About the property

The property has been renovated in 2016 and has been fully repainted using eco-friendly non toxic paints. Brand new beds, matreses, towels and linen, etc. Also a brand new spacious wardrobe has been installed. A new stove/cooking oven has also been placed.

Comfortably sleeps 4 (1double & 2single) in two rooms and has an additional/optional en-suite room upstairs which has 2 bunkbeds for an additional 2 guests (access through a semi-steep ladder so NOT suitable for limited mobility guests).

It is 5 minutes walk to the beach and 15 minutes walk to the city center.

We are Pet friendly, with AirCon (Green Policy applies) and offer exclusive use of the unlimited 24Mb/s WiFi.

absolutley loved the place.,

agios cente 15 min walk ( in flip flops)

lake 20 mins ( same flip flops).

good beachs ,10 to 20 min walk.

agios is to die for. more reseraunts and choice than you will ever need.

owner, ore is brilliant , responding quickly and positivley to suggestions.

if you want hotel life dont book this villa.

if you yearn for something authentic and somewhere to be yourself this is perfect

Well if you are looking for a 5⭐️ Hotel this isn't the place for you ! But if you are looking to stay in typical small Greek Villa you have found one of the best!!! The views are to die for. There is a manageable kitchen , now complete with sandwich maker ( which we used to toast bread for breakfast ) used the oven to cook chicken for an evening meal. The outside area is just the best. There is a large table and we used the captains chairs which I found very comfortable. There is a laundry room and an outdoor toilet with a hand shower . So nice to use after the walk home from the beach. There is also the outdoor shower which is a godsend when temperatures hit 46 degrees which it did for us ! Views of the sea and the mountains will stay with me . You can hear dogs barking and cockrills at different times of the day . The walk to the beach took a few minutes over some rough ground then a short walk through a hotel complex. The first beach has lovely restaurants but no sun beds but the sea is amazing. We loved Almiros beach . It was only another 5 minutes round the bay. You could have 2 sun beds and an umbrella for 7 euros and the lady even gave you a bottle of ice cold water each ! The location of Villa Frog has to be the best. So close to supermarkets, bakery and just a little further (no more than 10 min walk) to Agios Nikolaos. There is so much to see and do and over 100 restaurants (most of which overlook the beautiful sea. I think you can gather we had the most wonderful time. Orestis and his family are so kind and helpful, it was so good to know I could contact him if there were any problems which there were none ! Orestis sent very detailed instructions for everything. He even talked to our very Greek taxi driver to give him the final directions. There is a bit of a dirt track road before the drive which taxis refuse to drive on but it is only a 100 yards or so. We would always walk to AN and get a taxi back , I always found it easier to ask to be dropped at the Police station. On our departure Uncle came to take our cases to the police station where we met our taxi. I know this is a long review but I hope it gives a very clear picture of a wonderful place to stay. Thank you Orestis ☀️

Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This little villa is small and comfortable. Just perfect for a quiet stay. With a view of the nearby bay, and waking up to the sounds of local chickens, you have the feeling you are in a remote and private sanctuary. Yet it is a mere 5 minute walk from the center of the busy and active Agios Nikolaos, nearby beach, and minutes away from the main highway leading you to all points on the island. The host and his family are gracious and welcoming.

Wir hatten in Orestis Haus eine wunderbare Zeit! Es liegt etwas außerhalb der Stadt A. Nikolaos, die aber trotzdem zu Fuß schnell zu erreichen ist. Auch zum Meer ist es nicht weit. Das Haus ist einfach eingerichtet und sauber. Wir haben immer die Außendusche benutzt (was wir sehr schön fanden) und konnten uns sehr ungesehen und ungestört auf dem Grundstück bewegen. Wir haben es genossen auf der Terrasse zu sitzen und den Blick in die Ferne auf die Berge Kretas und das Meer schweifen zu lassen. Wir haben den Wind gehört, Vögelgesang, Hundebellen und das Gackern der Hühner nebenan sowie ab und zu ein vorbeifahrendes Auto, das zu einem der Häuser in den Hügeln fuhr, ohne Einsicht auf das Grundstück zu haben.

Der Vermieter und seine Familie vor Ort sind unfassbar reizend und hilsbereit! Der Kontakt war auch schon im Vorfeld einfach großartig! Wir danken sehr für den Aufenhalt und können den Ort an alle, die keine Hotels mögen und dem Massentourismus entgehen möchten weiterempfehlen ! Außerdem fanden wir den Preis sehr angemessen und sind dankbar, eine günstige Unterkunft auf Kreta gefunden zu haben! A.D.O.

Unieke plek

  • 4 of 5

Mooi opgeknapt authentiek huisje, vrijstaand op groot terrein in de bergen. Je bent van alle gemakken voorzien. Wij hebben gedoucht in de tweede badkamer buiten, een beter alternatief voor binnen want die is erg krap. In de keuken een grote nieuwe koelkast en elektrisch fornuis, alleen een waterkoker ontbrak. Bedden waren voor ons te hard maar nieuw. Op 5 minuten lopen van een heerlijk strandje. Heerlijk rustig en gezellig met de huiskat. Orestis is erg aardig en zorgt voor goede info en service . We hebben goed gegeten in het restaurant bij het strand maar Agios Nikolaos is vlakbij. Een heerlijke plek om Oost Kreta te verkennen en lekker tot rust te komen.

Petite maison de vacances, minimaliste, en pleine nature, à deux pas de la mer et de la ville.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons aimé vivre à "La Frog "qui correspond à ce que nous cherchons : simplicité, authenticité, immersion dans la nature (mention spéciale pour la douche extérieure!!), vue mer et proximité immédiate de la plage et de la ville d'Agios Nikolaos que l'on peut rejoindre à pieds .

Nous avons été très bien accueillis par la famille d' Orestis, avec beaucoup de gentillesse et de disponibilité.

La description de l'annonce est conforme à la réalité, la maison était très propre et nous avons vraiment apprécié cette maison de vacances.

Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse.
