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.
To be clean and tidy!
This is what should be named: the most perfect small apartment in Crete. Unlike most other holiday apartments here you find a nice space that has been wonderful and tastefully decorated. All items seem to be collected separatly, and still they match and make a whole. Apart from all this, the apartment is highly functional and offers guests all they need. Even a little Bialetti espresso maker is available for making a perfect coffee to start your day.
The bed is large en very comfortable. For when it's hot there are two ceiling fans which we didn't use as it wasn't necessary at this time of year.
The shower is perfect and nice and warm. And as the rest of the apartment the bathroom is equipped with some special decoration that turnes it from being just a bathroom into a bathroom with style.
Antonio and Olympia are perfect hosts. Contact in advance by mail and telephone was smooth and clear. During our stay they several times informed if we needed anything ( we didn't ;-) but at the same time they respected our privacy. On top of it all, Olympia baked us a very tasteful pie to celebrate Easter. We had to stop ourselves from not eating it at once.
We had a great stay in this part of Crete, and for if we return it for sure will be at this unique spot. If you want to stay at a special place in Crete, we're it's spotless clean, silent and surrounded by nature and caring people...well, don't look any further, just stay here!
Dear Toni und Olimpia!
Thank you for this wonderful summer stay on Crete in October. Toni is a very good host: he told us a lot of Restaurants for dinner. And: thank you for the very tasteful honey! The appartment was very clean, very quiet and the garden was a very nice place to sit outside. We found some fruits and biskuits when we arrived.
Thank you very much
Immer freundlich, zuvorkommend und sehr gastfreundlich hat uns Toni bei sich aufgenommen. Wir haben die zwei Wochen im Studio sehr genossen, die Ausstattung und Sauberkeit war um Längen besser als alles andere was wir in Kreta gesehen haben. Die Lage ist fantastisch, man ist schnell am Strand oder in der Taverne in der Nähe. Vielen Dank!
There're places that make you feel ultimately relaxed and peaceful just by the way they're located and designed. The house itself can surely be included in the book of "Best small places to stay in Mediterranea" for its unique esthetical look and cosiness, designed with great taste and soul. The landscape view is breathtaking, as it's surrounded by mountains, full of olive and pine trees.. In the evenings you have a "moon live show" (and we were lucky to have a full moon show:) sitting just at your patio, and the moon moving slowly above the mountains shining brightly.. At the same time, the house is just 5 minutes by car (or 15 min of walking) from the beautiful beach, mini markets, and traditional greek taverna since 1980 "Psaropula", so you have "two in one" - peaceful quiet ambience of mountain living, and vivid place to go out, swim and shopping, just closeby. There're also many beautiful beaches and tavernas and historical places to see around the area. On top of it, Toni and Olimpia are great hosts, very helpful for anything we needed and easy to get on with, we knew a lot about life in Crete just from talking to Toni. And for sure we'd love to come back, to be in this beautiful place again! :)
We had a very pleasant stay at Oli & Toni's studio apartment. It's a very clean and comfortable place, with a very nice bathroom. There's no air conditioning and it can be very hot in South of Crete, but if you try to keep the hot air out then the two big ceiling fans are all you really need.
Oli & Toni are very friendly hosts. They gave us some very nice tips about the area: restaurants and festivities that we otherwise probably would have missed.
Communication went smooth.
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
