  • Wow, wow, wow!!! I think those are the words which describe this incredible place the best. The villa is just outstanding with amazing sea views. I don’t even know where to start to describe this lovely place. The villa is equipped with everything you need so that you will have no troubles at all to self supply you during the stay. The pool you have to yourself is just a gift and you have plenty of opportunities (from sunbeds to hassocks) to make yourself comfortable at the pool and fall into a deep relaxation. The villa has air con in every room so you’ll also find a good night sleep when it’s hot outside. We actually didn’t use it cause there was enough wind throughout the days and nights. Your alarm clock in the morning is the sun. We watched incredible sunrises from our bedroom. Just magical. If your not the morning person, don’t worry there are roller blinds in every room. Gerani, the small village where the villas are located is just lovely. You find wonderful and really good taverns just a 5 minute walk away. We loved the tavern “Staras”. Beautiful place with typical Greek food and plenty of local people. There is also a nice cafe and a small supermarket for your convenience. From check in to check out everything was just outstanding. We’ll definitely be back soon!! Thank you so much for having us.

  • Lovely house, really friendly and helful hosts.

    Peter2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at Marianna's Home in Litsarda, Marianna and her Family were extremely kind and generous, they made us feel at home and we highly recommend this lovey home as a base for Beaches, Chania and other nice places close by. You will need a Car to get around.

    Martin2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Marianna's house is delicious and perfectly located. Marianna is always available for any advice.

    Laurent2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay in a very nice house. The reception was perfect. We recommend without hesitation.

    Fabien2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • We were so glad we chose Marianna’s place to stay! It was a delight to live for a week in a small Cretan village and enjoy a local lifestyle. The courtyard is beautiful and a fantastic place to relax. The kitchen is really well stocked and includes full size stove but no microwave. There is a coffee machine and Marianna generously left local produce and drinks. Litsarda is so well placed for visiting local beaches (15 mins drive), Chania and Rethymno and the gorges south. Be sure to visit the local cafe, the incredibly well stocked English style store, and the Pizza restaurant - all amazing in such a small village. Be aware that roads are narrow and do not expect luxury bathrooms etc but do expect space, tranquility and great hospitality - this is genuine rural village living and has so much more to offer than a beachside resort.

    Jayne2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • For us it was a nice experience to spend a week in this lovingly designed house away from tourism in the village. Everything went great and the reception was Obat, wine and everything for a first breakfast. Relaxing after excursions and beach sessions in the quiet, very private courtyard of the house has increased the recreational value. We highly recommend the house and the hosts!

    Lara2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Super Host – for a good reason! We felt right at home. Everything was as described or better. Marianna is very kind, has a lot of good recommendations, provided us with fresh goods for a wonderful start and checked if everything was fine in between. If possible, we will come back one day for sure. The village is nice and quiet (in terms of tourist hordes) but beaches (from hidden and lonely to lively with taverns), restaurants (from traditional to pizza places) and sightseeing possibilities (from hiking to historic) are endless, if you have a car.

    Helene2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • The house of Marianna is really charming and peaceful. And Marianna is so welcoming!

    Litsarda, Greece

    The house is renovated cretan cottage of 18th century! All the places are carefuly decorated with respect to the architecture of the house. Wood and stone prodominate in the atmosphere of the interrior and the exterior as well! Our lovely garden adds the sense of nature. It s a house ideal for architecture lovers, readers, , artists and people who love nature! You can enjoy moments of real relaxation in the heart of a typical cretan village, away from the difficulties of the urban environment!
    The house belongs traditionaly to our family and we have carefully renovated, since we are a family of archaeologists. We have used natural materials, originally used for house constructions.
    The house is located in the center of a quiet, picturesque village. Although the villages around offer all oppotrunities of enjoying yourselves with different possible ways!
  • This house is amazing! Although it does not have a pool and some modern touches, it is very comfortable and charming (150 years old!). The inner courtyard was so pleasant that we barely spent any time in the large living areas. The small village and surrounding villages were fun to explore on foot and the general location (easy driving distance to Hania and the north coast beaches and the good road to go south) made this our favourite house in our three week stay.

    Roger2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's house is special. Pleasant, with style, with history. A few minutes from magnificent beaches and perfect for excursions to the south of the island. The impeccable treatment and communication. Hopefully we can return one day.

    Alberto2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Maris’s house! It is a traditional stone house and you can see (and feel) that a family of archaeologists does conserve everything with a lot of love to the place. It is well decorated, very quiet and has a great view to the white mountains. The courtyard with its garden and plants is beautiful and you can spent a relaxing time there. Communication with Maria and her sister Georgia was very friendly, easy going and quick. We will definitely come back and recommend that place!

    Dörte2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended! Lovely place

    Ian2019-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment very well placed to reconcile beaches and tours. A very well renovated house that works. The reception was also very appreciated.

    Emmanuel2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Maria's place. The house is beautiful and well decorated, we enjoy every single details here. This was perfect for us, spending some days enjoying the calm and the sun in the nice yard and some other driving to Chania or Rethymno (about 30min drive each). Communication with Maria and her sister was easy, they are answering really quickly. We can only recommend this place!

    Jérôme2019-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Typical Crete house with a very tasteful decoration Garden very flowery and very beautiful We felt really good

  • Perfect! Awesome! Everything is very well taken care off. We felt very welcome. Mrs Sofia was the best host we ever experienced! The house is beautiful, the view stunning! The whole experience was superb, the very best AirBnB we have ever rented. With this reservation you can’t do anything wrong. Please take good care of the cats (they are only outside). As for the rest: you will be taken care off. Only thing: you need a car. Pool heating worked very good and was needed (end of october)! Thank you for this beautiful home!

