We had an amazing time! Loved the unit and the living space. Great host!!! Location couldn't be more perfect. We will most definitely be back this year and every year after. Location in Heroldsbay is so private and remote. Perfect for couples or a small family looking to experience exclusiveness and something completely different. Most definitely a must visit space!

We enjoyed staying at Makarios, the location with the views is excellent and the hospitality and friendliness was well experience. There is a few things that can improve: 1) Bigger, more modern TV 2) Decent, stable table on the balcony - since this is where you spend most of your time the cheap plastic table and chairs did not do justice to the "outside dining" experience 3) Fix the light in the braai 4) Remind the staff not to take cleaning stuff from the unit - I had to go ask for the cleaning cloth twice after they left 5) Parking arrangements can be improved

Thank you for your review Josua, 1) A bigger more modern TV is a matter of taste. 2) You do not realize the extent of corrosion at the beach - therefor he plastic table and chairs on the balcony. 3) I will see to the bulb in the braai . You could have reported that to me sooner and I could have changed the bulb. 4) I apologize that my very busy staff did not replaced the dish cloth. I pointed their "neglect" out to them. 5) Parking is a problem in Herold's Bay - specially during peak season. Unfortunately I can not inprove that! Have a great 2022!

We stayed in adjacent apartments with our friends on the second floor of Makarios on Sea. The views across Herold's Bay from our balcony were beautiful, especially at sunset. The property is situated right on the beach front, within easy walking distance of the beach bathing area and a little way from the tidal pool bathing facility.
