We are the exclusive agents for Kyra’s House which is a lovely modern split level townhouse in a small row, nestled on a terraced hillside only 300m from the sandy beach of Almyrida. The townhouse is conveniently positioned in the middle of the row, next to the entrance archway to the pool terrace, which gives quick and easy access to the swimming pool. Both the pool terrace and the villa’s 2 balconies have fabulous uninterrupted views of the olive clad hills that surround the village and The White Mountains which are snow capped for at least 6 months of the year. Just 3-4 minutes walk from the beach and many excellent tavernas, cafes and shops, this villa is a great choice for those seeking value for money, beautiful views, comfortable accommodation, and easy access to the many local amenities. Larger groups or families who like to holiday next to each other but still value their privacy, might like to consider also booking either/both of the 2 other townhouses that we handle in this small terrace of 5 townhouses.
The design has been carefully thought out so that all of the balconies, terraces, and the pool area benefit from the marvellous mountain and olive covered hill and valley views. The living area has prime position on the top floor of Kyra’s House whilst the bedrooms are on the lower levels, which helps to keep them cooler during the long hot summer months. The townhouse has been thoughtfully and comfortably furnished with everything that you could possible need for a relaxing holiday. The 2 shower rooms and the cloak room are fully tiled. The shower rooms have blue and grey tiles, the cloak room has terracotta and white tiles, and they all have white suites. The walls throughout the townhouse are painted white, and there are white aluminium window frames, shutters and doors which enhance the house's light and airy feel which is perfect for the long hot summers here on Crete.
Kyra’s House has 2 main bedrooms which can accommodate 5 persons but also additional sleeping room for extra guests. The lower level has a large hall/extra room which has a sofa bed that folds out into a bed for 1 extra adult or 2 small children, and the living room has a couch that folds out into a bed for an extra 2 persons to sleep on. The double bedroom and the triple bedroom are both situated next to a shower room, and they are on different floors which allows for greater peace and privacy for the guests in these rooms. There is a lockable gate across the stairs to the lower level, which enables parents to have peace of mind when the younger members of the family have gone to bed. Each terrace has outdoor furniture so that you can fully unwind and take in the views, and there is a BBQ should you choose to cook on one of the balconies. In order to make your stay all the more enjoyable Kyra’s House has been finished to a high standard and includes; pine kitchen cabinets with white fronts and a built-in wine rack, peach and terracotta mottled effect kitchen worktops, a breakfast bar, a microwave oven, a washing machine, a TV, a satellite receiver box, a DVD player, a CD player/radio, ceiling fans, and air conditioning units in the bedrooms and living room. The a/c units also double up as heaters for the cooler nights early and late season. Internet access is available via 3G USB stick for a small fee. There is a parking area set just off the small road below the house that is for the sole use of the guests of the Almyrida Heights villas.
Kyra’s House has a number of outdoor balconies and terraces which are on different levels so that there are always seating areas with either sun or shade. At the front of the house is a small gravelled area that has been adorned with 3 large traditional clay pots that have been planted with palms. The south facing pool terrace is set high above the road with natural stone paving around the shared pool. There are sun-beds, umbrellas, and a panoramic view of the valley and mountains. There are olive groves on 2 sides of the Almrida Heights row of town houses, yet this beautiful countrified setting is so close to the centre of the village. This is the perfect spot from which to stroll out to dinner without having to worry about driving home.
The heart of the village of Almyrida is only 300m from Kyra's House and is built around a pretty crescent shaped sandy beach, with a small fishing harbour at the eastern end. The beach is very shallow and safe, which is good news if you have children or are not a strong swimmer. Lining the beach are 7 excellent tavernas, 9 café/bars, 2 bakeries, 2 jewellery shops, 5 mini-markets, 3 gift shops, an off-license, a butcher's shop, a wonderful organic fruit and vegetable shop with a deli counter, a pharmacy, a scuba diving office, a water sports centre which rents out kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans, and Villas Crete Holidays for tourist information, boat trips, horse riding, and guided excursions.
A few minutes by car from Kyra's House there are a huge variety of archaeological sites, traditional villages and wonderful tavernas. There is also an interesting selection of small craft centres and museums, including glass blowing in Kokkino Horio, lace makers in Gavalohori, and silk makers in Kalamitsi. For those of you looking for even more activity, the historic town of Chania is only 30 minutes away.