    Petra2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a week in October in the villa. We had a wonderful time, which made the view of the villa even more impressive! Sophia the owner welcomed us like kings with a typical meal from there, very appreciated since we arrived late and we knew nothing. Nothing to say: everything is clean, beautiful, practical and well thought out to spend an exquisite moment. The view of the mountains in the distance behind the infinity pool makes you feel good every morning. Go ahead, go for it!

    Ophélie2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a great location, welcome, view. Never rented such a beautiful place. Everything from the pictures was right and in addition Sofia provided us with a warm welcome. We thought we were in super luxury. We recommend this location to anyone who appreciates location, has a sense of style and loves to sit among the locals

    Marieke2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time and found everything we needed in the house. The host is really nice. Quiet place, amazing view. Perfect!

    Rose2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • We flew into Heraklio and caught a hire car. It was a two hour drive to the villa, but once we saw it from the foothills we all smiled in the car. We were greeted with a warm smile and a delictible treat in the oven. A thorough run of the property from the owner and then that was us on our own. The views are spectacular from all vantage points, especially up top!.....The property is close enough to a mini mart via a drive in the car to stock up on essentials and also close enough to Chania to go out for meals and explore. We used the opportunity to visit many parts of the West of the island of Crete, always returning to the villa with a smile. The Pool is a welcomed treat after a hot day and looking out over the edge is breathtaking. I have already recommended to my friends if they ever stay on Crete and would recommend the property to anyone who wants a wonderful stay is a wonderful location.

    Andy2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a truly amazing stay! The host sofia gave us a warm welcome, with great food made by her. Other than that she was very helpfull in planing our stay/trips in Crete. The villa was beautiful! We loved grilling while enjoying the beautiful view over Crete. had an amazing time at the Villa!

    Constantin2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • This house is spectacular. It had everything we needed and more. A great location if you want a quiet place to stay outside of the city. The views were amazing - morning coffee has never been better! The hosts were always helpful, always responsive and very thoughtful. Thank you so much Sofia, Manos and Dimitra for making our stay so wonderful! Would definitely return, and highly recommend.

    Maggie2018-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • a dream place to dangle the soul. we were warmly welcomed by sofia (owner) and even left in the house although it was too early for the check in. "stuffed tomatos & pepper" were already waiting for us in the oven and the fridge was filled with lots of delicious food. first equipment so you do not starve to the "mountain". The house is beautifully situated in a mountain village with a great view over the land to the sea. the noise floor is limited only to nature. This lovely house is equipped with everything your heart desires. Each of the three rooms is equipped with a television and air conditioning. the whole house is full of lovely little things. you can feel the warmth of sofia and her husband - who have so beautifully renovated their grandfather's house. We say thank you for a nice time in a nice house in a nice place. and yes we fell in love. PS: should you meet a red cat at the house then please nice to him - he is the gentlest and loveliest cat we have ever met in greece.

  • Dimos is the perfect host and his place offers a great place from which to explore Chania. The location is close to a bus stop as well as a super market although renting a car gives better opportunities to explore further. The apartment is clean, well furnished and comfortable. Dimos also was kind enough to pick us up from the airport as well as leave fresh fruit and bottled water for our stay. Highly recommend a Dimos place for anyone looking for a great stay in Chania.

  • Dimos is an incredible host. He provided so many thoughtful touches, such as basics in the fridge and a lovely fruit bowl. Dimos left a folder full of information on the area and a guide book. His flat is great and has everything you need and, as for the view, it's absolutely stunning - even better than the photographs show. I would highly recommend Dimos' place for those wanting to tour this part of Greece.

  • This a superb place for a family of 4 or 2 couples, very clean and with great amenities and a wonderful pool garden. The nearby beach (almost 1 km) is nice but the sea gets rough when it is windy. There is a very good food market within walking distance (800 m) but the terrain is pretty stiff for carrying bags. In general you need a car to move around.

The sofa's dimension that turns into bed is 140cm*183cm. All of the windows are equipped with insect screens to keep out all insects, especially mosquitoes. There is a kitchen area with a dinning table for six and A/C, a hall and balcony. The house has also a private yard at the front and a big yard at the back, where you can relax all day long. There is also an outdoor dinning table and a sitting area. Free parking space inside the property and a small bbq is also available, as well as an outdoor shower! The house is at the first floor but since the ground floor is not in use you have the utmost privacy.

It is located 34km from Chania (23 min), at the middle of the distance between Chania and Rethymnon (28km / 20 min).

The property is located 2 min from Vryses village, where there are supermarkets, bakers, taverns, gas station and drugstores, bank. 8 min from the sandy beaches of Georgioupolis and 12 min from Kournas Lake.
  • Gianna’s place is everything we looked for: modern house with 2 en suite bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and Bbq space, terrace and garden and close to the village (1.5km). The hosts were also very kind and quick to respond. They picked us up/ dropped us off in the village and gave us helpful tips about the area. Great spot if you want a quiet getaway but close to restaurants and shops in Vryses and nearby villages. Definitely recommended from your stay in Crete whether for sports or a peaceful vacation.

    Sonia2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house is the owner's family original stone house, which was renovated with the highest level of craftsmanship imaginable. The result is a top-notch modern villa, including two bedrooms (each with it's own bathroom) and a fully equipped beautiful kitchen. The villa is suited amid a green lawn. Parking is inside the yard, and the gate is lockable. There's also a big furnished veranda including a barbeque. All in all it is highly recommended!

  • Very clean place with beautiful view and in very convenient location. Parthenia is very quick on responding and offered a bottle of wine with the room and coupons for coffee at the downstairs coffee shop which was a sweet touch. Definitely recommend!

