“We, as a couple and our four grownup children rented both of the adjoining properties, to celebrate some family birthdays. We had a really wonderful week in Kostoulas house. We were welcomed by Kostoula and her daughter, even though it was very late after flight delays. The house was very clean, well equipped and the swimming pool and outside spaces are lovely. The house was cleaned during our stay and we had fresh bed linen. It is quite open plan, as explained in the details. It wasn’t a problem as the sleeping areas are on different levels and it means the air con gets all around. The small village is very pretty and we tried two of the tavernas, both were very good. It is possible to walk down to the beach and it is a lovely walk but probably best done early in the morning before it gets too hot. We do recommend hiring a car to explore this wonderful unspoilt part of Crete, but if you didn’t want to, the taxi services are very good. Kostoula was an excellent host and got back to us very promptly when we had a couple of questions during our stay.”
We had a lovely apartment, spacious and cool (air con is great!), huge double room above living (and kids’ sleeping) space. Quiet village, not at all ‘touristy’, and a really peaceful place to stay. We had a terrace outside the bedroom, great spot to sit in the evening and watch the sun set over Souda bay. Ground floor terrace with patio furniture, lovely spot to eat (although apartment cooking facilities are very limited – don’t stay here if you’re the sort who loves to cook on holiday!). Clean, sheets and towels were changed about every 3 days, washing machine in communal office area.
Friendly owner who responded very quickly to text messages about minor issues. Pool was larger than we expected, very clean and well maintained with plenty of loungers and umbrellas. Lovely setting, well maintained and lots of flowers around so very pretty. Excellent, good value family-run taverna right next door – some quiet music in the evening, but won’t disturb (except the night we were there and they had a very noisy wedding reception until the small hours!!).
Our boys (10 and 13) loved it, especially the pool. Easily reached from Crete’s (one!) main road and a very easy drive to many local attractions (beaches, ancient sites, lovely city of Chania, lake Kournas – fantastic pedalos and kayaks, excellent taverna, glass making in Kokkino Xoria, lovely local villages – small folk museum in Gavalochori is worth a look). Our first time on Crete, but will definitely go back to this place!
Very nice set of rental quiet and very well maintained Did appreciated the pool ideal location for a good discovery of the region warm welcome …. not to mention the charming tavern throw Excellent stay.
What Lina loved about your listing:
House Dream 1 is a beautiful old building in the nice little village of Douliana. We have been here for almost two weeks and liked almost everything about the house and the village. The house is spacious and clean. The terasse and the pool are beautiful and you can find a space with shade or sun all day long. The house was cleaned every three days. Towels and sheets have been changeld also.
We have been here with our little daughter and Koustoula organized a cot and a chair for the baby, wich was great! The little Cafenion is extremely charming and the taverna at the end of the town is really great, so we spent a lot of days just staying in Douliana.
