Wow where do I even begin? For starters my 3 roommates and I spent spring break here at the Sand Villa. Maria coordinated our transportation from the airport to the house which is not even 10 minutes. There we met the hosts and they were so incredibly sweet. The house was exactly the way the pictures show it. It was very clean and well equipped with all your basic necessities. They even left us a bottle of wine, eggs, fruit, toast, and juice to start off with. Periodically during the week they would come make our beds, switch out towels and stock up on our shampoos. While being there I managed to get us locked out. Since there was still wifi outside the house I was able to contact Maria- she responded within minutes. She sent the hosts "ASAP" and ten minutes later they came to let us back in. I would really recommend this place to anyone interested. Side note: it is about a 10 -15 minute drive outside of Fira and not clothes to any stores so I would greatly suggest renting a car. Make sure to specify automatic or standard though.
