About Steve & Julie Philpot
My husband Steve and I live in the UK and have two teenage daughters. We own and run two businesses, one in the construction industry, and another in interior design. Our aim for The Loft has always and will always be to offer our guests the highest standard of luxury rental accommodation that we look for ourselves whenever we travel. We take great pride in what we offer to our clients and we strive to present the property to the highest possible standard. The Loft showcases my passion for interior design, and is very much our house in Makrigialos as well as a property available for rent, which is why it has been designed to be luxurious & individual, and not a generic rental property.
Steve & Julie Philpot purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Steve & Julie Philpot chose Ierapetra
The Loft is the second of our properties at Lagada Resort. We bought a Townhouse in 2009 that we also offer for rent. Because of it's success we wanted the opportunity to offer the most prestigious property at Lagada Resort nd we hope we have achieved this. The reasons we chose to own property here are simply that Makrigialos is a truly magical place; the views from our properties are just unbelievable; and the combination of style and available amenities offered us everything we wanted for ourselves and our guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Loft is the only property of it's type at Lagada Resort, in size, layout, and finish. The roof terrace has to be seen to be appreciated, even after you have seen the photographs.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Lovely apartment with sea views. Pool area well kept and plenty sun beds. Areti and the rest of the staff very friendly and helpful. We didn’t arrive at property until about 1am and Anthony was there to take us to our apartment. The only issue was the WiFi in the apartment didn’t work properly but the pool and cafe WiFi were good.
Wonderful relaxing time in The Loft
The Loft lived up to our expectations, well equipped, spacious and very clean and tidy. The pool and all the communal areas seamed well looked after and the staff at Lagada are all very friendly. The hot tub on the roof was a real blessing as was the whole roof terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining and sun bathing. We went in October when it was very quiet and virtually were able to have the whole place to ourselves which was great. The resort is pretty easy to get to from the airport and it was easy to explore Eastern Crete from here. We had a great time, thank you very much. Philip Oct 18
Lovely apartment. Well looked after nicely decorated
Had a fantastic 10 days in 'The Loft'. Everything we needed and lots of help from Areti and Anthony. Although we had issues with the apartments own wi-fi during our stay (it seems it was an area wide problem), this didn't detract away from the fantastic and relaxing time we had. Everything was so much better than advertised.
Thank you very much once again and hope to see you soon.
A very comfortable apartment. Comfortable beds and a great roof terrace with far reaching views.
Modern with great air conditioning and mosquito blinds to the main doors.
Well equipped, washing machine, dishwasher etc.
Maybe a dining table on terrace from lounge would be useful for breakfast, etc without going up to the roof terrace if not using the BBQ.
All in all a lovely place to stay, views and complex pool exceptional.
Thanks for your kind words Julie. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in The Loft.
We have considered an additional external dining table & chairs on the lounge balcony, but then other people say they like the additional space to sit more people out there on the lounging furniture.
We'll keep it under review, and thanks again.
It was our first time in Crete and everything was really good. The first contact with Steve and Julie was very good, every question we had was answered quick. Our arrival in the condominium was perfect: The manager shows everything and the loft was perfect. The estate is very nice and clean, the pool was great and we enjoyed the sunset in whirlpool.
The beaches we founded where great, on some there was no people. Sometimes the beaches are with stones, my wife bought some swimshoes. Some others was with sand. The taverns in the small towns are very good, we had no bad expiriences. All people are very hospitable, no matter where.
We would recommend a car there for all time. We made some trips and discovered some really nice spots. We liked Agios Nicolaus and Sintia very much.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay, we will come back! Thanks for our perfect holiday.
Hi Torsten. We hope you come back and stay with us again. Thanks for your kind words. Much appreciated.
Marvellous - peace and luxury and fun for all the kids!
A great week at The Loft. Many thanks!
Thanks for your kind words Richard. We are delighted that your family enjoyed your stay at The Loft and we hope you consider staying with us again.
During the peak season the on-site 'Lagada Cafe-Bar' serves food & drinks for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just coffee, beer, wine & cocktails throughout the day.
On the South East coast of Crete, with a mountain backdrop, Makrigialos benefits from a micro-climate giving it the best weather on the island. Makrigialos has a small, lively harbour that comes alive at night with numerous local restaurants and cafes serving the freshest local food. This is not an area that is commercialised or abounds with nightclubs. If you want a taste of the real Crete, this is for you. The area is famous for the production of the finest olive oil in the world. The natural beauty of the coast is simply staggering with deserted coves and bays seemingly round every turn. Local waterside tavernas welcome you with cool drinks and delicious food. The nearest towns of Ierapetra and Sitia both have bustling water fronts with cafes spilling out onto the promenades. Both have good shopping, but if you want to go a step further, Heraklion offers shopping to international standards. The area offers all manner of activities & water sports. Spinalonga is well worth a day trip.
