Looking for a clean, seafront, quiet, private apt with jaw dropping sea view, large balcony, 2 single beds, small kitchen, ac, wc, wifi, tv, immediate access to sea, a pleasant 15min walk from city centre and a host with a smile and eager to help? Apt3 it is!

The space

Probably our best apartment. It has the perfect balcony to enjoy the whole horizon, sea view and the venetian castle of fortezza. On the inside you will find a clean, well organized and really decent place to stay. A small kitchen with fridge is available along with wc, ac, tv, free wifi and surely REAL quietness (only the sea waves...)

The feelings on having your breakfast on the balcony or in the garden watching the sun rise above the fortezza is a picture you will never forget.

The apartment is very clean, a perfect choose for your stay. In addition we do offer cleaning service every 2 or 3 days, free of charge!.

Mamangakis Apartments are about one kilometer away the city center but it's a beautiful walk or ride with your bicycle, taking advantage of the new bicycle route on the sidewalks of the town. Within a range of 100-150m you will find parking, the best restaurants in town (also right on the sea), souvlaki place, courier service and internet cafe for your breakfast and other needs.

There is a bus stop right outside of our apartments that takes you to the university and another bus stop across the street that takes you to the city center.

Mamangakis Apartments is a family business and we invest on customer satisfaction.

Feel free to contact us for more information you might need!

Guest access

Apt3 is equipped with a small kitchen with fridge, instant coffee maker, small oven, its own WC with shower, a balcony on sea side. The garden is available for all our guests and you may feel free to enjoy your meal or reading a book at your convenience. From the garden you step right on the beach! You do not have to walk outside the building or cross busy streets. You will be amazed how close you are on the sea.

Interaction with guests

As a host i am always willing to help and welcome my guests. Most of the times this is how it goes. But due to family affairs or business matters I am not always present at the apartments. However my mother who is living in the same building is also willing to help at all times. In addition airbnb messaging service is something that i follow almost 24hr so contacting me is easy. If you read reviews from my guests you will understand how much i value my guests' presence at my place.

Other things to note

Well in Rethymno you will be able to do quite a few things... apart from eating and shopping...
a. you may relax and enjoy the scenery from our garden or your apartment balcony... the view is amazing.
b. go for walks or running around the fortezza castle
c. there are many bars open for a nice night life experience
d. you may have fun on sea sports on the city long beach (parasailing, jet skis etc at Popeye or Ikarus sea sports, Scuba at Evelin Diving)
e. rent a bicycle or motorbike and explore the countryside... within 30min ride you will be in a beautiful village like Argyroupoli
f. rent a car and explore more countryside or the south part of the island which is rich with super amazing beautiful beaches and sceneries.
g. have a tattoo... many tattoo artists around.
h. go on a safari trip ... with an off road jeep or atv
i. get on the pirate ship for a nice cruise
j. arrange a hike to Samaria gorge... bus picks you up from the apartment
k. visit the water parks in Chania or Heraklio
l. visit Knossos, archaeological monument in Heraklio... bus picks you up from the apartment
m. have a day trip to Santorini (Tuesdays and Saturdays only i think)
n. get on the red bus for a city tour and view the city from the bus roof...
that's all i can think out of my head right now... you could always visit a travel agent for more attractive activities.

We stayed in apartment 3 . From our bed we could directly see and hear the beach. Even so it was very hot end of june, we could sleep with open window without air conditioner . It was wonderful. Nice town Rethymno is very closed so that the location is really perfect. Costa and his mother Maria are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Thank you !

Quiet apartment with an absolutely brilliant view - our balcony overlooked the beach. A lovely taverna serving great food is literally 100 yards away. A 20 min walk will get you into the Old Town where you walk around the 100s of tavernas & restuarants & shops which takes you into the harbour area with fantastic views. Costa was a fantastic host & nothing was too much trouble - we highly recommend a holiday here!

Costa and his mother were lovely hosts! We checked in during the middle of the night and he met us with a smile and a bag of delicious local snacks! The apartment had a fantastic view and the garden was beautiful, exactly as it was pictured! We loved our stay here! The location of the apartment was great! We used a rental car to get around the island and Rethymnon was perfectly situated near the center. The town itself was also wonderful and we loved walking around to all the different restaurants and watching the sunrise/sunset. It also wasn't as crowded as the other large cities, which we loved! It was also a great town for running in and it felt very safe to walk around as a young, foreign females. We highly recommend this apartment and Costa for a lovely stay in Crete!

From the appartement you have a lovely view at the sea but located near a very busy road. This you don,t notice once you are inside the building. Costa is a kind host willing to answer you questions and solve any problems. Room is clean service is very good.

Great spot with the continuously sound of the see, a place to have diner or to relax at the coastline. The equipment is quite rare and the room isn't as clean S we expected - a friendly and supportive host.

The apartment was small and simple but great value for the price. We loved having the balcony overlooking the sea, and enjoying time in the garden. Costa was very easy going and accommodating in communication before we arrived, and provided us with a really helpful map of places to visit in and around the area.
