About the Owner

John and Christine Warwick. He is British, she is French/Italian. We both fell in love with Crete, the island, the weather, the locals and their Cretan hospitality. We had visited many other European Countries but never felt as comfortable and at ease as in this part of Western Crete. We had been looking for somewhere to buy and to share with our friends and extended family so when the opportunity arose we had no hesitation. We want our visitors to share the enjoyment we have experienced in this part of Crete and will endeavour to give you as much information as possible to ensure you a wonderful holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On arrival we found the apartment to be exceptionally clean, the advert does not do the place justice. We were a group of four adults and had plenty of space to move round every where. The beach is veryclean and quiet. There were loungers in the apartment to take down To the beach which was great. A fantastic Super Market is right across the road. We walked down into the town every night which took about 15 minutes where you could find numerous restaurants and bars. The local bus. Stops just a few feet from the apartment.. There is nothing more you could want from an apartment for your holiday, I will certainly have no hesitation in staying here again.

Modern, comfortable condo on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, views, and amenities at this condo. The unit is quite modern and spacious. Kalyves is a charming town and the people were very welcoming. We had some wonderful, inexpensive meals with great service, and enjoyed walking through the town and on the beach. It was nice to stay close to, but not in Hania, and we loved our visit to that city. Christine was very responsive and provided much information to make our stay more enjoyable.

Lovely clean apartment only a few metres from a beautiful sandy beach. The apartment is modern and very well equipped. There is a property manager locally, who was very helpful, providing us with an extra walking guide. We managed to visit a different taverna almost every night; there is lots of choice, even though Kalyves is a fairly quiet location.

excellent beach front location

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of two adults and 4 kids ages 8-16. The apartment was perfect for us. It was clean and well appointed. The beds were comfortable and the many balconies made for easy access to the outside. It was located right on a very nice beach and to a grocery store so there was no need to drive anywhere.

If the family visits Crete again, I would not hesitate to book this location again. It suited us perfectly.

Very good location and very accurate description.

  • 5 of 5

Kalyves is an ideal location for a very relaxing holiday , away from the crowd and the people are very friendly. The property is ideally situated, on the beach , close to the shop and just outside Kalyves where you can easily walk . The property is very well equipped and you will find everything you need to have a home away from home

Good to be back !

  • 5 of 5

Spent another great fortnight in the Warwick's apartment in Kalives. This was our third visit over the space of 5 years. Good location on the edge of a 'real' village, where you can spend time over a Mythos outside the bar in the centre, watching the world go by. Good beaches and a wide choice of tavernas in the village, all offering good food at very reasonable prices, with friendly service thrown in. We hired a car and enjoyed driving through the mountains to the south and west coasts. So much to do and see in the area that a third visit doesn't seem repetitive. Enjoy a boat trip from Chania or Kissamos, or a wander through the narrow streets and harbour side in Chania or Rethymnon. All this and a supermarket just across the road ! Highly recommended.

Location

From the Owner

Regarding Crete, I fell in love with the island the first time I came to visit and this triggered our desire to buy a property there. I am myself Italian and French and Crete reminded me of both Cote d'Azur and Toscana before these places were spoiled to some extent by overbuilding and mass tourism. Western Crete is considered the most traditional part of Crete. We are at easy reach from the wonderful old Venetian town of Chania (La Canea) as well as Rethymno with its Turkish legacy. Our apartment is modern and well equipped and YES right on the beach with direct access to the beach through the 16 apartment complex. Taverna 2 minutes away, Supermarket opposite. Location, location, location !

Facilities

From the Owner

The apartment benefits from a sea view and an access from the communal area direct to the beach. This means no road to cross to get your feet into the sand and you will almost feel like you are in a private beach with golden and fine sand. You will enjoy having your meal on the balcony with view on the sea unless you prefer to indulge yourself in one of the many local taverns within walking distance. Indeed you don’t need a car to stay in our apartment since all the amenities are within easy reach and yet the property is still remote enough from the core of Kalyves to ensure a peaceful stay. The bus stop to Chania, Rethymno and Heraklion is near by. Chania is just at 20 minutes and should you want to have a night out in its old buoyant Venetian harbour, a taxi is easily organised.
