“Amazing holiday”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were a large group of 3 families with children between 3-9. The villa was perfect for us with plenty of space and things to do. Stelios and Maria were very welcoming and keen to help. They cooked us a couple of lovely meals which were very reasonable and great in the comfort of the villa. The villa is in a village with a couple of tavernas in walking distance and outside Rethymnon which is well worth a visit with some great restaurants, shops and beaches It's close to sandy beaches and beaches good for snorkelling and about an hours drive from Heraklion and Chania. We all love it and would happily go back to stay again. Huge thanks to Stelios and Maria, Kostas and Sophia from ETouri.

“Fabulous spacious villa for a large group with active children!”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were two families - related - (five children, ages 8 to 13), including Grandma to make a total of ten people for one week from July 9 to 16, 2016. The villa was clean, spacious, well cared for, comfortable and well equipped. Issues were quickly resolved (i.e. there was a small wasp nest on the grounds and once we requested it be removed it was done immediately). There were really no other issues at all - the swimming pool was the highlight - great fun for the children and adults. The basketball court was also a hit and the football pitch as well - especially in early morning before the heat rose too much. We had a super meal at Stelios and Maria's house/garden next door. The many areas to sit/eat on the terraces or on the grounds were a plus. A very short drive away (or walk) in the village of Pigi is a small shop with everything you might need, as well as a well equipped pharmacy and a butcher/dairy shop. Also, a restaurant with tables under a lovely big tree where we ate (twice) like kings at a very affordable rate. We loved our vacation at Villa Mary and highly recommend it!

“Spacious, Beautiful & Scenic”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

After spending many hours searching for a location suitable for a large group of friends, it was a pleasant surprise to find such a stunning villa available. Upon our arrival, we noticed how beautiful and well equipped the villas surroundings lands are, including a great sized basketball court with a sheltered table tennis area, a perfectly sized and incredibly deep swimming pool, a football pitch plus plenty of areas to set up a sun lounger and enjoy some Greek sunshine, of which there is an abundance of.

Once we had unpacked and settled into villa Mary, we realised how large and spacious the property is, we never once felt cramped or on top of each other. Our preferred seating area was the top floor balcony, with spectacular panoramic views of Crete's mountain ranges and its blue-flag beaches, why would we sit anywhere else, even though there was plenty of other seating areas available such as the ground floor balcony or the outside garden table.

Although the beaches were further away than expected, that didn't bother us at all, being away from the hustle and bustle of Rethymnon was more important. I would definitely suggest hiring a vehicle of some sort if you're considering to venture or explore the local area like we did, though both the buses and taxies appeared to be very fitting. It is important to note that the small village of Pigi was less than a 5 minute walk, in which there is a supermarket, butchers and a few bars/eateries so transportation links aren't essential.

Finally, I would like to say thank you to Stelios and his wife for giving us the opportunity to experience the beautiful island of Crete, while staying in an equally beautiful villa.

“Beautiful villa, great location and wonderful hosts.”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Villa Mary is beautiful and suited the thirteen of us perfectly. There was lots of space both inside and out and everything was spotless. The pool was large and deep which suited our teenage children. They also made good use of the football pitch and basketballl court. The owners Stelios and Maria lived behind the villa and were very friendly and welcoming. They were also amazing cooks! We ate in their garden taverna every night and the home grown and cooked meals were delicious(as was the home made wine and raki!) and amazing value. A fantastic holiday!

“Lovely villa where we were made very welcome by the owner and his wife”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stelios and Maria welcomed us on our arrival with raki and cheese tarts and their hospitality continued throughout our 2 week stay. They offer lunch and dinner menus which we tried on several occasions and with which we were never disappointed, whether in taste or value for money. They often used products from their own garden which were delicious.
The villa is roomy and the pool is large and very welcome in the Cretan heat.
The basket ball court and 'park' with swings etc were a welcome addition to keep the children amused.
There is a Taverna a short walk down the road which is very good and a few local shops (butchers and bakery) where icecreams can be bought for the children whilst the adults have a quiet drink.
There are some stone and some marble steps at the villa which concerned me when we arrived but the children soon got used to them and we had no accidents.

I thoroughly recommend Villa Mary (although a toaster would be a useful addition to the kitchen)

“Wonderful place for a large family holidays”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have chosen this villa as a place for the extended family get together on the beautiful Crete island. The villa is quite nice, spacious and offers all facilities one would need to enjoy holidays, including a very nice and large swimming pool, sports facilities, barbecue place, entertainment, etc. Besides, the owners, Stelios and Maria, would fix for your company an excellent dinner at their little tavern in the adjacent garden per order, in addition to being very nice and pleasant people in general. The villa is cleaned every third day or so with turning down beds' linen and towels so an adequate hygiene is ensured. The villa is located in a quiet village some 3 km from nearest beaches so renting cars is recommended although there is a public buss stop right next to the villa. The car parking area of the villa is large enough for 3 mid-sized or 4 small cars, which is quite convenient for a large group of people having different ideas about visiting the places around the island. In general, villa is located close to Rethymno so many places of interest are not too far away. We would certainly recommend this villa to group holiday makers.

We stayed at villa Mary with a group of 12 friends for one week, and had an absolutely wonderful time. The villa's two apartments are clean and well furnished, while the outdoor facilities (pool, basketball court and football field) made sure we were never bored. The owner and his family also took excellent care of us, even going as far as to accompany us to the hospital when one of us injured herself while playing football. The food they have on offer, lastly,is highly recommendable (as is his homemade raki).We would certainly go back if we had the chance!
