Holiday Rental House
Newly built studio in the area of Karteros, with wonderful view of mountain and Sea (just opposite Dia Island), in a peaceful environment, inside an olive grove, in walking distance from the beach. It is ideal to explore the island and relax. The studio is placed in a traditional Cretan Olive grove in Karteros. Karteros has to offer unique landscape, just outside of Heraklion city. You can visit all the museums and antiquities, return home to relax, and just walk to the beach. Or you can endulge yourselves to exploring the nearby Gorge, or relax at night and have a BBQ. Listening only the night...The studio sleeps comfortably 4 people in one real double bed and in one double futon bed. Easy access, 5 minutes from the airport, 10 from heraklion port, practically next to national road entry ...Newly built studio in the area of Karteros, with wonderful view of mountain and Sea (just opposite Dia Island), in a peaceful environment, inside an olive grove, in walking distance from the beach.

Easy access, 5 minutes from the airport, 10 from heraklion port, practically next to national road entry exit to Chania and Lasithi (west and east crete). Numerous beaches all around. You have your own garden and shared secured parking space, also there is a shared BBQ area. We live in a house just above the studio, having a large garden to separate us, with fence. Therefore you maintain your privacy and comfort, yet we are there if you need anything, to help or provide (from advice or a cup of coffee...). We cultivate some vegetables to taste, and there is a large fig tree to try as many figs you wish. The quiet and tranquility is the factor that makes Karteros unique. Plus if you want noise and action you are a short drive from it (Heraklion 7 minutes drive, Hersonissos 15 min. drive, Malia 20 minutes drive etc.). Lots of nice sandy beaches, with sun beds and umbrellas are all around, to enjoy the sea with children or without. Public transport is close by (the bus stop is 20 meters away) and there is twice a day a bus passing. The area is not of heavy traffic rather scarce traffic therefore no frequent public transport, yet there is one if this helps. We strongly suggest to rent a car to enjoy the island to maximum. The studio is brand new, all furnished with IKEA furniture, quality electrical equipment, happy and colorful, pet friendly if you have your favorite pet with you. Ideal for value for money long term vacations for families or couples.More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this studio for a week. I had e-mailed Alex about a week before our arrival. He gave us the exact coordinates of the studio. It was easy to find using GPS. He told us that the studio would be open on arrival. It was indeed so. We immediately noticed that there was only one big blanket on the bed. We like to sleep with seperate blankets and only one would have been too cold (we arrived at the end of October), so I sent a whatsapp message to Alex. He told he would be there in about an hour, and he was. Took some blankets from the other studio next to this one and left immediately. Ok, he had the courtesy to say hello and to tell us to contact him if there was any trouble, but that's it. No information on the studio, nothing. We did not see him again, even when we left. The studio was dirty: ever square inch of the floor felt fatty, there were hairs from former costumers findable in both kitchen and bathroom, some of the cups were sticky, the sandwich toaster was without doubt used and not cleaned. I asked Alex for a floorcloth, he promised me that I would have one the following day, but never got one. Ok, I could have asked him again, but I was a little reluctant to clean the place myself and thought "It's just a few more days and I will not have to walk on this floor again". There are a few more things that I could complain about, such as a way too small (1m40cm wide) wobbly bed, but my girlfriend tells me I am spoiled. Furthermore, I think that one should not expect a very comfortable place for this low price. The location of the studio is great, if you have a rental car or a car of your own. Just a few minutes driving and you find a beach. A Lidl supermarket is maybe 10 minutes driving away. The center of Herakloin you can reach in 15 minutes. A(nother) disadvantage of the studio is that it has no windows that you can open. As an asthma patient who kind of needs fresh air, this was not so nice. In conclusion, if you collect stranger's hairs and like to get fatty feet just after you have showered, this place is for you the place to be. If you happen to find any ginger hairs, they are probably ours as we are a ginger couple! Now a little more serious: for the money the place is ok. One thing I forgot to mention: the wifi connection is great. It didn't work one day, Alexios contacted the company about if after we had sent a text message. Apparently the bad weather took it down. He apologized for the inconvenience in text message.

I am sorry you had this impression on our property. The studio is professionally cleaned before arrival and after departure, therefore I consider your comments on "fatty floor" (by the way how can the floor be "fatty" if you mean slippery it must have been by the cleaning liquid that might have not been mopped well...). Anyway every year we try to improve so we check the floor more carefully now. Also as per my presence in holiday rentals you do not have a reception although we try to be in constant communication with all our guests and to be present most of the times upon their arrival despite most of the times they arrive very late at night. As for the windows that do not open, this was not hidden in any way so you should check the photos more carefully. I will agree that for the money we are asking the house is not only ok but more than OK as prices in the area especially in hotels during high season are more than double. By the way, there are no ginger hair in the room!

OK. Here's my take on this studio. First of all, we were arriving after dark and were given coordinates by Alex (the manager?) We get to the road, no house number or sign. Nothing to tell you which building you were staying in. I call Alex and he gives some vague directions. Still can't find it. We try one gate. Locked. I called him again and, low & behold, he comes to the gate. But this isn't the property. He directs us down the hill to the studio and says he'll meet us there. We finally find it, he points to the door and leaves! Doesn't show us the place or tell us anything about the place. We go inside and the place is filthy! So my wife was nice enough to clean the place at 23:00. Crumbs all over the counter, dirty bathroom and floors. I call him to tell him that it's filthy and he says that someone just checked out. Yes, the appliances are new and the bathroom fixtures are also, but they need to be cleaned! And to top it all off: there are no windows that open in the studio. You are forced to sleep with air conditioning or suffocate. And when you go out during the day and remove the key the power shuts off. So no AC while you're out. We came back to a room that was 32C/90F! Do not rent this studio. Period.
