This apartment had everything we needed. Steps from the beach, within sound of the ocean, and a partial sea view. A very pretty church is immediately behind the house whihc helps make up for it. The decor was tasteful and functional. We made full use of the very large outdoor spaces, taking all our meals on the terraces. THe whole building was beautifully restored.
The beds were comfortable. The a/c was good, but we didn't use it too much as we had a lovely cool breeze at night, and ceiling fans. There is no fan in the double twin bedded room. The property has been fitted with the best quality doors, shutters, and windows, so that outside noise is virtually unheard, and there are screens when you want them. We were very impressed with the thought that the owners put in to this property. You will hear the church bells, but they don't go on too long and hopefully you can get back to sleep.
The wifi worked well so my husband was able to get work done. The downstairs shower was useful as it meant two people could shower at the same time. We used it several times a day for rinsing off after the beach. The one bathroom is cramped. The owners have a great supply of beach toys and chairs that guests can use. Very handy.
I have a suggestion. It would be nice if the owner would provide beach towels. We had to buy them and just left them behind. Surely others have done the same. It is a nuisance to have to spend 30€ buying beach towels when they could just be provided.
A rental car would be very useful here. Unless you plan on staying only in Panormaos, it might be a bit limited and unless you have small children, you will want to explore the region. Our two favorite beaches were the very near one by Gerandomos (not sure of spelling) bridge, whihc had fun waves, and one on the south coast, just under an hour away, called Skyria (or
similar). There are several good tavernas in Panromos, but Rethymnon is only 15 minutes away. We are so glad we stayed here, it is an authentic, quiet village with everything you need to have a great holiday, without the artificiality of staying at a hotel resort.
