Other Things to Note
Crete is a big island with many beautiful places. So it is better for you, if you rent a car. Ask me for rent a car link.
Respect the property and your neighbors.
Please do not leave the air condition all day and all night working cause there is a danger of black out.
During the winter time, we provide you with heaters but you have to pay separately the electricity bill.

Il soggiorno presso lo studio è stato davvero piacevole. Maria è gentilissima e disponibile. Lo studio è pulito e curato, inoltre è collocato in una zona tranquilla con vista mare. In poco tempo si è nel cuore di Chania o in spiagge meravigliose. I consigli di Maria sono stati utilissimi per ammiare la belleza di Creta.
We spent 4 great days in Sun Rise Studios. The place is very neat, comfortable and peaceful, surrounded by lots of greenery. Maria and her family, who welcomed us with big smiles and open arms, are extremely helpful and they put enormous effort to give the guests the feeling of Greek friendliness and hospitality. They gave us lots of great recommendations about the best places in the area. Special thanks for tips on Eirini’s Tavern (we are impressed by great food and grandma’s Eirini personality) and Koukouvagia Café (the chocolate cake is unforgettable experience and one of the sweetest in our lifetimes). We are glad that we chose to stay in Maria’s place and definitely recommend it to all who wish to have a great time on Crete. It is a good starting point for exploring the whole island. Special thanks for Maria’s mum for homemade cookies and warm homelike atmosphere.
Mi novia y yo pasamos 10 días alojados en los apartamentos de Maria y la verdad es que nuestra experiencia fue genial. Cuentan con todo lo que describen en el anuncio y la localización es muy buena, aunque si quieres descubrir lugares, como a nosotros nos gusta, el coche es indispensable.
Maria se mostró muy atenta en todo momento con llamadas y correos a pesar de no encontrarse en la isla. A pesar de no estar ella tuvimos como gran anfitrión a su padre, un gran hombre que nos ayudó mucho indicándonos aquellos lugares mas secretos e interesantes de la isla.
En definitiva nuestra experiencia en el SUNRISE de Chania fue genial.
Muchas gracias María.
Wonderful stay! We were seconds away from the beach and around so many quaint towns for great food, me and my boyfriend had an amazing time. My host was great, her parents were adorable and the apartment was perfect! I would recommend this to anyone! Especially couples! We had a beautiful beach to ourselves for an entire day! It is right behind the apartment!
We loved staying here! Maria's mother greeted us when we arrived and Maria talked to us on the phone to make sure that we had everything we needed. They were both incredibly hospitable and made our stay very enjoyable. Maria's mother even baked us cookies for our arrival and brought us delicious pastries for breakfast one day. The room was comfortable and clean and the balcony had a breathtaking view of the ocean and mountains. We had an amazing time in Crete and loved staying at Sun Rise Studios!
Maria was very helpful and communicative. She wasn't able to be there during our stay but we managed a skype date before the trip and Maria told us everything we needed to know about where to go and where to eat. She pretty much planned out our 3 day stay! It was very helpful to have a local's tip! Her cousin, Kostos, met us there to check us in. He was warm and helpful. Maria's apartment was larger than it looked in the pictures. We had a direct view of the sea from our Balcony. We felt very comfortable at Maria's and found it a perfect location away from the hustle of Chania. We were able to relax every night in perfect quiet. We went to Taverne Irene according to Maria's instructions in the next town over, about 5 mins by car. It was so delicious, we went there every night afterwards. The one day we tried a different Taverne, the one by Kalathas beach, the quality was not as good and we were ripped off with the price. The only noise is from the airport, but there were no flights late at night. We would love to come back again.
Customer care and availability more than special!
The house itself it is just perfect for location, beauty and comfort
Absolutely hundred time suggested!

About the Host, Maria
The last years I live in Berlin, far away from my sunny and amazing home.
I work and study here and whenever I have free time I visit my friends and family in Crete.
I love travelling around the world and my moto is " I always look at the adventurous side of life" :o)
