  • Great location and amazing hospitality! Jurga was very helpful in planning and even had a little book with lots of helpful tips!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Jurga. The house is very beautiful, the apartments well distributed. We had the 4 for two people, with a beautiful terrace with a sublime view of the bay. We highly recommend it.

The apartment was very comfortable and quiet, equipped with everything you need, also in the kitchen. It's important to us because we like cooking. Outside view of the sea and mountains and a beautiful sunset. Quiet and charming place. Andrzej and Kalina

  • very good i highly recommended. In the town there is a very cool cooperative called Esmigia which we also recommend to go !!

    Nunu2018-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very nice, clean and just as pictured with excellent kitchen facilities. Georgios and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is in a quiet residential area a short distance from the centre of Plaka where there are two supermarkets, several tavernas and even a craft beer bar. The beach at Almyrida is 3/4 mile away (only a 15 minute walk although slightly longer coming back as uphill)! It is ideal for families as the sea is very shallow for quite a distance out from the beach. We enjoyed our stay at Georgios’s apartment and would definitely stay there again.

  • Its a very nice appartement with a wonderful view! Perfect for a big family! It is a great starting point to discover west crete!!!

    Hans2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful week in Villa Odysseus. The villa is perfectly equipped, very clean, with 3 incredible terraces. It is located above the city of Almyrida, accessible on foot for the bravest or by car in a few minutes. The city is right on the beach, with everything you need and very good restaurants by the beach. It should be noted that the villa is in a row with several houses and so there is passage on the terrace, and opposite with the other villas, it can disturb those seeking privacy. The pool water was cloudy on our arrival, and despite all the daily care of the hosts, she did not find her blue. Apart from that, we will keep a very good memory of our stay!

    Quentin2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtaking views and several seating areas with the pool terrace plus a first floor large balcony and an additional roof terrace although no way of getting chairs etc to top level as approached via a spiral staircase. Comfortable lounge area and bedrooms with the benefit of 3 WCs.

    Janette2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Best view money can buy. Nice patios and nice pool.

    Jesper2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed for 5 nights, three adults. We received detailed instructions and a code for getting the keys on our own, but Elena greeted us all the same, it was nice. The villa matches the photos. She enters the complex of several villas near the single entrance, i.e. neighbors close. To get to the villa, you must climb the stairs, including the suitcases to lift. The house is clean, there are enough bed linen and towels, there are also terry bathrobes, during the stay, they did the cleaning once (they do it twice a week, as I understood). Shampoos, soap and shower gel brought at the first request on the day of arrival. Accommodation is more suitable for families (parents with children) than for several adults, since aside from the double bed, the rest of the beds are rather short. Parking (covered boxes) is located below the villas, we were allocated a separate box, so the car did not suffer from the heat. Of the dishes are missing only wine glasses, everything else is. There is no dishwasher in our villa, but on some neighbors, apparently, this option is available. Conveniently, there are 3 bathrooms: 2 on the second floor, where are the bedrooms, and 1 on the first floor. The pool is quite large, a great place to relax around the pool. Very nice view of the surroundings. I can recommend this villa. We would love to come back. Stayed for 5 nights, three adults. But it was a nice way. The villa matches the photos. It is part of the complex of villas with the joint entrance, ie neighbors are close. You must climb the stairs. The house is clean, there is enough bed linen and towels, there are also bathrobes. For children, there are more than short. There is a separate box in the box. There are not enough wine glasses. There are 3 bathrooms: 2 on the ground floor. Relaxed around the pool. Very nice view of the surroundings. I could recommend this place to stay there.

  • The villa was amazing !! We were impressed and the view on the bay is a real pleasure every morning

    Fabien2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice house in a cosy small Village with some good restaurants on the Village square. A short drive to the Beach in the neigbour Village that has a Beach boulevard. Stelios and the property owner who lives 2 houses next door are friendly and very helpfull. The house has a Nice pool out front and is in a frontline with 4 more similar rental houses, so for our Kids there were always friends to play football etc. Overall a great experience and well reccommended.

  • We spent a week at the apartment and could not be happier with our choice. The apartment was sparkling clean, the living area was open concept and the view was amazing. The bedrooms had plenty of storage and the beds comfortable. There is a market and several restaurants within walking distance, the food was amazing and the local residents are some of the friendliest people we have ever met in our travels. We would love to go back.

    Patricia2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Clean , big & comfortable place. The vieuw is a present every hour of the day & the night. We realy enjoyed staying here. A car is nice to have. We hardly spoke to Yiannis & Maria but we didnt find it a problem.

