  • Manos was a very nice and welcoming host and we enjoyed his place tremendously. He responded very quickly to all our queries, sent us detailed instructions as to how to find the place, and waited for our arrival although our flight was delayed. He welcomed us with a fresh watermelon and gave us tips and recommendations about places to visit and restaurants in the area. The place was clean, cosy, and the balcony overlooking the Mediterranean was particularly beautiful. We also enjoyed dinner at the local restaurants Robinson and Kalliotzina, and visited a nearby village on the hills, with a picturesque palatia and narrow old streets. Highly recommended.

  • Thanks a lot to Manos - arrival and communication were easy and fast. The appartement is as shown on the pictures and the balcony/view incredible! A perfect location to visit eastern Crete. At a very good value for money. I definitely recommend the place. Nicolas

  • Nikos Is a great host - he did all and more to make us welcome, left us drinks and fruits , good detailed house manual and information, communication was easy and effective - mainly handling my many concerns for the children before we booked and arrived (once we were there all was quite perfect so there was less need...) we really feel we found a new friend it Crete!

    Shay2016-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is perfectly situated near the sea and close by supermarkets, café shops and restaurants. Nikos was very helpful and communicative. The house is recommended for relaxing vacations near the sea!!!

    Manolis2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • You'll be "On the water"! If you like unrestricted views, super location, readily-available restaurants, tavernas, and bars, you'll be in the heart of the "local" Makrygialos scene. The property has another great amenity inasmuch as you can "shut out" the bustling beach noise, if you wish) by simply closing the excellently insulated and sound-proof terras door. You'll love it, should you decide to stay! Our best stay on the South coast to date!

    Anthony2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Host gentilissimo e disponibile. Appartamento in ottima posizione, bellissimo il terrazzo sul mare. Proprio sotto l'appartamento vari servizi: bar, ristoranti, market, bancomat e benzinaio. Servizio pulizia e biancheria frequente. Bagno senza finestra.

    Makry Gialos, Crete, Greece

    The house is near Koutsouras area, on the national road that connects Ierapetra city (20km) with Makry Gialos town (3km). It is located in a quiet environment, by the sea, close to local facilities and traditional tavernas. It is ideal for couples who want to explore Lasithi’s surrounding crystal ‘private’ beaches, but also for families with children and pets, as the house has a large fenced outdoor area with olive trees and pomegranates, where children can play safely.
  • The apartment is new, well furnished, and 50 meter from the sea, great value for money. Maria and his brother were super nice and friendly, we had a minor problem with a door but they fixed in 5 minutes. Koutsouras is a nice and relaxing base to explore east Crete. Definitely reccom ended

    Daniele2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a very good location, just 100m from a beach with crystal waters. It was clean and well –equipped, providing us everything we needed. Also, Maria, the host was very helpful. It is a great value for money and we will definitely stay there again. We recommend the place for couples and families.

    Alexander2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed the stay at the apartment. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a new bathroom and a cosy bed for two. There is enough space if you travel with children. The sea is just accross the street. There are supermarkets and bakery nearby. There are taverns you can walk to as well as a nice café/bar next to the venue. And there are some nice beaches you can go to by car. It's a perfect, quiet home base to discover the east of the island. Maria cares about her guests, she makes recommendations what to visit and you can contact her in case there should be any problems.

    Jessica2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • H διαμονή μας στο χώρο της κας Κανάκη ήταν εξαιρετική. Το σπίτι ευρύχωρο με όλες τις ανέσεις, πλήρως εξοπλισμένη κουζίνα και ολοκαίνουριο μπάνιο, μα πάνω από όλα καθαρό. Η θέα από την βεράντα χαλαρωτική, με τη θάλασσα ακριβώς απέναντι. Ιδανικό για όλους και ιδιαίτερα για οικογένειες.

    Nena2017-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Appartamento nuovo, molto bello e confortevole con presente tutto il necessario. A piedi ci si reca nel paesino vicino dove ci sono supermarket e ottimi ristorantini sul mare. A 20km c'è Ierapetra una bella cittadina fornita di tutto, ideale per immergersi in un po' di vivacità serale. Non ho conosciuto personalmente Maria, ma era sempre a disposizione per informazioni e per eventuali problemi. Al nostro arrivo ci ha fatto trovare frutta e raki a nostra disposizione e il frigo pieno di cose per la colazione. Ottimo appartamento e accoglienza!!!

    Antonella2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Πάρα πολύ όμορφο σπίτι με όλες τις ανέσεις!!ιδανικό για οικογένειες αλλά και ζευγάρια που αναζητούν ηρεμία,Καλό φαγητό από τα ταβερνάκια εκεί κοντά και τις ομορφιές της ανατολικης Κρήτης!!

    Τσαχακης2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Прекрасные большие апартаменты! В доме есть все что нужно, очень чисто и хорошо оборудовано. Maria была очень вежлива, старалась во всем помочь. Мы получили массу приятных впечатлений! Рядом с домом есть несколько пляжей, кафе и мини маркет в пешей доступности, а на машине можно быстро добраться до очень красивых пляжей и городов (Sitia, Ierapetra, Agheios Nikolaos). Для тех кто ищет спокойный отдых это лучший вариант. Я и моя семья очень благодарны хозяйке за все!!! Это был чудесный отпуск.

  • Makris Giallos is a long beach and it is a good choice for family and quite vacation! You can walk for a long distance on the beach. Excellent apartment's location (you can really hear the wave sounds), very fast internet!

    Emmanuel2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, comfortable and convenient apartment with all necessary inside and shops very close to have a nice stay. We didn't meet with Nikos but anyway we've had a very good communication with him all along our stay

    Jean-Jacques2017-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nikos' apartment is very conveniently located right next to Makry Gialos' beach with a great view over the bay. It is very clean, comfortable and everything is in an excellent condition. Nikos was very accommodating to help find places to eat in the area, especially since I was there off-season. I will definitely come back in the summer!

    Eleftheria2016-12-28T00:00:00Z

    Ulrike Christiane2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Nikos si è dimostrato ospite perfetto, anche se ci siamo una volta sola. Aveva infatti il supporto di altre persone che si sono dimostrate preziose ed era dal lavoro in altra città in collegamento email immediato. Il monolocale è ben attrezzato di tutto e particolarmente luminoso dato che due pareti sono in cristallo , come si vede facilmente dalle foto . Il mare è a pochi metri ed è visibile magnificamente dal terrazzo . Siamo stati in questo appartamento per ben quattro settimane e siamo pienamente soddisfatti di tutto . Non è consueto, oltre agli elementi e bibite di benvenuto , vedersi portare dei dolci oppure una teglia di pasta al forno! visto che siamo stati in luglio e agosto temevamo la confusione ed il rumore ed è questo uno dei motivi per cui abbiamo deciso di andare sulla costa meridionale di Creta . Nella descrizione Nikos parlava di un sottostante bar e di un vicino ristorante ed eravamo quindi un po' preoccupati! Nulla di tutto ciò. Il bar chiude nel pomeriggio , è frequentato in prevalenza da greci tranquilli e simpatici . Nel ristorante abbiamo mangiato più volte in una situazione assoluta di tranquillità. Nel paese e nei dintorni poca vita notturna è spiagge belle e diverse ( dalla roccia alla sabbia fina e ad un fondo adatto anche a bambini molto piccoli . Se un amico si chiedesse consigli sapremmo dove indirizzarlo .

  • Ideal location overlooking the sea from the balcony. We made full use of the access to the private beach and the swimming pool at the adjacent resorts which were easy to access. The flat is super clean and comfortable with basic kitchen facilities (but more than you'll need as there are so many good restaurants within walking distance). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in the future.

