Why Stelios Malekakis chose Chania Region

Villa annaniko Chania Crete is the ideal place for total relaxation in an opulent setting, being completely private. One of the most luxurious Crete villas, offers the highest of standards and lies on a majestic hillside surrounded by olive groves with great views of both the Cretan Sea and the White Mountains .

What makes this Villa unique

Villa Annaniko is a spectacular piece of architecture - gracious, modern and spare. It's views are breathtaking - a long sweep of hillside and blue sea in one direction; the stunning White Mountains in another. The property is gracious and lovely, inside and out. The interiors speak to a minimalist’s taste but are without question, elegant. The landscaping - lovingly cultivated but with a respectful nod to nature's whims - is simply inspired. Near enough to a host of stunning beaches but perched above the sea, there is much to do. Watch the skies, walk through ridiculously abundant lemon, orange, and olive groves, and laze around the pristine pools. Or better yet, do all that AND explore Western Crete's richness. If this is where you're headed, you already know how special this part of Greece is. Gorges, hikes, Minoan archeology, and ridiculously good food.

He genuinely wants the villa’s guests to enjoy themselves and puts himself out to facilitate this.

                                                                      Before we arrived we asked him to help arrange two rental cars and a ‘Welcome Pack’. The cars were waiting for us at Heraklion Airport and he met us locally to guide us to the villa although it was getting on for midnight. He briefly showed us around the villa and returned for a much fuller briefing the following day. The Welcome Pack was very comprehensive and included some items ‘with the compliments of the villa’. Stelios’s English is good and his optional extra Thai massages, both relaxing and therapeutic, are excellent.

                                                                      He is quite rightly proud of the villa’s beautiful and secluded garden and lovely surrounding olive grove. He planned and maintains this garden himself and generously shares the organic fruit and vegetables that grow in it. His advice and guidance on nearby sites and restaurants to visit were also very useful and his willingness to help make our stay as comfortable as possible was much appreciated. He was a thoughtful, kind and efficient adjunct to making our stay as pleasurable as it was and he was always just a phone call away if needed.

                                                                      The villa itself is a delightful and architecturally interesting building. It is maintained to a very high standard and is well equipped and comfortably furnished. The twice weekly linen change and cleaning were very thorough. The living rooms are high ceilinged and cool even during our stay when local temperatures rose to about 40 degrees C. The air con in both the main room and all the bedrooms was effective and quiet. The en suite bedrooms themselves are well set out with comfortable beds and good storage.

                                                                      The swimming pool terraces are spacious and the main pool kept sparklingly clean. The views from the villa are terrific, looking to the sea and Goat Island in one direction and the White Mountains in the other. Although we did not really avail ourselves of it, there is a well and expensively equipped gym in the basement and the wi-fi worked well in all areas of the villa and outside around the pool & terraces.

                                                                      In summary, we would not hesitate in recommending this villa to anybody, especially given the friendly and thoughtful services of Stelios who always went the extra mile to give us a delightful and memorable vacation.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Dear Andrew,

                                                                      we are so happy about you and your friends. This is our job, to help our guests enjoy their stay and it is very rewarding. It was a pleasure having you here, thank you so much for your good words.

                                                                      Our warm greetings to all of you.

                                                                      Great vaccations!

                                                                      Cord S.

                                                                      Second stay in this nice villa!As always-Stelios was very helpful in any way.The property is very clean ( in my opinion-staying one week-the wednesday cleaning session is not really necessary) and looks much better than the photos can show! I can recommend this villa in any way-thanks Stelio's, see us in 2018! Cord Scheunemann & Family

                                                                      A real nice setting and in general great hosting. However, some very basic discrepancies

                                                                      Yagil W.

                                                                      Very nice setting and nice public areas.

                                                                      The rooms are also nice.

                                                                      However, the bathrooms are rundown.

                                                                      Main bathroom has a jacuzzi which is in bad shape.

                                                                      Other rooms showers are very squeezed abs uncomfortable.

                                                                      The ammenities are also sub optimal with one small bootle of shampoo and shower gel in each bathroom.

                                                                      The pool, in contradiction to the owner's claim is not heated, and if it does then very poorly so.

                                                                      Impossible to dip in if the temperature outside is less than real hot. Total disappointment.

                                                                      The house has virtually almost no games or otherwise thought through attention to make the guests entertained. Only one game board which is ridiculous. It is very basic to have a variety of board games and the likes when you go away to a remote place.

                                                                      The house bound sure use other facilities like table tennis or billiard or/and fitness equipment.

                                                                      The TVs screened are small and such a place could use a more central large entertainment facility.

                                                                      That is very unfortunate as basically if one does not bring something to play with or to do, you are likely to be totally bored.

                                                                      We used a local catering arranged by the owner which cooked fingers and breakfasts. They are truly nice, very reasonabley priced and extremely accommodating and friendly, doing their utmost to adhere to your desires.

                                                                      I highly recommend stickers no yo fish and local 'home made' dishes where the family who caters excels!

                                                                      All in all the attitude of everyone: cleaners, owner and service people is exceptional and if not for the unfortunate faults and lack of attention to what should be included in the Villa to make the stay more fun and interactive, it could be a dream of a.vacation

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      It is always highly appreciated the reviews our guests are posting. This enhance our aim to ameliorate the circumstances at our house. We truly regret the experience about the pool temperature and the games despite the fact that it was already informed in beforehand. The table games are being changed out with new technology and as almost everybody is carrying their tablets, laptops etc., games are not requested though consul game is available with more than 15 games to be played on new 32 inches screen, as new TV's 32 inches are installed in all bedrooms. It is not at all our impression that the bathrooms are rundown. Over the winter the villa is being renovated and developed in order to meet the needs of our guests. Nevertheless we will take the issues into consideration and we are pleased about the friendly and nice words.

                                                                      Wonderful haven

                                                                      Sarah C.

                                                                      Group of 6/8

                                                                      Totally relaxing

                                                                      Stelios was very helpful, nothing was too much trouble

                                                                      Amazing views

                                                                      Has the wow factor

                                                                      Lots of private spaces

                                                                      Great pools

                                                                      A fantastic villa in a great location

                                                                      David M.

                                                                      The listing description was accurate. The property is clean and well-maintained. The manager provides very good customer service (cleaning twice a week, ...). The location is great, with a spectacular view over the sea and the Teodorou island, and is very quiet, surrounded by olive trees and yet only 3 kms from Platanias and the seaside. In Platanias, the Kyano restaurant on the beach is great, with great food and very friendly staff. I am a very demanding customer and would definitely strongly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

                                                                      Wonderful views, great amenities, great service

                                                                      Martin P.

                                                                      We stayed at Villa AnnaNiko for two weeks in late June. We had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the pristine property. The house is spacious, nicely decorated in a modern style and has everything you could wish for.

                                                                      The views from the property are outstanding and we enjoyed the wonderful pool a lot. There are many good restaurants driving distance from the property, which we frequented for lunch, but for dinner we mostly stayed at the property to be able to take advantage of the views, the outside grill and enjoy the Cretean wines (particularly Nostos-Manusakis winery, which is also worth a visit).

                                                                      The twice-weekly cleaning crew was very good and left the place impeccably clean. Also, Stelios, the manager, was very accommodating and provided a lot good advice as to where to go and what to do. There are many nice day trips you can do from the property as Creta offers something for every taste.

                                                                      Owner's Response:
