The reviewers say it all. Kanakis apartments work for many reasons, not least due to the wonderful attention of Katerina, the owner and her staff. Where else can you have a breakfast of home-made jams, cakes and cookies and fresh fruits. Knowing that my daughter loved Dakos, she brought me each day her own tomatoes, local sheep cheese, the classic Dakos rusks and fresh Oregano. Combined with olive oil from her family company, I made the perfect Dakos for breakfast. Where else do you get this unconditional attention. Kanakis is a small apartment based hotel located on a promontory that is oriented to the sea. There are no other hotels nearby so its an exclusive location and within walking distance of two perfect swimming bays and 500 m drive to the longer surf beach. In the hills behind Kanakis are several unique small villages so this is an ideal place to explore. If you occasionally need the bustle of a tourist town, Rethymnon is a 15 min drive. We were hesitant to review the apartments as we wanted to keep it a secret but as Katerina is open 12 months of the year, I am sure it will not always be sold out for us. While every hotel and holiday is what you make it, so it is with Kanakis - if you are the right sort of traveller, you will find this a perfect location and place to enjoy your holidays, but don't expect it all to be laid out, you have to discover it yourself and make the effort...but its all there.

Room Tip: Only advice is to remember that the hotel is about 100 m from the main road connecting Chiana with R...

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.
