I have searched all over Greece looking for a place just like Maria's as I left it too late to book and couldn't get in. I couldn't find anywhere like this! What a view from the bedroom. No road to cross, just straight out of your room onto the lovely beach. We have returned several times and will definitely be... More

This is our second visit to Maria's and certainly won't be our last. Writing this sitting on our patio, gazing at the sea only a few metres away. Our idea of paradise but .......shhhhhh.........don't tell everyone! Maria's friendliness, generosity and hospitality together with the location and surroundings make for the perfect beach holiday. We love it here!

I stayed at Maria's apartment and I couldn't have asked for more. I had a room with an amazing sea view. It was very late at night when arrived and was welcomed by the whole family and also invited to a BBQ the following day which I thought was tremendously generous . The room was clean and tidy, the fridge... More

I made a booking asking for 2 separate beds since I was going there with my cousin just to hear Miss Maria asking me inappropriate questions like "Are you 2 male cousins or boy & girl?". It all got worse as soon as we arrived there "Why is the girl that is driving and not you?" Excuse me...??? We were... More

We first came to Crete over 20 years ago we came with the now defunct Kosmar. After a lengthy delay on the transfer bus at Heraklion (someones tea making equipment had gone missing) we started the longish transfer to Makrigialos. Silently we both felt despair at what seemed to be endless stops at grotty tourist locations and it was't filling... More

I stayed here for 1 week with my partner in July 2013 - whilst the accomodation formed the cheapest of the places we stayed in around crete, it was by far the best! The room is simple and homely, and has everything you need. Air con worked fine, bed was comfy, and the views from the balcony are spectacular! I... More

I've reviewed Maria's apartments before & like nearly everyone else think that they, & Makrigialos, are wonderful. This time we went with another couple & had the upstairs 2 bedoom apartment. It was great. 2 comfortable rooms that both opened on to a large balcony that faced the beach / sea. (1 little quible - only 1 had air con,... More

We have just spent 10 days in a little nice paradise; Makry-Gialos in Maria's room on the beach! Maria and her daughter are perfect hosts! The house is very pleasant, ideally situated on the beach. All which you need and more than you need is in your studio! The welcome is warm and frienfly. During your stay, Maria, perfect cooker,... More

We stayed at Maria's apartments for two weeks in October 2012, and it was a delightful beach break. Situated in the lovely village of Makry Gialos and literally backing onto the beach, the apartments were in an ideal location. Welcomed to our temporary home by Maria and her daughter Despoina, we were made to feel at home right away. Maria... More

A blissful holiday destination. We hadn’t visited Crete before and were enchanted with Makry Gialos and Maria’s Apartments. This isn’t an anonymous hotel or a shoddy studio set-up, rather it is an exemplary, old fashioned, extremely comfortable place to stay for one or two nights or weeks or more, in a gorgeous seaside town. Maria, Despina and Manilos are discrete... More
