Well maintained modern property, with lots of follow up care (cleaners, admin etc.)

  • 3 of 5

We booked this due to its location in the south of Crete (having spent a week in the north), and wanted the set up of a villa and access to a pool (this one actually has its own pool). It's proximity to beaches was also attractive. We were well looked after by the staff, and the house was clean and had most things you might want (coffee machine etc.). It's quite a sterile house, the living space is dark even with all the blinds open, and it felt noisy when the kids played. The main reason this was an issue is as it was so windy we actually didn't spend much time outside in the garden or on the terraces, which was a real shame. The garden is relatively sheltered and has lots of greenery, but the flies that came with the wind were really annoying if you were sitting outside. There are fly screens on all the doors, but we still had to go and buy a fly swat and were killing in the region of 50 flies a day before we could sit/eat in peace inside! I presume outside of the windy season (July/Aug?) it all changes and the outside can be enjoyed?

Nevertheless, we had a really great week location wise, and hunted out quite a few not too windy beaches, explored the mountain villages and Minoan sites and spent lots of time being staggered by the scenery within a short distance of the house. For this reason our week in the south was more memorable than that in the north.

A wonderful villa in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous week in the Villa Dafni. We arrived at 4.30am and the owner (George) was there to meet us!! The villa was beautifully clean and the staff came in every day to make sure it stayed that way. The staff were really helpful and organised our airport taxi and hire car for us, even driving us to the local village to pick up the car. The area is perfect if you are looking for a quiet stay in an superb rural location with excellent beaches and villages offering great tavernas providing a huge selection of locally sourced food. Nothing was too much trouble for George and his team who made certain we had a really special stay. We will definitely be going back to stay. I totally recommend this location. Simon Burrow

Beautiful home in a nice area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in the villa. The property is very luxurious and nicely decorated. There is a beautiful view from the garden and the balcony on the top flour towards the sea. The children (7 and 9) had a wonderful time in the swimming pool. There are many places in the shadow or in the sun where you can sit around the house.

George (owner) and Iro (lady at the front desk) are very friendly and helpful people. We really felt welcome. They did everything in their power to make our holiday one to remember in all positive ways. They gave us great tips for things to do in the area and where to eat. Also, the cleaning ladies were very friendly and are doing a great job. We were there in the last week of April 2016. It was quit (nice) but most of the restaurant's en stores were open for business. There are some very nice beaches nearby. We liked Damnoni beach the most (5 minute drive). We also liked the taverns that are located on the same beach. We visit Preveli monastery, Rethimnon and Spili. We liked Plakias for a coffee or a lunch ad had a great diner in Mariou. This villa and this area is certainly a place to come back to in the future and to recommend to our friends and family. We thank George and Iro for their great hospitality.

alles - außer "luxury"

  • 2 of 5

Wir hatten das kleine Haus mit 3 Schlafgelegenheiten.

Das Haus war eine einzige Enttäuschung und hat mit den Bildern im Internet nicht viel zu tun. Im Internet hat man den Eindruck, dass alles hochwertig eingerichtet ist. Tatsächlich ist alles nur vom billigsten. Die Dusche (eine billige Baumarkt "Wellnessdusche") war so marode und eklig, dass wir nur mit Schuhen geduscht haben (s. Fotos). Die Zimmer- und Küchentüren waren alle klebrig und fleckig. Überall auf dem Boden war es schlierig, die Fenster super dreckig. Die Wände sind mit Flecken übersät (u.a. tote Mücken). Mückenschutz gibt es leider nur im Haus der Vermieter (also nicht in unserem). Und Mücken gab es jede Menge..

Wir hatten das große "Glück" die Klärgrube direkt hinter dem Haus zu haben. So hat es im Zimmer unserer Tochter und aus dem Badabfluß immer voll eklig nach faulen Eiern gestunken und wir diese Türen und Fenster immer geschlossen halten mussten. Unter der Spüle in der Küche war es auch super süffig. Der erste Stuhl, auf den sich mein Mann setze, brach zusammen etc. Die Küche war schlecht ausgestattet. Man hat einen sehr großen und einen riesigen Topf (nix für Soße o.ä.) Die Kaffeemaschine ist winzig - wir mussten immer 2x kochen. Zu Beginn gab es nur 6 Mokkatäschen, wir haben uns dann noch 2 ordentliche Kaffeetassen erbeten. Müslischüsseln habe ich dann selbst gekauft, weil ich es leid war um alles im "Luxusappartement" zu bitten. Außerdem fehlten am verrosteten Wäscheständer schon 3 Streben, eine hing davon, sodass ich ebenfalls einen neuen verlangt (und auch erhalten) habe.

Die Lage der Häuser ist sehr schön, mit einen traumhaften Blick auf die Bucht von Plakias. Es ist nur dort oben immer sehr windig, meist stürmig, sodass trotz warmen Wetters drin essen mussten.

