“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We stayed there for a week. A very hospital, nice and peaceful place. Extremely clean rooms - every day. Note that a Stavros village nearby has no activities, so rent-a-car is a must. There is no good beach in front of apartments, so better take a car to enjoy different Cretan beaches every day.

We stayed here for two years consecutively, we hope to get back there one day! The apartments are ideally placed, the atmosphere in the village is great. There are some hidden clues about the beaches we got from our kind hosts, regarding Falassarna, Elafonisi and much more. Crete is wonderful!

Immaculate and modern apartments with an amazing view from the pool. Was 5 minutes drive from the main part of Stavros so is really peaceful. The hosts are incredible, even lending us money as we'd forgotten to get some at the airport... Highly recommended..!

The owners and grown son and daughter are fabulous. They took us to buy food when we got there even let us borrow a car as it was so busy the weekend we stayed and there were no rental cars available.. They also sent over special Greek Easter treats for us as it was the Easter holiday weekend The apartment is large and well equipped, the beds very comfortable and the pool and view to the ocean fantastic. I would recommend everyone to stay here.

Room Tip: Any room you get will be fabulous. They all have outstanding views of the mountains or ocean or both...

Mrs. Catherine and Mr. Stelius Nanakis are great hosts. Really hospitable and friendly, Always ready to fill all the requests with a smile on the face.
Back in the garden they prepared delicious greek barbecue with wine a la Mr. Nanakis.
We had met there ten nationalities at the time and everywhere was really warm mood.
"Lady Cleaner" was doing her job great.
Catherine a Stelius, we thank you very much for a wonderful holiday. We will remember it for a long time.

Room Tip: Room No. 18 has got nice patio from which you can see sunset,

Well designed , spacious main room & extremely clean.
The Nanakis family are great hosts. We didn't have a car & the nearest supermarket is a mile away or so. They would drive us to the 'market' and arrange for the owner to bring us back. Also took us to and from taverna at the other end of Stavros -just because I asked the way !

Provided a superb barbeque for all the guests. More food than we could eat , loads of their own wine & raki. There only 16 apartments but I counted 10 nationalities at the barbeque !

Most people had cars & so were out , leaving loads of space at the pool. The sea is very rocky in front of the apartments so we walked along small path ( to the right facing the sea) to a small blue flag sandy beach in front of Thanasis taverna. They provide free sunbeds & umbrella. Food is good to . Otherwise you have 20 minute walk into Stavros to main beach and more tavernas

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. Designed so that all have sea view & don't overlook one another. We...

We went there for our honeymoon and we were struck by the amazing view and position of our apartment. The rooms were cozy and clean, the owner of the apartments was really kind as all his family as well. If you are looking for a REALLY quiet and relaxing place to spend your holiday, you are in the right place. I personally suggest to rent a car if you wanna visit the neighborhood because the location is quite far from the other towns.
