Interaction with guests
Our hosting style really depends on our guests. Either myself (Manolis) or my father (Michalis) will always be available if guests need any type of help. We are happy to interact with you while making any type of reccomendation. We have both grown up in Crete and we try to be as knowledgeable as we can about the area. Please ask us anything that comes to mind! Of course we are aware that not all guests wish to be interactive with hosts. We value our guest's privacy and we respect guests who just want to be left alone.
