“Exceptional well equipped 5* villa.”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have just returned from an amazing holiday at this fabulous villa situated on the hill above Istron crete.We were a group of 9 family members[8adults and one 4 yr old grandson].
The villa is amazing,well equipped with everything you could possibly need.It is decorated to a very high standard.The bedrooms are immaculate,each with its own balcony.The views are to die for,looking across the clear blue bay and the town of Istron itself.The pool is out of this world and kept very clean and well maintained by the pool guy[Pablo].Everyone has their own sun lounger with large sunshades if needed.Although it was 38c-40c when we were there,because it is up on the hill ,there is a gentle breeze which keeps you nice and cool around the pool.
There is a very helpful blue folder in the villa with different recommendations for eating out and places to visit ect.Please try some of the tavernas mentioned in the villa guide.We did and they were great.Zygos for example had greek dancing[plate smashing,dancing in a ring of fire ect] .Live music which got even the most reluctant dancers up.Food is lovely eg 2 courses with 3 rounds of drinks each for nine people was 170 euros[£120] and then out they come with a free sweet and free raki.Fantastic.
Crete is lovely and the people are so friendly and family orientated.Everyone has a great time with no mad drunks running around.
The beaches are lovely and clean.The nearest big town is Aginos Nicholas and is superb for shopping and eating out as well.
Finally a big thank you to Rose[manager] and Jill ,who looked after us so well.We had a minor problem on the second day and it was sorted out within 30 minutes by Rose.Jill kept the place looking lovely on her visits to do the laundrey ect.
We have fallen in love with this place and hope to return soon.I would recommend it to anyone wanting a good relaxing care free holiday.I hope they will have us back as we managed to crack a shower head on the last day but once again Rose came to the rescue.Thank you to the Horn family for sharing this delightful place with us.PS if you can try and fly to Heraklion airport[rather than Chania airport] which is only about and hours drive away.

We spent 18 nights and the place is one of the best I have discovered until now for our holidays. The view is amazing and we regreat it as soon as we went back home.
all you need for cooking is available and if you dońt want to cook you have excellent tavernàs just at 5 minutes from the villa.
The pool is perfect for young childrens and also for swimming.
The service offered with the villa is also very good, so thanks to Rose and Barbara for having made our stay as confortable as possible.
For sure we will try to come back again at villa Khami.

What an impressive experience. The views from the terrace and balconies are fabulous. The outside eating area is very relaxing and enjoyable. The interior lay out maintains privacy and each room has it's own character with ample space and style. We absolutely loved staying in villa Khami and would definitely return!!

OK so you have looked at the photo's and are a little put off. Don't be please take my word for it, this villa is fantastic. It is fully equipped so leave your tin opener at home. It is spotless and maintained to a very high standard, the pool is large and clean and again well maintained and the views are breath taking. This is a great base to explore this side of Crete with it's mountains and beautiful coastline. Go to Elounda, Aghios, Krista, Mirtos and Water City. The coast roads are spectacular similar to the Amalfi Coast, the mountain roads are just as amazing with miles of winding road to explore whilst passing through fab scenery. Istron is a small town with a really good beach. The real deal is the people they are brilliant no drunks, no mad Brits, no trouble at all unless you stray to Malia at night that is, that's where they let they Brits out. The people in Crete are amazing and Istron is a fine example of that we found very genuine friendly and welcoming locals everywhere we went. We travelled with a party of 10 people 5 of these were teenagers we all loved every minute of the holiday, it was fantastic. Just one word of warning do not rent your car from Monza the staff are great but the cars OMG reminder of Del Boy, Rodney and 'only fools and horses'
