Maria was not avaiable in person as she had to leave for Vienna on work. She wea excellent communicating over phone and email. Her flat looks more spacious than the photographs on your site. Tastefully done up, it was a pleasure staying at her flat
The apartment is very beautiful as in photos. But only the living room & kitchen. The room is just a work in progress. It has a patch of blue paint in middle of the wall as someone tested color (how it looks). That is why you can see that only 2 photos are of room (in specific angle) from 14 total photos.
Functionality wise the apartment is abandoned. Like many previous reviewers wrote I also never got to meet Maria. She had "urgent work" and she had to "leave for Athens".
How abandoned this apartment is can be seen by the FACT THAT there is NO TOILET PAPER. You pay 80€ a night and are denied of toilet paper. The AC in the living room does not work. It was a hot day when we arrived and apartment was very hot. She told us to start AC in room and open doors. She also told that AC guy will fix the next day which he never came.
Further the internet did not work. I guess internet was not paid as we were able to connect to wifi modem but were not able to go on internet. She asked neighbor to give us his wifi but the signal was very poor and only came in the corner of the living room where AC dont work. So make a choice - either stay in heat with internet or without internet in room.
Further not a single TV channel was there. The TV subscription with provider "nova" also expired.
In short a beautiful apartment abandoned with no internet , no AC, no TV and no TOILET PAPER and with small layer of dust (not annoying to me but can be for others).
Readers, please believe me, i am not picky person, if you read my reviews at many sites you will learn that i am not a picky traveler, this place crossed my threshold and i felt betrayed. I wish i was given some partial refund.
First of all, we spoke in the phone several times, u never said any complains! Second I don't say anywhere that I have to be at the flat!and yes I had to leave for Athens something for I text u days earlier! Thirdly MY FLAT is not a mess! And if you read so many comments bellow you will understand that! There are three air conditions in the house if one didn't work sorry! But there are two more that are totally ok!! I have faced issues with that AC since the begging, but at is not the only one in the flat, as I said there are three!!! If there was not a toilet paper sorry it may be a mistake by the cleaning lady, that if u had told me one of the times we spoke as for example u did for the Internet (something that next day afternoon was fixed and it was an issue by the company) and I tried in the middle of the night at least to find immediately a solution I could do it for that too!!! My tv works perfectly I don't advertise nova! That's why it doesn't work!! Calling abandoned my apartment is at least crazy!! Is a pity feeling like that at my flat and your holidays but if u have problems with your booking and u talk to the owner at the phone at least inform them the same moments for your issues!!
Maria was a perfect host, nice, kind and really helpful.
She came to take us by car to the apartment, that is beautiful and is worthy of an interior designer.
The neighborhood was quite and not too far from the centre of the city: fifteen or twenty minutes of walking and you are in the heart of Heraklion.
Maria was a fabulous host! We were late because the ferry from Santorini was late, and she was completely available for us. She answered all our questions about logistics on Crete and even ordered a taxi for us to get to the airport the night before check out.
Space is beautiful! Modern and about 15 min walk to city center. Greatly recommend!
We stayed 1 night in the apartment. Everything was perfectly cleaned, and the apartment looks really nice as Maria arranged it!
We didn't have the opportunity to go to one of the best restaurant recommanded by Maria but we will try the next time! ;)
She was really helpful, friendly and let some maps of the city.
Maria was amazing. I took the overnight ferry from Athens and got to Crete at 6am and Maria picked me up to take me to the apartment - my savior.
The apartment was so cute and very close to center of town so I was able to walk all around the neighborhood and down to the water.
Would definitely recommend Maria's place to friends and family!

About the Host, Mari
I was born in Crete, I love traveling,art and history. I adore meeting new people and learning from them as many things as i can. I am a happy person, full of energy( as my friends say), I love to talk about Crete and present to others our traditions(as good food with olive oil and great wine! :) )
