“excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

when it comes to accommodation on our holidays for me and my family we choose the place wisely and also pay good money for it and can say that we are also very demanding about it..well this villa absolutely amazed us..it was way beyond our expectations.the villa looked even better than the pictures show it and u will inderstand it only if u go and visit it.we got much more than agreed on.great hospitallity by the owners can say that our demanding nature had no place there..the owners was a lovely family which was more than helpfull in anything we needed and in the end we can absolutely call them our friends.overall we found what we were looking for and will definatelly keep going back every year from now on..a huge thanks to Eva for everything,see u soon!!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 15 February 2015 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Villa Kokalis from 12th till 19th of June. It is very close to Heraklion airport but far from noisy hotels so you can relax in calm atmosphere and reach many various restaurants around. Location is very comfotrable to make trips in all directions so we have seen many parts of Crete. We had a nice sea view and a lovely swimming pool. By the way, hotel manager was very helpful so if you need any kind of paper assistance you can ask for their help. We enjoyed our Crete vacations thank to Villa Kokalis, I would recommend it for travellers who want to spend nice vacations full of tranquility.

“Villa Kokalis – a peaceful wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 1 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014

By the time we arrived at Villa Kokalis, we were sure that this would turn to be a wonderful stay. It is situated outside the village of “Ano Gouves”, very close to Heraklion, surrounded by olive trees, a well neat garden and with BBQ facilities that exceed anyone’s expectations. The view from the balconies overlooking the olive trees are giving you the feeling that they end where the Aegean Sea is. This is just… breathtaking!

The air-conditioning in the bedrooms works brilliantly and actually is not really needed because the insulation and the cleverly designed villa interior.

All the latest amenities/electrical items such as a jacuzzi bath and Wi-Fi work perfectly.
The kitchen? A simple “Wow” will do!

The service was exceptional both from Mrs Eva and her husband Mr Antonis. Anything we could ask they could arrange it with just a phone call. They were incredibly helpful when requiring local information and other amenities.

One of the best bits we found about Villa Kokalis is that it is designed in such a way so that depending on the hour, you can always find either the sun or the shade in one of the different outdoor areas.

The BBQ area was great for the evening’s entertainment/meals as it caught the evening sun and the lovely pool was always clean and clear.

Heraklion, which is 15-20 minutes away from the villa, has everything. The traffic police have placed speed cameras and in some cases the reduction of speed is really unnecessary at some parts of the motorway and this is not a joke. Heraklion offers a great variety of things to do. From visiting archaeological sites/museums to either enjoy shopping or go a tour around the city or either find brilliant restaurants or bars. I am sure that if you ask Mrs Eva or Mr Antonis, they will suggest you the best choices.

If on the other hand you really prefer staying at the villa at all times then a short “escape’ the main beaches are only 5 minutes away and 20 minutes to some fantastic secluded beaches (I promised not to write down the names so all you have to do is just to ask the owners).

We are looking forward to return to this paradise! Thank you very much for everything!
