We spent two days here visiting the castle town and the surrounding area. This apartment is a very comfortable two story unit right on the beach road. The location was perfect for us. The kitchen and upper bedroom windows look directly at the beach in front and at the ‘rock’, but the entry door is on the back side facing the main road. There is no noise despite the fact that the restaurants and the beach promenade are directly in front. (The access to the beach and promenade is less than 20 meters along the road.).
The apartment has everything needed for a successful stay. A few essentials are in the kitchen, the beds are very comfortable, the bathroom is completely modern, and the feel is like you are visiting a real home, not a sterile vacation rental.
As one reviewer noted, you must be aware that the bedrooms are up a tight but very safe and easy spiral staircase, so if you have large suitcases it will be a challenge. Fortunately we had small bags.
We spent one day visiting the medieval town and climbing to the top of the rock (which is not as daunting as it looks at first glance), and a second day travelling south to spend the day at the amazing, almost deserted, long sandy beaches of Elefonisi island, which is easily accessible by a short car ferry ride.
What a wonderful place this was to stay in. It was a perfect spot for our family getaway. If you want a beautiful, peaceful place to relax and unwind then look no further. The hostess Maria was very helpful and kind and the house was well stocked with linens and the kitchen well outfitted. The views from the balconies and the close proximity to the water (where we were mostly alone!) made it idyllic. Thank you Maria!
