I slutet av strandpromenaden från gamla staden i Rethymnon hittar du denna välskötta och välutrustade villa. Du väljer om du vill bada i den lilla poolen på tomten eller i havet ett stenkast bort. Vi valde att ligga vid poolen för att sedan på en minut vara nere i havet för ett svalkande dopp. Beskrivningen på Tripadvisor stämmer med verkligheten förutom den bortretuscherade lilla bilparkeringen mellan tomten och stranden. Men den upplevdes inte som störande i verkligheten. Vi använde fem av de sex rummen, generöst med garderober och badrum. Rummet i källaren är inte så trevligt, så fundera en extra gång om ni behöver ha sex rum.

Perfect location right on the sea front and has the 'envy factor' for people walking passed. The positives, met the owners wife on arrival who is very kind and helpful. The villa is modern and spacious so you don't feel on top of one another, it's immaculately clean and has a well equipped kitchen. The lounge area is comfortable and not over fussy. Nice surprise to find the 'library' of paperbacks in the sideboard. Aircon in all the bedrooms, the beds are firm but this was not a problem for us. Ask for extra pillows as only one on each of the beds. Plenty of electrical sockets throughout the villa. It was also a bonus that we did not have to buy basics such as salt/pepper, washing up liquid and toilet rolls as these were were provided. The pool area is lovely with a pleasant terrace overlooking the sea, immaculate garden and plenty of sunbeds.There are some small improvements I would suggest that for us would have made Villa Irida perfect, namely: a bracket in the upstairs bathroom to enable the shower head to be used as a proper shower not just hand held, extra sofas outside as soft seating only available for six people; more practical if the grass in front of the terrace was paved over for going in/out of the pool. Other points I would like to raise are:one description stated there was a hair dryer and beach towels provided but we couldn't find them (luckily we had brought our own). Unable to set up the TV and other electronic equipment properly as no instructions (a set in English would be useful). Also the folder containing local information disappeared after the cleaners left on the first day, fortunately we have been to Rethymnon before so were familiar with the area and what's available so didn't ask where it had gone. Some minor points raised that I do not wish to detract from what was, for us, a fabulous holiday. Thank you.

We have just returned from the a great week staying at Villa Irida! We travelled as a group of 9 for a family members birthday and the villa and location ticked every box.
The owner met us there on arrival and talked though a few things such as the solar heated hot water and when she would be there to change bedding/towels.
We were firstly a little worried to book this due to the just one review but certainly glad we did, so I'm writing this to put anyone else's minds at rest.
The place was very clean and tidy, all bedrooms had built-in wardrobes and outside were plenty of sunbeds and a very clean pool.
The location, situated literally on the beach, was great. It was about a 25/30min walk, along the beachfront, to the town centre (or a 5euro taxi ride) where there were loads of fab restaurants and it was great exploring the old Rethymono town. Saying that there were also many restaurants and shops locally to the villa.
We all in all had a great week and would definitely return to both Villa Irida and Crete!

Het huis ligt op een mooie plek met een geweldig uitzicht. Toen we er aankwamen was de schonmaakploeg nog bezig. Nog nooit zo'n schoon huis meegemaakt (zelfs thuis niet). Ze kwamen na 3 dagen opnieuw schoonmaken. Opnieuw superschoon. Leuk zwembad en ook superschoon. Bedden prima, badkamers idem. Heerlijk huis en heerlijke vakantie.

Three families stayed at this villa providing us with great facilities, space and views of the beach. The villa has easy access to the beach and a taxi rank which takes you into the old part of Rethymno. The villa is surrounded by mini markets, with a larger supermarket less than a 5-minute walk. Round the corner from the villa is a number of restaurants, (I personally would recommend the 1+1 restaurant). The design of the villa provides plenty of room and space for such a large number of people. The owner very friendly and the cleaning services during our stay was fantastic. I would recommend this villa for large families with either younger children, or teenagers.

Been here before. Location. Cleanliness. Owners all excellent. The following would make it more enjoyable...... Pool Towels. Only 4 plastic cups and 2 plastic plates in a villa for 12 to take around the pool so had to use glass which if broken could be nasty for children. No oven tray. No microwave bowls. No ovenglooves. Only 1 pan!!!! 4,draws completely empty and very very little to cook with. These could be rectified at a small cost but would make the villa so much better. There were just 5 of us there so we managed but if there were 10/12 it would be hopeless.... The villa itself is superb and we will return as it ticks so many boxes for us ... If the above issues were sorted it would be so much nicer for its guests.

The house was just lovely. The owner was also very nice. The only thing that could have been better is the housekeeping. It would have been nice to have the house cleaned more often than once a week. Other than that we were very happy with our stay. Would love to come back one day. Highly recommended

we were a family of 6, including a 4 year old. The villa and loacation matched the description exactly. The location is excellent right at the end of the beach road, with only the road between the villa, beach and sea. An easy trip into the old town or onto the main road, but still quiet. The villa itself was very comfortable, the beds were excellent. We'd highly recommend this villa.
