We stayed for a week in this fabulous apartment. It couldn't have been more perfect.
We both absolutely loved the huge balcony and the apartment itself was clean and spacious. Alki the owner was really easy to deal with, friendly and responded to emails quickly. He picked us up from the bus station and sent an email to check we were having a good time and reassure us that if we needed anything he was only an email away.
Hospitality obviously runs in the family (as it seems to do with all the Greek people!) as his parents left little plates of goodies for us including delicious home baked cake and fresh eggs and veg.
The apartment was just across the road from the harbour and beach so we did lots of swimming and snorkelling. The town itself is beautiful and packed with cool shops, stylish bars and tasty tavernas. I can't wait to return one day soon and when we do I will make sure we can get this apartment again! The only caveat I would mention is that the apartment is up 2 flights of steep stairs so wouldn't be suitable for people with mobility problems.

Perfectly located for wandering the beaches and city streets alike. Friendly people. Clean accommodations. Everyone we met helped to make our stay on Crete so very memorable. Cheers!

Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely apartment in perfect location for all amenities. Large private balcony a real bonus, not often available in central area. Owner could not have been more helpful & a chat with his mother over her delicious coffee was delightful.

“Excellent Location”

We were given a very warm welcome on arrival by the owner Alki Spanda and subsequently by his parents who live downstairs. Alki showed us round the apartment and gave us a lot of helpful tips about the city generally. He reassured us that he would be just a phone call away if we ever needed anything.
The apartment is in an excellent location with the balcony offering beautiful views of the harbour. There are excellent eateries, a supermarket and a bakery all within walking distance. In fact, all of the old city can be explored on foot from the apartment.
The apartment has most things needed by holiday makers. It is clean and comfortable.Our 14 year old son who slept on the sofa cum bed found it comfortable but the apartment is really ideal for a couple.
What we missed not having was a washing machine. We were told that there is a launderette nearby. Also, for cooking, there was only one saucepan that could go on the hob but there were a few glass dishes that could be used in the microwave. If you rent a car parking is an issue. There is a Marina nearby that offers parking spaces for 60 cents an hour but if you have to use it for about 5-7 days then it quickly adds up. The Cretan police are quite tolerant- they whistle and give you enough time to move your vehicle before slapping on a ticket but one can't be on the look out all the time and hence you need to find an approved parking space.
Our son went scuba diving which was organised by Joanna at the Cretan Safari just down the road which our son enjoyed very much.The diving school was Kalypso and we found them to be very professional and knowledgeable with safety their utmost priority.
All in all, a great holiday. We found the Cretans to be extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely will return.
