Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Rethymno - Villa Daphne

4 bedroom luxury villa with indoor and outdoor pool close to the beach!

Villa Daphne is approved by Greek Tourism Organization with license number: 1041K10002989201.

If you believe that accommodation is a major factor in aiding a unique holiday experience then Villa Daphne is exactly what you are looking for!

Villa Daphne was built in 2006 and renovated mostly in the outdoors in 2014 and indoors in 2015!

It can accommodate 8 people in beds and up to 10 people.

The villa took the name “Daphne” from the fragrant homonymous plant which grows around the house that is used by local people to make tea or as a herb in traditional Cretan cuisine!

Layout of the villa:

Located in a 4,000 sq. m. high fenced olive grove Villa Daphne is a 350 sq. m. accommodation consisting of two floors. The open plan first floor is accessed through the main entrance and there you will find a living room, a sitting area and a dining area with a lovely view and an exit to the garden and the pool. Also found is a large fully equipped kitchen next to the dining area, the master bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with two single beds. There is a bathroom with a bath, a WC and a laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

On the ground floor there are two more bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds and the main bathroom with a bath. There is a playroom with a 40’’ HDTV, a Playstation, a Nintento Wii and board games while just next to the playroom there is a door leading to the indoor swimming pool area with Jacuzzi. A second smaller kitchen is also found on this floor making it more independent.

The single beds in the bedrooms can also be converted to a double bed with a double bed size mattress topper.

Outdoors the villa offers a huge 100 sq. m swimming pool with sun beds and umbrellas. Next to the pool you will find the newly built barbecue with an outdoor dining table in front of the garden-park situated under the olive trees! The whole area is fenced and secured with an alarm system offering our guests safety and privacy!

Really delivers what it says on the packet!

  • 5 of 5

If you choose this villa based on the images you will not be disappointed. The house is huge, the layout such that larger groups feel they can have individual space. Facilities are great. Cleaning service every 3 days adds a bit of extra luxury. Markos is one of the best villa hosts we have ever come across and we have stayed in quite a few villas in several countries. Our family spent hours in the pool. Easy to spend a whole day at "home" without getting bored, but also easy to get out and about sight-seeing. You do need a car though, and the entrance to the property is "off track" so no conducive to easily walking out at night. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone.

Stunning villa with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The rental agents are absolutely fantastic to work with, Kostos Vasilakis, property manager at Etouri Properites makes things so easy - I will book again in a heartbeat with Kostos and have high trust in Etouri.

The villa is immaculately clean, with a cleaning service every three days. It is also very well decorated. The pool is a show-stopper and if you want a villa with a spectacular pool - this is the one for you! The best villa pool we saw in the area. The outdoor bbq area is superb and the pool is flanked with numerous sun loungers and a kids play area.

The online pictures really deliver what the villa is.

The villa was very well stocked with supplies including food, detergent and excellent amenities in the bathrooms.

Mr. Markos the villa owner is very responsive if you need anything additional. If you really want to hunker down at a luxury villa and spend most of your days by an incredible pool, this is the place to be.

Local information is provided and the villa is in easy reach of Platanes and many local taverna's within a 1km range.

I give this villa 4.5 stars and would give it a full 5 if the roads to it were a little more accessible and agreeable to local taxi drivers.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

I always think it is useful to read other peoples experiences of visits when making my villa selections so wanted to share mine.

As is usual it is the small things that make a difference and Kostas was a fantastic host. I think it would be impossible not get on with him and his assistance to showing around on arrival, making sure cleaning was done thoroughly as well as great advice on places to visit was invaluable!

The villa itself was beautiful, all facilities were of excellent quality and the pool was the largest one I have seen for these types of villa. The area on the coast towards Rethymon had most of the bars, restaurants and shops needed. It was nice to be able to get to Heraklon, Chania and the south coast from here, especially as a narrow part of the island to cross. I would in addition recommend Bestcars, who we were given the contact via the villa booking and the service from them was faultless with delivery at the airport, great little open top car too!

I would easily recommend this villa and when visiting Crete again would have no hesitation in staying here again, thanks, Pete

Wonderful villa and warm hospitality of owner

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually post reviews but we chose Villa Daphne for our 'Familymoon' (our honeymoon but taking our children, 3 and 13).

