A comfortable and well maintained property.
Our 2nd stay at this property. Enjoyed the quiet and swimming pool. For a self catering holiday the apartment is well equipped with all that you require. Only a short walk to the village and shops and the sea and beach. Visited other areas of Crete via bus excursions, which were well organized and interesting. Also enjoyed walking in the local countryside and hills.
lovely apartment with large pool (often empty) and short walk to the beach. The big terrace with sofas was great for relaxing.
A comfortable well furnished apartment.
Situated in a good quiet area but within easy walking distance of the village shops, taverns and beach. Well furnished apartment in which we wanted for nothing.
Great property in a great location
We had a great week in Analipsi. The apartment is only 20 minutes drive from Heraklion airport, which is ideal for arriving late at night. We didn't use the pool onsite but it is only a few metres away. The beach is 5 minutes' walk away and the village of Analipsi has all local amenities such as shops and restaurants. The restaurants are good value and we didn't have a single bad meal. There is a larger Lidl about 15mins drive away.
We hired a car which is definitely recommended if you are there for more than a few days. We did some day trips to places such as Matala, and also one to Santorini. The local beach in Analipsi is nice enough but as it is on the North coast, if there is any wind the sea gets quite choppy. Areas such as Ligalia beach (near Agia Pelagia) are not too far away by car and more sheltered.
The apartment itself is very well equipped, compared to many self-catering places we have stayed in before. The balcony from the kitchen isn't too big, but it's big enough for eating and great for watching the sunset. The larger terrace is very comfortable and nicely sheltered from the sun during the day.
There is air conditioning in the living room and also the bedroom. We stayed in early September so it was still very warm, meaning we had the a/c on for a bit at night to make sleeping more comfortable.
If I had to be really picky (this is why I have given four stars and not five) - the owner requires you to leave the apartment exactly as you found it at the start. This means washing all the sheets, towels etc, as well as cleaning all the floors and so on. If you don't do this you get charged €50 for cleaning. You can avoid this fee by paying... €50 for a cleaner. It would be better to build cleaning into the cost of the stay itself. We would expect to sweep floors etc. but I don't really want to spend my holiday washing towels! Just remember to budget an additional €50.
Otherwise a great holiday. Thoroughly recommended if you are looking for somewhere in Northern Crete.
"We had a wonderful vacat...
"We had a wonderful vacations. The house was perfect for our family (2 adults) and the pool was a good size and clean. The village is very peaceful and the people extremely friendly and generous - despite the language barriers.
We have just a remarque about the view of the inside and outside villa in the website. House is more beautiful! "
Tolles Apartment, sehr gut gelegen!
Wir waren zu viert (2 Erwachsene, 2Kinder 11+13 Jahre )in diesem Apartment. Es war genug Platz für Alle, auch zum zurück ziehen. Es ist sehr schön und sehr stilvoll eingerichtet. Wir haben uns rund um sehr wohl gefühlt und bedauern das wir nicht länger bleiben konnten. Von vorne rein hat alles gut geklappt, die Schlüsselübergabe, die Einweisung mit der Infobroschüre über die Nutzung der vorhandenen Geräten war sehr hilfreich und für uns ganz einfach zu bedienen, wir haben uns schon fast wie zu Hause gefühlt. Wir können es nur empfehlen, es ist besonders gut ausgestattet und alles ist vorhanden, was man benötigt. Die große Terrasse mit Meerblick ist sehr schön um zu relaxen. Die Lage ist gut, man kommt sehr schnell nach Heraklion oder auch relativ zügig zu tollen Stränden nahe Agios Nikolaos gelegen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants sind genügend in unmittelbarer Nähe vorhanden. Sehr gerne kommen wir wieder!
