Great hosts ,great accommodation great views , great holiday, We needed to get away and recharge our batteries after a less than wonderful 2015. We could not have found anything better than Robins Nest Robin and Sue Were so helpful in telling us about places to go and things to see. The apartments are very clean with a good wet room and balcony with wonderful mountain views. The pool is a good size. We came home refreshed and ready to face the English winter.

“All the best in one place”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

First of all, Afrata is a wonderful place for those who want to get away from the city noise. There is a nice little beach with crystal clear water, perfect for snorkeling.

In fact, we think, that Robin's Nest is the best place to stay in Afrata. We enjoyed great service and unobtrusive British hospitality.

Moreover, you will have the possibility to go for a night swim in the swimming pool and enjoy stargazing.

All in all, we highly recommend Robin's Nest and hope to come back there some day.

“Simply wonderful!”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Robin's Nest is very well maintained and clean, the pool is spacious and gorgeous, the owners are very welcoming and always helpful. There are great tavernas in the village and plenty more in Kolymbari and surrounding areas. Wonderful beaches too, some good for snorkeling, and a long fairly sandy one towards Kissamos. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was just what we wanted: peaceful, restful and uncomplicated. We would love to go back!
A big thank you and warm greetings to the owners, Sue and Robin!

“Made to feel at home, lovely stay at these apartments”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just got back from staying at Robin's Nest Apartments. Sue and Robin made us feel so welcome and could not do more for us. The apartment was lovely and very, very clean and a fantastic view from our room over the pool and beyond to the lovely views across to the sea. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed.

Sue and Robin recommended a local Taverna in the village and also another 1 in Koylmbari called Edem which is excellent.

We chose to have the transfer service and they were waiting to pick up up on arrival and took us back to the airport, thank you.

The Breakfast were excellent and we had a different second course each day after the fresh fruit (from their garden fruit trees, very nice) yoghurt, cereal, fruit juice, coffee and Toast. The pancakes, cakes, biscuits and homemade breads and Jams are delicious, thank you Sue! Robin's service at breakfast was great.

We recommend these apartment to anyone who wants a stunning quiet location. 5 minutes drive to Kolymbari if you want more activity in the evening.

Thank you Sue and Robin and we hope to see you again.

Lynda and Mick

“Peaceful, Scenic and outstanding hospitality”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Beautiful scenery, you could walk for hours through the mountains surrounding Afrata.
The owners, Sue and Robin, couldn't do enough for us, Sue's home baking is just sensational, I could have lived off her carrot cake for the entire week. Morning fry ups cooked by Sue would consist of produce all farmed in Afrata and were the perfect way to start each day. Robin even took me out on his sailing boat on one of the days which was a great experience. Taking a trip into Chania is a must, sitting in one of the restaurants by the harbour watching the world go by over lunch and a few beers then walking through the market areas looking for bargains.
The end of our trip could so easily have been spoilt when Easy Jet cancelled our flight home and did not offer us another flight for a further 5 days, we were a little panicked but Sue and Robin were marvellous, allowing us use of their home phone to organise our flight as well as informing work and family at home, they then found space for us to stay the extra days, despite having more customers arrive as well as their family visiting from England. Sue and Robin invited us to join them and their family for evening meals for the rest of our stay and we spent our bonus nights sitting on the patio by the pool enjoying a few bottles of wine and Sue's delicious home cooking with great company and many laughs. We cant wait to go again this year.
