 " Strategic area to see the most beautiful beaches of the north! Quiet and very nice area with a small port where there are many tavernas to eat and stay outside the crowds. Clean and modern apartment as in the picture. But above all, I strongly recommend the hospitality of Emilio who recommended us for the whole week both the beaches where to go and the taverns where to stop and I must say we were never disappointed!! Recommended above all for couples who want some privacy and relaxation. " 


 " Amazing, wonderful, relaxing, home-away-from-home feel ... to say the least! To say that our stay was great would be an understatement! Emilio is beyond wonderful and we cannot thank him enough for making our vacation even more enjoyable. The property is a treasure you do not want many to discover, yet cannot help talking about. A sanctuary nevertheless, making you escape your everyday thoughts! Emilio is the best tour guide, kind enough to share the secret spots and places to go to where not many tourists may venture. Not to mention the most discrete medium in putting secret birthday plans into action! The only thing you will regret is not booking your stay for longer. We challenge you to find something that you will not like. " 


 ” Kamares was a great place to stay on the west of Crete. The location is perfect for visiting the beaches that Crete is famous for. It is a short walk down to the small town where there a couple of great places to eat. It’s advisable to have a car so that you can visit some of the places that the host recommends! He pretty much planned my entire three days and they were perfect. Amazing places to eat and quieter beaches which I would not have found myself. The actual apartment was beautiful. Well designed and had a great balcony so there was some outdoor space. “
