Lovely situation, all the amenities required for a lovely relaxing holiday, but seriously windy!

  • 4 of 5

The villa is well equipped, the outside-space is lovely, the only fault was the pool side lighting which never came on before 2am, bit late for us I'm afraid! We did succumb to the August wind which made things tricky at times, breakfast the garden furniture blew away regularly but that's out of anyone's control. The village taverna and bar were really friendly, especially Stella who was so welcoming and generous. Plakias beach is lovely when it's not too blowy, plenty of reasons sunbeds and handy bars. The town is big enough for families with a range of restaurants and bars as well as a good butcher and baker. Stunning drive from the airport

Owner's Response: Dear Louise, thank you for your kind review and we really appreciate your feedback. We regret to see that the pool side lighting were not set on time. Our Maintence department already fixed that and ensure all lights are on around 21:00. Your kind comments on our staff being friendly and helpful have been shared. We place great emphasis on customer service and your kind comments will definitely give us even more momentum to provide service that delivers beyond expectations. Once again thank you for your kind feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Yours sincerely, Valia Kokkinou Property Manager

The property was well equipped & efficiently serviced regularily.

  • 3 of 5

The villa has lovely views of the dramatic mountain scenery & limited views of the sea. Any views from the bedrooms are restricted to the countryside and a distant mountain. The villa is adequately secure for your families quality free time. There is plenty of social space and is reasonably private with only a dozen villas in the immediate vicinity. A car is recommended to explore the island but the village is within a 10min walk with adequate provisions for items overlooked or a swift Raki before serving supper from the villas bbq. Unfortunately, games provided within the villa are limited to board or card games where ball games would be welcome.

We enjoyed the beaches in the local vicinity providing an alternative to the pleasant 1.5m pool at the villa. The A/C was adequate to escape to intense heat when required and welcomed to achieve a restful night.

My biggest concern was with the high winds with gusts up to 65km that moved furniture regularly during our stay, prevented us from using the large 1st flr balcony for 10 days and whistled and rattled the shutters preventing light sleepers to a restful snooze. We were unaware that Southern Crete regularily suffers from these seasonal high winds in summer and we needed to escape to the northern coast to find a more tranquil relaxation in the sunshine where we would have ideally been comfortable to stay at our short term villa but forced to find sanctuary from the winds which were powerful enough to lift & smash a heavy glass topped table on our 1st flr balcony. Being at the base of the valley is vulnerable for the exposed & most affected villas but much more acceptable for the acres of olive groves and bamboo wind breakers!

Any return to the villa for our family would have to be weighed up against the potential of similar disruption to our quality time together.

I hope this helps potential renters make an informed decision on the pluses and minus's of the villas location without disappointment.

Kind Regards

The Freemantle Family.

Owner's Response: Dear William, we are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! We are really sorry to hear that the winds during your stay caused this inconvenience to you, but that's an unpredictable weather phenomenon, common in south Crete. We are looking forward to welcome you "home" again! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.

Brilliant villa, fantastic views, wonderful pool - simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well presented with all modern features and came well equipped. We were met on arrival and shown around before opening a complimentry bottle of wine - perfect after a day's travelling! The swimming pool was perfect with a good number of shaded areas to escape the sun if it got to hot. The kitchen/living area was a good size and made for a comfortable stay. The two bathrooms were again a good size. There was a nice dining area outside close the purpose built BBQ area as well as a good sized roof terrace to sit and enjoy a drink watching the sunset over the sea and the amazing scenery. The villa owner also sent a very helpful email with useful information about local attractions and amenities. Likewise, we got a good deal on a hire car to explore the island. Overall we were very pleased with the villa and would definately stay again.

Tolles Haus in ruhiger Lage mit grossem Pool

  • 4 of 5

Positiv: ruhige Lage während unseres Aufenthaltes, geräumiges Haus, zwei Badezimmer, grosser und sauberer Pool, ganzes Haus mit Klimaanlagen ausgestattet, gepflegter Umschwung, Putzdienst in der Wochenmitte, jederzeit verfügbare Ansprechperson, in der Nähe von Einkaufs- und Einkehrmöglichkeiten.

