A wonderful vacation in a fully equipped apartment
Our stay in Villa Michaela was very comfortable, the service was above our expectations! The apartment had everything what you would need - fully equipped kitchen, clean bed linen, spacious living room and short walk to the sea.
We also wanted to say positive remarks to manager Valia for all suggestions and answering all our questions, to Eleana, who greeted us warmly in the apartment.
Thank you for making our stay very pleasant and cozy.
Wish you all the best and hope to come to Plakias once more!
Dear Gertruda, thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our apartment! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Plakias is amazingly beautiful, so is the apartment.
We had a fantastic week in Plakias!
The apartment was incredibly clean, everything was working and both the agency and the owner where extremely helpful when we needed them!
Thank you for the roses, my wife loved them, and thank you for all the info provided on the island, it was the first time for us in Crete and we do want to come back!
Again thank you Eleanna and Valia!
Dear Sergio, thank you for writing such great things about our apartment and services! We hope to have the chance to host you again in the future! Regards, ThinkVilla Team!
we are generally satisfied with this apartment, well placed and clean. Some remarks however:
the kitchen was under equipped in hardware, only one set of keys
wifi out of order
Your colleague was very kind, nice and effective on the first point, but the wireless operation could be established.
The apartment was clearly not finalized (inoperative switches, unsafe electrical son)
And thank you to you.
We would like to thank you for taking the time to review your stay in our Villa and we truly appreciate your feedback.
We would like to add that, as far as the Internet connection is concerned, there was a malfunction that didn’t affect just the apartment but also the whole area. However the owner tried his best when you asked for support and provided you all the additional objects you requested such as the second set of keys. Also I would like to add that there wasn’t any dangerous, exposed cable but the electrical window switch was broken and the owner asked you if you wish to call a craftsman to fix it, because he didn’t want to disturb you, and you agreed.
Everyone has tried their very best to be as attentive and supportive as possible when you asked for immediate support. And was a pleasure for us to do so. The fact that you forgot your keys inside the house is an example that could happen to all of us. The vital part is, that we provided you with immediate support within few hours when requested and would be happy to do so again in the future.
In addition, we would like to add that some damages were caused during your stay, for which the owner didn’t charge you anything.
Hope this feedback would be valuable to comprehend our part also. Allow us also to reassure you that we are all as a team seeking to exceed guest expectations staying with us & our main priority is to make all our guests happy and feel at home.
Once again thank you very much for your feedback.
Looking forward to seeing you again coming back "home" soon.
Schönes, geräumiges Haus am Ende der Bucht mit tollem Blick auf Meer, Berge und den am anderen Ende der Bucht liegenden Ort Plakias. Gute Taverne, Strandbar und Strand in 2min Fußweg. Bei unserem Aufenthalt im Oktober oft sehr windig auf Balkon und Terrasse.
Dear Josef , we are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcome you "home" again! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Wir haben uns in dem schönen Appartement sehr wohl gefühlt.
Alles war sehr sauber. Die Nähe zum feinsandigem breitem Strand mit schöner Strandbar ist kaum zu überbieten. Sehr ruhige Lage am Ende des Ortes mit tollem Blick über die wunderschöne Plakias Bay. Die Stadt ist gut zu Fuss zu erreichen.
Unbedingt zu empfehlen!!
Dear Sibylle, thank you so much for recommending our apartment to other travellers and we hope to have you back soon! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Michaela apartment is located in Plakias that is set towards the centre of a large bay enclosed within the arms of mountains, on the north coast.
Plakias is a popular tourist resort. Originally a very small and quiet fishing village, and it now offers a range of amenities. Plakias is renowned for it’s natural beauty, providing all the facilities that a visitor could wish for. Along the main road of the village there are several supermarkets, bakeries, ATM machines, post office, a doctor’s office, restaurants, tavernas, cafes and beach bars while on the beach there are tamarisk trees, water sports, beach volley courts, snack bars and other shops offer a very wide range of products, including local and traditional goods.
The beach is sandy and very well organised with sun beds, umbrellas, changing rooms, showers, etc. The rocks surrounding the beach are ideal for fishing and snorkelling, as well. The road along the beach is also ideal for walking or cycling.
Plakias makes a good starting point for walks along the coast to Souda, or up into the encircling hills to other villages such as Sellia or Mirthios, which boasts spectacular sea views out to sea. A good coastal motor track runs west beyond Plakias, leading to Souda, Rodakino, Frangokastello and Sfakia beaches. There are plenty of walks locally, and bolder walkers will enjoy the high green countryside beyond the coastal mountain range north of town. Mountain biking and cycle touring are other local attractions.
