The location of this property is great as it is right on the beach (though there was an unexpecteed and at times noisy late night club/ bar just a bit further along the beach). The welcome from Joanna (described by Thodoris the host in a text as his partner) was lovely and very welcoming. However, this accommodation was the worst we stayed in on our trip around Crete ( different places), and was very poor value for money. The apartment is in desperate need of some tender loving care with many of the fixtures and fittings of a very poor standard or broken (for example broken light fittings, very old and tired fridge and kitchen unit, poor quality and mismatched crockery and cutlery, poor quality bedding, broken and shabby outdoor furniture, and unkempt outdoor space in the area immediately around the apartment). The accommodation does not measure well in terms of quality and VFM with other Air BnB experiences in other countries. We would not recommend staying at this apartment, nor sadly repeat the experience.
