Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Makrygialos - Penthouse Apartment Crete

Modern, 1 bed sleeps 3, near Makryiaglos, air-con, internet, roof garden

1 Bed Penthouse apartment 250m to beach, 2km from pretty fishing village of Makryiaglos, S. East Crete. Balconies to front & rear & one of only a few large roof gardens on the resort, with seating area, sunbeds, table & chairs etc. Good sized double bed, lots of fitted wardrobe space. Apartment has air conditioning, internet access, dishwasher, TV, DVD, fridge-freezer, cooker, microwave etc, with solar glazed windows & mosquito nets, providing all that you need for a relaxing holiday or romantic break. We also have a sofa bed available. The Bay View Resort is very attractive with swimming pools & other facilities, creating a friendly, community feel. There is car parking & BBQ area to the rear of the apartment & all around are landscaped gardens with seating areas & a stone amphitheatre, with beautiful views of the sea & mountains. Makryiaglos means 'Long Beach' in Greek, the blue flag beach stretches for several kms past a small marina, tavernas, restaurants, shops, hotels, gym and spa.

What is there to do nearby?: Dependent upon your preferences, you can relax by the pool or on the roof garden, or take the short walk down to the beach. You can walk or drive to Makryiaglos and try out their 'long beach' or visit one of the many small restaurants along the shoreline or near the fishing port. There are a few lively bars and Tavernas in Makryiaglos in the evening, or you may chose to visit one of the many restaurants all within a few minutes of Bay View. Nearby towns of Sitia and Ierapetra can be reached within 30 mins and have shopping and nightlife to suit most tastes. The hills and mountains are beautiful and great for walking, cycling or climbing. You can go fishing, sailing, snorkelling, jet-skiing or play golf on the island, or just drive around exploring the many villages, towns, ancient ruins or beaches. You can take a ferry from Ierapetra to the beautiful unspoilt Chrissi Island, which is a tropical paradise. The Mikri Polis Hotel in the town has a gym, spa and restaurants available to use.

clean, nice decor, just right size for a couple

  • 4 out of 5
The apartment was nice and clean and just what we needed, some may find it too small but for us it was a brilliant base to explore crete from. Managment on site were very helpfull too. For us the best beach was near dragons cave, beautifull sand and privacy, if you want a taverna and sunbed though its not the place. The gorges around are beautifull and make good walks. Walking up to pefki and eating lunch at the taverna there was one of our best days. Restraunts I recommend are the dragons cave, the one in pefki, and the olive tree in the harbour of makrygialos which is owned by the same guy who owns the one in pefki. One day we travelled to vai, I geard alot about how nice a beach it was, I wasn't impressed, I thought the beaches around makrygialos were better. The sand was course and hurt your feet and it was too far just to see some palm trees. All In all we really enjoyed our stay.

gemütlicher Urlaub

  • 4 out of 5
Schöne Ferien in einem fast makellosen "Resort".
Wenn man das Glück hat und ein Appartement mit Dachterrasse ergattern kann dann wird man schöne Stunde Abends verbringen können.
Alles in allem war Preisleistungsverhältnis überragend ohne gross ins Detail zu gehen.

Small but comfortable with fantastic views.

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks along with our teenage son. The apartment has everything you need for a self catering holiday and although the living room is quite small, the outdoor areas more than compensate with a balcony, with table and six chairs and roof terrace with comfortable seating area and another dining table and chairs. The views over the bay from the roof terrace are stunning at all times of day and evening. The bedroom is a decent size with plenty of storage space but was extremely hot during our stay, even with the large fan provided. There is air conditioning in the living room, it would have been nice to have in bedroom too. The pools are a good size and there are plenty of sun beds around them.
We never attempted to walk into Makrygialos in the evenings as the road from the apartments to the start of the resort was unlit with no pavement. We had a car during our stay but there are local taxis to visit the resort if required.
The main resort had a good selection of restaurants and bars and the beach was a great place to spend the daytime.
Overall we had an enjoyable, relaxing holiday and would recommend Bayview.

Perfect holiday in Makrigialos

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here at the end of July ( I know, a bit slow to write the review!). We had an amazing week here and the Penthouse was perfect for our needs. The view from the rooftop is fabulous with a unspoilt sea view. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed breakfast every morning on the balcony. It's tastefully decorated inside and the complex itself is obviously well managed. The site managers were very helpful too. The pools were lovely and the gardens well kept. The town was really nice and friendly and we particularly loved the meals we had at a Dragons Cave (we went 3 times!). Will definitely return next year.

Compact, great views, needs some TLC.

  • 3 out of 5
Bay View is a nice, clean, friendly complex, well situated for peace and quiet. The Site Manager was very helpful.
a car is essential, as it is a 1.4km walk to the village of Analipsi / Makrygialos, but there are no street lights on the road, so night time walks are a bit tricky.
Apartment 14P is very compact with no living area to speak of (there is a very shabby sofa in the kitchenette). There is no air con in the bedroom, so a fan is essential (we were given one on request, from Site Manager). The only TV is in the bedroom, but as it was so hot there, we never used it or the DVD.
The listing refers to a barbecue - this is a very small tin bucket on the balcony.
The roof 'garden' is shabby - all of the plants are long-dead from lack of watering and the cushions on the seating areas are stained and badly ripped.
Apart from the need for a little care and attention, the Apartment was comfortable, and as it is in a very elevated position, the views over the complex and to the nearby pebble beach, and across to Makrygialos is wonderful.
Makrygialos is a lovely village with a great selection of Tavernas & Restaurants. Definitely worth a visit is Petra Bay Restaurant - family run, fantastic food at extremely reasonable prices, and you get free starter and dessert! We will definitely return to Makrygialos, maybe not to Apt 14P.

Owner's Response: Update....We have had a full renovation of the roof garden including a watering system for the plants and new cushions for the loungers. The furniture in the living room has been replaced and solar window coverings upgraded.
Hi John,
Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and take your comments about the repairs required on board and thank you for bringing it to our attention. The management have been given a list of things that need replacing and we have already started this process. I'm just sorry that you were not able to benefit from this during your stay. The barbecue we refer to is the main one on site not in the apartment. We would love to have you back at Bay View and hopefully at 14P! Kind regards.

relaxing break

  • 5 out of 5
i stayed at bay view with my wife and had a lovely relaxing week. the weather was great and the staff on the site were very helpful and knowledgeable, i would definitely recommend to others.

the town of makriaglos is very welcoming with plenty of restaurants and places to sit and have a beer or coffee near the beach.

the apartment is modern and clean, tastefully decorated and had plenty of storeage space, the balcony is lovely in the morning, but hot in the afternoon. the roof top garden is superb and the views are magnificent.

we will go to bay view again next year, but this time with friends.

14 P is a one bedroom penthouse apartment on the Bay View Resort just outside the small fishing village of Makrygialos Crete. The village has shops, restaurants and tavernas and a delightful marina, which is in regular use with locals and tourists alike. The apartment has superb sea and mountain views and is just a short 250 m walk to the sandy beach. 14 P is fully furnished with modern appliances and necessary air-conditioning, with balconies to the front and rear and a large roof terrace overlooking the whole resort and nearest swimming pool. The resort has two pools and places to sit and relax outside. The area of Makryiaglos is tranquil and authentic and whilst there are plenty of bars and tavernas, this is not the place for wild partygoers! The surrounding area is ideal for sunbathing, relaxing, mountain-biking, hiking, fishing or rock climbing. Views are breathtaking all around this part of Crete and deserted beaches are easily found, with delightful places to swim in the shallow warm sea.
