We stayed here for four nights recently and couldn't have been happier. Ippo welcomed us on the first evening with keys and full description of the villa: 3 bedrooms with a family room, kitchen, and our own pool! After a week of close quarters (i.e., small European hotel rooms), our family of four was grateful for the chance to spread out, make a few of our own meals, and relax. The villa was clean, very modern, and well laid-out. It had 3 levels, each with a balcony and/or patio, so you are enjoying the incredible views wherever you are. We didn't want to leave to go sightseeing each day.
My one caveat: the villas have incredible views because they are built on a steep hill overlooking Elounda. Climbing the driveway in your car is not for the faint-of-heart! The basic drill is as follows... 1) Put your car in first gear; 2) Floor it!;) and, 3) If there are cars coming down the driveway the same time you're going up, you have the right of way. We never did have to test #3, thankfully, but our little VW Polo did cough and even stall (twice) on this steep (1/2-mile?) stretch of road. A little harrowing, but we'd still stay there again because *every* other aspect of the villa was outstanding.
