What Past Guests Are Saying
Returning as soon as possible!
Connie and John's studio is a 5 minute walk from the sea, and the taverns on the water as well as people who run them offer great food and wonderful hospitality to visitors, at extremely affordable prices.
In fact, they didn't even ask us to pay for the umbrellas and sun beds and brought our drinks and food right down to our sunbeds for us. Coming from Italy, where we usually pay up to 25 Euros a day for 2 sunbeds and an umbrella, that says a lot.
The studio is perfect for two, though we managed to get three people into it by placing a third mattress into the room thanks to the caretakers that added one for us, as our third traveller was a last minute addition. It was crowded with three but definitely doable.
The aC worked well, and we were all very happy to spend a too short week in the studio with its sea views.
No mosquitos! Not one. Yet another plus.
In fact, I'm returning in October, though I just went in august. Luckily, I'm just a 2 hour flight away, and thought this was my first trip to Crete, it definitely won't be my last.
The town of Kalamki is about 7 kilometers from the major city of Chania, a lovely once Venetian outpost, with it's colorful markets, shops, and eateries.
The beach in Kalamaki is somewhat protected from wind and waves, and pretty calm and clear, though even more spectacular beaches can be reached by car and tour bus, anywhere from one to two hour's away. Plenty of things to do on the island, and a car is the best way to go, though there are plenty of other options.
More populated beach towns with large hotels and droves of tourists are set just off to both sides of Kalamaki but my instincts served me well and I felt as though I had landed in the perfect spot. I can't say enough. I'm defninitely a fan.
Just about everyone speaks English fluently on the island, which is also a plus if you're concerned about the language.

We loved the people and the location was great for day trips aro
Antonia, our hostess, was so gracious and friendly. She brought us hand picked oranges, cooked some traditional Greek cheese pie served with honey for us, brought us Greek olive oil from her trees. All the people living in the complex were very helpful. Many spoke English and those who did not would find someone who could translate. We had a rental car and made several day trips going east,west and south of Kalamaki Beach. We loved going into city of Chania shopping and walking the streets of old town; then stopping at the market for the bread. Often the in the morning we would drive to a nearby beach with walking trails to do our Tai Chi Chih as the locals would swim or walk the trails. The studio was a studio (beds and a table)so we didn't spend too much time there. The beds were comfortable; we cooked breakfast; we enjoyed the outside patio for watching the sunset and having a glass of wine at night. Parking was great; stairs to get to the 3rd floor studio; lots of cats and dogs but a real neighbor feel with children riding their bikes; people walking or sitting outside and saying Hello. We feel the price was a real bargin.
