Recently stayed at both villas for week 1 and week 2 in Sept 2013. These villas are good quality homes and beautifully clean. They have lovely views of the sea/sunsets and are both very private with manicured grounds. Both are gated so for those with children you will feel safe. Its a peaceful area and no noise of any kind. Both have televisions and DVD players. Main bedrooms have 5ft firm beds. We did not eat out locally in Plaka so cannot comment on that. Nearby Almyrida has a lovely shallow safe beach and some good places to eat. The owners of the villas live nearby and are lovely people. When you get to the villa put the front door key fob into the slot on the wall for the lights to come on.
On a very small note, remember to take some dish clothes/tea towels with you tho both have dishwashers Research before you go as there is no info at the villa or locally. There is a small shop in Plaka but as you would expect its expensive. There is a small supermarket in Almyrida and there is a big supermarket at Kalives. We would happily return.
For those of you needing car hire, we booked with eurocar and paid cash E300 for two weeks for a medium sized car,no deposit. They were there to meet us at the airport and its a two min drive in a minibus to pick up the car at their small depot that's next to the airport in Chania.
