The villa location is quite good due a great proximity to the main street of Agia Marina with hundreds of shops and restaurants, a few really good local taverns and, of course, the famous and well managed sandy beaches. But - you will need a car to get up to the hill! By car you can also easily reach from there all famous "must-see" places around in the Chania region.
The villa itself is quite spacious, it is very well maintained and looks like on the pictures. It is very clean (service twice a week, including changing the bathroom and beach/pool towels). The kitchen is very well equipped with all you will need plus some basic supplies like salt, tea, sugar, oil, etc...(+ a welcome basket from thehotel.gr, very nice!) There are several places to sit and have a meal: by the pool, in the garden at the barbeque, on the balcony, on the veranda, and indoors as well. All the rooms are air-conditioned and have anti-mosquitos nets on the windows.
The garden and the pool are nice and really large, there is everything you need and it is a very private place - nobody can see you at all - and it is also kids friendly!
The Internet was a kind of a problem in the beginning but after reporting to the owners they have now installed a separate wi-fi access point in the villa, that made the connection fast and reliable on the ground floor.
I have to specifically mention the view from the garden and also from the huge and elegant balcony on the sea and mountains, which is magnificent and breathtaking! You will enjoy the lovely sunsets maybe with a glass of Champagne - very romantic!
You may need to close all the windows during the night due to a traffic noise from the national road which is not so far and also barking dogs and crowing cocks around.
The kind-size bed in the master bedroom on the first floor is very squeaky when you turn or move and the mattress is very hard, so I had a pain in my back in the morning. I had to sleep in a separate small room most of the time, there - as well as in the other bedrooms - it was OK.
Our experience with TheHotel.gr was very positive, they were very attentive and helpful. Mrs. Mary - thank you very much!!
We definitely plan to come over again next year!
