If you are looking for a relaxing holiday by the sea this is the perfect property. It has a large roomy kitchen/lounge/diner but also a table on one of the balconies, four bedrooms and is very well equipped (plenty of towels). From your private entrance you step into the garden, out of the gate and you are on the beach, definitely a wow! Sun loungers and an umbrella are available on the beach for your private use which is very convenient. The owners were extremely welcoming and hospitable, providing us with home cooked food on more than one occasion and inviting us to a great family BBQ.
We did not hire a car but used a local taxi firm when we wanted to visited Knossos, the archaeological museum and the Venetian Fort in Heraklion and Water city water park. There are a few bars and local restaurants along the beach which provided good reasonably priced food and a small supermarket to buy essentials. As we didn't hire a car the owners very kindly drove us to a large local supermarket so we could stock up the fridge and freezer when we arrived. They also provided us with home grown produce which was very much appreciated. The water melons were delicious!
We loved the Greek hospitality and the friendly locals and will definitely return to Crete again to see more of the island.
ευχαριστώ (thank you) George and family for making our stay so enjoyable.
