The owner John is a great host providing information on where to visit, eat and shop. He isn't intrusive but always available including picking us up from the airport and taking us back also arranging car hire for us.
The apartment is a few kilometres from Sissi with great views, but close enough by car to the beach, shops and tavernas.
The apartment had all the facilities you would need, the one thing that would improve it even more for us would be air conditioning (obviously this would increase the rent or be an additional payment).
Next time we go to Crete we will definitely stay here again.
