Medusa Apartments
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Katelios
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Medusa Studios.

Traditional Greek studios about 15 steps from the beach and another 10 to the sea which is warm, calm and shallow.

Dina, who runs the Studios is a charming lady who works so hard but always has a smile for her guests.

Our studio - Number 9 - was at the side of the building and therefore we had a beautiful sea and mountain view. When the breeze blew down from the mountain the evening, it was a welcome relief from the unrelentless Greek sun!

Apartment had everything you need for a self catering holiday. Two ring cooker, and oven ... yes, you read right, an oven, and grill and a toastie maker and kettle.


Quite a small bathroom but as we're only small ourselves it was perfect for us.

Very clean - sheets changed three times in our two weeks there and towels four.

There's a lovely little 'room' in the middle of the studios where you can grab one of the old beach toys left behind by past guests, such as lilos, buckets and spades, rubber rings and so on, and a lending library down in the reception area.

A little noisy at night from the bar opposite but that shouldn't be held against this place, it's lovely to go to bed to the sounds of laughter and gentle music - the latter of which is shut off around midnight ish.

I believe you have to pay for the air con and for the safe in the room but whilst we were there we had no need of either and as my husband dislikes air conditioning he was very happy!

I have no hesitation in recommending Medusa to anyone ... but get in quick. We have booked for next year already and the rooms have all gone now.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in July 2014. Very typical Greek furnishings. 2 rings in the kitchen and lots of crockery and cutlery. Sheets changed twice a week and towels 3 times. Location is beach front with lovely views of either the sea or mountains. Incredibly relaxed but should mention that a few rooms look out onto a grill which is open till late and there is a lot of noise late into the evening. Ok if you have the air conditioning and can close the doors but not great if the balcony doors are open. Air con 8.5 euros a day or 55 euros a week and safes 10 euros. Had an incredibly relaxed holiday. Would definitely rebook these apartments.

My wife and I, who are of more senior years, last visited this Taverna 20 years ago, when it was one of only a few in Katelios. The atmosphere, cleanliness and welcome has certainly not changed and the generosity of Ilias Papadotos who is one of the owners was excellent. Where else do you get half a litre of wine as a thank you for enjoying a wonderful meal !
The food at the Medusa is all home cooked and it appears by the very full flavours of all their dishes, that their cook must be from the village. The Taverna itself overlooks the beach and then the bay, and a more delightful setting would be difficult to find. Whilst all the small tavernas in Katelios do try to give their customers a pleasant experience, this one should not be missed.

After booking online and looking at reviews we were looking forward to a much needed week in the sun. Medusa apartments are great value for money in a brilliant location. Our apartment was spacious with all you need for basic self catering. The only downside was our double bed was made up of 2 singles pushed together, forming a wooden ridge down the middle. The owners are friendly and helpful, providing sun loungers that can be taken to the beach (just across the road). There's no pool but who needs one with the beach so close! The sea is great, gradually shelving so you can swim quite far out, many people choosing to snorkel. There's a good choice of tavernas right by the apartments but we also ventured up the hill towards the bigger hotels to eat on occasion. There is a small supermarket round the corner where you can buy essentials bread, milk etc. We enjoyed the water taxi which takes you over to Scala and also took a trip to Argostoli, however we were always pleased to get back to our quiet little haven Katelios. We would seriously consider returning as it's such good value for money and we had a thoroughly relaxing time.

Room Tip: A/C is extra but worth it!
