“Paradise Found!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Kanakis Apartments is a gem! Both Katerina and Kanakis made us feel like family here. Katerina even baked a wonderful apple cake for my husband's birthday while we were staying with them! We love that it is not surrounded by touristic shops, but the beautiful blue of the sea, the beaches and amazing views. The resort is kept spotless. I suggest you reserve a room with breakfast. Katerina makes a lovely Cretan breakfast buffet. Kanakis Apartments is a short drive to Rethymno and Chania or a beautiful drive to Iraklion giving ample opportunity for the bigger city life, when or if you feel the need. Rent a car; go explore the island..the villages, the culture..the people, you will not be disappointed! We found everyone to be gracious and very friendly. Go visit Malamatenia at her tabena 'My Little Garden' for incredible meals! Take the Episkipo road and make a right turn after the Tabena sign and go straight down the hill to her place. Another local find that you will add to your places you want to come back to. Book a memorable holiday with Kanakis! We wouldn't go anywhere else!

Great people that make you feel part of their family.Clean rooms, very friendly service. Traditional breakfast by the pool with greek delicacies made by Katerina, huge success with the kids.You would love to go again once you visit this place and Crete in general.The location is ideal with both Rethymno and the city of Chania not far away. Great starting point to explore the whole island.
