    I had to inform the owners of pretty basic needs which they should have attended to prior to our arrival at the villa

    The owners of this place are exceptional people. When we arrived at the villa, we found that there were a few things that needed to be attended to like fluffy towels, aircon remotes had flat batteries and toilet mats that needed replacing. As soon as we mentioned they sorted all of this within an hour, although i would have preferred not asking for basics as it was a 5 star villa that we booked and paid over 2 thousand euros for 5 days. Having said this, the location is amazing, and the views and beaches are superb. The price you are paying is for privacy and convenience. We loved our stay here and had brunch prepared by the owners of the villa. They prepare superb greek cuisine and one should take the opportunity to enjoy a meal or two here.

    Well maintained property with very friendly owners. Very discreet daily service. Dinner in the family restaurant has been excellent. Very flexible for arrival and departure time.

    There were a lot of plastic pieces on the beach unfortunately. This was unpleasant and at the same time very sad. We hope this was a temporary issue and not a permanent environmental problem.

    Perfect house, very comfortable, spacious and clean interior. Great terrasse and swimming pool. Beautiful olive trees. The best to rest with my family.

    The hosts are amazingly nice and helpful, the villa is very cozy and the garden with the private pool is awesome and relaxing. The breakfast is also great with home made jams and freshly picked vegetables. The cook is splendid and can fix a lunch or dinner. The place is quiet and a little far from touring centers which is great if you're looking for some piece and quiet - there is a beach 2 min walking from the villas but we preferred other beaches along the coast. All in all, we loved the place and the hosts and will highly recommend others to go there - we will surly be back. Thanks Demitry and Mariana for a fantastic vacation!

    Hard to find. And beware traveling off-season; although advertising claimed access to hotel facilities, nothing was open. The accommodations were decent, but do not quite rise to the level of "luxury" villas.

    The villas were adorable, clean, and spacious, and very close to the beach. We had a view of the mountain and spent the afternoons we weren't on the beach or exploring the island (it's a very easy trip to Spinalonga and totally doable to Vai or Phaistos) on our porch. The family who owns the villas are the nicest, most generous people. We had breakfast our first morning and dinner our last night with them and they were the best meals we had our entire trip. They made our honeymoon so special and we are so thankful!

In terms of self-cattering facilities you will have all you need. The owners were really kind and helpful. They printed out our boarding passes before departure and even treated us wi a nice plumn cake while waiting for the print outs !

    The villa is a little bit tired. Particularly the pool area. Because of its west orientation it was too hot to sit outside from noon till 17.00. We had to eat inside. A kind of tent or terrace could be a solution.

    We loved the location, so quiet and calm! We enjoyed the pool area. Big bedrooms and living room, comfortable matresses, clean. Well equipped kitchen. The owners are a warm and welcome family. Always there for you. Great food at the restaurant, must try it at least once! Definitely recommended.

    Nothing it was all wonderful.

    Istron Villas is a heavenly villa resort run by the most welcoming and warm family , A breath taking location, stunning views, luxurious top quality villas that have everything you will need for a great family vacation. The ingenious of this family run resort is that they some how are able to provide a luxury holiday feeling yet subtle and unpretentious. We felt at home from the first hello!! We were received with a worm sit down of local wine and a taste of Adonis's wonderful cooking. What a wonderful way to go over our arrangements for the next week and villa facilities, by sitting down with Adonis and Dimitri and having a Greek afternoon drink and snack while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. We had our family reunion at Istron Villas, 3 families totaling 14 people!! we could not have chosen a better place! I chose this place from the reviews without really understanding where it is located, or how big the villas are but what a wonderful surprise. Villas: All 3 villas were fabulous, up on a hill with stunning sea and mountain views. Huge comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms to match each bedroom. All had a great size pool and huge patios, with enough sun beds for any size family. There was always everything you need in the villa. It was perfect to accommodate 3 generations of family in one villa, all had their privacy and own bathrooms yet in the same house. Villas are cleaned daily and towels & bedding changed if you wish, no need to bring a thing from home! The beach: Although up on a steep hill the beach is only a few minutes walk down a flowery path, (or from some villas just down a stair case on the back of the villas). Istron Bay beach waters are flat as a lake with beautifully clear blue water and grey black sand (it is a slightly more course sand, but no need for special shoes to go in the water it is perfectly nice on your feet).