    Matthaios2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very well maintained, stylish apartment with excellent sea views, with little noise despite being located on a street with lots of cafes (I don't know about summer!), Comfortable spaces and very close to everything beautiful in beautiful Chania . Excellent response from the owner, both on messages and our needs. Inherent courtesy and hospitality! We will be back!

    Μανώλης2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Parthenia’s place exceeded our expectations. Conveniently located near the old port city of Chania, the apartment was cozily decorated and was very clean. Our host welcomed us upon our arrival and gave great recommendations on local places to dine. The best part of our stay, however, was the view. The pictures do not so it justice. Waking up every morning to the magnificent view of the ocean that the apartment boasts was simply breathtaking. The space was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped for our stay. If you are looking for a fantastic place to stay in Crete, either as a solo traveler or as a couple, then look no further than this apartment.

    Paul2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice and elegant, with a great view of the sea! Very comfortable bed and the kitchen was fully equipped!

    Lorenzo2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The studio apartment is a beautiful spot in a great location in Chania. Parthenia provided us with ample firewood which was a lovely touch in the evenings to have our own fire in the apartment. There were enough facilities in the apartment to cook, with an oven, hob, coffee maker, and toastie machine. The highlight of the apartment was the location, as it was in walking distance of cafes, restaurants, and supermarkets for all your cooking needs. The apartment is right next to the water, and we were able to wake up to the crashing of waves and bustle on the boardwalk below. Having our own fireplace with olive wood was another highlight, having toasty supper and tea by the fire was a treat!

  • Had a very pleasant stay at Παρθενία's place. The place was very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Free parking is conveniently located right behind the apartment. The views overlooking Koum Kapi beach were really nice too! Παρθενία and her son were very hospitable and gave great recommendations to places around the area. Would highly recommend staying here when visiting Chania!

I would highly recommend this place. It’s the perfect base to explore Crete.

This place is exceptional and I would love to go back one day I highly recommend . Thank you for having us.

    Rosetta2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • If you have something to complain about after staying with Manoliss . I think that you need to start looking at the person you see in the morning in the mirror. The place is full of love. Love for the art of running a hotell business.

    Gard2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis'residence is such a wonderful place! This is beautiful, with a nice swimming pool, public roof you can rest, sunbath or have dinner, and private places for each family/couple. Some typic specialties for breakfast, and homemade products. Rooms are cleaned once a week. And Manolis and his lovely wife are always here if you need anything (washing machine, restaurant addresses,...). We had such a great time with our 2 children and will come again if we have the opportunity!

    Juliette2019-08-09T00:00:00Z

  • Manolis' place is absolutely amazing. The room was well designed and super cute. The breakfast in the morning was a nice touch. And Manolis was so kind and helpful in so many ways. The pool was nice to jump in and the roof deck was a great spot for my morning yoga practice. I will definitely return to Manolis' place.

Everything was clean, comfortable and the view is just amazing. The pool is great. We could not enjoy it every day because of the weather but it must be perfect for hot summer days. Olga welcomed us like we were family. We found the house very easy and felt so good there. It was the perfect start for our first greek experience. We definitely can recomment to stay at villa Eva.

  • If you are looking for a private Airbnb a little further out, this is the one for you! Lake Kournas was a quick 10 minute drive, Chania about 45 and Rethymno around 45 as well. The pool was amazing and the views exceeded our expectations. The host left my husband and I a wonderful cake for our honeymoon and provided us with excellent recommendations within the area. If you are okay with driving, you will love this Crete oasis. And the AC works incredible.

  • Superb villa overlooking the sea in a peaceful place ... beautiful decoration and nice amenities !!!

    Louise2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was absolutely amazing. The view was beautiful and the location was quiet. Kournas had everything we needed from the beach to restaurants and bars to grocery stores. The shower at the apartment was awesome and the place was very clean. I would highly recommend staying here. We will absolutely stay here again if we return to Crete.

  • Great appartement, with everyrhing we needed. Great location, about 20 min walking distance from the center. Nice host who shared valuable information !

    Houria2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay here. The apartment is spotless and very comfortable. The bed was really comfy. The 3 balconies are fantastic! (And great for drying clothes) The blinds and many windows in the apartment allow for such good shade and airflow that we really didn’t need the air conditioning, even though it was available. We walked everywhere. It is perhaps equidistant to Old Town, the beach, and a more modern strip with a supermarket and restaurants. Easy walk to the bus stop as well. The neighborhood was quiet and pleasant, which we really appreciated. Great place!

    Elizabeth2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We have been to several Airbnb apartments and this one was defenetly one of the best. The apartment is spacious, clean and looks brand new. Manousos is extremely friendly and welcoming. Eventhough the apartment is 15 min walking distance from the center, the area is quiet and it has a perfect location to avoid the city traffic and move by car outside the city to the best beaches of Chania. Highly recommended!

    Laura2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Manousos' flat for a couple of nights. Communication was always fast and he welcomed us in person giving us suggestions about our stay. The flat is very nice and clean. There are mosquito nets for every window, so you can sleep with the windows open since is in a quiet area. We loved the balcony, our favourite spot for the breakfast and talking in the evening. The city centre, supermarkets and restaurants are at walking distance. Definitely a nice accomodation!

    Andrea2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • An extraordinary welcome. Manoussos reassuring and hyper available. I travel alone so it's a plus to meet such attentive people. Apartment largely up to the description. Impeccable cleanliness. 3 balconies that give nicely on the roofs. A little out of the way, which is relaxing. Manoussos had told me how and where to take the bus for different destinations. I finally did everything on foot .. port, center, beach .. everything is close enough for who likes to walk a little. Small flat on the fact of staying at 3. A 2 is perfect since there is a room. The bench in the living room is not comfortable enough to sleep I think especially as the fridge is quite a bit of noise. Note that the shower is quite small as is often the case here so pay attention to large size. But these are details .. I recommend 200%. Unbeatable quality / price ratio. Especially as Chania is a very beautiful city.

