Guestbook comments from the manager

Photo's didn't do Villa Jakita justice! Villa just perfect, view astounded us on a regular basis (better than a wet Tuesday morning in Scotland) We will be back. A great venue for fun with friends. Two teenage boys particularly loved the amazing pool! Lovely facilities and thank you for the midweek clean and coming to collect us in the middle of the night. Much appreciated. Mr F & party (Scotland)

After 14 years of staying in villas, this has been the most spectacular. The views are unforgettable and the villa is so close to some beautiful Cretan villages. Paul & Lenny have been superb, way more than you would expect. MrJ & family (UK)

We had a wonderful time in your lovely villa. We were especially thrilled with the gorgeous view. Thanks for sharing it with us. Mr P & family ( England)

Beautiful villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at villa Jakita. We loved waking up to the amazing view each morning and the peaceful location was perfect. A car is needed to get around. It's only a 5 minute drive to Elounda. We were two families with teenagers and there was plenty of space outside and in.

Paul is very efficient and responsive for all booking queries and Chrissa was excellent before and during our stay helping with transfers and car hire.

Would 100% recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes Villa Jakita is peaceful and has stunning views, the photos on the website never do justice to the actual views, you need to be there to realise it. Glad you appreciated the service as well.

Stunning views - welcome breeze!

  • 5 of 5

Up the hill overlooking Elounda the views are stunning and very beautiful - this makes lazing by the pool or on the veranda very relaxing.

Don't worry about being about 3km outside of Elounda - the road up the hill is perfectly safe and it takes no time at all to get to and from the village.

The elevation also brings with it a welcome breeze, at least for August.

The property is well supplied with all basic items, and water aside, everything works as it should.

We were a party of 7 and found the property spacious enough for our requirements.

The Management company were very efficient and quick to deal with any problems (this is Greece after all!) and the mid-stay clean was a pleasant surprise.

The area is well served with restaurants, beaches and rocks to swim off - the sea is beautifully clean and surprisingly warm.

This has been one of our most relaxing and enjoyable villa holidays.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Villa Jakita and thank you for your comments. You said the views are stunning which is an often over used word with holiday homes but as you found out they are truly stunning from Villa Jakita. Sorry you had a problem with water for a period but as always Martin our manager is extremely reliable when you most need somebody. We take customer service very seriously and will be reviewing our water backup options to prevent any further problems.

A great location with luxury and quality decor.

  • 5 of 5

Crete is an unexpected paradise for tranquil sojourn. Offering great views, excellent food and a hospitable people. The property is well located and spacious with excellent and high quality decor. Very upmarket. The terrace views are spectacular. The restaurant in Pines (2km away) will even supply a cook for the homily BBQ. I was impressed ... so forget Nice and Orlando.

The heated infinity swimming pool and the thoughtful supply of the food basket by bluebay crete holiday rentals and their excellent and seamless attention to service made the experience stress free. They even cleaned the house mid-stay!!

We will certainly go back. Pictures paint a thousand words. At villa Jakita they express volumes. Great for couples for romance or a family looking for quality family time.

Fantastic villa, gorgeous location!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Jakita is a wonderful holiday home in an absolutely fantastic position. The views all around are AMAZING, every window having a visual delight to behold! We are a family of 6 and the villa was perfect in size for us, more than enough space for all of us and equipped with everything we needed - a real home from home. The showers in particular were great, children's hair rinsed in under 30 seconds they are so powerful! It is a beautifully designed villa, light, bright and airy and really very comfortable. The location for us with 4 children was perfect, no near neighbours, in fact no buildings in front, behind or to the left of the property (other than some lovely old windmills). The closest neighbours (delightful) about 200m away, far enough not to feel overlooked. The property doesn't really have a garden as such, but the lovely pool and surrounding patio area are spacious, well equipped and nicely private. Th front garden and sides are mainly hard standing but beautifully landscaped. Our 4 children didn't need anything more than the pool, so it was perfect for us Small children would need watching in the pool as there are quite big drops from 3 sides, but this does make for a spectacular swimming experience!! It would be hard to fault this property. Elounda itself is lovely, a happy, safe, friendly little place with a HUGE choice of places to eat. We were there for 3 weeks and didn't have a single bad meal, food delicious everywhere, all 4 of our children tucked in to the local food with relish and they are all vegetarian - plenty of choice. All the staff we met were lovely, the villa was cleaned twice weekly with fresh towels and bedding each time and the local knowledge and insider information they have made for some great trips and good food! There is a sweet little taverna just 2 minutes slow walk down the hill from the villa, well worth a visit or two. To sum up, we have been to some lovely places as a family on our various holidays and our rule is we never go back to the same place twice, but having stayed in Villa Jakita and with so much to see and do on Crete, we would be sorely tempted to break that rule for the first time! A highly recommended holiday home.

This luxury villa of 155 square metres on one level nestles in the hills above the town of Elounda, affording spectacular views over the stunning bay of Mirabella.

There are also quite a few other beaches within easy reach, each with its own particular charm.
