“A great property at a beautiful location”

There is a lot to love about this house, starting with the fact that it is decorated like a home and not a rental. That is because it had been a second home for this family until we arrived as their very first renters. There are a lot of personal decorative touches and a full library of books, mostly in Greek.

Every room has a window and balcony and its own AC unit. If you want to close the excellent and practically sound proof windows, each person can control their own environment. There were four of us and we liked the fact that the property has a lot of space for each person to find a quiet corner to read or just relax. My personal favorite, sitting on the front terrace and staring at the open expanse and into the sea. Unbeatable view.

The house is perched up on the side of a mountain and while you are driving there it seems that you are getting away from everything but once you step out on the front terrace and look at the view you realize how magical this location is. In fact, from the house to the coast it takes less than 10 minutes by car and in 15 you are in the town of Rethymno. So for us, this house gave us access to the main highway and seclusion at the same time.

The house has a shallow pool, great for children and to cool off on days away from the beach. There is also a beautiful garden and built-in BBQ grill. It is well equipped throughout, includes wifi and a washing machine. A dish washer would be a good addition some day, but for us it worked out regardless.

Finally, Dora was very helpful, ready to provide anything that was needed and supplied the house with the local specialties, olive oil and raki.

We had a fantastic time there and would easily return some day in the future.
