We booked these apartments direct with the owner. Very helpful and prompt replies to any queries. Stayed in a 2 bed apartment at the front of the complex. A small balcony but with a fantastic view across the bay to Ithaca. The complex has a village feel with plenty of places to sit and chill. The pool area has a fantastic view across the sea and down to the village itself. It is kept spotlessly clean and serves a decent range of snacks.

The apartments are a good size and cleaned daily to a high standard. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen from a corkscrew to a combi oven. Air conditioning is effective and included in the price. A smallish bathroom but always plenty of hot water. Beds a bit to firm for my liking but the mattresses seemed new.
Friendly, peaceful and a few minutes walk from the village centre.

The staff at the Makis studios are all very friendly and helpful. It's family run and it shows as they truly care.

The pool was very clean and a welcome retreat for the temperature. The sunbathing area isn't that big, however to be honest I never had a problem getting a bed (I was up there early as I needed the shade from about 10.30 onwards as it was so hot!) as people were off and about during the day. There are fabric style (which are more comfortable) and plastic beds. Be warned though there are no umberellas provided - if you want one, you'll need to buy one from one of the shops (mine cost 6.5E) but they split easily enough into the back of the sunbead if you raise the back rest up. There's also a pool snack area which is in the shade selling basic stuff like toasties, chips and hamburgers and it has a great view over the town and harbour.
Some locals came to use the pool on Saturday (I was only there a week so not sure if this is a regular thing or not) and guests from another Olympic property nearby are also free to use the pool.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner but I never ate there so can't comment.

There are studios and apartments in the complex. I was a lone traveller and had booked a studio with garden views but that wasn't what I got. My room was located in the row behind the main building & restaurant at the end and opposite the kitchen (room number 11) so it could be noisy when trying to relax on the balcony. If I'd been there with my hubby and staying for 2 weeks I would have asked to be moved, however realistically for the amount of time I was spending in there I knew I could put up with it for a week. The room itself was what you'd expect from SC accommodation in Greece, basic and functional. There was a small wardrobe, twin beds, an easy chair, dressing table and stool at one end, leading into the bathroom. The bathroom needed a bit of attention for some cracked tiles but it was very clean and even had a shower curtain which in my experience in Greece is rare. There was a big mirror and a small shelf for storage. There was always plenty of hot water, even at 7.30am on the morning of my departure, which I was very impressed with (in Greece supplies can be hit and miss). The kitchen area had a fridge, a kettle, small table and chairs and a strange looking oven come hotplate contraption. Basic cutlery etc where supplied. Each room has an air-conditioning unit (payable locally for 5E per day).

The room was serviced regularly and towels etc. changed often.

This was my second visit to Agia Efimia and my first to the Makis. I would stay there again but the next time I'd book direct with owner and make sure I got a different room.

Apartment number 11 was ours for 2 weeks during July 07.Absolutely fine with air con available at 70 euros for the fortnight.Pool nice but no parasols so had to purchase one.Ate at their restaurant 3 times and always enjoyed the food and the staff were all very friendly. Rooms always cleaned well and towels changed regularly. All in all would recommend to anyone that would like basic greek accommodation to explore Kefalonia.
