Vasilis and his mother Vivi are tremendous hosts! Go out of their way to make you feel at home and the apartment was amazing. 20 seconds from the beach, but I would recommend renting a car as Crete is a massive island.

This was our favorite place that we stayed at on our vacation throughout the Greek Islands. Every morning I could watch the sun rise with my cup of coffee on the balcony. When we first got to the apartment it was quite late and Vivi greeted my husband and I with dinner because the nearby markets and restaurants were closed. She was so sweet. We did not expect this sort of special treatment. The apartment was cozy, clean and comfy. We spent most of our time on the beach which was steps from the apartment. The beach is a quiet cove where you can relax, read, and swim. Using the beach chairs and umbrellas cost 5 Euros per family for the day. We would love to come back and spend more time in Mades! It is an absolutely beautiful place!

I have to say, for my first time using Airbnb, and being as skeptical as I was, I had NOTHING to worry about. Vasilis and his Mom (Vivi) was nothing short of AMAZING!! the apartment was absolutely PERFECT! The location, the view, the hospitality, the service. They were so nice and friendly and super accommodating. And i think it is important for people to know how Vasilis is very responsive to your every need, questions and/or concerns. Anytime I sent him a message or even asked a small question, he would ALWAYS respond, no matter the time. When our flight from Athens was delayed till late in the night, and we wouldn't make it to any restaurants or be able to get dinner that late, Vasilis and his Mother had a pizza ordered for us and delivered to the apartment! His mother even took us to go rent a car through a car rental in town that has GREAT prices! They really went above and beyond to make you feel at home and comfortable! I seriously cannot thank Vasilis and Vivi enough for their generosity and making our stay AMAZING! If you're traveling to Crete, and coming in through Heraklion, stay here!!! It'll be worth it!! You are right in the middle of the island and everything is easily accessible. If you stay at Vasilis' apartment, you will not regret it! This was the first time my family used Airbnb and this was our second apartment stay and I have to say he communication with Vasilis compared to any other hosts was 10000 times better! Thank you Vasilis and Vivi for an amazing time! We will be back for sure!!!

We spent two wonderful weeks in the second half of June in the Michael apartment. Vasilis and his mother Vivi are extremely kind and incredibly hospitable people. They are always ready to help their guests. The apartment is very nice and comfortable and it is located just few steps from the beach in contrast to the expensive hotel at the other side of the bay. The place is really fantastic. Mades is isolated from the remaining part of the universe, but it is civilized enough to have comfortable conditions for the summer vacations. It is much nicer than neighboring villages such as Lygaria (which is also definitely very nice). The beach is very good. It is surrounded from both sides by rocks and you can find a variety of creatures there, so if you are interested in biology do not forget swimming mask and breathing tube. We inveigled an octopus and moray to the very shallow water between stones attracting them by sausages from the local shop. You can see a lot of crabs, various colorful fishes and even some corals along these rocks. Also, there are very beautiful hills/mountains around, which are high enough to suggest magnificent views, but low enough for walking there even with kids. There is a shop in Mades, where you can buy some food. I also recommend walking to Lygaria which takes nearly 30 minutes. There is a sort of a supermarket there as well as few cafes and tavernas where you can try a seafood. THANK YOU VERY MUCH VASILIS ! THANK YOU VERY MUCH VIVI !

This place probably requires a rental car, but really any place in Crete, you should have one to get around. The apartment was all were hoped it would be. Very clean and neat. Absolutely gorgeous beach right outside the front door. Great communication, and they paid attention to small details. I can only recommend this place!