The villa is around an hours drive from the airport and easy to find.

Overall we were delighted with the layout and condition of the property. It is hugely spacious and exceptionally well maintained. Wonderful views from the terrace of the mountains and ocean (with great sunsets every evening). Everything you could possibly need is there and the owners have gone out of their way to provide a wonderful array of useful items such as charcoal for the outdoor BBQ, their own olive oil and a host of other items.

The villa was cleaned very regularly and always spotless. On each visit and wonderful array of gifts were provided which was a very wonderful touch. On arrival and departure the owner also provided gifts, deeply sweet.

The owner was warm and helpful and we had to contact them a few times during our stay for one reason or another, nothing was too much trouble.

Location wise it is about a five minute drive from the nearest shops etc so you need car and can't easily walk out for an evening etc. But the upside is complete peace. The private gardens are huge, you are not overlooked and even around the gardens are just acres of olive groves to explore for nature walks.

The indoor pool was a nice touch but the outdoor one the main event. Large, clean and definitely the wow factor. The outdoor BBQ and dining area overlook the pool which makes a nice backdrop to relaxed dinners.

Overall a great time was had by all. Would recommend taking on some of the optional extras such as the private Chef (Stelios Fanourakis) - food was incredible and plentiful and made a couple of very special evenings once we had put the children in bed. The masseuse(Antonis Maragoudakis) and his colleague we booked for two occasions and having a massage whilst listening to music on the terrace as the sunset is a special memory. We also hired a private boat for the day to take us to Balos Beach (Sea Star Chania) which was great but a little rough with the waves for our little ones liking!

In terms of places to visit that are nearby (we were on holiday here for 9 days and didn't manage to explore a tiny fraction of what Crete has to offer) we recommend Old Town Rethymno - wonderful shops and restaurants with a nice little harbour - about 15 minutes drive (eat at La Boheme)

Superb Luxury Villa with Amazing pool

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my extended family included children, babies and grandparents.

The villa is spacious, very clean with luxurious fixtures and fittings throughout. The rooms are all air-conditioned, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and includes plenty of accessories to prepare food with. Outside, the swimming pool is the centrepiece - warm, clean, non-irritating with salt and a truly amazing place to relax. The BBQ area next to it id perfect for those long evenings eating, drinking and playing games, next to the lit pool.

The host Markos and agent Kostas were first class and could not do enough for us during our stay including regular towel changes, cleaning, local advice and the memorable cakes and coffee that he always brought us every few days.

This Villa is secluded, secure and very peaceful. You can relax and leave your belongings scattered as you enjoy its grounds. I cannot recommend a stay here enough. Truly superb.

Fantastically clean and stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at this villa. The villa has a fantastic view and everything was spotlessly clean and in perfect working condition

We met Markos, the owner, when we arrived. He showed us where everything was and showed us how to work everything, which made us feel immediately welcome.

Markos kindly recommended some wonderful restaurants and was in contact by text whenever we had any questions which was very reassuring. The villa was cleaned with Linen and towels cleaned every 3 days which was also lovely

Especially nice touches were the extras that were provided such as coffee & tea, herbs, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, liquid soap, toilet rolls, olive oil made from the olive trees in the garden

Our children loved the pool and the garden which again was extremely well maintained and spotless.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to anyone Its a real sanctuary - extremely private and peaceful but also close enough to restaurants and supermarkets in nearby Rethymno which we also particularly liked.

Villa Daphne has an amazing location for unforgettable holidays!

Totally isolated and centred in the middle of a rural area abundant with olive trees it offers full privacy for those wishing to stay in a luxury accommodation away from it all! 

Simultaneously the villa is only 1.5 km away from the beach, living areas and Sfakaki market. Also found at a distance of 5 km are the well known tourist resorts "Platanias" and "Adelianos Kampos" where you can find supplies, amenities, services and entertainment! 

Finally the city of Rethymno is 10 minutes (12 km) away by car!

The location gives you the advantage of quiet and private holidays engulfed in Cretan nature but close to everything! 

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
