Just returned from a lovely week's holiday at these very nice apartments. Perfectly placed with everything just a short stroll away. Several small supermarkets and tavernas two minutes away. Although there is a bakery just opposite the apartments, we found one of the "ladies" there very unhelpful. We made it clear which cakes we wanted but she put a slightly different one in the box. When we advised her of this, to our dismay she said "I've put it in the box now and they are all the same so that that"!
The beach was a lovely surprise with crystal clear waters.
Our studio room had everything we needed, Although it was very nice of an evening to have a night cap sitting on the balcony after an evening meal out, unfortunately we didn't have any sun there first thing in the morning, so a bit chilly eating breakfast outside.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the owner was quietly in the background, but very helpful dealing with any requests.
Although we didn't hire a car, the bus stop is literally outside the entrance to the apartments so couldn't be more convenient. We caught the bus into Chania which is well worth a visit.
If I had a couple of little niggles they would be that the great sized swimming pool was probably the coldest one I've ever been in - freezing cold! Secondly we were woken up twice by the overzealous cleaning lady banging about at 8am!
However neither of these small and silly things would put us off returning and our only regret was we were only there for a week!
