From the owner

This cozy traditional stone house, stands in quiet nature hidden in the typical Cretan landscape , just at five minute walk distance from the center of the picturesque well preserved village of Douliana, just 3 kilometres from the blue flags of the beaches of Kalives, Almirida and Kera, and at the same time very close to many walking /trekking destinations.

The house can accommodate 5 people with 1 bedroom with double bed, one attic with 2 single beds and 1 couch that easily become bed next to the fire place.

Manolis House is not in a mainstream touristic settlement. The vivid hot spots of action (night life, beaches and fancy restaurants) are within 10min range by car, but in Douliana you can have this deep relaxed feeling. As if you were isolated ,or even lost. Soundtrack to that: Singing Birds. Specially on the mornings.

Surrounded by cypress trees, hidden in the typical Cretan landscape, Manolis House gives a quality service, with all the features that will guarantee your pleasant stay.

All rooms have views of the surrounding green hills. The sitting /dining room seats up to six people and leads into a small but fully equipped kitchen. (fridge, boiler, coffee pot, small oven, 2 hot plates)

The house features also unique handmade furniture from local cypress wood, and a careful selection of traditional and modern artworks decorates the pleasant interior.

Central heating, fireplace, ceiling fans, A/C included.

Spacious wardrobes in the bedroom and safe for your value items.

Also a bathroom with shower, a fireplace with internet access. We have deliberately removed TV appliances. We can provide you however if you ask for it, with no extra cost. (Greek channels only).

The exteriors are including a swimming pool , (shared for both houses, 4.50 x 9.50 m, 1.40 m depth ).The pool is seasonal. Opens around first of May till middle of November. These limits are adjusted accoring to the reservations each year.

We also provide sun umbrellas -the Cretan sun is intense- and we have a range of furniture including patio coffee table & chairs , sunbeds and a children's play area, plus easy parking and complimentary bicycles for easy rides.

All guests have access to the gardens with season vegetables and fresh eggs! Ask Mr Manolis in your arrival about more info.

We can also provide baby gear including, baby bed ,a high chair, with retractable table at no extra charge.

Breakfast is not included, but on your arrival you will enjoy a welcoming snack or breakfast.

Interaction with guest

As a guest at Manolis House you will enjoy the relaxing environment and the quiet tree surroundings, interrupted only by occasional bird chirps. However, the owner and son, (Mr Manolis and Dimitris) are easily accessable by phone as they live near by. They will be happy to assist and don’t hesitate to ask recommendations about tours, taverns and other destinations. Don’t miss the chance! Enjoy the fresh vegetables from the garden of the house, the daily eggs from the chickens on the backyard, ask Mr Manolis the secrets of his wine, or even ask him to teach you some of his gardening skills. *Please note , that these are complimentary treats depending on season and weather, and by no means an obligation to our guests.*
