Quiet location but still central with amazing sea views and near the many sandy beach.

All Fabulous Superlatives
This was truly our home away in Crete. Our expectations were high and they were exceeded. Ideal for our 3 generational group of 6. Beautiful, comfortable, very clean. With the 4&2 year old kids we appreciated being 25 minutes from the airport. We were far enough away from busy Hersonissos to have a peaceful quiet setting but close to all amenities. Walking distance or short drive to lovely typical town of Koutouloufari.
Most importantly, our fantastic gracious hosts. Always accessible, gracious and extremely helpful. From solving a serious car rental problem upon our arrival in Crete, to arranging a wonderful yacht experience and tips & guidance on a regular basis. 24/7.
Thank you very much Antonella & Marios. We give the highest recommendation and we hope to return.
It's a dream's home! I was 2 weeks woth spme friend and we stayed very well. All accurately clean and staff super!! I will come back again in the future.
Fantastic villa , extremely helpful owner .
We have just returned from a fantastic stay in this stunning villa . Close to all amenities ( despite the steep climb - which was needed after evenings of indulging on glorious food ). All the locals are extremely helpful and kind , almost going out their way to assist. Local entertainment area around " star beach hotel " is great for a few hours entertainment with family throughout the day - providing music , waterslides, numerous taverns/ restaurants and local water sports on offer .
The owners themselves had been exceptional throughout our entire stay , always on hand to help with anything. Nothing was too much bother for them . I cannot rate our stay enough , will definately be going back again another year . Thank u 😁�😁�.
Great family holiday place
We all enjoyed our stay in Villa Crete, myself, my husband and our two kids 9 and 3 years old. Favourite spot from the kids was the heated pool that they enjoyed lots! The villa is nice located so you have the chance to go wherever you want avoiding too much trafic and at the same time you have a great view! Very clean and well-maintained!
Thank you very much for your positive feedback.
We are looking forward welcoming you again in Villa Crete.
Stunningly beautiful property, in a great location, but spoiled by a lack of maintenance and repair
The house is beautifully designed and very comfortable. A five star experience downgraded to three stars due to a lack of attention to detail and standard of maintenance/repair. We rented the property over half term in October 2017 as it boasted a heated swimming pool. On arrival we found that the pool heating had tripped out and the pool was freezing cold (no pool cover and relatively cold weather). Although this was fixed on our second day, the pool never had time to get up to temperature during our stay, which was a huge disappointment meaning it was cold all the time (and having had to pay 70E a day for electricity, yes, that;s 70E a day, which was way more than we have ever paid anywhere else, ever, really was an issue for us).
In the house, the toilet seat in the en-suite bathroom was broken (and despite the owner saying it would be fixed, no-one ever came to fix it) and none of the TV's worked (it appears that previous renters had unplugged cables, broken sockets etc - but this should have been checked before we arrived, to make sure all was in order). In the kitchen, there were no tea-towels, hand-towels or oven gloves, so we had to buy these ourselves.
In summary, a beautifully designed very comfortable home, let down by attention to detail and faults that could and should have been rectified before we discovered them on our arrival and not what one would expect at this price level. With a little more care and attention to detail from the owners, this could have been a 5 star rating.
thank you for your feedback.
We are really sorry for your experience and made sure all maintenance problems are fixed now and kitchen equipment bought.It is a pity you didnt inform us about missing items when you were here so we could have provided you with everything.
Also the pool did have a problem which unfortunately just happened then so we didnt know in advance but after resolving the problem, we heated up the pool for you free of charge for your entire stay.
We will make sure that we pay attention to each detail and maybe welcome you back some time.
Great villa, great location
We stayed in this villa at the end of October during the childrens' half term holiday and were a 6 (two children 4 and 6, parents and grandparents). The villa was very conveniently situated about 10 minutes walk from the beaches in Chernosossis and 15 minutes from Koutouloufari where there's a huge choice of restaurants. The villa itself was very modern with good facilities for 6 people. Given the time of year, we paid for pool heating which meant that we were able to enjoy the pool during the entire holiday even when the weather cooled down. The last week in October was very much the end of the holiday season in Crete so there were less facilities open than in the summer but the sea was warm enough to swim in. I think we would find Crete too crowded in the summer but in October it was an excellent chance to see the sites and enjoy the beaches in relative calm. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa as a place to stay and would also recommend Crete in October for families who like mixing beach fun with sightseeing.
thank you very much for your positive feedback.
We are looking forward welcoming you again in Villa Crete.
