SUPERB!

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is beautiful and has the most fantastic infinity pool overlooking the sea and Spinalonga island. The village of Plaka is a couple of minutes walk and has a good range of restaurants. Watersports one minute from the villa on the pebble beach. It's only ten minutes drive to Elounda where there are good butchers, greengrocers and supermarkets.
The villa is beautifuuly kept and is comfortable with everything we needed. It is maintained and managed by a British lady called Christine who is lovely. She was helpful both before we went and whilst we were there. The villa was spotlessly clean.
The car hire we used was Byron Travel, recommended by Christine, and they were good too (good service and no hidden extras!)
I would recommend this villa to a family with older children (ours are 18, 21 and 22) Actually, it was great not to rent something geared up for tinies!
For me, the best was the pool. Just enjoying that view all day was so relaxing.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This is the fourth time we've come to the villa, and we plan to keep coming. It has the best location, beautiful view, house is in perfect condition with all the mod cons.
The house manager gives great service, and always take very good care of our family. Whatever we needed was immediately taken care of, and very pleasantly.
We just got back, and can't wait for the next time!!! We're so lucky to have found this villa!

POOR SERVICE. NON EXISTENT,

  • 1 out of 5
the villa is very basic despite having a great view. when we arrived there was no pillows or duvets and we had to wait 2 nights before they were delivered. the manager lives 20 km away, and you need to rely on the service of the pool man who doesnt speak english.
There is no point staying in sometimes, as the TV has no english speaking channels apart from BBC world and there is no air condition in the sitting room

we even had workmen digging the garden right outside the kitchen window for 3 days. last year the water was cutting out constantly and the fridge broke down and had to wait for 2 days before it being fixed. the owner does not get involved with any issues related to your stay and insists on vacating in the morning even if your flight is 12 hours later. so you will need to walk around with your suitcases in 35 degree heat or choose to board the plan in your swimwear covered in sand and salt as a courtesy shower room can not be provided.

Owner's Response: In all understanding for a guest who has rented the villa for 4 weeks in August 2010, 4 weeks in August 2011, 4 weeks in August 2012 and 3 weeks in August 2013 without any prior complaints and who is obviously in rage now because we could not serve his wish for a late checkout requested on the last day day prior to his departure due to incoming guests the same day we have to restore reality:
According to housekeeping all beds had the usual comfortable quadrangular pillows. The guest requested smaller pillows which were exchanged the next morning after the request.
The manager, a British lady, lives in Elounda which is 4,6 km by road from the villa. All guests have her cell phone number and she is always available and frequently around as she is responsible responsible for 4 of our properties in Plaka.
The Satellite TV has the Satellites Astra 2 and Hotbird. Altogether more than 50 channels in English.
A brand new air-condition was installed also in the living room after the customer mentioned this request to the manager recently.
As a larger part of the lawn had dried off, so housekeeping asked the guest if he would mind that they would reseed the lawn because the guest stayed this year 3 weeks. Guest found this a good idea and enforced the re-seeding which was done in the afternoon in the absence of the guests.
The guest has rented the villa several times before. He admits re-renting even in his comments. The villa has a backup water system of 5000 liters. The only time when water can cut out is a power cut which will affect the deposit pumps. In summer 2011 there were several power cuts which was much better in the following years.
I summer 2012 the guest had a technical defect of the fridge which was fixed within 24 hours and the guest was provided with a reserve fridge from the owners apartment in the villa during fixing time.
The guest was aware of the published checkout time of 10 AM for several years. One day before checkout he requested a late checkout as his flight left in the evening. Unfortunately other guests came in on his checkout day at 14.00 so a late checkout was not possible. The custumoer was offered a luggage deposit and the use of the shower in the beach cottage area. But the guest decided to rent a day room in a luxury hotel in Elounda which he did after checking out from the villa at 11.00.

PERFECT VILLA AND LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
This villa has everything to make a perfect holiday, stunning view, excellent location, comfy beds and a stylish interior. The photos really do not do it justice and there have been some subtle additions, particularly around the pool area that make it much more attractive. It was immaculately clean and very well equipped. It was particularly well provided for in terms of towels and the basics. The housekeeper, was a delight, putting us at ease and a font of all local knowledge. Although the villa is a beautiful place to be, its other advantage is that it is only a couple of minutes stroll to the beach and the small village of Plaka, which has some lovely shops and excellent restaurants – we would particularly recommend Giorgios, the middle one in the row down by the harbour, where Yanis, the third generation owner (his father does the fishing) will always look after you well.
There really was nothing we could fault and are definitely hoping to return next year.

Car: not necessary

Located directly above and on a beach on one of the most famously beautiful parts of Crete’s coast - the Gulf of Mirabello - the light and shades of blue changing with the hours of the day. It would be hard to be closer to the sea or in a more relaxing spot. The beach itself is a long and pretty curve of pebbles, with natural shade from tamarind trees. Just across the water lies the deserted island of Spinalonga with its poignant history and atmospheric ruins and from Plaka’s small harbour it is possible to join a boat to explore the island or hire one for pottering up and down the coast. Plaka also has shops and good tavernas serving fish and other Greek specialities. The walking distance between the properties and the village is less than 5 minutes along the road behind the beach. The village and complete area is a very safe place, far away from any large city. The less than 200 inhabitants that almost all live of fishing or tourism. A watersport is located within the beach area.

Other Activities: archeologic sites, shopping, sightseeing, touring, motobike-rental

Ski: Water Ski is possible in the Water Sports facility (pedalos, canoeing, jet-ski rental etc.) on the very close house beach. (see pictures)
