What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits of Villa Efzin are:

- Unique view, being located almost on top of the sea provide unique and magnificent sea view from any angle of the villa both indoors and outdoors. Sunset from the villa is absolutely breathtaking and promises unforgettable moment!

- Total quietness and full privacy as the villa is located in a fenced 8,500 sq. m hill. Also even the airport looks to be close on the map, we can guarantee that you will never hear any sound of planes from the villa area (planes are landing and taking off in a different direction, so they do not pass over or close to the villa).

- The first floor has its own independent entrance and this offers more privacy among your own group.

- The location, as the villa is located in an isolated fenced hill, offering full privacy but at the same time being close to everything such as Chania airport, beach, shops and restaurants. Also there are two wonderful sandy beaches and several choices for taverns and shops where you can go on foot.

Ναί, ναί, ναί!

Villa Efzin is a wonderful villa with a private location. We were three couples with children and it was just perfect for us to have separate accesses for downstairs and upstairs.

The views from the villa are just beautiful with a perfect sunset and the outdoor area with the swimming pool is the place where you want to stay all the day.

Every little detail in decoration both outside and inside is carefully planned and it makes this villa very unique. The living area is so overwhelming beautiful that it takes your breath away every morning you wake up.

The owners of the villa are wonderful and the help you with anything you would need. They live in the building next door. They also give you your privacy if that is what you want.

Supermarkets and few restaurants are just a walk away from the villa as well as a beautiful sandy beach. City of Hania is a 25 minute drive.

Kostas and Sofia, from the agent’s office, are also very helpful and just a lovely persons.

What you see in the pictures is what you get, and ever more. We were very satisfied with everything and can easily recommend to rent Villa Efzin.

Superb location. Wonderful owners.

  • 4 of 5

This villa is large and sits on a big secluded plot of land on a rocky outcrop right by the sea.

The views are great and the outdoor area and the swimming pool are the highlights. Very well presented and very private. The pool is large and the garden makes a beautiful backdrop.

You can tell that it was not build as a holiday rental as most others in Crete. The build quality is clearly intended to be occupied by the owners.

The owners are wonderful and very helpful. They live next door and keep mostly to themselves unless you need help which they readily offer. Their presence adds to the security of the location although the area is very secure.

The living area is huge and the kitchen is well equipped and very well presented. The only drawbacks I could find are that the decoration is a bit retro and that there is no indoor access to the upstairs.

The villa has good access to services such as supermarkets and restaurants. The City is a 25 minute drive.

Kostas, the agent, is extremely helpful for all your holiday needs.

Had great fun. Would very much recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying in our villa and the review, you were one of the best guest we ever had! I would like to inform you and future guests that we already had the plan to connect two floors by indoor stairs which will be ready in the coming summer season. Thank you once again for everything and I hope to assist you again in the future. Kostas Vasilakis

Villa Efzin is located on Akrotiri peninsula, 1 km outside the small traditional village Horafakia and between Tersanas and Kalathas sandy beach where you can visit both on foot.

The villa is built on a totally private hill surrounded by nature just a few meters away from the sea! Moreover it provides a secluded environment as there are no neighbours nearby except owner’s house which is located on the same hill.

Within 10 minutes walking distance (1 km) in Horafakia village you will be able to find a mini market, bakery, butcher, gas station, newsagent shop and some amazing traditional taverns which we will indicate you the exact location on your arrival.

Furthermore 5 km away from the villa there is a bigger village called Kounoupidiana where you will be able to find any kind of shops you may need such as traditional taverns, pharmacy, medical center, post office and many more.

Regarding Akrotiri area, there are some remarkable historical monuments, monasteries and churches, caves, the famous tombs of Venizelos and many places with archaeological interests.

In addition, if you are looking for privileges that only a big city can offer, then Chania town is 13 km away and offers unique facilities and a wide variety of entertainment.

Staying in our villa offers you an opportunity of total relaxation in a quiet and secluded area with being in small distances to living areas at the same time.

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different "location category" on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own "location categories").
