“All was absolutely great!”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

It was one of the best holiday me and my family have had ever!
Apartment was beautiful. All staff is new, good cleaning is each third day. Location is perfect- just few meters from the sea.
The owners was very kind and friendly, ready to help with any issue.
We would like to come back here again!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The apartment is on the second floor, 6 metres from the sea with a balcony around two sides and the most beautiful view of the bay. A very short walk to the centre of Elounda.
All on the flat!! It is not a clinical modern apartment but has a very homely feel to it. I have read several comments saying that the bathroom needs to be upgraded but everything works and how long do you spend in the bathroom when you are on holiday anyway?
It is spotlessly clean and airy with doors from each room opening on to the balcony.
The Psmarnis family who own the apartment (and several across the road) are the perfect hosts. Kind, funny and very generous.
My wife and I spent a perfect 9 days here and cannot wait to return.
I do not like giving reviews like this in case we find the apartment booked up the next time we try to come here!!

“Superb views!”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The view from this apartment across the bay is strikingly beautiful. Although it is too sunny to sit on the balcony before about 10.00am, for the rest of the day and the evening you can enjoy the lovely views and the wonderful atmosphere just sitting and relaxing on the large balcony which stretches around the whole apartment. The apartment is well equipped, has good TV and Wi-Fi reception and is comfortable. The kitchen was fine and the washing machine was very useful. The bathroom, however, was disappointing and definitely needs to be up-graded. The apartment is very well situated close to the restaurants, shops and harbour. Despite being close to the liveliest part of Elounda it is surprisingly quiet and we slept very well there. The owners were very helpful.

We had 10 days at this unique apartment, a real home from home, the apartment had everything you could possibly need with selfcatering apartment. It was fully equipped including washing machine and very good wifi connection. It was spacious, traditionally furnished, comfortable and the wrap around balcony with its amazing views made this a fabulous apartment. The only negative was the bathroom although fully functional could do with an update. Was very good value for money would recommend for anyone wanting a holiday in a beautiful resort with wonderful people a true taste of Greece.

“As discribed beautiful location”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A lovely 2 bedroom apartment all facilities. overlooking the sea watching the sun rise over the mountains every morning and looking at the view of the sea best location ever. Bathroom needs updating but otherwise a lovely little apartment. Would return again. Bars and restaurants 3 min walk but no noise from any. Elounda is a stunning village.
Michael the owner was very hospitable. We also had my partners 13 year old and she really enjoyed it too.

“Location Location Location!”

A few steps away from the waters edge, stunning views over the bay, Spinalonga peninsula and island from the furnished top floor balcony which can be accessed from both bedrooms and living/kitchen area. It's an easy 5 min walk to 2/3 nice beaches, shops, very large assortment of bars and restaurants and the marina for catching the ferry to Spinalonga island - a must do!

A traditional, comfortable apartment with all you'd need for a self-catering holiday. There is air con but the layout of the apartment's doors and windows allows the wonderful ever persistant breeze to circulate around nicely so we only ever felt the need to have it on at night for a short while. Sitting out having breakfast gazing over the town and the bay it was easy to be completely mesmerised by the scenery. The owner Michael is such a friendly guy and was very professional & helpful both prior to the booking and during our stay, he arranged excellent taxi transport to and from the airport at a good price, met us on arrival and on the day of departure even brought us a gift of a large tin of Crete honey - delicious.

If I had to pick on one aspect of the apartment I'd change, I'd say (as has been mentioned in previous reviews), that the bathroom needs upgrading. However, please don't let this put you off, everything works and is clean (just a little worn in patches & dated), the shower is powerful.. once you get used to the 'retro' look you won't care, there are no other problems, also the cleaner comes every 3rd day to clean and change linen and towels.

This was my first visit to Elounda (& Crete) and I am bowled over by the beauty of this area, the warmth and hospitality of the people despite the obvious worries they must have is humbling, they are as sunny as the weather!. We didn't have one bad meal or bottle of wine or encounter any bad service anywhere in 11 nights and we ate out every night. The generosity is amazing, you could wander from bar to bar and fill up on all the complimentary nibbles if you really wanted! After dinner all restaurants would offer complimentary fruit, dessert and shots (ouch!!)

Please don't let the current politics in Greece put you off going, when we were there the cash machines were dispensing any amount to tourists (obviously this could change), however we did take sufficient Euros with us just in case and I think this would be the sensible thing to do & certainly appreciated by the local businesses. This apartment has a safe - so all's well there, although to be honest there doesn't seem to be any crime....?

I was truly sad to leave and this holiday is probably one of the best I've ever had.

Congratulations Michael (& Elounda) on getting it so right :))