  • A lovely little apartment which was perfectly located for beach and use of facilities in the next hotel. Very clean, we would have liked a few more items in the kitchen e.g. toaster, microwave and cutlery, but this did not spoil a prefect little find!!!!! Lots of information about the resort was shared by Emma. Diana was extremely polite and pleasant. Tess and Chris

    Tess2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We have really appreciate our stay at Mesodokia studio. It is a beautiful and confortable place, close to the beach. Emma has answered very quickly to our demands. Absolutly nothing to complain. Thank you Emma. Lyne and Alan (Montréal, QC, Canada)

    Lyne2016-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Emma's studio with child. The place and the location were very nice for families with our baby. House is near the hotel with swimming pools for toddlers (30cm) , kids (30-60cm), and one (110cm) with slides. Emma provide us a playpen for baby. The sea and the beaches were very clean, it's a lot of nice restaurants 5-10 min walked. We loved our holidays in Emma's place. There was just a slight inconvenience that you need to close windows at night ecause of the mosquitoes

    Iuliia2016-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • The place was easy to find and we got there earlier than expected and our host came earlier to give us the key. The apartment is next to a lot of good restaurants and the tips that Emma gave us were spot on! We enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend the apartment. Thank you Emma

    Charles2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nice view and very close the beach

    Gulen 2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Mesodokia studio we stayed in for 10 days was small and quaint but very well-equipped. Although sandwiched between 2 hotels it had a nice sea view from the balcony and was very convenient for accessing the best beach in Makrygialos through the grounds of the Sunwing Hotel. We were also able to use the hotel pool and Jacuzzi. The entrance to the studios was also opposite the best restaurant (in our opinion) in the area which was very handy - we thoroughly recommend Zorba's Taverna for an evening meal.

    Kate2016-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Mesodokia studio (for 2) is a great offer for the price You pay, nice, clean open space, with a terrace (needs sunshade) situated in the middle of the resorts gives you opportunity for usage of the infrastructure, good to have a car - couple marvelous beaches if You go east can be range in 5-15 min.

    Quentin2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 3 nights at Manos' place. We wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely one of our top Airbnb experiences: a cozy, immaculate apartment with an awesome balcony on the sea and a little hidden beach just a few steps aside. Staring at the waves at night and diving into the water right after we woke up was priceless. Manos is a very sensitive and careful host, communication was quick and easy. Extra thanks to him and his wife for the wine and watermelon, and of course for the suggestions on restaurants, beaches, and everything else. If you have a car Koutsouras is a perfect place to explore large parts of eastern Crete, being places like Ierapetra, Xerokambos, Agios Nikolaos perfectly at hand. Great experience, hope to be back.

    Giovanna2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • A great place we would recommend without hesitating. Manos and his wife were lovely, can't be closer to the sea and some really nice beach, villages and tavernas around.

    Thomas2016-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfull host! Wonderfull place what else can i say? As a crète lovers we found here exactly what we were looking for. Magic.

    Ruud2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is clean and the balcony has a stunning view over the sea. As we arrived we found some fruits, water, lemonade and wine in the fridge. The house is near shops, restaurants and has a good position to reach all the locations in the East coast of Crete.

    Giovanni 2017-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Hosts were lovely, nothing too much trouble, lovely fresh fruit and drink for us when we arrived

    Paul2016-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Manos is a very friendly host! As we arrived he´d had some fruits, water, lemonade and wine for us in the allready running fridge. His place is absolutely clean and calm with a dream of a seaview - absolutely like you can see on his pics. It´s near to the beach, also to supermarkets and some small but very good restaurants/taverns. EVRYTHING WAS PERFECT - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

  • Это традиционный критский дом, его отремонтировали и оборудовали всем необходимым для проживания. Дом находится в тихой горной деревушке. Кругом тишина. Очень приятно отдохнуть от городской суеты. Кондиционер включать не пришлось, всегда дул прохладный ветерок. Было интересно и необычно пожить в таком доме. Большое спасибо, Марии! Она встретила нас у церкви и показала, где припарковать машину, как можно ближе к дому. К Марии всегда можно обратиться с вопросом и просьбой.

  • Superbe maison dans un village très sympathique qui surplombe la mer. Voisinage très agréable. Vue magnifique de la terrasse. C'est un endroit calme. On peut trouver beaucoup de petites plages aux alentours et c'est un bon point de départ pour découvrir la côte Est. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour.

    Agnès2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Très jolie petite maison dans un village authentique. Très bonne communication avec John avant et pendant notre séjour et sympathique accueil de Maria. La maison est très belle, comme sur les photos, avec ses pierres et ses murs rustiques ! La douche est magnifique ! Nous avons trouvé la pièce de vie un peu trop petite, plus petite que nous l'imaginions, mais comme nous n'y prenions que le petit déjeuner, ça allait... Nous étions deux... Difficile de séjourner à plus, je pense, malgré les deux chambres. A savoir : l'escalier en colimaçon, obligatoire pour se rendre à la salle d'eau-toilettes ainsi qu'à la deuxième jolie petite chambre au plafond assez bas (un charmant cocon), est très étroit et abrupte... condition physique correcte recommandée ! Du coup, la chambre du haut nous servait de vestiaire et nous dormions dans celle du bas pour ne pas avoir à prendre les escaliers la nuit. En bref, très joli petit gîte pour passer un séjour cocooning ! Le village est très sympa, les voisins chaleureux et généreux, la vue sur la mer et la montagne fantastique... Belles balades à pied à faire par les nombreux chemins autour du village : ça grimpe un peu, il fait chaud, donc plutôt le matin ! Deux tavernes à Agios Stefanos : je connais mieux celle du bas, face à l'église, où Zoé vous sert la bière avec tout un tas de mezze.... pour 3 € !! La route qui mène au village au départ de Makri Gialos est une belle petite route de montagne avec point de vue superbe ; entre autre, on profite des couchers de soleil sur la montagne. Et à Makri Gialos, toutes les commodités, plusieurs restaurants et tavernes et.......... la plage !! Parasols et "café frappé" sur le sable ! L'eau à 25 degrés, l'air à 33 degrés en cette belle fin d'été ! Très bon séjour !

    Lydie2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • La maison de John est fabuleuse. La communication avec John et Maria a été parfaite. Je tiens également à souligner l'accueil et la gentillesse exquise des habitants de ce petit village très typique. N'hésitez pas une seconde, louez la maison de John!

    Recently constructed house in a traditional style. Perfect for couples or families who would like to escape the daily hustle-and-bustle to an authentic rural Cretan setting. The property is within walking distance (about 10 minutes) to the glorious bay of Staousa - suitable for all abilities. There are 2 traditional Tavernas within a 5 minute stroll. Enjoy living in a quaint village with friendly neighbours - but not too close! The perfect place to totally getaway from it all :)
    Spacious and private
    Perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday. House is at the end of the small private access; third and last house. All have their own section. Fabulous large pagoda provides shade and outdoor seating space.
  • Tru's house is a real gem - we absolutely loved it! If you like to spend your holidays in quiet, natural surroundings, away from the touristy areas, then this will be perfect for you. The house is located at the edge of the small village Kalo Nero, right in front of an olive grove and next to a mountain. There are no direct neighbours and the only sounds you hear at night are the waves, the birds and every now and then a dog or a chicken. Inside, there is a spacious living room with an integrated fully equipped kitchen, a small bathroom and two bedrooms. Most of the time we sat on the spacious patio and enjoyed the silence. Without a rental car it would probably be difficult to get around. The next supermarkets are in Makrygialos which is about 5-6 km away. Next to the village is the monastery Moni Kapsa which you can visit and a gorge which we hiked through up to the village Pervolakia. It was an impressive walk! There is also a really pretty beach which you can reach in ten minutes by foot. Although the village is really small, there are even two restaurants at the main road where you can go to if you are too lazy to prepare dinner by yourself :-) To sum up, if you are into touristy entertainment, party life and pub crawls, this is surely not the right place for you. But if you enjoy authentic Cretan rural life, silence, nature and hiking - like we do - this is the place to be!