    Fleur2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very good location and apartment. Manousos is a good host and his recommendations have been useful.

    Alexandre2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay in the Manousos apartment. It is easy to find, rather well located, spacious and above all very well equipped. Manousos has been a quality host. He gave us good local addresses and answered all our questions quickly. The real plus is its private parking space. We highly recommend !!

  • This rental is located in a very nice, quiet village, close to many sites and nice beaches, and in easy striking distance of Chania and other key areas on Crete. The property is finished to a very high level by its discerning owner, and gives the feel of a quiet treehouse respite - you can enjoy privacy, while having your own garden, and being part of the village at the same time. The property owner demonstrated the best hospitality I've seen at any AirBnB, Home Away, or VRBO property I've rented. Dimitris was outstanding and went out of his way to make the rental homey with a lot of nice little touches. The items presented at the beginning of the stay were wonderful, and the property itself is very cozy. Highly recommend this as a very nice stay in Crete!

    Dana2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very great time at this lovely place and also a perfect host with Dimitris. With long work and dedication he created a unique place. From the the moment we arrived he was very helpful with a lot of tips for the island that made our stay even better. We can recommend this place for anyone looking for an authentic experience on Crete in a beautiful and quiet village with a few nice taverns. Thank you Dimitris!

    Katharina2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • This house is truly an insider for everybody who comes to (west) Crete! Its super clean and there's even more than you'd expect because the hospitality of the owner is overwhelming. The area is very quiet and there's even an olive grove and some hammocks next to the house. The owner Dimitris has some very good insider tips for the area and Crete in general. We would definitely come again and highly recommend this accommodation to everybody who seeks an individual vacation experience.

    Simon2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you again for the amazing hospitality we received at the Lemon Tree Retreat, it was beyond amazing. Dimitris was the very best host, sharing his home made wine and Raki, there was honey and local beer waiting for us, along with oranges and lemons from the garden. Hammocks were set up in the olive grove next to the house, with its super private and tranquil walled garden, smelling of heady Jasmin in the evening. There are two separate sun terraces if you don’t want to venture into the lovely little village or down to one of the many fantastic beaches. Really incredible value for money. We can’t recommend this spotlessly clean house enough. Thank you Dimitris and we hope to see you again soon. Andy and Simina

    Andy2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t even know where to begin. My friend and I stayed 10 days at the house and we enjoyed every single one of them to the fullest! The owner of the place is Dimitris, which will also be your host during your stay. He was the nicest and loveliest host we’ve ever had! He gave us great local tips, took us on a 6 hour hike to the white mountains and did everything to make us feel at home! Every time he came around he would bring some delicious local snacks or fresh fruits. His house is incredibly beautiful and even prettier than in the photos - trust me! The village is small and traditional but with really nice taverns. It’s a must to have a car so you can go to the beach and explore the island, but we thought it was a great location. Beautiful landscapes and very peaceful. If you’re looking for a vacation far from busy tourism but in the heart of a typical Greek village, this is your choice! Seriously, we loved it and I am already so jealous of everyone who’s still to spend some time there. But we’ll be back! Thank you Dimitris for this incredible experience!

    Emily2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The lemon tree retreat is the very best Airbnb we have ever stayed in. Although nicos is the 'host' dimitris the owner is the host. What he and the artisans who have worked with him over the last years, to make the house into a truly remarkable place, is something to behold. Every detail is authentic, just wonderful. We will return and recommend the lemon tree retreat to all our decerning friends (of whom there are a lot!) Thank you Dimitris

    Kevin2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a perfect stay. Dimitris is a very dedicated host. He made every effort to make our stay as pleasant as possible and provided us with many great tips and plenty of food. He renovated and furnished the house with a lot of love. We missed nothing, and if we had, we would only have had to ask. We will gladly come back again!

If you have kids the WiFi was excellent. The villa is very comfortable whilst maintaining its rustic charm It's just 5 minutes walk into Vamos where you can enjoy various restaurants or sit with a morning coffee. As it's inland you benefit from a cool breeze and can easily drive to the beaches, nearest one 15 minutes. We were made very welcome and helped with anything we needed. I'd really recommend this villa

    Patrick2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication with Eric both before and during our stay Great location and a great villa

    Mark2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is super nice. Fantastic pool with sunsetview. It‘s very quietly situated on a mountain. Perfect for 6 people with 3 clean baths. All in all very recommendable. We will be happy to come back!

    Vanessa2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Eric‘s Villa was a perfect secret hideaway for us. With a little mount Olympus at the back for shelter and the Bay of Chania within view from the infinity pool, this memory will last a lifetime. But we hope to be back to renew these memories with friends soon! As for finding the property arriving from the airport: Aim for Souda, then for Kalyves and when in Kokkino Chorio procede to St. Georges Retreat and you can‘t miss. Jassas & Jamas!

    Heinz2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Eric’s house. We were a group of 4 and it had the perfect size. ACed bedrooms upstairs with double beds with its own bathrooms plus an extra bathroom downstairs allowed us much privacy. The backyard is really big and we had great BBQs next to the infinity pool with beautiful sunset views. We would definitely come back.

