We booked through last minute.com and stayed from 29/09/13 for 14 nights, requested a villa with a sea view which we got.
First off, we wouldn't say its suitable for families with small children/toddlers or elderly/disabled people due to the amount of steps inside and out.
The villas are situated on the bottom of the hillside off the main road into town and so there is a bit of traffic noise during the day but it's not intrusive and you can't hear a thing once inside the villa at night.
The villas are clean and bright with an upstairs terrace overlooking its own garden area and downstairs there is another terrace out from the bedroom onto the garden area. You can access the garden from the outside steps that lead down from the upstairs terrace. The stairs down to the lower level consist of a spiral staircase .
The views are amazing.
The kitchen is adequately equipped everything you need apart from a microwave.
The owner Sarah has told us that she is upgrading the entire complex this winter and it should be even more lovely.
Sarah was always around for any help we wanted, she was very helpful and happy to advise us .
On the first night we walked into elounda bay it took 15 minutes but there is a bus service that runs every hour.
A taxi costs 6 euros one way.
We hired a car at eagle car hire in elounda bay very good deal!
The villa was cleaned daily mon thru fri but not on sat or sun.
We had clean towels on each of those days and the bedding was changed every two days.
The owner and her staff could not have been more helpful.
There is a gang of the usual suspects going round the island entering hotels/apartments and stealing cash etc, this is happening all over the island and anyone going on holiday should not take unnecessary risks. Always lock your valuables away or keep them on your person, always make sure you'd doors are locked when you go out and at night, dont leave valuables laying around on view, you wouldn't do it at home!
Unfortunately one of the villas was entered into in the night and money etc was taken.
There are no security measures on site, the complex is open to anyone walking in!
Having said that we can only go on our own experience and would like to say we had a wonderful stay, it was very peaceful, relaxing and the weather was brilliant, elounda bay is beautiful and we shall be returning once all the renovations have been done.
