House Rules

What I expect from my guests is to respect my house as if it is their own house. Although smoking is allowed, I would appreciate if my guests smoke outside the house. As far as pets are concerned, the well-trained pets are welcomed. Besides dogs are my weakness!!

Lily's Cottage is one of those rare gems on AirB&B... you get so much more than just a house, you get to stay in a beautiful home and experience wonderful Cretan hospitality courtesy of Lily. The cottage itself is stunning: spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and newly renovat…

Dear Simon, first of all I would like to say a huge THANK YOU for this amazing review! You are really very talented in writing and of course a very polite person with a big smile on your face.. Two years ago, when I decided to renovate the country house of my family and turn it into vacation rental what I had in my mind was a cozy, very comfortable home, with all comforts someone need when on holidays which would give to its guests the feeling that they are in their own home!! I don’t know if I managed it but I did my best... BUT to my opinion, what is really important when you are on vacation is the feeling that you are safe , that no matters what it happens to you, you always have a person to make things easy for you, to be there when needed and of course to host you either giving you recommendations, a piece of advice or even a nice homemade mussaka or spinach pie... So from my side, I tried to combine all these things.. my guests will judge! My warmest regards to you and Kier. Hope to see you soon in London!

Dear Michaela, sorry I reply in Engish but, you know, I dont speak German.. I used the (Hidden by Airbnb) trasnlator, so I know that this is really a wonderful review and thank you very very much for that. As I wrote in my review for you, you are from those guests that one is very happy to have them in his house. I disn't had much time with you but I really enjoyed our conversation the day before you left. Crete is a very big island so I will be glad to see you again in the future. I will have more recommedations. Thanks again Lily

La maison de Lily est dans un écrin de verdure et de fleurs. La vue sur la mer est magnifique. La maison est très bien entretenue, tout est harmonieux et bien pensé, avec goût, avec amour. La piscine est divine, on a l'impression d'être seul au monde. Lily a été une hôte adorable…

I was born and raised in Rethymno, a picturesque town on the north coast of Crete. At Athens University I studied ancient Greek philosophy, a fascinating subject, but which I never used in my professional life. I was employed by a leading Greek bank for twenty years, the last six…
