“Great for big group”

I stayed in September with 7 other people, and this place was perfect for us.

It's got totally stunning views, great rooms, and is fully stocked with everything you might need. They will bring ANYTHING to you at the villa you request. We even had them cook dinner for us one night, and it was incredibly delicious.

There is a lot to do on the actual property, from tennis, and stunning beaches, and awesome restaurants in walking distance.

It's also priced very reasonably for the wonderful service you receive.

We had an epic time.

The only con is it's a bit of a drive from heraklion, so you would for certain need to rent a car. However you feel very private, and the property is great.

How helpful were the directions to the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“A Lovely Villa on Its Own Slice of Cretan Coastline”

We stayed at Athena with a group of eight friends and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The villa offers stunning views of the coastline that few see.

The house itself was very clean and new. It's stocked with all kinds of kitchen supplies if you like to cook your own meals. But best of all is the deck and pool. Because of the shape of the peninsula, it faces west and you get sunsets over the sea, which was pretty special.

There's also a very small cove nearby with some of the best water on the island. Super relaxing and only a few people there.

I'd recommend this is place to anyone going to Crete. It's more suited for a relaxing, leisurely stay because of it's location. It's on a more secluded part of the island so it's a little more difficult to get out and explore, but that was completely OK with us. We had an amazing, relaxing week exploring nearby spots and sitting drinks at sunset from our pool deck. Can't beat it.
