Grant’s home is fabulous.
Maria is a Crete asset.
Our girls trip was perfect.
The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly want. Beach towels included, big fluffy bath towels and a welcome basket of goodies. The position couldn’t be better, as well as the lovely pool, the sea and two tavernas were on the doorstep. Perfect.
This is a unique villa, with everything you need for a comfortable stay in a special location. All the little touches, very well equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishings make this feel like a home rather than a holiday rental. Swimming from the little beach by the villa was lovely even at the end of May, we saw nobody else on the beach the whole week.
Fantastic location, great house!
Right from the start, the experience was faultless - Grant was very easy to arrange everything with and provides plenty of info and detail before you get there - once we arrived we were welcomed by a beautiful view of the Med...We had a fantastic time at the villa - I shall really miss my morning swim in the amazingly clear sea! The house is great, very spacious, light and airy, well decorated and comes with very comfortable beds (something of a rarity in many of the villas that we have rented in the past, around the Med- it’s nice not having to see a chiropractor when we arrived home),,,A lot of thought has gone into equipping the place and it comes with everything from lie-lows, snorkelling gear to jets in the pool....The location is excellent- with your own’private’ beach, 2 good restaurants within 50m (but not so close to hear them) and one very good restaurant within 500m. The guys at the restaurant are also very helpful and will deliver (walk across to the villa) with calamari etc)....really handy !!! There is also a good supermarket just 2 minutes drive away and the beautiful old town of Chania is just a 35 minute drive away. Falarsana beach is also just 15 minutes away (probably one of the nicest beaches that we have visited)
Being by the sea you also benefit from a refreshing breeze and a lack of Mozzies!
The team that look after you (Maria and Stavros) are also extremely friendly and accommodating and will do anything to help - from arranging sailing trips, diving trips or kayaks delivered to the house).
Hard to think of a way you could have improved the experience- a really great and memorable holiday, I’m sure we will be back....thanks Grant
A little slice of Heaven fit for royalty!!
We were a party of eight, four adults and four teenagers.
From the moment we were picked up at the airport our adventure began. Grant arranged transfers for us through Strata tours, the driver, Iris, was lovely and made our teenagers laugh the whole journey, not any easy task! We saw Iris a few times over our holiday as she was our main driver on our excursions, having lived there for over 30 years, she was a wealth of knowledge.
We were met by Maria at the villa that was the beginning of a lovely holiday relationship. Maria was on hand via phone or email at any time, she knew everything about Crete, having worked in tourism for years, from helping us book the best diving experience to the best place to get Gyros delivered to us when we felt lazy! We cannot praise her and her husband Stavros, who came every few days to water plants and tend to the pool, enough, Stavros even picked us up a bag of coals when we asked where to buy some more after the supermarket had run out.
The Villa – Well, what can we say about Seadream Villa? Wow Wow Wow!! From the moment you set foot into this villa its luxury all the way. I think the best way to describe this beautiful villa is – the privacy of a villa with 5* hotel service. Grant has thought of everything, it lacks nothing.
The rooms are all so spacious with much needed air conditioning. The pool is beautifully set up with little steps and overlooking the marina, nice to watch the fishermen coming back with their catch each evening and if you’re an early riser, like my husband, you can watch them all go out.
The little beach at the back of the villa was a welcome treat if you didn’t want to walk the short distance to the main beach. Mostly private, a few people came to snorkel but never disturbed us, except for one couple that joined us for drinks! The snorkelling is amazing there and we all made full use of it. There are inflatables, table tennis and some games in the garage, which the kids used every day, also some board games and books in the villa to use.
The back room is a delightful view and we often would disappear on our own to sit on the white comfy couch to read listening to the sound of the sea, bliss. I took my laptop to work whilst away and this was a great room to do it in, if only my view at home was like this! We are mostly villa people and as someone previously said, this is by far the best villa ever, booking again!! Thank you Grant, Alexis, Maria & Stavros for a truly wonderful holiday.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING HOUSE - WONDERFUL HOLIDAY
The photos on this site really do NOT do true justice to this gem of a property - it is so very well equipped and much larger than I expected. The location is truly amazing - sitting on the patio looking at your own private beach (think we saw two people access it during our fortnight stay!) and the snorkelling in this bay is wonderful too. We have stayed in villas for our family holidays for over 13 years, and without question this has been my absolute favourite for facilities, location, view....I could go on and on! Grant has quite literally thought of everything (even supplying an electric pump to get those inflatables ready!). All the little extras in the house, including an incredibly generous welcome basket, make you feel like you are in a hotel - then you remember the comfort and privacy of the villa. I genuinely did not want to leave and am confident that we will return at some point in the future. Grant is a great host and was amazingly prompt in every communication we had prior to travelling - thank you :-). Maria and Stavros who take care of the property are also absolute gems.
If you can tear yourself away from your private beach or the great pool...then there are many lovely places to visit within a reasonable drive - Chania is a must; Balos - talk to Maria who can help you with planning a boat trip; Elafonissi beach; the gorges and mountain roads...but as I say, you first have to tear yourself away from this stunning house. Just writing this has made me feel as sad as I did the morning we left....wonderful memories in a wonderful house. Thank you :-)
