About Frederik de Zeeuw Amstelveen Holland

Hi, I am Frederik de Zeeuw, I live in the Netherlands, Amstelveen with my wife and three sons. I had a dream of retiring in my own house in Greece so I had a house build on Crete. For now I am one of the owners of a successful consultancy company, Premium Business Consultants. We have been visiting Greece since our early twenties and I still feel very much at home in Greece. The kindness of the people and their relaxed attitude still feels great. I visit Crete as often as possible. You can find my business profile on Linkedin.

Frederik de Zeeuw Amstelveen Holland purchased this house in 2011

Why Frederik de Zeeuw Amstelveen Holland chose Rethymnon area

When we first came to Panormo about 30 years ago we had a great holiday. It is a small coastal town with a harbor and three lovely beaches. Simple but good taverna’s and nice people. Over the years every time we came to Crete we went to Panormo for a day or so. In 2010 we saw this nice new development from Interland “Sea front homes II”. A Mediterranean type of park on Crete. Very unlike other developments. We immediately were attracted to its nice atmosphere and bought one of the properties.

What makes this house unique

Staying in this great place you can just relax, have your children play in a reasonably safe environment. You can eat in an excellent restaurant, Porto Paresi, overlooking the harbor and one of the beaches. You can walk to town and the beaches. When you arrive you can just unpack. The house is clean, the beds are made and the pool is waiting. You can even have the fridge filled with foods and drinks for your convenience. Just send us an e-mail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Frederick



Just wanted to let you know that we've had an absolutely brilliant time in Panormo. Your house is great: it's really well equipped, spacious, and having the private garden area so near to the pool is excellent.



Panormo has been perfect for us - it's really quiet but with plenty of places to eat. We had really good meals at Porto Parisiris (at your recommendation) and also Taverna Kastro.



Thank you for renting your lovely house to us, we'd love to think that we might return one day.

Lovely apartment, great terrace and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week here - a very comfortable and chilled out place. A clean, modern villa, ideal for a couple with everything you would need. There is also a large terrace overlooking the pool where we spent much time relaxing. Lots of interesting places to explore in the surrounding area and Panormos itself has supermarkets, a bakery, and good choices for eating out, all just ten minutes walk away. Great service from Frederik - so good to order some shopping as we arrived on a late flight. We have lots of lovely memories - amazing sunsets, the honeysuckle scent from the gardens and the hugely friendly locals. We wished we had booked two weeks....next time!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is really well-appointed, clean and modern, and had plenty of space for 2 people. It is right on the pool area, which was really nice, beautifully landscaped and kept very clean. It is about 10 minutes easy walk from town, a bit less to the beach. We really liked Panormo town, it has lots of character and plenty of good restaurants and nice shops, and was easy to get to from Heraklion. The rental process was really easy, Frederik was very responsive and provided all the information we could need and more. Overall, a great experience from start to finish.

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most relaxing holiday I think we have ever had. We found the property to be very clean and comfortable, the pool is just a few steps away and is very well maintained, it was also great to have wifi. We took advantage of having some shopping delivered for our arrival which took the stress out of having to dump our bags to then go out for basics, bread, water etc. The property is located within walking distance of some excellent restaurants, the harbour (more restaurants) and the beach, we did have a car but found the walk to and from the amenities very pleasant. Would definitely recommend this property and the village of Panormos especially if you are looking for quiet and chilled.

Lovely, modern and comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the house for 5 nights in mid May. The house is located at the far end of a lovely little village, in a small complex of modern houses, in a quiet location near the sea. The apartment was very comfortable, modern, clean and spacious, with a terrace overlooking the large and very attractive pool. Mary, who lives in the village, met us on arrival to show us in, and was available if we had any questions. As it was early in the season there were only a few occupied properties and it was very peaceful. Even though the pool was a little too chilly for me at this time of year, it was really great to sit and have breakfast on the terrace, or relax and read a book, overlooking the pool. A minute walk to the end of the road and you can take a short walk along the cliff path overlooking the sea. It's a short walk into the village (10 mins max), where there are a number of excellent restaurants, and a few shops.

This is a perfect location for exploring Rethymnon or travelling inland to the Arkadi Monestary. A lovely drive across the island to Preveli beach takes less than 90 minutes and is well worth the trip. (Be prepared for the 500 zig zag steps down to the little beach). On route you can visit the ancient minoan cemetry of Armenoi.Iraklion is only an hours drive and the musuem is excellent - buy a joint ticket and go on to Knossos from there.

If you don't have a car there is a company in the village where you can book day trips to all the main sites such as the Samaria Gorge, Iraklion etc.

I would definitely recommend this property.

Very clean with every extra you want on holiday, great pool area and only short distance to the village, the apartment has a lot more going for it than the owner advertised. Great location to explore Crete from.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just a short walk into the village of Panormos which we got to see gradually coming to life at the beginning of April. Some lovely tavernas close by, especially Barba Andreas!

The house is in a lovely quiet spot- walk out the front door in the evening and you can watch the sunset over sea and mountain; walk out the back door and the swimming pool is a mere few feet away!

With a rental car, there is quick and easy access to the main road connecting Rethymnon, Irakleio and Chania. It is the perfect location from which to explore this stunning island. Hopefully one day we will return.
