“Clean, quiet, and accomodating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon... by accident. We actually made a reservation at the Village Apartments but we were so exhausted from driving over winding mountain roads, we accidentally checked in here and stayed one night. The next morning I walked out on the veranda of our apartment and saw where we were supposed to stay, which caused me some slight indigestion. We managed to extricate ourselves from the mess we made without causing too much fuss, and switched over to the Village Apartments where we originally had a reservation. The folks at AnnaView were very accommodating about the whole thing (we paid them for our stay, of course), which my wife and especially myself were thankful for.

Apartments.
Clean, tidy, plentiful amenities. Very comfortable bed, air con included and the most wonderful views we have ever experienced.
Fresh towels and bed linen.
The apartments were spotlessly clean.

Staff.
Family owned and run and this shows in a very positive way.
We booked over 12 months in advance as we were planning to get married. All communications were via email in very good English. I am ashamed to say i have no idea on where to begin in Greek and it is very humbling to communicate with such a warm and friendly family.
Upon arrival, we were met in person and found within was a welcome bottle of wine, a cold beer and a plate of biscuits and cake.
Yiannis has been an absolute diamond, even assisting with finding a local photographer for us !

Location.
The apartments are within the village of Mirthios, this is close enough to the beaches, of which there are many and good for children, snorkling and views, depending which one you use.
There is parking for hire cars at the apartments and on the adjacent road.
Mirthios has 4 Tavernas, of which we regularly used 3.
Panorama - good food, clean and fantastic food.
Vrisi is also worth a mention, can take a bit of finding and there is a steep path, but the views are amazing as is the food.
There are a couple of shops within Mirthios, but no bakery or cashpoint.
These can be found in Plakias.
Plakias does what it says on the tin. A good number of restaurants, bakeries, butcher, fishmonger and supermarkets etc.
There is a fantastic restaurant that is worth a visit - Sirocco, its on the road out of Plakias towards Souda and on the edge of Plakias.
It has a wonderful view of the bay and sunsets, plus the best food. The service is professional, it definately sets itself apart from the rest of the tavernas.

The overall location is south of Crete and whilst its approx 1hr to 1.5hrs from the airports, you gain a slower, more traditional part of Greece.
The wind was passionate but was a welcome distraction from the heat.
Souda is a good beach to visit when the wind is up and the furthest taverna was the better of the 2. The grilled sardines were outstanding.

The area was cosmopolitan, with tourists from Greece, Holland, Germany, France and only a few Brits.
No egg and chips with a pint of Stella for the breakfast brigade.

We cannot recommend these apartments enough !!

Room Tip: Contact Yiannis at the apartments via email for advice on what you are looking for, i am sure he wil...

We stayed one week in the annaview apartment; we arrived late in the evening but anna was waiting for us. The apartment is o.k. and has everything you need. Kitchen also complete. The beds are comfortable, but the two beds (normally a bank) for our kids in the living room were not so good. Everyday they clean the apartment. With four people we hadn't everyday in the morning enough warm water for a shower.
We loved the apartment and the friendly family.. We can recommend anna apartment!

Room Tip: You need a car;backery in plakias (the first you will see next to a supermarket is great!

The view has it all, one can never get tired of it, great to wake up to in the morning. At our arrival, we were welcomed by the family, who makes you feel at home very soon. Add the delicious koulourakia (orange-cinnamon cookies) made by Anna and you will have the holiday of your life. The apartments are kept very clean and are very nicely equiped. It was my fifth time in Crete and it all makes me wanting to come back soon. It is a great place to start sightseeing, walking and the beach and a lot of nice taverna's are within reach in Myrthios and Plakias. It was also great to practice my Greek with Anna and Eri. We spent 3 wholesome weeks.

My wife and I very much appreciated the vacation at AnnaView in Myrthios. We had some nice lazy days and also enjoyed walking and sightseeing. A place we very well might return to!

There are several tavernas in the village and it is not far to Plakias. This was the first time on vacation i Greece that we had a car - and we used it. It made it easier to come to good beaches and look around.

We were met by the owner´s natural kindness and service-mind. We had a fantastic view and the nature is impressing. The apartment was very clean with cleaning on a daily basis.
Everything we needed was there.

I have stayed in Anna's on several occasions and everytime I have been met with a friendly smile and homemade cakes in the fridge. The apartments are all maintained to a very high standard, are spotlessy clean and have everything you need. The views from the balconies are amazing and Mirthios has some great restaurants too. Sirocco restaurant in Plakias is a must try.

My first time in Crete and first time on holiday with my girlfriend. We wanted to stay somewhere special and I think we certainly found it here. Great apartment, well furnished, cleaned everyday, amazing views the list goes on. We were well looked after the whole time. I can certainly see why people keep coming back and I would definitely head here again. Faultless.