  • This place is paradise! A beautiful single house perfect for our family of four. A great Taverna and a wonderful little beach just 5 minutes away in a small non-touristic little village. This surpassed any expectations - it was the perfect vacation.

  • A nice house with all amenities to have a good stay in southern crete. A lovely covered terrace around the house (different from the photo where it's not covered yet) so you can stay in the shade at every hour to read or do some yoga practice. Beware there may be no or poor phone (therefore mobile internet) reception.

  • Abbiamo soggiornato per 3 notti, la casa è comoda anche se la doccia è un po scomoda perchè non ha una tenda, c'è il condizionatore in sala ma il ventiltore è rotto. Non abbiamo mai incontrato Tru.

  • Très jolie maison, à proximité d'une magnifique plage et de tavernes. Idéale pour 2 couples. Au calme, on entend que les coqs ! Il est juste dommage de ne pas avoir de volet (ou rideaux occultants) aux fenêtres des chambres. La cuisine manque de quelques casseroles et surtout pas de poubelle ni de quoi laver la vaiselle ( éponge, produit vaiselle, torchon), dommage.

  • Makry Gialos is a peaceful place for families with children. Shallow, turquoise, crystal clear water, golden sandy beach, and no crowd at all. Jon (Julia's husband) gave us a warm welcome with a bottle of local wine and cold water. The apartment is well equipped, clean and it is in a silent place. The beach can be reached in two minutes, where the sunbeds were waiting for us under the shade-trees. Makry Gialos is also a perfect choice as a starting point for single center tours in the Lassithi region. Julia/Jon knows a much about the countryside; it is worth to ask and listen to them.

  • Logement à 2 minutes à pied d'une très agréable plage de sable, idéal en famille. Bien situé aussi pour rayonner vers Sitia, Ierapetra, Zakros, etc. tout l'extrême Est de la Crète. Julia n'était pas présente mais son contact sur place a été très efficace et disponible. De plus, appartement bien équipé et parfaitement propre, merci beaucoup! Marlyse

    A traditional stone-built house with two main areas and a yard. It can accommodate 1-4 persons. It dates from 1883. The restoration was completed in May 2016. As it is stone-built, it is naturally cool throughout the summer and warm in the winter.
    A traditional stone-built house with two main areas, namely a living-room and a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a yard. It can accommodate 1-4 persons. It dates from 1883. Over the years, it has been used as the village threshing floor, a shoe-maker’s shop and a “kafenio”. The restoration was completed in May 2016. As it is stone-built, it is cool throughout the summer and warm in the winter.
    The traditional village of Pefki is built at an altitude of approximately 420 meters, on the slope of a mountain range called “Romanati”, named after its highest peak and stretching north of the village. It covers an area of about ten thousand acres and is located in the northeast of Sitia district, 35 kmfrom the town of Sitia and 30 km east of Ierapetra. To the north, it borders the Community of Krion, with the Libyan Sea to the south and the picturesque beaches of Analipsi, Makris Gialos, Diskari and Lagada, just 7 km away. Agios Stefanos extends to the west and Lithines to the east, both of them being small villages that belong to the Municipality of Makris Gialos. The Pefki gorge is on the southeast coast of Crete, between Pefki and Makris Gialos. It starts right after the village, which is 7 km away from the sea, and ends up into the sea. The E4 trail passes through Pefki, linking the village of Dafne with Makris Gialos. There is also a Folk Art Museum with everyday objects, woven fabrics, a loom, earthenware jars, etc. from the old days. The village also boasts beautiful churches, like the church of the True Cross in the northernp art of Pefki, up on the mountain top, with a unique view over the town of Pefki and even as far as Makris Gialos and the Libyan Sea. The village haskept the traditional architecture. After taking a stroll in the labyrinthine narrow streets, it is worth stopping at the “kafenio” (= traditional coffee shop) or the tavern of the village, which has a unique “balcony” with unrestricted view as far as the eye can see.
  • Beautifully restored appartment with everything you could need on vacation. Definitely a must book if it's available.

    Alex2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately we didn't meet Alexandra because she was working at that time, but her father welcomed us warmly and explained us everything we needed to know. The little house is perfect! Very beautiful and clean. It is located just a few meters from a good taverna run by nice people. The village is calm and very authentic, ten minutes from the sea. We would definitely recommand Alenxandra's house in Pefki !!!

    Dimitri2017-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a great location with a nearby Taverna. The village has wonderful views and the place is very clean and decorated to a high standard. Highly recommended.

    Alejandra2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a great traditional village, far from mass tourism. Everything is brand new in the house and arranged with a great taste. The evenings on the terrace were delightfull. Highly recommended!

    alexandre2016-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartement In a wonderful montain village. Much better than the cost for a relaxing stay!

    Gregoire2016-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Communication with Alexandra was fine and easy. She informed us how to get the key and find the house. The house in Pefki is beautifull and created with love! Pefki is a very nice small village with a fantastic taverne with good food. And of course the kafenion. We loved the house and the place. Alexandra thanks for the care!

    greta2016-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • An beautifully designed and architecturally impressive home. If your are looking for peace and quiet in an authentic Greek village, this is for you. The home itself is very cozy, and features the most charming bedroom. When we entered the home, we were very happy with our choice. The home is located just a few steps away from a lovely taverna serving homemade Greek food. Sunday nights there feature live bouzouki music and a fixed-price feast menu. Arrive on a very empty stomach to get your money's worth! The village is a bit of a steep drive up. I could see how this might become tiresome on an extended stay if you intend on exploring the rest of Crete while you stay here. My suggestion is to enjoy the village and the surroundings during your stay instead of using it as a base for the rest of your Crete explorations. We had one electrical issue (the breaker for our apartment tripped and we didn't know where it was located) during our stay, but it was fixed within 45 minutes of our message to our host.

    Elias2016-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Alexandra's house is a dream: it is a wonderful old building, carefully and very tastefully renovated. It's a mix of old and new elements, but everything is of very good quality and super stylish. We enjoyed every minute we spent in this house. The village is lovely and a great base to explore the area. Last but not least Alexandra was very helpful and always reachable whenever we had a question. We couldn't recommend it more! Thank you!

