Full Description

The Site: level for approx 8500 sq m with an additional 1000 sq m of managed, cleared and grassed forest (which provide all year round shade) including 500 sq m of landscaped car park.

High roofs in all areas - separate kitchen, lounge, 2 bedrooms, shower/bathroom and office/reception which leads directly to the kennels.
Large patio area with pergola and established (eating) grape vines and new large barbecue
Total inside area 105 sq m

The Kennels - built to our high standards, each with its own run and large bedroom - big enough for 2 to share if they live together - full drainage to own large septic tank (which serves the house as well) - which has never needed emptying. We have 10 Bedrooms at present- possibility of doubling if wanted - Although we are now turning away guests at throughout the year, this is more to the style and numbers involved in the day to day operation.which is ,at present, run by Peter on his own.

1, Wet Weather (stone and grass based) 1000 sq m :
2.Field 4000 sq m with established Oak and shade trees (planted in line with North Star)

All areas floodlit for evening walks etc

The Area - surrounded by Oak Woodlands (protected) and these areas have also been cleared and managed to the Forestry Commission agreement. 250m from nearest neighbours (part of our Licence) which is Rethymnon Organic Brewery - a quiet location except for the birds and sheep bells. The rocky outcrop to the west and surrounding trees providing natural shelter.

All fittings/equipment/furnishings are included in the price (except my laptop )

Expansion Potential: Could/need to double the number of kennels with additional persons available to operate - at the moment operated by Peter on his own. Bookings 13 months in advance at present.

Competition/Market : No other Licensed Boarding Kennels in Crete - some'others' but smaller and none have the facilities/reputation of CRETE KENNELS which is why so many old and new customers want to book their dogs here

As of 1.11.19, have bookings throughout the year through 2020 ,We are open and fully used every day of the year (except for my brief holiday) and sadly am having to turn away enquiries as expansion is limited to my operating alone.

Years established -12 (started 2007)

Support and Training - On hand support and assistance available for the settling-in period available and I will be staying on the island for on-going advise if wanted

Reason for selling: One partner already returned to UK and Peter now wishes to retire

IMPORTANT: Whatever the publicity you see about Greece.. this is more restricted to mainland Greece - Crete is as different as Brixham in Devon is to (say) Newcastle. and is more self-sufficient - hence the continued growth in customers each year (41 in 2018 ,40 so far 2019 and more booked)

It's a great place to live

There is a further picture show on You Tube and a CD of pictures of the house and site are available by post if you contact Peter on 0030 6949688722 or e mail here -

The pictures tell only a part of the wow factor of this unique property/business - worth a visit and then , of course, there are the 375 plus dogs that visit us each year - regular up-dates on facebook
