Fabulous villa in beautiful surroundings
I travelled to Crete along with my husband and mum who is 92 to attend the wedding of my son who was getting married on the beach near Georgiopolous. The villa was perfect for our needs and everything was just as described on the website. It was excellent for my mother as she had the twin bedroom on the ground floor and the use of the bathroom opposite so she was very well catered for and she could enjoy sitting in the shade while we enjoyed lounging by the pool. Our room on the first floor was lovely with the large balcony and the bed was very comfortable. It was also lovely to have air conditioning although we found using the large floor standing fan was sufficient for us even although the temperatures were in the high 20s. We did not do much in the way of cooking as there are so many nice places to eat round about but I could see that the villa was very well equipped should you wish to make your own meals, The villa is in a small village which is within walking distance of Kavros and you can also walk down to the beach in a short time by cutting down a small road which brings you out just beside the Georgiopolous Beach Resort hotel where there is an underpass that takes you onto the beach road on the other side of the National Road. We had a car just to make things easier for my mum but I think we could have managed without one if we had been on our own as we enjoy walking and exploring the areas we visit. The pool was cleaned every day we were there and was absolutely spotless and we thoroughly enjoyed cooling off in there whilst sunbathing. We had other family members staying in the area and they were all very impressed by the villa when they visited. All in all we had a lovely time and hope to return to the villa again as we love Crete and especially the area west from Rethymon which has so many lovely places to visit. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa. I can only think of one improvement that could be made and that would be putting a sign up on the road outside the villas saying Kournas Beach Villas as we did have a bit of a problem finding it when we arrived in the early hours of the morning.
Thank you Janet for taking the time to write this 5 star review of Villa Jessica. I am delighted to hear you all had a lovely stay and and all went well for your sons wedding. I am so pleased you enjoyed the facility’s in Villa Jessica and enjoyed the area and all the lovely local tavernas where the food is very reasonable and superb. It was my pleasure to have you as my guests.
Thank you once again
Really comfortable and well set up property
Having considered accommodation in Georgopolis itself, mainly with view to ease of eating out at night, we opted for the facilities at Villa Jessica instead. It turned out to be the correct decision. The restaurants are only a 7 euro taxi ride away, and it was much more relaxing to return to your own pool-side having been out for the day, or to just spend the odd day beside the pool. The pool area is well maintained and cleaned every day, and the villa has everything likely to be needed. The owner is also very helpful, and happy to be contacted if needed. I'd thoroughly recommend the property for a family or for two couples.
Fantastic holiday villa
Great holiday. Very friendly complex, was welcomed by the owners friends and invited out for an evening meal. Tried many restaurants that were recommended by the owners . The villa was very clean and tidy and well presented. A short walk to local bars and restaurants. Will definately go back again.
Had a great family holiday at Villa Jessica
Great welcome beer wine and basics on arrival.
Everything nice and clean. Lovely bedding towels and facilities.
Dish washer, washing machine and microwave.
Enjoyed the pool and sitting area. Pool cleaned daily. Loved the sitting area upstairs. Great for late night gin and tonics.
Lots to do in the area. Many good restaurants in Georgiopoli and cocktail bars.
Owner very helpful and gave lots of information about the villa, the area, places to visit and good restaurants.
Had a car but also used taxis so we could have a drink which were very well priced and helpful drivers.
Lots of lovely beaches and restaurant bars.
If you like fish restaurants go to Chania and Rethymnon.
Have stayed at this villa 5 times and have booked again for May 2017.
A good holiday overall
We stayed at Villa Jessica for 2 weeks (3 adults). We chose the villa based on the listing description and the location indicator and were disappointed to find that these were misleading. The villa is between Kavros and Georgioupolis. It is a 25 minute walk to the main street in Kavros and a one hour walk to Georgioupolis. We were expecting to be able to easily walk to restaurants and sadly this proved not to be the case in the heat. We used taxis a lot which though efficient, added to the cost of the holiday. We used a hire car for our longer trips to Knossos and Spinalonga.
The villa is described as recently completed and luxury although a number of things needed replacement or repair e.g. air conditioning downstairs, blind on a large window into the living area, the BBQ. The owner was very helpful when the washing machine broke down. It was fixed within the day.
The villa was clean. Also the pool area was very clean and well maintained and was definitely the best feature.
Review Villa Jessica
We stayed at this property for a fortnight in June 2016. Family of 4 including 2 teenage daughters.
The Villa is in super condition, modern, spacious with all amenities and spotlessly clean. There is a lovely outdoor pool shared by 4 of the Villa owners. The complex is maintained really well, daily cleaning of pool area etc. Also has BBQ. Home owner could not have done more to assist, loads of tips and had food & drink in Villa on the night we arrived.
Located within 10 minute walk of Kavros, a small town with plenty restaurants, supermarket etc. Beach is superb, a 6km sandy beach.
Would recommend a car.
No hesitation in recommending this Villa.
Kournas Beach Development is located in the village of Asproulianos close to Kavros which is a large village containing many tavernas and supermarkets catering to all your holiday needs. It is ideally situated close to Lake Kournas an area of outstanding beauty. This stunning fresh water lake is habitat to turtles and many varieties of birds, small boats can be hired or sit, relax and enjoy the view from one of the taveras. Georgioupolis is approximately 5 minutes by car. This small town has a square with many bars, restaurants and tavernas. The beautiful beach starts at Georgioupolis and stretches 6km towards Rethymnon. Rethymnon is approximately 20 minutes by car. This lively, modern location has a busy night-life enjoyed by all ages. Chania is approximately 45 minutes by car and has a pretty harbour with many restaurants to relax and enjoy. On the beach you can simply sit and sunbathe, take a break in one of the beach bars or experience one of the water activities available.
