“A real gem”
Reviewed 14 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We booked this villa with friends last November and we were delighted with our choice. Before we even arrived at the villa, Elefheria welcomed us off the water taxi and had arranged transport. The villa is extremely spacious in a beautiful setting over looking a small bay just around the corner from Gaios Harbour. Eleftheria made us extremely welcome and we had an enormous hamper including; bread, butter, jam, marmalade, coffee, milk, bacon, eggs, fruit juice, fruit & wine! The kitchen had every modern convenience and had everything we needed. Our bedrooms were spacious and comfortable all with en suites and air conditioning. We enjoyed a very relaxing week luxuriating in our surroundings. The grounds are vast and we had shade or sun wherever we wanted it. We also enjoyed a couple of BBQs, charcoal and everything apart from food supplied.
Eleftheria came every other day to and cleaned the villa, and every other day to check we were ok and clean the pool out. In the middle of our stay she changed our bedding and towels, something we have never had before for a weeks stay.
We used the washing machine nearly everyday as we had previously spent a week on a flotilla holiday and clothes were stale. The only caution I would add is, don't try to use the washing machine if the air con is on as it tripped out the electrics. It wasn't a problem as long as you know.
We certainly didn't have a problem with lack of hot water, there was lashings for the four of us adults to have one shower after another.
Villa Levantina is in a superb location just an easy five minute walk from the vibrant harbour of Gaios with its great restaurants and amenities.
We had to leave at the unearthly hour of 6.30 am and we were surprised and delighted that Eleftheria came along to the water taxi stop to say "Goodbye" which was above and beyond the call of duty. I would thoroughly recommend this Villa and would like to say a big Thank You to Eleftheria for such a wonderful relaxing holiday.

We stayed for a week at Villa Levantina in Gaios Paxos in early July 2017.
The villa is extremely well located being about ten minutes walk from the centre of Gaios, a really vibrant,fun village. We had four kids (aged from 19 to 23) with us who could make the most of the night life after we had finished in the restaurants. The villa has very panoramic views, an excellent outdoor seating/pool area and a small rocky cove just across the road which is great for swimming. It is clean but tired with old furniture and faded pictures.
The electrics and plumbing are old. Running two hair driers at once regularly fused the whole house. The old showers always fluctuated from very hot to very cold depending on whoever else was running water in the house. Only one of three gas rings worked on the cooker.
Also be aware that the accomadtion is not the entire villa as the top floor is actually a separate unoccupied apartment. This is not evident from the photos.
We also had some big issues with the cost. We initially paid approximately £2000 for the villa and had planned to be just my family of four. However we decided to bring a further four friends as we had the space. We were informed that this would cost an additional £900 and this was non negotiable. I was surprise as I assumed we were renting the 'villa'. The company we went through (Home Away) were of no help in sorting this. Other than an additional set of towels and sheets for one room we did not get anything extra for this big increase. To aggravate the situation a window handle fell off in my hand on the first day and I was presented with a 25euro repair bill ! A fairly blunt conversation ensued and the owner picked it up.
We are regular users of villas and I have never come across this sort of attitude before.
I would however strongly recommend Paxos as a holiday destination and Gaios is a lovely, vibrant village but without losing any of it's authentic Greek feel.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our villa.
We are very sorry, if our villa did not meet your needs.
About our accommodation, our Villa Levantina, is noτ different from what is shown in the photos in all the sites that we collaborate with. About ''electrics", our villa can be operate at the same time, 5 air conditions, 2 refrigerators, 1 TV, 1 dishwasher and a washing machine without any problems, maybe your hairdryer was wet and security system, dropped its general power. About "plumbing", the system with the boiler we use is new one and we never had a problem or a complaint from a visitor till now, however we thank for the observation we will check it out. About "gas rings", our villa's safety oven as well as the gas rings all work perfectly, as we showed you in the presentation of the house during the check-in. About "top floor", the description of the house indicates the square meters and that the whole house is located on the ground floor. About your "big issues with the cost", our prices are online and you were obliged to read them before do the booking. If you had read them, you would have seen that we had better prices for smaller groups, also that the prices are based on 4 guests and there is an additional cost for every one guest more than 4. I think that's how pricing is, in most of villas and hotels in the world. If not always, at least for the middle season. About "an additional set of towels and sheets for one room", we offer to all our guests a set of towels, pool towels, bathrobes, slippers, shampoos, shower gel, hand soaps as well as a welcome drink, coffees, fruits and try to meet every need one of our guests has. Also, I do not think that 4 extra guests were able to sleep in one room. About ''window handle", the window was in the opening tilting and you pull it till the handle was broken. But this can happen, no problem. In our conversation, if you remember, you offended us, by saying that we are dishonest. But we continued to do our best we could for you and your holiday. However, you forgot to mention that you asked for our help, for your transportation to and from the port and we did help you, of course, without any extra cost. You also forgot to mention, for the help you asked to book and pay for you the hydrofoil tickets. Those tickets that you did not want to pay for in the end and you did after several requests. To close our answer, we would like to thank you for choosing Villa Levantina for your holidays and to promise that we will take seriously into account all your observations and complaints so that we can continue to be better. To finish our answer to your review, we would like to thank you for choosing Villa Levantina for your vacation and to promise that we will take seriously all your observations and complaints so that we can continue to be better.

We stayed in this astonishing villa for 15 days and we left with the best memories. Spectacular views, large rooms, private pool, big garden and even more. Very good value for money. Worth to visit the island and stay. The owners was very friendly making sure everything running really great. By the time of our stay we celebrate my name day with friends and Eleutheria cook for us a delicious supper with fresh fish straight from the Ionio pelagos. We looking forward to visit the island.
