The owner george was very helpful and very informative about the villa and surrounding areas.the villa itself was fully equipped with everything you could need for a comfartable stay. The highlight of this villa was most definitely the pool.my kids absolutely loved it .we will definitely be back hopefully next year and i would definitely highly reccomend this villa its in a wonderful place in beautiful chania .

The house itself is traditional style, but has a modern kitchen and modern bathrooms (the best of both worlds). The rooftop deck and pool areas are great places to take in the sun or just relax. It's a little bit hard to find, but once you find your way there, it's easy to go back and forth to Meleme town and the beach. The trip to Chania is a bit more of an adventure, but that's more to do with driving in Chania town than the location of the house itself. I can't say enough nice things about our hosts. They took great care to make sure we knew where everything was and how it worked, gave us great recommendations and just generally made us feel at home. They also helped us to arrange to have cooks come in and make us a traditional Cretan dinner, served on the rooftop deck, which was the highlight of everyone's visit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property, and really can't wait to go back myself.

Exactly as described and had everything that we needed. the location was perfect 5 minute drive from the beach, supermarkets, restaurants bars and more. The owners were extremely helpful and were only a call a way if anything was needed. Even called a taxi for us so we could have a driving free night out! Couldn't have been a better week for two.
