Great house with all the amenities you could need. We stayed as a group of three friends but there was a cot and other children's items available if you are a family. Anton provided a guide for us before arrival where there were directions and other very useful information. Maleme is a nice small town which has a number of bars, tavernas, supermarket and various other little shops. It's fairly quiet but not far from Platanias which is more lively if you want nightlife etc. It is also a great base to explore the island. We loved it here!

Anton was extremely helpful, polite and communicative to us, aiding our stay greatly. We were given all the information we could need in a comprehensive welcome pack enabling us to feel right at home and access everything to make the most of our stay. We felt like real guests but also as though we were at home in Anton`s house and he thoughtfully provided a selection of Greek treats and produce for us to try; getting in late, it was extremely welcome! The house is modern, and very spacious. We were a party of three and had friends over to stay one night and all were able to stay comfortably. We arrived to find it extremely clean and equipped to a high standard with everything you would possibly need for your trip. Being so modern, the property benefits from two high functioning air conditioning units in the house, something we were initially worried about being english and knowing the local weather to well exceed 30 degrees during the days and into the night, plus the mosquito and insects that infamously inhabit Greece, we were able to maintain a very comfortable temperature whilst deterring any from settling in the house and having to constantly keep windows and doors open etc. We wanted greek beaches and countryside but also to experience some nightlife and the house is well located should you wish to do the same. Maleme, in which the house is based, is a small greek town that is slowly expanding due to the tourism and resort growth that trickles down from nearby Plantania. This can be tapped into if you wish, or avoided and the small traditional greek town feel upheld. There are a few really nice restaurants in Maleme and were delighted to discover some of the best Souvlaki we had tasted in Crete right next to the mini market which were both open until midnight - excellent on the way back from the beach! The surrounding area, which hosts some of Crete`s most beautiful beaches and breath taking scenery with Balos Lagoon and Elafonissi both accessible by car journeys. Also the port city of Chania can be easily accessed by a handy bus service that runs twice upon the hour and nearby Platania - a hub of life and over a mile of shops, bars, restaurants can be reached by bus or walking at a push. Relaxing in the Jacuzzi in the evenings whilst watching the stars, smelling Jasmine in the air and enjoying true tranquility was probably one of the highlights of the trip. We were very sad to leave. Thank you Anton, for a brilliant experience in Crete! Jack, Antonia and Shun.

We are greatful for Anton's hospitality and a possibility to be in a realy quiet, clean and private place for ourselves. The place is very good for a family holiday, we could find anything that we needed (kitchen things, towels, sun beds in the yard...) and our children were happy to find toys. Close to the house there is a very good supermarket and a shop of nice fresh fruit. in the evening it was nice to be in the jakuzzi looking at the stars above and blooming flowers around. We traveled a lot visiting different beaches and villages in the mountains, the location of Anton's house suited as a perfect harbour for that. In Maleme the seashore is not good for bathing but nice for walking in the evening.

We stayed 10 days in Anton's house in maleme and it was a great expérience . The house is very Well fournished and very quiet. Its location is just perfect in the peaceful village of maleme not far away from the beach. It is a very good base to visit all marvelous places around like hania, phalassarma, rodopos péninsula... Also when we arrived we were very pleased to have everything we need for breakfast like tea honey crackers... Last but not least , jaccuzi was very much appréciâted after beach in the evening

Anton's place in Maleme offered us everything we expected and immediately made us feel home. There is plenty of space in and outside the house and it was all very clean and well equipped (there was soap, toilet paper, washing powder, kitchen paper, a box of matches, a few candles, plastic glasses for the jacuzzi (we suggest 38°C) and even a small welcoming package with oil, crackers and so on). Having breakfast outside in the shade and enjoying the silence of the surrounding area gave us power starts for nice trips. And Maleme revealed itself to be a good homebase for daytrips to the West (Kissamos, Falasarna, Elafonisi, Polirinia...) and to the East (Chania Region, Laguna of Stavros and several nice monasteries). Having a big supermarket and a bakery within walking distance you are always able to have fresh fruit and vegetables and even fresh bread for your breakfast. Fresh fish can be bought in Tauronitis, approximately 3km to the west. The Beach can be reached in 5 min, but it is more or less stony there. All in all we were completely satisfied with the place and we can totally recommend it to the air bnb community. Thank you for a great vacation, dear Anton and family!

Hello, I'm Anton.
I like travelling with my family and even though we visited a lot of places around the world but every year we come back to Crete again and again.
We want you also to fall in love with this magnificent island with its white mountains and green valleys of olive groves. My family and me will make cozy and quiet atmosphere in our house for you, your family and your friends.
Welcome to Crete!
