The day we arrived we met in Rethymno with the owner Andreas and went together to the house. Andrew was very friendly and above all on time. Arrived at the apartment we were warmly welcomed by his sister in law and his mother, which, together with his brother run the Taverna Androulidakis, which is under the apartment. On arrival he handed us two filled bags with a few things for breakfast. The sister in law brought us even eggs from their own chickens. The apartment is bright and friendly and everything makes an impression of quality and to our delight, everything was very clean. Two balconies offer plenty of space to enjoy the balmy evenings. Dinner has been going on in both the tavern and on the road. While it was noisy, but not unpleasant. The location outside Rethymno turned out to be a great way to explore the island from here. In a few minutes you are on the highway to go to Heraklion or Chania, but the south beaches are so easy to reach. A rental car is a must here. On the last evening Andreas gave us a little present and ever was his whole family thoroughly hospitable.
