The villa is north facing toward the sea, so the pool area is in constant sunshine all day. If you prefer shade, however, you will find it on one of the terraces at different times of the day. The villa is cleaned prior to your arrival and at the start of the second week with a mid-week clean available at extra cost. Air-conditioning is available at extra cost. The village of Agia Triada (which can be seen from the side balcony) is less than 10 minutes walk. Here you will find the local taverna (take your phrase book as the owners speak no english) which opens about 7.00pm and serves hot food. At present there is no internet access at the villa, but most of the bars and restaurants in the resort offer free wifi.
Car hire is recommended, but Taxis will pick up from villa, charges are:
to beach resorts of Adelianos Kambos & Platanes 10 - 15euros
Rethymnon 15 - 20euros

We stayed in Villa Jenna for a week in Early August and had a lovely time. Communication with the owner before our holiday was excellent, and when we arrived we were more than happy with our home for the next week. Located on a hill, the view from the villa is stunning, and there are several balconies to enjoy it from. The pool is great and the outside areas have plenty of loungers and chairs. Inside, the villa is well decorated with nice tile floors and plenty of double doors to open to let a breeze in. Kitchen is large and open to the living area, which is more social for cooking when on holiday. Upstairs, the bedrooms are minimal but with plenty of storage, coat hangers etc. There are large balconies for both upstairs bedrooms too - absolutely lovely. Wed recommend paying for the air con in the bedrooms in mid-summer though, it really does help.
Though Villa Jenna is some way out of town, you never feel too remote as there are two other villas close by. However, the area is very peaceful. A car is most definitely needed in order to explore the local area and the rest of the island. But if you wanted to leave it behind on occasion for a trip to the local resort of Platanes, taxis are only about 10-12 euro each way.
Villa Jenna is priced very reasonably, the owner is helpful and Tony, the local villa manager is also a really nice chap, who couldn’t have been more helpful. Location is great with a car, villa is clean and pool, balconies, patios etc are great. There are plenty of lovely beaches within 20 mins drive (Episcopi is highly recommended – sandy beach, a few miles long with tavernas and free sunbeds). We’d also highly recommend a visit to the lake, it’s absolutely beautiful and fantastic fun to hire a pedalo with a slide.
The only reasons we haven’t given Villa Jenna five stars is that we found the beds to be much harder than what we are used to, which did affect our sleep. Also, we struggled to find a few basic cleaning items but Tony did help us out when we asked. The lack of Internet access was disappointing too. Whilst it didn’t really affect our holiday, it is useful to get online to get tips and advice on what to do and where to go in the local area. All in all though, Villa Jenna won’t disappoint, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return.
We had a great time at Villa Jenna. We were blessed with perfect weather (around 28-29 degrees) every day, and had a very relaxed time.
The Cretian driving is something to get used to!
Thank you very much!
Our stay at your villa was excellent. The villa was a nice size and accommodated the 7 of us well, allowing us the opportunity for group gatherings or more private moments on the many balconies. It had all of the facilities that we could have wished for and the large tv was indeed a treat. We particularly enjoyed using the table in the porch for our breakfasts as the pool was inviting and the views were fantastic. The location was ideal as we were close to the beach, with its unrelenting wave battering sea which the three teenagers particularly enjoyed, and a comfortable drive away from the many places that the adults wanted to visit. The little taverna up the hill was a delight and we felt very local. The tavernas in town were also fantastic and catered very well for the mixed needs of our party - teenagers, vegetarians and those of us that wanted to be more adventurous in our tastes. All in all a super location.
Thank you very much for allowing us the use of your lovely villa.
Tracie Steer and group.
ps Your travel instructions were really helpful and made the whole experience much less stressful than it may well have been without them!!
We booked Villa Jenna because our first choice property near Almirida was not available for the first week of our holiday. We loved the villa, which is well appointed and in really relaxing location with great views from the balconies and terraces (so many to choose from!). We look forward to returning again but for a longer period.
Was nice after a hard day treking around to come back to this villa. We had family staying in hotels down in the towns and what a relief we had this villa and not a hotel. 2 things to note though, internet access is not broadband but by the looks of things you need to bring your own modem cable, and second it was a little tricky to access as the roads arent 100%. Apart from that I would recommend to anyone to stay here as it is good value for money and what doesnt appear to be mentioned in adverts is that the view is amazing, the top bedrooms you wake up to a view of the sea and the sunny blue skies.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Jenna. We should point out that at present there is no internet access at the villa.
The property is very well equipped, air conditioning a great bonus. But above all its the view that is just something else, has to be seen to be believed.
