About Mr Ian Johnson

Eighteen years ago we finally realized our long held dream and set off from England to our new life on the warm and sunny island of Crete. We had already purchased a plot of land with a house and one acre of orange trees and olive trees.

In the time honoured fashion of the island it took over a year to overcome the paperwork and legalities connected with our purchase but then we were able to start our huge project.

The gardens and villas slowly took shape, each year bringing exciting changes as the trees and plants matured. The result is now three villas set in beautiful gardens. Having been to Greece on previous occasions we wanted to make the accommodation spacious. A large bathroom was a must and raised sun terraces were top priority. We wanted to create individual privacy without being isolated and a pool that you could really swim in.

Mr Ian Johnson purchased this house in 1999

Why Mr Ian Johnson chose Tsikalaria

Spacious well equipped villa to explore Crete

Having separate entrances to both bedrooms and separate bathrooms, this accommodation is ideally suited for families with older children or two couples

Guestbook comments from the manager

The villa is surrounded by a very nice and well kept garden. The large pool is surrounded by grass which Ian (the owner) in good English takes great care with his wife and it is very pleasant to sit and cool off in the shade of trees. Ian is always available to help without disturbing. The residence entrance is poorly marked and relatively hard to find. The villa is located near Souda, typical small town without tourists and near the well known resort of Hania. Beautiful beaches around but the best require a little car. Overall we recommend.

Peaceful hideaway near Chania

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week in June and it was absolutely gorgeous! Ian is a terrific host, discrete and helpful. His garden is lovingly tended and he is always followed by his entourage of friendly dogs and the occasional cat. The pool is utterly wonderful, it's huge and there are lots of sun loungers dotted about for your use and it's floodlit at night. The villa is simple but just right, with a lovely covered veranda to sit out on and eat your breakfast. We were very comfortable and it's a little oasis from the bustle of being on the beach or in Chania. It's tucked away, you can walk to a cafe and taverna and the local shop but we never got round to it (!). It's very close to Souda, feels more like being in a suburb rather than a village but it's very peaceful and a 15 minute drive into the heart of Chania. You can also take the bus in from the end of the road. We were in a perfect location for various lovely beaches all about 20 minutes away by car and great sites like Aptera. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Friendly Owner, Good Setting, Nice Villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 10 days with 3 teenage boys so the extra bathroom was very helpful - villa was good, few areas needed some upgrade but fine for our stay. Pool was great. Loved Crete and proximity to village and local town and beautiful Chania a short drive/bus ride away. Well situated to explore the west end of Crete. Ian, the owner was very friendly and helpful.

Not Prepared Well

  • 3 of 5

Our Villa was the only one that was open and as such we were under the impression that we were the first visitors of the season. The Villa and Gardens are lovely and pool is great. But when we arrived the place had not been cleaned and was dusty and dirty obviously it had just been opened after the winter and very little preparation had taken place. The bedding was clean and prepared but that was all. We had to clean everything and there was thick dust and grease over the cooker. There was a smashed picture with glass all over the floor in the living room. Ian came and made a half hearted attempt at cleaning it up and we had to finish the rest. Plates and crockery that chipped should have been replaced. In a nutshell preparation was next to none existant.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review- we did say that we would take responsibility and liability for the broken picture during your stay. Our cleaners have been retained for several seasons for their high level of work and presentation and as we are onsite, we are always prepared to recall them to guests that have any issues, as they live in the village. On examination we did find a chip on one of the plates and we apologise for the oversight.

Belle maison, dans un grand jardin très calme. Merci à Ian pour son hospilaté.

Piscine vraiment au top, encore plus si la propreté de la piscine était optimisé.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location bien placée pour visiter le Nord ouest de l'ile.
