“Absolutely fantastic stay with great and very caring landlord”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We recommend most heartily, the spacious & luxurious Villa, that Mr. Giakoumakis Vasilis, let us enjoy during our holiday in Crete. The entire house is well ventilated & very comfortable for 5 families, we were a large group, including a baby, for whom a special bed was made available and a high chair. The villa was well stacked with every convenience & facility we required. The swimming pool with turquoise blue water, was clean & our main delight. The bar-bbq was a facility that we used and found very enjoyable and Mr Giakoumakis was always around to assist, advise and even take care of for us. There was so much space for the children to run around & play & the view of the entire area was wonderful, the blue sea in the distance & the well kept garden with lots of fruit trees & vegetables as well. It was a home away from home & a virtual paradise to enjoy for a short time.

“Fantastic villa in an excellent location”

We (party of 8 adults and 7 children) had a wonderful stay in this stunning villa. Fantastic pool area, with a very large pool (if anything the pool is even bigger than it appears on the pictures), lovely extensive gardens (which are totally secure - i.e. no danger of children getting out or anyone else getting in) with orange, apple, fig and pomegranate trees and a large vegetable plot where we could pick tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and grapes. There are also large outdoor areas suitable for children to play in and a table tennis and pool tables. The villa was extremely clean when we arrived and a cleaner came daily and did a very thorough job of keeping it clean throughout our stay.
The villa is set on a secluded hillside above Rethymno with great views down to the sea and it is possible to walk into the outskirts of town where there are a few shops and Taverna's. It is also possible to walk to the beach, although this takes around 20 minutes and would be a demanding walk back with children. You will need to hire a car to get further into the centre of Rethymno or into the Old Town.
The villa owner, Mr Vasilis is extremely friendly and helpful and even took some of our party for a drive around the area on the first morning to help us get our bearings and show us where the best shops, beaches and restaurants were. He also offered to take us out on his boat.
Rethymno is lovely, very pretty old town, great scenery, very nice beaches (warm sea, nice sand, clean and very quiet considering we were there at the height of the season).
We have been on many villa holidays before but this was easily the best we have ever stayed in and I would recommend it without any reservation - really can't think of any critical comments to make at all and we may well be back there next year!

“Fantastic villa with lot of convienience and agreat scenery”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A great place with lot of space and nice areas for everything.
Easy to get both Rethymnon old town, shops, restaurants and beaches , Although youdont need it. The villa is so generous so you could (if you want) spend all your vacation in the garden. The owner is a real gentleman and very friendly.

“Perfect blend of luxury and comfort, superb villa”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just returned from a 10 day stay in this fabulous villa, we were expecting luxury from the photos but the reality was even better, which was a refreshing surprise. All rooms are huge the facilities exceptional, the games room and outside were great for keeping kids and adults happy, we had a few days of bad weather but no one was bored, at any point, due to the time of year the pool was very cold so didn't get used as much as we wanted but it was a fantastic pool with a large 1m deep area that then went down to 3m at the deep end, so fantastic for jumping diving etc with no concerns about hitting the bottom. There were so many pluses about the house we couldn't name them all, but it is beautifully maintained, huge, and has everything you could ever need, the design and facilities have been thought through exceptionally well, the ground were beautiful, the gardener attended almost everyday as does the cleaner. A car is a def must as the house is on the outskirts of town but only 5 mins in the car, we always found somewhere nice to eat, the owners are so helpful and accommodating anything you need they will happily arrange for you if they can, we had two meals cooked and delivered to us at the house by the owners wife and both times the food was lovely and there was lots of it :-), traditional dishes which was a lovely change to some of the standard menu fare that you get in the touristy restaurants. The owners also have a yacht which you can hire, it was an incredible day out and worth every penny if you looking for an extra wow factor. We had a small issue with there not being enough hot water for us all to shower in the morning and evening but it was a very minor thing for us overall and we worked a system that meant it didn't bother us. The house is also fantastically set up for children in terms of safety gates all around the accesses to the pool, so our little one could run around on the terrace in complete safety, also the whole perimeter is enclosed so we felt secure in letting the kids have a bit of freedom, they also loved the play park area in the grounds, again all very well looked after. The owners looked after us so well and I would not hesitate in recommending this house to anyone, we also found dealing with Kostas, the booking agent for the house, very easy and a great experience he was really helpful and quick to respond, so we would like to thank you all for making our booking and holiday so great.

“Great villa, great comfort, great relax.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Me and my family have spent a great 10 days in this beautiful estate. Everything has bene perfect and we never enjoyed such a relaxing holiday. I want to let you know that what has been different from all our precedent experiences has been the presence and kindness of Mr. Vasilis, the owner. He Is a very nice person always ready to solve any problem..... This Is simply unique!
