We stayed with family in the Almyrida Villa and it was fabulous! The house was beautiful inside and out. We had a pool over looking the ocean, that was truly gorgeous! The house was walking distance from the sleepy beach town which was really nice. The owner was so sweet and it was great to have maid service every day!... More

The villa was lovely. Walking distance to town. The restaurants serve only freshly caught fish and local tomatoes, and other fresh vegatables. Local wine is also recommended. The peopleof Crete are warm and inviting. The old city of Chania should not be missed. This part of Crete is far from the madding world!!!

t is sheer bliss to stay at Anemos. You can see from the photos how beautiful the villa is but in reality it is just absolutely stunning. Great location because of the sea in front of you and the mountains to the left. It is just perfect to look out with the infinity pool and not be able to see... More

We stayed in the Villa Anemos for a week in June 2001. This was our first visit to Crete and first villa holiday (now our kids are older a pool seemed like a relaxing proposition for everyone!). The villas looked amazing from the website and we weren't disappointed when we arrived...the views really are breathtaking. Katerina gave us a warm... More

It's even better than the pictures on the website! In fact the best ever modern villa I've stayed in. This is a labour of love by the owners, elegant and spacious. Attention to every detail makes it the perfect place to relax, so much so that we spent almost every evening in. You would think this was a villa attached... More

We stayed at the Almyra Residence for seven nights in September 2010. It is located on a beautiful hill overlooking the Aegean Sea. Our party consisted of us (the parents) and our two grown children and their spouses. The villa had three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The beds and pillows were super comfortable. All three bathrooms were equipped with the... More

Our family was looking for a nice get away for a week by the sea not spending an arm and a leg... WOW did we find it! New lovely 3 bedroom villa with a killer view. 5 minute walk to the beach and just a couple more minutes to the quiet charming village nearby. Great location to other towns and... More

My wife and 2 children visited the gorgeous Villa Ammos 2 weeks ago. Having seen the pictures it looked perfect but would the reality notch up to it. You bet! Breathtaking views of the sea over the pool with the mountains to the left framing it beautifully. Katerina really has put such love and thought into these villas I really... More

For our vacation to Crete we searched exhaustively for that "perfect property", and we found it with SK Place. Their website does not embellish in any way, and we were suprised to find the villa actually exceeded our admittedly high expectations. The Villa is a very unique rental property in Crete...it is literally steps to a fantastic family beach and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
SK PLACE is a luxury development of three very spacious independent Villas overlooking the sea on the edge of the pretty fishing village of Almyrida with breathtaking views across the Aegean towards Souda Bay and magnificent panoramic views of the White Mountains. Each villa reflects a different architectural approach with either modern (Almyra), island style (Ammos) or traditional Cretan (Anemos) characteristics. The stylish interior décor combines simple elegance with subtle accents of comfort and luxury. Enjoy the most wonderful restful sleep in superior quality Swedish beds from “Dux,” relax on sumptuous sofas or dine out under the stars and have peace of mind with easy to use electronic control systems for satellite TV, music and air conditioning. The interior spaces flow seamlessly to the outdoor areas through the extensive use of glass, allowing the spectacular scenery to be embraced from inside or out. Whilst the lush colourful gardens of bougainvillea, citrus trees, laurels, jasmine and herbs diffuse their irresistible perfumes, be transported into the abyss of endless blue from your swimming pool overlooking the sea and beyond to where the horizon meets the sky. From the intimate atmosphere to the luxurious surroundings brimming with character and charm, we have thought of everything to make your stay unforgettable. ... more   less
