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 Rethymno

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 3 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

Enjoyed every minute

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the apartment was immaculate and clean, and our welcome pack was a blessing as we arrived late. The kitchen and laundry equipment were more than enough to cover a family’s needs. The furnishings and decor were of good quality and included large wardrobes and storage draws, giving ample storage. Our large sun terrace overlooked the swimming pools which provided for all ages from toddlers to adults. The local shops and Taverna's were a pleasant, short walk away. All in all, very pleased and great value for money !

Lovely apartment in beautifully maintained development

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect - a fully equipped large kitchen/living room and two good-sized bedrooms, all with air conditioning (which was much appreciated during the heatwave which occurred during our first week). Linen and towels were changed on day 7 and, to our surprise the lady also cleaned the apartment thoroughly, even taking away our collection of empty water bottles. There is a lovely terrace, with steps down to the pool which, again to our surprise, was supervised during the day. Nearest beach was 5 mins away, with two superb restaurants just a little further on. Stunning sunsets every night from the road to the side of the complex. All in all, and idyllic break.

Second trip! Excellent again! Thanks John

The property is comfortable, spacious (2 adults & 2 children), very clean and perfect for a family holiday. The terrace is lovely to sit and eat on, lunch or evening and the pool area is fantastic, especially for the kids. Very happy with our stay.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous week spent at this apartment. Spacious and well appointed, great views and not overlooked. The complex is maintained to the highest standard and during our stay was very quiet with most apartments unoccupied. The ten minute stroll into panormos in the evening was a lovely way to end the day, visiting the local tavernas or browsing in the little shops. In need of a break after a few busy months we returned home with batteries fully recharged.

We look forward to a return visit.

The Perfect Greek Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just had to put pen to paper having returned from a really enjoyable holiday in Apartment No 8, Panorama Seafront Homes. We arrived on 2 May and the weather was ideal. We loved the apartment layout, facilities and position overlooking the swimming pool. The swimming pool and surrounding gardens were well kept with a variety of flowers in full bloom. Our large sun terrace allowed us to sit and watch our 2 young children in the pool while we enjoyed a coffee or glass of wine. It was very comforting having a lifeguard sitting by the pool during the day. Panormo village had several restaurants all serving a good variety of fresh local food plus supermarkets, baker, butcher and several tourist shops. The sandy beaches were clean and water sports are available. We spent an evening in Old Rethymno town and were amazed at the variety of shops. We will defiantly go back again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are so pleased you had a lovely holiday. I will pass a copy of the review to our team that look after the apartment and swimming pool so they know their hard work is appreciated. We have had several family's tell us that having a lifeguard by the pool helps them relax when the children are swimming. Last year the life guard taught a 60+ year old lady to swim who had never before had the confidence to try. We look forward to welcoming you back again.
