Very nice holiday home with a large and clean pool

5 of 5
Our stay in this holiday villa was really great and we enjoyed it very much. The house is located close to nice restaurants and different shops in Makrigialos. We also loved to have our breakfast at the house terrace each morning and our kids enjoyed the nice and clean pool. Rosemary provided us with all needed and helpful information about the house and the infrastructure. It was very convenient to have a private parking lot nearby. Everything went very well and we were completely satisfied.

Very Nice House

5 of 5
Stunning view over the ocean, very quiet location. The house is accessible via a private drive way off the main road. Apart from the microwave, everything you could need (including a freezer) was available. Internet access could be better. We had to go outside to have a good internet connection. We arrived very late/early (2am) and received the keys without a problem. People were very friendly and got us breakfast for the first morning. Irina responds quickly to email requests.

Stunning views, private villas and utterly relaxin

5 of 5
What an amazing week we have just had at Tholos Bay Villas. Before we even got there we felt so looked after by the owners; they gave us so much information on the villas and surrounding area and made sure we had everything we needed, including buying us a blender so we could puree baby food!! When we arrived (at midnight!!) we were met by Bob and Jill, who look after the villas. They gave us an excellent tour of the villas and made us feel right at home. We settled in well, however the next morning we had a power cut that lasted the morning. Bob arrived within an hour and lent us a gas stove to use - so efficient! They were so helpful. We visited with friends who stayed in the other villa which was perfect. We both have young children so having our own space was ideal. They were close enough for us to link up a baby monitor between the two so we could eat together in the evenings. The villas were very well equipped for self catering including a brilliant american fridge freezer which had filtered ice cold water and ice. The BBQ was also excellent and we had many lovely meals outside. Plenty of areas for sitting in the sun and shade plus the sun loungers were very comfy! Not much time to relax due to our 3 year old and 6 month old keeping us on our toes but we loved playing in the pool (which was little chilly but we got used to it). There was also a lot of pool toys which was great for the kids and board games for us adults to enjoy in the evenings. The weather for early October was perfect - 25-30 degress - and a very welcome breeze made being outside in the sun very comfortable. The hot tub at the smaller villa was such a treat and easy to alter the temperature so the children could go in. We enjoyed exploring the local villages and especially liked going to a little fishing village called Mochlos. Excellent taverna's and stunning stoney beach (small) with crystal clear waters. Our three year old loved swimming in the sea and it was so warm. We also ate at the taverna at Tholos beach which was fun - more of a van/shack than a taverna but still had some yummy food, cold beers and raki! There are good supermarkets in Agios Nikolaos and Lerapetra but the local one in Kavousi was a little 'random' so I wouldn't rely on it for your weekly shop. All in all an extremely relaxing and fun week and we are already thinking of planning a trip back! We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone wanting a relaxing, private holiday.
