We stayed for a week in Michalis's apartment. We were welcomed by his wife and a few refreshments after our trip which was very nice. The apartment is even better than in the pictures, very clean and spacious, with anything you might need at your disposal. The view is also very nice, with the sea on one side and the mountains on the other. Michalis was always available on the phone when we had questions and the location is ideal if you want to visit the island, as it's right in the middle of it, but it also has a nice beach nearby if you don't feel like travelling. We'll definitely come back here when we're back in Crete. Thank you Mike!
Our family has just spent 20 days in apartment of Scaleta. It was really awesome holidays. Michalis and Julia made us feel very welcome in their house.
The apartments are located very close to the sea, to walk 8-10 minutes. Only if you are with little children may be return home on foot is difficult because little difficult to up in the heat, but if you're in the car, it is generally not a problem. Beaches are good in June were part of the wave, our vacation is not ruined. In Skaleta there are two small supermarkets where you can buy food for cooking: milk, fruit, vegetables, bread. by car or bus you can reach Rethymnon where there are large supermarkets Inca, Lidl.
The apartments are large and comfortable, they have all that is need for life: a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, vacuum cleaner, hair dryer.
Michalis is very hospitable, welcomed us with a huge bowl of cherries, gave us a huge and the most delicious in the world watermelon. Julia, his wife, brought us Cretan herbs, vegetables for salad from your own backyard and unrealistic delicious pie, which I remember to this day. It was a wonderful holidays in Crete. Thank you very much for the welcome !!!
Michael and Julie thank you for your hospitality! The apartment is very comfortable. Have all for the rest with the child. The kitchen is super!!!))) We had a very good holiday! For your assistance in everyday life thanks again!
The apartment was great, as described and shown in the pictures, very comfortable, spacious and full of everything you need. Three rooms very well furnished, two bathrooms (1 small, 1 with bath/shower), big kitchen and living room, big balcony for drying clothes or eating outside. The owner and his wife were very warm and kind. They left fresh fruit and olive oil for us and a book with suggestions for what to see and do. We felt like home.
L'appartamento era fantastico e corrispondeva esattamente alle foto e alla descrizione vista su AirBnb. Tre camere ben arredate, due bagni (uno solo con vasca), cucina e ampio soggiorno, balcone con possibilità di stendere i panni e cenare fuori. Il proprietario e la moglie sono stati veramente gentili ed accoglienti, fra l'altro, al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato verdura, frutta fresca, pasta e olio d'oliva. A disposizione per gli ospiti cartina e guida di Creta con suggerimenti sui luoghi di maggior (website hidden) siamo sentiti come a casa.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Skaleta chez Michael et Julie ! L'appartement est confortable, assez grand pour 4 personnes, très propre et fonctionnel. Idéalement situé entre Heraklion et la Canée (où sont les deux aéroports de l'île) et proche de Rethymnon, troisième ville de l'île (à une dizaine de kilomètres)! Michael et Julie sont des hôtes très attentionnés, toujours disponibles pour vous guider ou répondre a vos questions!
Excellent séjour chez Michalis !
L'appartement est vraiment magnifique et entièrement équipé. De plus, chaque chambre dispose d'un petit balcon privé se qui ajoute un petit plus. Michalis est un hôte charmant et entièrement disponible pour ses invités. La situation du logement permet également de visiter la Crète sans se presser.
Je recommande vivement ce logement.
