These apartments are extremely well presented, very clean and very well maintained. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. There is a lovely large swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds and chairs in well looked after gardens. The apartments were cleaned every couple of days during our stay.
The owner of the apartment Nectarios is a fantastic host. He is at the property in the mornings and afternoons with frappe coffee and wine and snacks for his guests and picks fruit from the trees in the garden for you. You do not need a guide book if you are staying here. Nectarios will give you a map and then throughout your stay will suggest beaches, areas of interest and fantastic tavernas. We followed all his suggestions and had a fabulous holiday. This is a lovely area of Crete with plenty to see and do.
As a family of three we cannot talk highly enough about Nectarios and his apartments. This is definitely one of the best places we have ever stayed and the care Nectarios shows to his guests is first class. We felt that Oceanides was very much like a boutique hotel and we will definitely be going back.
We thoroughly embraced the peace and quiet on offer at this house. Both
inside and out it is charming and well equipped with furniture, utensils and an outdoor kitchen. Our host Mania, living next door, is generous with her cooking expertise and wonderful food. Georgia did a superb job of meeting and guiding us there after dark, and visited us again to say farewell the evening before we had to (sadly) leave!
We enjoyed trips to Kato Zakros, walked the gorge, and viewed the Minoan ruins (and were the only people on the beach); to Vai/Bai and its palm trees a couple of occasions; and to the Toplos Monastery. The atmosphere in Sitia itself is so welcoming that we spent several days there swimming, strolling, chatting and discovering local craft workers.
We bring home sweet memories and a bit of a tan....thank you Home Away!
