Did not get the sea view that we had booked, the owner said you have a view yes Hills!!! Good location for food and drinks and a short walk away from the beach. No guarantee you will get what you booked.

I stayed at Penelope Traditional stone house as one of five people for a week. We arrived after midnight and were welcomed by owner who gave us a bottle of water and 4 pieces of fruit. it would have been nice to have had a basic food pack given the lateness of our arrival. We

We were looking forward to our time in Crete, especially from the photos of the traditional home we had booked in Mavriakiano, Elounda where old school architecture was promised to be combined with modern amenities, a private pool, aircon throughout, wifi. Our first warning

Response from Perakise, Manager at The Traditional Homes and Villas of Crete
Responded 26 Jul 2018
Madam, I refer to your comments as above regarding your one night stay ONLY at the most well known from the point of Architectural Value traditional home of ARGIRO taught in the Athens University being one of the best in Greece , and as these comments are biased , untrue, and highly defamatory , I would like to present below the true picture of your reservation as follows : Your reservation concerned a Home of 5 adults in Mavrikiano-Elounda. Regretfully due to severe sweage problem this home was unavailable at time of your arrival . We directed you therefore for the first night only to the 5 star Villa ( ALMOND TREE-) with large garden and private swimming pool in the village of Vrouhas 7 klm away, which you refused even to see. . Finally the home of ARGIRO at Mavrikiano - Elounda was used for the arrival night only . This home and all others have tv, a/c, internet, fireplace, safe, parking, hairdrier . Thus you only make untrue statement and comments as you have not even asked for the Internet Code of the home. GREAT PITY. Next morning and early having solved the problem we directed you to the home originally booked DIMITRA/EFTERPI with private swimming pool which you have refused to be accommodated in . Least but not last Holidays are for Laugh, enjoyment , and pleasure , but as you are stuck on internet, you missed them all. You could have departed without even informing us of the reasons , and without writing this long essay , which represents sorrow and misery., and unhealthy feelings . Certainly it took you very long to write ?? You purposely ommited to mention that you and family have been offered a full dinner at time of late arrival and the taverna next door , for which you did not have the kindness to say THANK YOU We are in business for people of Culture , who love History, and adore the old homes and like to live the way Cretans do . . You do not represent these people at all .. Vaggelis

We stayed in the Monestary last June with our daughter and her 3 friends. We loved it so much we came back in October (just the two of us) and stayed at another Traditional Homes of Crete Property - Argyros House. These are typical traditional properties, both the houses we

about villa Margarita - really astonishing. It was full of stories you could feel from figures like the legendary director Nikos Kundouros, American ambassadors and Scandinavian royalty. The decoration too. We are not talking about mass produced retro-looking objects but real

"My best tip is to not stay here at all."
"Argyros House has the best sea view we've ever experienced in a holiday home"
"Make sure you book a sea view if you opt for an apartment."
"The brochure photo's lead you to believe there is a pool- there isn't, but the house is so quirky & in such a stunning location that we soon got over it!"
