General Description

Villa Kali Vista is a pretty 2 bed villa located on the outskirts of the charming Greek village of Kokkino Horio and boasts glorious views towards Souda Bay and The White Mountains. The village of Plaka and the sandy beach resort of Almyrida are only a short drive away and offer a good level of amenities. The villa is ideal for couples or a family of up to 6 due to its spacious layout.

This fully air conditioned villa is very comfortably and tastefully furnished providing all you need for a self catering holiday. 

To maximise the spectacular views, the villa has been built with the bedrooms on the ground floor and the living accommodation on the first floor; advantageous during the hot summer months by keeping the bedrooms naturally cooler.

Ground Floor

Both bedrooms and the family bathroom are located on this floor off the spacious hallway.

There is a double bedroom and a large twin bedroom; the latter is dual aspect and also includes a sofa bed to sleep a child up the age 12 (additional charge applies - see prices tab). Both rooms are comprehensively furnished with plenty of wardrobe space, drawers, dressing tables and mirrors. Patio doors lead from each bedroom to the pool terrace; convenient for those who fancy an early morning dip in the sparkling swimming pool. Pretty voile curtains dress the bedroom windows and doors providing added privacy when needed. 

The family bathroom comprises a full sized bath with shower over, hand basin and wc. 

First Floor

The internal staircase (with handrail) leads to the light and airy living/dining area with the L-shaped kitchen conveniently positioned off to one side and an oblong, marble topped dining table with 6 chairs. The modern 3 seater sofa and chair looks out on to those sea views and also faces the TV and corner fireplace - a beautiful focal point to the room. When an additional bed is required the sofa converts to a single bed for 1 child/adult (additional charge applies - see prices tab).

Large patio doors lead out on to a spacious and very private covered terrace running the full length of the villa; the perfect place to soak up those beautiful sea views. In an evening there is no better place to enjoy the magnificent sunsets whilst dining with a chilled glass of wine.

The shower room (newly re-furbished for the 2024 season) comprising of walk-in shower, hand basin and wc is also located on this floor and cleverly positioned to the right of the staircase, allowing the occupants of each bedroom their own private washing facilities.     

External Areas

The fabulous swimming pool benefits from a shallow section for children and takes centre stage in the large tiled terrace with ample sunbathing space for guests. There are 6 sun loungers and 2 parasols available at this villa. The owners provide a BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating for those preferring to dine in and enjoy those magical views this area is renowned for. 

The surrounding garden has an abundance of plants and shrubs producing a wonderful array of colour against the crystal blue mediterranean waters.  

Internet Access

The internet is unlimited with a speed of 24 mbps via satellite.  Full instructions on connecting are inside the villa.

Loyalty Discounts

If you are a returning client and this is your 3rd (or more) consecutive booking with Crete Escapes or your 2nd separate booking in one season, you will qualify for our loyalty discount.

Booking Information

Change-over days are totally flexible but are subject to existing bookings taken either side. If a booking means that the owner would be left with too many "void" days we might not be able to accept it. If this is the case we will contact you without delay to discuss alternatives.

Payment can be made by bank transfer to our sterling account or by debit or credit card (Mastercard or Visa) only.

Our travel information provides details of how to get to Crete including flights to both Chania and Heraklion airports.

If you want to book, please use the availability chart above to check your dates, you can then either book on-line, email or call us on 0330 111 0061.

Please note: although the calendars show live availability and you can book on-line, please note that your booking is not confirmed until we have issued a confirmation of booking. You may prefer not to book your flights until we have confirmed the booking. 

Low occupancy discounts - unfortunately the online booking system automatically calculates the single couple or small party discount based on the number of people entered onto the booking form and the start day of your rental. There are 2 problems with this:-

a) If you are 2 people but not a single couple, or 3 or 4 people but not 2 + 1 or 2 + 2, the system will have automatically calculated a discount when it is not due. Please make use of the "additional notes" box on the booking form to tell us and we will adjust the price accordingly before we confirm your booking.

b) If your rental overlaps from a discounted period to a non-discounted one (or vice versa), the discount calculated will be wrong. In these cases we have to make the adjustment manually. You can still book on-line but we will need to change the price on receipt of your booking request. If the price increases we will contact you to confirm the new price before we confirm your booking and take your deposit.

Please don't let either of these issues put you off making a booking. The discounts are genuine and our villa owners welcome couples and smaller parties out of high season. We just can't fine tune the booking system to account for these 2 circumstances - sorry.

Floor Plans



Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at villa Kali Vista. It’s got some serious views going for it and was very well equipped for a lovely holiday - September 2023.

We had a lovely stay at Villa Kali Vista. The villa was a very comfortable, well equipped home. The views are absolutely beautiful in a very peaceful setting and we will miss sitting out on the terrace having a 'sundowner'. We look forward to staying here again in the future!! - September 2023. 

Really great holiday in this beautiful part of Crete. Lots to see and do and good pool, garden and terrace to relax in too! Local beaches good, Kaltholiki Monastery, Chania, Aptera, Douliana - highlights. Lots of places to eat in Plaka and Almyrida. Still more to explore next time - September 2023. 

A lovely location and beautiful views and sunsets. Good sized outside space and pool. We enjoyed eating our meals on the terrace because of the views. Some great memories were made here. Perfect for 2 couples - August 2023. 

As a family of five, we had a fantastic stay at Kali Vista. Views and sunset were spectacular. Beach days mostly at Almyrida and Kalyves. Great food and calm shallow waters for the kids. Koutalas beach worth a short trip too for an early morning dip. Cafe Francoise in Almyrida best for breakfast. Great family memories made here - we hope to be back! - July 2023. 

Beautiful secluded location with views to dream about. A car needed but totally worth it in what makes for a lovely, quiet and relaxing location. The villa has everything you need including a lovely pool with a shallow end which our children enjoyed. It’s a great base to explore from with two beautiful beaches 5 mins drive away and a secret cove if you’re more of an adventurer. A great ten days was had enjoying local Greek cuisine and soaking up the mountain sunsets - April 2023. 

Villa Kali Vista is new to Crete Escapes for the 2023 season. Guest reviews will be added here as received.
