In fact, we built the slope of the rocks from the house to the sea with small terraces, flowered plants and vineyards, and we reach them Sea level or we have created a private space for swimming (even naked) with sun loungers and umbrellas.

The house is exactly as described, very comfortable and well equipped with wonderful views and super quick access to a beautiful, private bathing spot. The swimming is off rocks so not for anyone who wants sandy beaches. You do need a car, as there isn’t much close by, although you can walk to a simple but very nice taverna.
They can also sell you bread and fish. Eleni was very generous in what she provided for us on arrival and very helpful with tips and information. Not for those seeking nightlife and buzz, but for anyone seeking peace, beauty and quiet, paradise!
Great view and property, would recommend
Lieber Nikos, liebste Eleni, ihr habt ein wunder, wunder schönen Platz auf Kreta zum Urlaub machen. Ruhe, Entspannung, der Ausblick, die Ausstattung, die liebevolle Betreuung, die Willkommensgeschenke, alles zusammen in der Kombination einfach nur ein Traum.
Zum Glück haben wir euch gefunden, man kommt als Fremder und geht als Freund… wer hier was zum meckern hat ist selber Schuld!!!!!!!!!!!!
Liebste Grüße Andrea und Bepi
nous recommandons sans hésiter le logement de Nikos ! l’emplacement est magnifique , la maison est très confortable, très propre. Nous avons été tres bien accueillis par Eleni …bref un endroit parfait !
très belle vue, baignade en contre-bas dans des eaux cristallines. très bon séjour.
Great view and good hospitality. We got fresh vegetables from Nikos garden and the place was very relaxing and quiet. With a car you can easily go to beautiful beaches and towns in the area. The house was very nice as well!
It was one of the best Airbnb’s I have ever stayed globally. From the location to the design of the house, its proximity to the sea and host being absolutely insanely accommodating it WAS the perfect greek vacation. You can easily film the next tourism board movie for Crete in this location it ticks all the boxes. I had a looong stay here and even on the last day I wanted to stay more, highly recommended.
