“Amazing villa”
Reviewed 18 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

Last week we returned from a week's stay at Villa Kokkinos and I couldn't fault it. The villa was immaculate with the pool maintained every day. Mr George (the owner) and family were very welcoming and kind enough to provide us with food from their restaurant on the first evening and some mornings. Kostas, the holiday adviser, was very helpful with providing recommendations of where to eat and things to do. A highlight for us was visiting Baja Beach Club. The villa is a short walk from a few tavernas and a small supermarket, but a drive away from anything else. We used the taxi company recommended by Kostas every day who were excellent and a reasonable price. We would definitely return to Villa Kokkinos, thank you!

“First class accommodation, excellent services”

We have just returned from a lovely week at Villa Kokkinos. The property is as described in the advertisement and is comprehensively equipped and kept in immaculate condition. We have stayed in many properties and this is one of the best equipped we have ever holidayed in.
Our party of 8 included grandparents, parents, aunt and uncle and 2 children aged 3 and 1. There was plenty of room for us all with lots of seating areas and eating facilities inside and out. Located on a rise there are views of the surrounding area and spectacular sunsets over the sea.
Having children ranging in ages would be no problem here as the owner has gone out of his way to provide play areas including basketball hoop and football located in space away from the pool so they can play safely but in view of adults. Our little ones really enjoyed the small house, slide, swings and toys (all of a high standard) located under cover on rubber matting. Adults can sit in the shade and relax whilst keeping an eye on the children enjoying themselves. The pool was a little cold as it was May and the shallow children’s end was still a little deep for our youngsters but nothing that a cheap paddling pool would not solve. The children’s equipment cots, high chairs were all spotless and there was even 2 pushchairs which we really appreciated.
Our flight was delayed and we were very thankful for the lovely hot meal that had been left for us. The welcome pack was of a very high standard and included drinks, milk, butter, jams, ham, cheese wine, beer, orange juice, fresh fruit and salad etc etc. It really was excellent. The owner cleans the pool each morning and often left us fresh bread and local delicacies. The villa was cleaned during our stay and towels and bed linen were changed. Mr George, the owner and his daughter, who speaks English, were very hospitable and go out of their way to make sure the villa and its grounds and contents are kept to a very high standard. The booking agent was efficient and kept in touch with us although we did not need to contact them for anything as everything was as described.
The location is quiet but it is only a short walk to the beach, some local tavernas and shops. There are neighbours but we did not find this a problem. It is about a 10min drive from Rethymno, a lovely little town, buses do pass as the bottom of the road.
We would recommend visitors to eat at the owner’s restaurant which is centrally located in the town. We had a lovely meal there and it was very reasonably priced.
I would highly recommend Villa Kokkinos. Mr George and his daughter have gone to great lengths to provide excellent accommodation and services that make their property stand out.

“Fabulous villa, beautifully maintained with excellent views”

We booked this villa for 10 days via Etouri who manage the property on behalf of the owners. Firstly thanks to the staff at Etouri for their quick responses and excellent service with regards to our stay.
This villa is fantastic. It is very clean, spacious and has several balconies that offer fantastic views, especially of the sunset over Rethymno. There are 2 BBQ areas, which are great for larger groups.
In the main villa, the bedrooms are spacious and have good air con. There is plenty of wardrobe space in each too. The living room/kitchen area is huge, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you will need to cook.
The annex is the highlight of the villa. Again, this has a fully fitted kitchen and living space, as well as a huge bedroom that is tastefully decorated. The large windows that open up in the annex provide great views for who you wake up!
The owners did a fantastic job at looking after the villa throughout our stay. The gardens are especially well maintained and look fantastic. We thank the owners for providing a meal for us on our first night from their restaurant (that is also worth visiting!). We arrived late, and were really grateful for the food as well as a fully stocked fridge full of fruit, salami, cheese, breads etc. In addition, the Kokkinos family would often leave fresh bread and pastries from the bakery first thing in the morning. This is such a kind gesture and made us feel very welcome.
Overall, I would highly recommend this villa. We couldn't find any faults at all throughout our stay and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday.

The property was spot on and exactly as advertised. Our group was very impressed and really enjoyed to time at the villa. We could not find fault with it at all. In retrospect we should have rented a car as the shops/tavernas etc. within walking distance are limited.

We went three families and stayed comfortable in this beautiful villa. George and his family took so good care of us and even brought food from their familiy restaurant on arrival.
The house is fantastic and the garden and pool is perfect for families and group of friends.
I just have nothing bad to say about our stay, everything was just perfect and we are already thinking about going back there again!