    Max&Emilia2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Overall, we loved our stay with Eric. The place is huge for two people and has a very great backyard with the infinity pool and offers stunning sunset views. The house offers exclusion so if you are looking for that then this it. The house is ACed which is a huge plus since most of the time during summer when we went, it was good to escape the heat. However, there were some minor issues that we had at our stay. First, the bugs. We didnt have ants until week 2 of our stay but when they came in through the holes in the kitchen and one in the bedroom they would not let up. Also, by the pool area there was a lot of insects. Not small either, quite large; bees, wasps, Hornets, and other flying things that you would have to keep an eye on. They didn't harm us but it was a bit unnerving sometimes to lay out in the sun and have to keep an eye on them. Inside the house, we had some unwanted visitors, spiders and other interesting bugs even though we hardly had the doors open. Just make sure to leave the lights by the front door off when you leave for the evening or they will all meet you when you come home. The water pressure for the shower was sometimes just near droplets if the pressure doesnt kick in after 5 min it wont during that shower and have to hope it will the next time.70% of the time there was no hot water so be mindful of that and try to shower in the evenings to catch the water from the day. The Kitchen was a huge plus. We didnt want to eat out a lot so buying from the super market and cooking it at the Villa was super helpful and we even used the BBQ grill more than once! Just know that the mosquitos come out when the sun starts to set so plan accordingly. There is a DVD player so if you want to bring DVDs for your children or just have a night in, it works very well. P.s. The road to the house is very narrow and would require a small car to get through so keep that in mind for booking a rental. We loved the House and the experience and would love stay again sometime in the future.

    Sabrina2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Eric was a very good host. Extremly early check in (4 in the morning) and check out when we wanted. He even booked a car for us with delivery at the house. The house was better than pictures and extremly beautiful view. Just note it Can be a bit difficult finding the house on the small roads, but once we took the trip two times we were good. Would definitely recommend the house and Eric as host!

    Apokoronas is a region which extends to the northeastern part of the prefecture of Chania, by the foothills of the White Mountains to the north coast of Crete. It is characterized by the green hills and the fertile tracts of land, due to the abundance of water coming from the mountains, creating the only natural lake of Crete, as well as rivers which run through the region, before finding their way out to the sea. If you are on holidays in Chania or in another nearby area, explore the Apokoronas region and discover its beauties. Visit its seaside resorts, as well as the picturesque traditional villages and settlements. The three Beach Resorts of Apokoronas Kalives , Almyrida , Georgioupolis . At the western entrance of Almyrida, make a stop to see the mosaic floor of a three-aisled early Christian Basilica of the 6th century. Armeni village Armeni village is an ideal place for launch or coffee under the shade of high plane trees and by the waters that gush from the springs of the village and create Xydas river stream that flows to the beach of Kalives. Stilos village In Stilos there are also taverns by the village springs, of which the waters form the river of Kiliaris that flows to the beach of Kyani Akti.

A little further, north of Stilos and between the citrus orchards, lies another old church. The impressive church of the Virgin Mary the Serviotissa, dating to the 12th century AD.

  • The most beautiful serene setting, a wonderful place to relax, watch the sunset and enjoy the countryside. The house and pool were spotlessly clean, easy check in and communication. Perfect!

    Anne2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice place for holidays if you love silent and nature. Everything was great, communication before and during our time at Mihaela's house. It was clean and useful as well as lovingly furnished. Easy checkin and checkout. I think we will come back once.

    Heiko2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Villa Mayaelisa. Well-designed layout of the villa and its equipment make it possible to get a comfortable stay away from the hectic life of the resorts. At the same time, within 15 minutes you can be on a great beach or get to the store / local tavern. A quick answer to our questions, as well as Michaela's recommendations, allowed us to spend our holidays comfortably.

    Mykola2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • 15 days of fun !!! A very nice house, new, well equipped, well maintained, offering all the necessary comfort for a successful holiday in this beautiful crete. The house is located 1.5 km from a small typical Cretan village (lots of entertainment in the evening), overlooking a beautiful bay in an unspoilt area of maquis. A car is however essential. The sunrises and sunsets, sitting on the terrace by the pool, are particularly beautiful. Like Crete, everything is easy, exchanges with Mihaela preceding the arrival at home, on arrival itself. We were fortunate to be able to enjoy the house as soon as we arrived in Crete on Fridays when the renting started normally only on Saturdays. We had planned a hotel night and knowing it, Mihaela offered to arrive at no extra cost a day earlier. This is exceptional !

    Aurélie2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful week In this villa. We were 4 adults and 2 children. There was enough space for everyone with comfort. The villa is very stylish, has everything you need. Lovely big pool! Children didn’t get out of there))) and adults too! Grilled in the evenings. Enjoyed the silence and solitude. Of the minuses: in walking distance there is nothing ... only by car! Wi-fi did not work stably ... on the second floor does not catch. Only on the first. We definitely recommend this villa if you have a car. Thanks to the hostess for quick and detailed answers to all our questions. !

  • Villa Mayaelisa is located on a beautiful plot on a winding country road. The nature is very close and sheep can be sometimes heard close by. As you drive in from the gate you can feel the relaxation immediately. You will need a car for this villa as the closest village of Kefalas is about 1,8 kms away. In Kefalas you can find tradional supermarkets and tavernas. Georgioupoli is about an 15 minute drive away and has larger tavernas, restaurants and supermarkets. Rethymno and Chania are both about an 50 minute drive away with Lidls, Synkas and much more. Also about an 15 minute drive away is the beautiful and peaceful Koutalas beach. The villa is brand new and absolutely beautiful. The six of us stayed for 10 nights and loved every minute of our stay. The living room has a large couch and satellite TV. The kitchen has everything you will need and more. A large kitchen table sits six easily for breakfast. Bedrooms are equipped nice beds, ensuite bathrooms and enough closet space for clothes. The pool area infront of the house, which overlooks to the garden and the ocean, is spacious with the sun shining on it all day. The pool is large and deep with lights for a late night swim. 6 quality sunbeds, 2 umbrellas and the outside shower make sunbathing a dream. Next to the pool is a covered barbeque area with the table for outside lunches and dinners. We highly recommend this villa. Mihaela and David are great hosts and responded very quickly to any questions we had. 5 stars.

