First of all i want to thank Katharina, Maria and Matt, we spend some very relaxing and wonderfull days at kanakis Apartments. Maria, Matt and Katharina make us feel at home. We take a greek breakfest which i would recomend to all, and the best Thing is that Katharina Cooks every day a typical greek dinner which is really fanastic. We do not have to go out to find excellent good greek cooking.Also kanakis Apartments has a very clean and nice pool and a private beach where we have relaxed many times. If you want to make any excursion Matt and Maria have very good tipps...including Restaurants in Chania or Rethymnon or beaches or monastires. They offer very good food with here own olive oil which we also bought in the oil factory of Marias brother. All in all we have to say that we can warmly recomend this Apartments, don`t miss the White wine, the cafe fredo, and the gin Tonic from Matt. :) best regards to all persons from kanakis app. who made our Family holliday such a wonderfull stay we have a Family room at the first floor which was very clean and comfortable, the only Thing was the street at night which could be in some cases (Trucks or busses) a little bit noisy. I think we will recomend a room which has beach side , there you have a fantastic view at the see and the beach. But all rooms are big and comfortable.

The hosts are very nice, helpful people. When my husband fell very ill and we couldn't come they showed their understanding and agreed to change the dates of our stay, although they didn't have to. I am very grateful for this and look forward to visit them on a new date. Apart from that they speak very good English and the correspondence was very professional.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks holidays at kanakis apartments. We were there to celebrate the wedding of my sister in law in creta. The location of the hotel is really good direct at the sea with small private beach and swimming pool. It is 15 min from the city of rerhymno, really cute with plenty of restaurants. There is also a good taverna next to the hotel and it is also possible to have breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel, the pool and the rooms are really clean. The pool is really fantastic and warm. Our room was cleaned everyday even thought we were always sleeping late. We had a room with sea view and enjoyed it really much. Kiki at the reception was also cooking for us all the time. The food was delicious and she was super flexible with us and especially our 2 boys (4,6). She organised and cooked a dinner for my 40th birthday for 17 guests and it was delicious! We were so happy with our stay that we will come back in 2 weeks as our holidays in mallorca were cancelled. See you soon and thank you! Julie, Christian, Joshua, Charles

I spent a week at Kanakis Apartments with my wife and two kids (14 and 15) in autumn 2019. We enjoyed the stay very much, especially the friendly atmosphere of the family run hotel. Location is good with a small beach and nice pool - although we didn't use it at this time of year. The place is very clean and simple but comfortable.

A small apartment hotel run by a lovely family. A hearty and helpful attitude, a luxurious breakfast with treats made by the family mother. I also recommend the delicious home-cooked dinner. The courtyard is lovely with nice and well-kept corners for sitting by the sea and a small private beach. Located on the main road which is on the back front and not at all noticeable, the apartments are well insulated by noise. The rooms are very simple, good cleanliness, unfortunately we did not have a double bed room which was a disadvantage for us. The shower is small and it is desirable to shorten the shower curtain too long.
