“Villa Annaniko is Extraordinary”
Reviewed 31 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We're New Yorkers with a deeply ingrained appetite for the deluxe but an equal affection for adventure, beauty, and chill. Villa Annaniko fits all bills. It's a spectacular piece of architecture - gracious, modern and spare. It's views are breathtaking - a long sweep of hillside and blue sea in one direction; the stunning White Mountains in another. The property is gracious and lovely, inside and out. The interiors speak to a minimalist’s taste but are without question, elegant. The landscaping - lovingly cultivated but with a respectful nod to nature's whims - is simply inspired. Near enough to a host of stunning beaches but perched above the sea, there is much to do. Watch the skies, walk through ridiculously abundant lemon, orange, and olive groves, and laze around the pristine pools. Or better yet, do all that AND explore Western Crete's richness. If this is where you're headed, you already know how special this part of Greece is. Gorges, hikes, Minoan archeology, and ridiculously good food. But at Annaniko, you get a whole other layer of perfect. The property's host, manager, caretaker, gardener, and all around saint, Stelios Malekakis, is a true find. A font of information, a gentle presence (when and if you want him), and an extraordinary masseuse. A knowledgeable guide who elevates Villa Annaniko from wonderful to sublime. I can't recommend this paradise highly enough.

“Holiday Villa certainly worth re-visiting”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were 8 in our party and decided to go further south this year for our 'week in the sun'; last year being in Corfu

AnnaNiko was carefully chosen after extensive research, and we were not disappointed

- The accommodation for 6 adults and 2 children was perfect
- The internal layout and modern design ideal for us
- The location just breath-taking, easy to reach and conveniently close to local restaurants and beaches
- And the pools - two of them - just stunning

Making full use of all the Villa's facilities - it's gardens, wider grounds and all seating areas - we wouldn't hesitate to return. It poses a hard act to better

“Outstanding in every possible way”

person found this review helpful

Our recent stay at Villa Annaniko was amazing. The house, pool, and surrounding gardens are immaculate. Great style and privacy. The views (particularly at sunset) are stunning. Moreover, the property is managed extremely well. The property manager, Stelios, was so helpful with every single request or question we had during our visit. He arrived with fresh vegetables from the garden virtually everyday without any need to ask. It felt like we were staying with our Greek relatives. We've rented villas in Positano, Costa del Sol, Sicily, St Maarten, Bali, and many other places and Villa AnnaNiko was our favorite. You will not be disappointed.

“spectacular”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We recently stayed at villa AnnaNiko in May- two families, nine people in all. We had a fantastic time! The villa is beautiful, very private with spectacular views, a wonderful pool area, and very spacious inside. Stelios was so helpful and had the villa stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, and tasty feta for us after a long day of travel to get there. We enjoyed out time there immensely- so relaxing and picturesque!
