Our vacation rental at Artist Apt. in front of the Sea" was perfect. The condo is spotlessly clean, very well equipped in the kitchen, and the beds are comfortable. The location is ideal for travelling and exploring western Crete. We arrived to a table full of goodies and a lamb dish in the fridge for dinner. It was so thoughtful. Our host Maria was very quick to respond to any texts or emails. As she had to work when we checked in, she had her friend greet us and explain all the necessary points. Maria also includes an amazing Guide Book full of suggestions and pointers for exploring the area and beyond. I highly recommend this rental unit.

Even before we arrived at Maria's accommodations, Maria was super helpful, providing directions to her accommodations and being accessible whenever we needed help. Later she mentioned she wasn't going to be there during our stay, however she arranged for her Friends and family to be there when arrived and to make sure we were okay. Her mother even dropped by a famous cretain dish or us to try. As for the accommodations, they were perfect. Literally across the street from the beach, two seconds away from a few markets , restaurants and pubs. It was a dream come true. A true paradise on earth. We hope to come back again!

Maria is very kind person. Basket of regional goods was waiting for us, when we came to the place. The apartment was exactly like in the pictures, clean and comfortable, 10 metres to the sea. Maria also helped us with a transport from the airport. We had a great holiday. We highly recommend this apartment!

We have really enjoyed staying in the Maria's apartment. It is hard to define what should be mentioned first. I was pleased to communicate with Maria. Maria provided us with her personal recommendations via email. Also, we found printed version in the apartments. Thank you very much, we used them. Maria regaled us with a home cooked meal. Despite the fact that we arrived at 3am we were greeted with fruits, wine and other goodies. Moreover, Maria is really interested in our happiness. Unfortunately, we did not have a chance to meet. The apartment is very well-equipped. We found everything that we need: air conditioning, washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster and etc. With all this apartment is very cozy. I was made to feel at home. One of the numerous advantages is location. The apartment is located in Kalamaki. Therefore, we avoided bustle compared to what it was in center of Chania. Also, it is really across from the sea: one minute and you swim. In addition, we did not have any problems with parking near apartments. Maria, thank you once again

You cannot go wrong with this apartment! It is as excellent as it looks online, and Maria is a truly wonderful host. Any questions that my girlfriend and I have were answered quickly and accurately. There is loads of information in the apartment of things to do in the area and you are within 15 minutes walk from at least 4 wonderful beaches! Particularly Iguana beach and Golden beach! Absolutely do not be put off by the fact it is out of the centre of Chania. It's actually nice to get away to your only lovely home at the end of the day! The bus network is really really easy to work out, offering buses every 15 minutes in to town and it costs next to nothing to get around! The drivers are all very friendly and offer help when needed! If you don't want to head in to Chania, there is plenty around the apartment in terms of restaurants, bars and shops. Salavantes is a particularly friendly and lovely place to eat, 2 minutes walk away!! The offer of a transfer from the airport to the apartment was a massive help at the start of the holiday, and meant we arrived stress free and saved a bit of money as it's cheaper than a taxi! Maria - thank you so so so much for making our holiday so wonderful. We will be recommending you to all of our friends and family! σε ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ!!

Everything was just perfect - the apartment is beautiful, well equipped and close to the beach. Communication with Maria was a pleasure - we were provided with many tips and useful information about where to go (Falassarna beach is simply the best and Balos is also close to the apartment if your are by car). But that is not all - we were welcomed with great food and cretan specialties! We instantly felt like home there!
