We had the most wonderful holiday last year and now, with an English winter upon us, we're already thinking about next year's...! Maria and Despina were such wonderful hosts, warm, friendly and generous. The sound of the sea is a constant soundtrack to a holiday here. Our apartment, was literally on the beach. The French windows of the bedroom, lead...

We booked this accommodation through Simply Crete where it is known as 'Despina Beachfront apartments, Makrigialos'. Maria is the mother, Despina, her daughter. All the family are lovely people, very warm and friendly. Maria brings little freshly baked treats to us daily. The balcony has been described in earlier reviews as shared, but is now very private as a partition...

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...

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...

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???

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...

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...

“All rooms are delightful but have to say we favour the ground floor beach front rooms as nothing can beat falling asleep and waking up to the sound of gentle waves lapping only metres from your door.”

“Maria has two different properties, both directly on the beach, but only one has ground floor guest rooms, both have sea facing balconies. If you want to be on the ground floor next to the sea, make sure you mention this when you contact them.”

“They're all lovely with private beach access, private sun loungers and an outdoor shower to clean up before you back to the apartment. Apartments for couples upstairs with great views out to sea and back up to the mountains. Family apartments downstairs with an enclosed area for kids.”
