About Craig Stapley

I live with my wife Maria and two young children in Norfolk UK where i run an Online Advertising Agency. We had been searching for quite some time to find our perfect retreat to enjoy family time and some great weather together! We eventually found it in Villa Irini.

Craig Stapley purchased this villa in 2015

Why Craig Stapley chose Apokoronos

The Villa is in an exclusive walled and gated community that breathes luxury as soon as you drive up to it. You also have the stunning white mountains at the rear of the property and the views out to Souda bay at the front - doesnt get much better than that! The Villa is surrounded by fruit and olive trees which provides a real sense of privacy and tranquility. The location is perfect for us, its quiet yet in close proximaty to some incredible beaches with all the facilities of Vamos just 1km up the road. Litsarda itself also has a great Pizzeria / Taverna as well as a grocery store. The people are so friendly and amazing with our children, has to the most family friendly place we have ever been to.

What makes this villa unique

The kids absolutely love the pool and we love the fact that we can relax while the kids play around it due to the sliding gate we have added. The new garden area and additional terrace also provides some great space to run around and play games together or sit back and enjoy the views with a drink.

The fixutres and fittings are extremely high quality with everything you need taken care of to enjoy your holiday to the max. It is a luxurious villa and a second home we love very much and look forward to sharing with you.

Location, house, pool, views back and front all excellent

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a family holiday! Good beaches are in easy travelling distance and more challenging expeditions also possible. The house is spacious and the outside area with BBQ, plenty of seating, lovely pool and views of the sea, outstanding. The house is secluded but within easy reach of everything you could want. It is also very child friendly with features like a gated pool area, stair gates etc. Local restaurants such as Parasia offer a warm welcome with excellent local food at great value prices. The holiday has reawakened our enthusiasm for Greece, to which I am sure we will now return.

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Villa Irini with a party of 7, with 3 generations of family ranging in age from 10 to 70+ years and we had an absolutely fantastic 2 week holiday. The location of Villa Irini is perfect. It's far enough away from the crowds to be blissfully peaceful, yet close enough to the beach, restaurants and tourist haunts, which are mostly a short drive away.

The views from the villa are to die for, with breathtaking views of the mountains in one direction and the sea in the other. The facilities are excellent and the villa is presented to a high standard and is child and family friendly. The villa is very sociable and well laid out with excellent external alfresco dining around the pool area. The adults in our group had many pleasant evenings drinking and talking outside whilst the kids splashed around in the pool.

Any questions or problems were always promptly answered and the management company were always on hand to answer any queries.

If you simply want to escape from it all and have a quiet pool holiday, this is an ideal spot. However, making the effort to get out and about and visit the local towns and villages is in my opinion a must as there is so much to do and the people are so incredibly friendly.

I can't recommend the villa or location enough. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay!

Superbly appointed villa.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late at night and followed instructions for directions and access, found property easily. Woke next morning and was delighted with the view,pool and property. We had two toddlers with us and the pool being separated by a glass barrier/gate was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble to Craig who supplied an extra cot and high chair for us also a welcome food pack which was a bonus (saved us having to go to the shops first thing), the buckets and spades for the toddlers was a nice touch also. Vamps is 2 mins by car with several tavernas, mini market and English butchers but 300yds away in Litsarda there is an English mini market and a superb Pizza restaraunt which we used a few times. The local beaches are only 10 mins away. The nearest large supermarket is in Kalives ( go straight through the village) where you can stock up with all you need. A very nice holiday, thankyou craig.

Family Holiday @ Villa Irini... Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our 'Familymoon' after our wedding and had the best 10 days. The villa itself is beautifully appointed inside, very safe for the kids, and the outdoor space is just perfect. The pool is big with loads of toys for the kids, we couldn't get our son out of it as he learnt to swim whilst there. Positioning is ace, load of beaches, lakes, things to do all just a short drive away and so many tavernas to choice, foodies will lap it up. All in all, we could not recommend Villa Irini enough, top quality accom and location with super friendly owners. 5 Stars!

Fantastic rural setting. Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

There's everything we needed, from the pool to the outdoor seating and massive BBQ area. The rooms were all really clean and well maintained, as was the kitchen / lounge area. We stayed in most nights as we liked the place so much as it was really peaceful, but for a couple of nights we went into Litsada ( good pizza!) And Vamos where there are loads of tavernas. Chania well worth a drive out too.

Lovely week. Would definitely recommend. Thanks!
