What you will love about this home
It is the perfect place to use as a base to travel Crete. It is located in the middle of the island and in the center of Heraklion.
It is close to museums, archaeological sites, the seaside as well as traditional villages. You can take day trips to 80% of the island. Most of the places to go are at most an hour or two drive. there is a back as well as a front garden where you can chill. It is quite cool so there is no need for air condition even in the heart of the summer. There is free parking in the area and you could easily keep a bike as it is located on the ground floor. 10min drive from the seaside, 10-15 min walk to the center of Heraklion, a bus ride or 10min drive to the ancient town of Knossos and 3min away from the most popular market in Crete.
What you will love in the neighborhood
even though it is located next to a busy road, it is extremely friendly and everything you want is 2-5min away, cafes restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries, markets you name it. Extremely convenient spot.
If you are not using a car, there are bus stops 2-3min away that would take you to Knossos or to the central bus station(15-20min walk) where you can take buses to nearly every place in Crete. Smokers - there is plenty of space for smoking at the front or back garden but not indoors. Pets - it is fine for pets If they are well behaved and you clean after them - you can let them free at the back garden but the front is shared and the next door neighbour (whom we share the front garden with) is not very happy around pets. We prefer guests that will stay a week or more.
