Our overall experience was terrific. The "key holder" was very easy to reach and communicate with regarding details of our arrival. The house was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for us all.
The pool being so close to the house was nice and the view was beautiful.
One minor thing was that the driveway was steep and had a drain that scraped the bottom of the car badly, so we ended up parking on the road outside.
We enjoyed the proximity to Rethymnon and being located in the center of the northern coast.
