The beach retreat is found just a few steps away from Stavros' famous beaches, and next to the cafes and restaurants of the village.
Although it is situated in the middle of the village, that place has a very calm and relaxing atmosphere.
The house is naturally cooled by the thick stone walls of the main building and the openings that bring in the summer breeze.

It is found very close to Chania International Airport.

The space

The house consists of two spaces, the upper and the lower, as you can see on the exterior photo of the building.
The upper space is the main apartment, with the big veranda overlooking the garden, a living room, a dinning area and an open kitchen, along with a bathroom and the main bedroom with the double bed. There is also a small, enclosed veranda at the back, that can be reached from the kitchen and the bedroom.
(the double bed and the sofa beds are found on the upper house)
Downstairs there is an individual studio with two single beds and a bathroom with shower.
Both spaces have direct access to the garden.

Guest access

The individual studio apartment, that is found in the lower space of the property, is available in reservations for 3 adults or more.
Otherwise it can be rented with the main apartment upon request.
(extra charge)

Prior to our arrival communication was superb - details of the property, our arrival and any help needed was provided promptly and replies were always within minutes. On arrival we phoned and were met and shown the house, and introduced to the whole family - all of whom speak fluent English (bar the dog for obvious reasons). We were even allowed to arrive early as nobody had booked in before us - which made life a lot easier. The same went for check out - had we not had to be at the airport early then we were told we could stay on as long as we wanted. The pictures of the property do not do it justice. It is beautiful, peaceful and well decorated and appointed. It has a large enclosed shaded garden with an ample veranda with dining area, meaning when we were at home we spent most of our time outside enjoying the surroundings. The property is split across two levels which are not joined internally. There are some steps going down to a room with sofas that convert into beds with a separate bathroom which could sleep two people (perfect for teenagers that wanted their own space). Above this, there is then a short flight of fairly steep steps that go to the veranda and the entrance to the rest of the property which consists of a large sitting room, dining room, kitchen, study area, bathroom and bedroom with vast quantities of storage. Patio doors open from the bedroom onto a separate walled and secluded veranda so that you can sleep with the doors open and you are not overlooked. This also has seating and is shaded by a vine. Beautiful and a good space for drying swimming stuff over night. The kitchen is kitted out with everything you could need to prepare basic food (no food processors or anything fancy but who uses these on holiday anyway?!) and we arrived to a basket of oranges, some biscuits, some orange juice in the fridge and the freezer already stocked with ice cubes (useful given how hot it was). Both Spyros and Maro (his wife) were friendly and helpful, telling us where local shops were, marking on a map (provided) where the best beaches were and what they recommended we see while we were in the area. The whole experience was typically Mediterranean and relaxing, with the property located about a 2 minute short walk from the beautiful, clean, sandy beach and immaculate and sparkly azure blue sea. It is worth noting here, that the area is perfect for young families. The beach is soft and white sand, the sea shelves very gradually so is safe for young children, and there are a number of very good Tavernas (also very child friendly) a moments walk from the beach. There is parking galore so one needn't worry about finding a space and the local shops, which are a short walk up the main road from the beach, provide...

If I could give this 6 stars.... I WOULD! This place is unbelievably gorgeous and pictures do not even do it justice. It is a cute little place, very much like a clean beach shack. It is modern in some ways and also beachy and laid back. Literally a 2 minute walk from the beach. Was so accommodating and easy to get around. We had rented a car from the airport but we really didn't even drive around the island that much because everything around us was so much fun! Spyro's place has wonderful AC and even little clothing racks to put outside, to dry our swim suits and such from the ocean. When we arrived, he was there to say hello and he even provided fruit from the neighborhood. Really was a dream come true for me and my friends and it was definitely our favorite place to stay while traveling around the islands of Greece. I would recommend to any of my friends to go and visit and stay with Spryos. Will definitely be back one day!!! :)

We are a family with two children aged 8 and 12 respectively and we have here a very great experience! Spyros is a really friendly and welcoming person as well as with a great taste in the décor that makes his home already part of the holiday (priceless breakfast under the porch in front of the vine and the fig and the central courtyard in which you can take refuge for a pleasant reading in the shade). Very clean. The house is equipped with everything you need, including washing machine and dishwasher with all the necessities to use them. The location is also very good, 100 meters far from the beautiful Bay of Stavros. We also enjoyed the proximity to the tavern by Zorbas where at reasonable prices it was possible to taste almost every evening a great Cretan cousine. Surely we will be back. Siamo una famiglia con due bambini di 8 e 12 anni rispettivamente ed abbiamo avuto in questo luogo un'esperienza meravigliosa. Spyros è una persona veramente cordiale ed accogliente oltre che con un ottimo gusto nell'arredamento che rende la sua casa già parte della vacanza (impagabile la colazione sotto il portico di fronte alla vite e al fico ed il cortiletto centrale nel quale potersi rifugiare per una gradevole lettura all'ombra). Ottima la pulizia. Ottima anche la posizione a 100 metri dalla splendida baia di Stavros. Abbiamo apprezzato molto anche la vicinanza con la Taverna Da Zorbas dove a prezzi contenuti è stato possibile assaggiare pressochè tutte le sere un'ottima cucina cretese. Sicuramente ritorneremo.

The hosts - Spiros and Maro were very kind and helpful even before we land in Crete and during all our great vacation - providing everything we needed , answering quickly to our SMS when anything we asked for. The house - was beautiful and convenient. The kitchen was accessorized, it was fun sitting and dinning in the huge veranda enjoing the garden. We liked it a lot - Perfect! The location - was perfect too - a very short walk from the beach and next door to the very nice 'Zorba's Taverna' Thanx to Spiros and Maro - We rate this vacation - 10 out of 10 Amit and Zohar

We had a great time in Stavros in the house of Spyros. We were really surprised how much space we had in and around the house. We had an heartwarming welcome from Spyros and his wive Mari. They were always availble for questions. The house has everything you want for a relaxing hollyday. Its beautiful designed. The equipment is good. The garden is great, even with a shower! To the sea its just a 100 meter walk. We will remember this as one of the best hollyday locations ever. So we are very thankful to Spyros and Mari for there hospitality.

Einfach super! Das Haus ist wirklich wunderschön und mit zahlreichen liebevollen Details versehen. Alles war sehr sauber und Spiros hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen. Bei unserer Ankunft fanden wir einen ganzen Korb voll frischer Orangen vor und Spiros stand uns auch während des weiteren Aufenthaltes mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. In Realität ist das Haus fast noch schöner als auf den Fotos. Die große Terrasse und der Garten (mit Feigenbaum ;-) und Parkmöglichkeit) runden die ganze Sache perfekt ab. Auch der Strand vor der Haustüre ist wirklich klasse, kristallklares Wasser und eine wahnsinnige Kulisse mit dem hinter der Bucht liegenden Berg. Insgesamt hatten wir eine super Zeit in Stavros und können diese Unterkunft absolut weiterempfehlen!! Vielen lieben Dank für alles und auf hoffentlich bald, Saskia
