What makes Okeanides Rethymnon villas different from all the others?
1. We are the only Vacation Rental property, ideal for villa holidays in crete, that provides our Guests with a very discrete Villa Manager who lives in the area in a separate house, to help you with your stay and be there for you for whatever you need at no extra charge. The Villa manager can also bring your groceries to the Villa without any extra charges (other than the shopping bill), or guide you in places during your stay, help you organize your trips, give you tips for the island you will otherwise would not find anywhere else. For us, throwing you the keys and leaving you without a helping hand is out of the question, so you get more than a holiday villa.Crete is also well known for its hospitality, and this could not be missing from our unique blend.
2. We offer more than any of the other villas on Crete. Surely the only out of all the villas in Rethymnon that offers you a full breakfast buffet with no extra charge - our clients were so happy so far that we decided to extend breakfast for the full season, beyond August, and up to the end of September and mid October. We found out that breakfast while renting a Villa solves a big issue our guests had: having to wake up early, start preparing morning meals for everyone, going out shopping for breakfast, or eat it out; doesn't sound like a relaxing holiday, does it? Problem solved. Off you go for your holidays. Crete here we come!
And we run Okeanides Villas with a few important goals in our minds.
We want our visitors to refresh themselves for a full year escaping daily routine. Change it to letting their senses free to enjoy spectacular sunrises and majestic sunsets in beautiful natural surroundings having their own villa in Crete with pool and full amenities.
We want our visitors assured that someone else is taking care of them and their loved ones for a while. We help them relax and enjoy a week or two off, with a bit of privacy. Maybe resting on a summer bed all morning and afternoon next to their private Jacuzzi swimming pool, reading books. Many villas in Crete with pool have jacuzzi, but few have the sea views we offer! Or take it easy, sipping coffee from their balcony starring at the seafront while our rich inclusive breakfast buffet is being prepared.
Others spend their days playfully snorkeling or fishing at the small beach-an easy 10-15 minute walk- diving in the warm crystal sea; there are other beaches in the area at driving distance, much larger and much better for you to choose from and do your swimming and tanning. You can also enjoy real Mediterranean food made by a local family on a small tavern next to the sea just nearby.
For the really active people we arrange sea sports and sea boat trips locally. Not to mention arranging excursions, visits, safaris and tours through many established offices in Crete.
For those wishing to keep up with their office, we fire up our Wireless Internet and keep their laptops connected and working happily at speeds reaching 10MBps, at no extra cost.
For anyone wishing to stay in, we have everything in place. From home entertainment, to partying and barbequing, home cooking, keeping fit; it is simply a matter of choice. You get to stay on a fully equipped Rethymnon villa where nothing is missing.
People who stay at Okeanides Villas are having memorable, relaxing holidays, because we make sure that they do. You get an excellent Rethymno villa and we have many happy renters to back us up for saying that.

My Husband and I stayed at this wonderful villa with both sets of our parents and my sister. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The owner was very helpful and accommodating through our email exchanges. The staff (the housekeeper and property manager) were very friendly and also very helpful. They made us breakfast every morning and cooked us supper one evening...so tasty!
The setting of this villa is in the countryside up the side of a mountain, 10 minutes away from a quaint little town called Bali. Definitely need to rent a car to access this location and that is what we did. Driving on Crete was a little nerve racking at first, but no problem once we got the hang of it. Bali has a cute little beach nestled between 2 large hills with a couple of restaurants. The one we ate at was delicious and very affordable. The owner served us fresh watermelon and a shot of liquor for desert. We went back a second time because it was so good.
There is also a restaurant across the highway from the villa and there is a small beach just below it. The food was also amazing here and again very affordable. The owners did not speak English, but enough to help us order and have a great experience. Again, we were served a shot of alcohol and a very tasty Greek Yogourt dessert with honey and preserves...this was my favourite!
The view from the villa is breathtaking and the pool was greatly appreciated! The days on Crete were very hot, but there was usually a breeze and the evenings cooled off to be quite nice. From this location, we drove to visit Heraklion, Rhethymno, Chania, Georgioupolis, and Elafonisi. The drive to Elafonisi was the longest (about 4 hours) and the most nerve racking because you are driving along the side of a cliff for the last 30 minutes, but it was one of my favourite experiences on Crete. Georgioupolis had a nice beach.
Crete was my favourite place that we visited in Greece (we also went to Santorini, Paros, Antiparos, and athens). Hope to return one day!

I booked in Okeanides for ten days in October and we arrived with my wife and three children; we were late for our holiday but we were lucky with our choice, as the house was more than what we expected, and the price very reasonable. The only problem we found was that the Internet connection was unreliable, and for a few days we were left without E-mail. But the problem was fixed-God knows how they manage to provide Web access at this reagion - and we were back on track.

Our holiday last year was in Crete at a place near Rethymon called Bali. The house we stayed was very nice, clean and the person that ran the helpdesk, Giannis, polite and always there when we needed something. The good things about the place was the accommodation, and the location. The sea was just across the road with umbrellas and everything and the kids had the time of their life. There was a small family taverna where we ate every afternoon, and we were doing barbeque almost every night. We never used the TV and the stereo as we had plenty of things to do all day. The negative was that we did not have Internet access, at least not when we were there. And also, it would be nice to have a breakfast added. Otherwise it was a good choice, and we will surely try to book for this year for at least a week.
