Apartments in Panormo, Rethymnon, Crete, Greece - Ten Minute Walk To Fishing Village, Harbor And Sandy Beaches
About John Goodwin
My wife Robyn and I live in the South of England in the New Forest. We fell in love with Greece and the lifestyle 30 years ago. For the last 25 years I have run my own Greek property Consultancy. I have been involved in the design and construction of over 100 Greek properties specializing in Crete and the island of Alonissos.
Why John Goodwin chose Mylopotamos
Over the years we have gained a wealth of experience in the Greek property business. When the land became available it ticked all the boxes as the perfect location to build luxury high quality villas and apartments. My wife and I personally own 2 apartments at Panorama Seafront Homes which we rent out and take regularly holiday there with our family and friends. We kept the 3 apartments because we knew we could rent them out easily. Our plan is to live there for several months of the year when we retire. If you decide to holiday in one of our apartments I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
Panorama Seafront Homes stand just meters from the sea, You have the choice of swimming in the pool or at one of the sandy beaches. We just love the 10 minute evening stroll to enjoy the food in the wonderful traditional tavernas in Panormo village. The apartment where designed by one of Greece's top architects and the interiors are modern and fitted out to a very high standard that you wont see elsewhere in Crete. As most apartments are privately owned holiday homes the pool is never overcrowded, some days you get it all to your self. We always take a trip by bus, ferry boat or hire car to Rethymno old town and harbour front is full of life and one can spend hours walking around the narrow lanes window shopping, there is a great choice of restaurants and lively bars to suit all tastes
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Great Poolside Apartment
All as advertised. Apartment clean, modern, bright & very well equipped for 4 people. Good service. Well positioned near traditional Greek Village with restaurants , beaches and activities close by. Public transport easily accessible.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to family & friends.
Thank you for your review. We look forward to welcoming you back in the not to distant future.
We have had a lovely weeks stay at Appartment no’s 8. It is just as described and is beautiful and clean and well equipped. The pool area is great. Really suitable if you have young children. Clean and well maintained and always easy to get a sun bed and umbrella! There is a small shop just outside the complex and other supermarkets in the village (which is a 10 minute walk away). There are lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance and all do good food and drink. I have to admit we didn’t do much sightseeing in the local area as the weather was so beautiful we spent it by the pool and going to a couple of the local (recommended) beaches. We were very lazy!! A good excuse to return and see some sights next time!!
Booking was easy and I got lots of information from the owner before we went.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We look forward to welcoming you to stay again.
Lovely property on a well designed complex
We come to the village most years, but this is the first time we have stayed on this complex. Apartment number 8 is comfortable, well furnished and very clean. We especially liked the electric shutters which meant we slept well. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, and plenty of good cutlery, crockery and utensils. The bathroom and shower stall are small, but were absolutely fine for us. The pools and surrounding area are lovely - well designed and beautifully maintained (cleaned early every morning), with loads of room for sunbeds. We came the first week of June, and it was pretty quiet, which we really appreciated. It is a short, easy walk into the village (which was closer than I had imagined) and we of course visited all our favourite restaurants and bars. A new supermarket has opened, and is virtually next door to the complex, so it was very easy to pop out quickly for anything we had run short of. There is plenty of room to park outside. All the comms with John were excellent, and he sent us very good directions before we arrived, as well as useful information beforehand on where to go and what to do in the area. Thoroughly recommended.
Thank you for your review. We are very pleased you enjoyed staying in our apartment and appreciated all the information I sent you. We would love to welcome you back in the not to distant future.
Great apartment with fantastic pool area and close to beautiful village
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Panorama Seafront apartments. The apartment itself was very well equipped with everything we needed and the pool area was amazing. It was also very convenient to be walking distance to the village, which had plenty of very nice tavernas with delicious food. Another big plus was all the information we received beforehand with directions, instructions and recommendations. It was really helpful and ensured we could enjoy our time from day one.
Thank you for your great review. We are very pleased you found our information pack helpful. We have been traveling to Crete for 28 years so we put our favourite places within an easy 45 minute drive down hoping you would enjoy them as much as we have. We look forward to welcoming you back in the not to distant future.
Week in Crete 4th to 11th Oct 2017
Great holiday - apartment is just perfect. Great size, plenty of space, excellent standard of furnishing and fittings and what a fabulous location. We loved the fact that we could see the sheep and lambs in the filed next door, it was quiet and peaceful yet within an easy 15 min of the village centre.
Would thoroughly reommend this to anyone looking for a quiet week of rest, relaxation and recuperation!
Thank you John and Robyn - your apartment made our holiday!
Thank you for your great review, so pleased you enjoyed the apartment,pool and location.
Hope to welcome you back in the not to distant future
Enjoyed every minute
The apartment was perfect for us with enough space for 4 adults. The kitchen was well equipped and we found everything we needed. On arrival everything went like clockwork using the taxi hire sent to us on the link and the key safe system. Our shopping had arrived and was in the fridge. The information sent by email covered everything we needed to know ( I was surprised by a previous review saying there was no information ?) and we ate at all the recommended restaurants. If I could suggest one small thing ? a dishcloth and tea towel would have been useful for keeping the kitchen area clean - tiny thing that did not spoil our enjoyment of a lovely apartment, pool and resort. Hopefully we will visit again, perfect distance from UK for a late summer break.
Thank you for your great review and feedback, apologies regarding Tea towel and dishcloth, it must have been missed by the cleaners.
Kind regards John & Robyn
