WONDERFUL HOME BASE

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I found the house to be spacious and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped. Beautiful view of the mountains, and you can see the sea from the upper balcony. I loved sitting on the front porch in the mornings with my coffee, listening to the distant roosters, birds, geese, etc. as the sun came up. It's very quiet here, but it's only about 15 minutes from the bustling town of Rethymno.

Do use the detailed directions they provide to find the house--it's off the beaten track. The road directly to the house is very narrow and the turn is tight, but no problem for a small car if you're careful. If you navigate using Google Maps, know that Google prefers the spelling "Chamalevri" for the village, rather than "Hamalevri" which you will see elsewhere. I wouldn't recommend staying here without a car.

Rob and Wendy were friendly and helpful hosts. There was a small food starter pack provided for us, which was a real plus. We were unable to get the jacuzzi to heat up. I'm sure Rob and Wendy would have been able to sort it out, but we decided just not to use it. We found the beds to be a little to firm for our comfort, and when I let Malcolm know, he said he would be getting memory foam mattress toppers, so you can sleep in comfort.

We had to pay for electricity, but it only came to £4 for the week for the two of us. The price for the villa was an amazing value. Traveling in the off season has its perks. November in Crete was wonderful. The temperature was perfect, around 23° during the day, not too hot, not at all cold. Mostly blue skies and the odd thunderstorm, a day of on-and-off rain. Very few tourists are around--you practically have the island to yourself. A few attractions and tourist-oriented shops and restaurants are closed, but there are definitely enough to keep you busy and your souvenir shopping bag full. Many shops and petrol stations are now open on Sundays.

There is a box in the house full of suggestions of places to go and things to do that people have contributed to, which we found useful.

Book this villa with confidence!

IDYLLIC HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for 6 weeks near the end of the season.
Great peaceful location,very well appointed and equipped.
We cooked in most days and had everything we needed plus.... BBQ is great.
Comfy beds with floor fans and AC for the warmer nights were welcome.
Great sound systems and TV/DVD with comfy sofas in the lounge make this a truly home from home.
We sat out on the terrace most nights to 'wine down' and watch the sunset-spectacular!
Caretakers , Rob and Wendy are really nice friendly helpful people next door.
Jacuzzi is abfab! Good quality outdoor furniture.
We have stayed in many rented holiday homes,but this beats them all- great value and quality.
Hats off to Malcolm and Elsie!

RECOMMENDED VILLA CLOSE TO RETHYMNON

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Masie is located in a very peaceful and rural location yet only 5 mins drive away from Safakaki and maybe 20 mins to the centre of Retymnon.

The villa is well furnished having all the necessary creature comforts associated to modern living, including "The Hot Tub", perhaps the only item missing would be internet / Wi-Fi access.

The owner was very professional, he came across very well when we spoke on the telephone and his correspondence via e-mail was quick and accurate. The property managers who live next door come from the same mould as the owner and were always on hand but never intrusive.

The description of the property was accurate as were the directions from the airport which with the aid of the photographs made the journey trouble free.

The property represented excellent value for money and would be recommended to both family & friends. A relaxing sun drenched week was had by all.

SUMMER 2012 IN HAMALEVRI, CRETE

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed staying in Crete. Villa was exactly the same as on the photos and reached our expectations. I would like to recommend to rent a car if you want to visit as much as possible. We traveled across the Rethymno region and saw many beatiful beaches and cities. I recommend to rent this villa you will not regret.

EXCELLENT VILLA IN CENTRAL LOCATION ON CRETE.

Very modern, solidly built and well equipped villa. Quiet location, yet well connected to infrastructure. Very good value for money. Suitable for 2-4 persons. Car recommended.

GREAT HOUSE,GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Well,where to start,firstly let me say that if you are looking for a place in the middle of all the action to party the night away,read no further,this is not the place for you.It is in a secluded area overlooking the valley,yet close enough to stores,bars,tavernas,beaches and the other essentials of modern living.
The house is well-stocked with everything needed to create a home from home with better weather of course,in fact,I cannot think of anything that was missing except perhaps internet/wifi access would have been nice.Having several terraces outside on which to relax meant that we could follow the sun or shade around to suit our mood,and how nice to be able to cook for ourselves and eat outdoors,there is a BBQ area but it was unused by us as it is not our thing.
The property managers live next door and were helpful,friendly and courteous without being intrusive.
The directions to the property,which is somewhat off the beaten track were spot-on,including photographs to ensure that we were on the right road,the result of which was we never went wrong once.
Considering the size of the house ( large ) and the furnishings and appliances,we would have expected to pay far more,so,even the rental price was good.
All in all,we have had a wonderful vacation,relaxing in the Spring sunshine ( and hot tub ) and would recommend this property to anyone wishing to enjoy the same.

Car: recommended

The villa is situated on the side of a valley at Hamalevri, a peaceful Cretan village just 1.8Km inland from the Cretan North coast at Stavromenos and its shops, tavernas, and beaches. We recommend hiring a car because the walk back to the villa from Stavromenos, although only 1.8 Km is uphill. If you don't want to hire a car, taxis are usually available.

Rethymno is just a 10 minute drive West along the new National road. Heraklion airport is 70 kms East (a 50 minutes drive) along the new scenic coast road. Chania airport is 60 Kms West along the scenic coast road. Nearby along the coast are the resorts of Scaleta and Panormo to the East, and Adelianos campos and Platanias to the West, all with numerous sandy beaches, shady tavernas (some by the sea) for alfresco dining, supermarkets and shops. Hamalevri has its own Kafenion and within walking distance at the adjacent village of Asteri only 250 m - 500 m away, there are two mini shops, another Kafenion, and a taverna which does delicious spare-ribs and spit roasted lamb. The picturesque harbour at Panormo is only a 10 minute drive East.
