He explained everything and arranged an extra bed for our baby. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable, equipped with all things we needed. The terrace is fantastic; it is located on the roof upstairs - we didn't expect this with our 2 kids, but no real problem. Surrounding is nice and friendly, too. Panos, many thanks again and good luck for the olive harvest. Hopefully we see you again next year!

There is a supermarket directly opposite the house, which is very welcome when you need basic supplies. The house is well laid out to take advantage of the sea views. The bedrooms are on the ground floor with 2 balconies off the main one, which we only used for laundry as there was another lovely balcony off the living area on the top floor. The house is very well equipped, clean and modern. We didn't hire a car as we prefer to walk from our accommodation or use local transport which we found very easy. The bus stop to Chania is right next to the house. The beach is literally 1 minute’s walk away. The area is beautiful, we really enjoyed our walks which take in stunning views and lovely beaches. The local restaurants offer really good food and friendly service. The only thought we had was that in high season the upstairs balcony would overlook other houses balconies but as we were there at the end of the season we didn’t have any near neighbours. Christina was very friendly and accommodating and any arrangements were very efficiently dealt with.
