The villa's contemporary design is tasteful and charming and has been well thought out with balconies and seating areas offering breathtaking views down to the sea over the surrounding olive groves or up to the imposing backdrop of the White Mountains . Shade is provided for those who need to hide from the Cretan sun while also allowing plenty of access to the sun worshippers by the pool. It would be possible to spend a tranquil holiday up here on the hill top surveying the delightful rural surroundings, relying on local tavernas to supply evening meals,without venturing any further afield. Yet an easy and pleasant walk along the rural road through olive groves and fruit trees will take one to the buzz of Platanias where restaurants , bars and all sorts of tourist amenities await those who might like to dance the night away .And Chania itself with culture, good restaurants and some serious shopping is only a 15 minute drive away .A great stay - we will definitely be back !

                                                                                                      My husband and I stayed here for ten nights in September. The spacious apartment is situated down a short unmade up single track road about five-ten minutes' stroll from nearest restaurants. It was fairly quiet if you can ignore the neighbour's dogs. The popular nearby beaches have free sun beds and umbrellas owned by the numerous restaurants but you are expected to buy food or drink from the establishments. For me the beach/es (one huge bay comprising of several parts) were too crowded and the people using the adjacent beds were close enough to read your book. However there were areas where you could put a towel down and get some privacy. Other, quieter or less commercialised beaches are a short car drive away. The apartment was clean and had a nice balcony (distant sea view over rooftops) and was equipped well although the kettle didn't work and there was insufficient cutlery for two (let alone four) when we arrived but this was quickly rectified by the owner when she visited us the next morning. The pool was not large but was cleaned on our first day. Plenty of sun loungers but I didn't see any parasols. We only used the area once. I was disappointed that the air conditioning was an additional cost, which is not made clear at any time prior to arrival (unless it was in the small print) so we suffered the heat. Likewise use of the safe, which was sunk into a bedroom wall, was subject to an additional charge (how much does a static safe cost to maintain apart from a lost key, which could be charged for?). Despite the negatives mentioned above, our stay at Despina Apartments was enjoyable and I would recommend it for couples or families looking for a holiday in a lively, friendly resort with a large variety of bars, restaurants and entertainment with a huge beach (partly sandy and partly light shingle) which is safe for swimmers (life guards are situated every few yards along the beach). We would return to Crete but not necessarily to Aghia Marina but it is a popular resort for many who return year after year.

It was perfect! We had the sea view apartment and had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean, well sized and had a wonderful sea view. Xristina and her husband were available if needed and often dropped products from their farm. The location of the apartment was ideal and we will definitely be staying here again. This holiday was our 7th year visiting Crete and we found the location and apartment perfect for what we wanted from the holiday. Excellent holiday, excellent apartment, excellent location.
