The owner Maria was just lovely and helped us a lot with getting around information.

The beach is just at the end of the road. So close and flat to walk to. Our favourite bar was mythos the staff were so friendly and the food was wonderful

The property is even more beautiful than the pictures portray and is in pristine condition. The location is second to none, it doesn't matter if you are looking for beaches, great food, privacy or occasion to enjoy a night out on the town, this property offers it all.

There were 4 adults staying together and each of us had a spectacular time in Maleme and the house offered more than enough space with all the modern conveniences. We also cannot say enough about our fabulous host, Maria!! She was so pleasant, informative, helpful and just a joy to deal with, we almost felt like we were saying goodbye to a family member by the end of our stay. If you book this property, you will have NO regrets.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We came back just a few days ago from Maleme. We spent two weeks and a half in Villa Helios and truly wish we could have stayed a lot longer.

Not only was the house very comfortable and perfectly clean, the swimming pool impressive, the surroundings appealing, the village itself with its various supermarkets, restaurants and art workshops perfect for a vacation of that length, but the warm welcome and attendance of our hosts when we needed advice or suggestions as to the best places to visit in the area were more than what we expected.

Maria and Michael are the most charming hosts we ever met. Our vacation would have never been so successful without them. We truly hope to be able to go back to Maleme to spend time in their lovely Villa Helios again, and see them both again.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at the Viila Helios in August 2015 , the service from Michael and Mary is first class from the initial booking to any future correspondence through email.

On arrival at this beautiful villa we where greeted by Mary who showed us around and made sure we knew where everything was located and answered our many questions on Crete and the one question that she was unsure of she phoned somebody and immediately found out , service with a smile and a welcome pack including beer for the adults.

The villa itself is spacious with all the facilities you could require whilst on holiday , well stocked kitchen , large fridge freezer and washing machine etc but the outside space was our favourite for relaxing and dining.

The pool,and the grounds are immaculately kept and has a mixture of sunny areas and shade throughout the day depending on how you are coping with the heat and sunshine and a large gas bbq was on hand to cook outside.

The villa is throughly cleaned twice a week and the pool and garden are tended more frequently.

Male me is a smaller resort with about 10 restaurants/ bars one the village and a far larger choice in Platanias and Chania .

A large INKA supermarket is a minutes walk away and slightly further to the butchers and pharmacy.

We did not drive in Crete but public transport and taxis made exploring possible and as a family we really enjoyed our stay and will have another holiday here one day.

Very nice, good sized villa!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice villa, good size, very helpful owners.

Very quiet, but close to the sea, and close to many tavernas and restaurants, our favourite restaurant was "Wave"...

The pool was clean and inviting, as was the house with regular cleaning, change of towels and pool maintainence.

altough we where "only" two people, there was plenty of room for more...

We left Maleme yesterday wishing to stay another week at this lovely villa. The previous reviews really do say it all. From the lovely welcome pack to the phone call on departure day, Mary makes sure your stay is top notch. The villa is situated in a lovely quiet village where in an afternoon round the pool all you hear is birdsong. Yet the bus stop to Platanias (more restaurants than you could visit in a lifetime) and Chania is literally five minutes walk away. The old town and harbour in Chania are stunning. The bus costs just 2 euros! Our party consisted of six adults and the facilities of the villa couldn't be better - home from home. Two supermarkets within easy walking distance. In fact I walked to the German war cemetery too but this wouldn't be near enough for everyone especially as it was a blisteringly hot day when I went. You definitely do not need to hire a car to enjoy the towns I mention above. My daughter's boyfriend did hire one however and we went to the beach at Falassarna where the views are stunning and the waves so strong it is the best free entertainment you could have. We had a barbecue one night by the pool which was lovely. The beach is within 200 meters along with an excellent café bar called Menta another 200m. Best holiday for years
