How lovely Villa Calista!


By Victoria S. on 16-Oct-2019

Fabulous outdoor space, beautiful gardens with sea and mountain views.
Home from home villa! Nothing this little gem doesn't have so there's no need to stock up with anything...except your own food and wine! Welcome basket was great.
Candles galore making the use of the outside space at night so pretty...
I would recommend a car due to the incline and uneven road to the villa.
Jackie the villa manager and her husband the pool cleaner were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you.
Lovely holiday had by all!!!
Ohh and we do miss the little kittens...Zena and Hercules ���

A stunning home, perfect for a couple or small family seeking a luxurious get-away


By Andrew E. on 20-Aug-2019

We found the property to be excellently presented and very clean. The facilities are exceptional, both in the villa and around the garden. Great attention to detail is paid to everything, from the well equipped kitchen, to a comfortable lounge, the outdoor areas and the bedrooms. The pool is modest in size, perfect for a dip to cool off. The rest of the gardens are stunningly presented and abound with beautiful flowers. There is a fabulous little BBQ and space to dry towels and washing. The bedrooms are comfortable, with loads of hanging space.

The screen for the shower in the bath leaked a bit (probably needs replacing - a simple enough job), but the rest of the facilities were faultless, including the highly efficient aircon.

Overall, we enjoyed a fabulous 9 night stay at this wonderful property and would highly recommend it to anyone. Nancy and Bob really went the extra mile, along with the property manager Jackie to make our stay a comfortable and memorable experience. Thank you to all.

We had a fantastic stay and i had stayed in numerous Villas and this is by far the best.


By Kevin S. on 26-Jul-2019

We were after a quiet relaxing holiday and this is exactly what we had and more. The facilities far exceeded what you would normally expect in a Villa which made us feel very well looked after and catered for. The management of the property during our stay was excellent. We would definitely book to stay again in the future as the location was magnificent, Alp like scenery to the South and fantastic sea views to the North. It’s perfectly positioned for getting to all the main attractions and we certainly made use of them during our stay. Thank you so much for a lovely holiday and you have an amazing Villa.

Holiday Paradise


By Tracy C. on 27-Aug-2018

Villa Calista is a beautiful vacation rental!! From the moment you reach the beautifully manicured property and catch a glimpse of the scenic harbour from the pool deck, you know you have made a great choice. The owners spend their winters at the villa, so there is nothing that you need that isn't provided- a BBQ with full propane tank, utensils, plates, useful kitchen appliances and even salt and pepper! Upon arrival, we easily picked up our keys on site. The owners have arranged for all guests to receive a welcome basket, containing olive oil from their own olive trees and everything you need to get you through the first day/night. They also included a beach bag which came in very handy! The rooms each had towels laid out, and a pool towel for our use. There is satellite TV, two spacious rooms, and a good sized bathroom. The bedrooms and full bath are upstairs and they each step out onto the comfortable balcony- a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee (which is also included in the welcome basket!) and enjoy the view of the military and cruise ships coming in and out of the harbour. The location of the villa is very central, allowing for easy exploring of Chania (1/2 hour) and Heraklion (45 mins), or there is a perfectly lovely beach at the bottom of the hill in Almyrida. The owners, Bob and Nancy, have also placed a book of all the beaches and tavernas to visit to make decisions easy. We would highly recommend a visit to Margarite for pottery, a boatride from Kissimos to Balos beach, and the old town in Chania. The best part of the trip was arriving home after a long day of exploring and sitting out on the patio with a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the nearby mountain- complete relaxation!! We have already decided to come back to Villa Calista on a regular basis. Thanks Bob and Nancy for sharing your villa with us. It was an amazing vacation!

Stay at Villa Calista


By Andrew C. on 06-Aug-2018

We had a really great holiday at the villa. Right from the start with the fantastic directions from the airport (better than our Sat Nav!) there has clearly been a lot of thought that has gone into making a stay here relaxing. All the small bits and pieces that you may need are there. The property and pool were clean and well maintained and the area beyond the pool into the olive grove is a real plus. We really liked the outdoor covered area where we could relax in the shade. The view's from the property are fantastic. The local village has some really good restaurants, plenty of activities on the beach and is very clean. The snorkelling from the side of the beach was excellent. A great place to go.

Amazing and beautiful home away from home.


By Kim C. on 02-Aug-2018

This is the first time we had booked a holiday villa independently, and I have to say the whole thing was seamless from start to finish.
We took a lot of care in choosing and were heavily influenced by the reviews from previous holiday makers. It turned out to be a very good choice.
As soon as we had booked we were contacted by the owners who are clearly passionate about Crete and their beautiful villa, and also about ensuring that we had a great time. They were extremely helpful and informative and responded very quickly to emails. Having signed up to the Villa Calista facebook page, by the time we arrived we felt as if we already knew both the villa and the area well.
I have to say that the villa and its grounds are incredible. The villa is so comfortable and cosy, and well equipped, and the grounds are so beautifully tended providing sunny and shaded areas throughout the day. The pool is fabulous, and the covered Alvi is perfect for sitting in the shade while looking out over the pool at the amazing views.
The thing that really strikes you about Villa Calista is how well maintained it is, how clean it is, and how every detail has been thought through so carefully.
This is Bob and Nancy's home during the winter, and the place has all the signs of being loved and having everything you could possibly need, whilst at the same time not making you feel as if you are intruding on someone elses space.
Its the details which you almost take for granted that make the place special, like the endless storm lanterns and copious supply of candles for the Alvi which creates a beautiful atmosphere in the evening; the hammock in the orchard; the beautiful cushions that decorate all the seating areas; the great range of kitchen equipment; and the thoughtful goodies basket that is there when you arrive.
The villa is in a lovely part of Crete, and while we were much lazier than we usually are on holiday (due to the intense heat, and the fact that the villa itself makes it easy for you to lounge about and be lazy), there is plenty to do and see within a short drive; and then there is that pool to jump into when you get back!
If you like traditional greek food then this is the place for you. There are traditional tavernas at every turn, and they far out number the touristy haunts.
We have no negative comments to make. We would recommend Villa Calista. I have no doubt that we will be back to this home away from home in the sun.
