Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa 9th august 2017. Quiet location within walking distance to nearby village up a hill, with some bars and restaurants. Car esssential for getting out and about. Villa very private and not overlooked. Villa well stocked with everything you need and would recommend this villa and would also return ourselves.

Perfect for a "get away from it all" holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My husband and I spent a fortnight in Lisa & Kirk's villa and we absolutely loved it. Totally secluded, yet no more than a few minutes walk into the village. So peaceful, away from all the routine. The villa had everything we needed and perfectly cool and comfortable inside. Pool area is wonderful for sunbathing, drenched in sun all day long - we were on the deck every day! The locals in the village made us so welcome and could not do enough for us - they are wonderful people. We hired a car for the full two weeks which was great for getting to the local supermarket (Lidl - just a 15 minute drive) and for visiting all the wonderful places (helped enormously by the sat nav we hired). Lisa was extremely attentive from the point of booking to the end of our holiday, ensuring we were fully informed, etc. Info supplied was really good too - especially the travel directions which got us to the villa on our first attempt! Honestly, we absolutely loved this whole holiday and are already planning to return - maybe later this year, but definitely the same time next year!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

From the initial enquiry to coming home, Lisa could not have been more helpful throughout our holiday!

The villa is beautiful, in a stunning location, quiet but close enough for any activities you may want to go and do. The pool made us not want to leave, excellently maintained and perfect for kids. The accommodation has everything you need, in an evening walk up into Gouves, visit the tavernas and you'll be made to feel like part of the family.

It is an ideal base for anyone who wants to explore the area and see the real Crete. About 20 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes to Hersonissos by car but there are plenty of bus stops on the main road to catch and utilise. We hired a car and Lisa had ensured we knew which companies to use, which tavernas and eateries were good, everything was covered by her excellent instructions and knowledge.

The nights can be so peaceful, you hear crickets (think that's what they're called) and see small lizards and the lack of light pollution allows you to see some spectacular starry skies, if you want noise it's a quick taxi ride into Malia, here you have the best of both worlds.

We would highly recommend visiting this beautiful villa and using Lisa ensured our first holiday abroad went as smooth as possible.

Thank you Lisa for all of your help!

Lovely villa, fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as we expected from the description. Lovely quiet area and great pool. There are a few tavernas in the local village 5 minutes walk away. We hired a car and visited Kakki Hanni ( 5 minutes drive a way) a few nights and had some lovely meals there too as many of the tavernas in the village close to the villa were shut in late October.

Despite the weather being cloudy for 3 days (but is was the last week of October) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

A car is not essential but useful for sightseeing and shopping at Lidl.

Lisa, the owner, was very very helpful.

We will definitely return to this villa again, thank you so much Kirk and Lisa.

A lovely peaceful break

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfectly placed for a peaceful break. A 5min walk to the small village with tavernas and a couple of small shops and 20min walk to bustling kato Gouves with buses to everywhere. We got a public bus to and from Heraklion airport costing 10 euros and was SO easy, saving a fortune on hire cars or cabs. The villa itself is very clean and extremely comfortable with all everything you need for a self catering stay and Lisa, the owner, was amazingly helpful with any queries we had before and throughout our stay. Will definitely be returning next year and recommending this property to friends.

Great Villa perfect for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at the Villa due to flight times and had hired a car so we had an interesting night time drive! The villa is spotless and very well equipped and is in a fantastic location for a peaceful break. The pool and patio area were great with lovely views of the mountain, sea and village. We found a hire car useful for visits to Knossos, Ag Nicholas and Lidl! The Lidl is about 15-20 mins drive away and ideal for stocking up on food and drink for around the villa. We walked to the beach on a couple days, the walk back is a drag but made better by the knowledge of Spiros taverna and a cold beer awaiting you. The village is small but everyone we met were very friendly and Spiros & Debbie are great hosts at their taverna. I would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday in great surroundings and would definitely look to return in the near future. The owners Lisa & Kirk were very helpful during the booking process and also assisting with any issues that arose during our stay.
