About Marinos Alexandropoulos

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 Alexandropoulos purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Marinos Alexandropoulos chose Rethymno

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 stone walls 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 in your suite you can be sure that your stay at Casa Maistra Residence will always be memorable...

Fabulous suite in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The Agora suite was perfection. The kitchen had all you need, including fresh bread and treats from the owner. The suite was spacious and right in the heart of the old town and the only noise we could hear was the church bells tolling.

The owner, Marinos, was very knowledgeable about the area and provided recommendations on all types of activities. While here check out Angeli's gelato.

We'd highly recommend this place, look at www.casamaistra.com to see all the available suites. Might be better rates booking directly.
