We spent two days here visiting the castle town and the surrounding area. This apartment is a very comfortable two story unit right on the beach road. The location was perfect for us. The kitchen and upper bedroom windows look directly at the beach in front and at the ‘rock’, but the entry door is on the back side facing the main road. There is no noise despite the fact that the restaurants and the beach promenade are directly in front. (The access to the beach and promenade is less than 20 meters along the road.).
The apartment has everything needed for a successful stay. A few essentials are in the kitchen, the beds are very comfortable, the bathroom is completely modern, and the feel is like you are visiting a real home, not a sterile vacation rental.
As one reviewer noted, you must be aware that the bedrooms are up a tight but very safe and easy spiral staircase, so if you have large suitcases it will be a challenge. Fortunately we had small bags.
We spent one day visiting the medieval town and climbing to the top of the rock (which is not as daunting as it looks at first glance), and a second day travelling south to spend the day at the amazing, almost deserted, long sandy beaches of Elefonisi island, which is easily accessible by a short car ferry ride.
We had a lovely stay in Monemasia. It is an ideal place if you are a family and looking for a quite time. the house is divided in 2 parts. the upper floor is very nice and has a beautiful terrasse. the low floor has no direct access and a bit dark with very little windows and no view. there is no Wifi but you can always manage with a coffee around.
