LOCATION
The apartment is on the second floor and very well positioned on the water’s edge, with superb views across the sea from one balcony and a view of the marina from the second balcony. The location is also very good, being away from the bustle of the town centre but in walking distance of restaurants, shops and many of the town’s attractions. There is a small beach around 50 metres walk and a better beach less than five minutes walk away. The apartment can only be reached by steps so it is unsuitable for anyone who has impaired mobility. There is a restaurant on the ground floor; we experienced no problem with noise either from the restaurant or elsewhere but cooking smells were noticeable on the rear balcony.
ACCOMMODATION
The standard of the accommodation is well above average. The balcony at the front is ideal for two persons to dine al fresco, with spectacular views. The rooms are attractively furnished and have bright decor. The bedroom has spacious fitted wardrobes. The twin beds are comfortable. There is a good sized shower, plus a hand basin and toilet. The kitchen is superbly equipped with almost everything you might require; the only item not present was a dishwasher but as this apartment is for 2-3 persons that was not a problem. The accommodation was spotless when we arrived and was cleaned part way through our stay. The towels and other items were changed every few days.
PARKING
We were able to park in proximity to the accommodation without any problems or charges.
ARRANGEMENTS
The owner, Ellen, was a great pleasure to deal with at every stage. She speaks fluent English (among her other languages) and answered all our questions promptly prior to our arrival. Ellen made us feel very welcome upon arrival. Unlike most holiday accommodation where you are left to navigate your way through unfamiliar streets, Ellen met us on the outskirts of the town and guided us right to the front door. A generous welcome pack awaited us inside so there was no need to rush out in search of food and drink.

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
We have just enjoyed a two week stay in a fantastic apartment, that was tastefully decorated and furnished. The views from the balcony were stunning. The locality was perfect, so close to the beach, restaurants and cafe bars. Ellen is a wonderful lady, who was very helpful without interfering in our holiday. We have been to Ag Nic many times and this was by far the most enjoyable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone. So good in fact we have already booked for next year.

A PERFECT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for four nights at the Chrysso apartment at the beginning of June 2012 and it completely surpassed all of our expectations; we only wish we could have stayed longer!

The apartment has been renovated to a very high standard, it is stylishly furnished, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The welcome pack provided on our arrival was particularly welcome and thoughtful. The view from the apartment balcony is beautiful, looking out over the bay and nearby beach and was spacious with doors opening onto it from both the living area and the bedroom.

The apartment is very conveniently located close to the beach, tavernas, bars and shops. As the resort of Agios Nikolaos is fairly compact, everything is easily reached on foot and we enjoyed walking to the Marina around the headland and to the lake.

There were a wide variety of tavernas to choose from and the food was of a high standard; we particularly enjoyed the Du Lac restaurant and Ofou To Lo overlooking the beach. We also enjoyed cocktails at Mocca overlooking Kitroplatia beach and at Alexandros rooftop bar which overlooks the lake.

Lastly, but by no means least, we found the people of Agios Nikolaos so friendly and genuinely nice wherever we went which really helped to make the holiday so enjoyable. Maria and Ellen, the apartment owner, were so lovely and helpful and always eager to answer our queries and give advice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and certainly plan to return!”

We had a wonderful time in this apartment by Kitroplatia beach during our stay at the end of March 2012. The apartment is newly renovated and the interior design especially tasteful. It is very comfortable and we had everything we needed (and more). The large, sheltered balcony is south-facing, which meant we could sit out enjoying temperatures of around 20°C even in March.

The location is excellent, right next to Kitroplatia beach, which has several good restaurants (we particularly liked the fish restaurant at the opposite end of the beach). The centre of Agios Nikolaos and the lake are just a few minutes’ walk away. Agios Nikolaos is an excellent base for exploring the central and eastern parts of Crete, including the nearby mountains.

Joop and Maria were very helpful in meeting us, showing us the apartment and giving us tips on the area. The service included cleaning halfway through the week.

We can highly recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: We were glad we could finish the apartment in time for the season. It was lovely to decorate it and make sure that the guests feel like being at home. Greece is wonderfull but Agios Nikolaos and Elounda are paradise.

The funny thing is that, when you put a lot of effort into the renovation and decoration, choosing the right beds, taking nice and warm colours, you immediately attract people who have the same tast regarding these subjects. The pictures are of course of great help!

We moved 6 years ago from the Netherlands and Belgium to this fantastic region. We do not regret it one minute. The mediteranean way of living contributes so much to life although we came from well organised countries, in compare to Greece sometimes a bit too organised. This will be the main reason why we love it here so much.

Kitroplatia is so centrally located that you could even think of going to Agios by bus and not taking a car. There is a direct busconnection from the airport of Heraklion to Agios Nikolaos which takes about one hour and 7 euro per person. If you want to make excursions and want to do shopping you are depending on a car.

We look forward meeting you in Agios Nikolaos!

IN AGIOS NIKOLAOS KIES JE VOOR DIT APPARTEMENT!

