“Family Heaven”
Reviewed 12 June 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 16 October 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 8 September 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.

“Fantastic villa in an excellent location”

We (party of 8 adults and 7 children) had a wonderful stay in this stunning villa. Fantastic pool area, with a very large pool (if anything the pool is even bigger than it appears on the pictures), lovely extensive gardens (which are totally secure - i.e. no danger of children getting out or anyone else getting in) with orange, apple, fig and pomegranate trees and a large vegetable plot where we could pick tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and grapes. There are also large outdoor areas suitable for children to play in and a table tennis and pool tables. The villa was extremely clean when we arrived and a cleaner came daily and did a very thorough job of keeping it clean throughout our stay.
The villa is set on a secluded hillside above Rethymno with great views down to the sea and it is possible to walk into the outskirts of town where there are a few shops and Taverna's. It is also possible to walk to the beach, although this takes around 20 minutes and would be a demanding walk back with children. You will need to hire a car to get further into the centre of Rethymno or into the Old Town.
The villa owner, Mr Vasilis is extremely friendly and helpful and even took some of our party for a drive around the area on the first morning to help us get our bearings and show us where the best shops, beaches and restaurants were. He also offered to take us out on his boat.
Rethymno is lovely, very pretty old town, great scenery, very nice beaches (warm sea, nice sand, clean and very quiet considering we were there at the height of the season).
We have been on many villa holidays before but this was easily the best we have ever stayed in and I would recommend it without any reservation - really can't think of any critical comments to make at all and we may well be back there next year!

“Fantastic villa with lot of convienience and agreat scenery”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A great place with lot of space and nice areas for everything.
Easy to get both Rethymnon old town, shops, restaurants and beaches , Although youdont need it. The villa is so generous so you could (if you want) spend all your vacation in the garden. The owner is a real gentleman and very friendly.
