Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fantastic Western Crete Villa Nr Chania
At the last minute had to find a place as our original villa unavailable at last moment Jennifer stepped in to save the family holiday and was so helpful even though she had to pull some favours in, for which we were so grateful The villa itself was perfect with lots of open space, great facilities, and fantastic views. The neighbours were lovely too. So close to good beaches and restaurants too, but far enough away to be peaceful. Can’t recommend enough and will certainly return when back in Crete. Thanks again Jennifer

Simply stunning
This villa is beautifully located with panoramic sea views. Ample balconies so you can soak up the sun, or find a nice cool corner in the shade. Fully equipped with all mod cons, dishwasher and aircon in all bedrooms. The bedrooms are downstairs, and although on the small side, have plenty of storage, and access to the pool. The outside areas are beautifully set up, lots of s pace, and safe and secure (if you have little ones). We spent a lot of time on the upstairs balcony taking in the sea views and Chania background. The pool area is big enough for everyone with lots of your 'own space' . The pools are clean, and well maintained. Communication with the owner was helpful and fast. Wi-Fi not so reliable, but that is a Cretan problem we found, not the villa. (Company did come out and sort it) We had an amazing fortnight in this lovely, modern, spacious and beautiful part of Crete. Thank you.

Beautiful Villa with amazing views and perfect location
The villa was beautifully positioned in Kokkino Chorio to take in sea views and as a family consisting of two children under 5, 2 parents and 2 grandparents, it had everyone we required to have a very comfortable holiday. It was an added bonus to have the separate children's pool which was ideal for our 4 and 2 year old. The BBQ round the pool was great for evenings where we preferred not to eat out and it was amazing to see the Crete sunset. The location was great and we enjoyed the local beaches of Almyrida and Kalyves and the gentle shelving sea meant it was great for the kids. These were also great places for dinner as well as the the local village of Plaka (under 5 minute drive). The owner Jennifer was extremely helpful through the booking process and and provided extensive information on the local area etc. Overall I would highly recommend this Villa and its location and would not hesitate to return.

Beautiful villa, so many balconies!
This is a beautiful and well equipped villa. Such a choice of balconies meant we could always sit in the sun or shade, whatever we wanted. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the peaceful long balcony overlooking the bay, but we did manage to have some days exploring Chania, Rethymno, Knossos and Aptera. In the evenings, it was an easy 20 minute walk to the village of Plaka, with several good tavernas. We also ate a few times at the very friendly Ioannis Taverna in Kokkino Chorio itself which is a steep walk up from the villa but worth it, and an easy walk home again! I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to others.

Thank you for your lovely review. Glad you loved our villa as much as we do. We never tire of that amazing view and feel very lucky to have such fabulous bars and tavernas within walking distance. Both Plaka and Kokkino Chorio are unique locations away from the more touristy areas making them even more special. Regards Julia

Perfection on Earth!
We have now come here three years in a row and cannot recommend this beautiful home enough. The views are just stunning and the house is wonderful. It is great to be at the villa enjoying the pools and the views, and it is also fun to explore. There are lovely shops, a child friendly beach, and many restaurants close by... and if you wander further you can get to stunning secluded beaches as well as archaeological sites. The hosts are extremely helpful and the area is very quiet and relaxing. This is a perfect family spot!

Perfect holiday in a lovely villa with stunning views
A beautiful, well-presented villa in a perfect location, with stunning views, for exploring the local area. Ideal for the whole family as close to beaches, restaurants and bars to sample the local food and traditions, historic sites and opportunities for the more energetic to try scuba diving, waterpark and go-karting. The villa has a lovely pool and smaller one for the younger children. Facilities within the villa are excellent with everything you could need and very well presented. We had an amazing holiday - action packed but with time to relax at this lovely villa. We would definitely like to return and would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Bougainvillea to other holiday makers.

Breathtaking views and relaxing days!
We returned to this house after a fantastic holiday the previous summer. It was just as fabulous this time...a great place to be with a family. The kids lived in the pools...we also made trips to the beach and the local tavernas...This is a place we will return to again!

Beautiful villa with stunning views- a hidden gem!
We felt so lucky to find this amazing place...we were an extended family...6 adults and two children...7 and 3. The home is very comfortable with absolutely breathtaking views...amazing sunsets! You can spend time by the pool (with a children's pool as well)...grill at home or stroll into one of the neighboring towns for shops and restaurants. It is a great place to balance relaxing at home and exploring neighboring sights and beaches. We liked being away from the touristy crowds but also being close enough to drive just 10 minutes to the beach in Almyrida. The owner is very helpful...she has many good suggestions of places to try. We will definitely be returning to this fantastic home!

Très belle vue
Villa très confortable, très agréable avec une vue magnifique sur le golf. Très tranquille, terrasse piscine très sympathique, avec une piscine certes un peu petite (6m) mais malgré ttout suffisante pour se rafraîchir. Les environs sont très agréables et pas trop denses au niveau touristique. Très sympathique séjour, on vous conseille cette villa pour un séjour reposant en famille.

The pool is actually 7m long, 30m2. There is an additional shallow toddlers pool. We do not have a view of a golf course, but a beautiful rural and mountain view and incredible view over Souda Bay. Stunning!

1st Class villa!
We stayed as a family of 5 adults and one 3-year old child during July 2014. The villa is large, spacious and very well furnished. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the villa is the wonderful view from all windows, and we really enjoyed watching the sun setting over Souda Bay. The pool area is excellent and security gates ensured peace of mind that our adventerous 3 year-old could not access the pool herself. There are ample sunbeds, umbrellas and a large table and chairs. The barbecue is excellent, though there appeared to be a wasp nest nearby which made it impossible to eat in that area. The three bedrooms, though quite small are well furnished with attractive decor and air conditioning and ceiling fan. The only disadvantage is that you have to go through a bedroom to access the pool area (unless you go out of the front door). However, all bedrooms have their own access to the pool. This wasn't a problem as we were a family group but might not be so good if couples were sharing the accomodation. The living room / kitchen area is on the top floor and is spacious and very light with a large balcony. The kitchen is very well equipped and the living area very comfortable. This room enjoys the breeze from the sea and the two ceiling fans and shutters are all that is required to keep the room cool, though an A/C unit is also available. There are plenty of books, CD's, travel guides etc. and a very useful information pack. There was an excellent stock of beach towels provided and a cool bag for taking to the beach. Though we had a wonderful holiday and would definitely return I would not recommend the villa for anyone with mobility difficulties or families with babies or toddlers due to the number of stairs / steps and steep driveway. Car hire is essential.

Sorry to hear that you had a problem with wasps. The Management company would have been able to help with this, as there are ways to get rid of wasps. Glad you had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed our villa. We never tire of that amazing view.

How to get there

Souda Port provides a dock or cruise liners and the Athens ferry. For ferries to the other Greek islands you would need to go to Heraklion. There are buses from Almyrida in to Chania. Buses are available from Chania to Heraklion.A car is recommended. It is possible to walk down to Almyrida beach (with it's bars and restaurants) but it would be an uphill walk back.
