Beautiful apartments with seafront location and lovely views. Very central and convenient for going out and about in Rethymno. Karen and Marinos could not be more friendly and helpful, even to the point of bringing treats, and being ever contactable to provide advice about anything, but especially regarding sightseeing. A very special place to stay, with great attention to detail.

I almost did't write this review as I'm repeating what has been said many times before.... This place is superb as are the hosts! We stayed in the Sea View suite in November & couldn't have asked for more. Very comfy Cocomat bedding, fab shower room, well equipped kitchen (with Bosch coffee maker!). Right in the heart of Rethymno, between... More

We stayed in this suite (Sea Panorama) in early October for 5 nights. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The hosts are very helpful. However, it is in a noisy location in a busy touristy part of Rethymno. This is particularly true on the weekends. Although opposite a beach, it is not possible to swim at this... More

Second time staying here and I would highly recommend this hotel again and again. Do not stay anywhere else. This is by far the best quality stay I have ever experienced. The residence is stunning, once again immaculately clean. Karen and Marino do everything in their power to make your stay perfect and it was. Thank you again for the... More

Karen runs a wonderful apartment. It is located a short walk about halfway from the blue flag beach to the restaurants in town. We had a terrace overlooking the water. The suite was large enough for our family of 5. Karen picked us up and dropped us off at the bus station.

We can not fault our stay in the Sea View apartment. Karen was a perfect hostess and a very talented young lady who has created a perfect holiday apartment in a fabulous part of Crete. We would agree totally with all the positive comments made and will definitely try to return in the near future. Liz and Mike

Casa Maistra is very well located, right in the centre of the old town. The view from the window is of uninterrupted seascape, with just a road between it and the beach which is lined with Palm trees. The Sea Panorama Suite is great. Karen thought of every little thing and there are many very thoughtful touches which make a... More

One of the best apartments we have ever been to! Very modern and stylish and in a great location. We will certainly be coming back in the near future. We stayed in the Sea Panorama suite which was fabulous...our teenage son thought it was great, with flatscreen TVs and fast internet. Our friends stayed in the Sea View apartment which... More

Casa Maistra lived up to all the excellent reviews. The accommodation was well furnished, clean and well located. The owners were helpful and friendly and the complimentary wine and morning bread and pastries were a welcome bonus. We stayed in both the Agora and Sea View suites and the Sea View was definitely worth the extra 20 euros a night... More

Finding this high quality apartment, with personal service, and attention to detail is rare. The apartment has everything you could need. I hesitate to set too high a bar for the gracious hosts, Karen and Marines, but I felt that if there was some need that wasn't fulfilled they would find a way to help solve any problem. The Agora...
