The photos on this site really do NOT do true justice to this gem of a property - it is so very well equipped and much larger than I expected. The location is truly amazing - sitting on the patio looking at your own private beach (think we saw two people access it during our fortnight stay!) and the snorkelling in this bay is wonderful too. We have stayed in villas for our family holidays for over 13 years, and without question this has been my absolute favourite for facilities, location, view....I could go on and on! Grant has quite literally thought of everything (even supplying an electric pump to get those inflatables ready!). All the little extras in the house, including an incredibly generous welcome basket, make you feel like you are in a hotel - then you remember the comfort and privacy of the villa. I genuinely did not want to leave and am confident that we will return at some point in the future. Grant is a great host and was amazingly prompt in every communication we had prior to travelling - thank you :-). Maria and Stavros who take care of the property are also absolute gems.
If you can tear yourself away from your private beach or the great pool...then there are many lovely places to visit within a reasonable drive - Chania is a must; Balos - talk to Maria who can help you with planning a boat trip; Elafonissi beach; the gorges and mountain roads...but as I say, you first have to tear yourself away from this stunning house. Just writing this has made me feel as sad as I did the morning we left....wonderful memories in a wonderful house. Thank you :-)
If you like self catering accommodation, space, and countryside then this is great. An insight to living there. Two small things we missed, air conditioning and a pool but soon adjusted and it didn't really matter much.
