The bedrooms have air-con and fans. We never used the air-con as having the shutters open and using the fans was more than adequate. The outdoor space is excellent with tables and chairs for everyone. Sun loungers are provided round the pool. We were in the lovely pool everyday. We always have a car and there is private parking. The owners are excellent with communication if you have any questions, I emailed and always had a response the same day. Overall we had an excellent time and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

                                                                                              Sense of Dream villa is an amazing property. The photos exceeded every expectation we had of the house. It was incredibly spacious with a panoramic view of the coast. The villa is located no more than 10 mins by foot from the local village which has all you need - supermarket, bar, takeaway etc. It is also serviced by a bus directly to Chania. Tavronitis is an ideal location for those who do not wish to be in a built-up tourist area but still wish to live nearby areas like this. It is also ideal for visiting some of Crete's nicest beaches as it is very close to the national road and situated down the right side of the island. I would recommend renting a car as you will be able to see the best locations Crete has to offer, however it is not essential as the village is serviced by bus, cheap enough taxis and you can pick up everything you may need in the local shops. The villa was very clean upon arrival. The pool was crystal clear as well. Towels and linen were provided. I can not fault the villa in any way nor could I fault our host - Manolis who dropped over fresh sheets and fresh fruit one day. The villa is idea for a group or friends (our group) or even families as there is plenty of room to house everyone, as well as very good air conditioning in all the main rooms. We were all incredibly happy with our stay and we look forward to returning again in the future.

It is located privately amongst olive trees out of sight of the road but with superb views over the mountains and sea and still it is within easy walking distance of the village and shops and tavernas, also the bus stop to Chania and Kissamos. The owner is welcoming and gracious and has taken great care to furnish and equip this house to the highest standards. The garden and pool area is delightful; the pool is cleaned daily and the villa was also cleaned and linen changed half way through our stay of 8 nights. Highly recommended.
