I can’t say enough about this beautiful house and Litsa’s hospitality. The price is extremely reasonable for what you get. The description and photos on HomeAway.com are accurate—but it’s even better in real life.
We especially wanted to relax outdoors, and were not disappointed. The outdoor patios are comfortable and gorgeous for eating, reading, visiting, yoga, etc. The landscaping is well planned and beautiful, providing lovely nature and privacy.
This house is in a rural residential area, and a car is required. We loved it because it’s in the middle of the island, making our adventures all over Crete convenient. We loved the quaint setting, including a pasture across the street with a herd of sheep that wore bells around their necks, and herding dogs that moved the sheep to different areas.
We stayed for 12 days, and every single day was fabulous. This home is large and artfully furnished, decorated and arranged. Every comfort and need is available (kitchen dishes, utensils, modern appliances, good linens, lovely bathrooms, etc.).
The house is ideal for 4 people, but can accommodate more. There are actually 2 bedrooms plus a study that can sleep one or two people, but is open to the living room. The living room couch can also be used for sleeping.
We would have appreciated the bathroom showers to have an overhead hook for a stand-up shower, as we have in America, but this is not a complaint—most showers in Greece are hand-held for water conservation.
We had a stray cat that slept on the lovely white patio cushions leaving dirty paw prints, which we felt bad about it; but there are cats all over Greece that are adopted by all, and that is a wonderful thing in my opinion.
While the house itself is fabulous, the best of all is its owner Litsa. She is truly exemplary! She welcomed us with wonderful fresh vegetables from the garden, a delicious homemade meal, preserves, breads, and every comfort we might need. She gave us valuable tips on what to see and do—things we would not know otherwise—and every piece of advice we took was a wonderful experience.
Litsa is a dear, hard working, truly genuine, wonderful person. I can’t imagine a better experience, and we are all very thankful and feel honored to know her.
