Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Yioula and Agis, from the day I emailed you until the day we left Crete, our stay at the Melody has been so wonderful! We have traveled to many places in the world and found your hospitality to set this vacation far apart from others. Your houses are beautiful and every detail is no less than I expected. Thank you so much for inviting us the first day to spend with your family - it was our favorite part. I have loved the friendliness of the Cretan people and the wonderful food on this trip. I hope you can contact us in the future if you want to experience Switzerland. We have the warmest and greatest memories of you and villa Melody.

P.S. Loved your baked goodies. Hi to Aris!!!!

Second time staying here. It is perfect, beautiful villa, clean, beautiful, own pool. Couldn't ask for more. To top it off Yioula and Agis are very welcoming and make you feel at home. As 2 young women travelling alone, I can honestly say that this is the only place that I've travelled to that I feel safe and at home. Yioula and Agis (villa owners) are always there should you have any queries. The welcome is amazing with amazing home cooked foods (thank you Yioula! We need the spanokopita recipe) and bottle of wine.

Sofia visits to change towels, empty bins and mop etc. She is so friendly and lovely too.

There is nothing to fault at all. I have already recommended these beautiful villas to friends and family.

II've also travelled with our little boy (8yo ) and he thoroughly enjoyed it.

Can't wait to go back!

Beautiful villa, lovely welcome

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Yioula, Agis, Aris, Sophia and not forgetting Chester, for looking after us so well. As a family of four with two teenagers we stayed at Villa Melody for a week in early April. We had a lovely warm welcome and the villa was just perfect. The pride and attention to detail with which it was built and presented showed through. It was spacious, very well equipped and with some top quality hotel finishing touches, not to mention the basket of home made produce, wine and something a touch stronger!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We arrived at this beautiful, authentic greek house, where we felt very welcome by the sweet and helpful owners. The house is very close to shops, restaurants and the beach, but because it is located a couple of houses from the main street, it is very quiet and peaceful. I was there with my family, which the house is perfect for. Our four-year old daughter and one-year old son enjoyed the pool and the room down-stairs, which had a lot of toys for both of them. We adults very much enjoyed the jacuzzi, relaxing on the terraces and the fact that there was wireless internet access...perfect for planning trips.

I would really recommend this house to anyone who wants a vacation where they can stay in a quiet, charming place, where it is possible to walk to restaurants, shopping, beautiful sunsets at the beach, or take a drive up to the breathtaking mountains or into the city of Chania.

I would definitely love to go back.

The perfect holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Crete and we had a relaxing and wonderful stay in villa Rhapsody! It was clean, well equipped and even better then described on the website. Fantastic villa - superb location within walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants and the beach. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is planning to travel to Crete. Yioula and her family were perfect hosts – thank you for everything!

The best holiday EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to say thanks to Youla and Agis for a wonderful stay in their villa Melody!! Homemade cake and wine was waiting for us when we arrived!!!

It was perfect for the four ladies from Norway who wanted to have a vacation to relax and party at the same time!! Relaxing in the jaccuzi while the rest cook dinner at the barbeque, or having a great time at Rock House with Manolis`great drinks!!!

Go for a swim in the pool to wake you up in the morning before you make espresso for the girls and wake them up for yet another great day!!!! It doestn get better than this!!!

We will be back next year!!!

Best regards from Lisa, Sissel, Grethe and Ann-Torill
