Φιλοξενία, ενδιαφέρον, φροντίδα, οικογένεια,καθαριότητα, ομορφιά. τάξη, ευγένεια το συνιστώ ανεπιφύλακτα. Για όσους ταξιδιώτες βρεθούν στα Χανιά θα τους πρότεινα να επιλέξουν το διαμέρισμα του Άλκη και να νοιώσουν όλα τα παραπάνω και από τον ίδιο αλλά και από την οικογένεια του.
Alkis was amazing. So very welcoming. He was so helpful before we arrived and kindly picked us up to bring us to his apartment. He also welcomed us with gifts. The apartment is exactly like it is shown in the photos. It also had two big balconies and lovely traditional shutters on the doors and windows. Lots of hot water and the washing machine was very handy. Big telly was a hit with the kids with loads of programmes in English with Greek subtitles. The apartment is in a great position. Just up from the beach. We also went to a beautiful beach-in a quiet small bay with just a couple of beach bars- a couple of bays round-just before Golden Beach. Apartment is about 15 min walk to centre of town and old harbour. Taxi rank one street over. Lovely family bakery with big ovens up the street to the right. Fab bread, cakes and pies all baked on the premises. Handy supermarkets. Tasty gyros at end of street. You can buy fish straight off the fishing boats at the little harbour beside the beach. Gorgeous sunsets. Crete is amazing and Alkis , his mum and his Dad (who took us back to the airport) were amazing too. So kind. Thank you Family Drakakis from Family Gillanders !! :)
Hello! We can trully recommend staying at Alkis's apartament. The host is very kind and hospitable. He was also opened to our requests . The apartment is located in the quiet neighborhood and it's really close to the beach (2 min of walk). It only takes several minutes to go to the old town or the port. The apartment is spacious, clean and fully equipped.
That’s the end of official part :) Beyond that polite, usual review, there’s an incredibly friendly host Alkis, not intrusive, but ready to help at any time, making us feeling like home. When we arrived, the kitchen was full of gifts, fruits, olive oil, cookies, and more. Really, MORE :). So if you want to spend a really nice time in Crete, go for it blindly! You won’t be disappointed.
I can recommend Alkis as a host. He and his family are really wonderful! They were very helpful during our visit in Chania. Apartment is well equipped and located in close distance from the beach and the old town.
If you want fantastic time in Greece just call Alkis (or his Dad) :), they will treat you like a rock star! They picked us up form the airport and we took a trip together around the city!
Thank you for your hospitality and see you next time!
Alkis and his parents are very hospitable, responsive, we felt at home and as a part of their family.The apartment is large, clean and very comfortable. It has got two balconies. The first one has a street and a sea view and the second one looks at the yard with a beautiful tree and has the White mountains view. The apartment is located conveniently within walking distance of the beach, tavernes and Old Town with its sightseeings. Thanks again for the great stay, we will decidedly recommend the flat to stay at.
Ο Άλκης και οι γονείς του είναι πολύ φιλόξενοι και μας έκαναν να νιώσουμε σαν στο σπίτι και σαν μέρος της οικογένειάς τους. Το διαμέρισμα είναι μεγάλο και καθαρό, πολύ άνετο, έχει δυο μπαλκόνια, πρώτο στην πλευρά της οδού, με θέα στη θάλασσα, και δεύτερο στην ήσυχη αυλή με το όμορφο δέντρο με θέα στα Λευκά Όρη. Το διαμέρισμα βρίσκεται σε βολική τοποθεσία, σε κοντινή απόσταση από την παραλία, τις ταβέρνες και την Παλιά Πόλη με όλα τα αξιοθέατά της. Σας ξαναευχαριστούμε πολύ για την υπέροχη διαμονή μας! Συστήνουμε ανεπιφύλακτα!
Alkis is such a great host. He made us feel like home from the first minute. He even invited us to go out the first night and had fresh orange juice, fruit and cake for us! Thanks for everything Alkis. The apartment is big and in a amazing location (5 min walk to the centre and 1 min to the beach) and if you are renting a car, there is plenty of car park on the street. Will definitely see you again brother :)
What a great host. Alkis met us at the airport and took us to the apartment, telling us about the area on the way. He texted us to check everything was Ok a couple of times. The apartment was in a great area - close to some excellent restaurants, the best beach in Chania and 10 minutes walk from the Venetian harbour. Parking for our hire car was easy too.
The apartment was spacious and comfortable and wonderful value. Fantastic.
We really enjoyed our stay at Alkis' place. The apartment is well equipped with fast wifi and close to the city center:)) Thanks a lot!
Great apartment. Incredible host! Alkis was fantastic, came to pick us up from the bus station and after showing us the way to the town centre, took us to the apartment, which is in a fantastic location close to everything. There was fresh fruit and vegetables in the fridge as well as a selection of beverages and freshly squeezed orange juice, which Alkis notified was free for us to use. The apartment itself was spacious and very easy to get around. Wifi worked fast, washing machine came in handy and the bedrooms are spacious with large (website hidden) with sky channels came in handy when winding down in the evenings and there's loads of good restaurants just outside of the apartment as well as two mini markets for fresh goods, with very friendly locals and good selection of produce. Alkis then went one further and took us to the ferry port at the end of our stay as well as letting me try the 'baglama' out, so all in all the stay couldn't have been much better and we're both thinking we might return again for another trip.
Chania was amazing! Alkis and the family greeted us very friendly. We felt like we came to our family:-) I highly recommend! clean large apartment, everything we needed was in place. Location first class. anywhere close - a few minutes to the beach, shops, taxi, tavern, old town. Alkis help us with everything - tickets, rent a car. We come back next year!
