We had a week in Crete with 2 families. Sadly we didn't see much sunshine but Villa Zoe was so lovely we had a fantastic time. It was extremely well equipped with everything needed in every room. The pool area was superb and as we went late in the year we paid extra to heat the stunning swimimg pool. This was a good call and we enjoyed plenty of time in it. We had a car which made it easy to go for supplies, restaurants and trips out. We highly recommend this villa and thank Alexandra for her hospitality, especially the galaktoboureko (custard Tart).

Jude, Sept 2021

We had a fantastic week at Villa Zoe, the location is great and the views are absolutely stunning. As a group of friends with small children, there was lots of space and the pool area was great for all of us. Alexandra was on hand to answer any questions and was very responsive. We would 100% recommend staying here!

Karen, Aug 2021

We stayed at Villa Zoe in the Summer of 2021 for 10 days as a group of 10, two families of 5. The villa is huge and plenty big enough for us all to spread out, useful when you have tweens and teens. The quality of the fixtures and fittings is incredible and the whole place was spotless when we arrived and after our mid stay clean. What however really sets Villa Zoe apart from other beautiful villas we have stayed at is the view. It is better then the photos and the sunsets every night were to die for. The outside bar got a lot of use and whils we ate at the villa a lot of evenings, doing a bbq, we could also walk into the village for restaurant meals too. It truly was a spectacular location and I would highly recommend it.

Michael, August 2019

Family holiday to celebrate 2 big birthdays. Wonderful villa with views to match. Fully lived up to expectations with Alexandra and Vera always on hand. Close to centre of Plaka with many taverns to enjoy. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a holiday there.

Maren, July 2019

Hei! Da er vi hjemme igjen i Norge. Oppholdet på Kreta har vært flott. Takk for en godt organisert dag i går. Flott sted og restaurant. Vi har svømt i grotter, dykket og kost oss. God sommer. Hilsen Maren

Michaela, Oct 2018

My family (seven adults and three children) spent a week in Villa Zoe in late October and celebrated my mother's birthday. The villa was perfect, the views amazing and the friendliness and hospitality even better than expected. Before our arrival Alexandra was always there, just a message away, ready to answer all our questions. She helped us with arranging taxi from the airport, a lovely lunch when we arrived and as an extra service she fixed massage in the house for my partens and a culinary evening with a chef that came to the house and prepared dinner for us. Can highly recommend these extra services and Villa Zoe to those who would like to have something extra for their holiday! Hope we can come back soon.

Charles, 2018

This year was our fourth year visiting Crete and our 4th year of going via Alexandra to help us find the right house for a large group of adults and children. We have rented two really lovely properties through Alexandra, Villa Zoe in Plaka and Villa Daphne in Loutraki, and both offered a very high level of comfort and service. Her attention to detail and the touches she brings to the properties helps makes our stay extremely comfortable. We have become friends and we completely trust her and would not hesitate to recommend her services.

Sussanne, June 2018

We really enjoyed our stay at Zoe. Everything worked out perfect, and the hospitality was outstanding. The massage was wonderful and we would indeed recommend both Villa Zoe as well as Alexandra as the perfect host. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Kind regards Susanne and family.

Eric, August 2018

Everything’s perfect in this villa that makes you feel like at home! The outside space is great with an amazing view. Alexandra is very kindly and available easily We highly recommend this villa.

Marianne, June 2017

Huset og eiendommen er fantastisk flott. Vi nyter oppholdet.

Kathleen, June 2017

Dear Alexandra, We loved Crete and feel so fortunate to have chosen Villa Zoe. Thank you for your immediate attention to our needs. Your staff is wonderful just like Villa Zoe. Thank you again, Kathleen and Family

Rafi, August 2016

Nothing less than perfect! I must admit, I am a frequent user of Airbnb premises, and rarely bother write a response, BUT, this Villa must get what it deserves! as it is by far over and above any other … This is the best place i have ever seen, or ever stayed in. The owner, and the host have gone far out of their way to make us feel at home, down to the last detail. The place actually looks better that the pictures (sounds hard to believe, but it is really better than the pics). the villa is fully equipped, missing absolutely nothing! the entire compound is extremely pampering, quiet, and worth every penny. we will definitely be back there! soon!!

