Centrally located on the island is a fully equipped deluxe apartment house , has excellent Wi-Fi throughout and a gorgeous view of olive groves , the Mediterranean Sea and Dia Island ! Great deck looking out into the fantastic view in the back and a 30 square meters private courtyard up front of the house with outdoor furniture under the grapevines and a wood burning oven all just for your own use. Only non-smokers please but if you must smoke , there is smoking allowed only in the front courtyard :-)

The house is spacious , tastefully decorated with local artwork , modern kitchen , comfortable furniture and a fabulous view ! There is a heat/ac unit as well as an energy saving fireplace for those chilly nights too . A very nice neighborhood with lots of parking if you wish to rent a car ( we can arrange that for you too ) , By car or bus , it's minutes to the city center of Heraklion , and free airport or boat transfers when you arrive and depart . We can reserve a motorbike for you starting at 12 euros a day and have it right when you arrive , just let us know . Or there is also a city bus that comes in front of the house twice a day , Monday thru Friday . Nearby , there are several traditional restaurants and fish tavernas to choose from too ! Every Tuesday there is a fantastic farmer's market where you can pick up your fresh produce , local honey, cheeses , olives and olive oil :-)

When you arrive , you will have ample supply of our very own olive oil for your cooking , a welcome bottle of our wine and olive oil soap made from our olive oil for your showers . You also will be provided with a delicious Cretan appetizer plate and a continental breakfast for your first day with us . From the garden , you will be able to share with us depending on the season , our apricots , figs, grapes , prickly pears , and pomegranates too ! Also , there is a very small neighborhood family-run store for your initial shopping within walking distance from the house .

I am an American who has lived on the island for over 15 years now . It would be my pleasure to assist you with all your excursions and help you experience the real Crete , with all of her ancient mysteries and natural beauty . In the summer ( about 6 months long ) of course we have the pristine beaches everywhere you look , fall and winter we have the making of wine , raki ( or moonshine ) and the harvesting for olive oil through out the villages . There is a fantastic winery nearby to visit and tour called Boutari Winery that is just 4 kilometers from the house . There you will be able to taste , experience and buy some of our local wines to take back home with you too ! There is also a beautiful canyon called the Karteros Canyon just down the hill from the house where you can take wonderful hikes and explore all it's nature .

We are also just minutes from the ancient Minoan Palace of Knossos which is definitely a must see ! There are over 6,000 villages , 3000 caves and more than 350 beaches to explore on the island and all unique in their own special way . You will never forget Crete ?
