Newly built studio in the area of Karteros, very close to Heraklion airport, with wonderful view of mountain and Sea , in a peaceful environment, inside an olive grove, in walking distance from the beach and close to the Airport.
It is ideal to explore the island and relax.

The space

Spacious and furnished with IKEA products. We have put every effort to use quality materials and all are quality appliances that we would use for our home. Our intention to make you feel comfortable. Also Please note that our house is one of the few accurately located in the map in the area. So what you see is exactly what you get.

Guest access

Very easy and as close as it gets to the airport, without the noise though...Beach is close (10-15 minutes walk), shops and restaurants also in the same distance. Bus route to Heraklion twice a day passing in front of the apartments. Ideally located to use also the national road to/from Chania and Lasithi (Elounda-Agios Nikolaos). Best option to enjoy the area to the maximum is to have a car, next best choice is a bike, which we can arrange a rental for you for a premium price.

Interaction with guests

We have a rule to leave you rest and in your peace. However we can offer extras to our guests for a small fee, like the bike rental you might need, or we can arrange you for car rental from an agent we work with.

We stayed for one night. Great value for the money. Secluded but close to the airport and town by car...and also very close to the mountains, on which slope the house is situated.

This apartment is beautiful! Very nice host who is easy to communicate with- However, I would not recommended staying here unless you have a car. It was in the middle of nowhere. Our taxi driver had to call our host and even then he could not find the apartment and just the taxi from the airport alone cost us 20 euros. It is very far from everything.

Great spot if you want a place a little off the city. You pretty much need a car I would say but with a car grocery store is 5 min. Highway is 5 min. Not bad at all! The house itself was great. Everything you need is there we really enjoyed our stay!

Thank you for your kind words. We need your support to continue in difficult times. We are working to solve the issue as our guests to find the house more easy (with numbers more lights etc). The quietness is because is a rural area and you can relax away from the tourist traps, enjoy the sea. Better with a car I agree. Hope to see you again soon!

It is realy not a good experience. The studio is far from the city centre and far from bus stations. They have two studios in one yard and the studios are very similar. Alex told me he will not in the studio and will leave the key on the door. When we arrived, we went into a wrong room then stayed in that wrong room for a few minutes and used the toilet and bed. Few minutes later, we found that we went into a wrong room, then we changed into another one. Except the toilet and the bed we did not use anyother thing of the wrong room. But the landlord asked us to pay for that room or will cancel our another booking. Because we really don't like them, we agreed to cancel another nooking but we have payed for it.