  • 5 out of 5
Om maar met de deur in huis te vallen: een vakantie op Kreta in dit appartement is zéér zeker een aanrader.
In de zomer van 2011 hebben we met 4 personen (vader, moeder en 2 tienerdochters) genoten in dit appartement. Niet groot, maar wel comfortabel en een zeer goede ligging t.o.v. restaurants, winkels en vertrekpunt voor trips. Maar vooral: zeker dichtbij het strand.
Vanaf het balkon kijk je direct over de baai van Mirabello en zie je het strand liggen op nog geen 80 meter. Ideaal voor een (snelle) verfrissende duik en zonnebaden op het knusse strandje.
Het is heerlijk zitten op het balkon met uitzicht op Agios en de baai, waar je cruiseschepen voorbij ziet varen, en genieten kunt van de live music bij de tavernes onder het balkon. Vanaf 0.00 uur wordt het rustig in Agios.
Zonder auto kun je je in Agios prima vermaken: uit eten, winkelen, zwemmen, excursies of gewoon tot rust komen.
Wanneer je toch een auto huurt (je kunt parkeren bij het appartement) is Agios een prima startpunt voor dagtrips naar het noorden (Heraklion en Knossos), oosten (Sitai en Vai), zuiden (Ierapetra aan de Libische Zee), westen (Lasithi plateau).
Iedere week wordt het appartement schoongemaakt, ook als je langer dan 1 week blijft. Handdoeken en beddengoed wordt dan ook vervangen. Veel bagage hoeft niet meegenomen te worden: de aanwezige wasmachine zorgt voor schone kleding.
Dus, waar wacht je nog op? Kijk wanneer dit appartement nog vrij is en boek je reis!

WHAT A VIEW!!

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment almost has it all. It is ideally situated for people who don't want to hire a car, being within very easy reach of two beaches (one sandy and one shingly), good restaurants and bars. It is also also within easy reach of the centre of Agios (a couple of minutes walk) but is away from the nosier bar areas.
It has every facility within the apartment that you would need, other than a dishwasher, but as it's really only for 2 people this isn't a major problem.
Just about all the furniture and equipment is from IKEA and makes the apartment very modern looking. It has been decorated simply but to a very high standard.
The owner, Joop, was extremely helpful during our stay and gave us good advice on local restaurants, places to visit and arranged car hire for us for the last few days of our stay. He also gave us a lift from the airport when we arrived although this was because he was arriving back in Crete at more or less the same time as us - it's not part of the normal service but indicates just how helpful he was!
If there was one small drawback it was the lack of air conditioning or some sort of air circulation system (a ceiling fan in the bedroom?) which may be a problem in the high season, although the constant breeze on the island allowed us to keep the apartment cool enough to be comfortable.
The view from the apartment is stunning and sitting on the settee in the living area and looking out through the front doors, you could imagine being on board a ship!
All in all, we would highly recommend this property for 2 persons, although it will sleep 4 by converting the settee to a bed.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for writing a review! Now we got one in German (sorry Swiss) and one in English (sorry Welch). This helps a lot for future guests so they know what to expect. Due to these remarks we bought two towers, one for the bedroom and one for the living room which produces cold air. We will see how the Belgian people who are in now react to this improvement. We also had some requests from Dubai about air circulation, so we will inform them about this solution.

Although people who come from Western Europe still consider the Greek food to be cheap, we know that we should divide the restaurants in those that are there especially for tourists and those that are visited mainly by Greek people. These are the places to be! It gives you the feeling learning to know the people and the country and you will also be surprised by the service and sincere friendliness of the Greek. By the way the food is remarkably good and healthy and even if you have to be careful not eating too much there is still a lot of choice within your diet.

We got also very positive feedback about Almira beach which is just outside Agios. From the apartment it is a 10 minutes drive and we heard stories like Caribbean white beaches with spectacular views and very nice trendy bars with young friendly staff. This is the beach where a sweet water river comes into the sea. Local people often go to the so called river beach.
This sweet water river is extremely cold and it meets the warm sea, amazing.

Thanks again and hope to see you soon again!

Agios Nikolaos, capital of the Prefecture of Lasithi, is one of the most highly developed tourist towns in Greece.

It lays along the west of the Mirabello bay. The main road access of the island passes right outside the city limits, connecting it with Iraklion (66 km) to the west, Sitia to the east (70 km) and Ierapetra to the south (36 km).

Agios Nikolaos is the administrative, communications, cultural and commercial center of the Prefecture, with approximately 8500 inhabitants.

The climate in the area is mild with extremely low humidity. It is an ideal place to relax and recover one's energy.

The sea in Agios Nikolaos is superb and the surrounding area of the city is noted for its sandy beaches and beautiful bays. The landmark of the city is a small lake, known as 'Voulismeni' that is located in the center of the city, at the foot of the cliffs. Its shape is circular with a diameter of 137 m.

Other Activities: submarine excursions, historical sites, SPINALONGA, set of to NISI
