If you are looking to spend a holiday in the real Crete and not in an anonymous hotel , stay in the old center of Ierapetra . "Το κουρείo" ( the old barber shop ) is one of the few surviving houses from the Turkish period .

The space

If you are looking to spend a holiday in the real Crete and not in an anonymous hotel, come and stay in the old center of Ierapetra. "Kουρέας" ( the old barber house) is one of the very few surviving houses from the Turkish period and it was originally the house of the most elegant barber of the town. It has been recently tastefully and sympathetically restored and gives you a unique opportunity to stay comfortably in a real, quaint and charming house. It consists of one main room with a kitchen, table with stools and small sofa, and one separate bedroom with two single beds that can be joined into a double bed. The kitchen has an electric cooker/oven, fridge and large stone sink. The small marbled bathroom, has a sink, toilet and shower. Outside the bedroom there is a tiny patio. Close by there is a small supermarket-type shop, while many shops and taverns are within a short walking distance. The house is 2 minutes walk from the beaches and next door to the old Mosque, in one of Ierapetra's most beautiful corners. You will stay in the busy, real old town, surrounded by real people. If you do not have a car, which incidentally can be parked very close to the house, you have everything within reach, including the boat to go to Chrissi Island, one of Crete's main attractions. Public transport is efficient to move around the area and can be used to reach Ierapetra to and from the airport/port of Heraklion.

Other things to note

Our double bed is 160 x 200 cm.

My wife and I loved Ierapetra and the house was great. Oli was the perfect host and had fruit, biscuits, olive oil, and Cretan soap for us at check in. The location was really neat, only a short walk from the beach, the restaurants, and really most places in Ierapetra. The house was nice, clean, and in a very neat old neighborhood. It was hot in Ierapetra this time of year (early June) and there were some mosquitos so plan accordingly. I hope I can come back and stay again someday.

I find this review most difficult. The property we stayed at is well appointed, clean and tidy and in a reasonable location near the old harbour of Ierapetra. It is full of character as befits an old Turkish barbers shop and is described well. The host is thoughtful and picked us up from the bus station. The harbour is 2 minutes walk away as are shops and tavernas and an endless beach. My main issue is that there is no outside place to sit nor are there any windows only frosted plastic roof lights that light the interior reasonably well. I found the property claustrophobic after two days. I am an outdoor type and this place did not suit me well. Maybe I just did not read the spec properly but there it is.

Response from Oli & Toni:
I am sorry that you missed the outdoor space, but as the house was in the past a barbershop it is not in a situation to have a garden or outside space. Hope you had a good holiday in any case.

We had an amazing time staying in Oli and Toni's beautiful (very Cretan) flat. Oli was there to welcome us when we arrived and was always quick to reply to any of our queries during our stay. Oli gave us a great tip off about a small taverna around the corner, Castro's, where we could find delicious, fresh fish. Ierapetra is an interesting place with a number of beautiful beaches just on the outskirts of town. We'd highly recommend taking the time to explore Sarakinas Gorge as well. Oli and Toni were such gracious hosts, the flat was perfect for us. We had an incredible time in Crete and hope to return soon!

Antonio gave us a very warm welcome and a lot of information about the surroundings of Ierapetra. The house was lovely and we immediatley felt like being at home. It just takes a few minutes to walk to the port and the sea. There you can find a lot of restaurants. We really had a great time and can absolutly recommend this accomodation!!!

We love meeting new people and we are not shy! We are lucky to share our passion for both Crete and the Salento, where we live, with you!

In 2005 we set up a charity, 'Crete For Life' and since then we have been organizing summer camps for children in need in Crete. Through the charity we also support children regardless of their religion and nationality. Check us out!