  • We was with 3 person there. big enough very lovely punishment. Fine place, really amazing view, very clean. A bit far away from a bigger supermarket, but some small one was around from flat. A good place to make Holliday🇬🇷

    Christos2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We spend some wonderful days in this really spacious and well equipped appartement. A great view over Souda Bay and to the mountains from the large balcony, beautiful sunsets are guaranteed. Check in and check out were totally uncomplicated and Iannis gave us a nice and warm welcome. Several taverns nearby, but good to have a rental car. Fabio always supported with tips and offered assistance. We can really recommend this appartement and would book it again for another trip to Crete.

    Brigitte2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely home, the view from the balcony is amazing. Beautiful sunsets right from home. very well furnished. We were just 2 adults and a baby, but it can easily accommodate more people. Kalvyes beach is very close and lovely with shaded areas from trees. it is an easy drive to chania and other lovely beaches. Would definitely stay here again if we visit the island. The place is much better than what you can see in the pictures..

    Sai2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fantastic place to stay the balcony has some great views overlooking souda bay. The accommodation very clean and spacious. I had the best sleep I ever had whilst on holiday bedroom very dark and cool with the shutters and very quiet. I will certainly be returning great host. There are a few tavernas walking distance from the apartment that served great food a very relaxing holiday.

    Caroline2019-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment with fantastic view. Very clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. Fabio was good to deal with and arranged a car hire through Mars rentals, who were also very good. After two days we wanted to change our car to an automatic which they did straight away. Mrs Soula was also very good at giving us tips about where to visit to avoid all the tourists. The owners Maria and John, we only met John at check in were very responsive and we couldn't have asked for more.

  • Jurga's place was absolutely perfect. 7 Olives is in a great location, quite and peaceful but minutes from everything you could want. Our apartment was beautiful with a wonderful balcony and a spectacular view to the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. It had everything we needed and more. Finally Jurga and Mindaugas are the perfect hosts, they were there for everything we could want, warm and friendly there was nothing that they could not provide and helped make us feel immediately at home and our holiday effortless. We can't wait to return next year.

    Simon2019-10-23T00:00:00Z

    Jelena2019-09-04T00:00:00Z

    Gerlind2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful apartment and a perfect place to spend easy, lazy, beautiful,relaxed days at the beach. We had exciting trips outside Almyrida as well- with great guidance! Useful advice about where to eat, and great help to get around (as we travel without a car). We loved it all!

    Kirstine2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Jurga’s, the Appartements are beautiful and the view is breathtaking! Really close to Chania and Rethymno too. We’ll be back soon hopefully !

    Jamie2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at "The 7 olives". We enjoyed every minute of it and allready regret that we didn't book for the whole week. The breakfast was very tasty and something we couldn't have done ourselves. The view was perfect and so were the sorroundings; the authentic Greek feel and local foods that welcomed us. The little town Plaka served delicious greek food and Greek feel and the beach in Almyrida was perfect for the kids.

    Welcome to Anna's house, a traditional one bedroom cottage located in Plaka, Chania perfecture which offers stunning views of the Akrotiri peninsula.
    The house comfortably accommodates 2 people in the master bedroom, with additional sleeping available for two extra people in the living room. The traditional kitchen provides a dining area whilst the outdoor terrace offers open air space to enjoy the amazing sea view. Ideal spot for taking in magnificent sunsets.
    The vibran village of Plaka is a short 5 minute walk where you may find some popoular bars and restaurants serving traditional cretan food. The bustling coastal village of Almyrida offers many seaside cafe-bars, taverns and has an excellent blue flaged sandy beach, only 5 minutes by car. In Almyrida you will find a sea sports and diving center, too.
  • We had a lovely stay in this house. Panagiotis was so warm and friendly and always smiling. The house has a beautiful view on the sea and a very nice garden where you can also park your car. Absolutely recommended!

    Bruno2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect choice for holiday, in a quite and nice town. Also there is a blue flag beach near here, we enjoy everyday time. Mrs Anna and her family are all friendly, preparing dessert, fruits, snacks, and wine for us that treat us like family member, which impressed me a lot. And give us conviennent guidance to travel Crete.we look forward for next time to come again.

