“The house was just as evident on all pictures. Very clean and well maintained. The pool was always clean and George came every now and then to wait around the pool. George is a very good host !! He picked us up from the airport and helped us pick up the rental car and arranged the tickets for the ferry. He also showed us the shopping possibilities on site and gave us tips for restaurants and excursions. George was always available for us and helped me to prepare a birthday surprise for my mom. Thanks again George! You are the best! All in all, it was a great Crete holiday and we definitely recommend the Twins House.”

“Our first airbnb experience was supposed to be one of our best travel trips. Melesses is a quiet village with hospitable residents and within walking distance of many attractions. Knossos, Archanes, Agios Vasilios, Alagni, Choudetsi, Myrtia, the wonderful southern beaches, the beautiful churches and the exquisite delights of the taverns will all be unforgettable. As for the warm nest created by Panagiotis and Roula, it is a stone house with two enchanting courtyards, which has everything the visitor might need, being an ideal place to relax. But it is the hosts who, with their natural courtesy and personal touches in the area that make you feel welcome. We look forward to returning. Our very first airbnb experience was meant to be one of our best trips. The village of Meleses is a peaceful place with friendly and hospitable people, within walking distance of many sights worth visiting, surrounded by endless vineyards and olive groves. Only some of them are the archaeological site of Knossos, the traditional town of Archanes, the nearby picturesque villages of Aghios Vasileios, Alagni, Houdetsi, Myrtia etc, the fascinating south beaches, the astonishing old churches, which, along with our exquisite food tasted in the little taverns, will remain in our memory for ever. The nest that Panagiotis and Roula have created is a unique stone house with two wonderfoul yards, equipped with everything guests might need, transformed into an ideal place of relaxation. Yet, it is the hosts themselves who with their innate kindness and politeness and their personal touches all over the place make you feel welcome. We just can't wait to go back.”
