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)

Beautiful villa with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely and really well appointed. Loved the set up and outside space, with the pool overlooking the beautiful town of Elounda, which is a short 10 min drive away. Elounda is the perfect holiday town, not too busy or too sleepy with a pretty harbour, beach and enough beachside restaurants and bars to enjoy. Relatively easy to book a taxi into town for 10 euros if you don't want to drive. Loved our week in villa Jakita.

Beautiful property, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This villa is exacltly as described. The location would be very hard to beat. The view in the morning just takes your breath away. The villa itself is incredibly spacious, although some areas are showing signs of needing to be updated in some places, but nothing that will detract from your stay. The property managers went the extra mile and were really attentive and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble.

As it was nearing winter it would be a good idea to have the pool heated as it can get quite windy and be a little chilly when the sun goes down. This was the perfect place for exploring Elounda and the surrounding areas. We were very impressed with the quality of the food at a small place called The Hope, and also really enjoyed the food at The Ferryman, which was fantastic on both of the nights that we ate there. All in all a fantastic week away, and we will be returning.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your late season stay. The photos on the website of the views can never be as good as when you are actually there, as you say 'takes your breath away'. I will let our local property managers know of your appreciation of their services. Yes its always good to ask for the pool heater late in the year as you did. The owner is constantly reviewing the décor and facilities and has regularly invested in improvements. Hope to see you return. Kind Regards Paul Bluebay Holiday Rentals

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.
