We just returned from a four night stay at Maria's apartments, and we loved them! The bedroom is exactly as in the photos, plus there is a little kitchen and another bed in the kitchen/dining area. The location is really great, right on the beach. There are beach chairs that are assigned to each room. Maria and her daughter Despoina are remarkably friendly and helpful, and are one of the pluses of these apartments. The room was very clean when we arrived.
A couple of minuses:
-Don't rely on their towels. They are ok for the shower, but not for the beach, and they were not changed throughout our stay. Also, the rooms were not cleaned. I thought their website said twice weekly cleaning, but perhaps I am mistaken. We were there for 4 nights, so maybe we missed a cleaning day??
-No internet: The whole little town is supposed to be a hotspot, but there was no signal in our room or on the balcony. Also, Maria has wifi, but the signal does not reach the room, so not much good.
-If you're tall, then the bed is not for you.
-Make sure you bring plenty of mosquito repellent: This has nothing to do with the hotel owners, the mosquitos are just everywhere....
I highly recommend these apartments for your Crete vacation.
Thanks Maria and Despina!
