Probably the best house you can rent on Crete 🙂 The hosts are very nice people, they treated us like old friends. Upon arrival the house smelled wonderful - the had prepared greek mussaka in the owen for us. We were also given a basket of greek goods as a gift. There were fruits, candies, coffee, rakija and fully loaded fridge. Everything was perfectly clean. There was a lot of toys and stuff for the children - they were never bored. We also enjoyed the paddleboard. If the weather is rough, it is great that the veranda can be closed by the glass panels. We had a great time.


Extremely helpful and kind host. Fully equipped house even with local delicious treats. Thank you! 😍😍


I cannot rate this villa highly enough, it is extremely well equipped with everything you could need both inside and outside, when we arrived the host had made us some authentic Greek food and a welcome pack with wine/bread, etc which was gorgeous and what a lovely touch! It is a fantastic place to stay right on the beach, with restaurants/supermarkets on the doorstep. I can not wait to return


The location of the house and its beautiful decoration! The equipments: we had everything we could need and it was perfect for the kids (secure, equipped and with many many games). The great hospitality of Maria and her husband. Not only we were extremely welled welcomed, but we had many delicate attentions during our stay. Thank you 🙂


Golden Shell is a gem! The location is amazing, the hostess is friendly, kind and ready to help. The amenities at the place are the best we have ever had - especially for kids. Endless toys and water toys and things to entertain the kids by the sea. And for the adults too - the paddle board was very appreciated. The garden was incredible and every chair and chaise lounge invited you to sit, relax and soak up the sunshine and sea. I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is!
