The location is beautiful with superb views and very peaceful. The owner was very helpful prior to our stay. We were however very disappointed with the overall cleanliness of the villa and had to buy cleaning products and spend precious relaxation time in an endeavour to make the toilets, bathroom and kitchen useable. We did notify the owner at the end of our stay but chose not to do so before because we did not want to be disturbed. We have rented villas on Crete for many holidays and this was our first poor experience . It is such a shame because the villa has huge potential and just presents as unkempt with broken items and poor decor.
Upon inspection the only broken items found were two garden chairs out of a total of eight. Six were in perfect condition.
Due to the unusual adverse weather in recent months, the villa has already been scheduled for redecoration and improvements before the next season starts.
We aim to give a 100% positive experience to our guests. We depend on employed staff to make sure everything is perfect for every arrival. When things aren’t perfect we expect guests to immediately let us know so this could be rectified and provide an excellent service.
We are very disappointed we were not advised and therefore not able to provide remedy from day one of their stay, so they would have an excellent positive experience.
Great place in the mountains.
Great location, all the comforts of home, in the middle of Rethymnon and Chania, so easy to visit both areas. Nice pool, quiet area, nice house with lovely views. Pon very helpful and answered any questions immediately. All in all a great stay. Thanks.
Great holidays in Crete
Very nice villa, well equipped, spacious, clean, with a fabulous view.
Very nice pool too, even if it was a little too cool to jump in. It is furthermore unfortunately not heated.
The beds for the children were comfortable, the double bed was too soft for us.
Very nice and helpful owner. Clear instructions to find the place.
Very good place to live in and to discover the west part of this beautiful island.
Unfortunately our stay was terrible! Don´t go there during the fall anyways, since the place is crowded with worms, both outside and inside the villa. The bottom of the pool was invaded with worms as well and no one was there to clean it up during our whole stay. The place inside wasn´t either that good cleaned and I had to throw out about 20 worms when we arrived, they were everywhere. If you touched them they excreted some horrible smell. The pool isn't at all that big as it is said in the description but it doesn´t matter since no one felt like swimming in it because of the crowd of worms. The only thing good about the place was the view. Unfortunately we didn´t want to sit outside on the terrace since the worms crawled all the way up here too. We booked a hotel our remaining stay which made this a very expensive holiday. And no feedback from the owner even though we emailed lots of times.
We are saddened to hear this visitor found their stay an unsatisfactory experience. Our guests having a happy stay is our number one priority.
Unfortunately, we were not contacted with the problems described until after the duration of the stay. Furthermore, we were not aware that this guest left the villa before their departure date.
We have a team of staff on hand that can be contacted to visit and help with any problems or issues that arise. The pool is cleaned by a professional company that can be called to visit at any time. Had we been made aware of this situation during their stay we would have investigated immediately and made every effort to resolve these issues.
We have been renting this villa since 2011 and have not experienced a complaint of this nature with another guest. The villa is located in a very natural setting and is subject to the seasonal flora and fauna appearances. In the guest book situated in the villa we have a list of some that you may come across and information regarding them. During the months of October to February harmless black millipedes are famous for appearing all around the rural countryside of Crete. Upon receiving this visitor’s feedback we investigated the villa and did not find the situation described.
We would advise that if you come across any problems upon your arrival or at any point during your stay to let us know as soon as possible so that we can respond and be of immediate help.
A beautifully located villa in a ideal location!
We really enjoyed our time in Crete staying in the very conveniently located villa. The views from the house were all that was promised and more. We had all the essentials in the villa with comfortable places outdoor to read and lounge around. All in all I would say the villa was good value and I would recommend it for anyone wishing to stay in that part of Crete.