    芷衡2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here at Anna's sea view house. We were met by Panagiotis, who greeted us with a huge smile and warm, friendly welcome, even though we were late arriving. He was a true gentleman. We saw a lot of him out and about in the village. Always wearing his huge smile! We know the area of Kokkino Chorio, Plaka and Almyrida as we were married there 2 years ago. Anna's house was perfect for us to celebrate our anniversary. The flowers, wine, cretan biscuits and little note left were such a lovely touch... we were overjoyed. The house was very comfortable, great shower which is unusual abroad and excellent WIFI which was a bonus! I would definitely recommend staying here. Fabulous restaurants within walking distance. Elpis and Prinos were our favourites. We will be back! ❤

    Beverley2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place. Beautiful view of the bay of Souda from the living room and two terraces, one of which is in the shade of a carob tree. Cretan house very clean well equipped that can accommodate 3 people without problem. Air conditioning internet. Kitchen and bathroom very decent mosquito net everywhere. Guests can enjoy a well-kept garden from the terrace. Really one of the best value for money in 10 years on Crete. Very nice home owners with raki and homemade cakes. Panagiotis also want a resto bar '' O PRINOS '' where it is good to eat or drink for a very modest price. Plaka ideally located to visit the region of Chania and apokoronas and enjoy the beach of Almyrida.

    BRUNO Et NADINE2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Home is located in very pleasant and quiet place. Near to restaurants and food shops. Place is very good if you planning to visit Chania, Rethimno and surroundings. Panagiotis and his wife are very hospitable owners, ready to help at any problem. We are recommend this place for couples and people who likes quite and pleasant places with nature, animals and local flavor. (no clubs and crowds of people).

    Dasha2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Plaka - an excellent resting place - near the beaches of Almyrida, Kalives, to Chania 25 km. We were on the car and traveled a lot of places in the west of Crete, it's very convenient to do with Plaka. The house of Anna in reality is the same as in the photo -bedroom with a comfortable bed, a full kitchen, where there is everything necessary (and where we found a treat on arrival-Greek raki and homemade cookies), there is a patio where you can sit during the daytime heat, and incredible view from the terrace to the sea and sunset, crackling cicadas and the scent of jasmine! It was just fantastic. Thank you, Anna! Thank you, Panagiotis!

    Сергей2018-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great hollydays in anna's house.Very clean,great view and its the good place to visit west of the island!

    Elodie2018-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Panagiotis for being so helpful, picked us up from the airport transfer and dropped us back to meet our airport transfer. Thanks also for the lovely Cretan salad tomatoes, they were very sweet. The accommodation is basic but Cretan and for the price we paid we were very satisfied. The bed linen and towels were changed and the house cleaned mid way through our stay which was needed as the temperature stayed around 34deg all week. Air con and Wifi excellent. Fantastic views from the front balcony of the house. Easy access to Chania and surrounding areas via great bus services and reasonable fares. All in all a great week. We did not have a TV as there was something wrong with it but it did not detract from the holiday, maybe a blessing to have no TV to watch. The only things I would comment on are that the 4 minutes to the beach are probably by car, the walk to nice Almyridia beaches are all downhill and takes around 15 mins, but if you are not able it may be a struggle to negotiate the hills back up to the accommodation-fantastic views though!! This is purely my observation. If I was the owner of the accommodation I would totally refurb and rent for more than twice the current renting price, it is a great family rental. If you want a relaxing holiday apartment with a fantastic restaurant (Elpis, run by Moulie, her husband and fantastic chef Nicos and hardworking children)) within a lovely 10 min walk to Plaka, then this is ideal.

  • Jurga and her family are great hosts, very communicative, helpful and always with a smile- even when we messed up our booking and forgot to check out! The location has spectacular views and it was close to local amenities/restaurants. The room was super clean and quiet, exactly what we needed. Top ingredients for a good stay, highly recommended.

  • Amazing apartment with a fantastic view! We had a great time!

    Renée2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Seen beautiful, large rooms with terrace and all well decorated, comfortable and quiet. You have to have a car because the road to the city is a bit difficult to walk (no sidewalk and it climbs well), but after 2 weeks in Crete and 6 different dwellings that were, (almost), all very well - we We can say that the 7 Olives was our favorite, and we highly recommend it.

  • We felt very comfortable in Christina's house. Christina had us in advance a multi-page, lovingly designed info document with many useful Tips emailed. Her mother Aphrodite was on site and even brought us delicious dumplings.

    Dennis2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a truly wonderful house and a credit to the hosts. It is beautifully decorated and the attention to detail, in terms of decor and finishing touches shows how much thought and care went into it. The same thinking went into what guests needed and we had no need to ask for anything. We were two couples and the house was perfect in every way for us. A short walk will take you to two small grocery shops and a selection of tavernas in Plaka village. Beaches are a little further so a car is essential. We hope to go back as soon as we can. I can’t recommend this place highly enough!

