What a wonderful surprise!

  • 5 of 5

Not enough praise would be sufficient to qualify our stay at Villa Mariposa!

The place is magnificent, the views are fantastic and best of all, the house, the garden and the swimming-pool are kept immaculate at all times!

Stratos and his mother are the best hosts I’ve ever encounter and since we’re very frequent travelers, I feel that I know what I’m talking about!

I highly recommend visiting Chania and Villa Mariposa will add substantially to your trip in more ways than one!

If I ever go back to Greece this place will be in my priority list!

What a wonderful surprise!

Beautiful villa full of wonderful extras

  • 5 of 5

This villa is as wonderful as all the photos suggest. We had two couples staying at the villa. We choose it because they had two king size beds (American king size beds), which was very hard to find. They could have put the two twins in the third bedroom together to make a third king. The bedrooms all have their own bathrooms with tubs with handheld showers. Taking a shower without covering the entire floor in water is difficult, but the tubs very comfortable and luxurious. We ended up taking baths almost every day. For those of you wondering from the photos, yes, there is a round bed. My friends who stayed in that room tell me it gives you plenty of space for two and, no, you don't fall out. Because it was a fairly rainy week, we used every room in the house, every sitting area outside and almost every implement in the kitchen. Every part of the house is comfortable, beautiful, has great views, and lovely design and art works. If they ever put a railing on their second floor deck, you would have a 360 degree view of the Chania area. As it was, we had great views from the existing decks and porches. There is a washer but no dryer, which is common in Europe; this was a problem because it was a rainy week and we had chosen to stay in a house instead of a hotel so we could do our laundry. Also, they should post instructions on how to turn on the hot water in the house and label the switches. We had to go without hot water our first night. Many houses have the instant hot water heaters which you need to turn on and off every time you shower. Their's is not an instant heater; you have to turn it on well before and remember to turn it off afterwards. The house is well located on a hilltop about 12 minutes from Old Chania, 15 minutes to the airport, and 15 minutes to the highway. The neighborhood was quiet at night with only barking dogs, solved by closing the windows and sliding doors. I think the best part of the rental experience was that they provided us oil olive, honey, and divine homemade orange jam (best I ever had) from their property. They also left enough food in the kitchen for the first morning's breakfast. Someone came in every day to put out the pool cushions, water plants, etc. We never used the pool because it was cold and rainy that week. A maid came every other day to clean the inside of the house. We all loved the house and highly recommend it for up to 6 people.

Lovely Villa and views....however

  • 4 of 5

As with other reviews there is no question that the Villa is lovely, however I do think there are a couple of things renters should be aware of. Firstly, you are renting the top 2 floors of a 3 floor residence. Yes, the owners family who live downstairs are discreet, but nonetheless they are resident on the property while you are staying, and there is plenty of 'coming and going' of people and vehicles as a result throughout the day. An example of this is that there is a remote to open and close the gates, one early evening we went out leaving the gates open, expecting them to still to be open on our return, but they were closed, so having forgotten the remote we had to scale the walls to get in. I am not knocking the quality of the Villa, and the views are great, however it depends how you value your privacy, and I did feel a little uneasy and less relaxed with 2 residences occupied by the family in the floor below the Villa.

Owner's Response: Dear Matthew and family, First of all I’d like to thank you for choosing Villa Mariposa to enjoy your vacation and also for your kind words about the view and the property. I was a little concerned and surprised when we read your review and especially by the fact that you didn’t manage to relax and felt uneasy during your stay, as your comments when you departed were positive and I got the impression that you were overall satisfied. I am really sorry if you didn’t have the chance to read the detailed description of the Villa on our page, in which it is highlighted that the Villa is part of a residential complex with other houses on the plot as well. The villa’s entrance and completely private yard with the pool is on the north side of the plot with no one else having access at it, except of the gardener and the maid who keep the surroundings clean and you were informed about their presence and exact time of arrival in the morning. The other houses are at the south side of the plot with private entrances and no access to the villa’s private yard which is for the use of our guests and only. The plot is limited by a stone wall with a front gate to ensure the privacy and safety of our guests, so in order to maintain this kind of security we keep the front gate closed and we provide our guests a remote control to open and close the gate during their arrival and departure. I’m really sorry that you forgot your remote control and you were in such a trouble, our our phone numbers are always available to our guests in case anything happens. We are constantly trying to keep the standards of hospitality and quality of the Villa high enough and improve over time because our goal is that our guests leave the house with the best memories. I’m sorry if we failed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed, we will try our best next time. Best regards, Stratos

wonderful property and fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mariposa is wonderful - very spacious, clean and airy with all that you need. the central living space is huge, the kitchen is well stocked and there was a lovely welcome package of local goods on arrival, including olive oil from the villa's olive grove. The garden is beautiful, amazing views and a lovely pool with toys provided. the views over Chania and the surroundings are breathtaking. Stratos and his family looked after us beautifully - the right balance of being to hand for any questions but leaving you in peace to enjoy your holiday. Just perfect = we'd like to come back year on year!
