Brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is exactly as described. In a lovely quiet and private position and close enough to village for a short walk to the taverna in the evening.There are plenty of walks round about but when we were there it was usually too hot to walk much so just went out exploring a few evenings when it began to cool down (but not much). The pool was a great help in keeping cool also watching swallows drinking every day. Lisa was great when I asked questions or phoned. Nothing too much trouble.

Thanks Lisa for a lovely holiday

Perfect to escape for a peaceful private holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Located in the quiet town of Gouves, this villa is perfect to escape for a peaceful, private holiday. I went with just my girlfriend and I, and it was amazing, so relaxing and out of the way. However it does sleep six, so would be great for a holiday with friends as well. Despite the secluded location, it is still relatively easy to get to the sea front, or local towns such as Heraklion or Malia. It would be ideal for those renting a car as these towns are both about a 20 minute taxi ride away. A taxi is very easy to get from the super friendly guys at ‘Spiros’, a wonderful restaurant in the town. Where you can sit and enjoy a beer, or a raki until your taxi arrives.

Lisa was an excellent host and made sure we did not need anything, as well as being on the end of the phone day and night responding to any query we had.

The only downside was the rather steep hill up to the town, which may be difficult for those who do not walk as much, however it was not difficult by the end of our week there and also was worth the effort to get the delicious, freshly baked bread from the bakery.

We had an amazing time staying here and have already started thinking about when we can go back.

Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa 9th august 2017. Quiet location within walking distance to nearby village up a hill, with some bars and restaurants. Car esssential for getting out and about. Villa very private and not overlooked. Villa well stocked with everything you need and would recommend this villa and would also return ourselves.

Perfect for a "get away from it all" holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My husband and I spent a fortnight in Lisa & Kirk's villa and we absolutely loved it. Totally secluded, yet no more than a few minutes walk into the village. So peaceful, away from all the routine. The villa had everything we needed and perfectly cool and comfortable inside. Pool area is wonderful for sunbathing, drenched in sun all day long - we were on the deck every day! The locals in the village made us so welcome and could not do enough for us - they are wonderful people. We hired a car for the full two weeks which was great for getting to the local supermarket (Lidl - just a 15 minute drive) and for visiting all the wonderful places (helped enormously by the sat nav we hired). Lisa was extremely attentive from the point of booking to the end of our holiday, ensuring we were fully informed, etc. Info supplied was really good too - especially the travel directions which got us to the villa on our first attempt! Honestly, we absolutely loved this whole holiday and are already planning to return - maybe later this year, but definitely the same time next year!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

From the initial enquiry to coming home, Lisa could not have been more helpful throughout our holiday!

The villa is beautiful, in a stunning location, quiet but close enough for any activities you may want to go and do. The pool made us not want to leave, excellently maintained and perfect for kids. The accommodation has everything you need, in an evening walk up into Gouves, visit the tavernas and you'll be made to feel like part of the family.

It is an ideal base for anyone who wants to explore the area and see the real Crete. About 20 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes to Hersonissos by car but there are plenty of bus stops on the main road to catch and utilise. We hired a car and Lisa had ensured we knew which companies to use, which tavernas and eateries were good, everything was covered by her excellent instructions and knowledge.

The nights can be so peaceful, you hear crickets (think that's what they're called) and see small lizards and the lack of light pollution allows you to see some spectacular starry skies, if you want noise it's a quick taxi ride into Malia, here you have the best of both worlds.

We would highly recommend visiting this beautiful villa and using Lisa ensured our first holiday abroad went as smooth as possible.

Thank you Lisa for all of your help!

Lovely villa, fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as we expected from the description. Lovely quiet area and great pool. There are a few tavernas in the local village 5 minutes walk away. We hired a car and visited Kakki Hanni ( 5 minutes drive a way) a few nights and had some lovely meals there too as many of the tavernas in the village close to the villa were shut in late October.

Despite the weather being cloudy for 3 days (but is was the last week of October) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

A car is not essential but useful for sightseeing and shopping at Lidl.

Lisa, the owner, was very very helpful.

We will definitely return to this villa again, thank you so much Kirk and Lisa.
