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.

A lovely peaceful break

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfectly placed for a peaceful break. A 5min walk to the small village with tavernas and a couple of small shops and 20min walk to bustling kato Gouves with buses to everywhere. We got a public bus to and from Heraklion airport costing 10 euros and was SO easy, saving a fortune on hire cars or cabs. The villa itself is very clean and extremely comfortable with all everything you need for a self catering stay and Lisa, the owner, was amazingly helpful with any queries we had before and throughout our stay. Will definitely be returning next year and recommending this property to friends.

Great Villa perfect for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at the Villa due to flight times and had hired a car so we had an interesting night time drive! The villa is spotless and very well equipped and is in a fantastic location for a peaceful break. The pool and patio area were great with lovely views of the mountain, sea and village. We found a hire car useful for visits to Knossos, Ag Nicholas and Lidl! The Lidl is about 15-20 mins drive away and ideal for stocking up on food and drink for around the villa. We walked to the beach on a couple days, the walk back is a drag but made better by the knowledge of Spiros taverna and a cold beer awaiting you. The village is small but everyone we met were very friendly and Spiros & Debbie are great hosts at their taverna. I would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday in great surroundings and would definitely look to return in the near future. The owners Lisa & Kirk were very helpful during the booking process and also assisting with any issues that arose during our stay.

Wonderful villa in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 couples just back from a wonderful holiday in Lisa and Kirk's villa. The villa was the perfect size for us with 2 king size bedrooms, both en-suite and both with balconies. Lisa and Kirk were in Crete when we arrived, we got a taxi from the airport and Kirk met us in the village and took us to the villa, this was a real bonus as we arrived late and it was so nice to be shown round the villa on arrival. The villa was spotless with ample bedding and towels. Lisa and Kirk were really helpful and answered all queries very quickly, before, during and after our stay. We have stayed in villas for a good few years now and I can honestly say this was the best swimming pool we have had. The decking round the pool and sunbeds were great. The covered terrace outside the villa now has a large wooden table with 6 chairs and an umbrella, not the small white table showing in the photos. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and eating at the villa, which we did most evenings and enjoyed our al fresco dining. Out of the villa to the left and 10 minutes walk up a steep hill takes you to the old village of Pano Gouves with 2 small supermarkets, a bakery and 3 tavernas. We had drinks in them all and had meals in Alvi's and Spiros, both well worth a visit. Out of the villa, turn right and walk down for 1 mile takes you to Valentina's apartments, pool bar, supermarket and gift shop, also to the main road at Kato Gouves where you can get buses or taxis. We took a taxi to Hersonnisis for 15 euros for 4 of us, well worth it. We hired a car for our last 4 days and went to Spinalonga, Elounda and Mirtos beach. A car isn't entirely necessary but worth it for a few days to see more of the island. We would love to come back to Crete in the future and would definitely stay at this villa again.

lovely villa in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, spacious villa with a fantastic pool. Very private and well maintained. Only 10 minutes walk to the centre of a beautiful Cretan village where we were made very welcome by the locals, particularly Spyros and Debbie in their taverna. Lisa was very helpful both before and during our stay and we will return.
