With the hour drive to Rethymnian, he informed us of the island and the history. Getting to the apartment, it was right in the middle of everything. Amazing view of the water! Marinos...

We stayed in the Agora Suite for six nights in April and loved everything about our stay! The location was great, the apartment was beautiful and had everything we needed and Marinos was a wonderful host. We would definitely stay here if we are ever lucky enough to visit Crete again!

From the time of booking Marinos was the perfect host. Our 4 night stay was wonderful. Not only did Marinos help us with all of our luggage (we had lots as we are on the road kite surfing for 8 months with a 4 year old in tow) but he went out of his way to answer all our questions...

Can not recommend this property highly enough. Marinos was the PERFECT host- ensuring ALL of my questions were answered prior to our arrival, gave some really great tips and even helped arrange a hire car. The accommodation itself is flawless. Impeccably clean, with the most amazingly comfy bed- and Marinos has thought of everything you may need. (He even brings...
