Crete; at last.
Loved the location and generous, homey nature of the place, well equipped kitchen, new washing machine, books, starter provisions and information. The fan didn’t work - not so good on hot nights, likewise polyester blend sheets. Couldn’t find any English language instructions for the washing machine. Nevertheless, got it going.
We didn’t mind walking, but, if you don’t like walking very far, in the heat, then a car is a must.
Sorry that I did not meet you as planned, but the hospital insisted that I had to be admitted.
I am glad you liked my cottage and hope we will meet sometime in the future.
Take care of yourself and happy walking.
We enjoyed staying here and Patricia made us very welcome and had thought of everything you might need for a perfect holiday. It's a little gem. It has lovely countryside around and near to the sea and it is central for a lot of interesting places to visit, including beautiful beaches.
Many thanks to you both - it was lovely meeting you. The biscuits were lovely but, unfortunately, all gone.
Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Cretan traditional home
This was our second stay at Mulberry Cottage,once in summer & again last Christmas.This is a great little gem of a place,far enough away from the packed tourist areas it gives a lovely little traditional Cretan cottage,there is a local Taverna a few yards away where you will be certain of warm hospitality.The local shops are about a 10/15 minute walk away & it,s a short drive to the town of Rethymno if you want some night life & the coast.Theres no swimming pool here but that's no problem & the modest price reflects this!Pat is a lovely lady who goes that extra mile for her guests & you won't be disappointed.Welcome to Crete😍
A little piece of Cretian Heaven
Not my first time to the island and this time I wanted something traditional this time round. The cottage is cute and personal and caters for everything. Spacious enough to enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of a now popular tourist resort but not too far away from civilisation. With the Cafe Neon on the door step we sampled the local hospitality as well as the tavernas providing excellent food not too far away. 10 mins away from the nearest beach by car. Superb views also. Can't wait to book up again for next year 😊�
I am so glad to know that you appreciate the cottage which I have tried to keep as original as possible (obviously they did not have a washing machine, oven, fridge etc.)
There is however a new health spa just across across the road where you can always get rid of the stress and strain of a very busy life.
Looking forward to your return visit.
13 Tage/Nächte bezahlt - nur 2 Stunden geblieben
Dieses Cottage gehört eindeutig zu den "Objekten", die man erst vor Ort und nach Besichtigung anmieten sollte. Für uns war nach kurzer Besichtigung klar: kein Ort für einen Kreta-Uraub. Noch am selben Tag fanden wir ein uns entsprechendes Appartement - in 100 km Entfernung.
Was störte: eine altbackene, muffige, mit Nippes aller Art zugestellte Einrichtung. Das Mobiliar allemal gewöhnungsbedürftig - oder eben nicht. Die Lage: nah einer viel befahrenen Straße, eingezweckt zwischen anderen Häuschen, so gehen die minimalistischen Terrassen hinter dem Haus ineinander über.
Die Enge allenthalben: beklemmend.
Diese Beschreibung ist "subjektiv", na klar. deshalb erst nach Besictigung mieten oder zumindest eine Stornierung "vor Ort" vereinbaren. Uns hat "der Spaß" doppelte Mietkosten verursacht.
Gemütlich, ruhig und gut gelegen
Mulburry Cottage hat alles, was man braucht, wenn man in dee Region Urlaub machen möchte, sogar Badehandtücher und Sonnenschirm. Die Küche ist voll ausgerüstet und lässt keonen Wunsch offen.
Wir können dieses traditionelle kretische Steinhaus nur empfehlen.
