“Lovely appartments, pure value for money!”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016
people found this review helpful

We just returned from awesome holidays in Creet a few weeks ago, were staying during the period June 17-July7, 2 women and a 9 yo child.

First of all complements to the owner Georgios who goes an extra mail for his guests and always there for you in case anything is needed. We have booked a 2 room appartment that comfortably suits 3 people and has all the self catering facilities including mall kitchen and a frige. Air con worked fine but we didnt use it much , just enjoyed oped windows at night to hear the breeze and waves, the windows were equipped with masquitoe nets (which is on Crete is pretty essential in summer :) Also I have to mention that despite I didnt request it when booking Georgios arranged as a lovely room with a big terrace and sea vew which was an absolutely lovely touch and made our time in the evenings more enjoyable as the setting was beautiful and we had a lil lighthouse in our sight.

It is not our first self-catring experience in Crete and it was our 4th trp. The place definitely offeres great location and value for money though depending on your traveling style the car might be helpful in case you are into sightseeing as Kato Gouvet is a small village so literally there is not much to see there however if you are upto enjoying a "lazy" vacation there are plenty of shops and supermarkets next door to meet your daily needs, also Crete Aquarium, Dinasaur Land and Aqua Park are withing walking distance to arrange some variety or can be reached by bus or cabs wich are affordable.

Besides its awesome hospitality Chrissanthi Sea offeres tranqulity, you seldom cross with other people and during our staying the other clientelle was lovely. We were promised on arrival some cleaning by the lady a few days a week however she came more often and there was continuous chance of sheets and always plenty of fresh towels ))

There a small restaurent (which we initially took for a bar as design looks more like a bar setting) with decent traditional food with plenty of choice however we did cook sometimes ourselves and also went to the neigbouring cafes and bars for meals just for the variety and different atmosphere ))

The swiming pool was a nice contribution though we used it just a few times as children do love swiming pools, never crowded, always clean and fresh so for people who spend some times in "unsalty waters" it could become a lil joy too )

The appartment is literally stand on the sea. It is located right on the local embankment and tough right in front of you there is no beach but a picturesque sight with splashing surf, there are 2 lovely sand beaches a few steps to the right or left, perfect for swim even in a stormy weather as in both lagoons the waters are calm even on a windy weather - perfect for children.

We didnt find faults with the place, we loved it and enoyed every minute! Thanks again to Georgios and his lovely stuff :)
