What does Kokkini Hani House offer?
The beautiful large front house of the Landhuis Kokkini Hani House was completely renovated and modernized in the winter of 2017. Through the gate in the garden you come to the front door. Upon entering the living space falls on: a spacious living room with sitting area and fireplace, a large modern dining table for 8 people and a spacious, modern open kitchen with many amenities, including an induction hob, stove and hood. In the hallway is a modern toilet and in the utility room you can use the washing machine. The original wooden beams in the ceiling have been preserved and give the room extra atmosphere.On the first floor there are three bedrooms. Two large bedrooms with double beds that open onto the covered balcony. On the third bedroom is a so-called small 2-sleeper ('' queen ''), a single bed and a bunk bed. In addition, there is a large bathroom with shower and toilet. All beds have excellent mattresses and new bedding. In January 2018 the renovation of the smaller back house started. This has 2 x 2 persons bedrooms, a bathroom / toilet and a living room with open kitchen. The back house is meant for private but can be booked on request. An important aspect on Crete is the outdoors. That is actually what you do on Crete. This because of the beautiful nature but especially the nice weather from May to November. In the garden there is therefore a large terrace covered by plants, again with a large dining table and a stone barbecue. This place has been used for years as a natural living room. Kokkini Hani House is located 300 meters walking distance from one of the most beautiful beaches of Kokkini Hani. If you take the time, you walk within ten minutes. In terms of location and reference point, the house is at right angles to the beach of the Luxe Knossos Beach Hotel.
Kokkini Hani House is 15 km from Heraklion. After arrival at Heraklion you are at home by car and / or taxi within 20 minutes. Upon arrival by bus: get off at the stop of the Arina Beach Hotel. From there it is a 5 minute walk to Kokkini Hani House. At this bus stop you can also board the direction Heraklion or Hersonissos / Malia. Thanks to our good contacts, we can reserve a rental car for you as an extra service and at competitive prices. The exact price is of course dependent on period and availability. The rental car will then be ready for you at your arrival at the airport. When you leave, you also return the key there. A car is easy and worth it, because Crete has so much to offer that you can make breathtaking tours.
The seaside resort of Kokkini Hani is halfway between the beautiful capital Heraklion and the popular Hersonissos, barely a quarter of an hour away from the airport. The ribbon village is optimally accessible via the old as well as the new main road. The village has about 1000 inhabitants outside the high season, including many foreigners. In high season it is a popular tourist destination. Unlike many other seaside resorts in Crete, Kokkini Hani is open all year round and the shops and restaurants remain open all year round. This makes Kokkini Hani an ideal destination for wintering. In the winter period, the daytime temperature usually stays above 15 degrees. You will see snow-capped peaks and nature will enjoy some more humid air, which will provide wonderful vegetation - partly unique for Europe. Because of the favorable central location of the village and the good road and bus connections, many interesting tourist and historical places east of Heraklion are quickly and cheaply accessible. From nearby Heraklion are beautiful roads and bus connections to the west side of Crete, towards Chania . Kokkini Hani has several beaches, where you rent a lounger for very little money. The food is often of excellent quality and by Dutch standards downright cheap. The famous beaches of Gouves are within walking distance and are also easily accessible by the perfect public transport.
We are Margriet Rijsenbrij and Albert Toby from Purmerend. Together we run the coaching company Reset & Match. Spirituality is central to our work and working on yourself. This to be a better person for yourself but also others. A few years ago, Crete came our way, we went there for holidays and ended up in what is now our beautiful "Kokkini Hani House". We were immediately impressed by the positive energy in and around the house. We hope you can experience this too!
