Ideal in times when social distancing is recommended. This is part of our grandparents' house, which we have renovated and still use as our own retreat. It is located in Kanevos, a true Cretan village with its calm and tranquility surrounded by the famous mountainous landscape of Crete. Disconnect from hectic schedules and re-connect with oneself and your travel-mates, while grasping the opportunity for hiking, enjoying the night-sky and South Rethymno (e.g. Plakias, Ammoudi, Rodakino, Damnoni).
“I had a wonderful 12 days holidays and really enjoyed Magda and Stella's cosy, clean and WELL equipped house at the end of the quiet village Kanevos. Away from the crowds and in 15 minutes at a beautiful beach, I tried a different one every day. I loved the mountains around the village and the view from the veranda is of a green valley, peaceful and rural. Coming 'home' from a day-trip, picking up a delicious meal from the local Taverna and a little supermarket to get anything you need, with fresh local products aswell. I felt welcome and at ease and Magda was a very good host. She always responded immediately and had original tips. The rocking chair and the comfortable couch, so relaxing ! Plenty of books about the island too. Thank you very much, I will definitely come back : )”

“We had a rest in Astro House II in September 2019. We lived on the top floor with a balcony. A beautiful, bright house - there is everything you need and even more))) All kinds of dishes, microwave, stove, dishwasher, grill for sandwiches, coffee maker, etc. Cozy home decor, 100% clean. The location is good for traveling to any region of Crete. Parking for a car near the house, by the way, you can rent a car from Michael at a very attractive price. We took the Hyundai I20 for 405 euros for three weeks. At the top there is also a terrace with sunbeds and a shower, we did not use it, because left in the morning, arrived in the evening. There are also clothes dryers (two washing machines are available). Linen changed once a week and once a week was cleaned. You can use beach towels, umbrellas, there are a large number of children's toys. The nearest beach (pebble, small, clean, sheltered from waves) with a picturesque church is a 15-minute walk, there is also a tavern with fresh fish. And next to the house is another tavern with a delicious cappuccino and an inexpensive menu. WiFi works well, with a single failure, Michael quickly fixed the problem. Michael at the appointed time met us at the airport, at home we were welcomed with fruits and a bottle of Cretan wine. Michael also treated us with his olive oil and even gave us a bottle of goodbye. A very friendly, hospitable and caring person, we are glad that we are so lucky with the owner, ready to solve all problems and help at any time. Thanks Michael! The only thing that upset us a bit was the rare but loud noise from cars / motorbikes / neighbors morning and evening. But this was to be expected - this is not a villa in the mountains or by the sea, but a house in a Greek village. There is a solution to this problem - closing all doors and windows to the street and turning on an excellent modern air conditioning in the living room. I recommend to all travelers who are interested in traveling and seeing all the beauties of Crete, and there are plenty of them on this wonderful island! I recommend to everyone who is looking for a cheerful, friendly and conscientious host!”
This single room is located on the top of a two stories building less than 5 minutes from the village's center. It has a lovely outer space with a small sitting area with magnificent view.
“The room is small with a big terrace. It is located on the 2nd floor and you can feel the strong gusts of wind which are sometimes caused by the heavy downwind sometimes in this area. Since it can be very loud at night. Everything is very clean. During the day you can sit in front of the house very nicely under big tamarisk trees. The view is fantastic everywhere. There is a small cooking facilities for breakfast or other small meals. Ioanna is very nice and looks after her guests. I was there for a month and felt very well.”
