The most wonderful part of our trip was coming to the Rock Houses Villa. More beautiful that the pictures, but the best part was meeting the wonderful host family. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your beautiful Villa and your warm, kind hospitality. You have made our trip a most memorable one and we look forward to the day we are able to repay your generosity. The memories you have given us will be ours for a lifetime. But we are most grateful for your friendship.
We can hardly wait to return!!!
The villa was just the right size for us and had everything we needed, maybe the kitchen needs a couple of kitchen ware. Only the one pot was not enough for us with three children, but we managed with some creativity. Anyway, the whole experience was splendid. The villa is just enough away that it's secluded and quiet, although it stands 20m from the main road with shops, bars etc. The proximity to everything is just great, if you want to go dining is just a couple of minutes away, if you need bread for you breakfast or something else is also a few minutes away, if you want to swim in the sea it's 5 min from the house, so practicaly you are in the middle of everything but still far away for the peace. The house is just our style, rock and wood and small details that make it homey. When we weren't around the island we spent all of our time in the pool and the patio, where you can lay all day in the shade with a nice breeze. The whole area was to our liking with the restaurants that served very good food to little shops and bars. All in all - 11 out of 10!
Our first impression of Villa Melody more than lived up to our expectation.
After a nice warm welcome we very quickly settled into what we felt was just like home.A truly peaceful oasis but with all the amenities of Platanias on your doorstep without being intrusive.
Well worth experiencing a visit to the Rock House bar for a good rocking night.
Certainly on our list to revisit the villa and would recommend it without hesitation.
Me and my two daughters had a fantastic week in Villa Melody. It is a fantastic villa, It has a very nice garden with a private pool. The pergola is underful, we spent the warm evenings out there. It is a few steps to the center with a lot of shops and restaurants and a few minutes walk to the beach. The villa was clean and well equiped and has a good wifi. A really recomened this villa!
The stay at the Villa Melody was simply perfect! This place has all of the amenities that you could ask for. A very comforting place just to relax and enjoy your holiday without all of the noise of a hotel or beach resort. The owners, Yioula & Agis are exceeding nice and let you know all about what the area has to offer in regards to activities and sights to see and will even arrange transportation for you.
The beach is just around the corner and is pretty nice if that's your thing but thats not why we came to Crete. We came to see the sights, history and culture of the island(which there is plenty of).
If your like us, go to
The Samaria Gorge - Excellent hike from the mountains to the sea in the south.
Elafonisi - if you want the best of the beach experience in the south.
Knossos - for the Minoan ruins in the east
Gramvousa in the west (we did not have time to go but well worth the trip according to Yioula).
After you experience one of these long day trips and you arrive back at the Villa Melody, you are in heaven!! Take a nice dip in the private pool or a hop in the Jacuzzi tub with all of the quiteness and relaxation of home. You really do feel your at home!
This was one vacation that my wife and I will never forget. Our expectations were beyond exceeded! Make sure you go over and jam out to the best music on Crete at the Rock House which is right next door. The beauty of it is that you will never hear the noise while sipping Raki or Ouzo in the pool or on your patio. Agis will play anything you want from 11pm-5am. The man is wild! He is a spinning machine!
Thanks Yioula & Agis for sharing your wonderful Villa with us! We hope to see you in the future!!!
After being apart for 5 and a half months, we wanted somewhere special that could be a quiet, peaceful time to make memories. Rock Houses' Melody filled our wishes. Quiet time together restful peaceful time inside and out on patio. Sharing of your time and culture with us is priceless. Memories made that will last a lifetime and let us smile as they are sealled as we look at pictures, eat the food from my cookbooks (if I can find similar ingridients) and talk with family about our trip.

Rock House Villa is in the most touristic village of Chania prefecture, Platanias. It is only 3 minutes walking distance from a sandy beach which is unfolded in an extent of many kilometers and in which the visitor enjoys moments of relaxation in isolated beaches, moments of adventure with water sports in the well-organized beaches or moments of frantic amusement in innumerable beach bars. Precisely in front of the villas the magnificent port of Platanias is found, a small Marina that entertains fishing boats and tourist boats. From there you might visit, with a small boat that makes daily trips, the islet “Thodorou” precisely opposite Platanias in which the unique kri - kri (cretan wild goat) are protected, you can swim in splendid waters round the islet, and you can also enjoy diving, snorkeling and boat rides in innumerable other points of the gulf.
