This Villa is amazing

  • 5 of 5

The villa is the best we have ever stayed in. It is exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owner could not have done anything else make our holiday moe enjoyable. We were able to pick fresh herbs and lemons from the beautiful garden; a welcome meal and drinks were provided on our arrival, which was wonderful We were also given home made produce, which was all delicious. The views from the balconies are stunning with mountains on the right and the sea to the left. The pool was fabulous to swim in with no chemical smells and always clean. The owner was always on hand to answer questions but we never felt intruded upon. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villas, it is a very special place.

Owner's Response: I was very happy to have the opportunity to receive this beautiful British couple and their 3 teen-age children at my villa for 3 weeks. I was equally pleased to see that all enjoyed themselves and left relaxed and very satisfied with their stay at my villa. At M&M villa we pride ourselves for our uniqueness and our desire to achieve excellence! The villa is well situated and quiet. It caters well to families, couple(s) or groups of friends allowing an atmosphere where one can relax in a well equipped and spacious villa surrounded by spectacular gardens and views or amongst others swim in a beautiful designed large private pool. Again, I wish to thank this family and hope that I will be given once more the opportunity to receive them and give them the same welcome and attention that I have given to them during their stay. See you back soon! Manolis

perfect in every detail

  • 5 of 5

Special location with great views from both terraces, very comfortable with every thing one could wish for to hand. The gardens are wonderful and the private pool and space for sunbathing spectacular. The literature information kept in the villa was comprehensive and really useful. The generous hospitality provided by the owner Manolis was completely unobtrusive and in our experience unusual.

First rate villa and owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious villa in a beautiful location that will not disappoint. From the moment of contact, the villa owner was very efficient and helpful. He was thoughtful about every aspect of our stay, from arranging the meet and greet at the airport so we could follow in our hire car right to the villa gates; to the wonderful local foodstuffs awaiting us which meant no mad dash to the supermarket; to the wonderful meal prepared for our first night; to the comprehensive tour of the house and property; the provision of a mobile phone so we could contact him if necessary; the in-house information pack and the gift of some of his own organic olive oil to take home. Manolis couldn't have been more genuinely welcoming and helpful.

The villa is on a large plot on a hillside with great views - an enviable position and one we never tired of. It is maintained, decorated and cleaned to a very high standard throughout. Everything works well (though we did have intermittent wifi, but it wasn't a real problem) and if you have any questions he is only a phone call away. We kept saying how fortunate we were to have found this property and owner.

On the ground floor is the entrance and this leads to the first bedroom, what I would say is the master suite, as it is self-contained with its own very large bathroom, lounge, kitchenette and balcony. also on the level is a very large garage that is equipped as a utility room for your use, should you want to do any washing. The veranda on this level has vies of the garden.

Up a wide marble staircase to the next level is the main area of the house. Here are two further bedrooms, one a double and the other a twin, with a shared shower room between them. There is also a lounge and the main kitchen. and a veranda with views of the coast and White Mountains across olive groves.

Outside are beautifully maintained gardens that are obviously very productive with olive tree, citrus trees, aloe vera, peppers, flowering plants and bushes and a large herb garden. I've probably not done justice to it in this brief description. The pool is wonderful - along a path through part of the garden. It has the same views as the main level veranda - sea and mountains and olive groves and is not overlooked so is very private. There are large sunbathing areas in sun or shade and the pool is large and goes from one to two metres in depth. The water quality is superb. There is a convenient bathroom at the pool.

Owner's Response: I would like to thank Maureen and her husband for taking the time to write this beautiful review and for their kind words. I particularly appreciate the description given of what they feel to be the highlights of the property and what they enjoyed the most about it. Well done! I am also pleased to read that they have enjoyed my in-put and all the help that I was able to provide to them in receiving them and making sure that they felt at home from the very beginning of their stay. I was happy to arrange a meeting at the Chania airport to escort them to the villa. When a group comes in on a late arrival flight late evening, I do try to provide this service. Otherwise, for regular day or early evening arrivals, I do offer and send to the travelers beforehand a comprehensive package including map and hand sketch map giving detail description of how to get to the villa from the airport. Finally, I would like to thank them for pointing out their experience with the WIFI. Noted and I will see to it! I hope to have the opportunity to receive Maureen and her husband at my villa again and finally, making use of Maureen's own expression, I wish to thank these two "first rate" travelers for their honest and genuine support. Thank you for coming and see you both again at M&M villa! Manolis

A beautiful private villa. Wonderful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We were so sorry to leave this villa. We have stayed in some beautiful villas, cottages and even cruise ships in amazing destinations, but in our opinion M&M Villa was the most outstanding for cleanliness, facilities and situation. It was just a short drive to the shops. We would recommend the short walk up through the village to see the cave there.

On our late arrival Manolis had some wonderful food prepared for us, along with raki and wine.

We did not want to leave the villa, even though it was our first stay in Crete and on the occasions we did had to force ourselves to leave the gorgeous, warm, large, private pool with stunning views, surrounded by orange trees and jasmine flowers. Manolis cleaned the pool and gardens every morning, but before we were up.

The villa had everything we needed and lots more besides. If there was something we wanted or any help needed, then Manolis was at the end of the phone at any time.

There are lots of books, CD's and videos for entertainment and listening to Handel whilst watching the red full moon rise from over the mountains was magical. My mum said that she could now die happy! In 70 years she hasn't seen anything like it.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Manolis for renting out this superb villa and for all of his help and meeting us at the airport.

We cannot recommend this place enough.

Owner's Response: I wish to thank this beautiful family for the enthusiasm and the appreciation that they have shown towards my villa. I am also pleased that they enjoyed all that M&M villa has to offer! Special thanks to Helen for taking the time to share with other travelers the sentiments of her family and her mother. I hope that I will have the opportunity to have them all at M&M villa once again in the near future. Manolis

As stated in all the previous reviews this villa is really 5 star(+). We had a personal reception at the airport, a full meal including wine and beer provided for our first night and Manolis & Marcel were then on hand at a press of the supplied mobile phone were we in need of anything else. The pool was cleaned every day without us noticing and having thought long and hard there is nothing that could be improved upon.

A car is essential for the location but everything you need is then a short drive away including shops, many restaurants and beaches; the best one is at Falassarna which is a 20 minute drive but well worth it.

Overall I would have no hesitation in returning to or recommending M&M Villa to others.

Spacious villa with beautiful pool / garden!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is everything the pictures and earlier reviews promise. Both terraces are overlooking seemingly endless olive trees as well as the Mediterranean See. The pool can be reached by a very short path through the garden. The water is crystal clear (temperature was 32 degrees!). Manolis is doing his utmost in order for his guests to have a splendid stay. The house is very well equipped and clean. Beach can be reached within 5 minutes.
