“One of a kind, spectacular villa on Crete”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

For our vacation to Crete we searched exhaustively for that "perfect property", and we found it with SK Place. Their website does not embellish in any way, and we were suprised to find the villa actually exceeded our admittedly high expectations. The Villa is a very unique rental property in Crete...it is literally steps to a fantastic family beach and small town with numerous quality restaurants and activities. The owners were amazing, answering our questions and dealing with any requests promptly and warmly. The quality of the villa is superb, from the manicured front lawn from where we enjoyed sunsets, to the air conditioned and immaculate interior. This is a perfect location for families who want to explore Crete from a relaxing, safe and convenient base.

These three villas are within walking distance of the tavernas and shops, but you are a world away from the tourist village of Almyrida in terms of peace and luxury.

You are far away from the lines of sun lounges on the beach and adjacent sports bars when you are relaxing on your wonderful patio with glorious views of Souda Bay and beyond.

The villa Ammos is decorated on a beach theme and was immaculate ( due to the attention of the two wonderful and personable housekeepers each day). The owners seemed to have anticipated every guests needs in advance and the bedding, toiletries, towels and kitchen set up were all first class.

No, it is not cheap, but is it value for you money - yes!

We spent 3 weeks in Almyra Residence, one of three villas in SK Place in 2009. We loved every and each day spent in this place so I booked another 3 weeks in advance for this year.
Villas are located at the end of the village in quite and peaceful place. Just 5 minutes of plain walking by foot and you can reach a beach and all village facilities like restaurants, shops, etc.
The village itself is calm and lovely. Nothing antic but very suitable for relaxing vacation especially with a little children. The main attractions are two beaches, one in opposite to another.
No waves even the rare wind blows occasionally. It is hard to beat Almyrida's beaches all over Mediterranean if you are looking something to bath or swim young children any ages in open sea water. The water was warm till the end of October. There were no heat in the air late September and October as we came. Almyrida bay is inside huge Souda bay and defended against rough sea in every angle. Almyrida publics dominated by English people but there are a lot of Scandinavians as well so no problem to be understood if you are speaking English.

Chania is in the short approximately 30 min ride and the Venetian town is beautiful especially at the evening. Good place for romantic dinner, you can find fish restaurants and traditional taverns there. Nothing interesting to do a shopping there but relax and enjoy things around, you are in the Greece not in Paris or Milan. Just some touristic goods can be purchased there in unhurried manner at the evening. To tell you the true it is not so easy to drive through Chania and find a parking place in the Harbor but it worth. The best option can be use GPS I think.
Try to go a little bit inland and you will reach Vamos there you can find one of the best grilled lamb to eat right on the main square. Or just sit open air and order a Frappe that is pretty nice at this place too.
You will be provided with all necessary information about nearby areas in SK Place so don't worry and keep your practical guides at home. I am not kidding you but SK Place information is extremely useful and updated. If anything was missed you have a high speed Internet connection at villas to get information.

As for villa itself all other contributors said many good words and I can share their opinions at 100%. Villas are the first class properties so it worth every penny you consider to spend.
They are designed and owned by local Architect and I was really impressed by each details. No money was spared during construction so the result is exceeding your expectations.
Panoramic sea view is fabulous. You can take a breakfast and sunset dinner and observe 180 degrees Souda bay and mountains behind. I am travelling a lot across Europe, South America and Africa and can say that Almyrida sunsets are one of the best definitely.
If you need something during your vacation you will be assisted by Authentic Crete agency which will provide you with top-notch concierge service including but not limited by car hires, excursions and any local tips. They assisted us with our 2 days visit to Santorini.

At the resume, this place is about how to do things the best.

we had a holiday which will be hard to beat at the villa almyra. i have never ever had such a spectacular bath with views to die for! service, beds all were marvelpos ,especially the pillows! i travel EVERYWHERE with my Hungarian duck down pillow and for the first time EVER it was not needed. if I were to be horribly perdantic the only down point would be to have a few more channels on tv. I am however a member of tv anonymous! Just go and you will love it.

The place is more than it is promising on the web-site! The view is breathtakingly beautiful! The place is peaceful and wonderful for relaxing and enjoying luxury of life. Early morning sun rising with the clear sky, the mountain view is extraordinary. Night sky with stars is one-of-a-kind. The villa itself is designed to perfection! I had also the pleasure of getting to know Katerina and Pavlos, who are the owners of the wonderful place and they are simply the best! This place I will visit again!
