Great host ! We had great time at Katerina and Giorgos house. The best treatment you could have. At Katerina and Giorgos you fell like home in the better sense. You feel bad only when you have to leave. Highly recomended .

Crete is famous for being an hospitable island and we wanted to experience this. I looked at lots of reviews on air BnB until I saw a review that said "what are you doing looking at reviews - just book it!" And so we did. And we are so pleased that we did because Jiorgos and Katerina looked after us so well. I was anxious that we would need to hire a car to get to their home but this was not the case. Kaloudiana is on the bus route from Chania to Kissamos. Jiorgos picked us up from the bus stop so that we didn't need to carry our luggage the 500m to their home. At the end of our two day stay he also dropped us back. In addition to this he also took us on a family outing to the beach at Kissamos and for a lovely tour of the district one night at sunset so we could take some beautiful photos. Katerina and Jiorgos have a beautiful home. The guest area upstairs is private and has all modern conveniences including a fridge. The bed is extremely comfortable and we slept really well. In conclusion- we were treated like royalty. You know what to do - just book it.

Thank you that you have shared with us two days. You were so kind and I hope that you felt home those days. It's a long way from Greece to your country but who knows. Perhaps in the future will 'meet you again.

Katerina and Yiorgos house lies in the Kissamos neighborood, on the way to Elafonissi and not far from Falasarna and Balos so in good position for touring western Crete. The house is perfect and guests can find everything they'd need there, but for further info you can read the extremely positive reviews below. My comment will point to other aspects of our stay. As an Airbnb user I usually look for clean and nice places, where descriptions match with reality and no surprises. Finding Katerina and Yiorgos has been a totally different and unique experience: we have found warmth and friendship much àbove the hospitality one could possibly expect. Me and my daughters feel really enriched from this experience. Thanks Katerina, thanks Yiorgos you deserve much more than 5 stars!!!

This is way beyond a common Airbnb experience. We have been travelling a lot but we have never been treated with such care, felt like we were part of the family. The apartment reserved to the guests is superclean and comfortable, but what really makes the difference here is the humanity of our superhosts: from day one they opened us their house like we were longtime friends and gave us much more than a place to stay. Sharing Giorgos' hilarious stories till late at night, walking through his olive fields, tasting Katerina's great food and charm, laughing a lot with Leo (lucky little dog, he's such fun) is something that fills your heart and makes you want to stay. Great people, great place. Super recommended.

How can we put into words how great our stay was! The rooms and bathroom were immaculate and the hosts made us feel right at home. We enjoyed breakfast with them daily and were fortunate enough to have a home made dinner on our last night .. if they offer this to you as a "light" dinner .. make sure you're STARVING lol. Katerina keeps the courses coming and is an amazing cook. We arrived after midnight our first night and they stayed up to greet us. They let us borrow their chairs and umbrella for the beach. We will absolutely be back and would recommend this place to anyone!

Ενδιαφέροντα του Γιώργου είναι η ζωγραφική και οι κατασκευές και εμένα η διακόσμηση και η καθαριότητα του σπιτιού. Ολοι οι φιλοξενούμενοί μας μέχρι τώρα έχουν τις καλλίτερες αναμνήσεις από την διαμονή τους. Η προσπάθειά μας είναι να βελτιωνόμαστε συνεχώς ώστε να διατηρήσουμε τον τίτλο του syper host.