Wir haben am Ende dem Vermieter unsere Enttäuschung mitgeteilt. Seine Freundin/Frau rollte genervt mit den Augen. Kein professioneller Umgang. Er meinte, wir hätte es gleich am ersten Tag sagen sollen, dann hätte er uns geholfen eine andere Unterkunft zu finden. Wir bedauern es zutiefst, dass wir das nicht getan haben. Das Appartement, was wir die Woche davor gemietet hatten kostete 1/3 und war einfach top.

Unser Fazit: alles andere als Luxus. Nie wieder

Owner's Response: Firstly, an important note from our side: We have hosted hundreds of families from all around the world in our villas the last 5 years. These guests have written tens of excellent comments for us and our working ethic in various websites on the internet. All the comments, except the one of Kirsti, for our villas on this website have also 5 stars. We understand that it is possible somebody not to like our villas, because the taste is subjective. Therefore, we are keen to receive feedback from our customers and we are trying our best in order to give the absolute holiday experience to all our customers. But Kirsti never informed us about any of the above described issues till the last day of their holidays. As Kirsti is writing above: "Wir haben am Ende dem Vermieter unsere Enttäuschung mitgeteilt.". Practically, the day of the departure when she came to pay the remaining amount of the bill, she informed me about her dislikes and asked for a discount. We kindly responded that it is not fair to ask for a discount in the last minute before your departure, while you stayed in our villa the full duration of your reservation. Normally when a customer has any kind of request or issue, he/she informs us at the beginning of the stay and not when is the time of departure or payment. In regards to the complaints, I have to mention that Kirsti was closing the door to the maid every day and never let her clean the villa during their stay. Again, the cleaning lady was knocking the door of the villa Myrto daily in order to clean as she was she was doing in all the other villas, but they did not let her enter the villa. We accepted the decision of the customer and respected her privacy, but is totally wrong to describe our villa as dirty. Lastly, the guests all these years find the Gasparakis Luxury Villas well equipped and ideal for relaxing holidays close to the beach. Of course, it can happen that a customer may ask for an extra cup, spoon, or something similar during the holidays. We are truly willing to help and solve any problem immediately, if we are informed on time. The comments of all the great majority of the families that we have hosted is the best guarantee!

Superhuis met veel privacy

  • 5 of 5

We werden bij aankomst warm ontvangen door Iro en George, die een heerlijk welkomstpakket voor ons hadden staan. De villa ligt in het rustige dorpje Lefkogia, met supermarkt en een aantal tavernes. Een paar kilometer verder ligt het gezellige badplaatsje Plakias, waar we een aantal keer heerlijk hebben gegeten. Ook in Sellia ligt een fijn restaurantje. De villa zelf heeft alles wat je kunt bedenken nodig te hebben. Een fijne tuin met privé-zwembad; De tuin is goed afgeschermd van de buren, dus een villa met veel privacy. De villa was fris en schoon, en de service van Iro en George was geweldig. Toen we aankwamen en van een tweepersoonsbed twee eenpersoonsbedden wilden hebben was dat binnen tien minuten geregeld: geen enkel probleem. Als er iets was dan konden we bij Iro en George terecht (bijvoorbeeld toen onze huurauto een lekke band had). Kortom, een plek om terug te komen! En zeker een aanrader voor mensen die van rust en ruimte houden (hadden we alle prachtige strandjes in de buurt al genoemd?).

Traumhaft

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine wunderbare Woche in der Villa Armonia. Die Anlage besteht aus mehreren Villen, alle in ähnlicher Bauweise. Die von uns bewohnte Villa Armonia steht in erster Reihe mit einem traumhaften Blick bis zum Meer nach Plakias. Das Haus ist hervorragend ausgestattet und sehr geschmackvoll und modern eingerichtet. Im ersten Stock findet man ein Schlafzimmer und eine sich anschließende Terrrasse mit Teakmöbeln sowie das Badezimmer. Im Erdgeschoss ein weiteres Schlafzimmer, eine separate Toilette sowie ein geräumiges Wohnzimmer mit offener Küche und einem Essplatz und eine weitere Terasse mit Teakmöbeln. Im Garten stehen Sonnenschirme und Liegen um den privaten Pool. Die Bilder im Internet halten exakt das, was sie versprechen. Die Begrüßung durch George war sehr freundlich und informativ, insbesondere die Tipps für Ausflüge, schöne Strände und gute Tavernen waren spitze. Das Haus, der Garten und der Pool waren top gepflegt. Handtücher für Bad und Pool gab es ihm Rahmen der Hausreinigung alle zwei Tage neu. Für uns war die Villa Armonia eine traumhafte Unterkunft in idealer Lage. Wer Individualität und Ruhe zu schätzen weiß und auch auf Luxus nicht verzichten möchte, kann hier einen wunderbaren Urlaub verbringen. Ein Mietwagen ist unbedingt nötig.

Wir reisen seit vielen Jahren nach Kreta und können sagen, dass die Gegend um Plakias für uns eine der Schönsten der Insel ist. Viele kleine Strände, lohnende Ausflugsziele und touristisch noch nicht überlaufen. Wissen sollte man, dass es in der Gegend oft sehr, sehr windig ist.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen sicher wieder.
