“Excellent, warmly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Casa Maistra Residence is a beautifully renovated accommodation with 3 apartments / suites of different size in the old town of Rethymnon.

My and my family (children of 10 and 15) stayed at the Sea Panorama Suite in July 2012.

The location is ideal – along the waterfront boulevard in the middle of the old town of Rethymnon. And with the Fortezza some hundred meters away and distance to the beach about 500 m.

The lovely owner Karen offers help and assistance in all matters. She made us feel very welcome from the first e-mail until the end of our stay. Love to come back one day.

The spacious and welcoming Sea Panorama Suite (80 m2; 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom on two floors) has air conditioning and everything you need for a perfect vacation: well-equipped kitchen, wifi, laptop, beach towels, parasols and much more. This suite has a balcony with sea view. The pictures displayed by the owners on the website are as truthful as pictures can be.

Cleaning should be ordered the night before; clean towels are available at all times. If there is something I missed, it would be a second toilet for a family of four. You should note that there are lots of stairs in this house, which you might want to consider if travelling, for instance, with small children.

All in all, I agree with previous reviewers: Casa Maistra is a special place to stay – I warmly recommend Casa Maistra!

Having stayed at the Casa Maistra Residence (Sea View Suite) for 10 days bewteen 28th June and 8th July I can honestly say that this is the best accommodation I've experienced. This renovated traditional venetian townhouse has all the modern facilities required for a comfortable stay, but retains all its old character and has been tastefully decorated by its owners Karen and Marinos who were perfect hosts and made us feel totally relaxed and at home.
It is centrally situated for the beaches, restaurants and sightseeing opportunities. I would highly recommend and will definitely return.

The rooms are huge and gorgeous!!
It is a complete apartment, perfect for the whole family. It is very well decoratef and have everythong you might need for daily use.
Karen is very nice and friendly. She really helped making our trip perfect! We had to changr the dated on the day before and she did't charge us for that!
The location is perfect: inside the historic centre and in front of the beach. The only problem is the big trouble to park, but that's a problem with all the historic centres.

Karen and Marinos were the best hosts we ever had – friendly, caring, professional – pretty much like family we never met before. From the moment they picked us up from the busstation till the moment we left, they made us feel like royalty. The apartment was designed and equipped with so much thought and care – it is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed in. The linen and towels, right through to the coffee and wine, everything was of the finest quality. Freshly baked bread and ‘sweets’ was delivered to our door frequently; this was so special. Karen and Marinos went the extra mile to ensure that we had the best time possible. The ocean view was super and the location perfect within the buzz of the old town of Rethymnon. We would encourage anyone to stay at Casa Maistra as it will make the holiday of your life.
The weather was not to warm, never cold, just perfect. May is a good time of year to visit this region.

Room Tip: Sea View is an excellent option, well worth paying a bit extra even though we didn't need the ex...

I dont normally leave reviews but i was so impressed with Casa Maistra i felt i couldnt not leave a review. We are a young couple who stayed for 3 nights in Casa Maistra and were absolutely delighted with our choice. The accomodation is spacious, absolutely beautifully decorated and we were wanting for nothing, Karen and Marinos had literally thought of everything. They made us feel incredibly welcome and provided great advice on where to eat etc. They also very kindly picked us up and dropped us off at the end of our stay making us feel like old friends rather than guests.The stay in Casa Maistra made our visit to Rethymnon and i would highly recommend, do not miss out!

We are a family with 2 young kids (3.5 and 9) and we were fortunate enough to book 2 nites in Casa Maistra in April 2012. In summary, we loved it. We had the apartment that covers the top 2 floors and it was excellent. There is a lot of space; 1 large living room with an excellent sea view, 2 spacious bedrooms upstairs and even more spece with a couch between the two. The whole apartment is very tastefully decorated by the owners (Karen and his husband). They are wonderful couple and they go out of their way to make you comfortable. You don't feel like customers, they make you feel like valued guests in their home. We are (my wife) obsessed with cleanliness and it still exceeded our expectations. The location is right at the heart of the old city very close to everything you want to see. They also have 2 smaller apartments in addition to the one I described above. Net, if you are going to Rethymnon, this is the place to stay. We strongly recommend.
