Nice location, a bit noisy from dogs in the neighbourhood, just between Chania and Heraklion. Mainroad is nearby.
Nearly every day cleaning of the house and the pool. Four large bedrooms with their own bathroom and a nice equipped kitchen. Outside a great place for a BBQ.
The living-room is a bit smal for sitting with 8 or 10 persons, but normally you live outside

“Excellent holiday villa, our stay was the best!”

We stayed at Villa Joanna for one week and travelled with 2 little girls, both age 1.
When we arrived at the villa everyting looked so nice and the owner was there with his family to welcome us. Everything that we needed was there (enough rooms, very clean bathrooms, plenty of balcony's, large kitchen with every supply that you need). And ofcourse the lovely garden with a beautiful swimmingpool! We enjoyed it every day!! And for the little girls there was enough to play with.
Outside there is a lovely patio with outside grill.
Rethymno is like a 15 minute drive by car and is very nice to visit for shopping and eating! also nearby is the beach of Bali which is really nice.

We enjoyed our time at Villa Joanna and had the best vacation!

Villa Joanna is everything you can expect from a family vacation!
We were 8 adults with 3 young chldren. The villa offered very wide spaces, many balconies for dining and rest, super comfortable suits with designed bathrooms, and well equipped kitchen. The sea view from all around the villa is amazing and the breeze coming from the sea, as well as the perfect wheather made our vacation very enjoying.
The swimming pool is well maintained, with variety of pool games for the children - we spent many great hours in and around it.
Manolis and his family - the owners of the property - were available for us and quickly reracted to our call. We also appreciated the support of Kostas who served as our contact person from order to check-out - thank you Kostas!

We were 4 adults-4 children and spent 2 weeks in Prinos. We all enjoyed the villa and location very much. All was great: villa, garden, pool, etc. The area was quiet, while not too far from beaches and Rethymnon (car necessary). We particularly appreciated the excellent service provided by the owners, who were always keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible as well as provide useful advice as to places to visit. We would highly recommend this property.

“Fabulous family villa”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed for two weeks at Villa Joanna in June 2015. As a party of 7 adults and 1 infant we needed a large propety with space for us all to relax, and this villa certainly doesn't disappoint. Each bedroom has a balcony, and there are several areas for everybody to gather as a group. The villa offers everything you could want for a few weeks holiday, and they really catered to the infant in our group, with a cot and high-chair in the house, as well as a child-pool, playhouse, slide, and see-saw. The pool area was lovely, with a large swimming pool, sunbeds, a nearby hammock, and an outside dining area with brick barbecue.

Kostas is a great host, very helpful from the moment of booking and throughout our stay, always quick to reply to any query we had. We were made very welcome by Mr. Manolis, the owner of the villa, and his whole family – particularly his daughter Joanna, who we were invited to call upon with any questions or problems we might have. We did discover after a few days that the washing machine didn't work properly, and within 48 hours of reporting it a brand new washing machine had been installed. Every effort was made by all to make sure our stay at the villa was as pleasant and easy as possible.

There's not a lot in the village of Prinos, and a car is essential to get to shops, tavernas and the beach, but the solitude of the location makes for a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere, and watching the sunset over the sea with just the gentle sound of sheep and goats was one of the highlights of our stay.

Don't miss the small village of Panormo just 10 minutes down the road, with lovely small bars, tavernas, and a pretty harbour and beach area that's enjoyed by local families.

“Fabulous for families”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We were a group of 7 adults (from 17 to 74 yrs) and weren't sure what to expect. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the charming and friendly Manolis family who welcomed us and showed us around the villa. Kostas the property manager was also very helpful and always a phone call away if you had any issues or needed anything. He always kept in constant communication from booking to departure from property.

The villa is very spacious and lived up to the description and much more. It was fresh,clean and had all the facilities you would need.There is also a hot and cold water filter machine so no need to buy bottled water!
The huge common balcony on the second floor offers stunning views of the sea and mountains.At the back of the villa there is a good size adult swimming pool and a baby pool. There is also a hammock set in the shade between two trees on a lawned area and a BBQ area with a purpose built BBQ with a table seating for 8.

The villa is set high up on the hill so a car is a must to get around. The nearest beaches worth visiting are in Skaleta and Panormo. Nearest shops are a good 5 to 10 min drive. This villa is perfect for those who want a relaxing holiday and is also a good base if you want to venture out..

“A wonderfull villa for true holidays”

We spent one wonderfull week in Joanna's Villa that is a true place for holidays.
The villa is very clean and spacious, as well as the kitchen fully equiped with all the necessary appliances.
The villa and the yard are very well tought as at every moment you can choose to be in a ventilated shade or at complete sun.
As we were 4 adults, 3 children and 2 teens, the studio was perfect for them !
I have to mention the "too perfect pool" as it was difficult to move everyone from that lovely spot, fully equiped with sunbeds and sunshades.
The owners were very kind, with nice touches of attention ( fruits, wine, cool juices....) and very well seconded by Kostas always prompt to answer to any kind of questions and advices.
Thanks to all for these nice moments.
