Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Logan,

first of all, thank you for your mail.

We had a wonderful stay in Crete and everyday perfect weather. When we arrived we were astonished of the amazing view of the

ocean. The Villa itself looked beautiful and when we entered we were surprised by the the spacious living room/dining area.

The kitchen was very modern and we could find all devices for cooking etc. which was very useful. We had the pleasure to

have breakfast outside every morning and enjoyed the view of the ocean which was magical.

The Villa was very clean just like the pool area. We really enjoyed the area of Kefalas and loved the houses and people

there.

Furthermore, we were really pleased how well the villa was equipped. Both bathrooms looked also very modern.

However, that was certainly not our last stay at your Villa and in Crete. We had the most wonderful time. Thanks again and

all the best.

Lovely peaceful holiday

  • 3 of 5

It was a nice villa accommodation for a week stay. The village of Kefelas was very quiet only a shop, restaurant and bar but that is all we needed. It was very peaceful at the villa and pretty area. Sunbathing you can hear the birds and sheep bells next door was very relaxing and quiet. The views from the villa were lovely over the sea. My son who is only 1 found the unheated pool too cold at first but got used to it by the end! We had a lovely time in our own pool which we’ve never had before. It was the perfect size villa for a small family of 3. The only criticism I would say would be the villa needs a little updating with the single beds in the guest room not too comfortable to sleep on. Also, the sofas are basic and not so comfortable. We didn’t use the bbq but all the kitchen equipment for self catering was great. The balcony views were lovely. The only other criticism would be the villa needs a little care. Maybe we just have very high standards! I would give it a 3 star but the views and own pool make it better. The village is walkable when we found out how to get their on the meandering small streets! You can turn left at the top of the street and down the hill and around then turn right onto the main road which takes you by the restaurant. The food their is very good! The first night we arrived they had Greek musicians and we had such a lovely time. Maddies bar is fun too with big garden and playground next door. My son loved chasing the stray cats! Trips to Rethymno well worth it very pretty fortress and harbour is lovely with restaurants and shops! Also, we went to Almyrida and Georgiopolis beaches which were a bit busier towns. Vamos is a sleepy town nearby with more shops and tavernas. Vamos has the old village buildings there too. Crete is beautiful! This villa gives you what you need for a family stay!

Lovely holiday in winter

  • 4 of 5

We have enjoyed our stay in the villa. We were satisfied with the price-quality ratio. We love the Apokoronas area and have been there already more often.

The route instructions were fine and the key-box easy to use; there was enough parkingplace. The house was properly cleaned. We were surprised that the swimming pool was filled! The swimming pool was cleaned regularly by a friendly boy. The tv and household appliances all worked well

The view over the sea was wonderful, from the bedrooms you could see the sunrise.

Because we were there in February, it was pretty cold and windy outside. Despite the temperature of the shower was sufficient. If the sun was shining, we could even sit outside . During the winter there are -of course- less shops and restaurants open, but it was enough for us.

We had two points for some improvement (heating/furniture); the owner was very customer oriented, and has reported us to improve these points.

Beautiful view, spacious Villa, super great place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect overall experience staying here! We initially booked 4 nights but ended up staying for 6. We were lucky enough that Pon was on Crete during our visit and staying in the Villa next door and could help us out with whatever questions we had from the very start. Pon was genuinely very friendly and incredibly accommodating to everything we asked for and needed!

The town of Kefalas is very small but relaxing. We loved it there. We spent our down time beside the pool which was perfect. Our favourite beach nearby was georgiopolis - about 15 minute drive away. We also did day trips to Rethymno and Kalives which had very nice beaches too! Lots to see in Rethymno! Castle and old town were highlights for sure! We did a day trip to the south coast which was surprisingly quick and easy from this location - only about an hour drive to Hora Sfakion then a quick ferry to loutro... And the drive was super beautiful!! We also stopped in at Frangokastello while on the south. The castle and beaches were amazing!! Chania is very close by too but we didn't have time to check it out during our stay. Hopefully next time!

I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing spot that's also fairly close to a lot of interesting towns and places. Thanks again Pon!

Absolutely stunning views & villa. Ultimate escape.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is unlike anywhere I have ever stayed before, and I have stayed in lots of Air B&Bs. The views...Oh. My. God. Absolutely amazing, sometimes it's hard to believe that you're actually seeing what you are seeing it is so stunning. The peaceful waterfall from the infinity pool is so relaxing and you don't hear hustle and bustle as there's no cars that will drive past the villa ever because of the designated parking.

The villa is clean and the owner is an amazing amazing person. He helped me out at 10pm the night before when I was in a pinch. I am forever grateful for that. He responded immediately to ever question I had and would text or email just to check in because he knew I was traveling alone. He even answered close to 1am when the power went out and I had a mild anxiety attack! (Power came back on within 5 minutes and I assume high winds knocked it out). He is a very gracious person & host.

The villa is absolutely comfortable, the balcony off the bedrooms is a great spot for morning coffee with an INCREDIBLE view. The decor is very minimalism which I love because it doesn't clutter the mind and is very clean yet feels like home.

There's a washer which was nice to do laundry before leaving, and a very update kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal!

The little town is quite quaint and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Although you feel extremely remote and away from it all, it's not a far drive at all to restaurants, beaches and other attractions.

This is the perfect villa to relax, unwind, do yoga by the pool and you'll probably not even turn the television on, I didn't. Lots of friendly cats will stop by to say hello also!

I am a femal that was traveling along and felt extremely extremely safe staying in the villa.

Perfect for families or for singles/couples.

You won't regret renting Pon's villa and I hope to be back in the future!

A lovely Villa in a stunning location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a great holiday in the villa. Well kept property with a lovely garden and pool. Lots of walking opportunities and good beaches a short drive away. Visit the Tourist Office in Vamos for information and booklets about walks.

Our own little Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Pon's villa. If anything I have to say it was better than last year and that was a fabulous holiday.

What's really important to me when I go on holiday, is tranquility, scenery good food and wine, being at the villa provides it all.

The villa is everything I want on holiday, the facilities are excellent, I do love not coming home with loads of washing plus the fact it dries in no time!

We had a couple if minor issues whilst we were there but Pon and his team sorted them with no fuss and very fast, excellent service.

The best thing about this villa is the location, the silence, the peace, the views are wonderful. The area has everything you need, counting down to our next visit!
