Guestbook comments from the owner

I've just returned from a two week holiday at the Bousoulas appts with my 91 year old mother. I recommend Bousoulas highly. The location is perfect, just on the edge of the tourist area and just around the corner from a lovely sandy beach with tavernas. Two minutes walk the other way there is a quiet spot with sun loungers on grass, easily accessible to someone with walking difficulties.

Aghios Nikolaos itself is a very attractive resortwith harbour, lake and two beaches. It is a good base from which to explore Eastern Crete. Anne is very knowledgable about the area and can suggest places to visit.

The appt has a fantastic view of sea, harbour and mountains and it felt like a lot of care and attention had gone into fitting it out for holiday makers.

But I think the unique selling point of this holiday appt is the owner herself, Anne Bouras. We bumped into her most days coming in and out and she always made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday and feel safe. It made everything easy having an (origionally) English person to talk to.

I would recommend this holiday to anyone - people who want to explore and go walking, people who want a lively up market resort and beach holiday and especially anyone who feels particularly vulnerable due to age or disability.

Central and clean appartment with great views

  • 4 of 5

The appartment is in a residential area within easy walking distance to several of the beaches, the lake and many good restaurants etc. We were met by Anne (the owner) who was extremely welcoming and helpful in providing both general and tourist information about the local and surrounding areas (all easily accessible by public transport). Anne also gave some excellent recommendations for places to eat which were great, (particularly Chrisofyllis and Paradosiako) both are near Kitroplatia beach. We also loved the quirky pizza bar 'Sirocco' at the Marina which has a lovely friendly atmosphere and ambience. The short, but hilly walk upto Chez George for a cocktail is well worth it to fully appreciate great views of the lake. In conclusion, we would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this appartment ... Anne and her husband Vasilis will ensure your needs are met where possible.

Great Apartment with central location and stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and found the apartment to be very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The unit is spacious and has a nice balcony and a great view of the sea. We had a car, but it is not needed for the apartment is located very close to the city center and within walking distance to most sites and restaurants. Anne is a wonderful host and is very helpful in assisting you with sight seeing information and recommendations. If you have a car, there is free public parking very near by. The area is safe.

We were delighted with our stay and plan to stay there again next year.

Good location and good value

  • 4 of 5

We were there end of May. Anne picked us up right after we arrived at bus station. Anne was very accommodating on our deposit. The apartment is in good location and walking distance to the town center, Marina, restaurants and bus station. The neighborhood is safe and everyone is very friendly. The room we stayed is good for 2 people. The balcony has a great view of ocean. There is a small supermarket around the corner you can get water and fruits. The restaurants Anne recommended are good.

Perfect apartment in Agios Nikolaos

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is set in the beautiful neighborhood in the center of Agios Nikolaos. Although many referred to it as a residential neighborhood I found it to be perfect for spending holidays and easy for exploration of the other parts of Eastern Crete (specifically, beaches are to the right, lake is to the left, and the bus station is behind).

The apartment itself is spotlessly clean, spacious, and light. The rooms are equipped with everything necessary for the perfect holidays and even few extras (the owners have been very generous in offering welcome gifts). One very important thing that should not be overlooked is that the amazing view from the flat - sea, mountains, trees, guarantees a complete tranquility. I could not have wished for more. Thank you, Anne!

A perfect choice with a feeling of homeliness

  • 5 of 5

We are visiting Agios Nikolaos a couple of time every year. The second time we discovered Bousoulas. It´s perfect for us. Situated near the town center and with a wonderful view over the sea. The appartments are spacious with balcony towards the sea. The studios on the roof are quite small, but very charmy. It´s very well cleaned, and the host and hostess are very very nice. We are looking forward to the spring (2010) when we are coming back to Bousoulas.
