The perfect villa for family vacation
One of the best villas we have ever stayed
We travelled in Crete with our family in August and stayed in Villa Giakoumakis for a week which we had the most wonderful stay!
A first class villa that was perfect for our family, big rooms, lots of space and very clean!
The swimming pool is incredible, we spent a lot of relaxing time there and at the Jacuzzi alongside of it.
Also from the pool area we enjoyed unique views of the sunset every evening.
The villa has many seating options for everybody for all the occasions and there is also an amazing barbecue area that we enjoyed preparing our meals.
The gardens surrounding the house were equally spacious and perfectly kept. We enjoyed walking there and we even tasted fruits from the trees. I personally spent some relaxing time on the hammock in the garden.
We used the bikes that were available in the villa for some rides around the area and some of us also took advantage of the fully equipped gym area for some exercises.
Additionally, the location of the villa was perfect. It is very close to Rethymno centre, only 5 - 10 minutes by car and at the same time it is far from the city noise and gives you the feeling that you are far from the crowd. We had 100% privacy and no one could disturb our relaxing holiday.
Lastly, Rethymno area is a perfect choice as it is located in the centre of Crete and gives you the chance to discover the whole island.
We want to thank again the owner and etouri (management team) for their services and kindness, we will be back again!
The house is perfect for a large family.
There is a beautiful large garden, with enough seats and sunbeds for everybody to find a comfortable place. The house is very spaceous and we found everything we needed. We had a great time, and especially the kids enjoyed it very much.
Fantastic villa that's perfect for families
Absolutely as described, the owner and agents are very helpful and the villa is fully kitted out with enough toys and games to keep kids entertained. I appreciated the security and cleanliness with daily maid service and occasional visits from the owner to check that we had everything we needed. We used the airport transfer recommended by Kostas which was reliable and comfortable including child seats. A hire car is useful for shopping trips but the main beach is only a 15 min walk so not needed all the time. Would definitely return when next in Crete.
Great Family Villa
As the previous reviews say this was exactly as expected, from the photographs. The pool is really great, set in a very well landscaped garden of trees, flowers and vegetables offering lovely views of the ocean. The villa is top class - stylish, very clean and well maintained. We had food prepared and delivered by the owner for our arrival which was delicious and very welcoming after a journey with young children. Thereafter, the owner and the agency staff were always available at the end of the phone or email for anything needed. We tried one or two of the recommended places to eat in the pretty old town of Rethymno, which also didn't disappoint.
The only little niggle which would have made our stay slightly more relaxing is a few more soft play mats within the house for the babies. Although the marble floors are lovely and cool they are not very forgiving when little ones, who are still a bit unsteady on the feet and knees, want to wander around. You also need to be watchful of the sharp edges on the coffee tables in the lounge too. Older children and adults obviously have no need to worry!
All in all we had a wonderful family holiday, thank you so much for our lovely stay.
Beautiful villa and perfect for all age groups
The villa was exactly as we expected with fantastic large pool in lovely gardens and luxury extras. The outside eating areas were a surprise and we especially enjoyed the pizza oven. The owners were very attentive and the daily maid service was excellent.
Our highly aesthetic luxurious villa is built on a round structure on the green hill of St. Mark in a 5,400 m² range and is located in the eastern part of Rethymno town. It is 1 km away from Rethymno's marvellous beach and just 3.5 km away from the center of the old town of Rethymno.
Built on a three level footprint of 500 m² it makes for a peaceful oasis offering a high standard of accommodation.
The great view over the Cretan Sea combined with the spectacular views of Psiloritis and the Lefka Ori mountains can be enjoyed from all angles of the villa. This accommodation is definitely a tempting suggestion for families or large group vacations, offering not only an outstanding holiday experience full of calm and relaxation but also full privacy.
PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on Homeaway affiliate websites, depending on their categorized locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
