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.

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!
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.

The Loft, Lagada Bay - Beautiful, inside and out!
Everything in this property on the inside and outside has been beautifully thought out. Steve and Julie have created a space that is stylish and luxurious but comfortable with everything you could need. The private roof terrace is amazing with comfy seating, fab views and of course the hot tub! As we were very early in the season the pool was a little chilly so the hot tub was great to jump in and warm up after a dip. The Loft is clean and well kept, the beds were the most comfortable we've ever had on holiday, the wi-fi was great and all the kitchen equipment was in good order.
Booking with Steve and Julie was stress free and Areti the complex manager was friendly and helpful and on hand to help with advice on everything from where to eat or directions.
The complex itself is also beautifully maintained with lovely planting, gorgeous pools and the lovely new Lagada Bay cafe.
There is a beach two minutes walk away and the locals bars and restaurants that we tried were all great, very friendly and tasty food.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay in The Loft again and would recommend it to anyone. Looking forward to visiting again soon :)
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are always delighted when our guests enjoy their stays. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Another fantastic break at The Loft
We have just spent another luxurious break at this stunning apartment. This time we were accompanied by our 16 year old daughter. She was immediately impressed by the beautiful interior of the apartment and was especially pleased with the addition of Apple TV which kept her entertained throughout our stay. Rosemary was lovely as usual it was so nice to have such a lovely warm welcome from her. She is very approachable and close at hand to offer any assistance required. It was nice to return to the local shops and taverns to find the local people were just as warm and welcoming and many of the villagers remembered us from last year. The only request we would make is for the bean bags on the roof terrace to be replaced. The sun had taken its toll on them and they had burst just prior to our arrival, we really missed them as we found them much more comfortable than the loungers for sun bathing on the roof terrace. We will definitely return for another relaxing holiday at this 5 star apartment.
We are glad you enjoyed your most recent stay. We hope to see you again soon. We are considering looking at different types of outdoor beanbags for next season on the roof terrace as everyone seems to like them!
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.
