This place is even better than the photos. It's spacious, clean, well equipped with a lovely pool. The views are incredible. It's not far to the sea, shops, restaurants and supermarkets. I would recommend following the signs to Thavma taverna - on top of a nearby mountain with beautiful views of sea and mountain, friendly service and great food.
Our stay at villa Alkistis was perfect in every respect. First of all, the owners, Argiro and Nikos, were excessively warm and welcoming.
Even better than the already website, wonderful house with astonishing architecture and facilities and the pool was fantastic, great views, great location, away from the touristy areas, but within striking distance of Rethymnon for all holiday needs.
The villa has everything that can be needed during holiday, dishwasher, washing machine (that was very useful when travelling with children), etc.
The villa was sparkling clean when we arrived and after 3 days it was cleaned once again.
We can highly recommend this property for everybody!
Thanks Argiro and Nikos for our great vacation on Rethymnon!!!

We know Adele very well as we have family close by. We decided to rent the villa now we are a family of four. Lovely quiet location. It's private and on quite a hill so a car is an absolute necessity. 5 mins from shops and 10 mins from the main tourist strip and beach. Fantastic views too! The villa is very spacious. More so than the pictures show I think. Kitchen is large, bedrooms too. All the basic amenities available in the villa for your holiday.
A few things I would have liked to be available/change. There was no mop so we couldn't clean the floor. With two small kids crawling a few days into the holiday the floor was quite dirty and I would have liked to be able to clean up a bit. The shower room wasn't as clean as I would have liked. The shower was very small and the tray not particularly clean. Kitchen overall was clean. The master bedroom mattress was way to hard to sleep on. Even my not so fussy husband found it difficult to sleep on.
The pool outside is lovely but a bit hazardous for small children. The pool is built up against the villa so one full length of the pool has a 1.5 m ledge. So walking along the pool can give a mother a heart attack. The garden is lovely. Flowers in full bloom. Plenty of sun loungers.
I think we would love to come back here. I hope the owners appreciate our feedback. We enjoyed our holiday but we wanted to point a few bits out.
Fantastic place. Extremely clean and comfortable. Two great sun terraces and a nice little pool. We really appreciated the view over quiet villages and olive groves towards the sea. The villa is very private though there are surrounding houses. Car is a must for shopping/eating out.
Argiro and Nikos are incredibly kind and welcoming. Highly recommended.
