Mylo Villa (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 8).
A clean , spacious, well equipped villa with a private pool . Cleaned and sheets changed twice a week. Lovely pastries baked by our friendly cleaner. Walking distance to village shops and an excellent taverna . Views of the sea from a mountain setting. Beds are quite firm! Air conditioning in upstairs bedrooms. Great to have a garage for safe off road parking. A good base to explore Chania and Rethymno regions.
The property and it's suppport crew (Roula and Leonardis) are very very nice. It was clean and comfortable, with adequate kitchen utensils to allow for self-catering. We were three friends staying a week in Crete, and were attracted to this property because it sounded like it was in an area that would be more vibrant than it really was. We would recommend this property for families who want to spend most of their time in the villa, at the pool, as a vehicle is needed to get anywhere (beaches, sights, even to the nearest bus stop!). The lack of street lighting on the island made night driving quite nerve-wracking, thus limiting any night life to the village of Kefalas. When we arrived we had a bit of trouble locating the keys (they were not where we were told they would be). Fortunately, the kind gentleman next door helped us find Roula to let us in. We also didn't have hot water for the first 24 hours, and no way of calling the numbers provided on the info card provided, as there isn't a land line phone in the villa. Oreo Travel was very helpful in helping us out over email though, and the water issue was resolved. Overall, we enjoyed our time at the villa, but would recommend it more for folks who want a quiet time in a small village.
It was very pleasent and with a beautiful pool and a lot a places to sit. I would recommend this to other people. Thanks and best regards
Beautiful villa, very well equiped, good situated, good service. Crete is beautiful with excellent beaches and places to visit. I may recommend it a lot!!!!
This villa is a true gem and we had a fabulous holiday in Kefalas and Chania. Description very accurate and in fact the villa also has a private underground garage, ideal for keeping our hire car safe and also cool. Excellent communication and driving directions from the airport and arrangements to collect keys, we were also given a guided tour when we arrived. Kefalas has two mini markets in walking distance and tavernas and bars too, lovely picturesque village and friendly locals and service everywhere, nothing was ever too much trouble and we felt very welcome from day one. The villa itself is just beautiful with everything you could possibly need from the outdoor BBQ, sun loungers and parasols, kitchen utensils to wifi. It was peaceful and in a tranquil setting and we loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea watching the world go by and the sun rise/set. The villa was cleaned and fresh linen and towels provided mid week too. We enjoyed several days out to nearby Lake Kournas, Rethymno and Chania, and loved wandering around the old towns and harbours and Lake Kournas was so beautiful. It was lovely driving through the hidden villages of Crete instead of taking the National Road at times, and experiencing the real Cretan lifestyle. And it was also lovely returning to Mylo Villa and enjoying the privacy and tranquility of your own villa and particularly the fabulous pool. Kefalas felt like home for a week. We would highly recommend this property, it truly is a hidden gem, and in fact hope to return later this year and take our parents. And we want to say a special thank you to the owner and his lovely family too who could not do enough to make you feel welcome. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful villa, and we hope to be back soon :) Julie and Andy, Wirral, UK
We were 7 (family + friends) and spent an excellent 9 days stay in this very nice house. Very comfortable, clean and completly equipped. We were greeted warmly by Leonidas The house is very nice.The two terraces allowed us to always have a corner in the shade or in the sun... April was a good season to stay in this region/house. We had a beautiful sunshine during the 10 days in Crete.
