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

We stayed for one week in July, in Maria's Place and everything was superb!! The sea was fantastic with shallow water and sandy beach. The nice tree outside the house offers true shadow! The owners of the establishment are really friendly Cretan people and discreet at the same time. They are always there to help you. The room had a... More

I stayed in Makrygialos for 2 weeks in July 2014, and this place almost ruined my holiday. Why this place is in the hotel listing in Tripadvisors list for for Makrygialos, I don't understand, this is not a hotel, this should be placed under others, and with a very low score as well. I also question some of the reviews... More

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
