We stayed here for three nights last week and cannot recommend it highly enough. Anne's hospitality was warm and friendly. Our late night arrival meant that the welcome pack (including bread, butter, eggs, beer, wine and raki!) was very welcome. The location is very tranquil and we loved our afternoon by the pool watching the birds of prey soar below...

Management response:

The stay for three nights was just not long enough to have this delightful family here. They embraced everything with great enthusiasm, were game for anything and put their all into enjoying their short visit. I was sad to see them go onto another place on the south coast as it really was too short a time.....they were a tonic...

The apartment is ideally suited to 2 people, but is also...

What an amazing review.....think I shall have to get this charming guest to rewrite my blurb on my site as my efforts to say certain things certainly do not match her skills! Indeed these guests have returned every year since 2011 and it is always a great pleasure to see them and have them stay....and we look forward very much...

We booked this property based on location and previous reviews. On arrival we were greeted by the owners and given a tour of the accommodation. Annie had stocked the fridge with enough food and drink to feed an army...beers, wine, bacon, eggs, bread, butter, fresh salads, fruits, milk, tea, coffee...you get the picture...more than your average "welcome pack". Annie &...

Management response:

We are delighted with this review, especially as it shows that people DO read the them. Also because it is warming to know that the guests liked Azure heights and felt 'at home' which is something we endeavor to do. Also, the point made about eastern Crete and it's beauty....these particular guests were charming and made a huge effort to...
