About the property

Modern Apartments, 2 bedrooms, kitchen / living room, bathroom / toilet, large balconies overlooking the sea

Have you always dreamed of living close to the sea? Wake up to your bed nothing but the wide horizon and the iridescent shades of blue of the sea. In the distance the fine silver lining, where sea and sky meet, pierced by two pyramid-shaped islets Paximadi -Zwieback, so called because they are so dry.

It is up to you whether before or after breakfast, walking a few steps away from the sea, for swimming.

No dress code, it will contact you as soon afford maximum of conservationists carefully circumscribed and deeply hidden in the sand oviposition of Carrettaschildkröte society.

Whatever you've spent the day, sporty, lazy, relishing or cultural evening awaits you on your border directly to the bedrooms, large balcony sunset. Thereafter, a magnificent starry sky and shimmering in the Libyan sea moon.

And what is more relaxing than the sound of the sea, which will accompany you in your apartment, day and night: Once calm as a pool once wild and frantic when the Meltemi whipped the water and the waves breaking on the beach.

Newly created with Swiss quality standards apartment building.

The taste, quality and environmentally friendly materials in interior design, such as a good insulation, sound insulation and energy glass guarantee your privacy and comfort.

Outstanding beach apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, modern apartment with fabulous views straight out to sea. It was spotlessly clean and exceptionally well equipped with excellent storage in every room. Great air conditioning which was much appreciated! The beach is lovely and was quiet when we were there at the end of June. Kalamaki is a pleasant, quiet little resort with interesting historic sites to visit nearby like Phaistos and Gortys. Don't miss the amazing cliff caves at Matala!

Special thanks to the apartment's owners who were very kind and welcoming. We had a lovely holiday and can't recommend this apartment highly enough.

Beautiful location/view and amazing building

  • 5 of 5

With 16 and 10 year old children to entertain we were looking for a family beach holiday in Crete and on the Internet we stumbled across Kalamaki Apartments in the village of Kalamaki southern Crete and it turned out to be a superb find. The pictures of the apartments looked amazing but the reality was much better than photos can show.

The owners of the apartments, Renata and Michaelis, stayed up to 1am to welcome us from our late flight and thoughtfully left some wine and cold beer in the fridge which was really appreciated! The occupy the top floor of the building which is great as they were always available if we had any questions about the apartment or local area but they left us to ourselves otherwise.

The two bedroom apartment was immaculately finished and perfectly clean. It was built to the highest standard with top quality fittings and fixtures including very effective underfloor cooling and electric shutters that can be closed to keep the sun out and rooms cool at when needed or at night. The view from inside the apartment is amazing with an uninterrupted view of the sea from most rooms through full width sliding glass doors and glass walled balconies. No need to stand on the balcony to look at the sea. The apartment had everything we needed including coffee maker, washing machine and dishwasher and the wifi kept everyone happy too!

The apartment is directly in front of the quieter end of Kalamaki beach, slightly raised, with just a small quiet track between it and the beach. Within sight of the apartment is a small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. As with all the beach front restaurants near by they provide thatched style beach umbrellas and reclining beach chairs available to use for free. I am sure they appreciate it if you buy the occasional drink or snack though.

The beach is sandy and clean with plenty of space and rarely busy. We enjoyed snorkelling near the waters edge and found several types of fish. At every place you leave the beach you will find a simple shower provided to wash the sand off as you need it. Brilliant.

Kalamaki itself is, for us, the perfect size and level of development. It is small enough to feel authentic with friendly locals and enough restaurants and small shops to provide all you need (small supermarket, bakery, souvenirs, beach stuff) but not over developed. Overall the best apartment and holiday location we have stayed at in Europe. We will be back!

Super schöne Ferienwohnung, direkt am Meer mit schönstem Sonnenuntergang

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Woche in Kalamaki und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön, es fehlt wirklich an nichts und wir fühlten uns sofort wie zuhause. Es sind nur wenige Schritte bis zum Meer und es hat auch sehr gute und schöne Tavernen die man gut zu Fuss erreichen kann. Man musste am Abend nicht immer das Auto benützen, das schätzten wir sehr. Auch Renata und Michalis waren sehr liebe und angenehme Gastgeber, sie waren immer für einen "Schwatz" bereit, es war sehr interressant vieles über Land und Leute und über die Gegend rund um Kalamaki zu erfahren. Da reicht natürlich eine Woche nicht und es gäbe noch so vieles zu erkunden. Das heisst -wir kommen auf jedenfall wieder- und freuen uns jetzt schon auf den nächsten Aufenthalt in Kalamaki bei Renata und Michalis. Nochmals herzlichen Dank und Liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz.

Brigitte und Walter

Traumurlaub in Traumwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Eine Woche Urlaub ohne Abstriche. Renata und Michalis sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Unser luxuriöses Appartment war mit viel Liebe eingerichtet und die Ausstattung ließ keine Wünsche offen. Was gibt es Schöneres als mit dem Meeresrauschen einzuschlafen und mit einem zusätzlichen Traumblick morgens wieder aufzuwachen. Wir kommen wieder :-)

Séjour réussi ! La location est impeccable. L’appartement est sobre et fonctionnelle. Il est suréquipé, tout est neuf et propre. Du liquide vaisselle aux capsules pour la machine, rien ne manque. La vue est splendide, direct sur le coucher du soleil. L’accueil est adorable, bouteille d’eau et du vin dans le frigo en cadeau de bienvenue, service de réservation de taxi compris. Nous sommes arrivé tard (après 21h), le chauffeur de taxi recommandé et réservé par Renata nous attendait à l’aéroport et nous a amenés jusqu’à devant la porte.

Le lieu est magnifique, une longue plage, l’eau chaude et cristalline. Mon fils de 10 ans a passé des heures dans l’eau à inventorier les petits poissons.

Le village est minuscule, mais il y a assez des restaurants et bars, éloignées de quelques mètres, accessibles même par une marche pied nus sur le sable. Nous n’avions pas de voiture de location, mais nous avons trouvé tout ce qu’il faut sur place. Ce n’est de loin pas la côte d’azur, donc pas de bling bling ni de foules, ni de shopping. Les gens sont aimables partout. Il faut aimer la tranquillité et l’authenticité pour aimer Kalamaki. Nous, nous avons été conquis !!
