“What a fabulous villa”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2014

We arrived tired and hungry to be greeted by a fairy light lit paradise. The villa had everything anyone could possibly want. Our favourite space was the pool with loads of comfy sunbeams and shady areas with settees and armchairs! The barbecue and huge table was well used too. Plenty to see and do in the area, lots of lovely beaches and restaurants. Loved the mountain village taverna where you buy a beer and they just bring food- fabulous.

Owner's reply: So glad you liked it. Hope to see you again sometime

“A great base for a holiday if you want to stay away from the usual holiday spots”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2014

Our trip to Villa Danae was ideal. A peaceful villa - superbly finished with everything you could want for a holiday including very comfortable beds. Having reliable WiFi was also a big bonus for us. Quiet and peaceful but with plenty to do if you prefer, this is a great base for family or friend groups wishing to share a holiday base. We combined relaxing days by the pool with trips out to nearby towns and villages. Our particular favourites were a day trip to Spinalonga ( a short boat trip from Plaka) which was the setting for The novel 'The Island' stopping at Agios Nikolias on the way back and more locally the beach taverna at Makrygialos. A car is essential and be ready for rough terrain and interesting journeys if you are travelling at night. Overall this was a great holiday and a place which we hope to return to.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your feedback. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Tell your friends about us!

“Everything you would want is here”

Reviewed 31 May 2014

Just returned from a great holiday . Villa very comfortable both inside and out. Always a comfy seat/lounger in the shade or in the sun to suit your mood. The bed was the most comfortable I have had anywhere on holiday ever. The villa wanted for nothing in the entertainment or kitchen /dining areas. Everything had been well thought out to make the stay relaxing and hassle free. The sea view was enticing and prised us away from the sparkling villa pool to the town beach which was sandy . The water warm and clear, which made the beach/swimming easy. A couple of trips out to local tavernas and day trips to places of interest all added up to the perfect break.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your feedback. So pleased you enjoyed your stay

“Perfect family holiday”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2014

We visited Villa Danae with our 3 daughters and son in law. All were very impressed , particularly with the location, set on the hillside with stunning sea and mountain views and a feeling of seclusion, when we visited there were no occupants in the other 3 villas so it was very peaceful. Although a little way from the town we walked in to get our supplies (I recommend the butcher!!!) and also walked in the opposite direction to Dragons Cave ( a fabulous taverna which is open all year, unlike most in the area) and the beautiful bay at the bottom of the cliff opposite the taverna entrance. I would thoroughly recommend this villa if you are considering a holiday to Crete but go later in the year if you want water sports and restaurants.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your great review. We're so pleased you had a lovely holiday with your family

beautiful villa with excellent facilities. the onsite backup was also excellent. lovely welcome pack & pool well maintained. local restaurants and beaches were great & good value. weather could get a little breezy on the hill side though. would encourage anyone to visit this lovely island & this area gives opportunity for all family ages

Owner's reply: Thank you. So pleased you had a great holiday

“Peaceful, relaxing, welcoming and worth every penny.”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2013

I was first here two years ago and only broken fingers kept me away last year! It was an absolute joy to return to Villa Danae again this year. All was just as I remembered but now with the added bonus of a solar cover over the pool which has really increased the water temperature. The new gazebo is an excellent idea for shade as are the facilities for babies. It seems to me that all is needed now is for the parents to bring along the baby's clothes. I spotted everything from kitchenware, bedding, towels, toys, games and a spacious looking playpen, paddling pool, the list is endless. Well done to Kay and Steve Wright! They really have thought of everything it seems to me! Very impressed with all the facilities as before. Oh there is wi-fi too now! Weather was superb too! We arrived in a heat wave and so it went on for almost two weeks! Looking forward to my next visit already!

Owner's reply: We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you can return again one day


Reviewed 9 Sep 2011

We arrived at Bay View reception to meet Anja who took us to the Villa. When we started along the "road" it was a bit of a shock, it was unmade,if we had known this it would have influenced the model of car we would have hired, off roader might have been better. But oh whoa what a Villa; beautiful from the outside and wonderful inside. We were a party of eight adults age range 42yrs to 80yrs, 1 child almost 4yrs and a toddler 15months. We wanted for nothing with regard to equipment and furnishings supplied, perhaps the only one thing that I would change personally would be a proper cot for babies/toddlers instead of a travel cot.The pool was an absolute winner for all. The different outside spaces available was really pleasing, quiet areas, relaxing areas it had it all. We had great barbie too. Pool service was second to none. This Villa guarantees you a fabulous time. Many thanks to Steve and Kay
