Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nicely constructed house, with great windows and A/C, comfortable beds, and pretty grounds. There are three bedrooms in the house, accommodating 4 people (more if you used the couches), and the 4th bedroom is a separate little apartment on the ground floor. This apartment was fine for our teenagers. The owner was nice to work with and accommodated our late evening arrival, meeting us at the house. It was very hot during our stay and the cicadas were unceasing and so shrill, we found we could only sit out for a little while during the day on the terrace. Night was nice and quiet. For us, we found the house a little too far out of Chania, and the local beach, Tersanas, a little too placid. The beach is good for families with small children, who don't want any wave action. We drove to Falassarna one day and enjoyed the waves at that beach. Another day, we arranged for transport to Samaria Gorge, and did the hike.

An amazing villa, for just a few days or an extended stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at three different places during our recent late May/early June trip to Crete, and this was by far our favorite. And beautiful, spacious home, with gorgeous ocean views and a very short walk to the beach. Perfect for kids in every way, great kitchen for preparing one's own food, and comfortable beds. Our favorite part was probably the big outdoor dining table, allowing us to have memorable meals overlooking the ocean and orchards.

Villa Kiara is a piece of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at Villa Kiara was so perfect! The house in its private setting was beautiful and comfortable for our group of 6 adults. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms for privacy and convenience. We enjoyed the living spaces inside and out, especially the large veranda with a big table and chairs perfect for meals and gatherings. A two minute walk down the street in front of the house took us to a gorgeous beach that we were happy to share with a few local families. We spent hours near the golden sands and turquoise water. it was heavenly! Cappucino at the beachside Rose Cafe started the day and delicious lunches and dinners were just a walk across the beach at the Tersanas Restaurant. The owner Theo was a friendly and helpful host.

Kiara, the owner of the house, met us when we arrived and was very responsive to any phone call or email during our stay. She maintains the property to a very high standard. Her style was found all through the house in the furnishings and outside in the many gardens. We flew into Heraklion and then drove to the villa in about 2 hours. Kiara coached us by phone around the last few curves in the road and then had fruit, biscuits and wine to greet us.

We all agreed the only thing wrong with our stay at Villa Kiara was that it should have been for two weeks instead of one!

Great location & property, so close to beach...

  • 5 of 5

Helpful & prompt responses pre arrival, lovely welcome by Kiara. Light, bright, open plan living, with super views & great outside spaces. Really good to walk down road to beach with lovely, easy sea swim. Good beach bar & taverna to walk to also. Chania a beautiful city to visit & not far to travel to. Look forward to staying again Kiara X

Quiet oasis

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of ladies stayed in this lovely villa. The pictures do not do it justice. There is plenty of space indoors and outdoors, though we chose to mainly eat outdoors in the expansive veranda. We used the villa as our home base to explore the Chania prefecture, but also enjoyed our days at home base. The hostess, Kiara, is very accommodating and we had everything we needed and more. The villa is very well appointed for a short or extended stay. We would take the short walk down the hill to swim at Tersanas Beach every day, even if we were visiting another beach that day. Definitely would stay here again and considering a one month stay next time.

Unbelievable beauty & privacy

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first stay in a villa, and we weren't disappointed! Not only was the property beautiful and private, but the hostess (Kiara) was so welcoming and helpful! We were met at the airport and escorted to the villa (and given good directions around Chania and back to the airport). She made sure the fridge was stocked with fruit and drink (perfect for hungry travels just arriving somewhere), and even dropped off traditional Greek yogurt because my mom had never tried it. And if we had a question she responded right away! The villa was so clean, the kitchen was large and fully stocked, and there was air conditioning. It was so nice to have 2 bathrooms and showers. Outside you are surrounded by a large cement wall/fence, olive trees, and other fruit trees. It's a private paradise. The roof is perfect for private sunbathing. And you're steps away from a small seafood restaurant at the swimming hole/inlet by the house. Larger beaches were just 10 minutes away. We could have stayed even longer. We will be back!
