About The Owner

My name is Stelios Katsanis. I live in Rethymno in the small island of Crete, one of the most beautiful islands. I love helping other people explore our island and this house has given to me the perfect opportunity. I will be next to my guests before and during their holidays, hoping for new friends. I like my guests to see my beautiful island through my eyes, discover the traditions and live for some days as local people. I would like to help you live the experience in Crete.

Let me be your host and let's start preparing your trip.

Gorgeous modern villa in a lively village

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this villa - it's decorated to a really high standard with plenty of space and good sized bedrooms. We were 6 adults and there was plenty of space in and around the villa.

The pool and terrace area is also lovely and has a built in barbecue.

You do need a car for this villa, as the beach is a steep walk away - but the village has 2 good restaurants and a café all very close by. There's plenty of room for parking and you aren't overlooked at all.

The beach is 5 mins drive away - there's a big Lidl about 15 mins drive away and Rethymno is very easy to reach. We also had lovely days out in Knosos and at Lake Kournas.

We had a great time here and I would definitely recommend it.

A beautifully presented villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed. In Villas Sandy and Evi as a party of 12, (7 adults and 5 teenagers) for 10 days in August. The villas and grounds are beautifully presented - brand new and fully equipped with everything you need. We loved the pool, the table tennis and the vegetable/herb garden. A two minute walk away are 3 very different but good places to eat and drink. We loved taverna Pilou and the Romeo and Juliet restaurant. The owners and staff in both places were very friendly and helpful. The Greek night at Pilou is well worth going to! There is a beach and supermarket just 5 minutes drive or a 20 minute walk away. A slightly longer drive of ten minutes take you to more shops and beaches.

Stelios is a very attentive host and met us in the villa on arrival and arranged our transfer from and to the airport.

We didn’t explore the Island except to go to the beach and to Rethymnon, which is well worth a visit. We were happy in Asteri, the villa and its surrounds.

Villas Sandy and Evi are two beautiful and well equipped properties, in a small friendly village: a perfect venue for a quiet holiday.

Stunning 3 and 2 bedroom Villa's.

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of both Villa's was amazing, friendly welcoming family left us unexpected essentials. Villa Evy and Villa Sandy were incredible spacious and well equipped. Pool and barbecue area was again perfect sunbeds and parasols for 8 people all look as good a new. Veranda area of the lounge so comfortable also all windows have mosquito shields and black out shutters. Overall if I could give it 10 stars I would. Perfect from start to finish.

Thanks again to Stelious and Maria for their hospitality and welcoming us to their Villa's.

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience, I had never been to Greece before and I wanted to stay on one of the islands and I chose Crete because it had everything,beaches, mountain trails, nightlife in the cities,ruins for the scholar , amazing food for the foodie and a growing wine industry. The Chania wine tour is a must, as is exploring ancient monasteries and small villages. Asteri was the perfect place for us. The House was well appointed and had luscious views from the upstairs bedrooms. Stelios was extremely responsive to our needs and was so kind and welcoming that I have no difficulty recommending a stay, a retreat, a family gathering, reunion or vacation stay at this property. The people who managed it and the people of Asteri were very welcoming. We were so sorry to leave and hope to return again, Rhethynon was the nearest city15-20 minutes away both Chania airport and Heraklion were about an hour. The flight to Athens took about 50 minutes. I would strongly recommend a car to get around. My guest came from Hawaii, California,Michigan, Boston and New York, first time travelers and active ones they all said this was the most memorable and gave kudos

Very impressive, high quality villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at both Sandy and Evi villas from the end of May. We were very impressed with all aspects, not only the quality of the accommodation but also the friendliness of the owners George and Stelios. The villas also have a great pool, a table tennis area,an outside kids play area, and vegetable and herb garden. The owners were very helpful from the beginning of the booking ensuring we had all we needed before confirming the booking. They met us on arrival and showed us around the villas and explained everything. They provided many extras such as baby cots, high chairs, some bottles of wine, water, jam, bread, cakes and even charcoal for the BBQ! We also had a small Raki each on arrival. The charcoal was even topped up halfway through the week...something we had not expected.

We had a small incident one evening whereby we had locked the keys inside the villa. We called late that evening to ask if they could help us and it took just 20 minutes for George to arrive and let us in...This was VERY impressive.

In summary, this is a great villa/s in a great village location and supported by great owners. I would recommend this to anybody.

Thanks for a great time George and Stelios.
