If you are looking for a holiday away from noises and crowds, fully immersed in the unspoiled natural beauty of Crete but within walking distance from the sea, then Kaki Skala could be for you! Situated in a unique position, inside a protected natural park, the studio is situated on the ground floor of our house, enjoying a separate entrance and direct views over the pines and olive trees that surrounds it.
The studio is newly built and decorated with simple but elegant and comfortable furniture, it has also a separate sleeping area and beautiful marbled shower room. WiFi connection is offered free of charge. There is a fan for the very hot days and central heating for the cold of winter months. A number of wonderful walks start on your door steps. The pebbled beach of Avra is 10 - 15 minutes walk away or a very short drive. There you will find a swimming pool and a taverna with great local cretan food. Many other beaches are also very close by.
Staying at Oli & Toni's place was like visiting an old friend - so welcome we were at this house :-) Olimpia is a wonderful host, so warm, heartful and thoughtful. It is a great luck that such people are offering their houses on Airbnb! And this is the main reason why we use this website.
Our flat was a part of a big house, and the whole building is just a masterpiece, built with a great taste! Every detail is well thought-through.
It won't be anything that you will lack while staying at the studio. Kitchen is well-equipped, bathroom is big and beautiful, and king-size bed. We enjoyed both the flat and the terrace. The surroundings are very special - no neighbours, just trees, mountains, birds and little frogs. Very peaceful and tranquil. Perfect for a good rest. We also made an evening walk to the waterfall and it is just gorgeous.
We had a car, so it was no problem for us to drive around, check out different beaches and tavernas. It is very nice area nearby! So I think that having a car is a very good idea, because you can see more.
And if you want to go out, just a few minutes drive there is a city where sth is always going on, day and night.
We have been to different parts of Crete, and will definitely recommend visiting the Eastern part, as it is special, and to get the spirit of these beautiful surroundings, nature and people, you should definitely stay at Oli's and Toni's. Highly recommended!
We (2 persons) totally enjoyed our stay at the peaceful & comfortable studio in Lasithi and felt directly at ease - Oli & Toni made us feel very welcome and they were very helpful! The studio is located a bit hidden, but just a short drive by car or walk down the hills to the beach as well as a 15 minutes drive from Ierapetra. Some tavernas and mini markets are nearby. If you want to explore the South East of Crete and if you like to have nature around you (without being far away from the town;-), we can definitely recommend this accomodation!
Dear Christina and Philippe, thank you for your great review and kind words. We very much enjoyed meeting you and who knows, perhaps next time it will be in Cologne-Aachen! We are very glad you enjoyed your time in Crete, we love this island! kindest regards from us
We had are a really great stay in Crete. The studio is situated in beautiful nature and in walking distance to the beach. You´ll find peace and tranquility but your hosts also know an excellent variety of tavernas nearby. We had the perfect vacation with a mix of sun, relaxation and some smooth raki.
We try to come back as soon as possible!
Thank you Oli and Toni. We had such a wonderful time at your beautiful place. the Appartment was so tidy and neat, that we thought we are the first people that stayed here. but not at all. it's just perfectly maintained. we found everything we needed to be comfortable and way more than that. The interior = nicely selected furniture , the house = beautifully set away from everything but still close enough to walk to the beach or dine out at one of the great taverns close by.
sooo quiet and peacefull, the surrounding nature invited us to spend lots of time walking through the valley, to the waterfall, up the mountains, talking, enjoying and contemplating how beautiful life is. you see, I can't stop raving of that place. but what made our stay really that special is the extraordinary hospitality of you Toni and Oli. so welcoming and inviting, always an open door, and time for a chat or dinner, or tips, but all the freedom and privacy one wants. simply wonderful.
highly recommended!! We'll be back Jörg and Gaby
What can we say? – everything was perfect!: The most stylish house and an impeccable appartment to make you feel at home, very clean and well-equipped. We were impressed by the photos on this website - but as lovely as they look - they don't do it justice: it is even nicer in reality! The location is wonderful for exploring the less touristic and beautiful South-East coast of Crete.
Oli & Toni were incredible hosts, a very warm-hearted, welcoming host couple with a great sense of humor, very eloquent & entertaining, international and of course very knowledgeable of the area giving us great tips. They made us immediately feel, as if visiting good old friends. They were very generous and it was such a pleasure to spend some time with this interesting couple!
We would return in a heartbeat and can only highly recommend this beautiful place. Thank you so much Oli & Toni
Da Oli & Toni, che tu sia giovane o meno, devi andare con la persona che ami. Per noi è stato un luogo un po' magico dove scappare dal mondo. Il vento tra gli alberi e l'assordante frinire delle cicale sono stati la colonna sonora del nostro soggiorno nella pace del delizioso, raffinato ed elegante studiò di Oli e Toni. L'azzurro pelago di Ulisse con tutte le sue onde ricamate di bianco che il Meltemi fa danzare con la musica di Zorba sono lo scenario di una vacanza senza tempo.
Oli e Toni sono irresistibilmente comunicativi e cordiali.
Creta ci è entrata nel cuore con la sua natura semplice e genuina
con la sua storia, con la sua gente, con i suoi profumi di erbe aromatiche..... va da sè che ritorneremo..... Arrivederci quindi!!
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable chez Oli et Toni. L'accueil qu'il nous ont réservé était plus que parfait !!! Ils sont SUPER, attentionnés, disponibles et nous aimerions bien revenir chez eux quand nous aurons la possibilité, et rester en contact avec eux. Nous avons partagé avec eux d'excellents moments (Soirée à discuter, sortie au restaurant) vraiment très très bien. Le logement est aussi confortable, et suffisamment équipé pour un séjour à 2.
