Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Makry Gialos - Garden Apartment

Kitchen, breakfast bar, sheltered dining area, double bed & single bedroom

Situated in an amazingly designed tasteful development in a lovely rural area with swimming pool and shared terrace, dining table and chairs in own sheltered balcony, ideal for two - three people to share. A great base for hiking, exploring remote beaches and chilling out!

A hire car is recommended, both to get there from either SItia or Heraklion airport and to explore the locality of Eastern Crete. There is a beach bar close by and the beach is fairly private. The village is only 30 minute walk away.

There is a bus service.

Ein Miete-Auto wird empfohlen.

The resort is close to the quiet fishing village of Makrigalos. The locals are extremely friendly and the weather is generally awesome! Laundry facilities are scheduled to be available on site by April 2011.

A full range of equipment for cooking in is provided. Free broadband internet service is included.

An ideal base for exploration of this relatively undiscovered area, TV and wifi internet connection.

South East Crete: There are lots of places to visit and things to do. For some ideas visit:

Es gibt viele Plätze zu besuchen und Dinge zu tun. Für etwas Idee-Besuch:


Eine ideale Basis für die Erforschung dieses relativ unentdeckten Gebiets, keines Fernsehens.

Deutch: Aufgestellt in einer erstaunlich dafür entworfenen geschmackvollen Entwicklung in einem schönen ländlichen Gebiet mit dem Schwimmbad und geteilter Terrasse, Esstisch und Stühlen im eigenen geschützten Balkon, Ideal für zwei - drei Menschen, um sich zu teilen. Eine große Basis für diejenigen, die herauskommen und tun mögen!

Ein Miete-Auto wird empfohlen, sowohl entweder von SItia oder von Heraklion Flughafen hierher zu kommen als auch die Gegend des Östlichen Kretas zu erforschen. Es gibt eine Strandbar nahe dabei, und der Strand ist ziemlich privat. Das Dorf ist nur 30 Minute gehen weg.

Der Ferienort ist dem ruhigen Fischerdorf von Makrigalos nah. Die Ortsansässigen sind äußerst freundlich, und das Wetter ist allgemein fantastisch! Wäscherei-Möglichkeiten stehen auf dem Plan, um auf der Seite vor dem April 2011 verfügbar zu sein.

Eine volle Reihe der Ausrüstung, um darin zu kochen, wird zur Verfügung gestellt. Freier Breitbandinternetdienst wird eingeschlossen.

Welcome Pack: Each rental comes with a Welcome Pack including lovely fresh bread, butter, jam, tea coffee and fruit to provide your first breakfast or snack when you arrive. Even if you arrive late at night, the pack will be waiting for you.

If you want to go with friends there are other apartments and villas within Bay View and contact with owners can be arranged so that you and your friends can all be accomodated!

Please note that there are other apartments available to rent locally and if you want to travel in a party then I can put you in touch with other owners to arrange lettings for the rest of your group.

Lovely apartment in Bayview

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to find a lovely clean apartment. All we needed was there. Lovely views across the swimming pools. The nearby pretty town of Makrys Gialos is full of cafes and resturants, and if you feel enegetic, it is just a pleasant walk away

So relaxing

  • 4 of 5

I had a wonderful stay here, it was so peaceful and I loved the pools and the gardens. It was easy to get to the beaches, to towns like Ierapetra and Sitia or even just into the village, although I mainly didn't bother. But you do need transport.

The property was well-equipped and well-maintained, the on-site management team was really helpful and I'd love to go back.

Holiday at 18G Bayview in June 2014

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at BayView late at night and found the apartment very easily thanks to the excellent directions.

The apartment is very modern, clean and spacious with a double bed that is part of the main room (a screen is provided incase you need privacy) plus another room with a single bed. Good sized wardrobes in the main room, plenty of hangers and drawers.

The kitchen is very well equipped - even has a dishwasher in the event that you plan to self-cater !