    Jussi2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa. The view is unbelievable and the surrounding landscape is breathtaking. Sitting by the pool was just magic and where we spent a majority of our time. The village of Kefalas was around the corner and ended up being our favourite in that whole area. The local swimming spot was absolutely stunning and also became our favourite! The house itself is very new and well designed. Every window looks out onto a perfect view. The upstairs balcony was also a highlight to sit and watch either the sunrise or sunset! Would highly recommend this gorgeous place!!!

    Megan2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • We've really had a fantastic time at this villa. The house has a great view and is located in the middle of a nature reserve with only one neighbour. The whole house+pool+garden is designed very well and we enjoyed every moment there.

  • This is a lovely place to stay. Large, with two verandas and a great view of the mountains. Sotiris and his wife were very welcoming with homemade jams, liqueurs and baked goods. Kefalas is a very pretty village with very friendly people. My partner and I stayed for four days and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would happily go back again.

    Mel2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at villa Sotiris. The villa is just like in the pictures, and it was shining clean. Katerina was such a great and responsive hostess, starting all the way from the reservation until we left the villa. She welcomed us generously with nice bakings, wine, olive oil and vegetables from their own farm. The villa was located at the edge of village Kefalos, and the place was peaceful and quiet. You could only hear the normal village voices and sheep bells from the field in front of the villa. The view from the kitchen and living room balcony was great on the day time, but especially during the sunset. The colours were amazing, and it was nice to sit and look at the lights of Apokoronas villages and Akrotiri and the starts on the sky. We can very warmly recommend villa Sotiris!

The boutique style interior opens up to large terraces for dining and relaxation. The ensuite shower room leads out from the calming bedroom to the private plunge pool, which is 2m by 4m in size. The pool can be heated with prior request. The cottage nestles between mature olive trees in an acre of beautiful Cretan countryside and is secluded from the main house.
    A short walk will lead you to the village of Xirosterni with it's mini-market and traditional kafeneion which serves simple but delicious Cretan food in the evenings. The bustling village of Vamos, only a few minutes drive, has several tavernas, bakery, pharmacy and mini-markets. Ten minutes by car will take you to the beautiful, sandy beach of Almyrida with its array of seafront tavernas. Kalivaki beach and Georgioupoli beach are 15 minutes by car.
  • We have just returned from the most relaxing and beautiful weeks holiday in Xirosterni in Crete. We stayed in Asteri cottage owned by the most delightful couple Jude and Andreas. They were so welcoming and attentive with our stay it felt like we were middle of no where but were staying in 5 star luxury accommodation with exceptional hosts that any one could want to meet, attentive and super friendly, we have had the best weeks break. The day after we arrived, Crete decided to have one of their biggest storms they have had in a long time, now I love a good storm so doesn’t stop us enjoying what Mother Nature does best, after the storm Jude very kindly delivered a bottle of fizz apologising for the rain, which was not necessary as not their fault but was greatly appreciated!! The cottage itself is stunning, Jude and Andreas having designed and built this stylish home themselves they have made the most amazing guesthouse, with all basic food amenities in the kitchen on our arrival this really helped and gave us time to enjoy the property before venturing out! This is such a lovely touch as, everything you required was in the house/kitchen/bathroom from beach towels to a spare plug was all thought about. We needed time to chill and spent the mornings relaxing in the house, round the pool and on the many different seating areas around the house depending on when and where the sun is and then went out in the car (which is required) in the afternoon and evenings for dinner. The roads are ‘interesting’ we loved it when google maps would take us up a dirt track and lets us go off road, with a couple of trips to Chania and Rethymno, we would definitely recommend both but go into the old towns and sit and eat and drink where the locals do, as the food is amazing. The Avil restaurant in Rethymno was superb and we ate their twice. The beaches and little towns on the coast were only 10mins drive away with great restaurants and bars along the front and supermarkets to help cook the huge shrimps we had bought to go on the bbq. There is also the most loveliest very basic local taverna in walking distance, no menu the food is just bought to you and it was amazing, the owner was lovely and bought me some different food when she new I was a veggie but then this place is all about the company and the food! Having returned home I am now looking at dates to return, this was the most relaxing holiday to just chill or to have an adventure on this stunning island it has everything and the hosts are the kindest and most helpful!! We would recommend the cottage at the drop of a hat and I loved the fact it was only for two, so the peace and quiet was perfect!

    Amanda2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Andreas and Judes place is wonderful, so stylish designed, which when combined with there exceptional hospitality makes for quite the experience. The location is good, with a small village in walking distance and a short drive to vamos. Plenty of beaches nearby and Chania is well worth a visit. Very highly recommended.

    Mat2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Really very nice apartment, which really great to relax. The west of Crete can be explored from here. Andreas and Jude are great people and really welcoming. The welcome and check in was wonderful. We will be back definitely.

    Tobias2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Asteri Cottage is an absolute gem! It is in rural countryside, but still just a short drive from amenities, tavernas and beaches. We had a fabulous week and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the cottage and were very well looked after by Jude & Andreas, who couldn’t do enough for us. The cottage is decorated to an immaculate standard and the pool and sunbathing/chilling out area were perfect to relax with a book or just enjoy the mountain views. We made use of the BBQ and great kitchen facilities, but also ate out at local restaurants recommended by our hosts. We will definitely be back one day for another slice of Cretan sunshine!

