The house is not cramped it might have felt that way since you were 4 persons, two of which were young children. I would like to remind you that I proposed the bigger house Persephone for just 20 euros/day so you could be more comfortable but you refused it. the house is not dusty and you didn't inform our cleaning lady, who did mid cleaning so to be more careful. there is only one plug not fitted well into the wall and I imagine you could have understood that it is difficult to fit power outlets into a stone wall. As for the power strips accessible to kids it is the first time in my 15 years of operation that I hear such complain. Yes we do have a lot of cords to make life easy for our clients. Why didn't you inform us of the TV since you stayed for 6 nights and I was in contact with you. It is true that the TV had a problem, due to plants growing around the plate (we discovered with our next guest and fixed it immediately). I was just wondering, from all the beauty around as concerns the house and the rich environment you only spotted the power outlets and the low lighting .... I am really sorry.

Smaragda House is a beautifully renovated Cretan stone house that is wonderfully furnished and decorated. It has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay and was spotless. The view from the rooftop patio is incredible and also a good view from the downstairs patio where we enjoyed our meals. There is a very informative booklet in the house that provides detailed information about nearby beaches, sights to see, restaurants and tavernas. The owner was most helpful in answering our questions about the history of the village. We totally loved our stay and the many places to visit and excellent beaches.

A unique place for those who value the opportunity to spend time in peace, tranquility and even isolation from the hustle and bustle of modern life, at the same time not too far from this world and civilization. The essence of the Mediterranean climate and surroundings at the meeting point of the mountains and the sea. A stone house providing a comfortable stay for 2 - 6 guests in the setting of a traditional Greek village, whose history dates back to Byzantium or beyond. Good, fresh, healthy food available. Endless walking or hiking routes among olive groves or wild mountain landscapes. Typical Cretan beaches within 15-20 minutes by car on a good mountain road. I feel sorry to leave...

Away from the touristic routes, Anatoli is a small, calm village, full of history. Unlike most of Cretan villages, Anatoli has preserved its architecture: stone houses, many of which are renovated, small paths and picturesque churches. Pasiphae is a spacious double floored house in the center of the village, renovated with care and love. It can easily accommodate 8 people and it has all the amenities one might need. The main advantage of the house is its terraces, allowing for amazing views towards the sea all day long. The owners have been very helpful and all in all it's been a memorable stay. We'll definitely go back!

Beautiful house even more stunning than on the photos. Great layout, well equipped in an amazing setting. If you like quaint villages and peace : Pasiphae house is for you! You host will make sure that you have a good stay and will advise you on places to see etc. Hence our first visit to Crete was perfect. Thank you Ioanna!
