Really uncomfortable with a dangerous pool
The villa looks beautiful when you walk in. But you soon realise that the furniture is old and back-breakingly uncomfortable. As evening falls, you find that the lighting is really harsh. It is too bright and there are no lamps to create a more subtle ambience. Out by the pool, it also looks wonderful until the tiled patio area around the pool gets wet which it inevitably has to. At that stage it becomes really dangerous - it is incredibly slippery and just asking for someone to slip over and crack their heads. When you combine this with all the signs telling you that you cannot swim before 8am or after 9pm, you begin to realise that this villa is designed to be photographed but is not ideal as a holiday property

A fantastic spacious villa in a tranquil quiet village location, great swimming pool with open panoramic views, 15 minute drive from beaches and walking distance to shops and tavernas.
Great house but very difficult to find
The house is wonderful. It is well maintained, the pool was clean and was everything as advertised. The nearby town of Georgioupolis was a great place to relax at night with excellent sea side restaurants and taverns.
However, I must comment on the directions to locate the house. A week before we arrived the owners emailed a copy of the directions to the house. The directions included a series of pictures you had to find, kind of like a treasure hunt. There was no physical address for the house, we were only provided with the name of the town it was in. We called the property mangers and they were of no help on the phone. As it got dark, the picture clues were of no help. It took three hours and six stops of asking locals for advise and directions before we located the house. The house is poorly marked so you cannot see any signage to identify the house from the road, especially at night.
If the owners read this, please update your signage and possibly provide any other customers coming to stay with the GPS coordinates of the house. Once we arrived we "pinned" the GPS coordinates in our phone and it was very easy to find when we would return.
If you are in the area, I would highly suggest stopping at the Cape Town restaurant in Georgioupolis. Maria is the owner and was the one who went over and beyond to help us find the house. We ate and drank there many nights and she was a wonderful host. If you stop, tell her the Americans who were lost said 'Hi".
Enjoy the house as it is a very nice place to stay!

Mooi en schoon huis en zwembad in een mooi rustig gebied. Alle eerste levensbehoeften zijn op korte afstand verkrijgbaar. Echter de matrassen zijn echt aan vervanging toe. Ook het bankstel is niet om een hele avond op te zitten. Voor ons erg onplezierig omdat we s`avonds veel in huis waren omdat we een baby bij ons hadden die op tijd in bed moest en schoondochter 6 mnd zwanger is. Keukeninventaris erg beperkt,vaatwasser klein en ouderwets fornuis. Vriendelijke behulpzame schoonmaakster. Taverne Meterizi in Kefalas een echte aanrader. Het strand in Kalyves rustig en schoon. Daar zijn ook leuke restaurantjes aan het strand en in het dorp een goede slager.
Almirida, en liten landsby rundt en liten sandby med miniatyrport. Det er kjent ikke bare for den fantastiske, myke sanden, men også for det fine håndlaget glass som er laget av det, ved hjelp av tradisjonelle teknikker. Stranden, sjarmerende tavernaer og barer betyr at Almirida bør være på din "må besøke" liste for Kreta.
Kalyves er en vakker kystlandsby med et bredt utvalg av butikker, tavernaer og barer, inkludert en samarbeiders verksted. Høydepunktet skjønt, er den vakre sandstranden og havnen. Stranden har blitt tildelt et "Blått" -flagg som angir dets rene tilstand og trygt vann. Kalyves har en vennlig atmosfære og er perfekt for barn.
Georgioupolis er en tidligere fiskerlandsby ved den vestlige enden av bukten Rethymnon. Nylig ble den gamle fiskehavnen utvidet for å imøtekomme en liten marina, og landemerket til Georgioupolis er et lite, hvitvasket kapell ved enden av en brygge. Innenfor landsbyen og rundt havnen er det mange tavernaer og barer hvor du kan absorbere den lokale.
