About the property

A charming stone house with 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom.

In the city center of Heraklion, 5 minutes walk from the archaeological museum and the market, a 10-minute drive from the sandy beaches of Amoudara and Amnisos, this carefully renovated stone house can be rented throughout the year.

The front door is in a lovely courtyard filled with plants.

All rooms are stone and keep cool in summer and warm in winter.

All amenities such as air conditioning, wi-fi and TV are installed.

The house is fully equipped for meal preparation, while many restaurants are in the center of Heraklion and the old port.

A nice place to relax and take part in the life of the city of Heraklion.

The location of the house is ideal for exploring the island using local rental cars or bus.

It has the character of Cretan tradition in its environment, allowing those who so wish to have a quiet lifestyle and relaxing away from the hectic pace of tourist resorts while being in the center of Heraklion.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment, kitchen offered all appliances in working order with a few extras- tea, coffee and some herbs and spices if you wanted to cook at home, bathroom was small but worked well for us, bed great, a large living area and a private courtyard which was fantastic to relax in after a day of exploring. Manolis was wonderful, picked us up from the bus station , pointed out a few things around town to get our bearings and his communication was very quick. Everything was within walking distance, centrally located . Would I stay here again, yes! Love it.

Excellent stay, highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in Heraklion Manolis and Evi's charming house.The location is perfect, in the center of Heraklion. Restaurants, shops, museums are within 3-5 minutes walk from the house. Manolis and Evi made us feel really welcome and warm.The house is lovely decorated and had everything we needed. The front yard is amazing and we loved having breakfast there. Communication was perfect and we even got some great restaurant tips. All in all it was one of the best places we ever stayed at and will definitely come back! I can only recommend this amazing place!!!

Beautiful quiet place in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in the center of the city, in a narrow and very quiet alley. In fact there is so little traffic that you will easily forget that you are just a 5 minute walk from the pedestrian area with all its shops, bars and restaurants - even when you sit outside. The house itself has just two stories and is well kept. Some houses in the vicinity are worn and not renovated, but there are no creeps hanging around and we never felt uneasy. Parking is a general issue in the center, but there's a guarded parking nearby for around 5 EUR per night.

The apartment is very tidy and fully equipped. There's quite a large kitchen, an a/c and even a washing machine in a separate compartment. The bathroom is small. For us it wasn't an issue at all, but for some it might be.

What we liked best is the small, private yard outside the apartment. There are flowers everywhere, a table with some chairs around it, all under a tree and some tea candle lamps around.

The owner, Manolis, is an exceptional host. We were met at the airport by him and his daugther. Later he explained us everything in the apartment, made sure that the wifi works and suggested some restaurants to visit. We followed his suggestions and liked both the Peskesi and Opus wine bar a lot. He also provided fresh fruit and a bottle of water in the fridge.

Communication was easy and Manolis usually replies very quickly, sometimes even within a few minutes.

We enjoyed our stay very much.
