We have just returned from a weeks stay with our friends, who booked the villa and without doubt, it was one of the very best we have ever stayed in. The owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The welcome pack was the best we have had and you really must try his Raki, it is so smooth! We all agreed that the villa was beautifully designed and appointed, very clean and with everything you could wish for. The pool and garden area is a lovely place to relax.
The location is fantastic. You just walk to the end of the garden, cross a tiny road and you are on a lovely clean beach. The sea is clear and safe. We also enjoyed the mountain views to the rear from the terrrace. It is a great place to have a pre evening meal drink and what with the views and the peace and quiet, it made for a very enjoyable stay.
There is an excellent supermarket close by and the reliable bus service into Chania also stops there. It's location on the edge of the village means there is a little walk into Kalives, but it isn't overly long and there are a number of very good restaurants.
We all felt the Villa was excellent value and would all like to return to use it as a base to explore other parts of Crete.
My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights in April/May 2017. The villa absolutely exceeded expectations as it is actually much more beautiful and spacious than it looks in the photos. The location is fantastic, it is literally on the beach but there is a long garden filled with interesting plants, vines, artichokes, honeysuckle and trees which give you privacy if you are lounging by the pool. At the back of the house there is a stunning view of the mountains and there is an olive grove next to the house which is really lovely, especially in Spring as it was full of spring flowers all around the olive trees. The villa itself is probably the best equipped holiday rental i have ever had. Even the hairdryer was great! The shower in the downstairs double room is definitely the best I have had in Greece! We tried to book to come back in June, that's how much we loved it but unfortunately it wasn't available for our dates. I really can't think of anything negative to say, it was just perfect and Antonis was really helpful and friendly - his own olive oil is delicious and you must try his home made raki too!
beautiful location right next to the beach and perfect for supermarkets (100yds) and tavernas/ bars. Close to the airport and easy access to Chania for days out. The Villa is finished to a very high standard and has been very well equipped to make your stay home from home. Antonis the owner was very helpful and couldnt do enough to ensure our stay was perfect. Would definitely highly recommend and we will be visiting again !!!
Even better than it looks in the photos. Beautifully designed with lots of lovely details. Antonis made us feel very welcome and the box of goodies was very much appreciated. The house is really comfortable and we love the wood stove for the cool evenings we had. Looking forward to coming back again.
The house is beautifully crafted. It doesn't look like a place that you just sleep in, is a home. The pool has a good size and depth, perfect for kids and adults alike. The owner and his wife are lovely and they will help you and provide anything you might need. (You won't need anything. They have thought of everything you might need.) The house is clean and there are air conditioners in every room. It has internet access bare in mind though that sometimes for a few minutes you might not have access since is a rural area and the network is poor. The only reason I might not recommend the house is for people that don't drive and would like to spend a lot of time at Chania. The taxi can be expensive so if you want to go to a lot of places then I would suggest to rent a car.
