Fantastic villa, gorgeous location!!
Villa Jakita is a wonderful holiday home in an absolutely fantastic position. The views all around are AMAZING, every window having a visual delight to behold! We are a family of 6 and the villa was perfect in size for us, more than enough space for all of us and equipped with everything we needed - a real home from home. The showers in particular were great, children's hair rinsed in under 30 seconds they are so powerful! It is a beautifully designed villa, light, bright and airy and really very comfortable. The location for us with 4 children was perfect, no near neighbours, in fact no buildings in front, behind or to the left of the property (other than some lovely old windmills). The closest neighbours (delightful) about 200m away, far enough not to feel overlooked. The property doesn't really have a garden as such, but the lovely pool and surrounding patio area are spacious, well equipped and nicely private. Th front garden and sides are mainly hard standing but beautifully landscaped. Our 4 children didn't need anything more than the pool, so it was perfect for us Small children would need watching in the pool as there are quite big drops from 3 sides, but this does make for a spectacular swimming experience!! It would be hard to fault this property. Elounda itself is lovely, a happy, safe, friendly little place with a HUGE choice of places to eat. We were there for 3 weeks and didn't have a single bad meal, food delicious everywhere, all 4 of our children tucked in to the local food with relish and they are all vegetarian - plenty of choice. All the staff we met were lovely, the villa was cleaned twice weekly with fresh towels and bedding each time and the local knowledge and insider information they have made for some great trips and good food! There is a sweet little taverna just 2 minutes slow walk down the hill from the villa, well worth a visit or two. To sum up, we have been to some lovely places as a family on our various holidays and our rule is we never go back to the same place twice, but having stayed in Villa Jakita and with so much to see and do on Crete, we would be sorely tempted to break that rule for the first time! A highly recommended holiday home.
