Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had the best holiday ever, your villa is so beautiful and the views are amazing. It was like paradise, waking up every morning to sunshine, spectacular views and feeling like in the middle of nowhere. Will definitely recommend your villa to all we know.

Jacky Rodens, Summer 2010

We had a fantastic holiday in your villa – in terms of quality, comfort, location and view, it really was the best we have ever stayed in. The shady areas were really handy, the pool was perfect and even the beds were comfy – which you don’t often find in holiday villas!! -David and family, August 2011

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a fantastic stay in this wonderful villa. The views are spectactular and it is lovely and peaceful. The villa is private as is the pool, it has a beautiful veranda balcony overlooking the town and the bay. The villa is in very good condition and is well looked after, it is air conditioned throughout, the pool is of a good length and is in good condition, the rooms are of a good size and would easily accomodate 8 people, the kitchen is well stocked and functional. We loved this place and Wendy the owner was very helpful in booking it and with advice on how to get there etc. Had a really comfortable and relaxing ten days and would definitely return in the future.

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful family holiday to this villa.

The views were spectacular from every angle - sea and mountains.

The position was very private and peaceful but easy to walk down into the town, although a taxi back in the evenings was welcome!

We didn't find it necessary to hire a car, especially as a bus ran into Chania every day, and taxis were easy to find.

The villa is very well equipped, everything you could possibly need, all good quality, and very clean.

I would definitely return.