    Rob2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • great place, very attentive hosts, I highly recommend, we will undoubtedly come back !!

    Christian2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely apartment in the middle of a tiny village. One of the best AirBnBs I have ever stayed in! Really appreciated the snacks & drink provided and all of the special touches in the building. The building is located on top of a hill (amazing view, great sunsets), about a 10 min walk from a few small restaurants and 1 shop. Almyrida village is the nearest beach about a 25min walk away. It is VERY hilly, so I didn't fully grasp that a car was probably needed! There isn't loads to do (especially without a car), but if you are craving a peaceful beach holiday this is the one. Would 100% recommend.

    Kathryn2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, near a lovely beach. Really well decorated and high attention to detail, nice touches upon arrival. Recommended!

    Sasha2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful villa up in the hills but close enough to the village to leave the car at home for shopping or eating out. It had absolutely everything we could have needed (the kitchen is better equipped than mine!) and Christina was next door to solve any issues. I would definitely recommend her place!

    Sarah2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t know what to adjust to what already has been said... this home feels like home in every single way. The details in the decoration of the house, the beautiful view, the very warm welcome by the owners including a filled basket of fruit and drinks in the fridge. And not to forget the lovely town of Plaka with all the typically Greek narrow streets, the olive and citrustrees and the oleanders. Just adorable!

    You’ll love my place because of the location and the tranquile atmosphere. Great view to Souda bay! Located close to Plaka lovely village square. Good tavernas and a minimarket within walking distance. Relaxing in the infinity pool and watching the sunset, what a great way to end a day's travel in beautiful western Crete! EOT 1042K92003240901
    The sunset Villa is a three bedroom, recently built and fully equipped Villa. It's located within an olive grove, just a few hundred meters from Plaka's main square, with its several taverns and mini market. The living room, the garden and the pool all have a unique view to the sea and the sunset is exceptionally beautiful.
    The village of Plaka is ideally located for those who wish to stay within a short distance, 3-5 minutes by car or 15 minutes walk to the lovely beach of Almyrida on the one hand, but wish to avoid the noise and traffic that comes with it during high season. The Sunset Villa can be a great place to relax and run away from it all for those who that is what they desire, but it's also a great place for those who want a great base for excursions and trips in the beautiful western part of Crete.
  • Had a great stay at The Sunset Villa and will absolutely recommend to others. Was even greater than the pictures. Communication with Doron was efficient and easy, and we enjoyed great flexibility regarding check in and out. Looking forward to return :-)

    Mads2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • To leave behind the big city life of London and escape to this beautiful coastal environment was nothing short of wondrous. The amenities provided by the villa and the added amazing panorama of the mountains and the bay are top notch. Also loved the atmosphere in Plaka village where the restaurant staffs and the shopkeepers could not have been more friendly. They even managed to teach us a little Greek! All in all a holiday to remember. Thanks Doron to you and your house managers Wendy and Graham for being so responsive and helpful. Bob Young

    Bob2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Sunset Villa is in a fantastic location. Really quiet with no passing traffic but within an easy 5 minute walk of Plaka village. The village has two supermarkets and around 10 restaurants so has enough for a two week stay, with Almyrida and the beach a 15 to 20 minute walk downhill (or €7 in a taxi each way if you prefer). Communication with Doron was fantastic during booking and while we were away. There were no issues but Doron kept in touch to make sure everything was OK. The view from the villa, with mountains and the bay is brilliant and the sun sets right opposite the pool. Would highly recommend.

    Lisa2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a beautiful place to stay! The villa was spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. The rooms are all air conditioned and the beds very comfortable. The view from the terrace and pool area was absolutely stunning and the sunsets were breathtaking! Doron was a superb host and helped with everything we needed. He gave me very clear instructions on how to get to the property and tips on the local area and always responded quickly to my messages. We are seriously considering booking again next year!

    Todd2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic vacation in this villa. Best vacation home ever. The view was spectacular, the house was so nice and had everything we needed. The pool was clean and very tempting. Doron is a greate host. He answered quickely to all our questions and was very welcoming. We can highly recommend this place.

    Mona2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house, the pool, the view, the mountains, the sunset yes everything was absolutely fantastic! We had three wonderful weeks in this house! We highly recommend The Sunset Villa! We will certainly book the house again!

