Manolis was an incredibly kind and gracious host. He spent a lot of time making sure we were comfortable and offered many suggestions on things to see and do. His place is perfectly situated in Kokkini Hani. It’s stylish, spacious, safe, nicely decorated and comfortable. The veranda was a pleasant surprise. The washer was a bonus and the kitchen offers all the amenities. I highly recommend Manolis place for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. See you soon, we come back.
Dear John, thank you for the excellent stay, we are looking forward to meeting and accommodate you with pleasure!!!
The apartment is perfectly situated on the main bus route across the island so we visited the western and Eastern extremes.
There are a number of supermarkets on the doorstep and a good range of bars and tavernas within a 10 minute walk. We were made particularly welcome at To Kyma and Taverna Nikolas (thank you Eva)
The apartment itself is well appointed with plenty of space and a balcony from which you can see the sea, only about 100 metres away.
Manolis, the owner is very helpful and prompt in responding to any queries. He met us at the property even though our flight had been delayed so it was quite late. He had also arranged our transfer taxi.
Our only very minor criticism is that the shower requires a bit of updating, maybe a bracket on the wall so you don't have to hold it the whole time.
All in all this has been a great holiday and I would thoroughly recommend the property as a base.
Thank you Manolis
Great value for money, right in the heart of the action.
What an amazing holiday. An easy hop on the bus to be met 10 miinutes later by the owner at the bus stop. The quaint, well-equipped, clean apartment just a 2 minute walk from the bus stop. Perfectly adequate for us, and with a huge, sunny verandah. We were spoilt for choice when it came to restaurants right on our doorstep, a supermarket literally next door with everything we needed and the beach 2 to 3 minutes away. Our very responsive landlord, Manolis, also helped to organise a car rental for a few days so that we could experience this beautiful island. The kitchen had all you need, and the apartment had an iron, hairdryer, great wifi, extra towels and lots of little touches like fruit and wine. We loved our week and hope to be back soon. Thanks Manolis!
Thank you for the excellent stay, we are looking forward to meeting you again!!!
Clean and Convenient
Manolis met us at the bus stop and helped us to our apt. He is friendly and helpful. The property is well situated and quiet. We had to buy our own dish detergent and salt and pepper. He feels that strangers do not like to share these things - that may be his experience, but it seemed odd that he would not supply the product that would help keep the place clean. We did mention this to him. This is a minor matter, as the overall place was fine. Our visit was short, but pleasant.
Bel appartement idéalement situé
Appartement confortable, très propre, avec une grande terrasse ensoleillée et ombragée, conforme au descriptif. La situation géographique de l'appartement permet des excursions vers l'ensemble des sites à visiter (Knossos, Malia, Phaiestos, Agios Nikolaus, Rethymnon...). La plage est proche de l'appartement, ainsi que les commerces.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Eli, qui nous a bien conseillés.
L'équipement de la cuisine est correct mais basique pour ceux qui veulent cuisiner eux-mêmes.
C'est une adresse que nous recommandons à tous.
