“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Fantastic villa, views are outstanding, whether you want a sea view (sunsets out of this world) or mountain view (balcony off the kitchen was known as breakfast balcony). Really well equipped kitchen, coolbox ideal for taking to the beach, perhaps some barbie tools would have been useful. Bedrooms spacious and plenty of storage. Cleaning was excellent, towels provided for pool use was an added bonus.Basement area was great for the kids as it became their chillax area with TV/DVD and table tennis table. They also loved the hammocks on the balcony. Some comfier furniture on the balcony for watching the sunsets and shooting stars might be nice. Also stairs are quite steep so wouldn't be ideal for very young kids or anyone with mobility issues.

Owner/property company who manage it dealt with couple of minor issues we had promptly.

Ideal location, the sound of the cicadas from the surrounding olive grove is so typically meditarreanan, 5 mins walk from the tavernas of Plaka but also just 10/15mins walk to busier Almyrida.

5th time in Plaka, best villa we have stayed in and cannot wait to return!

“Amazing villa with beautiful views”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The views from the villa are amazing and it is in such a good location. Almyrida beach is really close by and beautiful or a I would thoroughly recommend a trip into Chania to eat at Semiramous (not entirely sure how to spell it!). The pool at the villa is equally perfect for chilling out and we made the most of the hammock chairs at the top of the villa!
Chris was brilliant with helping us to book cars and for directions/suggestions. Even if you don't book cars, there are plenty of day trips out and things to do.
The villa is clean and spacious (7 of us stayed and we had plenty of room) and is equipped with a BBQ and a cooker if you don't want to eat out every night. Can't recommend enough!

“Excellent views”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The views from the balcony were amazing like everyone says, the villa was clean and the pool was a good size as well we didn't hire a car but it was a short walk into the village where there was plenty of resterants and 2 mini markets and it took us only 15 min walk to the beach at alymida it was lovely and peaceful place to be also I would highly recommend megusta bicorna bar to have a nice cocktail drink the bar is just up the lane from the villa.we got the bus to chania from almyrida loads of lovely markets there.

“Fantastic villa with superb views”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great holiday in Villa Daymer. It is a clean, well presented villa with good facilities. Our children particularly enjoyed the lovely pool and the table tennis table. However, it is the spectacular views of the sea and White Mountains which make this such a wonderful place to stay. Also, the villa is very convenient for the restaurants and shops in Plaka and for the good beach at Almyrida. Many thanks to the owner, Chris, who could not have been more helpful.

“More than lived up to (high!) expectations -fabulous holiday”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The villa is so well appointed, everything you could need is there, but the real wow factor is the situation, and therefore, the views. Every evening, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony upstairs, looking across to the mountains and the sea, usually in sunshine. However, it was even more spectacular on the one evening we had storms - the lightning was fantastic.
Pool is great for cooling off and generally having fun in, plenty sunbeds and space around it.
Indoors, floors DO get slippery, be careful!
The village has a few raustaurants and bars, we ate out most nights and only had one disappointing meal. A little unexpected hidden gem was the Italian restaurant - when a change from Greek food was needed.
Car pretty much essential, we had multiple airport visits due to logistics, and it made it all straightforward
Visit the beaches, the waves are fab, Chania town - especially the old part,. Freshwater lake also a hit.

“yet again a wonderful holiday !”
Reviewed 9 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was our second stay in villa Daymer (our first was in july 2011 to mark my husbands 60 th birthday/retirement when he treated the entire family 2 sons and daughter +partners to a weeks holiday). The views of Souda Bay are exceptional ! the villa is huge and very well designed with lots of balconies.We have stayed in other properties in the area and this was easily the best. Chris and Linda were extremly helpful and prompt with replies.We have already booked for next year ,I think that says it all !!

“Daymer, fantastic villa in a brilliant location”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Summer 2014, and this is our third stay at Villa Daymer, that probably says it all.
Daymer is in a great location, just far enough out of the village of Plaka to be private and not overlooked, but close enough to be able to wander into Almyrida or Plaka (take a torch at night).
The villa is furnished to a high standard, with enough equipment to allow a full meal to be made if required. With the kitchen and living space on the top floor, you have the best views at any time of day and night.
The outside space, pool and furniture are brilliant, along with the garden containing shrubs and tree's providing plenty of shade when required, as well as screening from the quiet adjacent road that runs down to the rocky coastline, (well worth the walk and scramble tho').
The beach & sea at Almyrida is great for all ages, and there are plenty of quieter beach's within a short drive. The range of taverna's in Almyrida and Plaka means no shortage of choice for eating out.
The villa and pool maintenance staff were polite and efficient.
Over our three visits, our group size varied from 3 up to 7 people, all teens and older. The villa never seemed too small or crowded. Having stayed in Greece with three small children over the years, Daymer would certainly be child friendly (usual precautions with a pool and wet tiled floors !!).
Finally, the owners, Chris and Linda are the perfect hosts, attentive and friendly. Fingers crossed we will be back, and hopefully very soon.
