Villa Iokasti is located in the area of Kalamaki, only 5 kilometers (3 miles) west of Chania, minutes away from the heart of town or the sandy beaches of the West coast of Crete.

It is a 200 m² (2150 square feet) villa built in a beautiful plot approximately 1.100 m² (11.840 square feet) full of trees, varying from olive trees, lemon trees, palm trees, eucalyptuses, beautiful flowers, and only 400 m away from Kalamaki beach.

The sandy beach of Kalamaki is well organized with beach umbrellas and sunbeds. There you can also find restaurants and coffee shops. Within those 400 meters towards the beach you can find two grocery stores.

At Villa Iokasti we often treat our guests with seasonal fruits and vegetables that we grow at our own garden, as well a fresh eggs from our chicken.

Villa Iokasti is ideally designed to satisfy your need for relaxation and peace, as well as your desire for exploration and fun, as a result of its strategic location and we are always at your service making sure that your stay will be absolutely memorable.

About Andrie Stylianou

We are a small family run business. We are a married couple, George and Andrie and we have a 5 year old daughter named Maya. George grew up in Chania and i am from Cyprus. Our goal, although sounds cliché, is to keep out guests as satisfied as it gets! We live 5 minutes away from the villa therefore we can be there anytime our quests need us. Also, check out our other villa, Villa Meliti under the reference key 3613718!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Iokasti Villa was by far our best European villa experience to date. The quiet location, convenience to supermarkets, the beach and Chania...were all perfect. Details of the home quality and comfort simply cannot be appreciated by the photos on the website--they are far superior to those shown! We had the perfect week and dream about a return visit.

Wonderful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Our 2-week stay with Andrie and George was absolutely wonderful. The location of the house (about 15 minutes outside of Chania old town) is perfect. You can easily drive into the old town and enjoy shopping and a variety of restaurants. Or you have smaller grocery stores, Tavernas and the beach within walking distance. We also found the location ideal for day trips. We were an hour or less from the main beaches and attractions we wanted to see.

The house itself is great, spacious and very well-equipped. We are a family of six and had more than enough space. Some friends of ours from Athens came to stay a few days with us and we were able to accommodate five more people using the sofas and an extra bed that George brought by. It was tight, but worked. We had plenty of towels for showering and beach/pool. Every third day a cleaning crew came in and changed all the beds and towels, washed any dishes left out, and cleaned the entire house. For a mom of four, this was luxury!

The garden area of the house is spacious and well-kept. Our children enjoyed playing ping-pong, kicking around the soccer ball, and visiting the chickens and bunny (who just had babies!). We picked lemons and made fresh lemonade. Our children repeatedly said, "This is the best vacation ever!" and my husband and I agree.

Furthermore, Andrie and George were so helpful with a variety of issues from where to ride horses, ordering fresh fish to grill at home, and even printing out our boarding passes at the last minute! Thank you, Andrie and George, for a great vacation. We will be saving your villa for future trips to Crete. All the best!

Fabulous villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The villa Iokasti was fantastic and the owners were wonderful, warm, accommodating and very friendly.

The large villa was spotlessly clean & the maid came every third day and changed all the bed linens , towels and cleaned the entire villa. The rooms ,pool ,garden and location were fantastic and all completed to a very high standard. We walked to the beach on several occasions and ate at the local tavernas which were all great!

Andrie & George were lovely, they even brought us homemade Greek cakes stuffed peppers(which were the nicest I have ever tasted), local wine, fruit,honey, & nuts ! They were the best hosts we have ever had the pleasure of meeting!

Thank you for helping us to make some wonderful holiday memories of Crete.

Perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of 4 adults at Villa Lokasti in Chania, Crete. From the moment we arrived, where we were warmly met by the owner Andrie and given a tour of the property we were very impressed! The villa itself was beautiful and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Stylishly furnished and spotlessly clean throughout, there was all we needed to ensure a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The owners go a long way to ensuring you feel welcome, with a basket of fresh fruit and even turning up with fresh eggs from their own chickens! The only problem we had with the air conditioning unit was sorted out the very next day. The pool and surrounding terrace and gardens were great not overlooked at all. Being only minutes from a local store where you can get most foodstuff and just a short stroll to the beach and several restaurants and bars it really is in an ideal location. We were made to feel really welcome by Andrie and George and would not hesitate in recommending this villa and location to anyone wanting to holiday in Crete.

Great villa with perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Iokasti is the perfect villa for your summer holiday. The villa is located near the Kalamaki beach and a short taxi ride from Chania and Platanias (10€ oneway). The house is well planned and suites perfectly for two families (4 adults + 4 children). We really enjoyed the garden that offered everything from lemon trees to fresh eggs from the small hen farm.

The house had everything that was listed in the description and the villa owners Andrie & George were really welcoming and helpful.

We can highly recommend this villa for your next summer holiday.
