This private studio-house is fully equipped and is situated in a very nice and quiet area of Heraklion within 15-20 minutes from the city centre with a bus.You can also enjoy an outside veranda and see the panoramic view that it has to offer in area.
The studio accomodates comfortably 2 people. It is unique because the outside areas of the house are beautiful and offer a fantastic view to the valley above Heraklion that spreads along the house.
The guests have access to the outside areas, verandas and patios that the property has. The view from the verandas is fantastic!!!
Interaction with Guests
We will be happy to interact with you and share some time together if you like. We are present while you stay since our house is very near to the studio.
The neighborhood has everything into walking distance, a pharmacy, groceries stores, super markets, kiosks, taverns. The Minoan Palace of Knossos is also very near to the house, about 10 minutes driving. You shouldnt miss it.
Parking is included in the property if you rent a car. Alternatively you can use the bus which takes you to the city centre in about 20 minutes. The bus stop is only 50 metres from the house entrance.
We expect guests to behave while their stay in the studio and respect the outside shared areas of the house.
Michael and his family are very friendly... We're thankful for their kindness.
The size of the studio was for us quite good because we stayed there only two nights. For a longer staying it could be not adequate, but that it's an individual taste.
Because we were with a car, we find the location perfect in addition to the nice view from the garden.

500 words is insufficient to describe the experience my girlfriend and I had while staying at Michael's place.
From the minute we arrived at this very unique and very beautiful place to the morning our agenda forced us to regrettably move on down the road, both Michael and his parents treated us like close family.
The detached studio apartment had everything any visitor would ever want... and a beautiful view of the valley below to boot.
The time spent with the Mavrogs was unique, sincere, and much appreciated. Anyone lucky enough to follow in our footsteps to this abode will not regret it for one second.
Beautiful place to stay. A bit out of the way but perfectly fine with a rental car. Would stay here again.
Michael is a great host! He picked us up from the bus station, drove us around the neighborhood to orient us and brought us to his beautiful home where his mom had baked us cookies. The studio is very cozy, the kitchenette was perfect for our needs and the bathroom has proven to have the most reliable toilet we've had in our European travels. There were huge windows which we opened at night to let in the fresh scent of the well tended garden and the front patio had a spectacular view of the mountain and sea.
There is a bus stop nearby but we never needed to use it. Knossos and the city center are about a 45 minute walk downhill which we always enjoyed. There are plenty of grocery stores close to the studio.
Michael and his family are extremely hospitable and provided us with fresh fruit and he even took us out on our last night in town. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly come back again.
Майкл очень гостеприимный хозяин, он встретил нас в аэропорту, и в квартире были всякие вкусности - мед, оливковое масло, вино) Хочу напомнить, что жилье - это не гостиница, в этом свои плюсы и минусы, помните об этом) У него отличный папа - он нас проводил, жаль что он не понимает на английском или русском, очень мудрый человек, интересно с ним было бы поболтать без языкового барьера.
Место находится не так близко - но в этом и плюс - очень спокойно и тихо. Рядом есть супермаркет и автобусная остановка.
Вообще я бы рекомендовал останавливаться в Ираклионе, в центре, и не более чем на два дня, а то и меньше, и ехать дальше - только для того чтобы посетить музей, и раскопки рядом.)
The flat looked exactly as on the photos and the hosts were very good. Within distance of Heraklion. In addtion sometimes, some food was provided and pickup from the airport and dropoff. A good choice!
I am Michael. My home town and where i live is Heraklion, Crete, Greece, a perfect island for vacationing and having good time both in the summer and the winter.
