All we can do is reiterate the glowing reviews already posted about the residence. The location is wonderful: its elevated position means that there is a beautiful view across the bay to the islands of Giali and Nisyros, and the distant Turkish coast, both from the apartments and from the pool. (It also means that if you are walking, either up to the village or down to the sea front, there will always be an 'uphill' element to help counteract the copious amounts of food available in the tavernas…) The beautifully landscaped complex is so quiet and relaxing. Costas and Lionel are the perfect hosts, providing all the information you may need about the local area, from recommended tavernas and beaches to insider tips about local places of interest. We felt quite smug knowing where to find the key to the monastery at Zini when we walked there one day ! Together with Christina, who comes to clean and change linen every other day, the 'on site team' is better than you could find almost anywhere. We stayed in the Apelis apartment on the ground floor, which has a lovely new covered patio area next to it, but each of the four apartments seems to have its own good points. The surrounding area is also beautiful - Kefalos is at the wilder end of the island, away from the main tourist areas, and has many quiet beaches, in some cases accessible only by fairly precarious tracks. We were glad to have a 4x4 to be able to explore the area. There are also opportunities to go for a hike, to enjoy the surroundings at closer quarters. Kos is not a large island, so it’s easy to get anywhere without too long a journey. We enjoyed exploring the western end of the island, both on foot & by car, and also visited Kos town and the castles at Antimachea and Palio Pyli. It's also possible to take a 3 islands cruise (including Pserimos & Kalymnos), and a trip across to the fascinating volcanic island of Nysiros. All in all, we would highly recommend a stay in Kos, and particularly at Kefalosbay Residence. You can be sure of a warm welcome and of being well looked after during your stay. We didn’t want to leave, and would love to return in the future.

Words are useless to describe an holiday here. I have been in Kefalosbay Residence in 2005, 2006 and now again. With my family we very seldom come back in the same place, but 14 years ago we do. And now, due to coronavirus constraints, we wanted to be sure of condition of cleaning of residence and look for beautiful and wide beaches. So, it was natural to think at Kefaklosbay Residence and Kos. After all these years we found the same cleanliness of the apartments, better than in a hotel, the same kindness of Kostas an Lionel, the same care of all particulars to make feel the guest like at home. But first of all it is not changed the stunning landscape you can see directly from your apartment or from the swimming pool while you are enjoying the hydromassage. Last but not least, Kefalos is the right place to stay in Kos, far from the windy and overcrowded beaches of the North, close to the best South and West beaches Polemi, Agios Stefanos, Paradissos. Nothing else to add, just see the photo: reality is even better.

Had the best time here at Kefalos Bay Residence, Costas and Lionel cannot do enough for you. There are 4 apartments on the site and the owner also has his own accommodation there too. Costas and Lionel really do think of ever little thing to make the stay perfect from even when we got there late there was fresh pizza waiting for us. The apartment was spotless and cleaned everyday with having panoramic views from every room. The location is peaceful and quiet just what we needed, there is a beautiful infinity pool that is fresh water and oxygenated by a water fall, there are lovely landscaped gardens, nothing was too much trouble and of course we have booked again for next year....

A nice niche residence with a fantastic international flavor. We were welcomed like old friends and the apartment was ready well on time. We were so impressed with the location and the overall attention to details we could see everywhere. Definitely an excellent compromise in between a private accommodation and a high class resort. Management is attentive and they are excellent in almost anticipating your needs. We will make this a regular annual call.
