We are a couple and live since 2006 on the beautiful island of Crete. We rent studios and operate a small PADI Dive Resort. Our complex is 400m from the sea and has a nice pool.
The house is on a large plot in the middle of nature in the south east of the Island. We are looking very forward to meet nice people from all over the world!

Help in the house
Our house is in the middle of nature, so you can get to know all the herbs and plants of Crete.
In spring we need help for painting, renovation and gardening.
German, Slovak, English (not perfect)
A room with your own bathroom, common kitchen. And lots of space around.
As our house is just 400m from the sea, you could have fun at the beach.
You can use our mountain bikes, have a trip to the town. Go to the traditional market on Saturdays.
There are scores of beaches on the island. They range from small, stone shingle beaches to long stretches of glistening sand. You can camp on them or just visit for a few hours. Some are crowded, with umbrellas and bars, and some are totally secluded.
Experience the Crete kafeneion. The kafeneion (coffee shop) is a age-old institution in Crete. Village life centers around these places. If you find yourself in a small village stop and have a coffee, a beer, a raki, or an ouzo at one.
Tavernas are as prevalent as kafeneia. They are everywhere along the sea in tourist towns, but try to find a small one in a small village where there is no menu. A lunch or dinner at one of these places can take hours, and gives a true look at the island's tradition of hospitality.
Ancient and sacred trees, Numerous locations on Crete. Explore Crete in a unique way. Take a pilgrimage around the island visiting sites where sacred and ancient trees still survive, some over 2000 years old. Each tree and location has a fascinating story to tell.
