Kokkini Hani.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well equipped and had a lovely sun terrace. The owners Manolis and Evi were great hosts, very welcoming and most obliging. The bus service was excellent, we visited all the major resorts on the coat by bus. We will definitely return.

A lovely apartment, very handy for the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent 2 very relaxing weeks in apartment Number 8 and would be very happy to return.

We were greeted on arrival by Manolis who provided very good customer service, pointing out local facilities and areas of interest.

The apartment was very clean and well equipped. There were plenty of good quality towels and bedding provided for our stay. A large terrace that receives the sun all day runs across the width of the apartment however wooden shutters can be closed to keep the apartment cool. A small front patio provided a shaded seating area throughout our stay.

The cabin bunks in the lounge are full single bed size and there is a washing machine beside the fridge which is not shown in the photos above.

The resort is quiet but there are many tavernas / restaurants / bars. The nearest beach is only a few minutes from the apartment, there are sheltered bathing areas and a footpath runs along the sea front connecting the beaches.

There is a very reliable bus route which runs from Heraklion all the way along the coast to Malia and beyond. The bus stop is about 100 metres from the apartment. The fare to Heraklion is 2 euro each way and the bus station is located in the tourist area by the port.

Great apartment, wonderful service.

  • 5 of 5

We returned on the 12th September after a wonderful holiday and would be very happy to return.

My husband and I rented the one bedroomed apartment No.8 which is at the back of the building. The apartment was clean tidy, well equipped, with plenty of towels and bedding. It has a huge terrace at the back accessed from both the bedroom and lounge and a small front patio.

The resort is a charming place, quiet but with many restaurants and bars. The nearest beach is only a few minutes from the apartment and there are many more a short distance away.

If you do not wish to hire a car there is a very reliable bus route which runs from Heraklion all the way along the coast, with a stop just opposite the apartment.

The real bonus is the owner Manolis, a real gentleman for whom nothing was too much trouble. Our booking was handled promptly and efficiently and we felt totally confident. He met us outside the apartment with a friendly welcome. Manolis is very knowledgeable about his beautiful island and will give very reliable information and recommendations.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

This was a fantastic apartment. Clean, close to the bus stop, right next to a large grocery store, and Manolis was extremely helpful with recommendations and booking us a taxi and checking us in online for our flight out. The one drawback was that the kitchen didn't have basic ingredients such as salt and pepper or any other spices, and I can imagine that the apartments at the front of the building would be loud from the traffic on the main road. All in all, great location, great value, and very friendly, prompt, service. Would definitely return!

Kapsetakis studios, Kokkini Xani, Crete

  • 5 of 5

After a very pleasant stay in the Kapsetakis studios during the summer of 2012, we were happy to return for a second year.

Located in Kokkini Xani, on the north shore of Crete, these self-contained units are very clean, comfortable, spacious, and very well maintained by owners Evi and Manolis Kapsetakis.

The town of Kokkini Xani offers quiet beaches, as well as a number of restaurants to suit any budget. From very inexpensive (but very good) local take-away food – to exceptionally good (but still modestly priced) tavernas – but no multinational fastfood outlets. Ask Evi or Manolis for recommendations. (We did, and enjoyed their suggestions enormously.)

There are several car hire agencies in town, but for those who prefer to leave the driving to someone else, the town is also just 20 minutes by comfortable, air-conditioned coach from Heraklion – from which regularly scheduled and modestly-priced coaches provide service to all of the major sites and towns on this magnificently beautiful island.

After a day’s travels, or a visit to the beach less than a five minute walk, these self-catering units are a quiet and enjoyable place to which to return. (The studios are also a safe 25 km. distance from Malia – the infamous party town popular with young binge-drinking Brits and those who prefer to holiday surrounded by endless souvenir shops and Irish pubs.)

Exceptionally warm and hospitable hosts, Evi and Manolis went out of their way to ensure that, once again, our stay made for a wonderful and enjoyable holiday. From helpful advice about where to buy the best local produce, to suggestions about what to see, where to go – including very useful tips on how to get there and the best times to go – their very kind and friendly manner will be warmly appreciated by any who wish to discover – and enjoy – the many pleasures that Crete has to offer.

Our first stay was so enjoyable that we went back.

Thank you the owners Evi and Manolis for their exceptional hospitality.

Perfect location for exploring the island,even by local bus.

We would definately recommend it.
