“Wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed the month of May 2014 and had a wonderful time. The house is lovely. When we first arrived and wandered thru the lanes leading to the house we wondered what we had gotten into but when the gates to the courtyard and house opened up we were thrilled. Georgia is very helpful with advice of where to shop, things to see and places to go. The house served as our base to travel and explore Crete. You will need to rent a car in order to get anywhere. Check into car rentals carefully as there are many options to rent from. If you need an automatic transmission make sure to specify. We probably ate out at local tavernas half of the time and bought groceries at the local INKA supermarket for the other half. Prices at tavernas are very reasonable and you can linger as long as you want. Service is very casual (laid back and slow) but then that is what holidays are about. Almost everywhere we stopped ,even if it was for just a glass of wine , they bring out a small snack for you.
Final tips about the house. It is in the middle of an old Greek neighbourhood and you cannot park right at the house. There are dogs in the neighbourhood and they do bark at night. The washing machine is a small european type which works well but takes a couple of hours to run. You dry your clothes on a rack so make sure to plan laundry accordingly .
It was a great place to stay and we're sad to lock the door and walk away on the last day.

“Everything better than expected - great house, location, host”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at the Private Stone house for 6 nights including my son, daughter-in-law and 7 month old baby. The house and location were exactly what we wanted - a villa in a small village that provided a "non-touristy" Greek experience. (We didn't want to feel like we were at a US sterile hotel.) The house had lots of character and provided adequate common room, which we needed with the baby and the fact that some of us had to spread out to do work on line. The pool are was perfect for lounging while others were working. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom plus one downstairs making the house really good for privacy. Whlie the house and view were very "Greek village", the bathrooms and kitchen are modern and clean which was important to me. Everything from bedding to A/C was better than expected and comfortable. Georgia was absolutely the most gracious hostess, she made a huge difference including helping us out with a transportation problem. (Love you, Georgia!) The village was also just right for us.. enough great tavernas and shopping while still being a quaint village experience. ( We had spent a couple of nights in Chania so already had the more intense nightlife and shopping available there). Kolymbari is close to the beaches cited as some of the best. All the beaches were very impressive but I personally loved Falassarna the best. Less crowded, easy to get to, great waves. just gorgeous. Would absolutely recommend and return.

“Wonderful vacation home in Kolymbari”

This house itself is highly recommendable. It is nicely situated in the old part of the village without any car traffic. However the genuinely warm welcome of Georgia who is a wonderful host providing valuable tips for excursions made this vacation really specially. Thank you!
