I am a proud mother of 2 boys, love cooking and making jewelry, decoration and travelling.
We had a really good stay at Rena's apartment. Rena is a very kind person. She bought us pretty much all we needed for breakfast, some traditional Cretan products and gave us lots of recommandations for restaurants, beaches and day trips.
The apartment is really nice. Everything was very clean and it offers you everything you need. We loved especially the terrace, where you can have breakfast and dinner!
We also liked Kissamos. As we went in October there were hardly any tourists there, the beach (about 10-15 min to walk from the apartment) is very clean and you can easily reach the beautiful beach in Falassarna by bus/car.
I highly recommend staying in Rena's apartment! If we will come to Kissamos again, we will definitely stay in her apartment again!
un accueil très chaleureux de la part de Rena, malgré l'heure tardive.
L'appartement est très agréable, spacieux, décoré avec goût, les photos sur le site sont très représentatives du charme de l'appartement.
Réna nous a réservé une agréable surprise en nous préparant un assortiments de spécialités locales (Raki,vin blanc, huile d'olive, olives en bocal, du fromage et des petits pains aux olives et petites pâtisseries au miel). De plus il y avait également tout ce qu'il faut pour le petit déjeuner (café, thé, miel, confiture...).
Les informations sur les environs, les lieux à visiter que nous a données Réna, nous ont été très utiles.
Réna est une hôte exceptionnelle que je recommande à tous ceux qui veulent faire un petit tour en Crête.
Rena is really wonderful host. In her appartment you feel yourself as at home. It very nice, stylish & you can find even more then you need. Small terrace was wonderful for breakfast. The village itsef is fantastic. Very quite, easy to get to fantastic beaches, but is not so crowded by tourists.
I should mention about Rena's hospitality separately. We arrived late at night & she came from Chania just for our visit. She was so nice, provided with all needed info. She is really one of the best hosts we have seen.
If you want to visit Crete, we would highly reco to stay in Kissamos & to stay in Rena's app. You will discovery the wonderful places & have an opportunity to meet very nice people.
It was one great week in the superior Rena’s flat in Kissamos! You can easily discover west part of Crete from that place. Supermarket AGORA is about 400 m. There is also a post office, very good bakery. On the way to port on the right side there is a Carrefour supermarket. You can visit beautiful beach Napigia (5 km to the east) and also great sandy beach Falasarna (15 km to the west).
Flat is fully equipped with all necessary. When we arrived, Rena told us all information and also prepared a surprise for us. There is a nice terrace on the backyard. If you have any problems, just ask Rena!
We stayed at Rena's apartment for 7 days in August.From the very beginning everything was perfect.Our host waited for us at the place and welcomed us with raki,olive oil,honey,yogurt.Anything that we needed for our vacation was there and clean.Rena gave us some tips and maps for Crete and the surroundings. Kissamos is a small town but has all You need and this house makes a perfect base for visiting western Crete.The place has a small terrace where we enjoyed our morning coffees and late night (website hidden) has AC but we did not need it cos the place is cool enough.Thank You Rena once again and all the best.
The people of Crete set a very high standard for hospitality and Rena was no exception. She welcomed us into her home at a very late hour and was responsive to all our emails and questions about everything Crete. Her home was too big for 2 people and we were unable to use all the space. We did however, use the garden terrace in the back which seemed to be shared by other neighbors who would greet us each morning. We had coffee and tea every morning and every night which was provided by Rena along with olive oil, bread, Raki, wine, and other foods in the fridge. When we walked around Kissamou many people asked us where we were staying and most of them knew Rena and spoke very highly over her. The location of her place was a great base for Western Crete. Amazing beaches only 30 minutes away. A lot of people recommend staying in Chania but we preferred Kissamou due to it being not so touristy and having a very local feel with the ability to interact with locals. Thanks Rena!
The best thing we discover in this very comfortable house is the kindness and courtesy of our hostess Rena.
We recommend this apartment to everybody who want enjoy the western part of Crete: the beaches of Falasarna and Elafonisi; the lagoon of Balos and the villages of Xania and Rethimo.
We stayed at Rena's apartment with our little daughter for about a week and really enjoyed it. The apartment is very clean, cozy and cool even in the hot summer of Crete (brand new A/C + good blinds). It is located very conveniently within 2 min. to the next supermarket, 5 min. to town center and 10 min. to the beach / promenade, by foot. Rena herself is the most lovely and helpful host you can wish for, she really cares for her guests and their well-being. She also knows and loves her hometown Kissamos very much and thus has the best tips for Bars, Restaurants and Beaches in town and on the island.
This is the perfect place for relaxing holidays on the beautiful island of Crete.
It was best ever vacation while we stayed at Rena's apartments! Everything that could be needed for independent holidays is in. Rena is very hospitable: we have been met with handmade products, fruits and even breakfast for the next day. Also Rena suggested many good places to visit that became our favorites of spent time in Crete. My only best recommendations!)
The place we hired from Rena was a very clean and decent apartment. Everything we needed (and more) was taken care of.
Also she gave us some nice suggestions for the environment and communication was pleasant.
