I had read all the reviews and expected the villa to be nice but it completely exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival Gaby greeted us and felt like royalty being whisked off to the villa. We were amazed to find the fully stocked fridge and treats awaiting us, moussska in the oven and toys in the garden and pool.
The villa is immaculate and attention to detail is perfect - exactly as you see it in the photos. The kids loved the garden and pool. Our pool was not heated so was quite cool but didn’t stop the children enjoying it.
Gaby was a perfect host and available to help or answer any questions. Our son broke the insect screen by accident and Gaby was so kind and didn’t charge us for repair - despite our offer.
We used the hire car that Gaby organized for us to travel across Crete. A car is definitely needed if you want to explore Crete further afield. We found it useful that the grocery store and local villages were in walking distance.
I would definitely return to Pandora villas and won’t hesitate to recommend it to all our family and friends.
This villa is everything that you want from a top notch holiday villa. The hosts are wonderfully friendly and the villa itself is beautiful and stocked with everything that you could think of.
Location is just right for Crete- beautiful traditional villages within walking distance, yet close to many attractions in the wider area.
I don’t usually write reviews, but this time I’ve made an exception, as the place was exceptional. If going back to Crete I’d go straight back here every time.
(Reasonably priced too!)
Beautiful villa, in a very quiet location approximately a 5 min walk into old
Very clean, well maintained, fully equipped, with so much more than any normal villa rental.
Fantastic secluded pool, patio and immaculate garden area.
Gaby looks after you from booking to leaving and provides some fantastic extras, is available to assist at anytime, but is unobtrusive.
Fully stocked fridge, an amazing moussaka, towels( for pool too) and toiletries.
We also had an 8m old baby in our party and Gaby provided pretty much anything that was needed, pushchair, playpen, cot, high chair, bibs, nappies, sterilising unit.....
A beautiful birthday cake was also provided for us to celebrate at the villa.
Travel from and too the airport was also available.
The cute kittens that visited were another plus!
I would recommend this villa to anyone.
Cheers Gaby and Mano for our drinks too on our last night out too. X
I stayed here with my husband and two children for 11 nights and to say I was blown away is an understatement!!! From the moment we were met at the airport to the moment we left for home, we were treated like royalty! Gaby is an unbelievably kind and thoughtful person, who would do anything to please you...the fridge and cupboards were packed with food and drink, including a homemade Moussaka AND vegetarian dish for my daughter and me as we don't eat meat, the bathrooms had everything you could wish for and as for the villa itself, WOW....it was simply stunning in every way!!!
The villa is a short walk to two different villages, both of which were warm and welcoming with many lovely restaurants. Highly recommended are Zachos and Taverna Harakas in Old Hersonnisos...amazing food and staff.
This was simply our best holiday ever thanks to Gaby and her beautiful Villas....a must visit for everyone!!! You won't be disappointed. I was blown away by everything and was very sad to leave:-( I will most definitely be back though and soon! Thank you Gaby...missing you
We were told about Pandora Villas by a friend who had stayed a couple of times. To say we were completely blown away when we arrived would be an understatement. From the moment we were met at the airport and taking to the Villa where we met Gaby the owner, until the day we left we were made to feel so welcome and special. Gaby is honestly one of the nicest people we have ever met and really goes above and beyond to make your stay perfect. From the well stocked fridge and cupboards to the home made moussaka. There wasn't anything we needed. The location of the Villa is great and within easy walking distance to two small villages with great restaurants and shops. Gaby is always at hand for help and advice. This was honestly the best holiday we have ever had.
I can’t recommend this villa highly enough, we will be back :)
We travelled as a family with 2 children. Gaby and her husband have 4 amazing immaculate villas where one can really relax. The fridge and cupboards are really well stocked and the pool and grounds are maintained daily. From the minute they pick you up at the airport and throughout your stay, Gaby ensures you have everything you need...and more. She will introduce you to the best beach, the best restaurants and places to go to. Her German roots show in the way the villas are presented and cleaned, she is fussy and therefore everything is immaculate! She also has a big heart and will ensure the kids are happy and will leave your fridge with delicious food and homecooked dish. We were sad to leave and have fond memories, thank you Gaby!
This is quite simply the best villa holiday you could imagine. Gaby was the most incredible host who thought of everything. The fridge and cupboards were full of food and there was even a moussaka in the oven. She looked after us so well throughout the holiday and made us feel like part of the family. She even brought round a fantastic cake and champagne for my son's birthday. The villa itself and the pool are stunning with everything you could possibly want. It is beautifully decorated throughout and my sons were delighted to find musical instruments and a Playstation in the basement. The location is perfect, being walking distance from two towns, with lots of lovely restaurants and shops and everyone was so friendly. We were so sad to leave and will definitely be going back!
