Wow..... these reviews are written for a reason we all have different expectations, standards and our needs. Our needs were; somewhere private, clean, relaxing and peaceful. This villa met all our needs. The family are so kind, friendly and warm. Why book somewhere that doesn't offer this?
Istron Villas is run by a hard working family whose main objective is to ensure we had a lovely stay in their property!
From day one they've been accommodating. The villa was cleaned on arrival and during our stay, beds comfortable and warm. We stayed at Marianna and had a bedroom and bathroom each.
Now.... our views were beautiful, quite amazing.... understated.
WiFi is good and strong.
Kitchen well equipped.
We ordered breakfast and dinner from the owners...... totally amazing, fresh, Greek and abundance!!! Can't say enough of good things..... it's just what you need for a peaceful getaway!!!

We stayed at Istron Villas for 3 nights during the last leg of our Crete vacation. We absolutely loved our villa! The location is great...it's a short drive to Mochlos, Agios Nicholaos and many other sites. The private pool is such a treat, and the beach nearby is stunning and crystal clear. The kitchen was well equipped... it was such a pleasure to sit on the veranda in the morning with a fresh cup of coffee, gazing at the mountains in the distance. The small town of Istron isn't super touristy, which is nice, ... we had really great meals the two nights we dined in town. Wifi in the room and out on the veranda works fine.
I've read some other reviews from guests who didn't think these villas were luxurious enough... I guess that all depends on your idea of luxury... We LOVED the fact that the villa was home-y and comfortable.... the perfect ending to our time in Crete.
We hope someday to return to Istron Villas!

Warm friendly service, super cleaning staff, comfortable bed, own pool, a refuge from the coastal madness! Good location for exploring (Gournia, Lasithi, Mochlos) and the best beach in the area to which guests have access. The Panayiotopoulos family are lovely and their cooking divine. Don't miss out on the personal chef experience! The fish soup is particularly delicious - thank you for secret recipe!

Room Tip: The villa for two is on ground level

We spent five days there with the family. We had an excellent time. The kids enjoyed it very much and we had a very relaxing time. The villas are well maintained and spacious. Big bedrooms, traditionally furnished. One big marble bathroom and a WC with shower. Aircondition in all rooms. The Kitchen is well equipped but some appliances need to be replaced. The terrace and pool area wasalso sapacious and nice though a refurbishment is needed. Also because the villas are west oriented from noon till about 18.00 it was very hot and we had to eat inside the villa. An umbrella is not enough. The family that run the villas were very welcome and warm. They also offer breakfast and dinner with dishes inspired from the Cretan tradition and with the best ingredients. You should try both. The beach close to the villas is ok but very close by you can find better ones. Last but not least our compliments to the maids for the excellent cleaning! Overall we had a great time and we definitely recommend it if you seek a place to relax and calm down.

The villas are by far the best option in istron bay
The staff was lovely and very helpful
The food was great! (Breakfast was amazing and rich)
The villas are clean well equipped and worth the price
If you are looking for a quiet getaway that's the spot.
