click to enlargeI can only add to everyone else's comments by saying that although these apartments are cheap and cheerful, they really are a wonderful place to stay. Kefalos is an amazing place full of wonderful people and fabulous food. We have stayed at Eftichia twice this year and no doubt will return in 2013

We have just come back from our fifth visit,great to see them all agin!We met Idonisya & never were short of free free range eggs.We ate  lunch in the Sunlight Bar & Cafe,drinks & internet in the Acropol Bar .Car hire & transportation was sorted by Dimitris Cars,who was able to take me to places inaccessible to tour operators or taxi drivers.Trip to Nissyros 15 euros a head,the Captain of the Boat Kamari2 sails at 12.30 am every Tuesday pay on board forget the rep!He even drives back to our Favourite Restuarant  the Golden fleece!Its hard to get bookings now & you dont know what plane you will fly on till you check in at the Airport!
Yamas Eftichia!!

 Helen and I felt great to be back at Eftichea's, this year with daughter Louise and partner Stuart. The secret behind this set of studios are their simplicity. After all, what are we there for - the sun, sea, swimming pool, R&R, so we spend very little time in the apartment.

If you want to do lots of cooking, take (in main luggage) or buy a good knife as it's the only thing the kichen really needs. There's no air-con, but you can hire a fan. We picked up some small deskfans locally a few years ago, so we take them each year.

I spoke to a few people in other apartments who have been booking here for many years, and they love the quiet location and the friendly locals. Many years ago I would never have thought I'd keep going back to the same location, but I'm sure we'll be back next year, as you just can't beat the warmth of weather and friendship.

We did return - and were pleased to see very little had changed .

Although the puppy had gone, he was replaced by four adorable kittens, whose plaintive calls for feeding are very difficult to refuse!
Simple accommodation at low prices, just right for those wishing to do self-catering and live the quiet life.
Helen and I will be back next year - again!

Stayed last week jul first aug 07. These are typical Koan self catering apts,clean,basic and great! I was told the name meant "happyness" and i would be happy to stay again! This time though i'll keep my footwear inside as the puppy has a taste for them and the shower mat! The family who live there and service them are very friendly you'll enjoy the welcome! If your flights are late you can have the room til 8pm for 20 euro i was told but our flight was'nt til 0320 so i get a room by the harbour for 20 euro just down from sunlight cafe.

The Eftichea (pronounced Eff-ti-hear) Apartments are named after the owner Eftichea, a lovely lady who, like other comments below, does not speak much English. However she coped with our minimal Greek, and with a few smiles (and Yasoos!) in the right places, we had no problems.
The apartment was basic but clean, with a fridge, kettle, sink and double hotplate. Hire a fan (20 for 2 weeks) if you're there in July & August, as there's no air-con (we had one day of 50C - quite warm!).
The apartments are just a 2 minute walk from the harbour, local mini-markets, and the beach. Andreas' Apartments nearby have a pool, restaurant and excellent car-hire facilities.
Kefalos is a quiet resort even at the height of the season. Kiddies and Teenagers may find it too quiet for their liking, but my wife Helen and I thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility, views and local restaurants (see Sebastian's), and look forward to returning soon.

we stayed here from 19th may to the 2nd june 2007,just got back!we loved the location of the apartments,just behind the harbour,and a stroll away from some of the best restaurants we have been to in greece.everybody we met said they had been before and would come again,as we will.would recomend for a nice relaxing holiday in very pleasant surroundings.

Stayed at these apartments a couple of years ago.They are typical Greek accommodation and certainly adequate and always kept clean. Although we did have trouble with the toilet whilst we were there and the owner regularly had to lift the manhole cover and poke about.Whilst we were there apricots were in season and we had a regular supply given to us by the owner. Virtually next door is a small complex with a pool this is quite lively so we always used Popis Pool which is only a short distance away going across the track at the back of the Eftichia. In all we had a very pleasant stay but because of its location would not make it a future choice.

The apartments were normal size for greek sc apartments, very clean and situated mid resort, good for either end of resort or ready to go up to the old town on the hill. 2 cash machine in the area, 1 at the top of the hill slightly on the right. The other is on the main resort street that heads towards the airport. i do have pictures of the apartments and surrounding area, just e-mail me--gimili@clara.co.uk