Negativ: Meerblick nur vom Balkon im 1. Stock, Doppelbett in einem der Zimmer relativ klein, Küche mit Ausstattung (Geschirr und Kühlschrank) bei Übernahme in nicht sehr sauberem Zustand, beschädigte Pfannen müssten ausgetauscht werden, Bodenheizung im kleinen Bad liess sich nicht ausschalten.

Entspannte Ferientage

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus können wir (2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder) uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Das Haus ist für die angegebenen sechs Personen ausreichend groß und sowohl im Innen- als auch Außenbereich sehr ansprechend. Hervorzuheben ist die Aussicht von dem Haus, hier entsprechen die Bilder vollends der Wirklichkeit, sowie der (Anfang Oktober schon recht frische) Pool.

Die Umgebung ist landschaftlich reizvoll und die Tavernen der umliegenden Dörfer (Mariou, Mirthios, Asomatos und auch Lefkogia selbst) sind für eine Einkehr uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen).

Die mit Abstand schönste Badebucht in der unmittelbaren Umgebung (ca. 3,5 km und eine sehr schöne Anfahrt) war nach unserem Dafürhalten die Schineria-Bucht. Hier waren einfach die wenigsten Touristen und man konnte auch sehr gut schnorcheln.

Ein besonderes Lob geht an den Hausverwalter Yiannis, der bei unserer Ankunft im Dunkeln und Sturm mit einem Reifenplatten (Hier aufgepasst, die Straßen der unmittelbaren Umgebung sind in einem abenteuerlichen Zustand) sehr behilflich war, indem er beim Koffertransport und dem Kontakt zur Mietwagenfirma sehr behilflich war.

Auch die Zwischendurchreinigungen des Mietobjektes mit Handtuch- und Bettwäschewechsel sind kein Standard und sollte hervorgehoben werden.

So bleiben nur wenige to-dos, die den Aufenthalt nahezu perfekt gemacht hätten: Der Wind an manchen Tagen gehört wohl einfach dazu, hat aber wohl dazu beigetragen, dass die Möbel der Dachterrasse nicht nutzbar waren (Glasplatte des Tisches hat gefehlt). Und die Betätigung des Lichtschalters neben dem Bett in einem Schlafzimmer sorgt zuverlässig für einen Kurzschluss im gesamten Haus. Das sind aber beileibe nur Kleinigkeiten, die unseren durchweg positiven Gesamteindruck nicht getrübt haben.

Wen also auch ein paar stürmische Tage nicht abschrecken, dem sei dieses Haus wärmstens empfohlen.

Car: necessary

Villa Poseidon is located very close to Lefkogia village, on the south coast, where guests can find all the necessities they need such as a taverna and a supermarket in 400 meters walking distance.

Also Plakias is a sea front village, that can be reached within 8 minutes by car and has a sandy and very well organised beach with sun beds, umbrellas, changing rooms, showers, etc. The rocks surrounding the beach are ideal for fishing and snorkelling, as well. The road along the beach is also ideal for walking or cycling. Along the main road of the village there are several supermarkets, bakeries, ATM machines, post office, a doctor’s office, restaurants, tavernas, cafes and beach bars while on the beach there are tamarisk trees, water sports, beach volley courts, snack bars and other shops offer a very wide range of products, including local and traditional goods.

Also the well known beaches of Schinaria, Ammoudaki and Damnoni which are definitely considered as the beauty of the south cost, are close and can be reached within a 7 minutes drive.

Sea waters are warm in July and August, but be prepared to bathe in Saharan-style heat and the ‘meltémi’, the northerly wind which regularly blasts beaches. On the other hand the winds also drive away the mosquitoes and break through that solid wall of summer heat. These breezes are known to locals by individual names, depending on where they come from, how long they stay, and what gifts they bring with them.
