“The Villa Renata was a perfect holiday destination for a family vacation.”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Villa Renata really satisfied our expectations. The modern villa has a beautiful garden and a great pool and is located in short distance from the beaches of Kalives and Almyrida. A five minute walk away from the villa you can dine in traditional Greek tavernas or go shopping in a small local supermarket .

“Lovely but beware”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Thought long and hard about posting this but still pretty cross more than a month later.

We had a lovely August 2014 holiday in Villa Renata. As it appears in the photos, great outdoor areas/facilities, well cared for and overall fairly comfortable (kitchen could be better equipped though). But we wouldn't return due to a very poor experience with the booking agent (via Holiday Lettings). All was fine until the night before departure when the villa owner confirmed via text our departure time - half a day earlier than we had organised with the agent almost five months earlier (we had 3am flights so requested to stay on until the evening). Following this the letting agent e-mailed my work at almost midnight stating bluntly that we had to check out at midday or pay €150 extra direct to the owner to cover the additional half day. I picked this e-mail up at 10am the next morning; two hours to leave or hand over €150. No sorry. No apology. Nothing. We waited in until noon for the owner to arrive/discuss. No success. Apparently the payment was now to cover emergency accommodation for the family that had been due to check in to the villa on our last evening. The agent (now e-mailing from an UP Crete Villas e-mail address) was unrepentant and unapologetic: "you have to choose between to pay extra 150 euro or leave the house at 12.00 in the noon." (sic) We 'chose' to pay up given the alternative was 13 hours sitting in a taverna or on the beach.......
So, the 'organised' late check out had been disregarded/forgotten. We wasted a beautiful morning sitting waiting to sort out a situation that, frankly, was ridiculous. The extra charge was a small fraction of the overall holiday cost and would not have been an issue had it been added to the final invoice (after payment of deposit).
Another family arrived in Crete to find their holiday home was not available for their first night. I'm sure they felt as let down as us.

Thank you for your review.

I would like to remind you that we charged you the half day for the late check out as a special offer and not the whole day.

In every place in the world hotels and villas charge the extra day.

We never confirmed you that you will stay for free the extra half day. We think is not right to give a review of 2 stars in that villa. We both know that you had great holidays in our villa

We hope to see you again.

Best Regards
