You will arrive to find a modern Cretan garden apartment, finished to a high specification, just a few steps away from two delightful pools.

The apartment offers accommodation perfect for 4 (or maximum 6) people, with one double bed, a separate room with bunk beds, and a sofa in lounge area which opens up into another double bed. This is a perfect holiday home for couples and families alike!

The modern kitchen is fully fitted with a fridge, dishwasher, microwave, electric hob and oven, kettle, toaster and fully kitted out with quality cooking ware. Also provided is eating and drinking equipment to cater for all your holiday needs.

While you will probably want to spend most of your time by the pools or exploring the Island we also offer a TV, DVD player and mini Hi-FI system for your indoor entertainment.

Internet access is available via an ethernet port in the apartment.

There is ample wardrobe and storage space for your clothes and luggage.

Air conditioning keeps the apartment lovely and cool and there is a modern bathroom with excellent shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet. All bed linen and bathroom towels are provided, all you need to bring are your own beach / pool towels.

You can choose to dine on the indoor breakfast bench and stools or as most prefer on the private outdoor terrace to enjoy the scenery and weather. Sit out and watch the sky fill up with millions of stars. Alternatively, take a short trip into the nearby village of Makry-Gialos where there is a fantastic choice of restaurants and chill-out bars in which to spend your evening. The local hosts are keen to over-feed you and provide endless Raki.

All guests will receive a "things to do" info sheet from the owner prior to your stay, giving great recommendations on popular beaches, restaurants, places to visit and other tips to make the most of your holiday. Try Gorge Walks, visit monasteries, take a trip to the old Leper colony at Spinalonga or simply enjoy the local beaches and villages.

The Lassithi Prefecture region

Eastern Crete differs from the North-west end in that it remains largely uncommercialised and therefore charming and unspoiled. It is the "natural Crete" where beautiful mountains meet crystal clear turquoise waters. You will find quaint villages, stunning beaches and authentic fine Cretan cuisine – most noted for the use of fresh really tasty local ingredients, often grown by the restaurant owners themselves.

If you tire from lazing by the pool then jump in the car and within minutes you will be exploring the winding roads to stumble across dramatic views, secluded coves and discover Crete's natural environment that has a rich and diverse agricultural landscape with endless olive groves and vineyards.

The weather is invariably perfect, with year round sunshine and blue skies! There are many beaches close by, all of them with beautiful white sand and stunningly calm , clear waters, perfectly safe for children. Bring your snorkel and mask, there's lots to see! If you like watersports, there are plently of options from water-skiing to the flying fish - a huge ringo that takes off!

A little further afield you will find beautiful ports with open air restaurants and modern shops aplenty. Or you can visit any of scores of archaeological sites and learn about ancient Crete. If you like exploring on foot, why not do some gorge walking. There are more than 10 dramatic gorges to choose from not far from your Bayview base.


Bayview Resort is a modern, beautifully designed complex of apartments and bungalows set at the foot of the mountains, next to the sea. It really is the perfect place to relax and unwind by the pool with a good book or to use as a base to explore Eastern Crete. The resort is immaculately maintained with an onsite management team who can assist you should you need anything.

If you want a change from the pool, just a short stroll away is Bayview Beach, unspoiled, practically deserted and safe, with soft sand and crystal clear turquoise water.

The resort is situated just a few minutes drive from Makry-gialos which is a typical, quaint Cretan seaside village with friendly locals. You will find everything you need in terms of supplies should you wish to cook in the apartment but if you prefer to go out there are a wide selection of excellent bars and restaurants that run along the entire length of the village including on the seawall where you can drink and dine with the sea lapping at your feet.

As these restaurants are right on the foreshore they offer spectacular views across the Lybian sea, particularly at night when stars fill the sky and the moon casts a beam of light across the water.

With the many local beaches and restaurants, beautiful scenery of the Makry-gialos area and the inviting pool and comfort of Bayview Resort itself, many visitors are tempted to go nowhere else as Bayview offers the perfect holiday to those looking for rest and relaxation.

"This place is paradise!"

