Beautiful accommodation with a great view!

5 of 5
This apartment really was a lovely find in Agios Nikolaos - it was contemporary, spacious and very comfortably furnished - would highly recommend it. Manolis and Maria, the owners, were welcoming from the moment we arrived and had thoughtfully provided breakfast for the next morning as well as other items of food and drink to welcome us. The view from the balcony makes the apartment too, as it looks directly over the little beach and out to sea and is literally across the road. The walk into the centre of town from the apartment takes about 10 minutes but there are restaurants very near to the apartment too and a great diving and watersports centre (Pelagos). Manolis and Maria have thought of everything and it made our stay all the more pleasurable for it - wouldn't hesitate to book a return stay if we were in the area again.

Exceeded expectations

We arrived at the villa and were greeted by the owner, Despina, who was very welcoming. Having showed us around the villa and pool, we were then pleasantly surprised to be presented with a delicious home cooked Cretan chicken meal, cooked for us by Joanna along with a bottle of local wine to complete our meal. A wonderful beginning to our holiday. The villa was very comfortable and supplied all our needs. Joanna visited us after a couple of days and gave us some traditional Cretan cakes and wanted to check that we were happy and had all we needed. Both ladies spoke excellent English and recommended some wonderful places to visit, tavernas and beaches. Mum came with us and had the guesthouse suite downstairs, with her own front door, perfect! The pool was lovely, little bit cold as we visited end of October, but we did swim practically every day and nearby Valissimos beach was beautiful, shallow warm crystal clear water and golden sands. We had a car, arranged for us by the villa owners. We were greeted at the airport and followed the young man who greeted us from the airport to the villa door! A car was necessary for the location and would recommend bringing own dvds as there are none in the villa (blu ray player) and english speaking tv was limited to news channels. The villa was visited by maids and a pool attendant every day. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, the weather was wonderful, one rainy day in 14, and the first rain in Crete for 6 months! Defintely recommend, wish we could have stayed longer!
