We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this affordable beach rental. Sofia and Spyros were very pleasant and accommodating hosts. From the rental, we were able to walk to the beach quickly and easily. We enjoyed the house itself too: the overall amount of space, the beach view, the natural light, the wind, and the sun. The French doors, large windows, and wood shutters throughout the house were lovely. Overall, a very nice surprise after a long journey. The closest town, Kissimos, is quite close and offers all the things you want--sights and fresh food being the most important! A bit of drive to the airport (and therefore Knossos), but 100% worth it. Highly recommended. Would return.
