About Richard and Debbie May
We handpicked this land in 2007 for its stunning seaviews and mountainside backdrop. We completed building the villa in 2009 and have kept it to ourselves for many years, but feel now is the time to share what is a fantastic escape.

Beautiful villa in quiet setting
Stayed for a week in this villa which was beautiful. Stunning location and gorgeous view of the bay and mountains. Lovely villages to explore nearby and found the best bakery in Alymirda which we visited for breakfast a few times. The children loved the swimming pool which was a really good size. Would definitely recommend this
Lovely villa owners with the most cleanest pool ever !!
From start to finish the communication with Richard & Debbie was excellent.
The villa is huge much bigger than the photos with stunning views all the way around.
The pool was sparkling clean every day & the property managers Stelios & Maria are so lovely.
The villa is set on a hillside with the most amazing views of the sea & mountains.

Fabulous Stay at this lovely villa
Without question the best set up we've stayed at - the best equipped and set up villa we've ever stayed at.
Great Villa /great facilities/ great views/ spotlessly presented.
Great experience from start to finish - Really good and helpful communications with the owners, Richard and Debbie - really helpful information and directions provided - nothing was too much trouble.
This is without doubt the best villa we have stayed in, in terms of both location and facilities.
This villa offers everything for a relaxing holiday. Richard and Debbie have ensured that check in and check out are both easy and efficient. They are flexible and accommodating to specific requirements and they have thought of everything to make your holiday go well. From the welcome pack of basics (including local wine) to the great a/c and fan combination to ensure that night times are as cool as you want. The rooms are well-appointed and there are terraces for different times of the day, whether you want to be in the sun or seek some shade. The large 10m pool is great for both playing in and swimming and the barbeque area ideally placed to watch the sunsets. Being on a hill not only provides fantastic panoramic views of the Chania pensinsula but also provides a welcome breeze. The location of the villa ensures a quiet stay but there are supermarkets, restaurants and beaches within a 15 minute drive. The closest supermarket and taverna are around 5 minutes drive from the villa. Chania is around 45 minutes. For us it was the perfect location for just relaxing or as a base for further exploration. Thanks both for a really great holiday!!
We are so pleased you and your party enjoyed your stay at Villa Maios.
Thank you so much for giving us a review we really appreciate your positive comments. You have given a lot of detail which will prove very helpful for future guests. Thanks again.

Lovely Summer Holiday
This is a lovely villa, lots of space with comfy beds. The outdoor eating area is great as is the pool which we all loved, mum, dad and two boys. The villa is situated in a very quiet area and the views are superb. The only thing that was lacking for us was a radio. We could get the radio on one of the tablets we took with the wifi but the wifi did not reach the outdoor patio area.
The owners were superb with information and replied to any questions we had straight away.
Would recommend the villa, its lovely and the location is great if you want peace and quiet away from it all. There are some lovely places to eat within a short drive, I did walk to the nearest shop one morning early before it got too hot and it took me about 20 minutes. Crete is a lovely place and everyone we met were so friendly.
Dear Becky and family
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Maios, thank you for your very nice comments.
Thank you also for your feedback - we usually take the docking station and plug in by the pool area and then use our phones or iPod for music. We take on board your comment reference a radio and agree this would be a useful addition for future guests.
We look forward to welcoming you again sometime in the near future.

Relaxing holiday in Villa Maios.
Villa Maios is in an excellent location, very private, with a lovely pool and barbecue area.
The air conditioning and overhead fans made for a comfortable nights sleep. Phil and Chris responded very quickly when the villas water supply ran out and had the water tanks filled promptly.
The villa is only a short drive to restaurants, local shops and Almyrida beach.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would recommend Villa Maios to our friends.
