“A very good holiday”
My husband and I are just back from Venizelou apartment after spending a most enjoyable 2 week stay. The apartment is perfectly situated in the old town, making it an ideal base. The owner Alki, was an excellent host and very attentive. His parents lived below the apartment and they were friendly, welcoming and hospitable and often left us small plates of fruit, eggs, olive oil soap etc- a very kind gesture indeed. The apartment is spacious, and perhaps the best feature was the front balcony which faces the harbour and beach. It really was a delight to watch the world go by! An added bonus was the rear balcony which overlooks a local street in the old town, so I guess having the two balconies offers the best of both worlds. We ate out most days/nights as there is an abundance of choice regarding cafes, snack bars and quality restaurants. We only had breakfast and salads at the apartment, but this worked very well for us as it was too hot to cook anyway! We also made great use of the local transport and visited several places by bus, so we didn’t find the need to hire a car. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our break and we’ll probably revisit at some time in the future. Our thanks to the family for being exceptional hosts!
“A fantastic holiday in a fabulous location”
Great place - spectacular views (especially sunrise). Very friendly and helpful owners. Highly recommend it to everyone.
“Perfect Hosts - couldn't wish for a better holiday home”
Alki (owner) met us in the middle of the night in a lightning storm to guide as to our apartment. We were a little late arriving in our hire car and he was extremely helpful and pleased to see us. This set the tone for the perfect hospitality we received during our stay. We cannot recommend this holiday apartment enough. Everything was perfect and I cannot fault a single thing. The property is in an ideal location in Rethymno right in the middle of the seafront with beautiful private sun terraces to the front and rear. All amenities and facilities are first class and the place was much roomier than it looked in the photos. Best of all the host family were extrememly kind and friendly without being at-all intrusive during our stay... expertly judged. Our hosts were always ready to help (although we never had to ask) and so helpful in providing a little helpful starter information to guide us around the town and island. Highly recommended. A+++. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and would be happy to stay there again. Thankyou Alki and family for a wonderful platform for our holiday - it would not have been half the holiday we experienced without you.
“Spacious apartment in excellent location”
Great to be able to easily walk into the Old Town to find one of the lovely little restaurants or bars, or just relax on your own balcony and watch the world go by. Owner's family couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Owner's reply: Yes everything is at your door step and it was our pleasure having you stay with us.
“Excellent centrally sited apartment”
We flew into Heraklion and after hiring a car there drove to Rethymno. Alki was there to meet and greet us. In addition to showing us how everything worked he also gave very good advice on where to park - and not park - the car. The apartment was excellent and met our needs spot on. It was very central to both the old town in one direction and the main beach in the other. (There is also a smaller beach directly opposite). Alki was always readily available if we had any queries or wanted advice. He regularly stayed in the apartment below and his Mum and Dad also stayed over from time to time. They were very friendly and made us some delicious Greek food. We had a really enjoyable holiday.
Owner's reply: Yiasou! Thank you for your EXCELLENT review we are really happy you found us PERFECT!
“We loved it.”
Great place to stay. Really central but quiet too. Loved the view from the balcony, the fact that we could walk to an amazing selection of restaurants and shops and just pop across to the harbour for a quick swim. We hired a car locally and went sighseeing in the morning and to the beach on the south coast most afternoons. We were really well looked after and felt we got a tiny taste of Cretan life. Thank you.
Owner's reply: We are glad that the apartment was everything you expected. Thank you for choosing our Venidzelou apartment to spend your holiday...regards from sunny and happy Rethymno - Crete.
“Rethymnon is a beautiful place to stay!”
This was our first visit to Crete and the apartment in Rethymnon was the perfect place to stay. There is plenty to do within walking distance, lots of fantastic places to eat and the old town area is very interesting and attractive. There is an open top bus and road train to visit inland villages, monasteries and other beaches so this is a good way to see more of the island. There is so much to see and it is a very beautiful place. We didn't hire a car although might consider this for a future visit to explore the island independently. The Rethymnon beaches weren't too crowded, even in July. The harbour beach is right opposite the apartment and was a great place to swim at sunrise. There is a well organised beach with sun umbrellas and facilities just a short walk away. The owners of the apartment are charming and couldn't have made us feel more welcome, it was so much more homely than staying in a big hotel. The main street outside the apartment with restaurants and shops and is closed to traffic in the evenings, it had a lively feel but wasn't too hectic or noisy, everything was quiet by around midnight. We had a really fantastic time, a good balance of beach holiday with plenty other things to do. We would definitely go back - maybe when it isn't quite as hot!
Owner's reply: I am glad you had a fantastic time in our apartment but how could you not...sunrise swims sound amazing.BRAVO! You guys where wonderful guests please give my regards to your wonderful son, i loved the positive review he wrote in our guest book.
“perfect location, very helpful owner”
This was our first visit visit to Crete and it will not be our last, we shall return to the apartment Venizelou without doubt. From the first contact this was a good experience the owner was very quick to respond and was most helpful, The apartment although not luxury was spacious and well equiped the lack of a full cooker was not a problem I cookied a full English breakfsat every morning, the best bit was to then eat it on the large terrace overlooking the beautiful blue sea .Everything is close by the people really friendly very safe I can highly recommend this for a holiday. The two flights of stairs may be a problem for some less agile but for most no problem.
Owner's reply: Thank you for highly recommending our place next time try our full Cretan breakfast, you will love it too. You where wonderful guests...now friends, Efxaristo (Thank you)!
Loved our first visit to a Greek island. Such a warm welcome from the owner. Loved Rethymnon and the excellent apartment is 5 minutes walk from everywhere, main beach, old town, and the shops the locals use. No need for car hire, plenty of excursions and buses. Got home and our TV looks really small!
Owner's reply: Happy to see your STAY was enjoyed to the full! It was our pleasure having you and we are looking forward to your next visit. From Sunny Rethymno - Venizelou with love.
“Great location, but not fully air-conditioned”
Good apartment at the heart of the Old Town of Rethymno at the second (last) floor of the authentic house. Close to the beach, shops and sign-seen. Spread apartment with large balcony. Friendly owners. The main problem - air-condition only at bedroom, so temperature at kitchen and dining room are high.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your feedback, we are really glad you loved your stay in our apartment. We have now installed an additional air-conditioner in the kitchen and lounge area. Our beautiful rental (Venizelou) apartment in Rethymno, is now FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED.
