The magnificence of the view and the enormous size of the balcony are beyond any doubt. The natural kindness of the hosts is also very obvious.
However, the quality of the service is way under the price it's been paid for. When you're in a guest house and your hosts live just downstairs, you expect them to make you feel at home without asking them for this; by this, I don't mean come up and tuck your bed, but at least provide us with toilet paper and a comfortable bed for the eight person, instead of an old sofa. Even though Peter was always kindly ready to bring us to the mall for groceries (as it was said on the website), the extra money you pay for the service, that nearly doubles the price of a stay (especially in Crete) to almost 150€ per night, wasn't at all adequate but very disproportionate. And there is no wifi in the apartment, or a very poor one at times, or in the stairs.
The best host is the one you do not need to ask anything to.
With regard to the so called "old sofa", this is in fact a brand new sofa
bed, which Noe was shown when he came round to inspect the
apartment, before making the booking.
We of course provide enough toilet paper for the first few days but this is
a self catering letting and the tenant must make his own arrangements
for replenishing such items.
As to service, I don't know to what he refers . We specifically state on our
website that we do not offer room service. The whole apartment was
cleaned and inspected the day before Noe's party arrived.
Certainly, we would not normaly expect to have to stay up 'til 3.00am in
the morning to receive our guests but we did this without complaint.
On the last night of their stay, Noe brought an additional gang of eight
people to party with the eight paying guests on our roof-top balcony .
At about 3.00am at the request of our other guests, who were greatly
distressed by the noise coming from above, I went up and asked them to
keep it down. They continued to party until after 4.00am.
It is a shame that Noe thought this was perfectly in order and that he
did not even need to ask permission to bring all his group over. I should
also bring attention to the house rule that states that there must be no
loud noise or parties after 11.00pm
With regard to price, this was agreed in advance and if he could get a
better price for less than 20Euros/head/night, why didn't he?
With regard to WIFI, there is no problem with this but the service that
OTE give is very slow and intermittant, especially in the busy tourist
season. There is nothing we can do about this but hope for a new cable
in the near future.
We shall not be hosting an unsupervised group of under 20 year olds
Beautiful house in a beautiful quiet place! Peter and Mary are very delicious people. The apartment is really comfortable, large and clean and I think the terrace on Souda Bay is really perfect: beautiful view, large, suitable for relaxing and dinner. In the apartment you will find all the necessary for your stay. It is a few kilometers (about 10km) far from the chaotic centre of Chania, so you will be near the city but in a quiet place. Absolutely recommended.
We had a very nice stay in Kreta. Peter and Mary gave us a warm welcome and where very helpful and kind during our stay. Sometimes they bring they brought us fruit and vegables, we really appriciated their hospitality. The house waa clean and we had enough space. Especially the balcony was very pretty and perfect for our meals and relaxing time in the sunbeds.
We will give you the advice to rent a car so you can visit all the nice places ob this beautiful island. Hope to come back!
