The best view in Crete!
The best view in Crete! We stayed here as 4 adults and one baby. In the maisonettes be aware the twin beds are located downstairs in the kitchen / dining area. There aren't many guest so it was never busy by the pool or in the grounds. A car is essential as it's a steep drive up to the property, for those who like a challenge you could walk down to the beach, or it's a 3 minute drive.

I loved staying at in the maisonette and would definitely come back. The views are spectacular and it is well positioned for access to the east of Crete or the nearest towns.

Poor 2.0
Attenzione, non fatevi ingannare dalla bellissima foto panoramica sul Golfo. La struttura è vecchia, poco curata, stanze con forte odore di muffa, prima di pagare fatevi mostrare la camera, poi valutate voi stessi. Struttura obsoleta

Merveilleux emplacement avec une vue à couper le souffle! Le logement (studio) avait tout le nécessaire, le ménage était fait régulièrement. La piscine était limpide, très bien entretenue avec des endroits ombragés et ensoleillés et un nombre de transats largement suffisant et toujours une vue merveilleuse sur la baie d'Istron.

Fair 4.0
Molto bella la vista e la piscina. Nel monolocale dove alloggiavamo c'era un presistente odore di chiuso e muffa,la doccia funzionava male in pratica un rigagnolo d'acqua abbiamo fatto notare che canali satellitari non funzionavano e che non fuzionava la luce in cucina nulla e' stato fatto per rimediare i prodotti di cortesia in solo del sapone liquido in un dispenser che terminato dopo 3 giorni nessuno si è preoccupato di riempire l' accesso a internet funzionava a singiozzo....sicuramente nessuna attenzione all' ospite

Lieu de charme avec une vue exceptionnelle
Vue exceptionnelle de la maisonnette. Un balcon et une terrasse avec un panorama époustouflant. Bien aménagée. Magnifique piscine. Bon accueil du propriétaire. Voiture indispensable. Un peu éloigné d'agios nikolaos. Plage très proche mais bondée.

Schöne unterkunft mit wunderschöner Aussicht
Istro ist für mich einer der schönsten Orte auf Kreta- wunderschöner Strand, kleiner süßer und ruhiger Ort- perfekt für einen ruhigen Familienurlaub oder auch für diejenigen, die es eher ruhiger mögen. Wir waren das erste Mal in den Kounenos Apartments und würden es auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen! Die wunderschöne Aussicht und der Pool machen den steilen Weg zur Unterkunft wieder gut. Das Einzige, was vielleicht ausgebessert werden könnte, sind die Küchenmöbel, ansonsten gibt es meiner Meinung nach nichts zu bemängeln! Kommen auf jeden Fall wieder !!

Studio avec une très belle vue et le silence
Accueil chaleureux du propriétaire, indique de bonnes adresses de tavernes non attrapé touristes. Le studio surplombe le Golfe, il y a un câble électrique qui passe devant la vue mais cela ne gêne en rien. Son emplacement fait que sommes au calme complet avec les cigales. La piscine est tout simplement géniale. La plage est en descente et s'atteint en 10 minutes à pieds. La literie est parfaite. La climatisation fonctionne très bien. La salle d'eau est très fonctionnelle mais il manque de puissance au jet de la douche. Douche avec parodie coulissante ok. Coin cuisine ok. Ménage ok. Changement des serviettes tous les 2-3 jours.
