We found ourselves able to leave the cold and damp behind and relax after our hectic careers. We found this piece of land and built our villa to our own design.

John Duncan purchased this villa in 2003

Villa Jolyn offers unparalleled quality accommodation and stunning views all year round. We live on site so are able to offer face to face advice and help all day every day to make your holiday everything you could want - and more!

The villa offers stunning views, mature gardens, a fully equipped kitchen, and luxurious rooms. Come and stay at any time of the year, we think that early in the season or even before offers the traveller much greener scenery, fabulous wild flowers and for those who prefer, cooler temperatures than mid summer although still shorts weather!

Brilliant and more

We were so looking forward to staying at Villa Jolyn and it met all our expectations and then some. First impression as Lynn showed us round was how clean and homely the villa was ,all needs catered for and what a view. On the days when the temperature hit the 40s it was a haven to relax and read in the shade on the terrace and in the immaculate garden. Lynn and John were very friendly and flexible in making sure our stay was comfortable. Everything that you could want was provided and all of it to the highest possible standard. We have had a brilliant time. Thanks so much to John and Lynn
Owner's Response: Thank you very much Iain and Rachel. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Jolyn and hope both to see you again and hopefully some of your friends as nothing beats a personal recommendation! Loved having you here.
All the best,
John and Lynn

Truly amazing

  • Review Submitted: 05-Oct-2012

My husband and I stayed at Villa Jolyn from 18th September to 2nd October. In the 20+ years that we have been visiting Greece, this is most definitely the best holiday rental we have stayed in. The views from the villa are absolutely stunning. Not only is the villa itself fitted out to the highest possible standard, but it is also so comfortable that it doesn't feel like a holiday rental but actually a home - Lynn, I especially loved the big fluffy towels in the bathroom. But more importantly, it is absolutely spotless.

Lynn, your garden is truly amazing and I have lots of close-up pix of the various cacti (small and large). As one of the early reviewers said, it was an effort to make ourselves move and go out and about in and around Elounda - we were just so comfortable at the villa. Lots of lovely little places on the veranda to sit and read or sunbathe. Truly perfect. We loved it so much. Many thanks to you both for providing us with such comfort.
Owner's Response: Steve and Philomena, thank you for your comments - we are glad that we are getting it right! If the rest of the world is looking for the ideal place to get away from it all, you must try Villa Jolyn.
You owe it to yourselves! Once you have stayed here you will understand the Scottish saying, "Go slowly, come back quickly!"
We hope to see you all soon, but book early and be sure of a holiday to remember.

The Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 23-Sep-2012
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2012
My wife and I stayed at Villa Jolyn from the 5th to the 16th of September and had a wonderfully laid back and relaxed holiday. We have stayed in and around Elounda on a number of occasions and quite simply the standard of the accommodation here is up with the very best.

The villa is spacious, spotlessly clean, immaculately furnished and with every possible home comfort you could need. The garden is full of colourful and exotic plants and on top of all that the views from the villa and the balcony are panoramic and exceptionally beautiful.

Having been to the area before we did not need to dash off out sightseeing every day so it fitted the bill perfectly and we made full use of it by spending a large part of the holiday simply loafing about on the balcony or in the garden reading, sunbathing, or simply looking at the view.

John and Lynn are the perfect hosts, making us feel very welcome and supplying lots of useful local information and great recommendations for eating out; Platonas taverna in Fourni being a particular highlight and a real Cretan experience.
Their pet cats were friendly, entertaining, but well behaved and never a nuisance and dear old Gus in particular would have been kidnapped if we could have got him through security.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we recommend it very highly and we will be back!
Owner's Response: Thank you Richard for your review. We always aim to provide the best we can and it looks like our efforts are paying off! If you want a holiday you will always remember, we will be pleased to welcome you into our home.
See you soon!
