“Fantastic Apartments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stayed here for 2 weeks in May 2013 and booked through Travel Republic.

These are really lovely apartments set very close to the sea and many bars and restaurants. The family who run them Kostas and Emyr are so friendly and helpful - they will help you with anything - they really do go the extra mile.

We had a studio that was spacious, spotlessly clean and had everything you need for self catering (not that we do much!). All the rooms have inland pool views and are peaceful, particulalry at night. Given the low number of guests it was disappointing that we did not get the chance to sample the barbeque/Greek Night. That said all the food we had at the onsite bar was top quality - the full breakfast was superb - hightly recommended.

We would recommend these to anyone - cannot be faulted!

One last thing you can book these direct via:

info@sunshine-crete.gr - the web site to view all their details is www.sunshine-crete.gr

My wife and I spent our wondeful honeymoon at the Sunshine apartments in Stalis back in July and we had an amazing time exploring Crete. Manos and Kostas made us feel very welcome, were very helpful with the local knowledge and the food they made for us was superb, especially the bbq on the Sunday night.. delicious! The apartment was spacious and clean and as we faced the mountain side of the apartments we had a quiet, sun trapped balcony, perfect for a evening drink. The location of the apartments is perfect for Stalis centre and the beach (just 5 minute walk down the quiet lane). We would love to go back and visit Crete again and can't think of anywhere better to stay than the Sunshine Apartments, thankyou Manos and Kostas for helping to make our honeymoon perfect, Dave and Caroline Harris.

Room Tip: Apartments with a lounge are spacious and have the extra balcony for soaking up the sun.

Our third stay at the Sunshine apartments and a great time as always. Apartment very clean and spacious for two of us. Kostas, Eimear, Manos and family are all very friendly and very helpful. The apartments are down a little lane from the bars and restaurants, a great location but nice and quiet, Thanks for a great time, Nicola and Paul,

This holiday in stalis was excellent the sunshine apartments i would reccomend to anybody because they are very clean and Kosta is a very pleasant and kind man he will help in anyway possible and his wife Eimear ia a lovely woman and very friendly you couldnt wish for a better couple. Although we didnt eat much at the apartments the food that we did have was excellent.
Stalis itself is fantastic far better than malia because you dont have the mad rush of malia and i think the best time to go is September/October because it is very peaceful. We have already book again at the sunshine apartments for next year because they get booked up early.
Thanks Kosta and Eimear love Helen and Ian

If you want to relax and enjoy Greece, especially Crete, at its best come to Sunshine Apartments and see for yourself, - It doesn’t get much better! The place was clean and well maintained and the staff helpful and friendly.

The rooms were great, especially the self catering facilities, so the electric hobs worked and no cold shower in the afternoon which really does make a difference.

The hotel is quiet and set back from the noise and no more than 150 – 200 meters from the centre of town with loads of seafront tavernas and bars to choose from. If you pick the right one the sun beds are free if you buy a drink. There are also supermarkets within easy walking distance

Stalis is a long strip next to the the beach with a backdrop of mountains which taper off into the distance along the coast. It’s an awesome place.

Room Tip: If you want a bit more privacy dont ask for a pool view

I am going to Crete for a few years and last time i stayed at the Sunshine Apts after recommendation. Just by the main area with all the bars , restaurants but quiet like is the middle of a desert! Clean and well equip rooms. The owners Manolis and Kostas know how to keep their customers happy and it shows by how many times each one of them has stayed there. It was the best holiday we had in Crete and a big part was due to them.

Wow. We got back from Stalis on 29th Sept having stayed at the sunshine apartments for a week. What a fabulous week we had. We hit it lucky with the weather as it was in the 80's and 90's the whole week. The apartment was great. Clean and tidy. We had a couple of small problems the first couple of days but they were sorted out very quickly with no fuss. Couldnt have asked for better hosts than Manos and Kostas. We found the people so friendly and the beach just a short walk away was great. Because the apartments are just off the main road, it was very quiet in the evenings, but if you wanted nightlife, there was still plenty going on just a short distance.
We will definatly be going back next year.

Room Tip: Go for the corner apartments, they have 2 balconies and catch the last sun of the day.
