Superb holiday home

We stayed at Kera Villa for a wonderful 2 weeks. We are a family of 4 with 2 young boys (6 and 8). The villa is wonderfully spacious, with spectacular views across the sea and mountains, that you never tire of. There is plenty of space for children to play inside when they have had enough of the wonderful pool, the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need.
We ate outside several times, but inside is a large dining room table to eat at or play cards etc. the roof terrace has wonderful views, but we didn't use it much, preferring to sit on the front terrace nearer the sea.
We used Almerida beach a lot, which is great for children and people watching, and we ate out many times in the waterfront tavernas, one of my favourite things was that all of the restaurants are literally on the water.
The beach at Georgeopolis (sp) is worth a visit, as is Rethymnon, but best of all was the shopping and harbour at Chania.
We also thoroughly enjoyed a speedboat trip from Almerida that takes you around the caves in the area and gives you the opportunity to snorkel and jump from the boat into the crystal clear water.(Dream Adventure Tours)
Pattie was very helpful answering all my questions promptly and thoroughly and giving lots of useful information. Gren, Gill/Sylv and David the gardener/handyman were all very pleasant and helpful.
We would wholeheartedly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to experience the beauty of Crete and a marvellous holiday home. We would suggest that air conditioning is installed in the bedrooms however as the heat in August was oppressive even at night.
Thank you Pattie and Mick, we will certainly consider returning, :-)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 'excellent' review! We are delighted that you all enjoyed a great holiday at Kera Villa. We want all our guests to enjoy its stunning views, relaxing & quiet setting, the nearby super beaches and great range of tavernas and local attractions - as you have clearly done.
We always take the trouble to check whether the villa is going to be suitable for all our guests and are happy to answer any questions they may have. With its location on an unfenced cliff edge + with a roof terrace and gardens not suitable for lively children or ball games we only accept children after parents have confirmed that this setting is safe and appropriate for their children. This also helps to maintain our high standards both inside and outside the villa.
It is our intention to consider installing air conditioning in the two bedrooms, with a local additional charge for its use because, as electricity charges increase and with our concern for the environment, we would want it to be used only when really necessary. Some guests may not want or need to use it and so it seems unfair to increase the rental cost for all.
Pattie + Mick
