    "I would first like to thank our hosts Nikki and her mother. We couldn't have asked for better. They went well above and beyond our expectations. My friends and I had an awesome time at this property. This place is centrally located and near everything. The next time i'm in Chania, there is no question where I will be staying!! Thanks again Nikki for everything!!"

  • Lovely villa

    "We came back just a few days ago from Maleme. We spent two weeks and a half in Villa Helios and truly wish we could have stayed a lot longer. Not only was the house very comfortable and perfectly clean, the swimming pool impressive, the surroundings appealing, the village itself with its various supermarkets, restaurants and art workshops perfect for a vacation of that length, but the warm welcome and attendance of our hosts when we needed advice or suggestions as to the best places to visit in the area were more than what we expected. Maria and Michael are the most charming hosts we ever met. Our vacation would have never been so successful without them. We truly hope to be able to go back to Maleme to spend time in their lovely Villa Helios again, and see them both again."

  • Nice apartment; busy resort

    "My husband and I stayed here for ten nights in September. The spacious apartment is situated down a short unmade up single track road about five-ten minutes' stroll from nearest restaurants. It was fairly quiet if you can ignore the neighbour's dogs. The popular nearby beaches have free sun beds and umbrellas owned by the numerous restaurants but you are expected to buy food or drink from the establishments. For me the beach/es (one huge bay comprising of several parts) were too crowded and the people using the adjacent beds were close enough to read your book. However there were areas where you could put a towel down and get some privacy. Other, quieter or less commercialised beaches are a short car drive away. The apartment was clean and had a nice balcony (distant sea view over rooftops) and was equipped well although the kettle didn't work and there was insufficient cutlery for two (let alone four) when we arrived but this was quickly rectified by the owner when she visited us the next morning. The pool was not large but was cleaned on our first day. Plenty of sun loungers but I didn't see any parasols. We only used the area once. I was disappointed that the air conditioning was an additional cost, which is not made clear at any time prior to arrival (unless it was in the small print) so we suffered the heat. Likewise use of the safe, which was sunk into a bedroom wall, was subject to an additional charge (how much does a static safe cost to maintain apart from a lost key, which could be charged for?). Despite the negatives mentioned above, our stay at Despina Apartments was enjoyable and I would recommend it for couples or families looking for a holiday in a lively, friendly resort with a large variety of bars, restaurants and entertainment with a huge beach (partly sandy and partly light shingle) which is safe for swimmers (life guards are situated every few yards along the beach). We would return to Crete but not necessarily to Aghia Marina but it is a popular resort for many who return year after year."

  • Fantastic location, fantastic villa

    "My family and I stayed here for 2 weeks and enjoyed every aspect of the villa and Kalamaki village. The hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable and helped with tips and advice on the area and Crete in general. They were amazing. The villa is finished to a very high spec and equipped with everything you need. The location is superb with Kalamaki beach 150m away, tavernas, supermarkets and restaurants all within easy walking distance and Chania town a short taxi. Kalamaki and S&K Villas are far superior to the resorts down the road and I don't hesitate to recommend it."
