A beautiful villa with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 adults who made this amazing villa our home for 7days. The villa itself was roomy, spotlessly clean and had all amenities needed. The hosts/owners were very hospitable & generous, attended to any needs whilst being unobtrusive.

With 4 large bedrooms and 2 & 1/2 bathrooms, large kitchen, living areas and balconys, there was plenty of room for all.

The pool area was a great place to relax.

The small town of Kalyves has supermarkets, cafes, tavernas, shops and beaches. It is within walking distance but a car is necessary to explore the area. Chania is about 20kms away.

A wonderful stay was had by all.

Very good

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there summer 2016 with our family of 5. The property is in a very good shape. Clean, all facilities needed are there, good airconditioning in every room, mosquito gaze everywhere, everything works, and lots of space for us. The rooms were clean 2x per week with many towels, like in a good hotel. The parents of Gus live below. They speak English very well and are really kind and supportive. The swimming pool is beautiful although rather small for a real swim. The property is 2 miles or so from the village, uphill, and it's better to have a car when you stay there. For our family it was a really nice vacation.

Excellent in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa in August 2015 for 8 nights. The villa is beautiful and in top notch condition. In fact, it looks brand new. The views from this villa are just gorgeous. Sea in front, olive groves surrounding, and beautiful mountains in the distance. The home was completely air conditioned, the beds were very comfortable, and the interior space was large. Everything was immaculate. The outside patios and decks are amazing and we enjoyed meals outside and also evening beverages watching the sunset. The pool was a treat, with fantastic views as well. The owners are absolutely lovely people who were terrific to both transact with as well as to meet. They take great care of this special property and treat their guests with such hospitality. It was nice knowing that if we had a question, they were accessible. We had a truly wonderful relaxing vacation here and hope to return to this amazing villa.
