Home truths

    At full occupancy, one guest will be sleeping on a single sofa bed in the living room.

    Your host can provide a cot and high chair for little ones on request.

    The bedroom is at mezzanine level and semi-open to the space below, so privacy is limited.

    This home is spread over two floors with steep, open stairs – it may not be suitable for those with reduced mobility. Young children will need to be supervised on the stairs.

    There’s a workspace here for those needing to catch up on work during their stay.

    Given the home's central spot, expect to hear some street noise throughout your stay. Light sleepers might want to pack earplugs.

    There’s free on-street parking here.

About Heraklion Town

Affectionately dubbed ‘small Athens’, Heraklion is Crete’s largest and most populated city. What started out as a fortified harbour town has grown into a bona fide tourist hotspot, popular for its year-round warm weather and palm-tree-lined seaside promenade. You only have to glance at a photo of its glistening port to understand why this place attracts so many visitors each year, but Heraklion has much more to offer than just...
