Michael and his family are very friendly... We're thankful for their kindness.
The size of the studio was for us quite good because we stayed there only two nights. For a longer staying it could be not adequate, but that it's an individual taste.
Because we were with a car, we find the location perfect in addition to the nice view from the garden.

Die Unterkunft ist sehr gepflegt und mo- dern ausgestattet.
Sie liegt sehr ruhig in einem Vorort mit schönem Blick auf die Bucht von Heraklion
und die gegenüber liegenden Berge.
Der Gastgeber hat uns persönlich zur Fähre gebracht.
500 words is insufficient to describe the experience my girlfriend and I had while staying at Michael's place.
From the minute we arrived at this very unique and very beautiful place to the morning our agenda forced us to regrettably move on down the road, both Michael and his parents treated us like close family.
The detached studio apartment had everything any visitor would ever want... and a beautiful view of the valley below to boot.
The time spent with the Mavrogs was unique, sincere, and much appreciated. Anyone lucky enough to follow in our footsteps to this abode will not regret it for one second.
Beautiful place to stay. A bit out of the way but perfectly fine with a rental car. Would stay here again.
Michael is a great host! He picked us up from the bus station, drove us around the neighborhood to orient us and brought us to his beautiful home where his mom had baked us cookies. The studio is very cozy, the kitchenette was perfect for our needs and the bathroom has proven to have the most reliable toilet we've had in our European travels. There were huge windows which we opened at night to let in the fresh scent of the well tended garden and the front patio had a spectacular view of the mountain and sea.
There is a bus stop nearby but we never needed to use it. Knossos and the city center are about a 45 minute walk downhill which we always enjoyed. There are plenty of grocery stores close to the studio.
Michael and his family are extremely hospitable and provided us with fresh fruit and he even took us out on our last night in town. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly come back again.
Майкл очень гостеприимный хозяин, он встретил нас в аэропорту, и в квартире были всякие вкусности - мед, оливковое масло, вино) Хочу напомнить, что жилье - это не гостиница, в этом свои плюсы и минусы, помните об этом) У него отличный папа - он нас проводил, жаль что он не понимает на английском или русском, очень мудрый человек, интересно с ним было бы поболтать без языкового барьера.
Место находится не так близко - но в этом и плюс - очень спокойно и тихо. Рядом есть супермаркет и автобусная остановка.
Вообще я бы рекомендовал останавливаться в Ираклионе, в центре, и не более чем на два дня, а то и меньше, и ехать дальше - только для того чтобы посетить музей, и раскопки рядом.)
The flat looked exactly as on the photos and the hosts were very good. Within distance of Heraklion. In addtion sometimes, some food was provided and pickup from the airport and dropoff. A good choice!
We where friendly recieved by michael his parents who we're very kind to us. The showed us the small but very cosy studio. we felt relaxed as soon as we entered the room. It's decorated very collorfull and gives off a good vibe just like in the pictures. A bit later we saw Michael who was very friendly to us and he also gave as some good tips to visit. He was so kind to ask us every time if we needed anything and we just felt right at home. And for those who like to keep in touch with home or just like to look up some things , there is a good wireless internet connection!
We also had a car with us and could park it well protected at there place.
If you exit the street of michael's place it gets a bit busy on the road, but after a day or 2 driving there you're used to it.
There are some places nearby to go for a drink or a snack. Also there is an express market just 1 or 2 bloks away that has everything you need.
I also recommend driving south towards "Leoforos Ethnikis Antistasis 99, Vasilies", it's about 10 min drive and on your left side you have a small but beautifull decorated local tavern that we discoverd on our last 2 days. The food was great and they we're very friendly, also or jaw dropped when we saw how little we had to pay for the excellent meals and wine we had!
In other words, for those who like to explore the middle and east part of crete on a low budget and still wanna sleep at a relaxed place at night... then this is a great place to stay at !! And we definitely recommend it !!

Het appartement is klein maar compleet. Je hebt alles wat je nodig hebt. We waren met de auto en er was een privé parkeerterrein. Ook de WiFi werkte goed. Het terras en de rest van het buitengebeuren is geweldig met een fantastisch uitzicht, waar we erg van hebben genoten. We hebben Michael niet zoveel gezien maar zijn familie was erg gastvrij en we werden onthaald met eigengebakken koekjes. We waren maar 2 nachten hier en we zijn 2 x naar de stad gelopen voor het diner. Dit is goed te doen, 1 rechte weg, 3 kwartier lopen.
Michael was very nice with us.
At the beginning he picked up us at the airport to his home, and gave us good advices for Heraklion and visiting Creta.
He has some good cosmetics from his company and wine from his family thats he shared to us.
Michael is a very nice person, a person that can communicate easily with and a person you can spent hours talking with him about everything. He left the apartment in a perfect condition so i recommend him 100%. Thanks Michael i hope to see you soon in Crete in your apartment.
Thank you Chrysovalantis. Whenever you want to visit Heraklion let me know!!
Great guest! Michael Mavrogiannis left my place clean and organized. Highly recommended!
Great guest, would love to have back.
Michael is a very nice and friendly person! I have known him for more than 20 years and I can assure that he is trustworthy, he is generous and kind, and I am sure that he will be the best host during your stay. I am certain that he and his wonderful family will make you feel at home!
