Incredible Villa
Villa Naya had the perfect balance of space, amenities and location. We had an amazing family vacation. All the bedrooms have something special about them and the outdoor living space is brilliant. Swimmingly and lounging by the pool in the afternoon after a morning swim at the beach was so relaxing since the house is isolated from the noisy beach and town. Ping pong tournaments. Exercise equipment. And we could eat outside while the sun was setting! It’s a short walk to the beach and along the way you can pick fresh figs. Any questions we had were answered by Kosta and Natassa right away. We would definitely go back!

Perfect villa for family getaway
Perfect location, on a hill with no neighbours, great view of the town and beach but only a 10-15 minute walk down. Cheap taxis back. Lots of indoor and outdoor space for a family of 9. Brilliant pool, outdoor shaded eating area with BBQ, excellent hot tub. Very private location. Etouri and the owners were great, very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. 2 grandparents, 4 parents, 1 teenager and 2 pre-teens all had a great time, something for everyone.

Outstanding!
In a nutshell, far exceeded our expectations. Had a family reunion in Crete with family coming from Myanmar and from California (long story). My son found Villa Naya on TripAdvisor and it looked and sounded great so we booked about 6 months ahead. Since we were the first to stay for the 2019 season the owner Natasha (Hi Natasha and THANK YOU again!) opened up for business just before we arrived. Being the first arrivals for the new season, there were a few hiccups that occurred during our 2 week stay, but nothing worth mentioning here. What is important to point out was that Natasha immediately addressed the issues and we couldn't have been more pleased. We paid for the pool to be heated and it was great! We also used the hot tub daily and the BBQ quite a bit. Both were also great. The pool guy was cleaning the pool and hot tube every morning and cleaning service arrived every 3 days to change linen and clean the floors. Was wonderful. Kostas, the Property Manager from Etouri management was extremely prompt, professional yet very personable with all of his business and helpful emails. The Isle of Crete, Villa Naya, and Etouri management all far exceeded our expectations and we truly had a trip of a lifetime for my entire family. Thank you all!

Second Visit - Still perfect!
I don't normally write a second review, however, after returning to Villa Naya again this summer, I just wanted to confirm that this villa has been maintained to the highest standards. My previous review (July 17) still stands, this remains a fantastic villa, immaculately maintained, still enjoying seclusion with far reaching views over the coastline and Rethymnon town, yet only a few minutes away from the resort centre and beaches. If anything, the service this year from Kostas and the Etouri team was even better, the concierge service for booking taxi's, restaurants etc worked perfectly and the wonderful owner, Natasha is the perfect host. Both Villa Naya and Etouri remain very highly recommended!!

First class
Spent a week at Villa Naya in the middle of May. We were taken aback on arrival at how lovely it is and the view from the villa is breathtaking! All the rooms are very comfortable and everything is very high spec. You don’t need to worry about bringing the normal bits and pieces for self catering as it is all there. Beautiful pool and enjoyed watching spectacular sunsets in the jacuzzi. We met the manager and owner who did everything to make our stay enjoyable. First class.

Fantastic villa, fantastic service!
Just one piece of advice to anyone unsure about whether to book this one - JUST DO IT! Villa is unreal - sparkling clean, totally modern (electric blackout blinds in every room), peaceful and quiet and not overlooked, surrounded by trees and goats and with amazing views. Lift, various balconies to enjoy, all beds comfy and clean, table tennis and pool table were awesome. We stayed April/May and with the pool heating the large pool was lovely and warm (circa 26 degrees). Walk into town is 5-10 mins to bars and restaurants on seafront. Water sports centre as well. Supermarket at bottom of hill. PERFECT LOCATION. Etouri Villa Rentals are clearly a company that is up and coming and looking to grow by reputation, and I have to say the service was second to none. Everything as described and expected, and frequent communications made us feel that they were always on hand if we needed help with anything. Our party has lots of experience with expensive villa holidays and we all agreed that these guys should be charging more for what they offered. I have already recommended the villa to friends and family, and will certainly be looking at all Etouri Villa offerings first for our next holiday. Great job guys - will see you again I'm sure!

Villa naya
We have just spent 2 weeks in the fabulous Villa Naya in Rethymnon . The villa is amazing , we have stayed in a lot of villas in different countries but villa Naya is by far the best , it has everything you could possibly wish for and more , there isn't one thing I could think of that would make the villa any better and we made use of everything . The pool table and ping pong table got lots of use by the men and the cinema room was great for the little one as were the toys . The hot tub was a big hit with everyone . There was also a spare cot that could be wheeled outside for the baby so he could always be with us . Natasha was brilliant , she was there to greet us when we arrived (very late) and had got groceries in for us to last a few days and also ordered us pizzas as we hadn't eaten . Best pizzas ever from the pizza restaurant on the corner !! The town is easy to walk to and has lovely shops and restaurants , also a harbour with lots of places to eat around it . The beech is also within walking distance . A trip to Baja beach was arranged for us all to have free entry for a day to and we had a gazebo , sun beds and towels and also a bottle of wine , all complimentary , lovely day . Any problems we had or if we wanted to know anything , Sophia was at the end of the phone to help us . Nothing was to much trouble . Natasha came in with cleaners one day and gave a box full of pastries for our breakfast and on the last day we had late flights an we were allowed to stay on until 6pm when we could drive straight to the airport . We would highly recommend Villa Naya and can't wait to go back

A wonderfully equiped and spacious villa
We had an amazing stay at villa Naya. There were 10 of us ranging in ages between 19 and 90 and the villa was perfect for us all. On arrival it was exceptionally clean and there some were welcoming provisions. There is a ample room for everyone. The facilities at the villa are very good. We ate out a lot and there are ample restaurants to choose from, but the kitchen is well equipped if you want to cook there. The villa company offer help as required with such things as arranging taxis, booking dinners etc etc. My did hire a car and that was a huge help as our niece was on crutches at the time and not able to walk a great distance. I would thoroughly recommend this villa.