    Marina2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sunset Villa is an amazing and lovely place to spend an relaxed and enjoyable holiday. We spent a month in Doron’s villa and didn’t want to leave back home ever! The view is amazing with mountains and overview to Souda Bay. There are a number of nice walking routes in the vicinity and from the nearby Plaka village can be found nice restaurants and two supermarkets. Sunset Villa has a perfect location and facilities. It is situated at the end of the small road, so it is very peaceful as well. Doron was very helpful whatever questions or problems we had. We highly reccommend Doron as host and his wonderful villa!

  • The accommodation with a unique location in a gorge with sea view! Almost no neighbors. The hosts are incredibly gracious, have welcomed us with cupcakes, ham peaks and Greek specialties! Even when they came cleaning during the week, they even brought something to eat! Highly recommended hosts and accommodation!

    Emil2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • I visited this property with my wife and two kids. This is a very beautiful specious house with large living rooms and a great well kept garden. There ware many toys, games and even video games for the kids. Great! The location on the mountain side is great with an astonishing view. You would want a car to get around. The pool is beautiful. Water was quite cold but usable in October. We struggled some with mosquitos. The written Information from the host was extremely informative. We recommend this house!

    Henrik2018-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • It Is a fantastic villa and it will exceed your expectations. From the service and quick response of the agent Fabio who went out of his way to help with questions and even sent us his personal recommendations of where to eat, places of interest and the best beaches to Angelliki the owner being there to greet us with her husband Angelo and daughter Katerina with baked food and a stocked fridge on arrival...the personal touches made all the difference. The pictures do not do the place justice as it’s by far the best villa we have stayed in the area and this was our fifth visit. You probably will need a car if you want to visit Almyrida on a regular basis as you are on a steep hill however Plaka is a ten minute walk and one of our favourite restaurants (Elpis) is located there plus of course the views are to die for. The owners came twice a week to clean and every time they brought more freshly baked food and cakes and We were so overwhelmed with their kindness that I was saddened not to personally say thanks to them on the day of departure (we had to leave earlier than planned) :( I can not recommend this place enough!

  • We were very happy with our stay at Joan's place. We had a perfect weekend. The house, the nature around and the view are amazing! Joan is a perfect host, she cared a lot and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I would come back any time!

    Julius2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures don’t do the view justice. This is an amazing place up in the hills, surrounded by mountains, views of the sea and the beautiful bell sounds of sheep wandering around. Joan and John are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make sure your time spent is relaxing. From the wonderful breakfast of bread and homemade jam, to lovely chats with Joan, you are sure to enjoy your time. Close enough to some restaurants and in great proximity for exploring central and western Crete. Chania is 30minutes a way. All in all, I will say that if you want a bit of a “closer to nature” stay coupled with their lovely hospitality, then Alpha House is the place.

    Jenn2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are very friendly and help in everything, the house is great, with light, very clean large kitchen, gardens, the room is ideal size and has a private bathroom, all very good. I would surely stay there again.

    Regina2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Superb stay at Joan, a very warm and endearing hostess. The house of John and Joan is well placed between Chania and Rethymnon and it is quiet and the rooms are clean and well appointed. Thank you to both of them for their superb hospitality.

    Sandrine2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is one of the warmest and most caring hosts I have met! Our stay was truly idyllic as she is very caring. If you seek tranquility and a place where you feel at home, Joan's home is the place to go. Thanks again !!

    Gwendoline2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is such a lovely, kind and warm presence and as soon as you meet her, makes you feel like you are at home! She is 68 years old and still have beautiful dreams and willingness about life. I stayed in one of her rooms which was very comfortable and nice decorated with a spacious ensuite bathroom with a bathtub. The balconies were the highlight of this lovely house in the natural environment with amazing view to the White mountains. Highlight was also her delicious breakfast with her homemade bread and jam which she makes with so much love. I felt the area that the house is located very familiar, with nice taverns and local café-bars only 5 minutes drive to Plaka. I was so lucky to find her and share together life stories. I would return back for sure and soon I hope :))

    Angela2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place has million dollar views of magnificent nature, especially the mountains one can almost touch, Nature at its best, host is wonderful, helpful and delivers loads of of useful information, all in all - unavoidable.

  • This was a great spot and very comfortable for our group. It was difficult to find but other than that it was a great location.

    Nancy2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • The pics from the posting are spot on. The villa was about five minutes from the main road - with a market and multiple restaurants. Takis hospitality and service made it our favorite. Also a fifteen minute walk to Almyrida beach - w many shops, restaurants and car rental/taxis. Chania was about 30 mins away, multiple other beaches within 30-40 minutes. Only negative was one night we had rented a car and all the garage spots were taken. An amazing villa, location and experience. Take the ferry from Athens - they run during sunsets.

