Shhhhhhhh!!!! Don't tell everyone!! Seriously though, it is a very, very special place. We visited for the first time in 2013, returned in 2014, we are returning in June ....(can't wait) , and will definitely be leaving a deposit to secure two weeks in 2016 before we leave. This says it all, really. Absolutely perfect.

We had another great two weeks in July at Marias place this year, this time with the whole family plus friends. Maria has two properties that are a couple of houses apart, both directly on the beach. We had booked both the ground floor beach studios, which are in the second property just down the road. What can I say... More

Apartments are beautiful and right on the beach. Sun loungers out front and the warmth of the Libyan Sea. Maria and her family are lovely and will do everything they can to make your holiday an enjoyable one. About half of the visitors to Makry-Gialos are Greek, the rest are from all over the world. Good local restaurants or use... More

We have just returned from our 4th visit in 5 years. It's such a wonderful place. We love the place. It's beautifully clean and tidy, and only seconds from the sea. What more could you ask for??? Maria, Despoina, and Manolis are lovely genuine people and really look after us. Whilst relaxing on the beach you can also pop back... More

This is a perfect place for a beach retreat. We had a studio, beach front - a few steps from the sand and the sea. Just perfect! The room was well kept with excellent amenities. We even cooked some quick dinner to have on the patio, with the beach only for us! The home produced olive oil is excellent! Maria... More

The family of Maria was very heartful to us and made us feel very confortable. The apartment is carefully arranged and has a romantic balcony. The view stunned us every morning and the sandy beach infront seems like a private one. Its the perfect place to stay for some quite and relaxing days in the south of Crete. Thanks to... More

We have just spent 8 days at these apartments. The location is superb, our apartment doors opening onto a lovely beach with safe swimming and plenty of shade in the August heat. Maria and Despina could not be more hospitable stocking our fridge with wine, fruit, salad, eggs, fruit juice etc before our arrival. The restaurants in the resort were... More

For 10 days in July 2014 we stayed at Maria's Apartments. We arrived late at night and to our surprise Maria and her family were there waiting for us, and had bought us some food so our start could be good. From our studio we had the most beautiful view of the beach and the sea. Our host family were... More

It was an amazing experience staying at Maria's place. Maria and her family are the most helpful, friendliest people we have ever met. When we arrived here, the fridge was filled with lots of goodies and we had fresh fruit waiting for us. Whenever we needed something, Maria was right there. We will recommend this place to everybody who wants... More
