“Immaculately presented very comfortable villa. Private position in an olive grove.”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Near to lovely beaches and mountains. Not far from shops and the village of Kolymbari and with easy access to the main road to Chiania. The pool and villa are maintained to the highest standard. And the owners are lovely People! The fresh vegetables from the garden were a nice touch. It was also great that the pool was cleaned and the linen,towels replaced every 3 days! Fantastic because you felt that you were really being looked after! Our friends were very envious after seeing the photos. We LOVED ❤️ the place and want to go back ASAP!

“Perfect week away at Villa Veni”
Reviewed July 11, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have just arrived back from a week at Villa Veni and genuinely did not want to leave! Crete is a place we love and try to visit every year and yet again it didn't let us down. The villa is an easy drive from Chania airport and is set in stunning countryside with a very private outlook. We were expecting a beautiful villa from the pictures/website and it actually exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival you could tell the how much love and attention to detail George and his wife Mary Ellen have put into the villa, it is stunning. The villa is in such perfect condition with everything you could possibly need - I think the fact that this was built as a home rather than just a rental property makes all the difference as things like the kitchen are so well equipped and it has been finished to a very high standard. George the owner was waiting for us when we arrived with the food/drinks we had pre-ordered and showed us around the villa etc, they even met up with us for dinner in Chania Town and took us to a beautiful restaurant which we really enjoyed and appreciated they were fantastic company and great hosts.
In terms of the location of the villa it was ideal for us, you are only a 5-10 minute drive to Kolymbari where there is an excellent butcher, patisserie, supermarket and choice of places to eat. We had a fantastic meal in Diktina and would recommend it to anyone. It is also worth noting that there is taxi firm in Kolymbari, we only noticed on the last night, had we have known earlier we would definitely have booked a taxi when we went into town for a meal rather than taking the car.
We can't wait to go back, it was just what we needed and exceeded our expectations in every way. This is the second booking I have made through Kostas at Etouri/Homeaway and his service was excellent yet again, very professional, well organised and keeps in touch every step of the way from the enquiry/booking stage to the end of your holiday. We booked a car from a company recommended by Kostas (Arkadi) and they were great too. Thank you George and Mary Ellen for letting us stay in your wonderful home and being such great hosts and Kostas and Sophia for your great customer service.

On arrival we was met by george and mary, they showed us the villa we was blown away , it was amazing!i couldnt believe my eyes, it was evening but still it was so beautiful! The pool size was perfect, mary told us we was welcome to pick the fresh tomatoes and oranges off from the trees, the kitchen and sitting room and bedrooms was immaculate! Before hand i had told kostas the agent to arrange groceries and a birthday cake on arrival as it was my sisters birthday, george and his wife had arranged this and met our dietry requirements which i was overwhelmed with! The next morning i had woken to a view that i cant describe in words ! To see the sun shining over the swimming pool and the view of the mountains was breath taking, i woke and all the family got straight into the pool. Later in the day we headed into chania town, it was an amazing spot with strips of restaurants and gift shops and icecream parlours. We spent hours wondering the strip and as we got hungry we decided on a seafood place called pallazzo it was a hidden gem , we dined here twice the food was out of this world. Everytime wr came back to the villa it was a delight to park up and run inside and get in the pool or lounge around! I just want to say a huge thank you to kostas the villa agent he was the best! So helpful and effecient and filled all our requirments and so highly reccomended and george and mary for building this piece of paradise! I cant wait to come back ! Only downfall one week is not enough! Im so bessotted by greece and its beauty i want to live here! Also pics on site does not do the villa justice ! Havent got pics to upload as u was too busy enjoying the time didnt have my phone glued to me :)

“Tranquil, immaculate - a real retreat!”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The owners have created a fantastic haven for guests. The villa is private, no immediate neighbours, surrounded by lovely olive groves. It is however convenient for to make the most of the fabulous beaches of the northern peninsula and is a short drive from shops and restaurants etc, We enjoyed the peace. The villa is well-appointed is super clean and modern as is the pool and garden. We stayed with 20 something children and this worked weill.

The owners were extremely helpful and hospitable! Thanks again!

“Beautiful and stylish, a stunning quiet location, close to local ammenities”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Villa Veni, is a simply stunning holiday destination built in traditional style but with all modern conveniences. The well appointed interior is comfortable and equipped with everything we needed for a very successful holiday. Externally the pool an gardens were immaculate. Comfy loungers and shaded areas offer spectacular views to the mountains across olive strew countryside.
The owners provided a personal warm welcome on arrival, and offered us a complimentary selection of goodies to commence our stay, fresh herbs and tomatoes were available for us to pick from and complimented many a meal. The whole villa was spotless and the discrete scheduled house keeping visits at appointed times allowed us to enjoy the local area without interruption. 10/10

WOW !!!!
Villa Veni is the most wonderful place to spend your holiday, we stayed for 7 days ( not enough ) From the time you make contact to the time you arrive all is taken care off very professionally right down to having groceries of your choice delivered to the villa ( including delightful organic wine and ice cold local beer !!! ) We were met at the villa by George and his son, lovely people and very helpfull. The villa itself is decorated and furnished with a very personal touch and great taste,extremely well equipped kitchen. basically all you need is provided, the first floor open plan bedroom is fab. Some will say the bathroom is small for the villa, I say get outside ( the owner is aware and is going to address this issue ) The grounds, the pool is probably one of the nicest pool I have ever come across in the villas I have rented over the years, perfect depth and spotless. the gardens are immaculate including the wonderful herb garden with fresh tomatoes when you require. Unspoilt uncrowded beaches are ten minutes drive, five minute drive to very friendly tavernas. On the last night George and his wife Marie Ellen invited us out for supper, a warm engaging couple who made us feel very relaxed ( fab evening ) All in all this is definitely the place to visit, lovely landscape, great beaches, good food, perfect hosts and lovely people. We will be back.....

“An oasis of peace and calm in luxury comfort”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well this place turned out to be even better than the photos suggest! Our flight was delayed but George and his son were there to meet us at the villa and show us around. They left us some lovely items in the welcome basket, plus the option of picking strawberries, plums and tomatoes from their garden (which we did, nearly every day!) The house itself is immaculate, all you could want and it felt much more like a home than the average holiday rental. The outside space was a winner too for us, the pool was the best we have ever had in a villa, plus comfy sunbeds and an umbrella that George bought especially as we mentioned having some shade - another example of the personal touch that made this holiday so special. We even had frequent visits from half a dozen swallows, dipping into the pool in the evening as the sun went down. We were taken out to dinner by George and MaryElen - so kind and generous and such good company too! Nearby Kolymbari has lovely restaurants, Kissamos has a lovely beach and the rest of Crete we managed to see in a week was really beautiful - wish I was there now!
