, we had ice cream, home made lemonade, watermelon, frappe and a local drink called tentura. They go above and beyond to make your holiday even more enjoyable! When you want to stay at Kefalonia be sure to check this one out! Location, view, amenities everything is astonishing!
We had a studio apartment. We were very impressed with the size, cleanliness and the personal decor of the room. (We would definitely stay there again if we revisit Kefalonia). Unfortunately, we didn't have time to use the pool - which looked very inviting! When we arrived, we were early and hot! Vicki welcomed us with a cool beverage while we waited a short while for our room to be ready. Later, we had to go into Sami in our wedding clothes during the main heat of the day. John, the host, very kindly drove us in his car. We liked the friendly owners, who ensured we had an enjoyable stay.
We stayed in Sami view for 1 night as we were going to Ithaca but missed the ferry for that evening. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely and clean, a nice touch having bottled water in the fridge and tea/coffee. Great powerful shower and air con. Also a lovely balcony area. We asked the owners if they could help us arrange a taxi to the restaurants that evening and again for the early morning ferry, in which they kindly offered to take us their self. This was very kind of them and much appreciated, thank you. We were also advised of some nice restaurants to try. We will definitely return to Sami View as we go to Ithaca again. We may even stay longer in Sami next time to enjoy Sami View apartments longer.
We were at 4 different hotels in Kefalonia and this one was the best. We had the pool view apartment, which is spacious with comfy beds and a good equipment. The balcony was large so you could sit there and enjoy the sunset. The garden around the pool area is very well maintained. There are goats and chicken nearby and sometimes the peacock from the neighbor visits. Lovely peaceful and cost hideaway in the nature & super close to to Sami. Definitely recommend!
