“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Beautiful villa in lovely surroundings, with very easy access to the sea and local tavernas( 5 - 10 minutes walk).
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa and it was a great base to explore Western Crete from. The weather was very hot and it was great to have a refreshing dip in the pool after a hot day sightseeing. The veranda provided a nice shaded area where we could enjoy meals.
Katerina was very friendly and helpful, checking on us most days, organising taxis, keeping the villa clean and also provided a welcome pack of goodies to eat and drink.
It was a definite bonus having use of a washing machine and also a barbecue but unfortunately there were no barbecue implements.
We would gladly recommend this villa, and only a few details such as no air conditioning in the downstairs bedroom and a lack of some kitchen equipment ( eg not a full set of 6 wine glasses or any serving dishes), prevent this from being a completely five star review.

“Going back for sure***!!!!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Stayed at Villa Argo last year for 2 weeks for a friends summer getaway. Had an amazing time. The owners are very nice and welcoming, so is the housekeeper who made sure everything was perfect while staying there. The villa is nicely designed, very clean, and has a nice pool area. Will definitely stay here next time we visit Crete again.

“Spacious villa in secluded enclave near the sea”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Villa Argo was spacious and situated in a secluded enclave just on the outskirts of Maleme village. A short-cut led to the stony beach nearby. Katerina was wonderful, cleaning the villa thoroughly every couple of days. Her helpfulness and efficiency in attending to any difficulties we had was so much appreciated.

Liked best: The spaciousness of the property and the fact that it was cleaned regularly
Liked least: There was a problem with a strong smell in the upstairs bathroom at night but Katerina is on to it so I'm sure it will be resolved soon! The addition of a dishwasher would be a lovely luxury!

“Great vacation”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Absolutely love this place. Very nice area with a nice private pool as well. Extremely clean and very well decorated. My boyfriend and I were so sad when we had to leave. We have traveled to Crete many times and have never stayed somewhere as nice as this.

“left speechless”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed at Villa Argo for three nights for a friends bachelor party. It was very clean, comfortable and a lot better live then in photos. The beach was a 5 minute walk away and the nightlife was a 5 minute drive away. Very pleased with everything and would definitely recommend it. Great value for price paid.

“Best accomodation in the area”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent 2 weeks with our two teenaged kids at Argo. Argo and other 3 houses are located in a beautiful olive grove. The house exceeded our expectations and was far better than the pictures showed. Even our kids loved it. The house is very comfortable and is only a 5 min walk from the beach. The best part was the back porch that had a dining area in the shade and a relaxing pool with lounging chairs in the sun. It was very private and comfortable. The grounds were well maintained and there was a lot of open green space. We also enjoyed the smell of Mediterranean plants such as linden and basil.

The best part was Katerina, the housekeeper and caretaker of the house. She checked on us daily to see if we need anything. One morning she surprised us with a delicious freshly baked cake. She went above and beyond to make sure we taken care off. She even helped us take care of a stray cat that was wounded. She even offered to take care of it once we left. She went unbelievably above and beyond to help us and the kitty (which you may find around he property if you visit). Katerina is amazingly considerate, caring, and helpful and she does everything she can to ensure a pleasant stay for the guests.
