It’s just 600 meters away from a mini market, tavern and cafe and just 2 Kms from the lovely sandy beach of Skaleta.

Also, there are plenty of fun activities in the area, reachable after a very short drive, such as water sports, tennis court and karts in just 2 Kms, as well as horseback riding in Platanias, just 6 Kms away! Also, a diving centre could be found in Panormos, only 10 Kms from the house!

Also, the location of Mary’s House is an ideal base for your trips and excursions, as it’s close to important sightseeing spots such as the Arkadi Monastery and Ancient Eleutherna and also provides quick access to the National Road leading to both Chania and Heraklion cities.

Outside Area

Passing the gate to Mary’s House and entering the path leading to the house, you’ll firstly see the beautiful 750m2 lawn covered garden, with trees and flowers, then you’ll meet the 35 m2 and 1,40 m deep private swimming pool and finally you’ll find yourselves at the entrance of the house! There’s plenty of room for two or three cars to park inside the property and the door functions with a remote control. Guests will also find a ping pong table and a children’s playground.

The pool and garden area is truly wonderful and you’ll definitely take a lot of pleasure just by sunbathe or just relax on the sun beds, under the umbrellas, reading a book, with a refreshing drink on your hand! Also, there is an additional shaded area with patio furniture and a barbecue grill, right next to the pool! Enjoy the hot summer sun at day and cool night breeze afterwards, while listening to the soft song of the crickets and cicadas! Additionally, the garden provides magnificent sea and sunset views!

Furthermore, right across the street there is an old, small church, which adds a traditional and historical touch to the area and you can’t help but admire for its unique architectural design, that makes you wonder about past times.

Finally, there is a spacious, 50m2 shaded veranda, leading from the living room area directly to the pool and garden. Patio furniture are provided and it’s a great place to sit or try al fresco dining, which you’ll just love! 2 bicycles are also available to explore the area!

Philippe User Profile
August 2015
Very nice house with beautiful garden and great swimming pool. We were two families with total of four kids and there was plenty of space for everyone. Perfect location in a quite, small village outside Rethymno, 10 minutes by car to the beach, and great as a base to do excursions of the island. The hosts were very friendly, accommodated all our special requests and even cooked us a nice welcome meal, when we arrived. I can fully recommend Maria's house!
