Combining history, culture, a stunning coastline, exquisite cuisine and an unbeatable landscape, Crete offers an ideal holiday destination, whatever the season. No other Greek island has such a unique combination of attractions, sights & activities together with spectacular scenery full of contrasts and surprises.
The prefecture of Chania, at the westernmost part of the island, is characterized by its great natural beauty. With endless sandy beaches, gorges, caves, endemic plants and animals, vast olive and orange groves and a combination of wild landscapes and crystal seas, it excites even the most demanding travelers.
Come and enjoy this beautiful and sunny space and get to know the true feeling of Cretan hospitality!
Guests have access to the entire apartment, including their private balcony.

Fresh linen and towels as well as a welcome basket is waiting for you upon arrival.
A map of the area is provided , a baby cot and a baby chair upon request.
Staying in Maria's "Forget me not" apartment was a pure joy from start to finish. Maria was extremely prompt and clear in all her correspondence and was able to be flexible with many things. She sends you a wonderful guide to area with all her personal picks ahead of arrival..was very helpful. This apartment is right on the coastal road slightly west of Chania. It's a residential area with a few restaurants and supermarkets and is relatively quiet. From almost every room of apartment you can observe the sea. Very light and attractively furnished with high quality furniture, linens and kitchen appliances and dishes/cutlery. Maria stocks all the necessary things one needs while on vacation but would prefer not to purchase (eg. paper towel, toilet paper, coffee, tea, sugar, spices, olive oil, dish soap, dishwasher tabs, laundry detergent., hand soap, cling wrap,trash bags etc). Upon arrival, we received a huge welcome arrangement of local honey, raki, mountain tea, wine, fresh fruit, local biscuits and sweets, and bottled water. Total bonus was the home made meal prepared by her mother that was there for us to enjoy after traveling all day. So delicious and so thoughtful!! All towels are provided (bath and beach) and are high quality. There is a ridiculous amount of closet space! I wish I had at home! There's an integrated laundry line off the back terrace that is very convenient. This house was spotlessly clean and somehow smells beautiful too, not like most typical coastal properties which can have that humid mildewy aspect all too often. It's spacious, comfortable,and ready to be enjoyed...it's really one of the best places we have ever stayed ...our family of four only rent vacation homes/apartments as opposed to hotels , so have stayed in many over the years. We have discerning tastes and fairly high expectations (I couldn't fault one thing in this apartment, which is rare for me). This place was top notch. Highly recommended. Thanks again Maria for creating a truly comfortable home to be enjoyed while you visit Crete.
The appartement was very well equipped, plenty of space and nice and clean. Great view from both appartement and balcony. Nice with access from all three bedrooms to the balcony, which we used a lot, despite some noice from the street. Unly few meters from the appartement to very good sandy beach. The owner was ever so helpful both before and during our stay. Thank you for a wonderful Holiday Maria.
We have been living with three persons in the very well equipped an beautifully decorated rooms with several comfortable balconies, mainly to the front of the sea; the stairs to the first floor and the whole floor in the big apartment (3 sleeping rooms, each with an exit to a balcony) are constructed with marble, the windows of the living-room offered beautiful views to the sea.
The owner, Maria (respectively her friend Nicole), was very helpful and she provided us with cooked meals and homemade cakes, that we were enjoying very much. - Special thanks for this!
But there was a noisy and not changeable disadvantage - the traffic in front of the apartment on an important road to Chania: We had to keep the windows close during day time. But let me say, at least we got accustomed to that noise and enjoyed the luxurious condititons staying in the apartment and having only to drive a few minutes to lovely Chania.
Thank you, Maria for those comfortable holidays nearby Chania.
We had a wonderful stay at this property - the location is perfect - beautiful beaches right across the street and restaurants / bars within a block or two. Close enough to Chania but not too close - perfect! And we can't say enough wonderful things about Maria: you gave us so many suggestions for restaurants, beaches and things to do. And your mother's cooking is amazing - way beyond anything we would have ever expected! Your home is so clean and inviting, well stocked with everything we needed. We hope to be back some day!!
We cannot believe that our 12 days are already over we just don't wanted to leave!
You have been nothing but helpful, kind and approachable throughout our stay, whether it was bringing over some of your mother's amazing traditional cooking or recommending lively local bars.
Nonetheless the house was spotless and incredibly charming with a perfect location!
So in all thankful for making our holiday ever so wonderful. Hope to see you again!

Our Family (2 kids and 2 adults) stayed in this wonderful holiday house for a week. It was very spacious and clean. There was a big TV with a nice DVD collection, also many books for reading. Kitchen included coffee machine, toaster, sandwich maker and lots more. But definitely the best was the very friendly host who gave us, already before starting our holiday, many suggestions what to do once we are there. Further she gave us lovely welcome gifts, food and wine upon arrival! Thank you so much Maria for making this a very pleasant stay for us in Crete.
