Newly built studio in the area of Karteros, very close to Heraklion airport, with wonderful view of mountain and Sea , in a peaceful environment, inside an olive grove, in walking distance from the beach and close to the Airport.
It is ideal to explore the island and relax.

The space

Spacious and furnished with IKEA products. We have put every effort to use quality materials and all are quality appliances that we would use for our home. Our intention to make you feel comfortable. Also Please note that our house is one of the few accurately located in the map in the area. So what you see is exactly what you get.

Guest access

Very easy and as close as it gets to the airport, without the noise though...Beach is close (10-15 minutes walk), shops and restaurants also in the same distance. Bus route to Heraklion twice a day passing in front of the apartments. Ideally located to use also the national road to/from Chania and Lasithi (Elounda-Agios Nikolaos). Best option to enjoy the area to the maximum is to have a car, next best choice is a bike, which we can arrange a rental for you for a premium price.

Interaction with guests

We have a rule to leave you rest and in your peace. However we can offer extras to our guests for a small fee, like the bike rental you might need, or we can arrange you for car rental from an agent we work with.

We kindly request our guests to respect our little property and keep it clean and without any damages as we are going to request any repair or damage made from them. The property is in the country side, within an olive grove, as most people living in the country we love pets, and we care about the dogs of the neighborhood.

Very nice place, in a very good location. It's 10 min ride from the airport and 12 minutes from Heraklion centre. Quiet and clean, exactly what we needed. We didn't get the chance to meet Alex in person due to pur late arrival, however, communication with him wss excellent and quick. He event sent us the coordinates to find the place in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps and it was really helpful as it's a bit tricky to find. We will definitely come back. Thank you Alex

Alex and his wife welcomed me in a friendly way and promptly handed me the key even though I think I was a bit early .. :) I stayed only one night and I enjoyed it. The self-contained apartment is very spacious, decorated with good taste and in a modern way and WiFi worked beautifully. Everything was clean and new or new-looking. I also liked the fact that I could park my rented car internally. Highly recommended for a cheap and fully equipped accomodation if you are spending some days visiting around Heraklion / Knossos.

Once again, I had nothing but a pleasurable experience staying at Alex's apartment. The room itself has everything you require, very clean and tidy and away from the noise of the city. Alex was incredibly friendly and helpful, arranging taxis to the property and back into town the following day. Don't hesitate in using.

Apartment was excellent, exactly as advertised. Very close to the airport and to Heraklion itself, only a short cab journey away. Alex and his wife were excellent hosts and helped us with our taxi from the airport and into the port in Heraklion the following day. We will be staying with Alex again before our holiday is over and will have no worries whatsoever in doing so.

We spent only 1 night at Alex's apartment as we had a late flight arrival so needed somewhere near the airport that was available for 1 night only. This was perfect! The apartment was only about 15 mins drive from the airport (probably shorter but we weren't used to the roads!) and had everything you could need for a 1 night stay or longer. Alex provided good directions and although we didn't get the chance to meet Alex as we arrived late, we were very happy to just sleep! Alex replied to messages very quickly. It's set in a lovely little olive grove, very quiet and very clean. Would recommend!
