Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Rethimno - Beachfront Iris House

Sleeps 7. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, swimming pool

Iris property is located right on the beach of Rethymno City, yet it is unreachable by the city noise, posing a unique opportunity for you to enjoy the life of the city together with a concealed and quiet accommodation.So what do you say to this? Wake up, open your balcony door and sit on the beach for your morning breakfast? Well this is what you have worked for all the year and this is what you will get! Iris Beachfront house is particularly stylish, featuring modern design, layout and decoration, while all modern amenities from Wi-Fi to air-condition in all the communal areas and bedrooms and from cotton sheets to pool towels. It consists of a spacious open plan living area with direct access to the pool area and beach where siting and enjoying the view of the sea is something you will always remember. The dining area next to it consist comfortable table and chairs for the entire group with design leather chairs and a very expensive table made of oak. A fully equipped kitchen where except from the necessary of the fridge, kitchen or washing machine you will find a microwave, a ''Tassimo'' espresso machine, toaster, blender and cleaning supplies, including liquid hand soap and dishwashing liquidsFurther in someone will find 3 stylish bedrooms all with their own big wardrobes air-condition, flat screen TV's with individual satellite channels and mattresses with ISO certificate for a very comfy sleep. 2 of the bedrooms have double beds and one has twin beds but can easily put next to each other if needed. More over 2 bathrooms comes along for all the party to get ready and head on to the town. Going out of the house and by the pool someone can find a relatively adequate size pool, lounge comfortable seats made of Bamboo, sunbeds, BBQ, a dining table with chairs and of course the gate to step on the sand!Be prepared to enjoy the magnificence of the Cretan sunrise and sunset in full. One of the highlights staying here is when it comes the sunrise or sunset is the atmosphere that the lighting of the property is giving itself, along with the rainbow colors of the sunset outside on the sea ….. After all, this is what this property is named after (Iris means sunrise).

About Manos Dafermos

Hello there,

I am Manos, owner and manager of CreteVillas4U. I have been in the hospitality sector long before CreteVillas4U, however. I was actually born, grew up, and spent most of my life in a hotel owned by my family. So, I guess it came as no surprise when I expressed my wish to study in Rhodes’ Tourism School and, later on, when I decided to start my own business in the sector.

One thing I learned growing up in a family-run hotel is that hospitality is more than hotel management, logistics and operations. It is a culture, passing down from one generation to the next. You can study to be a hotel manager but you cannot study to be hospitable.

I apply this philosophy in my business as well. The rule is simple: the guests of the villas I manage are my guests. As an active traveller, I expect nothing less myself.

The fourth generation of Dafermos hoteliers has already been born. I know now that my two beautiful children will probably follow my steps, like I did before them. There is a small difference though: they are smarter, more educated, better (big smile).

All the best,

Manos Dafermos

What a great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very pleasant. We liked the home,specially the space of the home,enough tall for two family,the size of all rooms, specially the living room. We liked the outside area,garden and pool and area around the pool to have sun. We liked the situation just near the sea and the calm of this beach. the home is really comfortable. We liked the Marianna's welcome and the service while our stay. W'll back certainly an other year.

Thanks for all

Mr Edmond B.

Brilliant location, excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for 6 nights and this is what we have to say about the property and the owner.

- it was exactly what we hoped and much more.

- the apartment is perfectly placed, close to the sea beach, the old town market and some good restaurants.

- Marianna was always a phone call away, she did a fantastic job at looking after us. She did a platinum service to arrange a rental car - the whole thing was done is less than 30 min.

- the house has a nice decor, relaxing atmosphere, and kept in neat and tidy throughout. We felt we walked into home away from home.

- Marianna was very hospitable, brought some nice things for us before we left, goes to show she goes above and beyond to make sure the guests enjoy their stay.

I hope all the best for Marianna and John. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

-Here is my favourite restaurant in town which I think you should go to. It's cold ''Prima-Plora''

It's a great value for money, by the sea and with beautiful views. I would recommend here to eat fish dishes and is just 200m away.

-After being in Prima-Plora I would suggest that you head down to ''Maestros'' for a drink since they have one of the best views of the

-Another good restaurant very close to the villa is called ''Almyra'' which is about 5 minutes' walk from the house. Again you can try here some fish food and the restaurant is just next to the sea.


-A good choice in the old town is ''Avli'' restaurant

A bit more expensive but still worth going to. It's one of the best (if not the best) restaurant in the old town. Here they have both fish and meat dishes. Some times during the weekend they have a dj too.

-Last option is again in the old town ''Alana'' restaurant

Here is very good for meat and very good for value of money as well.

-Also another must is our ''raki restaurants''. Consider them as the 'tappas' in Spain. They are located in the old town and its worth sitting in any of them for one time. The tables of these restaurants most of the time are located on the street, so it's fun to sit out and watch the people go by''

As far as water sports you will find from the other side of the town (2klm) quit a lot to choose from
