Thank you for a wonderful and relaxed vacation in the villa Anemos! :) We spend our family holiday in Crete with 7 persons and the Villa was absolutely fine. Everyone had enough place. The kitchen is complete and the washing machine was very useful. Also the pool is clean and you can relax and spend a great time. There is also a great barbecue grill and we had wonderful grilled fish (bought at the market in Rethymno). At the evening we sat on the terraces with an awesome view on Rethymno and the sea. The Villa Anemos is placed on a little mountain in the little town Kastellos. Especially in the evening there is a fine wind and you can cool down. In Kastellos is a great tavern to eat traditional Greece food- the name is: Tavern Vasilis. We rented a car directly at the airport Heraklion and drove about 1,5 hours to Villa Anemos. The connection with the hosts was good and uncomplicated. Thank you to stay at your Villa! We'll definitely recommend this place.

A super house, well designed and equipped.... The lower floor studio is a great idea. The pool is well maintained and the view was great too. A car is essential as there's not much within walking distance, but everything you could need (mini-supermarket, cash machine, bakery and tavernas) within a 10 minute car journey. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

One of the best Villas we have rented via Airbnb. The hosts are completely available and provided everything we asked for. The property is exactly like the pictures - beautiful and well kept. The pool is small but well maintained and kept very clear given the great equipment. The kitchen has everything you need to make great meals as well as BBQ outside. Nearby there are a few tavernas - one within walking distance and the others a short car ride away. I would recommend this property to anyone - it can definitely comfortably fit quite a few people!

The villa is really lovely, well equipped and in such a peaceful location. The views are absolutely beautiful, photos just can't do them justice! Breakfast on the terrace is so relaxing and watching the sunset was amazing. There is plenty of interesting bird life around; we saw buzzards, vultures, an owl, swifts and many others in the olive grove below! Only 15 mins to Rethymnon, we also explored Spili and the south coast beaches (where my son did a scuba course.) We all very much enjoyed our week, just wish it could have been longer!

My friends and I spend two weeks on Crete and really enjoyed our stay in villa Anemos. The photos are absolutely true to life. Villa has great location - it is nice quiet place with amazing view. There are some neighbors, but the distance is more than enough. Apartments are well equipped and very good to stay even if it is cold outside. The kitchen has all necessary stuff for cooking but also there is very nice taverna in Castellos village near by the villa. The only unpleasant moment is wi-fi connection - it disappears sometimes, but not very often. Anyway I strongly recommend this place to stay and spend very nice holiday on Crete.
