|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Apartment next to the sea, with large garden. The apartment is fully equipped with kitchen, fridge, washing machine, TV, Internet, A/C etc. It can accommodate two adults and up to two young children. The beach is with sand and peddles is ten metres away. The city centre is 800m away. From here you can also go to Gramvoussa, to Balos lagoon, to the amazing Falassarna beach, to Ancient Polyrrinia, to Elafonissi and to many other beautiful places. Kastelli is 36 km away from Chania and 50 km from the airport. The port of Souda is 42km away.
Although I grew up in Athens, coming to Kastelli on holidays made me love it and choose it as the place where my children would grow up. So, I decided to own property here, move in with my family, and expand it as business activity offering accommodation to people who want to visit Kissamos and enjoy the place.
The sea, the landscape and the peacefulness of the place.
19-27 May 2016
We had the pleasure of staying at the Waterfront Apartments last month and had a very enjoyable stay.
The apartment was ideally situated, being only 50 metres from the sea, which was perfect for a lovely morning dip. Even at weekends the beach was quiet and long enough to probably accommodate even the high season influx. We had hired a car and the apartment was well located for easy access to the main road out of Kissamos for exploring the west of the Island. Kissamos town centre and the promenade restaurants are only a 10-15 minute walk away. In the other direction along the beach there is a beach bar that did not seem to be operating yet and a little further on Mesogios which has a bar, restaurant and swimming pool which they allowed us to use even though we were not residents.
The apartment itself was very modern, comfortable, spacious and tastefully furnished with a large sea facing balcony and probably the best shower we have come across in Crete.
Servicing the apartment was done every 3 days with fresh sheets and towels provided.
There was ample parking for residents vehicles.
Wifi was available although patchy at times..but that's Crete :)
The kitchen area was smart and clean and contained a full size oven with 4 ring hob you were however somewhat limited to just basic dishes due to the utensils provided.
A special request for extra pillows was sorted out immediately by Vasso and we had no doubt that if we were to make any other requests they would be attended to with the same response.
For those who like a rural location there is ongoing entertainment provided by the goats, sheep and other farm animals in the next door properties.
The balcony was a great spot to sit and watch the ships, boats, wildbirds and other activities that took place and to chat with the other residents.
Minas, Vasso and their son Konstandino were very welcoming, accommodating and helpful with suggestions and recommendations for excursions and places to eat.
Unfortunately, due to us booking late, Minas was only able to accommodate us for 2/3 of our stay but was kind enough to arrange somewhere very close by where we spent the last few nights which we also enjoyed.
When we revisit Kissamos we would certainly like to stay at the Waterfront Apartments again and would highly recommend it to other visitors.
A beautiful property, in lovely grounds and right on the beach.
We stayed in the ground floor apartment. It contained all you could ask for. It's a great size and was clean and well equipped. Minas and Vassos are extremely friendly and very helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and very informative about locality. Fantastic sunrise over the beach. Lovely area to sit outside on swing chair. Walking distance along the beach to Kissamos.
We hope to go back in Oct (or next year)
Would definitely recommend.
Really good meal in Pixadia in Kissamos on the seafront. ENJOY
Posto bellissimo, relax e tranquillità. Appartamento vista mare, bello spazioso pulito. Terrazza davvero stupenda. Perfetto per gli amanti del bbq e della cucina leggera! Minas il proprietario super, gentile attento disponibile. Spero non cambi mai. Anche la spiaggia é davvero carina!
Big apartment, very cela and very comfortable. Minas was very kind and help us for every request we had. Every 4 days they change towels and make bad. Very big balcony and beatiful bbq, but not cooking plate in our apartment (all the other has a beautiful kitchen, instead).
Only one problem: the owner, ad i said before, was very kind gentle and available for any question we had, but he forgot to give back to us the rest of the total payment. I think that with a small electrical conductive plate the kitchen and the apertament are going to amazing. However, we bought a little one for two weeks. We enjoy the holiday in vasso apartment so much and we invite you to try this beatiful seaside and seaview apartment!
The owners of the accomodation were very friendly and helpfull, from the moment that we arrived in Kissamos. We were brought to the appartment and got a lot of tips for travelling the west coast of Chania. The appartment was clean, spacial and had a beautifull seasight. When you want to see more of Chania, renting a car is recommended. We liked this accomodation very much, so we would definitively recommend this to everybody. Efharisto Minas and Vasso! :)
In July and august do no miss the local festivals and events organized by Kissamos Municipality: Gramvoussia, re-enactment of Cretan wedding, exhibition of Cretan traditional products, music nights and many more.
