Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

It is a stone building, which was built in the 30's and was used as a grocery store by my grandmother after her husband’s death, to keep her and her three children. It was abandoned in the 60’s and was converted into a house by my parents in the late 80’s. It is located in one of the most picturesque villages of the prefecture of Chania, Kefalas, and it overlooks the White Mountains.

Michael was a great host, always ready to help yet not disturbing his guests. Thanks for all the tips and detailed descriptions (specially that (Hidden by Airbnb) maps) about what to do in Crete. It is more then helpful here as the Greek/Latin letters conversion is not that strai…

Response from Michael:
You were so brilliant guests. I have to apologise once more for the slow dripping from the pipes and the malfunction of the electric cooker. I want to assure you the the plumber made at last his work properly and that the electric cooker has been already replaced by a brand new one! So if you return sometime at the sunny Crete and wish to host you again you will find everything absolutely functional! :)
