    Très joli séjour

    Nous venons de rentrer de Crète, où nous avons passé un super séjour.
    La maison est très confortable et agréable, très joliment décorée, avec tout l’équipement electro-menager nécessaire. Le jardin est clos, très joli.
    L’aeroport de Chania (2eme aeroport de Crete est à 30 minutes en voiture), la plage au bas de la maison est bien pour les enfants.
    Il y a 2 plages paradisiaques à 1h de route de la maison (la route est très jolie).

    Liebe Natalia und Janos,
    es war wunderschön in Ihrem Haus zu wohnen und Ihre Gastfreundschaft, Offenheit und Herzlichkeit zu genießen. Zu dem schönen Strand einfach in dem Badeanzug zu gehen, morgens vor dem Frühstücken baden, im schattigen Garten zu sitzen, Tischtennis zu spielen und abends ab und zu zu den köstlichen griechischen Essen eingeladen zu werden und mit euch zu plaudern, es war fantastisch. Einen herzlichen Dank von Natalija

    This is a first class property, equipped like a home, not a rental and a front row seat to the beach.

    This was our first trip to Crete and won’t be our last! We loved the location of the property and the surroundings. It’s a 40 minute walk down the beach to Chania town. The beach is just over a minor road away and very picturesque. The beach is bordered by rocks on one end and there are beautiful water pools to explore if you walk up the hill and look down over them. We visited at the beginning of April and it was beautiful and warm. The wind was strong the first day and then died down. The beach was very safe for even young children. The house is close to town but in a quiet neighborhood. Our group was composed of us two parents, our four children, ages 13 to 4 and a set of grandparents. The house is set up perfectly for being together but also having your own space. The sea view apartment has a wonderful wooden deck that has a breathtaking view of the beach and ocean. The property is large and completely surrounded by a fence and gates which keeps everyone feeling secure. There are grocery stores a short drive from the house and even a few small stores within walking distance. The beds were on the hard side. Natali is very helpful and offered to change sheets and towels during our stay. It is nice to be able to park the cars inside of the gates. Everything is in very good shape and Natali definately has a good eye for color and detail.

    We have been 2 weeks in November. It’s perfect quiet in this time in Chania. The House is direct by a wonderful beach. The Beach is sandy and flat to go in.

    All in the House is working good. The kitchen is better equipped then at home. The Chimney in the house gives warm in the not so warm evenings.

    In the low season all the Taverns around the beach are closed, but with the rental car you are in 5 min. in the town where you find all lot of restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. The owner are nice and uncomplicated.

    For us it was the perfect Holiday!

    We stayed early October 2012, the weather was perfect for us, not too hot but still very sunny and warm.

    This great property stands almost on the beautiful beach of Chrissi Akti.
    The house comprises two apartments, one is two bed and the other three bed. The garden has a lot to offer too, plenty of spaces to be in or out of the sun, there are even hammocks, a full size table tennis table and toys for children.
    We flew to Chania airport and got a taxi.
    We didn΄t need a car. There are local restaurants and supermarkets within easy walking distance. When we wanted to venture into Chania itself, we took the bus – the bus stop is only 30 seconds walk from the property. Buses are all day up to 11pm and run three times an hour. It takes about 15 minutes into Chania.
    This property would suit couples wanting a quiet holiday (like us) families or larger groups.
    The apartments are very well resourced, there is everything you would need and is personally decorated.
    The golden, sandy beach is clean, the sea is gently sloping and if you want to rent them, sun loungers and sun shades are available.
    Natali and Iannis are very helpful, friendly and welcoming and very good hosts. We would recommend this rental and plan to return.
