This garden apartment is totally unique on the Bayview development as we have arranged for a small change to the layout of the property which we believe seriously enhances the privacy and the living space in the apartment. The wardrobes have been moved to create a separated master bed ‘room’ area, without closing the room off entirely with a door which would reduce light to this area. The open/closed plan area has a number of major benefits including enhancing privacy in this area, providing a separation from the living and bed areas whilst still allowing the air conditioning to circulate throughout the whole area.
This area is in addition to the totally separate single bedroom, ensuring that separate private sleeping arrangements between the single bedroom and separate master double bed area are maintained.
The living area has a large footstool that opens out into a metal action single bed.
Further details outdoors:
The covered terrace area allows its use in most weathers and has a table and 4 chairs for Alfresco dining.
There are communal sunbeds provided around the pool.
25% deposit payable with booking. Balance due 8 weeks prior to arrival, if booking is 8 weeks or less prior to arrival full rental is payable with your booking.
£75 security deposit payable with your final payment. Refundable immediately on your return after property has been inspected by our housekeeper.
We will hold your requested dates for 48 hours to allow you to confirm flights.
The Crete region
Crete is the southernmost and largest of the Greek islands and as such enjoys a hot and sunny summer climate followed by a mild and inviting winter. It boasts more than 300 days of sunshine every year and is possible to swim from the islands south shores as early as April and as late as November.
There is something for everyone in Crete, whether you enjoy a relaxing holiday of lounging on one of the many sandy beaches or secluded coves, taking in the views from a beach bar/tavern, or if you are the adventurous/active type then there are towering sandstone cliffs with deep valleys and blue lakes that make an ideal location for hang gliding, hiking, climbing, mountain biking and walking. Or for the explorers amongst you there's a rich history and culture to be discovered with archaeological sites, temples, palaces and monasteries all across the island.
And not forgetting the Cretan people, they are renowned for their hospitality and a truly warm welcome awaits all visitors, along with a glass of Raki!!
The Makrigialos area
Makrigialos, meaning long beach, is situated in the south east of the island and is still an unspoilt resort compared to those in the north of the island, making it more suitable for couples and families wanting a more peaceful holiday and gives a truer flavour of Cretan life.
There is a long shallow sandy blue flag beach that is ideal for smaller children, that leads to a pretty fishing harbour. Along the beach side are a good selection of bars, tavernas, gift shops, supermarkets and water sports facilities, providing you with everything that you could need for a relaxing holiday. Each Friday there is a street market near the harbour entrance.
Close by to Makrigialos are the villages of Agios Stefanos and Pefki, just two of the many beautiful mountain villages, steeped in history, with narrow winding streets, old and beautifully renovated stone houses smothered in Geraniums, Bougainvillea, and vines and dotted with rustic tavernas serving traditional Greek food.
With its excellent climate, beautiful landscape and extremely warm hospitality it is no wonder visitors come back year after year.

Makri gialos is a truly unspoilt gem. The people are very friendly and accomodating and make you feel so welcome. The apartment was a little out from the main town which made it perfectly situated for the best of both worlds. A stroll through olive groves to a huge long beach or a longer walk or short car drive to the main town area (more beaches and quaint harbour). The apartment was furnished to a very high standard and felt cosy and homely. The facilities were excellent and the complex quiet as it was October which was perfect for us having a youngster. We would love to return as we loved the location and apartment. I have recommended this apartment to friends and family and congratulate the Pearson family (who own it) on keeping such a lovely place and being so helpful and friendly throughout the booking process. Thank you very much.

Our first visit to Crete at Bayview Apartments Makry-Gialos couldn't have gone better.
The apartments had everything we needed e.g. Sat TV, Video, fridge,dishwasher even provision of beach towels. A lovely setting 5 minutes by car or a 20 minutes walk to the centre of village. The Apartments are brand new there is a large swimming pool with plenty of sun - beds round a local beach and lovely views. We would definitely recommend apartments to anybody wanting a relaxing holiday in an unspoilt part of Greece. The village has numerous tavernas and a few bars of excellent quality at low prices. Our favourite bar was the Rock Bar in the centre of the village where mine hosts Clare & Chris are in their first season and are doing a great job making everybody welcome.
