Looking for a clean apartment with privacy, immediate access to the beach, a beautiful garden to hang out, all basic facilities (ac, wc, wifi, kitchen), a pleasant 15min walk from city centre and a host with a smile and eager to help? Apt1 it is!

The space

A very comfortable apartment. On the inside you will find a clean, well organized and really decent place to stay. A kitchen room with fridge is available. In addition the apartment features a bathroom with shower, tv and free wifi. The apartment is equipped with two single beds. As previously mentioned Apt1 is a street side apartment which means you will be getting some street noise inside the apartment, depending on how light you sleep it could be a bit annoying if you plan on staying for a long period. I could provide earplugs free of charge of course if needed and asked. If you are a light sleeper I would highly recommend you book a seafront apartment.

Apartment number 1 is located on the street side of the building but from the inside there is direct access to the garden level where you may relax and enjoy further.

The feelings on having your breakfast in the garden watching the sun rise above the fortezza is a picture you will never forget.

The apartment is very clean, a perfect choice for your stay. In addition we do offer cleaning service every 2 or 3 days, free of charge!.

Mamangakis Apartments are about one kilometer away the city center but it's a beautiful walk or ride with your bicycle, taking advantage of the new bicycle route on the sidewalks of the town. Within a range of 100-150m you will find parking, the best restaurants in town (also right on the sea), souvlaki place, courier service and internet cafe for your breakfast and other needs.

There is a bus stop right outside of our apartments that takes you to the university and another bus stop across the street that takes you to the city center.

Mamangakis Apartments is a family business and we invest on customer satisfaction.

Feel free to contact us for more information you might need!

Guest access

Apt1 has its own kitchen with fridge, its own WC with shower, a small balcony on street side. The garden is available for all our guests and you may feel free to enjoy your meal or reading a book at your convenience. From the garden you step right on the beach! You do not have to walk outside the building or cross busy streets. Even though Apt1 is an apartment with street view you get direct access to the garden and beach from within the building.

Interaction with guests

As a host i am always willing to help and welcome my guests. Most of the times this is how it goes. But due to family affairs or business matters I am not always present at the apartments. However my mother who is living in the same building is also willing to help at all times. In addition airbnb messaging service is something that i follow almost 24hr so contacting me is easy. If you read reviews from my guests you will understand how much i value my guests' presence at my place.

Other things to note

Well in Rethymno you will be able to do quite a few things... apart from eating and shopping...
a. you may relax and enjoy the scenery from our garden or your apartment balcony... the view is amazing.
b. go for walks or running around the fortezza castle
c. there are many bars open for a nice night life experience
d. you may have fun on sea sports on the city long beach (parasailing, jet skis etc at Popeye or Ikarus sea sports, Scuba at Evelin Diving)
e. rent a bicycle or motorbike and explore the countryside... within 30min ride you will be in a beautiful village like Argyroupoli
f. rent a car and explore more countryside or the south part of the island which is rich with super amazing beautiful beaches and sceneries.
g. have a tattoo... many tattoo artists around.
h. go on a safari trip ... with an off road jeep or atv
i. get on the pirate ship for a nice cruise
j. arrange a hike to Samaria gorge... bus picks you up from the apartment
k. visit the water parks in Chania or Heraklio
l. visit Knossos, archaeological monument in Heraklio... bus picks you up from the apartment
m. have a day trip to Santorini (Tuesdays and Saturdays only i think)
n. get on the red bus for a city tour and view the city from the bus roof...
that's all i can think out of my head right now... you could always visit a travel agent for more attractive activities.

We had a pleasant time at Costa's place, he was so welcoming and helpful and gave us very good advices about the city. The rooms are small but practical and there was a beautiful garden with sea view perfect for the breakfast.

Costa was great and friendly, the place was nice. The road was too noisy though. And that's important. Get a room facing the sea!

Response from Costa:
Thanks for your review Hazel, just need to make something clear about your comments. Apt1 is not a seafront apartment. This was something I made it totally clear with you and on all my guest requests, on my first messages and description and you agreed that it was not a problem for you. All my apartments are all on the seaside but my most affordable apartments such as Apt1 and Apt5 are on the street side of the building. However all my apartments, have direct access to the garden from within the premises and from the garden you are right on the sea. The garden is quite large and it is open to all my guests. You could use the tables and the umbrellas to relax, enjoy your drinks or meals all day long. Choosing the sea front apartments of course is wise and more comfortable but it would be nice if you had stated that Apt1 was a very affordable choice as well. Again thank you and hope we meet again!

We really enjoyed our stay here! It was right at the beach and had a beautiful garden overlooking the water where we had our breakfast. The welcome couldn't have been more friendly and we had the most pleasant experience there. The apartment is a little walk from town but the neighboring restaurant is really great for a dinner at the waterfront.

We were welcomed with homemade cookies by Costa's mother - Maria. She's so nice lady! They both are really nice & helpful. The apartment 1 looks like on the photos. The AC which is at room is really useful. The garden and beach are really nice. The apartment is about 20 minutes walking distance to the bus station, so if you want to rest it's perfect. We would recommend this place :) Thank you Costa & Maria! :)
