“Absolutely Wonderful!!!” Dear Michael & Mary;
Thanks you so much for the use of your wonderful villa - it was perfect - so peaceful and private, and with every comfort and amenity one could ask for! The pool was awesome and we really enjoyed each day, swimming, tanning, walking along the beach and eating at the "Lamb in Oven" restaurant down the street! You have spoiled us and from now on, wherever we travel, we have decided: no more hotels - we have to have our own "Villa"!
We stayed at Villa Helios for two weeks in August. Staying in the Villa were 2 families, 4 adults and 3 children. The villa had plenty of room for all of us. It is extremley well equipt with everythin… More
Dear Mandy, thank you very much for your review and for your good words!
You were also distinguished guests and we are looking forward to welcome you again in Maleme! Best regards! Mary and Michael

We are a family of 5 who has been staying in this Villa each summer for 8 years, and as you can understand there is a reason why we are returning each year. For us, this is the perfect vacation. Crete… More
This is exactly what we want. To make our guests (friends) feeling like home! Thank you Yngvar for your long lasting faith and for your friendship. We love you all! We are looking forward to meeting you again next year!
“Lovely apartment in a beautiful and unspoilt Cretian village” This apartment is in a small complex which is very well looked after, clean and quiet. The pool when it's lit up at night is beautiful. The apartment was very spacious and clean and had free wifi which was great for keeping the teenagers happy !
The village of Panormo was a short walk and was very pretty with its cobbled streets and flowers, it was very unspoilt and had lovely restaurants by the sea. The location was central so it wasn't too far to visit other towns and attractions on Crete - the island of Spinalonga is a must to visit.
The sea was warm (even when it was raining) and just down the road from the apartment was a great spot for snorkeling off the rocks. There were sandy beaches in the village.
The owner was very helpful with emails and information before and after our holiday - we would thoroughly recommend.
“Perfect house for a large family. Higly Luxury.” Perfect house for a large family. Excellent service, excellent house specially when the weather is to outdoor avtivities. inside it will be a bit difficult to eat many persons together. (we were 14). NIce big clean pool and a very nice garden with fruittrees. Perfect location near the sea, restaurants and shopping.
“A lovely house, a gorgeous setting and every amenity we needed. Highly recommended!” We loved staying at Aloe villa. It offered every convenience for a family holiday, such as easy access to beautiful beaches (5 mins drive), to the village supermarket, restaurants and cafes(300m), to a big city(Rethymno,10mins drive). At the same time it was serene enough or us to feel the peace and quiet associated with an island holiday. Dusk, with only the birds singing and no other noise was our favourite part of the day. The house itself was impeccably clean and well-kept and easy to get around for our toddler. We are planning to return next summer with friends.
“Fantastic villa in a beautiful valley” We have visited twice now with our 2 children and parents. The villa is ample size to accommodate us all comfortably. There is nothing quite like the feeling of diving into the pool on a hot sunny day (i.e. every day in Crete!). The kids loved the pool. In the evening it is fantastic sitting on the veranda watching the sunset over the mountains opposite. The villa is on a peaceful site and not overlooked. A short (12-15mins walk, 4-5 mins in car) distance away is the bay of mykrigialos where there are loads of restaurants and bars to choose from. There is a great nightlife that would better suit families and young professionals wanting to unwind, more than 18-30years olds wanting to go wild (Malia would suit them better). There are great days out to be had nearby including some fantastic gorges to walk up (with the chance to cool off in crystal clear streams along the way!). We had a great time and plan to go back. Ron and Linda have worked hard to make sure visitors have a great stay and the villa was clean and well-maintained.
From the moment you step into this apartment you know the owners look after it. It is beautifully presented and they seem to have thought of everything it even has a full size pub pool table!!! The dr… More
