Stayed for our honeymoon for 2 weeks. Booking was easy and payment on arrival. Excellent communication from Angela online although unfortunately we never met. The Villas are run by her lovely mother - Irene. The cleaning lady is lovely and took a shine to our little one. There were even some toys out out for her on the bed on our arrival. And she was happy to do some washing for us to boot. Everything is kept spotless. The rooms could do with a little modernisation but so could much of the accommodation on the Island. Amazing views across Lourdas bay and beyond, ample sun loungers and chairs. The pool is spotless and very cold which is just what was needed as the weather was wonderful. Cannot rate this place highly enough and we are sure to return. We already miss the place and I’m still here when I write this review

Just came back from a relaxing time at Garbis. Accommodation and grounds were spotlessly clean, The apartment cleaned every day as was the pool. Cleaning lady was very friendly and keen to help. Irene was floating around making sure everything was ok for everybody. Nice quiet place for a relaxing holiday. Shops and tavernas 5 minute walk away.

Irene is the best host ever! We love her! Thank you for having us and to Helen the cleaner too who was also super friendly and accommodating! It felt as if we were staying with family, very welcoming and warm. We were welcomed with ice cold drinks and water. Everything was so clean, the pool and rooms. The value was amazing. Helped with a taxi to airport too. What a beautiful view from the pool. Short walk to restaurants and bars. The beach is further but accessible with a taxi or car. You could walk it too!

The setting was very picturesque, sitting on the area by the pool with views to die for, just beautiful. The room was cleaned regularly and had everything we needed for a two week stay. The beach is close by however we hired a motor bike as this was far more convenient. There are plenty of good restaurants minutes from the apartment and three supermarkets to choose from. The owner was lovely and friendly and I would highly recommend Garbis Villas.

Garbis Villas and Apartments have been incredible. The Apartments have a stunning view of the Ionion Sea which is an incredible sapphire blue and in the distance, a wonderful view of Zante, one of the other Ionion Islands. We stayed in a spacious two bed apartment with a bathroom and two toilets. The Kitchnette was great and there was a roomy salon too. We enjoyed having our Greekstyle breakfast on the balcony every morning and then heading down to the poolside. The pool is a good size and is surrounded by lovely loungers and plenty of parasols. All you can hear is the lapping of the distant waves and the crickets in the gorgeous trees and glorious Garbis gardens. Irene, the owner, and Eleni, the cleaner, are both so friendly and kind. The apartments are near restaurants, bars and mini markets... all walking distance. It is a great base for travelling around the island. A car is helpful for accessing beaches and nearby towns. Yesterday, we went to one of the family run Garbis jewellery shops and the service and attention was just as good as the Villa's. We loved Kefalonia and we cannot wait to visit again. We will 100% return to Garbis Villas. Thank you!

Wonderfully located with superb southerly views to Zakynthos, Garbis Villas is a select, clean, beautifully maintained selection of ground foor and first floor accomodation. Booking is easy via Angela who answered all our queries promptly and efficiently. The pool bar is not open but that probably helpd the quiet, calm atmosphere that pervades this place. Hordes of screaming kids would not be welcome here. Just one criticism - the paved parking areas should be reserved for Blue Badge holders as parking in the unsurfaced sloping car park and then traversing the very steep steps where there is no handrail is tricky for those who have mobiliy issues.

This is our 4th visit to Garbis Villas and it has never disappointed us. A great family run business where nothing is too much trouble. We made 3 bookings through COVID each time we had to cancel, but Angela didnt quibble she just moved our deposit to our next available date. You can certainly book with confidence here. Its a lovely quiet place suitable for couples or a group of friends who just want to relax and enjoy the sun. Theres no fighting for sunbeds as there are plenty and just a lovely atmosphere to soak up. There are some fantastic beaches on Kefalonia to explore and plenty of lively restaurants and bars to visit. Just book it you wont be disappointed.

Just returned from a wonderful 10 days despite the storm! Booking process via Angela all very smooth. Irene and Alexandra looked after us very well. Everything was spotless both in the apartment and communal areas. Alexandra works very hard cleaning down the sun beds and pool every morning and Irene always on hand for a friendly chat. The location overlooking the bay is stunningly beautiful. The walk down to the beach took about 25 mins and we are reasonably fit but the walk back up is quite challenging (taxi 7 euros). Definitely recommend for a quiet place to chill. We were thankful the bar area was closed and the music wasn’t coming through the speakers as this would change the feel of the place for us although others may not agree! We certainly had a fab quiet stay. Thank you.

We spent 10 nights at Garbis Villas in August in a 2 bed apartment, travelling with 2 primary school aged children. The views are incredible from the pool area and balcony - the best we've ever had in Greece. Apartment was well equipped and really spacious with separate bedrooms, lounge area, kitchen and table area, bathroom (bath with shower over) and separate toilet and sink. Large fridge and small freezer really useful to keep supplies in. Bathroom and toilet a bit shabby and not as smart as the rest of the apartment. Shower head needs replacing as a minimum. A/C and Wifi both good. Beds really comfortable. Plenty of towels including pool towels which was great. Curtains aren't blackout so we took stick up blinds to keep it dark for the kids bedroom. We hired a car for 5 days to explore and found some lovely beaches. Kaminia was our favourite - beautiful sand, shallow for miles, great for kids. There's a beach bar at kaminia for snacks and drinks. It's about 25 mins drive east along the coast. Near the Villas are plenty of restaurants up on the road, some were closed when we were there but still lots of choice. La Mer and Chefalonia were our favourites for quality greek food. We walked down and back to the beach twice up along the road then down the hill. It's around 25 mins down, 30 or so back up and very steep but we all managed it fine with a few pauses on the way up and an ice cream incentive before we set off. Lourdas beach is very pleasant, we hired a pedalo with a slide which was great fun for 15 Euros for an hour. Had an amazing, happy, relaxing holiday, I hope we can come back!
