Located 5 kms from the city center of Heraclion, easily accessible by public transportation or car. We are right on the beach and many cafes, restaurants and supermarkets are available nearby. Kazantzakis Int'l Airport is12 kms away.
Our rooms are spacious and clean with a kitchenette and bathrooms. Air conditioning in all rooms. Cleaning service is once a week. If you wish, cleaning supplies are always available and towels are given upon request.
We offer free wi fi service and there are tvs in every room.
If you are travelling with small children we can provide you with a crib or protective barrier for single beds.
We do not have a pool but there is a public pool (with a kiddie pool and playground) across the street and the beach is a mere 20 meters away.
My family and I are always available to help out with any questions you may need about the area, car rental, local attractions and practical information.
We speak excellent English (we are Greek-Canadians), Greek and Italian.
If you are looking for a true Cretan experience, from advice on great tavernas to eat, clean beaches, beautiful tours of the mountains etc, we are here to help you.
The beach is very close. There is a public pool right next to us. There are a variety of beach bar/cafes right on the sand too. The bus runs every 15 minutes into Heraclion. There's a taxi stand close by as well as a wide variety of car rental places too.
Interaction with Guests
My family and I love being as helpful as possible with our guests since we understand that it's important to have someone here to give advice and aid. Many guests come to us with questions that range from a good place to eat to travel information (camp sites, day trips to Santorini, etc). I myself will be away for a few weeks this summer but I have left everything in my more than capable brother's hands.
You must be respectful of other guests and neighbors and keep noise to a minimum level after hours (night time after 12 and midday break 3-5).
Mathaios the brother of Agapi is a great host. From the beginning of our communication until the end, he was really nice with us and helped us a lot with whatever we needed .We had a great time at the apartment.
Simple accommodation,really clean, many amenities and next to Amoudara beach and a public pool.
Thanks a lot and maybe one day we will come back.
My friend and I stayed in Heraklion for two nights, and we had a fantastic time there, in no small part due to Ms. Agapi's accommodations. It was the perfect spot for us: literally steps away from the Beach (which was fantastic, since we didn't have to worry about bringing all our stuff along with us), and super close to the public bus stop, which allowed us easy access to the city centre and back. Agapi's brother Matt was an absolutely wonderful host. He gave us great recommendations for food, made sure we had all the information we needed and made sure we had fresh water to drink upon arrival, which was a very nice touch. The place was all we needed for the time we were there, was clean, and had a great wi-fi connection for connections with friends and family back home. I would definitely recommend to others!
The owner was very nice. The room was okay. The only problem we faced during our short stay the noises coming from the nearby soccer field… even around 3 o´clock in the evening.
Located in Ammodara a 20 minute bus ride from downtown Heraklion, the apartment is well located right next to a fairly decent beach and a few OK restaurants nearby. the apartment is basic but functional, the beds are comfortable and the aircon works well. It could be impoved by a few more pictures on the wall etc because the room is fairly stark. The host Agapi was not available but her brother was, though I did not really have any interaction with him apart for when i arrived. Overall this place is OK without being anything outstanding, would suit a couple with a young child seeking a no-frills break near the beach.
Мы прожили здесь целый месяц и не заметили, как он пролетел. Апартаменты расположены очень близко к морю, очень хорошо продуваются морским ветерком. Мраморный пол и светлые стены тоже дают прохладу. Для меня очень важно дышать свежим воздухом, и, к счастью, кондиционер тут не понадобился. Хозяева очень приятные, гостеприимные и отзывчивые. У нас было полное ощущение, что мы живём у наших давних знакомых или родственников.
Agapi is kind and very accommodating! The room was clean, had amenities, and mini markets and restaurants are just up the street. The view was BEAUTIFUL! Very close to the water. Bus ride from the airport/ into the heart of Heraklion was 20-25 minutes.
Agapi made sure that our stay was comfortable and went smoothly! The apartment's location was great, very close to the beach and a short bus ride from the city center.The room was large and very clean.
Agapi gave great tips for where to eat, how to get around and what attractions were best as we only had a few days in Heraklion. Whenever questions came up, Agapi would respond to her messages right away. Overall we had a great experience staying here!!!
