Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time here, the property is first class as is the owner Mrs Lili who live's beneath this apartment and is always on hand should you need anything.

The apartment was spotless when we arrived and was cleaned twice during our stay

Only real downside is as mentioned in other reviews the third bedroom is currently not air conditioned but I am assured this will be happening soon.

The walk to the village takes around 15 minutes which takes you to a true haven of good Taverna's, shops and the most friendly people we have ever had the good fortune to encounter.

We chose not to hire a car which can make hauling back shopping heavy work but if you take a taxi from the rank outside the large hotel it will take you to the village, wait while you shop and bring you back to the apartment all for around 10 euro.

Thank you Mrs Lili and Valia for a wonderful time

Owner's Response: Dear Paul, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! We would also like to mention that the air condition will be installed this week, as you requested not to do that during your stay, as the owner proposed. It was our pleasure having you as guests and we hope to have the chance to host you again in the future! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.

Nice apartment in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five, with two toddlers and a 12 year old, who spent 4 weeks in Lili's apartment. It is a very nice apartment, beautifully decorated and practically equipped. Stunning view towards the sea that can be enjoyed either from the spacious balcony or from the garden. There are three bedrooms, however one is without window and air conditioning, so it can be challenging to use midsummer unless you keep the door open towards the kitchen/living room. Plenty of closet space, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge w/freezer, coffee maker, toys for the kids... we didn't miss anything. The host is very welcoming and helpful and takes very good care of all her guests.

The distance to the beaches and super markets were a bit long with a two year old who does not use a stroller, but for "longer legs" it is not a problem 😊?

We can highly recommend both location and apartment, and especially if traveling with children.

Ein nahezu perfekter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Im Oktober 2016 waren wir mit 3 Erwachsenen und unserer 5 1/2- jährigen Enkeltochter zu Gast bei Frau Lili.

Die Bilder der modernen und neuen Ferienwohnung im Internet wurden noch von der Wirklichkeit übertroffen. Die Eigentümerin Frau Lili begrüßte uns sehr herzlich und war während unseres gesamten Aufenthalts aufmerksam und hilfsbereit. Zur Badebucht am Stadthafen hatten wir 5 Autominuten oder 15 Minuten zu Fuß. Hier wurden wir am Sandstrand von 23 Grad warmen, sehr klaren Meerwasser, Liegen, Sonnenschirmen und kulinarischer Versorgung begrüßt. Die Menschen vor Ort waren auffallend freundlich. Die nahe kleine Altstadt nutzten die Frauen ausgiebig zum Shoppen.

Der Urlaubsort konnte kaum besser gewählt werden. An den 3 Tagen, an denen wir keinen Sonnenschein hatten, sind wir an die Südküste gefahren und haben hier tolle Tage verbracht.

Natürlich haben wir uns auch einige Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Knossos oder die Städte Heraklion, Chania und das ganz in der Nähe liegende Rethymno angesehen. Speziell die Altstadt von Rethymno mit ihren kleinen Gassen, dem Hafen mit den vielen Fischgaststätten hatte es uns angetan.

Wir können unsere Ferienwohnung in Panormos nur weiterempfehlen und werden auf alle Fälle gern wiederkommen.

Wir hatten wirklich 14 tolle Tage Urlaub!

Nochmals vielen Dank an die Verwalterin, Frau Valia –super Kommunikation!- und natürlich an die Eigentümerin Frau Lili.

Amazing sunsets & beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely apartment situated about a 15 minute walk into the village of Panormo where you will find lots of tavernas, 2 supermarkets, a butchers, bakers & lots of little souvenir shops. A really nice little place.

The apartment is very well equipped with everything you would need. The pool is lovely & well maintained. The garden area to the front of the house is fab for little children.

Mrs Lili (the owner) lives downstairs and is very friendly.

My only area for improvement would be around cleaning, we only received one clean & sheet/towel change during our 2 week stay. I'm sure if we spoke to Mrs Lili we would have got a 2nd clean but we ended up just doing it ourselves. For UK visitors please note their are no UK channels on the cable TV. Apart from those 2 minor things, a fabulous holiday was had by all. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Dear Fiona, thank you for your kind review and we really appreciate the feedback.Regarding the cleaning of the apartment, we are realy sorry to hear that, since we have maid service every three days and all of our guets are very satisfied. We believe that maybe this was due to bad communication.Regards, ThinkVilla Team

Tolle Wohnung, schöner Ausblick, familienfreundlich, sehr sauber

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren bereits in einigen Ferienwohnungen, aber haben noch nie so eine saubere Wohnung erlebt. Sie wurde zudem alle vier Tage gereinigt.

Weiterhin Positiv hervorzuheben: Kühlschrank für den ersten Tag mit Wasser, Brot, Käse, Obst gefüllt. Die Besitzerin Mrs. Lilly ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit - ebenso ihr Mann.

Luftmatratze, Sandspielzeug, Planschbecken würde zur Verfügung gestellt.

Toller Ausblick.

Supermarkt in Fußnähe.


Bad weniger modern als der Rest.

Leider gibt es keine Fliegennetze.

Panormos ist schön und bietet viele leckere Restaurants.

Der private Garten war insbesondere für unsere Kinder toll.

Wir waren Anfang Juni dort und die Anlage war noch sehr leer. Den Pool hatten wir meistens für uns alleine.
