As a family of 3 who wanted a relaxing time in our own space at our own pace, this villa was a fantastic find.
The villa is spacious and very well decorated. There really are so many different spaces to sit and relax, eat drink - in the sun or shade, by the pool or inside under the aircon. Each space has its own furniture, so no need to worry about moving stuff around. The photos and description on the HomeAway website really do the place full justice, it's a very impressive, spacious and nicely decorated property.
All facilities were modern and in full working order - large fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, filter coffee machine, air con., and the kitchen was well equipped with all pots, pans, glasses, crockery, cutlery & utensils we would ever need.
The pool was large enough and deep enough to allow us all to get some exercise, and the pool cleaning lady was around working quietly even before we woke up!
The beds were comfortable with lovely crisp clean bed linen, while face, bath and pool towels were all provided - all to a 4 star hotel standard of cleanliness. All furniture was immaculate and comfortable. There are no separate bedrooms and the beds are located at opposite ends of the mezzanine floor. I'd suggest that this property would not suit 2 couples, but definitely suits a family.
Katarina the owner was incredibly helpful and friendly - she knew we were arriving(VERY) late at night, but still stayed on to welcome us, show us around and give us some food after our long day of (easyjet) travel.
The location of the villa was perfect for us - away from main roads, close enough to walk (and run) to the little bustling town of Kalives in one direction, a supermarket, beach hotels and restaurants, and the main highway to Souda & Chania the other. Local beaches were completely clean and accessible by foot. We had a car for the week, but really only used it to get to/from the airport, the bigger shopping trips and an amazing road trip to the Samaria Gorge.
The Cretans were friendly and helpful, and neighbours were quiet and considerate - we were probably the noisiest family around! Even the pretty kittens who live in the surrounding olive groves (we named them Pepsi and Shirley) were quiet and friendly - if a little shy.
All in all we would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to unwind and relax, and will seriously consider returning in the near future.
The location of this apartment is perfect with magnificent views of Chania. The property is clean, fully functioning and isn't missing a thing! The apartment is spacious, nicely decorated and inviting! The host is just as inviting, kind and helpful. I would definately recommend this penthouse to my friends and family and would go back to stay at this same place except I would choose to stay longer!
