Another fabulous stay at Hector's House
Once again we had a glorious three weeks at Hector's House. His hospitality and welcome is second to none. Everything was done to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, and I cannot recommend this villa highly enough
This is the second year we have stayed for three weeks at Hectors House, and the sixth consecutive year we have come back. We have been visiting Greek islands and staying in villas for many years, but when we found Hectors House we knew we would keep coming back. Hector's hospitality is second to none, the villa is equipped with everything guests might need (and more), the 11m pool is spotlessly clean, the large marble area surrounding the pool is attractive with lots of space to sit in the sun or shade. There is also a large covered area across almost the full width of the property. We used the outside kitchen every day (except the two days when we had huge thunderstorms!). This kitchen is also fully equipped including dishwasher, and for much of our three weeks we came inside only to shower and sleep. We always make plans to venture far and wide, but each year these plans are largely deferred because we love being at Hectors House so much!
The village of Agia Efimia was more crowded at the end of August than we have known in previous years, but we always managed to get a table at our two favourite Tavernas, Paradise Beach and The Pergola. We now support local business by hiring our car from Nikos at Star Villas, who brings the car to the airport to meet us.
Overall, we cannot recommend a stay at Hectors House highly enough, and we very much look forward to our future visits
I've stayed in many holiday villas over the years but have to rate Hectors house up there with the very best. Quite simply every thing you could want has been thought of and provided. Kitchen supplies, pool supplies, beach supplies, you name it and it's there. The beds are very comfortable. Hector is charming and was readily available to sort out a small glitch with the power supply when it occurred. The pool is great and quite large. It's a little out of town so you do need a car but we did walk in to Agia Efemia once which was quite pleasant and taxis are readily available.
We had a tremendous stay and I would happily recommend the villa to others.
Everything we needed!
We had read some good reviews about Hectors House and to our delight they all proved to be true! Hectors House certainly has the 'wow' factor when you walk in and the arrival pack and reception from Hector himself was most welcome! From the simple things through to the finer details, the facilities and support are second to none.
A wonderful find
We recently stayed at Hectors House with our own children with ages ranges 8 to 20 years plus the eldest son’s girlfriend. We all had an absolutely wonderful time.
The booking process was very easy and pleasant helped by Hectors sister Vicky who was very efficient kind and helpful.
We had such a pleasant surprise on arrival being greeted by Hector himself and shown around.
Everything was just superb from the well equipped kitchen to large fridge and freezer , with a very generous welcome pack kindly thought about so we didn't have to rush out.
The whole villa is luxuriously equipped and extremely well designed and thought out from the furniture to the lighting, good wi fi and superb sound system which extends outside enable our teenage contingent to stream music outside from the laptop provided.
The pool is wonderful and has an easy entry for younger, but has a great deep end.
There is an outside BBQ and kitchen area covered with fridge and crockery, utensils etc, so one can cook and eat outside, listening to music, with wonderful views around. If cooking in the evening there is a very clever atmospheric lighting system. Within this area there is a sheltered corner to sit and chill in some shade in the daytime or sit and talk in the evening.
There was enough space for us all to both be together and also to have some space and privacy if we wanted. When we ran out of BBQ gas it was replaced straight away, Hectors other sister helping out. All kept spotless by possibly another family member. All very friendly and kind.
The place is completely private not overlooked, and has a lovely grassed garden as well.
The upstairs bedroom has its own en suite and small kitchenette area which was superb as my wife and I could get up before all the kids were up and have a relaxed cup of coffee on the veranda overlooking the sea and mountains as the sun came up.
A great find. We will be back. Thank you.
I cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay.
What can I say, excellent accomadation, met by Hector on arrival, nothing too much trouble, I have travelled worldwide and had ups and downs, Hector asked me to tell him if we found anything he could do to improve the Villa, nothing Hector thank you for superb holiday
