What makes this Apartment unique
Pegasos Maisonette is a lovely 2-bedroom apartment ideal for families and couples looking for comfort and peacefulness in a very short walking distance from the sandy beach. Pegasos offers beautiful sea views 350 meters only from the beach of Almirida. All guests can enjoy plenty of traditional tavernas and seafood restaurants in Almirida and the nearby villages, if they like to explore the local sights. Mini markets and cafeterias are easily reachable on foot as well. We with the hospitable owners will arrange everything for a very pleasant stay. We will be very happy to welcome you.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Great stay but not suitable for people with mobility issues.
Great spot but access is via a steep road and the villa has lots of steps. One if our party had knee issues so it was difficult for him to get to and from the village. We didn't hire a car but this would be a sensible option under these conditions. Lovely village, perfect for a quiet family holiday.
Dear Fiona, thank you very much for your stay and for your review. We are very sorry for any inconvenience during your stay and we really hope that everyone at your party generally enjoyed your accommodation and your holidays! Best regards from sunny Crete, Emmanuel and Yannis
Really excellent apartment. The rooms are spacious, all have air con and are fitted with quality furniture and fittings.
The two bedrooms are both the same size (large) and both had balconies, both offering a sea view. The front bedroom has a larger balcony with chairs and a great view of the bay and over the Chania.
The living room is large and features a modern TV, with another balcony and large table. Wifi is available from an Access Point near the pool and is really strong and fast at the front although the back bedroom was a bit weak. Still it is free so just move to the front.
The kitchen is modern (the cooker didn't look as though it had been used) and has the usual fittings, plates etc, that you would find at home. Again the quality of everything was very good.
Finally two bathrooms with showers complete the picture. The showers were very powerfull and the solar water heaters seemed to give a never end supply of hot water.
The apartment was cleaned twice a week with fresh linen and towels. I would say this is just about perfect.
Outside the pool is very large and there are more sunbeds than guests so it is never crowded. We often had the pool all on our own.
The views are great from this apartment, it is a 5 minunte walk down to the sea front with over 12 places to eat, all excellent.
There is a manager (Maria) who lives down below and is both helpful and charming. She has a really friendly spaniel (dog) which likes a little pat on the head when passing by.
Overall I would say that this is the best place we have stayed at in 15 years of renting villas and apartments and we have stayed in some very nices ones before.
Not the almyrida I remembered
Clean and comfortable with outstanding views. A well managed property. Cleaned every 2-3 days, hot water a plenty. Lounge seating could have been a bit more comfortable. The owner was very professional and friendly. The pool was immaculate.
Dear Mrs. Barbara, thank you very much for your accommodation and for your lovely comments. We are happy to see that you were satisfied with the cleanliness and the facilities of the property as well as the hospitality of the owner! We would be happy to have you once again as our guests in Crete! Best wishes, Emmanuel and Yannis TheHotel.gr team
Great town, great apartments, great island
Spent 1 week at Pegasos Maisonettes. Was pleasantly surprised by regular cleaning of the apartment. Exactly as advertised in the pictures. Beautiful views at breakfast and dinner. Very quiet at night. Town is perfect for families. Beach is perfectly calm. Great pool. Only item to note for warning is that its a long 350m walk back from beach as its uphill. But view is worthwhile.
Dear Mr. Jon, kalimera, thank you very much for your stay and your review for Pegasos Maisonettes. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your holidays, the nice views and the town. Many thanks, best wishes from Crete, Emmanuel and Yannis
We would stay here again!
The apartment is fantastic, the friendly community and everything you could want is a short walk away. The building and pool area are immaculate. Maria and her family are wonderful and very helpful. If you wish to see more of Crete, a car is necessary. We enjoyed many excursions to see as much as possible while there but no matter where we ventured, we were always happy that we chose the Pegasos Maisonettes and Almyrida as our vacation home. We would definitely return.
Dear DG, thank you so much for your kind review and for your accommodation. It is lovely to see that you had such a great time at your holidays and you were absolutely satisfied with your stay in the apartment! We would be glad to have as guests back in Chania at any next vacation! Best regards from Crete, Emmanuel and Yannis
