                                                              This is a great apartment. Ellen has created a home from home. Very well equipped kitchen and a homely feel created overall. The balcony overlooking the beach gets the sun from dawn until around 11ish but you can also catch it in the smaller rear patio area around lunchtime. We always had a breeze coming into the apartment although it was not terribly hot outside. Great view across the bay to the mountains plus the marine traffic coming in and out of the harbour and marina. A second sandy beach is around the corner. However if the breeze is strong, sand gets blown everywhere. The local beach beside the apartment is not so sandy so is better in breezy conditions. Hire of sun loungers and umbrella is €7. Ellen was a great host - she made arrangements for us to be met near apartment when we arrived, provided a welcome pack in the apartment and took us back to the bus station on the day we left. We would certainly be keen to return next year.

                                                              Villa Olga in Crete is a very reccomended place to stay for the vacation for both couples and families with kids. We stayed in Gerani Villa for 1,5 month. We enjoyed it greatly. Olga and all memebers of her family are very very helpful. They run brilliant family business and we became warm friends after this stay. The Villa is spacious, terraca is great! Beatiful beaches are all around. If you want to spend your holidays in Crete, please, choose this location and you will be more than satisfied. Bets regards, Lisa and Kosta and our kids Eva and Marikula

                                                              We were fortunate to stay at this lovely condo for almost 2 months. The location is perfect with it's sea views, a 10 minute walk to the lake and the city center and a 2 minute walk to the street market. The location is wonderful because as you get closer to the city center, the noisier it gets. This is perfect with a quiet area, lovely views and well equipped condo. The condo had everything you need. Boris even added English speaking channels to the TV before we arrived. He is a pleasure to work with. Sasha, the property manager is also wonderful. Search no further, stay here and you will have a wonderful time!!!
