The pictures are accurate; Julie and her husband were friendly and helpful; public motor coach transportation is available from the pier; there are two grocery stores, one next door and one across the road; a butcher shop is a short walk to the left of the property; a nice restaurant is a block away (to the right of the property) Diamantakis (there are additional restaurants), plenty of shopping opportunities; access to the ocean is possible, just have to walk between buildings (but safety is NOT an issue). The draw back for me was the closeness to the road, which is a major thoroughfare. You will hear the traffic and motorcycles.
The location is perfect, right next to beach, a good restaurant, supermarket and aquarium. Plenty of space for our family and nice clean room. We loved it and will come back there next time we are in Crete.