The airconditioning unit is very effective and there are also two fans. We found it especially good that the windows had fly screens so we could open the windows without the worry of insects.

The bathroom is really good for Greece. The shower is self-contained, there are storage cupboards for all your toiletries, and you can flush paper down the toilet - another modern twist - in many places in Greece you can't do this!

There is a router so you can log onto your own wifi, even though the complex has 2 free wifi connections, 18G's own router is especially good as no one else is using up your bandwidth. There are plenty of plug sockets, all in easy to access places! (Also unusual for Greece).

The laundry and a thorough clean is done once a week.

The terrace outside the front door has a table and 4 chairs, it is west facing so doesn't get the sun in the morning, but does later in the afternoon.

18G is very close to the three swimming pools which are spotlessly clean, there are also showers at the side of the pools and plenty of sunbeds.

The managers at Bayview Anja and Chris are very friendly and accommodating. They sell a six pack of 1.5 litres of water at €2 - very handy so you don't have to carry water a great distance. They also provided us with 2 beach towels as well as the 2 belonging to the owner.

We felt it was the perfect place for a restful holiday. In my opinion you do need a car as the roads around there are quite fast - we didn't feel safe walking, and it's quite a distance into Makrigialos in the heat of the day.

The area is a fab place to explore whether or not you are a walker. There are some superb beaches, some excellent tavernas with very reasonably priced meals and drinks.

We would definitely go there again.

Great place, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and well equiped with internet access which meant we could listen to the radio etc. The area is great for quiet unspoilt beaches and for walking with challenging hills too. Bars and restaurants are within 20 - 30 minutes on foot from the apartment. There is a lovely pool and outside area. I recommend going to town - Lidl in Ierapeter for example - to get supplies.

The apartment is air conditioned so there is escape from the heat of the day [and night] if needed.

A really nice touch is the welcome pack containing food and drink for your first meal and more.

Holiday at bay View

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a great base for walking and exploring with a fantastic clean pool, terrace and local bars just 20 minutes walk away. The free internet facilities were particularly useful enbling us to listen to UK radio and watch UK TV if we wanted to not that we had much time for this! Although late in the year, the temperature was fine and the local bars and restaurants offered great variety at reasonable prices. Hot tip - go to Lidl to stock up!!

Excellent stay at Bay View

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Bay View. The apartment was excellent and very clean. The pool was lovely and a very good size. The nearby town was very good with lovely beaches, plenty of places to eat, drink and shop. Excellent restaurant 2 km away (Dragons Cave). People very friendly. Scenery amazing but a car is a must. Would highly recommend this beautiful area of Crete and the apartments at Bay View.

Property is let by Lagada Management Crete registration number 1040Κ132Κ3140701 at the Greek National Organisation of Tourism.

This is a quiet corner of Crete, there are spectactular walks from the mountains to the coast. Tourists are catered for, there are many tavernas, sunbeds and shops along the coast road, but you can still find lots of deserted coves, you can walk in the hills and see very few people. Very nearby to explore are the Pefki Gorge, the Butterfly Gorge from Koutsouras and the Perivolaki Gorge. The summits of Dihkti and Thriptis are accessible and tempting. Ierapetra and Sitia are within half an hours drive for supplies and a bit of 'town'.

Das ist eine ruhige Ecke Kretas, es gibt Spectactular-Spaziergänge von den Bergen bis die Küste. Weil es viele tavernas, sunbeds und Geschäfte entlang der Küste-Straße gibt. Sehr in der Nähe, um zu erforschen, sind der Pefki-Engpass, der Schmetterling-Engpass von Koutsouras und dem Perivolaki-Engpass. Die Gipfel von Dihkti und Thriptis sind zugänglich. Ierapetra und Sitia sind innerhalb eines halben Stunde.

Crete is famous for its amazing honey.

The best supermarket I found was Lidl in Ierapeter, it ison the way there from Heraklion and has some delicious Greek wine at very reasonable prices!
