Great space to relax and unwind away from the crowds. Friendly hosts. Need a vehicle to get to beaches. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Amazing views, beautiful apartments, great food and company. It is everything that is stated in the listing and more. There is a market close by and the town with a beach is 20 minutes’ walk but if you are looking to see the different sites of Crete, renting a car is much easier. The bus stop is a bit far to walk on the busy highway. Saveriako gave my daughter (10 yrs) a cooking lesson which was just phenomenal. She has already decided that we must return.

Had an unforgettable week in Crete, in large part because of Saveriako's Airbnb. The location is the perfect combination of peacefully isolated and central to the island. The room was not only clean and comfortable but artfully appointed and very homey as well. Saveriako and Lydian make you feel immediately at home, they could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Saveriako's cooking will make you not want to eat anywhere else on the island, and his hospitality simply makes you not want to leave at all. Overall my experience was much more than just a stay, I can't imagine staying anywhere else on Crete!

We had a wonderful welcome and stay with Saveriako and Lydia. Saveriako is a an experienced chef and cooks with real love for the products and the people. We arrived late at night and were offered a really personal welcome.The flats are very tastefully decorated and spotless with much attention to detail and we woke to sea views and then sound of goat bells. This is a place to stay where there is real opportunity for exchange with hosts and other guests over relaxed meals and sharing and reflects my understanding of the best of what airbandb is all about. We thoroughly recommend it!

We absolutely loved our stay at Saveriako and Lydia's BnB. They have beautifully designed rustic apartments with breathtaking views. My boyfriend and I didn't have a car which was a bit of a challenge. But if your up for a bit of walking it's totally fine. Can not recommend this place enough! Also if you have the chance you must have Saveriako cook for you, super afford and the best meal of our trip. X Izzy and Ale

This place is great, very nice atmosphere, beautiful rustic setup of the apartment. It is close to the sea and walkable hills and in is in the middle of nature. I haven't met Saveriako but there was clear and timely communication and his girlfriend Lidia was extremely nice. The place has no internet which was a problem for me since i work, but the hosts were extremely accommodating and understanding to solve any issues. Thank you!

Beautiful little place situated centrally along the North coast of Crete. Great for reaching the city of Heraklion in a short time and for visiting other key historic sites. The place has a great view and all the amenities to enable you to look after yourself if you choose to not eat out all the time. Just over 3km walk/run to the beach which I enjoyed doing with Nero the beautiful dog. Saveriako was a very hospitable host and most helpful when required. This is certainly a place I hope to visit again in the future.
