From the moment we booked our reservations on line, the owners were responsive to our requests and our needs. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and that our stay was comfortable. We checked in late, but they were there to greet us with a bottle of wine, a bottle of water and a box of Cretan pastries. Absolutely wonderful family owns and runs this establishment. It was a perfect home away from home while vacationing in beautiful Elounda. We can't wait to return next year!

Owners were very friendly

Apartment is up a very steep hill & just off the main (busy) road that goes straight through Elounda, which on the whole is quite a charmless town.

Easy to book and the whole family were very welcoming, helpful, generous and kind. Michael was waiting for us on arrival with his car to take us up the short but steep hill at 1 am. Definitely beyond the call of duty when he had already emailed arrangements on what to do when we arrived. We were able to stay in the apartment until our pick up time of 6:15 pm, which was excellent. Huge, spacious balcony in apartment 6 and we were glad of the air conditioning ( no extra charge) as it was very hot when we were there. Easy to walk to beaches on either side and to the central square. Plenty of places to eat and drink around and about.

Location was fab! Only 100metres down some steps and across a little road to the waters edge. The apartment was spacious, clean and had all you would need. View from our first floor spacious balcony was good as we could see the sea and Spinalonga peninsula beyond the buildings in front. The second floor balcony would have been an amazing view. Excellent value for the spacious facilities and location. We were only two minutes walk from restaurants by the water, 30 seconds from a shop, 10 minutes from Elounda beach and 15 minutes from the unspoilt peninsula. The owners definitely went the extra mile as we arrived after midnight and they were still friendly and welcoming. They even let us use the apartment until 2pm on our last day (and then stored our suitcases) as we didn't travel until 5pm. Where else would you get that? I would love to go back both to Elounda and Markakis Apartments.

had a short 3 day stay, the location was not good for us because of my husbands disabilities, so we probably would not return, but would certainly recommend it to family and friends . The owners were extremely kind and helpful, we also received help from the neighbours. Elena the hairdresser opposite helped us to track down a taxi which failed to turn up.

the traffic on the road was a times was fast and dangerous

We arrived at midnight, but owner was there to meet us, and help with our luggage, also during our stay one Sunday morning we were brought home baked pastries and Greek coffee for breakfast, even though we were totally self catering, which was a lovely touch. The location was very central, beach, restaurants etc., where all within a 5 minute walk. I would certainly recommend these apartments. The owners were wonderful.

Very welcoming owner. Gorgeous location. Extremely clean, good facilities ( toasty maker, microwave, very good wi fi) Lovely views.

Owners - genuine, honest and generous. Property: convenient location, well presented, excellent maid service. There really isn't any negatives about these apartments we loved our stay there and WILL go back next year.

struggled with this question: In Apt 1 there is some glazing between the lounge and bedroom- when lounge light is on it is very bright in the bedroom. BUT not a major issue.
