The space

Centrally located on the island of Crete , is a private entrance Studio Chalet with an incredible view of olive groves , the Mediterranean Sea and Dia Island . Fully equipped kitchenette , single bed , a double fold-out sofa that includes weekly linens and a fantastic large deck that looks out into the Mediterranean Sea . There is also a TV , Wi-fi and outdoor furniture ! By car or bus it's just minutes to the city center of Heraklion , beaches and airport . We can reserve a motorbike or car where we get great deals for our guests and have it right when you arrive , just let us know . Free airport or boat transfers when staying with us too . Lots of parking for the Chalet if you rent a car . You can catch the city bus that comes in front of the house twice a day , Monday thru Friday or walk down to the next village of Karteros ( 20 min.walk ) where the bus comes every 30 minutes . Only non-smokers please !

This quaint, comfortable and magical Studio Chalet is situated behind the main house and two other rentals . The house is surrounded by grape vines , fig , lemon , apricot , and pomegranate trees . Also large cacti with prickly pear fruit , geraniums , lavender , and the smell of jasmine at your doorstep .You will be able to enjoy the fruits from our garden depending on the season and we will supply you with our own fresh olive oil for cooking , a welcome bottle of our red wine , and olive oil soap for your showers too . You also will be provided with a delicious Cretan appetizer plate when you arrive and a continental breakfast . For your convenience in the village , there is a small family-run grocery store and a great coffee shop , serving drinks and small Greek specialty plates all within walking distance from the house ! There is a larger chain grocery store nearby you can get to by car too . Come and experience Crete with us :-)

I am an American who has lived on the island for 15 years now . It would be my pleasure to assist you in all your excursions and help you experience the real Crete , with all of her ancient mysteries and natural beauty . In the summer ( about 6 months long ) of course we have the pristine beaches everywhere you look , fall and winter we have the making of wine , raki ( or moonshine ) and the harvesting for olive oil through out the villages . There is a fantastic winery nearby to visit and tour called Boutari Winery that is just 4 kilometers from the house . There you will be able to taste , experience and buy some of our local wines to take back home with you too ! There is also a beautiful canyon called the Karteros Canyon just down the hill from the chalet where you can take long hikes through nature .There are over 6,000 villages , 3 ,000 caves and more than 350 beaches to explore on the island and all unique in their own special way . You will never forget Crete ♥

Pamela's place was absolutely beautiful. The pictures don't quite do the balcony justice, nor the view that it has! The bed was really comfortable, and more generally the place was lovely. Very clean upon arrival, and welcomed by a beautiful bowl of greek salad, a bottle of raki,…

We stayed at Pamela's chalet for two weeks in May. Right from the beginning, Pamela was super helpful and provided us with directions (which are important on Crete, as we learned that (Hidden by Airbnb) maps cannot be trusted there). During our stay, she took her time to give us …
