What customers say about us.

Idealer Ort für eine Auszeit... Wir haben 16 Tage in wundervoller Ruhe bei George verbracht und uns super erholt. Das Apartment hat genau unseren Erwartungen entsprochen und liegt in einem schönen Olivenhain mit Blick zum Meer. Die Nachbarorte Palekastro und Agathias sowie die herrlichen Strände Kouremenos und Chiona sind in ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. George ist ein großartiger Gastgeber, der uns schon beim Check-In mit einer Flasche seines eigenen Olivenöls überrascht hat und sich im Laufe des Aufenthalts als enthusiastischer Rockfan mit enzyklopädischem Musikwissen erwiesen hat. Diese Leidenschaft lebt er täglich in seiner Musikkneipe "Sticky Minds" in Palekastro aus, wo auch wir einige Abende bei toller Musik verbringen durften. George, vielen Dank für alles, wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder! Stefanie + Jens

Une très bonne surprise.. Nous avons passé quelques jours à sunrise apartment et nous avons été conquis par ce petit coin de paradis, loin de la civilisation et en même temps tout près du village de palekastro et de ses plages. Quel calme et tranquillité, un havre de paix au milieu des oliviers..Le propriétaire, charmant, se fera un plaisir de vous informer sur les lieux que vous souhaiteriez visiter, vous serez bien accueillis et il vous offrira certainement de l'huile d olive de sa production. La maison est très propre et fonctionnelle. Vraiment,une adresse hors des sentiers battus qui vous fera découvrir la vie crétoise.

A real taste of Crete... "A place for those who love the nature. for popular amusements look elsewhere. Close enough to beaches to enjoy short walks, far enough to enjoy skies, winds and cicadas. If one wants a true rest that’s a destination, one is almost on one's own. Clean and cozy."

Per chi non ha grandi pretese.. Appartamento grazioso ampio con bagno privato a 400 metri dai locali e dalla spiaggia. Locato su una piccola collinetta, i proprietari erano molto gentili anche se non parlavano inglese. L'unico neo erano gli infissi che facevano rumore a causa del forte vento, il che disturbava il sonno