    Nadine2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Expectations were more than exceeded! When we drove from the airport Chania to the property, the view of the landscape and the sea was already overwhelming. After about 45min. we arrived on the mountain at Jude & Andreas. We would immediately receive an incredibly warm welcome. We were shown the most important things, which switch is for which light and how we best get the grill with a special coal. Everything was ready to spend a relaxing day. Water, butter, milk, bananas, apples, coal, Grillanzünder ..... were already there. What more do you want? Then we were already alone and could take a closer look at the accommodation. You do not need to talk about cleanliness here. We felt like we were the first guests in this house, it was so clean. Then it went off into the pool, which was even really slightly larger than expected with 1.20m depth. The house is built so that you can look far into the distance, but no one really has insight into one. In the next surrounding cities one is within approx. 15min. Here you can get everything what you want. Small original taverns, to more touristy restaurants. Jude and Andreas have prepared a small black book for this, in which they have written down the best restaurant and tips. Beaches are also super fast to reach in 15min. If you do not know where to go, has Jude and Andreas fantastic little tips where far and wide no tourist can be seen! After 3 days the pool and the outdoor area was cleaned and additionally fresh towels and bed linen ready. We felt incredibly well and the house is very nicely decorated down to the smallest detail. We lacked nothing here. Many thanks to Jude & Andreas! You have created a great place up there and we highly recommend anyone to visit this house.

    Kim2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • A great stay spent for 15 days in August. Andreas and Jude are very hospitable, warm and attentive. Very responsive and attentive, they make everything happen for the best. The small cottage has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The latter has several entrances that give direct access to the outside (2 terraces, one with 1 pool and a barbecue) but the interior is still shaded, fresh surrounded by multiple screens that allow us to leave open the day. Inside, it's neither too big nor too small, just what you need for the holidays: a fully equipped kitchen, bright and pleasant living room, a very comfortable bed, a nice Italian shower that gives directly on the pool, air conditioning (essential for the night), and the outside is just perfect for sunbathing, cooling off in the small jet pool and eating a barbecue in the evening in front of a beautiful sunset . The land is surrounded by red soil, stone, cacti and aloe vera making the place even more charming as we really feel like being in the middle of the cut nature of the world. The small cottage is located next to a small mountain village where you can hear nothing but crickets and goats which is very relaxing and exotic. The small village of Xirosterni has a small supermarket open until very late at night where we find the necessary. To make bigger races, it is necessary to go to the supermarket Synka located at seaside in Kalyves which is 15min by car. In Xirosterni and Vamos which is 5min by car, many small shops and taverns open late at night to discover where the food is exquisite, hearty and the service irreproachable! This is definitely worth the detour especially as the prices are very affordable. If you are transported (and the mountain roads are not afraid of you) many excursions await you to discover the most beautiful beaches and coves of the island (Balos Beach, Elafonissi, Falassarna, Seitan Limania ...) . They are quite far from the accommodation but are really worth visiting if you like fine sand and turquoise waters. Also, the city of Chania which is about 45min drive from the accommodation is super pretty, and if you have time, you can also walk to Heraklion in the city center where you will find charming little streets with multiple shops and restaurants. restaurants. For the first time in Crete, we will not forget this holiday and we will return with our eyes closed!

    Doriane2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Asteri cottage is the perfect little place for a holiday. Everything about is absolutely beautiful and the location is great. Jude and Andres have been the most amazing hosts, absolutely lovely people, extremely thoughtful and helpful. We will definitely be returning to their lovely cottage.

    Nanna Lára2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Asteri cottage was one of the main factors that our holiday in Crete turned out to be amazing. It’s located in a rural area without any tourism around. The cottage itself has everything you need and you could imagine, e.g. full-equipped kitchen, plenty sitting & chilling opportunities and a totally matching and inspiring interior design. A bluetooth speaker, beach&pool towels, yoga mats and a handbook full of recommendations made the stay perfect and will safe you to bring too much luggage. We spent (some) entire days there, at daytime we relaxed at and in the pool and in the evening we had a barbecue. When it got dark, we could turn on all the lights (even in the pool). This contributed to have a cosy atmosphere. The hosts Jude&Andreas are really lovely people. It started with a warmhearted welcome and they were helpful at any time. There is a typical Greek Taverna nearby where you can get authentic Crete food with many locals around. There, it feels like you are part of a greek village. So all in all, if you like to relax, explore Crete and want to free your mind it is the perfect spot to spend your vacation (at least out of our point of view). If we could we would take the cottage home with us :)

  • The pictures don’t do the view justice. This is an amazing place up in the hills, surrounded by mountains, views of the sea and the beautiful bell sounds of sheep wandering around. Joan and John are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make sure your time spent is relaxing. From the wonderful breakfast of bread and homemade jam, to lovely chats with Joan, you are sure to enjoy your time. Close enough to some restaurants and in great proximity for exploring central and western Crete. Chania is 30minutes a way. All in all, I will say that if you want a bit of a “closer to nature” stay coupled with their lovely hospitality, then Alpha House is the place.

  • The hosts are very friendly and help in everything, the house is great, with light, very clean large kitchen, gardens, the room is ideal size and has a private bathroom, all very good. I would surely stay there again.

    Regina2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Superb stay at Joan, a very warm and endearing hostess. The house of John and Joan is well placed between Chania and Rethymnon and it is quiet and the rooms are clean and well appointed. Thank you to both of them for their superb hospitality.

    Sandrine2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is one of the warmest and most caring hosts I have met! Our stay was truly idyllic as she is very caring. If you seek tranquility and a place where you feel at home, Joan's home is the place to go. Thanks again !!

