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!
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!
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

that's all i can think out of my head right now... you could always visit a travel agent for more attractive activities.
Respect the rest of the guests by keeping the garden clean and not making lots of noise etc. Unfortunately pets are not allowed. Smoking is allowed, kind to request to smoke on the balcony and if not possible not while AC is on.
Most of the details you will be able to read a small welcome guest manual in the apartment. Make sure you read this note on the wall as it gives you enough information about getting around in your apartment with hot water, wifi password, garden use, apartment keys, doors etc…
