lovely villa with helpful owner
We had a lovely week in Crete end of October - the villa was larger than the photos lead us to believe with quality furnishing and appliances throughout. The rooms are a very good size, the kitchen is well equipped, the bathrooms are great, too. Excellent WiFi connections helped to keep our teenagers entertained whilst in the villa.
Due to the slightly cooler weather end of October we didn't use the pool more than once and left the BBQ area untouched - but I can imagine it to be lovely during the hotter summer months.
Antonis, the owner, was extremely helpful throughout and answered all possible questions promptly. We arrived to find enough food and supplies to last the first few days - something we have not always experiences during other villa holidays and we really appreciated this. Antonis made us feel very welcome and even helped us to order some pizzas for the first night.
The area around the villa is nice, too, and it was very easy to reach beaches, towns and other sights by rental car.
Overall: a quality property with a very helpful owner. Would def. like to return one day.
Visited for the second year and again excellent!
Again we had a wonderful time in Villa Theano.
The house is fantastic! This year we had several friends over from Holland and Crete. Everybody was blown away by the architecture, the furniture, the equipment, the comfort, the view, etc. etc.
Owner Antonis Vergetakis is a very friendly person and takes care of everything!
We're already planning to go next year!
Perfect holiday in a perfect house
We loved the house. It has everything you need for a great holiday. The kitchen materials and utensils were of very good quality. the living room was cosy and spacious. all technical devices were functioning very well. all four bedroom were great with good beds. the bathrooms were spacious. the whirlpool was just great to relax as well as the rain shower in the other bathroom which has massage functions. The pool is large, pure and deep - good for a swim.
The house is children friendly, we came with two small kids (5 and 3): no sharp endings or steep stairs. We only had to watch out for the kids at the poolside since the water is 2,20m deep.
The beautiful town of Agios is only 5min with a car and has nice beaches, lots of cafes and restaurants and a nice shopping area where we all bought vacation hats :).
The location of the house is perfect as a starting point for excursions: We took daytrips to the zeus cave, Elounda, Ierapetra and some southern sides, Vai, Knossos and places in between. The Heraklion airport is only a 50min drive from the house.
Also, Antonis was extremely helpful. Not only did he pick us up to guide us to the house (it was already dark when we landed) but he also ordered food for us in the first night, fixed minor things in the house (wifi broke down for 2h and he immediately fixed it) and gave us tipps for beaches, restaurants and excursions.
It would be good to store some beach toys for families with kids so that new guests do not always have to buy the same things.
Fabulous villa, beautifully presented, great views
Thoroughly wonderful and relaxing holiday experience. Communications during booking with the owner, Antonis, were great and he organised our car providing excellent directions. We were met on arrival and given tips and advice on where to eat and visit. Villa was fantastic, everything you could possibly want. We spent most mealtimes in the under cover outdoor area and enjoyed the pool and games in the garden - in fact with the fab views it was hard sometimes to leave the villa to go out!! Located 2 minutes drive from Agios Nikolaos but a bit too far to walk however this was not a problem. Will definitely return :)
A great place for vacation
This is a modern villa, fully equipped with everything you need and more. The pool is fantastic and the BBQ area is outstanding. There is a great view from the rooms and it's a 5-minute drive from the beach. Overall, a great villa for a great vacation!
Delightful home from home
Its hard to choose the best elements of this villa as it is such an amazing place. The view from the villa is truly stunning and the villa itself is roomy and well laid out. There is plenty of space for the maximum of people due to the large living room, spacious patio and wonderful and enormous bbq area. The villa itself is packed with gadgets and mod cons so great for kids (though you might want to ask for a few instructions). On arrival there was a welcome gift of useful bits and bobs which came in handy as we arrived in the evening. However the best bit about the villa is Janis and Antonis. They couldn't do enough for us from help during the taxi strike to olive kindling for our bbq. The only thing I would advise is unless you are keen on walking, you may need a car for supplies. Ag Nic is walkable from the villa but it is a fair step.
Agios Nikolaos is located 65 kms from Heraklion A/P
