OK but needs to be looked at as some of the facilities are broken.

  • 2 of 5

The property in Nice and spacious downstairs but two of the bedrooms are small and wardrobe space is limited with no dressing tables. Three bathroom basin are in need of repair and there is no way of holding the shower heads to the walls to shower with. There is a ant and rodent problem in the kitchen plus there was a collection of cats roaming around the property.

The property was not as advertised, as a car was definitely needed, not as advertised a car free holiday.

Owner's Response: Dear Robin, Thank you very much for your candid review of your recent stay at our Villa. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each and every stay. I greatly appreciate your comments about aspects of the bathroom that need updating. It is a pleasure to announce that we have already add holders for the shower heads. However, please allow us to also pass you some further feedback on your comments. Regarding the lack of wardrobe space, please kindly note that all bedrooms are equipped with wardrobes and the villa also features a 25m2 closet/dressing room. The owner of the villa was pleased to assist you with the ants under the sink, which incident was due to the fact that garbage remains where left there. Please rest assure that our guests' safety and security is one of our main concerns. Additionally she was always at your disposal, making her best to provide anything you would need such as extra umbrellas and homemade cooked meal. As far as the location of the villa, we are really sorry to hear that you did not find it convenient enough, as our previous guests have made very positive comments on the privileged location of it, as indeed shopping facilities and beach can be found no more than 15 minutes on foot. Furthermore, please allow us to express the owners' surprise concerning your feedback, as she received from you at your departure great comments and a bottle of wine accompanied with a card and some further positive comments thanking her and letting her now how much you enjoyed your stay! Once again thank you very much for your feedback. Looking forward to seeing you again and we hope you come back "home" soon. Best regards, ThinkVilla Team.

Fantastic property, lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 of us staying at Casa Di Ilianna ranging in ages from 5 to 70, and we all had a great time. Ilianna was always on hand to assist however she could and the property was well appointed inside and out.

It's a 10 minute walk to the bakery and another 10 minutes to the beach. If you want to walk into Rethymno old town and harbour, which is definitely worth a visit, it takes about 45 minutes. Therefore a car is not necessary, but is recommended if you want to get out and about.

This was our first time in Crete and we'd definitely consider staying at Casa Di Ilianna again.
