Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Maleme - Villa Bamboo

2 Bedrooms 2 Bathroom with sea views *Wheelchair Accessible*

This new villa sits amongst olive trees on the outer limits of Pirgos, a little hamlet 15 mins walk from the calm village of Maleme. Combining an uncluttered and modern interior with an external finish embellished by touches borrowed from the ancient Minoan era, the resultant cocktail of decorative themes creates a totally unique style. Dark clay colours rub shoulders with pale creams and pastel shades both inside and out, where they contrast strikingly with the light blue water of the pool.

General Information

Cream varnished wood floors, laid throughout the Villa reflect the light and create an uncluttered style in the spacious living area, while the rich brown of the leather sofa and dining chairs introduces a contrast of colour. The starring feature though is by courtesy of Mother Nature herself with gorgeous sea views through the practically floor to ceiling windows, over the olive trees and neighbouring roof tops.

Partially hidden behind a dividing wall, the well equipped kitchen has a clear run of white cupboards and work tops with a fridge freezer, full sized cooker, washing machine and a small dishwasher concealed within. A breakfast bar with seating for four overlooks the pool and patio area through a large picture window.

A small internal hallway with a full length mirror and floor to ceiling storage leads to the bedrooms, each of which has its own spacious shower/wet room with contemporary fittings.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed and colour washed in an intimate shade of red wine, lifted by the subtle use of bamboo in the headboards and door screen. There is a pine wardrobe and dressing table and, more lovely sea views through large windows.

On the opposite side of the hallway is the very spacious twin bedroom with a dressing table and ample wardrobe space. Windows face the cool green of the olive groves.

There is a extra folding bed in the living area for a 5th person/child.

Outside, an extended bamboo awning creates a comfortable shaded area over a large table and quite unique handmade Minoan style chairs, where dining is accompanied by magnificent sea views. Sunbeds with comfortable cushions further enhance the poolside terrace.

The lovely 10m x 5m pool itself is perfect for those who like to immerse themselves in a more genteel manner as a gradual slope descends around the perimeter, leaving the sudden plunge from the edge to the more active.

Just 20 mins walk away from Maleme, Villa Bamboo's within an easy reach of shops, tavernas and beaches and a bus stop, if you do want to travel further afield. Thus it will be of appeal to those who would prefer to leave the car at home.

NB Wider doorways and spacious wet rooms make this single level Villa suitable for wheelchair users. The pool has also been designed to have access not only for the more nervous swimmer, but also for wheelchair users.There is a plastic wheelchair freely available to anable infirm persons to get into the pool.Please ask for further details.

I was born in the village (Maleme) I studied economics in Greece and management in the UK (Aston University MBA)I worked for a ferry shipping company for more than 20 years and few years ago I came back to my place of birth where I produce organic olive oil and manage two properties. I put a lot of work in the construction of the house and I enjoy welcoming quests and manual work on the farm.

Stefanos Paraskakis purchased this villa in 1890

For its modern design by an architect school friend of mine.

A lonely villa which even though it is close to some local properties is completely private. It has all you could want as far as equipment inside the villa is concerned and the bedrooms are very spacious. Outsideyou can 'bake' in the sun on the excellent lounger taking time out to walk into the pool to cool down, or if the heat is too much the bamboo awning allaws you to cool down but still enjoy being outside.The villa is close enough to Maleme to walk easily for shopping or for a early morning run(!) on the long paved sea front or a relaxing evening meal..

A DREAM HOUSE: VILLA BAMBOO - VILLA MALEME!

  • 5 out of 5
For 20 years we spend all our vacations in summer cottages. We have never found such a comfortable, chic and clean house and still no so circumspect, attentive and friendly renter! In the approach he looked after late arriving dog special feed, provided as a bridging structure for substitute and purchased dogbowls. Because we arrived late-in the evening, the fridge was filled with all what one needed for an extensive dinner and breakfast. As a surprise there was, besides, good wine as well as olive oil and olive soap from own production.

The house lies quietly with the local edge of the nice and touristically clear place Maleme. All rooms are big and bright, to each of both bedrooms an own shower-bath is linked up. From the double bed of the bedroom one looks directly at the sea. The furniture is in every detail modern and tastefully, there are excellent mattresses and numerous, comfortable seat possibilities. Unusually for Greece: a big wardrobe- offer, a kitchen in every detail equipped with all conceivable household effects, pleasant air-conditionings, stable window-insect protection and constantly hot water are available! Even to an emergency lighting and fire extinguisher was thought!

The terrace is as generous and provided possibly half with a roof, under which there is always a shadow place. Stable comfortable wooden armchairs and -benches as well as a big table invite for staying. The big pool with running around ramp (water depth from 0 to 1.70 m) also offers for children and disabled persons pure swimming pleasure! In the evening the terrace with pool can be lighted up atmospheric. From the undeveloped outskirt area one has a look at the sea and the place Maleme; in counterdirection on an olive grove and the mountains. Directly beside the terrace there is a park possibility; next on the in-house turning place.

The whole property was found in flawless nursing and cleaning state. The pool was cleaned in each case early in the morning (because of our dogs daily), without one perceived the work of the "pool-boy" acoustically. Twice the week the house was cleaned and bedclothes as well as towels was changed. Is to be emphasised that by owner, pool-boy and the quick, diligent cleaning fairy Daniela was respected by continual arrangement (in English) very much to disturb not the guests!

Our stay cheat 4 weeks and we will come again in a few years with pleasure!

