“The apartment is just a few meters from the pretty harbor in Makry Gialos - and it's even nicer than the photos. The beautiful terrace offers privacy and relaxation. The apartment itself is exceptional, beautiful as in a living magazine and yet thoughtful and functional. Wonderfully coherent design and great decoration, very big and everything there, what you need - really everything! Starting with a washing machine, iron, ironing board, followed by hair dryer, shampoo, shower gel, a great kitchen equipment, more than enough hangers and much more you are completely supplied. You could spend months there and really feel at home. Zeta's nice mother Christina discreetly in the background ensures that everything is really right and the guest feels very welcome - water, a few sweet treats and some fruit we received as a welcome present. After a few days you get fresh bedding and fresh hand and bath towels. Finally, there was a bottle of homemade raki and olive oil. Makry Gialos itself may not be charming for a passenger, but a short walk from the apartment takes you to a charming piece of Crete. A delightful little harbor with the traditional white houses, a small fine beach in the village with beautiful sand, many good tavernas and - above all - you can still feel the much-cited Cretan hospitality. Incidentally, one also learns Greek life, because even the locals go out in the evening to eat and celebrate. Moreover, Makry Gialos is an ideal starting point from which to explore Crete's beautiful and still more primitive East: Xerokampos with its exceptional beaches, tranquil Sitia, delightful mountain villages, the enchanting Chandras Plateau, the beautiful Kouremenos beach and much more. Definitely rent a car! In conclusion, one of the best Airbnb accommodations we have encountered in recent years!”

“The Traditional Olive House is a great place to stay. It provides all the necessary for an independent holiday, away from the crowds, but near enough should you want it. The house is located outside the town, in a quiet location (even with a road running past) with a great view of the sea ahead, beyond the olive trees, typical greenhouses and sheep. The nearest beach is a few minutes walk away and is virtually empty all the time, tourists staying mainly on the town's beaches around the hotels. Go a little further by foot or by car for equally tranquil beaches. The house is an ideal base to venture out from and discover this wild, largely un-developed, side of Crete. Whilst visiting the lovely places of interest and beaches recommended by our fabulous host, Roula, the drives can take some time getting to there, but are through amazing landscapes, breathtaking views and some rather hairy mountainous roads. The destinations are always worth it for the quite, unspoilt Crete that we we were looking for. Roula was the perfect host, attentive, informative and helpful, as well as friendly and approachable. The house was very clean and was cleaned, including bed linen and towels being changed, twice in our 12 day stay. Anything we needed, be that information or other, was dealt with quickly and efficiently. The family living upstairs were discreet and quite. Some evenings we made dinner with the more than adequately equipped kitchen and ate outside on the plant covered patio, other times we ate out in one of the many restaurants to chose from. We found in general, the food was better quality and cheaper outside Makrigialos and there was always plenty of it. We had a fabulous stay at Roula 's, and being such good value, have plans to return.”
