About the property

New Colorful Studio Near The Beach

Newly built studio in the area of Karteros, with wonderful view of mountain and Sea (just opposite Dia Island), in a peaceful environment, inside an olive grove, in walking distance from the beach.

It is ideal to explore the island and relax.

The Space

The studio is placed in a traditional Cretan Olive grove in Karteros. Karteros has to offer unique landscape, just outside of Heraklion city. You can visit all the museums and antiquities, return home to relax, and just walk to the beach. Or you can endulge yourselves to exploring the nearby Gorge, or relax at night and have a BBQ. Listening only the night...The studio sleeps comfortably 4 people in one real double bed and in one double futon bed.

Guest Access

Easy access, 5 minutes from the airport, 10 from heraklion port, practically next to national road entry exit to Chania and Lasithi (west and east crete). Numerous beaches all around.

You have your own garden and shared secured parking space, also there is a shared BBQ area.

Interaction with Guests

We live in a house just above the studio, having a large garden to separate us, with fence. Therefore you maintain your privacy and comfort, yet we are there if you need anything, to help or provide (from advice or a cup of coffee...). We cultivate some vegetables to taste, and there is a large fig tree to try as many figs you wish.

The Neighborhood

The quiet and tranquility is the factor that makes Karteros unique. Plus if you want noise and action you are a short drive from it (Heraklion 7 minutes drive, Hersonissos 15 min. drive, Malia 20 minutes drive etc.). Lots of nice sandy beaches, with sun beds and umbrellas are all around, to enjoy the sea with children or without.

Getting around

Public transport is close by (the bus stop is 20 meters away) and there is twice a day a bus passing. The area is not of heavy traffic rather scarce traffic therefore no frequent public transport, yet there is one if this helps. We strongly suggest to rent a car to enjoy the island to maximum.

Other Things to Note

The studio is brand new, all furnished with IKEA furniture, quality electrical equipment, happy and colorful, pet friendly if you have your favorite pet with you. Ideal for value for money long term vacations for families or couples.

About Alex Alexakis

I am working for years in the internet marketing business as well as in the hotel internet marketing sector, being marketing manager for one of the major incoming agencies in Crete.

My family owns this property for three generations and we are planning develop it, respecting the environment, promoting the area which is really great. One of my best selling points is that I prefer to live there myself!

Alex Alexakis purchased this studio in 1900

Why Alex Alexakis chose Heraklion

First of all the studio is brand new and living practically next door we take good care of it.

We have furnished and decorate it using IKEA, to feel a bit more 'homy' than other rentals, actually we build it like building something for ourselves, respecting the people that will select us.

What makes this studio unique

Karteros area is really the best area in Heraklion!

The property is near the beach (1km) with sand sunbeds and umbrellas, without however the noise and sounds of bars, people etc, being located in a traditional cretan olive grove. You can start form here and easily be in the national road for any excursion, you can go to knossos or visit any of the antiquities and quickly return to a quiet and tranquil environment.

If you are in to hiking you can walk the karteros gorge which is really magnificent.

The city is only 7 kms away so in 7-8 minutes you can be at the centre of heraklion, walking around the shops and the cafes.

We are ideal though for longer stays, as the studio is located in a quiet and safe location, close to the beach, close to shops and you can easily drive to an excursion as national road exits are nearby.

Klein maar net appartement

  • 3 of 5

Wij hebben hier 1 nacht geslapen ivm late aankomst vliegtuig. Dichtbij het vliegveld dus makkelijk. We hebben best lang moeten zoeken ondanks dat we de coordinaten hadden gekregen, bleek dat we een hek moesten openschuiven. Inrichting is netjes, wel wat klein als je er langer dan een dag wilt blijven. Eigenaar is vriendelijk en ligging erg mooi in de bergen vlak bij de zee. Prima voor een tussenstop.
