Dear Anna, thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Really beautiful, peaceful villa. The property was very clean and the pool maintained every morning. The owners were very attentive. The only disappointment was that the description said the villa was a short 10min walk to the beach, when in fact it took close to half an hour; however the management very quickly amended the description on the website when I pointed this out to them. I really would recommend Villa Anemone to anyone looking for a bit of relaxation!
Wonderful relaxing summer holiday
Beautiful villa with great views. Owners were very attentive and kept the villa very clean for us. We had a very relaxing, quiet holiday which was just what we needed.
Excellent villa for a relaxing week away
We really enjoyed our stay in Real Dream Villas. The villa itself was immaculate and had all of the modern applications you could wish for. It was so peaceful and the view of the mountains and the coast were beautiful.
The pool is very nice for cooling off or wallowing in, and I personally enjoyed using the BBQ during the stay.
You are a decent walk from the town centre (25 mins downhill), but O’Katis is a welcome rest stop on the way back up if you choose to walk back (which we did a few times). It’s fairly easy to get to Heraklion or Rethymno if you have a car, but be warned that the driveway is very narrow so a big car would be tricky to manage!
Bali is a nice place to go to with plenty of beaches/restaurants so there is plenty of choice, although we thought there were better beaches slightly further afield. The owners son Manos works in Porto Paradiso which is a nice bar and he was a cool guy to chat to, and always brings you a shot at the end of your drinks!
The owners couldn’t have been nicer. We got a good welcome pack, but they were straight round when we failed to open our bedroom shutters to help us out. They also brought some really tasty sweet pastries in the middle of the week.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return.
Simply lovely Cretan villa
From the first minute when we arrived and met the lovely owner Riola until the very last minute when she smiled and waved goodbye...we had the most lovely time in a superbly equipped and spacious villa...the outside gardens and pool area are a joy of relaxation with the most stunning views of Bali bay and the sea.
We would recommend this villa to anyone looking to escape and chill in the sunshine of Crete...the abundance of tavernas shops and bars located within 4 bay areas of this lovely area add to the quality of a holiday here.
We are a very fit couple and thought we could survive the walk from the villa to the bay!...however whilst the walk down is fairly gentle the walk back up hill is challenging in the sunshine...therefore we opted after a couple of days to rent a local hire car..we used Giorgio the brother of the owner who runs Bali auto in the village...the car was delivered to the villa and we left it there when we departed...the price was amazing and a lovely local company to deal with....we travelled inland visiting local villages which is a must...including the Meldoni cave complex which was fabulous....take the pirate ship Santa Maria from the bay to Rethymno a lovely trip with plenty of time in this splendid town to explore.
The pool is cleaned daily and Riola popped in every 3rd day to clean the villa from top to bottom...leaving cakes as a nice surprise..
Thank you Riola and all the family for a memorable and lovely holiday....

Dear Keith and Sally , thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Perfect setting. Very peaceful
The villa was amazing with beautiful views of the mountains and sea. You definitely need a car though to get the best of the area. We ate most nights in Bali- lots to choose from. Overall one of the best holidays we've had
Dear Keith, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Dream Villas are located just 3 minutes away, by car, from Bali village which was a small fishing village, but over the years has become a charming touring village, overlooking the little fishing harbour and the sea. It is a very attractive and romantic place, combining sea and mountains. Life is easy going enjoying the sun and the clear calm sea at a number of sandy and shingly beaches. Bali is a modern seaside resort, which offers a large choice of taverns ,restaurants, a bakery, an ATM machine, super markets, a butchery and cheese shop, as well as a wide variety of little shops, diving school, bars and discos.
Bali is accessible from any part of the island. It is ideal for family and romantic holidays. Bali has four beaches, which are formed in sandy coves with nice greenish waters. The beaches are almost always calm, since the direction of Bali is western. They all are suitable for children and well organised. Moreover, buses from Heraklion and Rethymnon run to Bali. Furthermore, from the local harbour, excursion boats run daily to Rethymnon. The passengers have the chance to admire a unique coastline with beautiful caves and rock formations.
Also Panormo, is a friendly sea side village, 10 minutes away by car and well know for its sandy beaches. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds & umbrellas. Water sports are also available. The harbour beach in front of the village is the port of the area, where the boats tie up, this beach is unorganised.
The village has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.
Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.
