About the property

Villas with 8 bedroom, 5 minutes drive to Rethymno town and beach!

Paradise Villa is approved by Greek Tourism Organization with license number: 1041K91003013001.

Located in a small beautiful village of Prines, only 5 min drive away from Rethymno town and it’s sandy beaches, Paradise Villa is the best choice for large groups or for 2-3 friendly families!

It is two independent attached houses with a garden and pool and you can rent only as one! The two story buildings in the total of 335 m² can accommodate 18 people in beds. We believe that its rich facilities such as private pool, hot tub, pool table and gym equipment will amuse all of our guests with different interests.

Also the fact that you can only rent both buildings together offers you the advantage of both having vacations with friends and having your private place for you and your own family!

By staying in our villa, you will also love the location and the sea view from the balconies, in addition to the fact that it is very spacious.

Each building contains a big living room area with a dining table and a fully equipped kitchen, 3 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms! That means that you will stay in a villa with 2 living rooms, 2 kitchens, 2 dining areas, 6 bathrooms and 8 bedrooms.

Finally the villa has one game room with pool table and one gym room with full equipment!

Outdoor area of the villa has one big yard in front of the house with a parking area for more than 4 cars and there also has some outdoor toys for young children. On the other side of the building you will find a garden with the swimming pool, one hot tube for 8 persons and the barbecue, all of them equipped with outdoor furniture. The garden is fenced and offers privacy from any angle.

Ideal villa for large groups! Private pool, Hot Tube! 5 min away from Rethymno!
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

It is a perfect place to stay for a family of 14 like ours; it could easily accommodate more

  • 5 of 5

The villa(s) is/are beautifully situated and well equipped, the view is superb. We appreciated the warm welcome. We liked the swimming-pool and heated outdoor whirl-bath, the billiards-room and the gym. It was much more than we had expected and certainly worth the money.

The best holiday and nicest villa i've been too

  • 5 of 5

I took a university mountaineering group to the island and we stayed at Villa Paradise. The club normally goes away every year to another country to climb. This year the accommodation (Villa Paradise) we stayed at was the best hands down.

The manager of the property gave me a lot of guidance about Crete, which really made our stay less stressful.

The owners daughter was very kind and made us feel very welcome. We had complimentary wine, olive oil, fruits and snacks. The Villa was very clean and tidy. If we had any problems the owners daughter sorted it out straight away.

Overall this was the best holiday and was the least stress free I've had booking accommodation in the UK and abroad.

Great place for a holiday with a group

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a great holiday in Crete. The villa (actually two villa's that are connected) is well maintained and well equipped and suitable for a large group of up to 18 people. It has a nice swimming pool, hot tub, pool table, gym, BBQ, playhouse and slide for toddlers, and parking space for multiple cars. Both the owner and the property manager are very friendly and helpful and the communication went very smoothly as they both speak English really well. Bed linnen and towels were frequently changed during our stay and the owner even made an appointment to clean the Villa during our stay, which was really appreciated.

The villa is located in a small village with a nice Taverna. Rethymno, supermarkets and nice quiet sandy beaches are nearby as well.

Great villa, great location, great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the villa, absolutely massive, and for a group of 14 it was amazing. The pool was great, but it was a shame that the hot tub was broken at the time we stayed (didn't really miss it though). Kitchens were both very well equipped, and the BBQ was great. The views from the balcony were insane and made every evening special. Very clean, and the air con was a god send. I would definitely recommend staying at Villa Paradise.

It is worth getting a car for trips to the supermarket and to the beaches. Rethymno is a lovely town as well, but we found the buses turned up when they wanted to, rather than following the timetable, so having a car was very helpful. Taxis were also very cheap so if you wanted a night out in Rethymno without a designated driver, you don't have to worry about taxi prices.

Thank you from all of us!

excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were first guests of villa Paradise and I want to say that it was real Paradise! first of all hospitality of the owner - Amilia was very friendly, helpful and attentive. She took me by the car to show surroundings, shops, beaches etc. Also she brought everything for our 3 babies.

About the house: it is very big and beautiful! kitchen is well equipped, everything was new and clear. Pool was also very clean and comfortable. children have spent a lot of time there!

There were a lot of wide and tranquil beaches not far then 15 min by car. Also we have walked in Rethimno and it was very nice.

i will highly recommend villa Paradise to everyone who wants to visit Crete!

4) The organised barbecue area for big groups and the dinning areas for many people.

5) The location of the villa which is next to a living area where you can find all kinds of shops (Atsipopoulo Village) and also be only 5 minutes away from Rethymno city and the beach!

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Review copied from tripadvisor) :

Two weeks sent with three families kids ranging from 21 down to 11

Area was fabulous. Rethymno was beautiful and surrounding beaches excellent Villa was fine spotless and everything you need photos don't really do it justice especially outside

Special thanks to the owner who could not have been a better host the villa was cleaned thoroughly three tines and Amelia was always available

Overall Crete in general and this villa in particular both highly recommended

Paradise Villa is situated outside the beautiful city of Rethymno, on the traditional village of Prines, where you can find some excellent taverns and a mini market!

Prines is 7 km away from Rethymno centre, only 5 km away from the sea and 2 km away from the village Atsipopoulo, a well known village which has grown up fast in last 10 years and now is actually a small town and a suburb of Rethymno city.

There is nothing that you cannot find in Atsipopoulo nowadays as it has all kinds of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, many restaurants and services.

Staying in Prines village you have the advantage of staying in the country side and be only a few minutes away from big markets, shops and the beach!

The village itself is beautiful with many vegetations and olive tree forests. It is ideal for those who love nature, peace and quiet it can offer.

Finally the location is giving you the possibility to visit many sightseeing and beaches in both North and South Crete!

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
