We absolutely loved Malaxiana. The view overlooking the mountains is heavenly, so peaceful, and we loved falling asleep to the sound of the goat bells and the owl. The house is beautifully decorated with charm and character and we had everything we needed. Dimitris and Katerina are very friendly and helpful hosts. We hope we can visit again one day..

Arriving at Malaxiana and discovering its idyllic setting, up in the beautiful Cretan mountains, was a wonderful start to our holiday. We received the warmest welcome from Dimitris (who really does deserve an award for the friendliest and most helpful host!). We found Stavros to be a charming, quirky house absolutely full of character. Space both inside and outside is very generous. The house was also very clean and tidy with lovely decoration throughout. Dimitris' Art studio is also worth a visit; a very creative and thought provoking studio space. If you are looking for a peaceful, home from home, we would definitely advise a stay in Malaxiana.

It was a great place, located in a lovely village. Although we didn't have much time to chat with the host, they were really nice and gave us lost of suggestions.

Dimitris did everything possible to make us feel comfortable. I appreciate everything he did for us. We weren't able to rent a car and he dropped us off in downtown chania on multiple occasions. The house is perfect if you are a nature-lover. With that being said -- you definitely need to rent a car to get around.

I stayed in Stavros Guesthouse together with my daughter and we had a really wonderful time! It was very relaxing in Malaxa - away from tourism, only natural sounds: birds, goatbells, a dog barking, an owl far way... the church bell reminding us of time and occasionally a car passing by down the road below. The appartment is spacious (bigger than it looks on the pictures), clean and very nice to live in, furnished and decorated with care and originality; everything was there and if we needed something extra, we'd just ask and it was provided. Katerina and her husband Dimitris are lovely people, very friendly, caring for people, animals and environment. To us always available for questions, tips and advise to make our stay even better. There is wired internet. The tap water tastes very good so no need to buy bottled water. The appartment has a beautiful balcony/terrace with comfortable chairs, sunbeds and a great view of the White Mountains! With our rental car we explored the West of Crete, but also the middle part of the island is very well accessable from Malaxa. I will come to Malaxiana again and next time I'll bring my hiking shoes to do some of the numerous and diverse hiking trails in the West of Crete...
