“Lovely Holidays!!!!”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were traveling through all the island of Crete and were looking for an accomodation in Heraklion which was Micheal's house where we stayed for 5 days..
The area is very peaceful, quiet, safe and very beautiful.Michael's house is very neat and clean. You will have your privacy without interruption.Michael was fantastic and always available for any questions or concerns.
Thank you

Amazing villa in a gorgeous, quiet and friendly village!! Ideal for families who like to escape the busy towns, although only a short ride away for days/nights out!!
We all had a great time, the villa was all we expected and more!! Amazing facilities and Michael was more than helpful when we needed assistance!! An excellent holiday which we wish to repeat (hopefully next year!)

“Heavenly holiday destination”

Just returned from the most relaxing, perfect holiday that we have ever taken. The villa is idyllic, spacious, well equipped, and exceptionally clean and well maintained. Michael, the owner couldn't do enough for us, he arranged taxi's to collect us from the airport, laid on pizza's and provisions for our arrival, advised us on places to visit, tavernas etc. The pool was cleaned and maintained daily - and the villa thoroughly cleaned at least twice each week. The children (and adults) spent hours in the pool, and playing on the huge safe patio area - with shady areas which were needed, and plenty of sun bathing space too. We used the pizza oven, and the barbecue - brilliant facilities :-) The locals were friendly welcoming and generous, giving us free fruit each time we visited the shop. We felt 100% relaxed and safe, extremely happy to recommend this to anyone / everyone! I hope we can return very soon. Some of our group hired a car, which was a necessity, the village is small and quite remote. We also used the bus into Heraklion which runs at 7.30am, and returns at 2pm..... Good modern transport, running exactly on time! (Think this was only route from Episkopi)

“wonderful villa in a perfect location”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just returned from a two week holiday with a family group and I think it is possibly one of the nicest places I have stayed. Michael the owner was a lovely man who went out of his way to ensure our stay was well catered for. On arrival he arranged taxis from the airport, pizza, milk and beer at the villa which was most welcome after a late evening arrival. The villa was immaculate and was cleaned at least twice weekly and the pool was cleaned daily. I can't think of anything that wasn't perfect. My sons girlfriend booked it and it is a gem. Thankyou Michael. Jenny

“Fantastic Villa with a View.”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We chose this beautiful villa because it was not in Irakleio but was close enough to make trips to Knossos, local hikes and to various beaches. I cannot say enough good things about our host. From the water, juices, fresh muffins and other touches to the personal attention he gave us throughout our visit, Michael was absolutely fantastic to work with. After we checked out of the villa, I realized that I had left my camera bag in the villa. I called Michael and he graciously picked up the camera and drove it to me in Irakleio before our ferry departed. Absolutely above and beyond expectation. We were two families traveling together, with a total of 10 people. About 20 minutes from the port and airport. The villa fit us perfectly. The villa is meticulously clean and well-kept. The AC worked well. The washer worked well. The villa is spacious. We had some difficulty with the internet, but I believe Michael had it resolved in short order. The villa's pool is a refreshing respite to the Cretan sun. The view from the pool and patio area is absolutely beautiful. The entire patio space is incredible--a true extension of the villa's living space. The village is a short drive from the villa, and you can find a bakery, market, taverna and fruits there. The nearest supermarket is a little farther away, but not too difficult. Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer. We could easily have spent our entire Greek holiday in Michael's stunning villa.

“Wonderful break”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This fantastic villa is ideally located outside of the hustle and bustle of Heraklion, just a short 20min drive into the hills towards Episkopi. I would recommend a car for those confident driving abroad as taxi costs are somewhat elevated (35€ from airport to villa) that said, the taxi drivers are friendly and like tour guides so it's got it's plus points!
The villa is 10mins walk from a small village, Episkopi, although there is no footpath this is easily walkable during the day. There are a few bars which serve the usual imported/local beers. We found a great shop which sold everything you can possibly think of and the owner spoke perfect English which helped! There are a few little Taberna's to eat, though the best one (Michaels recommendation) we did not make it to.
The Villa itself is lovely, though there was confusion over the layout of the bedrooms. The spec on tripadvisor previously mentioned 3 double rooms, but it only has 2. On the plus side, the upstairs rooms now have Air conditioning. The pool is a decent size and was cleaned twice during our week stay. There are 3 large areas to sit and eat outside and the clay pizza oven and bbq were simply fantastic.
The villa was also thoroughly cleaned twice during our stay and Michael and his family were happy to help us settle in and provided pizza and a few beers on our arrival.
We visited WaterCity Aqua park which is 10 mins away, and spent a day at the beach in hersonissos as well as a day on quads rented from MotoX Experience in heronissos where we went down to Agios Nicholas, a lovely town on the East side of the island.
