Just back from a week at Summer Lodge; very peaceful and quaint guesthouse, the owners Vassillis & Rebecca were welcoming and helpful. Local beach at the end of a little lane, very picturesque and quiet. Bus service to busier resorts easily accessible and less than 2 Euros.
Its simple, authentic & lovely

Room Tip: some rooms have a shared balcony so if you want a private one ask

From the moment we arrived at the Summer Lodge until the time we left the staff was amazing, always cheerful and helpful despite working long hours. Our room overlooked the orange grove and the swimming pool was simply furnished but there was a fridge, a safety box and a cooling fan. Free Wifi was much appreciated. The room was cleaned, bed linen and towels changed twice a week. Thanks for organizing our excursions and transfer to the airport. An amazing, relaxing week at a highly recommended guesthouse.

Room Tip: Upper floor if you want more view. Rooms on the ground floor enjoy cooler evenings

Friendly greeting with a glass of fresh orange juice from the owner as we arrived which made us feel welcome. Rooms were basic but the whole place was clean and we had cleaning with fresh towels and linen twice a week. There is a little fridge to keep your drinks cool and free WiFi available. The cooling fan in the bedroom was also welcoming. Very nice pool and a garden bar were breakfast is served. 5 mins walk to the beach and a choice of restaurants around the place. Convenient bus service until late at night and despite all these articles on the media about the financial or the refugees' crisis, allow me to say that they are just stories as it is fun and perfectly safe the whole destination. I would return to this guesthouse and would recommend a visit to my friends. The owners are exceptionally nice and make you feel very welcome at all times. They even printed out our boarding passes for free. Thank you for the tour arrangements and the lovely stay !

Room Tip: All rooms are fine, those on ground floor are a bit cooler.

In the end of september we had a great time in summer lodge. At first we've got a room at the roadside which was very noisy, but as soon as available we got another room. From that time on, for us it was the best hotel around, among all the big luxury expensive ones nearby to Chania. Summer lodge is small and authentic with a friendly garden, terrace, pool and last-but-not-least very friendly boss with his wife and family. Because of the small scale you easily make contact with the rest of the guests which can provide interesting chats and information about the island (handy for desiding what to visit next). The boss has always a good mood ("how you're doing today mr. Vasily?" "Absolutely fabulous! Couldn't be better!") with all kind of jokes and his heart at the right place. He loves chatting with his guests and providing a good time.. We had!

The site, the rooms, the environment everything was excellent. Very friendly and helpful owners who gave us important tips for the visit of their island. We had the impression that we were members of the family. We had never been welcomed this way in our life!

Room Tip: Our room was spacious and clean as well as the bathroom and th whole compound.
