The villa itself was in beautiful surroundings - olive trees, orange trees and great sea view. The host, valia and her husband were EXTREMELY helpful from day one. From booking taxis, to giving suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to go to. It did make our stay very pleasant and we felt very welcomed. Local amenities are close by however, would strongly recommend hiring a car. Overall a great holiday and THANK YOU to the host, VALIA !

The orange tree villa is a very nice Villa to stay. The rooms are super clean and the garden is great. We were a group of 10 people and had really nothing to complain about. There are 2 flats with seperate kitchens. So you really have everything you need. The only thing to mention is, that there is only one table top dishwasher in the upper flat. So it may take some time to "do" the dishes. Still it was a very nice stay we had. Valia is a great host, she offered us so many things, that she could arrange. Thanks again!

This is a very comfortable Villa almost midway between Heraklion and Chania. therefore a great position for travelling to various parts of the island. It is set back from the coast about 1.5 Km in a quiet area. The house is well equipped for a family and extended guests if wished in a completely safe environment. Pool is excellent, and as house is reasonably new there are no issues at all. The cleaning service was first class and a small problem we had with washing machine was settled immediately. Access to amenities is very straightforward with car, travel to centre of Rethynmon about 15 minutes with multitudes of restaurants etc. The taverna Pasithea at the beach in Skaleta however ( 5 minutes )is really great value with excellent attentive staff. My family can testify to the excellence of the waffles and pancakes! Valia is an excellent host and smoothed things from the moment of booking including arranging car hire at short notice with pick up organised at Chania airport.

Great house, stunning views looking at the mountains (including Cretes highest mountain) on one side and the ocean on the other side. Great place for families, our girl learned how to swim in the pool. The service provided by Valia and her husband was outstanding.

Valia was a fantastic host. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had and to recommend restaurants and places for us to go and visit. We stayed at her villa for my birthday with family and friends and she even went out of her way to come and check in personally on the day of my birthday, bringing a birthday cake with her - which we thought was very kind of her. We had a slight incident with leaking in one of the rooms but Valia and her team were very fast and efficient in resolving the issue and made sure we were very comfortable for the rest of our stay. Orange Tree villa was exactly as described with the added bonus of the beautiful scenic views that can be seen from the balcony. Thank you once again for your hospitality Valia.

Valia was in constant communication with me up until our arrival. When we arrived , the house was just as pictured. Although we didn't realize the ground floor (2 bedrooms) was shut off from the main house, it was nice since we have a baby and we we were traveling with another family. That unit also had a kitchen, bathroom with tub & living room. The house is bit secluded but was nice to get away and relax with just a short drive to the old town Rethymno. We messaged Vialia throughout the week for recommendations on restaurants and attractions. She was quick to reply back with many good options. When I called her for an emergency, her husband was there in a few minutes to escort us to the emergency room. He talked to the staff for us and we got seen very quickly. My family would definitely rent any of Valia's houses again.

Thanks to Valia and her team, our stay at the villa was very pleasant and enjoyable. The property is a great retreat and the outdoor area and patios are just wonderful. Valia has been quick and efficient in responding to any questions we had and with her service oriented attitude we felt that we were in capable hands. We will definitely consider Valia first for any future trips to Crete.
