About Marinos Alexandopoulos

I was born in Rethymnon but lived most of my life in Athens and NY where i did my studies in Business and Marketing and also worked for the Greek National Tourist Office. In 2006 returned to Rethymno as a business loan manager at the local Alpha bank branch and in 2009 decided to renovate my families residence into three comfortable apartments. I enjoy meeting people from around the world, offering warm hearted hospitality and helping them have great holidays in Crete.

Marinos Alexandopoulos purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Marinos Alexandopoulos chose Rethimno

This property was bought at 1895 from my great grand parents and was the family home of my mother in her younger years. It is located in the center of the pedestrian promenade, where the old town meets the sandy beach of Rethymno and it is one of the three restored apartments in the family residence with unobstructed sea views in a spacious accommodation of 60m². Traditional Cretan elements such as the arches in the kitchen and the wooden ceilings blend in with the modern comforts of a luxury boutique hotel. It has always been my dream to give life back to this house and make it a unique accommodation for visitors.

What makes this apartment unique

This family apartment features facilities such as fully equipped kitchen, living room area, dining area and separate bedrooms. Every room is equipped with flat screen satellite TV, air-conditioning and double glass window/balcony doors to ensure a relaxing holiday. You will also find an office desk with a laptop computer, a cordless phone and of course free of charge Wifi.

Near the residence you can visit historic sites of Rethymno (Rimondi fountain, mosques, old churches, venetian houses), wander around the stone paved alleys of the old town and discover romantic cafes and traditional gift shops, dine at the fish taverns of the Venetian Harbor, or walk barefooted on the seaside across our hotel

Whether you choose to spend your time at the beach, go out in Rethymno town or enjoy some local wine at your private balcony you can be sure that your stay at Casa Maistra Residence will always be memorable...

Rethymno, the third largest town in Crete, is lying at the north coast of the island, between Heraklion and Chania. It is surely one of the most beautiful towns in Greece displaying a unique cultural blend of Venetian, Cretan and Turkish history.

Apart from the largest Renaissance old town in Greece, Rethymno is also famous for the longest sandy beach on Crete, stretching 12 km from Casa Maistra Residence apart hotel to the east, filled with lively taverns and cafes. On the west side of the hotel, the idyllic Venetian harbor and the impressive “ Fortezza ” fortress are only some minutes of a romantic walk from the property. This ideal location makes it a unique accommodation in Rethymno.

In addition to all the above, many Rethymnon holiday festivals that take place near the hotel like the wine Festival of Cretan diet products, folk music and Cretan dances, church feasts, Renaissance festivals and the famous Rethymno Carnival keep the town very much alive throughout the whole year. Rethymno still remains a holiday destination in Crete where the visitor can experience the pure Cretan “philoxenia” unaffected from commercialized mass tourism and our property is a perfect example of such exceptional hospitality.
