Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Yioula and Agis, from the day I emailed you until the day we left Crete, our stay at the Melody has been so wonderful! We have traveled to many places in the world and found your hospitality to set this vacation far apart from others. Your houses are beautiful and every detail is no less than I expected. Thank you so much for inviting us the first day to spend with your family - it was our favorite part. I have loved the friendliness of the Cretan people and the wonderful food on this trip. I hope you can contact us in the future if you want to experience Switzerland. We have the warmest and greatest memories of you and villa Melody.

P.S. Loved your baked goodies. Hi to Aris!!!!

BEAUTIFUL VILLA, LOVELY WELCOME

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you to Yioula, Agis, Aris, Sophia and not forgetting Chester, for looking after us so well. As a family of four with two teenagers we stayed at Villa Melody for a week in early April. We had a lovely warm welcome and the villa was just perfect. The pride and attention to detail with which it was built and presented showed through. It was spacious, very well equipped and with some top quality hotel finishing touches, not to mention the basket of home made produce, wine and something a touch stronger!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! We arrived at this beautiful, authentic greek house, where we felt very welcome by the sweet and helpful owners. The house is very close to shops, restaurants and the beach, but because it is located a couple of houses from the main street, it is very quiet and peaceful. I was there with my family, which the house is perfect for. Our four-year old daughter and one-year old son enjoyed the pool and the room down-stairs, which had a lot of toys for both of them. We adults very much enjoyed the jacuzzi, relaxing on the terraces and the fact that there was wireless internet access...perfect for planning trips.

I would really recommend this house to anyone who wants a vacation where they can stay in a quiet, charming place, where it is possible to walk to restaurants, shopping, beautiful sunsets at the beach, or take a drive up to the breathtaking mountains or into the city of Chania.

I would definitely love to go back.

THE PERFECT HOLIDAY DESTINATION

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first visit to Crete and we had a relaxing and wonderful stay in villa Rhapsody! It was clean, well equipped and even better then described on the website. Fantastic villa - superb location within walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants and the beach. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is planning to travel to Crete. Yioula and her family were perfect hosts – thank you for everything!

Go for a swim in the pool to wake you up in the morning before you make espresso for the girls and wake them up for yet another great day!!!! It doestn get better than this!!!

We will be back next year!!!

Best regards from Lisa, Sissel, Grethe and Ann-Torill

VILLA MELODY - A GREAT FIND

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I rented the villa Melody in May 2011 and can thoroughly recommend it. Everything is finished to a really high standard and with a lot of thought. Despite us having rain on a few days we were more than happy to chill out on the veranda which has comfy sofas. The pool is a good size and the gardens are well-kept. Yioula and her family made us feel very welcome and really want their guests to have a good time. The resort itself is very built-up and we chose it as we have a baby daughter and wanted to be close to amenities. The villa is luxurious and tucked away so it was a haven for us with the privacy we wanted despite being in a very touristic town.

STUNNING VILLA, GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 out of 5
Stunning villa, great location. Quiet and extremely comfortable. We had a fantastic time.
The villa was spacious and super clean as was the pool and the grounds. It was equiped with everything that we needed and we had a really fabulous holiday. I wouldn't and won't hesitate to recommend this villa as a great place to stay in Crete. Yioula, her family and all the staff were really super nice and made us feel so welcome.
Thank you Yioula and team for making our holiday so pleasant. We will hopefully return to you again soon.
