Ismini Apartments
Ranked #1 of 5 Kalyves B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 14, 2007

The Ismini Apartments were very nice. Ismini is an older woman who is very friendly and keeps beautiful gardens. The pictures on the web site are absolutely accurate -- the beach is just across the lawn. The beach right in front of the apartments is next to an outlet of cold spring water, and a very short walk around the breakwater takes you to the main beach where the water is warmer. The benefit is that the beach right in front has few people on it. The only negative to the Ismini Apartments is that they are on the Kalives town road and get some road noise -- mostly from motorcycles. It's not terrible -- I used earplugs at night and got used to it during the day. I happily recommend the Ismini Apartments.

Originally we (my wife and me) went to Crete to travel around. We looked for a convenient place to stay which will be close to tourist attractions. When we entered this wonderful house and garden we decided to spend most of our time there, and actually gave up most of our travelling plans.
As Israelis, who live just 10 minutes from the beach, it is relatively difficult to impress us with beaches, but this was
outstanding. The direct access from the appartment to the garden and from there straight to the beach is just fantastic.
But above all we found great people who made every possible effort to give us an unforgetable holiday.
We shall be back.

Staying at Ismini's apartments overlooking the Kalives sea front was one of the best holidays I have ever had. We (three adults and two kids) hired two of the self-contained apartments (one had a massive kitchen/dining room on the ground floor and double doors onto the enormous front garden) and spent our time on the beach in Kalives, going into Chania (a very attractive place to wander around) or exploring the lovely beaches nearby. Ismini is warm and welcoming and greets you with her own home-made cake and you feel that the whole experience is part of a bygone area. If you are fortunate enough to find one of the apartments free when you want it, don't hesitate - this place is a real find and kids and adults alike all loved it.
