We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful designed villa which was a perfect for our family. We loved the pool and the view. The kitchen was really well appointed and had everything we needed. Maria was a great host with exellent communication and gave us some good tips on restaurants and beaches in the area. Wish we could have stayed longer and hope to come back one day!!!
One thing is for sure, you are going to have a GREAT time at Poliana estate.
We had the 2 bedroom villa which was the ideal holidays with all the comforts of your own house.
Primarily, you have all the touristic spots close to you for exploration (Agios Nikolaos, Stoupa, Kardamili), but most importantly, even if you're too lazy to go out, you get to enjoy all your meals (which you can prepare at the kitchen, it has EVERYTHING), your coffee or your drink at your own private veranda gazing at the Mediterranean view: the sea, the sun and the summer breeze. For us it was therapeutic!!
Poliana estate was recommended to us by friends. We visited in June 2017 with our 2 children age 3,5 and 1 year old already walking baby. We mentioned that when booking so we were given a home where we could park the car right outside the door and unload every piece of 300 pieces of luggage we had with us. I usually bring with me a blender and water kettle for the baby but everything I needed I found in the fully (to say the least) equipped kitchen. You actually do not need to bring anything as it is all taken care of,including dish detergent and kitchen towels. I will only say that there were even food containers available. All very clean and in excellent state. The house we stayed in was a 2 bedroom/2 bathrooms one and had everything even a dvd player and washing machine! Very very clean and I mean even for the standards of a mother of a 1year old baby who just learned to walk and falls all the time. Maria and Kiki very kind,polite and helpful and the brochure with info and places to visit nearby was totaly unexpected! Really upgraded our stay (as if the rest was not enough)!As my youngest has the habit of putting little fingers inside the electric plugs I always carry with me covers for the plugs which I also used during our stay. Upon departure we were asked by the owners if we missed something/if anything in our opinion needs improvement and I mentioned the plug covers saying also that it was a stretch and that I do not consider that a hotel/rental home should have them. The answer I received was that they do indeed have plug covers! So, my advice is if you are missing something ask for it as I am confident they have already thought of that or they can make it happen. Will surely return as soon as possible!
The villa is in a great location, just a short drive from Agios Nickolas with its many taverna's on the harbour front. Stoupa, a few km away is great for sandy beach, with many taverna's servicing the sunbeds. The villa is as it looks in the pictures, lots of space, very clean and comfortable. There were regular linen changes and villa cleans, many more than I had anticipated. On arrival there was a small selection of goodies (wine, water, butter, olive oil, S&P, washing up liquid) to use. Kiki is the contact and is very helpful as were the rest of the team. Recommend a drive to the caves (1 hour south), A wonderful 2 week holiday and will certainly be returning.
we went there last september for three days the house was amazing the langlord (kiki) super gave us instructions where to go and what to do and i havent been in a better house for holidays we will back ...
We stayed at Poliana for 2 weeks in July. The location is great - you are a short walk away from a Pattanzi beach where you can find a taverna and a bar. Also, Agios Nikolaos is a slightly longer walk or short drive away and there are plentiful restaurants, bars, cafes, banks and supermarkets.
the estate has a about 10 villas of different sizes - all recently constructed and all in very good condition. there are two pools to choose from and most of the time they were empty. we never had a problem getting a sunbed or found the pools busy.
we stayed in a two bedroom villa. the villa is airconditioned and well fitted. the kitchen is small but there is a washing machine, coffee machine, kettle etc. there is no dishwasher though. the cooker was very clean. Everything is pretty much as you see in the pictures. Also, our linen and towels were changed on a 3 or 4 day cycle which was nice.
we only had a few issues with the villa. first, the lack of a dishwasher is annoying. Second, the water pressure seemed to be erratic - I am not sure whether this was just our villa or a more general problem. for example, if the gardener turned on a hose, the pressure in the villa would drop. third, the hot water would be quite tepid from time to time. again, this could just have been our villa. finally, the annex below our villa was occupied by the caretakers which was disappointing as we didn't get the privacy we thought we would get.
