WOW!!

5 of 5
This villa is fantastic - possibly the best we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in many! Ellen, the owner, had arranged for the caretaker to meet us in nearby Elounda so he could guide us to the property. Our evening flight was delayed by 2 hours, but Scott managed to be charming even at 1 am. We were instantly impressed by the villa, and eventually went to bed without drawing the blinds. Upon waking the next morning, the first word that came to mind was simply "WOW"!! The view is incredible - simply beautiful. All the main rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and the architect has successfully maximised the impact of the view. We just rented the main villa - the three double bedrooms are all extremely spacious and have huge fitted wardrobes, with plenty of hangers provided.  The villa was spotlessly clean when we arrived and was cleaned three times during our two-week stay. The mid-stay cleans were very thorough, no mean feat with so much glass to polish! The pool is lovely, much longer than is usual in holiday rental and so you can swim significant distances without getting dizzy. The villa is really well equipped - a real "home from home". Everything you might need (eg, supplies for dishwasher and washing machine, herbs, spices, loo roll etc) is provided. Elounda is a lovely small town with plenty of very good restaurants, a nice beach and a selection of boat trips to enjoy. We loved this part of the island and Elounda was a good base. I would certainly recommend this villa!!

What a beautiful place Plaka is. Our home was just perfect and only feet from the sea. Each morning we swam in the clear blue sea and relaxed on our terrace taking in our amazing view. The house has everything you need for a comfortable holiday. Christine visited on several occasions to ensure we had everything we needed. We had a wonderful holiday and look forward to returning very soon.
