Excellent property with superb owners
The owners were only too happy to help with anything and gave a superb welcome pack of food and drinks. The villa is of very high quality and is kept clean by the cleaner who comes in once a day.
The pool is fabulous. It is also very relaxing and quiet.
Highly recommend this villa and will definitely come back.
Dear David, thank you so much for recommending our villa to other travellers and we hope to have you back soon! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Excellent stay at Blue Villa
We had a lovely stay at Blue Villa, fully enjoying the stunning environment, refreshing pool and great hospitability. On our arrival, we were surprised to find our fridge full of drinks and food to put us up. Every day Kostas and his family came round to check if everything was OK and if we needed anything. We enjoyed the BBQ meat we were given and appreciated the cleaning lady keeping our house up to standard every other day. The beaches in the area are stunning, we enjoyed the snorkeling very much. In short, we have fallen in love with Crete and hope to be back soon!
Dear Eef, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Nice villa but misleading description
Booked the villa based on the outside space and the description of totally private and tranquil pool area.
Sadly this is not true! The outside space is a great space and well laid out but there is no privacy and it is not tranquil. The villa is on a busy main road so there is a constant flow of traffic passing by that you can hear loudly from the pool and in the villa if windows or shutters are open. The main road goes uphill past the villa so it is possible for drivers to look down into the pool area which they naturally do.
Secondly there is a farm track by the villa that is used daily so again drivers can look in as they pass the gates you see at the end of the pool area.
Finally beneath the villa there is a family in residence so you have noise of kids, the mother arguing and their cars are parked by those gates to the pool so they look in everytime they come and go. They also have fast food delivery every day so you are disturbed by that. Finally they have a dog that barks a lot and comes into the pool area constantly, twice I had to clear up where the dog had urinated and defecated on the patio by the pool.
This is not what I booked this villa for so therefore am very disappointed.
The villa was also missing a decent selection of kitchen knives and a chopping board plus no pool towels were provided.
The villa is kept really clean with the maid coming in frequently and the owner is very helpful and friendly.
I would not return because the villa did not deliver on privacy or tranquility and I should not have to keep clearing up dog mess when I am holiday.
thank you very much for choosing our Villa for your stay in Crete and for taking the time to share your recent experience.
However, please allow us to also pass you some further feedback on your comments, which would be valuable to comprehend our part also.
Regarding the privacy of the property, we would like to state that the Villa is surrounded by a tall fence and cars or people passing outside, are not able to look inside the Villa. Also, the closest road is located 10 meters away and again it's difficult for others to see inside the Villa.
As far as quiet of the area is concerned, the Villa is located in a rural area and the road is only a little busy in the mornings as it's a provincial road and not a main road.
Finally, regarding the neighbouring Villa, is also a holiday rental. We accept that the neighbours during your stay may have been a bit noisy, but that's not normally the case and we have never received similar complaints from previous guests.
As you were in frequent, almost daily, contact with our office and the owner as well, we really wish you would have mentioned all the above issues to us during your stay, as we would have done anything possible to make your stay more comfortable.
We greatly appreciate feedback from our guests and constantly strive to achieve the highest quality standards and we would like to let you know that we have already taken action to add the mentioned items to the Villa as well.
Allow us also to reassure you that we are all, as a team, seeking to exceed guest expectations staying with us & our main priority is to make all our guests happy and feel at home when staying with us. We thank you once again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you to our property again in the near future. Sincerely, ThinkVilla Team.
Blue Villa 1 Perama Crete
Fabulous Villa in an excellent location. Very friendly owner and family. Cleaning lady was also very good. Great place.
Dear Pamela, thank you for kind review regarding our Villa and services! We hope to have the chance to host you again in the future! Best regards, Think Villa Team.
Fantastic pool area
A lovely villa with a great pool and surrounding area.
Kostas the villa owner was so generous with so many gifts of food and drinks and the villa was cleaned and sheets and towels changed by a lovely lady Maria.
Communication with Valia was easy and efficient throughout.
Dear Fiona, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Lovely Villa with Amazing Pool Area
We booked the Blue Villa II after speaking with Valia who was prompt and helpful from the outset to my many questions. The main selling point for us was the pool area and we were not in the least disappointed, in fact it was bigger and better than expected with fantastic views over the olive groves and the mountains. Being able to watch the sunset in the evening was the icing on the cake. The villa itself is well equipped and comfortable with quality appliances and everything you could need. The owner and his family were extremely generous, diligent and welcoming. The added maid service was excellent too. Valia was available for our every question and the owners only a phone call away - not that we needed them.
Overall the package from booking through to help with rentals and the accommodation itself was excellent and I can't recommend Think Villa and Blue Villa II enough.
Dear Grant, thank you so much for your kind review and for recommending our villa to other travellers! We hope to have you back soon! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Blue Villa I is located in Perama town which is within 5 minutes driving to everything that you might need like shops, bakery, grocery store, butcher’s, taverns, cafes, supermarkets, ATM machines, pharmacies, gas stations and post office.
Also Panormo, is a friendly sea side village, 10 minutes away by car and well know for its sandy beaches. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds & umbrellas. Water sports are also available. The harbour beach in front of the village is the port of the area, where the boats tie up, this beach is unorganised.
The village has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.
Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.
Panormo has regular bus itineraries every 30 minutes that connects Heraklion and Chania cities.
