ZorbaZen House in Crete

Zorba Zen House is a traditional house built in the 1800's located in gorgeous South Crete.

Imagine yourself lounging on one of the house’s 3 patios, sipping a glass of wine and witnessing a breathtaking sunset! All of our patios welcome relaxation and fun looking out over the meadows and the Libyan Sea. Zorba Zen House is a retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life, a slow place to renew your energy, relax and re-nourish, all while offering the perfect base for beach life, hiking and adventurous expeditions along the wild and unexploited Cretan south coast.

Mission: Zorba Zen House was created to offer a beautiful space for people to enjoy the amazing views of South Crete.

Breathtaking Panoramic Sea Views! - Cycladic houses (Greece) for Rent in Kerames, Crete, Greece

Guest review:
"Why did we rate our stay five star overall? The answer is pretty simple - there are no six or seven stars... We spent 6 days at Jivan`s place in Kerames and enjoyed every second. From the beginning (sending our request) to the end (checking out) everything was perfect. The house offers everything you need and the view from the upper terrace is absolutely stunning - we spend a lot of time just sitting there and enjoying it. Jivan and Paul gave us a lot of tips where to go and where to eat (don't miss Michalis and Kyriakos taverna, down at the beach..). If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing and authentic place with different beaches, small tavernas, hiking and other opportunities just a few minutes away - you have found it. We will be back - for sure. THANK YOU again, Jivan!"

Heaven on Earth
5 out of 5 R
Fantastic Crete! This is heaven on Earth if you are looking for peace and tranquality! It appears to us that Crete isn`t affected much at all by the financially crisis in Greece, as it was ”business as usual” whereever we went.
- Elin and Arnfinn, Norway

Deserted Beaches!
Had a fantastic 3 weeks. The coastline is so underdeveloped and we often had the beach to ourselves!
The views from the Villa are breathtaking.
Great Tavernas……………A wonderfully peaceful holiday.

It´s for real – the pictures don´t lie!

As said in all the review written before, the house is situated in the most fantastic settings. The sunset over the blue mountains and Plakias bay in the west has no comparison and in whatever direction you look the views are stunning. The house is located just on the sourternmost edge of the village Kerames, facing the sea. Just a minute’s walk up the narrow streets takes you to the center of the village with the church and the village square hosting a mini version of the Spili drinking fountains. Although truly part of the village, the house is built in a way that make you feel total privacy when sitting on either one of the large terasses.

The house itself is clean, well looked after and equiped as described in the ad. It gives you exactly the right ”greek” feeling with it’s white washed thick stone walls, blue doors and deep window nisches.

Although close to the sea, you need a car to get to the beaches. With many beaches to chose from, Ligres and Preveli became our favourites during our two and a half weeks stay at the house. We especially liked the laid back feeling at the taverna by the end of the road at Ligres.

When renting a privat house, issues concerning contacts with the owner, payment, and how to fix upcoming problems during the stay is of equal importance to views and beaches. When renting Zorbazen everything has worked great, from the first contact with the owner and payment routines, to on site help when we needed help getting the AC started.

Thank you for letting us stay in your house – it gave us a great opportunity to explore Crete beyond the hotel gardens and all-inclusive wristbands.