    Nicholas2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location (would recommend a visit to Taki’s Taverna). Great villa to stay in however be prepared for passers by at the pool, if privacy is a key factor when booking.

  • We had an amazing stay at Guy's place in Plaka! If you are looking for a tucked away oasis with beautiful views, this is the place for you. As noted by other guests, it is at the top of a twisty turny road so tentative drivers beware, but you will be rewarded by fanastic views at the top. The house was lovely--the pool enjoyable (even in November!), the beds comfortable, and the patio was amazing. The only downside was that the internet went out a couple of times (maybe this was a sign to disconnect and not worry about email when in Crete!!), but Guy was very responsive in getting it fixed ASAP! Would definitely stay again.

    Amy2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 5 wonderful nights in Blisshouse. The villa is so spacious and beautifully furnished. The views, as mentioned in previous reviews, are outstanding! We met Guy, who was very friendly, and he told us to feel free to contact him at any time. Fortunately we had no need to. It was our first time in Crete so had to get used to driving up the road leading to the villa. As Guy said to us "This is Crete". Beautiful!

    Caroline2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most beautiful stay in this home! We absolutely loved swimming in the pool with the most incredible view we could imagine. Highly recommend staying here!

    Courtney2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Blisshouse. Just the most amazing view you're likely to wake up to. Great location and lovely villa. Plaka is a lovely little village with lots of restaurants and the Seaside town is beautiful. All within walking distances.

    Chay2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great villa in a fantastic location. We were a family of 3 and had more than enough space. Located near great restaurants and a great beach and the views are simply stunning. Sadly did not get to meet Guy as his wife gave birth the day we arrived but couldn't have been more helpful and was quick to respond with any queries. Would like to return one day!!

    James2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great view, to stay smug on vacation. The pool and the space around it were perfect for doing nothing. Hard to leave this space to go to the beach that we saw below. The bedding is very good, and the air conditioning efficient. This is a good holiday villa rental. The nearby villages are quiet and not too crowded.

    Benoit2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at BlissHouse! It lives up to the pictures, and more. The view is incredible, the sunsets are gorgeous. Sitting on the BlissHouse terrace at sunset with a glass of wine is about as good as it gets. As others mentioned, it’s up on a hill, you may want a car unless you’re in very good shape. We loved the privacy of being just out of town, yet good restaurants and shops are very close and easy to get to. The house and pool were very clean and had everything we needed. Guy is a wonderful, responsive host, and can offer tips on restaurants and tucked away gems. We didn’t want to leave! Thanks, Guy.

  • Lovely place with nice views. But the walk to the beach or town is very steep! We had a great time and Guy was really helpful quick to answer our questions. You need to get the exact address not a Google maps pin as the villa is not called Seaside Villa at the moment

    Lesley2019-05-23T00:00:00Z

  • The best and sincere place to stay on the island of Crete Stunning house in the small village of Plaka, with a very convenient location. A 5-minute walk minimarket with a good selection of products and a funky tavern. Beautiful interior, the house is very clean and tidy, everything is organized for a good holiday. The owners of Stamatis and Dimitra did everything so that we really feel at home. Many thanks to them for their hospitality, cordiality, sincerity, and simply humanity. Special thanks for the treats, delicious dinners and family atmosphere. A place you definitely want and worth returning❣️

    Natalya2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • The place was shini and the hosts was the most wonderful couple. They warmly welcommed us when we came and toke good care of us. There is nothing to complaine about.

    Krista2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • The house is perfectly located and sam and dimitra are wonderful host. It s totaly the expected exchanges We are waiting for air b ''b.

    Christelle2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We were travelling with 2 children (7 and 10 years old). House was great for our family. It has 2 bedrooms, kitchen with big dining area, big and very cozy living room, CV and 2 patio zone. It is situated not very close to the sea, its 10-15 minutes walking distance, but its not very hard! Location has its advantages: village Plaka is very cozy, it has 2 supermarkets (with prices better then near the sea), a lot of tavernas and very quite atmosphere. Specially I want to mention our hosts Dimitra and Stamatis. They are very intelligent , polite people. Very hospitable people: Dimitra was making a lot of surprises for us (huge musaka, homemade ice-cream and so on). House was perfectly clean, cozy, beautiful. We felt at home there. Only the best recommendations!

