Great Villa!

  • 5 of 5

A great villa with a great pool and plenty of space to enjoy!

Has everything you'd want and need, large pool, kids pool, Jacuzzi, gym, football pitch, mini kids playground, basketball court and table tennis.

The owners, Stelios & Maria, were close by should you need and were very welcoming and full of good knowledge and advice on the surrounding area.

Beautiful villa with a great pool / facilities

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a week stay, 3 families of 2 adults and 2 children, aged from 9 years to 10 months. The main part of the villa and the first floor have recently been refurbished to a great standard, we were very impressed. The only thing that let the villa down was the basement level, which hadn't been touched. It was very dated and dark, which was ok for sleeping but there was no relaxation/dining area, unlike the other two floors. It wasn't a big issue as we all ate together but i think that it's something that needs to be addressed and probably will be. Its also away from the main living quarters, so when the adults wanted to relax in the evening, two children had to sleep in a cot / on the sofa in the main part and had to be moved each night, which was not ideal. The owner Stelios and Maria, were great hosts, bringing us home made food which was amazing. They cooked us a meal one evening, the best mousakka I have ever eaten. Lots left over, enough for two days of food. I also would not hesitate booking with Kostas / Etouri travel. Very quick at responding to emails and even arranged for us to use the sun lounges at a beach club, with complimentary wine and fresh fruit. I would definitely recommend them and this villa.

Amazing family Villa

  • 4 of 5

The Villa Mary won't disappoint! It has just been modernized almost throughout to a very high standard. The basement rooms had not been done when we stayed, but everywhere else had it was clean, modern and it was evident that a lot of care had been taken. The photos do not do it justice.

As we were traveling with small children my only slight concern was the children's play area, although you could see the swing, slide etc was not old they had started to deteriorate in the heat of Crete, and especially at the top of the slide, the little ones had to go down it on a towel other wise it could have nipped their legs.

We had a Yoga lesson and a Tai massage by the lovely Mireille, I would highly recommend her.

The owners were welcoming, and the few things we needed were addressed quickly. We would go back and we recommend the villa. it was our first holiday to Crete and we absolutely loved it. Rethymno is a short drive away, and it was about an hours drive from the airport.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Visited the villa with my girlfriend and five other couples. Great holiday. Loved the villa, perfect for big groups, plenty of space for everyone inside and outside, and the basketball court, football pitch and pool are all pretty unique.

The owner Mr. Stelios is a great guy and very helpful. For €10/person he whips up a fantastic dinner - well worth the money.

Would highly recommend Villa Mary!

A Fabulous Week

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mary lived up to expectations - especially the pool and 5 a side pitch, which kept the children entertained for hours. Stelios and Maria made us feel very welcome and their food was excellent.....so was their home made wine and raki!

Well placed for exploring the island (Chania and Heraklion about an hour away) but equally good for staying in and chilling.

Arkadi Monastry is just 15 mins away and definitely worth a visit.

Overall excellent.

Wonderful place for a large family holidays

  • 5 of 5

We have chosen this villa as a place for the extended family get together on the beautiful Crete island. The villa is quite nice, spacious and offers all facilities one would need to enjoy holidays, including a very nice and large swimming pool, sports facilities, barbecue place, entertainment, etc. Besides, the owners, Stelios and Maria, would fix for your company an excellent dinner at their little tavern in the adjacent garden per order, in addition to being very nice and pleasant people in general. The villa is cleaned every third day or so with turning down beds' linen and towels so an adequate hygiene is ensured. The villa is located in a quiet village some 3 km from nearest beaches so renting cars is recommended although there is a public buss stop right next to the villa. The car parking area of the villa is large enough for 3 mid-sized or 4 small cars, which is quite convenient for a large group of people having different ideas about visiting the places around the island. In general, villa is located close to Rethymno so many places of interest are not too far away. We would certainly recommend this villa to group holiday makers.