    Traditional stone built Cretan village house in the mountain village of Agios Stephanos, just 15 minutes from the beach, with spectacular views of the Libyan Sea. Light and bright, simple and comfortable. Two beds, two bathrooms and two sofa beds.
    Traditional stone built Cretan village house in the mountain village of Agios Stephanos, on the south east of the island, with spectacular views of the Libyan Sea. The tranquillity of village life in the mountains, but only 12-15 mins drive to the coastal village of Makri Gialos with fabulous beaches to explore, and the practical facilities of supermarkets, banks and tavernas. Beautiful roof terrace with sea view, flowers, covered hideaway sleeping benches/ sitting area, kitchen breakfast room, lounge with fireplace and balcony overlooking the sea. Most of the village is built on the side of the mountain, creating interesting dwellings with spectacular views. Mine is to the side of the village, so it is particularly peaceful, but one can walk to the main square in a couple of minutes and be around people, both Cretans and other English speaking second homers or holidaymakers. Main door of the house opens into the kitchen/ breakfast room with a lovely big wooden table that I had made by a local carpenter. Original (not working) fireplace. Up a couple of steep steps to the kitchen area- fridge, cooker, washing machine, kettle 2nd bedroom is downstairs, off the kitchen, a quirky, cosy room, cooler with low ceilings, beams, en suite, with double bed Up the wooden staircase to the lounge with 2 sofa beds and 1 armchair and a working fireplace. Balcony with spectacular view down the valley and to the Libyan Sea Main bedroom is down a few steep steps from the lounge, with high ceilings and a double bed. Air conditioner available. Main bathroom is upstairs off the lounge. Wet room style (hand held shower and no curtains as the Greek style), fully tiled, toilet and basin. Downstairs in 2nd bedroom, dipping your head takes you to ensuite with original beams, again wet room style. Air conditioning in main bedroom if required. Two portable fans available. Bedside tables in bedrooms. No wardrobes but hooks with hangers. Outside: Roof terrace - This is my favourite place, sitting secluded with the spectacular vista down the valley to the sea. This is a place one can sit and relax, or entertain, day or night, breakfast or dinner. There are flowers and a pergola and also a completely open area for those who want the full heat of the sun Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bathtowels and hand towels are included. Linen included. There is no daily laundry change or cleaning unless requested for a negotiable fee Air conditioning in main bedroom if required. Two portable fans available. Bedside tables in bedrooms. No wardrobes but hooks with hangers.
    I love to come here whenever I can. It’s a retreat and a chance to soak up some much needed sun. I have made good friends here over the years and I always get a warm and enthusiastic welcome when I return, it really is so heartwarming. The villagers are so kind and helpful, usually leaving me olive oil or fruit and veg that they have grown, they are so generous and always ready to connect even though speaking different languages. What I particularly love about the location of my house is that I can be quiet and spend time alone if I like, but I can participate with the others when I want some company. I love the fact that, at night, the kafenions suddenly come to life. I know that I can walk around the corner and see whats’ happening- who is out tonight? Is it a quiet night or a lively one? I can usually just join others at a table and have a nice time, feeling welcome and relaxed.
  • We had a lovely time at Lynnes' place. The house exceeded our expectations, greatly arranged and the terrace is a dream! Everything that Lynne provided was there and many more, this was highly appreciated. Would stay there again in a heart beat!

  • Apartment is very nice and well located direct to the see. We had a particulat experience in Crete and Manos was very lovely to us and showed us his mediterranean warm hospitality.

    Caterina2016-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for a quiet getaway from the buzz of Northern Crete, then this is the place. It's clean, bright, spacious and right on the ocean. A small, pebble beach is just a minute walk from your door that offers great snorkelling in calm conditions. Several markets are within walking distance including a great butcher west of the apartment (in the direction of the police station). We rented a car in Heraklion and the roads on Crete are an epic adventure of narrow switchbacks over high mountain passes. It's incredible. We visited a beautiful white sand beach in the next town to the east just a 5 minute drive. Communications with Manos were great. Thank for the stay.

    Arran2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • It´s a great location, view from the balcony is fantastic, everything was really clean in the apartment and Manos is a really helpful and hospitable landlord which is really keeping an eye on these apartments to offer the base for some great vacation. We´ll definitely be coming back.

    Andreas2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Manos's Green Wave apartment. Manos provided details of location, route, public transport etc before our trip and he was there to meet us, show us round the apartment and to offer any advice and assistance should we need it. Green Wave was exceptionally clean on our arrival. The apartment is very well equipped and a lot of thought has gone into its furnishing and decoration. We had a very comfortable stay. The balcony provides a stunning view directly over the sea. The location is easily accessible but quiet and there is a choice of well stocked supermarkets, tavernas and a pharmacy within a short distance. I would certainly recommend a stay with Manos, a great host.

    Peter2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is exactly as described and very clean. A Highlight is definitly the gorgeous view from the balcony. Manos was always very nice and helped us with many tips. Thank you ;)

    Till2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • All was perfect. We enjoyed to stay 10 days in this flat. The decoration is very nice for holidays, it 's cosy. Thanks to Manos and his wife for the quality of the welcome.

    Nathalie2016-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Green Wave was amazing! The host (Manos) was very welcoming and extremely thoughtful. All the amenities worked perfectly. And the photos don't do the view justice!

    Matt2016-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Already before booking the appartment Manos was very helpful and available, so he was during our stay, you have a question or need something, he'll help very quickly. The place is very beautiful, directly situated on the ocean. The terasse was our favourite spot. Small beach just next but if you have a car (highly recommended) just drive east and you'll find lovely long beaches just for yourself. Everything you need is in the appartment and it was even cleaned in the middle of our stay and we also got fresh towels. Fruit and drinks for welcome. The south coast is for people who are looking for a calm and relaxing vacation. Small traditional restaurants, Café/Bakerie and supermarkets are in walking distance. If you like fishing bring you fishing rod, you can just fish in front of your terasse (or even from the terasse, haha) All in all a perfect stay in a lovely place with lovely host! Thank you Manos :)

  • We have just come back form a 2 week stay at this lovely villa. Dimitri and Chara were very welcoming and made the booking and stay easy and effortless. The villa is very well equipped and the kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, coffee machines and plenty of crockery and utensils. The beds are very comfortable and every room has air con. The outside space is the best part of the villa, with an amazing roof terrace and BBQ, comfy seating area at the back by the pool and table and chairs in the front. The beach is a five minute walk and Makry Gialos is a short drive. It has supermarkets and plenty of tavernas and good cafes including Dimitri and Charas which is in the harbour area.

    Jane2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We just spent 2 weeks in Dimitri's and Chara's villa with a little baby (1 year old). It was a perfect vacation for all us! The villa: the same as shown on photos, even much better! It has gorgeous poolside terrace, the terrace near the entrance and amazing personal roof space! The roof terrace has barbecue place where you can prepare the food anytime you want. The pool is very clean and just in one step from the villa. Inside all rooms are very stylish and cosy at the sae moment. The kitchen is very well equipped - you have everything to prepare the food (microwave oven, coffee machine 2 types, grill machine) and to eat it from, especially glass - for wine, cocktails, soft drinks. Dimitri and Chara prepared 'welcome' pack in the kitchen: some food, snacks, drinks - which was a very pleasant to find after the way from the airport. Moreover there were little helpful things to cook the dishes: olive oil, salt, pepper, spices, milk, etc. The hosts: Dimitri and Chara are very nice, hospitable people. You can contact Dimitri on any issue if there is some & he can recommend the places to visit, etc. The place: Makry Gialos is a very comfortable place to spend the vacation with little children. It is quite calm (at least in September), very friendly people who make you feel like at home. And there is a special attitude to children - very kind and glad to see babies. You need a car to go to the nearest beach with cafes and sun-beds (about 5-7 minutes). There are different cafes on the beach line with any kind of foods & good & quick service. For the breakfast & snack there is a very authentic cafe Olympia owned by Dimitri & Chara. We'll definitely recommend this villa to spend vacations with children & family.

  • Maria was a great host. She made it possible for us to arrive at crazy hours, and made sure we had everything we needed. The place is lovely, clean, and it was great to be part of a village from the first day ! From the walk among the olive trees above the village and the beaches close by on the coast, we loved everything about our trip. Seriously, it's the kind of places you would rather NOT recommend to keep it for yourself !

