The space

The beach studio KOLOKITHA is located in the first row 50 ft. from the waterline a small flock of three separated cottages on a beautiful and safe plot of land. (Fenced) Few steps to the sea. Nicely renovated 1 studio cottages with vaulted high ceiling, ca. 400 sq.ft. (about 37 square meters), large comfortable double bed (King size), separate sofa/bed, view to the sea, inside and outside eating area, built in kitchen, separate windowed bathroom with marble tiling, Shower, sink, toilet. Studio room has full A/C. Private outside Gazebos with table and chairs, with unobstructed view to the sea. Shared large sunbathing terrace with old trees, sunbeds, shower directly on the beach. It would be hard to be closer to the sea or in a more relaxing spot with the soft sound of the waves around you. And it would be hard to find such a safe location far away from the big cities but still in short walking distance (ca. 650 ft, ca. 200m) of a friendly little fishing village with many original tavernas and cafes. A bus stop close.

Everything was great. The house was fully equipped, spacious and quiet. The fridge had many things waiting for us and there was also a barbeque at the terrace which was great. We could hear the sea at night like we were sleeping on the beach. The hosts are professionals, very helpful and understanding (considering we had a toddler with us). The beach has very clear waters but the large stones made difficult the walking. You need rubber shoes. In spite that we liked everything, especially the location, and we are definitely going back.

The beach cottage was just as advertised. beautiful beyond words! Natalia communicated directions and all the necessary information prior to our arrival. Ron met us and helped us find where to park, and offered plenty of suggestions for places in Plaka. The refrigerator was stocked with all we needed for the next day, which was so convenient since we arrived very late at night. thank you so much for a wonderful stay in a beautiful setting.

Woooow! Location location location. Direct in front of Spinalonga island. We could not find a better adress. We were without world. This is a place to spent vacations. Unfortunately, we were ther only 4 nights but we would say this place is is an easy week minimum. Nice places, friendly local people's, a lot to visit we will come back soon. Magnifique endroit en face de Spinalonga île mythique pour plusieurs raisons. Ne chercher plus, cet endroit est à faire rêver....

This apartment was perfect for relaxing at Plaka beach. Our only concern was that the wifi was not fully functioning but I'm sure the host will correct this by next visit. All in all a great location and vacation! We would highly recommend this location for people that are interested in being close to the water and having an amazing view. Special thanks to Christine for making us feel so welcome!

What a wonderful oasis in Crete! We couldn't have been more happy with the beautiful cottage in Plaka. Very spacious, clean and much prettier than the photos. And the terrace...well it is stunning with the views overlooking the bay and Spinalonga. We had such privacy that was really nice for sunbathing and just lounging on our terraces. Also, Plaka is such a beautiful little village that is just 5 minutes walking distance. It is a stone beach and honestly, it is great because you are not dragging in sand and also the snorkeling was the best here and we made it all over the island. There were wonderful taverna's...and Captain Longo's for cocktails. We had dinner in the village every night...with the exception of going to Santorini for an evening. We can't thank Natalia and Christine enough for all of their help. From the very first emails until our arrival at 1:00 in the morning, everything was great. So helpful and informative...even had lovely groceries to make a greek salad, pasta and snacks for our first day. Thank you so much for such a relaxing and beautiful holiday and we look forward to our return next year and hopefully for 2 weeks...could have stayed forever in our cottage!!!

Nous avons adoré notre séjour dans le studio de Natalia. Un soin admirable du détail caractérise ce logement. Ainsi, à notre arrivée, le frigo était rempli de tout le nécessaire pour les premiers repas: pâtes, légumes frais, jus, lait, fromage, pain, yogourt, bière, etc. Des serviettes de plage étaient également fournies. La situation du studio est idéale: tout près de Plaka, mais tout de même assez en retrait pour profiter du calme, et avec le bruit des vagues sans cesse à nos oreilles, vagues elles-mêmes visibles par la fenêtre. Une terrasse ombragée venait clore le tout, et rendre notre séjour parfait. Avant notre arrivée, Natalia a répondu avec diligence à nos messages et, sur place, son ami Ron nous a accueillis chaleureusement.

Unsere Gastgeberin hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen. Die kleine Appartmentanlage ist wunderschön in der Bucht gelegen und der eigene Zugang zum Meer und das glasklare Wasser waren überwältigend, schöner als die Fotos es versprochen haben. Auch die Ausstattung des Zimmers und der Terrasse war perfekt. Ganz kleines Manko war das schlecht funktionierende W-Lan und die Betreten-Verboten-Schildchen am Zugang zu der Anlage, die am letzten Tag angebracht wurden und uns etwas das Gefühl gegeben haben, ausgegrenzt zu sein von den Besuchern des Strands bzw. diese auszugrenzen, was nicht nötig war. Wir haben uns so schon sehr privilegiert gefühlt auf der sonnigen Terasse. Alles in allem war es einer der schönsten Aufenthalte seit Jahren und 100%-ig empfehlenswert. Es fehlt an nichts und auch das angrenzende Dorf hat alles an Köstlichkeiten zu bieten, die das Herz begehrt. Man kann hier ohne weiteres eine ganze Zeit lang glücklich sein ohne den Ort wechseln zu müssen. Vielen Dank dafür!
