There are not enough words to tell you how wonderful and prefect this house was. I want to go back and live there. It was centrally located, you can walk everywhere. There were 3 of us and was more than enough room as it would easily accommodate 6. The owners were beyond amazing and made it seamless. I think we made friends for life. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Crete. We will definitely go back, many times! The location, the people, the food, the restaurants, the wines and ouzo were all perfect.I have traveled alot and this is by far is my favorite. If you have never been to Greece, this is the place you want to be.
Loved my week long stay in this lovely apartment in old town Rethymno. In the midst of everything, a short walk to the beach and everything you could want in an apartment. Anna and Nikki were so nice and friendly, Nikki was still nice to us even
when we got lost in the town when we arrived and he had to come out and find us.
I have just a couple of little suggestions that would make this rental even more perfect. A full length mirror somewhere would be so helpful but again I must reiterate that I am nitpicking. Also could the instructions for getting to the apartment be revised so that if you are coming from Heraklion airport you know where to leave the motorway and perhaps if possible a little more detail to find the car park. We got terribly confused on our way in and we have driven abroad quite a lot before so that would be a great help.
It was lovely to sit on the balcony in the morning with coffee and watch the town waking up and coming to life, and to sit up on the roof terrace, particularly in the evening as the sun was coming down and watch the fort in the distance. The beautiful little streets in the old town lend themselves so well to meandering around just soaking up the atmosphere, and it's not distance at all to walk to the fort.
We found our favourite restaurant on the way to the fort - Vassilis,-lovely food and delightful, friendly people. We also enjoyed a lovely meal Loggia, which we stumbled upon down a little 'alley'(6 E. Fotaki Str.).
All in all really lovely holiday made so enjoyable by a lovely place to stay and a wonderful friendly welcome from Anna and Nikki, Thank you so much.
Felt like a home rather than a holiday flat. Very gracious owners. Well-appointed kitchen with lots of extras. Good sound system. Located directly in the old town and could walk everywhere. Good supermarket nearby. Nice roof terrace.
Excellently placed in the old town with its restaurants & bars. Spacious and nice roof terrace. Very clean and well appointed; excellent sound system, dishwasher fridge/freezer coffee machines etc. Only minor points would be a bit more crockery so you did not keep having to taking it out of the dish washer because you ran out, which is obviously petty so you can see can see I am struggling to find negatives.
This is the second time I have been to Rethymno and both times stayed with famil and friends in the Old Town Veranda House. The location is perfect, right in the town and a few steps to shopping, bars and restaurants. The house itself sleeps four people and is like a home away from home. Everything possible is available, board games, DVD's, kitchen equiped with a large fridge and all the basics to begin your holiday. A washing machine, beach towels and much much more. Highly recommend this place for a comfortable, roomy and convenient holiday home in the beautiful Rethymno.
