“The best holiday apartment I've ever stayed in with the kindest, most helpful owner anyone could wish for”
Reviewed February 2, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The apartment is tastefully furnished with everything necessary for a relaxing stay whatever time of year. We stayed in January and could not fault the facilities,cleanliness and Christina was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Thank you Cristina for all your wonderful help. We hope now our own house is furnished that we will see you at Bossa Nova in Girani when we are next in Crete.

“We are overwhelmed by your kindness”
Reviewed November 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We arrived in Kolymbari looking for somewhere to stay and we were encouraged to stay at Xristinas Apartments by the kind and welcoming Eirene? in the coffee shop downstairs. We were not disappointed as the apartment was quickly prepared for us by Xristina and her generosity whilst we were staying was overwhelming. Thank you so much Xristina and Stavros for all your kindness. Your delicious biscuits, plum jam and lemon preserve lasted for our holiday and we so enjoyed the delicious fruit liqueur as well. Thank you too for all your recommendations. We were going to drop the empty preserve pots back with you on our way back to Iraklion, but we almost inevitably, we ran out of time. We slept so well in your comfortable bed with the crashing waves just beneath us and by the time we continued on our journey to Paleochora two days later, we were very rested. The sun then came out for the rest of our stay and we enjoyed yet another wonderful holiday in Crete.Thank you so much and we hope one day we will return.

“Amazing place for the family vacation!”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I've spent 2 lovely weeks at Xristina's apartment with my wife and 1y.o. son. The location is wonderful - 2 minutes from room door to the see, the beach is clean and not crowded. On the roof there is a best place to rest during hot sun time (umbrella and synthetic grass makes it amazing for little kid). Supermarket and fruits market is 5-10 min by walking, restaurants are just downstairs;)
Xristina gave us a lot of caring and help with all kind of questions during our stay. I would not share all the details just to keep surprise;) one thing I can say - you would feel like you are a part of her family! I leaved today and my family will stay with parents there for 3 weeks more. I'm sure they are in good hands.

“Fantastic appartment and even more fantastic host”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Previous stay was so successful that we just hoped we could be so lucky again. By that we already knew the city and the hosts, this stay got even better! The apartment is beautiful, well kept, clean and has everything needed. First and foremost, it has a great location with sea view, situated on the beach and has Kolymbaris best restaurant on the floor below. The hosts, Xristina and Stavros are so friendly and helpful that we could relax from the very beginning. In addition to bring products from Xristinas own farm, they were very nice and spend time with us so we can get to know a little bit of the culture and people of Crete. They seem genuinely interested in that we should have one pleasant stay. We are so grateful for their efforts to make our stay memorable. We will certainly be back:-)

“Apartment with view of a boat:)”
Reviewed October 25, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Xristina was an amazing host and the apartment was super nice. From the living room and the master bedroom, we literally looked out directly to the deep blue ocean and blue sky... as if we were on a boat! Downstairs along the waterfront, there are lovely restaurants and little stores.

Xristina spent 1 hour when we first arrived to explain to us the area around and give recommendations on where can go etc. She also presented fresh eggs and gifts to take home as memory (olive oil, liqueur and raki)! All from her farm! She is very helpful in giving us tips!

The apartment has 2 bedrooms so is perfect for us with 3 people:)
