RICHARD & ALISON MARTIN
“We have long been in love with Greece and decided to make it our home in retirement. We had considered moving to other Greek islands, but after going on holiday to the north west of Crete we agreed that this was the island that has everything for a permanent residence. Whilst exploring the beautiful villages around Vamos we recognised a development of stone houses that we had our previously seen on the internet. Once we realised the guard dog was securely tied up in the property next door, we decided to take a closer look ! We were extremely impressed with the beautiful designs and quality of the stone built properties. We particularly liked the attention to detail which incorporated many lovely traditional features.
When we got home to the UK we contacted Mr Daskalakis, with regards to building a similar house for us on a plot that we had already purchased near Kastelli Kissamos. We were immediately impressed with his helpful manner and advice, and also his perfect English.
On returning to Crete the following year we had the pleasure of meeting Nick in person on another of his fantastic developments. Nick provided us with his honest professional opinions concerning the best way forward for us. We soon came to the conclusion that this was the man we trusted to build our dream home.
We are now at the stage where Nick’s team have created a beautiful design. They listened to our requirements and then added so much more to produce the final plans. We have appreciated the fact that we have never been pressured by Nick or his team into making decisions. At one time we had considered renovating an old property , although on reflection we have incorporated the best of both worlds; a stone built house with traditional features and all the benefits of modern living.
We believed that the plot we had purchased had all the full permissions necessary to build – how wrong we were. Nick and his team have doggedly pursued all the planning licenses required on our behalf, and we now find ourselves close to commencing the build (as at one time we thought we would have to turn the plot over to the goats ! ) We know we would not be in this position without Nick and Nadia , the gifted architect he commissioned to work on our project.
In conclusion, we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Nick Daskalakis and his company to anyone who wants to make their Cretan dream come true. Nick is a special person and a great ambassador for Crete. We are really glad to have met him.”
