Overall a good experience.
The house and yard was gorgeous. Also, that the owners were very sensitive about whether we were happy with the house. If we had any questions they were responsive. We had a great time.
Loved it all!
The location is not very pretty. The house sat up on a hill, so it was an oasis, but the seaside area below is way overdeveloped, and full of low budget groups who are really there for the all night partying and drinking. It was not somewhere we wanted to walk around with children

The house was gorgeous so well appointed. The nice, gracious owner spoke English. The Pool was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would have been gorgeous in May, June and September. Don't go in August.
We were there in August - not a good time to go. It was very hot, and the beach was jammed with German tourists. There is a hotel above the villa, and there was a constant stream of German tour buses, people and motorcycles. Noisy. Any other time, except for high season would be great. Crete in August is filled with tourists.
The villa is located high up on a hill. It is a 15 minute walk down to the beach, but it is a hefty walk back up the steep hill.
