Company information

My name is Kostas Vasilakis and I have studied marketing and business management. Already being an owner of two successful villas and co-owner of a well known web development company in Greece, I started to manage other vacation rentals in 2012. I have the full management of all the vacation rentals that I represent, knowing everything about them and the areas in which they are located. My aim is to help the homeowners to manage their vacation properties to their full advantage and guests to relax and have the finest holiday experience with 24/7 concierge service providing advice and information for all their concerns throughout their stay. Let me be your personal advisor for your holidays and let’s start organising your trip in Crete together! My company which called “etouri” is located in Rethymno, Crete and is approved by the Greek Tourist Organisation.

Property information

Perched atop the hill above Pantanassa, on the slopes of Rodia mount, Villa Omikron offers spectacular panoramic vistas of the Aegean sea, Heraklion gulf, Dia island and the surrounding mountains, as well as colorful sunset views. Located on a 2700 m2 plot near the picturesque village of Rodia and just a short drive away from Heraklion town may be your starting point to explore all the island of Crete has to offer or serve as your private paradise for refreshment and recreation. The 250 m2 residence is divided into 3 floors and it features 5 bedrooms and can accommodate 10 guests and up to 11 if necessary! A private heated pool with kids' compartment, BBQ facilities and ping pong table are also available! The swimming pool can be heated with an additional daily charge. Please note that the pool heating has to be used for the entire stay and it requires at least one week’s advance notice.

Neighbourhood information

Villa Omikron is located close to the historical village Rodia, built at a prominent position on the namesake mount, 18 km northwest of the city of Heraklion. Built amphitheatrically, it is often called the “Balcony of Heraklion” as it offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Aegean sea, the famous Dia’s Island, and the surrounding mountains. Rodia features some important historical monuments, like the Venetian villa of the Kallergis family. The Kallergis family was of noble Byzantine origin and had this house built in the 16th century. Although you cannot visit the interior of the villa, which has been fitted with new doors and window frames, it’s rather interesting to see the adjacent church and other old buildings around it, including the ruins of an old “fabrica” (olive oil factory). Explore the picturesque village by walking around its narrow streets and squares where you can find all the basics during your stay, such as mini market, bakery, gas station, pharmacy, lots of cafés ("kafeneion”, as the locals call them), as well as taverns! Additionally, there are many family attractions that can be easily visited from the villa, such as a water park, the Cretaquarium, dinosaurs theme park (Dinosauria ) etc. The vicinity of the property to some important Cretan must-see attractions such as Knossos Palace, archeological museum in Heraklion and Spinalonga islet is also a significant asset making it an ideal holiday base. Other major facilities of the island are only a breath away from the villa, such as the Nikos Kazantzakis International Airport and the port of the city, as well as the exit to the highway that gives easy access to the centre of Heraklion and to the other cities in Crete such as Rethymno, Chania, Agios Nikolaos, Hersonissos, Malia, Elounda and others.
