“Amazing villa with a lovely owner and managed by a great guy kostas”
Reviewed May 11, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for 1 week as a family of 12, there was more than enough room for everyone, all of the rooms were very spacious and comfortable and tastefully decorated, the villa is quite spectacular and sits in a lovely spot with breathtaking views. We didn't want for anything, an amazing pool which was huge, a lovely hot tub, a great bbq area for evening dining, a games room, a small sauna, basketball court as well as a well equipped kitchen with everything you could need, plenty of seating areas including the lounge and various verandas. The owner Mr Giakoumakis is a really nice man and made sure we had everything we needed on arrival and he even came to see us leave, so thank you to you Mr Giakoumakis. The villa is also managed by a great guy called kostas who has an assistant called Sophia who both came to our aid one day when our children became ill, we called there office because it was Easter holiday and asked them to get a doctor! They called me back within 5 minutes and sent a doctor who arrived 20 minutes later to look at my children, the way they dealt with this was very quick and efficient and we can't thank them enough for the speed they dealt with this, so we would like to say a big thank you to kostas and Sophia. All in all I think you would find it hard to rent a villa as good as this one it had everything you could want including a really nice owner and managed by a really professional team with kostas and Sophia. I would not hesitate to book this amazing villa again as it was perfect in every way, all of our family really enjoyed themselves and we are all we were still there on the beautiful island of Crete.

“Beautiful Cretan holiday rental - and the perfect pool!”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We travelled in a large group ranging in age from 1 to mid 60's and the house was perfect for every member of our family.

Great facilities, lots of different places to eat in the house, a good standard of equipment throughout and that amazing pool - not ideal for swimmers who are not confident, owing to the 3m depth, but fine for young children with arm bands and/or who can swim.

The location offer beautiful sunrise and sunset views over the north coast of Crete and is a very good starting point for many journeys across the island thanks to the central location of Rethymno.

The owner gave us great recommendations for restaurants and supermarkets and other facilities are very close by. If you visit Rethymno, make sure not to miss Avli restaurant, which was a real treat - and there are of course loads of other good options, too!

The local beach is great fun with great wave jumping opportunities for younger kids, unlike some of the calmer coves elsewhere on the north coast and/or on the south.

“Fantastic week away!”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We recently spent a week at this first class villa! The owner Mr Giakoumakis was unbelievably helpful even taking my husband out on his motorbike to show him the local restaurants & shops! We were a party of 10 with 4 teenagers who thoroughly enjoyed the well equipped games area & the large pool. The kitchen is very well equipped we all particularly loved the chilled water dispenser!!! The villa is spotless thanks to the lovely lady that visited us daily. We should also mention the great bbq area which is set slight away from the house but is fully equipped we spent two lovely evening there cooking meat bought at the local butchers! We also took advantage of a day trip on the beautiful boat on offer. We were picked up by Mr Giakoumakis wife & son & taken to the harbour where the boat was all set up & ready for us. It was a truly memorable day for all the family! Mr Giakoumakis was always on hand to answer any question & made us feel truly welcome & at home. Thanks must also go to Kostas who organised our booking & kept in touch before during & after our holiday. We would definitely recommend this villa & Crete is beautiful! Thank you!

“Family Heaven”
Reviewed June 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We booked the villa for a week for a family holiday (6 adults & 3 children) and it was perfect. The villa is modern and very spacious and comfortably accommodated us with room to spare. The internal arrangements also meant that we were not on top of each other and we had our own private areas. The kitchen is very well appointed and eating together was a big part of each day. Our favourite eating place was the side terrace next to the kitchen. However, there is also a separate covered BBQ area in the garden which was wonderful for evening meals. All the bedrooms are generous, very comfortable and there are plenty of bathrooms and toilets, both ensuite and separate. Outside is stunning. The large (and deep) swimming pool is just wonderful and we spent most of our time in it! Beyond are the most wonderful landscaped grounds with play and secret relaxing areas. The walled grounds are private, secure and secluded with no-one overlooking. The villa is ideally located in a very quiet area just above Rethymnon with a specular view out to sea. Good shops and tavernas are only minutes away. The beach is also only a few minutes drive, or cycle, away. The owner greeted us on arrival and was very helpful giving suggestions on things to do, places to go and where to eat. The villa is also kept immaculately clean and tidy by Georgia who visited daily. It would be hard to find a better place for a family or large group holiday.

“Wonderful villa in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed October 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed for a week in this wonderful villa with 12 adults and one 4-year old. The villa was as beautiful as the pictures promised. There was plenty of living space for everybody. The outdoor space and swimming pool were fantastic with a beautiful view over Rethymno and sea. The location was quiet but the villa is close to shops and restaurants and the old town of Rethymno but it’s up the hill so a car is needed. The owner of the villa was super friendly and very helpful and very responsive to questions. He also gave us some very good suggestions for stores and restaurants. We had a fabulous time and would love to stay here again.

“Absolutely fantastic stay with great and very caring landlord”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We recommend most heartily, the spacious & luxurious Villa, that Mr. Giakoumakis Vasilis, let us enjoy during our holiday in Crete. The entire house is well ventilated & very comfortable for 5 families, we were a large group, including a baby, for whom a special bed was made available and a high chair. The villa was well stacked with every convenience & facility we required. The swimming pool with turquoise blue water, was clean & our main delight. The bar-bbq was a facility that we used and found very enjoyable and Mr Giakoumakis was always around to assist, advise and even take care of for us. There was so much space for the children to run around & play & the view of the entire area was wonderful, the blue sea in the distance & the well kept garden with lots of fruit trees & vegetables as well. It was a home away from home & a virtual paradise to enjoy for a short time.
