“Nice, quiet mondern villa with excelent views with issues”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The good

Villa contained two bedrooms not one as the description tells. The villa (which is actually a double house with two houses sharing the same pool), was nice, modern and well equipped. We had cleaning and exchange of bed linen and towels four times during our stay, which was a very pleasant experience. Four sunbeds (though rather worn) was present. The views to mountains and see was really nice. Area was very silent (a part from a constant barking dog). The pool was cleaned often (but still some green residue on the sides was never removed). Washing machine and stove was new and worked fine. Three air-conditions made it easy to control the inside temperature to our liking.

The not so good

Dishwasher did not work even though we explicit asked for this and complained about it on the first day.
Area around the pool and house was poorly maintained with weeds growing everywhere and the pebbles-area where the sunbeds and parasol where located was filled with some kind of plastic materials. A large tree hindered access to the roof-terrace (no shade there) and to the outdoor shower making the latter virtually inaccessible.
Kitchen was equipped with worn-out utensils and only one wineglass. No real shade on the terrace, which due to the orientation was in full sun from late morning to afternoon but in shade in early morning and late afternoon (sic). Lack of places to put our things. Cheap and not so comfortable chairs and tables inside and outside (e.g. no cushions on kitchen, terrace chairs).

Generally, Sfakaki is a dirty and poorly maintained area (even with Crete standards). The nearby beach was fill with garbage, no access to showers or changing facilities. Restaurants and taverns in the nearby area was not interesting. We ended up driving to the Georgopolis bay to bathe and dinner everyday.

“perfect vacation week in Sfakaki”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

the house was exactly what we were looking for. we stayed one week with my wife, her mother and my 7-year old son. we were looking for a calm place, "family-friendly", and villa alexandra was the perfect base for our farniente week: the house is fully equiped, we did not need anything more, it's very clean and well-designed/finished, air-condition worked properly in all the rooms, the swimming pool was also a big plus with the high temperatures, it's close to the beach which is nice for children, sand, clear and plane water, not too much tourists. also close to many tavernas with really good greek cuisine and animations. by car it's easy to get to Rethymno which is a bigger town, really mediterranean atmosphere and worth visiting. about the house I also liked the roof were you can at night spend a little time peacefully looking at the surroundings. the service people were really nice to us, really helpful.

Liked best: the overall equipment of the house, proximity of beach/shops/restaurant
Liked least: a few water cuts but due to the water company (the same on all the island during this season)
