Our stay at Villa Kaylu was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend this unique place.
The villa was extremely clean, and provided all the amenities we needed for a long stay: wifi, washer/dryer, full kitchen, outdoor grille, big screen TVs, gaming, table tennis, foosball, bicycles. They even take care of the little details like power cords to charge your devices. The pool is very clean, and provided hours of relaxation for the kids. Plus, the views... we cannot say enough about the incredible views from the villa. It is very quiet and peaceful.
There is a great market walking distance from the villa, and George (the owner) is super friendly and helpful. They have most of what you need for your stay. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (we would also recommend Takis Taverna, which is a very family friendly place). Getting to the various beaches is easy, and also provides many restaurants, shops, and watering holes for the family.
In summary, we highly recommend this location and property. There were several days that we just stayed at the villa, and spent great family time. I am not sure I can think of anything that is missing from the property!
The villa is extremely well equipped. The cinema room with playstation is a great option for kids or those rare, bad weather days. There were about 8 included, and high quality mountain bikes, a brand new ping pong and Fusbal table, and an amazing indoor / outdoor AV system which kept us in the holiday spirit with music all day and night!
The reasonably close towns of Placca and Almyrida were both great options for groceries or a night out. Having your own car is a must though, as the roads are steep and you're not too close to anything else.
Would love to return and would certainly recommend Villa Karma to any interested parties looking for a brand new villa for their family and friends in search of incredible views, great amenities and friendly support staff.
