Myself & my family stayed at this superb villa, Markos the owner is very accommodating & goes above & beyond to make sure your stay at the villa & holiday is fantastic. Would highly recommend this to any type of family or group.
first time staying in a villa as usually go to large hotels, safe to say it will not be the last, everything was perfect from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. we travelled as a large group of 12 and any apprehensions about the villa not being big enough were eradicated the moment we arrived and saw the size of this place!!! difficult to put into words how nice this villa and surrounding area is but i been all over the world and this place ticks all the boxes! cannot wait to go back and cannot recommend this villa enough
A truly special villa, a delight to stay in.
We have stayed in many villa's around the Mediterranean and this was without doubt the best. The villa was spotless and thoroughly cleaned twice during our one week stay. The pool was fabulous. The furniture around the pool and outdoor dining were high quality and was where we spent most of our time. The bedding and towels spotless. The beds extremely comfortable and the air conditioning in all rooms meant for really good nights rest. The villa is very peaceful and quiet but relatively close to all amenities. Markos was very friendly welcoming and very attentive to our needs. Do trust his recommendations for restaurants. He brings some very special touches during the stay but to tell would spoil the surprise. I can't recommend this villa highly enough. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed. Thank you so much Markos for a wonderful holiday.
Fabulous House in Good Location
Our family of 7 stayed here for just over two weeks and thoroughly loved the house and pool. The pictures on the website are truly reflective of the house. It is in immaculate condition, and everything is extremely clean. Bedding and towels being changed every 3 / 4 days. Markos is owner is superb to deal with. We highly recommend this property.
Fabulous House in Great Location
We spent two weeks at Villa Daphne and had a fantastic time. Marcos the owner was very helpful and provided grocery products for when we arrived.
The villa was extremely spacious and spotlessly clean, with additional maid service on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The children loved the pool which was at 28-30c and the outdoor area, particularly the fitness equipment, table football and air hockey.
The villa was very private and had beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. The sunsets were magnificent.
Private, quiet, luxurious oasis in a great location!
Villa Daphne is an outstanding property. We really value privacy and quiet, and this did not disappoint. You're surrounded by olive groves and well away from any neighbors. It's just a few minutes inland from the coast and the main highway, but you may as well be an hour away.
The location is very convenient--the lovely town of Rethymno is an easy 10-15 minute drive away and there are plenty of closer stores and restaurants. It's an hour in either direction to get to Heraklion or Chania, and also 1-2 hours to get to fantastic sites on the south coast, including Agios Pavlos and the Minoan ruins at Phaistos (both of which are must-sees IMO). Two easy hours gets you to the fun wavy beach at Phalasarna. And there are great walks around the local area as well.
The house is very comfortable and well-tended. The owner Markos obviously cares a lot and comes by personally to make sure that everything is taken care of (bringing gifts no less). At the same time he was very sensitive not to intrude and had no problem working around our schedule. It makes a big difference when an owner is this involved in the maintenance of the property and invests so much in it.
The beds are very comfortable (another area we're very picky about), and the pool is every bit as fabulous as it looks, with a salt-based system that doesn't leave your eyes watering and your skin smelling like chlorine. The kitchen and living and dining areas are everything you could want. And the porch is a fantastic place to relax with morning coffee or watch the sunsets in the evening.
All in all, Villa Daphne is right at the top of the list of the dozens of houses we've rented over the years, and we would be delighted to return in the future.
Villa Daphne has an amazing location for unforgettable holidays!
Totally isolated and centred in the middle of a rural area abundant with olive trees it offers full privacy for those wishing to stay in a luxury accommodation away from it all!
Simultaneously the villa is only 1.5 km away from the beach, living areas and Sfakaki market. Also found at a distance of 5 km are the well known tourist resorts "Platanias" and "Adelianos Kampos" where you can find supplies, amenities, services and entertainment!
Finally the city of Rethymno is 10 minutes (12 km) away by car!
The location gives you the advantage of quiet and private holidays engulfed in Cretan nature but close to everything!
