“Lovely villa and pool with a homely feel”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We arrived by cab from Chania airport and were greeted by Yioula on arrival. The villa is as it looks in the photos with a great terrace for out doors meals and a fair sized pool. The villa is modern and well equipped. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance as well as some convince stores to get supplies for home catering. We hired a car from a local agent to get out to see rural Crete and found some great beaches and fish restaurants. My wife, teenage daughters and I all had a great holiday here.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Better than expected (and we had great expectations!)! Most of the times pictures on a website or in a brochure gives a prettier view than you find when you actually get there. Not Villa Rhapsody and Villa Melody, they were splendid, with an atmosphere hard to capture in a photo. The villas are situated in the middle of Platanias, close to a very nice beach, with everything just around the corner. But when you step inside the gate of Rock houses it´s like an oasis. Quiet (except from the not-annoying crickets;-), peaceful, clean, cozy, everything we wished for on our holiday! We can really recommend the villas to anyone who enjoys a Cretan holiday with a high-class accommodation

“Dream vacation.”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My sisters and I came to Rock Houses Villas to celebrate my birthday—and what a birthday it was! Villa Melody was a lovely home—immaculate, comfortable, and brimming with all of the amenities for which one could hope (and some I hadn't even considered). While in a bustling tourist town, Villa Melody felt extremely private. It was the best of both worlds: private home and access to shops, restaurants, etc. Yioula and her family were warm and welcoming and always happy to answer questions. If I travel to Crete again, I will most definitely stay here. Dream house for a dream vacation.

“Beautiful property”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 for a stay in April 2012

We (a couple) stayed at Villa Melody for a week in April/May last year. The property is set back from the main street behind gates but it is so quiet and peaceful that the proximity is no issue at all. The property is very well maintained (and cleaned daily) and even though it is built in the style of a traditional rustic villa, it is only a few years old so no wear and tear. We were welcomed by Yioula who had left a hamper with homemade and local goodies in our kitchen, very nice indeed. We really enjoyed the garden area. It is extremely well-kept and we spent most days in perfect quiet by the pool enjoying the weather. There is nothing particularly special about the main street outside the gates, but there were some nice restaurants and shops to have a wonder around in the evenings. The beach is also only a ten minute walk away, but in honesty we did not feel the need to venture away from our garden! The owners live next door so they are always on hand if necessary. Definitely a great place to spend a relaxing week.

“A little paradise!”
Reviewed January 23, 2012 for a stay in November 2011

We visited the villa Melody in winter time. The owners are so warm and welcoming and the house itself is very cozy and comfortable with a nice fireplace and lovely decoration so that you forget its wintertime. Everything you need is there, a good coffee machine, all the tools to cook a good meal although there are many nice restaurants in the neighborhood.
If you enter the premises it's like you enter an oasis, quit and serene.
The garden, terrace and swimming pool are well maintenanced.
We also visited the villa in summertime, and the location is perfect! It's quit around the villa, but if you want to taste the Cretan nightlife, you are at walking distance to lots of nice bars, restaurants and shops. Rock House bar is good for an evening of pure ambiance! If you rent a car there are also a lot of nice places to visit on the Island. Something interesting for everybody! We can recomment Villa Melody to everybody and will go back soon!!!
