About Tim Howkins
I have been running my own business for almost 30 years and currently live in Gloucestershire, England. Tracie and I have extensively travelled over the years and still very much look forward to our adventures abroad ! We have children and grand children who we adore dearly. We are looking forward to all of our family, enjoying our new holiday home, for many years to come.
Tim Howkins purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Tim Howkins chose Mylopotamos
We have visited many Greek Islands over the years and 2016 was our first visit to Crete. Needless to say, we absolutely loved it. There is something really quite magical about Crete which we both can not put our finger on ! We came for two weeks and stayed in THIS very apartment and did not want to go home ! As it was for sale, we felt that it was the right time and the right place and therefore, purchased our ' family holiday home '. It has a large Terrace / Balcony that has great views over the pool and breath taking views of the sea. The sunsets are picture postcards.....
What makes this Apartment unique
Panorama Seafront Homes enjoy a superb location, right on the edge of 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 apartments were designed by one of Greece's top architects and the interiors are modern and fitted out to a very high standard that you are unlikely to see elsewhere in Crete. As most apartments are privately owned holiday homes, the pool is never over crowded, some days you may get it all to yourself ! We always take a trip by bus, ferry boat or hire car to Rethymno old town where the harbour front is full of life and one can spend hours walking around the narrow lanes, window shopping. There are a great choice of restaurants and lively bars to suit all tastes.

Absolutely stunning. Complete relaxation
I’m always quite cautious when booking any holiday, as I just want it to be perfect and for it to meet my expectations of what my perfect holiday should be.. This holiday completely met and exceeded my expectations of relaxation is!
We would wake up in the morning, lift the blinds in the bedrooms and gaze out to the sea, which is beautiful! (Both bedrooms are sea view)
We would then prepare our breakfast in the modern fitted kitchen and go out and eat on the large balcony - you can look out to see one way and also look directly over the pool, which is modern and kept very clean.
We would then usually go down to the pool and be able to lay wherever we chose - there were only ever a handful of people around the pool at max - I was advised that this is usually the case (which I was pleased about!)
Our 1 year old absolutely loved the kids pool.
My partner (who has very high standards..) was Very impressed with the cleanliness and the upkeep of the place in general.
We would often take a couple of minutes out to walk down to the little pebbled cove. This is a tranquil little gem, which is a stones throw away from the apartment.
The local village is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk and has all you need.
Restaurants with stunning authentic food. George and Georgias was a personal favourite - would recommend the cheese and herb pies and the souvlaki!
Shops, bars, bakery, takeaway (not littered with lots of tat - completely idyllic and authentic)
Great opportunity to take some lovely photos here, lots of Pretty sites.
Rethymno Is the big close town. This is about a 20-25 minute drive on one road. Rethymno is full of lots of cool corners to explore- beach front, bars, restaurants, markets and lots more beautiful sites to take in. If you’re bored, jump in the car and head here for the day!
Rethymno has a big Lidl - which is panormo side. We stocked up on everything we needed here.
Apartment is very modern and has all you need - including Excellent A/C in each room!
I’ve probably missed a lot, but I hope that this insight helps you make a decision :)
We could not ask for a better review.... Thank you so much. We hope to see you again in the near future as you are most welcome.
Lovely Holiday Apartment
We stayed in Apartment 10, When we arrived the apartment was immaculate and clean, the furnishings and decor were of good quality and included large wardrobes and storage draws. The kitchen and laundry equipment were more than enough to cover a family’s needs. Our large sun terrace had magnificent sea views and overlooked the swimming pools which provided for all ages from toddlers to adults. The local shops and restaurants were a short walk away. We were surprised at the number of both locals and holidaymakers who smiled and said hello walking to and from the apartments. In summary, everything about our holiday superseded our expectations.
Thank you for your excellent review. We do our very best to make our guests feel at home and to have a stress free, relaxing holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
"Everything it's says on the Tin and more "
Exceeded my expectations - the apartment was modern,clean spacious and well equipped .
Had requested an arrival hamper which was fantastic as we arrived late evening so had all ingredients to make breakfast
On most days we were the only people around the pool which was like having our own villa . The local village which was only a 10 min stroll was typically Greek and food in tavernas was traditional and not commercial highly recommend George & Georgia,s .
2 weeks of pure relaxation so much so I did not want to leave
The sunset view from the balcony was amazing .
I will definitely be returning and will definitely be recommending to family and friends
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you in the future
Ruhig gelegen und alles zu Fuss erreichbar.
Alle Zimmer der geräumigen Wohnung sind mit Balkone mit Meeresblick ausgestattet.
Die Wohnung ist hell und gemütlich und für 3 bis 4 Personen ideal. Die Anlage präsentiert sich durch die tägliche Pflege in einem sauberen Zustand .Sowohl der Minimarkt für den täglichen Bedarf ist fussläufig erreichbar als auch das nächstgelegen Restaurant. Panormos ist ein kleiner, charmanter Ferienort mit überschaubarem Tourismus - wenigstens Ende September / Anfang Oktober.
Als kleiner Wermutstropfen fällt die verbesserungswürdige Ausstattung der Küche auf.
Aber ansonsten ein Refugium, das wir gerne wieder aufsuchen.

There are also hikes through gorges like the Santa Maria Gorge.

Hundreds of sandy beaches - some almost deserted even during the peak summer months - are a prefect retreat from the rigors of city life.
There is a stony cove approx 150 meters away. There are 3 sandy beaches in Panormo village approx a 10-minute walk from the apartment.
