**** Some info of the near bays ***
The beautiful and calm gulf of LYGARIA in only 400m away. It is a lovely narrow stretch of sand with calm and warm crystal clear waters. Watersports, scuba diving, sea beds, super markets and fish tavernas make this spot one of the most famous in the area.
The AGIA PELAGIA sandy bay is about 2 Km away. It is protected from the north winds, and the sea is almost always calm.
AGIA PELAGIA village has developed around its shores, so that's where you'll find many of the tavernas and cafeterias. In the center of Agia Pelagia you will find a super market, tourism offices, pharmacy, an ATM, tourist and souvenir shops and the taxi stand.
There are many restaurants and tavernas featuring Cretan, Greek or international cuisine, and all have a beautiful view of the sea. As you dine in Agia Pelagia, you can also partake of the wonderful scenes around you, and snap these memories into a treasured photo album: the various shades of the rippling sea, the cute little kid building a sand castle, the old fishing boats anchored in the bay, the fishermen preparing their nets for the night's labour!
Beautiful and peaceful, non crowded neighborhood

George heeft ons zeer vriendelijk onthaald met een rondleiding, een hapje en een drankje en tips voor eetgelegenheden. Toen we pech hadden met de auto heeft hij er voor gezorgd dat er binnen het half uur iemand was om het op te lossen. Steeds behulpzaam en aanspreekbaar.
George is a marvelous Cretan host! His place is well appointed and spacious, even though on a beautiful day in Agia Pelagia you will spend your day outside, at the condo pool or at one of several beaches. Great value, and when there are questions about ANYTHING--restaurants, sites, trips, George is at the ready...
We had an amazing time at George and Claire's apartment with my friend and her 2 kids. The apartment was wonderful and even better, than we expected according to the pictures and descriptions. We really felt like at home there and that was probably one of very few places where I would love to come again. The apartment is equipped with all the things you may need during your stay. It is located in a wonderful place with a panoramic sea view from the windows. The swimming pool is big and very clean, there is also a gym, a BBQ area and generally lots of space aroung the villa with lots of flowers and trees. The location of villa itself is also great - far enought from busy areas, in a quiet place, but in a walk distance from the beach, tavernas and the sea. The beach of Lyraria was our favourite, and the tavernas of Agia Pelagia were really amazing.
George is a great host, probably the best I have met through Airbnb, he met us at the aiprort, got us many tips about our holidays, helped us to rent a car and was very wellcome and kind. By the way renting a car is highly recommended in Crete as there are so many beautiful places that you would like to see.
Thank you George so much for our great holiday!
We had a very good time with our 11 month old daughter. George was very kind and went out of his way to make sure we had a pleasant stay.
He even bought a highchair for our baby. He also showed us around the area and was happy to tell us all about the Cretan way of life.
The appartment was more than comfortable (although the bed was a bit small) and the pool was amazing!
The only downside I can think of is that the beach is quite a walk downhill (15 min). But with a car it's literally 2 min.
Thank you George
This appartment was clean and quiet. It has a nice view surrounding Agia Pelagia and the sea. George was a great host, always ready if we needed anything. We have used the laundry and the BBQ has if it was our own.
We felt relax and safe for all of our stay and we hope to come back in the future.
We spent 12 nights in late August at the 'Stylish pool side apartment' with our daughter of only 8 months old. The first days we took our time to relax and unwind, and only left the apartment for a walk down to Lygaria beach to do some grocery shopping and grab a bite to eat at some very good tavernas. While the climb back up was a steep one, we felt it was doable and some good exercise.
Every day we made use of the swimming pool at least twice, and even our daughter loved her daily swim. Since she still needs her sleep during the day, our stay wasn't all that adventurous. However, the location is a good central location for many trips, as we made a few later during our stay. Also, Crete itself is a beautiful island and well worth a drive without any particular destination.
We found George is a very helpful person who on several occasions went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as he was able to. This included providing for some facilities that came in handy with our daughter, picking us up at the airport and pointing out some of the local highlights. But beside the more practical matters, George really made a difference by being available when we were in need (which for us was a surprisingly comforting feeling in a foreign country with the responsibility over our baby girl) and also by being able to surprise us with some small but well received gestures.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay, would love to come back some day and we will think of Crete often during the upcoming Autumn in our wet & windy Holland ;-)
George met us at the "motorway" exit to help us find the place easily and was always available and helpful. It's not hard to get to but the first time can be if you're not used to finding your own way. The place has a great view and is functional. The pool is shared and you will have contact with other guest. Location is close to a couple of nice but busy beaches with plenty of small shops and local restaurants. I stayed with two young kids and we enjoyed it. Renting a car is recommended.
