We had a one bedroom apartment on the first floor of this low rise block which is very close to the beach and harbour;the path is quite steep in places.
The apartment was just as descibed and photographed on the website.
The owners were readily available and offerred really useful advice and ideas for us to make the most of our holiday.

Stayed in March 2010 for a few days and was looking for a cheap, basic but clean accommodation in a central location and could not have found better than the Karoline Apartments. The apartment was basic but had everything we wanted, and has a fantastic location overlooking Kalives and the sea. It is situated up a steep hill, but we were aware of this and gave us some good exercise after making the most of the lovely greek food! Janet and her husband (the owners) were extremely hospitable and very helpful. If we were to visit again, we'd definitely go back again and would recommend this place to anybody.

We had been to Kalives 4 times in the early 90's, always with Kosmar. So due to their demise we booked independently. How glad we were that we chose the Karoline Studios! Stunning view over the bay and only a short hop to the beach down a steep path. The English owners are lovely and very helpful and made our stay all the more enjoyable. The rooms are cleaned daily, except for Sunday. Plenty of books to borrow, even a big trunk of toys for children. As there was just the two of us, we had a studio on the ground floor, we found it had plenty of cupboard space and a useful mosquito net. Had a look at the apartments upstairs, they are spacious and very well equipped and are accurately portrayed on their website. If we go back to Kalives we would not hestate to stay here again.

The apartment block consists of varying sized apartments, allowing flexible booking arrangements for families. If we had the teenagers with us, we would have booked two studios. As we were a couple on our own, out of season, we "treated ourselves" to an apartment with a double bedroom. The web site is very good, with accurate photos and descriptions. It is all as lovely and scenic as it looks!
It is up an incline from the main square, but again, this is not hidden in the description. There is also a short cut to the beach which is only a few minutes walk.

Extra info about our visit:

Following the collapse of XL/Kosmar, we needed to book independantly to visit friends in the area of Kalives.
We had been to the area several times before and know Kalives well, but had been cosseted with flights and transfers from Chania before.
We booked flights from Birmingham to Heraklion and hired a car from flisvos in Kalives, they met us at Heraklion airport terminal and would have escorted us back to the airport if we wished.
The cost for a week was roughly the same cost as the return taxi fares. (200 E) Lovely friendly service from them also - www.flisvos.com. Do email for a quote though, rather than take the pre-taxes prices from the web page.
