Guestbook comments from the owner

Review # 9447147 "Pure relaxation!"

The description of the property corresponds with reality. Very suitable for a quiet-seeking couple or parents with up to two children. It is a beautiful, well maintained, cozy cottage, with everything you need. The garden is idyllic with pool and BBQ. The hosts are very friendly, helpful and straightforward. From the airport in Chania rd, 45 minutes away by car. From the house in about 10 minutes by car located in the neighboring Platanias, a Lidl, where you get everything you need. The house is very well hidden. Hot tip: the car should be a really small car. The roads in Crete in general and in particular to the house are narrow.

We can recommend the house, location and landlord couple fully. We have not relaxed so much for a very long time.

Fantastic escape in rural Crete

  • 5 out of 5
Despite the excellent directions from John and Sarah we still managed to get a bit lost as the house is tucked away up a remote track, but it's in such a beautiful setting amongst the foothills of the White Mountains that it was well worth the journey. Our hosts were friendly and helpful - our two boys loved the gift of chocolate eggs to celebrate Easter, and we loved the bottle of wine! - and the house was spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped. The pool was a bit chilly for us to use at this time of year but the garden was a great place for relaxing and playing (although the pool is not fenced off which I'd have found stressful if I had younger children). The weather was kind to us for most of the week but evenings were a bit chilly, so we were very grateful for the wood-burning stove and plentiful supply of logs. You definitely need to hire a car to stay here but the beach, Chania and supermarkets are all an easy drive away and we enjoyed exploring the area. We'd definitely recommend a break here!

A lovely, relaxing house

  • 5 out of 5
We had a really good stay here, greatly enjoying both the house and the local area. The house was very comfortable and well equipped and lovely and cool, the garden, with its extensive views, was a great place to relax, and the pool (heated, no less) was ideal for us and our two children, being so close to the house. The owners, John and Sarah, were really kind and helpful without ever being intrusive, and the lemons and grapefruit on their trees were delicious. It's a good location for exploring the west of the island, and we particularly enjoyed trips to the amazing beach at Elafonisi, Lake Kournas as well as Xania, which is about 25 mins' drive. The island's 'motorway' is handily placed just a few minutes from the door - though not all the roads on the island are as good. The quality of food and the warmth of the hospitality were outstanding almost everywhere. Even the Limnopoulis water park was one of the most civilised of its kind. We definitely hope to be back

Everything you need to relax

  • 5 out of 5
April 2013 we stayed in the beautiful cottage of John and Sarah.
The house had all the comfort we could wish for. We enjoyed the stove for the colder evenings. There is a great garden for relaxing, in the sun or in the shadow. The pool was wonderful. We made good use of it.
Overall we had a very relaxing week and wenn we come back to Crete we certainly would like to stay here again.
The location is ideal to go where ever you want (for visiting Chania, to make nice walks in the gorges, to go to the beautiful beaches etc.) and then return to your quiet place in the hills, with lovely views.
John and Sarah are great hosts. We loved the fresh oranges and eggs they brought us!

Best Holiday Ever!!

  • 5 out of 5
We are Theun, Machteld and Isis (2 years old), from Holland. We stayed with John and Sarah in July of this year.
We had the best holiday ever! It´s the combination between the nice house, lovely owners, privacy, nature around you, weather and sea.
Everything you need to relax, unwind and get in touch with nature, each other and yourself.
The pool and garden area are safe for little children. Because the garden is fenced you can easliy wath your little one.
We will be back next summer!
Thanks again for your hospitality!

Found the perfect place!

  • 5 out of 5
To find this beautiful, carefully and with lots of love renovated old stone-house was the best thing that could possibly have happened to us on our 4 week trip to Cyprus and Crete! The house is equipped with everything you need for cooking for 4 people, the "master bedroom" upstairs is spacious, from there you come into the lovely bathroom with bathtub / shower and into the small 2-bed-bedroom for the kids.
From upstairs you have access onto the big balcony which overlooks the lovely, enclosed garden with olive trees, 2 hammocks between them, the "barbecue-in-the-wall" and the heated pool. Our kids did not want to leave it unless Tigger and Ginger, John and Sarah´s cats, came over to visit!
Downstairs is a large room with kitchen, dinning table, sofas, small TV and CD-Radio. The ambiente is absolutely lovely, old stone walls, wodden enterieur.
Most windows and doors are equipped with moskito nets or moskito-sliding doors or -roller blinds (and it´s recommandable to keep them closed!)
When I´ve finally convinced my family to actually leave the house for half a day to explore the area, there was so much to see and do close by. The Akrotiri Peninsula with the monasteries and lovely beaches; the "Lefka Ori", the white mountains (spectacular views and the entry to the Samaria Gorge, which we´ll do next time) the south coast (we´ve only visited Sougia, which should not be missed, so beautiful!! and there´s so much more there!!) We´ll do the botanic gardens of Crete when our kids are a bit older.
John´s directions to find the house where excellent, including directions to our favorite supermarket on the way to stock up on our arrival. John and Sarah, who renovated the house to let it, are lovely and willing to help with anything. They live next door with their two kids and cats and Marmite, the friendly dog, and their fish and hens... so you might get fresh eggs to welcome you! And oranges and grapefruit!
So we can recommend most warmly to book your holiday in this wonderful place, relax by the pool, especially at night to try and count the countless stars, listen to the quiet, the occasional bark of a village dog or a badly timed cock. Swing softly in the hammock in the shade of the olive trees or sun-bake in one of the comfy sunbeds around the pool, there is sunshine or shade just as you like all day!

We will certainly come back!

The House is only 10 minutes from the wildlife lake at Agia and just 15 minutes from Platanias and Gerani. The fantastic water park at Limnoupoli is also just 15 minutes. There is a beautiful (and not too busy) sandy beach and sheltered bay at Agia Apostoli only 15 minutes by car. Directions in the house!

The popular Hania town is 25-30 minutes. The Samaria Gorge is easily accessed across the White Mountains and the smaller and quieter Agia Irini Gorge is less than an hours drive.

Elafonissi, the spectacular island of pink sand is approx 1hour and the beaches of Falassarna 45 minutes.
