Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
The house is located at the suburbs of Malia town, in a complex of 2 apartments. Just upon the beach, the house is 5 minutes away from the closest supermarket, in a walking distance and 10 minutes walk from the main beach road, where you can find the local bars, pubs, tavernas and shops! Finally, the summer house is located just 15 minutes away from the Archeological place “Malia Palace” and the famous beach “potamos”.
It is a must for every one, such as a couple or a 4 persons family (3 persons+ 1 baby), or even for friends!
The unique location of the house, just up on the beach, is a privilege! The beach is almost private, as you cannot see it from the road and only some local people know about it!
The bay is naturally protected from the wind and that makes it a place where all the months you can swim without waves.
The apartment is a 30 m2 summer house that can accommodate 3 persons and 1 baby. There is a kitchen where you can prepare normal meals, also there is a dining area and a sitting area, 1 double bed and 1 SOFA bed (a baby cot can be provided).
Outdoor. The big yard is about 200 m2 where you can relax day and night, sitting on the swing chairs or down at the beach, on the beach chairs.
The property also provides a private parking area and a barbeque area.
All the outdoor places, such as the beach, the yard and the parking area are shared with the second apartment of the complex.
The house is cleaned once in a week and towels and linens are also changed once in a week. Maid services can be arranged for additional charge if you wish more than the times that are included in the price.
Transfer Service . If the reservation is over a week, then we provide a shuttle service from the airport free of charge (one way, from the airport, not to the airport). Otherwise, we can offer transport services upon request. Please note that this service is extra charge.(45 euros /way/vehicle)

About this location
The Heraklion Prefecture region
Malia is located 37 kilometers east of Heraklion, on the way to Agios Nikolaos. The main road seems to divide the town in two, the old Malia at the foothill of Mount Selena and the newer part towards the shoreline.
Malia is an unusual small town, unlike any other in Crete. It used to be known for its delicious potatoes. But times changed, the tourists started coming to Crete and the potato fields of Malia were replaced by hotels large and small, tavernas and bars.
Tourism eventually created a town with two different faces, like the famous split personality described by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886:
- On the one hand is Dr Jekyll, the old Malia with its narrow streets, houses with bougainvilleas and little tavernas with live Greek music.
- On the other is Mr Hyde, the coastal resort with its bars, nightclubs and frenzied nightlife of young tourists from 11 at night into the early hours
If you are the Dr Jekyll type, when night falls stay in old Malia south of the main road. If you are a Mr Hyde, then coastal Malia awaits you for an endless party each night.
If, like most of us, you have a little of both Jekyll and Hyde in you, enjoy all that Malia has to offer, but within reason.