    Konstantin2016-09-08T00:00:00Z

    Sandra2017-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Villa Maria and were sad to leave after five nights. The village is great and the square is lively after dark with good food. The house has been done with great skill and flair (an oil lamp on the wall!) and it has everything we needed. The beach at Makry Gialos was great for us and our children. Thank you Maria.

    Gregory2016-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We were welcomed warmly by Maria, with her homemade honey cake & a fine bottle of Cretan wine. The Villa is beautifully appointed and very comfortable with great cooking facilities. The terrace has full morning sun and is a great place for outdoor eating. The village is small, but with a great taverna and well located for exploring the beautiful mountainous countryside of Eastern Crete.

  • This Place is a very authentic House in the hills of Crete. It is located in a tiny village and all nighbors are very helpful. Maria was an awesome host. She helped us (if needed) and communication with her was easy and fast. In the house there is enough room for 2 people + Child. Everything is clean and in good condition. The place is located in the hills (stavrochori) and therefore it is a great place for hiking.

    Stefan2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tank you Maria for the wonderful days in your house. Maria gave us a very warm welcome with a homemade cake and a bottle of cretan wine. The Villa looks much better that in the picture. Much space, a very good bed , well equiped with all you need for a few days in the stunning place in the Mountain. And you can feel the personality of Maria in each very nice detail in the Villa. We highly recommand Villa Maria in stavrohori.

    A gorgeous home from home just 20 minutes walk from the seaside village of Makrygialos, and only a short walk from Lagada Beach. A modern and well equipped haven with shared pools/ gardens in an area of great natural beauty and traditional tavernas.
    This apartment has the qualities of absolute peace and relaxation. It is perfectly positioned to get the best of both worlds: close enough to gorgeous south coast beaches but equally accessible to the homely charm and amenities of the village and nearby larger towns of Sitia in the north and Ierepetra to the west. Easily accessible by the new Cretan bypasses, you are 'home' before you know it and with every modern amenity available in the penthouse, you can do as little or as much as you like. We have tried to cater for every taste so the wall mounted TVs come with a personal selection of current DVDs for your usage. Our space has character and comfort and, with two gorgeous pools, ample sunbathing areas and traditional seating with amphitheatres on site, there are plenty of places to either enjoy or escape the baking sunshine. The roof terrace is the piece de resistance: we love watching the sunset with a glass of the local wine before heading into town.
    Our resort-Bayview- is set on a quiet coastal road which follows the shape of the nearby beaches and is lined by neighbouring olive farms. Directly in front? A few goats and some olive trees. It's that simple. And a track to the beach opposite, although be aware that this is sometimes a haunt for naturists. The next beach over the headland- a little bit of a climb but worth it- is Diaskari, our favourite, gently shelving paradise with a picture perfect taverna. The most family friendly beach is the main one in the village: shallow, clear, warm and with a host of water sports in Summer, it's well worth a visit. Many tavernas offer free sunbed use if you purchase drinks and snacks. The village itself hosts gorgeous bars and tavernas that serve long into the night and also has a host of holiday shops, butchers, florists, gift shops and handy ATM machines for holiday cash. There is also a local doctor, dentist and pharmacy should you need medical care and attention.
  • The best place for a quiet vacation, original Greek atmosfere away from turists. Just so beatiful, with sandy beaches, mountains view and glancing at stars on the top roof terrace half of the night. Thank you for this time - think we will be back again ;-) Helle

  • Judith's crete home was beautiful, clean and perfectly located. Her suggestions were right on and we are so glad we choose to spend time In makrygailos. Our time at her home will forever be remembered by our family. Thanks again Judith!

  • sono stati giorni molto piacevoli in una località di mare bella e ancora preservata dal turismo di massa. L'appartamento di Judith fa parte di un residence con una bellissima piscina dove i nostri tre figli si sono divertiti tantissimo. L'appartamento, forse per 5 un poco piccolo ( per 4 sarebbe perfetto) e' curato in ogni dettaglio e gode sia di un ampio balcone da cui si vede il mare che da un'ulteriore terrazza sul tetto in cui è incantevole soggiornare la sera guardando le stelle. Serbiamo bellissimi ricordi e speriamo di poter tornare

    Makry Gialos, Crete, Greece

    Just a few steps on a quiet road separate the spacious terrace of the beach and crystal clear water. You can even go swimming shortly before breakfast, while the coffee is already running through the machine.
    The open, brightly interior colors underlines the light Mediterranean character of this exclusive holiday home, which leaves a think in any room of summer, beach and sea. The well equipped kitchen is connected to the spacious living room. The living room has satellite TV. Down the hall you reach the two bedrooms with two single beds, the master-bedroom with double bed and decorated in warm shades of blue bathroom.
    In the area there is plenty to explore, whether lonely bays and picturesque canyons and archaeological sites such as the Palace of Zakros and historic ancient monasteries as Toplou or Moni Kapsa. The nearby towns of Ierapetra, Sitia and Agios Nikolaos load with pretty little shops for long shopping trips. Excellent taverns are in walking distance, beautiful people sit on the idyllic harbor in Makrigialos.
  • The house is really nice with a special style. It is very white and clean,not hot and the location is very convenient. It is close to what you need on your holiday. Claudia and Eleni are great and very willing to reply on every question!

  • Wonderful house as described and it was a stunning drive down from Heraklion Airport! We stopped many time along the way! Extremely romantic and great way to get away from it all! I would definitely recommend this location to everyone. Seems like a perfect house for family or a group of friends. It was just the two of us, but it could sleep 6 easily.

    Andrea2015-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is now our dream home! Everything was absolutely perfect from talking to Claudia and coordinating our arrival, then being met by Apostolis who showed us around to falling in love with Crete? This home and location are truly amazing treasures.

    Cindy2015-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was a nice bit of luxury on our trip. The house was immaculately clean and the bed was super comfortable. We used the wood oven for a delicious dinner. The house is on a pretty main road so it was a little noisy on the front patio, but the bedroom was quiet and Claudia accommodated us with very short notice. All in all a very relaxing and fully equipped, enjoyable house.

    Rebecca2017-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my husband had an amazing time ! We came to stay for are honeymoon and we were greeted with such warm welcomes. They had a champagne bottle for us and lots of roses to make the place very romantic ! The towns people were so nice and the harbor was most beautiful at night with all the stars in the sky! The locals were so friendly and we will return again ! Claudia's itinerary was perfect for day trips to amazing villages with nightlife and great for shopping. We rented a car and the drove to each town which was breath taking! The views of the island are so beautiful !! This had to be me and my husbands best trip ever!!. Thanks Claudia for an amazing honeymoon & for letting us stay at your amazing villa best time of our lives !!!!

    Rebecca2015-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal for people who want to see authentic Crete far away from big resorts you can find in the north. Good location close to wild areas with very nice beaches like Xerokampos. Good pastry/bakery and nice tavernas in Koutsouras and the beach with restaurant at the Artemis hotel at Makri Gialos.

    Christophe2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Claudia met us and made us feel very welcome. The house was as describes, and clean and comfortable and our stay was very enjoyable. She also helped us rent a car so we had a fun tome exploring Crete. Her written instructions for finding the house were excellent, and she also provided a nice written fact sheet with suggestions of place to visit etc. I highly recommend this as a good place to stay while in Crete !

    Aurora2015-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Claudia's place! The listing describes the house accurately. It's in 3 mins walk to the nearest proper beach and a short ride from some of the best beaches in the south - Kakkos Bay, Agia Fotia etc. All the amenities worked fine, and Claudia help with advice via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) from time to time. It was a very pleasant stay!

