Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the second floor apartment for five nights and we absolutely LOVED it! The owner, Ellen, couldn't have been more helpful and the apartment was immaculate with everything you'd need to have a really comfortable stay. The view from the front balcony was amazing and we sat for many hours watching the sea and the world go by! We'll definitely be returning next May.

Would also recommend the bars and restaurants around the Kitroplateia beach area where the apartment is. Far better service and value for money than those around the lake area (De Ja Vu was very good for lunch and drinks!).

All-in-all an amazing holiday! Thanks Ellen!

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this very clean, well equipped apartment in a location which couldn't be bettered. Ellen was very helpful and informative and we were extremely grateful for the lift to the bus station on our departure. The apartment is very well placed for restaurants and we used the taverna on the ground floor of the apartment several times where they were very welcoming. We would strongly recommend this property.

Gewoon perfect !

  • 5 of 5

We hebben net een super week achter de rug in dit appartement. We missen nu al ons ontbijt in de zon op het balkonnetje. Alles was gewoon perfect, te beginnen met de hartelijke begroeting door Marcel aan het "meeting point". Het appartement zelf heeft echt àlles : uiteraard de 2 balkonnetjes - voor en achter - , de gezellige inrichting, alles wat nodig is in de keuken, comfortabele bedden en zetels, voldoende verlichting om 's avonds nog wat te lezen, veel opbergruimte. Je voelt je er gewoon onmiddellijk thuis. De boodschappen die Ellen voor ons had gedaan waren heel welkom, vooral omdat we pas heel laat aankwamen. Alles is ook heel netjes en goed onderhouden. De voornaamste troef voor ons is de locatie met het adembenemend zeezicht op het voorste balkon, waar ik trouwens elke morgen de zon heb zien opgaan en de eerste zwemmers in zee zag gaan. Vlakbij vele restaurantjes, een supermarktje en andere winkels en aan het begin van de promenade naar de marina. De straat is rustig want op dat deel autovrij. Aan de andere kant, waar de Marina is - die je kan zien vanuit de keuken en het achterste balkon - hebben we steeds parking gevonden binnen de 100 meter van het appartement. Er was ook goede wifi-ontvangst.

Los van het aangenaam flaneren vooral langs de kust in Aghios Nikolaos zelf en het bezoek aan de wekelijkse markt, hebben we Spinalonga bezocht vanuit Plaka en 2 flinke wandeltochten gemaakt : de avontuurlijke Richtis Gorge in Exo Mouliana en Dead Gorge in Kato Zakros. Prachtige natuur ! Onze week was dus goed gevuld.

Ons favoriete restaurant was Maistrali, op zo'n 200 meter van het appartement.

We hebben dit verblijf intussen al aan vrienden en familie aanbevolen, "mét ster".

Ik wil Ellen bij deze nogmaals hartelijk bedanken voor alles maar last but not least een hele dikke "merci" aan Marcel voor alle hulp en goede zorgen bij aankomst en vertrek.

Topappartement & toplocatie = topvakantie!

  • 5 of 5

Inrichting appartement:

Wat een geweldig appartement en wat een geweldige vakantie! Bij aankomst was er direct een gevoel van thuiskomen, het appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien (theedoek, wasmachine, wasmiddel, afwasmiddel etc.etc.etc.). Daarnaast als klap op de vuurpijl was de koelkast al gevuld met de eerste al gehaalde!!! boodschappen. Wat een service en nog niet eerder meegemaakt. Daarnaast maakt het uitzicht op zee alles natuurlijk nog mooier. Wakker worden met een opkomende zon die je ziet vanuit de slaapkamer: adembenemend en geweldig om mee te maken!

Locatie:

Locatie is er goed. Er is een strand op ongeveer 50 meter, daarnaast is er een zandstrand op 10 minuten lopen. Verder is er een supermarkt op 50m, alsmede terrasjes en eetgelegenheden. Veel eetgelegenheden zitten bij het meer en de haven en dat is ongeveer 10 a 15 minuten lopen. Prima te doen dus.

Services

We hebben de Ellen gevraagd voor een huurauto en dit heeft zij verder voor ons geregeld, waarbij de auto afgeleverd werd bij het appartement en ook weer opgehaald. Verder werd om de 3 dagen het appartement keurig schoongemaakt + handdoeken etc. vervangen.

Kreta

Erg divers en er zijn leuke dingen te doen. Een dagje Spinalonga, een dagje naar het zuiden van het eiland, een keer naar een ander strand en 10 dagen zijn zo om! Dit alles tegen zeer schappelijke prijzen.

Al met al een echte aanrader en zeker voor herhaling vatbaar!

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.

WOULD YOU RECOMMEND TO A FRIEND?

Yes.

WOULD YOU GO BACK?

Yes.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 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.

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
