Better than you can imagine
We had the most lovely week, in large because of the hospitality and attention to service by the staff and the spaciousness of the villa. We enjoyed every aspect of the villa: movie room, pool table, ping pong, pool, incredible outdoor spaces, hot tub. The villa was even better than the photos! And the location is beyond compare! Steps from your private area on the sea, just a few meters from coffee shops, restaurants, shops. We couldn’t have chosen a more Wonderdul place for our holiday. We will be back. Many, many thanks to all of the folks who made our vacation special - from our housekeeping crew to the caretakers. Amazing!
As described. Great vacation!
We had an great holiday! The house is exactly as the pictures and the description. Very well furnished and has everything you need.
We struggled to fit our clothes because the wardrobe space is limited and the bathrooms are a bit small but besides that the rooms were comfortable.
Common areas (inside):
Spacious and well furnished. Very comfortable and well furnished, with everything you need.
Big enough and well supplied with everything you need. Nesspreso coffee machine (much appreciated).
Big and comfortable. We did most of the cooking there. If you don’t want to cook there is a great restaurant next door which brings and serves the food at your table and it’s cheap. Very comfortable!
Common areas (outside):
Very well organized and furnished with different areas for all types of moods and crowds. We spend all of our days there. The only thing I would say is that it is a bit small for the house.
The cleaning staff are great! Incredible people who came every day to clean and made sure everything was perfect. They were so sweet they brought presents for our kids and home made food for us.
Overall: A great vacation!
Great 10 days in wonderful villa
We have just spent 10 great days in Villa Moana. In terms of facilities and ease it was the best villa we have ever had. With 9 adults and 3 young children it was ideal to have the maids cleaning each day. They arrive early but just clean the communal areas, doing the bedrooms later, so aren’t intrusive at all. They also brought a great moussaka.
Manolis met us and showed us round on arrival and was always available to organise anything for us, he really is a lovely am who seems to really prioritise our happiness.
With multiple areas to go to sunbathe, be in the shade or have drinks on with lovely views out to see the villas facilities are great and anything we asked for before hand, such as extra high chairs and child sleeping arrangements etouri went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed, we are very grateful.
Reserved sun beds and canopies on the beach are really great to have with young kids and again Manolis and Maria make sure they are available to the villa residents.
Local restaurants are OK with a couple of good ones in Bali and some really good ones slightly up the hills inland. Etouri are happy to organise everything and give good recommendations.
Overall this was a wonderful villa with great service before and during your stay. People have mentioned it being like a hotel and it is but with all the privacy, so best of both worlds. If you’re thinking about it then go for it as you won’t find a more relaxing and easy villa where all your needs are met.
Could not ask for more!
We would all like to say a massive thank you for a wonderful week! The villa is amazing. Manolis and Maria are so attentive, always happy to help and nothing to too much. The lovely ladies that come into clean do a brilliant job and make a particularly good moussaka which we all enjoyed greatly. We did not want to leave. Looking forward to having something to celebrate so we can comeback again. Thanks again to you all for a very memorable week.
I have to agree with the previous reviews; this villa deserves 5 stars.
We were a family of 8 adults / 5 children and we throughly enjoyed our stay. Due to the size of the villa and the various spaces to relax it worked very well.
The staff were fantastic and having Manolis available anytime when we needed assistance was great. They truly care about their guests.
Highly recommend etouri and Kostas for booking taxis, car hire, providing recommendations and pretty much being on call 24/7 if required.
In terms of Bali it's a quiet area (we were there in April) but it's a nice walk over Panorama and Akrogiali restaurants at the little harbour. They both have great views.
It's probably the best villa we've stayed in as a family and we can't wait to return.
Thanks again for your hospitality.
A Nice Surprise
A stunning villa that the pictures don’t do justice to. Quality throughout, everything worked, with great social areas but with space to get peace and quiet too.
The level of service from the guys on site and etouri was the best we’ve experienced and wished we had taken time to organise more with their help. Special mention for the cleaners, so so good.
Restaurants in the area aren’t great with the best meal being a fantastic BBQ the guys did for us in the villa. Will be rebooking for sure.
Villa Moana is located right on a sandy organised beach in Bali village, a beautiful seafront village with a lovely view to the Cretan Sea. It is one of the most central locations of the island of Crete, from here you can easily access the whole island, as it is 30 km away from Rethymno and 51 km from Heraklion town, both offering a wide variety of shops, facilities and entertainment.
Bali has all kinds of shops such as supermarkets, pharmacies, traditional taverns, cafes, bars, beach bars and restaurants, etc which are very close to the Villa. Besides, our guests can benefit for exclusive room service service facilities (breakfast, snacks, drinks) from the beach bar next to the Villa, while enjoying their full privacy.
There are four beaches in Bali and the closest beach from the villa is around 800 m away. In addition there is a waterpark on the sea includes a variety of water attractions for the whole family. A scuba diving centre is nearby, while water sports can be arranged at the beach right in front of the Villa, upon request. Bali also offers interesting sightseeing spots nearby, like The Monastery Attali.
Additionally take advantage of the location and explore the nearby villages and locations such as Panormos, Melidoni Cave, the traditional pottery shops in Margarites, the Ancient city of Eleftherna with its museum, the Zoniana village museum with candle statues, and Anogia where you can interact with real Cretan people and feel the Cretan hospitality. Around those villages you will also be able to see some unique sightseeing spots like the Idaion Andro cave where the Zeus was born according to Greek Mythology and the cave Sfendoni and many more.
