Valanti and his parents were waiting in the house for us to arrive. We arrived in darkness in a downpour, but after a quick phone call, Nick, Valanti's father, came out to meet us and guide us to the house. Valanti and his mother made the others feel at home, while Nick took me to park our hire car. (There is free parking along the sea wall by the Citadel)
The house was exceptionally well equipped, and cupboards and fridge were stocked with condiments, bottled water, oranges and Raki.
A well stocked small supermarket was close by, and we often succumbed to temptation at Hari's Creperie - you could almost read the menu from the balcony. And down below a wonderful bakers shop provided breakfast pastries.
Old Town Rethimnon is lovely for exploring - no cars, the odd moped, lots of quirky shops, a vast choice of cafe's & restaurants, and lots of cats to feed.
Despite the late October rain we found plenty to see and do, and would love to return.
Valanti and his parents are perfect hosts. They made us very welcome on arrival and were very informative, as we had hired a car we were met and shown free parking a short distance from the house. The house is lovely and spotlessly presented with everything that you need, positioned perfectly in the centre of town. Rethymnon town is a wonderful place to stay which offers a wide choice of excellent restaurants, bars and shops and is central to seeing other parts of the island. I can highly recommend a stay in this fabulous townhouse which provided us with the perfect holiday.
Valanti and his parents are very friendly and always willing to help, they even arrange to us baby bed :) The House is beautiful and amazingly clean! But the best is its localization and great balcony where we had our dinner with the view to the old town! We had great time there :)
This was an incredible location and an absolutely fabulous house. Coordinate with Valanti ahead of time as to where to drop off the bags if you have a car and then he will graciously show you where to find free parking. Both balconies were incredible and you step out of the door straight into the shopping district of the city. There is a great crepe and pizza restaurant (rated highly by travel sites) across from the door. We made an incredible dinner in the kitchen of the flat one night. Highly recommend. Great central location for day trips too. We will be back.
Valanti and his parents are great hosts! They are so friendly and helpful. The apartment is located in the beautiful old town of Rhetymno with a lot of restaurants and shops around. The spacious apartment is furnished lovingly and offers everything you need. We felt very comfortable and would definitely come back.
This is a great place to stay, the photos really don't do it justice. The house is spacious and very clean, with everything you need. The location is perfect, and Valanti's parents were very welcoming and helpful, going out of their way to help us find somewhere to park. We'd happily stay there again.

A perfect apartment in the old town of Rethymnon. The apartment had everything you needed, even guidebook sof Crete. A spacious roof veranda with table and chairs was the perfect setting for an evening meal. You are right in the center of the old town, we were concerned about noise but with the living room window closed it did not disturb us at all. Very well equipped kitchen with everything you needed. The bedrooms were air conditioned, with shutters to keep out the light. The living space was much more spacious than shown in the photos. The apartment was perfect - and then there is the added benefit of Nick and Anna. Such a helpful interesting couple - Nick came on his bicycle when we are lost to lead us to free parking near the apartment. Lovely people, knowledgeable and very happy to help or answer questions. Our visit could not have been better.
We just came back from our trip to Crete. Choosing Valanti's apartment was a perfect decision. Localization was great - right in the middle of the old town, bakery just next door, big supermarket just 200 meters away, countless restaurants bars and cafes just everywere around.
Nick and Anna were perfect hosts. They met us just after our arrival in Rethymnon, show us the house nad were extremally frindly and informative.
The house has huge kitchen, very spacious leaving room and two bed rooms. House equipment was perfect - plenty of kitchen ware - everything you can possible need and much more. We found few kilos of oranges for juice in the fridge, 12 liters of drinking water, small carafe of local raki, coffe, sugar, herbs - just everything needed.
It was probably one of the best price/qulaity ratio we ever had. We can just highly recomend this place. Just a small remark - if you are planning a beach holidays it is good 15 minute walk. It was not our plan so we had no issues with this.
We were extremely happy with our experience with Valenti's property. Nick & Anna were our hosts meeting us at the apartment & taking us through everything. You could not ask to meet 2 more genuinely hospitable and gracious people.
The apartment itself is actually better than the photos indicate. Incredibly spacious, squeaky clean and superb location - literally in the heart of the old town and stones throw to the must see Venetian fortress.
This was perfect for our family - 2 adults, 2 teenagers and an infant - teenagers upstairs basically self contained and we were downstairs!
Can't recommend this property and the owners highly enough!
I met Val while travelling in Greece and he has since visited me in Vancouver, BC. He's a great guest, always polite. I recommend him for sure!
