We were met on arrival and shown around before opening a complimentry bottle of wine - perfect after a day's travelling! The swimming pool was perfect with a good number of shaded areas to escape the sun if it got to hot. The kitchen/living area was a good size and made for a comfortable stay. The two bathrooms were again a good size. There was a nice dining area outside close the purpose built BBQ area as well as a good sized roof terrace to sit and enjoy a drink watching the sunset over the sea and the amazing scenery. The villa owner also sent a very helpful email with useful information about local attractions and amenities. Likewise, we got a good deal on a hire car to explore the island. Overall we were very pleased with the villa and would definately stay again. James London

In reality, the house looks just as good as on the pictures shown here. It has nice interior and exterior as well as a lot of space. The view over the ocean at breakfast is astonishing. The landlords are really friendly and helpful, offering fresh cake whenever they visit the house. Everything looked clean and organized, including the really nice swimming pool. The landlords share a lot of ideas for activities around the island. Only one point of "criticism". It could happen that there's a power outage/ the water is not working anymore. This is not the fault of the landlords (we already knew this happens on Crete from time to time) and they are also really helpful on the phone in case this happens. The point I want to make is, that maybe that could be explained when arriving at the house for the first time. Just to make sure that the renters know that this might happen and how to solve it. Anyway, 5 Stars for the house and an incredible 2 weeks of vacation.

It was well furnished and clean, the pool an absolute pleasure in the height of summer and the outlook spectacular. It is necessary to have the use of a car and plan days out to discover the best of the rugged south of the island.
