“Paradise”

Stayed in this superb villa for 8 nights in May, just two of us, though there is room for 8 and adequate room at that.
The villa is exactly as described and more. Stephanos obviously takes great pride in his property and wants to do everything to ensure that his guests enjoy it to the full.
It is renovated and decorated to a high standard with a beautiful master bedroom (with its unique two ensuites) and lounge with sea views.
The gardens are extensive, attractive and well tended and it is a joy to sit there gazing at the sea and the mountains through the centre piece palm tree. The pool is huge and cleaned daily. Stephanos attends daily with his pool man and therefore is available for any queries, though he is also available by phone at any time.
His directions to reach there and to obtain the keys are excellent.
The villa is within easy walking distance of shops and tavernas and also the bus stop to Rethymnon and Kissamos.
Highly recommended (and extremely reasonably priced).

Our extended (8 people) family group stayed at Villa Palma and had a wonderful time there . Close enough to all facilities such as restaurants, supermarkets, bars and beaches, the property remains secluded and private, with lovely views over the sea from the upper terraces and the lounge . Daily maintenance of the fantastic pool was done in the early morning with no disturbance to ourselves . Stefanos was the perfect host, unobtrusive but unfailingly helpful and speaking perfect English . The range of the equipment supplied was extraordinary - the kichen even had an electric egg boiler !
I can`t imagine a better place for a family holiday in this friendly part of Crete and I`ve been to the island many times .

We stayed at Villa Palma with our 12 yr old granddaughter and 20 year old grandson and his girlfriend. The property was about a 10 min walk from the beach and in a private location, not overlooked in any way. The property was well presented, very clean and had every facility you could wish for as a holiday maker including scales to weigh your bags before your return and even a for pump for inflating lilos etc.. The pool was brilliant and serviced daily. There were plenty of sun beds and outside seating in a wonderful green garden. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bedrooms spacious. Our host Stephanos was welcoming and helpful. The split level worked very well for us and enabled privacy when required but enabled us to spend many happy hours together as a family. We had a wonderful time together here and I strongly recommend Villa Palma.
