Fantastic villa with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Naya. From start to finish everything was handled very efficiently. The owner Natassha met us on arrival to explain how things worked etc. She even ordered us a take- away pasta/pizza from a local restaurant as we arrived late. There was gluten-free pasta for my son who is a coeliac. We had a couple of problems with the TV & aircon but they were sorted very quickly. The villa is spotless and very well maintained, providing little extras that you don't usually get. Its location is really good and you can get taxis easily to and from the old town for 6 euros. The games room is fantastic and we all enjoyed the pool table and table tennis. The beds were very comfortable and it was lovely to have fresh bedding and towels every few days. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and were looked after very well. Thanks to Natassha for our home- made pastries and the gluten-free cookies for my son, so thoughtful. The reason I have not given it 5 stars is that the kitchen was very small for a villa of its size and it could do with some softer lighting in the gazebo dining area. However this doesn't detract from how good this villa is. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Villa Naya

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two weeks in the most fantastic Villa Naya in Rethymnon Crete 6 adults and 4 children age range from 12 years to 3 years.The Villa had something for everyone.Fabulous views of Rethymnon castle and harbour.A wonderful pool hot tub,table tennis,a pool table multi gym.A cinema room where the kids could retreat to when it got to hot and a great undercover B.B.Q.area again with great views an ideal place to watch the fabulous sunsets.The Villa was ideally situated to be able to walk to the beach 10 to 15 mins.and the old town just a little further.I would recommend a car if you have young children as there is a bit of a climb back to the Villa.Although Taxis from the old town were only 6 euros for 4 people.Natasha the owner was brilliant nothing to much trouble.We arrived late past 10 pm but she had already brought us the basics to enable us to get breakfast the next morning also she arrived on the first morning with a box full of croissants and pastries.She also went out of her way to retrieve a child's buggy we had somehow left at Chania airport,as well as lending us one of her own.

From the moment we first enquired about the villa Kostas from Etouri vacation rental management was exceptionally proffesional giving us all the information we required any email we sent was replied to within a couple of hours.On our last day we had to vacate the Villa by 11am as there were other guests arriving and our flight was not till 21 30pm.Kostas recommended that we should go to tha Baya beach club.There we could spend the day leave our luggage have a meal and shower.Also have our airport transfer pick us up from there.When we arrived to our surprise he had arranged for us to have a cabana beside the beach iced water soft drinks for the kids and a bottle of wine all complimentary.

Sophia also of Etouri was our direct contact in Rethymnon again nothing was to much trouble she was so helpful arranging the transfers and excursions and and solving any problem that occurred.

We would highly recommend both the Villa and would definitely use Etouri for booking in the future.

Everything we could have wished for

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Villa Naya and would go back without question. We are 2 families with 7 of us in total which meant the children could have their own rooms and there was plenty of space for us all not to be on top of each other. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble to organise. We had arranged for Chef Stelios to cook for us on the first night, his traditional Cretan menu was just perfect and fed us all for lunch the next day too. We discovered the old town very quickly and spent most nights eating in beautiful Tavernas and walking the quaint cobbled streets. Would highly recommend Avli and Petite Fleur for food.

Sophia organised a day at Baja Beach which was great and very unexpected. Most days though we stayed at the beautiful Villa as everything is just perfectly laid out for lazy days by the pool.

Thank you to the whole team who made our first family holiday to Crete very memorable for all the right reasons. We will definately be back.

Beautiful family villa in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, luxury villa in a superb location. The villa was outstanding in every way and was everything we could wish for. It had a stunning pool area, a great games and cinema room to keep the young ones entertained and more importantly, fantastic views from almost every room in the house. Kostas and Sophia looked after us so well during our stay too.

What an amazing place

  • 5 of 5

From booking right to the end of our stay everything was perfect. Kostas the agent was really helpful and responded really quickly to my questions. The owner John was there to meet us and show us how everything worked he couldn't have been more helpful.

The villa itself is amazing, it has been kitted out to a very high standard we couldn't really find fault in anything. We had a wide range of ages from 2 years to 72 years and everyone was catered for, the cinema room was a particular hit for some time out of the sun for the kids, and the hot tub was well used in the evenings watching the sunset. All of the rooms are excellent and the kitchen is well stocked. The automatic black out shutters even meant that our 2 year old had a lie in most mornings which was a bonus!!

Natasha the owner popped in with the cleaners during our stay to check everything was ok and even brought us some samosas The cleaners were really friendly and did a great job.

Location wise the villa is really secluded, we didn't feel like we had to keep the noise down and the views are just out of this world. You can get to a large supermarket in around 5 min down one path out of the villa. It does take a little longer on the way back up and it is quite steep. There was also a fantastic cake shop at the bottom which made the hill worth while. To the other side of the villa is another road which takes around 10 mins to reach the main road and the beach. The grandparents struggled with the hill a little but we all still agreed we didn't need a car and we manged ok with the pushchair up and down. You can have a nice stroll and reach the old town in around 20 min.

On departure our flight was late in the evening, Natasha very kindly arranged with the cleaners to start in the bedrooms so that we could stay later in the apartment around the pool. Sophia the agent helped us to book a taxi and stored our cases so we could have lunch out prior to our departure. We couldn't all fit in the taxi so Natasha the owner actually gave 4 of us a lift and even let us use her sons car seat.

We would return to this villa and would recommend it to anyone.

Thank you to John, Natasha, Kostas and Sophia for making our stay so perfect.

But best of all, the local people! Kind, helpfull at anytime you need it, polite, friendly. Unfortunatly that is remarkable in these volatile times!

Thanks Sophia, Natasa and Kostas, you all made this holiday a great succes?