We had an amazing holiday here. The apartment was small but clean and well equipped and nicely decorated. It was right by the pools and the children spent most of the time swimming. The gardens were beautifully maintained and the owners were welcoming, very friendly and helpful with any queries we had. The complex is situated out of the main village, but we had a hire car and liked it being quieter and away from the busy village. There are some beautiful beaches near by - our favorite was Green beach which has hammocks you can hire and a lovely taverna - the best food we ate in Crete. A wonderful holiday - thank you! We thoroughly recommend this property.

"Tranquil setting with plenty of hospitality"

Beautifulful setting. Car definitely needed but many retauarants a short taxi ride away, including the lively harbour. Flat was clean and had everything you needed, including a dish washer. Our flat was perfectly positioned 10 steps away from the pool. Would strongly recommend the resort and the flat to people looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

"Our best holiday ever. Crete is beautiful."

We stayed in Amanda's apartment last summer with our 2 young boys (plus for a few days my inlaws) for two weeks. Despite a long drive, we were delighted on arrival that the resort is so secluded and the welcome so warm and friendly. The apartment is not massive but was very luxurious for the little time we spent in it. It was so lovely to have a comfortable bed. Most of our time was spent by the pool and off exploring the island. Makrigyalos is a gem - some great restaurants and a very child friendly beach. We particularly enjoyed Scramble Cove. Thank you Amanda for the great price and top tips!

"Had a perfect holiday!"

We had a lovely 2 week stay here in the summer holidays. The apartment is very modern and clean. It was furnished to a high standard and had everything you needed. We did a mixture of sitting by the pool which was perfect for the days you didn't want to venture out and also hired a car to travel to beaches such as 'scramble cove'. The restaurants in Makrialos are really good. We'll definitely be back!

"Lovely apartment, in reach of beautiful beaches in an unspoilt area of Crete."

The apartment itself is beautifully presented, well equipped and in a great position for access to the pool. At this time of year it was very quite and we more often than not found if we chose to spend some time by the pool, we had it to ourselves. Access to the nearest beach is only a short walk. However, I would recommend having a car as there are some incredible beaches only a short drive away and they are deifinitely worth exploring. The shops and tavernas of Makrygialos are a two minute drive, it can be walked but there is no pavement and the road is unlit. There are a number of good restaurants/tavernas, plenty of mini-markets and a fantastic bakery which has the most amazing cakes (we tried a few!!). Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday or to do a little exploring, Bay View is ideally positioned. We loved the fact the place wasn't crowded with British Bars and retained it's Cretan charm. If you chose to go, remember to pack your snorkelling gear, the sea is crystal clear and the rocky outcrops provide great snorkelling. Will definitely be returning.

"A stylish interior with everything you need in a scenic unspoilt part of Crete."

The apartment was lovely, very stylish and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. It is modern and feels quite luxurious, although small it is very cleverly designed with the double bed to the back of the kitchen and sitting area so feels seperated although in the same room. The air conditioning was much appreciated as we travelled in July! The children had a small bedroom with bunk beds which was fine for them as they are only young. The swimming pool is kept immaculately clean and there are plently of comfortable sunbeds. They were still building a second phase of the apartment complex with another swimming pool which was a surprise as we had thought this was finished however it did not detract from our enjoyment. The owner had provided us with lots of useful information about places to go nearby and great directions. You would definately need a car and try to book a bigger engine as it is quite mountainous ! There are lots of lovely bays and deserted beaches to discover aswell as historic ruins etc. We especially enjoyed nearby Green Beach where you could hire a hammock and shade and eat in the traditional greek taverna on the beach. I would say the only drawback was the design of the terrace at the front of the apartment as it is not seperated from next doors and I enjoy sitting out especially when the children are in bed so it was not very private-again this was really our only criticism other than being surprised on arrival that building work was still ongoing. It is close to the pool so is great to be able to watch the children if you are not quite ready and they have already took off to jump in the pool! We had a fantastic time overall !!

"Perfect for getting engaged!"

We loved staying in the apartment. It was perfect for the 3 of us. The kitchen was well equipped, the apartment immaculate and we loved it being on the ground floor so close to the swimming. I would highly recommend staying in this peaceful, yet family friendly apartment and area.
