“Beat Ever Airbnb Accommodation”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

I have stayed in many Airbnb all over the world. I have to say that Villa Portiko is the best accommodation I have stayed in. The host Nantia is a brilliant host, the villa is spotless and very comfortable and the welcome we got from Nantia is second to none.I have no reservation in recommending this Villa to anyone out there. In fact in due course I will be returning to Villa Portiko to experience Nantia hospitality.

“Fabulous place to stay - Crete at its best”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Villa is ideally situated at a very nice place in the town of Kaliviani. The mountain and sea view is stunning. An excellent tavern is just a few steps away, Beautiful beaches are within 10 minute car drives. The villa itself is ideal. Perfectly clean, well organised even for big groups and equipped with all amenities thinkable. The kitchen and outdoor barbecue are great even for big groups. The pool is sensational, especially for the kids. We received a very warm welcome by the hosts, who presented us with homecooked local meals and food. They were extremely helpful and always reachable, even with the most difficult tasks. I recommend the villa to everybody looking for a perfect holiday location, and I am pretty sure, that we will return some day, thank you very much for the great time we had!

“Dream home to have fun, relax and take in Western Crete”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Away from any hustle and bustle but well connected and in a beautiful village setting, this is a place to make dream holidays happen. The host family where inch perfect in helping us plan our holiday and then so very kind in helping us make tweaks and then providing some very welcome gifts and cakes for our party. Highly recommended for families with kids of all ages. A well built and furnished house that works so well. socially, to cook in and to sleep in. With terraces, a pool and garden that accommodates pleasure, leisure and deep relaxation. The village has access to quiet beaches and Kissamos and Balos and other destinations are a short drive away. It also has a terrific set of restaurants just a few hundred yards away and a shop to get basics in. Some days you don't have to move far to have a trip.

“Great house, lovely village, endless hospitality!”
Reviewed 11 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed in villa Patriko for one week with our 2 children, 2 and 6, and 3 grandparents. With the four bedrooms and the attic everyone had a room to their liking. The twin bedroom with the split level/attic is ideal for parents who want to keep their children close but still have some privacy.
The villa has everything you need. The kitchen is very well equiped, especially the drawer filled with proper sharp kitchen knives, where in most holiday houses there is a huge lack of.

When we arrived late at night from our flight, tired, hungry and thirsty we were so thankful that Nantia had provided a warm meal, salad and drinks for us. The rest of the week Nantia was always available to answer our question or gives good advice about trips and restaurants.
The midweek cleaning service that was provided by Anna was also very nice. Our son especially was very exited: "fresh bed!" "the house smells so fresh!"

The location of the villa in the village of Kaliviani was an extra bonus for us. Since it was Easter weekend we experienced this in full; the church is at ears distance so you can hear the singing and the passing of the procession by our villa through the small and steep streets was memorable.

The only negative point we experienced was the boiler/water heating system that had to be turned on and off manually. But then again this was not a real obstacle for us.

Thanks to a great house, endless hospitality and this beautiful part of the island we had a perfect holiday!
