We stayed in Villa Maria for the last 2 weeks of August 2018 and had a wonderful time. Our friends stayed in the next door villa (Eleni). I can only think of positives for the villas and the owners. Tom and Claire really have thought of everything in their design of the villas and outside spaces. The villas are identical is size/layout (or they appear to be) and are well proportioned and equipped. The swimming pool is of a good size with a really useful shallow area that is sectioned off from the main pool (but still part of it) - this was great for the younger children in our group. Everywhere is kept clean and tidy and it felt like an oasis. Below I summarise some of the key strengths:
-Tom meeting us at the airport, helping with car hire paper work and then leading us back to the villa. This was so helpful after an early (and delayed) flight when were tired and not familiar with the area
-Tom providing us with a tour of the area to assist in us getting our bearings
-Knowing Tom and Claire were on hand if we needed them. An electrical storm caused a power cut during our stay. We were out at the time. They called to tell us and also confirmed that the back up generator had kicked in.
-Beautiful swimming pool with plenty of space and sun loungers for all guests
-2 lovely BBQ/outdoor seating areas
-well equipped villa with air-con, a large fridge freezer, full size dishwasher, washing machine, cooker/oven, microwave, plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. a DVD player, digital TV, comfortable beds
-close to the local village with a decent supermarket and restuarants
-near to several lovely beaches
-close to the airport, but not too close for plane noise
-close to the stunning town of Chania
In summary a really great place to stay. We would definitely return
We had 2 weeks stay in this property. Located not too far from Chania which you can get to by bus but you really do need a car if you stay here.The property owner was very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble and we are very grateful to him for helping us make our stay all the more pleasant.
