Generally good apartment. There is big room for children with a lot of toys. The hospitality is quite good. But it is worth noting that there the wi-fi almost always didn't work, the beach in this area is very small.

Galatia and Kostas are great hosts. They organized rent-a-car for us at midnight and waited for us at the apartment. Apartment was very nice, very clean and had everything described. Kostas is very responsive to all questions that might pop-up and the guys gave us great recommendations for what to visit during our stay (thank you once again). We strongly recommended Kokkini Hani and Kostas's place to our friends if they ever plan a Crete vacation and we recommend it to everyone who search nice, quite place, perfectly positioned on Crete for both a calm and active vacation. Thank you guys once again :)

AVRA apartment is a very nice place to have your vacations, clean and near to the beach. I would highly recommend as a start point of your vacations on beautiful Crete island. The place is calm, with nice restaurants and friendly neighbors. The host organized transfer from and to the airport, so everything went easy. In addition, our hosts were very friendly and open to provide help. Taking us to the village, to beautiful tavern, we had opportunity to enjoy in nice company, traditional music and food. We would like to thank very much for all help and pleasant stay. Looking forward to meet you again.

What can I say? We had one of the best holiday in Crete and in large part thanks to Kostas and his wife. They were the perfect, (and more) awesome hosts! Their hospitality and their helpfulness towards us was something what is not so easy to find!!! Of course we loved also the house with a lot of free place around that made us feel the atmosphere of countryside and in the same time in perfect position, close to supermarkets and restaurants and 5 min walk to beach with very clean water. We could also use the bicycles which we appreciated and enjoyed so much :) I can warmly recommend this place for your holidays!!

Kostas provided us with good directions and came to meet us at the main road. The accommodation was comfortable and clean and in walking distance of the shore and a couple of cafes, ideal as a first night stop after our late arrival at the airport. We would visit again.

Nous avons passé un super séjour dans l'appartement. La localisation est parfaite si on souhaite sillonner la partie est de l'île. Kostas qui nous a attendu 1h malgré nos mésaventures à l'aeroport nous a parfaitement accueilli. C'est un hôte attentionné et chaleureux. Je recommande ce logement à tous le monde. Merci encore pour l'accueil que vous nous avez offert. Soline & Simon
