What an amazing place to stay and what awesome hosts Tim and Helen are! The location couldn't have been better. Incredible beaches a short drive away, local produce on every corner, great food in the village and the house and pool are fantastic, even better than they look in the photos. We made good use of the BBQ and enjoyed some lovely meals outside with amazing views. Highly recommend hiring a car and exploring Crete. It's beautiful. A perfect holiday!

What a lovely place, very private, you have the apartment, garden and pool all to yourselves and it is beautiful. Such a relaxing place. Tim and Helen are very welcoming and helpful, we loved every minute of our stay and only wish we could have had longer. Also well placed for visiting many stunning beaches (you need a hire car) the garden is lovely and we picked tomatoes and plums, passion fruit! melon! we didn't get round to the barbecue but it looks lovely. Absolute paradise.

Hej Tim & Helen, thanks again for the wonderful time at your apartment. We had such a good time with the pool and the barbecue. And also your recommends for the day trips were awesome. It was a little paradise. It was great to meet you and have some beers. Best greetings for the dogs and the goats. Prost Pascal, Sina and Paul

Great location in the middle of the nature, and very nice garden, great private pool and private barbecue area. The whole area is quiet and surrounded by Greek nature (olive trees, orange trees, lemon trees and palms) which makes the whole experience one hard to forget. The hosts are very helpful and eager to provide details and all is needed for a good stay.

Well there is so much to say about this beautiful place, it's a hidden paradise not far away from Kissomos perhaps 15 min drive and easy to get there the village is only 5 mins away which is lovely and where all the locals meet, fab supermarket where you can get your essentialsag

The property was absolutely gorgeous - the photos don't do it justice. The pool was spotless throughout our stay, with everything you could need and more to self cater and spend days by the pool. Multiple shady spots for eating in the evening and lunch. Kissamos is just a few minutes drive away with a little super market and lovely tavanas for very reasonably priced meals out. The whole experience was the perfect mix of seclusion and genuine Cretian culture. For us the BBQ was a huge selling point and did not disappoint, we had many meals over looking the gorgeous valley. The hosts - Tim and Helen could not have been more welcoming or any nicer people. We feel like we've left with new friends, super accommodating and helpful with lifts into town, meals out and great company. Great to meet likeminded people who just want to make your stay lovely. Really cannot rate them highly enough for their hosting and their property. We hope to come back one day soon!

We rented this house for one week, which was too short! Everything was perfect, and we enjoyed ourselves every minute of our stay. Tim and Helen welcomed us at a tavern not far from the house. They are very friendly, showed interest in us and told us about Crete, its culture and where to go. The location of the house is great. The village, with a little supermarket and two tavernas, is closeby, and there are some nice beaches not far from the house. But we spend most time at the house, which was very comfortable en completely equiped on the inside, but awesome at the outside area. The views from the garden were nice, it was a quiet environment, a fantastic garden and clean pool. We can absolutely recommend this house!
