“Superb spacious villa with amazing view and great pool”
Reviewed August 14, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Staying at Elena Villa (the upper villa, so further from the road) was a fantastic experience! The Villa has an amazing view of the clear blue (cold) waters below (Vassiliki bay) and there are plenty of compfortable balconies and seating areas in which to take in the many wind surfers zipping across the bay. The pool was clean, welcoming and just perfect for the kids (as well as the adults - there is a deeper part too so you can actually swim a bit). Inside, the villa is very tastefully decorated, the beds super comfortable, and plenty of room for everything. Eirini was the perfect host, extremely hard working yet only too happy to help for any requests we had and also giving us useful tips and ideas. I can't think of anything that was not positive - maybe the owner could bargain with the owners of the few buildings below so that guests could take a short cut to the beach and restaurants? but really, the distance is not far at all, just in the heat it sometimes felt far. We would very much love to come back again!

Dear Annabel,

Thank you for your lovely review! It makes me genuinely happy to hear you had a great time! Even though some other owners are not open to bargain, I am afraid, we at Calm Wave Villas are always open to guests' suggestions and ideas, so thank you for that!

I am looking forward to seeing you again in the future!

Best Regards,
Eirini

“We come back every year. Wouldn't go anywhere else”
Reviewed August 8, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

This is the fourth year we have been coming here. We have our annual family meeting here. We are 12 people so we rent both houses and we all love it. I can only repeat all the positiv comments made here. Especially the hospitality of the owner Eirini. We had a quad that had a dead batterie and within 15 minutes she was there with her husband and they charged the batterie for us. Every once in while one of us suggests having our meeting somewhere else in greece, or a different country, but we keep coming back because its just so perfect!
Thanks Eirini

Reviewed July 23, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We stayed in the Villa Eirini as a group of friends and found the villa as described, living up to our expectations.
Our host, Eirini, was charming and incredibly helpful, going out of her way to help with queries and even picking us up from the supermarket with our groceries.
The pool is crystal clear, and the outdoor wood fired oven was fabulous for cooking.
The local village is a short walk away (albeit down a steep road) but fabulous coffee at Levanikis cafe on the waterfront.
Dinner at Amalthea, which is the closest restaurant, was a wonderful experience.
All in all, a fabulous relaxing week in beautiful Vasiliki.

“A lovely villa in a stunning location”
Reviewed September 18, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent 2 weeks in villa Elena in early September 2017 visiting our son who was working on Vasiliki beach teaching sailing. It is an easy walk from villa Elena down to Ponti with it's various tavernas and supermaket and to the Vasiliki beach. The villa very conveniently placed overlooking the whole of Vasiliki Bay from a quiet, peaceful location.
The villa is exceptionally well equipped and very comfortable and we particularly enjoyed the pool. Eirini, our host, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. I throughly recommend anyone considering a holiday in Vasiliki Bay to check out Calmwave Villas - you won't be disappointed.

“Best Villa experience ”
Reviewed September 4, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Apologies it has taken me so long to write review.
Stayed here in July whilst on holiday but have lived and worked in Vass for years, I decided to take my family out on a holiday (three children) so needed our own pool etc.
Initially I was un sure about Eirini's place as no one at the windsurfing centres knew much about it but we went out last September and had a quick look around along with meeting Eirini. The place looked ideal for us. We had my family of 4 (two kids under 4), sister family of 3 (one 1.5 year old) and my mother stay at the villa (there was room for one more).

Villa was perfect for our needs, very clean, tidy, well organised and well equipped (with and without kids).
We stayed in the lower villa... for this I am glad as my 60 year old mother struggled to walk up the very very steep driveway. Villa is approximately a 5 minute walk from Ponti beach along the road (not a nice road to walk with kids) or you can go down the steps which cuts out the road but these steps are private and the local female owner gets very touchy when you use them (even if you offer her a financial reward)... there are more steps further up the hill about 100 metres that go down to the bottom of Ponti.
We did hire a car and we did use it sometimes to ferry to mother and the kids around but if it were just us young adults I wouldn't need or use a car.

Eirini was very attentive, she came and cleaned a couple of times, the pool was great... lots of wasps this time but that was bad luck I think..

Nothing was too much to ask for Eirini, she helped us a lot with the organisation for the kids.

I highly recommend this place, it's not cheap compared to some of the air bnb etc but it's well worth the money and is very private (even with the other villa next door which you barely know is there)

Photographs of the villa don't do it justice, it feels like luxury.

We will be back again once we save up some more €€€

Thanks for a great stay.

“Thank you for a wonderful holiday! ”
Reviewed July 15, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Calmwave villas really are the best in Vasiliki. Perfect location with a wonderful view. Lovely, clean spacious villa and pool. Nothing was too much trouble - the owner made sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the windsurfing, a short walk down the road at Ponti Beach. The locals in Vasiliki and Ponti entertained us well each evening and we ate some lovely food in a variety of restaurants. We had everything we needed for a wonderful relaxing family holiday. We will be back!

“Fabulous Villa!”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for a week in July 2016, the weather was glorious and we really enjoyed the drive from the airport, seeing the wonderful scenery and then arriving in the beautiful bay of Vassiliki. The house was easy to find, just up on the hill around the first bend out of the far end of the town. It is so easy to walk in a few minutes to a restaurant, the beach or one of the sailing/windsurfing schools, but so lovely to be perched on the hill surveying the beautiful scene below. (We stayed at the villa which is higher up the hill of the two, we loved this). In the mornings it is still and quiet, just a few stand up paddle boarders out, then as the wind picks up the windsurfing beginners come onto the water. At lunch time it is a little quieter as everyone rests in the heat, then around 3-4pm the wind really picks up until sundown and it is fascinating to watch scores of windsurfers zipping up and down having a wonderful time. We had family members who sailed on catamarans and others who went windsurfing and all had a great time. I sat on a sunbed and read, swam in the lovely pool and enjoyed the beautiful view and peace & quiet.......although the cicadas are very lively!! The breeze is gentle and pleasant at the house, perfect.
The house itself is spotlessly clean, and very well maintained. You have everything you need in the kitchen to cook, or barbecue outside. Eirini was there very quickly to meet us when we arrived and came half way through the week to thoroughly clean and remake the beds with fresh linen, really lovely and you don't always get that in a holiday rental, very impressed. A lovely welcome pack greeted us of juice, milk, fresh fruit, wine etc, all great.
I really have no criticisms of this house, we all had a fab time and would thoroughly recommend it. Thank you Eirini for taking such a pride in looking after your house and making us so comfortable.