    The house is 85 sqm and consists of 2 double bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom), living room with double sofa bed and full kitchen. It also has a washing machine, fireplace and air conditioning. The Villa Dimitra is located in the best part of Makrigialos with panoramic sea views, just above the harbor. It is just 50 meters from the beach, tavernas and cafes of the area.
    A spacious room with panoramic sea views.
  • We spent a wonderful week at Villa Dimitra with Katerina as our warm and hospitable host. Everything was exactly as we hoped. The villa was perfect for us as a couple but would be equally spacious and well appointed for two couples or a family. We loved lounging outside in the sun over our morning coffees, with all of Makrygialos stretched before us. The villa is perfectly located above the beech and easy walking to cafes, tavernas, restaurants and small shops of all types. We would not hesitate to recommend Villa Dimitra, or happily return ourselves.

    Paul (Al)2017-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Katerina doesn't speak English but we were easily able to see the location, sounds and sights of the main floor apartment. It was a beautiful sitting patio that overlooks the bay and harbor directly. Its less than a 5 minutes to walk into the sandy beach area but you're walking by water in about 1 minute! The house is as detailed with both beds being quite firm. The "en-suite" bathroom is quite small with a shower that has a sloped wall in it. As there were just the two of us, we used the other bathroom that is large, in European standards. The shower door needs to be fixed as there's a wheel missing and the hand shower wall attachment is falling off. All nothing that couldn't be easily dealt with. For the community there were many placing closed and closing but that still left a good selection still operating. There's something to be said about walking for fresh bread, grabbing a yogurt to have with coffee while listening to the waves and watching the boats come and go in the morning!

    Randy2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Charming house with outstanding view on the bay. Very cozy Greekish villa. Katerina is a welcoming person willing to help. It's only few minutes walk to the sand beach and greek restaurants.

    Sergey2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Das Appartement ist etwas oberhalb des Hafens (in zwei Minuten ist man zu Fuss unten). Es hat in der Hafengegend einen schönen Strand, ideal für kleine Kinder oder auch zum Schwimmen und viele kleine Tavernas. Die Taverne Olympia wird von Dimitri geführt, er weiss Bescheid über die Gegend. Hat uns Schluchten empfohlen und anderes. Der Ort ist ruhig (im Juni) und etwas abseits. hat uns sehr gefallen.

In the area one can find supermarkets, cafeterias, a pool bar, a bakery, a pastry shop, a bookstore, a pharmacy, a hairdresser's, an infirmary, a post office and a police station. A bus station to facilitate the transportation around the island exists only 20 m away from the house...

  • Not what was expected nor worth the price. The villa is not even close to Sea Side but Main Road Side. The villa is not the 100m from the Sea but 223m from the Sea. You can not see, hear, or even smell the Sea from any part of the villa. The villa is attached to an apartment building along one whole side. The inside of the Villa has lots of wires just sticking out of the walls. I have 4 kids and was rather uncomfortable as to if they were live wires or not. Oh the ants everywhere and I mean everywhere. I had to take my Daughter to the Doctor in town because she got bit inside her ear and had to have it treated. I would wake up at night just to find ants all over my pillow. I don't think it's worth the time to review any more of the villa because you can find many other villas for a much lower price that are what is described on the listing. I have rented houses for a long time all over the world and never had this kind of negative experience with the home. I've just giving you a few things but I could go on and on but don't want to spend anymore of my time even thing about the whole ordeal. Save yourself the trouble and rent another Villa that is really Sea Side and enjoy the great island of Crete.

Grandes chambres et coin bbq appréciable et confortable. Un grand merci à cet hote qui pris soin de répondre à chacune de nos questions et de nous aiguiller sur l ensemble des visites à faire dans la région. Cet hôte nous a conseillé un restaurant à 300 m de la maison qui est devenu notre repére. Il faut aller chez fay si vous recherchez tranquillité et belles visites authentiques de la Crète. Merci encore à elle.

  • Our experience in this house, this village, and with Kostas and Christina was really amazing. The pictures don't do the house justice, it is really beautiful and the three terraces, each with different views and amounts of shade/sun were great. The house is situated in a village called Pefki, which is 7km from Makri Gialos, the nearest town, so you definitely need a car. Pefki is wonderful, a hillside village with lovely local people and traditions. There is also a local taverna that was the best we ate at in our whole holiday. A real Cretan experience and highly recommended, we can't wait to go back!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay up in Pefki in Zetas apartment. The place was immaculately clean and well-stocked with blankets heaters and fire wood. Zetas parents were entirely helpful and friendly. The location of the flat is idlyllic, authentic and peaceful. We enjoyed several hikes and the beaches in the area. This place is an exceptional choice and an excellent value.

  • Very nice flat in beautiful surroundings. Zeta's place is located at the heart of a traditional, small village, very close to a fantastic taverna. The flat is very clean and comfortable with access to three different terraces. Perhaps more suitable to adults and grown up children than to babies. Zeta's family has made us feel welcome and has helped us whenever needed. A big thank you!

  • We were warmly made welcome by Zeta's Mother on our arrival. The house was extremely clean on our arrival and provided us a bottle wine, some basic provisions, raki, and fresh roses! Zeta and her parents were perfect hosts, always there if we had questions or needs. The house itself is exactly how it is described. The kitchen has all the basic utensils you need. Unlike some other comments, the WIFI was excellent throughout the house. We had a wonderful time in Pefki - a very picturesque village perched in the mountains. The local taverna (Piperia) serves good local food and the owners (Maria and Nikos) are very friendly - there is even local live music some evenings). It is ideally situated to discover the east coast of Crete. Many of the interesting beaches, gorges and towns can be reached within a hour's drive, including: - Gorge of the Dead (Zakros Gorge) - Vai Beach - Xerokambos beach (fantastic route to the beach, the route itself is worth the trip alone) - Chrissi Beach (Boat from Lerapetra) And of course Pefki Gorge, which starts in the village itself. Highly recommended.

  • Perfect !! Really perfect! The house is very clean. The bed, the kitchen appliances, the furniture... Perfect! I always remembered the moon reflect on the sea :-) When we arrived Manolis welcome us. He offered us very nice bottles of olive oil, local wine (my favorite) and Raki :-) There are many wonderful trails to walk not too far. A lot of typical and very good and not expensive restaurants... Direct front of the sea or in small villages. Except for the breakfast we didn't need to buy food. The area is very clean, wonderful view and people are so nice :-) I really recommend this place !

  • 5 stars in every single category. We can honestly and warmly recommend a stay in Villa Proistaki! The whole appartment and the garden are very comfortable, clean and in great shape - and then you have this amazing view across the sea plus an amazing private beach! And to top that, Manolis is a very friendly host who does his best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. So no matter if you want to relax in your garden with undisturbed view on the ocean, to go down to your private beach to jump in the water or to finish your day after exploring Crete by enjoying a glass of red wine, the sound of wind and waves in your ears while watching the sparkling moonlight on the ocean - this is your perfect place.

