Just looking at the website pictures we had already fallen in love with the appartment run by Stelios and his sister Nina, but we were not prepared for the spaciousness and level of comfort it had to offer. The beautiful old house has high ceilings, tiled floors, lots of authentic details and plenty of room to live. Things like a warm shower, decent wifi, a well-functioning washing machine, a really good matress - I have long stopped taking them for granted and appreciate them all the more.
Our hosts were kind, generous and helpful (the fact that they share these traits with many Cretes doesn't make it less important to mention). They pay attention to detail and really care. We also laughed a lot. Make sure you tell them of your plans because they wil be happy to advise on the way to go about it.
The location is great to get around the western part of the Island. Nearby Chania has a lot to offer in terms of food and things to see, while even closer to home Souda has some decent tavernas and cheap you do need a car really, but that goes for any place on Crete unless you are happy spending most of your time at the same sunny beach (which isn't all that bad either).More