    Katya2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • To put it in a nutshell: Anytime again! A wonderful place to experience great scenery, sea, sights and hospitality. The house is also super located in our view: within walking distance to the beach 20 minutes, to mini markets and tavernas 5 minutes. So there was no problem in the morning to get fresh bread. The cleanliness in the house and grounds simply sensational, within 19 days took place 3 times a complete cleaning. We've been renting holiday homes for 24 years, but we've never experienced such exceptional hospitality. If you would like to know more about the life of the country and its people, this is the place for you. We would like to thank Dimitra and Stamatis for our wonderful stay and we are happy to meet them. We will be back! The last word on the roof terrace: For us there was no better place than up there. Here we left stroking the soul every night. Just beautiful!!!

    Anna2018-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 10 days to be unforgettable. The house is just as in the description and in the photos. We were 4 adults and were very comfortable with the rooms. Mrs Dimitra takes care that it is always crystal clear and honestly glittering, It has a great view, especially from the terrace. The hosts, Mrs. Dimitra and Mr. Stamatis, are really impeccable. Undoubtedly, hospitable, friendly, discreet and very helpful. They have made sure there is no shortage. Dimitris's cooking is hard to reach. It offers perfect pies, and in the evenings BBQ is full of table appetizers. We were completely happy with both of us and our two 21 and 18-year-olds. It was really impeccable whenever we recommend it without a second thought. Both the home and the hosts. Mrs. Dimitra and Mr. Stamatis, thank you very much for everything.

    Chris2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful holiday at Dimitra and Sam. Their hospitality, their kindness and all their attentions really touched us, and our young children were pampered! The description and photos are true to reality. The accommodation is very nice and very well equipped. Special mention for Dimitra moussaka which is just a delight. We can only advise this very good address and hope to visit them again. Long live Crete!

    Sylvain2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great home at Dimitra and Sam, the house is very comfortable, the view of the olive trees and the sea is beautiful. The environment is calm, we can rest quietly.

So there are nice restaurants and bars with unique atmosphere. The apartment is fully equipped and it is perfect for short and long stays.
    לדירה יש נוף מרהיב, מצד אחד הים ומצד שני ההרים, המושלגים בחורף. אפשר לשבת במרפסת על הספה ולצפות בנוף במשך שעות. יש שביל קצר שמוביל לחוף קטנטן ואינטימי, שברוב המקרים תהיו בו לבד לגמרי, כי מעט אנשים מכירים אותו. הדירה נמצאת בליבו של יופי מרהיב, עם המון פרטיות. יחד עם זה היא ממוקמת בשולי הכפר פלאקה, כפר יווני קטן וציורי, שבו מתגוררת קהילה בינלאומית, במשך כל השנה, כך שבמרכז הכפר יש מגוון של מסעדות וברים טובים עם אוירה ייחודית. הדירה מצויידת באופן מלא, כמו בית, והיא מושלמת גם לשהייה קצרה וגם לשהייה ארוכה.

    Galia2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous place in a wonderful location. I really enjoyed Plaka, the view, and the overall experience!

    Morgan2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 4 nights in Boaz's apartment. Nothing to say, the welcome was excellent, Boaz made us discover Cretan culinary specialties. The location of the apartment is perfect, with a small rental car we could visit all the northwest coast of the ridge and the village of Plaka is very charming as well as its surroundings! We are really happy with our stay and leave feeling full of nostalgia, the view from the terrace is amazing with sunsets of postcard. A swimming pool is in the residence very well maintained, we could also enjoy the small private beach at 3 minutes walk from the apartment. In short, everything was great for a quiet stay for a relaxing holiday. We highly recommend this apartment

  • This a superb place for a family of 4 or 2 couples, very clean and with great amenities and a wonderful pool garden. The nearby beach (almost 1 km) is nice but the sea gets rough when it is windy. There is a very good food market within walking distance (800 m) but the terrain is pretty stiff for carrying bags. In general you need a car to move around.

    AMA Number 546591. This number proves my Villa is authorised for rental by the Greek Tourist Board. Outstanding 2 bedroom Villa with pool. Wonderful hillside location, a short walk from the historic village of Plaka. Amazing views of both Souda Bay & the White Mountains. Restaurants & beach walking distance.
    The Villa is one of 3 on a plot of 2000sq/m, with own gated drive and gardens. Also the suntrap tiled roof and pergola. The other Villas aren't rented out, so unique in that it is touristy. A feeling of own space and tranquility, yet walking distrance to the amazing Plaka Square. The Views are of the sea, or the white mountains, to please everybody. Air con in every room, and balconies off all rooms too. WiFi provided free of charge.
    The area does have Villas to rent on complexes, but our Villa is in a more quiet area, though still close to the square. I think you'll agree it's a very special place indeed.

