Villa South Crete is a wonderful place to be. As a family of 5 persons (3 adults, 2 teenagers) we had plenty of space for everyone to retreat with the clean & modern house, the charming garden and the cool seaside cove & private jetty. We’ve rented many villas in Crete, but the unique setting of this villa captured all our senses: The daily morning dip in the calm sea; enjoying the water sports activities at the near-by beaches & savoring the traditional meals served at the many good taverns just a few driving minutes away. Our favored spots were Makrigialos (relaxed & friendly port & beach atmosphere) & the “long beach” (great water sports) at Koutsounari. A must taste is the sea food Taverna “Gorgona” at the port of Iérapetra. The villa owner is most generous and hospitable. We felt like we were visiting rather a dear old friend then an anonymous villa. Pros: clean & modern house with all amenities, very personal atmosphere, great location & private access to the sea, close-by to super markets, taverns & beaches (with or without water sports), easy access with car, good price value.

The owner of the property an excellent man a real gentleman, a very kind person. It is only a few house in the Mediterranean which knows everything in one. Perfect location, perfect house, perfect owner, and perfect sea and weather. We shall return in any case.

Julia (Hungary) – 2 August 2014

Situation ideale pour visiter l’est de la Crete, Vai, Zakros et Kato Zakros, etc. Pros: L’acces privé a la mer avec une petite grotte, des canoes de mer en libre accès.

Joachim (Germany) – 12 September 2014

For the lovers of solitude! Pros: Fantastic place, posh house, friendly owner, private beach, beautiful sea, great neighbors, complete privacy, large swimming pool with sea water. Cons: Unstable WiFi (probably because of the size of the house), no wall mounting for shower heads in the bathrooms.

Aleksandr (Russia) – 23 September 2015

The house was magnificent! Really very beautiful, comfortable and nicely decorated. Not like an usual house rental. This is the only house we would go back to and could stay all week just in the house. I have nothing better to say about the host. He was just incredible. He made our stay much much better even when my husband’s wallet was stolen at the Ferma Market, the host was so superb that it still made our vacation a pleasant one. Thank you so much for the hospitality. You are wonderful!

Rolf (Switzerland) – 11 April 2016

Wir 5 Erwachsene verbrachten vom 13. bis 23.Juni 2017 zehn wunderschöne Tage in diesem herrlichen ruhigen Anwesen. Das Haus war sehr sauber und genau so wie in der Beschreibung, einfach super. Die Aussenanlage war sehr liebevoll angelegt und sehr gepflegt (jeden morgen kam jemand für Pool und Garten). Das Willkommenspaket war super, hatten wir noch in keinen Ferienhaus. Charis der Besitzer war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und brachte alle paar Tage frisches Brot, Säfte etc.. Es klappte einfach alles perfekt, sei es Buchung, Anreise, der Aufenthalt. Fazit: Super Urlaub, super Wetter, super Anwesen.

Renate (Germany) – 2 July 2017

The villa was perfect. The best part was the private access to the sea. So nice to wake up and go for a swim. The villa was very peaceful. The owner Harry was very friendly. I look forward to go back to Crete one day.

Vitor (United Kingdom) – 12 August 2017

We were warmly greeted by the owner who had left a fridge full of local essentials, this was very thoughtful and saved us having to immediately go out to stock up. In the week he came and left us cakes and bread. We had a minor problem with the electrics which he responded to very quickly. Although we didn’t need the agents they contacted us regularly by phone to check we were having a good holiday and asking whether they could be of any assistance. Pros: Lovely location, spacious villa, wonderful host. A car proved very useful however we did see people using buses on a regular basis. Cons: No disadvantages, it was everything we wanted.

David (United Kingdom) – 11 August 2018

We loved the house, the pool and the private beach. The owner was so friendly and made our stay perfect! Cons: The house was perfect. Nothing to comment.

Heidi (Norway) – 21 July 2018

Wir durften zu sechst eine traumhafte Woche in Südkreta in der Villa South Crete verbringen. Aber Achtung: Die Bilder untertreiben damit, was einen an diesem Ort erwartet! Eine wunderschöne, gepflegte Villa mit einem riesigen paradiesischen Garten, der zahlreiche schöne Plätzchen unter Palmen und diversen Bäumen bietet um zu verweilen, zu sonnen oder im Schatten auszuruhen. Dazu führt ein privater Meerzugang direkt ins kristallklare Meer Südkretas, ein grosser Pool bietet Entspannung und der sehr nette und gastfreundliche Vermieter Charis kümmert sich sorgsam um alles!

Michele (Germany) – 24 July 2018

A truly incredible home in a stunning part of Crete. I would absolutely recommend this large and stunning home for any travelers, families, sets of couples, or just friends. Far enough away from the frantic tourist areas of the north, but with lots of options for activities all around, this home and location is a perfect balance of relaxation and action. The overall area is exceptionally beautiful, with mountains and villages serving as a backdrop to the ocean, with numerous small and secluded beaches, as well as a number of larger organized beaches. The home is marvelous. Modern, clean, air conditioned, with all amenities and spacious, offering fantastic views of the ocean as well as the incredible and meticulous gardens and pool, which are maintained daily by the owner and his team. There are countless nooks, seating areas and places to enjoy the view, a drink, or a book. The ocean is literally at the end of the garden, with either steps, or a big jump leading into the blue water…. it is just spectacular, including the separate ‘lounging’ area, under the cabana, right at the water’s edge.
