About This Listing
For an unforgettable stay!! Just 10 minutes walk from the beach and the main touristic street of west Herakion. Grocery store (mini market) 10 minutes walk from Pinelopi. Clean and fully equipped kitchen, hot water and private bathroom and nice yard.
The flat is on the basement of the building where Antonia is leaving. Even if it's a basement it's really bright, however if you're taller than 1,85cm -6.5ft you need always to be careful going from room to room and on the entrance of the apartment. The apartment has one small double bed and one single bed.
The neighbourhood is really friendly with family kind environment. Ten minutes walk from the main tourist area of western Heraklion with taverns, bars, 24hour grocery store (mini market) and athletic centres (tennis/football/pool). There is also luxury resort close by where you can go for spa and thalasso-therapy or water sports. Very good traditional taverns with traditional Cretan food. You can ask me for further information.
Also 7km away from the city centre. Public transportation every 10' to the city centre-airport.
Ten minutes walk from the beach and the main street. Kiosk (24hour) with snacks and drinks 2 minutes walk from Pinelopi. Clean and fully equipped kitchen, 24h hot water and private bathroom. Nice balcony.

Gazi or sometimes Gazio(n) (Greek Γάζι(ο)), Crete is a municipality 6 km west of Heraklion, on the north coast of Crete. Since 1999, it has included the area of the former Local Authorities of Gazi (including Kalessa, merged in 1994), Ahlada, Rodia, and Fodele. Its area is 95.8 km² and its population in the 1991 census was 8133 ; it has grown rapidly since then. It borders the Municipalities of Heraklion, Kroussonas, Tylissos, and Gorgolayni, and Rethymno Prefecture, and the National Highway passes through it, along the coast.

Άμα θέλετε να περάστε ήσυχα στις διακοπές σας, να καθίστε στο διαμέρισμα της οικογένειας Μπαγκέρι. Το διαμέρισμα ήτανε πεντακάθαρο και η Αντωνία και ο Βασίλης μας πρόσφεραν διάφορα νοστιμότατα παραδοσιακά φαγητά της Κρήτης (αυτό το κουνέλι κοκκινιστό ήταν φοβερό!!) Το διαμέρισμα είναι ακριβώς 10' με τα πόδια από την παραλία. Και ο Μανώλης, ο γιος τους, πάντα είχε όλες τις ερωτήσεις όταν του έστειλα μηνύματα. Αισθάνθηκα σαν να είμουνα στο σπίτι μου! Σας ευχαριστώ τόσο πολύ για την υπέροχη φιλοξενία σας!
For those that don't read Greek I'll leave the review in English. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay by the beach, look no further than the Bageris family's flat rental. The flat was extremely clean and there were various Cretan goodies in the fridge that the owners, Antonia and Vassilis, were kind and generous to share with us. Their son, Manolis, was extremely helpful whenever I had a question to ask here on the site. Their warm hospitality really moved me as I truly felt like I was in my own house. I thank them so much for being such wonderful hosts!
We instantly felt at home on arrival at Antonia's place. We'd been in contact with her son Manolis already, but as he was in London we were looked after predominantly by Antonia.
She collected us from the bus stop and gave us a quick tour of the local restaurants and points of interest (which turned out to be very useful during our trip!)
When we got to her place, she showed us in where we found some really nice homemade foods waiting for us, as well as some fresh fruit, milk and homemade raki and honey raki (which was amazing!!)
If we ever had any issues or queries during our stay, both Manolis and Antonia were very quick to respond and extremely helpful.
The apartment is situated in an excellent location, only a 10 minute walk from the beach, but in a nice quiet and peaceful neighborhood.
On our last evening in Crete, (after asking if there was anywhere we could learn Cretean cooking) Antonia kindly offered to show us how to make one of her family recipes!! The food she produced (with a little help from us :) ) was absolutely delicious and we ate together under a picturesque sunset with a refreshing glass or two of white wine -- what more could a guest want?!
The perfect hosts and the perfect stay, we will return for sure!
Thank you and lots of love! Isaac and Louise
Antonia could not have made us feel more welcome, she treated us as if we were her family.
The accommodation was exactly as listed and was exceptionally clean and homely
Arrivé à Gazi, vous êtes reçu comme à la maison. Antonia est une hôte formidable : disponible, attentionnée, juste ce qu'il faut pour vous sentir (très) à l'aise et comme à la maison. L'appartement est situé à 10min à pied de la plage. Suivez ses conseils que e soit sur la suite de votre séjour comme sur la vie crétoise, prenez le temps de discuter avec elle de bon matin. C'était notre premier jour en Crète et elle nous avait déjà donné envie de revenir la voir. Merci !
Everything was truly perfect! Antonia went out of her way to make us feel as comfortable as possible including picking and dropping us off at the bus stop several times and giving us freshly baked food from her family. The apartment was more than spacious for two people and was extremely clean. The house is less than a 10 mins walk from the beach with several local tavernas nearby. This was a unique and memorable experience not to be missed!
Antonia and Manolis are exceptional hosts. I recommend this place without reservation. We were there for only a couple of days, but we could definitely see ourselves staying longer had we had more time. Manolis got in touch with me prior to my visit with tips and recommendations, while Antonia picked me up at the bus stop and had moussaka and other goodies waiting for us. It made the experience of visiting a new place so much more pleasant!
I had an absolutely fabulous time staying with Antonia; she wasn't joking when she said she would act as my mother away from home!
When I arrived, she picked me up from the bus stop and took me to my lovely, 4-day Cretan home. The fridge was stocked with beautiful home-grown/baked products and Antonia made herself readily available to me, should I have any questions or concerns.
She also recommended places for me to visit and made me feel very much at home. This morning, before driving me to the airport, she made me a traditional Cretan breakfast, which I shared with her and her husband; what a lovely note to leave on! For my first trip to Crete, I cannot think of anyone better to have stayed with! Many many thanks!

About the Host, Antonia & Manolis
We will be happy to accommodate you for an unforgettable stay in Ammoudara, Crete. Feel free to ask for any further details.
Hi I'm Manolis I'm the first person you will come in contact with. I'm based in London (working far from beautiful Crete)! I love travelling and meeting people from all over the world. Meeting a person from a different country-culture is like living a second life for some days.
Hi I'm Antonia, Manoli's mother. I'll be your host in Crete! I love taking care of people and helping them understand the real Greek hospitality. I'm looking forward to meeting you for an unforgettable stay!