  • Joan is such a lovely, kind and warm presence and as soon as you meet her, makes you feel like you are at home! She is 68 years old and still have beautiful dreams and willingness about life. I stayed in one of her rooms which was very comfortable and nice decorated with a spacious ensuite bathroom with a bathtub. The balconies were the highlight of this lovely house in the natural environment with amazing view to the White mountains. Highlight was also her delicious breakfast with her homemade bread and jam which she makes with so much love. I felt the area that the house is located very familiar, with nice taverns and local café-bars only 5 minutes drive to Plaka. I was so lucky to find her and share together life stories. I would return back for sure and soon I hope :))

  • The place has million dollar views of magnificent nature, especially the mountains one can almost touch, Nature at its best, host is wonderful, helpful and delivers loads of of useful information, all in all - unavoidable.

  • The guys here were amazing to us. Friendly, supportive, helpful and kind. Apartment was fine, great views, and the extra touches for me and my son were appreciated. Nice restaurant over the road too which has a little swimming pool.

    Ben2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this airbnb. Absolutely great and lovely host. A beautiful setting. You will spend a wonderful holiday.

    Noemie2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment! We stayed for four nights and were absolutely satisfied. The apartment is small, especially the bathroom, but everything you need is there eine including a bottle of raki and olive oil. Check-in and check-out were totally uncomplicated and the contact with Vasiliki and Manolis always very nice! Everything was very clean. The absolute best thing about the apartment is the view

    Malte2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome view, where colors change throughout the day, and it will excite you in a new way, as a food for the soul, a rest for the brain. Careful hosts will delight you with the hill of little things you will find in the apartment, such as fruit, sweets, raki, wine ... A very clean, quiet and peaceful apartment, you will have complete privacy. The center of the village nearby, like the lake, the river that flows into the sea, lots of tavernas offering good food ... make you fall in love! We will miss the whole experience of this place!

    Exopoli, Greece

    Welcome to my house "Manikel", which is idyllic and quiet on the edge of the village Paidochori. Here you can go away from mass tourism your vacation and still reach in a short time the charming old towns of Rethymnon and Chania, the long sandy beach of Georgioupoli, the Kournas lake or the Lefka Ori Mountains.
    The house consists of two floors. On the ground floor are the kitchen and the living room, on the first floor the two bedrooms and the bathroom. Both bedrooms have a private balcony with stunning views over the olive groves. In front of the house there is a terrace and a garden. Due to the slightly elevated location you have a wide view from there. The use of the heating costs 15 € per day (payment on the spot). If you want to use the fireplace, you would need to get wood locally (shopping for it after a few miles). An early check-in, before 4 pm, is possible free of charge, as far as there is no departure of other guests on your arrival day. A late check-out, that is after 11 o'clock, is possible free of charge, as far as there is no arrival of other guests on your departure day.

The accommodation was absolutely great, your organization and the local contacts were great. We have met wonderful people and Crete is in our hearts and we owe that to you too. As a tip we can mention that a rental car is important and very useful to discover great cities, beaches, beaches and to discover the fascinating nature. Thank you very much ❤️ Sas efcharistó apó óles tis kardés Patrik J. Vogel & Family

    Patrik2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 9 days in this beautiful house. When we arrieved Nikos and his son picked us up on the national road and brought us to the house. They were amazing hosts, very welcoming, friendly and fun! Since we arrived in the middle of the night they saved our lives by having a little snack prepared - including some Raki :) After showing us around the house they gave us really good information about what to see on the island. Nikos also speaks perfectly German ! The house is great and has everything you need! The terrace and the garden are one of a kind! The house is located at the side of a little valley. So it is very quiet and you have an amazing view over the hills! (Get up at 6 and watch the sun rise at least once - beautiful!) The national road is by car 5 minutes away - so although the house is located in the valley, it is easy to get everywhere quiet fast. We really loved our time there and are thinking about going there again next year, since the house is amazing and there is so much more to explore in Crete!

  • Marianna's 'avli' is a paradise, just wonderful !!! We had a wonderful holiday - Crete is a beautiful island, the Cretan extremely friendly. Marianna, her mother Rula and Jani have received us so lovingly that we felt well from the beginning. The country house that they rent is furnished with great attention to detail and very clean. If you look out of the window, then you look at a large avocado and orange tree in the courtyard; the surrounding village is tranquil, olive groves all around and again: many friendly people :-) Rula and Jani spoiled us with fruit, wine, cake and other delicacies - they are real 'superhosts'. We would have loved to stay much longer in this wonderful avli & on this beautiful island. Thank you so much Rula, Marianna and Jani !!! :-) Birte & Horst

There is place to sit outside in the shadow under an old tree . You need a car to come here, Shopping and Cafes in the next village, Vamos, 3 km distance. 20 minutes per car to beautiful beaches. Highly recommended.

    Gerhard2019-07-24T00:00:00Z

    Sabine2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • All the previous reviews are so accurate. The house is spotless and in a great location. Exactly as we had hoped and more. Hope to be back soon !

    Emma2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely home in the country side. This house is quiet and away from all the busy areas, but within easy reach (10 - 15 minutes) of multiple beaches. It provides a great location to explore more areas of the island. Marianna has provided everything we needed in the house, even some food and drink. She was very welcoming and walked us through the tips and recommondations she had for exloring the island, as well as the house. Recommended: small car, as the parking space is not big.

    Francis2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in this typical house, well placed for visiting West Crete, in a quiet village with a supermarket and pizzeria. We thank Marianna for her excellent welcome, her kindness, her advice and her many attentions. The accommodation is fully consistent with the description and photos and well equipped. A big thank you to Marianna and her mom.
