'The Loft' is a truly amazing penthouse. It is totally unique, and designed to a luxurious specification. With two en-suite bedrooms, a magnificent 100m2 private roof terrace with hot tub, stunning sea & mountain views, and huge shady balcony spanning the entire width of the property, it is the premium property in Makrigialos. The only 90m2 penthouse at Bayview, it accommodates up to six comfortably. The master double bedroom with en-suite, the second double/twin bedroom with en-suite, with another full-size double fold-down bed built-in to the living room wall. Both bedrooms have fully independent air conditioning, as does the enormous open plan living and dining area. The entire property has been fitted out to the highest standards with marble floors, travertine & glass surfaces, and has a contemporary, design led interior. Every attention to detail has been paid to make this stunning property the epitome of luxury accommodation. The kitchen includes a dishwasher & washing machine, and of course coordinating appliances and fittings. The main balcony is fully furnished with stylish furniture & is fronted by a glass balustrade that maximises the incredible views from the main living area and the master bedroom. The second bedroom has it's own private balcony, and there is another balcony from the kitchen. The roof terrace has been fully furnished to offer an enormous private area for sunbathing, dining, relaxing, and of course enjoying the hot tub. Sitting in the hot tub at night, with a cool drink, looking over the sea and mountains is magical.

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 Lasithi
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.

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.
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.
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.
Absolutely loved our stay!
Thanks Rebecca. We are always delighted when our guests both enjoy their stay and spend your time to write a review.
We hope to welcome you back.

Breathtaking - we loved it!
We had a wonderful stay at The Loft. The photographs do not do the penthouse justice. It is beautifully presented and well maintained throughout. The inside living space is luxurious and spacious with everything we needed for our stay. The balcony on the first floor has very comfortable and modern seating, overlooking the pool and the sea. The rooftop, however, has the wow factor with more seating areas, a BBQ, sun loungers and a hot-tub. The kids squealed with delight when they first saw the rooftop. The Loft is situated in a small, quiet complex about 5 to 10 minutes drive from the small town of Makrigialos. The nearest beach is only 10 minutes walk away but it's worth the 20 minute walk to Green Beach (Diaskari) where there is a wonderful taverna with sun-loungers and hammocks. The grounds of the complex are very well maintained and the pools are wonderful. There is a small bar which has a friendly, relaxing atmosphere and is a lovely place to have a coffee or a glass of wine. The complex is managed by Areti and her team who could not have been more welcoming and friendly. One of our holiday highlights was kayaking with Antonis (who also works in the bar). He took us to the most wonderful, secluded beaches where we enjoyed a picnic he had prepared. I'd thoroughly recommend this. We absolutely loved our first experience of Greece - Crete is stunning, the food is delicious but the people are what made it for us. We never return to the same place twice but we may well make an exception!
We are delighted that you & your family enjoyed your stay at The Loft Lorna. I will specifically pass on your kind comments & thanks to Areti & her team.
We hope to welcome you back soon.

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.