    Plaka, Almyrida, and the area of Apokoronas Plaka and its beach, Almyrida is the ideal place in Crete for people who want to enjoy the sea in peace and quiet, far from the noise of the major tourist resorts. Almyrida (sometimes spelled Almirida) is a small village with about 1000 permanent inhabitants in the Apokoronas area, located in the bay of Souda some 25 km west of Chania. The village looks out over the sea and the Akrotiri peninsula. Traditionally a fishing village, Almyrida is today a small seaside resort extending approximately 2 kilometers along the coast. There are two sandy beaches fully organized with sun-beds and umbrellas, and a lifeguard, and a third beach with pebbles just before the village. The beaches of Almyrida are awarded the Blue Flag every year, ensuring that the sea is clean and that the beach provides the necessary safety features and customer service facilities. The sea has crystal clear shallow waters making it ideal for families with small children. In front of the beach there is a cute islet called Karga. In Almyrida, you can also find the remains of an early Christian basilica from the 5th century with mosaics and some fallen down pillars. Along the beach are a good selection of tavernas offering a wide range of cuisine, (many of them serving fresh fish) whilst enjoying breathtaking views across the beach and Souda bay. The sunsets in this part of Crete are spectacular as the sun falls across Souda Bay. Almyrida also has a good choice of coffee shops, bars, gift shops, bakeries, and 2 small supermarkets. Supermarkets with more choice of vegetables, fruit and fresh meat are in the nearby village of Plaka and Kalyves. Almyrida is also the crossroad to the sea-side larger village of Kalyves and the picturesque village of Plaka situated right above Almyrida. A short drive (15 to 20 minutes) brings you to a completely different world of large trees and olive groves, villages with historic stone buildings dating from the Venetian and Turkish times and interesting old small churches such as in the lovely villages Vamos, Gavalohori, and Kefalas. A hidden gem in the same area is the amazingly beautiful cove of Ombros Gialos with its crystal clear turquoise waters. Compared to some of the other districts of Chania, the area of the Apokoronas (where the Almyrida is situated) still makes a pretty unspoiled impression, with its hills of olive groves, lush nature, old traditional mountain villages and good roads with limited traffic. You can use Plaka and Almyrida as a base to explore the picturesque Apokoronas area on foot or by car, and the old beautiful Venetian town of Chania when you plan your holiday in this area. Distances from the villa: 700 meters to Plaka center with shops, cafes and restaurants 1.6 km to the sandy beach at Almyrida with shops, bakeries, restaurants, pharmacies, etc. 6.6 km to the beach at Kalives with post office, bank and several shops 11 km to Vamos (main village in the Apokoronas area with ba open 24 emergency ) 27 km to the beach at Georgioupoli 34 km to Chania airport (130 km to Heraklion airport ) 37 km to Chania center and the Venetian harbor

  • The apartment was very nicely decorated. We enjoyed the simple and minimalist Greek style very much. It was very easy to relax and just hang out with the children. There were several hammocks and toys for everyone to use, which our children appreciated very much.

    Julia2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, quiet with a lovely view.

    Lefteris2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • As beautiful as the photos! Lovely apt with everything we needed. The beach at Almyrida is really nice - sand and calm sea - you could stay here and not have a car - Jurga and her family do lots of excursions to beautiful places - really good value and expert knowledge. But we had already rented a car so we went off most days exploring on our own, but took her advice about the best times to visit various places and it really helped. We woke up at 5am and drove to see Balos beach and were the first people down there! The mountains are also beautiful and wandering around the back streets of Chania at night was magical. Jurga also does a really good breakfast - the best we had in Crete with fresh fruit from their garden, and ask for a carafe of wine, their friends own a vineyard. It's amazing value for money and you also have the added bonus of expert guides there all day. The views from the balcony are stunning - although it was too hot to sit outside during the day when we were there in August, but we ate breakfast there and watched the sunset in the evenings. I will miss the shady reading hammock. Just lovely. Wonderful place.

    Sarah2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Welcoming, relaxed and peaceful- Jurge and her family provided us with a secluded spot in the hills above Almyrida- just 5-6 minutes walk from a beautiful beach and a few good restaurants. She was around to give advice and help out and make our trip exactly what we wanted we would recommend hiring a boat from Marathi, and spending the morning horizontal on the western side of the Almyrida beach, and running through the hills! Thank you!

    Adam2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful terrace Beautiful view and very nice apartment

    Nathalie Et Patrick2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
