Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely spacious villa in a beautiful location. Katerina was so helpful to us and really cares about making everything perfect - which it was. The location of the villa is great, in a sleepy hillside village but only 8-12 mins drive to the beach and good quality Tavernas. We had a great stay splitting our time between days out and days at the villa, which is excellently equipped with 3 terraces to choose from and a pool, hot tub and BBQ. Lots of lovely things to see and do in the area but you will need a car. Hope to go back again one day.

My husband and I had a wonderful honeymoon at Olga's property, it was perfect for us . It was spotless and we were greeted by Katrina and a lovely gift basket of fruit, wine and homemade cake was there for us. Definitely need a hire car, as it settled up in the mountains overlooking beautiful landscape and the sea in the distance. It was wonderful in the mornings waking up and going out on to the terrace where there was the hot tub to the sound of Cockerels, the bells of the goats and the sheep in the distance.

This Villa is a little gem, had everything we needed, the inside and outside are perfect. We enjoyed both the pool and jacuzzi with perfect views. Loved that villa is out the way and quiet however local restaurants and supermarkets a very short drive away and Kalyves beach is perfect for children. Katerina was a wonderful host from the day of booking and through out our stay advised times and days that cleaner and maintenance being done and came to say goodbye on leaving with little gift reminder of Villa absolutely perfect thank you so much Katerina we loved it and when back in the area would 100% stay again ❤️😍

First of all, a great house for a vacation. However, there were some things not mentioned. There is so called ‘quiet time’ between 14:30-18:00 and from 23:00-07:00. You can’t make ANY noise between those times. Because people of the village will complain. So not a great place for a friends vacation (music and loud talking). There was also not a lot of hot water. 2 people were able to shower, then you had to push a button and wait 30 MINUTES, until there was hot water again. Dishwasher and washing machine also didnt work without the hot water. Lastly, the villa is very far away from any decent village. It is a 35 min drive to Chania. So we had to take the car for everything we wanted to do. Overall de villa was great, but if all of these things above were mentioned, we would have booked a different villa.

Dear Leike, Thank you for posting a review of your recent stay. Our villa is fully equipped and located in a small, traditional, quiet village. There are quiet hours overall in Greece and all people, residents and tourists, should respect each other at those hours and avoid loud music, loud voices and parties. People who choose to stay in our villa usually like small villages, tranquillity and authentic cretan villages. The villages around have this kind of beauty. The biggest town of Chania is just 23km away. Of course a car is necessary in order to explore all the area, with the nice beaches, restaurants etc. About hot water, the villa has both solar and electric heater, and a water tank of 160 litres. When this empties, it gets refilled with hot water. You can use the washing machine and the dishwasher anytime, there is no relation with the water for the shower. You choose the temperature anyway. We provide our guest with detergents for both washing machines and also detailed instructions on how to use them. I am sorry that the villa didn't offer you the type of vacation you had in mind. Thank you anyway.

Perfect house with swimming pool and jacuzzi. Make sure you book the right house because there are two: one with swimming pool, one without. Katerina is a perfect host: she makes you feel so welcome and helps with planning trips. She answers any question immediately.

Lovely villa that is even nicer than the photos portray. Probably the best I've stayed in. Jacuzzi superb as the temperature cooled. Couldn't have had a better host than Katerina who was always available for help or information

First a foremost, the host Katerina is an amazing and caring host - she's the perfect host. Always willing to help, she genuinely cares that you're having a good time and went above and beyond to make sure my stay was a great one. It's a beautiful location, very tranquil and a small community. The facilities of the villa are everthing you'd need from a lovely pool, perfectly positioned hot tub on the upstairs balcony with views across the valley and sea. The villa also has mod cons such as washing machine, dishwasher etc to make your life that little easier. I stayed in the beautifully designed villa, Villa Aladonas and could easily accomodate a large group of friends or large family. There's plenty of outdoor seating, 3 parasols and tables etc. Aircon in every room. You're far away from all the house, however the walk down to Kalyves which has a lovely beach is a great walk. If you have a car, even better! I'd recommend either villa as I saw the other one too and I certainly recommend Katerina as a host.

We had a wonderful stay here. Highly recommended if you are looking for somewhere a little off the beaten track but still easily reachable and well located for the main attractions of western Crete. The village is beautiful and has its own taverna - there are many others a short drive away.

The host is super welcoming and helpful, the house is clean and well-equipped and the view from the hot tub is stunning! I hope to return.
