Nick`s beach house in Maridaki, Crete

Nick`s beach house is situated on the south coast of Crete, in the small settlement called Maridaki near Tsoutsouros.

Spectacular water views at the sunny, cozy, clean house of Nick, literally in front of the sea with an enormous yard to relax and live a genuine Cretan experience. The night sky with its infinite stars, provides a breathtaking spectacle (trust me on this). It offers everything you might need for a pleasant stay! Plus it's family friendly!

The space

Bright, airy apartment of 45 sq.m. on the beach, consisting of:
-Kitchen (fully equipped, dining table)
-One Bathroom
-Two Bedrooms
-One enormous yard with shadow (provided by our Tamarix tree) for a relaxing coffee-time and dinner/lunch.

Maridaki apart from the crystal clear, cold waters has many other great things to see. Agios Panteleimonas is a great chapel in the middle of Maridaki that has plenty of shadow in the day to keep you-and your favorite people-cool. Also, using either the wooden bridge of the chapel or walking straight out of the back entrance, you will find yourself in a very traditional café called "Pigi" (spring) that has great food and authentic ice cream from goat milk. The water in the spring is drinkable and personally the best. If you continue through the rough road of Pigi after a kilometer or two you 'll find yourself at a grand waterfall. Lastly, apart from the restaurant at Pigi, there are two taverns on the beach ready to serve you great traditional Cretan food. There is no super-market in Maridaki, just a tavern with some snacks. If you are there for a long stay, you should bring basic supplies apart from the things we provide in our house.

Other than the great scenery and sea of Maridaki, you can always visit many places with a short hiking outside of Maridaki.

A)Near Maridaki is Agios Nikitas monastery that has a secret, gorgeous, peaceful, small beach that you can access by stairs. Agios Nikitas was the Saint that protected a group of people that were hiding from the Turks in the Turkish occupation in the 1800s. The monastery has an enormous garden with lots of fruits.

B)A bit further from Agios Nikitas Monastery, there is a big palm forest that it is said it was created from African pirates that arrived in southern Crete with nothing to eat. They started eating fruits that found and started tossing them behind as they were climbing up the mountain. In that way, it is said, the palm forest was created.

C)Lastly, you can always visit Tsoutsouras for an afternoon, spending some time with the more touristic side of Southern Crete.
