The property is fantastically homely on the inside and still manages to amaze on the outside with the pool, eye catching lighting and the friendly local shops. We chose the property for a relaxing 'pad' for a clubbing and sightseeing holiday.
Malia is a 20 (max) minute taxi, the Hernosissos town centre is a scenic, beautiful beach-side walk that only takes about 30 minutes max if you walk slowly to take it all in (and I absolutely recommend you do either at sunrise and sunset).
As for the landlord and property, it has everything you would need for entertainment and in the kitchen. The landlord was kind enough to show us around on the first day and provided lots of essentials and even some food.
There are 3/4 restaurants locally, including a very high quality (medium pricing) fish restaurant which has a beautiful sea backdrop. Highly recommended area and property for both families and groups of friends. I expect to be back at some point!
