About Vicky Matthaioudaki
I am an Art Director/Designer working for various established companies such as Colgate Palmolive Greece, Domino's Pizza Greece, Praktiker Greece and Athens Golf Club Catering. Rethymnon is my home town although I have been living in Athens for many years now. My parents live in Rethymnon and I use this house every time I go visit them. Since my professional obligations do not allow me to visit my beautiful holiday home as often as I would like, I have decided to allow eclectic travelers to enjoy this experience!
Vicky Matthaioudaki purchased this House in 1920
Why Vicky Matthaioudaki chose Rethimno
Rethymnon is my home town and this property has passed down to me from my parents; and to them by their parents. It was built in 1920 and was fully reconstructed few years ago.
What makes this House unique
The location is most definitely a highlight; in a quiet yet central area by the sea and with so many local attractions to choose from (museums, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, cinemas etc) within a walking distance. The nearest beach is also a 5-10 minutes walking distance.

Spacious, light and airy with wonderful views
As soon as we walking into this house we were really pleased with the overall impression. The lounge, dining and kitchen area was very spacious. We loved having 3 balconies. In the morning we would sit overlooking the pretty square and in the evening we would sit watching the sunset going down behind the mountain and sea! We loved being tucked away and yet within a few minutes we were in the town and the little Venetian harbour. The kitchen was very well stocked and had all the basics. The 2 bedrooms were comfortable with nice cotton linen and it was useful having 2 bathrooms. One on each floor. The lighting was good throughout and there was a lovely big comfy corner sofa to sit and relax at the end of a busy day sight seeing. We would certainly recommend this house and stay there again. We loved our walk in Mili gorge. Worth a trip either by car or the tour bus. Check out the Banana Cafe!
There was only 2 of us and it would still be plenty big enough for 4. We would love to visit Rethymon again!
Thank you so much for your nice words! I am really very happy that you enjoyed your stay!
Great location - beautiful view
The home had everything we needed. Vicki was wonderful to work with. I loved the location. A nice smaller city between Heraklion and Chania. We would definitely recommend it.
This gem on the edge of Old Rethymno Town is an incredibly good deal....
The home offers space; light and air flow through a beautifully appointed home interior created by Vicky. Its location is perfect if you want to be separate from tourists and remain within walking distance of the major sites- especially Old Town. I cannot recommend this gem highly enough. Vicky and her father (who was sitting with his Greek friends at the cafe tables downstairs the second night we returned) love this home and extend their warm welcome while giving us all the room we need to have our own experience. Clean, well stocked with essentials, and quiet. We were three over seventy adults- a couple and a friend.
Location is everything
With a bit of negotiation back and forth we came to agreement with Vicky to rent her house for about 12 days. The town of Rethymno is a real gem, our favorite on Crete that we have been visiting for years. To be on the edge of the old town was a real plus. No vehicle required: walk everywhere.
Vicky's father greeted us to give a brief run-through of the property, left us with some fruit, some olive oil and bottle of raki.
The house has balconies galore. Choose the time of day to follow (or evade) the sun. One balcony overlooks a pleasant square with a few cafes/restaurants as well as the main police station. The other balconies overlook the sea and the Fortezza. Dazzling!
The kitchen is very well equipped and wants for nothing. The bathrooms fell a bit short of expectation but they are adequate. Just adequate.
After 4 or 5 days, somebody came in to clean up.
Vicky's recommendations for good restaurants were well received. With food this good in Rethymno at reasonable cost, there was really no need to cook at home - save for breakfast.
We definitely would recommend this house for folks seeking an urban experience on Crete.
Highlight of our trip to Greece
This was the best place we stayed for our entire trip to Greece. The town, the location within the town, the people, the restaurants (Melina, by the Fortress!) all were really wonderful. It's not as touristy as many other places, although there are lots of little alleys full of charming shops and tavernas. The apartment itself was comfortable, the best beds and pillows we had on this trip! She provided plenty of extras like wine, toilet paper, napkins, laundry soap, even shampoo, soap and other bathroom necessities. It was walking distance from all the shops in town, but right on the edge of the ocean so that you were removed from the noise. Plus the balcony is a great spot to watch the sunset! Highly recommended.
Thank you so so much for your nice words!!!
Beautiful sea wiew house
We have the pleasure of this apartment/house
Has one of the great wiew over the ocean with 3 balconies but the one on the top was perfect to start the day from.
The apartment had everything you need and the owner was so friendly.
It's a quiet area and the only thing you could hear was the ocean.
We will be back
Thank you so so much for your nice words!!!
