A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful, stunning views within easy access to a stunning part of Crete. The apartment was clean and comfortable and we wanted for nothing....except a kettle 🙂! Thank you Giannis for providing such a gorgeous place to spend the first part of another wonderful Cretan holiday and for going the extra mile and greeting us in the middle of the night because we were caught up in BA flight chaos!

I can highly recommend this property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this modern villa with our two daughters and found everything that we required. It was well furnished and clean, the pool an absolute pleasure in the height of summer and the outlook spectacular. It is necessary to have the use of a car and plan days out to discover the best of the rugged south of the island.

Loved our week in Rodakino

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't recommend the Maistros villa more highly. It's very charming and well maintained with a beautiful pool and very comfortable bedroom, living space and kitchen for our family of four. We had a great time splashing in the pool and just gazing out at the beautiful view, listening to the bleating of the sheep. The southwest coast of Crete is beautiful - the rugged landscape of the cliffs and ravines dropping down to the sea are stunning. We drove back and forth to Hora Sfakion and took the boat to Sweetwater and Marmara beach, Loutro, and the Indros gorge, which are among the most remote and charming beaches we've been to in the world. The view from the road had so many stunning views you couldn't stop at them all. The nearby towns have lovely Tavernas and nice beaches all. Giannis left us with a great map and guidebook that really helped us get oriented. Five stars for Crete. Five stars for Rodakino (ro-DAH-kino). Five stars for Giannis and Miastros Villa.