    At the end of a beautiful mountain, among vineyards and lots of olive trees, is a sleepy village called Orino, close to Ierapetra and Sitia in Crete. It is a small house, one floor plus roof, with window to the sea and a lot of freedom and joy. The house is 120 years old, stone cretan traditional style. It has 2,5 rooms, a bathroom and 2 kitchens, one inside the house and one outside for cooking and barbecue. The village has 172 residents, 620 sheep, 380 goats, dogs and cats about 80. There is a mini market for your basic needs and a traditional cafe (kafeneio) where you can enjoy coffe and the traditional drink of Crete, raki. A car is passing by everyday, providing residents with fish, meat, bread and vegetables. A supermarket at your place! Southeast part, between Ierapetra and Sitia, the wild area. For rent from the owners who are staying there for years. You will have a great, peaceful stay, in the beautiful mountains of Crete, hosted by the hospitality of Cretans! Welcome בקצה הר יפה, בין כרמים והמון עצי זית, שוכן לו כפר מנומנם. ומה יש בו, בכפר? בית קטן, מפלס אחד פלוס גג, עם חלון לים והרבה חופש ונחת. 172 תושבים, 620 כבשים, 380 עיזים, כלבים וחתולים בערך 80. להשכיר למי שמכיר, דרום מזרח האי, בין אירפטרה לסיטיה, כן, כן האיזור הפראי. לפרטים מהבעלים שכבר שוהים שם שנים.
  • The stone house in Orono provides a wonderful private loge to the monuntains as well as to the sea. Day by day it is hard to decide whether just to stay at at that cozy place or to drive to one of the lonesome (at least in early September) bays. Yehuda supplied us with a lot of information concerning the house, the village, the beaches.... He was allways available... And when we arrived, his neighbor Nikkos took care of us. Without Nikkoas we never would have had so much interesting impressions of the alternative milieu in east crete, the new-old way of gardening, the village people and the political situation in Greece in general. Besides: his figues are the best! Thank you both so much!!!

    Rea & Niko2014-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • A beautifully renovated old house in a mountain village. It could not be a better place to spend a week in the paradise of Crete. The house was thoughtfully prepared for us. It was a comfortable place to return after hiking in the hills surrounding the place. Yehuda's friend Nikkos was very kind to us. His advice and endless care made a world of difference during our stay in the village. It was a quiet and beautiful place with views of the gorge from the living room, sounds of crickets and smell of the herbs at night. The sea was only 15 minutes away and the mountain road led to stunning views of mountains around us. It was a very happy week at Yehuda's house and we highly recommend the place.

    Arie2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely traditional village in the mountains and a charming and cozy house with a great view to the ocean. The street to the village is kind of an adventure..we enjoyed it ;-) Yehuda was very helpful and friendly per mail and Nikos the neighbor took great care of us. We would definitively come back! Thank You!

    Anne2013-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, full of taste and soul. Magical view, nikkos the neighboor is a wonderful person. The village is really lovely, the region very attractive. We could not dream of a better place to stay in creta, and can't wait to visit the future farm udi and nikkos are planning to set up. Really, this place is just so paradisiac. Words are not enough to describe the experience of it, just go there!!

    melanie2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Yehuda’s house was just perfect for the kind of holiday we had in mind. Being in the mountains meant it was just a little cooler than the coast but also really only a short drive to reach the sea for swimming and more choices of places to eat. We had the ideal mix of very quiet village life and spending time by the water. Yehuda himself was so helpful, providing us with simple and clear directions from the airport where we had hired a car. He arranged very easy access to the house, introduced us to the good people of the village (Nicoletta from the cafe and Nikkos and his daughter from next door) and was available immediately online with any other information we needed about the house and the surrounding area. A great host! The house itself is so sweet. Basic in the best possible way with it’s own unique feel. All facilities work brilliantly and we were very peaceful and comfortable. We found the village and surrounding area, the mountain roads, the views and pace of life charming and utterly rejuvenating. We can honestly say it was a very special holiday and we plan to return next summer. Esther and Jonnie

    Esther2015-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We spent the last week of may in the Stone House and loved every moment of it! Neighbour Nicos (who is the host when Yehuda is not there) and his mother were the most perfect hosts! The stone house is a more then pleasant place to stay; the village, the house, the views, everything ouses out a very beautifull back to basic feeling and rest, with being discomfortable! I love to go back there anytime . . even when the sun is not shining!

    Richard2015-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • A truly unique experience. The house sits at theta of the Butterfly Gorge in a serene setting and Nickkos made us feel welcomed and became a wonderful friend. He came every morning with a gift of local food and wonderful stories. We enjoyed the local hikes and the beaches and Tavernas. As far as we could tell this was one of the best accommodations in the area if you want a special experience. We found the drive up the mountain to be a little scary but by the end of our week we both felt it was well worth it.

    Neal2016-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and peaceful place. Perfect to escape to the crowds on the coast and to explore the region. Nikos, the neighbor who takes care of the house and welcomes you is a really nice guy. I would go back anytime!

    Summer apartment in Kalamokanias Makrygyalo beach in three minutes from the beach and garden views olives. 5 minutes tavern, 10 min from supermarket-bakery shops and coffee bars in the local picturesque harbor of Makrigialos.
  • Thanks for all the help in sorting out some of the problems we had.... I guess most people do not cook while they are on holiday but we always like to buy local produce and cook ourselves (and it's too expensive to eat out every night) the cooker was the only thing that thing we can find fault with. Your Mum & Dad are great and have looked after us very well. The location was perfect for us and just a stroll to a great beach that was never crowded and an easy to walk into Makrigialos along the path.. Would come back with no hesitation....

  • Great simple apartment in peace, a short walk to the sea, we lived there four and it was ok.V the apartment is everything we needed and corresponds to photo and (URL HIDDEN) is for guests who are looking for simplicity and tranquility. Nearby local and foreign workers live, we enjoyed it and felt great. Joannis' parents are very kind, thanks to which we were able to eat and drink local products. We are very happy to come back.

  • The apartment is quite comfortable. There is everything necessary for rest. The kitchen is equipped with everything necessary. There is a washing machine. From home to the beach to walk for 2 minutes. The beach is magnificent. On the beach a few people, you'll like it. Near the house there is a farmer's market, bakery, shops and restaurants. But at the same time in the Bay where is located the apartment is very quiet and peaceful. I want to thank Aris and her husband for the warm reception. We will be glad to come back.

    Schöner kann man nicht Urlaub machen! Ganz privat auf einer wunderschönen Halbinsel, rechts und links Strände und das inmitten eines bunten gepflegten Gartens! 2 Wohneinheiten teilen sich die Anlage, jedes Studio komplett unabhängig vom anderen. Ruhe, Strand und Sonne!
    Urig und urgemütlich! Original im kritischen Stil erbaut! Back to basics! Immer Blick auf das blaue Meer!
    Geniesst die Ruhe und das Meeresrauschen! Außer der 2. Wohneinheit befindet sich kein 2 . Haus auf der Halbinsel!

  • Das schönste an dem kleinen Haus ist die einmalige, ruhige Lage. Es wird von drei Seiten mit Wasser umgeben und man hört nichts außer Wellenrauschen und Natur. Der große Garten und die große Terrasse sind sehr gepflegt, darum kümmert sich der Vermieter persönlich und mit viel Liebe. Die Strände neben dem Haus sind zum Baden vielleicht nicht soooo geeignet, aber für eine kleine Schnorchel-Runde und Erfrischung zwischendurch auf jeden Fall gut. Die Ausstattung im Haus ist tatsächlich sehr einfach, war für uns für die 2 Wochen aber vollkommen ausreichend (kochen war aufgrund der vielen Tavernen eh nicht nötig :-)). Die Lage insgesamt ist super, mit dem Mietauto ist man schnell bei vielen schönen Stränden/Buchten und tollen Tavernen!! Für alle Fragen stand Claudia immer zur Verfügung, sie gab uns auch Tipps für Strände, zum Tauchen (in Koutsounari) und für mögliche Ausflüge. Der Vermieter des Hauses wohnte in der zweiten Wohnung nebendran und hat uns fast täglich mit kleinen, typisch kretischen Leckereien versorgt. Alles in allem war es für uns ein sehr schöner Urlaub!! Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder! :-)

    The townhouse is set up for guests, everything is of very high quality as we use it ourselves. It is very spacious and bright. The kitchen is completely equipped with anything you would need to live not just a holiday. The storage both in the kitchen and bedrooms is more than adequate. all in all it is a very beautiful townhouse set in a very beautiful part of Crete.
    The apartment is set in the mountains with a 4 minute walk to the beach. It is next to Makry Gialos, a town with very good greek restaurants and many other types of cuisine.

