                                                        Great apartment in a perfect location

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The apartment is clean, modern and well equipped the location is perfect with great views and some excellent restaurants just a short walk away including one of my favourites right below our balcony. Communication with Ellen was very good and she was very responsive also when we arrived Joni was waiting for us and it was nice to be met by such a friendly and helpful person after a long journey. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would happily stay here again. Darren

                                                        Fabulous Apartment

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        What amazing accommodation in a wonderful location literally on the beach and also near the hub of Agios Nikolaus too. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and tastefully furnished. Ellen was the perfect host and very knowledgeable about recommending restaurants and unique places to visit. My husband and I have had one of the best holidays ever and will definitely return. Thank you so much.

                                                        Even better than the photos!

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The photos look pretty good. Lovely house, fabulous pool and view. But it's only when you actually stay there that you appreciate it fully. The villa is well laid out with scope for internal and external dining, shade if you want it with settees and armchairs available as well as loungers and umbrellas. A lovely heated pool. And those views! Inside far more than the minimum of furnishings and equipment, and of the highest quality too. An elegant home which you can share. The owner, Ann-Marie, is an excellent communicator, prompt, welcoming and ever willing to assist further if needed. Her directions are precise, and the welcome from Barbara and Susan, the local staff, is just what you'd wish for. Everything you need to know, and the rest available if there is something you find you need. Because the local tavernas in Istro are simple but adequate, we cooked for ourselves in the evenings most days, and didn't try the takeaway or delivery available. Of the supermarkets in Agios we found AB by far the best, and there is a very good fishmarket in the square above the marina. We hugely enjoyed Greek wines which have improved greatly in recent years. Within Crete, anything by Nostos in Chania or Lyrarakis in Heraklion will be good, but local house wines are also pleasant and cheap. Whether it's standard practice (I suspect) or just because we were first there for the season in May, but we found provisions for a day or two, with water, wine, spices and so on all there, together with toiletries and suncream if you'd forgotten. What a place!
