I'm glad that my first experience with airbnb was with George and his family. And of course with different animals)). I live in big city so it was really exiting! If you want to feel real great Cretan hospitality you need George' house!!

George's mother was very friendly when we passed by and showed genuine hospitality. The flat itself it nice and is described as in the pictures. The location is not great if you are on foot. The farm animals are pretty loud. The beach area is not quite what was expected. For the price though the place functioned pretty well.

There are no words to describe how wonderful this family truly is. The place is exactly how it's described and also nice and quiet. Wonderful energy all around. I enjoyed spending time with the family, eating their home cooked meal's and I think having a genuine experience. Thank you so much

When you know you have to stay 4 nights.. You need to find harder the right apartment. George is SUPER nice host! From the first moment he was very friendly, caring, responsible and consistent. George gave me a lot of help with my trip and did his best to help me. The room is all you need, it's very comfortable and cosy! The location is so quiet.. a couple of minutes walk from the supermarket Grammatikakis. I would definitely recommend and visit him again, next time I come to Herkalion.

George's place is a lovely, well-stocked and clean flat with it's own private entrance, situated at the back of his parent's farm. We had a fab stay and George's parents welcomed us with open arms (and food!), ferrying us to and from the airport and to Watercity when we needed a lift. Truly sweet and hospitable hosts. Location-wise, there are more well-placed flats for those traveling without a car (as we did), and accurate local transport information was difficult to get hold of. However, these are really minor drawbacks - and partly the price you pay for staying somewhere truly local. Waking up to the sound of geese and chickens, and a host of cats lolling about on the patio, makes you feel totally 'away from it all'. The nearest beach is beautiful - and only a 5 minute cycle when you borrow the host's bikes! It's a 10 minute walk to get a bus into Heraklion, which go every hour - and from there you can travel across the island. We took a coach to Ag Nik and it would have been easy to do a cheap day trip to Chania and other towns without much fuss. Really recommend this place to anyone looking to immerse themselves in Greek/Cretean culture. You will be very well looked-after!

We didn't meet George himself but his parents, Fofo and Nikos, who are the sweetest people. Some quick info: The description provided is accurate. The place is quite and although it is near the airport you hardly hear any noise from it, planes coming and going etc. The studio is nice and the roof fan installed keeps you cool even during the hot days. The studio has everything you would find in your own home. Even weights for fitness buffs. The mattress is great for a good night sleep. If you have problems with your knees going up and down the bed might present a challenge for you. Being a farm comes with its odours, residents and noises so if you aren't used to that you might not like your stay. It is the perfect base of operations if you are planning on staying long. We felt like returning home.
