My wife and I had an amazing 4-day stay in quiet Falasarna, staying in apartment no. 9 (ground floor). The apartment was clean and modern, had everything we needed, plus newly installed air conditioning, and a great view. Local shop very short walk away. We were even able to pick figs from a tree in the garden!

A short 450m walk to the beach (Falasarna Beach is one of the best on this West coast) and surrounded by tavernas with delicious local cuisine. This is a an amazing place for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

A huge efharisto poli (thank you) to the owner Amalia, who was very helpful. Making our trip very special.

My husband and I stayed at Magnolia for 2 weeks in September and I have to say it was simply perfect. The owners Giannis (altho speaks no english, but is extremely accommodating!) and Amalia are excellent hosts and very warm people. Our second or third night they invited us for an impromptu international dinner where we immediately made friends with other guests and the hosts' friends. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and enjoyable.
We stayed in room #7 (apartment), and it was really good. The huge glass sliding doors in both the living room and the bedroom are perfect to enjoy a lot of Cretan sunlight. The outdoor patio with a magnificent view of the turquoise seas and a new sunset each night are unbelievable!!
You have parking, air-conditioner, kitchenette... we really didn't feel like anything was missing!
The only drawback i can think of is the shower - the shower head needs replacement because the flow is way too strong, but i will notify the owners of this in a private message. I'm sure they'll fix it in no time.
It was so good i am almost reluctant to recommend Magnolia and Falassarna for your stay :)

We cannot praise Falarsarna and Magnolia apartments enough. The apartments are clean, well equipped and have beautiful views of the sea. The verandah is large and has a lovely breeze from the sea - perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book. The owners, Yannis and Amelia are very helpful and overall, Magnolia is excellent value. Falarsana is unspoilt, peaceful and perfect for chilling out and getting away from it all. This year will be our third visit!

We stayed in apartment number 5 for four nights in May. The apartment is great value for only 45 euros a night - everything you need is there, spotlessly clean, and serviced daily. Fantastic balcony with views over the sea - we watched the sun set every night before heading off to a local taverna, or cooking ourselves. There's a little shop just 100m away selling all the bascis, plus decent local wine 3 euros per litre. The main beach has great waves for body surfing, and further along are quieter coves. It's a fair old walk to the ancient minoan settlement but well worth a visit. We thought Galasia Thea had the best food in the area. Recommend their fennel pies.

When I searched the Internet to find the right place for my holiday in Crete, my objective was to find a tranquil, romantic "Cretan-style" apartment close to the sea. Well, I was not disappointed. Magnolia gave me exactly what I had been looking for. If you love the sea, with its sound and colours, and want to find a place which is respectful of nature, Magnolia is perfect. The apartments are just a few minutes walk from the beach but the design of the buildings don't alter the landscape (the colours are the same of the promontory in the background!). Amalia and John are very friendly and helpful and will try to meet your needs and requests. We were interested in the private boat service which reaches Balos from Falassarna but did not know how to get to the port, which is quite distant if you don't have a vehicle. They called the boat company, who picked us up with no extra cost! We also borrowed some bikes from them to get to our favourite restaurants. Extra tip: don't miss the Cretan Salad and the view of Sun Set Restaurant!

Magnolia apartment , studios is beautifully situated and well run by Amalia... she met our every need, was very friendly and informative and even bought us a carafe of wine, on meeting up at a restaurant
We stayed for a week May 10th to 17th and had a wonderful time .
The apartments which are modern, very well maintained and cleaned throughout the stay, overlook the sea and are 5 minutes walk to the beautiful beach... I went walking and swimming every day before breakfast
The entrance to the properties faces the rising sun,popping up from behind great and rugged mountains, with a cooling breeze from the sea through the apartment ... we did not use the air con once despite highish 20s of temperature.
We hired a car , went to Elafonissi ... check out an amazing place called Milia on advice from Amalia!! stunning.... went three times to George and his mum ( the cook ) at Vassili , quite close
... thoroughly enjoyed Botanical gardens of Crete at Fournes .... very rough road to Balos was worth the trip...
great value at 40 euros per night
Highly recommend this place
Amalia has created a wonderful , multi - fragrant garden which is a beautiful and pleasant surrounding to the apartments

Our 1st time there we were impressed by its cleanness, the well kept greenery and the spaciousness of the studios. The mattress was just perfect too. There's private parking for each guest. We will certainly return.

Magnolia Apartments Studios is a perfect location in Falassarna, especially if you have no car! The Falassarna Big Beach is a 5 minute walk (including 3 excellent tavernas), there is an excellent well stocked marketplace 2 minutes away, really excellent traditional Cretan restaurant (Adam Taverna) 2 minutes away, an ATM (10 minute walk) and many other restaurant options within a 10 minute walk. The property itself is in immaculate condition with beautiful flowers and gardens while the studios are spacious, sparkling clean (daily service) and have either a balcony (second floor) or terrace (first floor) all with amazing views of the sunsets if you do not stay at the beach. Without a car, you can easily do excursions to Elafonisis Beach (with Strata Tours) or Balos Beach (with a local cruise company) although we loved Falassarna Beach the most as it was less crowded and less touristy. The beach is so clean, and has crystal clear waters, sandy bottom with virtually no rocks and you can walk out easily 50-100 meters before it gets deep. We were concerned as we heard it can be very rough but when we visited in June it was very pleasant with a nice breeze and many families were there with small children playing in the water without difficulty. We stayed at Magnolia for 5 nights and it was an excellent choice for relaxation after traveling around Greece for 3 weeks. It was so serene and peaceful especially in the mornings and evenings and we would highly recommend staying here as it was the highlight of our trip. The owner Amalia was very charming and helpful in every way before and during our visit. One thing to note is that the property is offered through both AirBnB and through their own website, so it is best to contact Amalia directly to confirm what units are really available at any given time.

We stayed 7 nights in the small studio (2 people).
Here are our impressions and facs:
Beautiful location, beaches at Phalasarna are famous. We used to stay at the northest beach where the Orange blue bar is (best bar over there, trust me).
Apartments are really clean. Every day cleaning! Place is quiet, very nice garden, if you have children, they will be safe there (it is not by the road).
It is good starting point for many trips. This time we went to Elafonisi, Balos lagoon and Sougia.
Amalia is always there. And helps you all the time.
Taverna Adam is fifty meters away. Great minimarket with everything is one hundred meters. Just GREAT.
The last thing - the apartments are surprisingly cheap for the value they offer. That is my opinion.
