She accomedated our needs and answered every question I had. We were a party of 7 with 2 boys under the age of 8. My youngest nephew is 4 and can't swim yet. So the kiddies part of the pool was perfect for him. Instantly when we arrived we were greeted by Andrie and shown how everything worked and the nearest amenities. Always there when we needed her. We were in Crete for my Uncle and Aunties 50th wedding anniversary (they have lived in Chania for 6 years) and most of my family flew out for the occasion. We had many of my Uncles, Aunties and cousins round to the villa on one of the days and they needed cabs back to their hotels and within a few minutes of texting Andrie if she could arrange cabs to pick them all up, she had responded and booked them. It was the same for one night in the harbour and our cab to the airport. She also amazingly took us to the biggest supermarket for a big shop. Chatty and friendly. Our family was so impressed with how attentive she was. We had a problem with one of the air con units in the downstairs bedrooms that was leaking. After the realisation that it wasn't normal. Andrie had her husband George come round to check it and he called a technian straight away. It was fixed within a few hours. Everything about our stay and experience was amazing. The villa is big enough that we certainly weren't on top of each other. It was beautiful. We were also given a welcome back of wine, raki, biscuits, nuts and sweets. Then on our last night Andrie came and left us some desserts. She's amazing! My nephews also enjoyed the many pool accessories as well! I've never known such quick responses from home owners before. Just incredible and I really hope we return one day to stay at this amazing villa and of course see Andrie again! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Thank you Andrie and George for an amazing stay!! X

Eleni is a wonderful hostess and went out of her way to make our visit as perfect as possible. The accommodation is extremely clean and in excellent condition . The pool area is huge and surrounded by well kept lawns. I would thoroughly recommend it. There is a little taverna you can walk to for lunch which overlooks the pebble beach. The better quality restaurants are a 5 min drive away but there are plenty to choose from. We enjoyed a lunch at Edem and dinner at Argentina.