    Welcome to Metaxakis Home, on the southeastern coast of Crete, in Mavros kolimpos , 18km from Ierapetra. This house is in a quiet place and overlooks the sea.
  • Descriptif et photos parfaitement fidèles à la réalité. Tout est neuf et équipé. ( le wifi cependant n'etait pas encore activé lors de notre passage - mais on capte parfaitement la 4G ) Superbe vue mer, terrasse agréable. La maison est au calme malgré le route en contrebas. Deux petites plages se trouvent à proximité de l'appart. Notre preference etant pour celle de droite avec des petites criques, et peu fréquentée. Manos et sa maman Maria, tous 2 très agréables, sont à l'écoute et très réactifs en cas de besoin. Nous avons même eu le privilège de visiter le duplex familial au dessus, lui aussi superbement equipé. C'est à regret que nous avons quitté cette location après une semaine sur place. Nous la recommandons chaleureusement. Merci à Maria et à Manos.

    Our place is close to Makrygialos in South East Crete and just 250m walk to unspoilt beach. There is a dishwasher, fridge-freezer, cooker, hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, 2 seater sofa bed, air conditioning, TV & DVD, WIFI, safe, iron & board. Our private roof terrace has sink, fridge, electric BBQ comfortable loungers with magnificent sea and mountains views. Pool towels are provided for your use on roof terrace & pool area. Parasol and cool-bag for the beach. Non-smokers only.
    We visit the apartment ourselves and have added an awning on the front balcony for shade from the afternoon sun and retractable fly screen on bedroom balcony to make a more comfortable night. We also provide 2 quality towels per person for use around the pool and on roof terrace. We fitted a safe for added security.
    Makrygialos is approx 2km from the apartment, where you will find a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafes. There are several supermarkets, a butchers, a bank with ATM, and a bakery which also has a delicious selection of cakes, chocolates and ice creams.

    Attractive self contained apartments finished in the traditional Cretan style; offering peace and tranquillity, yet ideally located in the rural outskirts of the charming and lively village of Makrigialos. Just a few minutes walk from the blue waters and sandy cove of Daskari!
  • We enjoyed our evening/night ! The appartement was clean and Pam welcomed us very kindly. Thanks !

  • Pam has been extremely kind and helpful. She has been and optimum source of information regarding the local places of interest. The house is very pleasant and in a very good position, just outside the noisy city centre and next to beautiful beaches.

  • Pam is a great host, very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure communicating with her. The room was spacious, clean and especially the kitchen was well equipped. We even found an umbrella and rackets for the beach which was nice :) The view of the mountains is a big plus, perfect for relaxing. Totally recommended!

  • I definitely love this place! I went to Makrygialos with my father for 3 days and our stay at Eliana Apartments has been perfect. The house was nice, very quite and surrounded by fields. Crossing the road, behind a hill, the sea, with a very big beach with few people and withouth umbrellas. Pam and her friend are so lovely, they suggest us places to see and also beautiful beaches wild and without tourists. I definitely miss that place, and also the sky with many stars, the crickets and the breeze of the Island... 3

  • The stay with Pam was very nice! We got very nice directions on how to find the apartment and it was easy to find. The apartment is a little away from the city and shops but is close (5-10 min walk) to a very nice, quiet beach. We really enjoyed our stay at the apartments. :)

    Silas2015-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • very nice and cosy apartment with a fantastic view of the mountains. i had a really relaxed stay there for a week, the beach is in walking distance and there are a few nice hikes around. pam was a wonderful host and came up with nice suggestions that made my holiday even more convenient.

    Judith2015-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I loved our holidays in Pams apartment. It is perfectly located. Surrounded by olive trees, and 5min walk away from the beatiful beach. It is the perfect place to avoid touristic places and discover the eastern part of Crete, which is marvelous. We rented a car and spoted some very qiuet and romantic coves by driving along the coast. Pam is a very nice and helpful person. She stood up until late night to welcome us. We defenitely would stay there again. Thank you again, Pam! Nina & Khoi

    3 rooms appartment on seaside. Front of the bay, big balcony-terrasse (6m by 2.50) and another balcony on the back mountain view. Cross only small road to be on the beach. Possible Survey child on the beach from the terrasse.
    You are front of the beach, only to cross road. 1st floor apartment, the big terrasse overlooks a fantastic view of the sea and the beach. Ideal for snorkeling. If you want you have another sandy beach with gentle slope (ideal for children) in Makrigialos center(5mn). It is located on a quiet lane, almost pedestrian ... Having a closed room with its own balcony mountain view, and a large queen size bed, with mosquito net on window and door. Also a simple bed in the living room-kitchen. Well equipped kitchen : wine glasses, electric coffee machine, manual espresso type, frigo-freezer, etc... Patio with table, chairs and two umbrellas. Makrygialos is a small resort offering many amenities including choice of restaurants right on the water, summer rental ‘’seadoo”, water skiing, paddle boats, etc. ... , Bike rental, scooter and car, or sea fishing boat; A few miles away, do not miss the Kapsa monastery clinging to a cliff and bordered Gorges Pervolakia. Also, many picturesques villages like Pefki Schinokapsala and others ... with their flocks of sheep and their shepherds. Sitia and Ierapetra bus several times a day.
    You have only a quiet small street to cross to the beach. We are between two restaurants and If you take a lunch there, they offer you free the beach chair and parasol.
  • Great location (yes, I love Makry-Gialos), great apartments! Sandy beach to the left, rocky beach to the right. Great view to marina.

  • Excellent accueil arrivée à l'appartement par les voisins,ami de Jean Marc ! Des fruits du thé et du cafe étaient deja à nos dispositions ! Je trouve ça Super c'est un plus que l'on n'a pas chez tout le monde. L'appartement très propre lumineux et il n'y manque rien ! La proximité à la plage est plus que parfaite il y'a juste une rue piétonne à traverser on y est ! La vue de la terrasse est magnifique ! Je recommande à 2000% !!!!!

    Suzan2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Très joli paysage, la plus belle plage de notre séjour en Grece. La proximité permet de s'y rendre en maillot et offre l'occasion de faire de grandes marches en soirée. L'endroit est paisible en cette période de l'année et la température douce. L'appartement offre toutes les commodités et l'accueil chaleureux et attentionné de Jean-Marc nous fait sentir comme chez soi. Jean-Marc nous a également présenté aux gens du coin dont un pêcheur. J'ai déjà hâte d'y retourner!

    Geneviève2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement est totalement indépendant, confotable avec une terasse sur le palier et une deuxième petite au nord dans la chambre Il est tout proche de la plage qui est familiale calme et propre à l ecart de l agitation touristique, et il y 2 tavernes sur place. Les amis de Jean Marc nous ont tres bien accueilli. Nous sommes restes 8 jours avec un adolescent et serions bien restés une semaine de plus. Tres bon rapport qualité prix, je recommande
