There is not a single thing I could change, add or suggest to improve upon this rental. My only regret is that I wish we could have stayed for a month! We enjoyed the house so much that we opted to stay home and relax for several days rather than explore the island. It is incredibly spacious and could easily accommodate a large family with plenty of peace and privacy. The photos seemed too good to be true but in fact it was even better than we had hoped for. The kitchen was VERY well equipped with everything clean and new. The pool and jacuzzi area is luxurious with modern and comfortable furnishings. The master suite was lovely, the bed as comfortable as home, and it had a remarkable view to the sea. The back bedrooms look out on pretty vineyards. There were four! different places to sit for a family meal in the house - 2 inside and 2 outside - including a charming terrace in the back with a pizza oven. One of the best aspects was the nearby beach taverna Mithimna - good vibes and good food with an extensive menu (they will deliver too!). The beach in front of the house was mellow with great waves for body surfing and free umbrellas and beach recliners (a rarity for Greece in our experience). The owners were so welcoming and friendly (thank you so much Eleftheria and Michael!).
Our excursions included the picturesque Venetian Harbor in Chania for dinner and shopping, Elafonisi beach which was beautiful and unique, and a drive around the rugged western coast to a tiny cafe perched on a cliffside where we shared our ice cream at our table with an inquisitive donkey named Petrulla. Then right back home to our lovely villa.
My only warning is...if you like noise and crowds, don't stay here!
