Our family home has been restored to it's former glory. Boasting 240sqm of space this unit is a great option for small groups or families, and it can be rented by even 1 or 2 people. This unit offers exclusive use, so no matter if you book 1, 2, or all 3 bedrooms, you will not share with anyone else. Non-booked rooms will be locked. While there is space for more, we will not allow more than 6 guests. We do not want people sleeping in the living area.
The location for Heraklion is prime! You can get no better. A short 500m walk from the port, 750m from the city centre and close access to the airport (3.5km), shopping, coffee bars and restaurants. Even better than living right in town here you have ample parking right outside the house, free and unrestricted, and it's not as noisy at night (bar the aeroplanes in summer which is expected all around Heraklion).
Only 30m down the road you have to visit our friends at "En Plo", Heraklion's premium seafood venue (they do other meals too, and takeaways if you wish to eat in). "En Plo" also keeps the keys for Spanaki 26, and they are open from 11am until late, so fetching and dropping off the keys is easy.
The living area on the ground floor with 3 large reception rooms, comfortable brand new furniture and dining seating for 6. The kitchen is fully equipped. Appliances, crockery, cutlery and all the mod cons in a renovated kitchen where we have retained classic features like the solid marble kitchen sink. The floors are all highly polished mosaic, another classic feature not found in modern homes. Practical and easy to keep clean. There is a large air conditioner serving the reception rooms.
There is a small courtyard outside the kitchen, a great place for a coffee or meal on a hot day, under the shade of the large pomegranate tree.
All doors and windows have shutters, so it's easy to lock them and still keep a flow of fresh air through the house.
All 3 bedrooms are on the 1st floor and have their own private balcony, new high-end pocket coil beds, with Egyptian cotton linen and soft cotton towels are provided. Each room has it's own air conditioner.
The unit has the best in water supply (Heraklion has regular water cuts). We have 2500 liters of storage, high pressure pumps, and a large solar water heater. The guest toilet (downstairs) and main bathroom (upstairs) have recently been redone in top end Villeroy & Boch tiles and fittings, and there is a shower only (no bath). We also have an open air shower on the 2nd floor Terrazza which is a great place to cool off after sunbathing on the loungers provided.
The laundry room is also on the 2nd floor, with washer and air drying facilities, ironing board, etc. We can also supply our maid service for a very reasonable 5 euro per hour.
Views - from the upper floors great views to the city and the port. Each bedroom has it's own balcony with views
Wifi is free and available throughout the house.
TV? Nope. We don't like TV on holiday and don't expect you will miss it either.
We hope you will try out Spanaki 26 for your next visit to Heraklion. Heraklion may not have beaches right close by, but it's a great base to explore the island from, with easy access to reasonably priced restaurants and avoid the over priced package tour venues. The city centre is buzzing, each and every night, and in the daytime you have quick access to the port or highway to get out of the city.
