    Irene is very welcoming, The property is very well kept and very clean. The pool is lovely and the gardens are beautiful and peaceful. Although the road is busy, just over the road is the beach and it is a short stroll to town .

    Our Rooms were up two flights of steps. At a fit 70 years of age I was able to carry our bags up and down these steps but some will struggle.

    We found the Villa to be well located outside Ieropetra and ideally placed for walking in Agios Ionnas. We got a great welcome at the Villa and appreciated the welcome gift of croissants, rusks and jams. The pool was a good swimming pool and Ieropetra was (for us) an easy walk. we chose not to do Chrissi Island out of the risk of boredom and extra expense and found lots to do around Ieropetra.

    You really need a car to explore so many beautiful beaches and places which are around Ierapetra.

    Excellent service overall. Irene and her son were extremely helpful and accommodating to all our needs. The extra touches (croissants, tea, coffee on arrival) made settling in very easy. Great location close to many amenities.

    We have stayed at Irene Villa this August and it was a fantastic experience. The host Irene is a very nice lady and always ready to help. The area of villa is very big with nice garden, playground for kids, many toys and books and an amazing pool. It was very close to the beach, a minute to walk, so you could equally enjoy the sea and the pool. There was a nice tavern nearby, though the apartment had all necessary things for cooking. It was a bit far from the city centre, but it was not a problem for us as we had a car.

    Thank you, Irene, for your kindness and help! We had a lovely stay. Villa was a good place with the big green territory, nice pool, and picturesque shallow beach. The beach was long and sandy, and just across the street. It was not crowded even in a season, because of the location. Villa was situated within 20 min walking distance from the city center. But big supermarket with everything needed was in 15 min walk and just in 3 min - a cozy taverna.

    Perfect place to stay in Ierapetra, well equiped and clean villas located at the Makrigialos Road. Even if there is a beach right in the front, Irene's beautiful garden might let u choose a relaxing day at the pool between here variety of plants and flowers. After a very warm hearted welcome, we left the lovely place unfortunately already after 2 nights to continue our island tour. By next chance we would definetly come back.

    The size of kitchen was too small. although it is well equipped with all amenities there is no room for preparation as a worktop.

    The location is perfect opposite the beach. Very close to centre, but a car is a must. Although we had a short stay it was a very comfortable accomodation and will highly recommend.
