We were greeted on arrival by Manolis who provided very good customer service, pointing out local facilities and areas of interest. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. There were plenty of good quality towels and bedding provided for our stay. A large terrace that receives the sun all day runs across the width of the apartment however wooden shutters can be closed to keep the apartment cool. A small front patio provided a shaded seating area throughout our stay. The cabin bunks in the lounge are full single bed size and there is a washing machine beside the fridge which is not shown in the photos above. The resort is quiet but there are many tavernas / restaurants / bars. The nearest beach is only a few minutes from the apartment, there are sheltered bathing areas and a footpath runs along the sea front connecting the beaches. There is a very reliable bus route which runs from Heraklion all the way along the coast to Malia and beyond. The bus stop is about 100 metres from the apartment. The fare to Heraklion is 2 euro each way and the bus station is located in the tourist area by the port. Lyn W.

We thought this would be most likely our last holiday for a while with our kids. We could not have wished for more! The owners of the villas are lovely people and made us feel so welcome. The villas are so stylish and authentic, with comfy beds, Egyptian cotton sheets. The location was perfect, with a lovely pool. If you are looking for a tranquil holiday and wish to unwind, then this is the place for you. We can not thank you enough for your genuine hospitality and kindness. Gaby and Mano, thank you so much.......we loved the friendliness of the locals in the Tavernas in Old Hersonissos, which is a special place and just a little walk from the villas......thank you so much, it was perfect....we will be back!
