“An Amazing House in a Spectacular Location”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This house was awesome !!! Planning initially with Ariadne was efficient and seamless. She greeted us at the airport and accompanied us to the house where we were met by Dimitri the owner who is an absolutely delightful man who couldn't do enough for us during our stay. The night we arrived tired from traveling he had prepared a complete delicious dinner for our group.

The pictures we saw while we were planning our holiday did not do justice to the house and grounds which are spectacular. The gardens are lush and the tiered areas going down to the Mediterranean are extremely well designed. There are multiple areas to eat and sit outside. Barbequing on the lower deck and eating all together there with fresh grilled fish and vegetables, Greek music, wine and views of the sea was magical !

Initially we thought we would do many excursions around Crete but during our 10 day stay our group fell in love with the house, the kayaks and the water and we were most happy just hanging around the pool, water front or kayaking around the coast exploring the caves etc. For me the kayaking was a highlight of the trip.

The house itself is very well maintained with everything you would want including gorgeous views of the sea from all the bedrooms.All appliances worked well and beds were very comfortable. Blinds are state of the art and create an excellent sleep environment.

I have rented houses throughout the world but I can honestly say that this was the best experience of renting a house that I have ever had.

You will not be disappointed!!!

“Fantastic ocean view villa!”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our two families with children ages 13 - 5 had a fantastic week at Daphne villa. The house was spacious and the outdoor area was amazing. It was terraced with different gathering and sitting areas, including an olive grove, a vegetable garden, orchard, children's play area, a pool, and several dining spots and places for relaxation. The outdoor kitchen is equipped with a wood burning stove and a long dining table for 20. There was ocean view from every room. There is direct access to the ocean from the property and we kayaked across to a neighboring beach for a lovely sunset dinner at a the beach tavern.
The owner, Dimitri, obviously took pride of this property and lovingly took care of everything himself along with a small staff.
We loved the property so much that it was very difficult to get out the door to explore the rest of Crete!

“an ideal place to enjoy family time in vacation”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

First, the villa is ideally located at just 10 minutes drive from the airport. It is fully equipped and the owner makes sure that you will arrive in good conditions (meal was prepared, gifts offered...). The place is very clean, with one large and luxurious garden down to the sea front. Plenty of free activities are proposed such as hammam/sauna or kayaking on the sea. We enjoyed big time the patio with this big fireplace for the BBQ. All would have been perfect without these small glitches of electricity power cuts or lack of hot water. Definitely, we would recommend the Daphne villa. The Agent, the owner and the staff were very accommodating and available when necessary.