(We ask mistake to excuse; we are Germans)

PEACEFUL PLACE ON CRETE

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed one week in this very clean and well-maintained villa.

The information given on the site was accurate,anything you need was there.

The owner, who lives in the neighbourhood, is very kind and helpful.

The place is quiet and peaceful: there are no direct neighbours and birds are singing in the olive-trees of the surrounding garden.

The kitchen is very well equiped, we had our diners at home, Crete has very good fresh and well-tasting products.

The environment is perfect for making short and long walks.

It was our sixth holiday on Crete, the next one we hope to spend in villa Bamboo!

We highly recommend the villa to you. You won't regret it!

Germ en Jellie Martini

We waren een weekje in deze zeer schone en goed ingerichte villa.

De informatie op de site klopt helemaal: alles is er gewoon.

De eigenaar, die in de omgeving woont, is erg aardig en behulpzaam.

De plek is erg rustig en vredig: er zijn geen buren en de vogeltjes zingen in de olijfbomen van de omringende tuin.

De keuken is erg goed uitgerust, wij hebben thuis gekookt.
Kreta heeft heel goede verse, gezonde en heerlijke produkten!

De omgeving is erg geschikt voor korte en lange wandelingen.

Het was onze 6e keer op Kreta, we hopen de volgende trip naar Kreta weer in villa Banboo door te brengen!

Als je wilt boeken: doen, je zult er geen spijt van krijgen!

RELAXING HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
Really relaxing holiday at Villa Bamboo

We spent two weeks at Villa Bamboo in September and we really enjoyed it. The house was amazing. Very clean, very big and everything worked perfect.
Stefanos, the renter, was very friendly. He supported us wherever he could, told us places we should visit and always stayed in contact with us. For example: he asked us, when we usually get up in the morning, so he could water the plants, clean the pool and bring out the garbage from behind the house before we get up and without disturbing us. The house itself is a little bit up the hill with a great view on Maleme and the sea. There are no direct neighbors so you are really on your own and no one can disturb you. You can reach several shops and the beach in a few minutes when you go by car. There is also a bus which will take you to Chania in about half an hour and costs € 2,40 per person. The cleaner came twice a week and did her job really well.
In conclusion: If you want a relaxing holiday, a clean house with plenty room, a great terrace with pool and a very courteous renter Villa Bamboo is the right choice for you. Greetings to Stefanos Christian & Johanna

EIN TRAUMHAUS: VILLA BAMBOO - VILLA MALEME

  • 5 out of 5
Seit 20 Jahren verbringen wir alle unsere Urlaube in Ferienhäusern. Noch nie haben wir ein solch komfortables, chices und sauberes Haus angetroffen und noch keinen derartig umsichtigen, aufmerksamen und freundlichen Vermieter! Im Vorfeld kümmerte er sich um verspätet eintreffendes Hundespezialfutter, sorgte als Überbrückung für Ersatz und schaffte Hundenäpfe an. Da wir spätabends eintrafen, war der Kühlschrank mit Allem gefüllt, was man für ein ausgiebiges Abendessen und Frühstück benötigte. Als Überraschung gab es nebenbei guten Wein sowie Olivenoel und -seife aus eigener Produktion.

Das Haus liegt ruhig am Ortsrand des schönen und touristisch überschaubaren Ortes Maleme. Alle Räume sind groß und hell, jedem der beiden Schafzimmer ist ein eigenes Duschbad angeschlossen. Vom Doppelbett des Schlafzimmers schaut man direkt aufs Meer. Die Möblierung ist bis ins Detail modern und geschmackvoll, es gibt hervorragende Matratzen und zahlreiche, bequeme Sitzmöglichkeiten. Ungewöhnlich für Griechenland: ein großes Schrankangebot, eine bis ins Detail mit allem erdenklichen Hausrat ausgestattete Küche, angenehme Klimaanlagen, stabiler Fenster-Insektenschutz und ständig heißes Wasser stehen zur Verfügung! Selbst an eine Notbeleuchtung und Feuerlöscher wurde gedacht!

Die Terrasse ist ebenso großzügig und etwa hälftig mit einer Überdachung versehen, unter der es immer einen Schattenplatz gibt. Stabile bequeme Holzsessel und -liegen sowie ein großer Tisch laden zum Verweilen ein. Der große Pool mit umlaufender Rampe (Wassertiefe 0 bis 1,70 m) bietet auch für Kinder und Behinderte reines Schwimmvergnügen! Abends kann die Terrasse mit Pool stimmungsvoll beleuchtet werden. Vom Außenbereich hat man einen Blick aufs Meer und den Ort Maleme; in Gegenrichtung auf einen Olivenhain und die Berge. Direkt neben der Terrasse befindet sich eine Parkmöglichkeit; weitere auf dem hauseigenen Wendeplatz.

Das gesamte Anwesen wurde in tadellosem Pflege- und Reinigungszustand vorgefunden. Der Pool wurde jeweils frühmorgens gereinigt (wegen unserer Hunde täglich), ohne dass man die Arbeit des "poolboys" akustisch wahrnahm. Zweimal wöchentl. wurde das Haus geputzt und Bettwäsche sowie Handtücher gewechselt. Hervorzuheben ist, dass von Eigentümer, poolboy und der schnellen, fleissigen Putzfee Daniela durch stete Absprache (in englisch) sehr darauf geachtet wurde, nur ja nicht die Gäste zu stören!

Unser Aufenthalt betrug 4 Wochen und wir werden in ein paar Jahren gerne wiederkommen!
