We (my 84 year old mother, my 20 year old daughter, my wife and myself) were absolutely delighted with our stay at the lodge, which was even nicer than we had expected.
Setting up our rental had been easy—Arianne answered all email questions promptly, and provided excellent directions to the house. As she says on the website, you do need a car, since the house is in the hills above Kissamos.
The place is absolutely gorgeous, flowers everywhere, a well-kept pool, a big roof terrace to view both sunrise and sunset. The house is furnished comfortably, and was spotless. We ended up using the kitchen a lot, and found it well-stocked with tools, plates and pots.
Arianne provided us with ample information about local hiking and walking destinations, restaurants and tips for shopping.
Overall it's a great place for independent travelers, and we're planning to tell all our friends about it!
