We are a Danish family of 2 adults and 2 boys aged 11 and 8 who stayed at the villa for 2 weeks during the summer of 2014. We have used HomeAway 5-6 times before and this villa is the best rental we have tried.
Villa is located 3-4 km outside the center of Chania. We had a rental car which was very convenient but not a must. There are two super markets (Lidl & Inka) 300m away. Nearest beach is about 500m away and very nice with fine sand and nearby cliffs where you can walk. Also in walking distance are 3-4 restaurants which we frequently visited. So overall the location of the villa is very good and from the huge terrasse on the 1. floor you have a beautiful view of mountains on one side and the sea on the other.
The villa has a very good size for 4 persons. Two bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms, one toilet, kitchen and a large living room. Each bedroom and the living room have an a/c unit so even though temperature outside can reach 35d, you can make it very comfortable inside.
Villa has two pools, one regular and one small one for babies. We only used the regular which is approx 4,5x4m and with a water depth of about 1,45m. Very fine size for our two boys who used the pool a lot!
The owner, Andreas, lives close by and is very very helpful with anything we might need. There were two cleaning ladies coming about three times a week. Might not be the most thorough cleaning but your towels and sheets get changed.
Overall, we were extremely pleased with the villa. A few more utensils in the kitchen would be nice and a few other minor things could be better but it does not change our view that the villa is indeed a dream villa. It comes highly recommended :-)
