The property is located in the center of the old town and almost everything what is needed (restaurants, market, shops, etc.) is 5 min by foot. Nevertheless, it is located in a calm street without noise in the evening and is convenient for rest after long day at beach. City beach of Rethymno is 12 min by foot.
Cleaning is done every 4th/5th day. Being at the seaside, cleaning is desires to be done more often.
Villa was stunning. Full of character and charm. Perfect sized swimming pool that's bathed in natural light. Brilliant location too as it's just a few footsteps from everything you could want to reach in the old town.
Nothing - the villa exceeded our expectations in every way.

Everything was good
We stayed in the ground floor appartment, it has all you could want with a touch of luxury and bags of character. The beds are comfortable, the pool is great and the air con is amazing.
The basics is what let’s this place down, the shower in the cave room leaks into the middle of the bedroom. The electrics continually tripped out and there is a constant puddle on the entrance to the main gate. Small but frustrating issues.
The villa was simply stunning and decorated with respect for the authenticity of the historical building. Perfect location to explore the city, close to parkings and grocery stores. Every morning we picked up freshly baked pastries from the bakery around the corner, and ate them at the terrace of the coffee bar close to it. Warm and welcoming hosts made sure all our questions were answered, and they made a reservation for us in the most beautiful restaurant.
The renovation of the building was being finalized while we were staying in the villa on the ground floor, and we were the first guests ever to stay there after the building had been redesigned from hotel to apartments. As with every renovation, there are small hiccups that happen (power cuts, leakages, oven and washing machine not yet connected) and we were the 'guinea pigs' to report these to the managers. We would've preferred these to have been solved already before we arrived, as they made our stay less restful than it could have been. That being said, management and owners were extremely helpful in immediately solving any issues.
