Perfect location right on the sea front and has the 'envy factor' for people walking passed. The positives, met the owners wife on arrival who is very kind and helpful. The villa is modern and spacious so you don't feel on top of one another, it's immaculately clean and has a well equipped kitchen. The lounge area is comfortable and not over fussy. Nice surprise to find the 'library' of paperbacks in the sideboard. Aircon in all the bedrooms, the beds are firm but this was not a problem for us. Ask for extra pillows as only one on each of the beds. Plenty of electrical sockets throughout the villa. It was also a bonus that we did not have to buy basics such as salt/pepper, washing up liquid and toilet rolls as these were were provided. The pool area is lovely with a pleasant terrace overlooking the sea, immaculate garden and plenty of sunbeds.There are some small improvements I would suggest that for us would have made Villa Irida perfect, namely: a bracket in the upstairs bathroom to enable the shower head to be used as a proper shower not just hand held, extra sofas outside as soft seating only available for six people; more practical if the grass in front of the terrace was paved over for going in/out of the pool. Other points I would like to raise are:one description stated there was a hair dryer and beach towels provided but we couldn't find them (luckily we had brought our own). Unable to set up the TV and other electronic equipment properly as no instructions (a set in English would be useful). Also the folder containing local information disappeared after the cleaners left on the first day, fortunately we have been to Rethymnon before so were familiar with the area and what's available so didn't ask where it had gone. Some minor points raised that I do not wish to detract from what was, for us, a fabulous holiday. Thank you.
