“Stunning villa with the perfect view”
Reviewed 10 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018
1
person found this review helpful

- We stayed for 8 nights, 4 adults and 4 children
- The villa is located in the remote village of Mariou. Perfect if you want something quiet and relaxing
- The landscape is beautiful and well maintained, with a little playground for small children and table tennis
- The private pool is amazing and offers a great alternative to going down to the beach. There are 8 deck chairs to sunbathe next to the pool
- When the landlord heard that we would come with a 6 months old baby, he supplied a little baby swing for the garden, baby cot and high chair
- The villa is very new and spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It is built to a very high standard. It was clean and has contemporary decoration
- The roof terrace is perfect for relaxation. It is also completely shielded from the wind in the summer months. It is possible to remove the sun roof and enjoy the beautiful night sky
- The villa's kitchen is well equipped and there wasn't anything we didn't find. There is even a barbecue with all the equipment needed
- The living space is large with TV and eating areas
- The veranda has a large eating area, ideal for breakfast, lunch and dinner
- The cleaning was offered twice a week with new towels
- We couldn't find a spot on the premises that wasn't covered by wi-fi
- The agency frequently checked in with us to see if everything was well and if anything was missing
- Taverna Mariou is literally 100 meter from the property down the hill. It has raving reviews and is an absolute hit with locals and tourists. If you don't feel like sitting down, they let you know when the food is finished for pick up and eating at the villa
- No other tourists will disturb you out there
- The villa is accessible via old and narrow country roads. The agency will provide the coordinates for Google Maps. Don't be surprised by the roards and keep on going (don't use car GPS)
- Supermarkets can be found in Plakias, but we recommend to pick up all essentials at Lidl in Rethimno which you will pass when coming from the airport
- Preveli and Shinaria beaches can be reached in only 15 min
- The booking experience was very straight forward
- Communication with the agent was prompt and no issues with deposit and payments
- The recommended local car rental saved us quite some money compared to the bigger brands and turned out to be a very good service

Dear Simon,
Thank you for your 5 star review. Plakias Sunset villa is really a brand new property with contemporary decoration, beautiful landscape and amazing views. It is very well equipped and of course exterior areas are specially designed to offer moments of pleasure. The location is ideal, with many unique beaches within a 15-minute drive. Mariou tavern is also a hot spot of the place with local specialties and only 100 m from the villa. We are very happy that your holidays were full of enjoyable and relaxing moments. Our aim is to take care of you while you are resting by the pool. We hope to see you again in one of our properties.
Thank you!
