Amazing and wonderful place to stay with family!

  • 5 of 5

Visiting Crete was my wife’s life dream and staying at Alexandra’s villa was a dream come true! Alexandra greeted my family of five with three sons with a Cretan lunch which was wonderful. It was very comfortable and could easily hold more people. The villa is spacious, clean and beautiful. She has very nice taste in her decor too. It is very quiet and private with a clean and beautiful pool. This was our first time using VRBO and was even better than advertised. Alexandra will answer emails in less than 24 hours and was very helpful with answering questions and providing advice. As Americans, this was our first time for my family visiting Crete and Alexandra made us feel at home. The nearby city of Prines has very nice restaurants especially Giannikos Taverna which is 5 minute drive. We can not stop talking about Alexandra’s amazing villa to people here in the US!

Excellent home to relax in with friends or family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Aleksandra's home. The property is well positioned to explore the island, the pool is great to refresh after a day on the beach or lounge by all day long. The property is thoughtfully decorated and spotlessly clean. Aleksandra was always available for questions both prior to and during our stay. She even made some veggie Cretian food for us to enjoy on arrival. We hope to stay again.

Sehr erholsame Ferien - Wohlfühlfaktor garantiert!

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Jahr war unser 8. Aufenthalt auf Kreta. Wir buchen immer ein Ferienhaus mit Pool in der Region Rethymnon. Im letzten Jahr bin ich auf dieses wunderbare Haus gestoßen und wir wurden nicht enttäuscht!! Es war einer der erholsamsten Urlaube die wir erlebt haben. Das Haus ist am oberen Ortsrand von Prines gelegen. Das Grundstück ist sehr schön zugewachsen, man ist wirklich für sich. Alexandra ist eine herzensgute Frau. Bei unserer Ankunft hat sie uns mit einem typisch griechischen Gericht überrascht. Nach dem Flug kam uns das sehr gelegen ;-) Es war einzigartig lecker! Auch zwischendurch hat sie uns köstliche Kleinigkeiten vor die Tür gestellt. Nach 1 Woche wurde die Wäsche gewechselt und eine Zwischenreinigung gemacht. Der Pool wurde stets gepflegt, war immer sauber. Im Haus befinden sich 3 Schlafzimmer, 2 davon oben mit Zugang zur Dachterasse. Von dort hat man einen tollen Blick auf die Bucht von Geogougopoli. Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Wir haben uns die 14 Tage richtig richtig wohl gefühlt! Wir können das Haus zu 100% weiterempfehlen und werden es auch auf jeden Fall noch einmal buchen.
