This conversion had been carried out very tastefully and the photos did not convey just how spacious and charming it is. We particularly enjoyed the courtyard garden area and the small swimming pool. Maroulas is an interesting historic village and there were several good tavernas within a short drive of the villa. This may sound a bit picky but we would have liked the kitchen to have more pots and pans as we like to cook on occasion as well as visiting the local restaurants. Other than this minor issue we had a fantastic holiday and we intend to return at some point.

Villa is beautiful clean and very peaceful. We had a wonderful relaxing time there and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

We booked the villa through Kostas who was always on hand throughout the process if we had any questions. Our transfers and car rental were dealt with by Best Car Rentals and they were very friendly and efficient and on time. We were greeted at the villa by the owner Mr George and his two daughters who showed us around the villa and the studio apartment in the garden. They provided us with a meal from their restaurant which was very kind of them and was gratefully received after a full day of travelling. The kitchens were stocked with food and drink which again was very thoughtful. The main villa has 3 bedrooms and the studio apartment has one bedroom which makes it ideal for two families to stay together. The villa and the apartment both have kitchens and ample seating. We tended to have our breakfasts at the main villa on the balcony looking out to sea and our other meals at the studio apartment which has a barbeque and oven attached to the outside seating area. Both villas were very clean and well equipped. They were cleaned every three days by Mr George and his daughters and the bed linen and towels were changed as well. The pool was cleaned every day by Mr George and occasionally he would leave us some fresh bread and cakes. There was seating and a number of umbrellas by the pool and some very comfortable sun loungers. The gardens were well maintained by Mr George and you can see that he and his daughters are very proud of the properties. There are two play areas for small children and we made good use of the treadmill, exercise bike and table tennis table located in the basement. The local beach was within walking distance together with some good tavernas. Kostas recommend Baja Beach which is a short drive away and we spent many memorable days there. All in all we spent a relaxing two weeks at the villa we would like to thank the people of Crete for making this holiday so special.