Jenny, August 2016

La villa est exactement comme décrite. La piscine est super. Alexandra nous a chaleureusement accueilli, nous a fait savoir qu’elle est a notre disposition 24/7 et nous a donne quel que conseils utiles. Elle a même offre de nous emmener en excursion. L’equipe de nettoyage qui est arriver deux fois pendant la semaine (une pour nettoyer et une pour changer les draps.) est très calme, efficace et serviable. En tout et pour tout, nous somme très satisfait et planifions d’y retourner a la prochaine occasion.

Jill, July 2016

The villa is luxurious, clean and very comfortable. The views are stunning. The pool is wonderful & just the right temperature. Alexandra and her staff were very helpful. The recommendation of the Emerald restaurant was spot on – a lovely place. Almyrida is lovely.

Beth, 2016

Hi, The house is beautiful. Vera and her husband met us and gave us a wonderful tour of the home-very welcoming. Otherwise things are great. Kind regards, Beth & Phil

Cecilie & Liem, 2016

Hei kjære Alexandra! Det er vi som skal takk deg for at all planlegging, gjennom Mail og telefoner, ble akkurat slik vi ønsket, og en stor takk for at DU bidro til at vi fikk verdens beste dag sammen med familie & venner. Vi kommer alltid til å husket deg og alt du har gjort for oss som et godt minne. Tiden i Villa Zoe ble perfekt og vi storkoste oss alle dagene og selvfølgelig spesielt på selve bryllupsdagen i Villaen. Alle våre kjære gjester har takket oss for at vi gav dem en eventyrlig opplevelse ved å dra på tur til Mamara, og det hadde heller ikke skjedd hvis det ikke var for DEG! Du har et stort hjerte som virkelig gjør det beste for de som ønsker å bruke din ekspertise. ALT har levd opp til forventningene og kanskje ende litt mer, så tusen hjertelig takk. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake til Kreta en gang og håper virkelig at vi kan ta oss råd til å leie en flott villa ved en annen anledning. Kontakten håper jeg vi beholder og jeg skal alltid framsnakke ditt varme vesen og alle de flotte villaene du har på Kreta. Om ikke lenge håper jeg bildene fra Andreas kommer også, og da skal jeg sende deg en liten hilsen. Ønsker deg også alt godt videre og en riking god sommer på Kreta og i Norge. Stor klem og hilsen fra Cecilie & Liem

Anisha, 2016

Dear Alexandra, We had a wonderful time at the villa, thank you again so much for your hospitality! The villa was amazing, everything we were hoping for. We will definitely recommend to others. Take care and all the best. Anisha

Trine, 2016

Da må vi få takke for en drømmeuke i fantastiske Villa Zoe. Super service og vi hadde vår siste middag på Elpis i Plaka. Helt topp, skulle ha oppdaget den litt før. Kommer veldig gjerne tilbake. Skal hilse fra alle. Mvh, Trine og Tore

Michal, 2015

Hello Alexandra, We had a wonderful time in Crete, and in the lovely villa. Thank you for your warm and professional attentiveness; we look forward to meeting again in the near future. Until then, sending best regards, Michal

Aida, 2015

Dear Alexandra It was wonderful to meet you and have the opportunity to have a drink with you too. You seem a wonderful and very interesting person who we are pleased to have connected with. Please do contact us to meet up when you are in London. We will certainly look into this and arrange for next trip. We are all safely back in london now and it’s pouring rain! Missing Crete already, but have magical memories to daydream about for sometime. Warm regards Aida and Simon

Simon, 2015

This is easily the nicest villa I’ve ever stayed in and Alexandra helped to make our overall experience brilliant throughout. The photos and descriptions in Airbnb are very accurate. The villa is particularly well-equipped for cooking both inside and out, and in addition to the amazing pool area, there are plenty of other outside spaces and terraces in the grounds. Alexandra was extremely helpful and communicative leading up to the stay, and even arranged airport taxis and a welcome pack for our late arrival. When the cleaners came mid-week, they were very quiet and efficient – completely unobtrusive. I only have positive things to say about my experience throughout at this villa and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it or return myself!

Eli, 2015
