We had a lovely apartment, spacious and cool (air con is great!), huge double room above living (and kids' sleeping) space. Quiet village, not at all 'touristy', and a really peaceful place to stay. We had a terrace outside the bedroom, great spot to sit in the evening and watch the sun set over Souda bay. Ground floor terrace with patio furniture, lovely spot to eat (although apartment cooking facilities are very limited - don't stay here if you're the sort who loves to cook on holiday!). Clean, sheets and towels were changed about every 3 days, washing machine in communal office area. Friendly owner who responded very quickly to text messages about minor issues. Pool was larger than we expected, very clean and well maintained with plenty of loungers and umbrellas. Lovely setting, well maintained and lots of flowers around so very pretty. Excellent, good value family-run taverna right next door - some quiet music in the evening, but won't disturb (except the night we were there and they had a very noisy wedding reception until the small hours!!). Our boys (10 and 13) loved it, especially the pool. Easily reached from Crete's (one!) main road and a very easy drive to many local attractions (beaches, ancient sites, lovely city of Chania, lake Kournas - fantastic pedalos and kayaks, excellent taverna, glass making in Kokkino Xoria, lovely local villages - small folk museum in Gavalochori is worth a look). Our first time on Crete, but will definitely go back to this place!
We really enjoyed this holiday (my partner was 5 months pregnant) as we were looking for somewhere quiet to relax away from the bustle. The apartment had everything we needed with the added bonus of a pool and seating areas to the front and back. We hired a car and were able to go to many differenet beaches that are around that area and find lots of hidden restaurants and cafes.
We hope to go back next year with our new addition
